Book Review

The scandalous truth…
She’s the Count’s new mistress!
In this Matches Made in Scandal story Count Aleksei Derevenko hires governess Allison Galbraith for her skills as a herbalist, not as a mistress! But when rumours spread Allison is shocked by her wanton reaction to Aleksei. His inscrutable icy blue eyes promise white-hot nights of sin! She knows too well how fragile her reputation is, but will the price of their passion be worth paying?




This is book one in the Matches Made in Scandal.  The best way to describe this book is that its a romance with a hint of murder mystery, which for me was a brilliant and this book is a must read and comes highly recommended.

Alison has a kind heart and will help anyone, that is until she was ruined and she had to live in exile, but she also has a strong mind, and this shown throughout the book.  And its while she is living in her cottage, that The Procurrer arrives with a offer to work as a Governess for Count Aleksei Derevenko in St. Petersburg.

Oh Aleksei is just gorgeous, who I adored from first meeting him in the book.  And now that his brother and sister in law have recently died, he needs help with his nieces and nephew oh and their dog, who sounds utterly adorable.  But because the children's original governess has disappeared Aleksei feels somethings just don't add up.

What I also loved about the book was the way Marguerite describe St. Petersburg and the palace, I could see it in all its glory, which for me makes me part of the book.

I give this book a definite.



  






This book can be purchased from Amazon and all other retailers. 

The next book in this series is From Courtesan To Convenient Wife and on pre-order at Amazon and is released on 22nd March.

I received this ARC from the author in return for a honest review.

Book Review

Lord Jericho Black, the Marquis of Wessex, is not looking forward to the visit of his ward, Lady Jocelyn Forbes, to his Devonshire home.

Jocey is not actually Jericho’s ward but his father’s. But as his father lives permanently in Scotland, and is considered to be eccentric by polite members of Society and more than a little strange by the majority, Jericho has taken it upon himself to act as Jocey’s guardian in his father’s stead these past three years.

A bachelor of five and thirty, Jericho finds the role of guardian to a young lady difficult enough at the best of times, but finding himself charged with the unpleasant duty of proving or disproving whether Jocey is guilty of treason, is going to make this visit even more taxing than usual.

Jocey is looking forward to seeing and being with Lord Jericho Black again, the man she has secretly been in love with since he became her guardian when she reached the age of eighteen. She is no longer that gauche and awkward young girl, and she is determined Jericho will now see her as a desirable woman, and worthy of his attention. 

From the moment Jocey arrives in Devon, even more beautiful than Jericho remembers her to be, and possessed of the sophistication and confidence of a woman who knows her own mind, Jericho quickly realizes it is not irritation he now feels toward Jocey but desire. A desire he is finding it more and more difficult to resist.

When Jericho receives the shocking news of one close friend’s unexpected death, and the serious injury of another, it becomes imperative he learn the truth as quickly as possible, so as to avoid more blood being shed. 

Even if it requires Jericho make Jocey his prisoner and seduce the truth from her. 





So this is book 5, normally I go into great detail when I'm doing my reviews...but for this one I can't give too much away, because it would spoil the book.

This series has been a joy to read, and I'm always looking forward to the next book.  So in this book we meet Lord Jericho Black, the Marquis of Wessex, who with his friends formed the Sinners, and its now down to Jericho to find the spy.  And the name he has is his ward Jocey.

Jocey is one of those girls, that she wears her heart on her sleeve and she has had a crush on Jericho for quite awhile, and because she has been in London for her season and then onto France to visit her mother's relatives, its been some months since Jericho has seen her and when he does, he is amazed at her transformation.

Gone is gauche young girl and in her place is a beautiful woman, I mean what was Jericho expecting, that Jocey would stay a young girl.  And for both of them there is an instant attraction, but because Jericho has to find out if Jocey is the spy, things become complicated, and not just matters of the heart, but also from the Sinners.

As with all of Carole's books if you don't like explicit language and sexual content then these books are not for you.

For me this book is a 









This book is available to buy from Amazon and all other retailers.

The next book is Wicked Temptation (Regency Sinners 6) and is available for pre-order at Amazon and is released on 27th April.

Book Review

She's vowed to stay clear of men…
But can she resist the ton’s most notorious rake?
Alone in the dirt, her ankle in agony, the last person Molly Morgan wants to come to her rescue is the handsome yet infuriating Beau Russington. Molly does her utmost to avoid scandalous rakes like Russ, and his dangerous allure shakes up her quiet country life. But the sparks between them could be explosive if Molly only dares to surrender…




Normally in a review I would go into a lot of detail...but for this review if I did then they would be a lot of spoilers and I try not to do that.

This was a great book and comes highly recommended, if you have read Sarah's other books, then you will know what a treat it is.

Beau Russington for me isn't your typical rake, he's a rake with a heart, and that shows more and more when he is with Molly.  Unfortunately to start with Molly isn't that impressed with Beau.  For you see Molly has had a bad experience with men and from that she opened Prospect House, with the help of some friends, while I was reading for me this is Molly's greatest achievement and she loves what she does at the house.

From the moment we meet Beau, I liked him and I was forever telling Molly that she was wrong about Beau.  And I was also telling her to trust her heart, which for Molly to give her heart to another man is far more dangerous.

This book is released on 22nd February and can be purchased from Amazon and all retailers.

I give this book a

Book Review

From convenient fiancé…
To an inconvenient attraction!
When hotel heiress Audrey Girard’s safe, convenient wedding to a business partner is called off she’s left to contend with her ex-fiancé’s brother—wild, brooding chef Shane Murphy. And there’s certainly nothing safe about Audrey’s attraction to Shane—every day they work together is even more dangerously tempting! Could there be a Las Vegas wedding on the cards after all?



There is one thing I must warn you about this book, please don't read the book on a empty stomach, because I can guarantee that you will be wanting food by the end.  The food in the book sounded amazing and what also helped was that the chef was hot.

So as you can gather I loved this book, and I so want to visit the restaurant.  Shane isn't your regular chef, when Shane is the kitchen he wears jeans rock band t'shirts and biker boots and he also listens to rock music very loudly, its very rare for Shane to wear the chef whites and even when he does wear them I can imagine him to be extremely handsome.  But Shane is also carrying some guilt which stems from his wife's death.

I've told you a little of Shane.  Now I'm going to share a little bit about Audrey.  Audrey is a woman after my own heart she has a very sweet tooth and because of this Shane keeps calling her sugar, much to her annoyance.  What I did find with Audrey is that she has barrier between herself and other people, so she doesn't let get to close, this is explained in the book.

What I did like about Shane and Audrey is that they understood each other, which for Shane takes a little longer.  There is some funny parts in the book, especially when Audrey is talking to Shane but isn't Shane (you'll find out 😉).

I will give this book 5/5 stars.  I can also recommend it, but don't blame me if you get hungry, I did warn you.

This book is available to buy from Amazon and all other retailers from 22nd February.

Book Review

Welcome to the Surrey Sexual Freedom Society - where unconventional and uninhibited ladies and gentlemen discuss all matters erotic... 

After a thoroughly unpleasant first marriage, Madeline, Lady Upcott, reveled in a widow’s freedoms—both in the bedchamber and out. Yet society cares not for an independent woman, and her family has decided she must wed again to replenish the coffers. It seems her dream of happiness with a dominant man who fulfills her wickedest fantasies, is destined never to be. 
History scholar Lord Ethan Dare has returned from Egypt to find his new inheritance on the brink of ruin, and his relatives at war with England’s notorious Wicked Widow. They want her banished, but the woman he meets is a warm, witty, and lushly sensual bluestocking who is more than willing to offer a younger and inexperienced man some very special instruction. One night turns into a scorching hot affair for two kindred souls, but can fledgling love survive the crushing burdens of duty?

Please note this book contains explicit language and sexual content.






Yes this book was very hot, it literally  steamed up my reading glasses.  So please if you are not a fan of these types of books, then please don't read it.

And for people that love this type of book, you will not be disappointed.  Madeline is the most wonderful widow, she is warm, witty and very sensual and she also a bluestocking, she is also a member of SSFS, were they talk everything erotic.

In some family's you have a relative that isn't very nice.  Well in Madeline's case she has her own family and her late husband's family to contend with, her family want her to remarry just so she can keep them in the luxury they think they deserve, and her late husbands family have never liked Madeline.

But that all changes when Ethan Dare, arrives to take over his inheritance, not only is it nearly ruined, but from the moment he meets Madeline, there is a very strong sexual connection.  And when Ethan tells Madeline that he's not experienced, well lets just say, the book becomes very very hot. 

I read this book in one sitting and I wasn't disappointed and I cannot wait for the next book.

I will give the book 5/5 stars.  The book is available to buy from 7th Feb from Amazon and all retailers.

Book Review and Blog Tour



Today is the last day on A Warriner To Tempt Her

I would like to thank Rachel Random Resources and Virginia Heath, for my place on the tour.

Below is all the information you need, plus my review and a fabulous giveaway.


A shy innocent
She's wary of all men.
In this The Wild Warriners story, shy Lady Isabella Beaumont is perfectly happy to stay in the background and let her sister get all the attention from handsome suitors following a shocking incident. However working with Dr Joseph Warriner to help the sick and needy pushes her closer to a man than she’s ever been before. Is this a man worth trusting with her deepest of desires…?





Just when I thought I couldn't love another Warriner brother, bang Virginia brings me Joe, I mean the cover alone is gorgeous.  I love Joe as much as I loved Jack and Jamie.


 Well what can I say about this fabulous book, other than I can highly recommend it.  For me this book had it all, you laughed, you cried and you definitely cheered.

My heart went out to Bella, who has a secret and believe me when I say it takes a lot for her to confide in Joe, and when she does, oh my do we see a different Bella.

When you read this book you will not be disappointed, as I already said I loved it.

I give this 5/5 stars, if I could give more stars I would, this book deserves a lot more stars.  Virginia thank you so much for writing this wonderful book.

I received this ARC from the author, in return for a honest review.

This book is on pre-order and is available to buy on 25th Jan at Amazon and all other retailers.




Author Bio




When Virginia Heath was a little girl it took her ages to fall asleep, so she made up stories in her head to help pass the time while she was staring at the ceiling. As she got older, the stories became more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace the insomnia and start writing them down. Fortunately, the lovely people at Harlequin took pity on her and decided to publish her romances, but it still takes her forever to fall asleep.

Is your book part of a series / standalone? It is part of The Wild Warriners series but can be read as a standalone
Are there any possible trigger warnings that bloggers/readers need to be aware of? I don’t think so. It tackles mental health issues in the 19th century and there is a smallpox epidemic.

Book Review

Single mum, Phoebe Jackson is stunned to find her new neighbour is hot, new doc Oliver Grey – locum consultant for Greenways Hospice where she is a specialist palliative care nurse. At their first encounter sparks fly, but soon there are sparks of a different sort. However, Oliver makes it clear from the outset that he’s not a settling down kind of guy. Having a family is not for him. Phoebe must decide if a summer romance is enough - or can true love change his mind?





Well what can I say about this book apart from its brilliant, and that's from me who isn't keen on medical romances.

Kathryn is a new author to me, what set this book apart from all the other medical books is that, it was more about the romance and the medical parts were more secondary, and for me it made me reading the book more enjoyable.

Kathryn made me feel that I could relate to the characters and understand the medical bits, I loved the humour between the characters, and I want to be friends with both of them.

I will give this book 5/5 stars and I can recommend this book.

This book is available from Amazon and all other retailers.
