and If You Give a Hellion Your Heart is a trilogy that follows Keelan Grey and Landon Hart on their adventure of discovery and a love of a lifetime.

Two hearts have never battled harder to be together…

If You Give a Smuggler a Secret (Hart’s Desire:: Book 1 in the Hart Trilogy)

A group of pirates out for revenge.
It’s the perfect storm.

Publisher’s Description:

If you give a smuggler a secret he’ll demand a kiss to keep it…
A lady plotting her way out of an arranged marriage. A smuggler with a cryptic invitation to a clandestine meeting. A group of pirates out for revenge.
It’s the perfect storm.

She’s acting a charade and he knows it. The question is~will he demand compensation for keeping her secrets?
Silly question. Of course he will. The bigger question is~will she be able to afford the cost of his silence?

If You Give a Smuggler a Secret, If You Give a Rake a Reason and If You Give a Hellion Your Heart is a trilogy that follows Keelan Grey and Landon Hart on their adventure of discovery and a love of a lifetime. Two hearts have never battled more to be together…

From the moment he discovered her with a sword in one hand, dagger in the other , Keelan Grey. But, he isn’t prepared for the impact she has on his tightly guarded heart, nor the trouble she manages to attract.

From the moment she let him in on her secret training, Keelan knew Landon Hart was going to be a storm on her horizon. With an assassin killing off members of her family one by one, and a father trying to arrange a marriage between her and a vile plantation owner, Keelan had enough on her plate without an exasperating, rakishly handsome, merchant captain getting in the way of her plots and schemes.

When Landon’s own dangerous secrets collide with Keelan’s, it’s the perfect storm.

My Thoughts:
Read and Reviewed as Hart’s Passion
Although badly edited I did mostly like this story. I had to struggle through unusual and unnecessary punctuation. Copyright symbols and other characters that were placed in places where they weren’t needed. This problem I found out later had to do with formatting rather than editing.

I didn’t like the ending. The story ended in a cliffhanger. Instead of a story of it’s own you have to wait for the next book to find out what eventually happens to our hero and heroine.
Because of the formatting problem I gave this poignant story 3.75 of 5.0 stars for story line and character development and a sensual rating of 2.5 of 5.0 flames.
The intimate scene between our hero and heroine is only a heavy petting one.
I hope the next book is soon ready so we will know our couple’s fate.
I received an uncorrected digital ARC of this book to read for review from the author/publisher. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

If You Give a Rake a Reason (Hart’s Passion: Book 2 in the Hart Trilogy)

A deathbed confession.
A dark plot of revenge.
A band of ticked off pirates.
What else could possibly go wrong?

Publisher’s Description:

Her father’s last words spin Keelan Grey into a dangerous plot of revenge. As enemies close in, she is forced to act a charade and soon her life depends on her playing the part. Now, with the mystery of her true identity to be solved, she must rely on her wits and skill with a blade to both survive and defend the man she loves.

Smuggler and ship’s captain Landon Hart has secret cargo to deliver up north, but when pirates kidnap the impetuous beauty who stole his heart, he prepares for battle. Rescuing her turns out to be the easy part. With a bounty on her head that has too many watchers out looking for her, keeping her close seems like a good plan.

Until she disappears.

If You Give a Smuggler a Secret, If You Give a Rake a Reason and If You Give a Hellion Your Heart is a trilogy that follows Keelan Grey and Landon Hart on their adventure of discovery and a love of a lifetime. Two hearts have never battled more to be together…

My Thoughts:
Read and Reviewed as Hart’s Desire
This is the second book in this serial type series. Unlike many series, this one needs to be read in order. Otherwise you just don’t get the necessary background and fail to enjoy it to it’s fullest.
I did read the first book and although there were some problems with the formatting, this problem did not carry over to this book.
This one is well written and although we have another cliff hanger ending, this time I know there is more to come in the third and final book in this series.
I gave this book 4.5 of 5 stars for story line and characterization and a sensual rating of 2.5 of 5.0 flames. There is only a hint of an intimate involvement although the cover is sexy the book doesn’t contain a great deal of intimacy.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title from the Author/Publisher via NetGalley.
This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Synopsis:

An irreverent gentleman, an abandoned wife, and a secret marriage. But is anything really what it seems?

Fun-loving Percy, the Captain Lord Granston, is everyone’s favorite cad. But his easy charm hides a dark secret. He’s plagued by nightmares and fears he’s losing his grip on reality. Then his wife arrives in London. The only problem is, he doesn’t remember marrying the woman.

Twice-widowed Finola Tenney Simmons has lost her hard-earned fortune. But she’s devised a scheme to reclaim it from her greedy stepson. All she needs is a pretend husband, with her old acquaintance Captain Granston playing the part. There’s just one complication. The captain inexplicably believes they’re actually married.

When Percy learns Finola isn’t his wife, he agrees to keep up the lie to secure her fortune, if she helps him settle his family affairs before he loses his mental faculties. But living as husband and wife leads them into temptation, and they devise a new plan. They’ll keep each other’s secrets, embark on a brief affair, and both get what they want before their fake marriage ends. It will work like a charm, as long as neither of them falls in love.

My Thoughts:

Twice-widowed Finola Tenney Simmons has lost her hard-earned fortune. But she’s devised a scheme to reclaim it from her greedy stepson. All Finola needs is a pretend husband. Unfortunately or possibly fortunately she chooses a man she met briefly, fun-loving Percy, the Captain Lord Granston.
Percy only remembers bits and pieces of his supposed wedding night and truly believes they are married. Although he learns the truth he still agrees to help her.
Can this ruse and pretend marriage lead to true love for this pair?
I can’t seem to get enough of Nancy Yeager’s books. This series has sucked me in and just will not let go.
I gave this latest of the Harrow’s Finest Series 4.8 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization. These books just keep getting better.
I 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.
