"Everything Regency fans love." -Publishers Weekly Starred Review of Miss Hillary Schools a Scoundrel

He's the Talk of the Town
The whole town is tittering about Baron Sebastian Thorne having been jilted at the altar. Every move he makes ends up in the gossip columns. Tired of being the butt of everyone's jokes, Sebastian vows to restore his family's reputation no matter what it takes.

Feted by the crème of society, the beautiful widow Lady Prestwick is a vision of all that is proper. But Helena is no angel, and when Sebastian uncovers her dark secret, he's quick to press his advantage. In order to keep her hard-won good name, Helen will have to make a deal with the devil. But she's got some tricks up her sleeves to keep this notorious rogue on his toes...

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, Romantic and Fun! October 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
May 1819.

Baron Sebastian Thorne is not a happy man. The woman he planned to marry has been “stolen" by his best friend, the Earl of Ellis. In order to drown his sorrows, he is deep in his cups from drinking. Having sent his driver home earlier, he decides to walk home. Bad decision! He is immediately attacked, beaten and robbed in the streets of Whitechapel by footpads and left unconscious.

Lady Helena Prestwick a widow from Aldmist Fell in Scotland, is in London searching for her four sisters, Cora, Pearl, Gracie and Lavinia. Helena and her sisters were very young when their mother died and their father turned to drink. As the oldest, Helena did all she could to care for her sisters until the day her father literally sold her to her husband so her father could get money for his needs. Now, that Helena is a widow, she is determined to find her sisters and get the family back together. She fears that they are working in a brothel. So, she and her trusted friend, Fergus, are out most nights searching the brothels.

Lucky for Sebastian, Helena happens upon him the night he is beaten and takes him home to nurse his wounds. Grateful for her help and attracted to her as well, he agrees to assist her in her search for her sisters.

She soon finds her sister, Lavinia, who lives as the courtesan of a wealthy and kind man who loves her and wants to marry her. Her youngest sister, Gracie, is living with Lavinia. Cora is married to a butcher and the mother of several children. Pearl has not been found.

As Sebastian and Helena become more immeshed into one another’s lives, their attraction grows and romance blossoms.

The family members and other characters in the story are all so very well written. I could just picture each of them perfectly. I think readers will truly enjoy this story of strength, love and determination.

In Bed With a Rogue by Samantha Grace
Historical Romance- Sept. 2nd, 2014
4 stars

Sebastian Thorne is a Baron that has been humiliated by being left at the altar by his fiancee. He is embarrassed but mostly worried about his family. Now that he has disgraced his family again his sister’s chances of finding a suitable match are greatly reduced. Sebastian loves his sister and will do anything to protect her. He knows he needs to find another eligible woman of status that will give him and his family respectability. When he discovers the lovely and aloof widow, Lady Helena Trestwick in the shady area of London he is curious, especially when she is responsible for saving his life.

Helena has a secret. She is from a humble background. And trying to find a sister that may be trapped in a brothel. But to reveal her past would ruin her. When Sebastian pursues her and asks her about her nightly outings she fears he is blackmailing her. But Sebastian is concerned about the lady, although he wouldn’t mind her help giving his family entrance into high society. As Helena and Sebastian try to find her missing sister they find also treachery in an unexpected direction. Can they save their reputations or will they risk all for love?

This book will draw you in. At first, I thought Sebastian would be the run-of the-mill rake. But he hides his vulnerability and noble intentions. When Helena is desperate to find her sister he wants to help her, not blackmail her. (Although the rascal doesn’t mind taking advantage and asking her for help with his sister!) As they try to find Helena’s missing sister. The plot thickens and Helena and Sebastian get to know each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Regency lovers will adore IN BED WITH A ROGUE! September 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I love the Regency period, so IN BED WITH A ROGUE, written by Samantha Grace, was perfect for me!
What a charming and fun romance it was, you will love following her two main characters Sebastian Thorne and
Helena Prestwick! I haven't read her first book, in her Rival Rogues series, but it was easy to follow the events
and her other characters present again, in this one. It's the story of Sebastian, who was jilted at the altar, and everywhere
he went, he was the talk of the ton, a scandal for his family. He only wanted the best, especially for his sister Eve,
a charming young lady making her Season's debut. Helena, is a young widow, who had been won as a prize, by her late husband, at the age of 16. Being thorn apart, from her family, she will make it her mission to find her sisters...but meanwhile, she will
help the poor and needy at Whitechapel. Will she find them? Since, both want, what's best for their family, Sebastian and Helena
will strike a deal to help each other. Will love be in the air? It's a wonderful love story filled with romance, humor, mystery and scandals!

Format:Kindle Edition
This was one of my 'try a new to me author' grabs and again, I got lucky with an engaging, passionate and well written story that was more than I hope for. I did manage to get a sequel that probably would have been even better if I'd gotten it in the order of the series. Oh well, now I have another one to go back for because trust me, the references to the first story makes me think that it was a delicious scream.

This story opens with Sebastian, Lord Thorne, drowning his sorrows over being the jilted party in a scandalous runaway romance involving his fiancee and his former best friend. His family did not need any new scandal to ostracize it more and in fact, that was the sole reason he was set on marrying in the first place. His father was thought to be mad because he heard voices and spoke to imaginary people even though it was just the fact that a military campaign in Ireland and its atrocities broke him and his sister was jilted at the altar so she is ruined because people are convinced that there was something wrong with her to cause her groom to run. Society loves its scandals and his family has provided them with plenty.
Unfortunately, his luck continues toward the bad. He stumbles out of the seedy pub in Whitechapel and he encounters thieves. He is robbed, beaten and left for dead, but that is when his luck changes because he is saved by an angel. Not a real angel, but a mystery woman who rescues him and leaves him at his home. His befuddled, pain-ridden state doesn't allow him to figure out who she was until much later. But when he does, he proposes a scheme that will benefit both of them and it doesn't hurt that his plan gives him more time to entice his angel to his bed.
