    My Review:

     

    I have to start by saying, I loved Sebastian. He had depths that only Rebecca could see and she was willing to help him reach those depths and remedy his anger, pain, and hostility. The story starts off on a fun mistaken identity and it allows the stage to be set for an understanding that was quick and real for them both. I loved the way that Deborah hale wrote this book. With the tenderness and the harshness that was called for at the moment, yet, never leaving who the characters were in their hearts. I was provided this copy in exchange for an honest and impartial review.

    I would love to continue reading the series that this novella was contained. I just know it will be a good series. Totally a five star read for me.


    My Recommendation:

     

    This is a clean regency romance that is just delightful. The story has a realistic feel, the main characters are just so enjoyable. I loved them all. I could see where the actions of others caused them to behave badly. So sad when that happens and causes a huge conundrum. However, conundrums make good story plots.

    New Release Book Review: Despised & Desired by Bree Wolf

    Despised & Desired: The Marquess' Passionate Wife (Love's Second Chance, #3)Despised & Desired: The Marquess’ Passionate Wife by Bree Wolf
    My rating: 5 of 5 stars

    Despised and Desired: The Marquess’ Passionate Wife is another wonderful heartfelt book by Bree Wolf. This is the third of the Love’s Second Chance Series and I have loved each of them.

    They have had beautifully written characters that pulled at my heart in a special way. This writer brings the characters alive in the most beautiful way. Her characters are not flawless beauties of the first water. The characters in this story are beautiful in their deepest reaches inside.

    Elsbeth Munford may very well have been a beauty except there was a terrible accident that scarred her and took away the man she was set to marry. She was aware that the accident had taken away the veil of beauty that most men were looking for in a bride. She accepted her fate without anger and remorse. She looked for joy in her life and she often found it even when others expected her to have only pain and regrets.

    When Frederick a guilt ridden, wounded soldier returns home from the war. His life is turned upside down by the recent death of his father and then the unexpected title being dropped onto his head. He accepts his fate and tries to face it with courage. He as a second son was not expected to inherit, so he was not quite prepared and schooled for the title as his brother was. His mother complicates the matter by stating his new goal is to marry and produce an heir. He has no emotion about this at all, it is just another duty he must see to.

    Frederick is so cut off from his own emotions that he will not allow anyone into his heart. He can not because he questions his own self worth. He is a man broken inside. When Elsbeth ( Ellie) and Frederick meet again, they have much work to do if they are going to have a life together.

    Once again, I loved this book. I love the little light of hope that Ellie offers Rick. I love the women that have supporting roles in this story. They all have a wonderful gift to share with each other. It was a lovely read. Each time she releases a book it ends up as a favorite. Her characters are so free spirited and unusual.

    The book releases June 22, 2016 and it is a historical romance that if you love regency romances, you will want to have on your bookshelf.

    Bree Wolf brings two people together like no one else. She has released many historical romances and they are always a fun and unique read. Bree has been a published author for several years and the books keep getting better and better. Get to know more about her at her Amazon Author’s Page

    Despised and Desired is available in both paperback and as a Kindle Edition through Amazon

    Book Review: Compromising Miss Tisdale by Jessica Jefferson

    Compromising Miss TisdaleCompromising Miss Tisdale by Jessica Jefferson
    My rating: 5 of 5 stars

    Compromising Miss Tisdale is a story with some fun and somewhat tainted characters. Duncan has become the Earl of Bristol. It is not a position he ever expected and not a position he felt ready to settle down and thrive with. He is quite the rake around London and had been sent away due to his misdeeds several years before.

    Now Duncan was back in London and his Uncle was expecting him to indeed settle down. After the sudden and unexpected death of his brother he has inherited the title. He found himself drawn to a woman of utter structure and propriety. He fought hard against what he might feel. His friend who is also the brother of Ambrosia’s best friend assures the Earl, that she was the woman he should compromise in order to get her dowery.

    The Tisdale family is fun loving and close knit. Ambrosia is the eldest daughter and has never accepted any proposal that have come her way. She does not know what she is waiting for, but she knows that she will recognize it when it comes along.

    When she finds a shirtless man in the library, then she begins to wonder if she has found what she had been missing.

    It is a fun and nice book by Jessica Jefferson. I am ready to read the other books in the series, just to get more from the Tisdale family. Tamsin and Lillian’s stories are available in the Regency Bloom Series.

    This book as well as the others in the series are available on Kindle and KindleUnlimited through Amazon

    Book Review: Ridiculous by D. L. Carter

    RidiculousRidiculous by D.L. Carter
    My rating: 5 of 5 stars

    Very fun and entertaining

    The premise of this book as great. The characters have such great personalities and the story is filled with the most amazing humor. Millicent Boarder as a man was perfectly portrayed. She played at being a man like I would play being a man, over the top and foppish.

    Millicent when dressed and behaving as Mr. Antony North (her recently deceased cousin) was a wonderful friend to the Duke and his sister. Even when members of the ton tried to make trouble for Mr. North it was handled by the Duke and his sister with spirit and humor.

    There are just so many funny scenes in this books. North had quite a way with the storytelling. A way of drawing in people and making them comfortable, even when he knows it is dangerous to be too visible. He just can’t help it.

    Then there was the uncomfortable draw that the Duke felt for his dear friend, Mr. North. It is a great unique book with unusual events taking place in the regency period. I have listed this book as a favorite. It is just too good to drop out of favor. Great book to read when you want humor and sweet unexpected love.

    I want to read more from this author. If D.L.Carter’s other books have as much heart and comedy I know I will enjoy then.

    This wonderful book is available in paperback and Kindle by clicking the link below.

    Book Review: The Harlow Hoyden by Lynn Messina

    The Harlow Hoyden: A Regency Romance (Love Takes Root Book 1)The Harlow Hoyden: A Regency Romance by Lynn Messina
    My rating: 5 of 5 stars

    I have been seeing the Harlow Hoyden pop up on various emails suggesting books to add to the To Be Read pile and I finally grabbed a copy yesterday. First let me say, I love the title. I love the word hoyden. It is one of the most fun words in the English language. It draws pictures that make me laugh. Secondly this girl was hilarious as I hoped she would be. Not pratfall hilarious, but so staunch in her beliefs that she can not see the forest for the trees funny.

    She starts the book in a totally unseemly manner stealing from a house where she is a guest. Not just stealing as in silverware or money, but something rare and beloved. She does so in front of an audience who deems to help her so that she does it right.

    Emma Harlow from that point on amuses and confounds some of the most important people in the ton. There are unknown factors sprinkled all through the book which gives it an intensity that I did not expect from the title. So I was pleasantly surprised that there was so much intrigue and mystery involved.

    This is a regency book and I was ready for that after weeks of detective books and thrillers. It was the perfect choice for a late night read that kept me reading until after eight am.

    I think you would enjoy it if you like Dukes, Wonderful forward thinking Dukes. The Duke of Trent pushed all my buttons for a leading man. He was a willing and sometimes an unwilling participant in all manner of escapades along with the Harlow Hoyden. I was so glad I picked this up yesterday. I believe I will be re-reading it on a regular basis.
