Synopsis:

His Lady Deceived coverLady Sarah Milton’s spinsterhood is not because she hasn’t received proposals of marriage. Her beauty and dowry have attracted many. It’s just that the men who have proposed don’t appeal to her. One man who does, the sport-mad Alfred Wickham, doesn’t know she exists. Therefore, when his mother invites her family to spend Yuletide with her extended family at the home of the Duke and Duchess of Radcliff, Lady Sarah jumps at the chance.

Alfred Wickham is not happy. His matchmaking mother fancies an alliance between him and some well-bred young miss he’s to meet at the Radcliffs’. The last thing Alfred wants is to tie himself down in matrimony–and, besides, he’s never been attracted to well-bred ladies. He’ll show them! He enlists his best friend, Lord Pottinger, to intervene. Potts is to inform the miss of Alfred’s wicked ways: his gaming, his recklessness, and his (feigned) understanding with an actress. Once Potts has succeeded in poisoning Lady Sarah against his friend, Alfred realizes he’s made a most dreadful mistake . . .

My Thoughts:

Join the Duke and Duchess of Radcliff and all their friends and family from A Duke Deceived for a Christmas at Hedley Hall . . .

Alfred Wickham is not happy. His match-making mother fancies an alliance between him Lady Sarah Milton, whom Alfred is to meet during Christmas at the Duke and Duchess of Radcliffs’ Hedley Hall holiday celebration.

Marriage is the last thing Alfred wants, besides, he’s never been attracted to well-bred ladies. He’ll show them!

So he enlists his best friend to whisper nonsense to Lady Sarah of Alfred’s wicked ways: his gambling addiction, his recklessness, and his supposed understanding with an actress.

This is another delightful holiday novella by Cheryl Bolen.
I enjoyed this short read and would give it 4.25 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization.
I received a complimentary ARC of this title to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

A Note From The Author:

Madness Abounds

Hi everyone! Last month I talked about my birthday and thank you to you all for the lovely wishes you sent in my inbox and on my social media. This month is just pure madness! First, Guarding the Countess is out TODAY (see below and click the links on the left). We’ve been looking at homes here in Dallas. I’ll be leaving for L.A. on Saturday for a cover shoot for some books next year and heading to Florida at the end of the month for NINC conference (a writer conference). Phew!! So crazy and so fun all at once.

Oh, and one more thing, Elizabeth Essex and I have a Christmas duet coming out next month (I’ll be sending a quick newsletter next week with pre-order info as soon as it goes up, so look for that coming soon). 

Basically, I have not taken a breath in 30 days. Sometimes it’s so easy for me to get caught up in the to dos that I forget to live in the moment. What do you do to stay present in the midst of chaos? I’ll take all suggestions. 🙂 

Guarding the Countess

The next book in the Scandal Sheet series is out today! Here are some fun things about the book:

  • MMF Menage
  • Everyone is in love with everyone (yes, the swords cross)
  • a black widow heroine…or is she?
  • danger at every turn
  • oh my God, it’s sexy. Like so sexy. Sexy, sexy.

My Thoughts:

Guarding the countess is Jess Michael’s newest Scandal Sheet novella. This one is a short and sexy read of the Reverse Harem/polyamorous romance genre.

There is more sex than story I am sad to say as I have liked this series to date.

This book book didn’t appeal to me as it features M/M & M/F/M and that is not my cup of tea. Never the less I did read it.

It is a quick read and can easily be read in one sitting.

I gave this newest novella 3.25 of 5.0 stars for story line (not much of one) and characterization.

I received a complimentary ARC of this title via Netgalley from the author to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
