MY REVIEW OF
The Reluctant Duchess
by White, Roseanna M.
Bethany House Publishers
Pub Date 05 Apr 2016
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.
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 Blood Rose Series Box Set
by Caris Roane
Save $5.98! 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.
