My Thoughts:

This second book in this series is a well written and delightful read. This six book series is being written by two different authors alternating as book one by Erica Ridley and book #2 by Darcy Burke. Odd numbered titles will be Erica Ridley books and even numbered ones by Darcy Burke. They aren’t exactly standalone titles but can be read as such.

After one passionate night a decade ago, Valentine Fairfax, Duke of Eastleigh, never forgot Isabelle, the intelligent, witty and forbidden daughter of a head of college at Oxford.

Once penniless, Isabelle Cortland has finally saved enough money to finance a school for impoverished girls. But when a chance encounter rekindles buried desires, Isabelle knows she can’t be a duke’s mistress and a headmistress at the same time. She is no longer a naïve girl and will not repeat mistakes from her past.

The first two books blend well together since they are about the owners of the wicked dukes club.

This delightful quick read is not to be missed.

I gave this novella 4.6 of 5.0 stars for story line, plot and characterization.

There are carry over characters from the first book written by Ms. Ridley but you will not be lost if you did not read that book.

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.

Publisher’s Description:

To Seduce a Scoundrel CoverA lady on the brink of disaster…

Lady Philippa Latham is determined to avoid scandal at all costs. When her mother’s outrageous behavior threatens their family’s reputation, Philippa attempts to curtail her activities. Unwittingly, she follows her to a party no unmarried Society girl would risk attending, where she locks lips with England’s most notorious scoundrel. She should stay far away from him, but a night of danger and kisses ensures they will be linked, at least for a short time.

A scoundrel in need of seduction…

Lord Ambrose Sevrin is famous for having ruined his brother’s fiancée and refusing to marry her. Now celibate, he doesn’t deserve to stand next to Lady Philippa, let alone touch her. Yet when she needs his help to secure a husband before her mother ruins them all, he can’t resist offering his assistance. He must not, however, succumb to her charms because he can’t tolerate redemption—or love.

Publisher’s Description:

The Earl of Buckleigh was once an untitled misfit, tormented at Oxford. Now, he’s overcome his challenges and is eager for the future, especially when his oldest and dearest friend, Bianca, needs help to save the annual holiday party. Ash has a plan to rescue the event, but when the bullies from his youth are up to their old tricks, he must risk everything to put the past behind him and find true love.

Furious when her brother refuses to host the St. Stephen’s Day party, Lady Bianca Stafford is committed to giving the villagers their celebration. In Ash, she sees salvation for their local tradition, and perhaps a future she never expected. But her brother has other plans for her—a Season and marriage, and not to Ash. When disaster strikes, everything she cares about is threatened and it will take a miracle—or a hero—to save the day.

The Red Hot Earl is inspired by the song and story, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Be sure to check out the Red Hot Earl version of the song on my website at darcyburke.com!

Book Three: Joy to the Duke

Love Is All Around Series

My Thoughts:

Lady Bianca Stafford is furious when her brother refuses to host the St. Stephen’s Day party. This is a family tradition after all and she must convince him to continue to sponsor the event for their friends and neighbors.

Ash, Earl of Buckleigh was once an untitled misfit. Tormented at Oxford, now he’s overcome his challenges and is eager for the future with the girl who was his best friend during his time of agony.

When his oldest and dearest friend, Bianca, needs help to save the annual holiday party. Ash has a plan to rescue the event, but can he overcome the tricks of the bullies from his childhood.

In Ash, Bianca sees salvation for their local tradition, and perhaps a future she never expected. Except her brother has other plans which do not include her happily ever after with Ash.

This short read is very well written but although it is surrounded by the Christmas season and all of it’s revelries it just doesn’t feel like a Christmas tale.

I read it in one sitting and loved the hero and heroine. I also developed a dislike for most of the other characters. I didn’t get the Rudolph the red nosed reindeer inspiration though. It just didn’t resonate that way to me.
I gave this first book in this series 4 of 5 stars for story line and character development.

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

The ghosts of the past haunt Calder’s present and threaten his future–it’s up to Felicity to help him find love before it’s too late.

Publisher’s Description:

Denied the woman of his dreams by his father’s meddling, Calder Stafford, has spent the last decade proving himself to be self-sufficient, austere, and utterly uninterested in joy. Now that he is the Duke of Hartwell, he’ll enact his revenge by abolishing the holiday traditions his father loved so well. His sisters will not sway him and neither will the woman—newly returned to town—who was stolen from him.

Returning to Hartwell to care for her mother, widow Felicity Garland is delighted to be back home, especially for the holidays. However, the jolly festivities she expects are nowhere to be found. When she goes to the source of the problem—the duke—she’s astonished to see how much the young man she once loved has hardened. It’s up to her to break through the impenetrable fortress around his heart—not just to save Christmas, but to save him.
