A Brilliant exciting pair of stories. However, I wish American authors would try to do better research into British history, especially the customs, social mores and particularly the mind set of that time.
Women had no rights whatsoever . They were compelled to absolute obedience. In the upper classes they were often we'd at 12yrs. Mainly for money,lands or alliances. Love NEVER entered the equation. They were frequently sent to their betrothed,s home to live until marriage after their first Monthly.
Humming birds did not exist in UK only in USA.
Pumpkins also were from USA so not known, neither were duvets or playmakers.
