Reforming Lord Neil

reforming Lord neill

I’ve loved this series by Sally Britton. This latest book features Lord Neil, who has been a real scoundrel side character in the past books. He is cut off and cast out by his father, the Marquess, to be taught a lesson. As he wanders about, coming to the conclusion that he has not a friend in the world to turn to for relief or housing, he runs into widower Teresa and her mom and daughter, who put him up for the night in their barn.

When he realizes they are in dire need of manly help to do tasks they know nothing about, he offers to do those chores in exchange for lodging in the barn for the foreseeable future, when hopefully his father will relent and let him back into his inheritance.

In the process, the two come to know each other and the “magic” happens. It’s a romance, right?

This was a fun one. I absolutely love-love redemption stories, and this was a super good one, since the character comes sooooo far. I was intrigued to read Neil’s story, since I kind of hated him in earlier books. But his story is touching. A well done conclusion to this series. I highly recommend you grab a copy to read today (it’s free if you have Kindle Unlimited).

Happy reading.

Fun Regency Romances

flameHere’s a new author I’ve just found and read a few of her books. M.A. Nichols. The first one in her Regency set is my favorite. Flame and Ember. But I’ve really enjoyed her whole set (I’m almost done with it. I have one more book to read). The characters all interrelate, but each book could be read stand-alone if needed, and you’d be fine.

So, without further adieu, I will get on with the review of her first three books.

Flame and Ember – Book 1

A most inconvenient marriage of convenience.

This book was amazing! It’s a Regency marriage of convenience story that evolves into love and a happy ending, of course (it’s romance!). But oh what a lovely heart-tugging ride to get there. Seriously, I couldn’t put this book down. It captivated me completely. Mina (Wilhelmina) is a 30ish-aged spinster who longs to live on her own and not be under her brother’s thumb (and his annoying bride who has usurped her authority in the house, although she’s 11 years younger). Continue reading

A Lady’s Maid

The publisher is hosting a rafflecopter giveaway, so check that out at the end of the post. And without further ado…let me tell you about this story.

But when her efforts and a trip to Lady Halloway’s charitable orphanage culminate in her own abduction, Molly’s eyes are opened to the horrifying crimes transpiring in the city’s slums. Despite the risks, she broadens her mission and is drawn ever closer to the peril all around them. Continue reading

A Proper Scandal

APS_BlogBig smile as I write this post! 🙂 I love when a book surprises me. When I received this newest book in the mail–A Proper Scandal–I had already judged it (not necessarily by its cover–because that’s utterly gorgeous, but by its genre). I like Regency, but at times, the stories can be stuffy and sort of boring romances by today’s standards. But this one made my eyes blink more than normal, my jaw gape at times, and just overall shocked me, in the best of ways. Here’s the summary. Continue reading

A Guarded Heart

A Guarded Heart BannerI love when a book grabs hold of my heart real tight…and doesn’t let go. A Guarded heart by Heidi Kimball did that for me. Here’s the teaser:

My Brother’s Bride
