However, with the Anglesea family jockeying for a more advantageous position, Roger must marry judiciously.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Born British and raised in South Africa, Sarah Hegger suffers from an incurable case of thy2wz34xtwanderlust. Her match? A hot Canadian engineer, whose marriage proposal she accepted six short weeks after they first met. Together they’ve made homes in seven different cities across three different continents (and back again once or twice). If only it made her multilingual, but the best she can manage is idiosyncratic English, fluent Afrikaans, conversant Russian, pigeon Portuguese, even worse Zulu and enough French to get herself into trouble.

Mimicking her globe trotting adventures, Sarah’s career path began as a gainfully employed actress, drifted into public relations, settled a moment in advertising, and eventually took root in the fertile soil of her first love, writing. She also moonlights as a wife and mother.

She currently lives in Colorado with her teenage daughters, two Golden Retrievers and aforementioned husband. Part footloose buccaneer, part quixotic observer of life, Sarah’s restless heart is most content when reading or writing books.

Sarah is the recipient of the 2015 EPIC Award for Historical Romance.

She is represented my Nalini Akolekar of Spencerhill Associates.

MY THOUGHT’S:

This is book #4 of this series but the first one I have read. It is also the first book I have ever read by this author but I hope to read more in the future. I really enjoyed reading this humorous and heartwarming tale. Although it was not an uncommon practice in the times which this story is situated, I did found Kathryn’s father’s abusive nature to be rather alarming. The routine beatings suffered by both Kathryn and her mother at the hands of a man who I felt should have been nurturing made me want to strangle said abuser.

Overall I found the storyline and characters to be well developed and engaging. Reading this book made me wish I had read previous offerings by this author.

I gave this book a 4.5four-half-stars-for-brent-weeks star rating for characterization and storyline and 

3 flame-torch-md flame-torch-md flame-torch-mdout of 5 for heat.

I would most assuredly look for future offerings by this author.

If you like your historical romance with more humor than torrid love scenes then be sure to grab yourself a copy of Roger’s Bride.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the author and publisher to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion.

51grhquzwwlShe shouldn’t be here… She can’t even recall how she got here.

Except for the dream. Mya Boyle remembers the dream. She knows it’s somehow connected to her past, her present and the future.

Mya woke one morning in a field, a stag grazing close by as if it didn’t even notice her. She lay bare, like a babe from the womb, except for a wool blanket wrapped around her tightly.

A grown woman with no memory, no family, no money, nothing. Kayden McGregor found her while hunting. He was after the stag and nearly shot her with his arrow instead. Unable to leave her to the wolves of his clan, he took her to his home.

He resents her. She can’t bare to look at him. Or stop herself from staring when he doesn’t notice. Trapped, and yet somehow destined to be together.

Remember enough of the past… You may be able to control your future.

*Previously published in Thwarting the Duke (When the Duke Comes to Town, Book 2)*

Lady Emmaline Radcliffe always knew she never wanted to marry a man who embraced the51bevre5bzl rules of Society. But when her mother threatens to secure a suitable match for Emma if she cannot make one on her own, Emma sets out to determine if her girlhood infatuation is the love she’s been looking for. Nathaniel did save her life once, after all. But when she finds herself in the arms of the gentleman’s brother—the serious and proper Duke of Blackbourne—she begins to question all she ever thought she desired.

Lucian, the Duke of Blackbourne, is tired of playing keeper to his irresponsible brother. He vows to quit, but when his brother resolves to seduce the impetuous Lady Emmaline, Lucian knows he must save his foolish brother and the innocent debutante from themselves. Yet his plan to intercede goes awry when he finds himself drawn to the woman who is everything he was positive he didn’t want in a wife.

But his brother won’t give up so easily, and soon Lucian’s well-intentioned plans are revealed. Now to keep Lady Emmaline’s heart he must prove that he’s truly not the stuffy, sneaky duke he seems to be.


Christmas in the Scot’s Arms

Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts Book 3

by Julie Johnstone

Release Date: November 28, 2016

Available for  Pre-Order Now For $0.99 at Amazon

PUBLISHER’S DESCRIPTION:

London, 1815

51a4pxerxmlLaird Liam MacLeod is not lacking for lasses that wish to marry him. As chief of one of the few remaining stable and wealthy clans in the Highlands, the scheming misses are more than plentiful—too plentiful, in fact, for a man who desires to marry for love. Given the opportunity to escape to London for the holidays, Liam takes it with a halfhearted expectation that perhaps English ladies will be different. But the calculating debutantes of the ton and their marriage-minded mamas leave him with little hope, until a chance encounter brings him face-to-face with a beautiful, witty lady who knows nothing about him.

Miss Cecelia Cartwright has an unfairly tattered reputation and the distasteful yet pressing need for a marriage of convenience. She’d frankly rather eat dirt, but when one’s family is on the verge of poverty, pride must fall by the wayside. But the day a handsome, honorable Scot comes to her aid, he awakens longings in Cecelia that she knows she cannot pursue.

Torn between her heart and her duty, Cecelia finds herself dancing at the very edge of impropriety that once before destroyed her good name. When her old suitor returns to Town, she must choose between the laird she loves and the duke who could save her family. Just when she thinks she knows what she ought to do, Liam reveals a secret that may well prove charming Scots are the most dangerous rogues of them all.
