ARC REVIEW A Lady's Past by A.S. Fenichel
A Lady's Past (Everton Domestic Society, #4)Everton Domestic Society #4, I have enjoyed the entire series so far, they can be read as standalones. The Everton Domestic Society prides itself on finding the right woman for the job needed. Jacques Laurent has seen the proof of the good the employment agency for Ladies does so when he sees a Lady stranded on the side of the road obviously running from something he recommends her going to Everton. Reluctantly Diana goes but only after confiding in Lady Jane the nature of her past that she felt safe enough in staying. Lady Jane even set up a job in Diana's prefered subject, chemistry; with a footman/guard and no one else knowing Diana's true past she started to feel a little safe.

Jacques was deceived once before by his fiancee and it has jaded him, he finds it hard to trust again but in the three weeks since he met Diana she was never far from his thoughts. Imagine his surprise when he goes to his friend/investment, inventor Francis Edgebrook, and finds he has hired an Everton Lady as his assistant, Diana to be exact. There is something about Diana that calls to him, he knows she's in danger but he would rather remove the obstacle than risk never seeing her again. It's a good thing he's got friends in high places. He works hard to earn Diana's trust and her love.

Overall, it was a great read. I love all the characters. You have no idea how long I have waited for a story where the characters are called Jack and Diane, this is the closest I've gotten yet. It's a beautifully written romance with enough intrigue to keep it interesting and humor and angst in all the right places.

it was okay
Foolish Bride - A.S. Fenichel

Sir Michael Rollins and Lady Elinor Burkenstock are engaged. Sir Michael is a knight  but with very little money as his ancestors were not smart with what they had and all he had inherited was a fallen down estate. Elinor’s father had recently became an Earl and money isn’t an issue with her family. But Michael is proud and determined to be able to support his wife and he hadn’t married her for her dowry. And not live off her family. Michael is a spy for the king and he has one more mission to do But Elinor doesn’t know Michael is a spy. Michael say he will be back in a month and they will then marry. But Michael isn’t back in a month as he was injured and told he could father no children. Elinor’s father has told her he is calling off the wedding to Michael. But her father also told Elinor that Michael had agreed to end the engagement which wasn’t true Then her mother tells her Michael can no longer get her pregnant. He is now impotent. Michael is not willing to saddle Elinor with a man in his shape. Michael and Elinor part in anger. Elinor goes to her best friend’s house party and sees  Preston and they become friends but then The Duke Of Middleton- Preston - becomes interested in Elinor and this makes Elinor’s mother happy. Preston is kind, handsome, and has a good personality but Elinor still loves Michael. But Elinor thinks she may have to marry Preston as she has to marry someone and it would get her mother off her back. But Michael is a Duke now for his service to the crown. Michael realizes he still loves Elinor and now has to make Elinor believe he still and always will love her. But then Elinor is kidnapped and must be rescued before she is tortured and forced to marry her captor. This was done to make Elinor suffer. Elinor stabbed her abductor and helped with her getting saved.

I had mixed feelings about this book but I did like it for the most part.I didn’t like how Michael was a butt to Elinor after their broken engagement. I know he was angry but he was still suppose to love Elinor. Also when in this time frame would a cop/friend would tell a man he had been made a Duke for his service to the crown? I think there would be a lot of paperwork and pomp and  circumstance at least to some degree especially since it was for service given. Also some of the wording just didn’t fit in the Regency setting. I felt Michael was a bit pitiful for the most part in this book. I really enjoyed seeing elinor grow into the woman she was to be and not be pushed around by her parents like when she took a stand on who she was going to marry although that wasn’t normal for this time either. I would advise you to read the books in order so everything reads smoothly. I did like the twists and turns in this book. But it drag for me at times. THis book had romance, a villian, two love interests, parental control, character growth, dukes, an  Earl, danger, kidnapping, intrigue, bold moves, adventure, and so much more. As I said I had mixed feelings but I would have liked to rate this 3.5.

Emotional read, strong characters.
A Lady's Honor - Otto Fenichel

I thoroughly enjoyed Phoebe. She knew what she wanted to do and did not truly care what others thought. She was faced with a situation of heartbreak, lost love, and despair. Despite her feelings, she managed to turn things around for Markus, but she was blind to her own world. I love the second chance at love to show one can love more than once in a lifetime. The Everton Domestic Society was a wonderful idea. I loved this story and recommend it. I look forward to more in the series.

I received a copy of this story through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.

Love gets a second chance
Foolish Bride - A.S. Fenichel

Missed opportunities and misunderstandings have Elinor struggling to put her love for Michael aside and find another husband. She cannot settle for less than what she shared with Michael. As Michael tries to prove himself and beg her forgiveness, Elinor finds life a bit more intriguing. Their love remains strong as they work through their hurt feelings. I enjoyed this story, especially how Elinor clung to her love for Michael. She wanted to find happiness, but it would not come until her trust in Michael returned.

Foolish Bride
Foolish Bride - A.S. Fenichel

4.5 Stars
'Foolish Bride' by A.S. Fenichel is book Two in the "Forever Brides' series.  This is the story of Sir Michael Rollins and Elinor Burkenstock.  I have read the previous book but feel this can be a standalone book.  Michael and Elinor where engaged to be married.  Michael has been trying to earn more money to be more 'worthy' of Elinor.  But when he is injured her father who is now become an Earl chooses to end their engagement.   Michael is hurt at first but knows that since he has been told he may never be a 'man' again, so Michael gave in to the Earls request to end the engagement.  But Elinor sneaked into his house to talk to him but she could not get his mind changed.  Elinor was a strong character and I liked how she handled Michael.  Michael started off for me a little off when he wasn't strong enough to stand up to her father nor to Elinor when she first sneaked into his house.
But overall I enjoyed this book and can't wait for more books by Ms. Fenichel.
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
