Pub Date 19 Sep 2016
$1.99 in E-Book Format
Amazon ~ B&N ~ All Romance
Next in the witty, sexy Winner Takes All Regency series from Emmy winner Kate Noble, author of The Game and the Governess and writer of the wildly popular web series, The Lizzie Bennett Diaries.
Cecilia Goodhue is a schoolteacher with a past, living with her sister and her husband in a tiny English village. Resigned to a quiet life, Cecilia is surprised when she finds out that her young cousin has run off with a man of no means.
Cecilia had once been a teenaged girl who also fell for a young man’s charms—only to be devastated by his betrayal. Determined to not let her cousin meet the same fate, she heads off to London to but is shocked when her investigation leads her right to the front door of the very man who broke her heart: Theo Hudson.
Together, they reluctantly embark on finding her cousin and returning her to her family. During their searching in London, it soon becomes clear that they both remember their short-lived romance differently and perhaps now, years later, they have a fresh chance at love.
I loved this sexy, funny title by Kate Noble. It isn’t a long read, but held my interest. The characters are well developed in this short historical with just enough angst to keep your attention. This was a charming, second-chance romance. Both Cecilia and Theo have misconceptions about their previous elopement and separation. I enjoyed the story very much.The storyline is both poignant and comical.
I would give this book a 4.5 star rating and highly recommend the read. The only drawback is the length of the book as I wished for it not to end.
I was provided a digital ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Nevada Brides Series, #1

It was the worst day of McKenna Jameson’s life. Still reeling after the death of her parents, her uncle shows up with ownership paperwork, confiscating the store right out from under her.
McKenna didn’t know what would become of them. She had four sisters at home and only enough money to last a year. She vows that she’d never marry, but then a handsome stranger, Cole Winters, stops by, proposing they go into business together in faraway Silver, Nevada. McKenna gives it serious thought, since opening a mercantile store in a gold rush town would be a very profitable venture. The only problem is that in 1875, it’s not proper for a woman to travel alone with a man.
When Cole proposes they marry in name only, can she truly trust him? And is it worth the risk of losing her heart?
