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.

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.

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.
