Series Report: Book of Love (1-5) by Meara Platt

Posted August 7, 2020 by Angie in Book Reviews / 0 Comments

First, I love these covers. They’re so colorful and pretty. There are three more books, which came out this year, but I haven’t read those yet. Which is probably a good thing, because this is not a series I’d recommend binging. I read these five back to back and I think I would have enjoyed them more if I had spread them out. They’re just TOO similar, so it was almost like reading the same book five times. It was a good book, but it didn’t need to be repeated that many times so close together.

This series is all about a book that explains how men and women fall in love. It’s very scientific. Each woman in this friend/family group read it and pass it around so they can each find their true love. Of course, each of them need to test the information out so they choose a man that they trust, not intending to actually fall in love with him. We all know how that goes. Especially when you read it five times in a row.

It’s a very cute series and I do recommend, but just one book at a time.

When Lady Olivia Gosling finds The Book of Love in a musty bookshop, she is most eager to try out its love “recipes” on someone safe.

Did she say safe?

Well, Beast isn’t really safe, but with her odious guardian about to marry her off to one of his unsavory friends, Olivia needs her childhood friend to fall in love with her... fast. If Beast can love her, then any man she chooses will surely do the same.

Alexander Beastling, Duke of Hartford, is known as Beast among the ton. He is big and muscled, and there is a dark aura of mystery about him that he makes no effort to dispel. Now that he’s returned from battle, he’s appalled to learn of the marriage plans Lady Olivia’s loathsome guardian has for her. Beast has decided that he will help her find a proper husband, even if it means putting up with her ridiculous experiments taken out of a book she refers to as The Book of Love. Olivia calls them magical recipes for love.

Is it possible they actually work? Because suddenly, Beast can’t seem to get Olivia out of his mind... or his heart.

Poppy Farthingale has made a pact with her two best friends to use The Book of Love to find true love. How else will Nathaniel Sherbourne, Earl of Welles, ever notice her? With a small dowry and no prominent lineage, Nathaniel will never consider her a suitable wife, especially when her competition is a beautiful duke’s daughter who has already been declared an Incomparable. Poppy has four days to win his heart, but with time running out and her rival about to attend a weekend party at Nathaniel’s country home, is all hope lost?

Nathaniel Sherbourne, Earl of Welles, is a man whose heart has been bruised by the ravages of war. He is in no rush to marry, for he’s a wealthy and titled bachelor with debutantes aplenty eager to gain his notice. In any event, he has a blackmail scheme to unravel before he can turn his mind to more romantic ventures. But his sister’s shy friend, Poppy Farthingale, is suddenly capturing his attention. She’s toting around The Book of Love, and he’s promised to help her find a suitable match.

But is it possible that he, in fact, is the right man for Poppy?

Will the mysterious Book of Love lead Penelope to her true love?

Lady Penelope Sherbourne is not—absolutely not—going to fall in love with Thaddius MacLauren, Laird of Caithness, even if he is a big, handsome Scottish brute and ridiculously protective of her. But now that the Book of Love has fallen into her hands, Thad is the only one she trusts to test out the sensations she must explore in order to find the perfect husband. She wants a mild-mannered English earl, one who lives near her family, and who will not make her heart leap or her bones melt as Thad does every time he looks at her.

Thaddius MacLauren intends to claim a kiss from Lady Penelope Sherbourne and nothing more. No, not a thing more, even though he’s loved the sharp-tongued, vexing lass forever. She’s also been kinder to him than anyone else alive, and for a boy who never felt loved by his family, Penelope’s kindness has come to mean everything to him. How can he ever tell her how he feels? She’s the daughter of a powerful earl and all he can offer her is a tumble-down holding at the northern tip of Scotland. It will take a miracle to win her heart.

Is it possible the Book of Love holds the magic to bring it about?

Welcome to more Regency fun and frolic in the romantic, bestselling Book of Love series. Now Violet Farthingale must put The Book of Love to the test to capture Romulus Brayden’s heart.

What makes a man fall in love? Violet Farthingale is desperate to know, because she has just been caught in Captain Romulus Brayden’s home with her gown unlaced and his hands too far up her legs to explain away. It was an innocent misunderstanding, of course. She was attacked by bees, and he came to her rescue. No one seems to care that nothing happened. She is now forced to marry this handsome stranger. Everyone knows Farthingales only marry for love, so how does she make this big and brawny Royal Navy captain fall in love with her? And how will she fall in love with him in under a week?

Romulus Brayden has always loved the sea, and now it seems he’ll have to learn to love Violet Farthingale, because she is going to be his wife. Honor demands it. After all, he did have his hands on her luscious body, and while her behavior was innocent, his certainly was not. Lusting for Violet is not the same as wanting her as his wife, but there is no way out of this scrape without ruining her, and this he will not do. She is insisting on their reading The Book of Love together. Well, why not? Braydens marry for love.

Can this book lead them to love before he is recalled to duty hunting down pirates along the Cornwall coast?
