51iw0IJTY-L._SY346_She cannot resist the man behind the mask…
As the illegitimate daughter of a Scottish earl, Lady Magdalen Keith is not one to partake in lavish balls or other frivolities. Yet at her father’s urging, she agrees to dance with the battle-weary officers at this year’s holiday masquerade. It’s practically her civic duty! But when one such officer—whose dashing good looks cannot be disguised by a mere mask—sweeps her off her feet and into his arms, the innocent lass can’t help herself. Her lips are his for the taking.

But will he betray his country for a kiss?

Navy lieutenant Aiden Murray has spent too many months at sea to be immune to the charms of this lovely beauty. Even after he returns to his ship, she lives in his dreams. But when he discovers Maddie’s true identity—and learns that her father is accused of treason—will the brawny Scot risk his life to follow his heart? 

My Thoughts:

Amy Jarecki has crafted another well written story. It begins like many stories of young love but leads us on a convoluted journey to it’s end years later.

It was difficult to read some parts of this story with the brutality that was involved. I’m certain that Amy softened some of that by not going into greater detail.

This part of the story reminded me of the difficulties of Jamie Frasier in the Outlander novel.
It sickened and brought this reader to tears but is an intricate part of this tale.
Maddie and Aiden are destined for one another but will their travails end in death or a lasting love?

I gave this book 4.25 of 5 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3 of 5 flames. This story has more strife than passion therefore the lower sensual rating.

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 story which I read and reviewed voluntarily.




51su9TTC86LHe has sworn to protect her…

Captain Reid MacKenzie, Earl of Seaforth, is a man of his word. During a harrowing battle at sea, the heroic Highlander makes a vow to a dying friend to watch over the man’s daughter. His plan: send the child to boarding school as quickly as possible so he can continue his mission. But Reid’s new ward is no wee lass. She’s a ravishing, fully grown woman, and it’s all he can do to remember his duty and not seduce her himself.

But he might be her greatest threat…

Miss Audrey Kennet is stunned by the news. First this kilted brute tells Audrey her father is dead, and next he insists she marry. But as Reid scours England for the most suitable husband, Audrey soon realizes the brave, brawny Scot is the only man she wants—though loving him means risking her lands, her freedom, and even her life.

My Thoughts:

I usually love everything I read by this author, but I could only feel luke warm about this title.
There just didn’t seem to be any real chemistry between our couple.
Maybe the fact that our hero thought he was going to be in charge of a child that he could send off to boarding school was the beginning of his problem. Discovering his charge was far from a school girl turned him on his ear.
Our heroine was not what was expected.
I gave this book 3.25 of 5.0 stars for story line and character development and a sensual rating of 3 of 5 flames.
I just didn’t see anything that indicated these two belonged together.

51I8ejXMlWLHe is the last man she would ever marry…
After being unceremoniously jilted by her betrothed, Lady Mairi MacKenzie is humiliated and heartbroken – but she’s not desperate. As the daughter of an earl, she won’t give her hand to just anyone, and she definitely isn’t swayed by a last-minute proposal from Laird Duncan MacRae. The powerful clan chieftain may be disarmingly handsome and charming, but he’s not a nobleman. Mairi doesn’t want his pity or his charity – even though his dark smoldering gaze makes her melt with desire.

She is the only woman he could ever love…
Dunn may be a battle-hardened clansman, but he’s always had a soft spot for Mairi. For years, she tormented him with flirtation – only to reject him. But he’s not giving up. When Mairi is attacked by redcoats, Dunn goes after the woman he loves. Through brute strength and fierce action, he will protect her life at any cost. But to win her heart, he will have to show her the tenderness in his own. 




51-hic+xr9LShe is the daughter of his sworn enemy.
Famed for his fierceness, Laird Robert Grant is above all a loyal Highland clan chief. But when redcoats capture his rival’s daughter, he sets aside their feud and races to her rescue. Aye, Janet Cameron is beautiful, cunning, and so very tempting, but a Cameron lass is the last woman he should ever desire.

He is her one hope of happiness.
Janet refuses to meekly surrender, not even when surrounded by foes. She takes every chance to escape, first from the English soldiers and then from the wickedly handsome Robert. Yet with each day they spend together, his unexpected gallantry chips away at her reserve little by little. As danger and treachery loom, can she trust him enough to choose love over vengeance?




415425jopuL._SY346_Mr. & Mrs. Smith meets Outlander in this action-packed Scottish romance where a marriage of convenience leads to secrets that could be deadly.

With two young sons to care for and a large estate to run, John Erskine, the widowed Earl of Mar, needs to remarry as quickly as possible. And beautiful Lady Evelyn Pierrepont would be the perfect match. But there’s more behind the English lass’s calm demeanor than she’s letting on, including a smoldering allure not even John can ignore.

Evelyn has no desire to wed the rugged Scottish earl, but at least she’ll be able to continue her work as a spy-as long as her husband never finds out. Yet the more time Evelyn spends with John and his boys, the fonder she grows of their little family, and the last thing she wants to do is put them in danger. As alliances shift and enemies draw closer, soon everything they hold dear is at risk: their lands, their love, and their very lives.

The lady's Dangerous LoveFrom two different worlds, their passion is dangerous…

Determined and dashing, Benjamin Hetherington vowed that he would never give a woman the power to hurt him again. So far, he’s succeeded, but then Miss Primrose Ainsley comes stomping into his life. She has too much to say, is nothing like any debutante he’s ever met, and seems not to give a fig about proprietary. Ben fights the emotion she provokes in him by pushing her away, but too late he realizes that in Primrose he has found someone that may heal the dark stain on his soul.

Primrose is very aware of her shortcomings, her family have certainly commented on them often enough. She’s forthright, and bookish, both qualities that are not in her favor. Attending a house party during her one and only season, is not going well. In fact, her entire debut is a nightmare, until she meets Benjamin Hetherington. The man has seen her at her worst, and yet incredibly she still sees the burning desire in his gaze. Honor wars with irresistible passion, but when disaster strikes and her reputation is ruined, Primrose realizes she’s made the foolish mistake of falling in love with him.

Primrose is not going to bend to society’s demands, but Ben’s scandalous demands are something entirely harder to resist.
