Synopsis:

Glittering jewels ~ A sumptuous ball ~ A daring theft.

London, 1851 – Cecilia Paring is having second thoughts…
Cecilia has serious reservations about marrying her fiancé, Devin Montlake. Gone is the boy who could capture her heart with a word or a glance and in his place is a man who has made it clear that to be a proper barrister’s wife, the exciting and impulsive Cecilia must change.

Devin Montlake has his life planned out…
Although Devin loves his orderly life as a barrister, he’s determined to follow his roadmap and become a judge. His biggest obstacle seems to be convincing his headstrong fiancée to behave with a modicum of propriety.

And then everything goes wrong…
When the family jewels are stolen the night before they are to be auctioned, Devin is framed for the crime. Unfortunately, adhering to society’s rules won’t solve this particular problem. Devin has to rely on the inventiveness of his irrepressible fiancée to catch the thief.

Note from the author:
This novella offers you a taste of my writing style. My books aren’t edgy or stomach-churning. If you’re looking for something dark and twisty, go elsewhere. If you’re looking for something to take your mind off the world for a while and leave you feeling a bit better about life, then this is the novella for you!

+ This is not a cliffhanger. Each story’s hero and heroine have their own complete romance and HEA (happily ever after). Characters from the books will reappear throughout the series but in supplementary roles.

++ The romance scenes in this story are explicit, but not frequent.

My Thoughts:

Cecilia Paring is having second thoughts…
Cecilia has serious reservations about marrying her fiancé, Devin Montlake. What happened to the boy who captured her heat? Is he still a part of this ambitious young man?
Although Devin is enamoured with his orderly life as a barrister, he’s determined to follow his dreams to become a judge. His biggest obstacle seems to be convincing Cecilia to behave with at least a small amount of propriety.
When it appears that Devin is not at all what he seems, but is instead a thief but Cecilia and her precocious fifteen year old sister seem to be the only ones who believe he is innocent.
This romance contains a bit of slapstick comedy and is a good read by this new to me author.
I received a complimentary copy of this book via Hidden gems to read and discovered I already owed a copy and it was in my Kindle archives.
I gave this book 4.25 of five stars for storyline and characterization. The only intimacy is in the last chapter after the wedding

About The Author:

Edmondson_2829RP-cropped-squareSheridan grew up with a mother who was an artist and art therapist, and a father who was an engineer who could fix or build just about anything. Despite naming their daughter Sheridan because they thought it might someday look great on the cover of a book, Sheridan’s parents urged her in a more practical direction when she attended college. She earned a bachelor of science degree in computer science with a minor in English.

She grew up outside of Dayton, Ohio and now lives in Sewickley, near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Sheridan is a member of Romance Writers of America© and is the former President and co-founder of Three Rivers Romance Writers in Pittsburgh (an RWA chapter).

Along with writing novels, Sheridan has worked as a program manager, business analyst, web designer, database analyst, and computer programmer.

Sheridan’s home sits atop of what some might call mountain situated northwest of Pittsburgh along the Ohio River. Her pets love the location for its abundant wildlife, and she loves it for the stupendous view.

Synopsis:

“Delightful, dazzling, and oh-so delicious.” ~Cheryl Bolen, NYT Bestselling Author

Faced with an impossible choice, could you devastate someone you love?

Caution: This book contains a philandering hero with a heart of gold, a fearless heroine adamant she’ll decide her own destiny, a passel of roguish dukes and the daring damsels determined not to be seduced by them, and unforeseen twists that will keep you turning page after page.

Marriage—an unpleasant obligation
A troublesome addendum to his father’s will requires Victor, Duke of Sutcliffe to marry before his twenty-seventh birthday. That doesn’t mean he intends to alter his pleasure-seeking lifestyle. Mere weeks before he must wed, he ventures home, intent on finding the most biddable, forgettable miss in all of Essex. Except the first woman he encounters stirs far more than his interest, and Theadosia Brentwood is anything but unremarkable or dowdy.

Marriage—an impossible choice
Against her better judgement, and despite her father promising her hand to a man she detests, Theadosia clandestinely meets with Victor. Though she’s far beneath his station and aware he must marry soon, she can’t deny her growing fascination. When Victor unexpectedly proposes, Thea must make an unbearable decision—refuse to marry her father’s pick and elope with Victor, who wouldn’t wed at all except to save his fortune. If she does, her betrothed will reveal a scandalous secret, sending her father to prison and rendering her sister and mother homeless.

Buy this page-turning book for an emotional, entertaining, and romantic Regency England adventure you won’t want to put down.

Though this book is part of a series, it can easily be read as a stand-alone novel.

Synopsis:

She believes in duty, not love….
As the illegitimate sister of the Duke of Raven, Emily knows only too well how society judges a woman like her, and what a debt of gratitude she owes her family. She also knows the vital importance of maintaining independence, and how cruel fate can eclipse good intentions anytime. Certainly she’s not going to let her head or heart get fooled by the devilishly annoying Cambridge Sinclair, her family’s protector, and London’s notorious rake… who also happened to save her life… more than once.

He’s a reformed rake seeking redemption….
Cam has been intrigued by the mysterious Miss Emily Tolly for years, even though theirs is a turbulent relationship. With her family and others, she’s shy and timid, but with him, she’s anything but. He knows this kitten has claws beneath the quiet exterior and a whole lot of other secrets she’s hiding. But her passion and intelligence draw him irresistibly to her, so when he’s given the opportunity to rescue her once again, he grabs it with both hands. This rescue, though, takes the form of a hastily arranged marriage, which Cam enters into willingly for her sake and her family’s. What he doesn’t count on is the closer he and Emily get, the stronger their passion burns, and Cam finds himself wanting not just her body, but her heart too.

A destiny written in the stars
It was meant to be a dutiful betrothal from the start, but it soon becomes something more. As Emily sees the real man beneath the roguish reputation, her carefully guarded heart begins to believe and hope. Dare she trust the one man who could destroy her?

*All books in this series are standalone stories with an HEA.
