True of Heart

This book by Martha Keyes really surprised me in the best of ways. I was expecting just another blah kind of Regency story (don’t get me wrong, I often love these, but they are very similar and hardly ever surprise me), but this one was unique.

It’s a retelling of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night and was super riveting. I read it in one day (which I hardly ever do with Regency stories). This had everything I love in a romance—great characters with depth, twists and turns I didn’t see coming, and swoony romance (duh! Ha ha).

Making the Marquess

Here’s another fun Scottish highlands romance by Nichole Van.

This story features Lady Charlotte and Dr. Alex Whitaker in a forbidden romance that will have your heart aching. Alex learns that he is next in line for the marquess-ship of Charlotte’s father’s estate who has died. But her sister’s husband, a second son of a duke, has received management of the estate until the title can be sorted out. He wants it for his son, which would mean he keeps managing it as his son is only three years old.

It’s a messy situation, to say the least. The house of lords demands that Alex—who doesn’t want anything to do with the title—come look at his holdings before he makes a final decision. He wants nothing more than to wash his hands of the whole ugly business for the three days he must be there and then get back to Scotland and his medical practice.
