This was sweet novella and can be read as a standalone if you haven’t read the Iron Seas series. ~ Under the Covers
Much like this novella, I am keeping this review short ‘n sweet. If you have read Meljean Brook’s Iron Seas series you will be familiar with Edward Newberry, a secondary, yet important character in The Iron Duke. This novella is set before The Iron Duke and tells the tale of how and why Newberry came to England with his brand new wife.
Like with everything else Meljean Brook has written, I really enjoyed this, Newberry was a great character in The Iron Duke; he is slightly prudish and prone to blushing at the slightest impropriety; basically adorable. In this book Newberry needs to convince the wife that he tricked into a forced marriage, to love him as much as he has fallen for her.
This was sweet novella and can be read as a standalone if you haven’t read the Iron Seas series. It gives us Constable Newberry’s back story and shows that he is not just an intelligent and honest policeman, but an adoring and loving husband as well.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
