Publisher’s Description:

Tell Me What You Want

New to London society and rather. . .awkward. . .Lady Grace Belmont would just as soon hide behind the palm trees as dance with a man she doesn’t know. But Baron Dawson is on the hunt for a wife. Grace’s generous curves and remarkable height do not intimidate him. In fact, it would be more accurate to describe his reaction to the charming newcomer as lust.

Before Grace can so much as gather her thoughts, she finds herself in his arms, committing one shocking impropriety after another. The Baron’s devilish attractiveness–to say nothing of his splendid muscles–is simply impossible to resist. Her beloved aunt and chaperone advises patience, but Grace is not about to listen. The handsome baron is whispering such delightful things in her ear. . .

“Let’s all have a laugh and really enjoy reading !”

Publisher’s Description:

51Q0XA6rcCLWelcome to the charming, fatefully named village of Loves Bridge, where a woman destined for spinsterhood can live a life of her own choosing—or fall unexpectedly, madly in love…

Miss Isabelle Catherine Hutting would rather be lounging in the library than circling the ballroom in search of a husband any day. So when Cat hears that the town’s infamous Spinster House is open for a new resident, she jumps at the chance to put all this marriage business behind her. But first she must make arrangements with her prospective landlord, Marcus, the Duke of Hart—the most handsome man she’s ever seen, and the only man who’s ever impressed her in the least…

With her wit, independent spirit, and not least of all her beauty, Marcus can’t help but be stirred by Cat. It’s terribly unfortunate he’s not looking to marry, given the centuries-old curse that left his family with the Spinster House to begin with. No duke shall live to see his heir’s birth. But is there a chance the curse could be broken—in true fairy-tale fashion—by an act of true love? The race to Happily Ever After is about to begin…

My Thoughts:

I love Sally MacKenzie books in general.

When I saw this one on Net Galley I couldn’t resist.

It did not disappoint. As usual the characters were very engaging and well developed. I love historical romance in general but have found Ms. MacKenzie’s works not only to be good but very funny at times too.

If you like your historical romance to not only be engaging but also to make you laugh, I encourage you to read those written by this author.

They are well worth your time.

I gave this book 4.5 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5 flames. The heat in this series is palpable and an engaging part of the series in general.

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 reviewed voluntarily.

The Spinster House Series:

Welcome to the charming, fatefully named village of Loves Bridge, where a woman destined for spinsterhood can live a life of her own choosing—or fall unexpectedly, madly in love. Here you’ll find a house set aside for one lucky spinster, a duke laboring under a family curse, and a mysterious, meddling calico cat named Poppy.

Publisher’s Description:

Fate reaches across time to bring them together. Can love bridge their differences?

Allison Sutton isn’t the sort to take risks. She’s a nurse, so she’s seen exactly where risk-taking can lead. But she leaves her comfort zone to visit Scotland with her sisters, and then takes a further leap of faith when one of them insists they jump from a waterfall that’s supposedly enchanted. To her amazement, the jump brings her back in time, to the fourteenth century, and she comes face to face with a strapping Highlander who looks as if he’s stepped out of her fantasies.

After his brother betrayed him, Brann MacKay has gone out of his way to display his prowess. Which makes it all the more embarrassing when he saves a slip of a lass from a crowd of men, only to earn a kick to the bollocks for his efforts. Even so, Brann is taken with the brash beauty. Allison is like no lass he’s ever met, and he quickly realizes why. She emerged from the enchanted pool on his land. She wishes to return to her own world, but her knowledge of healing makes her indispensable to his people—and he quickly realizes she is indispensable to him. 

Being with Brann makes Allison reconsider her stance on risks, but can a modern woman be happy with a medieval man?

This is the third in the Enchanted Falls Trilogy.

Publisher’s Description:

Finding a worthy husband should be simple for three beautiful debutantes in Regency pro_pbid_4063679London. But the Somerset sisters have a way of making it delightfully complicated . . .

 Violet Somerset has always preferred a library to a ballroom, but to please her grandmother she agreed to one London season. With nothing to show for it but heartbreak, she’s reconciled to spinsterhood. Until a notorious rogue known as the Devil of Dare requests an introduction to her timid, gentle youngest sister, Hyacinth. Violet will do anything to stop the match—even if it means posing as Hyacinth herself . . .

 Nicholas Balfour, the Earl of Dare, is enjoying the life of a rake far too much to take a wife. But he must keep his promise to his grandmother. He’ll simply choose the meekest bride he can find, install her at his estate, then carry on as before. Hyacinth sounds perfect—until he discovers that her sweet demeanor hides the tongue of a viper and the mind of a bluestocking . . .

 As Violet’s ruse threatens to unravel, however, she may find the tables turned. Soon she may have no choice but to tolerate her handsome fiancée—or fall in love with him . . .

My Thoughts:

This book is a wonderful Regency read. It has everything this reader expects from Anna Bradley and more.
Nicholas Balfour, the Earl of Dare has promised his Grandmother that he will marry this season even though it’s the last thing he wants until he spies Hyacinth Somerset at a party where she is entertaining the other guests on the pianoforte. He calls on Miss Somerset the next day even though the two have yet to be properly introduced. Instead of Hyacinth he gets Violet, the slightly older bluestocking sister.

Violet engages in a ruse thinking Nicholas will simply go away after encountering her eccentric ways. But the Earl of Dare is not so easily frightened away.

The tables turned on her Violet finds herself drawn to the rogue and he to her. But Nicholas still thinks she is Hyacinth.

How will this amusing, humorous and convoluted tale end?
Don’t miss this second book in The Somerset Sisters series by author Anna Bradley. It is a well written and plotted book worthy of any regency romance fan’s time.

I gave this book 4.95 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 4.25 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy is hot but held off on until after the nuptials.
This book starts out as a laugh a minute and progresses into a poignant engaging story.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book via Netgalley to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
