Read for Review (NetGalley) Overall Rating: 5.00 This book is wonderful and I’m trying not to spoil anything in this review. Captain Martin Bouchard, former American slave, escaped and eventually met Hugh Redvers who hired and taught him about ships. Martin now uses his ship to rescue Africans on the way to Europe or the United States to be slaves. Sarah Fisher’s parents were English missionaries and she was born in Africa. Due to her parents and many villagers’ deaths, she and the remaining villagers left to find a new home. They were taken and forced on a slave ship. Martin rescued them. Eventually they return to England where Sarah discovers she has relatives and money. Martin doesn’t think he’s good enough for her. It’s a truly wonderful read through the conflicts, love, uncertainty and eventually a HEA! Minerva Spencer is an automatic buy for me. If you haven’t read her you’re missing wonderful stories.
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 am so thrilled Kaitlin O’Riley is writing again! Her first series about the five Hamilton sisters who run the family book shop is one of my all-time favorites. Those books have been re-read and sit on a keeper shelf.

This is the first book in Madeline Hunter’s new series and I think you’ll enjoy it. I certainly did. Adam Penrose, Duke of Stratton, has been living for several years in France. When his father committed suicide he and his French mother moved to France. He has returned to England to discover who started the rumors that his father aided the French during the Napoleonic wars. His best friends from childhood, the dukes of Bentwood and Langford, will help him.
