Never Doubt a Duke Book Review:

After spending the last ten years following her late husband on campaign, the irrepressible Jane Kimball finds herself badly in need of a position to support herself. Marriage holds no appeal; she's not likely to find a husband like her Jimmy again. But when Miss Thorn of the Fortune Employment Agency offers her a post with the Duke of Wey, Jane feels drawn to help the lonely widower with his three daughters. He may seem a bit aloof, but Miss Thorn's cat Fortune approved of him. Why should Jane doubt a duke? Alaric, Duke of Wey, commands his staff, his tenants, and the halls of Parliament, managing vast holdings in England and across the seas. Why is it he cannot manage his own daughters? As an old danger rears its head, he comes to rely on Jane's practical nature, her outspoken ways to navigate the waters of fatherhood. And when necessity dictates he take a wife, thoughts turn to an unlikely governess who might make the perfect bride. This sweet, clean Regency romance is the first in the Fortune's Brides series. Previous praise for Regina Scott's work: - "Regina Scott's irresistible characters will win your heart." Eloisa James, NYT and USA Today bestselling author - "If the book has the name Regina Scott on its cover, it is sure to please. Highly recommended." Huntress Reviews Here's a taste: The duke's smile was wry. "You have no need to apologize, Mrs. Kimball. We disturbed your well-earned rest, invaded your privacy, and called you names. You'd have every right to tender your resignation." Jane returned his smile. "Oh, I don't give up so easily. Besides, where else would I have the opportunity to see a unicorn?" "There is that." His smile faded. "I'll speak to my daughters in the morning. I begin to see why the other governesses left." "Cowards," Jane told him. "I've seen too much to be frightened of a voice in the wardrobe." "I'm glad, Mrs. Kimball." Suddenly he made a face, making him much more human. "I wonder, would you mind if I used your first name?" That fluttering feeling was building again. She ought to refuse, keep her distance. Her mouth opened before she could stop it. "Not at all, Your Grace." "Thank you, Jane." Why was it she felt as if he'd caressed her cheek? Her first name was only one syllable while her last name was two. He was probably just being efficient. "And on behalf of my entire family, I apologize." He swept her a bow as if to prove it. "You have been like a summer breeze through this place, clearing out the cobwebs and chasing away the dark." How beautiful. Once again, she clamped her mouth shut against the words building behind it. "And perhaps we can dispense with the 'Your Grace' business," he suggested. Jane fidgeted. This was dangerous ground. The maids and footman were just down the corridor. Mr. Parsons the butler had to be waiting. But still she felt as if the world had come down to the duke and her. "I don't know your first name," she pointed out. "And I imagine Mr. Parsons would have apoplexy if I used it. Perhaps Wey? And only in private." "I will settle for Wey. I'll leave you to enjoy the rest of your evening. Thank you, Jane, for not giving up on us." She saw him to the door, closed it behind him, and leaned her back against it. She had never been the type to give up. She was more likely to ride the extra mile, take the high hill. She had fought against Jimmy's stepmother to marry him, fought for her place at his side in the field. She had never let anything stop her from achieving her dream. But when it came to her growing feelings for Wey, she knew an impossible dream when she saw one. Fortune's Brides: Only a matchmaking cat can hunt true love.

From Blood and Ash Book Review:

Captivating and action-packed, From Blood and Ash is a sexy, addictive, and unexpected fantasy perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Laura Thalassa. A Maiden… Chosen from birth to usher in a new era, Poppy’s life has never been her own. The life of the Maiden is solitary. Never to be touched. Never to be looked upon. Never to be spoken to. Never to experience pleasure. Waiting for the day of her Ascension, she would rather be with the guards, fighting back the evil that took her family, than preparing to be found worthy by the gods. But the choice has never been hers. A Duty… The entire kingdom’s future rests on Poppy’s shoulders, something she’s not even quite sure she wants for herself. Because a Maiden has a heart. And a soul. And longing. And when Hawke, a golden-eyed guard honor bound to ensure her Ascension, enters her life, destiny and duty become tangled with desire and need. He incites her anger, makes her question everything she believes in, and tempts her with the forbidden. A Kingdom… Forsaken by the gods and feared by mortals, a fallen kingdom is rising once more, determined to take back what they believe is theirs through violence and vengeance. And as the shadow of those cursed draws closer, the line between what is forbidden and what is right becomes blurred. Poppy is not only on the verge of losing her heart and being found unworthy by the gods, but also her life when every blood-soaked thread that holds her world together begins to unravel.

Along Came a Duke Book Review:

“Wit, passion, and adventure, Elizabeth Boyle has it all!” —Julia Quinn New York Times bestselling RITA® Award winner Elizabeth Boyle is a wonder, and with Along Came a Duke—the first book in her delectable Rhymes with Love series based on well-known nursery rhymes—she proves once more that no one writes wittier, more endearing and original historical romance. Returning once more to England during the colorful Regency Era, Boyle transports readers to the small town of Kempton, where a local curse prevents the female residents from wedding—a fact that cannot deter a plucky young heiress who needs to marry to inherit her fortune, as she strikes out for London to wed a rakish and unsuspecting duke. Funny, touching, and wonderfully sensuous, Along Came a Duke is a prime example of the exceptional romantic magic that puts Elizabeth Boyle in the same master class as Lisa Kleypas and Christina Dodd.

A Distance Too Grand (American Wonders Collection Book #1) Book Review:

Meg Pero has been assisting her photographer father since she was big enough to carry his equipment, so when he dies she is determined to take over his profession--starting with fulfilling the contract he signed to serve on an Army survey of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in 1871. What she doesn't realize is that the leader of the expedition is none other than the man she once refused to marry. Captain Ben Coleridge would like nothing more than to leave without the woman who broke his heart, but he refuses to wait even one more day to get started. This survey is a screen for another, more personal mission, one he cannot share with any member of his team. As dangers arise from all sides, including within the survey party, Meg and Ben must work together to stay alive, fulfill their duties, and, just maybe, rekindle a love that neither had completely left behind.
