Miss Grimsley's Oxford Career by Carla Kelly

It's bluestocking month at the Romance Lovers Book Club. First up:


"Beautiful and brilliant Miss Ellen Grimsley considers it a scandal that she---a female---cannot attend Oxford while her dunderhead brother can. That's why she dons his robes to do his work for him. But when a handsome lord learns Ellen's secret, he decides to teach her a lesson of his own. This delightful period romance will earn top marks from readers everywhere!"

Secondly, we have:


"Lady Arabella Blydon has beauty and a brain, and she's tired of men who can see only one without the other.

When a suitor tells Arabella he's willing to overlook her appalling bluestocking tendencies on account of her looks and fortune, she decides to take a break from the Marriage Mart. During an extended stay in the country, she never expects to meet Lord John Blackwood, a wounded war hero who intrigues her like no other man.

Lord John has lived through the worst horrors of war...but nothing could have been as terrifying to his tormented heart as Lady Arabella. She is intoxicating, infuriating...and she makes him want to live again. Suddenly he's writing bad poetry and climbing trees in the pitch-dark night...just so he can dance with her as the clock strikes midnight. And even though he knows he can never be the sort of man she deserves, he can't help wanting her. But when the harsh light of day replaces the magic of midnight, can this tormented soul learn to love again?"

    Hey guys! I miss you all, but I'm going to stay home tonight. Hannah is working late (and not feeling great). I realized this gives me an unexpected evening to spend with my husband, who I've barely had any time with this holiday season! (Whose idea was it for me to get a job in retail??)

    I LOVED the Carla Kelly book, btw. So say lots of good things about it. ;-) See you in February!

    Please accept my apologies for the last-minute cancellation. I am finding myself in Greensboro at 5 and doubt I will be in Durham in time (or even slightly tardy) for tonight's meetup. I appreciate your understanding.
