good book and characters
A Perfect Gentleman: A Novel - Candace Camp

Graeme woke up to his cousin’s dog as well as his cousin James. Then James said there was some juicy gossip to be told his mother had even got up early to come to Graeme’s. Graeme had married Abigail to save his family estate, pay off his fathers debts. Graeme had been willing to do his duty by his family even giving up Laura who was the woman he already loved. But Thursten Price- Abigail's father hadn’t left anything to chance and used blackmail to make sure Abigaila and  Graeme married and Abigail knew nothing about it. Thursten had poorly treated Abigail most her life.  Abigail thought she had married a kind thoughtful gentleman but on the wedding night he made it clear he would only be Abigail's husband in name only that she had brought herself a title and husband in name only and walked away from her. The next morning Graeme had regretted how he had treated Abigail when he went to her hotel he found out she had checked out that morning to return to N Y. Then James told Graeme that Abigail was now back in London. Resentment and anger long buried stirred in Graeme. No one seemed to know why Abigail had returned. She had been quite successful in society in N Y. Abigail is now twenty eight - it had been ten years since she left to return to the states- and wants to have a child. If Graeme doesn’t want to father said baby she wants a divorce and she will marry someone else who is willing to make her a mother. Graeme’s grandmother wants him to come to London and deal with his wife, take her to his home. Graeme and James leave to return to London together . Graeme finds out on his return to London  he finds out his wife Abigail- who has grown into a beautiful woman- is sought after by many men. Then Graeme and ABigail see each other at a ball later they meet and Abigail tells Graeme why she returned. It had been a slight scandal when Abigail had left for the states the day after she was married and Graeme didn't want any more scandal of a divorce  he was the Earl now. Graeme agreed to live with Abigail as husband and wife l until she got pregnant and she had agreed to raise the child in England. Abigail had begun to get secret letters that have clues to Graeme’s father and his debt. As time goes on Abigail and Graeme and really get to know each other.  

I enjoyed this book , I liked the pace of this. As well as the plot. I loved how Abigail had the strength to face Graeme and let him know her hearts desire. I liked there was some mystery in this story. At first I didn’t like Graeme at all he never gave Abigail a chance  to tell her side of marrying Graeme .Instead he just believed she was as bad as her father. But he did grow on me after Abigail had returned to London. I love how it took time for Graeme and Abigail to grow feelings for each other. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.

A WINTER SCANDAL by Candace Camp
A Winter Scandal - Candace Camp

A baby is found in the manger in the church where Thea's brother is vicar. She goes after the man she thinks is the baby's father who turns out is not but she's involved in the mystery of who left the baby and why. As she gets to know Lord Morecombe she throws conventions to the wind as does he. They may both think they are focused on the baby but, as anyone with a pair of eyes sees, they are more interested in each other. The baby brings out sides to them that they would never have discovered by following convention.

I liked this story. I liked Thea and Gabriel. They make a good couple. She does not let him mow her over and he discovers there is more to a woman than companionship in bed. The mystery is good as Gabriel must unravel the past and realize his mistakes. I plan on reading the rest of the series.

A Perfect Gentleman
A Perfect Gentleman: A Novel - Candace Camp

' A Perfect Gentleman' by Candace Camp is the story of Graeme and Abby.  
Ms. Camp is one of my favorite authors so as soon as I saw her name with this book I had to have it.
So happy to say that this book did not disappoint!  I could not put the book down so I ended up reading it until the early hours of the morning....still worth the book-hangover!
Graeme and Abby story actually started about 10 years ago when they were married.  Graeme was pretty much blackmailed in to marring Abby by her father.  Abby knew her father was very controlling and a harsh business man but did not have a clue what her father was doing to Graeme.  So right after the wedding Graeme made it clear that he did not want her nor is she every to hold his heart.  That he is in love with someone else. Graeme also told her some of what her father had done.  Graeme then walked out.  Well Abby being a young 18 year old was heart broken and she up and left London.  Abby headed back to NY to make a life for herself.  Now 10 years later she is back in London and Graeme isn't happy about it.  He at first tries to talk her into leaving and going back but it does not work.  Abby has chanced a lot in physical and internal appears which has made it hard for Graeme to resist her. But when Abby starts to get notes telling her there is more going on to her marriage 10 years ago than she knows so goes forward to find out...which puts her in danger. Can Graeme get past his feeling he thought he had for Abby and move forward with the new feelings that are coming out?  Can he help keep Abby safe when someone is out to hurt her?
This was another great story by Ms. Camp!

Enraptured - Candace Camp Enraptured - Candace Camp

Violet’s mentor had been her Uncle Lionel. But Violet’s uncle had died and she was now on her way to the Earl of Mardorin to try to be given the chance to take her uncle’s place as the antiquarian before others got the chance to go after the position. Only Lionel had accepted Violet’s abilities. Then the carriage Violet was in was stopped by thieves but Coll came to Violet’s rescue and ran the men off who had stopped the carriage. Violet did not offer even a thank you was actually rude. Coll would have been happy with a thank you then decided to take a kiss for a thank you, then he toke another. Violet was shocked then ashamed she responded to Coll Violet is from England and Coll is Scottish from the Highlands. Coll manages his brother in laws estate who is the Earl that  Violet is trying to see. The ruins are on his estate. There is a rumor of lost treasure hidden on the estate or the estate across the loch [ lake]. The rumors of hidden treasure are putting Violet in danger Coll is determined to keep Violet safe. Attracted to each other but Violet says she is not going to slip again as when Coll claimed his payment. But also Coll has no desire to travel the world and Violet wants to go wherever the ruins are being found.

I didn’t love this but I didn’t hate this story. I loved the character of Coll He is really a sweetie as far as I am concerned. Violet kinda irritated me but I also understand she is independent but that doesn’t mean you have to be rude. The uncle may have let her do mostly anything she wanted to. But she does eventually loosen up with Coll and learns to Coll. I did like the ins and outs of this story.

I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
