ONOSurrender-cover-e1549591806922After one passionate night a decade ago, Valentine Fairfax, Duke of Eastleigh, never forgot Isabelle, the intelligent, witty and forbidden daughter of a head of college at Oxford. However, since suffering a disastrous marriage to an unfaithful wife, the duke has vowed never to succumb to temptation again. Until the day he discovers his friend’s governess is the one woman who still haunts his dreams.

Once penniless, Isabelle Cortland has finally saved enough money to finance a school for impoverished girls.

Not even for one night of surrender…

Duke of Ice CoverEveryone Nicholas Bateman ever loved has died. Except Violet Caulfield, which must mean he never loved her.

Eight years after she threw him over to marry a viscount, Nick is a widowed duke who prefers isolation. When a friend convinces him to leave his lair of self-imposed solitude, he considers taking another wife, provided she agrees to his terms: no emotional attachment of any kind.

Now widowed, Lady Violet Pendleton hopes for a second chance with the man she’s always loved. But she isn’t prepared for the desolation in his soul or the animosity he still bears toward her. Despite those obstacles, it’s clear their passion hasn’t dimmed. However, the heat between them isn’t enough to melt the Duke of Ice, and this time Violet may find herself the jilted party. Can love, once so tragically lost, finally be found?

My Thoughts:

Second Chances Love Story!

Reviewed: December 26, 2017

I loved this well written second chances romance. This entire series has been wonderful to date.
I have read them all and anxiously look forward to each one as they are published.

When Violet married a Viscount instead of Nick he was sure she was simply a fortune hunter. That was not the reason she threw him over. It wasn’t her choice. Her father, who didn’t approve of Nick arranged for her to marry the Viscount and when he found her unchaste he treated her with cruelty.
Now she is widowed and so is Nick. He prefers to be left alone to his own devices. He is now a Duke and tries to avoid all things associated with the ton.

Can these two overcome the obstacles of their past and fall into a lasting love?

Second chances are a very poignant style of romantic stories.
I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy is inevitable but can they get past what happened before?

I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the author to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

A lady should be the image of elegance and calm, but those words have never applied to Mercy, Duchess of Romsey. A widow and mother, Mercy is lonely and floundering to keep the estate afloat. When she discovers the existence of Leopold Randall, her husband’s estranged cousin, Mercy immediately offers to help him locate his missing siblings if he helps her return the estate to order.

Leopold has returned to Hampshire for only one purpose—to learn the fate of his missing siblings. Unfortunately, the current duchess is clueless and out of her depth. Her struggle tugs at Leopold’s sense of duty and her bold nature tempts him unbearably. When Leopold discovers their lives are forever entwined, he vows to protect Mercy and her innocent son.
