The Perilous Life of Jade Yeo is a 23,000-word self-published historical romance novella. It is told in the eponymous heroine’s diary entries and is basically Bloomsbury Group fanfic. It has no fantastical content at all, save insofar as it is a happy fluffy story about a single non-white woman at large in 1920s London.
For struggling writer Jade Yeo, the Roaring Twenties are coming in with more of a purr — until she pillories London’s best-known author in a scathing review. Sebastian Hardie is tall, dark and handsome, and more intrigued than annoyed. But if Jade succumbs to temptation, she risks losing her hard-won freedom — and her best chance for love.
Dear Author said it was “effervescent and sparkling like Champagne; it goes down easy, feels like something special, and tastes complex and subtle“.
