Publisher’s Description:

Kenzie Jacobs is fascinated by a portrait of the roguish Highlander, Black Ben, which hangs in her ancestral home. There’s a mystery surrounding his death, and Kenzie longs to solve it by traveling through time to 17th century Scotland—and perhaps meet the gorgeous laird who haunts her dreams. 

Black Ben, Laird of Ross, suited his dark name more than ever since his wife died in childbirth. He has vowed never to marry again. But Kenzie is an intoxicating elixir and even more potent than whiskey. As confusing and crazy as she may seem, he can’t get her out of his system. But there’s no way they can ever work, as she does not fit into his plans. 

Fate has brought them together, and Ben can’t stop Kenzie from returning to her time, though he would do anything–except marry her–to keep her with him. Kenzie has a life to get back to but leaving her favorite, though infuriating, Highlander behind, might be the toughest thing she’ll ever have to do.

My Thoughts:

I have now read both books that have been written in this series.

They are both time travel romances but are unrelated as far as storyline, but they do contain at least one character in common.

They are standalone titles and you do not need to read them in order to get the full enjoyment of each one.

Kenzie Jacobs is drawn to a portrait that hangs in her ancestral home of the Highlander Black Ben. There isn’t much known about the roguish man as he disappeared and no one knew what happened to him.

Kenzie has an unusual ability to travel through time to an appointed destination. So due to her fascination with Ben she decides to travel back to his time to find out for herself what happened to the roguish highlander.
Never did she imagine that she would fall in love with him and he with her.
What can this mutual attraction lead to?

I gave this book a 4.25 of 5.0 star rating for characterization and storyline. It gets a sensual rating of 4 of 5 flames. These two can not keep their hands off each other once their attraction is perceived by the other.

I received a complimentary digital ARC from both the Author, via an Arc sent directly to my kindle and the publisher via NetGalley. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

A Highlander’s vow…

Scottish spy Gerard MacMasters never expected to be playing bodyguard in his mission to catch a killer.

Stunning English beauty, Lady Evelyn Hunt, has witnessed a merciless assassin’s escape—now, she’s in danger, and it’s up to him to keep her alive. Yet, he is drawn to the tempting woman. Passion flares, but he knows better than to fall for her. He’s already lost one woman he loved—never again will he put his heart on the line.

She shields her heart…

After a crushing betrayal at the altar, Lady Evelyn wants nothing to do with love. Kissing a gorgeous rogue is one thing, but surrendering her heart is another matter. When she stumbles upon a mysterious crime, nothing prepares her for the dashing Scot who charges into her life. The hot-blooded Highlander may be her hero—or her undoing.

My Thoughts:

This well written second book in the new Highland Hearts Series that ties in well with the Her Majesty’s Most Secret Service Series but is not actually part of it. It was at times difficult to put down but sometimes it was also a difficult read.

The beginning was fast paced but it bogged down around the middle. It picked back up near the end and was an overall enjoyable read.

It is easily read as a standalone title even though it is part of a series.

Lady Evelyn has a habit of turning innocent things into scandal. Her betrothed left her at the alter after another man claimed she had been intimate with him. This was a lie but it ruined her none the less. Now, as she travels with a group of ladies to attend the wedding of her friend she accidentally stumbles upon a crime and the beginning of an unexpected relationship with a dashing Scottish Spy who intends to protect her at all costs.

Gerard has lost the woman he loves once because of his vocation as a spy. He wants nothing to do with love now, but his undeniable attraction to Evelyn and his vow to keep her safe from the dangerous assassin brings them together no matter what he wants.

Will Gerard be able to keep his vow to keep Evelyn safe? Will Evelyn survive her unexpected witnessing of this crime and the possession of the very important clue?

I gave this story 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5.0 flames.

The intimacy between our hero and heroine needs no explanation. It is both sweet and heated at once.

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:

A Lady Gone Rogue:

Miss Emmaline Trent is notorious. And she loves it. Once, she was a sweet young lady, eager to please all around her. But a single act of a stranger ruined her reputation and the young man she so desperately loved rejected her and her “sins”. But when the truth is revealed, it is too late and she has chosen to embrace her scandalous state. After years in France, Emmaline returns to London, determined to show the man she so deeply loved she has not been crushed by him or fortune’s wheel.

A Rogue of a Lord:

Lord Edward Hart will never forgive himself. After believing horrific lies about the only woman he has ever loved, he condemns himself to the darkness. Despite the fact that he longs for Emmaline with every fiber of his being, he knows he will never deserve her love again.

But a chance of fate crashes these two lovers back together and their passion is once again fanned aflame. Can they allow themselves to find happiness or will they condemn themselves to a life without love?

My Thoughts:

This short book is a twist on second chance romance.
Our heroine was once left at the alter by the only man she has ever loved, Lord Edward Hart.

Emmaline decided when she was branded a fallen woman to live her life as she preferred becoming the owner of a theater and acting on the stage.

Edward regrets his past actions and because of them he has embraced the dark side of life.

Will these two find their way back to the love they once shared or condemn themselves to a life without love?

I gave this short novel which is book #6 of this series 4.45 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 4 of 5 flames. The intimacy between our hero and heroine leads to the discovery that our heroine’s besmirched character was indeed exaggerated.

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