Synopsis:

To prove herself, she’ll brave anything. To protect her, he’ll risk everything.

As the only woman in King Robert the Bruce’s Bodyguard Corps, Mairin Mackenzie is eager to prove herself. When the King proposes a mission to sow the seeds of civil war in England, Mairin jumps at the chance, even though returning there means confronting the nightmarish trauma of her past. But to her frustration, the Bruce decides to send a second bodyguard with her—Niall, the only Englishman in the Corps. Although Niall kindles a surprising heat within her, Mairin has sworn to hate the English until the day she dies. When she is faced with a chance at personal vengeance, can she trust in her strength, even if it means ignoring what’s in her heart?

Niall Beaumore fears this mission will be his undoing. After six long years in the Bruce’s Corps, this is his best chance to show how deep his allegiance to Scotland runs. Yet being paired with Mairin is far more dangerous than anything he’s faced before. From the moment he laid eyes on her, Niall has been captivated by the fire behind Mairin’s dove-gray gaze. After failing to protect those he cares about once before, he vows never to let Mairin come to harm. But when duty clashes with desire, they’ll both be forced to choose between an unexpected love and the very fate of Scotland’s freedom.

Synopsis:

A shadowed past…

To avoid questions about his shameful secret, Thorolf has carefully constructed a life as a roving shipbuilder. But when entrancing Pict thrall Bridget falls into Thorolf’s arms begging for help, Thorolf cannot resist the golden-haired beauty’s pleas. He risks his life to spirit her safely back to her homeland, despite vowing never to return to Pictland. Now he must choose between guarding the truth of his past or giving his heart to the brave woman who heals him with her merest touch.

A fated future…

After being shunned by her people for possessing the gift of Touch, Bridget resigns herself to a solitary life on the outskirts of her village. When Viking raiders capture her and deliver her to their cruel Jarl, she fears that this new nightmare may never end. Yet within Thorolf’s protective embrace, Bridget lets herself hope for not only the shelter his strong arms promise, but also the acceptance her own people denied her. But when the truth of both of their pasts comes to light, will fate rip them apart forever?

Synopsis:

Return to the regency countryside for a summer fling that will melt your heart in the brand-new novel in Heather Boyd’s Saints and Sinners series.

Jaded by the experience of dodging fortune hunters during her first season, Lady Jessica Westfall returns home to the estate she loves expecting peace…until the biggest fortune hunter of all follows her from London. To keep Lord James at bay, Jessica enlists the aid of her neighbor, Gideon. As her lifelong friend, Giddy can be trusted to help thwart James’ pursuit, while also satisfying Jessica’s budding interest in things of an intimate nature…things like the kisses she’d missed out on during her season.

Gideon Whitfield’s quiet bachelorhood is interrupted by the arrival of a marriage-minded widow to the nearby village, with her sights set on him as her savior. But the greater threat to his peace proves to be his dear friend’s daughter, Lady Jessica Westfall. Gideon has always adored Jessica, and had expected the headstrong beauty to marry well in her first season. When she comes to him for help avoiding the unwanted advances of a fortune hunter, and also lessons in love—he may prove utterly incapable of helping her while guarding his own heart in the process.

My Thoughts:

A lack of chemistry between hero and heroine.

I have read and enjoyed other books by this author including the first book of this series but this one frankly, disappointed me.
The age difference was not a problem. My own maternal grandparents were much more than a decade apart in age.
For some reason there was a lack of intimacy between our heroine and hero. I know most people of this era would not have engaged in pre-marital relations but a little bit of spice is expected in this type of book.
It seemed that Gideon found it difficult to even kiss Jessica. There was just no obvious chemistry with these two.
I gave this book 2.75 of 5.0 stars (rounded up to 3.0 stars) for storyline and character development and a low sensual rating of 2 of 5 flames.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book by invitation to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
