Yours and Mine
by A.E. Bennett
Publication date: December 21st 2021
Genres: Adult, Historical, Historical Romance, Romance


She told a lie. He confirmed it. Now they’re secretly betrothed against their families’ wishes…

Lady Octavia Dorchester is the most desired young lady in the Realm. Now that she has twenty years behind her, society has deemed her ready to marry. Although she’s not enthusiastic, she promises to act like a proper lady and look for a good husband—just like her powerful father Lord Roman Dorchester wants.

Lord Gerald Verte has been painfully shy his entire life. He’s never been comfortable in society and lives in the shadow of his older brother, the imposing Lord Tristian Verte. Despite his desires to remain indoors and away from people, he promises his older brother that he won’t shame the family name, no matter how much his anxiety threatens to overwhelm him.

After sharing a dance at a ball held in Octavia’s honor, both she and Gerald know what no one else believes—it’s love at first sight.

When their respective family members object to the match, Octavia lies about their betrothal and Gerald corroborates her story. Raising the ire of both Lords Dorchester and Verte, Octavia and Gerald are torn apart and kept from one another until tragedy strikes.

This high-heat romance with a guaranteed HEA is a prequel to Gathering of the Four: Book One of the Serrulata Saga but can be read as a standalone.




My Review


Yours And Mine is a novella in the Serrulata Saga by A. E. Bennett.  What a great way to be introduced to a new author!  This is a mix of historical and fantasy romance.  Lady Octavia and Lord Gerald are opposites in the way they act in society.  Octavia is the bell of the ball, but Gerald is paralyzed by fear of crowds.  Gerald has terrible anxiety attacks, something I am familiar with.  I love how Octavia sees Gerald for the first time and knows how to calm him.

This is a star-crossed romance, but it is also love at first sight.  Gerald and Octavia’s families did not want them to marry.  The couple overcame many obstacles.  This was a fast-paced novella packed with vivid characters, a rich, well-developed world, and passionate romance.  I am eager to read the other two books in this series.   

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
