As a girl, Nancy Bloom would go to Bath’s Theatre Royal, sit on the hard wooden benches and stare in awe at the actresses playing men as much as the women dressed in finery. She longed to be a part of it all and when a man promised her parents he could find a role for Nancy in the theatre, they believed him.
His lie and betrayal led to her ruin.
Francis Carlyle is a theatre manager, an ambitious man always looking for the next big thing to take the country by storm. A self-made man, Francis has finally shed the skin of his painful past and is now rich, successful and in need of a new female star. Never in a million years did he think he’d find her standing on a table in one of Bath’s bawdiest pubs.
Nancy vowed never to trust a man again. Francis will do anything to make her his star. As they engage in a battle of wits and wills, can either survive with their hearts intact?
The second in Rachel Brimble’s thrilling new Victorian saga series, Trouble for the Leading Lady will whisk you away to the riotous, thriving underbelly of Victorian Bath.
Nancy is an incredibly confident woman and I loved finding out about her past. She has a past that explains why she’s so reserved. Nancy made a promise to herself that she wouldn’t trust a man again, but Francis is determined.
If you’re a fan of Bridgerton, this is perfect for you because Nancy reminds me a lot of Daphne Bridgerton (from the show not the books because Daphne was horrible in the books). I loved reading about Victorian Bath and the society. The only con is that it took me awhile to get into it, but other than that I really enjoyed it!
