She belonged to another… But was destined to be his…

Lady Arbella de Mowbray abhors the idea of marrying an English noble occupying Scotland. When she arrives in Stirling, she is thrown into the midst of a full battle between the Scots and the English. Besieged by rebels, she is whisked from her horse by a Highland warrior who promises her safety. But when he kisses her she fears she’s more in danger of losing herself.

The last thing Magnus Sutherland wants is to marry the beautiful English lass he saved. As the laird of his clan, he has a responsibility to his clan and allies. But when Arbella is attacked by one of his own men, he determines the only way to keep her safe is to make her his. A decision that promises to be extremely satisfying.

Magnus brings Arbella to his home of Dunrobin Castle in the Highlands. And that’s where the trouble begins… Their countries are at war and they should be each other’s enemy. Neither one considered their mock marriage would grow into a deeply passionate love. What’s more, they were both unhappily betrothed and those who’ve been scorned are out for revenge. Can their new found love keep them together or will their enemies tear them apart?

(Full-length Scottish romance novel of approximately 260 pages.)

pro_pbid_2611270Chief Torrin MacLeod vows to possess and wed the spirited lady who stole his heart the previous winter. But Lady Jessie MacKay wants naught to do with the dangerous warrior, no matter how devilishly handsome and charming he is. When Torrin arrives unexpectedly at Jessie’s home, along with Gregor MacBain, a man Jessie was formerly handfasted to, she is thrown off-kilter. She never wanted to see either man again, but now they are vying for her hand. Torrin promises to protect her from the devious MacBain, but how can she trust Torrin when she has witnessed how lethal he is?

The more time Torrin spends with the strong and independent Jessie, the more determined he is to win her heart. Once she allows him a kiss, he feels her passion flame as hot as his own. After she knows Torrin better, Jessie finds herself falling for the fearsome Highlander. But the odds are stacked against them. The sinister MacBain is bent on kidnapping Jessie, making her his bride and killing Torrin, while Jessie’s conniving younger brother, Haldane, is determined to use Jessie to take over the castle in his older brother’s absence. Jessie fears she can never be with the man she loves, while Torrin will do everything in his power to ensure they are together forever. In his heart, she is the only lady for him.

“Ms. Sinclair pens fantastic historical romance… fascinating, fast-paced and filled with passionate characters.” Night Owl Reviews

Excerpt:

Her gaze landed on Torrin MacLeod first. A wave of panic and something far more disturbing washed over her. The man was just as striking and attractive as the last time she’d seen him, mayhap more so, with his compelling green eyes, long chestnut hair and tall, lean frame. He was one of the few men who towered over her. But looking into his eyes filled her with a mixture of dread, fear, and something she didn’t want to think about.
She quickly switched her gaze to Gregor MacBain. His black hair was much longer than it had been the last time she’d seen him and a scruffy short beard covered the lower half of his face. His dark-brown eyes had once completely bewitched her, but now she could hardly tolerate the sight of him. She had been so young and naïve when she’d first met him.
“Lady Jessie,” Gregor said in a cheerful tone, then bowed deeply. His conciliatory smile annoyed her greatly. “I’m so glad to see you, lass.”
“What do you want, Gregor?” she demanded.
Torrin snorted, one side of his lips kicking up in a half smile as he watched her with pronounced interest.
Heat rushed over her and she immediately felt even more edgy than before. No matter how disconcerting she found him, she simply needed to ignore Torrin, but remain ever vigilant around him for he was a dangerous man. She had seen firsthand what kind of lethal warrior he was.
“Is that any way to greet your husband?” Gregor cajoled.
“You are not my husband,” she stated firmly, sending him what she hoped was a cutting glare. “You married another woman.”
“Aye, but she passed giving birth to my son. I made a mistake. I never should’ve left you for her. I ken you must have missed me.”
“You’re wrong. I hardly remember much about you. And our marriage was not a legal one, so you were never my husband, in truth. ‘Twas only a handfasting.” She detested the Highland practice of trial marriage for a year and a day, to see if the woman would conceive a bairn, before the legal marriage took place. This, of course, benefited the man, usually a chief who needed an heir. She would never willingly enter into one of these arrangements again. She’d much prefer to remain unmarried and be of service to her family and clan.
Gregor sighed. “A storm is blowing in off the sea. Will you not let us in and feed us supper? What of Highland hospitality?”
“I have no hospitality or sympathy for you,” she said.
“Allow me to talk to the lady alone.” Torrin’s tone was low and deep, but most disturbing of all, he never took his eyes off her.

Publisher Description:

The Lady is Trouble Cover

In the first in Tracy Sumner’s sizzling League of Lords historical series, mysticism in Victorian England is the setting for a captivating love affair . . .

He’s a viscount with a dark past who yearns for the one woman he can’t have. She’s rebellious, spurned by society and determined to change his mind.

What’s a defiant woman to do when the man she’s meant for doesn’t believe in love?

After three years of waiting for Julian Alexander to realize they are destined to be together, Lady Piper Scott takes matters into her own hands. Because her gift as a healer has never done anything but distance her from the most principled man in England. A meaningless diversion as a medium, all done to gain a certain wandering viscount’s attention, backfires. As most endeavors have for a woman known in the ton as Scandalous Scott.

What’s a reluctant viscount to do when the woman he can’t have becomes the woman he can’t live without?

Julian Alexander, Lord Beauchamp, battled his way from the lowliest slum to assume his title. He carries not only a turbulent past, but a mystical psychic gift that separates him from society. Honorable to his core, he is committed to protecting a community of outcasts with abilities like his own. He has no time, no place, for love. Or repeatedly rescuing the most outrageous, beguiling woman he’s ever known. Even if she needs his protection most—and he desires her above all others.

Seduction, intrigue and desire lead to an explosive passion…

Julian vowed to shield Piper from the deadly foes seeking to possess her powerful gift. Although he needs her help in controlling his own, the mix could be deadly. Soon what was once a simple agreement to work together becomes enchantingly complex as they surrender to a timeless love…

He woos her with books, flowers, and chocolates. She can’t say no to him, but can’t say yes to love.

Blurb:

Once a Fallen LadyLydia Taylor’s roof is leaking, her chickens are out of control, and she can’t afford the rent. When her daughter falls ill, the last person she wants knocking at her door is gorgeous school teacher Alfred Lowe. His scowl makes her feel like he can see through her façade of a respectable widow and judge all her secrets.

To achieve his dream of his own school, Alfred Lowe needs to marry a wealthy lady. But from the moment Lydia Taylor fell at his feet, he’s been awkwardly attracted to her. What begins as duty to support one of his pupil’s mothers soon becomes much more complicated. Maybe even… love?

But amongst kisses, tears, and savory pies, the past creeps into the present, casting a long shadow. If they risk love, they could lose everything they’ve ever wanted. 

Tropes:

  • ‘Fallen woman’ heroine
  • Seduction via books and chocolates
  • Hot teacher hero, mother of student heroine
  • Beta/Cinnamon roll hero
  • Virgin hero, not virgin heroine
  • There’s… chickens? And cock jokes. Does that count?

What People are Saying:

“Excuse me while I squeal in utter delight but this book was so good. I was instantly bewitched by Lydia and Alfred.” Mikku-Chan

“How I loved this story! Alfred Lowe was the ultimate hero, he was handsome, caring and kindhearted.” Cheryl

“Get this because it will just put a goofy smile on your face and make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.” The Butterfly Reader

My Thoughts:

As the crisis of Annie Taylor’s illness deepens, Alfred woos Lydia, her mother with chocolate, savory pies, flowers, and novels. But the past creeps into the present, casting a long shadow. They must choose whether they can love, despite the risk to everything they’ve ever wanted.
I have read two other books by this author and although I found both to be OK reads I was unsure if I would want to read another.
If this had been the first book I read by this author I would have jumped at the chance to read more.
This is the best I have read by her. If all of her books were of this quality she would be a favorite on my list.
I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars.
I received a complimentary ARC of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Synopsis:

Blane Ross is fighting a one-man war. Revenge is all the drives him. 

However, when he stops at a castle for information and rest, he doesn’t expect to come across a fierce, beautiful lass in sole charge. But Blane doesn’t have time to aid the attractive lass, no matter how much her haunting blue eyes tug at a heart he thought had turned to stone long ago. The only way he’ll ever feel whole again is to ensure the mercenaries pay. 

Desperate for help, Ceana rejoices at the arrival of this impressive stranger. With all the men joining the fight against the English at Bannockburn, it’s up to Ceana to ensure their fathers and brothers have a home to return to. She’ll do anything to make the highlander stay, even giving away her one secret. 

Blane receives his chance for revenge, but at what cost? Will Ceana and her family pay the price for his negligence just as his village did? Or can he protect them, even while he finds himself drawn to the stubborn woman and blinded by an attraction deeper than his thirst for English blood?

Her Highland Defender is a steamy Scottish romance, perfect for those who love a touch of history, heat, and a hero willing to do anything to protect his lass.

My Thoughts:

Reviewed: Dec 30, 2019 

While six thousand Scots follow Robert the Bruce to wage war on the English at Bannockburn, Blane Ross is fighting his own war—single-handedly. After the indiscriminate slaughter of his village at the hands of English mercenaries, he wants revenge. However, when he stops at a castle for information and rest, he doesn’t expect to come across a fierce, beautiful lass in sole charge.

Though this isn’t the type of book I have come to expect from Samantha Holt, it may have been one of her best. This isn’t the lighthearted regency but a much more intense book.
After starting this read I simply could not put it down.
I gave this book 4.4 of 5.0 stars for story line and character development. I received a complimentary copy via Booksprout to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book and all thoughts are my own.

Synopsis:

DuchessofHisHeart_eCover_900He once loved her beyond all reason. Dare he risk heartbreak again?

Leaving her first love behind was the hardest thing Regine, Duchess of Heartwaite, had ever done. Her marriage of convenience to another man saved her family, even as it laid waste to her heart. That was years ago, however. Now widowed, she’s ready to begin her life anew. But all it takes is one glimpse of her former sweetheart to realize the feelings she buried so long ago are still there, stronger than ever. Unfortunately, his feelings for her are decidedly colder…

Solicitor James Brentwood has only one mistress these days—his work. Being jilted by his betrothed taught him love simply wasn’t worth the cost. But Regine is back in England now, more beautiful and alluring than ever. And it’s not long before he begins to feel things he has no business feeling. Especially not for her. Not again.  

But when a nemesis intent on destroying Regine emerges, it’s James who must come to her rescue. Can they overcome their differences and painful past to claim their happily ever after? Or will their second chance at love end as disastrously as their first?

Join The Ladies’ Society For The Care of the Widows and Orphans of Fallen Heroes and the Children of Wounded Veterans in their pursuit of justice, charity, and soul-searing romance.

The Napoleonic Wars have left England with wounded warriors, fatherless children, unemployed veterans, and hungry families. The ladies of London, led by the indomitable Duchess of Haverford plot a campaign to feed the hungry, care for the fallen—and bring the neglectful Parliament to heel. They will use any means at their disposal to convince the gentlemen of their choice to assist.

Their campaign involves strategy, persuasion, and a wee bit of fun. Pamphlets are all well and good, but auctioning a lady’s company along with her basket of delicious treats is bound to get more attention. Their efforts fall amid weeks of fog and weather so cold the Thames freezes over and a festive Frost Fair breaks out right on the river. The ladies take to the ice. What could be better for their purposes than a little Fire and Frost?

Celebrate Valentine’s Day 2020 with five interconnected Regency romances from the Bluestocking Belles.

Melting Matilda

Her scandalous birth prevents Matilda Grenford from being fully acceptable to Society, even though she has been a ward of the Duchess of Haverford since she was a few weeks old. Her half-brother, the Marquis of Aldridge, is convinced she will one day be wooed by a worthy gentleman, but Matilda has no such expectations. The only man who has ever interested her gave her an outrageous kiss a year ago and has avoided her ever since.

Charles, the Earl of Hamner is honour bound to ignore his attraction to Matilda Grenford. She is an innocent and a lady, and in every way worthy of his respect—but she is base-born. His ancestors would rise screaming from their graves if he made her his countess.

When his mother and her guardian begin collaborating on Her Grace’s annual charity fundraiser, neither Charles nor Matilda sees a way to avoid working together. And neither can forget the kiss they once shared.

My One True Love

Major Arthur Trevor PenRhyddyrch, Earl of Trehallow, returned to Wales from war and found his best friend gone. No one would speak her name let alone tell him where she might be. Then he found her in the frosty London fog of January 1814 only to lose her in the next moment.

When Miss Mary Percival Cummins saw Trevor in the fog, she ran. She knew he would hate her once he heard what others said, and the memory of their friendship was too dear for her to survive knowing he despised her.

But fate and the Duchess of Haverford had different plans. Her Grace knew, if they did not, that these two friends deserved the happiness of finding their one true love.

A Second Chance at Love

Viscount Digby Osgood returns to London after a two-year absence, planning to avoid the woman he courted and then left. Surely she has moved on with her life; even married by now. A bit of encouragement from a friend, however, pushes him to seek the lady out. Can she ever forgiven him and give them a second chance at love?

Lady Constance Whittles has only cared for one man in her life. Even after he broke her heart, it remains fixed on him. Another man tries to replace him, but she soon learns she can never feel for him a shadow of what she still feels for Digby. One brief encounter with Digby confirms it; she is more than willing to forgive him. Can they truly take up where they left off?

Charity projects and a Frost Fair on the Thames bring them together, but another stands in their way. Will he tear them apart?

The Umbrella Chronicles

There comes a time in every bachelor’s life, when his good-natured but meddling sister gets it into her mind to play matchmaker. And in every occasion, they contact none other than Lady Harriett Ross, self-proclaimed Motley Meddler, the Mistress of Destiny, and Wielder of the Infamous Umbrella.

Enter the Duke of Eastly. A man with just such a sister. He has scars, thinks society is nonsense, and prefers to stay far away from any and allshenanigans. But he could never resist his sibling, who tells him a sorrowful tale of woe, of a dear friend’s shy plight ahead of an important auction at the Frost Fair of 1814. No worries. He has the perfect solution. Help is on the way!

Enter the friend, Miss Artemis Synclaire. The precise opposite of timid and shy. And as such, she won’t stand for the Beast’s asinine resolution. She’d rather dine with an elephant (which could actually be arranged) than deal with a man such as he.

Can two such stubborn people ever bend enough to discover they’ve found their perfect match?

Highland Devil CoverTo a Banshee, revenge is a dish best served screaming…

Kylah MacKay was brutalized and burned alive, but denied her vengeance by a cruel twist of fate. She’s drawn to the one man more damaged then her, and becomes a pawn in an ancient war that may cost her very soul. Somehow this man, who has no use for emotion or love, awakens a dangerous desire she’d though died with her.

He’s a man out of time…

Daroch McLeod is a ruthless and brilliant Druid driven by a single purpose: Retribution. Abused and tormented, he’s promised not to stop until he’s retaliated against his immortal captors. And he’s never been closer to his goal. Daroch refuses to let the beautiful, inquisitive Banshee, who haunts his every step, uncover his deadly secrets.

Can two souls searching for vengeance find redemption instead?

Join the MacKay Banshees as they each find a love that will be worth defying the forces of evil and risking their souls to save our world.


“Whether she’s writing about Celtic Druids, Victorian bad boys, or brash Irish FBI Agents, Kerrigan Byrne uses her borderline-obsessive passion for history, her extensive Celtic ancestry, and her love of Shakespeare in every book.”

Synopsis:

A Kirkus Reviews 2019 Best Romance Novel, the first in an exciting new series by USA Today bestseller Kerrigan Byrne!

How to Love a Duke in Ten days Cover
These men are dark, bold, and brave. And there is only one woman who can bring them to their knees…

Famed and brilliant, Lady Alexandra Lane has always known how to look out for to herself. But nobody would ever expect that she has darkness in her past—one that she pays a blackmailer to keep buried. Now, with her family nearing bankruptcy, Alexandra strikes upon a solution: Get married to one of the empire’s most wealthy eligible bachelors. Even if he does have the reputation of a devil.

 

 

 

LOVE TAKES NO PRISONERS

Piers Gedrick Atherton, the Duke of Redmayne, is seeking revenge and the first step is securing a bride. Winning a lady’s hand is not so easy, however, for a man known as the Terror of Torcliff. Then, Alexandra enters his life like a bolt of lightning. When she proposes marriage, Piers knows that, like him, trouble haunts her footsteps. But her gentleness, sharp wit, independent nature, and incredible beauty awakens every fierce desire within him. He will do whatever it takes to keep her safe in his arms.

“Romantic, lush, and suspenseful.”: New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Enoch

My Thoughts:

Famed and brilliant, Lady Alexandra Lane has always known how to look out for to herself. But nobody would ever expect that she has darkness in her past.

Piers Gedrick Atherton, the Duke of Redmayne, is seeking revenge and the first step is securing a bride.

Winning a lady’s hand is not so easy, however, for a man known as the Terror of Torcliff.
When Alexandra proposes marriage, Piers knows that, like him, trouble haunts her footsteps.

I was taken in from the first chapter. Although I am not a fan of rape scenes this one is necessary to explain Alexandra’s fear and need.
Alexandra has a secret that only a select few friends know of, however someone else must know because she is paying a blackmailer. Could the blackmailer be someone she considers her friend?

Piers knows his life is in danger. Unlike Alexandra he knows the source of that danger.
Can this unlikely pair be more to each other than a source of comfort in their mutual time of need. Will ten days be enough to bring love instead of just mutual need to this couple?

I gave this newest Kerrigan Byrne book 4.6 of 5.0 stars for story line and character development. I have seldom read anything by this author that I did not like.
The wonderful ending was reason enough to read through some otherwise unsavory scenes to finish this otherwise enthralling book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Ace of Hearts

Game of Love Book 1

by Khardine Gray

Genre: Bad Boy Mafia Romance

She was the innocent I was meant to resist, but she feels like my last chance at redemption.
She’s the beautiful fiery angel.
You look at her and you forget… everything.
Past, present and future. You just forget.
I’ve been called many things in my life.
Marine, agent, hacker, thief, killer…
Now I’m a fraud.
I’m here for one single reason – to steal from her father, the Vegas Mafia King .
Eliminate him if I need to.
Greedy mobster…he got caught up in something above him and dragged her in too.
I dropped my guard and got lost in her.
Mind, body, and soul.
The angel drew me in at hello.
With a body made for serious sinning, Jia Marchesi reminded me of what I wanted and never had.
I want her to be mine.
But… the more I dig the more secrets I find.
The more I realize what’s going on is above me too.
Danger and death are on the horizon.
Sorry, Bellezza. You got dealt a cruel hand.
I should have stayed away from you..
You were my big mistake. I was always a threat.
In the end, there’s no way this will end well.
Not for me
Nor for you.
Please note Ace of Hearts is book 1 in the Game of Love series. This book ends with a Cliffhanger. Xander and Jia’s story continues in Tease of Spades and Queen of his Heart.

Tease of Spades

Game of Love Book 2

I wasn’t sure which was worse.
Being with her or being without her.
Both seemed to carry its own weight of grief.
Maybe it would have been better to just leave, get out of her life and she’d never see me again.
I’d shared several moments with this woman I shouldn’t have had.
She’d looked desperate to me. I just didn’t know at the time what the desperate was.
The desperation was to be saved.
Freedom.
People like that were best left alone if you couldn’t help them.
Not only had I potentially blown the mission, but I’d made her life worse just for being with her.
Now all hell was breaking loose.
My enemy has returned and he knows she’s my weakness.
It’s only a matter of time before heads will roll.
Please note Tease of Spades is book 2 in the Game of Love series. This book ends with a Cliffhanger. Pretty please read the books in order for your enjoyment of this series. Xander and Jia’s story continues in Queen of his Heart.

Queen of His Heart

Game of Love Book 3

Better to be on the right hand of the devil than in his path.
I stole the mafia princess and lost her all in one breath.
She was the innocent in the mix.
I broke every rule in the book with her.
I didn’t just involve her in a top-secret mission, I got involved with her.
It made me reckless and I slipped up.
I had to make the deal with the devil if I wanted a chance to get her back.
Death and danger are on the horizon.
Jia belongs to me and I won’t allow her to die.
Please note Queen of His Heart is book 3 in the Game of Love series.
This book is the continuation of Xander and Jia’s story. Pretty please read the books in order for your enjoyment of this series. xx

Hell Hath No Fury CoverWhen a merchant’s daughter meets London’s Ton, sparks fly.

Forever a Wallflower….

Miss Cecily Findlay practices proper etiquette, dances the waltz flawlessly, wears clothes of the latest fashion, and is a beauty in her own right. Even so, she’d never be received by the ton if not for her enormous dowry…which has attracted Flavion Nottingham, a spoiled and entitled earl. This so-called gentleman has beggared his estate and sees Cecily as the answer to all his problems. Most dastardly of all, he doesn’t care if he shatters her dreams while executing his devious scheme.
Forever the Spare….

Mr. Stephen Nottingham, successful industrialist, is back in England to save his cousin’s (ahem) assets but may have arrived too late. The clean-up involves settling massive debts, dismissing a clinging mistress, and dealing with more than one irate papa. None of that matters, however, as much as saving the beautiful Cecily.

A Forever kind of Love….

Cecily is trapped by Lord Kensington, and Stephen is trapped by his honor. Happily ever after hangs in the balance. Will fate open the doors for their enduring love?

Hell’s Bell is the third book in the Devil’s Debutantes Series but can also be read as a standalone novel. It has been nominated for Best Historical Short Novel as a finalist in RWA’s Distinguished 2019 Rita © Awards.

Publisher’s Description:

Devilish Debutantes Book #3There comes a time in a lady’s life when she needs to take matters into her own hands…

A Scheming Minx

Emily Goodnight, a curiously smart bluestocking – who cannot see a thing without her blasted spectacles – is raising the art of meddling to new heights. Why leave her future in the hands of fate when she’s perfectly capable of managing it herself?

An Apathetic Rake

The Earl of Blakely, London’s most unattainable bachelor, finds Miss Goodnight’s schemes nearly as intriguing as the curves hidden beneath her frumpy gowns. Secure in his independence, he’s focussed on one thing only: evading this father’s manipulating ways. In doing so, ironically, he fails to evade the mischief of Emily’s managing ploys.

Hell’s Bell Indeed

What with all the cheating at parlor games, trysts in dark closets, and nighttime flights to Gretna Green, complications arise. Because fate has limits. And when it comes to love and the secrets of the past, there’s only so much twisting one English Miss can get away with…

My Thoughts:

Reviewed Sep 17, 2018

I have read this entire series so far and in my opinion this is the best of the three books.
It is totally absorbing and leaves you both laughing and crying. Our heroine has a mother who is determined to marry her off or send her to live with an aunt. This just won’t do.

Our hero has an equally manipulative father. In trying to evade his father’s schemes he falls right into the trap that is Emily.

I loved this book. I didn’t think this series could get any better but it did.
This book is one for my keeper shelf.

I gave it 4.9 of 5.0 stars for story line, plot and character development.

This is a sexy and angsty tale that is not to be missed.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
