“Roberta Gellis has an extraordinary talent!”—Affaire de Coeur

With more than 8 million books in print RT Book Reviews Lifetime Achievement Award-winning author Roberta Gellis is the master of the medieval romance.

Lissa never much liked her elderly husband, but she certainly hadn’t suspected he was plotting treason. When she’s suddenly left a widow, the sharp gaze of the king’s head investigator turns straight to her. Sir Justin is honor-bound to treat Lissa as a suspect, but keeping his distance from the beautiful temptress requires every ounce of his legendary self-control.

As King John’s court swirls with intrigue, tempers are high, passions are hot, and one wrong move could change the course of history.

“A rich tapestry…delightfully imagined.”—Publisher’s Weekly

“Only a consummate writer of Ms. Gellis’s talents could bring the Middle Ages so brilliantly alive.”—Rave Reviews

“Beautifully written, deeply romantic, and utterly magnificent.” —Courtney Milan, New York Times bestselling author

Escaping the brutal reaches of Tibet is one accomplishment, but escaping the snare of love is another entirely…

All of London is abuzz with the tale of Will Repton. The lone survivor of a massacre in Tibet has returned to England a hero, but the traumatized explorer has no time for glory. Another dangerous expedition awaits. Nothing will deter him from his quest, and no one will unearth his secret-until Will meets Charlotte Baker.

Vivacious Charlotte Baker also has a mission-to find a man whose bold spirit matches her own. When she meets Will Repton, she immediately recognizes him as her soul mate, and she’s naively willing to turn her back on the rules of propriety to ensnare him. Will is torn between his fascination with Charlotte and his vow to finish his quest. He knows what it is to risk life and limb-but what if his most perilous adventure doesn’t lie across an ocean, but within his own lost heart?

Emma and the Earl


Bluestocking Brides Book 3

Publisher’s Description:

” I never considered freckles and red hair to be an enticement but with those connections, the remaining Chadwick sisters have become quite the prospect for the bachelor about town. I flatter myself with the knowledge, however, that they will never be truly accepted by the ton. Not with such displeasing and unladylike temperaments.” – Lady Hampton, Duchess of Bromley.

With a duke and a viscount for brothers-in-law, Emma has found herself subject to increasing attention from the many eligible men of the ton. A new experience for this redheaded, freckled bluestocking, who would rather be doing something else—anything else—than dancing with men who are only interested in her connections.

Marriage is not for her.

At least it was not. Until a certain Lord Radcliff—and a true rake—decided to accidentally ruin her. Well, perhaps neither of them quite envisioned ending up twined in such a mess that the only way to save her reputation—and that of her younger sister—was to marry the man.

The Earl of Radcliff is a practical stranger to her but she is prepared to make the best of her situation. After all, she is nothing if not a quick learner. Perhaps she can learn to be a successful wife and countess. 

Unfortunately, the earl is hiding a few secrets. She’s not sure what they are but one of those secrets is causing a strong hatred of the country, and that just will not do. Emma hates London and is prepared to do anything to remain in the country with her family and friends. Somehow, while dealing with all the new adventures and, um, desires a marriage can bring, she must persuade her new husband that the country life is for them.

My Thoughts:

Samantha Holt has left the best and most comical for last. In this book which is fashioned to be the final one in the series we find Emma who has continuously blundered her way through an endless array of hobbies has finally blunderer her way into a scandal and certain ruin.

She only meant to lend a helping hand to this overly handsome earl who needs help down from the window ledge. Unfortunately for the both of them he fell, not to the ground but on top of Emma with her mother and other guests as a belated audience.

Morgan, like Emma had no intentions to marry but he is honorable and would never leave a lady to be ruined. His reason for not wanting marriage is put aside and they are wed.

What sort of trail will this scandalous if very comical beginning take and how will it end?

This third book of this series is not to be missed. I gave it 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5.0 flames. This book is more comical than sensual but does have it’s intimate scenes.

I read this book as a borrowed title through kindle unlimited. My thoughts about this book are unsolicited and solely my own.
