Synopsis:

Sometimes you really can fall in love at first sight…toloveascottishlaird

Lady Catherine de Wolfe knows she must find a husband before her brother chooses one for her, but none of the knights and lords she knows have caught her eye. A tournament to celebrate the wedding of the Duke of Normandy might be her answer. She does not expect to fall for a man after just one touch.

Laird Douglas MacLaren of Berwyck is invited to the tournament by the Duke of Normandy. He goes to ensure Berwyck’s safety once Henry takes the throne. He does not expect to become entranced by a woman who bumps into him.

Before they can express their feelings, the Duke orders them wed to strengthen ties between his English supporters and the borderland, and then separates them by commanding Douglas’s escort to his home.

Yet, nothing is ever quite that simple. Not everyone is happy with the union of this English lady and a Scottish laird. From the shores of France, to Berwyck Castle on the border between their countries, Douglas and Catherine must find their way to protect their newfound love.

Synopsis:

An innocent woman. A loyal agent to the Crown. A path of deception that tests When a Duke Pursues a Ladythe bonds of love.

After three years trapped in an abusive and loveless marriage, Lyra Coventry has been arrested for the murder of her husband, the Earl of Weston. Although she’s innocent of the crime, she has no one to turn to for help, until Alister Ayles, the Duke of Albright, comes forward to offer his aid. The handsome duke takes her into his custody, saving her from a jail cell. But Lyra doesn’t suspect Alister’s ulterior motive—to prove her guilty of treason—as she slowly loses her heart to a man who is far more than he seems…

Alister Ayles leads a secret life. To the ton, he is a dullard, the subject of ridicule. But as a highly respected agent for the Crown, he’s discovered a higher purpose by protecting his country. Now he’s faced with his toughest investigation to date, uncovering a plot against the Crown…and discovering whether or not Lyra, the woman he let slip through his fingers years ago, is a traitor. Nothing is as it seems, and as the plot unravels, the dangers to them increase. He struggles to keep his feelings for her contained, but when it comes down to a test of loyalty, will he stand strong, or fall prey to his desires?


My Thoughts:

An innocent woman. 

After three years trapped in an abusive and loveless marriage, Lyra Coventry has been arrested for the murder of her husband, the Earl of Weston.

A loyal agent to the Crown.

Alister Ayles leads a secret life. To the ton, he is a dullard, the subject of ridicule. But as a highly respected agent for the Crown, he’s discovered a higher purpose by protecting his country.

A path of deception that tests the bonds of love.

Now Alister is faced with his toughest investigation to date, uncovering a plot against the Crown…and discovering whether or not Lyra, the woman he let slip through his fingers years ago, is a traitor. 

Nothing is as it seems, and as the plot unravels, the dangers to them increase.

My heart went out to Lyra with all she had previously and now was going through. In this case life just doesn’t seem fair for this unlucky in love lady.
At the time she is arrested she has no idea why this is happening to her or if she has anyone she can turn to.

This well crafted story is not to be missed. I have read bits and pieces of this series to date because I was gifted with first chapters of this one and book #1. After reading them I bought book #1 and 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.
I gave Lyra and Alister’s story 4.5 of 5.0 stars for plot, story line and characterization. I want to read the entire series.
I am looking forward to the fifth and final book of this series later this year.

Synopsis:

twelve gifts by christmas cover

Sometimes love shows up when you least expect it…

Lady Philomena Wallace, Countess of Lipscomb, is not a woman in the first blush of youth. As a widow, she has seen her share of loss. She is perfectly content with her life as it is. Or, at least that’s what she thought. As the Christmas Season approaches, she begins to receive anonymous gifts from a secret admirer. He claims that he will reveal his identity on Christmas Day. But what begins as a rather intriguing prospect suddenly turns complicated when a man from her past abruptly resurfaces…

And turns out to be the best decision you ever make.

On a busy London street, Julian Solomon encounters Mena, the village girl he met long ago. At the time, she had been pledged to another, but even so he knew her family would never approve his suit as a poor commoner, so he leaves for America determined to make a better life for himself. Twenty years later he returns to England, intent on charming the woman he’d never truly forgotten. But as life has taught him not everything works out as you plan, and sometimes you need a little Christmas spirit to finally achieve what you’ve always wanted. 


My Thoughts:

Read and Reviewed as part of the Anthology: Yuletide Happily Ever Afters: A Merry Little Set of Regency Romances

Twelve Gifts by Christmas by Tabetha Waite 
When Lady Philomena Wallace, the Countess of Lipscomb, receives a gift from a secret admirer, she imagines it’s a lark. It isn’t until a stranger from her past abruptly returns that she has to make a choice between a mysterious suitor – and a second chance at love. 
This is another second chance Christmas romance with a more mature couple. I gave this one 4.75 of 5.0 stars.
