Yesterday I made a list of top 5 Free Gay Romance books for MMRomance readers. Today’s list is for Free Lesbian Romance books.

Interestingly, there are fewer Lesbian books as compared to Gay romance books, and even fewer are free.

And now to the list…

Featured Review:

Caroline Singleton is a shy and reserved young woman. After the death of her beloved brother Ralph, she moves from her home in London to take up a post as a governess in Lady Wilcox’s household in Ireland, leaving behind her ailing mother. This type of post is one of the very few opportunities open to a woman in 1916.

It’s in the house of Lady Wilcox that Caroline meets the beautiful and alluring maid-servant, Grace Sheridan. Grace isn’t all she seems at face value. She’s hiding a secret. She’s caught up in Ireland’s fight for freedom.

When Caroline and Grace begin an illicit relationship, Grace trusts Caroline with her secrets. Unfortunately, circumstances beyond the control of both Caroline and Grace separates them. Will they find one another again? Will their love be strong enough to survive the condemnation and rumors that follow Caroline back to England and forwards again to Ireland? What of Grace’s involvement in the Easter Uprising? Will Grace even survive?

A wonderful historical romance set against a backdrop of the Irish Easter Uprising of 1916 during WW1.

Caroline had never expected to find the love of her life in Ireland, nor did she expect that love to be another woman, let alone a woman from a lower class than her own. Even in a conventional relationship, the class war created a big divide in those days.

It’s a very difficult time for Caroline and Grace. The emotional turmoil both women feel is so well described, I could feel their anguish. There are lots of ups and downs in their tumultuous relationship. So many, that as much as Caroline loves Grace, she does begin to have doubts and lose trust in her. As much as Caroline wants Grace, Grace appears to be pushing her away and Caroline wonders if it is all worthwhile.

I’m not well versed in Irish history, although I have heard of the Irish Easter Uprising. Gabriella West has described the events very well. As I always do when I’m interested in a particular storyline, I use Google and Google images to find out more. The historical facts appear to be accurate. The images I saw, were in fact as I’d visualized them whilst reading the story. The people mentioned in the book as leaders of the rebellion are real people. All in all, I feel Gabriella West has written a terrific and true to history account in her book. Her research is very well done. Her scenic descriptions were excellent.

The history and facts are carefully integrated and neither overshadows the other. In my honest opinion, there is a perfect balance between the facts, fiction, and romance.

Featured Review:

Juliette Barbier and Claire Cyr run the successful PR firm, Barbier & Cyr, with no difficulties but suffer from overworking in their love lives. Juliette’s partner of ten years, Nadia, has decided enough is enough and comes close to leaving for good. Claire, however, hasn’t had anything serious in some time until she meets Margot, the tight-lipped, leather-clad doctor. Steph, the intern-turned-professional scores her first big client but can she resist the temptation presented to her? All of the ladies have something to gain and something to lose- who will come out on top and who will fall down along the way?

After reading (and loving) The High-Rise Series I was so excited to learn the author was writing a new contemporary series! Luckily I am just as intrigued in this series as I was The High-Rise Series. This series takes place in France- a place where all words are horribly slaughtered in my head and I’m sure any French person would cringe at my pronunciation. From the Eiffel tower to small cafes the author takes us on many meetings and adventures in this new setting.

We are also introduced to a new cast of lovable characters: Juliette, the work-a-holic and emotionally avoidant type; Claire, the perpetually single and level-headed one; Steph, the rising businesswoman and serial heartbreaker; Margot, the bad-ass biker slash devoted doctor; and Nadia, the one on her own path of self-discovery.

Even though the author warns us of cliffhangers I can’t help but feel impatient for the next episode! Episode One was a fast-paced, intricate, and exciting start to this wonderful series. If you haven’t already one-clicked it I HIGHLY recommend you waste no more time!

“If there’s one thing politics teaches you, it’s to give as good as you get.”

Interesting and unique. Jane is very a likable character, and her love story is unusual, especially for somebody who comes across as old-fashioned and somewhat conservative at first. Her parents’ attitudes to her new love pleasantly surprised me. A fun book!

  • A Petal And A Thorn by Bella Donnis

A Petal And A Thorn by Bella Donnis

Blurb:

“I’ve always been a few dykes short of a feminist movement, but playing host to my own fictional characters after they called round for afternoon tea really was taking things to a whole new level.”

Erica is a best-selling author and self-confessed eccentric who, after a solitary life and a string of failures with women, decides she’s had enough.

However, after a failed suicide attempt, events take a strange turn when she receives a visitor – A very strange visitor, with unknown motivations.

This beautiful, intelligent and worldly lady caller couldn’t possibly be the fictional character who Erica had always placed on a pedestal, who was created out of her own image of perfection – Could she?

Erica’s life quickly transforms when she falls in love – But what happens next when she receives a second mystery caller?

Featured Review:

Very different! Let’s just say, that if you read a hundred books this year, this one will take the prize for originality. In fact, I’m not even sure where to begin, or even if I should say much about the plot. But I will say the story is filled with twists, which is very rare in this genre and that this story is less a lesbian romance and more a historical, even supernatural to some degree romance with lesbian characters.

Don’t be put off by that because this book was extremely enjoyable and seriously laugh out loud funny in places. If I could make one improvement, I’d have liked to have seen more of Tilly and Elspeth as a couple, but you can’t have everything.
