MY NEW RELEASE REVIEW of

The Disappearance of Lady Edith

5f15a53a-7d54-41b5-8786-d5278c275318

The Undaunted Debutantes #1

by Christina McKnight

Publisher’s Description:

One tragic night changed sensible, proper Lady Edith Pelton’s life: when her best friend fell to her death, pushed down a flight of stairs by a nefarious lord. Now, Edith dedicates her time watching the man she thinks is responsible, while gathering other information to expose other scoundrels posing as gentlemen of honor about London. But when her spying is noticed by a perfect stranger, Edith finds herself with two mysteries—what happened to her friend, and how to win the heart of a brilliantly handsome lord.

Triston Neville, Viscount Torrington, has been tasked with two duties for the upcoming Season: see that his sisters make the most of their debut, and avoid embroiling himself in another scandal. What he does not expect is the captivating, fair-haired beauty that literally falls into his path. When the mysterious Lady Edith suddenly disappears without a trace, Triston fears his past misdeeds may have returned to destroy his life once more.

Can Triston piece together the puzzle in time to save Edith and prove that his love is nothing less than honorable?

My Thoughts:

What a first meeting!

Edith is up a tree. Of course that is the best place to be for spying on the man she thinks responsible for her friend’s death.
How was she to know a complete stranger would catch her spying and cause her to tumble from the tree branches and end up with her skirts over her head and her knickers the first thing the stranger sees.

Tristan no longer lives in his father’s house. He has been banished after his father marries the woman Tristan was in love with. He is just leaving his father’s house when he spies a woman perched in a tree on his father’s property. He startles her and she takes a tumble out of the tree and almost into his arms.

This book is another winner from Christina McKnight. It has it’s decidedly comical moments as well as a but of mystery, danger and intrigue.

It is a relatively quick read with dangerous moments and a little bit of newly found love thrown in for good measure.

I gave this book 4.25 of 5 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 2.5 of 5 flames.

I received a complimentary digital copy of this title from the publisher via NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Introducing Chills, the first installment of the Distinguished Rogues series. Bestselling regency romance author, Heather Boyd, brings readers a lively tale of reckless spending, fraudulent correspondence, and the humorous twists and turns of falling for the right rogue…

London, 1813

Jack, Marquess of Ettington, is at his wits’ end dealing with his twin sister’s distress. Under her name, he’s summoned Constance Grange, his vexing former ward, to London to act as his sister’s companion for the season. Although Pixie’s debt-ridden state comes as a complete surprise, what disturbs him more is his sister’s plan to find her a wealthy husband to pay off her overwhelming debts. And—despite his availability, wealth and title—he’s shocked to be overlooked for the position of Pixie’s husband.

With a nickname like Pixie, Constance Grange should be used to disasters, but debt collectors pounding on the Marquess of Ettington’s door demanding payment is beyond mortifying. Given the precarious state of her finances and the previously unknown loss of her family estate, her choices are either incarceration in debtors’ prison or turning fortune hunter to secure a wealthy husband. Yet the man who comes to her rescue more times than she cares to think about is unavailable, betrothed, and her former guardian Jack—the cold-hearted marquess.

Hart’s Desire:

An independent young lady meets a bold merchant captain pursued by a band of Caribbean pirates…what could possibly go wrong?

After a daring escape, Captain Landon Hart sails the Desire to Charleston for repairs and to keep a mysterious appointment with a plantation owner. He meets a sword-wielding, fiery-haired tempest on the way, and he isn’t prepared for the impact she has on his tightly guarded heart…nor the trouble she manages to attract.

Keelan Grey had a solid plan that would save her from an arranged marriage to a cruel plantation owner until a deathbed confession from a loved one plunges her into a dark plot of deception and revenge.

Desperate for help, Keelan finds an unlikely ally in the exasperating but irresistible sea captain. But while she trusts him with her life, can she trust him with her secrets?

Hart’s Desire is set just prior to the War of 1812, when privateers sailed the seas looking for enemy merchant ships to plunder. Hart’s Desire is a story about a young woman from England, who’s suddenly thrust into plantation life as the daughter of the plantation owner. The book is rich with fascinating insights into the Low Country of Charleston, the food, the medicines and the lifestyles of the people of that time. Keelan is a very independent woman who is determined to avoid a marriage of convenience. Landon and his business partner dock their ships in the Charleston harbor for repairs. Weeks earlier the merchant fleet owner, Landon’s mentor, set up a mysterious appointment with George Grey of Twin Pines plantation-Keelan’s father. It is this meeting which forces Landon and Keelan’s paths to cross.

Keelan has been well-tutored by her father’s valet, and not only can she read, write and keep the accounts for the plantation, but she can also fence and defend herself with a dagger. Romance readers will love this spunky heroine and the scoundrel who can’t help but fall in love with her.

Hart’s Passion:
A Pirate King and a risky disguise…

Landon and Keelan’s adventure continues in Hart’s Passion.

Captain Landon Hart’s plan to elope with Keelan immediately goes awry when she’s kidnapped by pirates. As usual, the red-haired vixen ends up neck deep in trouble, and it’s not long before she has the pirate captain demanding her head. When they target Landon’s merchant fleet, the only way to keep her safe is to send her away, then lure the pirates into a final confrontation.

Lord Victor Mayhew, Viscount Norcross, lives in the shadows, hiding his scarred face from51-tKxlDamL those who would fear him… or worse, pity him. He’s become accustomed to the dark, and to the aching loneliness that is his only and constant companion.

Can she convince him to trust her, to believe that she can see beyond the scars he bears to the man he is? Or will he push her away out of fear and retreat into the loneliness that he knows so well?
