Ruining Miss Wrotham
Ruining Miss Wrotham (Baleful Godmother Historical Romance Series Book 5) - Emily Larkin

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

I had been eagerly awaiting the 5th installment of Emily Larkin’s historical romance series, Baleful Godmother, titled Ruining Miss Wrotham for the past couple of months, and it was well worth the wait. For me, this has to be the best installment of this series! I had this feeling of profound happiness when it ended, that even with wanting to read a few more chapters, I was content with how it all played out.

The Baleful Godmother is a Regency-set series based on female characters who have special “gifts” or powers. But if you want to start from the very beginning, you can with The Fey Quartet. These are a set of novellas listed as “prologue” to this series. Set in Medieval-era England, the prologues explain exactly how our unique heroines come to

Books 1 and 2, Unmasking Miss Appleby and Resisting Miss Merryweather had something common in them apart from Baletongue, our dubious Fairy Godmother. Heroines of both of these books, Charlotte and Anne AKA Merry (respectively), were bestowed their gifts at the age of 25, which I thought was THE age they were supposed to have their wish fulfilled and 2. They were cousins so the stories were linked that way. However, the h of book 3 Trusting Miss Trentham, Letty, has had her wish fulfilled at 21. “Why” is explained in this installment as the h, Eleanor or Nelly, had her wish fulfilled at 23. The women, who were originally granted a wish each, were sisters, and our heroines simply descended from a different sister each, hence the age of their wish fulfillment differs from one another. Though Charlotte and Merry were cousins, Letty wasn’t even known to them at all. Same goes for Eleanor. Therein lies the uniqueness of this series, you never know to which direction the author is going to lead you. An element of surprise is always there.

Claiming Mr. Kemp
Claiming Mister Kemp - Emily Larkin

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

Claiming Mr. Kemp is the book 4 of Emily Larkin’s Baleful Godmother series. The theme of the story is a bit different than the author’s usual style because this is a M/M romance. Her first one as far as I know, but it was well-written no doubt about it.

The Baleful Godmother is a Regency-set series based on female characters who have special “gifts” or powers. But if you want to start from the very beginning, you can with The Fey Quartet. These are a set of novellas listed as “prologue” to this series. Set in Medieval-era England, this series explains exactly how our unique heroines came to inherit their “gifts”. Books 1 and 2, Unmasking Miss Appleby and Resisting Miss Merryweather had something common in them apart from Bale Tongue, our dubious Fairy Godmother. Heroines of both of these books, Charlotte and Merry 1. Were bestowed their gifts at the age of 25, which I thought was THE age they were supposed to have their wish fulfilled and 2. They were cousins so the stories were linked that way. But that changed in book 3, Trusting Miss Trentham. Tish, the h, had her wish fulfilled at 21 instead of 25. She’s also a distant cousin to the previous heroines but they didn’t know until later in the story so the book could be technically read as a standalone.

Trusting Miss Trentham
Trusting Miss Trentham - Emily Larkin

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

Trusting Miss Trentham marked book 3 of Emily Larkin’s Baleful Godmother series and I must admit, this series is getting better with each installment! From the storyline to the characters, there’s always something new to expect!!

I found The Fey Quartet absolutely delightful, couldn’t wait to find out how the protagonists’ descendants deal with their gifts, bestowed by a Fey in exchange of a favor done to her.

Resisting Miss Merryweather
Resisting Miss Merryweather (Baleful Godmother Historical Romance Series ~ Book 2) - Emily Larkin

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

With Resisting Miss Merryweather, Emily Larkin’s Baleful Godmother series continues to its second installment. I found this one much better than book 1, which wasn’t up to my expectation where romance was concerned.

The Baleful Godmother is a Regency-set series based on female characters who have special “gifts” or powers. But if you want to start from the very beginning, you can with The Fey Quartet. These are a set of novellas listed as “prologue” to this series. Set in Medieval-era England, this series explains exactly how our unique heroines come to inherit their “gifts”. I found The Fey Quartet absolutely delightful, couldn’t wait to find out how the protagonists’ descendants deal with their gifts, bestowed by a Fey in exchange of a favor done to her. Their female descendents were to have a ‘wish’ granted on their 25th birthday; wishes that’ll grant them to have some type of special power of their own.

In book 1, Unmasking Miss Appleby, we meet Charlotte Appleby; orphaned, confirmed spinster, living on the charity of her horrible uncle. She didn’t even know about her special gift because her mother never had the chance to explain anything before she passed away. But then our very own Bale Tongue (the Fey who grants the wish) drops by suddenly. Prior to that, Charlotte was desperate to escape this horrible family she was living with but with no prospect to speak of, she couldn’t think of a way. Bale Tongue’s appearance gave her opportunity she was looking for.

Unmasking Miss Appleby
Unmasking Miss Appleby - Emily Larkin

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

Unmasking Miss Appleby is the first book in Emily Larkin’s new historical romance series, The Baleful Godmother. This book was well-written and very uniquely imaginative. A Regency-era shape-shifter, that too a woman! I personally am not very attracted to shape-shifter romances, however this had me intrigued because of its unique setting.

If you want to start from the very beginning, you can with The Fey Quartet. These are a set of novellas listed as “prologue” to this series. Set in Medieval-era England, this series explains exactly how our unique heroines come to inherit their “gifts”. I found The Fey Quartet absolutely delightful, couldn’t wait to find out how the protagonists’ descendants deal with their gifts, bestowed by a Fey in exchange of a favor done to her. Their descendants, specifically the female line, were to have a ‘wish’ on their 25th birthday; wishes that’ll grant them to have some type of special power of their own.

Charlotte Appleby was one of those descendants who had no idea what was waiting for her on her 25th birthday. Orphaned and left alone in the world, Charlotte is now an almost confirmed spinster. She lives out under the charity of her mean uncle and his equally mean family, who have stolen her inheritance the moment they took her in after her parents passed on. The aunt even called her ‘Charity’ just to humiliate her, the thieves! But Charlotte had nowhere to go, no one to turn to, so thus far, she tolerated their horrendous treatment of her.

On the eve of her 25th birthday all that was about to change...
