A MAN OF SIN
Devastatingly handsome. Vain. Unscrupulous. Valentine Napier, the Duke of Montgomery, is the man London whispers about in boudoirs and back alleys. A notorious rake and blackmailer, Montgomery has returned from exile, intent on seeking revenge on those who have wronged him. But what he finds in his own bedroom may lay waste to all his plans.
A WOMAN OF HONOR
Born a bastard, housekeeper Bridget Crumb is clever, bold, and fiercely loyal. When her aristocratic mother becomes the target of extortion, Bridget joins the Duke of Montgomery’s household to search for the incriminating evidence-and uncovers something far more dangerous.
A SECRET THAT THREATENS TO DESTROY THEM BOTHAstonished by the deceptively prim-and surprisingly witty-domestic spy in his chambers, Montgomery is intrigued. And try as she might, Bridget can’t resist the slyly charming duke. Now as the two begin their treacherous game of cat and mouse, they soon realize that they both have secrets-and neither may be as nefarious-or as innocent-as they appear . . .
Although this book is a little graphic for my tastes it is very well written and keeps the reader totally engaged. I found myself feeling quite sorry for the bad boy hero as it was not ultimately his fault he was the way he was. You must read it for yourself to decide if you feel this way too.
Our heroine is the bastard daughter of a lady and a footman who was raised by a farmer and his wife. Is she an innocent in this? I’m not one to give away the whole story, so read it. It is well worth your time. I gave this book a 4.5 star rating. It would have been a 5 for me if it had been a little less graphic.
I received a digital ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

by Caris Roane
Save nearly $4.00! New York Times bestselling author Caris Roane presents BLOOD ROSE BOX SET: BOOKS 1-2-3, a set that combines the first three books of the Blood Rose Series. Each book is a standalone with no cliffhangers.
Darkly sensual Mastyr Vampires battle an ancient foe while beautiful human, fae and shifter women are caught unwillingly by the Blood Rose phenomenon. Can love invade their lives while a nightmare rages?
Book 1 – EMBRACE THE DARK:
Enter a world of blood-starved mastyr vampires and the rare women who can satisfy their deepest needs… Gerrod, mastyr vampire of Merhaine Realm, never thought to have his blood-needs satisfied by a mere human. But Abigail is no ordinary woman. She stuns him with her telepathy as well as the richness of her blood. However, her human DNA makes her an unacceptable mate. Yet how can Gerrod turn her away when she alone has satisfied his blood-starvation for the first time in a hundred-and-fifty-years?
Book 2 – EMBRACE THE MAGIC:
When a blood rose enters Mastyr Ethan’s world, will he succumb to his wildest needs or lose her forever to an enemy intent on possessing her at all costs? Ethan, mastyr vampire of Bergisson Realm, never thought to find his blood rose, the one woman who could ease the blood-starvation he’s endured for decades. But Samantha carries a surprising level of power as her newly discovered fae heritage emerges. As desire rises, and Ethan finds himself drawn into the web of his driving, relentless need for Samantha, will he be able to embrace his blood rose or will his guilt over the past prevent him from living life to the fullest?
Book 3 – EMBRACE THE MYSTERY:
Mastyr Quinlan pursues the artist, Batya, with only one thing in mind, yet discovers that his desire for her is just the beginning of an earth-shattering affair… Quinlan must keep Grochaire Realm safe from the enemy at all costs. As ruler of his realm, a woman has no permanent place in his day-to-day existence. But when his lust takes him to Batya’s bedroom, he soon discovers he’s deep into a powerful experience that threatens to blow his life apart. And as an ancient fae attacks Batya’s gallery, he launches into protector mode and quickly finds himself embroiled — body, soul, and fangs — with a woman he’d only meant to bed a couple of times.

Laird Niall MacIan needs Lady Katherine Ruthven’s dowry to relieve his clan’s crushing debt but he has no intention of giving her his heart in the bargain.
Niall MacIan, a Highland laird, desperately needs funds to save his impoverished clan. Lady Katherine Ruthven, a lowland heiress, is rumored to be “unmarriageable” and her uncle hopes to be granted her title and lands when the king sends her to a convent. King David II anxious to strengthen his alliances sees a solution that will give Ruthven the title he wants, and MacIan the money he needs. Laird MacIan will receive Lady Katherine’s hand along with her substantial dowry and her uncle will receive her lands and title.
Lady Katherine must forfeit everything in exchange for a husband who does not want to be married and believes all women to be self-centered and deceitful. Can the lovely and gentle Katherine mend his heart and build a life with him or will he allow the treachery of others to destroy them?
Highland Solution is a romance about a married couple and thus contains several mildly explicit love scenes, as one might expect to occur in married life. If you want more steam than that, you might be disappointed. If you prefer to stay out of the bedroom this title is available in an Inspirational version.
