Book 4

Seasons of Fortitude Series

Passion ignites and the sparks fly when a border lord and a noblewoman skilled at the forge are brought together under unusual circumstances.

Lady Winter has always been curious since childhood and even though she is a noblewoman, she has learned from the best blacksmith to be skilled at the forge. While at her sister’s wedding in Ravenscar, she decides to stay and help the blacksmith who trained her. His eyesight is failing and although he was once the best blacksmith in all England, now he is doomed without Winter’s help. The late lord Ravenscar made a deal with Sir Martin de Grey of Northumberland. The blacksmith is to forge a sword from the finest Damascus steel. But to insure that Lord de Grey collects on his deal, he’s taken the blacksmith’s son in exchange.

Sir Martin de Grey arrives in Ravenscar to collect his sword. He needs it to go up against his enemy – Clan Dunbar in an age-old feud. Martin’s brother is imprisoned and he will do anything to save him. But when he discovers his sword is not ready and the man he made the deal with is dead, he takes drastic measures. He brings the blacksmith and his daughter to Castle Heaton to finish forging the sword. While there, he finds himself immensely attracted to the beautiful commoner’s daughter.

Winter finds herself in a predicament. Sir Martin de Grey has mistaken her for the blacksmith’s daughter since she was working in the forge. Now, to tell him the truth would risk her friend never seeing his son again.

Sparks will fly when the truth is revealed and circumstances turn lovers against each other. But with passion hotter than the fires of the forge between Winter and Martin, can something that started as lust turn into an undying love between them?

(This is the last book of the series. It is best to read the Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series, as well as books 1-3 of the Seasons of Fortitude Series first, however, each book stands alone.)

42770363Join the MacKinnon clan for a magical reunion, bringing together old friends and new for a Yuletide never to be forgotten.

Malcom MacKinnon has been gone from Chreagach Mhor
for more than ten years. He’s never met the youngest MacKinnon, but while he’s looking forward to their first meeting, Alexander Ailbeart MacKinnon isn’t quite as enthusiastic to meet the brother who, in his eyes, abandoned their clan. Having received word Malcom and his new wife are on the way, he’s on his heels now, making sure their home is safeguarded from forces that threaten his family’s joy. Will the brothers finally come together after so long?

This short story can be read as a stand-alone but will make more sense if read after reading THE KING’S FAVORITE in the Daughters of Avalon series.

Richard Hill, the Earl of Windermere, might desperately require a wife and heir, but thoughts of duty fly from his mind when he rescues Esme, Lady Heathcote, from the embarrassment of a failed affair. They usually never agree about anything. He’s never even kissed the vexing widow. But when the opportunity arises to whisk her away for a no-strings-attached rendezvous, Richard can’t imagine a better way to spend a moonlit evening.

Esme has never lacked for admirers, but having Lord Windermere’s company goes a long way to ease the pain of losing her suddenly betrothed lover. And when Windermere suggests an affair, Esme is intrigued by the blazing-hot connection even while knowing their relationship has no future beyond his house party.

But as with any temptation, it’s a bargain they’ll soon regret.

Publisher’s Description:

Married by MoonlightNearly twenty, Anna Beasley despairs of ever finding a husband. Eligible bachelors seem to avoid the stuttering, blushing debutante in favor of her bolder, more adventurous friends. Much to the delight of her father, who’s determined to marry her off to his godson, Lord Carmichael, despite Anna’s refusal. Her lifelong nemesis, Carmichael has kissed half the young women in London.

Surely Carmichael’s friend, Lord Sorenson, newly arrived in Town, is cut from the same cloth. Anna decides to stay away from him…despite his wicked smile that makes her quiver.

Gilbert Bowen, Earl of Sorenson, had planned to live out his days as a country vicar. But when his old friend Carmichael sends a desperate plea for help, he can’t say no. There’s a murderer among the ton—and every death leads back to Carmichael. Catching a killer during the social season is difficult enough…and then Anna catches his eye. The shy beauty is a distraction he can ill afford but scarcely resist.

When the pair are caught in a compromising position, Sorenson needs little convincing to claim her, especially if it keeps Anna out of harm’s way. But with as many twists and turns as there are suspects, this case may find no one safe—especially when the killer is closer to home than they ever dreamed.


My Thoughts:

This book is filled with mystery, intrigue with a dash of love for good measure.

This well written regency title is much more of a murder mystery than a love story but the author has managed to weave a love story into this sometimes humorous book.

Why does the trail of the murderer seem to lead back to Anna’s very good friend and nemesis, Carmichael? Is he actually the murderer or is the fiend someone connected to him?

Gilbert Bowen knows in his soul that Carmichael isn’t capable of these fiendish murders. While carrying out his investigation he falls for Anna, but she is certain he is just like Carmichael, a rogue to his very core.

Will a scandal be the trigger that tumbled this unlikely couple into a lasting love? After all Gilbert has compromised Anna. Will their witnesses keep their secret or will they be forced into a marriage neither seems at first to want.

I adored this sometimes humorous and baffling murder mystery and couldn’t put it down. Although part of a series it stands on it’s own and can easily be read as a standalone. It does, however leave you wanting more. There are certainly characters that deserve their own story.

I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5.0 flames. I felt the intimacy necessary but it left much more to be desired.

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

For years, I have wanted to write a Christmas romance. Unfortunately, I have never squeezed a Christmas novel into my schedule. I didn’t want this year to pass without something I could offer my fans.

This year–for only the Christmas season–I am offering three of my books for a bargain.

Fragmented, the first book of Boston’s Crimes of Passion series, is a stand-alone romantic suspense.
Past of Shadows, the first book of The Three Realms, is a high fantasy series. This is an ongoing series.
Belle of Charleston, the first book of Southern Legacy, is a serial historical romance. This is a serial! The books have cliffhangers. Do not begin if you don’t want to become addicted to the series! Southern Legacy consists of four books–Belle of Charleston, Shadows of Magnolia, Born to Be Brothers and The Sun Will Rise.

I couldn’t be more excited about introducing you to my different genre series. I hope you enjoy these books as much as I enjoyed writing them.

I am, also, thrilled to announce I am releasing a new series, Scream for the Camera, Book One in Boston’s Crimes of Horror. You can preorder Scream for the Camera here on Amazon.

Happy Reading. Enjoy the holidays!

Belle of Charleston, Book One Southern Legacy Serial!
Read and reviewed Dec. 15. 2014
In a world of pageantry and show, the Montgomery family accepts the way of life that has been antebellum Charleston for over a hundred years.
Two cousins, the handsome and debonair, Wade Montgomery and the bold and brooding Cullen Smythe, were born to be brothers. Raised as Southern gentlemen,their character could never be questioned–loyalty, honor, duty to one’s country, God and family.
It was the tie that binds until…their bond is threatened, not only by the cry for secession but by a woman–Josephine Buchanan Wright.


Set against the backdrop of Antebellum Charleston with the martial clash of brother against brother looming on the horizon–here is an absorbing, tantalizing saga of life during one of our country’s most turbulent times–Southern Legacy Series.
Josephine Buchanan Wright is a dutiful, southern belle. Her future seems fated to the two Montgomerys cousins, the handsome and debonair, Wade Montgomery and the bold and brooding Cullen Symthe. You should read to find out how all she has placed her faith in falls apart.

My Thoughts:

Reviewed at Amazon; December 15, 2014
This book is set in pre Civil War Charleston, SC. Being born and raised in SC I was drawn to this book. I used to read a great deal of Civil War period romance, but had not read any in several years. My first thought was that this one had ended abruptly but I then discovered this is a saga that will continue in 3 more books due out early next year.
The first released now in December, 2014, Belle of Charleston and in  January 2015, Shadows of Magnolia, book #2 will release.
The final two are due to release April and May 2015, Born to Be Brothers and The Sun Will Rise. I am looking forward to the other 3 installments now that I know the story has not ended. I feel these will most definitely need to be read in order. They are not stand alone stories.
I received a free copy of this book from Reading Deals Review Club in order to leave an honest review.
