The Covert Captain by Jeannelle M Ferreira

The Covert Captain by Jeannelle M FerreiraPublisher Indie Author

Audio Narrated by Violet Dixon


Nathaniel Fleming, veteran of Waterloo, falls in love with his Major’s spinster sister, Harriet. But Nathaniel is not what he seems, and before the wedding, the truth will out…

Eleanor Charlotte Fleming, forgotten daughter of a minor baronet, stakes her life on a deception and makes her name—if not her fortune—on the battlefield.

Her war at an end, she returns to England as Captain Nathaniel Fleming and wants nothing more than peace, quiet, and the company of horses. Instead, Captain Fleming meets Harriet. Harriet has averted the calamity of matrimony for a decade, cares little for the cut of her gowns, and is really rather clever. Falling in love is not a turn of the cards either of them expected.

Harriet accepts Captain Fleming, but will she accept Eleanor? Along the way, there are ballrooms, stillrooms, mollyhouses, society intrigue, and sundering circumstance.

That Could Be Enough by Alyssa Cole

That Could Be Enough by Alyssa ColePublisher Audible

Audio Narrated by Karen Chilton


Mercy Alston knows the best thing to do with pesky feelings like “love” and “hope”: avoid them at all costs. Serving as a maid to Eliza Hamilton, and an assistant in the woman’s stubborn desire to preserve her late husband’s legacy, has driven that point home for Mercy – as did her own previous heartbreaks.  

When Andromeda Stiel shows up at Hamilton Grange for an interview in her grandfather’s stead, Mercy’s resolution to live a quiet, pain-free life is tested by the beautiful, flirtatious, and entirely overwhelming dressmaker.  

Andromeda has staid Mercy reconsidering her worldview, but neither is prepared for love – or for what happens when it’s not enough.  

This is an angsty but fluffy F/F novella with a happy ending for both of our intrepid heroines.

Over the years she became frustrated with purchasing mediocre lesbian fiction feeling like it was a waste of her money and time. And so she decided to share only the best books and movies with lesbians who are looking for only the best. And so, The Lesbian Review was born
