A Dream Defiant by Susanna Fraser

A Dream Defiant by Susanna Fraser

November 11, 2013 Historical, Reviews 7

I picked this one up a while ago based on the unusual pairing for a regency, and then promptly forgot about it since my TBR is out of control. When I was ranting again on Twitter about how hard it is to find romance with POC characters, someone brought it… Read more »
