Publisher’s Description:

Sir Philip Hampton seems to be exactly what he claims: a loyal Royalist newly returned from exile in France.

But Alysa Leighton must be without doubt, for in 1659 England, Civil War has set Royalist against Roundhead, and those who support the king, like Alysa’s family, are always in peril.

If Philip proves a Roundhead spy, everyone Alysa loves is in grave danger. But the more Alysa learns of Philip, the more she likes him.

Soon a marriage proposal is in the air and Alysa realizes she is in love. But is Philip friend or foe?

REVIEWS:
“A blend of romance, conspiracy, and hidden identities… with just the right mix of action and seduction.” ~Susan Tanner, author of Winds Across Texas

Rich history, strong love story

I loved the history surrounding this story. It showed how people of wealth were affected by war. Alysa spoke with her father about politics and other matters, treating her like a son. She was fairly headstrong and had a smart mind of her own. Philip returned to claim his inheritance but had his secrets. There are lots of secrets in this story, some pull Alysa and Philip apart and some bring them together. Their love bridges all differences and danger around them.

I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery Read and Review Club. This is my unsolicited review. ~

When the time comes, will Lawrence be able to say goodbye to Violette or will he compromise her virtue and make her his forever?

If he cannot have her for his wife, then he’ll make her his mistress…

Publisher’s Description:

Honor Among Rogues

Alexander Edgware, Lord Xavier, has quite a reputation–for daring, wagering, and wickedness in all its delightful forms. But the wager before him is hardly his preferred sport: Xavier must persuade a proper young lady to attend his famously naughty Christmas house party–and stay the full, ruinous two weeks. Worse, the lady is Louisa Oliver, a doe-eyed bookworm Xavier finds quite charming. Yet to refuse the challenge is impossible–he will simply have to appoint himself Miss Oliver’s protector. . .

Mischief Among Misses

Louisa knows her chance for a husband has passed. But she has no desire to retire into spinsterhood without enjoying a few grand adventures first. When Lord Xavier’s invitation arrives, Louisa is more intrigued than insulted. And once inside the rogues’ gallery, she just may have a thing or two to teach her gentlemen friends about daring. . .

Publisher’s Description:

 

Accounting major Jen has one more year before she graduates and moves out of Harland County to find a corporate job and maybe a good-looking businessman to boot. Cowboys were handsome and fun, but they didn’t stick. Neither did ranch hands.

Experience has taught her they come and go, and some took a piece of her heart with them. Well, no more handsome, sexy, cowboys. She wanted a stay around, stable, lifetime type of guy.

Then she returns to the family ranch for the summer to discover Brock, the hot, one-night stand she’d given herself permission to enjoy right after finals, is the new ranch hand. And dang it, she’s just as drawn to his sexy grin, gorgeous green eyes and quiet strength.

As the summer ends, classes resume, and the holidays near, the handsome, alpha cowboy has her rethinking her future. So does the unborn baby she’s carrying. Maybe sticking around Harland County isn’t so bad—if she could get Brock to stay, and break out of the ‘leave Jen and move on to another ranch’ mold.

About Donna Michaels:

It’s all my mother’s fault.

about-me-picture1-194x300She read to me before I could read and opened up that magical world where I still reside today. Then came television and movies. Now I had three avenues to feed my imagination…and boy could I eat! As you no doubt figured out, this led to my writing career. After several starts in between having a son, twin sons, then a daughter, I didn’t get serious until my youngest child entered 1st grade. Now, I’m multi-published with several publisher and self-published in e-Book and print with a ton of voices in my head. I love those voices! They helped me win awards and become a New York Times and USA Today Best Selling author. Hope they never stop!

A Baxter Family Christmas

Publisher’s Description:

Karen Kingsbury’s most beloved characters are back!

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes A Baxter Family Christmas, a life-changing story of love and hope featuring the Baxter family.

Whether you’re meeting the Baxter family for the first time, or finding them all over again…A Baxter Family Christmas will leave fingerprints on your heart forever.

Two years have passed since the terrible car accident that took the life of John Baxter’s daughter, Erin, her husband and three of their four daughters. Prompted by grief, and missing his daughter, John has invited a stranger for Christmas Eve dinner—Kendra Bryant, the transplant recipient who now has Erin’s heart.

In light of their father’s idea, Ashley and her brother Luke don’t think it’s right. They want to protect their ten-year-old niece, Amy—the only surviving member of the accident. But John is determined and believes meeting this woman is something his deceased daughter would want.

At the same time, Maddie West, the eighteen-year-old daughter of Brooke Baxter West, is praying for meaning this Christmas. Could she find it in a newfound friendship with a boy she never expected to see again? Maddie believes in miracles, especially at Christmastime, but this is a stretch even she can’t imagine.

Meanwhile, Kendra Bryant has been struggling these past few years to find purpose in the tragedy that gave her a second chance. She believes the invitation to see the Baxters and witness their unwavering faith in God can instill peace and happiness back into her life.

Heartwarming and touching, filled with love and redemption, A Baxter Family Christmas brings together two families in the aftermath of loss and in the midst of an unfolding love story, all with the help of one very special child.

My Thoughts:

This is a Wonderful Story!!!

This inspirational, Christian Christmas story was one I could not put down. I finished it the same day I started it.
I have seen her books turned into movies for Hallmark but this is the first one I have read.

I will be sure to read others now that I have become acquainted with her books.
I must admit that I at times had to put it down due to tears clouding my vision.

Whether you are a long time reader of her works or a new reader this Christmas story is not to be missed.

I would give this book a solid 5 star rating for storyline and characterization. There is only a mild sensual rating of 1.5 of 5.0 flames as this is a sweetly intense story, not a sexual one.
I received a complimentary Digital ARC to read of this book which in no way affected my opinion.
