Publisher’s Description:

Losing a bet has never been more exciting…

Lady Anne Lindsey lost a bet!

Oh… how she wishes it were of the monetary variety…
Instead, she has to do a favor that will take her far from London, out in the country, and into the house of a man she loathes just as much as she is desperately attracted to him.

Guy’s the first man who’d been able to banish the darkness that haunts her, but she knows that a rogue can’t be trusted.

Guy Elkin is the new Viscount of Yapperts.

He has a desire:recruit for help.
To transform the tired looking country house into something just as breathtaking as his clubs back in London, and he knows just the woman to

Lady Anne Lindsey.

He has plans for beautiful Lady Lindsey that go beyond picking curtains and couches, and is sure he’ll have her bedded in weeks…
But what Guy didn’t know was he’d also have her wedded!

When a slip of the tongue finds these two facing the priest, it’ll take more than attraction for them to find their happily ever after.
And can Anne truly escape the dark secret that follows her?

My Thoughts:

I have enjoyed each one of the titles I have read of this series. It is a pleasure to read well written romance without the constant sexual scenes.
Although I do read and review books that are essentially heated it is a nice break to read a book that reminds me of romance novels I read more than twenty years ago. This is a passionate read without all of the vulgarity and the beautiful cover art for this book certainly draws the potential buyer to it.
The characters in this book are well developed and the storyline is very believable. This author’s books would prove to the masses that it isn’t necessary to use profanity and vulgarity to write a good book.
I gave this book 4.25 stars of 5 for storyline and characterization and 2 of 5 flames for heat. Our hero and heroine do have a feisty relationship and there are moments that hint at passion but no actual sexual scenes
Thank you again Ms. Meyers for writing very good sweet/clean regency romance.

Rules for a Rogue

Romancing the Rules

by Christy Carlyle

Digital Price Currently $0.99 at:

Amazon ~ B&N ~ Google ~ iBooks ~ Kobo

Publisher’s Description:

51z59a68mlKit Ruthven’s Rules (for Rogues)

#1 Love freely but guard your heart, no matter how tempting the invader.

#2 Embrace temptation, indulge your sensual impulses, and never apologize.

#3 Scorn rules and do as you please. You are a rogue, after all.

Rules never brought anything but misery to Christopher “Kit” Ruthven. After rebelling against his controlling father and leaving the family’s etiquette empire behind, Kit has been breaking every one imaginable for the past four years. He’s enjoyed London’s sensual pleasures, but he’s failed to achieve the success he craves as London’s premier playwright. When his father dies, Kit returns to the countryside and is forced back into the life he never wanted. Worse, he must face Ophelia Marsden, the woman he left behind years before.

After losing her father, Ophelia has learned to rely on herself. To maintain the family home and support her younger sister, she tutors young girls in deportment and decorum. But her pupils would be scandalized if they knew she was also the author of a guidebook encouraging ladies to embrace their independence.

As Kit rediscovers the life, and the woman, he left behind, Ophelia must choose between the practicalities she never truly believed in, or the love she’s never been able to extinguish.



A Betrayal of Time

by Lucia Ashta

Digital List Price: $2.99

FREE For a Limited Time at Amazon

Publisher’s Description:

51glyz1dedlA Betrayal of Time is a story about Vivienne and Ray, who loved each other even before they knew what love was. They belonged together. They knew it, and everyone who knew them knew it.

But time didn’t. Or maybe time just didn’t care.

It ripped them apart.

Vivienne was left alone, without the one thing — the one person — she needed.

Worse, she was the sole survivor of an unexplained cosmic event that folded time, transporting her 20 years into the future, when she was supposed to be long dead along with everyone else the event claimed. She didn’t know anything about time, except that it was her great betrayer. Still, no one else knew how to reunite her with Ray or with 1959. It was up to her to decipher the quandary no one had been able to resolve before: to bring predictability to the time space continuum, the one thing that could not be more unpredictable.

Note: This is a novella.

Matchmaker Mysteries Book 1

by Elise Sax

Digital List Price: $0.99

FREE For a Limited Time at:

Amazon ~ B&N ~ iBooks ~ Kobo

Publisher’s Description:
Three months has been Gladie Burger’s limit when it comes to staying in one place. That’s why 41jlcipu77lGladie is more than a little skeptical when her Grandma Zelda—who is more than a little psychic– recruits her into the family’s matchmaking business in the quaint small town of Cannes, California. What’s more, Gladie is also highly unqualified, having a terrible track record with romance. Still, Zelda is convinced that her granddaughter has her clairvoyant “gift.” But when the going gets tough, Gladie wonders if this gift has a return policy.
*
When Zelda’s neighbor drops dead in his kitchen, Gladie is swept into his bizarre family’s drama. Despite warnings from the (distractingly gorgeous) chief of police to steer clear of his investigation, Gladie is out to prove that her neighbor’s death was murder. It’s not too long before she’s in way over her head—with the hunky police chief, a dysfunctional family full of possible killers, and yet another mysterious and handsome man, whose attentions she’s unable to ignore. Gladie is clearly being pursued—either by true love or by a murderer. Who will catch her first?

“Fans of laugh-out-loud romantic suspense will enjoy this new author as she joins the ranks of Janet Evanovich, Katie MacAllister, and Jennifer Crusie.”—Booklist, on An Affair to Dismember
