I decided to cut my teeth on a short story by a new reader to me, Courtney Milan. Miss Milan has many books out and after reading this fun little romp, she's now graced my TBR list on goodreads. Please follow me and let's share shelves!

FEBRUARY  BOUDOIR  READ

2/23  TO  2/28

A Right Honorable Gentleman     by:     Courtney Milan

BLURB:

Miss Catherine Hooks is one of the best governesses in all of England; her employer, the Right Honorable Edward Glennon, is one of the busiest men. The fact that they’ve fallen in love is immaterial. Honorable people in their situation do not mention such things. But Edward’s son is on the verge of leaving for school, and when Cat asks for the only thing she can demand under the circumstances—a reference and help finding a new position—she discovers that even a right honorable gentleman has his limits…

Note: A Right Honorable Gentleman is a short story of about 7,000 words, and it was previously published in the anthologyPremiere.

Lingerie:  Adore Me                                  Regency Phrase: Toad-eaten = Flattered and made up to

Dark Navy Blue and fits like a comfortable slip. In my world you can't go wrong with polka dots and this easy flowing slip is graced with them. Legs tucked under and a nice fire is called for with this week's lingerie pick and Courtney Milan's short story is just the thing. Adorning the bodice and the edge of the skirting is a measure of delightful lace. It's a wonderful cross between lingerie and lounge wear.
