Anne Meredith has been sent to a mysterious court to marry a count. She doesn’t know much about him or the place where she’s going. The moment she sets foot into her betrothed’s mansion, she will be in for a shock of a lifetime. Axel is the count’s nephew and he’s in charge of training the future wife of the court.

Twice the Novice was an amazing story that was really well written.
Axel is extremely dominant but you see him falling in love with Anne. The chemistry between the two main characters is believable and lovely to read. I love possessive men and I found Axel was right up my street. He was perfectly written and Twice the Novice is another brilliant story from the talented Debra Glass.
Verdict: A steamy historical romance that will certainly warm you up whatever the time of day you read.
