The Perfect Lady by Deborah Wilson



The Perfect Lady (Valiant Love) (A Regency Romance Book)The Perfect Lady (Valiant Love) by Deborah Wilson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is my first book by Deborah Wilson, and it is GREAT, loved it from beginning to end. Characters are Beatrix and Hero, you will fall in love with them as you read, and she does well on growing them throughout the book.

Beatrix is strong, knows what she wants and does everything she can to get it. Hero is honorable, comes from an honorable family and tries to keep that as he journies through.

If you have not read anything from this lady, start with this one, if you have then you know how good she really is. Get this book.

Review of Not Quite Christmas by Sharon Kleve




Not Quite ChristmasNot Quite Christmas by Sharon Kleve
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It's a sweet read and a wonderful story. I loved it from beginning to end. Adair and Easton's romance is steady and you get to go on the ride with them. It is a short story/novella, but it felt like it was more. You didn't feel like anything was left out of need. She kept me engaged and wanting more. Would recommend to everyone.

The False Mirror: A Women Sleuth Mystery Thriller by Dana V. Moison

The False Mirror: A Women Sleuth Mystery Thriller (Sharon Davis Chronicles Book 2)


The False Mirror The False Mirror by Dana V. Moison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is my first book from Sharon Davis Chronicles. Man, was it worth the read. Love the mystery, the intenseness of what's going to happen next. How she brings everything together. She brought to life the side characters as well as the main ones. I felt the emotions of the family and all the people involved.

She was able to solve two different investigations and you didn't feel confused at all. You knew what and where for each. She has a great plot, storyline and a well-done environment. You could feel yourself walking the streets of NY on the case with her.

The Girl From Scorpions Pass by Miri Furstenberg

The Girl From Scorpions Pass: Surviving the Massacre at Scorpions Pass Was Only the BeginningThe Girl From Scorpions Pass: Surviving the Massacre at Scorpions Pass Was Only the Beginning by Miri Furstenberg
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The story is about a girl and what she went through. Having to relive this to write this book... She has strength. Miri is an amazing person, and it is sad that she had the past she did.

When you read this book, you are walking in the shoes of Mari, you feel everything she does. I am surprised she was able to write this true story. It is amazing in every way, you feel her pain when her parents die. You feel her fear, and excitement, and trust issues. You want to keep reading and not stop but at the same time, you're surprised a person can go through all she had too and still be able to write about her lives journey from a child to adult.

Outlaw King by Julie Johnstone and GIVEAWAY

Outlaw King (Renegade Scots Book 1)Outlaw King by Julie Johnstone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WOW, this is an awesome book, the feel, the story, the excitement. Its all in their. Trust and loyalties are tested. Love and pain, from family who are evil and wicked.
When you start this book, you will not want to finish it. Julie keeps you glued to the pages. She brings history to life and makes you want to know more about whats to happen next.
Robert the Bruce and Elizabeth de Burgh, I loved them both. The characters were realistic, you could relate to what they were going through and wanted to be their with them on their journey.

About the BOOK:


Dark days have come to medieval Scotland, and fierce warrior Robert the Bruce would do anything to release his country from English rule—and not just because he’s the rightful heir to the Scottish throne. As the bloody war rages on, enemies on both sides of the fight surround him, and Robert must dance a dangerous line between truth and deception. One misstep could topple his nation and cost him his life, yet one woman tempts him—and threatens his mission—as no other ever has.

Elizabeth de Burgh longs for freedom in a time when women have none. So when she finds herself ordered by her ruthless father and her godfather, the King of England, to seduce the leader of the Scottish rebellion and reveal his secrets, she yearns to fight back against their cruel plot. But they threaten to kill her beloved cousin, leaving her no choice but to comply. As she grows close to Robert and the mask that hides the man who would be king is peeled away, she cannot imagine aiding in the destruction of the noble Scot bent on liberating his people.

Bound
by duty and honor but ensnared by passion, Robert and Elizabeth must determine if they are each other’s biggest threat or greatest source of strength. And moreover, they must decide how much they are willing to risk for the one thing neither ever imagined they’d find with the other—extraordinary, boundless love.


The book is now live at Amazon, ibooks, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Google Play. Here are the links for buying.

Wyrm's Warning Wyrm's Warning by Michael J. Allen

Wyrm's WarningWyrm's Warning by Michael J. Allen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a new to me author and I believe has me for life. Wyrm's Warning is the kind of book you want to end over and over again, and hope it never ends. If I could give it more stars than 5 I would.

I loved Tala, she grew up in such a short time, and found her voice.

The story is extremely well written, and the story line is awesome. I loved the journey and excitement of what was to come next. It felt like I was their with her, through her journey. It was true to time and how women were treated.

I received this book for free for a honest review. This review is my own and completely honest.

REVIEW Quest of a Warrior by Mary Morgan






Quest of a Warrior by Mary Morgan

Review:
To begin, I need to say after reading the Prologue, I got chills from one paragraph.
“Dare to find out what happened to one of the
greatest heroes of Fae and Human. Travel through these
pages and be a witness to the tale of a legendary Fenian
Warrior.”

That alone sent chills up my spine in anticipation of what is to come. The rest of the book was just as amazing as these words were. You were sent on a magical ride and witness to love, mystery, hardship, and old pasts coming back to haunt you.

Conn, was everything you want in a man, and Ivy was just perfect for him. This trial they had and endured, was one I loved to witness.


My only problem was stopping myself from reading the end first. I knew if I did I would spoil the whole book for myself. I loved this book and all its ups and downs. Reading this was a delight. I cannot wait till the next book and wish it was here now.

Cecelia Mecca The Thief’s Countess

Bio: Cecelia Mecca is the author of medieval romance and co-owner of iConnect, an influencer marketing agency. She loves in Northeast, Pennsylvania with her husband and two young children and launched her first historical romance this month.


Tell us about yourself

I am a curriculum specialist by day, influencer marketing agency co-owner by night, and romance author when most sane people are sleeping. It’s always busy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Tell us about your new book?

The Thief’s Countess which comes out March 1st is the first book in the Border Series. The prequel novella was released in February. Set in 13th century Northumbria along the Anglo-Scottish border, it tells the story of an English border reiver who is forced into a life of stealing after losing his home and inheritance. Sent to protect a wealthy countess, Sir Geoffrey immediately clashes, and is attracted to, Lady Sara. But with a betrothed coming to claim her hand in marriage, their budding relationship encounters more than a few obstacles.

When you write, does your real life spill over into your book at any time?

Of course! I think all writers bring elements of their life into their books. The heronie has a bit of me in her as most characters are modeled at least in part after people I know. It is much easier to tweak existing personalities than to create a character completely from my imagination since humans have more traits and idiosyncrasies than at first glance. On the other hand, most people I know aren’t running around with chainmail and swords, so a bit of invention is necessary.

Do you think about a book of yours, being made into a movie, or not when writing?

I do not. Historical romance is a tough sell in the movie industry, but that truly would be a dream come true...to see your own characters come alive. I can hardly imagine what that must be like.

When naming your characters, do you give any thought to the actual meaning?

I do. The name is extremely important to me, although sometimes the meaning takes a back seat to other considerations since as historical accuracy, other characters in the novel, and even how the name sounds with the hero/heroine. I had a perfect name for my current work in progress that I had to scrap when it rhymed with the hero’s name. It just did not flow.

What made you want to write and also what made you want to write the genre you are writing?

I’ve always loved both medieval times and the romance genre, so historical romance is a perfect fit. As an English major, I’d always dreamed of penning my own book one day, but unfortunately it took twenty years to turn that dream into a reality. Better late than never!

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

It would be hard to top the one who started it all for me, Johanna Lindsey.

Do you have to travel much concerning your books?

I am excited to head on a cruise around the British Isles this summer. I plan to take my iPhone, a notebook and healthy excitement for all things English and castles to combine the family vacation into a research one.

What was the hardest part of writing your book?

Writing was fine, publishing not so much. I thought once I had written “The End” it would be smooth sailing; boy was I wrong. I finished The Thief’s Countess in 2015 and am finally able to see it in print this month. But I’ve learned so much about the industry since I’ve started and I’m happy to say book two will only be a few months behind Thief’s Countess.

When you start writing your book, do your H/H ever talk to you?

In my head, yes! Luckily, I don’t talk back. But I do imagine what they say, how they say it and am constantly thinking about both until I feel like they are actually a part of my life.

Do you ever experience writer’s block?

Luckily writer’s block is rare for me. A bit of research normally sparks a story idea, and from there the outline typically flows. I’ve yet to struggle with what to write next, but I do not preclude the fact that it will likely happen someday.

Do you have any tips for our readers that might dream of writing?

If you want to write romance, join RWA and lurk on the forums. Read and listen to writing and publishing podcasts. Learn as much as you can. And of course, get that butt in your seat and write every day. Worry about editing it later. You can work with a finished manuscript but it’s impossible to do anything with a blank page. Join author groups on Facebook, attend writing conferences and immerse yourself deeply into the world of writing and publishing. Eventually, you will get there as long as you keep plugging away.



A thief turned reluctant protector… A countess who resents but can’t resist him…

The Reiver
 
Sir Geoffrey has dedicated his life to exacting revenge on the men who killed his parents and stole his birthright. The son of a baron, he has been reduced to stealing the resources he needs to reclaim his family legacy. Just when he’s on the verge of success, his uncle asks him to put his plans on hold to help protect a wealthy countess. It’s a distraction Geoffrey resents, even more so when he meets Lady Sara. The gorgeous, complicated and alluring lady is everything he’d want in a woman—and everything he can’t have.



The Countess
 
With her betrothed coming to claim her hand in marriage and a distant cousin intent on usurping her earldom, Lady Sara Caiser feels beset by controlling men including two lawless border reivers who serve as her protectors. Despite her misgivings, an undeniable attraction pulls her into Sir Geoffrey’s arms. The man is more dangerous than she believed, for he’s noble, caring and sinfully attractive. As the threats against her continue to mount, Sara must decide what’s more important—her duty or her heart.

My Lord Raven by Jan Scarbrough

My interview with the wonderful Jan Scarbrough

Tell us about yourself

I’ve been writing since a life-threatening illness inspired me to make my dreams come true. Before that I went to college to become an English teacher because I loved reading and writing. Five years in the classroom sent me on another path where I applied what I’d learned as a technical writer. Currently, I work for an insurance company managing policies and standards.
For fun other than writing romance, I take a horseback riding lesson once a week at an American Saddlebred show horse barn. It’s takes my mind off my day job and it’s a big thrill. I also take Zumba classes on weekends. My husband and I have two Pembroke Welsh corgis and between us ten grandchildren.
 

Tell us about your new book?

I started My Lord Raven a long time ago. I learned I could write medieval romance by writing flashback scenes in Tangled Memories. I’d always loved reading medieval romance since the days of the Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss. It was a natural for me to want to try my hand at it. Over time, and with many starts and stops, I wrote My Lord Raven.
 

When you write, does your real life spill over into your book at any time?

In My Lord Raven, my love of horses comes through in a few scenes on horseback. My contemporary books are more like my real life. I have a couple of series set in Kentucky, where I live. And of course, I always put one of my pets into what I write. Over the years several of my treasured dogs and cats have made appearances.
 

Do you think about a book of yours, being made into a movie, or not when writing?

No. I never think about it being a movie. I recently saw A Dog’s Purpose, the movie. Everyone said it would be sad and many people wouldn’t see it. I then read the ebook and found myself tearing up several times, something I didn’t do in the movie. I think you can get deeper into the characters by reading a novel.
 

When naming your characters, do you give any thought to the actual meaning?

Yes. Bran means Raven or Crow in Welsh. And Catrin is a Welsh name for Catherine. It’s amazing what you can find on the Internet.
 

What made you want to write and also what made you want to write the genre you are writing?

I loved reading and writing, and like I said earlier, when I almost died, I knew I had to try to fulfill my goal. Reading romance, I naturally wanted to write it.
 

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

Maddie James and I have had parallel careers. She encouraged me to submit a finished manuscript, and so I made my first sale. After she’d been away from writing for a few years, I helped her get back into it.
 

Do you have to travel much concerning your books?

I have been to England twice. I think the authors living there have a big advantage, being near the history and actual places. This summer my husband and I went to a dude ranch in Montana and saw the places I’d set a series of books—and of course, I’d found that information on the Internet.
 

What was the hardest part of writing your book?

Research, getting the time period as correct as you can make it.
 

When you start writing your book, do your H/H ever talk to you?

Yes. I can picture what they are doing and what they are saying in my head.
 

Do you ever experience writer’s block?

You’d think so, given the many years it took me to finish this book.
 

Do you have any tips for our readers that might dream of writing?

Finish the book. Find a good editor and don’t be afraid of criticism. Your words can always be improved.



 Summery

England, the Welsh Border Lands, 1283


To protect what little family she has left, Lady Catrin Fitzalan switches places with her cousin when King Edward orders the pious girl to wed his royal champion, a vicious knight called the King’s Raven. Rumors abound that this savage is responsible for the deaths of Lady Catrin’s father and brother. How can she allow her sweet cousin to wed a murderer?

Bran ap Madog, bastard son of a Welsh prince, has devoted his life to serving the English king. His badge is the raven, a creature that feeds off rotting spoils, just as Bran feeds off the spoils of war. Now he wants a reward for his service: a wealthy wife, and the land and power she can bring him.

But there’s another side to the rapacious black birds Bran has chosen for his badge. Social and family-oriented, ravens mate for life. Which gives them something Bran never had—a family, a sense of belonging, and a rightful place in the world. Bran has fought for everything he’s ever had. But his last battle, with his new wife, may cost him the one thing he isn’t prepared to lose: his heart.

Two of Scottish romance’s most loved authors have joined pens to write a thrilling new time travel series filled with passion, danger, and intrigue. These never-before-published novels will sweep you to Scotland’s Highland Heatheredge, where magic is real, time is relevant, and there is no escape from desire…
Men are disappearing in the Highland crofting village of Heatheredge. The authorities suspect foul play, but without signs of violence—or bodies—they can’t prove a thing.
World champion swordsman Cailean Ross is living the fantasy of a lifetime as the victor of Heatheredge’s medieval reenactment Gathering. But when the fantasy turns into reality, swordplay becomes a fight to the death and he finds himself among the ‘missing’ statistics.
Julianna Mackay flees a man she fears is an evil wizard and literally runs into handsome Cailean Ross. Cailean defends Lady Julianna from her attackers. Together, they set out in search of the key to a six-hundred-year-old curse that can only be broken in medieval Scotland.
When the veil of time is lifted, Cailean and Julianna find that love may not be enough to save them or those they hold dear.

They reached the building which housed Julianna’s room and he pulled open the door. She entered and he followed, closing the door with some force when the wind gusted into the arched entry. Julianna hurried forward and Cailean followed. They passed nine doors before she stopped and entered her assigned quarters. Cailean stopped in the doorway. One large round candle cast a dim light in the small room, aptly named a cell. A low bed with a thin mattress sat against the wall and a table where the candle burned stood against the wall directly ahead.
She glanced over her shoulder at him. “Ye may enter, Cailean.”
He shook his head. “I’d better not.”
She lifted a brow. “Surely, ye are not afraid of a woman?”
“If I wasn’t, I would be a fool.”
Mischief lit her eyes. “Ye need not worry. I dinnae have a knife.”
“I don’t believe you, my lady.”
She lifted her chin. “It isnae polite to call a lady a liar.”
“Forgive me.” He started to turn, then stilled at the echo of approaching footsteps. “Bloody hell,” he muttered. Who was coming by at this time of night? Was it Rathais, here to finish what Hugh Murray had started?
“Quick.” Julianna grasped his arm and pulled him into the room.
“Julianna—”
She closed the door, then hissed, “Shhh.”
The footsteps drew closer then passed. Julianna took off her cloak and tossed it onto the small table.
Cailean knew he should go, but how could he possibly leave her alone and defenseless? He would sleep outside her door.
“I should go.”
She shook her head. “You must wait a few minutes to be sure no one sees you.”
Cailean leaned a shoulder against the wall and crossed his arms over his chest. “If I didn’t know better, I would say ye are trying to keep me here.”
“Why would I do that?”
He smiled. “You tell me.”
“Is my company so abhorrent that you must flee?” she asked.
“On the contrary, your company is too pleasing.”
She dropped her gaze in a clear attempt to hide her expression, but Cailean could see she was pleased.
“Then stay,” she said.
“If your brother catches me here, he will kill me.”
She snorted. “Lennox knows I am a woman grown, and I am no maiden. I can do as I please.”
“That doesnae mean he would want me dallying with you.”
“Dallying?” She lifted her brows. “Ye think well of yourself, sir.”
“Dallying isn’t what ye had in mind?”
Her eyes darkened. Yes, this woman was trouble. She started toward him. He straightened from the wall and remained perfectly still until she stopped in front of him.
“I am no idiot,” she said. “I have seen the way you look at me.”
Trouble, trouble, trouble.
He wasn’t going to take the bait. He stared but said nothing.
“Ye find me pleasing.” She set her hands on her hips.
“I have eyes,” he said, then cursed his tongue. Give the woman an inch and she would take a mile.
She stepped closer and before he could move, she placed her hands on his chest. “You want to know what it is like to kiss me.”
It wasn’t a question.

An Earl’s Christmas Embrace by Diane Dario

I have been reading romance novels since the age of fourteen.

Regency romances are one of my all-time favorite eras (grand ballrooms, dinner parties while sitting next to a grand duke or war hero just returned from fighting against Napoleon and the French, hey I girl can dream, can’t she).

When I am not reading or writing the stories I have visions in my head, I am enjoying the joyful moments with my growing family, the ballet and romantic movies.

Writing has always been a great passion for me, a long road of many ups and downs (and lots of online writing classes) and the years it took to get the craft right, finally, all my time and efforts paid off and now my dream of becoming a published author is now a reality.

It just goes to prove dreams can come true as long as you do not give up on them.

Me:  What is your favorite part of writing?

Diane:  The research and having the opportunity to let my imagination run away with me as I go into another place and time while creating romantic stories.

Me: What do you use as inspiration for your characters?

Diane:  I am a big fan on Pinterest and love creating boards for my romances – visit me there and see what my characters look like and the background for my stories.

Me: Your upcoming release, An Earl’s Christmas Embrace, tells the story of magic of Christmas. Where did you get the idea for your unique spin on this familiar theme?

Diane:  I always enjoyed reading Christmas romances and I thought I could do this and the hard part was trying to come up with a plot that wasn’t used before. I do hope you like Lettice  and Noel they overcome hidden truths, deceptions and misunderstanding to find their own miracle hidden in An Earl’s Christmas Embrace.

Me:  Is An Earl’s Christmas Embrace part of a series?

Diane:  Yes it is the Men Of Waterloo, five friends who served under Wellington. One goes missing and the remaining friends search for him as they find love along the way.






EXCERPT:
Turning toward an alcove he had spotted earlier, he couldn’t stop the tension from leaking into his voice at her teasing about the “Lord of Darkness” nonsense. “Beware, Lady Emma. Do not scoff at my actions. There is darkness in my soul. A good friend and officer died in my arms during the Battle of Hougoumont, leaving behind a widow and child. I hope you never experience the despair I’ve known, that haunts me whether I am asleep or awake. Now allow me.”
Ravenstone changed topics —and directions—abruptly, before she could respond. Touching her elbow lightly, he walked her across the ballroom to an alcove, discretely screened by potted palms. He escorted her to a green velvet chaise longue, and Lady Emma smoothed a hand over her already neatly coiffed hair. He knew her reputation would be in ruins if someone from the ton should stumble upon them in such an intimate situation without benefit of a chaperone. At this moment, though, he only wanted to be with her. His thoughts went to the painting displayed in a place of honor this very night. Of course Emma couldn’t have known it was an image of the very day he had experienced his descent into hell. His thoughts must have shown on his face, for she placed her hand lightly over his.
    He abruptly changed the subject, “By the way, where is Lady Lettice? Do you think you could introduce her to me?”
Lettice felt her heart skip a beat before she thought to ask, “Hasn’t my cousin, Lord Foxington, introduced you?”
Ravenstone’s chuckle cut her off abruptly.
    “Ah, look what hangs above us,” he said, lifting his eyes towards the ceiling. “I believe it’s mistletoe. You know what this means don’t you? Legend says you must accept a kiss, lest you be doomed not to receive any marriage proposals for a full year, and scorned for the lack. I’m sure you wouldn’t want to invite public disdain by denying my holiday kissing privileges.”
He slowly, slowly, took her hand, turned it over, and kissed her palm. He noticed a blush staining her d├ęcolletage. Her breath caught as his eyes fixed on the rosy glow that spread upward, and he asked, “Did you ever hear about the tradition that for every berry in the mistletoe I may give you a separate kiss?”
    She slowly moved her head side to side, her eyes locked on his lips. He licked his lips, loving the way her eyes dilated at the teasing motion, then continued. “I kiss you first, then I pluck off a berry. When all the berries are gone, so are the kisses.”
With that, Ravenstone lowered his head, “First kiss.”
He spoke against the softness of her skin, and planted his lips tenderly on her forehead.
    Reaching up to pluck one of the white berries, “Kiss number two,” he whispered, then kissed each eyelid in turn, finally pressing his lips on her mouth. His hands wrapped tightly in her hair, holding her head at exactly the right angle for his ministrations. His body pressed her back against the upholstered arm of the chaise, and he welcomed the heat she generated. Her response was creating such amazing sensations that he simply pressed closer.     She swayed, and he swayed with her, wrapping his arms around her, intoxicated. He just wanted to hold her close. To absorb her sweetness. Light burst inside him for the first time since that fateful day in France. He had thought he’d rather face an army of Napoleon’s men than consider marriage. But when he was with Emma, anything seemed possible.
When he was with her, he never wanted to let her out of his sight. He loved how she challenged him. Unlike the other women on the marriage mart, Emma wasn’t frightened of his stern expression. He wasn’t sure when he’d started to think of her in such intimate terms, but it felt right. She didn’t pout or flutter her eyelashes ridiculously in an attempt to make him smile. She had enough joi de vivre for them both. A few curls tumbled loose from her coiffeur. He heard her breath catch, but she remained within his embrace, and her eyes fluttered open.
    “What?” Ravenstone asked.
    Lettice shook her head, then giggled.

This is a steamy set of regency romance stories.   

Blurb


Have Yourself A Very Wicked Christmas!

Six of today’s most popular regency romance authors come together to deliver a holiday anthology full of passion, promise, and scandalous dalliance.

In Heather Boyd’s The Christmas Affair, a lonely shopkeeper offers shelter to a beautiful, not so innocent miss to overcome the bitter memories of Christmases past, but could such a wicked connection ever lead to a happily-ever-after? A dashing spy with marriage on his mind seeks to rekindle the spark by any means possible with the woman who claimed his heart in Love at First Dance by Barbara Monajem. A scandalous widow rescues the man of her dreams - but his secrets could destroy their love in Nicola Davidson's Joy to the Earl. A masquerade ball was no place to be reckless with your innocence, and yet one scorching look at the masked highwayman urges Miss Partridge to do just that in Mistletoe and the Marquess by Wendy Vella. In Lord Misrule by Donna Cummings, a young widow chooses a handsome rogue to be her first lover, but his regrets from a past Christmas may end their affair before it even commences. A blue-stocking becomes a courtesan to escape a murderer in The Glittering Prize, an intrigue-filled romance by Beverley Oakley about finding love where it’s least expected.

This is an all-new collection of stand-alone complete works.
