Keep reading for more details on this unique and adventuresome story!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: The Lady’s Triumph
Series: The Regent’s Devices #3
Author: Shelley Adina and R.E. Scott
Publisher: Moonshell Books
Release Date: September 28, 2022
Genre: Regency Steampunk
Only one thing could be worse than Napoleon’s invasion of England…
After their daring adventures behind enemy lines in France, Loveday Penhale and Celeste Blanchard cannot settle into everyday life at home. Has the Tinkering Prince forgotten them entirely? What of the prize he promised? Then, with the flourish of a royal messenger’s hand, their lives are changed. Not only have they won the prize, they are to join the Prince’s Own Engineers in London!
They must overcome many a stone in the path, however—leave all they love, find a suitable house, and worst of all, cope with a chaperone—before they can take their rightful places among the most intelligent and forward-thinking minds in the kingdom. Their goal? To develop an airborne fleet that will end Napoleon’s dreams of conquering England forever.
But the saboteur who has been plaguing their efforts for months has not yet been caught. And along with battling for acceptance among the engineers, tiptoeing closer to falling in love, and receiving invitations to Almack’s, they must discover the traitor’s identity … before the Prince Regent steps forward to command the fleet and finds himself playing right into Napoleon’s hands.
The Lady’s Triumph is the third and final book in the Regent’s Devices series by Shelley Adina and R. E. Scott. I have enjoyed the almost magical adventure of Celeste and Loveday as they use every ounce of ingenuity and imagination to try to defeat Napoleon with their original inventions, the pinnacle of which is a daring aircraft. I love, love, love the characters in this story. They are so wonderfully and artfully designed that I crave the next conversation to see their personalities on display. Loveday, of course, is a favorite, and I love the balance of Arthur in her life. Their sweet romance is full of swoony moments–especially when he stands up for her and her accomplishments.
This series has been one fantastic adventure after another. So, be prepared in this book to sit for a long while and feast on the suspense. I could hardly put the book down without knowing what would happen next. Competitive Inventors. Gentlemanly Suitors. Ballgowns and Dancing. And a touch of espionage. There’s so much to love in this story, and if you are a fan of steampunk or Regency romance, I hope you will add this book to the top of your TBR pile! But please do read them in order. You won’t be disappointed!
I was given a copy of this book by the author with no expectations of a positive review. All opinions are my own.
