I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting Maisey Yates novel: Smooth Talking Cowboy.  Smooth Talking Cowboy is a standalone novel and is book one in the Gold Valley Novel series.

This is my first introduction to the work of Maisey Yates and it sizzled in all the right places.  Don’t most girls dream of living on a ranch with their own cowboy?  Well, Olivia Logan had dreamed of this picture for the last few years.  She’d got the perfect candidate for the role but after a year of dating Bennett Dodge Olivia was no closer to receiving the illusive marriage proposal so she ended the relationship.  However, Olivia wants to prove to Bennett what he’s missing and hatches up a plan with smooth talking cowboy, Luke Hollister to win back Bennett’s heart.

Luke Hollister is your Instagram image of a cowboy with his ruggedly handsome good looks and a cheeky, charming persona to go with it.  Luke was happy to oblige Olivia with her madcap plan.  Olivia Logan was known as the good girl of the town, the girl that was serious and reliable and Luke thought it would be fun to play his part in her plan.

However, the plan was not fool-proof and Olivia and Luke were soon to realise they had a chemistry between themselves, one that had been lain dormant for nine years.  One that as soon as it started fizzing was difficult to keep under control.

Olivia and Luke had known each other for quite a while but they had both felt like the other was out of bounds or untouchable and they had to witness them getting close and personal to others.  All through these years the pent up feelings the pair had successfully kept hidden have now been let loose and control is soon forgotten.

Can Olivia and Luke trust their self-control and the new fire in their hearts?  Will hurt from their past that held the key to their fear of love deny them of any future happiness?

A story of a sweet love that soon simmered with desire.

Could this infamous rake finally have found his countess?
Part of The Sinful Sinclairs.
When Lucas, Lord Sinclair, receives a mysterious summons from a Miss Olivia Silverdale he’s skeptical about whether he can help her. But Olivia, although eccentric, is in earnest about her quest to restore her late godfather’s reputation. Lucas’s curiosity is piqued, and not just by Olivia’s intelligent eyes and lithe form. A new challenge quickly presents itself: keeping Miss Silverdale at arm’s length!

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Lara Temple’s latest novel: The Earl’s Irresistible Challenge.

Ohh this was such a treat of a read, a new series from one of the current greats in Regency Romance, Lara Temple.  The Earl’s Irresistible Challenge is book one in The Sinful Sinclair’s series and is the story of Lord Lucas Sinclair, the eldest of the Sinclair children.

The Sinclair’s have a well known reputation amongst the ‘ton’, however it’s a reputation that was earned by their grandfather but now all Sinclair’s have been tarnished with the same brush.  When Lucas was summoned by a young woman from Yorkshire of details of a wrong doing he felt exasperated and thought the plight by Miss Olivia Silverdale was nothing but a ‘wild-goose chase’.  But his interest peaked slightly by this rather unusual young lady who was very sure of her story and was hellbent on finding the truth.

I felt the story held a little dark atmosphere during the opening chapters with the mystery unfolding and the quest to unearth the truth.  What Olivia and Lucas hadn’t expected was the building chemistry between them.  However, they were both very wary of their feelings and Lucas was almost aghast to his ‘mawkish’ feelings.

Lara Temple has created a great Regency romp filled with atmosphere from the intensity of the challenge and also the emotional wars bubbling on the surface.  Olivia and Lucas were a great crime busting duo.  I loved it all and felt myself swooning for this Sinclair.  I’m so looking forward to more from The Sinful Sinclair’s.

I particularly enjoyed this quote from the novel:

“The girl was as mistrustful as he, and just as scared of feeling.  She would not love easily, but when she did …”

About the Author

the earls - profile picLara Temple writes strong, sexy regency romances about complex individuals who give no quarter but do so with plenty of passion. After moving around the world for her career as a financial analyst and business consultant she returned to her childhood love of making up stories, and was surprised to discover that other people don’t mind reading them.

She lives with her husband and two children who are very good about her taking over the kitchen table for her writing (so she can look out over the garden and dream while Oscar the dog keeps her feet warm by sitting on them as she works).

The Earl’s Irresistible Challenge (out December 2018) is the first in her Sinful Sinclair series. In May 2019 Unlaced by the Highland Duke, part of a four book series with three other Harlequin Mills & Boon authors will be released.

The Uncompromising Lord Flint
Imprisoned by her past- Set free by her enemy!
Charged with high treason, Lady Jessamine Fane is under the watchful eye of icily calm Lord Peter Flint. It’s a task this spy won’t be swayed from, no matter how alluring his prisoner! Only it’s not long before Flint realises that tenacious Jess hides a lifetime of pain. With so much at stake, can he afford to take a chance on their powerful attraction?

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogblitz celebrating and promoting the launch of Virginia Heath’s latest novel:  The Uncompromising Lord Flint.

Mon dieu, soyez toujours mon coeur qui bat!

Oh wow, what an explosive ending to a great read. Yet again author Virginia Heath has treated her readers to a rollercoaster of a ride with a dramatic, sexy, thrilling and utterly romantic regency romp.

The Uncompromising Lord Flint is book two in the King’s Elite series and as I mentioned in my review for book one in the series; The Mysterious Lord Millcroft, the King’s Elite are very like a 19th century MI5 and each of the ‘Invisibles’ are reminiscent to James Bond. However, no special gadgets from Q for these men but bravery, cunning, calm individuals with highly intelligent strategic qualities.

Lord Flint’s latest mission is to safely escort a prisoner from France to London awaiting the trial for treason and the indirect involvement of murder. Lady Jessimina (Jess) Fane was a very stubborn young woman refusing to divulge any information regarding the smuggling ring and she was prepared to face her punishment. However, the journey from France to London would be thwart with danger as the smugglers would be close on their tail to try and kidnap Jess to return her to France.

Lord Flint is normally unflappable but Jess has stirred emotions in him that he thought he was immune to. Fighting with his head and his heart on whether to believe Jess’s innocence the road to London was to be met with many challenges culminating in a battle that brought danger to his own family.

Virginia Heath’s writing style is effortless and she immerses the readers to a different time zone with etiquette and society, rakes and rascals. I love the banter she creates with her leading lady and gentleman which brings charm and fun to the storyline. I adored this story; it was dangerous, seductive and the book was unputdownable. Virginia Heath has given me a thirst for Regency Romance.

About the Author

virginia heathWhen Virginia Heath was a little girl it took her ages to fall asleep, so she made up stories in her head to help pass the time while she was staring at the ceiling. As she got older, the stories became more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace the insomnia and start writing them down. Despite that, it still takes her forever to fall asleep.

I am so pleased to be involved in the Publication Day Push celebrating and promoting the launch of Jenni Fletcher’s latest historical romance: The Warrior’s Bride Prize.

Happy Publication Day Jenni Fletcher.

This is my first introduction to the work of Jenni Fletcher and it is also my first introduction to a historical romance set in the Roman era and oh my what a story!  I greedily devoured this historical romance.  The story was set in AD197 and at a time when North Britannia was on the verge of a rebellion.

From the start of the story I was captivated by the rugged landscape and especially the area surrounding Hadrian’s Wall.  Livia Valeria was on her way to an arranged marriage to pay off a debt owed to her scrupulous half-brother.  With a fear of the unknown and anxious for not just her future but that of her daughter’s Livia felt like she had no choice but to obey her brother.  Travelling the arduous journey to her new home with many pent-up feelings but she is soon put at ease when a Legion of roman soldiers greet her close to her destination.  When Livia first sets eyes on the Centurion that has been given the task to escort her she feels a sudden kinship to him.

Livia is hiding secrets from her heritage, not that she is ashamed of it but that she is afraid of others reactions and prejudices.

Marius Varro was a Centurion determined to climb the ranks.  He wasn’t happy to be assigned the task to escort the bride-to-be but upon meeting Livia he was completely taken aback.  He expected a typical Roman lady that was used to privileges but Livia was nothing like this.  He was utterly entranced by her and was shocked by his feelings so strongly felt for someone he’d just met. From the short time he spent in the final legs of the journey Marius knew that he’d do anything to protect this woman and within hours he had no choice but to honour this.  The more that Marius saw of Livia with her sparkling green eyes and her mass of wild red hair he was lost.  Lost to a life he no longer could control.

A couple thrust together to protect from an uncertain future.   A couple that were fighting their own heritages.  A couple that were also fighting against the building chemistry between them.

Jenni Fletcher’s words flowed perfectly and I was swept away with this new adventure for Livia with the uncertainty of an arranged marriage and her future.  The author has thrown so much in this novel, I didn’t expect to fall for a story set in the Roman era but I was totally entranced by this new hero and heroine partnership.  There was lots of action with the threat of the rebellion which made for an intense story.  Jenni Fletcher also wove in a gorgeous heated romance that was so beautifully told.  It was dramatic, addictive, heart warming and filled with an intense desire.  Loved it!

About the Author

jenni fletcherJenni Fletcher was born on the north coast of Scotland and now lives in Yorkshire, where she writes Medieval, Roman and Victorian romance novels.
She studied English at Cambridge University before doing an MA on Women and Literature in English and a PhD on Victorian & Edwardian literature at Hull. After realising that she was better at writing than teaching, she worked in a number of administrative jobs whilst trying to finish her first book, which was rejected. Thinking there must have been some mistake, she then wrote another, which was fortunately accepted by Harlequin Mills & Boon.
Her favourite Jane Austen novel is Persuasion and her favourite Brontë is Anne. If she had to choose a romantic hero it would be John Thornton, but maybe that’s just because she’s Northern.

Be calm, she thought.
Be gracious. Be twenty-two.
Lady Olivia Fanton is eager to prove she’s no longer a child. However, just as she thinks she’s found a suitable match in the suave Mr Manning, charismatic Captain Jem Ford walks back into her life, bringing with him all the embarrassment of her infatuation four years before! She’s determined to appear mature, distant, friendly. But does she dare hope he’ll notice her as the lady she’s become?

The Makings of a Lady Full Tour Banner

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Catherine Tinley’s latest Regency Romance; The Makings of a Lady.  The Makings of a Lady is book three in The Chadcombe Marriages series.  The books can be read as a standalone as you are introduced to a new member of the siblings living at Chadcombe House, however as a Regency Romance lover I’d fully recommend reading all the books in the series.  The books in the trilogy are:

  • Waltzing with the Earl
  • The Captain’s Disgraced Lady
  • The Makings of a Lady

Once again Catherine Tinley has taken me to a time and a place when romance was an art, it was a beautiful dance of etiquette of society.  I love this era it is so different from the life of today and historical romance gives you a glimpse to time gone by.

Lady Olivia Fanton was eighteen when she first met Jem Ford who had come to Chadcombe to recover from injuries in battle.  However, their friendship was short-lived when Jem returned back to duty.  It’s now four year’s on and Lady Olivia is no longer the young girl, she is now a beautiful young woman trying to find her place.  She feels like her family still treat her as the young girl from years ago and Olivia is trying to prove otherwise.  She has spent four years getting over the loss of her friendship with Jem Ford but when she hears of his return memories of her heartache return.  To add to her confused heart a new suitor, George Manning, with his rather charming, handsome features and smooth prose has come to her attention.  Olivia doesn’t know which way to let her heart sway; she has a history of friendship with Jem but will he remember her as the young girl that helped him and have forgotten all about her or does she let her heart seek another?

Olivia’s life is put in danger and the circumstances surrounding it are most unusual.  Jem sets out to unravel the mystery.

I loved this story by Catherine Tinley it had plenty of warmth, romance but it was also filled with drama, danger and mystery.  I was captivated by Olivia, Jem and her close circle of family and friends.  Courageous, dramatic and oh so very romantic.

The Mysterious Lord Millcroft

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

I am so pleased to be involved in the Publication Day Blogblitz for Virginia Heath’s new novel The Mysterious Lord Millcroft, which is book one in a new series called The King’s Elite.

What an explosive start to a new Regency Romance series, I was completely hooked by Lord Millcroft and I feel like I’ve just sat through a 19th century James Bond-esque blockbuster movie.

Virginia Heath’s hero and heroine characters are always so well crafted and she has a great way with words infusing brilliant banter between the male and female lead characters.  I was instantly drawn to Sebastian’s character with his dark brooding looks and almost shockingly shy composure when faced with the effortlessly beautiful Lady Clarissa.  A man trained to blend in with every situation Sebastian was struggling to talk to this stunning specimen of the female kind.  Sebastian was lost; lost for words and he’d lost his heart when he first laid eyes on her.  However, Lady Clarissa had her heart set on marrying a Duke.

Sebastian Leatham had a secret life one that he’d finely tuned and he was one of the best in his profession.  He was a spy, working for King and country as one of The King’s Elite.  His latest mission was to blend in to Society’s most aristocratic peers and seek out information on liquor smuggling.  Sebastian hated Society and all that it stood for; it was pompous and full of stupid traditions.  Sebastian hadn’t envisaged meeting Lady Clarissa again and was shocked to meet up with her whilst he was undercover.  In order to keep up his persona Sebastian had to entrust Lady Clarissa with confidences that were a matter of state security.

Sebastian’s mission was in full swing with the help of Lady Clarissa.  Was Lady Clarissa going to be a hindrance or help to the cause?

This was such an exciting tale full of drama with dashing undercover agents infiltrating with the rich and infamous Ladies, Lords, Dukes and Earls.  Danger was always lurking behind shadows and the close working relationship with Sebastian and Clarissa brought it’s own danger with the onslaught of desire that was heating up as the drama unfolded.

A dynamic duo in a gorgeous, dramatic, engaging Regency romance.

‘It’s not my habit to seduce impoverished widows…’
The Duke of Greyland lost his heart – and a princely sum – to a charming, beautiful and destitute widow who, after one passionate night, vanished without a trace. Cassandra Blair grew up on the city streets, picking pockets to survive. Greyland was a rich mark – to be fleeced and forgotten – only she’d never forgotten him.
Years later, chance brings them together again, in a London gaming hell. Grayland is desperate to have her… never suspecting everything about his lover was a lie. But finding herself in dire financial straits, at risk of losing everything, Cassandra has no choice but to beg the man she betrayed for help.
The proud Duke will assist her under one condition: she doesn’t leave his sight until her debts are paid! But can the real Cassandra – the smart, streetwise survivor – steal his heart all over again?

FromDuke_BlogTour

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Eva Leigh’s latest book; From Duke Till Dawn.  From Duke Till Dawn is also the first instalment in Eva Leigh’s new regency romance book series titled Scandalous Ladies of London.

I am so pleased to share with you all today an extract from the book:

London, England 1817

A woman laughed, and Alexander Lewis, Duke of Greyland felt the sound like a gunshot to his chest.

It was a very pleasant laugh, low and musical rather than shrill and forced, yet it sounded like The Lost Queen’s laugh. Alex could not resist the urge to glance over his shoulder as he left the Eagle chophouse. He’d fancifully taken to calling her The Lost Queen, though she was most assuredly a mortal woman. Had she somehow appeared on a busy London street at dusk? The last time he’d seen her had been two years ago, in the spa town of Cheltenham, in his bed, asleep and naked.

The owner of the laugh turned out to be a completely different woman— brunette rather than blonde, petite and round rather than lithe and willowy. She caught Alex staring and raised her eyebrows. He bowed gravely in response, then continued toward the curb.

Night came on in indigo waves, but the shops spilled golden light in radiant patches onto the street. The hardworking citizens of London continued to toil as the upper echelons began their evening revelries. Crowds thronged the sidewalk, while wagons, carriages, and people on horseback crammed the streets. A handful of pedestrians recognized Alex and politely curtsied or tipped their hats, murmuring, “Good evening, Your Grace.” Though he was in no mood for politeness, responsibility and virtue were his constant companions— had been his whole life— and so rather than snapping, “Go to the devil, damn you!” he merely nodded in greeting.

He’d done his duty. He’d been seen in public, rather than disappearing into the cavernous chambers of his Mayfair mansion, where he could lick his wounds in peace.

The trouble with being a duke was that he always had to do his duty. “You are the pinnacle of British Society,” his father had often said to him. “The world looks to you for guidance. So you must lead by example. Be their True North.”

This evening, before dining, Alex had taken a very conspicuous turn up and down Bond Street, making certain that he was seen by many consequential— and loose- lipped— figures in the ton. Word would soon spread that the Duke of Greyland was not holed up, sulking in seclusion. His honor as one of Society’s bulwarks would not be felled by something as insignificant as his failed marriage suit to Lady Emmeline Birks. The Dukes of Greyland had stood strong against Roundheads, Jacobites, and countless other threats against Britain. One girl barely out of the schoolroom could hardly damage Alex’s ducal armor.

But that armor had been dented by The Lost Queen. Far deeper than he would have expected.

Standing on the curb, he signaled for his carriage, which pulled out of the mews. He tugged on his spotless gloves as he waited and adjusted the brim of his black beaver hat to make certain it sat properly on his head. “Always maintain a faultless appearance,” his father had reminded him again and again. “The slightest bit of disorder in your dress can lead to rampant speculation about the stability of your affairs. This, we cannot tolerate. The nation demands nothing less than perfection.”

Alex’s father had been dead for ten years, but that didn’t keep the serious, sober man’s voice from his mind. It was part of him now— his role as one of the most powerful men in England and the responsibilities that role carried with it. Not once did he ever let frivolities distract him from his duties.

Except for one time . . .

I’m looking forward to reading this regency romance during the summer.
