My Duke’s Seduction by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book My Duke’s Seduction by Tammy Andresen to review.

My Duke's Seduction by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

Can her gentle tenacity unlock a duke’s heart?

Lady Tricia Riley is the sweet daughter of a duke until her family’s ailments force her to breech societies’ dictates and go where no lady should… the docklands. When a tall, strong and handsome stranger helps to keep her safe, she agrees to keep their meeting, secret. She’s no interest in marrying a tall and darkly handsome stranger. Actually, she has no intention of marrying at all. Instead, she plans to dedicate herself to charitable pursuits.

Ryker Pembroke, Duke of Landon, will marry eventually, as duty requires him to do. But it is a fate, he regards with a certain amount of dread. That is, until an auburn haired minx bursts into his life. Her warmth, charm and giving nature draws him to her even as he attempts to maintain a safe distance. She is entirely wrong for him with her impulsive nature and blatant disregard for her own safety makes her a terrible choice for a wife… doesn’t it?

This is a stand-alone romance with a lovely HEA! The heroine does appear in the Earl of Sussex: Wicked Earls’ Club. And the books that follow will all be connected with the Earl of Sussex and his lovely bride, Tabbie.

This is the first book in the Wicked Lords of London series set in 1816. However Lady Tricia did briefly appear in The Earl of Sussex which I had read a few months ago. Her sister was the heroine in that book.

The story starts with Lady Tricia Riley alone at night in the London docklands, not a great place for a respectable young lady to be. She is searching for her cousin Fenton, who she is worried will die in the opium dens. But she is scared as some drunks emerge from a pub, leering and grabbing at her arm. Thankfully she is rescued by the mysterious Ryker, a gentleman who we later discover to be the Duke of Landon.

However she foolishly wishes to continue her search rather than be escorted to safety. So Ryker suggests that he will send someone to look for Fenton tomorrow instead. As they walk to where Ryker’s carriage is waiting, they hear a baby crying and Tricia picks up the abandoned infant. Another rescue. They take the foundling to an orphanage that her sister had opened, before they part ways close to Tricia’s home.

The next day she realises that she doesn’t know who Ryker is, so how will she know if Fenton has been found. She decides she will have to find Ryker to ask, but the only place that she knows to look for him is the docklands.

So having already narrowly escaped ruin once, she plans yet another night time escapade. What will happen this time?

My Duke’s Seduction is available on Amazon, currently priced at 99p in Kindle format. This is a nice romantic story, when you want a light read between thrillers.

Entrapping A Lord’s Love by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book Entrapping A Lord’s Love by Tammy Andresen to review.

Entrapping A Lord's Love by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

Lady Caroline Crawley’s fall from polite society was a foregone conclusion. Her father had joined the army to escape his debts. Debts he left hanging around his daughter’s neck like a noose. She had few options and thieving seemed as good as any. But she never expected to fall in love with one of her marks. The handsome and mysterious Lord Thomas Fairfield has her dreaming of a future that will never be hers.

Some might think that Tom and his three brothers are blessed. He knows, however, that their fate is a duty at best and most likely, a curse. His brothers have sent him to London to complete a mission. Not only is Caroline Crawley distracting him from his task, but she may just be part of the forces that are trying to thwart him.

This is the third book in the Fairfield Fairy Tales series, set in the Regency period. I haven’t read any of the other titles but this worked well as a stand-alone read.

It is based on the Fairy Tale: A Master Thief which is not a tale that I am familiar with, so after I had finished reading this book, I looked it up on Wikipedia.

Lady Caroline Crawley has lived in a London theatre with her cousin Crimson, Lord Wainscroft since she was orphaned. The theatre was the only asset left after they cleared her father’s debts. And even though everyone in so Society flocks to the theatre each night, every penny they earn is spent. So Crimson forces Caroline to pick pockets to help make ends meet.

Crimson’s latest target for Caroline is Viscount Tom Abernathy, Lord Fairfield, who is building an orphanage next-door to the theatre, in a property that Crimson had hoped to expand into, if he ever raised sufficient funds. And Crimson believes that Tom possesses a magical item.

Meanwhile Tom has a secret and he worries that Caroline and Crimson might know.

Caroline invites Tom to watch the show with her, but they have an instant connection. Will she pick his pocket or not? And what will Crimson do?

Entrapping A Lord’s Love is available on Amazon, currently priced at £2.15 in Kindle format. The third title in the Fairfield Fairy Tales series. A rather far-fetched plot but still a nice romantic read, when you just want something light-hearted in-between reading thrillers.

A Scot’s Surrender by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book A Scot’s Surrender by Tammy Andresen to review.

A Scots Surrender by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

An innocent debutante and a rogue…

Miss Agnes Burton dreams of a gentleman, a knight in shining armor that sweeps her off her feet. Laird Keiran McKenna is nothing like her dreams. A rogue and sworn bachelor, she finds him irritating, when he isn’t causing her breathless excitement. The more time she spends with him, the more the line between knight and rogue blurs. Not that it matters, because he’d never love her in return would he?

This is the third book in A Laird To Love series, of which I have previously read and reviewed the introductory Christmas novella, the first book and the second.

This historical Scottish romance is set in 1852. Circumstances force Agnes to spend the night alone with Laird Keiran McKenna but he refuses to even kiss her. Eight months later they meet again and she apologises for trying to kiss him. But what is each of them really thinking? Agnes thinks Keiran is a rogue since a gentleman would surely have given the room up for a lady. Whilst Keiran believes he tried to be a gentleman by resisting and sleeping on the floor. Both are lusting after the other but hiding their feelings as Agnes wants a gentleman, whilst meanwhile Keiran feels too dark from the war for someone as pure as Agnes. So what will ensue?

A Scot’s Surrender is available on Amazon, currently priced at £2.89 in Kindle format. The third title in A Laird To Love series, but works well as a stand-alone read. Another nice romantic predictable light-hearted read to curl up with, in-between some thrillers.

Heart of a Highlander by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book Heart of a Highlander by Tammy Andresen to review.

Heart of a Highlander by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

Will a spark between two childhood friends light into a flame…

Lady Fiona McDougal embodies the wild spirit of Scotland, untamed and free. If only her future could be the same, but she is bound by duty to marry well for the sake of the title. As her heart and necessity battle only one answer arrises time and again, Colin Campbell. But he is the one man who refuses to court her.

Colin has loved Fiona for as long as he can remember. Her fiery spirit and matching hair, fill him with a warmth that no other woman can match. But Colin’s father has long made him promise that he will choose a wife for reasons other than love.

This is the second book in A Laird To Love series, of which I have previously read and reviewed the introductory Christmas novella and the first book.

This historical Scottish romance begins with a flashback to 1836 when 5 year old Colin is  told by his father not to marry for love and passion as it will break his heart, but to marry someone strong and capable. His father’s first wife had died in childbirth and his father has never got over this, so his father frequently reiterates this advice over the years.

Colin and his best friend Fiona grow up and their relationship changes with a kiss. Colin disappears and Fiona is left wondering whether she loves or hates him. Meanwhile Fiona’s father the Earl of Ravencraig takes Fiona to a summit of lairds to find a husband. But she is interested in nobody but Colin, who also happens to be there, although she is  trying to ignore him as she is still angry with him.

Colin is very jealous if any of the other men touch Fiona, but he continually squashes his feelings, remembering his father’s advice. Fiona bluntly asks him if he is going to ask for her hand, which he knows he cannot do.

Lots of confusion follows. Do they get together or not?

Heart of a Highlander is available on Amazon, currently priced at £2.24 in Kindle format. The second title in A Laird To Love series. Another nice romantic read, when you just want something easy-going and light-hearted in-between some thrillers.

The Earl of Sussex by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book The Earl of Sussex by Tammy Andresen to review.

The Earl of Sussex by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

Wickedly sinful, the Earl of Sussex, is an unrepentant rake. The Wicked Earls’ Club is the perfect place for a man of his station to indulge. That is until his parents force a match that threatens to rob him of his freedom. Unwilling to be tamed, he travels to meet his bride and demand she put a stop to this farce. Except Lady Tabitha is nothing he expected, and everything he never knew he wanted. Too bad this fiery wallflower is equally bent on ending their engagement.

Lady Tabitha, daughter of a duke, will not be betrothed to a rake no matter what her father thinks of his social connections. As long as she doesn’t stare into the depths of his green eyes, or linger on the strong lines of his jaw, she should be able to scheme her way out of this engagement. That is, if her intended groom would just cooperate with her plans.

This is the first title in the Wicked Earls Club series, where 12 different authors each write a story about one of the 12 Wicked Regency Earls.

Luke, the Earl of Sussex is irritated because his parents are arranging a marriage for him to Lady Tabitha, daughter of the Duke of Waverly. She is known as being a wallflower at every ball, so he, a renowned rake, imagines he will die of boredom. Tabbie is equally put out when her father tells her the plan. She doesn’t want to marry a rake and gambler.

How can they get out of this plan and do they both still want to when they meet?

The Earl of Sussex is available on Amazon, currently priced at 99p in Kindle format. The first title in Wicked Regency Romance (Wicked Earls’ Club) series. This is a short light romantic read, but I did feel that it ended rather abruptly.

My Enemy, My Earl by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book My Enemy, My Earl by Tammy Andresen to review.

My Enemy, My Earl by Tammy Andresen

 

Here is the book blurb.

Fleeing London, and scandal, Lady Clarissa Burton runs directly into the wife-hunting Earl of Dumfries while travelling on a rutted Scottish road. She wanted peace in Scotland, not a tall and brooding laird who makes her forget that handsome lords are nothing but trouble.

Having spent years of his life fighting English wars, Ewan McDougal, Earl of Dumfries, wants nothing to do with England, or its people, for as long as he lives. He wants a nice Scottish lass to warm his bed and raise a family. So why can’t Ewan stop thinking about Lady Clarissa’s pouty lips or her curves made for a man’s hands? And what happened to her in London that has her running scared?

This is the first book in A Laird To Love series, of which I recently read the introductory Christmas novella.

This historical Scottish romance starts with Ewan, Earl of Dumfries and his friend Kieran en-route to meet his prospective bride Fiona whom he hasn’t seen since they were children, 10 years ago. He stops to assist with the repairs of a carriage wheel in which English Lady Clarissa is travelling with her cousin Agnes and Agnes’ mother. Clarissa finds Ewan’s remarks about the English offensive and also considers him a rake.

Turns out they are all heading to Castle Ravenscraig, as Clarissa is also cousin to Fiona and her sisters. Clarissa takes a very hostile attitude against Ewan, whilst he dislikes her for being English. However they both sense a spark. Meanwhile Fiona finds Ewan boring in comparison to neighbour Colin to whom she is secretly attracted to. Out on a ride, Ewan rescues Clarissa when her horse bolts. And Fiona accidentally refers to Ewan as “her intended” to rile Colin.

So things are starting to get complicated. Who will end up with who?

My Enemy, My Earl is available on Amazon, currently priced at £2.24 in Kindle format. The first title in A Laird To Love series. This is a nice romantic read, when you are after something light and easy.

Christmastide With My Captain by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book Christmastide With My Captain by Tammy Andresen to review.

Christmastide With My Captain by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

Love finds each of us in mysterious ways.

Lady Emilia McDougal has watched love find each of her beloved sisters. When will it be her turn? She fears it will be never. Quiet and bookish, she’d be called a bluestocking wallflower if she were English.

Captain Jack Andrews lost his love of the sea long ago and he doesn’t deserve to find the love of his life. Especially not with someone as stunning and kind as Emilia. When she saves his life, he wonders how she could ever think herself plain. If it were his place in life, he’d show her just how fascinatingly beautiful she is. But it isn’t. How long can he resist those tempting lips, soft smile, and heartfelt words? And what will her father, the Earl of Dumfries, do if Jack doesn’t?

This is a Christmas novella that will introduce you to the heartfelt series, A Laird to Love.

Lady Emilia is sitting on the beach in December feeling sad that all her sisters and cousins are in love, whilst she is alone. She is praying for love, when a ship emerges from the mist, clearly in distress. She rushes to the lighthouse and rings the bell and lights the lamp, before rowing out to assist. She rescues several sailors including the very handsome Captain Jack Andrews.

By the time they reach the beach, Emilia is shivering. The captain carries her back to the castle, keeping her talking to make sure she doesn’t lose consciousness. Hours later they meet by chance in the kitchen and Jack is mesmerised by Emilia’s beauty.

Can they resist each other?

Christmastide With My Captain is available on Amazon, currently priced at 99p in Kindle format. This is a nice light short romantic Christmas read. Very quick to read.

Taming a Savage Gentleman by Tammy Andresen

I have received a free e-copy of the book Taming a Savage Gentleman by Tammy Andresen to review.

Taming a Savage Gentleman by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

Tom Maddox would never marry. He’s the second son, the spare, and he prides himself on living his life without the confines of society.

Baroness Segrave needs a husband for society’s sake but she’d prefer he have no opinion at all. Which is why the Earl of Loudoun seems the ideal choice. With no fortune and a drinking habit, he should allow her to keep running her estate while living off the allowance she’d give him. But Loudoun proves to be both drunk and foolish. Suddenly a husband who is strong, capable, and appreciative of her gifts gains merit in her eyes. A man like Tom Maddox.

But how can she convince Tom that he should consider marriage and give up his carefree bachelorhood? Because no matter what anyone else believes, she’d rather the love of a gentleman than a lord.

This is book 5 of 6 in the Taming the Heart series set in 1860.

Tom Maddox, 2nd son of Lord Maddox enjoys working as chief officer aboard The White Lady, although his father wishes him to settle into the family shipyard business. However Tom likes his single carefree life. On this trip sailing from London to Scotland, in addition to the usual cargo, there are 3 passengers – Dowager Baroness Segrave, her daughter Lady Flora Baroness Segrave and the Earl of Loudoun, who is courting Lady Flora.

Tom is attracted to Lady Flora and is annoyed by the drunken Earl’s rudeness to her. As they walked the deck, Loudoun angrily tries to grab Flora’s arm, causing her to unbalance and fall overboard. Tom jumps in and saves her. But Flora is too cold and Tom knows she needs skin to skin contact to warm up to survive. He convinces her mother that this is essential and that she can chaperone without Flora being compromised.

A storm is brewing and the ship heads to find harbour on an island. As the ship lurches, Flora’s mother is sent flying across the cabin and Flora goes to tell Tom that her mother is injured. At the same time the ship hits a rock. They take the row boats to shore, but mutiny is about to break out as the crew blame Flora for distracting Tom although he couldn’t have seen the rock.

Flora realises that she doesn’t want to marry the drunken Earl after all. She wants Tom but on what terms?

Taming a Savage Gentleman is available on Amazon, currently priced at £2.40 in Kindle format. This is a nice light romance story.
