free book offer – Courtney Milan’s “The Duchess War”

Remember that I mentioned I was reading a feminist historical romance series that a lot of you would enjoy? Well, I finished it earlier this week. And this is me, Kermit-flailing about The Brothers Sinister series by Courtney Milan. I did very nearly Kermit-flail IRL on the bus when I opened up one of the later books in the series to find it dedicated to, amongst others, Rosalind Franklin.

Even better, I went to Courtney Milan’s website to pick up links for the books, and found a blogpost saying that the first full length novel in the series, The Duchess War, is free over the holiday season. (Except on Amazon at the moment, because Amazon will not let publishers set the price to free unless publishers remove the book from all other outlets.) Go and get it – there are links in that post to the various retailers where you can pick it up for free. There is a prequel novella, “The Governess Affair”, which I read first, but I don’t think you need to have read that for this one to make sense.

I will write reviews of the individual books, I promise, but for now I wanted to get the link to offer on The Duchess War out there.
ETA: And since I started writing the post, Amazon UK have price-matched, and it’s free there as well: The Duchess War (The Brothers Sinister Book Book 1)
