"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The main characters are so real and believable.
The side characters add so much life and balance to the story.
And the romance, while not epic 'Gone with the Wind' romance, is oh so satisfying. Really hard to imagine how people ever managed to fall in love in those days.
I closed my kindle with a smile on my face and with the hopes that the author was planning to give me more.
I highly recommend you take this journey.
There were a couple of sex scenes but they fit in with the story. Hoping this author will write another regency period book.
I like that Eleanor isn't a mouse, that she has opinion and takes liberties with regency rules!
Miles is hot, kind and sweet. I want him!!
This is a great read, a great plot and very well written.
I highly recommend it.
I loved that Eleanor is intelligent and self-possessed, and very capable of running her own life and her father's estate, and I enjoyed how Miles made her rethink her plans. I thought Miles was a little snobby at first and I wasn't sure I was going to like him, but he still managed to be sympathetic. By the end, I loved him every bit as much as Eleanor for his sense of humor and caring nature, and I especially loved how determined he was to win Eleanor over. I enjoyed watching their relationship develop as they came to learn about and care for each other--with a few hiccups along the way to keep things interesting. Miles and Eleanor's families both provided interesting secondary characters, and I was intrigued by both of Miles's brothers, whose stories I hope to be reading soon!
All in all, an engaging, highly enjoyable read and I'll be looking for more books from this author. 4.5 stars
Desperation drives Eleanor to come up with a plan so she can acquire a husband, in turn, a male heir to make sure that Rutledge legacy remains within the family. Miles Everleigh, third son to the deceased Duke of Chelsony, made that list because despite his good looks, everyone knew he had an abysmal financial condition, no thanks to his eldest brother the new Duke. As noted on the blurb, Miles had been 'entertaining' widows and such to pay off debts and rents but that's not how he envisioned his life to be. He needed a rescue, and Eleanor offered him one. He took it but he wasn't ungrateful for her help.
After their wedding, Miles and Eleanor didn't have a smooth sailing but gradually, two seemingly unsuitable individual begin falling for one another. Though Eleanor was older than Miles, they bonded over their shared love of horses. They both found something to cherish in one-another and didn't hesitate showing off their affection.
Though I had thought this maybe a story with a darker tone, "A Husband for Hire" is no such thing. The story is light with a straightforward romance between a married couple. So whether you're a fan of light historical romances or older woman-younger man and/or married couple theme, this story has something to offer to everyone. Despite having a slow start, I enjoyed it a lot. So much so, I'm eagerly looking forward to book 2.
