EARL OF SCANDAL by Mary Gillgannon
Earl of Scandal - Mary Gillgannon

Christian Faraday crashes his horses and curricle into Merrisa's wagon.  Since it is cold out and his one horse is injured she invites him to her home.  Merrisa is not one to hold her tongue and Christian, being an earl, is not used to others saying what they think.  He and Merrisa are attracted  to one another but not in the same class so both think the best thing would be to stay away from the other but scandal follows Christian into the country and Merrisa goes to London to save her brother where Christian must rescue her. 

 

I liked Merrisa.  She is sharp-tongued and feisty and takes on all.  She may be afraid but she knows how to give a set down.  I can see her in my mind going up against the roughest, toughest people.  I chuckled at her as she often bests the rest.  I liked Christian.  He is all the negative things he thinks but Merrisa sees more in him, once she lets her prejudices slide (just a little.)  Merrisa keeps Christian on his toes.  I chuckled as the two of them went after each other.  Elizabeth, Merrisa's sister, is a good foil for her.  Their brother should be kicked where the sun don't shine. 

 

I enjoyed the story.  It moved quickly and was fun.  It shows the hypocrisy of the times.  Keep it discreet and you can do anything.  I like how Merrisa does help Christian with a certain problem.  I would read this author again.

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.

Clean Regency Romance: Not So Sweet Maria (Sisters By Marriage Book 1) - Jessica Spencer

Clean Regency Romance: Not So Sweet Maria (Sisters By Marriage Book 1) by Jessica Spencer Lady Maria has gotten a bad hand from the start. Her parents die and leave her an orphan and others do take care of her but it's not a warm welcome. Later in life she finally agrees to marry so others will stop asking her. love all the mysteries surrounding her and her inheritance. Others also are not so truthful either and you wonder how they will spend the rest of their days, never knowing each other's real names. Lots of action, mysteries and struggles to survive the scams. Enjoyed this book and can't wait to read the next in the series. Love the design work and what's incorporated into them and how. Received this review copy from the author via Goodreads and this is my honest opinion.

LILIANA'S LETTER by Alina K. Field
Liliana's Letter - Alina K. Field Liliana's Letter - Alina K. Field
  Good story of Liliana helping Katie to find the right husband. Lord Grigsby sees Liliana and hopes she is not the one destined to marry his wastrel nephew. They are attracted to one another but Liliana has a secret in her past that will bring scandal on anyone who marries her.

I liked these characters. I liked that they were older than most Regency romance characters. I enjoyed the story. I was glad that Grigsby did not worry about Liliana's past. He was persistent to have her as his wife. I loved the ending.

SUMMER PASSIONS by Michelle McMasters
Summer Passions (Seasons of Love) - Michelle Mcmaster

 

3 short stories starting with CUPID’S DART.  Shooting the Marquess of St. Clair in the leg with an arrow was not part of Daphne’s plan.  She just wanted to beat him at something.  Now she must pay for her sin by nursing him back to health.  I liked Daphne.  I could see her eyes rolling constantly as he teased her and as she watched the parade of ton women visit him.  I could feel his need to harass her by being outrageous.  The story was too short and I felt like I was dropped into the middle of it when things come to a head between Daphne and the Marquess.  I would like to see this developed into a novella or full length novel.

 

Next is LADY ASHTON TAKES A LOVER.  Often left alone by her husband, Clarissa finally accedes to her friend’s advice to taka a lover for the summer.  Clarissa meets an Adonis at the ball but he disappears.  Going into the garden he reappears and becomes her lover while her husband is knocking at the front door.  I liked this story.  Clarissa takes matters into her own hands.  She finds the lover she wants and appeases her neglecting husband. 

 

The final story THE WEDDING PARTY has Lady Althea Ramsay taking a letter from her late brother to his friend the Duke of Wakefield asking for help.  Invited to the same wedding as her former fiancé, she wants Wakefield to go as her escort.  He attends as her fiancé and puts a plan in action to show the former fiancé what he has lost.  I enjoyed this story.  I liked Althea.  She seems a mouse but has a backbone.  I liked the scenes between her and Wakefield.  They are an evenly matched couple. 

 

I look forward to reading the other seasons in this series.
