Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for 
The Earl's Lady Geologist by Alissa Baxter, 

The Earl's Lady GeologistThe Earl's Lady Geologist
The Linfield Ladies Series #1
By Alissa Baxter

Cassandra Linfield has vowed to never marry, she is dedicated to her pursuits of scientific endeavors, and collecting fossils is a most unladylike pursuit. She has other reasons to avoid marriage but this is the one she shares when asked. When her aunt insists that Cassy have a Season before she comes into her majority she finds herself off to London leaving Lyme and its fossils behind.

Adapting to the restrictions of London after the freedoms she enjoyed in Lyme are further complicated when the Earl of Rothbury, Edward, spots her partaking in a reading at the Geological Society. Little does he know just what ties Cassy has with the Society. Even more troublesome her behavior could reflect badly on his younger siblings who are Cassy's cousins.

When Cassy's illustrative talents come to light the Earl asks her to provide illustrations for his upcoming paper which is to be soon presented before the Geological Society. As they work together they come to a friendship of sorts. But when the topic of marriage comes up Cassy is adamant that she will never marry, nor be a wife of convenience. 

The Earl's Lady Geologist brings the reader into a world that is on the verge of change. The pursuit of scientific discovery, women breaking from the expected, and finding love. But nothing is ever easy and in this delightful book this is more than amply exhibited as Cassy, Edward, and her Linfield cousins try to find their place in the world. If you want an enjoyable escape from the everyday and desire clean-reading this book is just what you are looking for. 

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion. All thoughts expressed are my own.


Title: The Earl's Lady Geologist
Series: The Linfield Ladies Series
Author: Alissa Baxter
Publisher: Vinspire Publishing
Release Date: February 28, 2021
Genre: Clean Regency Romance

Cassandra Linfield is a lady fossil collector who declares she will never marry as no man will ever take her studies seriously. When circumstances force her to travel to Town for the Season, Cassy infiltrates the hallowed portals of the Geological Society from which she has been banned. She is horrified when she comes face to face with her nemesis, the infuriating Earl of Rothbury. 

Lord Rothbury is a gentleman-geologist with a turbulent romantic past. After a youthful disappointment, he vows never to fall in love again and makes the decision, instead, to seek out a convenient wife when he returns to England from his geological travels abroad. 

Brought together by their close family ties, Cassy and Rothbury collaborate on a geological paper and discover a powerful attraction. Marriage, however, is the one subject they cannot agree upon. But when Cassy’s life is threatened, the two realize that love matters more than their objections.
