The Story of a Baron (The Sisters of the Aristocracy) (Volume 1)

What will she discover when she reads between the lines? Jeffrey Althorpe is in need of more income for the struggling Sommers barony. As a peer of the realm, he’s not allowed to work, but if he’s able to earn money from a book he’s written – anonymously, of course – no one will be the wiser. A dowry would be easier, but then he would have to find a woman willing to marry a baron. While her brother, the Earl of Everly, is away on one of his lengthy expeditions, Lady Evangeline is left behind in London to spend her days creating exquisite embroideries and reading books. She’s about to buy The Story of a Baron at The Temple of Muses when Lord Sommers suddenly appears. He’s intent on buying the very same book, but there’s only the one copy. Desperate to discover what changes his publisher might have made to his story – without letting on he’s the author – Jeffrey suggests they read it together. Evangeline’s sterling reputation could use a bit of scandal, she decides, and so she agrees to Lord Sommer’s proposal. As the two read The Story a Baron, Evangeline realizes some of the characters and settings are just a bit too familiar. And a bit too close to home. Was she the inspiration for the baron’s secret love, a bold, brash woman whose reputation is in tatters? With her own reputation suddenly in question, Evangeline finds her life imitating art. How can the book have a happy ending when she wishes she’d never purchased The Story of a Baron?

  1. The book was SO much better than this cover To start, I have to say the cover is a little bit stereotypical cheesy romance novel cover. The book was SO much better than this cover. 

  2. Quick read The Story of a Baron by Linda Rae Sande is a fairly short read. This historical romance would be perfect for those with limited time for reading. The Story of a Baron is well written with lovable characters. Ms Sande has delivered drama, humor and sexy bits in Jeffrey and Evangeline’s story. I enjoyed this book and would be happy to read more from Linda Rae Sande in the future. The Story of a Baron is book 1 in the Sisters Of The Aristocracy series but can be read as a standalone. This is…

  3. Good Book… Loved the story within the story, but… This is a good book. I absolutely loved the story within a story. From the very beginning I thought, “hey this could be me!” (I am such a bookworm like Lady E.) However, this book was a little slow in places, and I didn’t read it in all one or two sittings. For me a great book is a book you stay up with, because you simply just cannot put it down. With that being said, a good editor knows how to trim down some of the fat. Regardless, if you like regency era historical romance books,…
