About the author

Samara Parish

7 books186 followers
Samara Parish is an award-winning author of historical romance. Her debut novel, How To Survive A Scandal, won the Romance Writers of Australia Romantic Book of the Year (RuBY) award in 2022.

How To Deceive A Duke and How To Win A Wallflower both released in 2022. You can download the series epilogue - https://samaraparish.com/rebels-serie...

Her short story, The General's Daughter, is available for free when you sign up to her newsletter - https://samaraparish.com/newsletter

She is always looking for an excuse to procrastinate, so she'd love it if you asked her a question!

As an Australian army brat in the ‘80s, Samara grew up moving from city to city—always with plenty of book boxes (to the movers’ annoyance). She reads anything that lets her escape - in particular romance, YA fantasy, and epic fantasy, although she has been known to read the occasional blockbuster suspense novel, even though she is a total sook who has a tendency to shriek at anything slightly scary.

When she's not writing or reading, she's walking her dogs or trying to tame her out of control harder. She lives in Canberra with her husband (a true romance hero) and her menagerie of pets.

This is a short and really sweet story about a young girl longing to be seen and 'chosen' by a certain young man while they are at a ball, but of course this doesn't happen even though she has planned and strategised just the way she has been trained to.
What does happen is funny and innocent and works out rather nicely for her.
I enjoyed this story and perhaps this trope could be expanded and worked into a novella length book. It certainy has great potential!
My voluntary review was written after reading a gifted copy of this book.

Miss Margaret Covington is without a doubt my favorite heroine of everything I've written so far, which is a bit crazy since this is only a short story. I feel like she's the heroines of Clueless and The Queen's Gambit combined. I'm hoping that one day I have the opportunity/time to rework this into a full length novel. In the meantime, it's a novelette that's available to my newsletter subscribers. https://samaraparish.com/newsletter

Not long enough. I could have read a whole book about these two. What it was as it is was lovely but too brief to really get emotionally entrenched enough for a 5-star rating.
