Synopsis:

Richard Downing may be a viscount of impeccable character, but he’s bored beyond belief of dancing at balls, faking smiles, and making dull conversation. So when he stumbles upon a housemaid with defiance in her striking blue eyes and a dagger hidden in her skirts…well, color him intrigued.

Raised with a rather…peculiar upbringing, Lady Victoria Daring is full of secrets and surprises. As part of His Majesty’s personal homeland spy network and as a master of disguises, Vic is charged with infiltrating high society to uncover the enemies hiding in plain sight.

But Richard is the first man to see through her disguises––and infiltrate deep into her heart. Too bad his family is at the top of her list of suspects…

My Thoughts:

Raised with a rather peculiar upbringing, Lady Victoria Daring is full of secrets and surprises. As part of His Majesty’s personal homeland spy organization and as a master of disguises, Vic is charged with infiltrating high society to uncover the enemies hiding in plain sight.

But Richard is the first man to see through her disguises––and infiltrate deep into her heart. Too bad his family is at the top of her list of suspects…

The daring family father, Devon Daring, the Earl of Gadstoke, has been the ambassador to the Orient for twenty-five years. The Darings are part of a secret organization of the Prince Regent’s to combat would be enemies of the crown. Now it’s 1817 and they have returned from Zhejiang, China to London and are tasked to carry out matters of espionage.

This is the first book in this new series, Women of Daring. It was also my first time reading this author’s work and I’m sorry to say I wasn’t impressed. The story started out slow and didn’t pick up until almost half way through. It does begin to be an interesting story along the way but I wouldn’t say it was my cup of tea.
I gave this book 3.75 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization.
Maybe the next book in the series will be better.
I received a complimentary ARC of this book to read.
This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Synopsis:

a midsummer kiss coverOrphaned at a tender age, Miss Louise Grant spent her life in servitude to care for her younger siblings. Now, no longer needed as a duchess’ companion, Louise has procured employment in York. But on her last night in London, her reputation is shattered when the drunk and disorderly Marquess mistakes Louise’s room for his lover’s.

Luke, the Marquess Graham is determined to never torment himself again by daring to love. Stumbling into Miss Louise Grant’s room destroys his days of bachelorhood when he is pressured into marrying her. However, the cold and distant Marquess knows they’ll never have a happy marriage; his new and fetching wife will never crack the protective barrier around his heart.

Trying to make the best of a bad marriage Louise attempts to break through the icy visage of the Marquess. But when misfortune strikes and Luke reverts to his cold, distant former self, Louise is not willing to give up on the possibility of love. After all, ice will melt when surrounded by warmth.

My Thoughts:

Orphaned at a tender age, Miss Louise Grant spent her life in servitude to care for her younger siblings. No longer needed by her current charge Louise has sought employment elsewhere as a governess.
Luke, the Marquess Graham is determined to never torment himself again by daring to love. Stumbling into Miss Louise Grant’s room destroys his days of bachelorhood when he is pressured into marrying her.
Neither one has the inclination to marry but certain ruination gives them no choice. Luke abandons his new wife at his country estate where he expects her to stay, but Louise has other ideas.
Can this separated by distance couple come together in love after their unfortunate beginning?
I enjoyed this quick read and gave it 4.25 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization.
I received a complimentary ARC of this novella to read.
This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
