charming inventor romance
The designs of Lord Randolph Cavanaugh - Stephanie Laurens

Ah, insomnia, all the joy of reading with none of the revitalisation of sleep, with added grumbling from my husband about the time etc.  Ireland is in the grip of a heat wave and I am not suited to hot summer nightsm, nor are our houses.


Lord Randolph Cavanaugh is travelling to Buckinghamshire to investigate the progress of an inventor.  Little does he know that the inventor has died and his son has taken over the job and that his sister, Felicia, is a distraction.  Felicia is struggling to keep the family solvent but her brother and formerly her father are caught up in the throes of invention.  Randolph and Felicia have to work together to make sure the horseless carriage makes it's way to an exhibition.  And there's a saboteur making things more difficult.


I loved how the characters were so competent in many ways, how Randolph realised that Felicia is smart and encouraged her to use that smarts and when he proposed marriage he also proposed a partnership and it was just so good.  I cared deeply about the characters and the outcome and was so happy when everything resolved itself so well.

Governess and tutor find themselves drawn to each other. Meanwhile family life for the Cynsters continues and the next generation face up to the fact that childhood is almost over.


Good bridge novel between the older generation and newer.

The Lady’s Command by Stephanie Laurens $1.99
The Lady's Command (The Adventurers Quartet) by Laurens, Stephanie(December 29, 2015) Mass Market Paperback - Stephanie Laurens


The instant Captain Declan Frobisher laid eyes on Lady Edwina Delbraith, he knew she was the lady he wanted as his wife. The scion of a seafaring dynasty accustomed to success, he discovered that wooing Edwina was surprisingly straightforward—not least because she made it plain that she wanted him as much as he wanted her.



Declan's vision of marriage was of a gently-reared wife to grace his arm, to manage his household, and to bear his children. He assumed that household, children, and wife would remain safely in England while he continued his life as an explorer sailing the high seas.



Declan got his wish—up to a point. He and Edwina were wed. As for the rest—his vision of marriage…



Aunt of the young Duke of Ridgware and sister of the mysterious man known as Neville Roscoe, London's gambling king, even before the knot was tied Edwina shattered the illusion that her character is as delicate, ethereal, and fragile as her appearance suggests. Far from adhering to orthodox mores, she and her ducal family are even more unconventional than the Frobishers.



Beneath her fairy-princess exterior, Edwina possesses a spine of steel—one that might bend, but will never break. Born to the purple—born to rule—she's determined to rule her life. With Declan's ring on her finger, that means forging a marriage that meets her needs as well as his.



But bare weeks into their honeymoon, Declan is required to sail to West Africa. Edwina decides she must accompany him.



A secret mission with unknown villains flings unexpected dangers into their path as Declan and Edwina discover that meeting the challenge of making an unconventional marriage work requires something they both possess—bold and adventurous hearts.



The first voyage is one of exploration, the second one of discovery. The third journey brings maturity, while the fourth is a voyage of second chances.



Start the journey here and follow the adventure, the mystery, and the romances to the cataclysmic end.

The Taming of Ryder Cavanaugh (The Cynster Sisters Duo, #2) - Stephanie Laurens

Mary gets the necklace and then trys to see if she can make the man she has her eyes on. His brother is more attracted and despite trying to resist each other they fail.  It's full of the crazy plots, death, distraction and strange complications and in some places the romance gets somewhat lost under the plots.

And Then She Fell (Cynster Sisters Duo, #1) - Stephanie Laurens

She helps women escape mis-matches, enough that she's been called "The Matchbreaker" but now she's helping James Glossup find a partner in order to inherit, and to add to the mess, someone apparently wants Henrietta dead.


Entertaining and fun with a smidge of goddess-worship.
