“Full of all the swoons, a dash of mystery, and punches of humor, you are going to fall head over heels with Neanderthal Seeks Duchess.” – Catherine Cowles, author of Tattered Stars

Neanderthal Seeks Duchess, an all-new charming historical romance from debut author Laney Hatcher, is LIVE in Kindle Unlimited!

Laney introduces readers to Smartypants Romance’s new and exciting Out of This World imprint with her Penny Reid universe re-imagining.

There are three things you need to know about Lady Jane Morrison:

1. She frequently finds herself the talk of the ton and for all the wrong reasons.

2. A dashingly mysterious gentleman has caught her attention and even more dangerous…she has caught his. 

3. She’s rubbish at embroidery. 

After scandalous events during the London season, Lady Jane is attracting the wrong kind of attention. Her reputation is at risk as well as all her carefully laid plans for the future. And for better or worse, a chance encounter with a mysterious lord sets forth a series of events that will change their lives forever.  

‘Neanderthal Seeks Duchess’, a Penny Reid Universe Reimagining, is a full-length historical romance, can be read as a standalone, and is book #1 in the London Ladies Embroidery series, Smartypants Romance Out of this World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

My Review...

I have to admit, historical romance was my first love, but I have been woefully neglect on reading them. So imagine my shock and delight to see one of my favorite books rewritten as a historical romance!

This tale is a remake of Penny Reid’s Neanderthal Seeks Human and Ms. Hatcher does a fabulous job!

From beautiful ballrooms, mysterious masquerade balls, and front parlors of London, readers are introduced to a group of lovely ladies. Some are noble and some not, but they are true friends better than family.

Lady Jane is the subject of this story. She is smart, awkward, and bucks against society norms for ladies. She is independent and does what she can to make a life for herself.

Oh the mysterious Q, who is he? What does he want from Lady Jane? Their chemistry is beautiful and romantic and oh the letters! I missed the hallmarks of a great historical romance and Ms. Hatcher brings everything to this story.

This story is lush, this story is swoony and this story has all the things I love and miss about historical romances!
