I am developing a great love for novels by Regina Jennings. The perfect blend of history and humor kept me up in to the wee hours of the morning and when I flipped to the last page it was a feeling akin to devastation that washed over me. In a time when I’ll take all the laughs I can get this was a very appropriate novel. Jennings take on historical novels is really quite unique and while it has a good amount of history involved it doesn’t go over the top with history lessons. Do I recommend At Love’s Bidding? Heck, yeah I do. I’d reread the entire book if I had the spare time to do so.
