READ AND REVIEW
THE ROGUE DEBUTANTE (BEAU MONDE CHRONICLES # 1) BY MAGGIE DALLEN
Release Date: January 22, 2016
A rebellion is brewing and everyone must pick a side....even pirates and debutantes.
Delia Langley has been a prisoner all her life - a prisoner to high society and its conventions. A prisoner to her wealthy father's overprotective measures. A prisoner to a fiance-to-be in an arrangement made by her father to have a royal heir. In fact, the only time in her life that Delia ever felt free was when she was captured by the much-feared pirate Blackheart and his crew, and held for months while her father negotiated her ransom.
Now nineteen, Delia is ready to leave another prison, the manmade "city in the sky," Beau Monde, where she's been tucked away, high above London all these many years. Her marriage to Lord Thaddeus Templeton will be announced after her debutante ball, and the wheels will be set in motion for Delia to take her place as a proper society lady. Except she has other plans. Masquerading as Madame X, a French pirate, Delia has arranged to purchase her own pirate airship from the mysterious "Professor." But her well-laid plan for escape has no room for distractions. Especially not Nicholas Crawley, the dashing, bachelor son of the family that's hosting Delia during her London visit. He's ruggedly handsome - and he's impossible. She doesn't expect to fall for him, but there's no denying the electricity that surges between them. A future with him would ruin everything, but her attraction to him is only one of many surprises poised to thwart her pirating plans in this charming steampunk tale.
REVIEW: THE ROGUE DEBUTANTE (BEAU MONDE CHRONICLES # 1) BY MAGGIE DALLEN
The Rogue Debutante by Maggie Dallen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
How would I describe The Rogue Debutante? An unorthodox escapade that is hard to follow but worth taking a chance on. I received an ARC of Maggie Dallen's novel in exchange for an honest review. Delia, the title character after years of captivity, neglect and taking orders has decided to become her own rescuer. Her personality was a great match for this fantastical story. She has made a choice to follow her heart, become her own woman and do so her way.
