It is a truth universally acknowledged
that a lady can do anything a man can do:

backwards and in high-heeled dancing slippers.

Publisher’s Description:

Neil Wraxall is one of a group of noble younger sons who met as soldiers and are now trying desperately to settle back into peaceful Society. When Neil is asked to help the Earl of St. Maur’s daughter with a charity, Neil accepts, thinking it’ll be easy.

Lady Juliana has no use for high society. She’s running a home for orphaned boys. Juliana is grateful for Neil-until she realizes she can’t stop thinking about him. She doesn’t like the distraction and wants him gone. But when Juliana pushes a local crime lord too far, she’ll need Neil more than ever before.

My Thoughts:

For most of this story I couldn’t quit laughing.

Imagine a male virgin!

Neil is the bastard son of a member of the peerage.
Juliana is the very legitimate daughter of an Earl. She spends much of her time taking care of a dozen orphaned boys.
Her father wants her back home and appeals to his friend who summons his illegitimate offspring to take care of the matter.
What ensues is a comical and sometimes dangerous romp.

I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 4.5 of 5.0 flames.
Although the couple engage in only very heavy petting until after their wedding the scenes are very sensual.

I received a complimentary digital ARC 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.

Publisher’s Description:

“Highly entertaining, humorous, action-packed, and so much fun!” —Night Owl Reviews, 4 stars for The Rogue You Know

Ewan Mostyn thinks a job as a duke’s daughter’s bodyguard will be easy—but Lady Lorraine has a few tricks up her sleeve that spark an undeniable passion

Fiercely loyal to his friends and comrades, Ewan Mostyn is the toughest in a group of younger sons of nobility who met as soldiers and are now trying desperately to settle back into peaceful Society. Ewan trusts his brawn more than his brains, but when he’s offered a job watching the Duke of Ridlington’s stubbornly independent daughter, he finds both are challenged.

Lady Lorraine wants none of her father’s high-handed ways, and she’ll do everything in her power to avoid her distressingly attractive bodyguard—until she lands herself in real trouble. Lorraine begins to see Ewan’s protectiveness in a new light, and she can only hope that her stoic guardian will do for her what he’s always done—fight for what he wants.

Review last Updated on October 31, 2017

My Thoughts:

This is an exceptional beginning to this new series.
Shana Galen has wrought a story that ends with the reader wanting more and anxiously awaiting the next book in the series.

Ewan has always been the perpetual misfit. Although he is the son of an earl, he is the third son and of no use to his father. Particularly since he seems to be just a big stupid brute and there are two older brothers already… the heir and a spare!

Lady Lorraine is the daughter of a Duke who thinks herself in love with Ewan’s cousin who has for years been the bane of Ewan’s existence.

Constantly teased and tormented, Ewan begins to believe all of the taunts. He has a learning disability, but such things were thought of as sheer stupidity in the times in which the story is portrayed. It becomes obvious to us that he is dyslexic.

Lorraine discovers his problem and is certain she can help him.

Will their unusual relationship turn into something more? Will Ewan prove to be more than just a brutish protector?

I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 4.25 of 5.0 flames.
Once our hero decides he can’t possibly live without our heroine’s touch things become very intimate and heated.

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:

Coming face-to-face with the scoundrel who broke her heart on the eve of her wedding to another man could not be more awkward or ill-timed for Lady Sally Ford. When she accepted London’s most eligible earl, she hoped her heart had healed enough to learn to love him after they tied the knot. Her betrothed has no idea she was once engaged to an ambitious sea captain who betrayed her, and Sally has never forgotten or forgiven Captain Hastings for leaving her behind as he made his fortune at sea.

When Felix answered the urgent summons from his superior, he never expected to face his angry first and only love about to marry an earl or to discover he has the support of her family to get in her way. With no expectation of winning her back, Felix finally has a chance to clear the air about the past. But with every argument and stolen moment, their former passion reignites as if it had never waned. Is there a chance to begin again and forgive each other when they must part any day?

Publisher’s Description:

A grieving widower. A strong lady. And a little girl who needs them both.

After losing his wife in an accident, GRAHAM ASTOR, DUKE OF KENSINGTON, decides that love is not worth the risk of having his heart broken all over again. Even his little daughter he keeps at a distance, afraid to hurt her with the darkness that now lives in his heart. Since he is unable to be the father she deserves, he vows to find her a mother who will heal her little heart.

At a garden party, Graham spots a young woman with a shy smile tending lovingly to her little cousins…and he knows his duty.

As the black sheep of her family, ROSABEL LANDER has no illusions about love. After her parents’ deaths, her aunt and uncle reluctantly took her in, demanding nothing short of complete obedience. Unable to live down her past, Rosabel only wishes for one thing: freedom.

However, before she dares to take the first step toward an independent future, a cold-hearted stranger asks for her hand in marriage…and as the obedient niece, Rosabel cannot refuse.

Will Rosabel find love after all? Or will the memory of Graham’s late wife keep them both from finding happiness?

This Beauty and the Beast story by a USA TODAY bestselling author proves that the past can never be forgotten, but its regrets can be forgiven.
