Publisher’s Description:

Llynmore Castle is the only place Annabel Lockhart has ever considered home. For years, she’s been able to live as she wished, freely roaming the wild moors. Now there’s a new earl, as arrogant as he is handsome, and he wants her out. But if he thinks she’ll go quietly, he’s in for a surprise.

Theo Townsend returned from war a changed man. After unexpectedly inheriting an earldom and a secluded castle in the Scottish Highlands to go with it, he thinks he’s found the perfect place to hide from the world—until he arrives to find a spirited, beautiful woman already in residence. He can’t just throw her out, but surely there’s a way to get her to leave on her own. The sooner she’s gone, the better, especially when he realizes there’s more than just mutual dislike between them.

My Thoughts:

This is my first time reading this author’s work and the first book in a new series.
There were parts of this book I totally enjoyed and other parts that made me want to pull my hair out.
The hero and heroine both have moments when I could have just grabbed and shaken them.

They start out simply not liking each other and trying to drive each other away. Come on who threatens to toss out an otherwise homeless person along with her homeless relatives.
And what lady actually thinks to scare away the gentleman who is now the owner of the roof over her head so she can again claim the holding as her own?

How could Theo or Annabel possibly want to stay in this ramshackle castle that is nearly falling down around their ears?

This book has such an inauspicious beginning and it makes you almost sure it will have a bad ending for these two adversaries.

You will need to decide for yourself how you think this story will end.

I gave this book 3.75 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3 of 5 flames.
I was provided a complimentary digital copy of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I have voluntarily reviewed.

Dance With Me At Midnight

Regency Fairy Twists Book 3

Digital Edition $0.99 at Amazon

Publisher’s Description:dance

Eloise has done her best to play the dutiful stepdaughter, taking on the work of her departed mother and running the household and looking after her useless stepbrothers. However, when her stepfather announces she’ll be married before summer–to a man she’s never met–she’s determined to fight it. 

Of course, in between battling her stepfather’s plans, Eloise has other things to keep her busy. Planning for the spring ball and looking after her ever-growing animal sanctuary. With the help of Bennett, the stablehand, she has nursed and raised everything from a baby owl to a rather naughty parrot. Much to her stepfather’s disgust. 
Charles, the newly minted Earl of Marlton, always knew he’d be married within months of inheriting the title. Having returned home from his studies in France, he was prepared to be the dutiful heir and take on everything that being an earl entailed–including marrying a wealthy, attractive, well-bred woman. Lord Fairfax has promised his stepdaughter was just that. He’s fully prepared to wed the woman he’s never met by summer.
Until he meets her that is. 
Eloise is nothing like the poised, elegant and controlled woman he thought she’d be. Beautiful, yes, even with a damned parrot sitting on her shoulder, but hardly marchioness material. However, her wealth and connections, and his commitment to spend time with her family ensures he must stay. And perhaps he could consider himself a little intrigued by her. Unfortunately for Charles, he cannot seem to get close enough to her to find out more, especially when she keeps running off with the stablehand. 

Can he persuade her he’s more than a stuffy lord, interested in only her wealth? And does he really want to compete with a stablehand and a menagerie of animals? All he knows is the more time he spends with her, the more he’s convinced it might well be worth it.Dance With Me At Midnight is a 25,000 word sweet, clean novella.

But then he discovers he is the one man Amicia needs more than she can imagine, for only he can protect her from their king’s game.

World Book and Copyright Day 2017

is This Sunday, April 23

Join us in celebrating reading!

World Book and Copyright Day (also known as International Day of the Book or World Book Day) is observed on April 23, 2017. The annually celebrated day is organized by UNESCO to promote reading, publishing and copyright. It was first celebrated in 1995.
The connection between 23 April and books was first made in 1923 by booksellers in Spain as a way to honor the author Miguel de Cervantes who died on that day. Nowadays the World Book and Copyright Day is observed in over 100 countries, where schools, private businesses, voluntary organizations and lots of more people and groups come together to pay a tribute to authors and books.
In 1995, UNESCO decided that on this date the World Book and Copyright Day should be celebrated because of the Catalonian festival and because the date is also the anniversary of the birth and death of William Shakespeare and some other authors.
Copyright is a legal concept, enacted by most governments, giving the creator of an original work exclusive rights to it, usually for a limited time. It is “the right to copy”, but also gives the copyright holder the right to be credited for the work and other, related rights. It is an intellectual property form. The text “World Book and Copyright Day” has been taken from www.cute-calendar.com
