About the Books:

Duchess by Day, Mistress by Night

 

Georgiana Rutherford, the Duchess of Hardcastle, seemingly has it all—wealth, pedigree, and the admiration of the ton, except her heart hungers for a passionate affair. She meets the enigmatic and ruthless Mr. Rhys Tremayne, a man known to low and high society as the Broker. The attraction between them is impossible to deny, but she cannot be feeling it for this man.

Rhys Tremayne has built his wealth and empire by dealing secrets on the black market of the London underworld. He is determined to take his sisters away from the depraved world they’ve known their entire lives, and the duchess is the perfect woman to help sponsor his sisters into society. The only problem is that he wants more from Georgiana, even if the social divide between them ensures she can only ever be his lover in secret.

My Thoughts:

We have another winner from an author who has quickly become one of my favorites.
Oh what a tangled web…. Georgiana is a young, widowed Duchess who has a young son, the current Duke. When his nursemaid disappears she looks for help from the authorities but finds none there. Her brother engages the help of Rhys Tremayne, known for his ability to come up with answers when no one else can. Rhys quickly solves the issue of the missing nursemaid not realizing that it will lead to something more sinister in the long run.
This tangle of mystery leads to an affair between Georgiana  and Rhys, but will it become more?
I enjoyed this book and read it in one sitting.
I gave it 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a high sensual rating of 4.5 of 5.0 flames.
The intimacy between hero and heroine is scorching.
I received a complimentary digital ARC 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.


The Devil of Dunakin Castle

 

Englishwoman, Grace Ellington, has made a home in Scotland, but to escape from the meddling people around her who seem to think she needs to wed right away—because women need saving, right? —she volunteers to journey north to aid a friend in childbirth.

Keir MacKinnon, the younger brother of the MacKinnon clan chief, has been raised to strike fear in people, on and off the battlefield. Trained to uphold MacKinnon law, he has hardened into a lethal warrior. Caught in a Highland blizzard with the feisty Grace, Keir realizes the beautiful woman who saved him can also save his nephew’s life.
Sparks fly when he takes her against her will to his home, and Grace’s courage is put to the ultimate test. Is Keir MacKinnon the passionate, kind man she saved in the Highland blizzard, or is he truly the cruel executioner who seeks to solve all issues by the sword?

My Thoughts:

This is book #4 of this series and I have read three of the four. I seem to have missed book #2.
I enjoyed reading this one more than I did books #1 and #3.

It kept my attention more. I simply couldn’t put this one down and I finished it in one sitting.

Grace is my type of heroine. She is understanding if a bit clumsy and bungling at times. She has a fear of water that she has never overcome since her brother held her under water when she was a child.
When she sets out to help her friend Mairi with the birth of her first child she is forced to stop at an inn. Her traveling companion has become ill and Grace intends to go to the local apothecary for something to help him. Only the snow is worse than she thought and she becomes lost.
Keir MacKinnon is looking for the renowned Mairi, the healer he needs for his nephew. He happens upon Grace who is cornered by wolves. In the process of his heroics, he is bitten and knocked over the head by a tree branch unwittingly dislodged by Grace who he has placed up a tree.
How will this convoluted tale procede? Will this unusual beginning lead to something Keir and Grace never thought to have for themselves?
I gave this wonderfully written if sometime violent tale 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 4 of 5 flames. The intimacy between our hero and heroine is very heated indeed.
Although there are repeat characters from the other books in this series, this book can be read easily as a standalone title.
I received a complimentary digital ARC copy of this book via NetGalley from the publisher to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
