Captured by Her Enemy Knight by Nicole Locke

Captured By Her Enemy Knight - Locke-Captured-M&B

Falling for the man

Cressida Howe, the Archer, is a well-tuned weapon. But she’s also a woman captivated by a man—Eldric of Hawskmoor, the warrior knight her father ordered her to kill. Instead, for years, Cressida has simply watched him… Now she’s been captured by her formidable enemy, and her well-ordered world comes crashing down, for Eldric is even more compelling up close. Cressida curses her traitorous heart—this assassin has fallen for her target!


Another fabulous book by an amazing author! 
Eldric has been hunting the Archer since he killed 3 of his friends in battle but there are a few things he doesn’t know; the most important being that the Archer is actually a very highly trained woman called Cressida!
Cressida has been watching Eldric for years and when her father orders her to kill him she does everything in her power to keep him safe. I liked Cressida as a character, everything she did was motivated by what she had been taught and trained as a child and throughout her life. She was a strong and independent woman who doesn’t conform to the traditional characters of the time and instead stands out
All Eldric wanted was to catch the Archer but when he discovers it’s Cressida he can’t being himself to take her to the Tower of London to be tried and executed as he agreed when he accepted the mission from the king. Eldric is also a strong character and the only person who may be a match to Cressida! He came across as a character who knows what he wants but who was willing to change his mind if the circumstances required which I liked and admired in him 
This book was great fun to read and with so much drama throughout which kept me in my toes and not expecting what would come next, something I love! 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy stories with characters who don’t conform to the traditional normal and who are both strong characters with a clash of wills as well as twists you might not see coming

A Duke Will Never Do by Darcy Burke


This book caught my attention and pulled me in, having read the rest of the books in the series I really wanted to see Jane and Anthony’s story
Jane finds and injured man on her doorstep and takes him in. It seems he is Anthony, Lord Colton, notorious throughout London society
I liked Jane as a character, she was willing to see past Anthony’s facade and see the person beneath it. She is loyal and would also do anything to protect those she cares about including Anthony
Anthony as a character is harder to warm to but once I realised that his facade of drinking and putting on a brave face is because he is hiding a painful secret which is overwhelming him. Learning more about him made him more endearing and by the end I did quite like him
This is another fantastic book with the ladies from the Spitfire Society starring and showing that not every lady has to conform and that sometimes being bad can be so good! 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a historical romance with drama but also spice, this is not your traditional historical romance, but with characters who you will love

A Royal Kiss And Tell by Julia London


Every prince has his secrets. And she’s determined to unravel his…

Every dashing young man in London’s ton is vying for Lady Caroline Hawke’s hand—except one. The handsome, delectable, rogue, Prince Leopold of Alucia can’t quite remember who Caroline is and the insult is not to be tolerated. So Caroline does what any clever, resourceful lady of means would do to make sure a prince remembers her: sees that amusingly risqué morsels about Leo’s reputation are printed in a ladies’ gossip gazette…all the while secretly setting her cap for the rakish royal.

Someone has been painting Leo as a blackguard, but who? Socially, it could ruin him. More important, it jeopardises his investigation into a contemptible scheme that reaches the highest levels of government in London. Now Leo needs Lady Caroline’s help to regain access to society. But this charming prince is about to discover that enlisting the deceptively sweet and sexy Lady Caroline might just cost him his heart, his soul and both their reputations…


When I saw that I could have the chance to read and be on the blog tour for this book I leapt at the opportunity. I had so loved The Princess Plan and couldn’t wait to read Leopolds story and I wasn’t disappointed, it was as fabulous as I imagined! 
Caroline was in part the typical English lady going to balls and engagements but she is also outspoken, clever and determined as well as a dressmaker. I loved Caroline as a character, she doesn’t fit into the traditional box and instead is a heroine to fall in love with and adore! She jumps off the page and even when she did something that annoyed me she then very quickly redeemed herself especially when her reasoning was understood
Leopold was used to people adoring him just because he’s a prince but Caroline isn’t what he expects. She doesn’t always follow etiquette, she doesn’t always treat him with respect and she intrigues him. I struggled to bond with Leo initially but that was mostly because I didn’t understand his character properly and that some of his demeanour is a mask but once I realised I warmed to him and was on his side throughout 
This book has unexpected dramatic turns, surprises and challenged me in ways I wasn’t expecting. I did have some issues with geography but that’s only because I know the area and the distances which seemed to be a bit flexible at times! I imagine this is for dramatic input and it didn’t take anything away from the story and I suspect that no one else would notice! 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy books with non traditional characters who fight against what is expected of them and whose determination will make you love them along with enough twists, turns and drama to keep you on your toes

Bench Player by Julianna Keyes


Connor was put in prison for insider trading but now he’s out and he wants to continue in the career he had before he went inside, as a Major League Baseball player. He needs to change and reform, win his way back into peoples hearts and the person to do that is the head of PR at his old team, Allison 
I liked Allison as a character, she had 2 sides, her scary work personality and a softer side that loves her grandfather and would do anything for him, even being unable to sell his home after she inherited it when we went into a nursing home. This all made Allison feel very real and human and you could feel her dedication and determination run through everything she did 
Connor had only one goal, getting fit enough to be invited to spring training and that is his only focus. He needs Allison to help him understand that he needs to win people back over to get his dream. Because he is so obsessed with getting back I struggled a bit more with him as a character. 
I think that because I know nothing about baseball that I didn’t understand everything that Connor did which coloured my opinion a bit and made it harder for me to feel emotionally involved and able to connect with the characters 
I would recommend this book to those who have a basic knowledge of baseball and who enjoy a romance with twists, trouble and secrets

The Mysterious Miss Fairchild by Sarah Mallory


This book caught my attention and had some fabulous twists and turns! 
Natalya has been left in the care of her aunt and uncle to continue her education and prepare her for society. She is much more educated than many young ladies but she doesn’t know who her parent are, and will only be able to find out upon reaching her 21st birthday
I did like Natalya, she’s intelligent and fun as a character and she leapt of the page. She is well written and her achievements had me surprised at least some of the time!
Tristan came to Bath to check out Natalya as his nephew wanted to marry her but upon meeting her he is intrigued and isn’t sure he wants his nephew to be the one marrying her! I did like Tristan as a character, he is the kind of hero that I dream of. Protective, but also able to change his views and not forcing his ideas into others but asserting them none the less
I loved the twists and turns in this book, they kept me guessing and I so didn’t expect the ending! But at the same time it feels possible and makes me wonder if others had the same fate… 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a historical romance with a smart heroine, a hero to fall in love with and a mystery to keep you guessing!

Holding out for a Hero by T. E Kessler

Louise front cover Final (3)

We humans have always outnumbered Jelvias—that was until falling birth rates became a reality.

And now the Jelvia: bigger, stronger, disease and injury resistant—and venomous—looks set to topple us from world domination.

Some say it’s too late to acknowledge the invisible technology that distorts the truth about the Jelvian timeline. And others live in oblivion knowing—or not wanting to know—that there is no scientific proof sustaining that Jelvias evolved alongside us on our planet; they don’t question why there is no photography, ancient books, or old Jelvian fossils, or even why they aren’t any old Jelvias.

They definitely don’t recognise the danger we are in.

And journalist, Macy Shaw, is one of those people.

When she was twelve years old, her mother was murdered, and subconsciously ever since, Macy’s been searching for a hero. But the hero she found was a Jelvia. Undeterred, she used her connections to go after the biggest story of her life.

Narcifer saved a woman by merely being a Jelvia—his presence causing terror and making the assailants flee. And it amused him when his “heroism” created a national stir, so when a pretty little red-head asked to interview him for a story, Narcifer felt compelled to grant it to her, especially when she gave all the signals that she wanted more than a story.

However, on the night Narcifer inadvertently became a hero, he had been tracking a scientist with orders to kill, and strangely no matter where Narcifer’s line of investigation took him, his search always brought him back to the red-headed journalist, Macy Shaw.

This book is the first in the JELVIA: NOT HUMAN series.
Each book will slowly reveal the true identity of the Jelvia.

JELVIA: NOT HUMAN books can be read as a standalone novel, although you’ll gain a better understanding of the Jelvian world by reading in order.

Based on the story Eden by Louise Wise.


This book is amazing, fantastic and had me gripped right from the beginning
Jelvia’s are a part human species who live amongst people but people are afraid of them, a media campaign supported by the government has made people think that they are killer monsters who don’t deserve to be around humans. It made me instantly think of history and how people who are different have been persecuted and judged throughout history, even without first understanding them or who they are 
Macy however doesn’t believe the propaganda and thinks that the Jelvia’s are misunderstood and she wants to show the world that there isn’t anything to be scared of. When she meets Narcifer her beliefs are solidified and she finds herself falling for him
Narcifer is harder to get to know but he is determined and strong and he would do anything to protect Macy. He wasn’t supposed to fall for her but he couldn’t stop himself, she was perfect
Macy and Narcifer shouldn’t work but they are unable to keep apart and their bond is what pulled me in but the twists and turns kept me hooked! I have already had a look to see if I can get the next one so i can binge read the weekend away! 
I would recommend this book to so many people but especially those who enjoy an unconventional but hot and sexy romance with twists and turns that will keep you on your toes

A Hidden Heir to Redeem Him by Dani Collins


This book was a story about characters understanding themselves and developing as people 

Valentino (Val) and Kiara spent a night together 3 years ago and Kiara ended up pregnant. Now following the death of his father they are about to be thrown back together again 
Kiara is an artist, it’s what first brought them together, her sketching Val, and that art is a huge part of her personality comes through really strongly. That she struggles when she can’t paint and create is so strong and something I’m sure many artists feel. The only thing that distracted her before Val came back into her life was her daughter, Aurelia 
Val is a first born but illegitimate son, but whose father always compared him to his legitimate brother. Thanks to his upbringing he has a distorted view of people and their motivations; love isn’t something he believes in. He had however never forgotten his night with Kiara and it is through her and Aurelia that he learns that things may be different 
Character development is a huge part of this book and their internal dilemmas sometimes are so loud that parts of the story get drowned out. The themes of art, Aurelia and sex seem to be the key to understanding the characters and their story
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a book with huge character development, and a self assured hero who gets a shock when he meets his daughter!
