      Bad Romance Book Club: The Lady's Guide to Celestial Mechanics & The Wallflower Wager

      Founded by newly converted romance addict and Old Town Books owner Ally Kirkpatrick, Bad Romance Book Club is co-chaired by Danielle Ballard and Kristen Coates, the official "Romance Consultants" for the shop (and the source of Ally's ruination.) Join us for the September Bad Romance Book Club! We'll be discussing The Lady's Guide to Celestial Mechanics  by Olivia Waite and The Wallflower Wager by Tessa Dare. Ticket price for this meeting includes one (signed!) copy of each August pick for 15% off the cover price. *If you would like to avoid the online ticket processing fee, please purchase your books in the store before the club meeting. Make sure you mention Bad Romance Book Club to your bookseller to get the club discount. About The Lady's Guide to Celestial Mechanics: As Lucy Muchelney watches her ex-lover’s sham of a wedding, she wishes herself anywhere else. It isn’t until she finds a letter from the Countess of Moth, looking for someone to translate a groundbreaking French astronomy text, that she knows where to go. Showing up at the Countess’ London home, she hoped to find a challenge, not a woman who takes her breath away. About The Wallflower Wager: Wealthy and ruthless, Gabriel Duke clawed his way from the lowliest slums to the pinnacle of high society—and now he wants to get even. Loyal and passionate, Lady Penelope Campion never met a lost or wounded creature she wouldn’t take into her home and her heart. When her imposing—and attractive—new neighbor demands she clear out the rescued animals, Penny sets him a challenge. She will part with her precious charges, if he can find them loving homes. Done, Gabriel says. How hard can it be to find homes for a few kittens? And a two-legged dog. And a foul-mouthed parrot. And a goat, an otter, a hedgehog… Easier said than done, for a cold-blooded bastard who wouldn’t know a loving home from a workhouse. Soon he’s covered in cat hair, knee-deep in adorable, and bewitched by a shyly pretty spinster who defies his every attempt to resist. Now she’s set her mind and heart on saving him. Not if he ruins her first.
