Fairy Food

Continue the journey of the Brides of Blessings with Mimi Milan’s Dueling the Desperado. Another strong woman is trying to find her own way and love is the last thing on her mind. If you’ve read The Blessed Bride, Blessed Beyond Measure, and Hell-Bent on Blessings then you will love this one and want to continue the series.

About the Book:

“This place is too dangerous for a face like yours.”
“I feel as if I’ve heard those words before.”

It’s been several years since Araceli Arroyo left behind the burning ruins of her family’s hacienda in New Mexico for a new start in California. Despite the time that’s passed and all the loss she’s suffered, the painful memory of war is like fresh paint on a blank canvas. Perhaps that’s why the prints she creates always hold a touch of sadness. However, she’s determined to produce something new – a masterpiece that will inspire the folks in the growing town of Blessings. Could the new hire at her father’s sawmill help her do that… or will the secrets he carries destroy them both?

From Texas to New Mexico, problems stick to Miguel Santiago like stink on old fish. Hoping to shed his old life, he’s thankful for a friend’s invitation to start anew in a place where he can be anyone – literally. Operating under the alias of Michael St. James, his fair looks and country twang allow him to pass as any other American cowboy in search of California’s promise of golden opportunities. Could the family he’s always wanted also be part of the prospect… or will the woman of his dreams discard him like her dried jars of paint when his past is revealed?

A story of desire and deception, dismay and deliverance, hearts burn as bright as the summer sun setting on the golden California coastline in this classic western.

Not too long ago you saw my review for The Blessed Bride by Lynn Winchester and since I am loving this series and plan to read them all so I decided to feature it here. The first five are available to buy and pre-order right now.

This is series that I feel will be perfect for all readers and ages. They are sweet books that reflect each authors style and offer a wide range of characters, but all have one thing in common. They all have strong women that are trying to make it on their own. If you have been following me for awhile you know I love strong women in the books I read. These books also have an awesome matchmaker who loves his wife to the moon and back that loves to bring people together. These are all set during the gold rush which is something I love and know many of you will. Plus every single cover is gorgeous and makes you want to pick them up.

Author: Lynn Winchester

Release Date: January 3, 2018

About the Book: Leaving Ireland for America, Patience “Pati” O’Connor has followed the trail of her heartbroken father west, to the Sierra Nevada Mountains. With no money and a missing father, Pati has no choice but to settle down in a small, gold mining town of Blessings, California. Maybe the rough and tumble place could use a skilled seamstress…

Pete Jones has spent a lifetime fighting. Wounded in battle during the Mexican War, Pete is left with shaking hands, nightmares, and a sour disposition—but his new job protecting gold claims in Blessings just might be what he needs to kick the anguish of his past.

When Pati’s new business is robbed, she seeks help from the ornery yet honorable Pete, who doesn’t seem too keen on sticking his nose into her business. But Pete can’t seem to say no to the vibrant, fiery, oh so beautiful lass, which may spell trouble for his plans to stay lonely and single.

As the town begins to grow around them, and as trouble starts to slither in, Pati and Pete are desperate to find a love more valuable than all the gold in the mountain.

But can Pete be a man worthy of Pati’s love, and can Pati convince Pete she is destined to be his blessed bride?

Author: Kari Trumbo

Release Date: January 24, 2018

About the Book: Lenora Farnsworth’s family moves to untamed California, but will it mean the death of her dream to become a lawyer like her father?

Her father hires Victor Abernathy to protect the family. He’s just as foreboding as the land, but she’s drawn to him all the same. In gold-rush territory, she can be free of the restraints of Boston, but can she get past the rumors about his past enough to risk her future?

Victor is a displaced English heir, looking to make quick money panning for gold.

He’s never met a woman he couldn’t match, until Lenora. Whether it’s her rebuff, her beauty, or quick wit, he can’t keep away. He makes a wager with her—it’s his gambler’s nature—but he’s dealt a bad hand when his plans fall through. Lenora is a prize he can’t afford to lose, but when England calls, will he fold, or take his winnings and run?

Author: Heather Blanton

About the Book: YOU KNOW MY STYLE OF WRITING—strong heroines who don’t mess around. They roll up their sleeves and get the job done. I love the stories of women who persevere and overcome, so you can imagine how much I enjoyed writing Hell-Bent on Blessings. It releases on Feb. 14 but you can pre-order TODAY!

Harriet’s worthless husband has snatched the world out from under her feet, and then gone and died on her, to boot. First, though, he left her in deep debt and facing foreclosure on the ranch that she loves almost as much as her own children. Livid, staring at bankruptcy and fighting hopelessness, she grits her teeth and comes up with a plan. Money, gold, and jobs are abundant in the boom town of Blessings, California. She’ll start over there, taking one step at a time to rebuild a life with her children, her financial independence, and her dreams of a new ranch.

God help the man who ever gets in her way again…

Jason Meredith, an old friend, has a few things he’d like to say to Harriet, especially now that she’s a widow. He might have better luck surviving a bear attack, though, than thawing her frozen heart. He’s got his work cut out for him, but Jason’s a patient man. At least, he used to think he was…

The moment spymaster Baron Fulkham meets the stunning Princess Anne of Chanay, he’s positive her royal persona is a ruse and that she’s actually Monique Servais, the mysterious actress he met three years before in Dieppe. But as he pursues his suspicions, he uncovers a plot of attempted assassination and betrayal that could very well destroy his career, expose his own secrets…and ruin the woman he’s rapidly coming to love.

The Secret of Flirting is a sizzling historical romance filled with fast-paced storytelling, an enchanting heroine, and a sexy hero, perfect for fans of Regency romance.

My Review

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

I was hooked from their start and never knew what was going to happen. This is very different from others with the politics have a big part in everything. I loved how they first met and then how they were years later with each other. You could feel the tension between them and I was just waiting for it to explode. When I was finally able to figure out who was behind everything I was shocked. I absolutely loved how it ended because I didn’t expect it at all.

Monique will do almost anything to take care of her grandmother. I loved how strong she was and that she made it clear that she could make her own decisions. When she made up her mind to do something look out because she wouldn’t be stopped without good reason.

Gregory has secrets and things in his past that make him keep his feeling locked away. I loved how much of a gentleman he was and that his mother was a big part of things. He needed a reason open up and let go of things in the past.

Could you ever love the unrepentant rake who won you in a wager?

He didn’t gamble on losing his heart when he won her at the gaming tables.

Pierce, the Earl of Wainthorpe has finally thwarted his worst enemy. Except he can’t revel in his victory after winning his foe’s ward in a winner-takes-all wager. If Pierce refuses to assume Bianca Salisbury’s guardianship, the fiery-haired beauty with a matching temper may very well find herself sold to the highest bidder.

The shameful secret she guards makes it impossible to love a rogue.

Desperate to escape her blackguard cousin, Bianca Salisbury ventures to London to find a husband or employment. Instead, she’s bartered to a notorious rakehell. She either risks being compromised and accepts The Earl of Wainthorpe’s protection, or flees him and her guardian. But without money and a place to go, she fears she’ll face the same tragic fate as her mother.

Caution: This romance features a sexy, irredeemable scoundrel determined to thumb his nose at the haut ton, a saucy country miss unafraid to speak her mind but terrified of even a hint of scandal, a unlikely aristocratic matchmaker, a trio of busybody sisters you’ll adore, and a very pregnant calico that is convinced humans are only around for her convenience.

For a page-turning Historical Romance novel brimming with Regency England’s rakish dukes and rapscallion lords, buy this passionate adventure sprinkled with suspense and humor. You won’t be able to put it down.

My Review

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

This is a page-turner! I was hooked as soon as that wager happened during the card game. I loved how their romance developed because it took time to fully happen. They were the perfect match for each other because they both had something the other needed. I did not expect all of the stuff about her family and it was not what I had thought.

Bianca is a stubborn and will not rely on others to take care of her. I loved how strong she was and that she did so many things herself. At first, she comes off differently, but you quickly love her.

Pierce is set on revenge, but he also has a big heart. I loved him as soon as his sisters set in on him because of how he was with them. He was not exactly as he seemed to the outside world.

THE HEIR TO AN EARLDOM RETURNS…
Major Gabriel Prideaux returns to England to find his claim to the earldom as tenuous as ever, his brother in a lunatic asylum, and his oldest friend guarding the streets at night as the Covent Guard. At every turn, there is another catastrophe just waiting for Gabe, but being home after many years away, he finds that his thoughts keep returning to the one girl he’s always loved, especially when he stumbles upon her in a most surprising place and in an even more surprising attire.
…STILL IN LOVE WITH THE ONE LADY HE CAN NEVER HAVE
Miss Sophia Hampton has always been reckless, but no more so than when she dons a pageboy outfit to sneak into her cousin’s bachelor lodgings to beg for his help with their dictatorial grandfather. However, the last person she ever expected to find upon her arrival was Gabriel Prideaux. How unfortunate that her heart still beats for him even after all these years, especially considering the way he left her and never looked back.

My Review

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

Another amazing read from Ava! I couldn’t put it down until I finished it. I was hooked from the start with his brother and her dressing like a pageboy. I could not figure out why her father was the way he was to him until it was revealed and that was a twist I didn’t see coming at all. I didn’t expect her to do what she did when he was leaving or their wedding that is a favorite of mine. I never saw the twist about his brother’s treasure coming or everything that came from it. This was one I didn’t want to end, but the epilogue is my all time favorite.

Sophia is determined to know what her father isn’t telling her and to help her cousin. I loved her as soon as she talked to her father and how she knew how to get what she wanted. She didn’t hide her feelings and didn’t care what others thought about everything. She is a favorite.

Gabe had been told a shocking secret four years ago and then returns shocked to find his brother dying. I knew I was going to love him because of how much he cared about his brother. He tried so hard to protect everything and everyone, but it was going to destroy him. He is also a favorite of mine.

This is a must read and all time favorite.

Excerpt:

He grabbed the papers, getting an eyeful of his housekeeper. Fresh arousal stiffened his cock. Tiny moisture beads clung to her breasts, shining like diamonds on ample cleavage. Her shift’s white tie dangled over her bodice, begging to be pulled.

If he wasn’t careful, he’d press his mouth to hers and cry defeat.

His hips shifted, sloshing water in the tub. “The thing is what we have is like a game of Fox and Geese. Are you familiar with the board game?”

A sweet laugh erupted. “Fox and Geese? Yes, I’ve seen it. Pray tell, what do you mean?”

Well, I’m the fox, outnumbered and outflanked by you.”

Because of this morning.”

His gaze dipped to her pretty bosom. He was the worst kind of wastrel; everyone expected it of him.

Why not give in?

Sweat trickled down his temple, owing nothing to the hot bath. Miss Turner had to know he’d be putty in her hands if she crooked her finger at him.

I’m not skilled with household matters.” He forced himself to look higher.

Dark lashes fringed her patient, knowing eyes.

He grinned aware he was caught ogling her. “You got the best of me, going on attack at the crack of dawn, no less. Very unsporting of you.”

It was well past dawn,” she corrected. “But do go on. This is quite interesting.”

Her chin rested in her hand. She was close enough he could count the freckles on her nose. Miss Turner was pretty but not in the conventional sense. Her jaw was too square, her eyes too dark, and her stature tall for most men, but her body housed a soul older than her years and he wanted to lose himself in her.

Fighting for clarity, he tapped the folded papers. “I have here something to even things out. A negotiation piece.”

In our game of Fox and Geese.” Her voice dipped with humor. “And here I thought we were all about cleaning up your unsightly cottage.”

A minor detail. Life is about the dance between men and women.”

A vicar’s wisdom, I’m sure.”

Firelight illuminated Miss Turner’s hair, the effect like honeyed threads. Desire shocked his system again, the jolt reaching between his legs. A medieval device could be slowly crushing him for all the sweet torture. He was ten times a fool for conversing with her while in his bath.

His vision glazed over all because messy hair and freckles entranced him. The current circumstances defined purgatory—him naked with a desirable woman he could never, should never touch.

About that negotiation piece.” She nodded at the broadsheet.

He blinked, willing the intense wave between his legs to subside.

I have a prime item, but it will come at a price.”

Miss Turner stilled and her eyes narrowed. “Go on.”

I’ve something inside for you, but I think it’s worth having my chamber pot cleaned all winter.”

What?” She balked. “You want…chamber pots cleaned. Not a service of another kind?”

A marriage offer obligated by duty; an acceptance, compelled by desperation. 

Scarred from a fire, at two-and-twenty, Philomena Pomfrett is resigned to spinsterhood. But to ease her dying brother’s fretting, she reluctantly agrees to attend a London Season to acquire a husband. If she fails, when he dies, with no family and no money, her future is perilous. Betrayed once, Philomena entertains no notions of a love-match.

Newly titled,
Bradford offers marriage, but Philomena rejects his half-hearted proposal, convinced he’d grow to despise her. Then her brother collapses, and she’s faced with marrying a man who deserted her once already.

Caution: This Regency historical romance contains a jaded lord whom the ladies adore, a scarred spinster, willing to sacrifice everything for her dying brother, a feisty, portly cat, and an audacious aunt who say precisely what she thinks.

My Review

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

This is my favorite so far! Many emotions and a few twists I didn’t see coming. It was a whirlwind of events and I loved it. I did not expect the twist of what he thought had happened to them or the stuff about his uncle. I loved that they were drawn together in the dark. His aunt again adds to everything.

Philomena thought no man would ever love her because of her scars. I loved her because of how much she loved her brother and wanted to make him happy. She also spoke her mind at all times.

Bradford was left heartbroken because of his uncle’s lies. I felt for him as he thought about her and then when he saw her. I loved him in the first book and more in this one because it told his story more.

Can a beautiful spinster trust love again? Especially if the same man asks? 

Olivia Kingsley didn’t expect to fall in love and receive a secret marriage proposal two weeks into her first Season. However, one dance with Allen Wimpleton and her fate is sealed. Or so she thinks until her eccentric and ailing father announces he’s moving the family to the Caribbean for a year. Distraught at her leaving, and unaware of her father’s ill health, Allen demands she choose—him or her father.

Heartbroken at Allen’s callousness, but thankful he’s revealed his true nature before she married him, Olivia turns her back on their love. The year becomes three, enough time for her broken heart to heal, and after her father dies, Olivia returns to England. Coming face to face with an embittered Allen, she realizes she never purged him from her heart, and once again the flames of passion ignite. But is it too late for their love?

Caution: This humorous historical Regency romance contains a dashing, pessimistic rogue, a strong-minded heroine with a temperament as fiery as her red hair, an audacious aunt who says precisely what she thinks, and an uppity villainess who gets her comeuppance at last.

My Review

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

This was just the quick little pickup read I needed. I got many laughs with this one from her aunt and brother. I loved how everything happened and played out in the garden. You could tell from the moment they saw each other again that they still loved each other.

Oliva was frightened and overwhelmed by everything. I loved her because she didn’t hide her feelings and was ready to face everyone again. She spoke from her heart.

Allen was left heartbroken when she left. I loved that his heart and body wasn’t going to let him avoid her. He was very understanding once he listened to her.

Widow Meriel Vyse is stunned speechless when someone tries to abduct her on her way to a ball. Fortunately, Quinn Raines, her secret beau, shows up to foil the attack. Unfortunately, as the two of them are struggling with her abductor, Meriel accidentally stabs Quinn with a knife.

Unbeknownst to Meriel, Quinn set up the fake abduction so he could play the hero and win her hand in marriage. But now that his plan has gone disastrously awry, can he convince her that he’s still the man for her?

My Review

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

I normally don’t like this quick of a read, but I loved this! When she stabbed him I knew it was going to be a good read. It’s very fast-paced but has enough about both of them so you understand them and will make you laugh at times. I loved the ending.

Meriel believes she isn’t good enough for him because of her past. I loved that she spoke her mind and when she made up her mind she followed it. I loved her in the end and what she did.

Quinn is worried about why she won’t marry him. I loved how he thought his plan would work until he saw the knife. His past was also one that he worried about. I loved when she told him everything.

A LADY OF LIGHT

Refined, kind, and intelligent, Lady Iris Jordan finds herself the unlikely target of a diabolical kidnapping. Her captors are the notoriously evil Lords of Chaos. When one of the masked-and nude!-Lords spirits her away to his carriage, she shoots him . . . only to find she may have been a trifle hasty.

A DUKE IN DEEPEST DARKNESS

Cynical, scarred, and brooding, Raphael de Chartres, the Duke of Dyemore, has made it his personal mission to infiltrate the Lords of Chaos and destroy them. Rescuing Lady Jordan was never in his plans. But now with the Lords out to kill them both, he has but one choice: marry the lady in order to keep her safe.

CAUGHT IN A WEB OF DANGER . . . AND DESIRE

Much to Raphael’s irritation, Iris insists on being the sort of duchess who involves herself in his life-and bed. Soon he’s drawn both to her quick wit and her fiery passion. But when Iris discovers that Raphael’s past may be even more dangerous than the present, she falters. Is their love strong enough to withstand not only the Lords of Chaos but also Raphael’s own demons?

My Review

*I received a copy from the author via NetGalley

The shocking opening will make sure you don’t put it down. It’s shocking and thrilling at the same time throughout the book. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time afraid of what would happen next and hoping she could help him get rid of his demons. I loved how the passion between them kept building until it exploded. The mystery of the leader of the Lords of Chaos kept me guessing if who I thought it was was right or not. The ending was another shocker and I loved it.

Iris is not as innocent as she seems and wants passion. I loved her right away because she wasn’t going to wilt away and was going to fight if she had to. She was very caring and understanding even willing to give up what she wanted most for him. Her compassion and strength was amazing.

Raphael is on a suicide mission to kill his demons. His personal demons are some of the most horrible and fuel him to take down the Lord of Chaos. I loved him because he would protect her to no end. He needed her more than he knew to fight his demons and find happiness and passion in his life.

There are many things that will shock you in the book so be prepared.
