The Singular Mr. Sinclair is a true delight to read! Reformed rakes and silver-tongued rogues make for fine heroes, but there’s something about a slightly awkward hero that just grabs my heart. Lawrence charmed me from the start and made me smile. He isn’t a dashing duke, but rather a self-made man whose position as heir to an earldom is tenuous at best. He’s not someone most ladies would fawn over because he’s not suave or witty, but they’d be missing out because he’s a smart, honorable, kind, loyal, and strong man. He’s also unabashedly head-over-heels for Caroline from the very start and that just made me melt.
Caroline may have grown up in the heart of the ton, but she longs for a life much different than the one laid out for her. She’s determined to see the world and she’ll even flirt with an unsuitable gentleman if it undermines her parents’ plans to marry her off before she comes into her inheritance and can take off on her own. The one thing Caroline never planned for was Lawrence. He needs her help if he’s to fit into society, but there’s something about her brother’s friend that knocks her just slightly off-kilter and she senses that there’s more to him than meets the eye.
The Singular Mr. Sinclair has a slightly slow pace, but I was charmed enough by the characters that I didn’t mind. Caroline and Lawrence’s romance develops organically and there are just enough obstacles that I was curious to see how they would ultimately end up together. Caroline and Lawrence would be enough to make this a satisfying read, but the addition of Caroline’s brothers filled out this story nicely and made me look forward to more House of Lovell books.The Singular Mr. Sinclair was a joy to read and by the time I finished the book I was excited to read more of Mia Marlowe’s work.

My Fierce Highlander by Vonda Sinclair is an amazing historical romance. Ms. Sinclair has delivered a well-written book. The characters are absolutely phenomenal. Gwyneth was sent to the Highlands after she found herself unwed and pregnant. She rescues Alasdair when he is injured while battling her cousin's clan. Gwyneth and Alasdair's story is loaded with drama, humor, action, suspense and sizzle. I enjoyed this book from cover to cover and look forward to reading more from Vonda Sinclair in the future. My Fierce Highlander is book 1 of the Highland Adventure Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
Wendy Vella has once again penned a phenomenal historical romance. The more I read from this author, the more I love her work. Touched By Danger is a fairly short read, perfect for those with limited reading time. Ms. Vella has delivered a well-written book. The characters are amazing, I love them. Max and Essex's story is loaded with drama, steamy sex, action, humor and suspense. I enjoyed reading Touched By Danger and look forward to my next book by Wendy Vella. Touched By Danger is book 3 of the Sinclair & Raven Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
