Victoria-Margaret is the crown princess of the empire, a direct descendent of Victoria I, the queen who changed the course of history. The imperial tradition of genetically arranged matchmaking will soon guide Margaret into a politically advantageous marriage. But before she does her duty, she'll have one summer of freedom and privacy in a far corner of empire. Posing as a commoner in Toronto, she meets Helena Marcus, daughter of one of the empire's greatest placement geneticists, and August Callaghan, the heir to a powerful shipping firm currently besieged by American pirates. In a summer of high-society debutante balls, politically charged tea parties, and romantic country dances, Margaret, Helena, and August discover they share an extraordinary bond and maybe a one-in-a-million chance to have what they want and to change the world in the process.
Set in a near-future world where the British Empire never fell and the United States never rose, That Inevitable Victorian Thing is a surprising, romantic, and thought-provoking story of love, duty, and the small moments that can change people and the world.
Welcome friends, to my stop on the blog tour for the newly released “That Inevitable Victorian Thing” by E.K. Johnston. When I read the description for this book I was immediately intrigued as I’ve always been fascinated by Queen Victoria. So to have an alternate history story featuring her descendant, I knew I needed it in my life. I am a huge nerd when it comes to royalty and my fangirl mode goes on serious overdrive when you throw royal marriages in the mix. So, it’s only natural that I would want to feature some of my very favorite royal couples as part of this blog tour. I contained myself and have only listed five couples I adore but, trust me, there are PLENTY more.
