My Review

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

This is my favorite in this series! I could not put it down and flew through it. It’s one of those magical Christmas love stories that has everything you want. I loved how it started with his daughter and that instant connection for her and the little girl. I was not expecting what happened in the mountains but loved it so much. The journey of him opening his heart fully will touch your heart.

Rowena is an amazing girl that loves everyone and people are drawn to her. I loved her because she didn’t hide her feelings and they were clear to everyone. She never wanted to replace his first wife, she continued on feeling a space in their hearts.

Quinn clearly loved his wife with all his heart and didn’t want to ever fall in love again. I loved that he didn’t try to hide his emotions or feelings like many would. He fought with his heart and needed a sign that he could love fully again.

As much as he wished it weren’t true, he wanted to hold her deep into the night. It was one of the things he had dearly missed as a widower. There was no woman who belonged to him, no woman who he could tuck into his side and sleep with. Surely it would not be a bad thing to let himself have this one little joy in life.
We will sleep, nothing more. I hope. Even as he thought this, his mind replayed their wedding night, how wonderful it felt to have her beneath him, to taste her lips, to feel her body grip him tightly as they chased the building waves of pleasure.
“Thank you, Quinn.” Rowena was kissing him again and he lost control in a mere instant.
He rotated their bodies and pinned her against the wall, his hands exploring her curves, shaping the flare of her hips and the softness of her breasts. She arched into him, nipping at his lips playfully. He loved that about her, how she made him feel young and happy again. Losing Maura had aged him a decade, but being with Rowena, and her teasing kisses and playful nibbles, resurrected the ghosts of his youthful passions.
Years of practice had him lifting her up and carrying her to his bedroom. They only bumped into one wall and it was his arm he knocked into the wood paneling. With a little curse at the pain, he finally reached the bed and dropped her onto it. The woman was giggling. Quinn climbed up the bed over her and his clever wife was already working at the buttons on his waistcoat and peeling it off his shoulders. When she reached for his trousers, he gently pushed her hands away so he could get them off faster. Desire fogged his head, and his lips curved into a boyish grin that couldn’t be helped.
“You’re so lovely,” he whispered as he bent to kiss her. His hands rucked her skirts up to her thighs and he growled in frustration at all the fabric preventing him from reaching what he needed most.
Laughing, Rowena lifted her bottom so he could push the skirts to her waist. He covered one stocking-clad knee with his palm, urging her to part her legs as he tugged at her drawers. There was something wonderfully sinful about taking a woman fully clothed.
They shared a moan as he sank into her welcoming heat. She was damned tight, but wet and hot enough to burn him.
As he thrust into her deeper, their hips jerked together. She whimpered and threw her head back. Pins scattered as her blond hair broke free of the elaborate coiffure and rippled across the dark blue coverlet. Something inside him, a dark animal side, broke free. He didn’t want to hold back, not any longer. He covered Rowena’s mouth with his, kissing hard, giving her no chance to breathe as he drove into her again and again. He didn’t want to think about how he desired her, about how being with her like this drove him mad with hunger. It was like nothing else he’d ever experienced. When he was inside her, he couldn’t think past his next breath, the next surge back into her body, and how good it felt when she squeezed him with her inner muscles. His heart beat thunderously and boomed against his eardrums.
Her palms slid over his body, clawing at the shirt he still wore. They’d not gotten past his trousers and her undergarments. And he didn’t care. He needed more…he needed…Panting, he lifted up off her and rolled her over onto her stomach, raising her dress over her bare bottom. He gripped her hips, repositioned himself, and thrust back into her from behind. Rowena hissed in surprise and dug into the blankets as she stifled a low moan.
That never-ending sense of madness and the need to connect to her kept pulsing through him and he rammed into her over and over.
He was aware, dimly, of her coming apart beneath him by the sounds of her muffled cries. Quinn didn’t bother to do the same. He came with a shout and an exhalation as his body went limp. Doing his best to not crush her, he collapsed onto the bed and kept her tucked against him. Her bare bottom still rubbed against his groin and he moaned in lethargic pleasure.
Rowena was quiet, except for her shallow, quick breaths. His stomach clenched in sudden worry and he leaned over her, cupping her face to turn it toward his. Tears coated her lashes and her eyes were a little red.
“Rowena, lass, are you all right?” His voice roughened as his anxiety deepened. He’d hurt her? Been too rough? Bloody barbarian, I am…
“I’m fine,” she whispered. “I…well…it was so intense. I didn’t know…” Her cheeks were red as fresh cranberries.
“Aye, it can be intense.” He paused, wondering how to explain what they’d experienced. He’d been married and in love before. He knew from experience that sex with someone you loved was overwhelming, not just physically but emotionally. If Rowena was feeling that way now, she was falling in with love with him. He’d known she would fall for him. She was too open, too young and sweet not to fall for her husband. And what truly worried him was how powerful his feelings for her had been, still were…
“Have I upset you?” She tried to smile, but her lips quivered. It made something deep inside him stir, like a bird in its nest after winter had passed. It was strange…he had not felt…what it was he could not readily identify.
“I’m not upset,” he promised, and against his better judgment he bent his head to hers for a slow, lingering kiss that burned clear through him like shafts of winter sunlight piercing clouds.
“I forgot how young you are.” He smiled. Ten years felt like a lifetime between them in moments like this.
Her face was still dark with uncertainty and yet he didn’t know what to say to put her at ease.

My Reviews

Taming a Christmas Wallflower by Tammy Andresen

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋💋💋

*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.

An Improper Christmas by Amy Rose Bennett

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋💋💋💋

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

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋💋💋

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.

Secluded with My Hellion by Dawn Brower

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋💋💋

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.

Her Perfect Rogue by Amanda Mariel

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋💋💋

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.

The Twelve Nights of Christmas by Nina Mason

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋💋💋💋

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.

Bedded Under a Christmastide Moon by Christina McKnight

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋💋💋

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.

The Rogue’s Seduction by Lauren Smith

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤

Spice Level: 💋💋💋

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!

Release Day Blast: Lauren Smith’s A Gentleman Never Surrenders

Cover Designer: Elizabeth Turner

Release Date: September 12, 2017

Synopsis

Love is worth a little scandal.

Owen Hadley needs a wife. Preferably a wealthy one. Alas, there aren’t a great number of heiresses willing to marry a rogue of no particular fortune—luckily, if there is ever a gentleman capable of melting a lady’s chilly heart, it’s Owen.

Milly has had enough of the marriage mart. If matrimony means giving up her freedom for a foppish husband, then society can take their idea of marital bliss and toss it. But when the ton’s most notorious rogue mistakenly makes his way into her bedchambers, Milly finds herself unexpectedly and unwillingly at the altar . . .

Yet the more time she spends with her new husband, the more Milly starts to wonder if the marriage she never wanted may be the best thing that’s ever happened to her. Now it’s up to Owen to convince Milly that what started as a mistake is anything but—and that every night with him will be more wonderfully scandalous than the last.

My Review

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

Wrong directions lead to love! Neither one was what the other wanted, but was what they each needed. I loved how they each thought differently about each other and how they learned about each other. I did not see the twist with his friend coming and almost shot out of my bed when the gun was fired. I didn’t want it to end and wouldn’t mess with her mother.

Milly enjoys her freedom and has done her best to avoid marriage. I loved her from the start because she didn’t hide what she thought about anything. She was so protective of her sister that she didn’t think about herself all the time.

Owen needed money, but his reason was honorable. His past is something he keeps to himself and it haunts him. I loved how always told the truth and that he didn’t think twice about helping his friend.

Blurb

An earl in the streets, a rogue in the sheets . . .

Leopold Graham, Lord Hampton, was never a man to let propriety stand in the way of his pursuit of pleasure. Hedonism is his only desire in life—until his father’s death saddles him with debts that threaten to bankrupt the entire family. Now the only thing that stands between him and utter ruin is marriage to a proper, and preferably wealthy, young lady.

Ivy Leighton is no sweet English rose. Perhaps it’s her gypsy roots, but she would rather make a spectacle of her independent spirit than sit quietly on the sidelines. If that means that the only place she’ll ever have in society is firmly on the shelf, then so be it. But when Ivy runs into the handsome, rakish Leo who’s looking for a respectable, well-bred wife, she can’t stop thinking about the troubles they can get into. Now she just has to convince him that a life with her is really what he needs.

My Review

*I received a copy from the author via NetGalley

If you’re looking a new time period to read then this one is perfect! It’s set in the Edwardian era which is new to me in historical romance and I loved it. Times are changing and the old ways are battling the new ways in this one so you get a feel for how it affected everyone. I loved his mother because she was so sneaky with her plans for them and got her own surprise in the end. They had an instant connection and she was exactly what he needed in his life.

Ivy had no plans to marry so she could keep her independence and fight for her rights. I loved her right away because of how she thought about things and didn’t stay quiet. Her backstory was different and I loved it.

Leo had changed since his father’s scandalous death and not for the better. I loved how he was with his mother and that he was doing what he thought best. When he realized who she was he changed to his true self.

I wish this was longer because I flew through it.
