Review: Lady Edith's Lonely Heart by Audrey Harrison

I'm absolutely delighted to share my review of Lady Edith’s Lonely Heart by Audrey Harrison . A fabulously gripping tale! My thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources and the author for a review copy. I read this novel in two sittings on consecutive evenings. It was absorbing, engaging and witty.  It’s the intriguing tale of Lady Edith, whose mother is keen to see her wed at the age of twenty-three. But who has ideas of marrying for love. Is that so impossible? She soon discovers who it is she wants, but fate seems to be against her.  I found the characters well-drawn and realistic, with Ralph’s family conflict adding to the drama. Where he seems aloof, withdrawn from society, there is a good reason. And eventually, that conflict will resolve itself... I thoroughly enjoyed reading Lady Edith’s Lonely Heart , and would highly recommend it to readers of Regency romance with a touch of adventure. I shall be looking for more books by the author.  ~~~ Blurb: Lady Edith’

Review: Her Dark Knight's Redemption by Nicole Locke

I’m thrilled to share my review of Nicole Locke ’s gripping tale, Her Dark Knight’s Redemption . Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources and the author for a review copy. This novel had a different feel to it which made for intriguing reading. It begins in Paris in 1297. The heroine, Aliette, is not simply a lady, but a girl who has to fight for her survival every day. She looks after three strays – an older couple and a boy whose parents had been hung for theft, so when he steals several loaves of bread, she returns them to the baker who wants to see her thrown into gaol.  Instead, she is whisked away into the house of Reynold, a son of the infamous Warstones – a family more powerful than kings, where she is to look after his daughter, Grace, whose mother had died. Reynold really is a bad guy, a man who has killed during his feud against his family; a man who literally walks over corpses.  Both main characters are scarred by their past and how their lives turned out.
