When an impoverished bluestocking finds herself at the mercy of an irresistible scoundrel, his touch holds her captive to his every dark desire…

Wonderful! You will find yourself laughing, crying

and frightened for the hero and heroine.

Synopsis:

45586134._SY475_HIS TOUCH HOLDS HER CAPTIVE

From the ravens circling its spires to the gargoyles adorning its roof, Blackberry Manor looms ominously over its rambling grounds. And behind its doors, amid the flickering shadows and secret passageways, danger lies in wait…

TO HIS EVERY DARK DESIRE

Evangeline Pemberton has been invited to a party at the sprawling estate of reclusive Gavin Lioncroft, who is rumored to have killed in cold blood. Initially, his towering presence and brusque manner instill fear… until his seductive attentions and unexpected vulnerability conquer her resistance.

But when a guest is murdered, Evangeline is torn. Could the man to whom she is so powerfully drawn, also be a ruthless killer?

My Thoughts:

Who knew a Gothic romance could include humor?
That is certainly true with this collection. I never suspected that Erica Ridley could write such dark romantic titles and include a humorous side.
This set is a re-worked and re-released set of four earlier works by this wonderful author and they are not to be missed by fans of Erica Ridley books.

I gave this book 4.4 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization.

I received a complimentary copy of all four books in this series as a combined set. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Synopsis:

tde_featFrom a New York Times bestselling author:

Unpaid and under-appreciated journalist Miss Eve Shelling never goes anywhere without a trusty notebook and her overprotective Duenna—who happens to be a bullmastiff. Eve learned the hard way that men are not to be trusted. She’s definitely not falling head-over-heels for the deceptively charming subject of her front-page column.

Local blacksmith Monsieur Sébastien le Duc is the pillar of his community—when he’s not pillaging elsewhere. He’s a rakish dandy with a heart of stolen gold and two teeny tiny secrets. One happens to be a wee international smuggling operation. The other involves losing his heart to an ambitious journalist determined to expose the truth at any cost…

The 12 Dukes of Christmas is a series of heartwarming Regency romps nestled in a picturesque snow-covered village. After all, nothing heats up a winter night quite like finding oneself in the arms of a duke!

My Thoughts:

Unpaid and under-appreciated journalist Miss Eve Shelling never goes anywhere without a trusty notebook and her overprotective Duenna—who happens to be a bull mastiff.

Local blacksmith Monsieur Sébastien le Duc is the pillar of his community—when he’s not pillaging elsewhere. He’s a rakish dandy with a heart of stolen gold and two teeny tiny secrets.

Eve and Sébastien’s story is a very engaging one. I really enjoyed the read and actually went back and re-read portions of it. It is an unforgettable Christmas story with romance thrown in for good measure. We had previously met Sébastien in previous books in the series and know that he is the brother who has more or less conformed to his new surroundings.
Eve is both surprised and annoyed with Sébastien when she discovers that he has been smuggling.

I gave this seventh book in this series 4.59 of 5.0 stars for story line, plot and characterization.
I received a complimentary ARC of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Synopsis:

From a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author:

Meg Church adores two things: life in a village of perennial Yuletide, and the freedoms of being a spinster with no reputation to protect. Oh, very well, three things: She’s harbored a secret tendre for Christmas curmudgeon Lucien le Duc since the moment she first glimpsed him. But the sexy blacksmith won’t give her the time of day, much less a night of torrid passion.

Ever since Lucien le Duc was forced to flee his beloved France during the revolution, his all-consuming goal has been to recover not only his lost land and fortune, but also his rightful place among the French aristocracy. He would never be distracted by an English dairy maid’s sultry glances… or her soul-consuming kisses… or the temptation to turn one night into forever…

The 12 Dukes of Christmas is a series of heartwarming Regency romps nestled in a picturesque snow-covered village. Twelve delightful romances… and plenty of delicious dukes!
