His wicked Embrace by Lauren Smith
What a heartwarming story.
What can a gentleman do when he sees a damsel in distress but save her? Lawrence Russell was helping his brother by watching an auction take place at a brothel It was a run by a ring that the crown was trying to take down who kidnapped and sold women for money. Taking one look at Zehra and Lawrence knew he had to save her from being taken by someone else so he placed the highest bid for her.. Zehra had been living in a nightmare, taken from her home in Persia and held as a slave until she reached London. In the end, some meetings are fated but danger lurks in a man who is looking to take Zehra as his property. Lawrence, always carefree and known to some as a Rouge feels protective of Zehra and she trusts him from the beginning. I loved both of these characters and so enjoyed their story. There are some surprises and intrigue and a wonderful journey!
A Scoundrel at heart by Laura Landon
I sit here as I turned the last page and feel sad. Thomas and Cleora’s story is at and end, but I wanted it to continue! This story melted my heart. Lady Cleora was blinded by an accident a year ago. Lord Thomas Renfrew was terribly disfigured from a fired trying to save his parents and had retreated from society due to his scarred face. Cleora was staying in the country away from danger that lurked near London. Two people who each have their own physical injuries and are drawn to each other. What could be more perfect? Except Cleora may regain her sight, but Thomas could never not get rid of his scars. Filled with suspense and heartfelt emotions, this story will take you on a journey to tug at the heart and have you captivated to the very end!
The Secret Scoundrel by Kristin Gabriel
This was a new author to me but I did enjoy the story. Diana Harwood,, twenty five and firmly on the shelf ( or so she believed) was to become a companion to a lady in India and live out her days. Attending her sister's wedding before she left, she meets Colin Sinclair, Marquess and Viscount Thorne. Colin was a rouge and never thought to attract any lady of substance. As a theft evolves of a stolen vase, Diana and Colin are thrown together to try to solve the mystery. Sometimes fate just has a way of stepping in and taking control. This was a delightful story with a little suspense and of course attraction thrown into the mix!
One Duke or Another by Ella Quinn

A simple decision for her to make you would think!! Since The Duke is thought to have murdered his four previous wives it is imperative that Agaila turn her affections to Guy; Turn the pages to see how this story plays out. You will be caught up in the characters and feel yourself hoping all will be well.
Some of these stories where part of a series for the author but all can be read as a standalone. Prepare yourself to be entertained and wanting to go back and read every book by each author!!
Zehra Darzi’s parents were murdered in Persia, where she was kidnapped and brought to a brothel in England to be sold to the highest bidder, which Samir Al-Zahrani intends to be. Lawrence Russell was on the premises because his younger brother Avery asked him to note of the men present at the auction, and who “bought” women; Avery is with the authorities. The whole situation reminds of a mistake Lawrence had made in the past, and so he bids for Zehra, and wins. Zehra is relieved that Al-Zahrani lost to the handsome man with the red hair. Lawrence might be a rogue, but he is a gentleman, and he is furious at what could have been Zehra’s fate had he not intervened, although he knows Avery will be furious. Lawrence takes Zehra home with him until things can be sorted out; she will be under his protection in the meantime.
HIS WICKED EMBRACE is such a lovely romance! Lawrence is a lusty hero but ever so sweet and compassionate. I loved that there were no miscommunication or misunderstandings, and things proceeded at a swift pace. The addition of the political context was a clever idea by Ms. Smith as it adds another dimension to the story, along with wonderful descriptions of Persia and its traditions. The relationship between Lawrence and Avery is fascinating, as they butt heads while trying to rectify Zehra’s situation without causing a political incident. The gentlemen of the League of Rogues make appearances, and readers unfamiliar with the series can become acquainted with those randy gentlemen while not being lost. I very much appreciated as well that the Rogues’ wives, the Society of Rebellious Ladies, take part in keeping Zehra safe. And Zehra and Lawrence are both so charming and engaging; what an appealing couple they make!
I loved the addition of the few gorgeous pictures which augment the text. HIS WICKED EMBRACE, a sweet and sensual romance with a dash of mystery, has a lovely fairytale quality about it that I enjoyed very much.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
I give 4 ½ stars
The Secret Scoundrel. This pair deserves each other. After a pleasant first meeting, the claws come out for some reason that mystified me. She hears him laugh and assumes he's laughing at her. So later she shoves a flower up his nose and stomps on his foot, hoping it will be swelled up in the morning. He gets even by ransacking her bed chamber. (They are both guests in someone else's house at the time, by the way.) I quit reading when I realized the story was going to continue without either apologizing. Again, not at all romantic to me.
One Duke or Another. I wanted to like this, but neither the hero nor the heroine seemed to have much personality, and the dialogue just did not seem natural. Did not finish.
A Scoundrel at Heart. I'm a Laura Landon fan, and this was the story that convinced me to buy this collection. I can't say it's one of her best. It really started to bother me that no one happens to mention Thomas's scars to Cleo (who is blind) until long after they meet and fall in love. Really? No one gossips about it? No one wants to be helpful? Needless to say, Thomas doesn't want to be honest. And after she finds out about the scars, he's just plain stupid. And the ending was kind of predictable. At least this one was romantic.
