Will the bonds of love prove stronger than a man back from the dead and bent on revenge?

Miles Lawrence Hawkins, the fifth Earl of Archewyne, is determined to retire from life as a king’s man. Working clandestine cases for the Crown might be in his blood, but keeping his family safe is a more paramount concern. When he and his wife are kidnapped, the chances of escaping slip away, especially when the man behind the insane plan is his brother, Nigel, who has been assumed dead for years.

A mysterious note arrives following the unexpected death of her father blaming her husband for that event, and the Countess of Archewyne wonders what game is afoot. Doubts and fears add to growing ennui when Emmaline lands in a world of pain and confusion. A masked captor makes hideous demands unless she and the earl provide classified information. Through it all, she clings to her love for her husband while biding her time.

Physical and emotional torture continues until the reason is finally revealed—to lure the Duke of Rathesborne into the web to answer for his alleged crimes against Nigel. As their world tilts on the whim of a mad man, they both battle to survive. Nothing short of a miracle can put their lives back together again or repair the damage gained in captivity, but fighting for the future is well worth any cost.

Trigger Warning: Some of the content found in this book may be triggering and/or sensitive. Physical and mental abuse, sexual violence, sexual assault and attempted rape/abuse may be some of the topics mentioned within the pages and might illicit a strong or potentially harmful emotional response.

My Review

Sandra does it again with another breathtaking adventure and story of love beating the odds. The emotions hit you from page drawing you into the story and not letting go. I was so worried about her and Miles because of that note that I didn’t see their kidnapping coming until it happened. The whole time they are held captive was another emotional rollercoaster. Between them willing to die for each other, knowing the secrets, and the torture they were going through I was holding my breath at every turn. I was really afraid of what would happen during another one of Sandra’s amazing fight scenes. So much going on and the details that keep you on the edge until the end. Nigel was truly evil and crazy and he may be the villain to top all villains. When it came to the end there were still many emotions. I was sad, relieved, happy, and amused with how their lives were going to change and that his decision was made for him.

Emmaline is in a bad place in her mind because of everything that has happened. I was hurting for her as she was going through everything from the start and cheering her on. She continues to be a favorite with how she’s strong, but also still a human and not immune to things. When that spark returned to her I wanted to jump up and down. Especially when she put on a show.

Miles is still trapped in that mindset of their work puts them in danger and afraid he will lose his wife. I love that his humor still comes through no matter what and that he doesn’t give up. He also was going through his own emotions because of everything, but his love for her would not let him give up. I feared he would have to make a decision he shouldn’t, but it all worked out.

I wanted to help Peter so much and loved seeing Jonathon again.

I agree with the trigger warning of this book. It is a pretty intense book and the emotions and many of the scenes could be triggering to some readers. To give you an idea of how intense scenes are I would say its up near Outlander level. Not as graphic, but the emotions are there and details are still intense.

Finding a worthy husband should be simple for three beautiful debutantes in Regency London. But the Somerset sisters have a way of making it delightfully complicated…

Violet Somerset has always preferred a library to a ballroom, but to please her grandmother she agreed to one London season. With nothing to show for it but heartbreak, she’s reconciled to spinsterhood. Until a notorious rogue known as the Devil of Dare requests an introduction to her timid, gentle youngest sister, Hyacinth. Violet will do anything to stop the match—even if it means posing as Hyacinth herself.

Nicholas Balfour, the Earl of Dare, is enjoying the life of a rake far too much to take a wife. But he must keep his promise to his grandmother. He’ll simply choose the meekest bride he can find, install her at his estate, then carry on as before. Hyacinth sounds perfect—until he discovers that her sweet demeanor hides the tongue of a viper and the mind of a bluestocking.

As Violet’s ruse threatens to unravel, however, she may find the tables turned. Soon she may have no choice but to tolerate her handsome fiancée—or fall in love with him.

My Review

A wild ruse and past ghosts will bring these two together and it won’t be a fairytale. There are quite a few ups and downs with them and you may want to knock them both upside the head. But you will love them both in the end. Their first meeting was a confusing mess that led them on an adventure. I knew they were a perfect match when it came to the conversation in the museum and everything afterwards. The way he found out about the ruse was not how I expected and I didn’t see the rest coming. When they finally were happy I wanted to cheer.

Violet is not your average bluestocking with where her interests lay, but that’s what makes her perfect! I loved her from the start because of how different she was and that she wasn’t afraid to ask questions about anything. She almost gave up, but then she had the perfect plan that made me smile and laugh.

Nicholas is not how he appears to others and is haunted by ghosts of his past. As you get to know his story it’s heartbreaking and explains so much about his. When she made him see what the real problem was it was like he was a new man. I loved him from the start because he cared about her right away and didn’t realize it.

I absolutely loved Gibbs in every scene and agreed with her grandmother near the end.

Descent into darkness…
Six years after his betrothed was murdered in the foyer of his London home, Daniel Harrington, the Marquess of Ravenhall, is consumed by rage and a thirst for justice. He spends his days searching for the man who killed his love and works tirelessly to right the injustices of others. Nothing, however, seems to heal the hole left in his heart. Though he vows to never love another, his father, the Duke of Ware, has other ideas. Tired of his son’s disregard for his birthright, the duke arranges for his son to be married to Lady Christina Princeton.

Longing for love…

Christina Princeton has longed for a Season to choose for herself the perfect companion with whom to share a life. Convinced by her father that she is too plain, too plump, and too practical, she wishes for a man who can see her for the woman she is inside. Dismayed when her father reveals his plans for her marriage, she considers the option until she finds the man she is to marry is the very same she witnessed carrying out an act of shocking violence.

Despite the wall Daniel has built around his heart, Christina slowly begins to pry through the cracks, searching for the kind, caring man of whom she has seen but glimpses. With the past haunting them and new dangers emerging, they must help one another fight all that threatens them. Will they be lost to the darkness forever, or will new love overcome all odds?

The last book in the Searching Hearts series, this can be read as a standalone novel. It’s a guaranteed happily ever after! For readers 18+, due to some steamy content.

My Review

A darker read that will have you hoping and leave you shocked! This one is not full of fluff which I love because you get characters that really need saving and love. Both will pull at your heart in different ways and shock you at times. Their first meeting most definitely was not a good one, but it lit the spark. They came to an agreement, but of course, their hearts aren’t going to listen. When they finally give in it’s an explosion. I was so sucked into the story that I jumped at the same time characters did because I did see the person coming. The killer was a complete shock that I did not see coming at all and the ending to that made me hold my breath.

Christina is not your typical lady and I wouldn’t mess with her. At first, she comes off a little pushing, but she grows on you with how forward she is in telling him what she wants. She really kept her head high even with everything her father would say to her. I loved her spirit.

Daniel is being held by such a powerful need for justice that its heartbreaking. There is so much more to him than meets the eye. The work he does is amazing, but also a bit scary with somethings that are hinted at. I held my breath when he went out for the last time afraid he would go through with his plan. When he let go it was like a new person.

I loved his family and friend because they all wanted him to be happy. Her father I think really was trying to make sure she was happy but didn’t know how to interact with her.

USA Today bestselling author Christi Caldwell pits a fiercely independent beauty against a devilish investigator.

Set apart by her ethereal beauty and fearless demeanor, Ophelia Killoran has always been a mystery to those around her—and a woman they underestimated. No one would guess that she spends her nights protecting the street urchins of St. Giles. Ophelia knows what horrors these children face. As a young girl, she faced those horrors herself, and she would have died…if not for the orphan boy who saved her life.

A notorious investigator, Connor Steele never expected to encounter Ophelia Killoran on his latest case. It has been years since he sacrificed himself for her. Now, she hires orphans from the street to work in her brother’s gaming hell. But where does she find the children…and what are her intentions?

Ophelia and Connor are at odds. After all, Connor now serves the nobility, and that is a class of people Ophelia knows firsthand not to trust. But if they can set aside their misgivings and work together, they may discover that their purposes—and their hearts—are perfectly aligned.

My Review

I held my breath, I cried, I cheered, and I screamed throughout this story and loved every bit of it! You will need your tissues and if like me a fur baby nearby with all the intense emotions in this story. I was hooked from the start and every page pulled me deeper. Their story is such a powerful one with so many things against them, but love wins over some of the worst things out there. I loved that they always had a connection even though they didn’t see eye to eye. The investigation of his took a turn I did not see coming and there were more twists and turns I didn’t see coming at all. There were characters that I was set on loving and disliking that true colors came to light and changed my opinions of them so much. I was completely shocked by what happened near the end and wanted to scream, but absolutely loved the twist of how that turned out. I was left with serious book hangover and wanting more.

Ophelia is not a jewel she is an angel that does what she must to save the children on the streets. She is one of the few heroines to pull at my heart more than the hero. I cried and held my breath with the flashes of her memories and why she saved kids the way she did. Even with her tough front, she put out there I loved her right away because she would do anything for others.

Connor never let go of his roots and helped those that needed. His full story broke my heart, but he pushed forward with his mission and made a difference. He won me over from the start with how he sacrificed himself and how he saw others. I cried from him when his father did what he did and hoped it would turn out for the better. He was amazing and what she needed as much as he needed her.

After a failed abduction attempt, Lady Rachel is sent into hiding on her uncle’s estate near the sleepy village of Rockcliffe on the shores of Scotland. As she struggles to cope with the nightmares of her past, she unwittingly stumbles into even greater danger than she left behind. And this time, Shadow isn’t around to save her.

Luke Beckett, the Marquess of Downshire, was content running his stud farm in solitude, far from the scheming of the devious women of Society. That is, until his neighbor’s infuriatingly contrary niece rides into his life. Hiding behind the guise of a common horse trainer, he begins to form a peculiar friendship with Lady Rachel, without the constraints of his title. However, the longer the ruse continues, the more Luke realizes there is much more at stake than just their friendship.

With the looming threat of a French invasion, Luke and Rachel must work together to stop the tangled web of treachery before it is too late. When the truth is finally revealed, will they have the strength to trust each other with their hearts, or will the fear of rejection destroy their relationship before it has a chance to begin?

My Review

Oh, what a tangled mess leaving out a bit of information can become. With every book in this series, its get better and better. Laura just gives you more characters to love and nail-biting adventure that brings the spies together again. I couldn’t put it down from the moment Rachel started talking on the way to her uncle’s home. I knew it was going to be fun and a wild adventure. Their first meeting is one of the best I have seen and makes it clear they are going to be put through it all. I loved the twist on his ruse with how many people were involved and why. As with the other books, you will not see anything coming and will find yourself cheering, laughing, and crying throughout the story. Many answers are in this book, but just as many new questions to keep you asking for more.

Rachel definitely has been through it all, but it hasn’t killed her heart of gold. She is a woman that makes her own choices and is not your typical Lady on the ton. I was excited to see her get her own story and get to know her more. I loved that she wanted to help everyone, but wouldn’t hesitate to lay into them as needed. She didn’t give up easily and did things she never imagined she would have to.

Luke has a hard shell and won’t win you over right away, but you will love him as you get to know him. He hates what society expects and wants to avoid marriage and women for the most heartbreaking reasons. I loved that he didn’t realize how much he could scare people and when he was cornered by his siblings. He would give up everything for her even if it meant himself.

I will never get tired of the Beckett family or Mr. Larson. I hope to see more of Rachel’s cousin because of his story and David’s sister because she seems like she will be fun.

He’s turned seduction into an art form…

Rafe Beaumont, fifth son of an earl, uses his irresistible charm with the ladies to glean dangerous war secrets. Now he’s putting those skills to the ultimate test: capturing an elusive assassin by seducing his daughter. The problem? She’s entirely immune to Rafe’s flattery.

Never before has Collette Fortier met a man as attractive as Rafe. But her father’s life is at stake, and succumbing to Rafe would be disastrous. But when Rafe turns the tables on her, offering support and friendship instead of a fleeting affair, Collette finds herself tempted in ways she never could have imagined…

My Review

The seducer has met his match and jumped without a thought into the flames. I couldn’t put it down from the start wondering what would happen between them and when. They both had reasons for avoiding each other, but to everyone else, they were stupid to try. I was on the edge of my seat when they came up with their plan. At every turn, they were met with a fight and sometimes a friend, but it was always a surprise. I wanted to scream when he went back to London, but the talk he had with his stepmother and other were so worth it. The ending was perfect especially with what she made him do. I hope to see them again and Grimes was an interesting man.

Collette will do anything to save her father even shielding her heart. I loved her right away because she tried so hard to find what she needed and wouldn’t give up. She let fear and her mission blind, but not completely.

Rafe always wanted the exciting mission he just didn’t realize this one would turn into one. He will break your heart with his reason for not wanting to marry and win you over with his charm and kindness. I loved that he was willing to do anything to help.

I can’t wait for the next story!

WAGERS GO AWRY

Payton Samuels has always known she wants more out of life than being the youngest daughter of the ton’s most disreputable family. While her siblings are content to bet their future happiness on marriage, Payton learned early on from her mother that love is fleeting and leads only to disappointment. She’s got a different plan: she’ll work as a governess for Baron Ashford’s children, but only long enough to win her fortune at one of his infamous masked gaming parties. When she loses big, Payton sees her chance at an independent life go up in flames—until Lord Ashford surprises her by paying her debts.

WHEN LOVE IS IN THE CARDS.

Since the tragic death of his wife, Damon Kinder, Lord Ashford, has been a man made of ice. His determination to never be hurt by love again runs so deep that he can’t even connect with his children. When they quickly take to Payton, he thinks he’s found a solution: she’ll give them the affection and support he can’t. As he spends more time around Payton, his heart begins to defrost, and he can’t stop thinking about the captivating governess.

But every seasoned gambler knows that eventually, luck runs out. Can two souls so burned by past loves forge a new future together?

My Review:  My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤ Spice Level: 💋

I think this is my favorite in this series! A man of ice just needs a little melting and Payton is just the warm heart that can do. You know when children are involved that its going to be a fun time. I was hooked from the start with her in the closet and couldn’t wait to see what she did. The spark between them will leave you breathless and so will the words between them at times. Theirs is an intense story from his heartbreak and protecting her to her gambling and the fight in her.

Payton has her eyes on a better path, but she just doesn’t know the end is so close. She will win you over right away with how she doesn’t hold back and loves the children. I loved when she realized that she had found the right path.

Damon is a shattered man that thinks he is protecting his kids and himself by being a man of ice. Don’t be fooled by him at first because he will melt your heart once you hear his story and get to know him. I loved when he opened his heart again even if he didn’t know it.

I can only imagine what these children will be like when they are older.

IT’S NOT FAIR!
Titled rakes can practically get away with murder, but one tiny little misstep and a debutante is sent away to the country. Which is where Lady Natalie Spencer is stuck after jilting her betrothed.
Frustrated with her banishment, she’s finished being a good girl and ready to be a little naughty.
Luckily she has brothers, one of whom has brought home his delightfully gorgeous friend.
After recently inheriting an earldom, Garrett Castleton is determined to turn over a new leaf and shed the roguish lifestyle he adopted years ago.
His friend’s sister, no matter how enticing, is out-of-bounds. He has a run-down estate to manage and tenants to save from destitution.
Can love find a compromise between the two, or will their stubbornness get them into even more trouble?

My Review

A heart-melting Earl with a heartbreaking story meets his match with a lady rake that is just what he needs! I was so happy to see Natalie get her own story and she does not disappoint. They are like to halves to a whole heart from the start even though you wouldn’t think so by the way they act at first. I loved getting to know both of them and uncovering their own stories as they did with each other.  They came from two very different upbringings, but both had scandals that put them at risk. I was holding my breath wishing for a certain twist and wanted to jump up down when it appeared. I did not see the twist of what happened with the trunk coming and was worried for a bit. I laughed when it came to her mother and godmother coming up with a plan. The ending was perfect and I hope to see her brothers again.

Natalie did what she had to so that two people that truly loved each other could be happy. She just didn’t expect the rules and lectures that followed. I loved her right away and especially as soon as she decided to take control and be free. She never shied away from anything and really understood him more than anyone.

Garrett is free from his father, but not the scandal that surrounded him. He broke my heart with his fears and reasons for not wanting to marry. But he also was heart-melting with how he listened to her and asked the questions that no one else did. When he discovered the truth it was like a weight off of his shoulders and he had the support he needed.

Some secrets should never be unveiled…

Heath Grenville is the problem-solver for London’s elite. Unmask the devious cretin skewering the ton with audacious caricatures? With pleasure. His success should keep the powerful happy. But when his work leads him to a young lady outside his class, surely he won’t do anything so scandalous as to fall in love

By day, Miss Eleanora Winfield is a proper, unremarkable paid companion. By night, Nora’s skillful hands sketch the infamous penny caricatures rocking high society. Nora desperately needs the money…and her anonymity. But how can she keep them both, when she’s fallen for the one man whose livelihood and reputation requires him to expose her?

My Review

Love has a way of making two worlds collide. From the moment they met, it was love at first sight and I knew it was going to be interesting to see how they got together. The story keeps you on the edge on your seat wondering how and when he will find out about the caricatures. I loved that it overlapped a bit with Lord of Pleasure. His sisters add so much to things and so does her cousin.

Nora does what she has to so that her family is taken care of even something she doesn’t want to. I loved her right away with her attitude towards things and her skills. She didn’t hold back when someone did or said something wrong.

Heath does his job very well, but its not the dream he has. I loved how much he loved his sisters and that his work helped them. He may put family and keeping the tons secrets, but he listens and understands too.
