Publisher’s Description:

Hide your daughters and your maiden aunts…

Lord Samuel Travis is back. —

The London Hearsay, special society edition Equal parts scoundrel and seducer, he’s returned to London determined to mend the rift with his older brother. All Sam must do is take possession of a tumbledown town house. A seemingly simple task, except the house is occupied—by an infuriating, whip-smart beauty who refuses to do his bidding.

Miss Juliette Lacey’s wallflower days are over. She has a plan to turn her eccentric family into the toast of the ton—but the devilishly handsome rake trying to oust them from their home thwarts her at every turn. How can one man be so vexing and make her simmer with desire? As her attraction to Sam deepens, Julie’s problems grow—she may have, once upon a time, secretly shared a kiss with his honorable older brother. Suddenly, Julie’s caught between a rogue and a marquess, between passion and respectability. Torn between two brothers, what’s a girl to do?

My Thoughts:

This is my favorite book of this series and that’s saying a lot!

When the second son, Lord Samuel Travis returns to London, he starts out rather badly by resuming his Roguish and debauched ways. Mistaking his neighbors home for his own, he ends up in the bed of an elderly spinster.

This was the straw that broke the camel’s back resulting his brother ousting from his home.

This was just the excuse his older brother needs. He wants Sam to oust the people residing in a house that belonged to their father that he has inherited.

Julie lives in the house with her elderly uncle who is somewhat eccentric and who may well be having senior moments.

Sam’s brother wants Julie as his mistress and thinks to force the issue by threatening eviction from their home.

Will Julie and Sam get past their beginning to form a lasting love?

This at times humorous and sometime heartbreaking story is one I couldn’t put down. I finished it in one day. After I started reading it I simply couldn’t put it down.

I gave this book 5.0 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 4.0 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy is a wonderfully written part of this book. A five out of five star rating is very unusual for me to give but this book was simply delightful.

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

About The Author:

Anna Bennett started swiping romances from her mom’s bookshelf as a teenager and AnnaBennett_AuthorPhoto_Color-300x400decided historicals (with their balls, dukes, and gowns) were the best. So, when she had the chance to spend a semester in London she packed her bags—and promptly fell in love with the city, its history, and its pubs. She dreamed of writing romance, but somehow ended up a software analyst instead.

Fortunately, a few years and a few careers later, Anna found her way back to writing the stories she loves and won the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart® for Regency Historical Romance. She lives in Maryland with her husband and three children, who try valiantly not to roll their eyes whenever she quotes Jane Austen. Her weaknesses include reality TV, cute shoes, and coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.

Anna spends a lot of time procrastinating on Twitter and Facebook, and she’d love to see you there! You can also keep up with her book news by signing up for her newsletter.

By the way, Anna wrote some books under the pen name Anne Barton, and you can find them on the Books page.

Happy reading!

Publisher’s Description:

Brothers are supposed to be kind… caring… supportive… protective.
Catherine Walman’s brother, however, is not. He has maligned her reputation until no honorable man will seek her company, wasted her dowry and endangered her home with his gambling and now his new wife has made it clear Catherine is no longer welcome.
The hand of fortune intervenes when a letter arrives advising Catherine that a stranger has bequeathed to her “a home and money to keep it.” Catherine seizes upon this chance, hoping that it might be enough for her to be independent, to be free – only to discover this stranger also had a brother, or two, or three.

About The Authors:

71B5FkGhUfL__UX250_A chance meeting at a writers’ conference brought Cary Morgan and Deborah O’Neill Cordes together, two award-winning authors who connected because of a mutual love of time travel fiction. Collaboration ensued, the search for a pen name the first step in their working relationship. Their maiden names provided the solution – and “Morgan O’Neill” was born.

Cary and Deborah’s backgrounds are uniquely suited to writing stories steeped in atmosphere and history: Deborah has a master’s degree in history and is a dedicated genealogist; Cary is a talented linguist in French and is currently a student of Latin. They’ve traveled to Europe’s ancient and medieval sites many times, with Cary living on the Continent for five years.

The Morgan O’Neill time travel novels have received a number of literary awards, including two finalist wins in the Booksellers’ Best Awards, two semifinalist wins in the William Faulkner-William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition, first, second, and third place wins for the Mainstream Novel with Strong Romantic Elements category of the Golden Rose Contest, a top ten finalist award in the Pacific Northwest Writers’ Conference Zola Awards Literary Contest, and a top ten finalist win in the Orange Rose Contest.
