Historical romance author Samantha Grace discovered the appeal of a great love story when she was just a young girl, thanks to Disney’s Robin Hood. She didn’t care that Robin Hood and Maid Marian were cartoon animals. It was her first happily-ever-after experience and she didn’t want the warm fuzzies to end. Now Samantha enjoys creating her own happy-endings for characters that spring from her imagination. Publishers Weekly describes her stories as “fresh and romantic” with subtle humor and charm. Samantha describes romance writing as the best job ever.

The complication they don't want… Lady Katherine Kinloch survived captivity once. Now the notorious captain of her own ship, she refuses to let anyone jeopardize her hard-won freedom. But on a voyage to England to fight for her family's endangered estate, Katherine is thrown off course when she unknowingly rescues celebrated naval captain James Warre…a man who stands for everything she despises. The passion they desperately need… Haunted by regret for his role in her dark past, James is determined to be more than the cold, calculating officer Katherine expects. Her seduction is his obsession, but his pride hangs in the balance if he gives in to temptation. And hiding beneath the scorching attraction between them lies a secret that could force the two apart for good.

Lady Katherine Kinloch was abducted and spent years in captivity.  She has persevered and now she is the Captain of her own ship.  She is famous among shipmen for her pirate tactics. Now, her inheritance is in jeopardy and she must head back to London to claim what is rightfully hers.  First, she must reluctantly rescue a shipwrecked man from the turbulent seas.

 

Famous Naval Captain James Warre went down with his ship.  He was about to give up on his chances of survival when a pirate ship plucked him from the water.  He lies about his identity for fear he might not be welcome if they knew he was a Naval Captain.  The journey back to London allows him to get to know Lady Katherine and her crew.

 

High seas are very dangerous but they do not hold a candle to the ladies of the London ton.  Katherine and James may bond at sea but things heat up once they hit the streets of London.  Will they be able to survive the sceptics of the Ton?

 

A Gentleman ‘til Midnight is a swashbuckling adventure bursting with steamy romance and witty characters.  I love that Katherine is the captain of her ship and she is an excellent one at that.  She commands her people and they love her for it.  I especially love the scenes with her daughter. They are so tender and sweet.  James is weak and desolate when we meet him but it doesn’t take long to learn there is much more to this man. Ms. Delaine definitely knows how to write strong characters that leave an impression long after the last line.

 

Katherine’s ship and the rough seas make a wondrous backdrop.  The way Katherine and James banter and flirt is fun and romantic.  I really fell in love with these two!  While there is plenty of romance the story features tons of laughs and drama as well.  A Gentleman ‘til Midnight captures the reader and will leave them wanting more after the last page.

Torn between his duty and his soul mate, what will this Highland bad boy choose? In the third book of this fun, action-packed Highland trilogy, Victoria Roberts introduces her baddest bad boy yet. Laird Alexander MacDonnell must choose between his duty or losing his heart forever to the woman who betrayed him- his own wife. Lady Sybella MacKenzie is forced to search for her clan's ancient seeing stone under the roof of her father's enemy. When she finds the precious artifact, will she choose the family who raised her, or will she stand with the man who has captured her soul?

Sybella MacKenzie has always been the adventurous sort.  She wanted to do things like her brothers, important things.  Unfortunately, when she finally gets called on by her father to do something important it’s marrying a rival clan’s laird.  Alexander MacDonnell isn’t exactly keen on marriage as he’s used to playing the field.  However, there is something about Ella that draws Alex.  He wants to figure out everything about the lovely Ella but she keeps holding back. Will he be able to woo Ella or will this marriage be over before it begins?

 

Victoria Roberts To Wed a Wicked Highlander is a great addition to the Bad Boys of the Highlands series.  Alex and Ella make for an entertaining couple.  Ella who has always wanted to be one of the boys isn’t exactly happy to be married off to the bed hopping Alex. Which makes for a great starting point for the pairing.

 

Roberts excels at witty banter and this couple are masters at it.  To Wed a Wicked Highlander is a wonderful highland romance.  It makes the reader feel like they are breathing in the Highland air with the characters.

Pepper has been hopelessly in love with her best friend's brother, Hunter, for, like, ever. He's the key to everything she's always craved: security, stability, family. But she needs Hunter to notice her as more than just a friend. Even though she's kissed exactly one guy, she has the perfect plan to go from novice to rock star in the bedroom: take a few pointers from someone who knows what he's doing.Her college roommates have the perfect teacher in mind. But bartender Reece is nothing like the player Pepper expects. Yes, he's beyond gorgeous, but he's also dangerous and deep—with a troubled past. Soon what started as a lesson in attraction is turning both their worlds upside down, and showing them just what can happen when you go past foreplay and get to what's real. . . .

Pepper has always been in love with her best friend’s older brother, Hunter.  She has watched from behind the scenes as Hunter dated other people but now he’s single and it is the perfect time for Pepper to make her move. But there is one thing Pepper believes she needs before making her move on Hunter. She needs some skills in the bedroom and her friends have picked out the perfect guy for her to get some private lessons with.  The hottie bartender at their favorite college drinking hole.

 

Pepper is expecting an easy encounter with the bartender so she is caught off guard when she meets Reece.  Pepper can spot a troubled soul easy because she sees one when she looks in the mirror.  Reece is sexy and smooth but he might be dangerous to Pepper’s heart.  Will Reece teach Pepper the ins and outs of foreplay? Will Pepper find the family she has always wanted or true love?

 

Sophie Jordan weaves a magical spell with Pepper and Reece in Foreplay.  Their first meeting is kismet and things only get better from there.  My favorite thing about Ms. Jordan’s writing is how perfect she gets the turbulent emotions of people of her characters age.  Things are so messy when you are in the throes of first love, especially when you are carrying the baggage that Pepper and Reece are carrying around.

 

Pepper and Reece are downright steamy! Their emotions and chemistry simply drip from the pages of Foreplay!  If Pepper and Reece are the kind of couple that comes of out The Ivy Chronicles series then I am ready for book two!

Passion and scandal collide in New York Times bestselling author Julia London's brand-new series about four sisters determined to rescue themselves from ruin… Desperate times call for daring measures as Honor Cabot, the eldest stepdaughter of the wealthy Earl of Beckington, awaits her family's ruin. Upon the earl's death she and her sisters stand to lose the luxury of their grand home—and their place on the pedestal of society—to their stepbrother and his social-climbing fiancée. Forced to act quickly, Honor makes a devil's bargain with the only rogue in London who can seduce her stepbrother's fiancée out of the Cabots' lives for good. An illegitimate son of a duke, George Easton was born of scandal and grows his fortune through dangerous risks. But now he and Honor are dabbling in a perilous dance of seduction that puts her reputation and his jaded heart on the line. And as unexpected desire threatens to change the rules of their secret game, the stakes may become too high even for a notorious gambler and a determined, free-spirited debutante to handle.

The Mischievous Honor Cabot is ready to do whatever it takes to keep a roof over her and her sister’s heads after the passing of their step-father.  Her brother is about to marry a woman that really has no use for Honor or her sisters.  She is terrified of what will happen next so she comes up with a daring plan.

 

Honor decides to enlist the scandalous George Easton, the bastard son of a duke, in her plan.  Honor would like Easton to seduce her stepbrother’s fiancée away but she doesn’t count on the sparks that fly between herself and Easton.  Will Easton be able to complete her task or will his feelings for Honor change his feelings regarding love?

 

The Trouble with Honor is a fantastic start to London’s new Cabot Sisters series.  Honor and George made me laugh so many times while reading!   They have such a natural chemistry that steadily grows into something else, something stronger.  Their love story is a fun and entertaining read! Honor’s shenanigans are hilarious.  London writes her characters and plotlines with style.
