The Duke’s Bluestocking by Josie Bonham

dukes-bluestocking-FINAL

Temptation like never before for the fashion-loving bluestocking when she meets an unconventional duke.

Headstrong Grace Bamford is determined to remain unwed and keep her independence. Which means interesting, marriageable men are best avoided. Her classical studies and philanthropy are more important to her than a husband and a lot safer.

Angus Medley’s life is turned upside down when he unexpectedly inherits a dukedom. He is wrenched from the career he loves as an Edinburgh advocate to take up responsibility for the Duchy of Evesham and the people relying on it for their livelihoods.

Grace rescues Angus from a knife-wielding attacker outside the London orphanage she helps to run. He dismisses the attack as a failed robbery but Grace suspects foul play. Is someone from Angus’s past trying to kill him? Grace offers to help him investigate, concerned for his safety, even though it means spending time with the most attractive man she has ever met.

Marriage is the last thing on Angus’s mind as he grapples with his new responsibilities and his hidden enemy, until he falls in love with Grace. Will Grace find the courage to follow her heart?

Georgette Heyer meets Mary Balogh in this romantic adventure.

About Josie Bonham

Josie lives in the English midlands, surrounded by towns full of history such as Evesham, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwick and Worcester. Which is perhaps why her favourite reads are historical. Out of all the periods to choose from the Regency Era stirs her imagination the most. The true Regency lasted from 1811 until 1820 but dates as wide as 1789 to 1837 have been included in the extended Regency period. For Josie the true flavour of this period emerges after the iniquitous hair powder tax of 1795, unsurprisingly, scuppered the fashion for hair powder almost overnight.

Josie has always dabbled in stories but it took the combined efforts of her sister and eldest niece to set her on the path to writing novels. Her Regency romances, with a dash of adventure and intrigue, are the result.

The Lost Laird from Her Past by Jeanine Englert

The Lost Laird fom Her Past Mills and Boon FINAL COVER

A second chance…With her first love!

Lady Brenna Stewart is grateful to be saved from her burning carriage—only her rescuer is Laird Garrick MacLean, the man she once loved and lost! He seems determined to protect her from the unknown enemy pursuing her across the Scottish Highlands. But, bitterly hurt by his past betrayal, she needs answers. Why did he abandon her? And how can she keep her heart safe now, when the connection between them is as strong as ever…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Totally gripping 
Garrick finds Brenna after a carriage accident and once they realise that someone is trying to kill her they make plans to get to her sisters house for safety but Garrick and Brenna were once close to being engaged and he disappeared without a trace… 
I loved Brenna, she is strong and determined, even though she doesn’t always feel that way, she is smart and was trying to take control of her life, even if things don’t always quite go to plan! Garrick left to go to rescue his sister but she is killed and he feels responsible so he kept away from his home and family, believing that he wasn’t worthy of them, and especially not worthy of Brenna. He is stubborn and resourceful, he is determined to keep Brenna safe but she makes him look inside himself and question his beliefs 
This book is full of danger and drama, set at a time when the English King was trying to take over the Scottish Highlands, Brenna and Garrick find themselves in the middle of a plot that could change their world but they must work together to find out what is going on and to keep Brenna safe, even if their feelings for each other aren’t quite as in the past as they had hoped 
I loved this book from the very first page, we were first introduced to Brenna and Garrick as part of her sister Moira’s story and I’m so glad that I was able to read their story, and become entwined in their lives. The danger at times felt so real that I had to remind myself that I was at home and safe, but that just shows how pulled in I was. I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a romance full of drama and danger that will catch your attention and at times leave you gasping for breath with characters who you will adore

A Defiant Maiden’s Knight by Melissa Oliver

A Defiant Maiden's Knight Cover

A knight’s protection…That she doesn’t want…or need?

Joan Lovent may be losing her sight but she refuses to lose her independence too. So when Sir Warin de Talmont tells her it’s too perilous to be out alone in the city, she doesn’t pay him any heed. But with threats surrounding them, she begins to value his protection and helps with his dangerous work in return. If only the powerful connection between them wasn’t so impossible to ignore!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Totally brilliant and amazing
Warin is one of the Knights of Fortitude, tasked with protecting Henry III but his friend and fellow knight Thomas has also asked him to keep an eye on and protect his sister Joan whilst he is away from London 
I loved Joan as a character, she has an eye condition that is worsening and will one day make her blind but she is still determined to lead a relatively normal life and doesn’t let her condition stop her from doing anything she wants to. She is smart and protective of those she cares about and won’t let someone telling her that she can’t do something stop her which made me love her even more as a character. Warin doesn’t want to have to look after Joan and definitely doesn’t want her involved in the investigation of a plot against the King but she won’t take no for an answer and he soon learns just how valuable she can be. Warin is haunted by the death of his first wife but that doesn’t stop Joan getting under his skin and I loved seeing this big, strong, brave knight coming under her spell
Warin and Joan’s story caught me from the very first chapter and reminded me that anything can be possible, you may just have to do things for yourself or fight for what you believe in. They are both characters who are determined to get their own way but those sparks just made me love them more and I can’t wait for the next book in the series to find out more about the investigation Warin and his fellow knights are doing, the intrigue, drama and danger of it pulled me in and now has me wondering about what is happening and if the knights can stop the plot in time 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a story with characters who you will love right from the start, a mystery and a story of personal change and development that will have you hooked right from the start

They Had Eyes of Silver by S E Davis

png_20220322_140502_0000

#THEOSNovel 

 

A secret lineage. A family cursed. A forbidden love that can’t be denied.

Veterinarian Reina Kirke is exhausted. So, when her best friend suggests a European vacation, she doesn’t hesitate. A much-needed break and a chance to investigate her mysterious family tree sound perfect. Too bad she’s in no way prepared for what she finds. The fairytale town in Belgium hides family secrets grounded in the supernatural. Legends of werewolves and witches surround her, and a taboo love affair threatens to pull her into a danger she might not be able to handle.

What seems like a chance encounter with Blaise Woodward, a brooding hunk with his own secrets, sets up a sequence of events that could unravel both of their families as they realize their deep connection to each other is generations old. But only one thing is certain.

Their lives will never be the same…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Fabulous

Reina has travelled to Belgium with her best friend Alek to try and find out more about her ancestors and whilst she is there she encounters Blaise but he is keeping a huge secret from Reina that could cause a lot of problems if its discovered by the wrong people
Blaise and his family are a form of werewolves, known by them a Wulfin, who have been bound by an ancient curse that Reina’s family had something to do with
There are so many characters in this book who I adored, not just Reina and Blaise and I think that drew me in even more, I became invested in them, their stories and their lives. Reina however is totally fabulous, she is a skilled  martial artist, with exceptional speed, can read Latin and is way more accepting of things than I think I would be. Blaise is affected by his past and his family bond and that came through so strongly, he is smart and determined, and his mind can work out how to get around certain obstacles, which I loved! 
I found this book a bit odd at times but it caught my attention very early on and I was totally hooked, Reina’s family history is a lot more complicated that expected and to be honest, I’m not totally sure that all my questions were answered but that only makes me want to read the next book in the series to find out more
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a romance full of action and drama that will make you question what you think you know and which made me wonder and dream of wolves and magic

The Viking She Would Have Married by Lucy Morris

The Viking She Would Have Married 9780008919818

In close quarters… With the Viking she’d loved and lost

A Shieldmaiden Sisters story—with her family fallen on hard times, Valda’s forced to join the crew on Halfdan Ulfsson’s merchant ship as he sets sail on the treacherous silk route. But this handsome jarl’s son is the man she’d planned to wed, until his bitter betrayal. Knowing she can never trust him, she must focus on saving her sisters…and not the intense connection that still burns between them!

Passion erupts when these bold, spirited Vikings are reunited!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Gripping 
Valda is a Viking Shieldmaiden, a woman who can fight, but her family have fallen on hard times and she needs to earn enough silver so they can get land for a farm. The trader who offers her a place on his ship is her ex Halfdan who broke her heart… 
I loved both Valda and Halfdan. I previously met Valda in one of Ms Morris’ precious books and I’m so glad I got to read her story, she is a strong, determined and independent woman who has been hurt by men in the past and this does affect her outlook but I still found myself loving her so quickly, she isn’t a traditional main character, but then again this isn’t a traditional historical romance! Halfdan is still haunted by his breakup with Valda but he is also determined to get his half brother released from his fathers capture (as an aside, we do get to find out Eriks story next and I can’t wait!) but anyways where was I, Halfdan is honourable and in command but he rules with respect and not fear which I found very important and made me warm to him so quickly, he quickly became a character who I loved and I was totally caught up in his and Valdas story 
Both of them are very caught up in their past relationship, it’s a big part of the story and it didn’t surprise me at all when the flames came alive rekindling their romance again. They are brilliant characters but they are surrounded by so many fabulous people, I can’t write about them all but know that without them, the story wouldn’t be as good as it is! 
I don’t have much experience of Viking dragon boats and the culture as it’s not a part of history I was taught, but this book seamlessly mixes history with the story so the reader is drawn in and is pulled away from their everyday life and into the story and I loved this
As I’m sure you can tell, I totally adored this book and I would recommend it to so many people but especially those who enjoy a romance full of drama with characters who you will adore!

The Viscount’s Lady Novelist by Alissa Baxter

The Viscount's Lady Novelist

Harriet Linfield is a lady novelist who has been disillusioned by love. She sets out to write more realistic tales about the emotion when she returns home to Linfield Court for the summer. Vowing to avoid any romantic entanglements along the way, she focuses instead on her writing and her plan to turn the estate she inherited from her uncle into a refuge for orphans.

Oliver, Viscount Wentford, is determined to restore his family fortunes. But his plans for the estate he inherited are in direct opposition to the wishes of Harriet, his new neighbour. Upon meeting her, Oliver is amused when, in response to his provocative comments, she informs him that she intends to make him the villain of her next book. But his amusement swiftly turns to dismay when circumstances align to show him in that exact light.

When an enemy comes back into Harriet’s life, she sees that love isn’t as clear-cut as the romantic tales she pens. But will the viscount manage to discard his villainous mantle to become Harriet’s real-life hero?

AMAZON | BARNES & NOBLE

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Full of drama
Harriet is an heiress who has dreams of becoming a novelist but her life gets turned upside down when she meets her brothers friend, Oliver
Oliver is a geologist but is also incredibly knowledgeable about most things in the natural world so is incredibly different to Harriet who doesn’t have the same interest in nature. She sees the world through the writers artistic eye instead of the scientific one that Oliver and most of her family do, but these differences make them characters who work so well together. They start to find more common ground as the story goes on and their friendship develops quite fast and before too long so do their feelings towards each other
This book also has its own amount of drama, Harriet was previously half engaged to a man who turned out to be nothing like what she thought and who shot her brother. However he is back and is somehow leaving letters that she sent him in her room during events making Harriet fear for her safety, if he can get letters in then he can also harm her and I will admit this part of the story had a huge twist that I wasn’t expecting which helped to pull me in even further
I loved reading Harriet and Oliver’s story, there are so many hurdles that they have to cross but I was routing for them from very early on and seeing how their relationship developed and they started to understand parts of themselves that they didn’t think were there have made them characters who I will go back to again and again
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a historical romance full of drama and emotion that will keep you on your toes and unable to stop reading

Praise

“A charming love story set in the English countryside that’s grounded in impeccable research.” ~ Kirkus Reviews

“Alissa Baxter’s writing is period perfect.” ~ Mimi Matthews, USA Today bestselling author of The Matrimonial Advertisement

“This book is gorgeous!” ~ Rachel Burton, author of The Tearoom on the Bay

“A truly traditional Regency romance, with lots of witty banter, very reminiscent of Georgette Heyer. Recommended for anyone who likes a completely clean traditional Regency, with strongly authentic writing, historical accuracy and a satisfying romance. Baxter’s writing is excellent, and her dialogue, manners and settings are true to the era.” ~ Mary Kingswood, author of traditional Regency romances

“While immersing the reader in the mores and life of the Regency era, Alissa Baxter manages to write strong, independent heroines whom modern-day women will cheer and root for. Plus the addition of little details that wrap around the plot and the characters make reading her books all the more special because you never know when you might land on a little Easter egg morsel in the beautiful and engaging prose. Historicals with heart and engaging characters that read real—that’s what you get in Ms Baxter’s books.” ~ Zee Monodee, USA Today bestselling author

About the Author

Alissa Baxter

Alissa Baxter was born in a small town in South Africa and grew up with her nose in a book on a poultry and cattle farm. At the age of eleven, she discovered her mother’s collection of Georgette Heyer novels. The first Heyer novel she ever read was Sylvester and she was hooked on Georgette Heyer after that. She read and reread her novels, and fell totally in love with the Regency period and Heyer’s grey-eyed heroes!

After university, where she majored in Political Science and French, she began writing her first Regency novel, before moving to England, which gave her further inspiration for her historical romances.

Alissa has lived in Durban and Cape Town but she eventually settled in Johannesburg where she lives with her husband and two sons. Alissa is the author of two chick-lit novels, Send and Receive and The Blog Affair, which have been re-released as The Truth About Series: The Truth about Clicking Send and Receive and The Truth About Cats and Bees.

Alissa’s Linfield Ladies Series features women in trend-setting roles in the Regency period who fall in love with men who embrace their trailblazing ways… at least eventually. The Viscount’s Lady Novelist is the second book in this series, following on from The Earl’s Lady Geologist.

The Earl She Should Never Desire by Lara Temple

The Earl Cover

This very handsome earl…Is the one man she cannot fall for…
War widow Lily Walsh has left her aristocratic family behind, but she can’t deny her younger sister’s request to come to London to meet her fiancé. Though not a love match, Lord Sherborne is kind, amusing and ideal for her sister on paper. But as Lily gets to know him, she’s finding him alarmingly attractive! And the forbidden look in the earl’s eye shows the feeling is mutual…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Absolutely amazing!! 
Marcus is engaged to Anne but it’s an arranged marriage and not a love match. When Anne’s sister Lily comes to London to support her sister before her wedding, her and Marcus find themselves drawn together
I totally loved this book from the very first page, Marcus and Lily are so obviously drawn together and seeing them both deny their feelings but still being drawn together made me love them even more. They are both independent people who have strong personalities which made them feel so real to me and I could so easily see their story being played out in my head 
Lily and Marcus must be some of my favourite characters and their story had me hooked, their relationship shouldn’t happen but being together is stronger than anything else
My kindle copy of this book is full of highlights of passages that I totally adored and which love reading again, something that always seems to happen whenever I read any of Ms Temple’s books! This story caught my attention and drew me in so deeply that I really didn’t want to say goodbye to Lily and Marcus and to be honest, I kind of don’t have to as I know I will be rereading their story many times again
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a forbidden romance with amazing characters who will stay with you long after the final page

Sebastian left Elmdale in Yorkshire when he was a teenager with his mother and brother, leaving behind Felicity but unbeknownst to him she was pregnant with their daughter Angel
Felicity has to be my favourite character in this book, she is brave and determined plus a brilliant mum to Angel. However she was hurt by Sebastian in the past and she is scared to make the same mistake again which I could totally understand and I think this brought me closer to her and helped me bond to her as a reader. Angel is totally amazing, she loves her mum and wants her to be happy and I loved the relationship between the two of them. It took me a bit longer to warm to Sebastian, whilst I could totally understand the reasons that he left and why he is back, I still struggled with his ‘money can solve anything’ attitude at times. There were times when it felt like he wanted to take over everything and that really annoyed me, Felicity and Angel are their own people and can make their own decisions. However as the story went on and as I discovered more about Sebastian, I started to like him more and more and by the end I was starting to love him as a character
This book also looks a lot at the power of the past and memories. It’s what drew them together, but also what tore them apart and seeing both Sebastian and Felicity try and work through that made them real to me but also tugged on my heartstrings and made me think of times when this has happened in the past
I loved reading Felicity and Sebastians story, leaning more about them as characters and Angel was totally amazing, she is the kind of daughter that any mother would love to have and seeing her develop and become accustomed to her father suddenly being in her life made her come alive to me
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a romance where the main characters come back together after a long time but still can’t deny what is between them, set in an amazing location which will catch your attention from the very start

About Rachael Stewart

Naughty Author Pic

Rachael Stewart adores conjuring up stories for the readers of Harlequin Mills & Boon and Deep Desires Press, with tales varying from the heartwarmingly romantic to the wildly erotic.

She’s been writing since she could put pen to paper as the stacks of scrawled on A4 sheets in her loft will attest to, and the lovingly bound short stories that her father would run off at work and proudly share out with his colleagues. Thinking it was a pipe dream to be published one day, she pursued a sensible career in business but she was really play-acting, achieving the appropriate degree and spending many years in the corporate world where she never truly belonged. Always happiest when she was sat at her laptop in the quiet hours tapping out a story or two. And so here she is, a published author, her full-time pleasure, a dream come true.

A Welsh lass at heart, she now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and three children, and if she’s not glued to her laptop, she’s wrapped up in them or enjoying the great outdoors seeking out inspiration.
