Synopsis:

Watch out what you wish for…
Love by the Letters Cover

For three couples, a letter promising an anonymous gift of wealth offers worldly success and dreams come true, provided each pair can learn not only to work together, but also to see differences as strengths.

A is for Amorous by Grace Burrowes
Adalicia Beauvais has no use for children, and even less use for most men. Plato wasn’t a bad sort, and Euclid was bright enough, but the modern variety of male holds no appeal for her. To earn ownership of a lovely country estate with a delightfully well stocked library, Ada must raise funds for an orphanage full of noisy, malodorous urchins.

As if that isn’t challenge enough, her only ally in this endeavor, is the headmaster, Lord John, who loves children, referees cricket matches, and plucks Ada’s very, very last nerve, even though she knows his devotion to the children is genuine, as is the orphanage’s need for funds. Opposites don’t always attract, but in this case, they must work together for thirty days, or neither Ada’s nor John’s dreams will ever come true.

B is for Beautiful Secrets by Vanessa Riley
Desperate to win proper dowries for his younger sisters, August Sedgewick has thirty days to sell his treasured art, make amends with his estranged brother, Lord Haverthon, and endure the prickly company of the business-minded Miss Nettles. The dedicated dressmaker is the toughest part of the deal for she’s more adroit at lecturing him on the habits of trade than succumbing to his charms. Yet, the sparkle of joy radiating in her spectacles as August distracts her with leisurely picnics and long rides in the park, teaches him more than he bargained for.
Modiste for those with secrets–pregnant brides-to-be, aging courtesans desperate to keep their patron’s attention, Mary-Anne Nettles would love the opportunity to have her talent out of the shadows and as she creates the bridal gown for the event of the season, the Earl of Haverthon’s wedding. To win that chance, the demure woman must spend time with the earl’s flamboyant brother helping him set up a business in trade. Yet, Mr. Sedgewick proves a difficult student, teaching Mary-Anne about fun and drawing her deeper into the unseen turmoil of Ton.
Can two very different souls rise above secrets to find a forever love for all the world to see?

C is for The Chapel of Love by Kelly Bowen
Henry Blackmore has always been a black sheep. He’s defied his ducal family, ignored expectations, and overcome tragedy to chase his own dreams of becoming a renowned architect. The only task standing between his fierce ambition and everything he’s ever wanted is the restoration of his family’s crumbling country manor. But first, he has to do something about Heaton Hall’s impossible steward.

Heaton Hall was essentially abandoned when Maeve Murray became steward after the death of her father. When Henry arrives with his pockets full of cash, Maeve is delighted – until she realizes that the money is not to help the struggling tenants but to restore the frivolous ballroom. Nonetheless, Maeve and Henry, they need each other, and working together might just restore more than a crumbling manor – it could restore two broken hearts!

Synopsis:

Wicked's Scandal CoverAlexandra Dunforth didn’t plan on creating a scandal….

She’s more concerned with her family estate and the aged servants left in her care. She’s also avoiding the marriage her uncle has arranged. The last thing she wants is to attract attention – especially from the biggest rake in the ton, Sutton “Satan” Reynolds, the infamous Marquess of Cambourne. 

Lord Cambourne detests London…

The weather is poor. Women are begging for ruination at his hands. And he suspects his stepmother is attempting to have him murdered. All things considered, he’d rather return to the relative safety of the jungles of Macao. 

A chance meeting….

Alexandra is the most interesting woman Sutton has met in ages. She scoffs at his ridiculous nickname and isn’t impressed with his looks. 

Sutton isn’t deterred by Alexandra’s opinion of him instead, he’s intrigued. He’s finally found a woman he actually wants to ruin. 

Alexandra.

“Wonderful! A charming, clever, and engaging storyteller not to be missed.”

–Sarah MacLean, New York Times bestselling author

A lady with secrets, a man with a burning desire, a love that breaks all the rules

Synopsis:

Lady in Red coverLady Charlotte Beaumont has spent her whole life being ignored. By her parents, her brother, even the servants. So she was secretly able to develop her talent for painting well beyond the usual watercolors. Too bad no one will let her actually use it-women are rarely accepted into the Royal Academy. But when a connection at the Haverhall School for Young Ladies gets Charlotte her dream commission, she’ll do whatever it takes to make it work. Including disguising herself as “Charlie.”

Flynn Rutledge has something to prove. His lowly upbringing is not going to stop him from achieving his artistic dreams. This commission is the key to his future, and his partner, an unknown youth in oversized clothes who is barely old enough to shave, doesn’t exactly inspire confidence. But Charlie does inspire Flynn’s artistic passion-something he worried he might have lost forever. For all his street smarts, nothing can prepare Flynn for the shock of Charlie’s true identity. He doesn’t care that she’s a woman, but a lady of the ton is a different matter altogether . . .

My Thoughts:

Reviewed December 5, 2017

I was in love with the character of the heroine immediately. I am an artist also and even in more modern times female artist often get pushed aside and replaced by their male counterparts.

Lady Charlotte Beaumont, Charlie, has an extraordinary artistic talent, but like most females of the era it is looked upon as something that she could perhaps teach to other genteel young ladies but not to be taken seriously.

Flynn Rutledge has also had much to overcome. First and foremost his own artistic talent has brought him to the attention of ladies who want for his body and not his mind.

Charlie is chosen along with Flynn to create two panels that will be displayed in a church. Disguised as a young lad, Charlie endeavors to do her best with her work and in the meantime to encourage the confidence of Flynn which is lacking after his breakup with his lady mistress.

Will this unusual pair carry their relationship to a higher degree or will the revelation that Charlie is actually a highborn lady be the end of things between them?

I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5.0 flames. After Flynn discovers that Charlie is a woman sparks fly and the intimacy between them ensues.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
