Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"What is a lady's formula for love? Bring together one brilliant noblewoman and an enigmatic bodyguard. Mix in a measure of danger and attraction. Heat over the warmth of humor and friendship, and the result is more than simple chemistry--it's elemental. Lady Violet Hughes is keeping secrets. First, she founded London's first social club for ladies to provide sanctuary for England's most brilliant female scientists. Second, she is using her genius on a clandestine mission for the Crown. But the biggest secret of all? Her feelings for protection officer Arthur Kneland. The most guarded of men, Kneland learned the hard way to put duty first. But the more time spent in the company of Violet and the eccentric club members, the more his best intentions go up in flames. Literally. When a shadowy threat infiltrates Violet's laboratories, endangering her life and her work, scientist and bodyguard will find all their theories put to the test--and learn that the most important discoveries are those of the heart"-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* At first glance, Athena's Retreat, a club formed by Lady Violet Hughes and her closest friends, would seem to be nothing more than a woman's response to the gentleman's social clubs of Victorian London. But the real purpose of Athena's Retreat is to serve as a haven for women like Violet to explore their scientific interests. When Violet develops a chemical formula for the Crown, she and it are targeted by a secret organization, prompting her stepson to hire Arthur Kneland to act as her bodyguard. Given his past professional history, Arthur is determined to treat his protection of Violet strictly as an assignment and nothing more, until he finds the chemical reaction developing between them impossible to ignore. With its beguiling blend of danger, desire, and deliciously dry wit, the brilliantly conceived and smartly executed A Lady's Formula for Love is an exciting debut and a first-rate launch for Everett's The Secret Scientists of London series. Fans of Evie Dunmore's A League of Extraordinary Women books or Olivia Waite's historical romances will savor this fiercely feminist, achingly romantic, and intensely sensual love story.

A Lady's Formula for Love is her first novel, inspired by her admiration for rule breakers and belief in the power of love to change the world.
