Synopsis:

A beautiful debutante in Regency London seems destined to make a good match. But the Somerset sisters have made courtship and matrimony a deliciously scandalous affair . . .

Hyacinth Somerset’s debut is the most anticipated event of the season, as it will be the reclusive young lady’s first public appearance. But within moments of being asked to dance by a dashing stranger, Hyacinth calls him a murderer, then faints dead away! Now all the ton is a aflutter over Hyacinth’s baffling shun of their most intriguing newcomer—the wildly handsome Lachlan Ramsey . . .

Recently arrived from Scotland, Lachlan only wishes to claim his place in society to secure his sister’s future. When that is threatened by the accusations of a hapless slip of a girl, he will do anything protect his family. Yet it appears Hyacinth has only damaged her own hopes, inspiring the label of hysteric—and ultimately inspiring Lachlan to shelter her from harm. Now if only there were a defense for the surge of feeling he has every time Hyacinth turns her gaze his way. If only there were a way to make her his—while keeping the true secret in his past from destroying everything—and everyone—he cares about . . .

Publisher’s Description:

Two sought-after sisters, a slew of suitors—and a vow to hold out for true love. How many proposals will it take to get to “I do”—especially when the stakes are high . . .

There have been six suitors so far, all vying for the attention—and generous dowry—of the beautiful, elusive Eleanor Sutherland. What does this woman really want? Who has what it takes to melt the heart of the so-called Lady Ice? These are the questions Camden West keeps asking himself. But rather than wait for answers, Cam takes matters into his own hands . . . for he has a secret weapon.

Cam knows that Ellie’s sister, Charlotte, harbors a scandalous secret—one that could bring ruin to the Sutherland name. If Ellie marries him, Cam promises to keep mum. But is she willing to sacrifice her own happiness for her sister’s reputation?

To Ellie’s surprise, it becomes clear that Cam doesn’t need her money, nor is he interested in her status. Soon, what begins as a sham engagement transforms into something deeper, and more passionate, than Ellie could have imagined. Is it possible that all Cam truly wanted was her? And is that reason enough to say yes—or is handsome Cam hiding something else? Even for a lady in love, only the truth will do . . .

My Thoughts:

Only a very wise for her age young lady manages to see the truth.

Reviewed September 6, 2017

It’s been a while since I have read an Anna Bradley book but it won’t be long before I read another because I have the next in this series on my TBR shelf.
This book is exceptional! I enjoyed every minute of this sometimes frustrating story.
Cam wants revenge against the family of the man who fathered his younger half sister. Since that man is dead he’ll take that revenge by blackmailing Eleanor into marriage. Eleanor has sworn to only marry for love and despite her efforts to keep Cam at a distance, she falls for him.
Both are in love with each other but they fail to recognize the sentiment in one another.
Only a very wise for her age young lady manages to see the truth.
This pair most definitely belong together.
Will they wise up before this story ends tragically?
I gave this 0well written book 5.0 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a high sensual rating of 4 of 5 flames. Although it is long in coming when these two eventually come together it is one very hot scene.
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 read and reviewed voluntarily.

Synopsis:

temptinghismistressWhat could possibly induce a woman to follow in the footsteps of her mother and further sully her reputation by becoming a mistress?

Lilly Claremont is well used to being at the centre of gossip. Being the illegitimate child of a rich businessman never failed to titillate the gossips and while she cared little about the wagging tongues she never intended to reinforce their opinions of her by ruining herself completely.

But it seems Lord Hawksley is determined to make the fascinating Lilly his mistress…

Evan has no doubt her bold tongue and beautiful body could keep him entertained for some time. Captivated by her, he must find a way to burn through his desire for her. He cannot marry a woman of such social standing so why not make her his mistress?

After the murder of her father, Lilly is searching for answers and they lead her directly to Lord Hawksley. But will they also lead her to his bed…?

Lilly is determined never to follow in her mother’s footsteps. She would never become any man’s mistress or would she?
She is certain Lord Hawksley is the man who had her father killed but as she gets to know the man maybe she was wrong in her assumption.
This backwards romance with a bit of mystery is one I don’t know how I missed. This book was published in Nov. of 2014.
I am a Samantha Holt fan but I started reading her books after that date.
I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization. The characters and the intimacy in this books are well written and not to be missed.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Synopsis:

The final book in the #1 bestselling Regency romance series!
Lewis Knight left behind his life as the son of nobleman years ago. The rough, scarred man is quite content to use his brute force and bad reputation to help the Earl of Redmere with his smuggling—a ruse to aid the war effort. Knight doesn’t care too much about the reasons behind the subterfuge, so long as he gets paid.
And stays busy enough to forget his past for good.
That’s not so easy, however, when he’s forced to return home. And thanks to the earl’s meddling, he’s accompanied by the woman who plagues his thoughts far too often…
Louisa has been too busy running her inn to think too much about the dark, brooding Knight. Even if she does steal the occasional glance at those broad shoulders. However, when a man arrives in Cornwall with lifechanging news and Louisa’s inn is threatened, she must investigate. With Knight’s help, she digs into this stranger’s past and stirs up more danger than she thought possible.
Now that Knight is driven to protect her, the barriers between them feel harder than ever to keep in place. Somehow, she keeps working her way under his unyielding exterior. But Knight knows he’s not worthy of a woman like Louisa—not while his past shadows his every move.

My Thoughts:

This is the final book in this series and I have read them all.

Somehow, she worms her way under his rough exterior. But Knight knows he’s not worthy of a woman like Louisa—not while his past shadows his every move.
Samantha Holt writes enjoyable regency romance with just enough twists and turns to hold your interest. Some of the characters sometimes carry over from a previous book of the series but each one can be read as a standalone title.
I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for plot and character development. There is a small amount of intimacy in this book as in all of this author’s works.
