Suffering the Scot

scotYEA! Nichole Van has a new book out–Suffering the Scot--and it was gold…like all her others. Don’t you love the cover? Leave a comment below for a chance to win an ebook of this delicious story! It’s soooo good! I want everyone to have the chance to read it.

SUMMARY

Lady Jane Everard cannot abide the new Earl of Hadley. The unmannered Scot is a menace to genteel ladies everywhere, what with his booming laugh and swishing kilt and endless supply of ‘ochs’ and ‘ayes.’ Jane wishes Lord Hadley would behave as an earl should and adhere to English rules of polite conduct.

Andrew Langston, the new Earl of Hadley, knows that the English aristocracy think poorly of his lowly Scottish upbringing. This is hardly new. History is littered with the English assuming the worst about Scotland. By living up to their lowest expectations, he is simply fulfilling his civic duty as a Scotsman. Continue reading

Beneath an Italian Sky

beneathToday’s feature book was a literary feast for my romance heart.  Stacy Henrie wrote an excellent story that I couldn’t put down once I started it. I’m so excited to share this one with you. Here’s the blurb:

Summary

1908–American heiress Clare Herschel made what she hoped was a love match when she married the handsome, witty Emmett Markham, the Earl of Linwood. A little over a year into her marriage, though, Clare finds herself wintering in Sicily—alone. She is sure the mild climate is the answer to avoiding another miscarriage and Emmett’s apparent indifference, so she’s determined to remain in Italy as long as possible. The last person she expects to show up at the villa is her husband, especially when Emmett confesses he’s there to convince her to return to England. Continue reading

Relatively Normal

IMG-1457Another author suggested this book on her Facebook page. I was intrigued enough to give it a chance, and I’m glad I did. Relatively Normal by Whitney Dineen was a hilarious piece of chick lit that made me–a more quiet, reserved type of reader–laugh aloud many times. Here’s the blurb.

SUMMARY

Catriona Masterton’s fiancé, Ethan, is Normal.

He plans trips six months in advance and arrives at the airport a minimum of three hours early. He purchases life insurance, luggage insurance, and always opts for the extended warranty. He’s responsible, reliable, and would make any woman a wonderful life partner.

In other words, he’s the exact opposite of the Masterton clan. Continue reading

Finding Jack

jackHere’s another book review and a FREEBIE to celebrate April and the arrival of warmer weather. I loved this newest book by Melanie Jacobson. It was one of my favorites I’ve read this year. Here’s the blurb.

SUMMARY

Can their online flirtation become something real?

When smart, practical Emily finds herself in the crosshairs of an Internet prankster, her orderly world goes topsy-turvy. Instead of getting mad at the handsome stranger behind the joke, she finds herself drawn to him. But Jack Dobson, though hilarious and thoughtful, has a lot of secrets. Despite her growing feelings for her new and unexpected long-distance friend, his biggest secret of all might be the one that breaks the spell they’ve been weaving around each other. Continue reading

Her App, A Match, & the Billionaire

bookMy friend, Maria, has a new book out. Her App, A Match, and the Billionaire. It’s part of the Billionaire Bachelor Cove stand-alone series, all set in the Seattle area. I’m not a big fan of the billionaire themed books (I feel they’re way overdone), but this one captured my attention (and my heart) and I couldn’t put it down. The Billionaire status seemed more believable to me because the character was part of a TV series (so it was almost more celebrity status than filthy rich guy). It worked, and I ended up liking the story a lot. Here’s the blurb.

Summary

She is looking for an investor, not a connection. 
He is looking to invest his money, not his heart. 

It is a truth universally accepted that anyone who’s single must be looking for their perfect match, right? Continue reading
