For years, Lady Chastity Neville has stood in the shadows of her dour older sister. But while bluestocking Prudence might be content to wile away her hours alone with a book, Chastity secretly yearns to shed her wallflower ways. When she finds an old letter indicating her mother may have had a scandalous past, Chastity is drawn to the mystery of the woman she never knew. This Christmastide, she’s determined to uncover the truth—and start a scandal of her own.

Bastian Stanhope, the Earl of Mansfield, has lived his life in accordance to the wishes of others. Caring for his ailing mother is his main responsibility. But when he meets Lady Chastity, he’s drawn to her compassion and adventurous spirit. For the first time, he’s thinking of his own future. ‘Tis the season for merry mischief, so to win Chastity’s heart, he’ll have to be a little bit wicked.

With kisses underneath the mistletoe, Chastity’s scandalous quest might just turn into the love of a lifetime…

My Review

A forgotten letter was all it took to ignite Chastity and pull her from the shadows. These two are very different, but also alike in many ways. Their first meeting set the tone for the story and it does not disappoint. I loved how they brought out the best in each other and some of the wickedness too. It hurt my heart to see her and her sister at odd, but it just makes me more excited for the next story. I laughed at their brother with how he was acting and absolutely loved the ballroom scene.

Chastity is ready to be herself and have some scandalous fun at the same time. She really struggled after finding that note, but without it, she would still be in the shadows. I loved that she was ready to take on anyone and didn’t care what others thought.

Bastian is one of the shyest and quiet lords I’ve seen. He puts everyone else first and doesn’t think he’s worth notice. I loved seeing him go from shy and quiet to ready to fight because of her. He needed her more than he knew.

Fated For The Duke by Christina McKnight

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤ Spice Level:💋

Amazon | Barnes& Noble | Kobo | Google Play | iTunes

Descended from witches burned at the stake, Lady Emilia Noble knows all too well how society persecutes the different. She trusts no one but her own siblings, never daring to reveal to anyone outside the family that she, like her grandmother before her, can read a person’s emotions through the changing colors of their aura. When her brother’s foolhardy boast that he can predict the future entangles him with the unscrupulous Lord Abernathy, Emilia is faced with a new threat: the ruination of the family’s finances and the unmasking of their secret past.

Until Emilia meets Felix Hunter, the Duke of Kintore. For years, Felix has watched as his immoral uncle, Lord Abernathy, has cast shame upon their family through his dishonest machinations. Determined that Abernathy won’t hurt anyone else, he vows to help Emilia resolve her family’s debts. He’s been drawn to her since the moment he met her, and slowly, she begins to trust him too. But when Abernathy threatens to reveal the Noble family’s supernatural gifts, Emilia’s worst nightmare becomes a very real reality.

Can Felix and Emilia’s love triumph over the forces of evil, or are they fated to be perpetually alone? 

When love is mixed with magic, anything can happen.

Fate brought them together with a little help. The moment they met they were drawn to each other and had no idea what was in store for them. I loved that they are a bit opposite in some things, especially in intense situations. I was surprised in the end with how he fixed things and that note has me excited for her siblings.

 
 Emilia always puts her siblings first and will do anything to protect them. I loved how she wasn’t afraid and didn’t back down. She still had much to learn about her gift, but she let fate lead her without knowing it.

Felix has taken care of his uncle for years and nothing seems to shock him anymore. I loved that he always seemed to be calm and able to understand anything thrown at him. He knew what he had to do for himself and her family.

Series: Craven House
Author: Christina McKnight
Genre: Historical Romance, Regency
Release Date: June 26, 2018

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.

The_Lady_Loves_A_Scandal_1800x2700.jpgTitle: The Lady Loves a Scandal
Author: Christina McKnight
Genre: Historical Romance, Regency
Release Date: May 22, 2018

Lady Sybil Anson thought she had it all. Even a match of the heart, despite so many London elite marrying for convenience. But the night before their betrothal was to become official, the love of her life vanished–with a hastily scrawled note and little more. She feared the worst as her heart ached for Gideon, and the scandal sheets simply made matters worse with their preposterous musings on the hows and whys of Viscount Galway’s disappearance. Now, more than a year later, he’s unexpectedly back, and Sybil will have her answers.

Many, many years ago, Gideon Lyndon made a grave mistake. One he’s spent most of his adult life trying to rectify. And despite the progress made, the sacrifices were extensive and damaging. On the verge of repairing one misdeed, he finds himself faced with his greatest challenge yet: winning back the woman he has loved since the moment he met her. But after a year of silence, convincing his headstrong paramour to take him back will not be easy. Especially since he can’t even explain why he left–not if he wants to keep her safe.

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

This is a story of soulmates beating all odds. I was hooked from the start when he disappeared wondering what had happened. I wasn’t sure how it all would play out when he returned and I really liked how that spark was still in full force. When everything came out I was holding my breath afraid of what would happen, but it was perfect.

Sybil is nothing like the other girls and she doesn’t try to hide it. I loved her right away with how she did what she wanted and didn’t hold back anything. She wasn’t going to let him or anyone else control her life.

Gideon had an extremely good reason for leaving when he did and it hurt his heart to do it. I loved his reason for leaving and that he really wanted to tell her, but couldn’t. He knew that she wouldn’t stop until she found out why.

When a bluestocking spinster sets her mind to something…

Lady Patience Lane, daughter of the Earl of Desmond and legendary boxer Ivory Bess, grew up learning to fight, not how to mind her manners. She always expected she’d become a trainer like her mother, until injuries from the ring led to her mother’s untimely death. Now, she’s determined to save other families from the same heartache, by teaching others about the dangers of boxing. Nothing could bring her back to the world she left—until she meets a mysterious stranger who sets her pulse racing.

And a dark, dangerous lord interferes…

Sinclair Chambers, the Earl of St. Seville and known as “Sin” to his cohorts, inherited an insolvent estate. He has to make money, and fast, or his tenants will starve. The prize purses from the bareknuckle mills will go a long way to solving his problems, if he can win them. To be a success in the ring, he needs the best trainer, and Patience Lane is the best there is—all he has to do is convince her that he’ll only fight once.

They just might find their happily ever after in each other’s arms.

The more time Sin and Patience spend together, the closer they become. Soon, Sin’s thoughts are less about winning in the ring, and more about winning Patience’s heart. But can a relationship born out of wicked deception stand the test of time?

My Review

How can you not love a woman training a man to fight! Their first meeting was very unique and I knew they were going to be very different in how they did things. I loved that they both were so set on their reasons, but also wanted to help and not hurt each other. Her family just added to everything from her father helping her with her cause to her brothers helping and having their own requirements for things. The ending and proposal was perfect.

Patience’s reason for her cause is heartbreaking, but Sin sparked something in her. She had me from the start with how set she was on things. Then as she realized what her actions had done broke my heart and made we love her more.

Sin stands out from all the other men in many ways. He was determined to save his home and could see through many people. I loved that he was so open to her and the reason behind his name is so sweet.

Lady Aloria has experienced firsthand what balls, betrothals, and the ensuing betrayals can do to a woman. To heal her heart, Aloria’s aim is to simply survive her final grand ball before her twenty-fourth birthday, and hope that her parents finally come to terms with her spinsterhood and allow her to retire to the country in peace.

Unfortunately, Marcus Adair, the Duke of Wolfeton, has other plans for her future. In town to secure a bride, he has set his sights on Aloria, and no other woman will do. But after a chance meeting in a darkened hallway, Marcus realizes he not only needs Aloria in his life; he desires her above all others.

Can Lady Aloria forget her scandalous past to build a future with the Duke of Wolfeton?

My Review

I loved this one and couldn’t put it down. Sparks were flying with their first meeting and I was cheering him on throughout the story. Her parents are very different from most and truly want to see her safe and happy after everything that has happened. I loved that the person trying to put them together was not someone you would expect. Things worked out perfectly in the end.

Aloria is one of those heroines that many can connect with on many levels. She has put up with so much throughout her life for so many different people. I loved that she slowly came out of her shell and safe place to find happiness.

Marcus is someone that you will love instantly. He came for one reason, but quickly changed his mind and wanted to prove himself. I loved that he was ready to battle anyone that put her down and that he found his way.

Series: Craven House

Author: Christina McKnight

Genre: Historical Romance, Regency

Release Date: January 4, 2018

THERE’S A FINE LINE BETWEEN LOVE AND HATE.

Despite being thrown from her home and stripped of her place in society at a young age, Madame Marce Davenport is proud of what she’s accomplished with her family and the notoriously scandalous Craven House. Except it’s all built on a lie. When an arrogant duke strode into her home years ago, offering her a way to keep the brothel open, she agreed to his game of deception. But now that her siblings have found their happiness, Marce can finally live the life she’s always wanted: one that embraces the truth. And that means severing ties with the man who has claimed too many of her days—both in reality, and fantasy.

Rowan Delconti, the Duke of Harwich, has been angry for so long: at his father, at the woman who broke apart his parents’ marriage, and at the children who won is father’s love. He’s determined his mother won’t be unhappy again—even if it means pretending to be married to Marce, so that his mother will think he’s found love in his life. But the beautiful madame fuels his fire like no other, and the charade starts to feel all too real.

When Marce and Rowan’s secrets finally come to light, their passion may not be enough to staunch the hurt of the past. Can two people who were so wrong for each other, realize they’ve been right all along?

Spice Level: 💋💋

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

The women in this family are not to be messed with! As soon as he walked into the house and offered her that deal I was glued because it is a shocking and different deal. This is another journey of needing to let go of the past and understand things. When they started fighting I thought it was going to be a throw down because of how built up the feelings were. Everyone needs a friend like Tobias in their life and a mother like Rowan’s. The ending was exactly what I was hoping for!

Marce will not let anyone dictate to life anymore and she had a plan. I loved her right away because she wasn’t afraid to voice her opinion and tell him the truth. But also wasn’t going to waste her breath with him at times. She does amazing work in London that was very much needed.

Rowan does everything to keep his mother happy. It was clear from the start of much he loved his mother but hated his father. You have to get to know him and understand him before you like him. Once he let go of everything he was amazing.

My Reviews

Taming a Christmas Wallflower by Tammy Andresen

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

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

I loved that this started with a bet and quickly turned to love! It’s a quick read, but everything moves along smoothly and doesn’t seem rushed. They were perfectly matched for each other and it was love at first sight.

Amelia is an extremely smart bluestocking and wallflower. I loved her right away because she didn’t hide the fact that she was so smart and she thought about stuff first. She followed her heart.

Will is quick to realize there is more to her than he thought. I also loved him right away because he understood her and admired her for being her. He didn’t hide his feelings at all from anyone.

I really loved this one! Fate brought them together and they were going to follow their hearts. I loved how they were instantly drawn to each other and understood each other perfectly. I got worried at the ball, but it was perfect and the ending was great.

Lily is not a woman that will stand by and get used to anything her fiance does. I loved her because she was not going to be told what to do and that she took control of her life. She was amazing.

Joshua has a reputation when it comes to women, but his heart wants something else now. I loved him right away because his was still a gentleman and didn’t hide his thoughts and feelings.

The Duke and I by Heather Boyd

Different from most romances, but an amazing story. I loved that they were a more mature couple so there was a different vibe from both of them. I had fun trying to figure out who was putting up the mistletoe. His daughters were totally different from each other in how they expected him to be. The proposal scene is one of my favorites.

Gillian has no plans to ever be married again and doesn’t sense whats between her and the Duke. I loved her because she wasn’t one to be shocked by things and she went into things not expecting more. She was amazing at speaking her mind to everyone.

Nicholas avoided women at all cost except for Gillian and didn’t realize why he at first. I loved him because he quickly realized what was between them and didn’t care what he children or people thought. He was an amazing father no matter what his kids said or did.

I wish this one was longer because I wanted to know more about them. I loved that there had always been a connection between them. This was a couple that as soon there was nothing to stop them their passions exploded. I really wanted to know more about his family curse and her family.

Odessa was stubborn, always had a plan, and would fight for what she loved. I loved her right away because she decided to take matters into her own hands and make him talk. She wasn’t going to hide away.

Gavin had loved her for years, but his family curse keeps him away from her. When you hear about what happened with his mother you understand him more. I loved him because he couldn’t hide from her.

This one will hook you from the start because it shocking what happens to her. I loved how different this one was with him helping her and his family accepting her the way they did. The ending sealed it for me!

Julia was strong and was not going to stay in that brothel. I loved her right away when she ran and that learned everything so fast. She never imagined how her life would change.

Charles is nothing like you would expect a Duke to be. I loved that he was so open and friendly right away. I also loved how he and his sister were with each other and what he decided to do right after meeting Julia.

This one is a bit longer and will keep you on the edge of your seat at times. I loved that I couldn’t figure out exactly how things would work out. I did not see the twist of who had been helping keep them apart or that her fiance would show up when he did. I didn’t like her parents until the end. The ending was great.

Penelope was torn between her parent’s wishes and the man she loves. I loved how it was also a journey of her getting the courage to follow her heart and do what she wanted. I cheered when she really thought about everything and made her choice.

Rollo meant it when he made that promise years ago. I loved him right away because he wasn’t going to let his family’s past stand in his way. He never gave up on love beating all and was determined to prove it to her.

An emotional rollercoaster with this one. My heart ached for both of them because they loved each other, but neither knew it and they kept saying the wrong things. I loved everything in this one from the tension leaping off the pages to the title really fitting the story. I loved that they had known each other for years.

Mellie really had her life torn apart in many ways. I loved her right away because of how she handled everything that happened and that she was not going to back down. My heart ached for her when she tried to talk to him and it came out wrong.

Brigham saved Mellie and her mother only to spend all his time away. I loved him right away because it was clear he loved her and wanted her, but was afraid. He made my heart ache when he told her everything.

Another one that had me on the edge of my seat! They were perfectly matched from the start and didn’t know it. I loved that as soon as he heard who she needed to keep away that he jumped to help. The second library scene had me holding my breath because Milburn was terrifying. I loved her parents because they added a laugh to everything.

Perdita is not afraid of anything and doesn’t back down. I loved her as soon as she knocked on his door and even more when she told Milburn he didn’t scare her. She is a favorite heroine of mine.

Vaughn doesn’t think he can love and his nickname really doesn’t fit once you know him. I loved him once he said what he wanted in exchange for helping her because it showed the real him. Add him to the book boyfriend list.

 

This whole collection is amazing!
