The love of Trenton Quinn’s life disappeared suddenly. He tried to move on with his life but couldn’t forget about her. When evidence arises suggesting she fell through a time hole he decides to figure out how to follow her to the past and bring her home.

Genevieve Byrne fell off a cliff landing in Regency England and total chaos ensued. Immediately upon her arrival she was kidnapped and held hostage by French spies. Only a miracle would see her through it and she prayed that somehow the love of her life would rescue her. But he never came and she had to find a way to save herself.

After careful research Trenton finds a way to travel through time, but will he be too late to save the woman he loves?

My Review

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

I was sucked in from the moment she went to the cliff. I loved how many people were involved in trying to find her and how open they were to time travel. When he finally found the way to save her I was not expecting where they landed or the reactions. Everything happened so quickly and I was worried they wouldn’t make it back.

Genevieve thought he no longer loved her or didn’t love her enough when she went to that cliff. She wanted him to be hurt when he found her, but her heart wouldn’t let her do it.

Trenton never really gave up hope on finding her. He had a secret that caused the problems with them and it was one I didn’t expect. I loved that he was not going to give up and didn’t listen to anything she said.

Stolen by My Knave by Dawn Brower

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋💋1/2

I normally don’t like books that involve time travel, but the prologue in this one hooked me and I liked it a lot. I really liked the whole story and the bits of back story to make everything more understandable. This has a fairytale romance feel which I’m always up for. I loved the way they interacted with each other and the little twists. I wished it was longer because I kept wanting to read more.

Elizabeth is definitely my kind of heroine. She is bold and speaks her mind no matter what. I loved her when she was trying not to roll her eyes and that she didn’t back down from what she wanted.

Jack is also bold and speaks his mind. I loved him when he told his tale and realized connections between them. He knew what he wanted and was quick to make it happen without anyone knowing what he was doing.

This one has a Cinderella feel and I love it! I was shocked from the beginning when her cousin arrived because of how he talked to her and then tricked her. One of my favorite parts was their meeting because I did not see it coming. I wanted to jump up and down at the ending.

Elianna’s life was torn apart when her father died and her cousin moved in, but she never gave up on one day getting her life back. I love the bit of rebellion in her when she made up her mind to do something. She was always was nice even when she was treated horribly.

Garrett see’s people for what they are and he doesn’t really hide his feelings. I loved that from the start he was determined to find the truth and set out to do it. He definitely was not one to be messed with and would make sure you paid for it. I wanted to know more about his past.

Rose is a woman that would want on my side because she was not afraid to fight.

The Ugly Duckling Debutante by Meara Platt

Spice Level: 💋

This one matches it’s title perfectly. I loved how this one played out and that it also included ducklings to add to the story. Their first meeting was different and perfect because they probably wouldn’t have met any other way. There is a bit of a twist in the end and I wasn’t expecting what was happening in his family.

Gennalyn broke my heart. Her life had been turned upside down, her relatives treated her horribly, and everyone called her names and paid no attention to her. She needed a friend to help her before she wasted away. I loved that she talked to animals and was so excited to see her blossom.

Roarke seems perfect but he has his own problems. I loved how he was with his brothers and what he did with his father to help his brother. He saw the real Gennalyn when no one else did and would not give up on her no matter what.

The youngest girl is one I saw hope for in the end.

A Diamond for a Duke by Collette Cameron

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋💋

Another great fairytale feeling book! I love when wallflowers find love with someone that no one thinks they would. It was clear from the moment they saw each other that they were going to be together. I loved Aunt Teo and Lady Lockhart because they were definitely not women to be messed with.

Jemmah has let her mother and sister walk all over, but she finally had enough. I loved her from the start and when she stood up to her mother. She never held anything against anyone and didn’t look down on herself.

Jules has decided to put off marriage until he felt like he had after his past. You have to love him because he makes it quite clear what he wants and that he will do whatever it takes to marry who he loves.

There are many characters that made me want to know more about them.

His Elusive Nightingale by Ari Thatcher

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋💋💋

This one is different and I love it. I absolutely love the title and the whole mystery of where did the singer go and why did she leave. I loved that it started out has a challenge for him and a way to make money for her but quickly turned into more. I was not expecting the bit of a twist with the duke and the singer because I couldn’t decide on why he wanted to there so badly.

Kitty is a maid that has her own secrets and reasons to protect her boss. I really liked her from the start and how she got along with people. I loved how she wasn’t really shy and made sure she didn’t forget about her family.

Malcolm Doesn’t care about the money he just likes the challenge of finding the singer. I loved how he tended to be very straight forward when talking and didn’t think about how people would react.

The Fairy Palace by Sue London

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋

I was glued to this one. This one is really like a fairytale from the start when he takes her to London the way he does because of the thrill of it. It’s a bit like a whirlwind with the twist that they have known each other for years. I loved how they just got each other and knew what the other needed. His father was a bit surprise and I wasn’t certain what he would do until the end.

Melanie is such a sweet girl even though she is a tiny bit bold. I liked her a lot especially when she was at the ball having fun because she was like a little girl. She is one you will love right away.

Oscar is a bit wild, but also a poet and followed his heart at the drop of a hat. I liked him from the start because I didn’t know for sure what he would do at any time. He is one that is different and a nice change from many.

Hunting for A Lady’s Heart by Tammy Andresen

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋💋💋

This one is full of magic and a battle. Their meeting was definitely a shocking one and meant to happen for a good reason. I loved the whole family being involved and that they didn’t bat an eye at anything. I wasn’t sure how it would end and loved the ending.

Eirwen is a very sweet and would never hurt someone even though she’s been hurt multiple times. I loved her and that she was battling not just her stepmother, but her fears. She is powerful in many ways.

Will is someone that will do anything to protect those he loves. He is very understanding of things and listens to everything and everyone around him. I loved him from the start and how he was with his family.

Spinsterhood has never looked so good, but unfortunately even that won’t save Lady Juliette Brooks. Her father’s arranged a betrothal for her to a brute of a man. She has one choice left—force the Duke of Kissinger to honor a long ago promise to save her.

Grayson Abbot, the Duke of Kissinger, does not want to marry Lady Juliette. He doesn’t want to marry anyone. But he did make her a promise, and he doesn’t go back on his word… So he reluctantly agrees to run away with her.

They set off on an adventure during the Christmastide season. As they race to Scotland they experience delays, cold weather, and a friendship they’d almost forgotten about. Will Juliette finally find out what it’s like to be kissed, and in return, win the duke’s heart?

My Review

This one is different from the others in the series and I absolutely loved it! What else is a lady to do when her father is set to marry her off to a horrible man, but seek out her childhood friend that now has a certain reputation? They were childhood friends that haven’t spoken in fifteen years, but he made a promise then and will keep it. I loved that they headed for Greta Green and the ceremony when the were married because of the details.

Juliette may seem like a quite girl that does what her father says, but it’s more of an act and she proves them wrong as soon as she runs away. I loved how she never backed down and knew Grayson better than himself. She is an amazing girl and one of my favorite heroines.

Grayson has done the opposite of what his father wanted since he sent him away to school, but deep down there is still a bit of the boy Juliette loved. I loved how he slowly put away his rogue persona. He is one of my favorite heroes.

I wish it was longer because I loved it so much. I hope her stepmother wasn’t so mean to have known how bad a man she pushed her to marry was. I was glad her father realized what could have happened to his daughter.
