Reviews

"Lowell's finely wrought characters don't have it easy when it comes to navigating restrictive Victorian society, but even their most outrageous actions ring true. Readers will be swept away by this entrancing, intelligent romance."
-Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"Compelling and exquisitely crafted, The Runaway Duchess is a beautiful romance that enchants from the very first page. Lowell's wit, sumptuous imagery, and vivid, endearing characters combine to make this a swooningly gorgeous read. Highly recommended."

Praise for The Duke Undone

"I loved The Duke Undone and so will my readers!"
-Eloisa James, New York Times bestselling author of My Last Duchess

"Lushly dark, riddled with secrets, and seductive....Lowell's writing oozes a sense of place. [The] sense of authenticity never falters, making this the most Victorian of romance novels."
-Entertainment Weekly

"A beautiful blend of seductive suspense and heart-tugging romance that I could not put down. Romance fans should make room for this author on their keeper shelves!"
-Lyssa Kay Adams, National bestselling author of Crazy, Stupid Bromance

"Joanna Lowell's skillful storytelling and dazzling characters create one of the most exciting new voices in historical romance today."
-Julia London, New York Times bestselling author of A Princess by Christmas

"A charming romance with an atypical heroine and a to-die-for (and hot!) hero in this unique tale of a duke and a struggling artist in Victorian London."
-Jennifer Ashley, New York Times bestselling author of The Stolen Mackenzie Bride

"I really loved this book-in fact, I couldn't put it down. It's a fabulous feast of a story that plunges you into the Victorian era with all its levels and complications - into the art world and among aristocrats and slum-dwellers. There's tension, adventure, derring-do, a fight against corruption on several levels, a rich cast of characters and a hero and heroine to admire and cheer for. All in all, a rich and heartwarming historical romance. Highly recommended."
-Anne Gracie, National bestselling author of Marry in Scarlet

"
Lowell conjures vivid characters in this intelligent Victorian romance... provides plenty of atmospheric intrigue, deepened by Lowell's willingness to engage with ideas of gender, class, and empire, and by the complexity of the characters."
-Publishers Weekly

"It's a lush, sensual and outstanding romance that makes the heart ache in the very best way."
-BookPage (Starred Review)

"Impeccably researched, Lowell's latest emphasizes justice. This love story tackles weighty issues but remains suspenseful and spellbinding."
-Library Journal (Starred Review)

"Lowell's prose is vivid and evocative, and issues such as class inequity, women's rights, and alcohol addiction complement the intense on-page evolution of the love story...those looking for a happy-ever-after for complex and passionate characters will be very satisfied here. A new voice in historical romance that will keep readers riveted."
-Kirkus
