A Season Of Flirtation (Mills & Boon Historical) (Least Likely to Wed, Book 1) by Julia Justiss
Her lessons in flirtation…
Could work too well!
When Lady Laura Pomeroy offers to give her friend lessons on surviving the Season, she doesn’t expect her friend’s brother to join!
Banker Miles Rochdale is dubious of the aristocracy and clearly thinks Laura is shallow and silly. Frustratingly, mathematical genius Laura finds herself attracted to him, and will enjoy challenging his assumptions! But, as a Marquess’s daughter, there’s no point impressing Miles because she’ll never be allowed to marry trade…

The first book in a new series, from an author that I really like. She captures historical romance really well.
A slow burn or sweet romance (not much if any spicy moments) that will have you wishing for gowns and afternoon teas 😉
Lady Laura knows exactly how to behave in society, becoming a lady had been a minefield, if it hadn’t been for her two best friends. Laura would have failed miserably, so she wants to help anyone entering the ‘ton society.
Miles Rochdale isn’t liking the idea of a socialite educating his naive sister in the ways of flirting and ensnaring a suitor and a marriage proposal. It’s bringing back bad memories of when he was targeted and dumped by a socialite, so he has the notion of interacting with Lady Laura to judge her character.
But the more they spend time together, the more they come to realise they have so much in common…..
Miles has to accept that Laura only wants the best for his sister. And Laura has to put down her mathematical equations sometimes and interact with more than just her best friends.
I really like Laura, she was such a sensitive and sensible character. She’s also a math nerd, so that makes her socially awkward.
Miles is an overprotective big brother, which is a big plus in my book.
And Susanna (Miles’ sister) is such a cute character, she’s an innocent in a bad world and needs protecting. But the more I read of her, the more I think she’s trying to matchmake between her brother and her new friend.
And we get to meet her best friends, who support and advise her along the way. (And I’m hoping they each get a book)
So can they buck the rules and be together, or will society break this unconventional couple up? A lady can’t marry beneath her station, can she? And what happens when Laura finds out Miles is promised to someone else?
If you love sweet romances then this book is a must for you.
And I can’t wait to read the next one in this series.
