Love After Waterloo

Love After Waterloo

After Waterloo Series #1

Suzi Love

Love After Waterloo by Suzi Love

Reviewed by Helen

I love a good historical that will keep me smiling throughout and this one does, the banter between our hero Captain Gabe Belling and heroine Lady Anne Melton is just fabulous and of course their journey to a HEA filled with some danger is steamy and beautiful.

Captain Belling has been injured during fighting with Wellington and has been given the task of taken wounded soldiers home to England but amongst his passengers is the beautiful Lady Melton and her son Daniel Gabe is drawn to Anne but he is also a little bit arrogant in his thinking on woman following the drum and working on injured soldiers and that gets them off to a bad start.

Anne has been widowed for some time and has followed the drum with her twin brothers she nurses the injured soldiers and helps her physician brother, she has danced with Captain Bellows at balls but knows his feelings on woman and nursing but when they are together in close quarters the pull between them is too strong to deny and she realizes how much she has missed a man.

This really is a great quick read as Gabe and Anne spend a few days travelling across a dangerous France to get back to England but they do very much enjoy each others company in and out of bed. Anne is such a strong heroine and I loved her banter with Gabe. I loved their journey to a HEA between two people who very much deserved it loved their sensuality and young Daniel is such a character thank you MS Love for a great story.

And Then Mine Enemy by Alison  Stuart

Reviewed Helen

I love stories with historical history in them and MS Stuart knows her history and she has such a way with words that the characters and happenings of the time come to life and take you back in time to journey with them and this one is so moving and fabulous.

Adam Coulter returns to England at a time of unrest with the start of civil war where friends family and neighbours fight against each other for what they believe in but Adam is hardened he has led a life that has seen suffering and injustice but he as everyone choses his side and does what needs to be done.

Perdita Gray has been married widowed and now lives with distant family her marriage was loveless and her husband cruel she is now betrothed to Simon a good man but planning their wedding with a civil war is not easy and things don't go to plan. But when Adam Coulter arrives on the doorstep she as always helps and her life is about to change.

I loved this one from start to finish the written words pull you into the story the characters are like friends and the struggles that these people had to go through back then must have been so hard but wow the strength that is shown by Perdita and Adam is amazing, the good news this is the first book in the series and I cannot wait to find out more about their lives and their love. Thank you MS Stuart for another keep love your stories.

The Lovely Duckling by Lila DiPasqua

Reviewed by Helen

MS DiPasqua knows how to engage her readers in stories that will have you warming up they are very sexy and sensual and so very moving and who doesn't love a good fairy tale come to life on the pages and I can highly recommend this one the scared Emilie de Sarron finally gets the sensual awaking she has been wanting for so long and by the handsome and strong Joseph dÁlumbert.

Emilie was burned when a young girl and also hurt badly years before some men are just so uncaring of the names they call people but after reading some very erotic books Emilie has decided that it is her time to finally feel all that she desires and attends her aunts masquerade and to finally meet the man she has been writing to for some time but all is not what it seems for Emilie.

Joseph is the son of a Duc and can be arrogant he is a twin and has always enjoyed the pleasures of any woman but years earlier he had played a part in hurting a young woman and it has played badly on his conscience so he is determined to help Emilie enjoy her time at the masquerade and loses his heart in the process.

Make sure you have a fan and a cool drink because this one is going to warm you up in so many ways beautifully written the setting is amazing the clothes the people of this era have all be bought to life but the journey to a HEA is so emotional and moving as we see Emilie finally feel the love and joy that she had taken away from her before and to see Joseph stand up for her oh such a beautiful story thank you MS DiPasqua for another fabulous fairy tale.

A Match Made in Mistletoe by Anna Campbell

Reviewed by Helen

MS Campbell's stories are a must read for me and I am never let down by one, she has a way with words that are magical they open up a whole new world for me they take me back to the times of manners and rules that are made to be broken by the rakes of London and this one is no exception.

Serena Talbot has had her heart and mind fixed on one of her brother's best friends Sir Paul Garside forever and she is determined that this Christmas with the help of mistletoe she is going to get her man but the dream she has is not what she expected and there is another man to watch out for another close friend of the family Lord Hallam what does this magic hold for Serena.

Giles Farraday The Marquess of Hallam has visited the Talbot family at Christmas for many years and has always been made welcome and he has had his dreams of the beautiful Serena but she has only ever had eyes for his friend Paul, so when Serena agrees to let him help her in the art of kissing the mind runs amuck with sensual thoughts from them both after that first kiss.

This is such a fun and enjoyable story that will keep you turning the pages as Giles wakes Serena up to the emotions and feelings that come with kissing could Serena have been wrong about the person she truly wants what has the mistletoe done to her, her mind is aflutter with thoughts and emotions. I can highly recommend this story do yourself a favour and sit back and relax with this fabulous story it is a beautiful Christmas one and yes you will be smiling very much when you get to the HEA. Thank you MS Campbell for another fabulous story.

Loved this one, if you are looking for a story that will warm you and make you smile then this is one for you fast paced and very steamy with a bit of suspense regarding a ring thrown in just the story to keep you very entertained for a few hours.

Aimee de Miran will do anything to help her cousin even put herself in the hands of the gorgeous and dashing Adam de Vey Marquis de Nattes to find this ring that desperately needs to be returned to its owner. Aimee has been widowed for three years and has stayed free of men for this time but she cannot ignore the burning heat and spark that strikes whenever she is near Adam and as for Adam he has loved Aimee from afar for many years and when she is suddenly in his rooms what is a man supposed to do except show his love and warm them both.
