Publisher’s Description:

The war years are behind them.
The future is before them.
And one by one, the widows of Lyttlefield Park are getting restless…

Lady Charlotte Cavendish is still the spirited girl who tried to elope in the name of love. That dream was thwarted by her father who trapped her into a loveless, passionless marriage. But now widowed, Charlotte is free to reenter the giddy world of the ton—and pursue her desires. For hardly your typical widow, she remains innocent to the pleasures of the flesh. Yet her life is finally her own, and she intends to keep it that way.

Nash, the twelfth Earl of Wrotham, is beguiled by Charlotte at first sight—and the feeling is mutual. When he receives her intriguing invitation to a house party, the marriage-minded lord plans to further their acquaintance. But even he cannot sway her aversion to matrimony, and only with great restraint does he resist her most tempting offer. For unbeknownst to Charlotte, the misadventures of the past are revisiting them both, and bedding her could cost him everything—or give him everything he ever wanted.

My Thoughts:

This well written first book of a new series drew me in.
A budding relationship with constant barriers and a bit of mystery make up this first book of a new series.

Lady Charlotte is a widow just coming out of mourning for a husband she didn’t really mourn at all. He was cruel to her and married her only for her dowry. She and her other widow friends have formed a club of sorts and intend to find lovers or new husbands for themselves.

When Charlotte meets Nash, the twelfth Earl of Wrotham, there is no doubt in her mind that this is the man for her, but Charlotte doesn’t want a new husband. She is set on a lover instead. After all husbands control every aspect of their wife’s life and she has her newfound freedom to consider.

Nash is looking for a wife and though he has a similar immediate attraction to Charlotte, it seems that a rake of the first order is constantly getting in the way of their budding relationship.

What role will Charlotte’s stepson play in this story. We know him to be grasping and unkind very much like his father.

I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3 of 5 flames.
Will their pasts be the end of this newly found attraction or will it lead to Nash’s hopes for marriage?

I received a complimentary paperback ARC copy of this book from the author to read and review.
This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

About The Author:

Jenna Jaxon is a multi-published author of historical and contemporary romance. She has just finished her fifth full length novel, To Woo A Wicked Widow, set in Regency England and the first book in her five part series, The Widow’s Club.

Only Scandal Will Do, the first book in her Georgian House of Pleasure series, is available in both e-book and print. Only Marriage Will Do, second book in the series, released early in 2015. Her medieval trilogy, Time Enough to Love, is published by Rising Phoenix Publications. Betrothal,Book 1, Betrayal,Book 2, and Beleaguered,Book 3 are now all available.

Jenna has been reading and writing historical romance since she was a teenager. A romantic herself, she has always loved a dark side to the genre, a twist, suspense, a surprise. She tries to incorporate all of these elements into her own stories.

She lives in Virginia with her family and a small menagerie of pets. When not reading or writing, she indulges her passion for the theatre, working with local theatres as a director. She often feels she is directing her characters on their own private stage.

She has equated her writing to an addiction to chocolate because once she starts she just can’t stop.

Francis has come to see the world in a different light after his travels to exotic far eastern lands. He has just arrived back from India upon hearing of his father’s passing. “Francis St. Martin, the Duke of Hartford,” he mused. It was never a title he wanted, nor the life he longed for. Yet now the time had come, he had his duties regardless of what he wanted or wished for.

Whilst traveling in India Francis has spent time with his school friend Peter and promises to visit Peter’s family upon his return. His family are merchants in the fabric trade and as it is his sister’s first season he decides to take his family and sister to visit Peter’s father to discuss suitable fabrics for dresses. Here he meets Peter’s sister Isabella and there is an instant attraction between them but both of them know that the boundaries of society cannot be ignored.

Elsewhere plans are afoot to trap Francis into marrying someone who he has not the slightest interest in but Isabella hears of these devilish plans and vows to help Francis even though she knows that her discovery could endanger her family’s business and reputation irretrievably

Publisher’s Description:

**PLEASE NOTE: This is the JUST GOOD CLEAN FUN version of ESCAPADE by New York Times bestselling romance author Kasey Michaels**

For a limited time, get two free books from Kasey > bit.ly/kaseymichaels

Country born and bred Miss Caledonia Johnston has come to London during the Silly Season, not to dance and flirt, and please her Mama by making an advantageous match. In fact, her parents don’t even know she’s there, which is probably a good thing, as she’s fibbed her way to Mayfair to Wreak Revenge on a certain Mr. Noel Kinsey (and sees nothing wrong with that because, well, she’s Callie, and she somehow believes she’s rather invincible, with Right on her side).

Enter one Simon Roxbury, Viscount Brockton, surprising himself when he comes to Callie’s aid…which infuriates her, but she’ll find a way around him to complete her “mission.” He seems nice enough, and his mother is a dear thing, so she agrees to be good…especially considering she’d almost shot the man.

Come along as amused friends interfere, simple plans twist themselves into hilarious knots, and True Love (currently hiding in the bushes, hoping to remain safe away from these two mis-matched schemers), takes a few chances of its own. 

“Using wit and romance with a master’s skill, Kasey Michaels aims for the heart and never misses.” — #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Nora Roberts

Publisher’s Description:

C17th England.

Julia Pallister, daughter of Sotherleigh, was born in 1641 and unknowingly heir to the only remaining gown of Elizabeth I’s exquisite wardrobe.

This pearl-encrusted gift to Julia’s grandmother, Katherine, represented the staunchly royalist stance which bound together the family, generation after generation.

But in light of the tyranny of Oliver Cromwell’s armies, all the Pallisters shared a courage beyond measure, to fight for their king, their home and their freedom.

Three indomitable women band together to preserve their future: 

Proud Katherine, old now, but still determined to fight,

The gentle Anne, who made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve Sotherleigh for her children,

And Julia, young, wilful and turbulent. 

They are determined that one day Julia, in the tradition of the Pallister women, would wear the historic pearl dress for her wedding. 

The man she had always loved was her childhood friend, Christopher Wren. The man to whom fate directed her was one of the hated enemy…

But Julia, torn between these two loves, surviving the Puritan regime, the plague, the Great Fire of London, despairs at the memory of the legacy of the pearl encrusted gown. 

Will she be able to protect and even wear the prized heirloom?
