A change in course can be refreshing...when it's done together. 1871 After two disastrous marriages, beauty columnist Amalia Truitt's life is finally her own--well, it will be if she can get herself back to Delaware and demand access to her share of the Truitt family fortune. After all, the charity she's organized for women who can't afford their own divorces won't fund itself. However, not everyone wants her to reach her destination. When her family learns she's been receiving anonymous death threats, a solo journey is out of the question. Enter David Zisskind, the ragtag-peddler-turned-soldier whose heart Amalia broke years ago. He's a Pinkerton now, and the promotion he craves depends on protecting his long-lost love on the unexpectedly treacherous journey across Pennsylvania. That their physical connection has endured the test of time (and then some) is problematic, to say the least. In very close quarters, with danger lurking around every curve, with each kiss and illicit touch, the wrongs of the past are righted. But David can't weather another rejection, especially with his career in jeopardy. And Amalia can't possibly take a lover, never mind another husband...not with so much depending on her repaired reputation. Not when she's hurt David--her David--so badly before. Publisher's Note: Dalliances & Devotion contains content that some readers may find challenging, including PTSD, depression, war, sibling death and antisemitism. And don't miss the first book in Felicia Grossman's The Truitts series, Appetites & Vices, available now! One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you're looking for with an HEA/HFN. It's a promise! This book is approximately 85,000 words… (mere)

A second-chance romance between a twice-divorced beauty & style influencer and a former Marxist-turned-soldier-turned-spy. She's receiving death threats and he has been hired by her brother to protect her . . . AND there is a scene where he helps draw her corset laces and she keeps demanding he go harder. Scandalizing a Pinkerton with red knickers or waxing poetic about labor unions - a smart and funny read!

The Jewishness of this book makes my heart kvell!

CW's: PTSD, death of family member (flash backs), wartime flashbacks, racism (unequal rights), antisemitism (fear of), stabbing, gun shot wound, bleeding from wounds, attempted murder, explicit sex ( )

This book had a way of toying with my emotions, laughing, gasping in fear, fanning from steam. It has it all!

I enjoyed the characters who all had some depth, interesting backstories, and interconnectedness. I think the best part though was the glimpse into historical time for Jews that isn't normally captured in a novel. Amalia and David come from different worlds and their Judaism was very different each one a snapshot.

Of course revisiting Ursula and Jay was so satisfying. Seeing them surrounded by family, children, grandchildren, all the promises their first novel made, delivered. ( )
