Book Review with $10 Giveaway: Silk & Scholar by Cassandra Dean

My Review

Fascinating and Alluring

Silk & Scholar is a short sweet story that will truly warm your heart. A perfect tale for all romance enthusiasts looking for a nice afternoon read.
I enjoyed the chemistry between the two leads. Etta Wilding-Marsh is an introvert, who has a passion for law at a time where women lawyers are unheard of. Such is her love for the profession that together with her friend, they sought out to revolutionize the industry and start a law school for women. What she didn't count on was falling in love... especially to Lord Christopher Hiddleston, the person who has antagonized her for 10 years sending unsolicited news clippings. But unknown to her, Lord Hiddleston has always stayed true to her. How their love for each other slowly blossomed throughout the book is truly a joy to read.
This is the first book that I have read from the author, but her writing was well done. This is book 4 of a series, but there was never any moment where I felt I needed to read the first 3 books. In fact, I am looking forward to check out the first 3 books.
Overall, I very highly recommend this! Pick it up! It's worth the money.
Rating: 5 Stars

Most ladies dream of finding a husband, but Etta Wilding-Marsh dreams of the law. Establishing a law school for women is the determined firebrand’s dearest ambition and she has no time for distraction—and certainly no time for the wickedly handsome antagonist from her youth.
After years of annoying her from afar, Lord Christopher Hiddleston leaps at the chance to return to Cambridge and the fiery girl he has never forgotten. Now a successful Gothic novelist, Christopher will use his notoriety to support the school...and drive Etta wild.
A chance meeting leads to another, and then the firebrand and the antagonist find a passion of a different sort. But can a woman who dreams too much and a man who never does truly find a happily ever after?
