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...

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

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
