is as great as what she feels for her husband Nash takes it slow and eventually wins her heartGood characters a well developed story line especially for a novella and it felt complete I really liked

husband suddenly returns interrupting the wedding Having pretended to be dead for 2 years to keep his wife safe from the man who wanted him dead he s been sailing the high seas as a pirate Whereas the premise of this novella was good I think it would have played out better had it been given time and length to make it reconcile better It just seemed to be missing too much to make it work wellHER SCANDALOUS WISH by Collette CameronA marriage offer obligated by duty an acceptance compelled by desperationPhilomena Pomfrett is resigned to spinsterhood but to ease her dying brother s fretting she reluctantly agrees to attend a London Season with one purpose to acuire a husband Stumbling upon her hiding in a secluded garden arbor during a ball Bradford Viscount Kingsley doesn t recognize his

title Meanwhile Philomena who didn t die in the fire which claimed her parents believes Bradford left her because of her burn injuries Not comfortable in social gatherings she hides in the garden rather than partake in the ball she s attending Not recognizing her Bradford encounters her and the rest is the HEA when her brother discovers them kissing although it doesn t go too smoothlyI like the idea of this story but felt it was rushed This is a case where a truly sweet romance novella needs to be extended into a full length novelMILADY AND HER SPY by Jillian ChantelA lady a spy a traitor a battle of willsRaised in the country after her mother s death with only the company of three unruly brothers Lady Augusta Covington is proficient at fencing riding and playing cards than being prim and proper Myles Cuthbert a spy in His Majesty s service on a mission to find and expose a traitor crosses paths with Lady Augusta when she rides to the aid of her brother believing him to be injured With the assignment at risk Cuthbert agrees to accept the assistance of the troublesome lady eager for intrigueAs they move forward his sense of obligation to her and the danger involved stir his soulThis is a good regency spy story Augusta is rather a tomboy having grown up with three brothers When she hears her brother may be in trouble she rushes to the rescue and stumbles into a mission to catch a spy Myles her brother s commander isn t too happy about Augusta s involvement but has no choice but to allow her assistance Yet another story with such great potential which I would love to see fulfilling its complexities and allowing growth in the characters in a full length novelKISSED BY A SCOTTISH ROGUE by Samantha GraceHis Mother Insists He Needs a WifeFergus McTaggart

it s a battle of wills arguments at every turn and unruly confrontations but when they call a truce for the sake of the sisters they come to think of each other in a way that neither expects This one

But his seductive smile and enticing kisses awaken a passion that threatens her common sense No stranger to scandal Leybourne is determined to save his family from ruin whatever the cost even marrying an heiress he doesn t love But an unexpected desire and need to protect threatens his plans Will past heartaches and a devastating wager destroy their future or will true love s kiss triumphStill unmarried as she faces her third season Aveline fears the attentions of fortune hunters but knows she must marry or face her uncle choosing for her She does her best to stay away from those least desirable as husbands especially Lord Leybourne who needs desperately to marry an heiress if he is to save his family from ruin When both make lists of suitable candidates they soon discover they are probably best suited for each other They set about trying to make things work despite interfering friends and gossiping ton I liked this story the characters were strong and the plot very plausible I d like to read from Alanna She s a new author for me and I m looking forward to reading from herTEMPTED BY A ROGUE by Lauren SmithGemma never planned on falling in love with her childhood sweetheart s best friend Jasper when he returns home but she can t resist the naval officer s brooding charmGemma plans to marry James her childhood sweetheart With every letter written between them while he s been off at sea their love has grown Now they will be reunited with his return to England But the man whose words she d fallen in love with isn t JamesJasper a gentleman rogue of the first order is trapped Talked into a scheme by his friend he pretended to be James for eleven years while writing to Gemma He s promised James he d break it off But when he returns home his secret will come out and he ll lose the one woman he can t live withoutSometimes when I start reading a story I can sense right away that the plot is trying to be far complicated than it needs to be This is one of those When it becomes obvious too fast that a simple conversation could sort out the trouble it s difficult for me to keep reading but I do always in the hope that things will get excitingJames has been away at sea for eleven years during which time he and Gemma write to each other diligently every month onlyit isn t James writing to Gemma but instead Jasper James s best friend Gemma plans to marry James as soon as he returns for she s fallen even further in love with him through his letters Jasper has come to love Gemma but now feels trapped because he can t tell Gemma the truth I can t help but think when I read a story like thisthe truth is the simplest solution and it will set you free It was okay but it could ve been much better with its Cyrano de Bergerac startTHE REDEMPTION OF JULIAN PRICE by Victoria VaneShe gave him a chance to bury his past but the price would be his heartBurdened by the pastOrphaned at a young age and left to run wild at eighteen Julian Price joins the fight against Napoleon in the hope of attaining honor Devastated when his best friend Thomas is killed in battle Julian returns home burdened with guilt only to find his wastrel uncle has suandered his inheritanceDesperate to live her own life Facing a future of drudgery caring for her aging mother and raising her brother s children Henrietta Houghton believes her chance at a real life died with Thomas the only man who ever wanted her But Henrietta is still full of dreams When her wealthy aunt offers her a gift of ten thousand pounds Henrietta finally has the chance to choose her own destinyEverything has a priceWith a fortune at her command Henrietta offers Julian a marriage of convenience unaware that she really offers Julian a means of salvation not just his fortune but his very soulA longtime fan of Victoria Vane s historical romances this one was a good friends to lovers story but not necessarily her best I m so used to her rich characters that I felt Julian and Henrietta fell kind of flat Perhaps if the story had been longer their development could have been greater It had its moments though and Henrietta s naughty aunt made it all worth readingJulian returns from war to discover his uncle has lost his fortune and he is destitute He plans to sell everything in hopes of clearing his debt and then return to Portugal to work as a mercenary since his only skill seems to be in killing Henrietta feels lost She s unmarried whereas all her siblings are but she has no desire to spend her life as an unpaid nanny to her nieces and nephews When her scandalously naughty great aunt endows her with a large dowry she decides she has the means to help her childhood friend Julian and give herself the gift of relative freedom She proposes to him and they plan a marriage of convenienceof course we all know how that will go This story truly had great potential and although I would love to have seen it expanded further I enjoyed reading itThis one is well worth the spending 99 onI highly recommend it eARC provided by authors in exchange for an honest and unscripted review
