The Earl Takes All by Lorraine Heath is the second novel in the Hellions of Havisham. Heath made me weep, had me giggling aloud, pulling my hair out in frustration and swooning. The Earl Takes It All offered a unique twist, delightful characters, humor, tears and a swoon-worthy romance.

‘Til Death Do Us Part by Amanda Quick is a standalone historical romantic suspense with delightful characters and a Whodunit that kept me flipping the pages. Amanda Quick (Jayne Ann Krentz) has long been a favorite author and an auto buy for me. Her richly detailed stories always deliver and ‘Til Death Do Us Part was an exceptional mystery.
Against a Brightening Sky by Jaime Lee Moyer is the last book in the Delia Martin trilogy. A wonderful historical murder-mystery trilogy set around the 1900’s in San Francisco wrapped in paranormal elements. While each of the books shares a particular case, I recommend reading them in order due to the progress of the main characters. Against A Brightening Sky delivered a dark mystery weaved with Russian history that quickly held me captive.
Garden of Lies by Amanda Quick offered up a historical romance wrapped in a murder mystery filled with twist, turns and plenty of heat.
The Warrior’s Prize by Claire Delacroix is the fourth and last book in the True Loves Brides series. Once again, I chose to listen to the audiobook narrated by the lovely Saskia Maarleveld. Her lilt is perfect for the narration and her voice just pulls me into this story. The Warrior’s Prize ended up being my favorite book in the series.
The Bride Behind the Curtain by Darcie Wilde is the first in the Regency Makeover a trilogy surrounding Helene Fitzgerald, Madelene Valmeyer, and Adele Edmundson. Three women have no intention of remaining wallflowers. Aided by the notorious novelist, Deborah Sewell, they form the Wallflower Pact. The Bride Behind the Curtain introduces us to Adele and I found it to be a quick, delightful introduction to the trilogy.
Happily Bedded Bliss by Tracy Anne Warren is the second novel in her Regency series The Rakes of Cavendish Square.
