#Lord of Vice by Erica Ridley–Review-5 stars-#NetGalley

Lord of Vice:>850.jpgNew From Erica Ridley- Lord of Vice- Out Now!

 

 

Lord of Vice is a well-written and captivating historical fiction romance.

Maxwell Gideon was the founder of a successful gaming club, The Cloven Hoof. He was also known as the Lord of Vice. And, although, Max was not of noble birth, titled and non-titled gentleman, alike, sought entrance to his establishment. Max enjoyed turning away many of the esteemed nobility who had denied him access to their clubs.

Max wanted to expand the establishment, but to do so, he needed to own the deed to the Cloven Hoof. Unfortunately, his secret and silent partner was the one who held that precious document. Max has given several, more-than-fair offers to buy the business, through their liaison, Heath Grenville. But Max’s silent partner did not agree to any of them. Max wasn’t seeking the deed, to boost his ego; he had specific plans, that he wanted to implement. And to do that, he needed to own the business. He also wanted to prove to Polite Society, that they’d been wrong, about him and his family. 

Max didn’t know that the woman who intrigued him to the point of distraction was the secret partner who had been refusing his proposals. Bryony Grenville, the holder of the deed to The Cloven Hoof, was falling in love with Max Gideon. She was afraid, however, that once he found out who she was, their growing friendship, would die, and her heart would break. 

I loved the characters, Bryony and Max. They were both intelligent, opinionated, and kind. I found their witty banter humorous, and their relationship touching. If you enjoy regency romance, you’ll love, Lord of Vice.

Thank you, WebMotion Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

#Last Night With The Earl by Kelly Bowen–Review–4 stars #NetGalley

last night with the earl:::.jpg 850..jpgNew Historical Fiction Romance by Kelly Bowen–Coming 9/25/18

 

 

Eli Dawes, the Earl of Rivers, was once a notorious rake. Eli was titled, handsome, and charming. He enjoyed women and women adored him. But, the one woman Eli desired above all others, was engaged to Anthony, his best friend. Anthony, however, didn’t respect the woman he supposedly loved and was to marry. Eli wouldn’t find out, though, just how awful his friend was until it was too late. 

The battle of Waterloo changed the Earl physically and emotionally. The self-confident man who had joined the military was not the same man who returned home, to England. The Earl’s gross facial disfigurement made sure of that.

Rose Hayward ran a school for young women from prominent families. She was also a much sought out artist. Rose’s passion for helping flawed individuals raise their self-esteem, came after Rose was shunned in London. She believed, Eli Dawes, and her fiancé, Anthony, were the ones responsible for her humiliation. But, Rose didn’t have all the facts; facts she discovered, would both sting and heal.  

Last Night With The Earl is an enjoyable historical fiction romance. Thank you, Forever-Grand Central Publishing, for my advanced review copy.

Bio (from author’s page on Amazon)

I was born and raised in Manitoba, Canada. I attended the University of Manitoba where I earned a graduate degree in veterinary physiology and spent many years happily working as a research scientist in the agriculture industry. None of which, of course, has anything to do with writing romance novels.

My writing stemmed from my lifelong obsession with history, a weakness for a good love story and after my first child was born, I sat down to do what I’d also wanted to do – write a novel. (The entire process being facilitated by the abundance of winter months that can be found in this particular province). 

Currently, I live in Winnipeg with my husband and two boys who are wonderfully patient and supportive of the writing process. Except, that is, when they need a goalie for street hockey.

 

 

 

#The Roses of Feldstone by Esther Hatch–Review–4 stars-#NetGalley

The Roses of Feldstone:.jpg 850...jpgNew Historical Fiction Romance by Esther Hatch–The Roses of Feldstone–Out Now

 

 

Rose was heartbroken over the loss of William’s affection. William had always been a kind and thoughtful person to everyone. He used to be that way to Rose too, but not lately. Ever since William became the heir to his father’s earldom, he was a changed man. Their once easy friendship turned into a sparring match of angry words and uncomfortable silences. Although William loved Feldstone, his dream had always been to become a doctor, not the keeper of Feldstone. However, when his older brother ran off and married a foreigner, the title fell to William.

Rose couldn’t understand why William changed overnight. They both knew that they could never marry. Because, unfortunately, Rose was the youngest daughter of a baron, and William’s father would never approve of her. Reluctantly, Rose accepted this. So why did William have to ignore and humiliate her? They had been good friends, after all.

The Roses of Feldstone is a delightful, sweet, light historical fiction romance. 

Thank you, Covenant Communications and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

#Once A Scoundrel by Mary Jo Putney–Review-5 stars #NetGalley

Once a scoundrel:.jpg 850.jpgMary Jo Putney’s Newest Historical Fiction Release–Coming 9/25/18

 

 

Once A Scoundrel is a captivating historical fiction novel, well-crafted with adventure, romance, and pirates. 

Gabriel Vance came from a long line of Royal Navy men and used to be the favorite grandson of a well-known military hero. But, Gabriel’s action in the heat of a battle resulted in a dishonorable discharge and a royal shunning from his grandfather.  Gabriel’s grandmother couldn’t treat her grandson as her husband did. So, to continue corresponding with his beloved grandmother, Gabriel changed his name to Gabriel Hawkins.

 Gabriel hesitated when asked to save Lady Aurora and her cousin, from a kidnapper. His own memories of being a slave were still fresh. But after seeing Lady Aurora’s picture, Gabriel couldn’t just sit back and not try to rescue her. 

Lady Aurora and Constance were mentally preparing themselves for months of slavery when Gabriel Hawkins showed up on the scene. Lady Aurora was surprised to find that her rescuer Gabriel, and kidnapper, Malek Reis were acquainted with one another. 

Gabriel was bargaining for Lady Aurora and her cousin’s freedom, when Malek accepted Gabriel’s price, under one condition. That condition, however, would bring Lady Aurora, Constance, Gabriel and his crew into more danger than she could have ever imagined. The one thing Lady Aurora knew for sure was that she was falling for the handsome sea captain and rescuer, Gabriel Hawkins.

Gabriel knew that showing Lady Aurora affection would get them both punished and possibly killed, but staying away from her was becoming more and more difficult.

Once a Scoundrel is a riveting read and one that I stayed up into the night to finish. If you enjoy historical fiction romance and a bit of adventure this book is for you.

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

A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USAToday bestselling author, Mary Jo Putney was born in Upstate New York with a reading addiction, a condition for which there is no known cure. Her entire romance writing career is an accidental byproduct of buying a computer for other purposes. 

Her novels are known for psychological depth and intensity and include historical and contemporary romance, fantasy, and young adult fantasy. Winner of numerous writing awards, including two RITAs and two Romantic Times Career Achievement awards, she has five times had books listed among the Library Journal’s top five romances of the year, and three times had books among the top ten romances of Booklist, the magazine of the American Library Association. 

Her favorite reading is great stories, but in a pinch she’ll settle for the backs of cereal boxes. She’s delighted that e-publishing can now make available books that have been out of print. 

 

 

#My Dearest Enemy by Jennifer Moore–Review-5 stars #NetGalley

My Dearest Enemy::.jpg 850.jpgDon’t Miss Jennifer Moore’s Newest Historical Fiction Romance–My Dearest Enemy!

 

My Dearest Enemy is a compelling read. Once I started it this novel, I couldn’t put it down. I finished the book in one day. 

The year was 1812, and the Americans were in Canada, fighting Great Britain. Abigail Tidwell was tired of living alone, freezing, and shouldering the chores by herself. She was outside gathering wood, when she noticed, the barn door ajar. Upon investigation Abigail found, an American officer, unconscious, bleeding, and suffering from an arrowhead to his side, and a knife wound to his arm.

When Captain Prescott demanded that Abigail leave her home and follow him, she felt betrayed. She had nursed the American officer back to health; and, this is how he thanks her? But when Abigail discovered, that it was her doctoring skills that were needed, Abigail left without complaint. The longer Abigail spent time with Captain Emmett Prescott, the more she enjoyed his company. She was falling for the enemy and didn’t know what to do about it.

Emmett felt like a failure when his soldiers, himself, and Abigail were captured. Abigail was a healer and a Canadian, so she didn’t think that she had anything to worry about. She was wrong. British officer, Lieutenant Fox, made it very clear that he didn’t believe her story. The Lieutenant was a cunning and cruel man. He took great pleasure, in making people, who crossed him, suffer. Unfortunately, Captain Emmett Prescott was at the top of his list. 

My Dearest Enemy is well researched and written. I became engrossed in the story and cared about the characters, right from the start. The romance between Abigail and Emmitt is heartwarming, engaging and sweet. I have read several of Jennifer Moore’s books and have never been disappointed. 

Thank you, Covenant Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it.

Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas–#Review–4 stars

Devil in Spring::.jpg 850.jpg

An Enjoyable Historical Fiction by Lisa Kleypas, Devil in Spring–published 2/21/17

 

Lady Pandora Ravenel is pretty and of marriageable age, but has no interest in tying the knot. Why would she want to hand over to a man the business she’s worked years to establish, along with her independence? But, because she was caught in a compromising position with Lord St. Vincent, she was expected to do just that.

Gabriel Challon, Lord St. Vincent, has been an expert at avoiding marriage entrapment schemes until he came across Lady Pandora. She was in distress and Lord St. Vincent, couldn’t just leave her there. But, for or his act of kindness, he was going to be matched with the most unsuitable marriage partner possible. However, to his complete surprise, he found Lady Pandora’s spirited nature refreshing. Lord St. Vincent had never met another woman like her, probably because Lady Pandora was the complete opposite of the type of woman he should be marrying. But to his amazement, the more time he spent with her, the more besotted he became. Any woman would love to marry the devilishly handsome Lord, except, of course, Lady Pandora.

But can Lady Pandora give up her independence to Gabriel, trust him with her business and still save her family from scandal?

Devil In Spring is a well-written adult historical fiction romance, with witty dialogue, developed characters, and a captivating plot. A very enjoyable read.
