Synopsis:

615471181Charlotte Butterworth may be on her first London season, but she already knows she will never marry. Nothing interests her as much as numbers, and numbers seem to be of absolutely no interest to anyone else. And then there’s…the secret.

Callum Montgomery, Duke of Vernon, can marry the best. He’s handsome and charming and perfect. In fact, he’s been betrothed to the darling of the ton since he was seven, even if he does keep on putting off the wedding. 

When the roguish Duke of Vernon gains possession of some terrible, utterly shocking news about Charlotte, Charlotte needs to act quickly to keep the duke from revealing her secret.

My Thoughts:

42591490_669572953423830_200738426293583872_n

We first met this couple at the end of Don’t Tie The Knot, Hamish and Georgiana’s story. Now we get to see how Charlotte and Callum met and came to wed.
It is an interesting story but by no means a sweet/clean novella so if that is what you are looking for steer clear.
Most of the books I have read by this author contain little or no intimate scenes. This one isn’t like that. The intimacy is somewhat graphic and heated.
I liked this short read of less than 200 pages.
I gave it 4.4 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3 (warm) of 5 flames. 
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book to read. This in no wat affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Bound to a man more than twice her age in exchange for the price of her uncle’s ransom, Mhàiri Burns is desperate to avoid the match. Rather than simply await her fate, she sets out in a snow storm to seek a mysterious brooch rumored to be the answer to her prayers. Though it is the season for peace and goodwill, her uncle will perish at the hands of the English if Mhàiri cannot rescue him by the end of Yuletide.

Michaell Kerr has loved Mhàiri since they were children. Discovering Mhàiri’s grandfather has pledged her to another man sets Michaell in a race against time to find a way to break the betrothal—and help Mhàiri save her uncle.

What Mhàiri and Michaell receive this Yuletide season could prove more than thehad ever dreamed.

Synopsis:

Wolf_Teaser-300x300Logan Ambrose has endured a tortured existence. After learning how to fend for himself at a young age, he eventually amassed power and wealth. His fortune came at an extreme cost, as rising from poverty often does. Branded, he wears his sins on his marred flesh. Each scar represents a past he doesn’t wish to remember, the ruthless man he holds at bay, the tortured soul who would do anything to survive. 

Bruised, battered and bloodied, Arabella Sutton is a woman lost. With no recollection of who she is or what terrors she suffered, she stumbles onto the imposing Winterthorne estate running from those who hunt her, haunted by the memory of her bloodied hands holding a blade and wearing a bracelet monogrammed with the initial S. 

When she stumbles into Logan’s arms, he recognizes her instantly. She is one of two women he once knew: Arabella or her twin sister, Sybil. One he dared to love years ago, though he now despises them equally. Logan recognizes her bracelet as belonging to Sybil … the last woman he wished to see. 

While Arabella must overcome the loss of her memories, she is drawn to the brooding and menacing master of Winterthorne who knows much more about her past than he is willing to admit. Meanwhile, Logan is assailed with memories of his lost love while offering protection to the woman he believes to be her vicious twin, the woman who once reveled in making his life miserable, all the while fighting against the strong attraction that pulls him towards his charge and the reminders of Arabella that she rekindles in his hardened heart. 

As Arabella pieces together her past, scandalous secrets come to light and Logan will stop at nothing to save his beloved from the dangerous machinations of her evil identical twin. Together, Logan and Arabella rekindle a romance they long thought extinguished. Meanwhile, they concoct a grand scheme to unmask Sybil and rescue Arabella from her sister’s misdeeds. 

Can they protect Arabella from peril and assure their future before it is too late?
