Release Tour and Review for Hell Hath No Fury by Annabelle Anders

Title: Hell Hath No Fury
Author: Annabelle Anders
Genre: Regency
Publisher: Blue Tulip Publishing

Most London Misses are looking to find a husband, Cecily Nottingham wants to get rid of one.

To keep the money, he has to keep her as well…

Cecily Nottingham has made a huge mistake.

The marriage bed was still warm when the earl she thought she loved crawled out of it and announced that he loved someone else.

Loves. Someone else.

All he saw in Cecily was her dowry.

But he’s in for the shock of his life, because in order to keep the money, he has to keep her.

With nothing to lose, Cecily sets out to seduce her husband’s cousin, Stephen Nottingham, in an attempt to goad the earl into divorcing her. Little does she realize that Stephen would turn out to be everything her husband was not: Honorable, loyal, trustworthy…Handsome as sin.

Stephen only returned to England for one reason. Save his cousin’s estate from financial ruin. Instead, he finds himself face to face with his cousins beautiful and scorned wife, he isn’t sure what to do first, strangle his cousin, or kiss his wife. His honor is about to be questioned, right along with his self-control.

Amid snakes, duels and a good catfight, Cecily realizes the game she’s playing has high stakes indeed. There are only a few ways for a marriage to end in Regency England and none of them come without a high price. Is she willing to pay it? Is Stephen? A ‘Happily Ever After’ hangs in the balance, because, yes, love can conquer all, but sometimes it needs a little bit of help.

HHTF Review

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋💋💋

*I was provided a copy for my honest review.

This one is so different from any other that I have read and it is amazing! You will not be able to predict how it ends at all. I was hooked from the start in the ballroom when it was clear to everyone what they thought of each other. I somewhat felt bad for her husband especially after the duels, but the twist in the end killed that feeling and he got what he deserved. There were sparks from the start between them and I wanted them together so much. The ending was perfect and I loved how everyone ended up.

Cecily was not going to become one of the ladies that turned a blind eye to her husband’s doings. I loved her right away because she did not hide her feelings from anyone and was set on finding a way to have her freedom again. I cheered her on every time she stood up to someone.

Stephen was such an honorable man that would help both of them in any way he could. I loved him because he realized he couldn’t always fix something and when he let her loose with the pool cue. He blamed himself for things that weren’t his fault and needed to let go of that feeling.

I loved her friends because they were helping to plot and I loved her father because he made sure the contracts were in her favor. I would also fear him too because he would protect her.

“Stephen!” she gasped, shocked by what he seemed intent upon doing. “What on earth are you doing?”
He looked up at her, smiling lustily. “Nothing.”
And then he went about his business.
Not in a million years had she ever imagined allowing a man to do… this!
And with his mouth no less!
“Oh, my God! Stephen, you are wicked,” she said, feeling quite wicked herself as she grasped the sides of his head.
He was not to be deterred. His tongue stroked and sucked in much the same way he’d done with her mouth, causing a new multitude of sensations to spiral inside of her.
He paused only a moment to look up at her.
“Surrender, Cecily.” He said. Giving her a lazy, sensual smile, “And prepare to die.”


A little about the music in the trailer…

The song for the trailer was written by myself and my sister, Marcie Stanley. Marcie’s beautiful voice is featured while she plays the piano… Due to illness, Marcie doesn’t perform much anymore so it was very special for me to be able to use the song that we wrote together, over twenty years ago.
The Song is titled “Disposable Relationship.” I have a few tweeks for the lyrics to fit Stephen and Cecily’s situation. Next time Marcie is up to recording I’ll change them to this:
For you, I would have done anything.
For you, can NOT have my soul.
For once you looked at me with empty eyes, the consequences… began to roll…
You’re a disposable relationship, damn the ton I’ll see your body gone. I’m throwing away a piece of my heart with you.
with the ash and the chamber pots of my life… you’re going down and I won’t cry… anymore…

Married to the same man for over 25 years, Annabelle Anders is mother to three children and two Miniature Wiener dogs. After owning a business and experiencing considerable success, she and her husband got caught in the financial crisis and lost everything; their business, their home, even their car.

At this point, she put her B.A. in Poly Sci to use and took work as a waitress and bartender.

Unwilling to give up on a professional life, she simultaneously went back to college and obtained a degree in Energy Management.

And then the energy market dropped off.

And then her dog died.

We can only be grateful for this series of unfortunate events, for, with nothing to lose and completely demoralized, she sat down and began to write the romance novels which had until then, existed only in her imagination.

She is happy to have found her place in life.

Finally.

I write under the name ANNABELLE ANDERS and my first book, Hell Hath No Fury released on 7-7-17. I love the date!

Anyway, my novel is an edgy Regency Romance. I say ‘ edgy’, because it’s a little off the beaten path. Whereas most heroines in Regency Romances begin the story NEEDING a husband, my character, Cecily, needs to get rid of one. The man she married (an earl) turned out to be a complete and utter toad (not literally! LOL)

 

My QUESTION FOR THIS GIVEAWAY is: Does it bother you that the hero is not the man she is married to in the beginning? E-mail your comment to andersannabelle@gmail.com along with your address and I’ll send you a Hell Hath No Fury Tasseled Bookmark. (First 20 Respondents) Please include the name of the group or blog you are responding from 🙂

I look forward to discovering your thoughts on this concept!

No Review, but an Update!

I’ve been super busy this week as my two posts (release day for two books!) yesterday showed. So I didn’t have time to read a book for review today because since I was working on things behind the scenes for different people. Since there is no review I thought I would do an update post.

Friday is a blog tour that I am super excited about! It is for Hell Hath No Fury by Annabelle Anders. She is apart of a writing group I’m in on Facebook and this is her first book and I’m thrilled to read it and be apart of the tour.

Tomorrow is the cover reveal for Christina McKnight’s Adeline and I can’t wait for it either.

A SPY NEVER REALLY RETIRES…
Long ago, Marcus Gray, the Marquess of Haversham, left the Home Office with a blackened reputation and a determination to never look back. He skirted the edges of London society, caring for little other than himself, until he crossed paths with Caroline Staveley. When Marc discovers the recently widowed Caroline has returned to London and her late husband’s actions have placed her in danger, he is quickly lured into the once familiar game of cat and mouse he thought he’d escaped.

…NOT WHEN THE LADY HE LOVES IS IN DANGER
Caroline, Viscountess Staveley, is struggling to raise her children and find her place in the world now that her steady and reliable husband is gone. The last thing she needs is another complication, and that is exactly what the notorious skirt-chasing Haversham is—a complicated, unapologetic rake that tempts her like no one ever has. As she starts to unravel his secrets, however, she begins to wonder who he really is and exactly how many secrets he’s keeping.

My Review

*I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.

I never knew it was possible for a book to make you blush or make your eyes go wide until this one! I love a story with spies and this one is at the top of my list. There is a perfect mix of romance and suspense that goes perfectly together. There are a couple of twists that I didn’t see coming especially with the one lord that I never guessed at. I loved how they could be at each other’s throats, but that spark was still there waiting to burst. They are a couple that is totally comfortable with each other from the start and with the kids.

Caroline is a woman that knows her mind. She doesn’t fall at any man’s feet and knows what she wants to do. I loved her from the start because she didn’t hold anything back and was determined to find out everything. When she was worked up look out because she let you know how she felt.

Marc can charm anyone in many ways. He was not one to be embarrassed by anything or to lie. I loved him as soon as he found out she was in danger because it was very clear that he would protect her and her family no matter what. He can win you over with the way he is with kids.

Kids and pets are two of my favorite things and Ava has a way of including both perfectly. There is a scene with a bathtub that explains my first comment ;).

About the Book

Joanna Stopay isn’t in Morgan’s Crossing to visit her godmother, as everyone thinks, she’s in town to find the man who killed her brother. Her plan for justice is working perfectly, until a smiling fool of a farmer’s son ruins her chances of nabbing the bandit who stole everything from her.
Timothy Hanlon is excited about his first adventure away from his family in Dry Bayou, Texas. He’s come to Morgan’s Crossing, Montana, to earn his fortune, but one nearly fatal encounter in a dark alley ties him to a very unlikely creature: a woman in trousers. JoJo is as feisty as she is beautiful, and her dangerous plan to find her brother’s killer can only spell trouble…so why can’t Tim stop himself from helping her?
JoJo doesn’t have time to fall for Tim’s charm, not if she wants to make Dalton Hess pay for his crimes. Tim Hanlon is too smart and much too distracting, but when these two get caught in a trap, JoJo must learn to lean on him to survive.
When these two young adventurers find what they’ve been searching for, will it be love or vengeance?

The Haunting of Castle Keyvnor, Book #4
Greetings,
In regards to the Matter of the un-entailed Estate of the late-Jonathan Hambly, 10th Earl of Banfield, be advised that your attendance is urgently required at the reading of his lordship’s Last Will & Testament, to take place on November 1st of this year at Castle Keyvnor in Bocka Morrow, Cornwall.
Regards,
Mr. Timothy Hunt, Esq.

When the late-Earl of Banfield’s distant relations descend upon Bocka Morrow, they’ll find gypsies, witches, pixies, smugglers, and one very haunted castle. And if they’re lucky, they might just fall in love while they’re there.

SPELLBOUND, The Haunting of Castle Keyvnor includes:

Claire Delacroix’s Something Wicked This Way Comes
Seven years ago, Sophia Brisbane lost everything—her father, her brother, her family fortune—but worse, was rejected by the man she loved. She’s determined not to yearn for the past and its pleasures—until she encounters Lucien de Roye again. Although he knew Sophia could never be his own, Lucien vowed to retrieve her squandered inheritance—even wagering his very soul to a demon. When Sophia learns what he has done, no force on heaven or earth will convince her to let him pay the demon’s due, no matter what the cost to herself.

Jane Charles’s Her Gypsy Lord
Lady Charlotte Beck craves just one little adventure, which is nearly impossible as her older brothers are the most diligent of chaperones. However, when her family is summoned to Castle Keyvnor for the reading of her great-uncle’s will, Charlotte can hardly contain her excitement. Ghosts, magic and gypsies seem to be the ingredients to the adventure she’s been searching for. However when she meets Adam Vail in the nearby gypsy camp, it may be another adventure all together that calls to her soul…if she can survive Castle Keyvnor and one very murderous ghost.

Claudia Dain’s Lady Ghost and Lord Death: A Love Story
Hal Mort, Viscount Blackwater, visits Keyvnor Castle in the company of friends and atop his new stallion. How was he to know that ghosts awaited him? Hal does not believe in ghosts. Unfortunately for Hal, the ghosts take an interest in him. One ghost wants to see him married to the lovely Lady Morgan. Another ghost is just as determined to see him slip the noose. As the ghosts work their supernatural magic, Hal can’t determine if the intense attraction he feels for Morgan is coming from him or from them. And after a few magical kisses, he’s not sure he cares.

The Haunting of Castle Keyvnor includes twelve Regency romance novellas. Don’t miss the anthologies Vexed, Bedeviled, and Mystified.

My Reviews

Claire Delacroix’s Something Wicked This Way Comes 

My Rating: ❤❤❤1/2

Spice Level: 💋💋

This one is very different. I wasn’t really into the selling his soul thing, but it made sense as it went on. I loved how they ran into each other again and both were shocked to see each other. I did love the ending and how everything wrapped up perfectly with one person getting what they deserved.

Sophia has been doing what she must to keep going and be hidden. I liked her because she spoke her mind and was quick to make a plan. Her backstory will make you understand her a lot.

Lucien’s heart was in the right place when he made that wager. I was afraid that it really changed into a different person, but the real him kept coming through. I did like that he had planned everything out.

Jane Charles’s Her Gypsy Lord

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋💋💋

Love the details in this one! The ghost in this one is one of the most terrifying out of all of them. I loved how his grandmother’s was in everything and working her own magic. Her brothers can make you laugh with how protective they are and how they act about things. I loved the wedding and the stuff with his grandfather.

Charlotte definitely loves adventure and wants proof before she will believe. I loved how determined she was when she wanted to do something and that she followed her heart. She was good at shocking her brothers.

Adam is one of a kind because he is in between two very different worlds with his family. I loved him from the start because of how he doesn’t look down on anyone. He is the perfect match for her.

Claudia Dain’s Lady Ghost and Lord Death: A Love Story

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋1/2

I loved how different this one was because the ghosts were a big part of the story. They instantly had something between them and just needed a bit of help. There are two stories going on that affect each other and it plays out perfectly for everyone. The ending was amazing and I didn’t want it to end.

Morgan is a girl that does not believe in anything that she has been told about the castle. I loved her personality and that she wasn’t fazed by everything in the castle even though it affected her. She did jump to a conclusion at one point but realized she shouldn’t have.

Hal didn’t know what the ghost had in store for him. I loved that he was more open than he thought and how much he cared about his horse and dog. He was nothing like his nickname, but it could creep you out at first.

Reading Habits and Readabits Tag!

Add heading

This week for Random Friday I have two book tags thanks to a post from Jessie at Nerdy Book Life! You can read her answers by clicking the link.

stencil.blog-post-feature (6)

Reading Habits Tag!

#1 Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

I read in my in bed. I turn on the tv for background noise and snuggle in with Abigail who gets belly rubs and paw rubs the whole time.

#2 Bookmark or a random piece of paper? 

Bookmark! I have tons of them all over the house from swag packs and one nice fabric one that I love to use. I’ve never used random bits of paper because they slide out and get lost.

#3 Can you stop reading anytime you want or do you have to stop at a certain page, chapter, part, etc.? 

If I have to stop and can’t finish in one sitting I try to stop half way through the book. I can’t stop during exciting parts and will keep reading until I’m past the parts that I can’t wait to finish.

#4 Do you eat or drink while reading? 

I never eat while reading. I will sometimes drink while reading, but I put my book aside to be safe. I don’t want anything on my books or phone if I’m reading on my phone.

#5 Can you read while listening to music/watching TV?

Yes! I can’t have silence when reading because every little noise catches my attention then. Can’t have people in the room though.

#6 One book at a time, or several at once?

One at a time. They would get mixed up in my head when writing reviews. I may start one and take a break from it to read another like I did with book five of the Outlander series (haven’t finished yet), but can’t go back and forth.

#7 Reading at home or everywhere? 

I can read everywhere if there are no distractions. My reading apps are on my phone and with me everywhere.

#8 Reading out loud or silently in your head?

Silently in my head. I just react out loud to what I read at times.

#9 Do you read ahead or skip pages?

Never! I don’t want to miss anything.

#10  Breaking the spine or keeping it new? 

I try to keep it pretty, but the spine always gets broken. I have small hands and hold the book can be hard at times.

#11 Do you write in books? 

Never! I’m pretty good at remembering stuff. If it’s an ebook I just highlight it.

Readabits Tag!

#1 When do you find yourself reading? Morning, Afternoon, Evening, whenever you can, or all the time. 

Evening! 99% of the time I read at night. I rarely read during the day because I have stuff to do.

#2 What is your best setting to read in?

In a nice cool bed with a snoring dog by me.

#3 What do you do first watch or read? 

So far I’ve watched first because I didn’t know about the book until after seeing the movie or show.

#4 What form do you prefer? Audiobook, e-book, or physical book.

It’s a toss up between ebooks and physical books. I love the smell and feel of physical books, but ebooks take up less space. I never have time for audiobooks because family is usually around and I don’t want to put headphones on.

#5 Do you have a unique reading habit? 

I don’t think so. Maybe that I can read with the mindset of the time period the book is set sometimes to understand things.

#6 Do book series have to match? 

Nope. It doesn’t really matter to me.

Are you my habit twin or do you have interesting ones? Comment below.

AN OUTRAGEOUS PROPOSITION
Elizabeth Spencer needs a man. Preferably one who won’t be too picky about the morality of her proposition, or his reputation. Lord Constantine Alexander can’t afford another trip to debtors’ prison, which makes him the perfect candidate. She doesn’t expect him to have a heart of gold, or to hold up his end of the bargain—particularly when his high-in-the-instep family gets involved. Nor does she expect to find him irresistible, because while she needs a man, she doesn’t particularly want one.

A WICKED BARGAIN
When a beautiful courtesan offers to satisfy his creditors, Con leaps at the opportunity. Never mind his mother and brothers are suspicious of his newfound fortune—being with Elizabeth is intoxicating enough to wipe any thought of scruples away. He soon realizes it’s not just his future he’s been gambling, but his future family. How can he convince London’s premier courtesan he’s more than a callow rake?

My Review

*I was provided a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.

I loved that this one picks up from the first book. The whole time I was wondering when someone was going to pop up and ruin their plans. I loved that they both didn’t want to marry, but kept being thrown together by everything and everyone. I did not expect her family to be the way they were or his family to be the opposite in ways. I got teary eyed in the end because of how everything happened and worked out.

Elizabeth has changed so much since becoming a mother and will do anything to keep her baby with her. I love how she doesn’t know what to do when Con doesn’t want money for helping more. She learned to open her heart again.

Con does whatever he can to help his family especially his one brother. He kind of grows up throughout the story and learns that he can’t fix everything and to love. I loved him because he would help anyone in need.

This one shows how hard it could be for women with children because the law wasn’t on their side.

Synopsis:

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?

*I received a copy from the author via NetGalley.

The perfect ending to a mystery! I loved it from the start and how everything kept me waiting to know how it would end. Molly adds a whole lot to the story with her interesting ways. The added mystery of the book was amazing and I loved how it brought everything together in the end. I did not see it coming when it was revealed who the murder I had my suspicions on the person, but wasn’t sure and thought something else.

Ophelia is my favorite out of the girls. She decided to go on her own adventure instead of following her friends around. I loved how she was with everyone especially Molly and that she wasn’t going to give up.

Colin is on a mission to end his family war and make his grandmother happy. The way he is with his grandmother will melt your heart and make you love him. I loved him right away and in the end when he was talking with his father.

Banished from civilization to the Wyoming Territory, U.S. Marshal Harrison Taylor holds a deed to half the Lazy L. He isn’t sure why his beautiful new partner, Rachel Leonard, doesn’t trust him. He has to convince her he is nothing like the man who abused her and must earn her trust before the escalating attacks at the Lazy L turn deadly.
For six years, Rachel has worked to repair a shattered life. Caring for her son and invalid father leaves little time to keep the Lazy L profitable. She doesn’t want a business partner simply because her father gambled away half of her beloved ranch and most certainly doesn’t desire a husband. Unfortunately, she’s stuck with the former and can’t trust Harrison as the latter.
Unless she can learn to trust Harrison, everything and everyone Rachel loves will be lost.

My Review

* I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.

I could not stop thinking about this book after reading it! It is such a powerful story with raw emotion and attention to detail. There is so much going in this book to keep you glued to it with the suspense of the attacks and threats to the ranch, their story, and the past coming back to haunt them. I loved everything from the start when they met and how they fit with each other. At one point I thought someone else was behind everything but was wrong. Her father was one that I wasn’t really liking until the whole story was out about the mine then I cheered. When I got to the end I didn’t want it to be over.

Rachel was a very strong woman. She overcame a horrible thing and kept going for her son and the ranch no matter what people said about her. I loved how she had a journey of getting to the point of trusting again and realizing she was not to blame. She was a fighter.

Harrison was the most honorable man. He did not even begin to judge and made it his mission to help her trust again and protect her. I loved him from the start because he didn’t try to take over and was very understanding. He also took his job as marshal serious.

This book does something rare and handles the subject of sexual assault in a way no other book has and I applaud the author for that.
