Publisher’s Description:

Can what starts out as a marriage based on lies and Hugh’s need to save Amelia from a dastardly scoundrel end in love?

Hugh Margolis, Duke of Brighthollow, has been keeping a secret that eats him up inside. His beloved sister was seduced and nearly destroyed by a wicked man. The trauma sent her into exile and to protect her reputation, he never did anything about it. But now the ‘gentleman’ is back in Society and recently engaged to another lady.

Lady Amelia Quinton cannot believe her luck. After a whirlwind courtship, she has just become engaged and now she’s looking forward to a true love match. Only all her plans come to a screeching halt when her father announces she is now to marry the Duke of Brighthollow because he owns her father’s debts.

Amelia is horrified, for Hugh is nothing like the sweet and gentle boy she wanted to marry. But once their vows are said, passions flare and she begins to know the man better. Little by little, both their walls come down and feelings grow. Until she finds out he lied. Will Hugh ever tell her the truth and will it even matter by the time it’s all said and done?

Length: Full length novel
Heat Level: The kind to write home about!

This book is part of a series (The 1797 Club), but can be read as a standalone book.

My Thoughts:

I can hardly believe that this wonderful series is soon coming to an end. There are only two more books after this one and they have all been compelling reads.
This one starts with a bit of a different slant on the relationship between our couple. Amelia is certain she is in love. In fact she has become secretly betrothed.

Hugh is not her intended but with the help of her distraught father he soon replaces that man.

Amelia is certain that she can never be happy with her replacement groom but soon finds herself attracted to and then falling in love with him.

Can what starts out as a marriage based on lies and Hugh’s need to save Amelia from a dastardly scoundrel end in love or will the lies and deception end their relationship?

This book was so good that I couldn’t put it down.
I gave it 4.9 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 4.5 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy is well written and sexy.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the author/publisher to read and review.This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

About The Author:

USA Today Bestselling author Jess Michaels likes geeky stuff, Vanilla Coke Zero, anythingJesse-Petersen coconut, cheese, fluffy cats, smooth cats, any cats, many dogs and people who care about the welfare of their fellow humans. She watches too many daytime court shows, but just enough Bob’s Burgers. She is lucky enough to be married to her favorite person in the world and live in a beautiful home on a golf course lake in Northern Arizona.

When she’s not obsessively checking her steps on Fitbit or trying out new flavors of Greek yogurt, she writes historical romances with smoking hot alpha males and sassy ladies who do anything but wait to get what they want. She has written for numerous publishers and is now fully indie and loving every moment of it (well, almost every moment).

Jess always loves to hear from readers!

Publisher’s Description:

Destiny throws her back in time. Can love make her stay?

Caroline Sutton doesn’t belong here.

Not in the Highlands, and certainly not in the fourteenth century.

Headstrong Caroline hopes an adventure will ease the pain of her parents’ deaths. One minute, she’s standing at the edge of a waterfall, daring her two sisters to jump with her. The next, she wakes up on the shores of a Scottish loch—600 years in the past. She’s determined to return to her sisters and her own time, but Callum, the rugged Highland Laird who discovers her, has other ideas. When heat flares between them, all Caroline’s plans are thrown into jeopardy, but if she gives in to her blazing desire, she may never want to leave the past behind.

Laird Callum MacMoran is in a bind. He has inherited a clan feud with no end in sight. When he comes across a strange yet strikingly beautiful woman on enemy lands, he thinks to use her as a bargaining chip to end the bloodshed. Little does he know this odd lass is more than she seems, and falling for her will threaten the peace he has worked so long to build. Torn between responsibility to his clan and his growing feelings for Caroline, can he love her enough to let her go? Or will fate decide their futures for them?

The Enchanted Falls Trilogy follows three sisters

as they find love after falling through time.

Each book can be read as a stand-alone, but the stories are linked.

Beneath a Highland Moon:
A Scottish Historical Romance
(The Highland Moon Series, #1)
by Gwyn Brodie


After her clan’s castle falls under siege, the fair-haired Lady Jillian MacRae finds a way to escape with her four-year-old brother, seeking help from the handsome Kade MacLachlan, laird, and master of Ravenskull Castle. Four years earlier their love had been fierce—until her father betrothed her to another man, who later ended up dead. Now, it is Kade she turns to for help in regaining control of her own castle from the wicked man who has taken over and intends to marry her. Once she is again face-to-face with Kade, she realizes the love she thought she’d put aside is alive and thriving.

Kade is speechless when the beautiful Jillian offers herself to him in exchange for protecting her young brother and banishing the intruders from her castle—an offer he is more than willing to accept. He has no intention of allowing her to slip through his fingers again. And when her life hangs in the balance, he will not let anything—or anyone—stop him from saving her, even as his own life dangles by a thread.
