Regency Romance between an angelic vicar and a devilish debutante: A must read if you love sweet and sizzle with an abundance of heart.

THE DEVILISH DEBUTANTE
Miss Rhododendron Mossant has given up on men, love, and worst of all, herself. Once a flirtatious beauty, the nightmares of her past have frozen her in fear. Ruined and ready to call it quits, all she can hope for is divine intervention.

THE ANGELIC VICAR
Justin White, Vicar turned Earl, has the looks of an angel but the heart of a rake. He isn’t prepared to marry and yet honor won’t allow anything less. Which poses something of a problem… because, by God, when it comes to this vixen, a war is waging between his body and his soul.

SCANDAL’S SWEET SIZZLE
She’s hopeless and he’s hopelessly devoted. Together they must conquer the ton, her disgrace, and his empty pockets. With a little deviousness, and a miracle or two, is it possible this devilish match was really made in heaven?

My Review

This book takes place at the same time as Hell’s Belle so I was excited to see what happened between these two. I’ve never seen a story with a Vicar turned Earl so that was definitely something new that I loved. These two clearly have something between them from the start, but they have battles to win first. I loved how much confusion there was between them about everything. There was a couple of times that I was afraid of what a certain person would do. Her father was a total shock and I wanted to wack him. A real surprise was her mother and I loved her for it. There are some fun twists with the ladies and a well-deserved end for one person. The ending left me laughing and happy to see them all happy.

Rhoda is almost a shell of herself, but there is still a fire in her. I loved how she opened up to him and was ready to battle the ton. She needed someone that would understand her and help her get over the past and see she is safe.

Justin had loved her longer than anyone knew and he would do anything for her. He came to her resue in more ways than one. I loved how he always stayed positive and didn’t give up.

There are a few scenes that could potentially be triggering to some. There are attempted sexual assaults, but they are brief and not graphic.

dismayed to find instead of the brave gentleman who sheltered her
after the tragedy, a surly rogue quick to quip and slow to trust.

With Love in Sight
The Twice Shy Series Book 1
From Romance Writers of America’s® 2017 Golden Heart® winner comes a
story of passion that is much more than meets the eye.
An aging spinster at twenty-six, all Imogen Duncan sees ahead of her is
a life of servitude to her overbearing mother. Her London Season has
passed and her desperate shyness and reserved demeanor have destroyed
any chance for a match. As her younger sister Mariah begins her own
Season with a selection of suitors, Imogen believes her chances for
excitement are well and truly lost…Until a case of mistaken
identity and an accidental kiss brings her adventure.
Burying his guilt from a decade-old tragedy beneath a life of debauchery,
Caleb Masters, Marquess of Willbridge, is content enough to meet
willing widows in dark gardens to numb the pain. But he is wholly
unprepared when an innocent miss stumbles into him, turning his
superficial world on its head.
Drawn to the rogue that mistakenly stole her first kiss, Imogen finds not a
suitor, but a friend. Free to be herself for the first time, she
begins to see a new beauty in the world around her…and see a
strength in herself she never knew she possessed. But when friendship
turns to passion, Imogen will accept nothing less than Caleb’s
heart. Can a healing of the past lead to the promise of a future together?

My Rating: ❤❤❤❤❤ Spice Level:💋💋💋

This one picks up from where the last one left off and will guessing just like in the last one. He saw what she needed that no one else did and brought out a side of her that had long been hidden. It is not love at first sight after all these years for either one. The twists of who is trying to push them together wasn’t a shock, but the twist to it was. I was holding my breath in the end because of who was trying to keep them apart. There are many parts that will have you laughing and parts that will take your breath away.

Emily is just as stubborn as her brother, but it has been hidden for a long time. I was so glad to see her get her own story because I knew there was more to her. She didn’t realize that she was as strong as she was and that she hid behind her scare.

Malcolm is straight to the point and doesn’t sugarcoat anything. He is one that you need to get to know to fully understand and love. But once you learn everything about him you will love him like crazy.

An aging spinster at 26, all Imogen Duncan sees ahead of her is a life of servitude to her overbearing mother. Her London Season has passed and her desperate shyness and reserved demeanor has destroyed any chance for a match. As her younger sister Mariah begins her own Season and must choose between many suitors, Imogen believes her chances for excitement are well and truly past. But a case of mistaken identity and an unintended kiss brings an excitement into her life that she never dreamed of.

Burying the guilt he suffers from his brother’s death a decade ago beneath a life of debauchery, Caleb Masters, Marquess of Willbridge is content enough to meet willing widows in dark gardens to numb the pain. But he is wholly unprepared when an innocent miss stumbles into his life, turning his superficial world on its head.

Drawn to the quiet, kind girl, whose kiss he stole, Caleb and Imogen form an unlikely friendship. But the more Imogen reveals of her wit and charm, the deeper Caleb finds himself falling for this bespectacled beauty. Refusing to let Imogen be tainted by his demons, he does everything in his power to fight the growing attraction. But when friendship turns to passion the situation between them takes an irreversible turn.

Caleb learns that behind Imogen’s placid exterior lies a will of steel when, to his bafflement, she refuses his marriage proposal. But now that he has possessed her, he cannot let her go so easily. Can Caleb convince Imogen to give him a chance—and to perhaps heal his soul in the process?

My Review

Two people afraid of love that are also very stubborn will have you saying will they or won’t they. Their first meeting would have set the gossips flying and it definitely met they were going to be interesting. I loved that everyone around them saw what was between them except for themselves and her mother. There were times I would have loved to knock them both upside the head, but they had family to pretty much do that. The story about his brother’s death was heartbreaking and that pain had been carried for way too long by everyone. The ending left me wanting more from them.

Imogen can break your heart with how much people forget about her, but there was a fire in waiting for a chance to ignite. I loved her right away because I knew she was going to rebel against her mother. Her sister and father were great at supporting her when needed even if they didn’t know everything.

  Caleb lost his heart the moment he met her and just didn’t know it. I loved that he saw the real her that was hidden. He will pull at your heart with how much he has tortured himself over his brother.

Rakish Colin Rowley, Viscount Hartsford is going home for Christmas to win a wager. Widowed Lucy Ashbrook, facing reduced circumstances, is forced to travel with him. During the four-day journey, mysterious events throw them together, compelling them to remember their emotional-ridden past. Only the magic of Christmastide can rekindle a love they couldn’t forget.

My Review

Christmastide magic at its best with a surprise twist in the end. These two are extremely stubborn and don’t know when to listen, but they are perfectly matched for each other. They had to open up and let go of the past to move on and fully understand each other. I loved how they were still connected after all this time. I did not see the twist at the end.

Lucy is understanding and caring even when she is being stubborn. I loved her right away because she saw how hurt he was and that he needed help.

Colin has been slowly going downhill for years and needed someone to help pull him up. I loved how he tried to be the rake, but you could see the real him underneath.

Even if the world is falling to pieces, when the treasure of the heart is discovered, a fight is needed to keep it. 

King’s agent, Bentley Courtenay—Lord Castlereagh—has been sent on his first solo mission to rescue a widow, who’s been abandoned in the dense jungles of Venezuela. He intends to bring her back to England to answer questions regarding the poisoning death of a peer. Yet what awaits him in the on the Orinoco River has him wondering why the devil he ever signed up to work for the Crown. 

Widowed Cora, Lady Trammel, is on a quest to locate a deadly orchid and destroy every last bloom before the toxin she accidentally created can fall into the wrong hands. When she encounters a king’s agent who fires her imagination, she declines his demand to return to London. The fate of the world is at stake, and she has to fix her mistake, for her discovery has the capacity to kill every human on Earth. 

In the course of the journey, desire flares between Bentley and the older, more experienced Cora, but she’s not looking for love. While he loses his heart, evidence of the fabled city of El Dorado comes to light, and their mission takes a critical turn into dangerous adventure, so matters of love are shelved. Pursued by threats, time is running out to destroy the deadly toxin and protect the world’s greatest treasure from men who mean both to use both for their own insidious gain. 

My Review

Finally, a romance where the roles are reversed when it comes to experience in passion!!! This may just be the couple to match Emmaline and Miles. There is an intense spark between them from the start that I was just waiting to explode. And it did not disappoint! They were met with challenge after challenge as they searched for the orchids and tried to work out their feelings. There are many twists and turns to who, what, and why that I wasn’t even close to being 100% right. That made it perfect! I laughed at how Gibbs and her assistant kept giving them advice. I held my breath at the end and then laughed when they escaped. 

Cora is nowhere near what I expected and I loved it! She is definitely capable of taking care of herself, but she deserves true love. I loved her from the start with how devoted she was to her work and saving others. Even though she was strong she was hurt by her husband and past more than she thought.

Bentley is charming, sweet, and adorable (never thought I would say that about a hero). Trouble finds him everywhere, but he always comes out it alive. I absolutely loved his journal entries because they added so much to the story. His heart was lost to her the moment he saw her in that locket.

We got hints of Bentley in India and I so happy to see his story. There are Indian Jones and National Treasure vibes throughout the story and I love. I hope to see these two again. I also love that they are older than most couples.

He’s the last Rogue standing, and the wickedest … 

Charles Humphrey, the Earl of Lonsdale is infamous for his seductions. With laughing gray eyes and a halo of blond hair, he’s every woman’s wicked dream. Beneath that devil-may-care grin he has a painful past that has made him sure love was not for him, even as the rest of his friends, the members of the League of Rogues, settle down in wedded bliss. When he accidentally rescues a mysterious beauty with eyes as haunted as his own and shares one life-changing kiss with her, she vanishes in the night. Charles vows to find this angel who might yet save his soul but he knows anyone he cares about is in grave danger when an old enemy resurfaces a final time for revenge… 

She’s the only woman who can save him… 

Lily has secrets, too many secrets. When she’s abducted and taken into the London underworld by a gang of nefarious brutes, she’s rescued by Charles, the one man who can never know her past. She can’t let him discover her feelings or her secrets, but she can’t resist sharing one kiss with him before escaping his passionate embrace. That taste of the last bachelor of the League of Rogues leaves her desiring a future she cannot have – especially when her master demands she prove her loyalty in a most deadly way… 

Warning: This book contains a scandalous rogue with a heart of gold, a lady who risks it all to save him, and a league of rogues who value friendship and love above all else.

This a hold your breath kind of story. The end to everything is finally near and it is full of shocking twists that make you hold your breath and moments that make you laugh. I never saw any of the twists coming and their instant passion leap off the pages. Slowly all the details of what happened all those years ago come out to explain why he hates them. You will not know everything until the end because he is twisted and you feel sorry for him at times while hating him. I absolutely loved that the wives figured out one of her secrets and the plan they set in motion. I laughed at Emily and her way of chaperoning. I also can perfectly picture him carrying her up the stairs while looking around.   

Lily is full of surprises from her training to who she really. I was completely shocked by her and loved it. She was extremely brave and strong to do everything she did especially in the end. That blew me away and had me holding my breath.

Charles has been slowly slipping away from his friends for some time now. He hides behind that smile of his, but he has a heart of gold and is struggling. I always knew he was going to have the most shocking story.

I absolutely loved his mother and sister.

Beware romantic spirits from Christmas past…

Due to the terms of an estranged relative’s will, the Duke of Silkridge must revisit the cold, unforgiving mountains where he lost everything he once loved. As soon as he rights his family legacy, he’ll return to London where he belongs. He definitely won’t rekindle the forbidden spark crackling between him and the irresistible spitfire he’d left behind…

Noelle Pratchett is immune to charming rakehells like the arrogant duke. He stole her heart, stole her first kiss, and then stole away one night never to return. Now he’s back—and so are all the old feelings. Noelle knows he won’t stay. But how can she maintain her icy shields when every heated glance melts her to her core?

The Twelve Dukes of Christmas is a laugh-out-loud historical romance series of heartwarming Regency romps nestled in a picturesque snow-covered village. After all, nothing heats up a winter night quite like finding oneself in the arms of a duke!

My Review

This story definitely had me laughing throughout the whole book. This story takes on A Christmas Story vibes because everyone is happy to live in Christmas (Cressmouth). The town is full of unique and fun people that will win you over and have you in the Christmas spirit. That spark from 5 years before is still there and no matter what they tell themselves it is going to get stronger. They quickly realized they couldn’t let go of those feelings and that the Christmas spirit was bringing them together.

Noelle is magical in her own way. She does the work of multiple people and does it quickly. She knew something had caused him to leave before and understood once he told her everything. I loved her right away because she instantly makes you smile with how she does things and talks to him.

Benjamin hates Christmas because it brings back horrible memories of pasts Christmases. He broke my heart because of how much he desperately wanted that heirloom. The Christmas spirit slowly lightened him up the longer he was there. He found what he really needed.

This masked lord…
Lord Jasper, younger son of a duke, suffered horrible burns fighting in the Napoleonic Wars. He wears a mask to hide his face from the stares and screams and finds comfort in the shadows. Jasper is an exceptional bounty hunter, so when a woman summons him to her deathbed and asks him to find her runaway daughter before she passes away, he doesn’t refuse. Jasper is close to his quarry when he’s knifed by an assailant. Imagine his surprise when he regains consciousness in the arms of the woman he seeks. Except she’s not at all what he expected.

Is not the only one with scars.
On a remote cliff on the sea, Olivia Carlisle calls her five-year-old son in from an approaching storm. But the little boy is more interested in the man he’s found on the trail to their hidden cottage. Olivia fears men and wants nothing more than to leave the injured man where she found him. But his knife wound is severe, and with the approaching storm, she knows leaving him will condemn him to death. As Jasper begins to heal, Olivia acknowledges her attraction to him, even though such emotions terrify her almost as much as returning to London. Jasper must convince her that her only chance at safety is to challenge the man who pursues her. They must travel into the lion’s den—he to face his vulnerability and she to face her worst fears.

My Review

I knew the first time Jasper appeared in Third Son’s a Charm that his story would not disappoint. Jasper and Olivia are two people that have something horrible in their pasts that they need to overcome. Their passion and understanding of each other is rare and perfect. It was amazing how easily they seemed to click and light a spark between them. The whole time they were together in that cottage was like a fairytale. When they got to London it was another creature. Certain peoples lies and plans were at work to keep them apart. I was holding my breath at so many points with kidnappings, schemes, and the prince regent. I may have cheered at the end.

Olivia is one of my favorite heroines. She is extremely strong to spend all that time on the run and to go back to London to take on the man that mad her run. I loved seeing her learn to trust again and become braver and stronger. She had no problems standing up to anyone and didn’t think twice about doing what she needed to do. She was like a new woman in that ballroom when she said no and realized she loved Jasper.

Jasper is also a favorite hero on mine. He knew he right away he would not take her back and that he would protect her no matter what. He pulled at my heart every time he was alone with Richard. When he took off his mask and learned that it was not as bad as he thought I wanted to cheer. He realized that he was a hero and deserved to be loved and to stop hiding.

I did not expect the part with the friend being married or what happened there. Hope he also gets a happy ending.

This story could be triggering to some as the topics of fires and rape play a big part in it. There is nothing graphic and they are handled tastefully and perfectly in my opinion. Both topics are in the past.

A spirited lady facing spinsterhood. A common man with a noble mission. And a surprise that just might be waiting for them under the mistletoe. . .

Bow Street Runner Daffin Oakleaf abhors Christmas. Carol singing and holiday cheer only remind him of a dark time. When a close friend calls on him for help, Daffin is happy to capitalize on the distraction. But when he learns the lovely Lady Regina is the one in danger, he’s to become bodyguard to the captivating woman…

Regina has one mission: to find a night of passion in the arms of a gentleman. Considered firmly on the shelf, Regina has given up on marriage—but that doesn’t mean she wants to be denied the pleasure married ladies experience. Daffin has long captured her attention…and when a threat calls him to her side, the sparks between them ignite. But how can a hired bodyguard find his way into Regina’s noble heart?

My Review

Sparks fly like you’ve never read before with these two. I couldn’t put it down from the start with her plan and the meeting in his office. No one could deny what was between them and wanted them to be happy.  The passion between them just kept building as time went on. The added mystery of who was trying to kill Regina does not disappoint and I thought I had it figured out twice and was completely wrong. I absolutely loved how her family was especially her grandmother. No one cared about his past and it brought them closer. I laughed at the ending when the women set in on her uncle.

Regina is tired of not being able to make her decisions and she was going to make one big one before her birthday. She was not an ordinary girl hid from danger, she took it on and didn’t let fear take over. I loved how she got him to open up and didn’t even blink at the news story about him.

Daffin has a tragic reason for hating Christmas, but he will do anything for his friends that are like family. Just when I thought I had him figured out something else about him would surprise me. He has something special about him that captures you and makes you want to know him. I could just picture him when he said: “Please give me a reason to pull this trigger.” when he crashed into that room.

This is the first time a blonde hero has become a favorite. This is one of those where you can picture everything.

Lady Catherine Langdon is special, and not because she’s the daughter of a duke. She comes from a long line of individuals born with extraordinary gifts, and she is one of the few that has a variation of all three. On the brink of war she makes a decision that will irrevocably alter the course of her life—love or duty.

Asher Rossington, the Marquess of Seabrook, decided at a very early age that he would not live an idle life. His father forbade him from being a spy for the crown, but he chose to ignore it. Ash never regretted his choice, but wished he could have repaired his relationship with his father before he died. Now with the fate of the world in turmoil he has to make another hard decision—remain a spy for king and country, or go home and honor his father’s title.

The Great War brings Catherine and Asher into each other’s lives. Only time will tell if their destiny is to be together, or if they will ultimately serve a higher purpose.

My Review

I rarely get to read one set in this time period or a good war romance and this was an amazing read! The war kept them apart and brought them together many times. I loved that they seemed to instantly fall in love and that love kept them going through many horrible things. I held my breath many times afraid of what was going to happen with all the characters. The wedding and ending were perfect.

Catherine used her gifts to help people and she wasn’t going to let them go to waste. I loved her right away because she didn’t run from anything and had no problem saying what she thought.

Asher met her at the perfect time in his life. He was determined to help his country and rescue those he loved and cared about. I loved him right away because of how he talked and interacted with others.
