Synopsis:

My Darling Duke Cover“Lush, beautifully written, and deeply romantic, My Darling Duke will sweep you off your feet. My heart was lost to this couple from the very start.” —Amalie Howard, author of The Beast of Beswick

Miss Katherine Danvers has always been a wallflower. But now, with her family on the brink of financial ruin, she finds herself a desperate wallflower. To save her family, she’ll do anything. Luckily, she has the perfect plan…

She’ll impress the ton by simply announcing she is engaged to the reclusive and mysterious Duke of Thornton, Alexander Masters, and secure strong matches for her sisters. No one has heard from the duke in years. Surely he’ll never find out before her sisters’ weddings, and she can go back to her own quiet life.

Soon, though, everything is out of control. At first, it’s just a few new ball gowns on the duke’s accounts. Then, it’s interviews with reporters eager for gossip. Before she knows it, Katherine has transformed herself into Kitty Danvers, charming and clever belle of the ton—with everyone eager to meet her thankfully absent fiancé.

But when the enigmatic Alexander Masters suddenly arrives in the city, dashing and oh so angry, he demands retribution. Except not in the way Katherine expected…

My Thoughts:

Miss Katherine Danvers has always been a wallflower. But now, with her family on the brink of financial ruin, she finds herself a desperate wallflower. To save her family, she’ll do anything. Luckily, she has the perfect plan…
When Katherine pretends to be betrothed to the reclusive and mysterious Duke of Thornton, Alexander Masters, she never imagined he would come to London seeking her out. After all the man had not even been heard from in ten years and is rumored to be either mad or dead.
Association to the notorious man is just what she needs to save her family. Soon everything gets totally out of control when the Duke’s solicitors show up and ensconce herself, her mother and sisters in a townhouse they never could have afforded on their own. But when the enigmatic Alexander Masters suddenly arrives at a ball, dashing and oh so angry, he demands retribution. Except not in the way Katherine expected…
Stacy Reid has seldom disappointed this reader and not at all on this occasion. She has in fact surpassed everything I have come to expect from her. This book being maybe the best I have ever read from her.
This book gets a score of 4.9 of 5.0 (rounded up to 5 stars) for story line, plot and characterization.
I loved this book and went back to reread several chapters again.
I received a complimentary ARC of this title via NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this New Years Eve release which I read and am reviewing voluntarily.

Synopsis:

The Kiss at Midnight CoverA Highlander to the Rescue Romance

Sometimes dreams do come true…

Highlander Greyson Merrick no longer sails the seas, his past behind him as he seeks a new life in Aberdeen. But tragedy casts a long shadow and starting over isn’t easy when haunted by guilt. Honor keeps him from pursuing romance – he only hopes to live quietly, alone, and in peace. He is content, and that’s enough. But he soon wants more when a late night stroll ends with a searing kiss – and a woman who disappears with his heart.

Ophelia Raines is little more than a servant in her aunt’s home and knows better than most that fairytales aren’t real. She isn’t a fair maiden in an ivy-grown tower and she stopped believing in princes long ago – when she foolishly gave her heart, and innocence, to a frog. But when a midnight jaunt lands her in the arms of a dashing stranger, she wonders if happy-ever-afters do exist? Better yet, the magic of falling in love.

Stand-Alone Read … HEA … No Cliffhangers

“Welfonder is one of the finest writers of Scottish romance.” ~ RT Book Reviews

My Thoughts:

In this lighthearted and magical Scottish Romance by USA Today bestselling author Sue-Ellen Welfonder a champion of lost causes faces his greatest challenge when he meets an elusive beauty he’d rather kiss than rescue.
Sometimes dreams do come true…
Highlander Greyson Merrick no longer sails the seas, his past behind him as he seeks a new life in Aberdeen. But tragedy casts a long shadow and starting over isn’t easy when haunted by guilt.
Ophelia Raines is little more than a servant in her aunt’s home and knows better than most that fairytales aren’t real.
She believes most men aren’t princes but frogs in disguise. She knows from experience because one frog took her innocence on a long ago night.
Sue-Ellen Welfonder is an author I came to love quite a few years back. She always amazes me whether writing as Sue-Ellen Welfonder or Allie Mackay her books are real page turners and infused with magic.
I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization. I borrowed this book to read with my KindleUnlimited subscription. This had no effect on my opinion of this delightful novella.
