RT’s Morgan and Whitney are back to discuss a digital historical romance as we continue our month of e-Book Dishes. This week it’s a look at The White Swan Affair by Elyse Mady. When Hester’s beloved brother disappears, she turns to landlord Thomas Ramsey for help. Hester has loved this swashbuckling man from afar, and he is equally entranced by her. But with Hester’s brother in prison (and her scandalous past) standing in the way of a happily ever after, does this couple have any hope for a future together?
Whitney: This story is a historical romance lover’s dream. With an uncanny accuracy for both setting and language, The White Swan Affair sweeps the reader back in time to 1810 London.
Morgan: The author goes to great lengths to craft an authentic tale. And because I’m not first and foremost a historical romance reader, the story’s language — all the “whilsts” and such — threw me a little, but it wasn’t long before I fell headlong into the story.
Whitney: I can say without a doubt that this e-book has the most compelling plot I have read in a very long time.
