Product Description

Quiet, reserved, Lady Ophelia Fletcher always has her nose stuck in a book; hence why she didn’t witness the death of her friend the fateful night of her passing. Now, she writes the Mayfair Confidential column to expose unsavory men as a way of making amends for not backing her other friend’s claims of murder. When a handsome stranger arrives to meet with her father, Ophelia is helpless to keep from investigating the dashing lord.

Colin Parnell, Lord Hawke, has a promise to uphold: find the book that proves his grandpapa worked as a spy for King George II and did not die as a no-good smuggler off the coast of Kent. Shrouded in mystery and scandal, the Parnell family has been at war with one another for decades, and Colin is determined to put a stop to it all by discovering proof of the family’s honorable past. Unfortunately, the book he seeks is in the hands of a fiery-haired beauty, and he’ll need to enlist Ophelia’s help to uncover the truth.

Ophelia is more than happy to use her skills to help Lord Hawke. But will their search for answers lead to misadventure, or will they get something greater than they bargained for: the truth and each other?

 

 

From the author:

Three innocent debutantes must work to solve the mysterious death of their childhood friend. With undaunted determination they pledge to not only expose the man responsible for their friend’s tragic death on her wedding night, but to also uncover other unscrupulous men of the ton who would jeopardize the future of other young women. 

 

 

My thoughts:

The Misadventures of Lady Ophelia (The Undaunted Debutantes Book 3) by Christina McKnight. Book 3 and the final book in “The Undaunted Debutantes” series. Final book of this amazing series. While, book 3, it can be read as a stand alone, however, I’d suggest reading the other two in this series, to learn more of the friends, but not necessary to enjoy Ophelia’s story.

Lady Ophelia Fletcher, is quiet, reserved, always has in a book in hand, which is why she didn’t witness the death of her friend. She now writes the Mayfair Confidential column, which exposes unsavory men, this is her way of making amends for not backing her other friend’s claims of murder. Guilt of not witnessing her friends death has driven her for years but can love safe her.

Colin Parnell, Lord Hawke, has a promised his grandpapa to find the book that proves his grandpapa worked as a spy for King George II and did not die as a smuggler off the coast of Kent. He wishes to re-claim his family’s honor, the scandal that surrounds them, and their good name. Will Colin and Ophelia find the true treasure, finding love and their HEA? Ophelia and Colin are wonderful characters and readers see Ophelia grow from a timid and reserved young lady to an outspoken lady, who speaks her mind.
The cast of characters are enjoyable, creative and realistic. Steady paced with a few twists and turns. The plot flows seamlessly and is written with detail to history, details of the area, with intrigue, danger, passion and adventure.
I hate to see this series come to an end, but all good things must.
Once again Ms. McKnight demonstrates her skills as an author. She never disappoints her readers. If you enjoy adventure, mystery, suspense, and intrigue, “The Misadventures of Lady Ophelia” is the right choice of reading material. A joy to read and strongly recommended.

Description (From Amazon)

Read the next in the family saga of the historical Scottish Grant and Ramsay clans.

She convinces her brother’s best friend to help her stop a war. But will they provoke one instead?

Kyla Grant once believed her sire, the legendary Alexander Grant, was invincible, but his brush with death changed her mind. The whole clan is still reeling from Alex’s battle injury when a new threat arises from their long-time rivals, the Buchan clan. Kyla, convinced that the Grants cannot take another battle, is desperate for a peaceful resolution. Her plan is to make a personal appeal to the Buchan’s only living child, Davina, but she knows her parents would never allow her to risk her safety…

Finlay MacNicol is always quick with a joke, but life has never given him less to laugh about. His mother is dying, and yet another battle is on the horizon. When his laird assembles a group of warriors for a scouting mission to the Buchans, Finlay does his duty and joins them. He thought he knew what to expect from the mission, but he certainly didn’t expect that Kyla would sneak along, or that his laird would assign him as her protector. Kyla’s beauty has always affected Finlay, but her bravery and sweetness soon stir deeper feelings.

After visiting Davina, Kyla becomes determined to rescue the lass from the clutches of her abusive sire. Finlay agrees to help her, but there’s a risk they may provoke a war rather than prevent one.

My thoughts:

Kyla by Keira Montclair is one of those WOW stories. While, book 9 in her popular “The Highland Clan”, it can be read as a stand alone.

I was enticed and enthralled with Kyla Grant and Finlay MacNicol’s story. Well written, fast paced with an enjoyable and captivating cast of characters, both good and evil. The storyline flows seamlessly with intrigue, a bit of mystery and suspense, that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat. The plot is intriguing and captivating.
I was glued to the pages of Kyla and Finlay’s trust, and their love of each other and their clan. Kyla has such a tender heart, she gets herself and Finlay in a world of trouble when she tries to help her new friend, Davina, the daughter of Clan Grant and Clan Ramsey’s worst enemy, Buchan Clan.
My heart broke for Finlay and Kyla as they try to survive their ordeal with the horrible Glenn Buchan, his creed, his thirst for revenge and his desire to be a powerful chieftain.

The reader will found themselves thoughly invested in “Kyla”, from the romance to the intense suspense to the fighting and more. I absolutely love Kyla, Finlay, and the next generation of Grants and Ramsey’s. Such a fresh story with refreshing characters. I look forward to the next story in “The Highland Clan” family saga, which promises to be Bethia Ramsay’s story. The author gives readers a bit of insight into her story through the epilogue.
Keira Monclair is an amazing storyteller with her characters, her vivid descriptions and her knowledge of Scottish clans, family sagas, romance and passion. Simply mesmerizing! ! A keeper and true treasure of Scottish Romance. Another hit by Keira Montclair.

Description

Secrets. Lies. And a second chance at love…

Torn from the only man she’d ever loved by a tragic secret, Mara Miller has traveled a long and difficult road. From poverty and the workhouses, she’s finally made a life for herself as the owner of a small haberdashery in London. With her companion, Big B, an African slave she’d helped escape from a Brazilian slaver, she’s made a fresh start. But when the past walks into her shop—in the form of the ever-handsome Roarke Garrott, Viscount Eversleigh—Mara feels her whole world crash to her feet. Thrust back into a web of lies, deceit, and manipulation, Mara is forced to face the one man she’d sworn to forget.

For the past seven years, Roarke had sequestered himself in India to mourn Mara’s death. Vowing to move on and put the past behind him, he returns to London, only to find himself gazing into those beautiful green eyes he believed he’d never see again. Now he’s found her—alive and trying to deny who she was. A million feelings wash over him. Joy. Fury. Heartbreak. He would have the truth from her—of where she’d gone, and why—but when trouble from the past finds Mara and Big B, the truth becomes secondary to saving Mara’s life. After just learning that the woman he’d loved is alive, Roarke is not about to lose her again…

My thoughts:

Where the Viscount Met His Match (Ways of Love Book 2) by Tabetha Waite is a Regency Romance by this amazing and masterful author. While, book 2, it can be read as a stand alone.
I absolutely love Mara Miller, which we met in book 1, and Roarke Garrott, Viscount Eversleigh, the love of Mara’s life, but she lost him several years prior due to a tragic event that forced Mara to fake her own death. A story filled with a web of lies, deceit, manipulation, sacrifice and so much more. Now, he’s walked back into her life. I found these characters to be tortured souls, torn apart by a huge secret then thrust back together again, by unseen circumstances, to be heart a wrenching, engaging and very enjoyable read. The secondary characters are enjoyable and help move the story along. The plot is intriguing, very interesting and captivating. The storyline flows seamlessly and is well executed, in my humble opinion.

A story of love, grief, secrets, a tragic kidnapping, deceit, mental illness and second chances at finding a HEA. The twists and turns were magnificent and well done to deliver a most fantastic Regency Romance. A bit of mystery, suspense and the romance, was absolutely enticing and delightful to read.
Ms. Waite, captured my attention and held me glued to the pages of this gripping and brilliantly written story.

This is Ms. Waite’s second novel but she writes like a master, fully engaging her readers with characterizations, her descriptions, her detail to research, and the Era she’s writing. Just stunning and very well written! Fast paced with page turning mystery and suspense. The romance to me was wonderful, seeming realistic and believable.

A powerful, yet sweet romance with twists and turns. I look forward to reading more, in this fascinating series!
WHERE THE VISCOUNT MET HIS MATCH ends with the reader learning some of Roarke’s sister’s story, which just made me want more. A must read Regency Romance by an upcoming and rising author, Tabetha Waite! A definite keeper. I can see me reading this story and book 1, over again. A true treasure! Well done, Tabetha Waite! !

Description

Thunder claps roar and Odin’s ravens fly. Fearsome dragonships set sail – and the kingdoms of Western Europe hold their breath. Warriors of Thor are on the move. By the mid-ninth century, raids along Anglo-Saxon coasts by the pagan Danes have escalated, and as the raiders become bolder, attacks move deeper and deeper inland. Several bands even dare to overwinter on the coastal islands, particularly those at the mouth of the Thames, where the kingdoms of Wessex and Mercia border each other. After three hundred years of bitter conflict over supremacy, the kings of these kingdoms are ready to put past enmity aside and take the first steps towards unity; steps they see as vital in the face of this newfound threat to their lands . . . Alfred of Wessex and Eadwulf of Mercia are the sons of kings, their roles in life already charted. But the turbulent events in their childhood years change the natural progression of things – and determine the characters of the men they will become. Their roads to manhood follow vastly different routes: Eadwulf as a thrall in a pagan land; Alfred at his father’s court, and subsequently, those of his older brothers. But both learn crucial lessons along the way. Discovering that the enemy is not always a stranger is a harsh lesson indeed; the realisation that a trusted kinsman can turn traitor is the harshest lesson of all. The story takes us from the kingdoms of Mercia and Wessex to the Norse lands stretching north from Denmark to the Arctic Circle and east to the Baltic Sea. We glimpse the Court of Charles the Bald of West Francia and journey to the holy city of Rome. Through it all, the two boys move ever closer to their destinies.

Ms. Thom did an excellent job of conveying her message to her readers, with her descriptions, her characterizations, and her in depth information. Her research totally shines through in this story of romance, love and turmoil. I did feel it ended a bit abruptly. No cliffhanger, but a need to read the next one. An enjoyable read!

My thoughts:

The Knight’s Scarred Maiden (Lovers and Legends) by Nicole Locke is a superb Medieval Historical Romance. While, #5 in her “Lovers and Legends” series, it can be read as a stand alone. This is one of those WOW stories, that grabs you and won’t let go. It lingers long after the last page.

But who rescues whom, the scarred lady from her mercenary knight’s inner tormoil and his linage, or the gentle mercenary from his lady’s outward appearance,from her tragic past.

This story is a tale of beauty and the beast reversed. The hero has the beauty and the heroine is considered the beast, due to her multiple scars. A tale that will capture your heart and hold the reader in awe.

Well written, with enjoyable, engaging and likeable characters. The storyline flows seemingly and is well executed. The plot is intriguing and captivating.

Filled with grief, hurt, lost, faith and the magical power of love and acceptance. An emotional and heart wrenching tale.

What a fast paced tale with a most enjoyable cast of characters. Well written with many twists and turns, secrets, passion, healing, danger and romance in a time of great Scottish turmoil, treacherous, intrigue and betrayal.

Logan Mackenzie, Helena and Logan’s beloved sister, Mairin, are the stars in “The Promise of a Highlander”, and what a cast they present. A heart warming, gut wrenching and delicious love story.

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!

BOOK TWO: The Stolen Bride Series

What is a Highlander to do when he falls for the daughter of his enemy?

Highland warrior, Blane Sutherland, has one mission: disguise himself as an Englishman, cross the border and retrieve Lady Aliah de Mowbray. Always up for a challenge, he agrees, pursuing his conquest with vigor—and trying to deny the powerful desire that eclipses him each time he touches his charge. A rogue of the highest order and a younger son, he has nothing to offer a lady but a broken heart.

And what is a lady to do when she cannot trust her heart?

Aliah is skeptical of the English noble who has come to take her to her father and sister in Scotland, but she pushes her doubts aside. Without word in months, she must make certain her family is safe, then she can return to England to join the convent to which she has sworn to pledge her life. But then her escort reveals his true self—he’s a Highlander and his kisses are more seductive than the sweetest of wines.

Surrender never tasted so sweet…

My thoughts: 

The Highlander’s Conquest (Stolen Bride #2) by Eliza Knight is a fantastic Medieval Scottish Romance set in England and Scotland. While, #2, it can be read as a stand alone. If you’ve not had a chance to read “The Highlander’s Reward”, #1, I’d definitely suggest reading it as well, as this is the story of Blane Sutherland, younger brother to the Laird of Sutherland, who disguises himself as an Englishman to sale the Sutherland’s wool in England. So when it became necessary to retrieve his brother’s wife’s younger sister, of course, Blane was the man to cross the border and retrieve her, bring her to Scotland to reunite with her sister and father, who had been wounded. Lady Aliah de Mowbray, is feisty, doesn’t trust the barbarian Scots, beautiful, she’s been protected all her life, and plans to vow her life to the church, but when danger persists, she shows Blane she can handle a bow and arrow, just like her sister. Aliah and Blane are a wonderful couple, one who deserves their HEA, their pull toward each other kept me turning the pages, from the beginning to the end.

I thoroughly enjoyed “The Higlander’s Conquest”. Ms. Knight has done it again with her vivid details, her strong characters, and her engaging story. I strongly recommend “The Highlander’s Conquest”. What a great read by Eliza Knight!!
