Read for Review (NetGalley) Overall Rating: 5.00 A Christmas Abduction – Adam Prescott, Baron Thornhill, is on the way to a family Christmas when he is held up and kidnapped by a woman (Caroline) and Jason, a young man who works on her horse farm. Caroline believes he took advantage of her now pregnant sister, Amelia. Snowbound, he realizes she’s had some troubles on the farm and helps her. I enjoyed this very good short story with twists and turns. A Perfect Match – Miss Cassandra Isles is repulsed by the handsome Capt. Lionel Malet who escorts her, and her rich younger cousin, Katherine, to a ball. Malet wants to marry Kitty but she likes their solicitor, Mr. Adams. Cassandra wants to marry for love and doesn’t discuss her money. Looking for her cousin on the terrace she meets Col. Lord Heywood Wolfe. Fearing Malet will kidnap Kitty, Heywood takes the girls to his broken-down estate. Much more going on in this story, but I won’t ruin it! One Wicked Winter Night – Lady Diana Lawrence (30) is the black sheep of her family. She has traveled for more than 7 years after a doomed affair and is currently in […]

Read for Review (Publisher Copy) Overall Rating: 5.00 What a wonderful start to a new series! I loved it. Fletcher Pryde, Duke of Greycourt aka Grey, has learned that his stepfather, the only father he really knew, has died. He travels to Lincolnshire to support his mother, Lydia, half-brother Sheridan and the rest of the family which includes cousins Beatrice Wolfe and her brother Joshua who was injured in war. Sheridan believes his father may have been murdered and wants Grey’s help to solve. To help his mother he agrees to stay at Armitage Hall. She decides he must teach his sister, Lady Gwyn, and Beatrice to dance. Grey thinks Beatrice is hiding something and is determined to find out. He’s particularly wary of Joshua. He falls for her, but won’t marry her or will she change his mind? There is so much going on in this “can’t put it down” book and I won’t spoil it. I appreciate the author’s originality as it’s wonderful to read something different. I can’t wait for the other brothers and sisters to get their HEA! I was given an ARC by the publisher at an author/reader event and no one asked me to […]

I have read and loved all the Sinful Suitors series, but this one might be my favorite. Niall Lindsey fought and killed a man in a duel for good reason. He must flee to Europe and wants his love, Brilliana, to come with him. She refuses to go with him as her mother is very ill. Seven years later he is pardoned, but the government insists he work for them on a case that involves Brilliana’s father, Sir Oswald Payne.
