The Matchmaker:

Lady Philippa Willoughby is known for hosting many gatherings and celebrations at the castle. Somewhat meddlesome at times, she has taken it upon herself to play matchmaker to the villagers. This, along with her carefree ways, causes her to be the brunt of gossip that she is an improper lady. When her father betroths her to a Frenchman she has never met, she rebels, planning on finding a match for herself at her upcoming St. Valentine’s Day dance.

The Novice:

Lord Etienne de Beynac, the youngest of six boys, has managed to disgrace his family with his wild ways. When his father and brothers disown him he has no choice but to agree to his father’s terms. He joins a monastery as a novice across the channel, in England.

Etienne gets one last chance for redemption before he finalizes his vows to live the rest of his life as a monk. As a favor to his brother, he goes to Grimsthorpe Castle to spy on his brother’s betrothed, Lady Philippa. He needs to find out if she is a proper lady with whom his family can align. But once there, he discovers a strong attraction to Lady Philippa that threatens his plans to be a monk.

Will a St. Valentine’s Day dance bring two outcasts together in love? And will a man slated for a life of celibacy and poverty be able to put down the rosary and pick up the sword to fight for the woman he loves?



My Thoughts:

Lady Philippa Willoughby is known for her matchmaking skills. Now can she find a match for herself?
Lord Etienne de Beynac, the youngest of six boys, has managed to disgrace his family with his wild ways. His antics have landed him in a monastery as a novice across the channel, in England.
He is not monk material but he knew this all along.

This is a delightfully funny Valentines romance. Like many of Elizabeth Rose’s books you will find yourself laughing out loud.

I gave this book 4.4 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization.
I received a complimentary copy of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Ruby de Burgh is the first born of the four daughters of Earl Blackpool. They were all named after the stones in daggers, bought by their late mother regarding a superstition. Ruby acts more like the son her father always wanted, and nothing like a lady. And she is not pleased to find out her father has promised Lord Sheffield his choice of one of his daughter’s hands in marriage.

Lord Nyle of Sheffield needs a wife so he can carry on his secret mission for the king. However, after losing three wives in a matter of months, he is sure their deaths were not accidents as it seemed, but rather they were murdered. Now to catch the murderer that he believes to be inside his castle walls, he chooses a wife as bait who he knows can wield a sword and hold her own against any attacker.

Will murder and mayhem place a wedge between an unconventional wife and the Lord of Death, or bring them closer together as emotions are brought to the surface in Ruby – Book 1 of Daughters of the Dagger?

The Master of Ceremonies announces a great ball to be held on Valentine’s Day in the Upper Assembly Rooms of Bath.

Ladies of the highest rank—and some who wish they were—scheme, prepare, and compete to make best use of the opportunity.

Dukes, earls, tradesmen, and the occasional charlatan are alert to the possibilities as the event draws nigh.

But anything can happen in the magic of music and candlelight as couples dance, flirt, and open themselves to romantic possibilities. Problems and conflict may just fade away at a Valentine’s Day Ball.

Candles in the Dark, by Caroline Warfield. Doug Marsh and his candles bring light to many, none more than Esther. They may light the Assembly Rooms even as his love lights her life.
