Escaping His Grace (Gentlemen of Temptation #2) by Kristin Vayden


 

An Oldie but Goodie :)

Well, it is not that old, but if you are the kind of reader that is always on top of the new releases than perhaps it is a little.

This 2019 title by Kristin Vayden was an outstanding historical romance! 

The first book I read by this author was perfect for the store. We have a few historical romance lovers and a few of the older ladies don't love the more 'saucy' titles. So, although I liked the book, it lacked a little passion for me. That is not the case with this series at all! I am very lucky to have met this awesome human being and that she told me as much... I would have missed out in an amazing series and a fabulous Scottish man otherwise. 

I don't ever tell you how to read your books, but just this once... AUDIOBOOK it! It is that verb? no? Oh well, I am making it one for the sake of this argument :) AUDIOBOOK it!!! The narrator for this series does a great job both with the voice and the accent. 

I will not tell you about the story, I suck at doing that without giving the plot away, so the blurb is below. But I will tell you this: Miss Miranda is a delight! someone everyone would want as a friend. And Viscount Kilpatrick had a charming and engaging personality. The banter and flirtatious relationship between the two was both sweet and passionate. What else could a historical romance lover want?

Perfection! An easy 5 out of 5 stars! 

Blurb:

From an elite London gentleman's club to a genteel Scottish estate, scandal becomes a family affair in this dazzling tale of deception and unexpected love...

Miss Miranda is not really a Miss, exactly. Nor is her name Miranda, exactly. But to escape her tyrannical duke of a father, changes were required. Now in the Scottish countryside, employed by her new brother-in-law's unsuspecting friend, Heathcliff Marston, Viscount Kilpatrick, Miranda feels safe—except for the danger of falling in love. And the Viscount's broad shoulders and seductive brogue are no help at all. Certainly, a peer of the realm would never entertain a dalliance with the help... And definitely not kiss the help... Except this Viscount isn't a typical peer of the realm...

Between managing Temptations and his newly acquired ward, the last thing Heathcliff needs is investigators inexplicably hounding him about the whereabouts of some duke's runaway daughter. At least he's secured a governess—no doubt a sour woman. Or so he expects, until he meets intriguing Miranda. Now Heathcliff is the one faced with temptation. But there's more to lovely Miranda than meets the eye—a truth that could change the course of all their futures...

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s

Radiant Sin (Dark olympus) by Katee Robert [arc review]

This is sadly, not going to be a very popular review. I adore Katee Robert. But this one just wasn't for me. It wasn't a terrible book or anything like that, it just left me wanting more and very puzzled. Every one of the books in this series follows a certain trope and/or subplot genre. Neon Gods is very much a Greek Mythology retelling;  Electric Idol  has the plus size influencer and the sweet bad boy, it is a very modern contemporary romance;  Wicked Beauty , and my favorite so far has that hunger games/dystopian vibe. Radiant Sin  is a murder mystery. The 'one house'/'one train' style that has always been so popular. Here lies problem number one for me, because I don't like murder mysteries at all. Even on my teen years when I read a lot of mystery it was never those. Problem two- there were way too many characters in that house, and they all got their time on the page making it one very confusing mess. It was very hard to follow at times. I think this
