A space Regency? Of all the fun mash ups! Added to that this lady is a scientist and she’s in charge of this space caper.
For seven years, Lady Charlotte Wyre has been hiding on Americus, the planet that broke free of Britannia’s rule. She was once the Queen’s physician and responsible for the deadly might of the Britannia empire that continues to spread through the galaxy. One world after another falls and is taken into the empire. Charlotte holds too many secrets the queen can’t have anyone knowing not to mention any other sovereign nation that has the Lady Doctor has a decided advantage. So she bides her time under the pretext that everyone thinks she’s dead, but it’s only a matter of time before a bounty hunter or the Queen’s Ravens track her her down.
In her seven year exile, Charlotte has fallen for straight arrow sheriff, Gilead Masters. Gil is all that is good and honorable. He wants to marry her, but he has no idea about the things she has done and who she really is which knowing her can get him killed. She has to break both their hearts and let him go. Then there is her shadowy assassin Lord Regret who comes to her once a year for only what she can give him. They share a bond and each other’s secrets. She can’t go with Regret either. But, while Charlotte hides, people and events are transpiring around her and she finds herself needing a plan to survive and keep the men she loves out of danger.
Lady Doctor Wyre is the first in a series entitled Jane Austen Space Opera. Do not let that series title fool you. There is no Jane Austen here. However, there is a spicy Regency space-age adventure. It’s fun that Regency manners are paired with nanobots and lasers with the gals having the upper hand. The book is light in tone and meant for sheer entertainment. The ships are all he’s, the pirate captains are she’s. Lady Wyre is a brilliant put together scientist and aristocrat who will have her cake and eat it to with Gil and Regret so different and exciting in their own ways.
The book was fun and I enjoyed it. It felt like it could have done with a longer page count to develop the story more. There is a novel’s worth of backstory given in a few short chapters. That said, I’ll give the author much credit for saying a lot with that little. But, it does seem to skim across the surface so one must be in the right mood. It has a bit of spice, a few action spots, a couple clever twists, and leaves things in a happy for now leading into the next book.
I can recommend it for those who want something light, spicy, and quick with the quirky and engaging backdrop of Regency in space.
