From the Author
The Culpepper misses are truly some of my favorite heroines, and because they've been so popular with my readers, when one asked me to put the first three books into a bundle, I couldn't say no! TO LOVE A RECKLESS LORD takes you on an emotional romantic romp with Brooke, Blythe, and Brette as they struggle to find true love. Freddie, their Welsh corgi, makes several appearances, and you'll also get a hint as to who Blaike's and Blaire's sweethearts will be!
Brooke: Wagers Gone Awry by Collette Cameron The Misses Culpepper...sisters & cousins who live on the dairy farm that was owned by the father of the oldest Miss Culpepper & her sister. Upon the father's death the farm is inherited by a distant relative who becomes their guardian. This guardian has no use for the girls or the farm & "allows" them to live there with Brooke, the oldest, in charge & their only allowance being half of what the dairy brings in (which isn't much).
Brooke Culpepper, the oldest of the Culpepper misses, loves running the household & the farm. She doesn't like the fact that females cannot inherit property & she is at the mercy of a distant relative. Thankfully, he doesn't want anything to do with the farm or the girls which allows them to live somewhat in peace. Well, except for the fact that they barely have enough money to live on. Each of the girls does something to supplement their income, sewing, music lessons, etc and their loyal servants continue to work for them without pay.
Heath, the Earl of Ravensdale, a confirmed rogue wins a dairy farm in a game of cards. Not something a man about town has any real interest in so he decides he will check the property out & put it up for sale. After traveling to the farm in horrendous weather he is none to happy when he arrives & finds 5 women living there.
An old dog, undeniable attraction & a series of loyal servants "trying" to help, an improper proposal & wagers going the wrong way can this couple find a happily ever after? Will the winner of the bet hold true to their end of the bargain?
I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review....I absolutely LOVED this book!!! Collette Cameron has the unique ability to put you in the characters shoes. She makes excellent use of first person...especially with the little "thoughts" each character has (these cracked me up!). Along with the wager between Brooke & Heath that involves Freddy, the dog, had me laughing & yelling out loud. She also sets up the next story with the some of the secondary characters & it's going to be explosive. Anxiously waiting for the next story!
Blythe: Schemes Gone Amiss Watch out London! The Culpepper Misses have arrived at the dismay of Blythe Culpepper. Having arrived in London with her sister, brother-in-law & cousins Blythe is being introduced to the ton when she’d much rather be in the country and away from a very annoying Marquis. The man sets off her temper like no other, if there was only a way to avoid the man but alas, he is her brother-in-law’s best friend so he’ll always be a presence. Unless she can get through this season & retire to the country as she has no aspirations to wed. Until she meets a gentleman who could possibly change her plans. That is until she overhears a title grabbing “lady” & her mother plot to trap Tristan into marriage. Will this be the catalyst that has Blythe realizing exactly what those fireworks mean?
Tristan, Marquis of Leventhorpe, has led a very controlled life. Something from his childhood haunts him still & he avoids commitment of any kind. Which is soon tested by the fiery Blythe Culpepper, sister-in-law to his best friend. Whenever they are together the room vibrates with electricity. A long time enemy threatens Blythe’s safety which is the catalyst that makes Tristan realize what she means to him.
As one man’s stupidity, an enemy & title grabbing schemers will Blythe & Tristan realize what they mean to each other? Can Tristan let go of the past in order to be happy?
Another hit by the extremely talented Collette Cameron that will have you laughing & crying all at the same time. Her wit combined with the strength of her characters will draw you in & not let you go. Looking forward to her next installment to see which Culpepper Miss has me laughing out loud.
Brette: Intentions Gone Astray What could the Culpepper Misses get into now? With Collette Cameron's witty sense of humor and the Culpepper's penchant for getting into mishaps one can only imagine what troubles Brette finds. However, I wasn't prepared for the bombshell that threatens everything Brette thought she knew.
I admired the strength and straight-forwardness with which Brette handles her situation; not so much the way she handles Alexander Hawksworth and their mutual feelings. But I do have to hand it to Alex, "Hawk", in his determination to prove to Brette they belong together (and the way he handled his grandmother - BRAVO!).

This is a three book set. I actually read book one and enjoyed it so much that I immediately bought the set and read books 2 and 3. Brooke, her sister Brette, and their cousins Blythe, Blaike and Blaire live on a struggling dairy farm that was previously owned by Brooke's father. Upon his death, due to law, women can not inherit, so the estate goes to a distant relative who allows them to live there as long as they pay 1/2 of the farm's meager income to him. Brooke:Wagers Gone Awry. Brooke and family learn that their relative, who is also their guardian, has lost the farm in a wager. The new owner, the Earl of Ravensdale, decides to sell the farm, so he drops by unannounced to try to determine what he should ask for it. He is very surprised to find 5 women living there, and sparks and fun begin to fly. Blythe:Schemes Gone Amiss. Upon the marriage of Brooke, the family goes to London so the girls can have a Season. However, Blythe is not interested in marriage or London. She wants to stay on the farm, but is reluctantly dragged to London. Once there, she begins to see a different side of the Marquis of Leventhorpe, Ravensdale's friend, whom she had previously met at the farm, and to whom she had taken an immediate dislike. Brette:Intentions Gone Astray. Brette is enjoying the season, but then devastating information comes to light that changes everything.
I laughed a lot while reading these books. My favorite character, however, was Freddy, the elderly, almost blind dog who still thought he could - and should - be herding sheep.
This is the first set of books I ever read written by Collette Cameron. I do love regency romance novels and Ms. Cameron writes some of the best. The stories are lighthearted entertainment with humor that made me laugh out loud more than once. I read all three books in one setting and they were well worth a sleepless night. Highly recommended for all regency romance lovers.
What a great collection! Absolutely great characters with many laugh out loud moments in all three books! 5 beautiful blond young women abandoned by their guardian on their dairy farm. Romance, love, and just plan laughing in the face of the ton. I think these are books you can come back to and read again and still enjoy them greatly!
I loved the first book, and jumped on the anthology including books 1-3. While it's true that the ultimate romantic couple was telegraphed plainly, the twist and turns on the way, the villains, the manners of the ton, etc, were all well described. The writing was exceptional! I actually laughed out loud a number of times, and several important plot elements really did leave you in suspense.
This was a cute, light read that I enjoyed very much. I found the heroines entertaining, the plots lighthearted and well-paced, and the heros strong and resolute. A very pleasant way to spend a few hours
The 3 stories told in To Love A Reckless Lord are fun, witty and completely entertaining. From beginning to end, the characters are captivating. The heroines are strong and intelligent women and their heroes are strong and tenderly written. I enjoyed reading about the Culpepper family and look forward to reading about the remaining two members of this entertaining family.
