It’s release day for my new Victorian romance novel The Matrimonial Advertisement! To celebrate, I’m over at the USA Today Happy-Ever-After Blog for an interview. I’m also embarking on a virtual book tour, complete with reviews, interviews, and a special paperback giveaway. To top it all off, The Matrimonial Advertisement ebook is priced at just $2.99 for the entire week, and my last novel, The Viscount and the Vicar’s Daughter, has been reduced to $0.99 just to mark the occasion. So, without further ado, let’s get started!
Advance Praise for The Matrimonial Advertisement
“Matthews’ (The Pug Who Bit Napoleon, 2018, etc.) series opener is a guilty pleasure, brimming with beautiful people, damsels in distress, and an abundance of testosterone…It’s a well-written and engaging story that’s more than just a romance.” -Kirkus Reviews
“Matthews (The Viscount and the Vicar’s Daughter) has a knack for creating slow-building chemistry and an intriguing plot with a social history twist. For fans of Victorian romance with a gothic spin.” -Library Journal
“Gothic Victorian story-telling at its best. This is how this genre is supposed to be written!…By far one of the best books I have read—ever!” -Chicks, Rogues and Scandals
“Everything I look for in a book was incorporated in this romance…The plot was absolutely riveting from the first page to the last…I can’t say enough wonderful things about this story.” -Long and Short Reviews
“An irresistible romance with the added frisson of gothic fear…This is Miss Matthews’ best book so far and it is only the first in a new series!” -Lost in a Good Book
“The Matrimonial Advertisement is a Victorian romance in all its glory…Mimi Matthews definitely knows how to present historical facts effectively and without sounding bookish…a delightful treat for Jane Austen and historical fiction fans.” -Readers’ Favorite
