Three Historical Romances & a Romantic Suspense

  • Scandalous

    Scandalous by Minerva Spencer

    Scandalous by Minerva Spencer is $1.99! This is book three in the Outcasts series and I just love the colors and pop of the blue dress on the cover. I think Spencer’s romances are love ’em or hate ’em type books, as they use a lot of Old Skool tropes. How are those handled? What do you think?

    “Have you no decency?”

    Straight-laced missionary Sarah Fisher has never met a man like Captain Martin Bouchard. He is the most beautiful person—male or female—she’s ever seen. Overwhelmingly masculine, elegantly attired despite months at sea, he is in complete command of everyone and everything around him: everyone, that is, except Sarah. But that’s about to change, because Sarah has bought Bouchard’s mercy with the only thing she has to sell: her body.

    “None at all…”

    In spite of her outrageous offer, Martin has no doubt Sarah is a virgin, and a most delectable one at that. But instead of bedding her, he finds himself staring down the muzzle of his own pistol. Clearly, the longer she stays on his ship, the greater the chances that she’ll end up its damned captain! Most infuriating of all, she looks past his perfect exterior to the wounded man inside. Can Martin outrun his scandalous past in time to have a future with the first woman to find and capture his heart?

  • The Lady Traveler’s Guide to Scoundrels and Other Gentlemen

    The Lady Traveler’s Guide to Scoundrels and Other Gentlemen by Victoria Alexander

    The Lady Travelers Guide to Scoundrels and Other Gentlemen by Victoria Alexander is $1.99! This is the first book in the Lady Travelers Society series and it has, you guessed it, lady travelers. Readers say the plot takes a while to pick up, but others say this historical romance is both sweet and funny.

    Embark on the breathtaking romantic adventures of The Lady Travelers Society in the brand-new series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander

    Really, it’s too much to expect any normal man to behave like a staid accountant in order to inherit the fortune he deserves to support the lifestyle of an earl. So when Derek Saunders’s favorite elderly aunt and her ill-conceived—and possibly fraudulent—Lady Travelers Society loses one of their members, what’s a man to do but step up to the challenge? Now he’s escorting the world’s most maddening woman to the world’s most romantic city to find her missing relative.

    While India Prendergast only suspects his organization defrauds gullible travelers, she’s certain a man with as scandalous a reputation as Derek Saunders cannot be trusted any farther than the distance around his very broad shoulders. As she struggles not to be distracted by his wicked smile and the allure of Paris, instead of finding a lost lady traveler, India just may lose her head, her luggage and her heart.

  • Shattered Secrets

    Shattered Secrets by Karen Harper

    Shattered Secrets by Karen Harper is $1.99! This is the first book in her Cold Creek series. This is a romantic suspense/mystery set in a small town. Content warning: The heroine is abducted as a child, though she is unable to remember it. I’m sure it comes back during the course of the book. Some readers thought the book started off strong and dipped off from there, while others said they needed to get through a few chapters before their interest really kicked in. Has anyone read this book?

    Every town has its secrets… 

    Returning to Cold Creek, Ohio, is an act of courage for Tess Lockwood. Abducted and held captive as a young girl, she is unable to remember anything about the crime that destroyed her childhood and tore her family apart. Now a grown woman with a bright future, she is certain she has put the past behind her. But when she inherits the family home, Tess must confront the demons that still haunt her and the town of Cold Creek.

    Gabe McCord has always blamed himself for what happened to Tess. He had been a teenager when she was snatched from the group of children he was responsible for watching. Now Gabe has taken on the role of sheriff and hopes to shed new light on the cold case, especially given his growing feelings for Tess.

    Tess isn’t ready to recall what happened to her, and she has no intention of digging up any details that might remind her of the truth. But when another child in the town goes missing, she’s certain it’s related to her return to Cold Creek. Together,Tess and Gabe will have to work to unlock their painful memories in order to save another child and heal their damaged souls, for good….

  • Project Duchess

    Project Duchess by Sabrina Jeffries

    Project Duchess by Sabrina Jeffries is still on sale for 99c! This historical romance is the first book in the Duke Dynasty series. I also made a cocktail for this one! Jeffries books are hit or miss for me. What do you think?

    From New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries comes a sparkling new series about an oft-widowed mother’s grown children, who blaze through society in their quest for the truth about their fathers . . . and in the process find that love just might conquer all . . .

    A series of stepfathers and a difficult childhood have left Fletcher “Grey” Pryde, 5th Duke of Greycourt, with a guarded heart, enviable wealth, and the undeserved reputation of a rogue. Grey’s focus on expanding his dukedom allows him little time to find a wife. But when his mother is widowed yet again and he meets the charmingly unconventional woman managing his stepfather’s funeral, he’s shocked to discover how much they have in common. Still, Grey isn’t interested in love, no matter how pretty, or delightfully outspoken, the lady . . .

    Beatrice Wolfe gave up on romance long ago, and the arrogant Duke of Greycourt with his rakish reputation isn’t exactly changing her mind. Then Grey agrees to assist his grief-stricken mother with her latest “project”: schooling spirited, unfashionable Beatrice for her debut. Now that Beatrice is seeing through Grey’s charms to his wounded heart, she’s having trouble keeping him at arm’s length. But once Grey starts digging into her family’s secrets, she must decide whether her loyalties lie with her family . . . or with the man whose lessons capture her heart . . .

    I no longer read much HR, and I haven’t read SCANDALOUS, but I really enjoyed THE FOOTMAN, which Minerva Spencer published under her alternate name of S.M. LaViolette. However, subsequent books I tried (published under either of her names) didn’t do much for me and I’m starting to wonder if THE FOOTMAN was an anomaly. I think she does class differences really well, but the sexy-times are often OTT and border on clinically explicit. But, as always, YMMV.

    I’ve seen that Jeffries a number of times now and STILL trip over the cover. There’s a lot I’m willing to forgive (in terms of historical correctness and fact-checking) with romance novels, but dancing? No. It’s my hill to die on. 🙂 One of the very few ways an unrelated man and woman could touch in public in the Georgian-Regency-Victorian eras. Important part of social relationships. Artists, and publishers commissioning cover paintings, should know what a dance hold actually looks like. Leader holds follower with RIGHT arm. *sigh* /soapbox

    It’s funny the things which bother us. I am wondering why a member of the British aristocracy has a tradesman-surname for a first name in an era when this wasn’t Done. Fletcher? I mean, why? Are his siblings Tanner and Tyler and Mason? Why give a Regency duke a twenty-first century American baby name?

    Fletcher’s half brothers are Sheridan and Marlowe. They’re all named after playwrights. They are also all dukes.

    Project Duchess was just okay. I really disliked the second book in the series, The Bachelor. The third and fourth books, Who Wants to Marry a Duke and Undercover Duke, were definitely the best of the bunch.

    It’s a fine enough series (though with some definite suspension of belief needed and a bit ridiculous at times) but Who Wants to Marry a Duke was the only one I enjoyed enough to own. If you’re interested in them I’d recommend trying to get them from your library and spending your 99c elsewhere.

    Oh, man, SCANDALOUS was a DNF for me. From my Goodreads notes:

    I’m squeamish about a (I think) white author writing a former slave hero who ends up with a white African missionary. The hero has also slept with “hundreds” of women and I’m not here to slut shame (I think the hero was also a sex worker; I’m unclear if this was voluntary because it has the “he liked having sex with lots of women so who cares it was coercive!” angle), but this is the 1800s, so hello STIs? Finally, when I flipped to the end, there’s this:

    “He’d thought he was a free man but, somewhere along the way, he’d become enslaved without even realizing it. This time it was chains of love, and he never wanted to break free.”

    I just…really??? THAT’s your punchline?

    Anyway, DNF.

    Oh, and the Jeffries is just dull and unsexy.
