With This Christmas Ring, is a delightful, historical fiction, holiday romance.
Merry was uptight about entering the home of Alex Ponsonby, the Viscount Wrotham. Merry never thought that she’d have to face the man she jilted ever again. Her closest friend Charlotte; however, asked Merry, with her dying breath, to find her newborn baby’s father. Unfortunately, the father of this infant was William Ponsonby, her jilted fiancee’s cousin. Merry could see no way around it. She’d have to ask Alex where his cousin William could be located. Merry would carry out her friend’s dying request no matter what it cost her, even though; she’d have to confront Alex Ponsonby, the man she still loved but left behind.

Alex could never understand why Merry left him. He had a strong hunch, though, that his grandmother, the dowager, had something to do with it. So when Merry showed up unexpectedly at his doorstep, Alex was determined to find out just why she had fled. And, then, he would do his best to woo her back into his arms. Alex’s cousin William was with the dowager for the Christmas holiday. So Alex planned to confront his sharp-tongued grandmother, to make sure that she wouldn’t hurt Merry anymore than she already had. And, if his grandmother could not accept Merry then drastic measures would have to be taken. Alex was not about to lose the love of his life, for the second time, that was for sure.

With This Christmas Ring, is an enjoyable and touching story about love, forgiveness, and second chances. Thank you, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

Second Chance Girl by Susan Mallery–Book Review–

Don’t Miss This Captivating Love Story, Filled With Witty Dialogue & Sweet Romance!

Release Date–Sept. 26, 2017

 

Second Chance Girl is a delightful and entertaining romance.
The Duke of Somerbrooke was concerned over valuables that were missing from his estate. And the only packages that were leaving his home were addressed to an American, Violet Lund, in his grandmother’s handwriting. Ulrich Sherwood was livid. Violet Lund was a conniving thief who was manipulating his grandmother. The Duke would see justice done, even if that meant, that he had to travel thousands of miles to do so.

Violet Lund, couldn’t believe when the man of her dreams, Ulrich Sherwood, the Duke of Somerbrooke, walked into her shop. The last time she saw him, she was all frizzy hair and braces; and he had made her feel beautiful. He was a gorgeous man; except, for the fiery blue daggers that were aimed right at her. What could she possibly have done?

Carol Lund loved her work at the Animal Preserve. She also had a hidden crush on her next door neighbor, Mathias Mitchell. They were only friends though. She wasn’t anything special, and he was a well-known artist. Besides, Mathias didn’t do relationships; he was a no commitment, one-night romance type of guy. And, although, he could never be hers, she sometimes imagined that he was.

Mathias secretly adored his giraffe loving next door neighbor, Carol Lund. If he were to trust any woman, it would be her. But, Mathias learned from a young age that love often led to betrayal and pain. So Mathias would admire Carol from the sidelines. Little did he know, though, that events in his life were going to drive him right into Carol’s arms.

Second Chance Girl is a well-written light read, filled with witty dialogue and sweet romance. Thank you, Harlequin and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
