Book Tour for A Touch of Passion by Bronwen Evans

In the latest Disgraced Lords novel from USA Today bestselling author Bronwen Evans, a vivacious thrill seeker clashes with her dutiful defender—causing irresistible sparks to fly.

ndependent and high-spirited, Lady Portia Flagstaff has never been afraid to take a risk, especially if it involves excitement and danger. But this time, being kidnapped and sold into an Arab harem is the outcome of one risk too many. Now, in order to regain her freedom, she has to rely on the deliciously packaged Grayson Devlin, Viscount Blackwood, a man who despises her reckless ways—and stirs in her a thirst for passion.

After losing his mother and two siblings in a carriage accident years ago, Grayson Devlin promised Portia’s dying brother that he’d always watch over his wayward sister. But having to travel to Egypt to rescue the foolhardy girl has made his blood boil. Grayson already has his hands full trying to clear his best friend and fellow Libertine Scholar of a crime he didn’t commit. Worse still, his dashing rescue has unleashed an unforeseen and undesired consequence: marriage. Now it’s more than Portia he has to protect . . . it’s his battered heart.

ARC Review of Lady Sarah's Sinful Desires by Sophie Barnes

The first in a new series, The Secrets at Thorncliff Manor, Lady Sarah's Sinful Desires is a lovely story of a young lady who makes a dreadful mistake and is willing to sacrifice herself in marriage to a nasty little man to save her family from scandal.  Sarah's family goes to Thorncliff Manor, a large estate that the widowed owner turned into a resort where the aristocrats go on holiday, to meet the man her father and stepmother insist that she marry.  Sarah is willing to go along with the plan because she has two younger sisters that still have not come out yet.  Then she meets Christopher at Thorncliff and everything starts to unravel.  They are instantly attracted to each other, but each has been burned in love before and are afraid to follow their hearts.  This is a wonderful love story with two stong characters and a great sub-story that I think will be the next book in the series.  Sarah's writing is beautifully lyrical and emotionally satisfying.  Do not miss this book.

ARC Review of The Duke of Andelot by Delilah Marvelle

A wonderful ending to The School of Gallantry Series. This was my favorite. Not only did you get to see how life began for Therese, Mistress of the School of Gallantry, you see how she survives and even thrives in the face of truly horrific life events. The love of her life is Gerard, The Duke of Andelot who she meets on the side of the road in France just as the French Revolution is getting chaotic and out of control. Gerard is trying to save his Godfather, the King of France and Therese is trying to get to Paris to become a famous actress. They make an agreement to be lovers and then she will spy for him and get him whatever she can to help him save the king. What follows is a truly incredible journey into the heart of two people and the country that they love. The descriptions and events of the French Revolution are almost impossible to imagine but Delilah tells this story with great historical accuracy and heartwrenching emotion. This book takes place over 30 years and proves that true love can conquer all!!! I have read all of Delilah's books and have loved them all and this one is beautifully written and takes you on an emotional rollercoaster that you will not soon forget.

Review of The Elusive Lord Everhart by Vivienne Lorret

The first book in The Rakes of Fallow Hall is a winner!!! I love anything Viviene Lorret writes!!  This is the story of Calliope Croft, hopeless romantic and Gabriel Ludlow, Viscount Everhart, Rake Extradonarire.  The book begins with Calliope in a carriage reading an old love letter that was written to her five years ago.  She has kept it all these years as a reminder that there was someone out there who might have loved her.  Her whole life changed after she received it, she turned down a suitor for her hand and has never met anyone who could live up to the emotions and love that was expressed in that letter.
The letter was not signed.   She thought she was special, then six more letters appeared in Society written by the same author who they name Casanova.  She has always kept her letter a secret, not wanting anyone to know she was crazy enough to turn down a marriage proposal for an anonymous love letter.
She and Gabriel have met before, they have mutual friends.  What she doesn't know is that Gabriel had been secretly in love with her for years and he is Casanova!!
When they are stuck together with friends at the same house, sparks start to fly between them.  I do not do spoilers   in my reviews so you will have to read this book to find out what happens next.  Believe me, it is worth every minute of your time.  Vivienne knows how to write a plot that will keep you  turning the pages long into the night.  Her characters are stong, intelligent and a blast to get to know.  I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a classic historical romance novel.  Cannot wait for the next one.

ARC Review of Royally Ever After by Loretta Chase

Two great short stories by Loretta Chase.  Lord Lovedon's Duel was classic Loretta, great plot, strong heroine, rakish hero and very funny and a joy to read. The second story The Jilting of Lord Rothwick was more intense and emotional but was an awesome short read.  Loretta is the best, and I never miss any of her books.  Cannot wait for Dukes Prefer Blondes.
