Review: Geek Girls don’t date Dukes – Gina Lamm

Leah Ramsey has always loved historical romance novels and dressing in period costumes. So when she has a chance to time travel and experience the history for herself, she jumps at itβ€”figuring it can’t be too hard to catch the eye of a duke. After all, it happens all the time in her novels.

Avery Russell, valet and prize pugilist, reluctantly helps Leah gain a position in the Duke of Granville’s household . . . as a maid.

Domestic servitude wasn’t exactly what she had in mind, but she’s determined to win her happily ever after. Even if the hero isn’t exactly who she’s expecting.
My thoughts;
I liked Leah, I mean she was me. She wanted to go back in time, find her Mr Darcy/Duke and live happily ever after. Awesome. Did that happen? Yeah…kind of.
In book 1 a geek girl went back in time through a mirror, in book 2 her friend goes back. All in the quest of true love. Sure Leah is a bit blind first. When the witch tells her she will find true love in the Duke’s house she at once assumes it’s the Duke she will fall for. Now that would have been great, but the twist is that it’s the valet, Avery she meets. He is a gentleman, all sweet and kind. He helps this crazy woman and gives her a job. The perfect guy, just, she does not see it.
What else was different is that in this book we get to see the downstairs regency era. And that is not something I see a lot, usually it’s just the glittering ton.
There is also a little sideplot that causes some drama as Avery is a boxer and is in a bit of trouble.
Conclusion
Cute time-travel romance!
