PUBLISHER’S DESCRIPTION:

HE’S A WILD ROGUE WITH A GUARDED HEART.

Notorious rogue, Lawrence Russell has no desire to marry—or heaven forbid, fall in love. Although he enjoys his fair share of pleasure, Lawrence prefers to protect his heart. Yet, when he comes to the rescue of a brave and passionate Persian princess, he discovers his heart may be at risk from the very thing he’s always feared…

SHE’S A PRINCESS WITH A DANGEROUS SECRET.

Zehra Darzi’s life has been turned on its head. When she flees her home after her parents’ brutal murder, she is kidnapped and transported to England. There, she awaits her doom—being auctioned off for a brothel. But fate intervenes in the form of a heroic man, who purchases her freedom. As Zehra adjusts to life in England, she can’t help but fall for her rescuer, Lawrence. But when an enemy from her past resurfaces in London, she knows it’s only a matter of time before her darkest secret is brought to light.
And this secret just might cost Lawrence his life…

MY THOUGHTS:

I originally read this book as part of “The Scoundrel Who Loved Me” anthology which I borrowed through KindleUnlimited. This book is now being released as a single title.

Zehra Darzi’s life will never be the same. She witnessed the murder of her parents and then was kidnapped eventually landing on the auction block at a London Brothel.

Lawrence Russell has been sent on an undercover mission by his brother. He never wants to marry but when he spots the exotic beauty with the frightened look in her eyes on the auction block, he will do anything he must to save her.

What dark secret does Zehra hold and will it lead to the death of her savior?

I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 4 of 5 flames.

This historical romance has a fairy tale quality to it with just enough intimacy to titillate the senses of the reader.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book as a standalone title after having read it as part of the Anthology it was previously released in.

This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

PUBLISHER’S DESCRIPTION:

SOCIETY CALLS HIM THE DEVIL OF LONDON…

Lord Vaughn, Viscount Darlington, has a dark reputation for sinful pleasures, putting off even the most ardent mamas who crave his title for their unmarried daughters They say he’s dangerous enough to ruin a woman with just one look…But he can’t resist the pleas of a woman who needs his help. This rogue might yet be redeemed.

SHE’S THE DARLING OF THE TON…

All of London adores Perdita Darby. She receives invites to every party and has eligible gentlemen willing to wait for her, but she has no desire to marry. When she discovers a cruel man wishes to entrap her into a marriage that could spell her doom, she has nowhere left to turn. She makes a bargain with the devil of London, hoping to save herself. But the cost of their false engagement may put them both in danger…

MY THOUGHTS:

I love Lauren Smith books, especially her historical romance and dragon shifter titles. I try not to miss a single one of these two genre by this author.

Perdita Darby wants no part of marriage to the cruel man who wants to trap her into marriage. With nowhere to turn she seeks the aid of Lord Vaughn, Viscount Darlington known for his roguish ways.

Vaughn is in desperate straits and needs the money Perdita is willing to offer for his help. But will this fake engagement lead to an everlasting love between this unlikely pair?

I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy is sensual but mildly written in this book.

I originally read this title as part of the “Hot Winter Nights” anthology previously available on Amazon. I re-read it when offered a complimentary digital ARC of it as a standalone title. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

England 1651 

The English Civil War is over, but the wounds of the conflict are still raw.

Young Lady Katherine Fanshawe is determined to save her inheritance from the grasping hands of the authorities, and build a brighter future for herself.

Although Kate knows it is dangerous, she invites her rebel friends to live and work at Markyate Manor.

But her plans are quickly blown apart when, after months of hard work, her stepfather returns unexpectedly, and evicts them all without pay.

Kate’s friends are bitter and turn against her, accusing her of being cursed and a bringer of misfortune.

Desperate to regain their sympathy and trust, she turns to highway robbery to pay them back.

But Kate is not the only highway thief on the road, and her rival is intent on bloodshed and murder.

Soon the local constable is hot on her trail for crimes she did not commit.

Just when Kate thinks things can’t get worse, another secret begins to reveal itself – a secret that threatens her very life.

In this struggle against her loveless family, militant authorities and an unforgiving winter, will Lady Katherine’s birth right turn out to be a blessing or a curse?

Publisher’s Description:

Introducing “My Restless Earl” – The Second Standalone story in the Duke’s Daughter’s Series 

Jessica Seaworth is the impulsive, playful and free-spirited daughter of the Duke. If she had her way, the free life she has lived at her father’s country estate in Westbrook would be all she would ever know. 

But with her father confessing he is not long for the world and declaring his wishes that he see his daughters all be wed, Jessica must reevaluate her future.

Now with Jessica’s serious older sister Amelia wed, Jessica is left with the pressure to be next. She hates the thought of marriage though, and worse still is the man everyone seems to be pushing her towards. 

George Eccles is the last man she wants to marry, and Jessica is determined to make him hate her. As usual though, fate makes other plans, and as hard as she tries, love creeps its way into both their hearts.

But a personality and military life like George’s easily serves in the making of enemies, and with Jessica in possession of a tempestuous mind herself, along with being the daughter of one of the wealthiest Dukes in England, there is little chance their union won’t be without more than the usual difficulties. 

A story of unexpected love against all odds in the world of Regency era England. “My Restless Earl” is the second book of the Duke’s Daughters Series by Rose Pearson. Each book can be treated as its own standalone romance story, and cliffhanger endings are always strictly avoided.
