    A Lovely Lighthearted Read

    Frederica Burghley is the half caste daughter of a Duke and his coloured mistress. Her father loved her mother desperately, so when she died Frederica moved in to live with her father. No matter how perfectly she behaves everyone still treats her as the daughter of a whore. The only way to be totally respectable is to marry. Unfortunately the adverts she put in the paper have encouraged a dangerous man. Jasper Fitzwilliam, the Viscount Hartwell is a widower with three young daughters. He is very good friends with Frederica but left his heart firmly in the grave of his wife. However he will protect her from the mysterious villain. A sweet Victorian historical romance that is part of a series featuring the lives of women of colour in a difficult time. Emotional and amusing with a sprinkling of danger. A very entertaining read.

    The Butterfly Bride

    A story of the difficulties life can bring and the way to happiness. Frederica Burghley is in search of a husband before her father finds one for her. Advertising in the paper seemed the logical place to start. Unfortunately it brought out a scary response with threats to her life. She goes to her friend, Jasper who has two children and is a widower. But he ends up doing more than just protecting her, she wants him to help her find a suitable husband! What's a man to do? Keeping her safe from a dangerous man and caring for her more than he wants, he tries to hold back his affections. After all, he has not gotten over the death of his wife. This was really a very sweet romance that is part of the Advertisements for Love series. Amusing and heartwarming you will be swept up into the Victoria era and will not want to turn the last page. Although this is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. I read this through NetGallery

    Romance and intrigue

    The book starts with someone breaking into Miss Frederica Burghley's room. She is the Duke of Simone’s illegitimate daughter. They stole jewelry and cut up some of her clothes. Whoever did this has been sending threatening letters for a few months. Jasper, Lord Hartwell has been more than a good friend to her. She calls him her errand man because she keeps asking him to do things for her. Jasper calls her Butterfly. Jasper, a thirty three years old widower with three children is very attracted to her, but he is still in love with his dead wife, Maria. He just can't love another until his heart is ready. When Frederica's father goes on his honeymoon, he leaves Frederica in Jasper's care. She has advertised for a husband and wants to be married by Yuletide. He has agreed to look over the prospects before allowing her to marry. She loves Jasper but won't marry him until he can say he loves her, too. Racial issues are touched upon as Frederica is at least part black. I liked the book but thought Jasper and Frederica were somewhat childish. Will they find out who is threatening Frederica before she gets hurt and will Jasper learn to love again? I received this book from Net Galley and Entangled Publishing for a honest review and no compensation otherwise.The opinions are my own

    Friends to lovers

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. The Butterfly Bride is the 4th book in Vanessa Riley’s Advertisements For Love Series. I found this book difficult to read as a stand-alone, many times I was confused and felt that I was missing something and so would recommend that you read the other books in the series first. I also had a problem with the narration of the book in the beginning because the narrator has been drugged and is confused and then later and then later because the narrative was like a butterfly flitting here and there and I had to struggle to make sense of the story. I don’t think I ever came to a true understanding of the characters in the book. Frederica Burghley is the daughter of a duke but her mother was his mistress not his wife and so even though Frederica lives with the duke her position is precarious, in that she doesn’t feel secure as she is of mixed race, the Duke has never made her feel secure in his love, she’s been receiving threatening letters and the Duke has recently remarried and she is sure that the new Duchess will not want her around. She has placed an advertisement in the paper looking for a husband. Jasper Fitzwilliam Lord Hartwell is a friend to Frederica and the duke charges him with her care while he is on his honeymoon. Jasper is to help her interview the prospective husbands and keep her safe as the letter writer has become more dangerous. Mildly Steamy.
