Publisher’s Description:

Being the fairest one of all comes at a high price… 

To the north of the Varis empire, a mysterious faction spreads propaganda against the vampire monarchy. Friedrich Volya, the Duke of Winter Hill, seeks to discover who they are before his uncle finds them first. King Dominik will punish the traitors with brutal force.

Local schoolteacher, the raven-haired Brennalyn, is on her own mission—to spy on the duke and discover what she can for the Black Lily. She longs to help the commonwealth and bring justice to the many orphans left behind from the ravages of the blood madness, like the children she lovingly keeps in her care. What she doesn’t plan for is the heart-pounding attraction she feels for the duke, enemy to the Black Lily.

But when Brennalyn’s secret puts her life and the life of her children in danger, Friedrich steps in as her protector, she finds out there’s more to the duke than she thought.

My Thoughts:

So far in this series we have had fairytale takes on Cinderella, Red Riding Hood and now Snow White.
This newest book of this series is lightly based on Snow White. Instead of seven dwarfs we have seven orphaned children, the most endearing one to me is Izzy who we have already met briefly in one of the prior books. She is a star and a scene stealer with her speech impediment. and her trusting nature.

Friedrich Volya, the Duke of Winter Hill is not like his father before him or his cruel uncle. He actually sides with the faction of the Black Lily, fully supporting their cause.

Local schoolteacher,  Brennalyn is trying very hard to discover what she can for the Black Lily. She has no idea that Friedrich, a Vampire Duke, is also on their side, after all aren’t almost all Vampires their enemy.
After they discover that they have the cause of the Black Lily in common will these two prior enemies come together and profess their love and devotion to not only their mutual cause but each other?

I gave this third book in this series 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a high sensual rating of 4.5 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy between this hero and heroine literally burns.
This wonderfully written book is a page turner and one for the keeper shelves.

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

Publisher’s Description:

Will Emily forego love for a chance at independence?

Emily Preston wants only to become an artist. As the nation teeters on the brink of civil war, she must wage her own battle against the restrictive ideology of her father. Women belong at home on the plantation beneath the watchful eye of a husband or father–NOT at a university. But several schools in the North have opened their doors to women. How can she make her father see just how much it means to her to study under a master?

Independence isn’t the only contentious point between them. A recent visit to her uncle’s home in Detroit has called Emily’s entire upbringing into question, but her father doesn’t appreciate her criticisms of his management of Ella Wood, the Preston family plantation. Then there’s the problem of Thaddeus Black, the handsome, charming young man who simply won’t take no for an answer. It could be that the real fight lies within her heart, which stubbornly refuses to accept that a choice for independence must be a choice against love.

Three innocent debutantes must work to solve the mysterious death of their childhood friend. With undaunted determination they pledge to not only expose the man responsible for their friend’s tragic death on her wedding night, but to also uncover other unscrupulous men of the ton who would jeopardize the future of other young women.


The Disappearance of Lady Edith

51aZ1TA7OKL__UY250_

The Undaunted Debutantes, #1

$0.99 in E-Book 

Publisher’s Description:

One tragic night changed sensible, proper Lady Edith Pelton’s life: when her best friend fell to her death, pushed down a flight of stairs by a nefarious lord.
Now, Edith dedicates her time watching the man she thinks is responsible, while gathering other information to expose other scoundrels posing as gentlemen of honor about London. But when her spying is noticed by a perfect stranger, Edith finds herself with two mysteries—what happened to her friend, and how to win the heart of a brilliantly handsome lord.

My Thoughts:

What a first meeting! Edith is up a tree. Of course that is the best place to be for spying on the man she thinks responsible for her friend’s death.
How was she to know a complete stranger would catch her spying and cause her to tumble from the tree branches and end up with her skirts over her head and her knickers the first thing the stranger sees.

Tristan no longer lives in his father’s house. He has been banished after his father marries the woman Tristan was in love with. He is just leaving his father’s house when he spies a woman perched in a tree on his father’s property. He startles her and she takes a tumble out of the tree and almost into his arms.

This book is another winner from Christina McKnight. It has it’s decidedly comical moments as well as a but of mystery, danger and intrigue.

It is a relatively quick read with dangerous moments and a little bit of newly found love thrown in for good measure.

I gave this book 4.25 of 5 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 2.5 of 5 flames.

The Misfortune of Lady Lucianna

51wAvj1dUxL__UY250_

The Undaunted Debutantes, #2

$2.99 in E-Book

Publisher’s Description:

Quick-witted hellion Lucianna Constantine has no doubt who was responsible for the death of her dear friend. And she will stop at nothing to expose his transgressions—and those of every despicable man in London. Lucianna has witnessed the cruelty of London’s beau monde her entire life…starting with her own father. So she is more than willing to singlehandedly take down every vile man that crosses her path.

Roderick Crofton, the Duke of Montrose, had his entire family fortune stolen when his father trusted the wrong men. After a scandalous article surfaces in the London Daily Gazette, written by the notorious Mayfair Confidential columnist, Roderick finds himself financially destitute, without a betrothed, and lacking the means to find the lords responsible for duping his sire. With little option left, Roderick has only one choice: find another wealthy heiress to wed. His quest brings him to Lady Lucianna Constantine, and soon, he can’t deny that he wants her for more than just her dowry.

However, Luci has secrets that could change everything. And when Roderick uncovers what those confidences entail, it could mean misfortune for all involved.

My Thoughts:

This is book #2 of this new series and every bit as good as book #1.

Lucianna actually witnessed the death of her friend. With the aid of her friends Edith and Ophelia she means to bring that man to justice. Now her father intends to marry her off to the same man who is responsible for her friend’s death.
In the mean time these three friends intend to bring down every scoundrel in London with their anonymous Mayfair Confidential articles in the London Gazette.

Roderick Crofton, the Duke of Montrose’ father had lost the family’s fortune to unscrupulous characters. He now needs to put the family’s accounts to rights by marrying a wealthy heiress.
A mistaken article written by these three has ruined his chances with his betrothed. Now he need a new solution to his problem.

Can these two adversaries make a match that will save them both?

This book is filled with bits of mystery, mayhem and love. I gave it 4.5 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3 of 5 flames.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book to read from the author via Bookfunnel. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

The Misadventures of Lady Ophelia

51akiiLk+-L__UY250_

The Undaunted Debutantes Book 3

$2.99 in E-Book

Publisher’s Description:

Quiet, reserved, Lady Ophelia Fletcher always has her nose stuck in a book; hence why she didn’t witness the death of her friend the fateful night of her passing. Now, she writes the Mayfair Confidential column to expose unsavory men as a way of making amends for not backing her other friend’s claims of murder. When a handsome stranger arrives to meet with her father, Ophelia is helpless to keep from investigating the dashing lord.

Colin Parnell, Lord Hawke, has a promise to uphold: find the book that proves his grandpapa worked as a spy for King George II and did not die as a no-good smuggler off the coast of Kent. Shrouded in mystery and scandal, the Parnell family has been at war with one another for decades, and Colin is determined to put a stop to it all by discovering proof of the family’s honorable past. Unfortunately, the book he seeks is in the hands of a fiery-haired beauty, and he’ll need to enlist Ophelia’s help to uncover the truth.

Ophelia is more than happy to use her skills to help Lord Hawke. But will their search for answers lead to misadventure, or will they get something greater than they bargained for: the truth and each other?

My Thoughts:

This is the final installment of the series and an exceptionally well written story with a surprise in store. Our suspected murder is not the culprit after all. The killer is not someone who was ever suspected. That’s enough of a spoiler. I won’t spoil the whole thing by revealing the killer’s identity.

Lady Ophelia has always been a follower so when her father forbids her to go to Gretna Green with her friends when they decide to elope she does something unexpected when she strikes out on an adventure of her own. This is a surprise as Ophelia has never been very adventurous except in her taste in the books she prefers. She usually takes things in stride and does what she is told to.

Colin Parnell, Lord Hawke, has promised to find the book that proves his grandpapa worked as a spy for King George II and did not die as a no-good smuggler off the coast of Kent for his feisty Grandmother, Molly.
Colin is attracted to the fiery haired beauty whom his Grand mama immediately dubs a devil’s spawn due to her auburn locks.

Will these two come together in spite of opposition in the end or will Ophelia’s father and Colin’s grandmother cause an irreparable rift between the two likely lovers?

The character of Molly, Colin’s Grand Mama is delightful and a very memorable addition to this sometimes comical story. It is my favorite of the three books in this series.

I gave this book 4.75 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3 of 5 flames. This story has more mystery than sexual interaction, therefore the lower sensual rating.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

stars-4-75

My Combined Rating of this set is 4.5 of 5.0 stars. Each book in the set has been individually reviewed and rated above.

These are sweet/clean titles with little to no intimacy. They are suitable for teens and young adults.

Love is more complicated than she thought…

And that doesn’t include the elves.

A note from Michelle:

21r5jMaM+9L__UX250_In the past, I’ve suffered from post apocalyptic stress syndrome while writing 5 Blanks, powered an ancient artifact using a pair of star-crossed lovers in Chest of Souls, recovered Christmas by unearthing the forgotten love story of the Klauses, and, in Pic Jump, saved a little girl from a terrorist organization armed with nothing but a Barbie head and a woman in a coma. Oh, and helped a woman get lost and find true love – with a ghost – in Hallows Gate.

People ask how I do what I do. Simply put: I LOVE what I do. I thrive on the written word! By the time you read this, I’ll be working with awesome new characters to turn upside down (or inside out), spinning more plots to weave into their lives and planting subplots to harvest when they aren’t looking.

I’m currently at work on House of Cards, a children’s urban fantasy I’m co-authoring with my oldest daughter. Naturally, I’m also working on other projects. I’m being haunted by characters that demand sequels, and those who simply want to get their fifteen minutes in the spotlight. Masters of Lightning, never-say-die ghosts, and Elves with attitude are among these.

It has been a long and miraculous (always mental), journey. I bid you good reads wherever you go and in case I don’t survive my next adventure, I left my will at the bottom of a volcano under a rock.

Are you still reading this? Good. Keep it up – and thanks for dropping by!

Publisher’s Description:

She spent her entire life in her clan’s castle being taught to be polite and civilized, being prepared for possible royalty, made to be the perfect lady of the castle. She was bred and raised for a single purpose—to be married off for her Laird father’s own political advantage.

When it is rumored that a neighboring clan is plotting to assassinate the Laird of Aldrich, Camy Crestwell’s family hires a bodyguard, Mathou Jameson, a rugged dirty highlander from the North with no manners and no filter, to hunt down the assassin.

Camy finds her prim and proper upbringing rudely disrupted by the rough highlander, but her heart is kindled with a surprising excitement when she is tasked with showing him around the castle. Perhaps having no filter and no discretion isn’t so bad after all—at least it’s a change from the mundane.

But when Mathou fails to make satisfactory progress finding the assassin, he finds the Laird turning the tables on him. If only Camy’s family knew what Mathou knows—the assassin’s target is not the Laird of Aldrich, but rather someone who has now become dear to Mathou….

Her Father’s Protector is a 30,000 word standalone novella with no cliffhangers.

 

My Thoughts:

This short novel/novella is not your usual romance read…

It has no Happily Ever After!

Camy, the laird’s daughter has thus far been allowed by her father to not marry. He had at one time chosen a man to betroth her to but suddenly he backed out of that arrangement. Now it appears that he needs someone to guard his back because there are rumors that someone wants him dead.

He hires a mercenary to guard him.

Mathou is the man who has been hired to guard Camy’s father. Much to her surprise, particularly after their first meeting, Camy finds herself attracted to him.
Will Mathou discover the truth about who the assassin intends to kill?

I gave this sad tale with a surprising turn of events 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.25 of 5.0 flames.
Be forewarned, this book doesn’t lead to your usual happy ending.

BLURB

USA Today and International bestselling author J.C. Valentine is back with the latest in her captivating, enigmatic, and rousing world of the Spartan Riders MC…

She has a secret she’s desperate to keep…

With danger looming on the horizon, former FBI agent turned bunny, Bambi Lane, isn’t taking any chances. Taking refuge in a nearby town, she builds a new and comfortable life under the radar, but when trouble comes knocking on her door, she finds that the one thing she’s worked so hard to protect is about to be exposed.

He has a desire that won’t be denied.

Curtis “Taco” Nash, the Spartan’s road captain, has always marched to the beat of his own drum, his only loyalty to that of his brothers and the club. Only one person has ever successfully clawed their way under Curtis Nash’s skin, and when she disappeared from his life without so much as a goodbye, he wrote her off—at least, he tried to. One mention of the one who got away, and he’s consumed with desire—and anger. He wants answers. He wants her. He’s about to get a lot more than he bargained for.

As the war between the cartel and the Spartans heats up, Taco has to decide if he’s going to protect his brothers or the new life that’s waiting for him. When everything hangs in the balance, one thing is clear: No one is safe. Will Bambi and Taco be able to come together and find the strength to take a leap of faith before time runs out?

NEW RELEASE EXCERPT – BRASH by J.C. Valentine

Who the fuck was this douche canoe? Taco had been sitting outside the little ranch-style house with the ugly box hedges and stone and weed planter boxes debating what to say once he saw Bambi when Khaki Man came strolling up the walkway.

At first, Taco thought he was a salesman, but it became quickly obvious that he was there for something more personal. Maybe it was the grocery store flowers and the bag of goodies that tipped him off. Taco was observant like that.

Douche canoe must be the new boyfriend, he thought with disdain as he watched him barter, and knowing Bambi, he had been certain the next course of action would be seeing Mr. Khaki do the walk of shame.

But she’d welcomed the fucker inside.

That had made Taco’s blood boil. He didn’t like the idea of her with another man, and he sure as shit didn’t like seeing another man with her. That he was in her house at all sent Taco’s thoughts spiraling down into a dark place.

He had to exercise every ounce of patience to make himself stay planted in his car, a newly rebuilt IROC. He’d figured it would be better to roll up in a car than on a motorcycle, especially if she had a kid. Made him look more responsible.

Shit, why did he even care what she thought? It wasn’t as if she was waiting around for him, pining away. She had a fucking man in her house, and he was the one sitting outside like a damn stalker.

Taco had his hand on the key, about to start the car and get the hell out of there, when Khakis came strolling out carrying a car seat in one hand and a baby in the other. Bambi was hot on his ass, and she was glowing.

She was wearing a pair of blue jeans and a pink, V-neck T-shirt that showed off a lot more cleavage than he remembered her having. Taco looked her over a little closer, noting that her hips seems a little rounder, her stomach a little softer, and her thighs a little heavier.

Damn, she looked good. She’d always been sexy, but now she was…hotter. Sexier.

“Shit,” Taco hissed. No way was she just babysitting that kid. All those new curves? Those were from pregnancy. She’d run off to have a fucking baby.

The question now was, whose kid was it, his or Mr. Rogers?

He’s a player. But she’s about to score.

Opposites really do attract* as a sassy salesgirl turns a pro athlete’s life upside down in this supercharged standalone novel of seduction from the author of Bossed.

Kelsey:

My mom would tell you I’m quite the catch, but since my last boyfriend, I haven’t been dating much. Maybe it’s my rocker style or my lack of filter that intimidates the boys. So I’m pleasantly surprised when Matt Stallworth waltzes into the indie record store where I work and gives as good he gets. Turns out Matt is a professional baseball player, which should mean he’s out of my league. But if he wants to hook up with me, he’s going to have to follow my rules.

Matt:

After winning my MVP award, I learned that a guy can get used to having beautiful women practically throw themselves at you everywhere you turn. But everything changes the first time I see Kelsey Martin, and something just clicks. She’s hot, snarky, and whip-smart. I’ve got to see her again. Only problem is, she sees right through all my best moves. And I’m going to have to step up my game to convince Kelsey that I’m playing for keeps.

*And sexy times ensue—for mature audiences.

My Thoughts:

The premise of this book intrigued me, however I was not in love with the sexually descriptive language used. There was too much of the “F” word and a certain course word describing the anatomy of a female.
I prefer words that don’t sound just plain vulgar.

The underlying story is excellent and rather sweet. I know it could have been told using a more cleanly based language.

Matt can’t believe he is so taken with Kelsey at first glance but he holds back to give her time to deal with her grief over the loss of a man she thinks of as her second father.

Kelsey, who has never had much luck with guys, always seeming to choose the wrong one, can’t believe her luck in attracting Matt.

Their mutual attraction is incredible, but Matt is secretly dealing with another issue. He is a free agent with an incredible contract offer from the New York Yankees.

Will he chose to stay with his home team or follow the money to New York? When will he tell Kelsey what is going on and when he does will she just let him go or follow her heart?

I gave this book 3.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a very heated sensual rating of 5.0 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy is hot, but I feel the descriptive language needs to be cleaned up considerably. If the language were less vulgar I would have given this book a higher rating.

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

CHARMED AT CHRISTMAS

includes:

Claire Delacroix’s A Duke By Any Other Name

Daphne Goodenham has always been determined to wed a duke—not just because she loves fine dresses and parties, but because she wants to guarantee that she and her sister are never destitute again. When she meets the Duke of Inverfyre, a notorious fop, she immediately notices intriguing inconsistencies. Is there more to the duke than meets the eye? Why would he hide the truth if he were handsome, young, rich and a duke? Alexander, the Duke of Inverfyre, is bent on catching a notorious thief who injured his sister, no matter what the cost. But when the lovely Miss Goodenham is bent on charming him, Alexander’s disguise proves to be no defense against her curiosity—and he has no resistance to her kiss. Will Daphne inadvertently foil Alexander’s plan? Will he have to sacrifice her interest to avenge his sister? Or can Daphne ensure Alexander’s triumph and make her own Christmas wish come true?

Deb Marlowe’s Lord Locryn and the Pixie’s Kiss

When is a kiss actually a curse? When an irate Pixie forbids you to kiss the wrong girl—ever. Unfortunately, Lord Locryn Pendarvis has no idea why girls are falling all over themselves not to kiss him. He only knows that after a certain point, the risk of humiliation outweighs desire. Until he meets Lady Gwyn Hambly again. She’s witty, charming and beautiful—and just as interested in him as he is in her. They’ll do anything to ensure their future together—even fight the supernatural forces aligned against them.

Erica Monroe’s The Determined Duchess

After the death of her beloved guardian, Miss Felicity Fields is left alone with an uncertain future. But this blunt bluestocking has a secret: she’s determined to resurrect her guardian through the ancient art of alchemy. The last thing she needs is the return of Nicholas Harding, the Duke of Wycliffe and rightful owner of her home on the wild coast of Cornwall. He stirs an unexpected passion within her, and Felicity has had enough change in her life.
When they were children, Nicholas never understood his aunt’s brilliant but unemotional ward, or her many scientific studies. Now, he’s determined to bring Felicity to London so that she may make a match within society–except he can’t stop thinking about her. But with the line between life and death blurred by Felicity’s experiments, can he convince her that she’s no longer alone, and her proper place is by his side?

ENCHANTED AT CHRISTMAS

includes:

Christy Carlyle’s A Love For Lady Winter

Lady Winifred Gissing has a secret: she sees ghosts. With this strange skill, and her odd, ethereal appearance, she knows she’ll never find acceptance among society, let alone love. But when she travels to Castle Keyvnor, she meets her aunt’s godson, Septimus Locke, the Earl of Carwarren. Scientific, rational Septimus stirs an unexpected passion in her, and she finds his experiments in galvanism fascinating. Romance sparks between them, but will his past and her unusual ability destroy their chance at happiness?

Jerrica Knight-Catania’s His Christmas Angel

Ethan Dallimore, Duke of Westbury, would like a little peace in his life. Unfortunately, he has the weight of the world on his shoulders with one demanding sister and one always-underfoot ward. To make matters worse, he arrives at Castle Keyvnor with a debilitating headache that won’t go away. All he wants to do is sleep until it’s gone, but that’s not an option as he’s traveled to the tip of Cornwall to attend a holiday wedding, and even houseguests have their duties. However, Ethan’s desire to sleep is soon replaced with his desire to get to know the mysterious beauty whose mere presence seems to take his pain away.
Miss Angel Quinn doesn’t exactly belong at Castle Keyvnor with all its aristocratic guests, even if she does share a bloodline with some of them. But she knows it’s important to accept the invitation to her long-estranged cousins’ weddings, so she puts on her grown-up bloomers and heads for the castle. But so much more awaits her in the mystical village of Bocka Morrow, and the young witch may soon discover just who she was always meant to be.

Claudia Dain’s Lady Rose & Lord Snow

The Grimstone has come to Castle Keyvnor. His name is Charles Snowingham and he is the Earl of Grimstone. Upon his right hand he wears the Grimstone ring, an ancient ring imbued with, it is said, ancient power to destroy ghosts and ghouls and otherworldly things. Snow is not the sort of man to believe in fairy tales, until he arrives in Castle Keyvnor, that is, and he meets Lady Rose Hambly. * Lady Rose is determined to escape her ancestral home, Castle Keyvor. She’s not about to admit it publicly, but there is a certain ghost at the castle who is haunting her. Since her sisters Morgan and Tamsyn are being wed on Christmas, and since the castle will be awash with eligible men, she is determined to find a husband as quickly as possible, if only to get away from Castle Keyvnor and her impossible ghost. * What Lady Rose and Lord Snow do not realize is that the ghosts of Keyvnor want them away from the castle immediately, if not sooner. The Grimstone ring spells their doom, and Rose’s ghost doesn’t want to haunt her just as fervently as she wishes not to be haunted. Will Rose take romantic advice from a ghost who does nothing but insult her? Not willingly.

KISSED AT CHRISTMAS

Kissed@Christmas

With Stories by

Christina McKnight, Ava Stone  & Michelle Willingham

Publisher’s Description:

The Earl and Countess of Banfield cordially request your attendance at the wedding for their daughters: Lady Tamsyn Hambly to Mr. Gryffyn Cardew, & Lady Morgan Hambly to Harold Mort, Viscount…

KISSED AT CHRISTMAS

includes:

Christina McKnight’s Bound By the Christmastide Moon


Silas Anson has spent his life dealing with other people’s mistakes. Now, as the Earl of Lichfield, he has a plan that will protect his siblings, and give him a chance at a normal life. His arranged marriage to Mallory Hughes should be perfect—except for one thing: she sees visions of the future. When a man determined to free himself from the shackles of the past marries a woman with precognition, happiness in the present may be just a kiss under the Christmastide moon away.

 

Ava Stone’s Once Upon a Midnight Clear


Only a duke will do for Lady Ivy Dallimore. If her unhappily married sisters have taught her anything, it’s that love is fleeting but a title lasts forever, which is all well and good in theory until she finds herself falling for the scandalous third son of a marquess who is bound and determined to make his fortune in trade! Lord Michael Beck courts scandal, living life to the fullest and dabbling in games of chance. Unfortunately, he’s neither heir nor spare to his father’s title, and the time has come to enter a profession. Michael is no soldier, and he certainly isn’t cut out for the cloth, so he embarks on the most scandalous and risky venture of his life. He will need capital, however, and collecting a number of outstanding gambling debts at a Christmas Eve wedding at Castle Keyvnor seems like the perfect place to start, at least until he stumbles across the lady of his dreams. But what are the odds the practiced gambler can win the girl without losing everything he’s worked for?

Michelle Willingham’s The Sweetest Christmas


Lady Marjorie despises the idea of marriage. After being engaged to a man who tried to command every aspect of her life, from what she wore to what she ate, she refuses to consider matrimony again. Though she isn’t at all opposed to playing matchmaker for her cousin… Sir William Crandall is startled when Lady Marjorie believes he is a shy, withdrawn knight in need of a wife. He has nothing at all in common with her bluestocking cousin, but he is fascinated by the spirited Lady Marjorie. Despite her attempts at matchmaking, he intends to avoid marriage at all costs, after being abandoned at the altar. But a stolen kiss, a feast of gingerbread, and two unexpected friends find that there is magic in the Christmas holiday and a match that neither of them expected…

My Thoughts:

These are three well written holiday themed novellas.

Some are better than others.

The last two include the somewhat ghostly theme which occurred in the original Castle Keyvnor stories.

I couldn’t put down the first two and finished them in short order.

I had a harder time with the last one with it’s fewer number, but longer chapters.

I gave this anthology an overall 4.25 of 5.0 star rating with a lower sensual rating since there are only kisses involved of 2.0 of 5.0 flames.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this collection from the publisher via NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Previously published in the anthology Under the Kissing Bough.

The Major is home from the wars at last…

Edmund Sherritt, Major Lord Canforth, has devoted eight tumultuous years to fighting Napoleon. Finally Europe is at peace, and he can retire to his estates and the lovely wife he hasn’t seen since their brief, unhappy honeymoon. The innocent girl he loved from the first moment he saw her, but who shied away from him on their wedding night.

The beautiful woman who greets him at Otway Hall on Christmas Eve is no longer the sweet ingénue he remembers. This new and exciting version of his beloved countess is strong, outspoken, and independent, and she’s willing to stand up for what she wants. The question is—does she want the husband who returns to her arms more as a stranger than a spouse?

Now the real battle begins.

Felicity, Lady Canforth, has had eight long years to regret that she sent her husband from a cold marriage bed to face brutal combat, danger and hardship. The only child of elderly parents, Felicity came to marriage innocent and ignorant, and unable to conceal her shock at the sensual power of the earl’s caresses. Before she found the nerve to offer Canforth a more generous welcome, he was called away to war. The Major left behind a countess who was a bride, not a wife; a woman unsure of her husband’s feelings, and too timid to confess how fervently she desires the man she wed.

Fate has granted an older, wiser Felicity a second chance to win her husband’s heart. Now nothing will stop her from claiming victory over the famous war hero. This Christmas, she’ll deploy every ounce of courage, purpose and passion to seize the life and love she’s longed for, ever since Canforth left to serve his country. Whatever it costs, whatever it takes, she’ll lure the dashing Major back into her bed, where she means to show him he’s the only man she wants as her lover—and her love.

After years of yearning and separation, will a Christmas miracle heal the wounds of the past and offer the earl and his bride a future bright with love?

A forced marriage… A desire that can’t be denied…

To thwart a marriage alliance, Laird Reid Mackenzie kidnaps an English noblewoman en route to her fiancé. But to Reid’s horror, King Robert the Bruce orders that he now marry the bride he stole. With his legitimacy already in question, the last thing Reid needs is an English wife who will enrage his allies and embolden his enemies. Yet despite his opposition to marrying Corinne, her fiery spirit and matching beauty threaten to burn away his resistance and bring him to his knees with desire.

Corinne wants nothing more than to work as a scribe. With her wedding to a cruel fiancé looming, she decides to take matters into her own hands. But just when she initiates a daring escape, she is thrust into the arms of a dark Highland Laird whose stormy gaze leaves her breathless. Though she is desperate for freedom, her resolve begins to crumble under Reid’s heated touch. As she struggles to make a home in the Highlands—and in Reid’s heart—their union pushes the clan to the brink of war, forcing Reid and Corinne to choose between peace and their budding love.

A MASTERPIECE OF HOLIDAY STORYTELLING…

Imagine, if you will, that it is Christmas Eve.

The candles are guttered, one by one, and a hush falls over the grand parlor. The children have gone to bed, and a tall, gloriously decorated Christmas tree looms in the shadows of the hearth’s dying embers. Beside the tree a nutcracker stands guard, its broken jaw cradled in a kerchief tied about its head. All is quiet in this dark, peaceful scene until the long case clock chimes. Dulcet tones form a gentle symphony, and the parlor comes to life.

Now, the magic happens.

Lose yourself in The Nutcracker Reimagined, a collection of eleven Christmas tales based on the most treasured characters from the famous holiday ballet, The Nutcracker. Sugarplum fairies will dance in your head, as armies of mice and legions of dolls do battle, and a wounded nutcracker and his lady fair become the stuff of which legends are made. From Arabian dancers to living flowers and hosts of angels, enjoy these tales as reimagined characters from the beloved Christmas tradition find their own happily ever after.

And as the clock’s chimes signal the approaching sunrise, you’ll awaken from these magical stories to discover it has all been a beautiful dream of a retold Christmas classic.

Cover Designer: Najla Qamber Designs

Preorder: iBooks

“You are a cocky, arrogant asshole and I sincerely wish you misery for the rest of your life…PS–You weren’t *that* damn sexy… “

Those were the last lines I wrote in Jace Kennedy’s yearbook before graduating high school.

Enemies from the moment we met, we went out of our way to avoid each other whenever we could. And in the moments that we couldn’t? Our heated arguments were strong enough to light the world on fire.

He was an all-star prick. Plain and simple.

I was a “band geek with fugly-ass braces.” (Not true at all.)

Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to leave him and our small hometown of Blue Harbor behind.

Now that it’s ten years later, I’ve graduated from Harvard Law at the top of my class, and I’m working at the firm of my dreams. I’m happier than I’ve ever been, surrounded by new loyal friends, and ready to compete for the lead lawyer position.

Until I find out that Jace Kennedy graduated from law school, too.

Until I realize that he’ll be working at the same exact firm, in the office right across from me.

And if that isn’t unfortunate enough, he’s far sexier and way more arrogant than I originally remembered. (Oh, and last night he moved in next door…)

I should’ve never agreed to this arrangement…

Thirty days ago, my boss—Mr. Wolf of Wall Street, came to me with an offer I couldn’t refuse: Sign my name on the dotted line and pretend to be his fiancée for one month. If I agreed, he would let me out of my employment contract with a “very generous” severance package.

The rules were pretty simple: No intimate kissing, no actual sex. Just pretend to love each other for the press, even though I’ve secretly wanted to knock that sexy smirk off his face since the first day we met.

I definitely didn’t need to think twice about this. I signed my name and started counting down the seconds to when I would never have to deal with his special brand of ass-holery again.I only made it to one minute…We argued the entire four-hour flight to his hometown, failed to make a convincing impression with the welcoming press, and right when I was about to knock that arrogant look off his face in real life? He purposely dropped his bath towel in front of me, distracting me with his nine-inch cock to “show me who the bigger person was” in our relationship. Then he gave me his trademark smirk once again and asked if I wanted to consummate our marriage.

Tragically, this is only day one.
We still have 29 more days to go…

Riley Clifton can’t remember a time when she wasn’t a part of the Six, a group of rowdy boys who would do just about anything for her. Growing up alongside of six guys is never easy. Especially in high school. Falling in love with one of the Six? Even harder when Ace has a hold of her heart, and he doesn’t even know it.

When her college plan falls through, and her future is left to the hands of fate, Riley finds herself scrambling to keep up with all the changes. But that’s not the hardest part. The hardest part is saying good-bye, especially to Ace.

Heartache, hard lessons, and a love deeper than her Alabama roots will threaten to crumble Riley’s world as she waits for Ace’s return.

Will Riley and Ace’s love be strong enough to hold them together when life tries to tear them apart?

This is not the way love is supposed to start… is it?

When arriving in Scotland, Aiden Jacobson is ready to take on the task of setting up Cole Enterprise’s newest underground headquarters. But when their most-wanted criminal, Robert de Fleur, goes into hiding, Aiden is placed undercover at a local coffee shop. His mission—gather intel from Brenda Anderson, sister of Robert de Fleur, while posing as a barista at The Grounded Bean.

Coffee shop owner Brenda Anderson needs all the help she can get when it comes to keeping the Bean up and running. Unaware of his ulterior motives, Brenda brings the mysterious and handsome Aiden in with only one thing on her mind… Airen. Maybe her gypsy-souled niece wouldn’t wander quite so far if she had someone like Aiden to keep her grounded.

Thrown together by circumstance, Airen becomes part of Aiden’s mission when Robert de Fleur emerges from hiding, demanding something none of them can give. Knowing Robert won’t stop until he gets what he wants, Aiden is ordered to stick as close as possible to keep an eye on them.

Staying at Brenda’s seems to be the simplest solution… until he wakes up in Airen’s bed.

Making a valiant attempt to shove his growing feelings aside, Aiden forces himself to walk away and protect Airen from afar.

Unfortunately, his plan backfires, and Robert de Fleur uses that weakness to make his move.

Kicking himself for allowing his feelings to get in the way of the mission, Aiden sets out to do what he should have done all along… take out Robert de Fleur once and for all. Can Aiden stick to the mission, or will Airen tear down every defense he puts in place and gain complete entrance to his heart?

When the threat of an enemy stalking them is brought to light, the call is made to bring them into the secretive world of Cole Enterprise.

Slotted for recruitment by the very agency that stole their chance at a normal life, Mark and Paige have to adjust to their new path as secret agents in a war they didn’t even know existed.

Life hasn’t been the same since returning from Barbados. Josh has fallen. Hard. Unable to shake the feelings Ella stirred up in him, he retreats further into himself. He can’t tell her how he feels, because even if he did, it wouldn’t change the fact that she’s married.

Complicated is an understatement for Ella as she works through her own personal hell after finding out her dead husband is, in fact, alive and in hiding again. But life, and work, must go on.

An undercover job on a four-week cruise should be an easy mission for the Cole Enterprise operatives. Unfortunately, the client is one of Ella’s childhood friends, which leaves the pair wishing they’d come up with something other than being engaged as their cover. Playing the part may just hurt them both.

Falling in love is never easy. In fact, it can sometimes be downright painful. No strangers to pain, Josh and Ella find themselves at the crossroads of duty and love. Lines will be blurred. Hearts will be broken. And all that they are will be tested.

Find happiness with the soaring eagle in the Place of the Winds.

Beware the dark sun.

Lady Blythe Devereux has always loved Roger Debrett, the Earl of Eden, Queen Elizabeth’s soaring eagle. Blythe knows with her druid’s instinct that they are meant to be together. And fate will prove her right, if only she can make Roger see the truth.

Fate deals Roger a cruel blow when he’s wrongly accused of murder. In order to secure his freedom so that he can uncover the truth, Roger is forced to marry Blythe, the beloved daughter of one of England’s most powerful and favored men, Richard Devereux, the Earl of Basildon.

With his heart hardened against love, Roger tries to see Blythe as the young girl he’d known years earlier, but her seductive beauty, warmth, and charm, entice him at every turn. And when an unseen killer stalks them through the halls of Hampton Court Palace, Roger must do more than catch a killer. He must protect his heart’s desire.

REVIEWS:

“A great book, set in Elizabethan England. Some magic, some steamy scenes, a mystery, and some laugh out loud moments.” — NetGalley Review

“Once again Patricia Grasso enchants readers with a highly romantic, adventurous and mystical tale. Blythe’s druid practices and her strong faith in Roger and their love shine through on every page along with humor and sensuality. Patrica Grasso is a not-to-missed author.” — Romantic Times Magazine

“MY HEART’S DESIRE has a mystical aura. Conflict is created by internal trauma of the characters and an unknown villain. Tension tightens to the breaking point as the hero tries to keep from falling in under the spell of the heroine. Steadfast love coupled with undying faith are the focal points of the story. A good historical with a touch of mystery.” —  Rendezvous Magazine

Publisher’s Description:

Miss Alice Bursnell is determined to wreak revenge on Nathaniel Eastwood, Viscount Abingdon, for the seduction, ruin, and death of her beloved twin sister. But how to expose a seducer without falling prey herself? As she gets closer to Nathaniel, she finds she is in serious danger of following in her sister’s much-too-tempted footsteps. The man is nothing like the heartless rake she expected…and his kisses are truly divine. Could she be wrong about him?

When a mysterious and gorgeous woman confronts Nathaniel at a fancy ball, he suspects she has murder on her mind—his own. But the more he tries to determine who the deceptively innocent beauty is—and what she’s up to—the deeper he falls under her alluring spell. Nathaniel fears he’s in imminent danger of losing his life…or worse, his heart.

My Thoughts:

This is a well written and surprising debut novel.

Alice has been grief stricken by the death of her twin whom she lost in childbirth. Her sister was unmarried and had been ruined by an unknown gentleman. Alice suddenly is presented with a clue to the man’s identity when she is given her sister’s locket which once contained a miniature of her likeness. That is no longer the case. It now contains a miniature of a man, her sister’s lover and the cause of her death.

Determined to make the man pay, she sets her course to find him. Now, a year later she spies that face across a crowded ballroom.

Nathaniel is a shy and often clumsy gentleman. When a beauty seems to set her sites on him at his friends ball he is in shock. Then she saves his life and he in turn saves certain scaring of her. When he sees the look in her eyes though, he is certain she dislikes him for reasons unknown to him.

This convoluted and often comical tale is a winner.

I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy is quite mild in this story.

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

many awards – Book Seller’s Best Award, The Maggie Award, and The Holt
Medallion Award. Publisher’s Weekly said, “Brenda Jernigan writes Romance,
Adventure and Magic”

She grew up living the life of a tomboy – climbing trees, playing ball, and excluding starry-eyed romance from her daily repertoire. Brenda discovered the love of books while taking her son to Story Hour at the local library — she was hooked. She set an ambitious goal and began work on her first novel. She continued to write six more novels in rapid succession. She figured having the same birthday as Ernest Hemingway couldn’t hurt.

Her books have been printed in several languages and her last book “Southern Seduction” written under the name of Alexandria Scott was printed in Russian.

Publisher’s Description:

The only thing more irresistible than scandal …

Olivia Townsend is in trouble and out of options. Pursued by a dangerous man in search of a lost treasure she doesn’t possess, she’s got only two things in her favor: her late husband’s diary, which she was never meant to see… and the man who was her first—and only—love. Losing him broke her heart, though she’s been careful to hide it for the last ten years. But when he comes to her aid and vows to stand by her, no matter what, she can’t help but hope things will be different for them this time.

Is a second chance at true love

James Weston has blamed himself for letting Olivia down when she needed him years ago, and now he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe—and to win her trust again. He’s confident he can outwit the villain chasing Olivia. But being so near her again threatens to expose every secret in his heart … even those that he swore would stay hidden forever.

Editorial Reviews:

Linden’s sensuous fourth Scandalous Regency (after Love in the Time of Scandal) pairs up an independent heroine and a dependable hero.
 
Olivia Herbert and Jamie Weston meet as young children in Sussex and eventually pledge their love to one another, determined to marry. When Olivia’s father forces her to wed another man for quick financial security, both Jamie and Olivia are devastated.
 
Ten years later, Olivia is alone after the death of her husband, Henry Townsend, and is fleeing evil Viscount Clary, a man who wants her for his mistress and may have been involved in shady dealings with her deceased husband. Jamie steps in to save her from the attentions of the viscount, and their flame rekindles, but Olivia is determined to keep him at arm’s length for fear of being hurt again.
 
With Jamie’s help, Olivia discovers that she is a capable woman who can accomplish a great deal on her own and is even stronger when she and Jamie are together.
 
The gradual awakening of sensuality between Jamie and Olivia is expertly written, and the undercurrent of mystery surrounding Clary’s pursuit of Olivia propels the novel swiftly forward to its stunning conclusion. From Publishers Weekly(March 2016)

“The carefully developed characters, snappy dialogue and well-crafted plot add to the enchantment and enjoyment of the novel.” —RT Book Reviews

Publisher’s Description:

Here’s Scandalous, a box set of Beverly’s first three standalone novels, published originally by Robert Hale but now given a twist with new titles, prologues, epilogues and, generally, a complete overhaul. (I guess that’s the advantage of having five years of reader reviews to mull over.)

Three full-length Regency romances laced with mystery, intrigue and suspense.
A spoiled heiress masquerading as a shipwrecked governess, a widow with a tarnished reputation seeking her lost son, and a debutante pretending to be married… These very different Regency heroines dare everything for love!

 

LADY SARAH’S REDEMPTION

A spoiled heiress who assumes the identity of a shipwrecked governess falls in love with her employer who has dark secrets of his own.

When beautiful and high-spirited Lady Sarah Miles arrives at the grand estate of local Member of Parliament, Roland Hawthorne, to take charge of the widower’s rebellious sixteen-year-old daughter, she forms a strong attachment to the wayward Caro and brooding Roland.

Poles apart in temperament, Sarah and Roland are unexpectedly drawn to one another. While Sarah is as carefree and careless of those less fortunate than herself, her new employer is a hardworking and driven champion of the poor unfortunates sentenced to death for their part in the recent Peterloo uprising.

Roland is determined to resist the beautiful and alluring Sarah. Once a slave to the whims of his exquisite, fiery and faithless late wife, Venetia, he’s looking for marriage to a quiet, docile creature who will curb his daughter’s wayward impulses.

Sarah is determined to prove she’s everything Roland could want in a wife though she’s uncomfortably aware of her shortcomings. She’s passionate and used to getting her way. She’s also hiding a very inconvenient secret.

When Sarah unwittingly plays into the hands of an unexpected adversary who uses Caro as a pawn in a high-stakes game of revenge against Roland, Sarah must not only prove she is every bit as courageous as Roland, but risk everything she holds dear – including her love for her employer – to save Caro and redeem herself.

About Beverley:

Beverley Eikli (aka Oakley) & her Rhodesian Ridgeback, Homer

Beverley was seventeen when she bundled up her first 500+ page romance and sent it to a publisher. Rejection followed swiftly. Drowning one’s heroine on the last page, she was informed, was not in line with the expectations of romance readers.

So Beverley became a journalist.

After a whirlwind romance with a handsome Norwegian bush pilot she met in Botswana, Beverley discovered her “Happy Ever After”, and her first romance was published in 2009.

Since then, she’s written more than fifteen sizzling historical romances laced with mystery and intrigue under the name Beverley Oakley.

She also writes psychological historicals, and Colonial-Africa-set romantic suspense, as Beverley Eikli.

With an inspiring view of a Gothic nineteenth-century insane asylum across the road, Beverley lives north of Melbourne with her gorgeous husband, two lovely daughters and rambunctious Rhodesian Ridgeback, Mombo, named after the Okavango Delta safari lodge where she and her husband met.
