Synopsis:

Deck the halls with mistletoe! 

For years, shy wallflower Elspeth Douglas has pined for the attentions of dashing Brody Girvan, Laird of Invermackie. But the rakish Highlander doesn’t even know she’s alive. This Christmas, she realizes that she’ll never be happy until she stops loving her brother’s handsome friend. Except it turns out that Brody isn’t singing from the same Christmas carol sheet—Elspeth decides she’s not interested in him anymore, just as he decides he’s very interested indeed. With interfering friends and a crate of imported mistletoe thrown into the mix, the stage is set for a house party rife with secrets, clandestine kisses, misunderstandings, heartache, scandal, and love triumphant.

Down with love!

Ever since she was fifteen, shy wallflower Elspeth Douglas has pined in vain for the attentions of dashing Brody Girvan, Laird of Invermackie. But the rakish Highlander doesn’t even know she’s alive. Now she’s twenty, she realizes that she’ll never be happy until she stops loving her brother’s handsome friend. When family and friends gather at Achnasheen Castle for Christmas, she intends to show the world that’s she’s all grown up, and grown out of silly crushes on gorgeous Scotsmen. So take that, my gallant laddie! 

Girls just want to have fun…

Except it turns out that Brody isn’t singing from the same Christmas carol sheet. Elspeth decides she’s not interested in him anymore, just as he decides he’s very interested indeed. In fact, now he looks more closely, his friend Hamish’s sister is pretty and funny and forthright – and just the lassie to share his Highland estate. Convincing his little wren of his romantic intentions is difficult enough, even before she undergoes a makeover and becomes the belle of Achnasheen. For once in his life, dissolute Brody is burdened with honorable intentions, while the lady he pursues is set on flirtation with no strings attached.

Deck the halls with mistletoe!

With interfering friends and a crate of imported mistletoe thrown into the mix, the stage is set for a house party rife with secrets, clandestine kisses, misunderstandings, heartache, scandal, and love triumphant.

My Thoughts:

Since she was fifteen, shy wallflower Elspeth Douglas has pined in vain for the attentions of dashing Brody Girvan,her brother’s handsome friend. Now she decides she isn’t interested in her brother’s friend anymore.

As Brody looks more closely, his friend Hamish’s sister is pretty and funny and forthright – and just the lassie to share his Highland estate.
Convincing Elspeth of his romantic intentions is hard enough, but then Elspeth undergoes a makeover that turns her into the Belle of the ball.

Will love triumph over a house full of interfering friends, misunderstandings and kisses under the mistletoe?

I loved this delightfully funny Christmas novella.
Full of misunderstood best intentions with a crowd that interferes at every turn these star crossed lovers may never get together.

I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization. This novella is full of stolen kisses and gets 3 of 5 flames for intimacy.

Given that this is book #2 of this series and that I haven’t read book #1 I find no reason that you can’t enjoy each one as a standalone.
I have read other books by Anna Campbell and always enjoy what she creates.

match in mistletoeA mistletoe wish…

All her life, Serena Talbot has been in love with the handsome boy next door, Sir Paul Garside. She always eagerly looks forward to Paul’s visit to her family over the Festive Season, even if he usually brings along his dark, sardonic friend Lord Hallam. This year, Serena is determined that Paul’s kiss under the mistletoe will lead to a proposal. Even if she has to enlist every ounce of Christmas magic she can get her hands on to make that happen. 

But the mistletoe gets it wrong! 

When Serena slips a sprig of mistletoe from the village kissing bough under her pillow, it’s not Paul who turns up in her dreams as the man she’s going to marry, but brooding, intense, annoying Giles Farraday, Marquess of Hallam. Still more annoying, once everyone arrives for the annual Christmas house party, she can’t stop watching Giles, and thinking about Giles. And kissing Giles, whether there’s mistletoe about or not. Now Paul wants to marry her, and Giles wants to seduce her–and Serena has a bone to pick with the old wives who came up with all this superstitious nonsense in the first place. 

A Christmas of confusion lies ahead! Will mistletoe magic lead the way to a happy ending?

Hawke is the son of the well-known and respected laird, Storm MacKeefe. When the King’s Chronicler arrives at the castle to record the heroic acts of the MacKeefe Clan, Hawke decides it is time to be noticed and to step out of his father’s shadow.But getting mentioned in the Highland Chronicles isn’t an easy task. Not when he and his friends have to live up to the legends of their parents. Will anyone ever be able to outshine Storm and the Madmen MacKeefe?When a hunting trip turns into a deadly battle against their rival clan, the MacNabs, Hawke is left for dead and his grandfather is abducted. Wounded, and in one final attempt to even the score, Hawke captures MacNab’s daughter when she tries to strip him of his belongings on the battlefield.

Phoebe MacNab is a healer, traveling with her father’s men through enemy territory, while looking for precious herbs. But when she is taken captive by the handsome Hawke MacKeefe, she is forced to make a decision that can change her life forever.

Synopsis:

1923508896Corbett Blake is a child who wants to be a knight and follow in his father’s footsteps, but because he is gifted, he is sent to be a sorcerer’s apprentice instead.
This short story of approximately 6,500 words is the prequel of the four-book Legacy of the Blade series and sets the scenes for the books to follow. Excerpts from each book in the series are included.

The full-length novels in the series are Lord of the Blade, Lady Renegade, Lord of Illusion, Lady of the Mist.


My Thoughts:

I would have liked a little more meat to this story. We know that Corbett doesn’t want to be the sorcerer’s apprentice and would much rather be a knight.

We find he has lost his entire family in a series of random acts of tragedy, evil and war. Reading this makes you want to know the source of his pain so it makes book one of the series a must read.

I received a complimentary copy of this short story to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

I gave this short read 3.25 of 5.0 stars. It just needed a bit more development in this reader’s opinion.

Scandalous Miss Brightwells Book 4

by Beverley Oakley

Friends at seven, lovers at seventeen, Katherine and Jack were meant to be together.

But when a tragic mistake results in marriage to the wrong man for Katherine, a heartbroken Jack heads to foreign lands to make his fortune.

Now Jack is returning and Katherine is a widow, eagerly awaiting the only man she’s ever loved.

Experience has taught her to value even more his qualities of honour and bravery, while his humour and playfulness are ever on her mind, a counterpoint to her years of living with a humourless husband.

But to Katherine’s dismay, she learns that Jack is returning with his betrothed, a woman he agreed to marry abroad.

Katherine knows Jack can’t possibly love this woman as he’d loved her. She also knows she has the power to win him back. But Jack has equally compelling reasons for going forward with the betrothal he contracted in the West Indies.

Will love or honour prevail?

This is Book 4 of the Scandalous Miss Brightwells series though it can be read as a standalone.

What readers are saying:

“This book kept me hanging until the very last page… but the agony of not knowing the twists and turns until they were on me made it the most splendid adventure.”

“Great plot and characters which will keep you turning pages. Hope there are more to come.”

If you love your romance sprinkled with scandal, sizzle and with a wicked twist at the end, you’ll love The Accidental Elopement.

Two nobly born debutantes and their illegitimate sisters -a governess and an actress -compete for love while bringing to justice a handsome, dangerous traitor in these passionate, intrigue-filled Regency romances.

51uFbaJfzvL__SY346_HER GILDED PRISON ~She was determined to secure the succession, he was in it for the pleasure. Falling in love was not part of the arrangement.

When dashing twenty-five-year-old Stephen Cranbourne arrives at the estate he will one day inherit, it’s expected he will make a match with his beautiful second cousin, Araminta.

But while proud, fiery Araminta and her shy, plain sister, Hetty, parade their very different charms before him, it’s their mother, Sybil, a lonely and discarded wife, who evokes first his sympathy and then stokes his lustful fires. 

As Stephen introduces Sybil to every pleasure she’s been deprived of, duty turns to a deep and mutual love. But with the unexpected arrival of a contender to the estate, Sybil realises that what she’s set in motion to save the family might have tragic consequences.

Heat rate: Sizzling


51XZhUWyHNLDANGEROUS GENTLEMENShy, plain Hetty was the wallflower beneath his notice…until a terrible mistake has one dangerous, delicious rake believing she’s the “fair Cyprian” ordered for his pleasure.

Shy, self-effacing Henrietta knows her place—in her dazzling older sister’s shadow. She’s a little brown peahen to Araminta’s bird of paradise. But when Hetty mistakenly becomes embroiled in the Regency underworld, the innocent debutante finds herself shockingly compromised by the dashing, dangerous Sir Aubrey, the very gentleman her heart desires. And the man Araminta has in her cold, calculating sights. 

Branded an enemy of the Crown, bitter over the loss of his wife, Sir Aubrey wants only to lose himself in the warm, willing body of the young “prostitute” Hetty. As he tutors her in the art of lovemaking, Aubrey is pleased to find Hetty not only an ardent student, but a bright, witty and charming companion. 

Despite a spoiled Araminta plotting for a marriage offer and a powerful political enemy damaging his reputation, Aubrey may suffer the greatest betrayal at the hands of the little “concubine” who’s managed to breach the stony exterior of his heart.

Heat rate – Sizzling


512JRvDeYKLTHE MYSTERIOUS GOVERNESSLissa Hazlett lives life in the shadows. The beautiful, illegitimate daughter of Viscount Partington earns her living as an overworked governess while her vain and spoiled half-sister, Araminta, enjoys London’s social whirl as its most feted debutante.

When Lissa’s rare talent as a portraitist brings her unexpectedly into the bosom of society – and into the midst of a scandal involving Araminta and suspected English traitor Lord Debenham – she finds an unlikely ally: charming and besotted Ralph Tunley, Lord Debenham’s underpaid, enterprising secretary. Ralph can’t afford to leave the employ of the villainous viscount much less keep a wife but he can help Lissa cleverly navigate a perilous web of lies that will ensure everyone gets what they deserve.

Cover + Blurb Reveals…Contemporary, Romantic Comedy & Historical, Western, Romance

Lake Redstone

by J.D. Hollyfield

Publication Date: July 22, 2019

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romantic Comedy

Casey doesn’t have much luck in the dating department, so when her girlfriends ditch their girls only weekend for a couple’s retreat, she’s forced to take desperate measures.

Refusing to be the only single one, she does what any quick-thinking girl would do:

She lies.

It was almost too easy hiring a stranger to pretend to be her hot, rich, successful boyfriend. What she didn’t plan on was him being hot, successful, and way too much trouble for her liking.

Jim was in a slump in his everyday life. He was bored and needed something to spice up his life. Accepting a gig to play the perfect boy toy was not what he had in mind, but it was too good to turn down.

What he didn’t plan for was the smokin’ little spitfire who hired him. It’s a con, a job, a fraud. But the more she’s in his presence, the more he realizes she may be more than just a ruse.

Three days at a lake house.
Two strangers who cause a lot of mayhem.
One little lie.

What could go wrong?

The Bridal Train Series

by Emberly Hart

Genres: Adult, Historical, Western, Romance

Preorder: Amazon

Start the Series: Amazon

Maisie thinks of herself as a tough, resourceful woman, and that’s about to be put to the test. After leaving her abusive husband and making off with all the cash she can carry, her only goal is to stay out of sight and survive. Then she learns her husband is six feet under. She should be able to relax, only she fears she will be blamed for his murder. So she hops a train and finds herself as a Bridal Train Bride.

Henry Cartwright loves tending the land, growing crops and raising animals for market, though it’s a lonely life. When his family urges him to take a wife, he can’t think of anything he has to offer a female besides hard work, but he settles on a Bridal Train Bride. Maisie is soft-spoken and reserved, leaving Henry thinking of her as a frightened animal, and he longs to set her at ease.

With newfound freedom and peace in her heart at long last, Maisie begins to wonder if she was wrong about all men being the same. Maybe this one deserves a chance—and a bit of the kindness he doles out to her so easily. When problems arise on the farm, they’re forced to work together and fight for the life they share. It just might be time for Maisie to dig up that satchel full of money she buried out back.

A wallflower and a rake

Lady Amelia Chase is a wallflower and a bluestocking. William Maddox would never show interest in the likes of her. So why is he being so attentive? There must be a catch.

It began as a friendly wager. But the more time he spends with the beautifully shy Amelia, the more he wishes it hadn’t. He can’t take it back now, and the thought of telling her makes his chest tighten. But should she find out…

A quick read…

An Uncommon Beauty…

Hidden away in rural Devonshire, Phyllida Satterthwaite has always been considered more odd than beautiful. But in London, her oddity has made her a sensation. Far worse, it’s caught the eye of the sinister Duke of Moreland–a notorious art collector obsessed with acquiring one-of-a-kind treasures. To escape the duke’s clutches, she’s going to need a little help.

Chicks,Rogues and Scandals

Hello my lovely readers! I have the massive pleasure to be sharing my review of the incredible; Mrs Sommersby’s Second Chance by Laurie Benson. To say I have been excited about this book is an understatement and I am so pleased to say that this is a stunner…I may waffle on a wee bit, which I apologise for, so grab a cuppa and enjoy.

Now she’s met her own unlikely match!

Part of The Sommersby Brides. Widowed society matchmaker Mrs Clara Sommersby thinks handsome self-made businessman Mr William Lane is just the man for her neighbour’s overlooked daughter. He’s successful and confident, if somewhat emotionally distant, until suddenly—shockingly—his attention turns to Clara herself!

Well, what to say about this, other than; My goodness, I…

BLURB:

Jenny Crowley has been duped! At her eighteenth birthday celebration her parents announce that instead of having the London Season she’s dreamed of for years, Jenny has been betrothed from birth to Alexander Isley, son of family friends and heir to a title. A distraught Jenny refuses point-blank to marry Alec, and when her aunt offers to whisk her away to a Christmas house party, complete with many eligible young bachelors, Jenny jumps at the chance to enjoy a variety of entertainments, be courted, and perhaps fall in love.

Alec Isley is between a rock and a hard place. He desires a marriage with Jenny no more than she does, but when his family’s dire financial status is revealed, he follows Jenny to the house party in hopes of convincing her to marry him after all. When he discovers who else is courting her there, Alec is frantic to keep her from making a dreadful mistake. Struggling with new-found feelings for his childhood friend, can Alec convince her of his love in time to save her from being ruined under the mistletoe?

BLURB:

Return to Evergreen, the town where Christmas wishes come true… But only if you know what your heart really wants.

When Lisa takes a last-minute Christmas trip to her hometown of Evergreen, she finds that the historic general store has closed. The place was a beloved local tradition, and she decides to use her skills as a professional retail designer to bring it back to its former glory. She charms a local contractor, Kevin, into working with her, and the pair find themselves facing one surprise after another.

One of the biggest surprises of all is finding the mysterious 25-year-old letter to Santa that never made it to the North Pole. Who really wrote it, and will its request come true at last? And will Lisa and Kevin figure out what they’re truly wishing for?

My Thoughts:

I love these sweetly romantic Hallmark Christmas stories.
This one was a movie last season and now we get a Nancy Naigle written interpretation of this wonderful story.
I didn’t see the movie and in a way l am glad because I read this book with a fresh view on things.
If you are Hallmark Movies and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries fan you are sure to love this book.
I gave this sweet holiday romance 4.2 of 5.0 stars.
I received a complimentary copy of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
