Love is one experiment this scientist hasn't tested…

Book Once Upon a Highland Summer

Once Upon a Highland Summer by Lecia Cornwall is $2.99! This is the start of the Once Upon a Highland Season series and has a 3.6-star rating on GR. With curses, ghosts, and Scottish Highlanders, this has to set off someone's catnip alarm. Readers loved the paranormal touch to the story and found it to be a quick, easy read.

An ancient curse, a pair of meddlesome ghosts, a girl on the run, and a fateful misunderstanding make for the perfect chance at true love.

Lady Caroline Forrester is on the run from her brother's scheme to marry her off to the highest bidder. An escape to Scotland offers a chance at employment as a governess and freedom from an unhappy marriage—it's the perfect solution. But Caroline wasn't prepared for the feelings that her new employer brings out in her.

Alec McNabb, the reluctant Earl of Glenorne, never expected to return home to Scotland. But now that he's there, he realizes he has obligations that he cannot escape. Alec needs to marry well, and quickly.

When a case of mistaken identity—coupled with the sensual, magical atmosphere of Glenorne Castle—results in a passionate encounter, Caroline and Alec must decide whether their attraction is enough to overcome the problems of their pasts, or whether this one chance at true love was over before it began…

Book The Bride Says No

The Bride Says No by Cathy Maxwell is $1.99 and is the first book in The Brides of Wishmore series! The second book, The Bride Says Maybe ( A | BN | K | ARe ), is also on sale. The historical romance revolves around a heroine falling in love with her almost-brother-in-law after her sister goes all Runaway Bride. Readers genuinely liked the starring couple, but felt too much of the book focused on the heroine's selfish sister.

Lady Aileen never thought she’d be in this position—falling in love with her sister’s betrothed! Of course, her sister did run away rather than marry him, and he doesn’t seem to be all that interested in her sister either, but even so, such a match is impossible…isn’t it?

Aileen is certain she must turn away from the man she loves in order to protect her sister’s reputation. However, he’s not one to give up without a fight, and now that he’s met a woman he wants to marry, nothing on earth could convince him to let Aileen go.

    Not sure what a toad of the court is but the last one looks tempting and maybe I’d find out.

    I selected Amanda Forester’s A Wedding in Springtime because it was free, enjoyed reading it and purchased A Midsummer Bride.  When finished, I again opened SBTB and clicked through to Amazon to purchase A Winter’s Wedding, rationalizing the high price [for my reading habit] away by concentrating on the average price per book.  It ruined my evening to find that A Winter’s Wedding won’t be available until next month. 

    One aspect of these books that I found interesting is the inclusion of faith as a facet of the character—praying when in a tight spot, for example, or reminding another character that concern for others can be acted upon, not just espoused.  Nor were these “sweet” romances.  Oh, no. 

    I enjoyed the various plot threads (perhaps the other commenters did not read in order?) because life, I find, has a lot of plot threads.

    I just finished listening to Cathy Maxwell’s The Bride Says No and am now 3/4 of the way through The Bride Says Maybe.  They are both narrated by Mary Jane Wells and she has done a great job with both the male and female Scottish voices.  I highly recommend both books.  It is true that the author spent a lot of time focusing on the sister in the first book, but I think it made her character development stronger in the second book.  There are some nice secondary characters too!

    With Cathy Maxwell’s book, I would second the sister having a huge role.  I was never sure whose romance this was about until halfway through.  And of course, the book ends with a huge cliff hanger for the sister.  At points, the book felt more literary than romance.  That said, it was a good read, but just different.
