Synopsis:

In bestselling author Vanessa Kelly’s irresistible Clan Kendrick series, Christmas in the Highlands means family, celebration—and for one brother, the beginning of a passionate adventure…

Being thrown over by the man she expected to marry was humiliating enough. Now that Donella Haddon, grandniece of the Earl of Riddick, has also proven a failure as a nun, she has no choice but to return to her family’s estate. The brawny Highlander sent to escort her is brash, handsome, and the only thing standing between Donella and a gang of would-be kidnappers. But the scandal in her past can’t be so easily outrun…

Wealthy widower Logan Kendrick was expecting to meet a plain, pious spinster—not a gorgeous, sharp-tongued lass who can hold her own in any ambush. Though she’s known as the Flower of Clan Graham, Donella is no shrinking violet. In fact, she might be the perfect woman to bring happiness back to his lonely little son’s life, just in time for Christmas.  But first he must protect her from ugly gossip and a mysterious threat—and convince her that their wild, unexpected desire is heaven sent.

Synopsis:

Having witnessed the roguish ways of men, Miss Jane Harcourt has decided she is better off to remain a spinster. Working as a governess has brought her fulfillment, but when she finds herself suddenly without a position, Jane begins to fret. When her cousin alerts her that a Duke is seeking a governess for his son, Jane is overcome with joy. That is until she finds out that this is a man who is believed to have killed his wife, a man known as the Duke of Fire.

Michael Blackstone, Duke of Hayfield, knows all too well the rumors surrounding his wife’s death. For years, he has remained isolated inside his home with his son, allowing his misery and the guilt of her death to consume him. When the latest in a string of governesses leaves their home, he sends word in hopes of finding anyone who would risk being in his employ.

Desperate for employment, Jane agrees to work for the man she fears, but when she meets the Duke she is left to wonder if there is any humanity left within him. As times progresses, Jane begins to see a different side of the infamous Duke of Fire, for she sees a man who is overcome with guilt and grief—a man so lost, he is losing his mind.

For Michael, Jane has brought more than excellent teaching inside his home, she has also brought hope into an otherwise dark life. Finding the woman intriguing and enjoying her company, his feelings for her begin to grow, although he fears his love will never be returned.

Although she is afraid, Jane allows herself to fall for the broken Duke despite not knowing if her love will be enough to save the man from himself…

My Thoughts:

Miss Jane Harcourt has seen the roguish ways of men and has resigned herself to remaining alone the rest of her life. Working as a governess brings her joy but finding herself suddenly without a position, she begins to fret, worried for her future.

Michael Blackstone, Duke of Hayfield, knows all too well the rumors surrounding his wife’s death. For years, he has remained isolated inside his home with his son, allowing his misery and the guilt of her death to consume him. When the latest in a string of governesses leaves their home, he sends word in hopes of finding anyone who would risk being in his company.

For Michael, Jane has brought more than excellent teaching inside his home, she has also brought hope in an otherwise dark life.

When Jane starts to see past the rumors, and as the feelings in own heart begin to grow, she ponders the question: Is love enough to save the man from himself?

Will the facts be enough to save the man and this blossoming romance?
I couldn’t put this book down. Even though I am not usually a huge fan of sweet/clean romance this one has enough mystery behind it to draw the reader in.
I received a complimentary copy of this book through Hidden Gems and finished it very quickly.
The motherless child is a very intriguing bonus in this mostly clean mystery with romance. His love for his governess is the catalyst behind the romance in this reader’s opinion.

Synopsis:

Miss Isadora Delafield may be an heiress, but her life is far from carefree. When her mother begins pressuring her to marry an elderly and uncouth duke, she escapes from the high society world she’s always known and finds herself to be an unlikely candidate for a housekeeper position in rural Pennsylvania.

Mr. Ian MacKenzie is known for his savvy business sense and has built his reputation and fortune completely on his own merits. But when his adopted parents are in need of a new housekeeper and Isadora is thrown into his path, he’s unexpectedly charmed by her unconventional manner.

Neither Isadora nor Ian expected to find the other so intriguing, but when mysterious incidents on the farm and the truth of Isadora’s secret threaten those they love, they’ll have to set aside everything they thought they wanted for a chance at happy-ever-after.

My Thoughts:

This delightfully funny romance is full of characters you will not soon forget.
We have a Duke from London who Izzie’s mother wants her to wed. It is her wish for her daughter to marry well and into a title no matter that said Duke is loathsome.
Wanting nothing to do with the man who can’t seem to get the picture Izzie runs and hides in the most unlikely place possible, a farm as the housekeeper.
Imagine a high society miss trying to pass herself off as a housekeeper.
Enter 4 wonderful orphan children and a host of farm animals along with an elderly couple that love God and their animals more than their own life.
I laughed until I cried at points during this wonderful story.
This isn’t the first book I have read by this author but it may be the best.
I gave this story 4.8 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development. You will be carried on a wonderous ride with every page turn of this exciting and well written tale.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
