Publisher’s Description:

Llynmore Castle is the only place Annabel Lockhart has ever considered home. For years, she’s been able to live as she wished, freely roaming the wild moors. Now there’s a new earl, as arrogant as he is handsome, and he wants her out. But if he thinks she’ll go quietly, he’s in for a surprise.

Theo Townsend returned from war a changed man. After unexpectedly inheriting an earldom and a secluded castle in the Scottish Highlands to go with it, he thinks he’s found the perfect place to hide from the world—until he arrives to find a spirited, beautiful woman already in residence. He can’t just throw her out, but surely there’s a way to get her to leave on her own. The sooner she’s gone, the better, especially when he realizes there’s more than just mutual dislike between them.

Publisher’s Description:

Wallflower Eleanor Townsend is not like most women. She has no interest in marriage, the ton, or fashion. Instead, her heart lies with science. And when the opportunity to present a paper arises, she takes it, even though it means dressing as a man. But her disguise doesn’t quite work. Someone notices—and the brute intends to blackmail her.
Former prizefighter James MacGregor wants to be a gentleman, like the men he trains in his boxing saloon. His first step is gaining a beautiful, wealthy wife. Eleanor Townsend is not that woman, but a chance encounter gives him the leverage he needs. She’ll gain him entry to high society and help him with his atrocious manners, and in return, he won’t reveal her secret. It’s the perfect arrangement. At least until the sparks between them become more than just their personalities clashing. But there’s too much at stake for James to give in to his growing attraction.

My Thoughts:

(Reviewed at NetGalley September 14th, 2017)

If Eleanor could only be accepted by her scientific counterparts as what she is, an intelligent inquisitive woman. But no, society believes only a man holds such interests as bugs and their mating habits. Women are too delicate to cultivate such interests or so the scientific community of men believes.
Eleanor has written her detailed observations under a male pseudonym so when she is invited to present her observations to the local scientific community she decides to carry the mascaraed one step further by dressing as a man.
She is certain that she has been successful in her endeavor until James, a social climbing ex prizefighter let’s her know in no uncertain terms that she has failed to fool him. He decides he needs her help in obtaining a certain woman of higher social standing as his wife.
What starts out as a comical romp progressed quickly into a convoluted tale culminating into a most unusual love story.
I gave this book 4..25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 4.5 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy in this story was late in this stories development but very heated being closer to hot than warm.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

She was his for one week only…

When a beautiful stranger ducks into his bookshop during a rainstorm, Cale Cameron, well-known rake, is instantly attracted to her. Elizabeth, Lady Thornhill, is restless and hungers for something she cannot name. Society would never accept a countess and a mere bookseller, so they agree to a one week affair to indulge their desire.

As their passion ignites and their connection grows, Elizabeth threatens the one thing Cale has protected above all else – his heart. Letting her go is the only solution… and the one thing he is not prepared to do.
