Too Scot To Handle by Grace Burrowes

Too scot to handle:800.jpg

Don’t Miss the Newest Fabulous Romantic Historical Fiction Novel, written by Grace Burrows!

Release Date– 7/25/17

 

I thoroughly enjoyed this second novel in the Windham Bride Series. Grace Burrowes has an amazing talent for describing London’s Aristocrat Lifestyle with razor sharp detail, and wit.

Military life was what Captain Colin MacHugh, was accustomed to, not his new life as a titled gentleman. As far as Lord Colin MacHugh was concerned, living as a respected gentleman in polite society should come with a rule book. At first, Colin was grateful for Winthrop Montague’s friendship, influence, and guidance, regarding the proper behavior befitting a titled gentleman. But that was before Colin was the target of a very expensive, mean-spirited escapade. But, when this prank didn’t yield the desired humiliation that Winthrop Montague had counted on, things got ugly.

Anwen Windham loved spending her days at the orphanage. Twelve rascal orphan boys had stolen her heart, especially the four older ones; and they looked up to Miss Anwen as if she were their angel. Lord Colin took a position on the orphanage’s board of directors, partly because he was interested in helping the boys, but mostly because the orphanage was one of Anwen Windham’s passions. Everyone considered Anwen quiet and unassuming; Colin knew better. Anwen Windham was a fireball, and he very much wanted to know all about her.

Ordinarily, it wouldn’t take much of a push to send Colin back to Scotland. He missed his homeland something fierce. But, Colin had ties to London, which he needed to see through first. He also wanted to teach his English gentlemen friends a lesson or two before he left. They didn’t know, that he too, could be, cunning, cold, and calculating. Colin would take his revenge, though, only in a proper titled gentleman way, of course.

If you love Regency Romance, you’ll enjoy Too Scot to Handle.

Everything We Left Behind by Kerry Lonsdale

Don’t Miss Kerry Lonsdale’s newest Romantic Suspense Novel.

Everything We Left Behind, Coming 7/4/17

 

Everything We Left Behind is a fascinating story that captivated my attention from the very start.

For six years, after surviving an attempt on his life, James Donato from California lived in a dissociative fugue state. His brother, Thomas, assisted him in starting a new life. He set James up with a new identity, as Carlos Dominguez, an artist living in Mexico. Carlos, having no memory of his prior life as James, and no recollection of Aimee, the love of his life, married a Mexican woman. Although Carlos is now widowed, he’s content living with his two sons in Mexico; that was, though, until, Aimee showed up in his life, cracking his dissociative fugue state.

Carlos’s world comes apart when he learns that he is James Donato, a man from a crooked, untrustworthy family. Carlos is petrified for his family’s safety. James will have no memory of his life in Mexico, his children or Natalya. Carlos’s real fear, however, is what the Donato family will do to his sons. The family member who tried to kill him is due out of jail, soon. If James doesn’t know that he has sons, how will he protect them?

Carlos knows that his time is running out. The increase in vivid dreams and headaches are positive indicators that his true identity is trying to break through. So, Carlos starts to write his life down in excruciating detail for James. Carlos desperately wants James to know just how much Natalya and his sons mean to him.

Everything We Left Behind is about a man searching for who he is, letting go of what is no longer his, and finding acceptance and happiness in life once again. The story is told from both James and Carlos’s point of view. I was so engrossed in the character’s lives that I couldn’t put the book down. I loved everything about this novel and highly recommend giving it a read.

Thank you, Lake Union Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!

Days of Desire by Tina Donahue

Days of desire.::.jpg:500.jpg

Royce Hastings came from an Aristocrat household. He shouldn’t have had to make a deal with the devil. But, his father had left his family destitute, and Royce needed money to free his mother and sisters who were now indentured slaves. Bishop was a greedy, evil man and Royce should have known better than to have anything to do with him. But he didn’t, and now Bishop was blackmailing him. Royce was charged with finding the Island where Tristan, a famous pirate, and his wife, Diane, were hiding. Royce knew that Bishop planned on killing Tristan, making slaves of the Islanders, and taking Diane for himself. And if Royce didn’t deliver, Bishop would send his mother and sisters to a place far worse than they were in, now.

As if Royce’s life wasn’t complicated enough, he had to go and fall in love with the Island’s healer, Simone, make friends with Tristan, his wife, and many Islanders. How could he bring Bishop’s evil to the Island, now? But, if he didn’t, what would happen to his mother and sisters?

Days of Desire is an entertaining read. Fans of adult historical fiction romance will find this book enjoyable.

Thank you, Kensington Books and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

The Orphan of India by Sharon Maas

The Orphan of India:800.jpg

 

The Orphan of India is an amazing, emotional story about an Indian girl, Jyothi, who rose from the slums of Bombay, to become a world famous violinist.

Monika and Jack Kingsley fell in love with Jyothi. They couldn’t wait to bring their new adopted daughter to England. They believed that once Jyothi was home with them, all would be well. But, Jyothi was grieving. She not only lost her beloved mother but also, the only lifestyle, she’d ever known. To shield herself from the confusing new world, Jyothi put up thick internal walls to keep everything and everyone out. With Monika and Jack’s love and encouragement, though, Jyothi was able to bloom. And, although Jyothi grew to love her new parents, her true comfort, was music. When life didn’t make sense for Jyothi, music would soothe her; until, even that, failed her. Jyothi was in love with Dean and the more she tried to force that puzzle piece, into her life, when it didn’t fit, the more broken she became.

This character-driven story moved me. I became deeply engrossed in Jyothi’s life and felt as if I actually knew her. I ached for Jyothi when she was rejected and rejoiced with her when she reached new accomplishments. I found it frustrating, though, when Jyothi would lose hope so easily. But, because of Jyothi’s numerous losses, she was an emotionally fragile woman. And, although she had wonderful mentors and champions around her, some lessons, Jyothi found, she only learned the hard way; with a lot of pain and suffering.

I enjoyed reading Jyothi’s story, and even though I felt the novel could be tightened up, and shortened, I still loved it.
