(Ladies of the Manor #2)

by Roseanna White

Description:


A Riveting Edwardian Series Set among Britain’s High Society

Lady Rowena Kinnaird may be the heiress to a Highland earldom, but she has never felt good enough–not for her father, not for the man she thought she’d marry, not for God. But after a shocking attack, she’s willing to be forever an outcast if it means escaping Loch Morar.

Brice Myerston, the Duke of Nottingham, has found himself in possession of a rare treasure his enemies are prepared to kill for. While Brice has never been one to shy away from manor-born ladies, the last thing he needs is the distraction of Lady Rowena, who finds herself in a desperate situation. But when Rowena’s father tries to trap Brice into marrying his daughter, Brice makes a surprising decision.

Rowena wanted to escape the Highlands, but she’s reluctant to marry a notorious flirt. And when she learns that Brice is mixed up in questionable business with a stolen treasure, she fears she’s about to end up directly in the path of everything she was trying to avoid.

 

My Thoughts:

This is the first Roseanna White/ Bethany House book I have read. The storyline is a very good one. Devoid of any explicit sex or violence it is a book that you could surely give to a teen reader with no qualms. I highly recommend this clean Christian romance to anyone who likes their romance without explicit scenes of violence and sex.

I gave this book 4.5 stars.

I received a digital ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The Master Of Strathburn

An Engrossing Scottish Historical Full of Twists and Turns

by Amy Rose Bennett

Digital List Price: $5.25

Buy a Kindle copy at Amazon for $2.72

Description:

A sweeping, sexy Highland romance about a wanted Jacobite with a wounded soul, and a spirited Scottish lass on the run.

Robert Grant has returned home to Lochrose Castle in the Highlands to reconcile with his long-estranged father, the Earl of Strathburn. But there is a price on Robert’s head, and his avaricious younger half-brother, Simon, doesn’t want him reclaiming his birthright. And it’s not only Simon and the redcoats that threaten to destroy Robert’s plans after a flame-haired complication of the feminine kind enters the scene…

Jessie Munroe is forced to flee Lochrose Castle after the dissolute Simon Grant tries to coerce her into becoming his mistress. After a fateful encounter with a mysterious and handsome hunter, Robert, in a remote Highland glen, she throws her lot in with the stranger—even though she suspects he is a fugitive. She soon realises that this man is dangerous in an entirely different way to Simon…

Despite their searing attraction, Robert and Jessie struggle to trust each other as they both seek a place to call home. The stakes are high and only one thing is certain: Simon Grant is in pursuit of them both…

My Thoughts:

I really loved this book. It was one of the best I’ve read recently. It engrosses the reader from page one all the way to the end. The characters are well developed and the storyline is a very believable scenario.
I hadn’t read anything previously by this author but will be sure to look for future offers.
I gave this book a 4.75 star rating.

Sutherland’s Secret:

A Highland Pride Novel

by Sharon Cullen

Terror reigns in the aftermath of the Battle of Culloden. As British troops obliterate the last traces of 61739B3dlgL__SX373_BO1,204,203,200_the Jacobite cause, Brice Sutherland, the Earl of Dornach, risks everything to arrange a covert escape route to Canada for his fellow Scots. But when he encounters a dying Englishwoman, hauntingly beautiful though scarred by manacles and unable to speak, Brice’s true courage is put to the test. Nothing but ruin could result from helping her, or worse: falling in love.
 
The pampered daughter of a marquess, Eleanor Hirst was the talk of the London season when she wed the Earl of Glendale. Little did she know that his posting as an officer in Scotland would be their undoing. Now her husband is dead and Eleanor is a fugitive in a hostile country.
