Hamilton's Battalion: A Trio of Romances - Courtney Milan,Alyssa Cole,Rose Lerner 
Hamilton's Battalion: A Trio of Romances - Courtney Milan,Alyssa Cole,Rose Lerner

I picked up the book for Milan, but also, Hamilton! Three charming stories that explore three different couples with different connections to the the war. All three of these do what I love most in an historic setting: create a realistic scenario, but focus on characters who are traditionally overlooked: Jews in the Revolutionary war, slaves and freedmen of color, and the ways in which women serve both in uniform and not during wartime. And also, three different but concordant pictures of Eliza Hamilton and her great work.

This Wicked Gift (A Carhart Series Novella) (Entangled Edge) - Courtney Milan 
This Wicked Gift (A Carhart Series Novella) (Entangled Edge) - Courtney Milan

7 January, 2017

It's a snowday, which is only a delight on schooldays, not on weekends, which are properly devoted to doing a vast number of things. Not me, I'm perfectly happy to spend a day reading and napping with cats. But for two highschool students who have active social and extracurricular lives, there is consternation. All day long.

 

And then, after supper, there was terrific drama: a loud noise, cats running, blood on the floor. It was necessary to catch the cat, and hold him still, and find a clean washcloth, and run warm water on it, and try to get him to hold still by constant bribes of cat treats, and try and locate the source of the blood, and try to put a spot of antibiotic ointment on a twenty-two pound cat, and then trying to figure out a way to bandage the tail, which clearly wasn't bothering the cat, but was leaving tiny blood smears every where.

 

Fortunately Calder did not lose half his tail in a violent accident, just the merest square centimeter of skin and fur from the pointy tip. It's only funny if he's fine. But now I have a moment of quiet and I don't have the energy to hunt down something new. So this is good.

It's Here!!!!
Hamilton's Battalion: A Trio of Romances - Courtney Milan,Alyssa Cole,Rose Lerner

I don't pre-order books normally and especially don't pre-order ebooks (they tend to go on sale pretty quickly after release date). I made a big exception for this gem. Came home yesterday after another long day to find it sitting on my Kindle. I may end up reading it during Dewey because I can't hold out until after Halloween bingo.

Unveiled by Courtney Milan 99 cents!
Unveiled - Courtney Milan

Of all Ash Turner's accomplishments, stealing a dukedom from his old enemy is by far the most brazen. Now that he's been recognized as the heir, nothing remains but to head to Parford Manor and survey the estate that will be his. He expects opposition.

He gets Lady Margaret.

Margaret lost everything when Ash claimed the dukedom: her dowry, her legitimacy, and her place in society. Now Ash wants to take her family home, too. She disguises herself as a nurse, determined to learn his weaknesses. But the closer she comes to Ash, the greater the pull of his reckless charm. If she wants to reclaim what she has lost, her only choice is to betray the man she is beginning to love..
