Synopsis:

A Kiss CoverHe planned a house party filled with eligible women to choose a bride. She’s a prospect intent on ruining his plans.

Hugh, the Marquess of Metcalfe, prides himself on his efficiency. When he requires a bride, he knows just how to select one: a house party filled with eligible women.

Emma Braunschweig is not in search of a husband. After all, a husband might discover her family’s secret. Instead, her brother has procured an invitation for her so she can ensure the marquess chooses a certain eligible heiress.

Hugh’s methodical approach to marriage should make him eliminate Emma from consideration. Emma’s horse-riding ability is questionable, her piano skills are atrocious, and she spends her time extolling the good qualities of another contestant. But can a kiss change everything?

My Thoughts:

This is the fifth book in this delightfully lighthearted series.

If you like a bit of humor in your regency romance rather than the dull books of your mother’s day, you will love reading Bianca Blythe’s Wedding Trouble series.

In this book Hugh, the Marquess of Metcalfe has decided to take a wife. Rather than going about choosing his bride in the conventional way he decides to invite eight young women to a house party to get to know them, deciding by a process of elimination.

Enter Emma Braunschweig. Emma isn’t looking for a husband but ends up at the party so she can ensure that her friend is the one chosen. Emma is after all very unlikely due to her lack of the appropriate skills of a wife of a Marquess.

This book like all of the others in this series has a comical air. all of these books can be read as standalone titles without getting you as the reader lost.

I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization.

I received a complimentary copy through Bookfunnel from the author to read. This in no way has affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Synopsis:

Most weddings might be joyous occasions, but Hamish’s older brother is marrying…a wedding trouble book 1commoner. Never mind that he’s engaged to an earl’s daughter, and they’ll lose their family’s estate if he marries someone else. Hamish will just have to find a way to stop the wedding. 

Georgiana Butterworth is startled when a handsome Scot breaks into her bedroom and brandishes money. Evidently he’s mistaken her for her newly engaged sister and is trying to bribe her into not marrying his brother. Georgiana knows one thing: she won’t permit this man to ruin her sister’s chance for everlasting happiness.

Hamish may be determined to stop the wedding, but Georgiana is intent to make certain the wedding happens, no matter what she has to do to distract him. 

My Thoughts:

I loved this newest book by Bianca Blythe. This first book in this new series stems from the previous series and is delightful from page one.

When Hamish receives a wedding invitation to his brother, the dukes wedding to the wrong lass he makes it his mission to stop the wedding. After all his older twin brother is already betrothed to another.
His mission to stop this wedding leads to a tale with hysterical by play between this hero and the heroine, sister to his brothers bride.

This humorous tale is one for my keeper shelf. I found it engaging from the first chapter.

I gave this book 4.75 of 5 stars for story line and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5 flames. There is only one intimate scene and it is mild.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the author to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Synopsis:

Too Tempting to Resist coverFrom a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author:

When a new heir inherits the castle, poor relation Miss Rebecca Bond must wed immediately or be out on her ear. The only man she ever loved is summoned to hear the will—but their past ended so badly that they haven’t spoken in years. Yet who better than a heartless rake to teach her how to snare a gentleman who appreciates her charms?

Daniel Godwin, Lord Stonebury, regrets nothing more than losing the one woman who treated him like a man, not a title. Fate has given him the perfect pretext to win her trust—even if it means watching her wed someone else. But now that she’s back in his life, he’ll do anything to convince her to choose him instead…

My Thoughts:

A rakish lord has the chance to win forgiveness from a lost love… if he can spirit her away from a haunted castle. 


Another Gothic treat!

Haunted castles, frightening circumstances and a heroine who tries to run away.

This sweet second chances title will reel you in.

I gave this book 4.0 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization.

Synopsis:

From a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author:

HIS TOUCH HOLDS HER CAPTIVE

From the ravens circling its spires to the gargoyles adorning its roof, Blackberry Manor looms ominously over its rambling grounds. And behind its doors, amid the flickering shadows and secret passageways, danger lies in wait… 

TO HIS EVERY DARK DESIRE

Evangeline Pemberton has been invited to a party at the sprawling estate of reclusive Gavin Lioncroft, who is rumored to have killed in cold blood. Initially, his towering presence and brusque manner instill fear… until his seductive attentions and unexpected vulnerability conquer her resistance.

But when a guest is murdered, Evangeline is torn. Could the man to whom she is so powerfully drawn, also be a ruthless killer?

My Thoughts:

When an impoverished bluestocking finds herself at the mercy of an irresistible scoundrel, his touch holds her captive to his every dark desire…
Wonderful! You will find yourself laughing, crying and frightened for the hero and heroine.

Who knew a Gothic Romance could include humor? 
That is certainly true with this collection. I never suspected that Erica Ridley could write such dark romantic titles and include a humorous side.

I gave this book 4.4 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization.


New release

Synopsis:

One look at the towering ocean-side manor that is to be her new home, and exiled socialite Susan Stanton knows: This is a place haunted by secrets, and riddled with menace.

For Susan, there is no escaping the most dangerous element of all—dark-haired smuggler Evan Bothwick, a man whose rakish countenance cannot hide his wicked intent. 

But Susan has a secret of her own—a special gift that renders her privy to the darkest mysteries lurking within the walls of the manor and in the labyrinthine cellars beneath. And the only man who can help her is the very rogue she would do anything to be able to resist… 

My Thoughts:

When a disgraced socialite is exiled to an isolated manor atop a pirate-infested cove, the only person who can help her escape is the one man who cannot be trusted with her heart…
