Connected by a Kiss Book 2

by Amanda Mariel

$0.99 at Amazon

A misunderstanding that wounds the bonds of friendship leads a lady to find the love of her life.

Lady Natalie’s betrothal is ended and frees her to pursue the man of her dreams. During a holiday party she discovers the lord she desires in attendance. So hatches a plan to snare him.

Lord Christian St. Vella the Marquis of Knightly has no desire to marry. The more Lady Natalie chases the more irritated he becomes. As the party progresses he cannot help but see past her shallow exterior and recognizes a lady he could fall for.
Will they come together to share a unforgettable Christmastide.

This novella is a companion novella in a special double release! The fabulous Christina McKnight is releasing her novella, A Kiss at Christmastide. What’s so fun is our heroines have a history together. Lady Natalie (How To Kiss A Rogue, my story) and Lady Pippa (A Kiss At Christmastide, Christina’s story) were friends…but some nasty stuff went down and now they are enemies! You’ll have to read both stories to find out why!

I have not read this book  however I have read Christina McKnight’s contribution to this duo. Below you will find my review of the companion novella to this one.


A RE-CAP of MY REVIEW

A Kiss at Christmastide

51yrbunfijl

Connected By A Kiss Book 1

by Christina McKnight

Publisher’s Description:

Lady Pippa Godfrey has suffered the most ruinous London Season. She escapes to her Somerset estate for a quiet Christmastide holiday with her family, away from society’s prying eyes. But before her parents can join her, a storm crashes down on Somerset to destroy any hope of Pippa’s white Christmas dream. The roads have flooded and travel is impossible, leaving her stranded and alone. But a muddied, angry and devilishly handsome lord appears at her door demanding shelter.

Lucas Hartfeld, the Earl of Maddox, has been summoned by his parents, the Marquis and Marchioness of Bowmont, to attend a holiday party in the wilds of the country, far from his London townhouse. He suspects they command his attendance for far different reasons than a simple country party. When a storm strands his carriage, he’s forced to seek shelter at the only home for miles around, a local manor called Helton House.

When Lady Pippa is reluctant to admit him, he does what he’s been raised to do—demand she provide him and his servants with shelter until the storm passes. But the beautiful woman draws his interest far more than he’s willing to admit. Can Lucas find a way out of the predicament his parents are planning?

As Lady Pippa scrutinizes another arrogant, demanding lord, she is bombarded with memories of betrayals in her past. Can she forget those difficult life lessons to claim a Christmastide kiss from a perfect stranger?

My Thoughts:

Who doesn’t believe in a little Christmas magic and this story depends on just that to make it possible.
This reader loves a good Christmas storyline and this is just that. The characters are well developed and the storyline is what we have come to expect from this author, an excellent HEA, with unforgettable characters that make you want more.
I would give this book a 4.25 star rating and look forward to the next installment in the series.
I received a digital ARC of this book compliments of the publisher and author in exchange for an honest review.

Publisher’s Description:

51rybzqncjl-_aa300_Trapped in a little country town for twenty-six years, Iphiginia Bright lost no time in closing down her academy for young ladies to set off on a life of grand adventure. But after touring the classical ruins of Italy and Greece she returned to England to discover that the real excitement was there at home. Her aunt Zoe has fallen victim to a sinister blackmailer and only Iphiginia can hope to stop the culprit before her can do more harm. Her plan is inspired: Imitating history’s most legendary beauties – Cleopatra, Helen of Troy, Aphrodite – the former schoolmistress will remake herself from head to toe and descend upon London society as the dazzling mistress of one of the town’s most powerful men, Marcus Valerius Cloud, the infamous Earl of Masters.

He is everything they say he is – arrogant, attractive, devastatingly seductive – and Iphiginia can?t help but be enthralled. But when Marcus agrees to play along with her charade, she doesn’t know that the determined earl has plans of his own: to tease and tempt her, until the beautiful deceiver becomes more than his mistress in name only.

Publisher’s Description:

Imogen Waterstone has always prided herself on being a thoroughly independent young woman, 41b5cmx2fil-_aa300_but now she needs a man of implacable will and nerves of iron. That’s why she invited Matthias Marshall, infamous Earl of Colchester, to her home in Upper Strickland. Who better than the legendary explorer to help her lay the perfect trap?

Her scheme is simple, really: She plans to let it be known that when she inherited her uncle’s collection of antiquities, she also inherited a map to a fabulous ancient treasure. She’s sure that her enemy would risk financial ruin in pursuit of the mythical artifact. And to make doubly sure the scoundrel took the bait, she wants Colchester to pretend that he’s out to seduce Imogene so that he, too, could get his hands on her map.

Yet in all of her plotting, Imogene never anticipates Colchester’s violent reaction to her request or her own electrifying reaction to him. Neither does she expect that a malevolent threat would emerge from the labyrinth of London–sinister enough to endanger her and Colchester’s lives.

51r3xdgu0wlCan a mission to find the missing bastard children of the new prince regent lead to the destruction of the happiness enjoyed by a lowly intelligence officer and his beloved Loyalty?

Loyalty is eighteen years old and happy with her life, although a wine-colored birthmark stretches across half of her face. She has everything she could want in life, food, a roof over her head, a steady job, and the love of her life. They are not rich, waiting to marry until their finances are in better shape, but she has hope that it will not be in the distant future.

Her love has just returned home for shore leave, and is given a secret mission that threatens to change their lives forever. When he’s tasked with finding the prince regent’s bastard children, she never dreams that someone she knows better than anyone will be one of them. The information that could save the lives of her best friend, and could mean life eternal with her beloved, is just a breath away.

Nathan didn’t want that for Loyalty. He didn’t want her or their life to change. If she was a princess, really and truly, his chances of happily ever after were slipping away.

However, he had a duty before his love, and that was to the throne. His heart was breaking with every step that they took toward the king’s bedchamber.

He wouldn’t be able to marry her; they wouldn’t have children. They wouldn’t have the life they dreamed of together.

She would always be in danger. A princess with such a birthmark would always be threatened. She would never be considered beautiful; they would never see what he saw in her. They would never see her as anything but a broken princess.

He couldn’t let Jerrico tell her; he couldn’t.

Midshipman Nathan Rambles is on the fast track to success in His Majesty’s armed forces, an honor that he’s worked hard to deserve so early in life. In order to marry his beautiful lover, he must be able to provide for her, but he wonders whether she will accept his future in the military. Above all else, his duty is to the king and the royal family, though, even if it means sacrificing their plans of love and happiness.

He is given the secret mission of a lifetime, an opportunity for immediate promotion beyond his wildest dreams, but in the process he learns that Loyalty, his beautiful intended bride, is more than they’d ever believed possible. Her biological father is finally discovered, something she has long dreamed of achieving, and it is through the legwork of a King’s Guard that they discover her true home. The Royal Palace awaits the Secret Princess.

Will Loyalty be able to have the man of her dreams?

Can Nathan find the missing heirs and marry the woman he loves?
