My Review For:

Highland Spring:

438047564

My Thoughts:

I really liked this first book in Elizabeth Rose’s new series. Since I had just read another of her books that I found not to my taste and I did not care for the cover art of this one I was very skeptical about this read.
I was pleasantly surprised.

Spring has been raised as a warrior and can’t see herself as the wife of any man, much less her enemy. How can she be a wife and mother when she has no idea what is expected.
Shaw Gordon is the laird of his clan and a widowed father of three children, two boys and a precocious younger daughter.

When the children meet Spring the eldest son is intimidated by her warrior’s skills and takes an instant dislike for her. The other two children, however are totally enamored by her skills and attach themselves to her hip.

Will Spring betray her new husband or will she find herself so in love that she can’t possibly do the bidding of the man who she has thought to be her father for most of her life?

I gave this book 4.25 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5 flames.

I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the author’s publicist to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I have read and reviewed voluntarily.


Summer’s Reign:

795605758

My Thoughts:

What starts out as a serious story of an abused bride turns into a delightful mixture of mystery and love with a decidedly comical nature.

Summer chose to marry the baron in the place of another. After all he only wanted a bride to give him sons. After three unsuccessful pregnancies, she has given birth to a stillborn son.

The cruel man states she is to report to his chambers the same night after giving birth to submit to him once again in an effort to again conceive. Summer falls asleep and fails to appear until the next morning. When she goes in search of her young son who had been taken from her by the baron after she gave birth to the stillborn babe she finds her husband dead. He is thought to have died in his sleep until the arrival of his nephew who suspects foul play.

Sir Warren is the baron’s nephew who has been assigned the duty of being Summer’s guardian by the king. He doesn’t immediately suspect that his uncle’s death is not just what it seems, but he soon begins to think otherwise.

Can Warren and Summer get past this inauspicious beginning and find love?

This story takes a comical turn when Warren begins to desire Summer and due to stress and a lack of sleep acts on his desire by sleepwalking.
Summer constantly finds him in her room and in her bed. Although nothing untoward happens she decides to make him think otherwise by planting a story of love making in the mind of Warren’s manservant.

This is a story filled with mystery and the search for a murderer but still has a comical nature.

I liked this book more than I did book #1, Spring’s story, Highland Spring.

Both are well written but to me this one was more compelling.

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

Most of the scenes that could have been really heated turned comical because of our hero’s habit of sleepwalking.

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

Publisher’s Description:

Imagine, if you will, that it is Christmas Eve…

The candles are guttered, one by one, and a hush falls over the grand parlor. The children have gone to bed, and a tall, gloriously decorated Christmas tree looms in the shadows of the hearth’s dying embers. Beside the tree a nutcracker stands guard, its broken jaw cradled in a kerchief tied about its head. All is quiet in this dark, peaceful scene until the long case clock chimes. Dulcet tones form a gentle symphony, and the parlor comes to life.

Now, the magic happens.

Lose yourself in The Nutcracker Reimagined, a collection of eleven Christmas tales based on the most treasured characters from the famous holiday ballet, The Nutcracker. Sugarplum fairies will dance in your head, as armies of mice and legions of dolls do battle, and a wounded nutcracker and his lady fair become the stuff of which legends are made. From Arabian dancers to living flowers and hosts of angels, enjoy these tales as reimagined characters from the beloved Christmas tradition find their own happily ever after.

And as the clock’s chimes signal the approaching sunrise, you’ll awaken from these magical stories to discover it has all been a beautiful dream of a retold Christmas classic.
