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.



About Meljean Brook

Meljean was raised in the middle of the woods, and hid under her blankets at night with fairy tales, comic books, and romances. She left the forest and went on a misguided tour through the world of accounting before focusing on her first loves, reading and writing–and she realized that monsters, superheroes, and happily-ever-afters are easily found between the covers, as well as under them, so she set out to make her own.

Meljean lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and daughter.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

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?
