A Love Denied
Kenneth Brodie offered for young Mary Catherine Rose but her father declined, then a year later accepted an offer from another clan. Furious at hearing Cat would be married soon to someone else, Kenneth fled to France and drowned his disappointment in wine, women and war.

A Love Lost
Two years after her father demanded they wait until Cat was older, she doesn’t understand why Kenneth hasn’t returned for her. Broken-hearted, Cat spurns yet another betrothal her father arranges and runs away to her cousin in St. Andrews, vowing never to marry.

A Love Worth Fighting For
By the time Kenneth returns home, trouble is brewing in Scotland. Sent to St. Andrews as hostage for his clan to the Regent, Kenneth resents being exiled—until he encounters his lost love, Cat Rose. When war breaks out, they must escape. And even though he betrayed her with more than one mademoiselle, he’s the only man Cat trusts to get her home to the Highlands. Can she forgive his past and renew the love they once shared?

My thoughts:

His Highland Love by Willa Blair is another fantastic read in her new series, “His Highland Heart”. While, book 2 in this thus far amazing series, it can be read as a stand alone. Set in France and Scotland.

This is the story of Kenneth Brodie, Mary Catherine Rose and a love once denied, thought to be lost, but will that same love be worth fighting for now. Open up “His Highland Heart” to see for yourself, you’re be glued to the pages of this captivating story of love lost, and found again. Kenneth and Mary Catherine, “Cat” are a wonderful couple, who will hold your heart!

Willa Blair writes a story that comes to life and will sweep you away on a journey from France into the Highlands of Scotland . “His Highland Love” is a romantic adventure filled with lots of twists and turns, suspense and danger. It’s definitely a charming story with plenty of romance and adventure with a touch of spice to add to the lure of adventure!

Fast paced with an enjoyable cast of characters who will steal and capture your heart. I was amazed with Cat and Kenneth’s journey to finding their HEA amongst the turmoil of war. Beautifully written and masterfully executed! Well done, Willa Blair!!
I look forward to the next adventure in “His Highland Heart” series.

Product Description

Her daughter’s kidnapping. A metro bombing. Going undercover. Zoey Morningstar’s trip to Paris wasn’t to include any of these things. But it does. Although Jean-Luc LeFèvre rescues her little girl from the Red Hand, the threat to her child continues. Zoey is grateful to Jean-Luc, but her need to help capture the abductors must override any desire she feels for the handsome agent with his own brand of justice…and danger. Jean-Luc is not pleased when Zoey, a crime scene photographer with just enough training to get them killed, is assigned to work with him in the French Counterterrorism Unit. Not only does she take too many risks, she drives him to distraction. As Zoey and Jean-Luc track the terrorists, their feelings for each other grow as fast as the danger. Jean-Luc is determined to protect Zoey and her daughter, but the sinister grasp of the Red Hand is strong and far-reaching. It will take more than love to keep them all safe.

My thoughts:

Jean-Luc: Once is Never Enough by Vonnie Davis is an intriguing story. #2 in “Paris Intrigue”, while I feel some readers may wish to read #1 “Niko:Licensed to Kill”, before reading this, it’s not necessary to fully enjoy “Jean-Luc”. What a Romantic Suspense!

Zoey Morningstar, her child Taylor Ann, Jean-Luc LeFèvre, the Red Hand Terrorist group and the French Counterterrorism Unit, makes for some exciting and thrilling reading. Zoey and Jean-Luc’s chemistry is explosive and steamy.

Well written with well developed, realistic and engaging characters and a plot to literally die for, Vonnie Davis will certainly capture your heart in “Jean-Luc”. Definitely a heart thumping, action packed tale, set in Paris. With intrigue, danger, murder, terrorist, a kidnapping, suspense, passion and a race for time, readers will be awe stricken, as Ms. Davis writes a story that plays out like, a movie. I was glued to the pages from the beginning to end. This is one of those stories that lingers in one’s mind, long after the ending.
An unbelievable realistic story, that felt as if it was pulled straight out of todays headlines!

I love Vonnie Davis’ complex, compelling, intriguing and powerful stories. She is an expert with characterization, descriptions and her plots are simply mesmerizing.
You don’t wish to miss this action packed Romantic Suspense! I can’t wait to read the next book in the “Paris Intrigue”. An amazing story! The battle of the sexes helped carry “Jean-Luc” along. Well done,Vonnie Davis!!

My thoughts:

ROAMING WILD by Tracey Devlyn is an amazing Romantic Suspense. “Steele Ridge” Book 6 , but can be read as a stand alone. If you enjoy family saga, then I’d suggest reading the other 5 books in the series. However, not necessary to enjoy this story.

The hero was a ruggedly sexy, strong and a protective, alpha male. The heroine was feisty, brave and brazen, a true heroine. I loved Evie and Deke, their story was intriguing in itself, but when added in the suspense, and mystery, WOW!

The conflict was enough to keep me turning pages. I was emotionally invested from the first page to the last. The plot flowed seamlessly and continuingly. Fast paced and action packed with conflict, danger around every corner and the wildlife aspect was a plus for me. I enjoyed the fact Evie had issues, with panic attacks, as one who suffers from them occasionally, the author nailed it!

An intriguing story with all the drama, emotions, conflict, suspense, mystery and romance a great Romantic Suspense should have to impress readers and keep them returning to Steele Ridge. Simply flawless, in my humble opinion!

A must read for Romantic Suspense lovers, and fans of the “Steele Ridge” saga. Tracey Devlin is one of my favorite Romantic Suspense authors. She writes such thrilling, page turning stories, with emotional turmoil, as well as family oriented stories. The twists and turns were surprising, intriguing, and impressive. Another hit for Tracey Devlin!! Can’t wait to visit “Steele Ridge” again, and learn what is in store for readers and the Steele family. I adore the Steele family!

Product Description

He loved her beyond anything and everything—precisely why he couldn’t ever marry her.

A wounded hero.

Love—sentimental drivel for insipid, weak, feckless fools.

Since an explosion ravaged Captain Morgan Le Draco’s face and cost him his commission in the Royal Dragoons, he’s fortified himself behind an impenetrable rampart of cynicism and distrust. Now destitute and shunned by the very society that once lauded his heroics, he’s put aside all thoughts of marrying and having a family. Until he risks his life to save a drowning woman. At once, Morgan knows Shona’s the balm for his tortured soul, but as a wealthy, titled noblewoman, she’s too far above his humble station and can never be his.

An intrepid wallflower.

Love—a treasured gift reserved for those beautiful of form and face.

Scorned and ridiculed most of her adult life, Shona, Lady Atterberry believes she’s utterly undesirable and is reconciled to spinsterhood. She hides her spirited temperament beneath a veneer of gauche shyness, until a strapping, scarred stranger saves her life, and she can’t deny her immediate, powerful, and sensual attraction to him. Despite how ill-suited they are and innuendos that Captain Le Draco is a fortune-hunter, she cannot escape her growing fascination.

Two damaged souls searching for love.

Others are determined to keep them apart, and Shona is goaded into placing a wicked wager. One that sets her upon a ruinous path and alienates the only man who might have ever loved her. Is true love enough to put their pasts behind them, to learn to trust, and heal their wounded hearts?

Warning: This book contains one devilish, seemingly irredeemable rogue, an on-the-shelf wallflower who dabbles in wicked wagers, an unexpected and most enticing swim in a lake, a villainess you’ll want to shove into said lake, and a cast of captivating secondary characters with their own tantalizing romantic tales.

For a heartwarming, inspiring story about the power of love, purchase your copy today of THE WALLFLOWER’S WICKED WAGER, the fifth installment in Collette Cameron’s romantic historical Regencies A Waltz with a Rogue Novella series.

My thoughts:

THE WALLFLOWER’S WICKED WAGER by Collette Cameron is another skillfully written story by this author. Set at Davenswood Court, Buckinghamshire in 1891. A WALTZ WITH A ROGUE novella.
Brilliantly and masterfully written story with flawed characters, raw emotions, and the the power of love. The hero is a ruggedly sexy, strong and protective. The heroine is feisty, a bit shy, has low self esteem, due to abuse by her mother, but she becomes brave and brazen, to say the least.

This is the story of Captain Morgan Le Draco, a wounded hero, who suffered horribly from fire, during the war, which scarred his face and Shona, a intrepid wallflower. Two damaged souls in search of love, find each other.
I was totally charmed by these characters.

A great story with all the drama, emotions and conflict, a reader would wish for in a Historical Romance. As always, Ms. Collette has some humorous moments included, which adds to the charms of this cute and compelling story. A must read!!

Ms. Cameron is one of my favorite Historical Romance authors. She writes with such enthusiasm, understanding of human emotions, and adds a touch of humor, that leaves the reader breathless. A not to miss read!

Product Description

Pirate or Laird…?

Birk Bane was born the second son, the unwanted son, the unneeded son. Crossed by family and falsely accused of a crime, he flees Scotland to the sea where he’s recruited by a pirate. Five years later, he’s captain of his own ship and embraces his new life, though an ache for the woman he left behind remains. When he receives word of his father’s death and his clan is floundering, Birk begrudgingly returns home. Little does he know there’s more he left behind than a title…much more.

Sheena MacRae helped Birk escape to safety years ago, always expecting he’d return. Time passes and she believes him to be dead. With her clan being terrorized and slaughtered, she accepts she is the only one who can stop the suffering by agreeing to marry Laird Gordon, the man behind the assaults. The man who is also poised to rule Birk’s clan. Despite the crushing need to hold Birk in her arms once more, his reappearance changes nothing. Sheena has too much to lose if she reneges the betrothal to Gordon. And while Birk’s intentions are to return to the sea after reclaiming his clan, she didn’t count on her pirate lover’s plan for revenge…

The longer he’s home, the more betrayal Birk uncovers. There will be a fiery battle ahead for Birk and his brethren. If he survives, how will he choose between the life he loves and the love of his life?

 

 

 

My thoughts:

The Laird’s Reckoning by Jennifer Bray-Weber is a beautifully written Pirate Romance set in 1730. “Romancing the Pirate” #6, but can be read as a stand alone.
A quick read, with a cast of characters that will take your breath away. They are believable, engaging and strong characters. I was glued to the pages from the first sentence to the last. I connected with these colorful characters. Just couldn’t stop turning pages. The plot is filled with heart-pounding action, adventure, danger and romance. There are a some humorous moments to me, mixed in with the excitement of pirate fighting, passionate kisses, betrayal and a masterfully written love story.
“The Laird’s Reckoning” in humble opinion is a must read. Great for an afternoon read at the beach, where you can hear the ocean and feel the breeze, and image pirates attacking your peaceful world, or, you could read it anywhere.

Jennifer Bray-Weber is a masterful storyteller who writes brilliantly and passionately. She knows how to bring her point across to her readers, without leaving out any of the story. She does not disappoint her readers.
I highly recommend this quick read.

Description

The second exciting book in the bestselling 1797 Club series by USA TODAY Bestselling Author Jess Michaels.

Simon Greene, Duke of Crestwood has been obsessed with Margaret Rylon for years. There is only one thing standing between them: her fiancé, who also happens to be his best friend. He is desperate not to destroy everything in his life by giving in to his desires, but when Meg and Simon are trapped alone together overnight during a storm, the resulting scandal not only breaks Meg’s existing engagement, but forces Simon to offer for her instead.

Margaret is sorry to have hurt her family and her fiancé, but all she’s ever wanted was Simon. Her determination to make a happy life with him is only heightened when they submit to passions that have long dwelled beneath the surface. But while Simon may give her his body, he withholds his heart out of guilt and fear of what a connection to her may expose.

And if he doesn’t learn to fight for her soon, they both may lose a chance at happiness.

Length: Full length book

This is the second book in the 1797 Club series, but can be read as a standalone.

My thoughts: 

Her Favorite Duke by Jess Michaels is a sizzling but sweet Regency Romance. While, this is #2 in the series, “The 1797 Club” it can be read as a stand alone. See, “Her Daring Duke”, #1.

This is the story of Simon Greene, Duke of Crestwood, Margaret Rylon (Meg) who has been friends since childhood,
James, Duke of Abernathe, Meg’s brother and Graham, the Duke of Northfield, a other friend. Graham, James, and Simon are all part of the 1797 Club, however, Simon and Graham are the best of friends. Simon, has always been considered the peacemaker of the group, but in reality he appears a bit of a spineless coward, toward his feelings for Meg. Meg becomes betrothed to Graham, by her brother, James, none knowing her true feelings for Simon, oh, they suspect but go forward with there plans, anyway. To be honest James, suspects she just has a childhood infatuation for Simon.

Fast forward seven years later….. Meg and Graham finally set their wedding date. BTW Graham is not in love with Meg either. Simon guards his feelings for Meg until they’re caught in a compromising position, the wedding is off, Meg and Simon must marry. Yay!! Simon guards his feelings toward Meg, for fear of getting hurt. But his friendship is ended between him and Graham.

An unusual story to me, how many men or ladies, in fact, wait seven years before setting a wedding date? The reader is given the impression Graham had no amorous affairs, what, for seven years? Unbelievable, to me, but I suppose it could happen. Then there’s Meg, who does not reveal her true feeling, she’s waiting for Simon to step forward, and announce his feelings toward her. Simon is sweet, but an utter coward when it comes to his feelings toward Meg. So, they’d all rather be misable for the rest of their lives, then tell the truth. Oh, Graham, is marrying Meg to yes, you got it, to please his friend James. They are all rather young, in their teens, Meg’s sixteen, you understand their feelings run hot and cold, right?

While, this was not my favorite of Jess Michaels’ story, it was rather a sweet story, once you get pass all the other stuff. It’s a sizzling love story, with many complicated triangles.
A true love story with all the complications of a love triangle, while only two of them is truly in love. So, I guess, you wouldn’t call it a love triangle. The reader does learn why Simon is so guarded with his feelings.

No cliffnanger, however, I was left with a few unanswered questions. Such as what happens to Graham, and Simon’s hateful mother, the old Duchess of Crestwood.
The reader is given the impression, from the back of the book that, Graham’s story is next, which, I anticipate reading.
Please don’t get me wrong, I adore Ms. Michaels’ stories, “Her Favorite Duke” was a bit hard connect to the characters and grip the plot, to me, however I’d still recommend reading it, especially those who enjoy romance, there is a bit of mystery to why Simon guards his feelings. A good read!

Young widow, Grace, Lady de Courtenay, is more concerned with improving her mind than finding another husband. But how was she to know that a close encounter with a rake at a masquerade ball would spark her interest and make her yearn for love again?

Lord Nicholas Lacey has been on his own for far too long after losing his wife in a tragic accident. After a rare trip to a masquerade, his attention is captivated by a lovely young woman. Considering the dubious company she keeps, perhaps she might be interested in becoming his mistress…

From the darkened paths of Vauxhall Gardens to a countryside estate called Hollystone Hall, Nicholas and Grace must set aside their differences in order to let love into their hearts. It will take more than a dose of holiday cheer to see these two on the road to finding their happily-ever-after and a kiss for charity may just be what they both need.
