Publisher’s Description:

Alexandra Smith always knew her place in life.

As a forgotten child who’d grown up in one of London’s better orphanages, Alex knew exactly what the future held for her:
Hard work and the company of friends who’d become her only family.

When London discovers that she’s the daughter of peer, the scandal has the power to change:
1- not only her future
2- but the fabric of Society itself.

Justin Padmore holds a darkness.

This had kept him chained to the shadows for years.
When he hears of the latest scandal, he knows he has an opportunity to step out into the light.

He’s ready to return to Society’s good graces and what better way to do so than to offer his charitable assistance to Alex?

But unearthing the mystery of Alexandra’s birth seems to unleash its own dangers…
Will they survive?
Or will Alex once again find herself right back where she began?

My Thoughts:

This is a well written regency romance. I enjoyed the read and couldn’t put it down once I got started.

Alexandra was born on the wrong side of the blanket. When society discovers that she is the illegitimate daughter of a peer of the realm suddenly her life is in danger.

Who wants her dead and why?

Justin Padmore holds a dark secret of his own. He lived his childhood as an abused child. His mother despised the fact that he was male and a product of rape. She tried to kill her own child numerous times. How ironic that her own death was caused by the fact that she wouldn’t let him touch her or his sisters.

I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 2.0 of 5.0 flames. This is a sweet romance with lack of any real intimacy.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the author to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

About The Author:

Eleanor Meyers is a hopeless romantic who believes that one should breathe and live on love. She is especially intrigued by the love tales of the Regency era due to the juxtaposition of tradition and love in a very stylistic fashion.

At a young age, she is inspired by the works of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer. There is a strong romantic appeal about that era and it is Eleanor’s desire that readers will take time to come away with her through her writings and immerse oneself in that time when love was so pure and intense.

In Eleanor’s writings, there is a pragmatic display of human’s imperfections; hence characters who may be flawed in certain ways. In the midst of dealing with one’s imperfections, a couple found love, found hope in each other and in God.

Eleanor incorporated messages of redemption, forgiveness and sometimes inner deliverances from the bondages that so held a character for so long. It is her belief that no matter how seemingly hopeless one’s situation might be, there will always be hope. They key is to wait and to believe and to hold on.

So come away with her and be enthralled in the beautiful Regency era!

Publisher’s Description:

Matthew Grayken is young, successful, and dying, which is why he’s about to propose to a total stranger. He isn’t interested in love. He needs a caregiver, a companion, and someone to be his legal voice when he can no longer speak for himself.

Lonely, compassionate nurse Mikaela Compton is intrigued by Matt Grayken’s tender request, but when their friendly marriage turns into love, she rejects the inevitability of Matt’s death and prays for a miracle instead.

Mikaela succeeds in reigniting Matt’s will to fight, but his body is losing the battle and he is suffering. She recognizes that her urgent need to save Matt has caused her to betray the fundamental promise she made him–to help him die peaceably.

Matt needs a miracle, and Mikaela believes one is attainable, but she will need to leave him at the hour of his greatest need. She’s about to learn that while love sometimes draws you close, it sometimes requires you to go out on a limb.

Publisher’s Description:

Once upon a time, Little Ellie Browning swiftly discovered happily ever afters did not exist and rakes were simply rakes. When the man she had adored for years kissed her and left her heartbroken and she was forced to marry an elderly earl to save her reputation, she resolved to put any dreams of fairy tales aside.

Seven years later, the now widowed Eleanor, Countess of Hawthorne, has returned to England after years of travelling and is now part-owner of a cotton mill left to her by her late husband.

But the owner of the mill, and the very same handsome rake who hurt her years earlier, has no desire to let a woman interfere with his business, let alone little Ellie Browning–no matter how fascinating he finds her since her transformation from coltish scarecrow to almost graceful countess.

Lucian is still recovering from the after-effects of one of his mills succumbing to fire, and now he’s fighting to save the other in a tough economic climate. He doesn’t need this new distraction, especially when, after a series of accidents, it becomes clear someone wishes the mill to close and he has to find the culprit–fast.

With things heating up between Ellie and Lucian, it’s apparent that not only is the mill in peril–they are both at risk of getting burned…
