Always the bridesmaid coverAlways the bridesmaid and never the bride – but not if the Duke of Axwick has anything to do with it…

Miss Tabitha Chesworth is walking down the aisle for the third time, but never as the bride. Frustrated with being passed over, there’s nothing that a well-born lady can do about it. But at four and twenty, she’s starting to worry that this is her lot in life – until a fiery encounter with the Duke of Axwick.

Richard St Maur, sixteenth in his line, has sworn an oath never to marry. He’s seen the damage of the male Axwick line, and he won’t bring another gambler or drunkard into the world. Of course, that doesn’t mean he can’t have a little fun and there’s no one he’d like to play with more than Miss Tabitha Chesworth. He’s determined to have her. She’s determined to hold out until a ring is on her finger. Sparks fly as this repeat bridesmaid takes on one of the most determined men of the ton.

Whose offer will eventually be accepted? Will the Duke of Axwick find his way into Tabitha’s bed – or her heart?

This full length novel is a steamy Regency romance with a happily ever after, no cliffhangers, and is part of a series that can be read in any order.

Married to the rakeWallflowers and rakes do seldom mix well.
Miss Chloe Larkin is completely assured of that. Especially when said rake is a member of the Waverly family—the people responsible for a feud that has been ongoing since practically the dawn of time.
But he comes offering a deal…
The centuries-old feud between the Larkins and the Waverlys has taken its toll. Brook Waverly wants this fight solved. Now. His ageing father cannot take much more of the stress and he’s determined the problem shall be resolved before he comes to inherit.
So he needs her help…
Chloe is distrustful of Mr.Waverly—and rightly so. Not only is he her lifelong enemy but he has a reputation that would make the most experienced of women blush. And boy does he make this wallflower blush! However, she has little interest in continuing the silly feud and, with her little brother set to inherit one day and her father’s failing health, the sooner it is all over, the better.
Working with the handsome, and far too charming Mr.Waverly to get their fathers to come to an agreement is…interesting. Especially when he seems to be less concerned with ending the feud and more interested in her. Can she really trust him or is this just another way for his family to get their revenge on hers?

If you love enemies to lovers and rakes with a heart of gold, buy Married to the Rake today!

My Thoughts:

This is a very well written book with a bit of a Romeo and Juliet scenario without the tragic ending,
This is one of the best Samantha Holt books I have read and I have read a great many.
This is a very quick read in a sweet/clean genre.
I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for plot, story line and characterization.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Waiting for one’s fiancé to set a date is never fun. Especially when it has now officiallymarried to the lord been years. Particularly when one is a veritable wallflower with little chance of anything better coming along. More so when said fiancé’s brother is paying particular attention to one’s life and causing all sorts of confusing emotions.

All Miss Augusta Snow wants is for Henry to return home and set the date. If that means trying as hard as she can to break out of her quiet temperament to gain his attention, then she’ll do her best.

But it seems she’s attracted the wrong brother’s attention…

The brooding Miles Stanton, Viscount Ashwick has always been quietly fascinating to her. She knows he was a little less than a gentleman in his past but she cannot help be intrigued now that he is showing interest in her wellbeing.

He only intended to protect his brother’s interests…

Miles always had a soft spot for Gus. However, everyone knew she was meant for his brother and all he wants is for her to be happy–especially with the specters of his past hanging over him and guaranteeing to bring trouble. He has to protect Augusta from doing something silly and somehow persuade Henry to cease being a fool and return home.

All the while ignoring his feelings for her…

Augusta’s plans to show Henry that she is not just some dull wallflower seemed doomed to fail and now Miles is back in her life and behaving…well…strangely. She cannot help but wonder if she has been hanging her hopes on the wrong brother this whole time.

My Thoughts:

Miles always had a soft spot for Gus. However, everyone knew she was meant for his brother and all he wants is for her to be happy all the while ignoring his feelings for her.

Both Miles and Augusta grew up caring a great deal for each other. Miles thought because he had a less than stellar past that he was not worthy of Augusta’s attention. Only his younger brother deserves her. Therefore when his love of the young lady becomes apparent he is determined to squelch it.
This is a bit of a second chances title. I really liked this newest Wallflower Brides title by Samantha Holt.
I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for story line and character development.
I received a complimentary ARC of this book from the author via Booksprout. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Married to the Earl CoverGoing from vivacious society belle to widow wallflower can leave a lady wanting…

Joanna Lockhart is trapped in a mire of grief and boredom. Still recovering from the sudden death of her husband, the beautiful widow is tired of being treated like a fragile porcelain doll. But when a severe illness nearly claims her life, Joanna finds the perfect outlet for her natural vitality—a charity.

Unfortunately, her sudden interest in all things philanthropic is marred by the presence of one Ambrose Creassey. For some unknown reason, this handsome cad has decided to cast aside his reputation as a rake, and take up the mantel of charitable patron.

As the Earl of Newhaven, Ambrose has enjoyed his life of delicious debauchery. But recently the earl has hungered for more noble pursuits. A charity seems to be the perfect outlet for his newfound desire to be more than just a rake. And of course, he doesn’t mind the aid of a beautiful, well-connected woman like Joanna… Especially when he cannot resist riling her a time or two.

After all, she does rise so beautifully to the challenge.

Focusing on their work is harder than either of them thought. There’s no denying the attraction between them, but is Ambrose truly prepared to cast aside his hedonistic history? And even if he does, is Joanna ready for a new love?
