Anything can happen on Twelfth Night…

When widowed countess Minerva, Lady Harlow, discovers a devastating secret about her late husband just before Christmas, she turns to trusted friend, Sir Tristan King, for support. However, when a long-denied desire flares to life—and Minerva and Tristan agree to a Twelfth Night tryst—Tristan worries a secret of his own will ruin a treasured friendship. But then again, perhaps this shared night of wicked, unbridled passion will spark an everlasting love…

My Review

Have your fan ready with this one. That spark had been hidden deep in both of them until a conversation and kiss under the mistletoe ignited it. They were made for each other and didn’t know it. They had many interesting lessons that made their feelings strong and known. I loved how they didn’t play games and understood each other. I wasn’t expecting him to pop up during the show, but that just brought them together.

Minerva was sparked by finding out her husband’s secret to discover what she had been missing in the bedroom. She never expected some of the things she saw or that she would also enjoy them. I loved the fire in her and how she didn’t run and hide from anything.

Tristan had admired her from afar for years and he couldn’t hold back any longer. He had no problems teaching her what she wished to learn. I liked that he liked to take control and command, but not in a way that would be a turn-off as he was still gentle.

This story does have a bit of kink in it, but nothing too far out there or anything between them that readers would be upset over (like a threesome).

Be careful what you wish for…

When Lord Hawkridge inherits a penniless marquessate, he must abandon his courtship of the lowborn girl he loves. Years later, she rises from commoner to textiles heiress. Hawk has never banished her from his heart. Here’s their chance to share his home! But how can he convince a woman whose trust he destroyed that he desires her far more than her money?

Faith Digby’s chaotic world is too full to bother with men. She controls half a boarding school, one life-endangering secret, and two recently gentrified parents. There’s no time for the old flame roaring back into her life. Not when admitting she still loves him would imperil everything and everyone she holds dear…

My Review

This one has it all! A secret love, heartbreak, and more secrets. I couldn’t put it down because there was something at every turn to pull me in more. Their past story is heartbreaking and he wanted to make things right so much. I loved how no matter how hard she tried her heart reacted to him and wanted to believe him. I did not see her secret coming at all and held my breath when he found out. What he decided was not what I thought was going to happen, but I loved it.

Faith made it clear she never wanted to see him again, but fate brought him back. I loved her and the work she did at the school. She can break your heart when talking about the past. I loved when she realized he needed to forgive himself.

Hawk’s whole life has been a mess and he’s vowed to never be like his father or guardian. My heart melted at how much he was trying to restore things and how much he hated what he had done. He reacted but thought things through when it came to her secret.

I loved her parents throughout the story and his brother and mother.

All’s Fair in Love and Abduction

Coddled and pampered, since her mother’s death, Vesta Chambers is preparing for her come-out only to have her father return from London with a bride of his own! With her world turned upside down, Vesta accompanies her godmother to London, where she is smitten the instant she lays eyes on Captain Hewett DeVere of the Seventeenth Light Dragoons.

Captain Hew DeVere, younger brother to Vesta’s godfather, Viscount Ludovic “The Devil” DeVere, has returned from the American war scarred, disillusioned, and looking forward to settling down to a quiet and respectable life. When Hew turns his eyes toward the widowed Diana, Vesta is prepared to take extreme measures to prove just how wrong he is. But, Hew didn’t survive the worst of the war only to succumb to Vesta’s wayward wiles.

Proving the adage that opposites attract, this hilarious romantic romp pits a would-be huntress against a gallant hero in an epic war of wills.

My Review

This is not my normal kind read, but I did enjoy most of it. I like that it was a different take on the typical troupes. It did provide some laughs which is different from most like this and I really liked that. It is a faster read than I tend to like, but I did love a couple of scenes because they were funny. Even though I don’t tend to read books like this I still want to know what happens in the other books.

Vesta is every bit the spoiled brat. I didn’t like her until near the end when she realized what her actions can cause. I felt for her because she never expected her father to come home with a bride.

Hew is the kind of man that is easy to fall for. He’s a war hero and every bit the gentleman. He was exactly what she needed because he was her opposite. I liked his backstory and the twist with him.

A spinster finds freedom as a theatre set painter until a chance meeting with the marquis who broke her heart has her questioning what she wants for her future.

My Review

*I received a copy of Historical Hellions in exchange for my honest review

This one is a bit different and I loved it. I loved that I didn’t really know what was going to happen for sure in this one. They both had changed in the few years since they last saw each other and fate brought them back together. I loved when they both got made and told people off.

Beth is stubborn and not always for the best reasons. She tended to blame herself for things and needed Micheal to make her see herself and lift her up. I felt for her from the start because she seemed so real in how she felt.

Micheal has been searching for Beth for a long time. He never stopped loving her and saw her worth when others didn’t always. I loved that he didn’t care about doing what his father wanted and followed his heart.

Inspired by the tale of Sleeping Beauty–an erotically charged historical romance novella from the acclaimed Fiery Tales series. One sleeping rake, one scorching kiss, one night of unforgettable passion…

Five years ago, the notorious rake, Adrien d’Aspe, Marquis de Beaulain, was awakened by a sensuous kiss–and experienced a night of raw ecstasy that was branded into his memory.

Years later, he spots his mysterious seductress–and this time, he has no intention of letting her go…

**NOTE: Originally published in the AWAKENED BY A KISS anthology.

My Review

*I received a copy of Historical Hellions which includes this book from one of the authors in exchange for my honest review

Normally I don’t like ones at this spice level, but I loved this one. I loved that it was set in France, that there was a small mystery surrounding that night, and a twist at the end I did expect. There is a lot of steam in this one, but enough of a story to balance it out for me.

Catherine had her reasons for what she did five years ago and the memory of that night has stayed with her. Once she told her whole story everything made sense and I loved her.

Adrien is not shy at all about the life he lives, but he is still loveable. There is something about how he wanted answers about that night that makes you love him because it wasn’t for bad reasons.

Disinherited by his parents and estranged from his wife, Fallen pleasure club co-owner Lord Grayson ‘Devil’ Deveraux long ago learned to place his trust in ledgers rather than people. But his ice-cold reserve hides the scandalous truth: he’s a man who craves pain with his pleasure, and a loving lady to instruct him.

Banished to the country when her whirlwind marriage collapsed, Lady Eliza Deveraux never knew why Grayson fell out of love with her: she’d tried so damned hard to quell her fiery self and be a proper, obedient wife. But when Eliza is forced to return to London and back into Grayson’s intoxicating world, banked passions reignite. Can a marriage built on secrets and pretense truly get a second chance?

My Review

*Received a copy via NetGalley

This is definitely not my usual style of book. I enjoyed the story between them and just wasn’t into the language being used and some of what went on in Fallen. It was different seeing other things besides what most romances have and I really like the characters. I did love the ending with her mother a lot and his brother.

Eliza is definitely bold and likes to be in charge, but her mother has drilled it into to be the opposite. When she finally realized that she needed to be her and not what her mother wanted it was great!

Grayson’s life is a bit shocking, but he is very likable and very nice even in business unless you did something wrong. He had his friends that he was open with, but he didn’t explain everything to his wife at first.

His friends sounded very interesting and fun. If you don’t mind the language and whips, feathers, and other detailed things then this is probably a good book for you.
