Historical Reverse Harems

The requested theme was Regency Reverse Harems. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a wide variety of RH in this specific time period, so I expanded it to Historical Reverse Harems. I have added a bonus book this week since I’m not exactly spot on.

Hopefully, you can all find a gem below.

Beautiful Things: A Regency Reverse Harem Romance (Second Sons Book 1) by Emily Rath
Amazon Description

Beautiful Things is a reverse harem romance set in the Regency era. Perfect for fans of Bridgerton who don’t want to settle for just one handsome suitor. At twenty-two, Rosalie Harrow is unmarried and near destitute. She has two choices: snag a wealthy gentleman, or take work as a governess. Neither option appeals to headstrong Rosalie, who sees both futures as a kind of cage. When Rosalie receives an invitation to Alcott Hall, she believes she’s there to meet the Dowager Duchess of Norland, the mysterious childhood friend of her late mother. Instead, Rosalie is thrust in the middle of a house party of eligible high society ladies all desperate to win the hand of the new, conveniently single duke. Hilarity ensues as Rosalie dodges the attentions of the officious duke, and weathers the censure of the other guests, all while trying to unravel the mystery of her invitation. And then there’s the gentlemen… The more Rosalie tries to avoid the high society husband hunt, the more she finds herself charmed by three very different men. There’s Lord James, the duke’s younger brother, who is the secret duke in all but name. Lieutenant Renley, recently returned from the West Indies, and begrudgingly looking for a wife of his own. And the tempestuous Mr. Burke, who irks Rosalie to no end. The clock ticks down the days to the Michaelmas ball, when the duke is set to announce his bride. Marriage is a trap and Rosalie will not be easily snared…but that doesn’t mean she can’t enjoy the chase while it lasts. BEAUTIFUL THINGS is a steamy, slow burn reverse harem romance set in the Regency era. The female main character has multiple suitors and she won't settle for just one in the end. All the main characters are in their twenties. This is book one of two.

A Reverse Harem Risqué Romance

And now, dear Diary, I shall confess something quite dreadfully shocking. For the first time in my life, I felt a gentleman’s hands assisting me in removing my clothing.
Yes, I shall surely be condemned to an eternity of agony for such a transgression, but I had no one else to ask. Giles brought hot water to my chamber and found me struggling with the tapes of my gown. He was all that was proper and polite, and had me unlaced in a trice, which was very helpful.
My blushes must have added their own warmth to the room, but given his kindness and his attentions to me, I was not unduly overset.

Lady Adalyn Wilkerson’s Diary, Wolfbridge Manor, January 1817

A birthday, a marriage and a funeral—twenty-year-old Adalyn has experienced them all in the space of a fortnight. The widowed Lady Wilkerson is lost, homeless and helpless as she stands next to her late husband’s grave, until an elegant gentleman introduces himself as her new butler, takes her to Wolfbridge Manor—and her life changes forever.

She finds herself mistress of a tidy estate, run by the most amazing men she’s ever set eyes on. Their attentions teach her about loyalty, affection, caring and devotion, and stimulate the dawning of her sensuality.

Unfortunately, not even her skilled and loving gentlemen can keep trouble from the door, and Adalyn is going to need all the courage she possesses to protect Wolfbridge and its residents. But protect them she will, if it takes every ounce of her strength. Others might have hesitated, but the men of Wolfbridge have taught her well – she isn’t just a mere cypher in a bonnet, she is their Lady Adalyn.

This is the first novel in The Saga of Wolfbridge Manor. The story will continue in Book 2.

THEIR MAIL-ORDER BRIDE: A HISTORICAL REVERSE HAREM ROMANCE BY ELLE BREEZE
Their Mail-Order Bride: A Historical Reverse Harem Romance by Elle Breeze
Amazon Description

Katherine: After a horrible first marriage that left her widowed and homeless, she decided to answer an ad to be a mail-order bride; she picked the only one that seemed like a genuine person. Much to her surprise, hours after her wedding to Jesse Spencer, he tells her that she's to be the wife of not only him, but four other men. She's doubtful that they can make it work, and she doubts that she can keep them all satisfied even more. When it turns out the satisfaction is all about her, and she gets a taste of what her life could be like, Katherine decides to give it a try--not promising anything, of course. Jesse: He's called the other men family for over half his life. When they all finally agreed to try this out, it was his name they used, and his body that married her in front of the Reverend. That meant it fell on him to tell her that he wants her to love the others, just as much, and as often, as she loves him. He's caring and thoughtful, and Katherine knows it wouldn't be hard to fall entirely in love with him. Calvin: Calvin knew that he wanted Katherine as soon as he saw her picture in the letter months beforehand. Seeing her walk down, and marry a man he considered a brother was the most nerve-wracking day of his life. He was happy for Jesse but afraid to be hopeful that she'd agree to their unique plan. He's the first one to spend time with her after Jesse, and he plans to do all that he can to convince her it's a good idea. He's the biggest and strongest of them all, he has a passion that threatens to set her on fire, and she wonders if she might enjoy dying in flames. Ellis: He's the youngest of the group, and quiet. He's reserved in the other aspects of his life, so it makes sense that he's the one to begin introducing Katherine to things she's never experienced. She feels free and relaxed with him, his silence never judging and always understanding. He's the man she would have dreamed of when she was younger, and before her first marriage had broken her faith in happy endings. Ben and Matthew: They're twins. Identical to almost every outside person, but she quickly can tell the difference. Their excitement for life is contagious, and they dare her to try new things and throw caution to the wind. When they're with her, the three of them find a perfect harmony that she hadn't expected, and its what makes her decide to try out this crazy plan. Their Mail-Order Bride is a 42,000-word novella. It contains mature, adult, themes. If such material offends you, please do not buy the book. This is a MFMMMM story-line, and it's all about her. There is no cheating but there is a wonderful happily-ever-after in store for these six.
