What We're Reading

My Lady's Choosing: An Interactive Romance
Kitty Curran and Larissa Zageris

This book is a fun romp through Regency romance in the format of the Choose Your Own Adventure books readers might remember from their childhood. You, the reader, are a penniless woman with no current romantic prospects. Starting on page one, you will meet your best friend and three eligible bachelors who are reminiscent of swoonworthy literary characters Mr. Darcy, Jamie Fraser and Mr. Rochester.
