The Persuasion of Miss Kate
“Ms. Baldwin has done it again, weaving laughter and love into her My Notorious Aunt series. You’re going to fall in love with the Linnet sisters. And if you are anything like me, you’ll be crushing on Lord Colter from the start. Read. Enjoy. Repeat.” —Patience Griffin, bestselling author of the Kilts and Quilts series.
“…the humor was so good! The dialogue had me snorting my laughter . . . a clean romance, but slightly more irreverent than what you might be used to from this genre. I really liked it.” —Alicia Trenalone, NetGalley Top Reviewer.
