My life has been served to me on a gold platter to be devoured by my silver spoon.

Money, money, and more money. It’s the backbone of the Goddard name. I’m the only son, so it’s all mine for the taking.

But sometimes money isn’t enough. I always want more, yet nothing seems to satisfy me.

My father has made sure I become a part of The Elite Seven. Where most candidates are chosen, I was given my place. Everything comes at a price, though. Luckily, I can afford any price—no one has more money than God.

The Elite Seven have their initiations. My task is personal and beneath me—steal a car and send a warning. It’ll hurt my best friend in the process, but we both made a pact going into this. There’s no line we won’t cross.

My task makes an ugly turn and I nearly take a life. Such a small, unimportant person. Someone no one would even notice if she were gone. She’s a problem my money, and now power, can easily sweep under the rug.

It’s what my father wants. It’s what my brothers in The Elite Seven want. Yet when she finally opens those big, innocent brown eyes, I realize I’ve found what I’ve been searching for my entire life. I don’t want my little problem to disappear…I want to keep her.

Money is my legacy, but I want something money can’t buy.
I am Baxter Samuel Goddard, V.
I am Gluttony.

There is nothing that makes Dash Hampton as happy as the look on Layla’s face when she realizes he’s won. He lives to drive her crazy because if he can’t have her beneath him, then he’ll have her any other way he can. He’ll get her to notice him, even if it means making her semester a living hell.

Second Chance Love: A Regency Romance Set

I read 2 anthologies recently and this was one of them.

Jenna Jaxon Romance--because passion is timeless.

I am so excited for this new set I’m in! The five other superb authors who are in the set and I have created an anthology of second-chance-at-love stories with the focus on older women, rather than the usual Regency virginal misses. These ladies are 30+ and ready for another try at finding their Happy Ever After. Here’s a look at our stories:

A Second Chance…a do-over? These ladies are not the young naïve girls they once were. Now they are WOMEN who know the value of love, who have faced challenges and aren’t afraid to seek what they want.

Come along as they risk it all for a second chance at a happily ever after. 

Mrs. Sartin’s Secretary by Wendy LaCapra… Mrs. Amelia Sartin helms her late husband’s company and implicitly trusts her Secretary, Matthew Bellamy. However, as she cedes company control to her heir, can Bellamy persuade Amelia…

Release Date: April 15, 2019

Honestly, it’s just common sense: don’t ever, for any
reason, fall in love with a pirate.
No matter how tempting or toe-curlingly gorgeous he is.
And especially not when he steals you
from your own wedding…
One minute, I’m being married off to a horrible, cruel man
to sweeten a family business arrangement. And the next? My wedding yacht is
being stolen, with me on it, by the powerful, roguish Highlander,
Lord Malcolm McAuley.
Former pirate. Ex-soldier. Full-time scoundrel.
He also happens to be toe-curlingly gorgeous, sinfully tempting, and utterly
I should want nothing to do with the crude, filthy-talking
alpha who’s stolen me from my own damn wedding. But the more I
tell myself no…

Tudor Rose
W.H. Doyle
Published by: Month9Books
Publication date: April 9th 2019
Genres: Historical, Young Adult

In 16th-century England, two teenage best friends find themselves on an exciting journey from the country to the Queen’s court in the hope of being named ladies-in-waiting. But Sybille and Rose soon discover they aren’t the only girls who have their sights set on attending Her Majesty. The girls must compete against worldly and cunning opponents, among them mean-girl Avis and her entourage of back-stabbing co-horts, tipping the balance in their already-tenuous friendship.

Soon, the grand hall is more like the hallway of a prestigious finishing school, with girls fighting for the attention of a dashing, young earl, amid parties fueled by drinking and indiscriminate relations. As the tension between Sybille and Avis heats up, the focus on Rose wanes, allowing her to turn her attention to more important matters – like getting close…

Sounds like the beginning of a fairy-tale romance?

Stepping through a time portal into 1716, historian Penny Saunders didn’t expect to get stranded in the past.TSI

Five years later, now a pariah to the townsfolk of Three Star Island, she endures solitude and ridicule until a hurricane tosses a dangerous castaway onto her shores.

William Payne’s history precedes him. Pirate, outlaw, and ruthless captain, he’s a monster among men . . . or so it seems. Desperately seeking redemption for his blood-soaked past, he upends Penny’s world by showing her a passion she’s never experienced.

But time is closing in on them; the governor of the Carolinas has rescinded his pirates’ pardon, the locals are growing suspicious of Penny’s new houseguest, and she can’t keep her secrets from William forever. When everything falls apart, she must use both wits and weapons against lawmen and pirates alike to save the one man who would tear down the world for her.

Author Bio:

KatFor as long as she can remember, Kat Caulberg has been obsessed with history and the paranormal. Somewhat to the dismay of her parents, her interests led her into both museums and graveyards as a child, a trend which has continued into her adulthood. This has influenced her reading tastes and her writing, whether it be a good ghost story, thrilling tales of time-travel, or devouring endless volumes of ancient warfare.

She signed a contract with Soul Mate Publishing in 2018 for her first novel, Three Star Island, a time-travel story set in 1721. She enjoys writing strong, quirky heroines, and has a weakness for cheeky heroes who have as much compassion as they have flaws.

Kat currently lives in North Carolina with her Englishman and a few cats.

The Templetons have inherited a fortune but there’s a catch…

Theo, the Marquis of Eastbrook, has the easiest of tasks. At least the rest of his family thinks so. Return to his entailed estate and remain there for two months. It should be simple…
But he has refused to set foot there since the death of his wife.
Theo will do what he must for his family. It’s just, well, he almost forgot his ward still resides there.
Lucy Jameson is all grown up. Very grown up. So much so that it is becoming distracting. Not only is she attractive but she’s determined to show him how much she’s been looking after his house. The indomitable Lucy can run a household with all the talent of a woman twice her age apparently.
Every moment around her is like torment—knowing he cannot, must not touch her.
These two months were going to be challenging enough and now they’ll be even harder knowing he’s attracted to his ward—a young woman who should definitely be off limits.

My Thoughts:

Not as exciting as the first three books.

I liked the whole series however this final book just seemed predictable.
I was not enamored by the characters and not at all surprised by them.
Books one and three were the best of this series.
This final book gets 3.5 of 5.0 stars from me.
Sorry guys but this could have been much better.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
