Stranded with the Scottish Earl

Stranded with the Scottish Earl by Anna Campbell

Reviewed by Helen

What can I say other than this is such a fantastic story another keeper from MS Campbell who is a true story teller bringing fun, emotions and a sizzling sensual tale of love at first sight is such a storm.

When Ewan Macrae Earl of Lyle arrives on the a doorstep in the pouring rain at Bassington Grange to meet with the woman that he is determined to marry he is shocked to find Cinderella at the door but the beauty that he saw in the miniature is even more beautiful in person and Ewan is now even more determined to make her his wife but she is one stubborn and headstrong woman will he make her heart melt and get the kisses and loving that he so badly wants?

Charlotte Warren has been through a broken engagement that left her shrouded in a little scandal and she has made up her mind to not ever marry her father dotes on her and she pretty much runs the estate she is strong, determined and very independent, she does all in her power to turn the Earl away but to no avail so they end up stranded together during a stormy couple of days that sees the spark between them heat up to sizzling.

Truly this is such a fun, sensual and beautiful story with the feisty Charlotte pushing The Earl as much as she can little realizing that this strong Scottish Earl wants nothing more than a feisty strong willed woman to make his wife and when Charlotte finally gives in the pages burn up with the sizzle that arcs between them. Do yourself a favour get your drink of choice and sit back and enjoy you will not want to be disturbed while reading this one :)

Bewitching in Boots by Lila DiPasqua

Reviewed by Helen
MS DiPasqua takes us back to the courts of Louis XIV with the Puss in Boots tale very much in her thoughts this is a hot and steamy story in a world were woman and their possessions are owned and controlled by men but there is always the exception the strong woman who knows what she wants and goes for it. Sit back make yourself comfortable and enjoy Elisabeth de Roussel's story she is the favourite daughter of The King at the moment.

Elisabeth has decided that she will choose her next husband and she knows who she wants and has a plan to get her man the ex-commander of the King's private Guard the Musketeers Tristan de Tiersonnier who was injured and stood down, she must be careful about how she goes about it with her father Elisabeth's thoughts of Tristan are always hot and steamy so when she arrives at his chateau in men's clothing and the sexiest pair of boots to get fencing lessons Tristan is hard pressed to ignore her but he tries.

This is and erotic tale of determination and love neither own up to love willingly but when they realize they are in love you will be smiling. This is a wonderfully written short story that yes you will need a fan at the ready I thoroughly enjoyed this one as I have all of MS DiPasqua's stories and I highly recommend this one I have a soft spot for Tristan.

5/5 stars for a great story

Daisy's story was worth the wait what a story this one is Daisy as always is the most stubborn gel she is more determined than ever to be the best modiste to the toffs and have her own shop while her sisters Abby, Damaris and Jane have found the heroes so well suited to them but Daisy is determined to stay single, because of the life that she has led up until meeting her sisters and Lady Bea Daisy has a hard time trusting but she is working her fingers to the bone at the moment with her beautiful clothing.

Patrick Flynn runs a shipping company with Max and Freddy he has made his money and has now arrived in London to find himself a wife and settle down he wants a Lady. Flynn is Irish and not your normal gentleman but he is honest and caring with memories from his childhood that he keeps close. Daisy has been making him some vests and they have become close friends they get along so well and there is a pull but neither of them are going to do anything about it they have their lives mapped out for themselves and are both determined to stick to their ideas.

This is the final book in The Chance Sisters series and I think Daisy's finished it off wonderfully truly Lady Bea was at her best with Daisy and her worries such a stubborn gel and well Flynn is just the best hero and when he realized that Daisy was the perfect woman for him there was no stopping him two stubborn determined people their journey was filled with ups and downs but so sensually sizzling I loved it from page one and of course the characters that we have made friends with in the first three books are all there to join in this one.

I highly recommend this one and this series they were a joy to read so many hours of reading pleasure you will smile shed some tears and sigh while reading this fabulous story one for the keeper shelf.

This is a story that is just fabulous in my opinion fast paced with so many emotions that will pull at your heart strings as we journey to a HEA that will bring you to tears with the joy.

Young Kit Singleton has arrived in London with a promise made to her father on his deathbed, Kit has never been to England she has lived a life no young English lady should through many countries and although she has learnt a lot about being a lady she has learnt a lot about other ways to survive in life but has Kit met her match when she arrives to live as the long lost Singleton niece with her Aunt Rose and starts her dangerous mission that meant honour to her father.

Hugo Devenish is a man of trade with family in the Ton and he has do what ever he can to stop his nephew from marrying an unsuitable heiress the young Kit Singleton who seems to be a mystery to The Ton, but Hugo is nothing if not determined to find out the truth about this woman. With burglaries going on things are getting a bit worrisome and there is a lot of talk and Hugo is on the job with his suspicions and he will uncover the truth.

This is a beautifully written story I really liked Kit she is so strong and caring and honourable and she made me laugh and smile and of course Hugo is just the man for her the spark between them is really strong and gets stronger at every meeting. MS Gracie has never disappointed me with one of her stories and again this is one for the keeper shelf I highly recommend this one you will definitely be smiling and crying happily at the end of this one.

Winning Lord West by Anna Campbell

Reviewed by Helen

What can I say MS Campbell just has such a way with words that brings characters and events to life on the pages her stories are beauties to read sensual sizzling thrilling and just not put down-able. This was one I was really looking forward to the third in The Dashing Widows series and yes I adored it I loved Helena and West's story from start to finish.

Helena, Countess of Crewe has been through a dreadful marriage she has been widowed for a couple of years now and is determined not to re-marry her and her two friends also widows have decided it is time to hit town again and throw the widows clothes away but Caro and Fen have met their matches are preparing to marry hence we meet Lord West Vernon Grange whom was Helena first love but West introduced a very young Helena to the man she would marry and regret. It is time now for West to step back into Helena's life and very determined.

West has every intention of making Helena his again and he is nothing if not persistent when he invites Helena and her brother Silas to picnic and presents her with a fabulous gift and here starts a very seductive titillating journey to a HEA that has a few ups and downs.

This is a story that I highly recommend the banter between West and Helena is just fabulous the wit and strength that is shown from both of them will have you turning the pages and cheering them both on you will be smiling with joy as they reach the pinnacle of their cognizance at finding true love. It was also so good catching up with the other widows and their partners and what can I say about the epilogue loved it so thank you once again MS Campbell for another awesome story that will stay with me for a long time to come.

A Taste of Seduction by Bronwen Evans

A Taste of Seduction
by Bronwen Evans

Review by TashNz

These days I worry if I pick up a novel that I won’t have the time to devote to it because I don’t have a lot of time to read, which is why something of a Presents length is perfect, I can find time…  but seeing the cover of A Taste of Seduction and knowing I’ve heard so much about the author – this book was literally begging to be read.  I asked Netgalley and the book gods kindly accepted me.

I was rewarded with a sensational tale that had me quietly hooked and by that I mean the book quietly snuck up on me in a wonderful way and before I realised it I was gladly swapping my Netflix time to soak up more of Hadley and Evangeline’s epic journey of love.  There were subtle twists and turns in the plot as well as gripping and smack bang in your face twists and turns.  Mixed with every A-Z emotion under the sun for all of the characters involved and the exquisite descriptions of land travelled, Bronwen Evans placed me at the heart of the 1800’s, which would be quite an unimaginable time to live but with the help of all of the above – I was there – hanging on for dear life and sobbing with the characters and cheering with them and celebrating and commiserating.  A flower shop of delight!


A wonderful riveting read which I would highly recommend for all historical romance lovers.  The story is worth putting quality time aside.  A Disgraced Lords Novel which has love and romance as well as drama, intrigue and mystery.  It can be read as a stand alone but I love how it touches on enough to make you want to look up the rest of the Disgraced Lords  book and the Epilogue is sensational!!!  I can not wait to find out in the future how Arend fares.

Another keeper from MS Campbell I loved this Beauty and The Beast story.

Beautiful Lady Fenella Deerham has been widowed for five years now after losing her beloved Henry at Waterloo and has devoted those years to caring for her son Brandon but when her two closest friends (The Dashing Widows) bring her back into society she has men falling at her feet but they are not wanted attentions it takes a beast of a man barging into her sitting room with accusations that finally set some sparks off in Fenella's mind.

Anthony Townsend runs the biggest shipping company in all of England he has travelled the world led an adventuress life but he too has lost family and is now guardian of his nephew Carey and he has run away from school with his best friend Brandon Deerham, but when Anthony barges his way into Lady Derehams residence looking for his nephew he finds a beautiful woman who has the courage and strength to stand up to him.

Grab a beverage of your choice and sit back and enjoy this very sensual and exciting journey that shows how strong and powerful love can be. I loved this one the characters literally come to life on the pages as you turn them the emotions and spark between Anthony and Fenella light up the room, I highly recommend this story it is one not to be missed it will have you smiling.
