We love a good historical romance — who doesn't? The ton, the balls, the London sites. But sometimes, you want to go somewhere new, even in a book. Which is why Jennifer McQuiston's 4 1/2-star, Brighton-set Summer is for Lovers caught our attention. We had to hear more about the setting switch up. Jennifer nicely obliged!
London has always offered a colorful array of perfectly prurient peers, and this is why most historical romances are set in that decadent city. But every now and then, do you want to get the heck out of Mayfair and see a bit more of what Britain has to offer? For many Londoners in the 18th and 19th centuries (a slew of Royals included), the seaside town of Brighton provided that escape, and it serves as the setting for my latest Victorian-set romance, Summer is For Lovers.
