    the rogue's conquest

    Eleanor Townsend was a spinster and an entomologist. She lives with her brother and sister. She has written a paper on her beetles for the Natural History Society. Unfortunately, she is a female and they don't accept papers from females. James MacGregor is a pugilist and he is a Scot. He wants to meet Lady Sarah Lark, she is everything he wants, wealth, connections and she is lovely. I thought the story was excellent, It kept my interest thru out. It was fun and you get to learn about beetles, at least their mating habits. The characters are witty, humorous, but also have a serious side, too. I loved where she felt, she had to tell Lady Sara about her deception and James MacGregor. She liked her to much to hurt her. If you like an easy going read that explains everything then this is the book for you. I received the ARC from Net Galley and voluntarily reviewed.

    Opposites do attract

    This is the first book by Lily Maxton I have read and I loved it! The story centers around two different people, who under normal circumstances would never have come together. Eleanor Townsend is not your normal lady interested marriage, fripperies or the latest fashions. She has a scientific mind and wants to be part of the Natural Historical Society who only allows men in their ranks. Asked to attend to present a paper she had written, she dresses as a man and attends the meeting. Everything goes well until James MacGregor, former prizefighter sees through her disguise. James has an agenda of his own to be introduced to a rich debutante so he can move up in the ranks and finally have all he has desired. So he uses Eleanor to achieve his goal by keeping her secret and she helps him with his manners and introduction to Lady Sarah! The interaction between James and Eleanor is priceless and the sparks fly. This story will keep you turning the pages as quickly as you can. I actually read into the early morning to finish because I was totally intrigued! This book is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone. Cannot wait until the next installment and see beloved characters getting their own story! Well done Lily Maxton!

    Loved it

    'The Rogue's Conquest' by Lily Maxton is Book Two in "The Townsends" Series. This is the story of Eleanor Townsend and James MacGregor. This can be a standalone book. Eleanor lives with her brother and sister. Eleanor is a happy confirmed spinster who in addition is what I would call a Bluestocking. Eleanor loves Science and has even written papers about beetles. Eleanor when wanting to post her work with the Natural History Society she has to pose as a Man because they do not accept women. So she tries to pretends to be a man and is found out by James. James who wants to become a Gentleman along with getting the hand in marriage to Lady Sarah Lark. James thinks that with Eleanor she can help him those goals and if she does he will help keep her secret. But sometimes what you think you want isn't really what you wanted. Loved their story! I could not put this book down! "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
