The Soldier's Scoundrel (The Turner Series, #1) by Cat Sebastian 4 Star Review!
The Soldier's Scoundrel - Cat Sebastian

A scoundrel who lives in the shadows
 
Jack Turner grew up in the darkness of London's slums, born into a life of crime and willing to do anything to keep his belly full and his siblings safe. Now he uses the tricks and schemes of the underworld to help those who need the kind of assistance only a scoundrel can provide. His distrust of the nobility runs deep and his services do not extend to the gorgeous high-born soldier who personifies everything Jack will never be.  
 
A soldier untarnished by vice 
 
After the chaos of war, Oliver Rivington craves the safe predictability of a gentleman's life-one that doesn't include sparring with a ne'er-do-well who flouts the law at every turn. But Jack tempts Oliver like no other man has before. Soon his yearning for the unapologetic criminal is only matched by Jack's pleasure in watching his genteel polish crumble every time they're together.  
 
Two men only meant for each other

 

Review

 

I loved every moment of this historical romance between Jack and Oliver. 

With a great plot and wonderful characters this romance is charming and moving.

I love a good opposites attract romance and this is great one. 

I adored watching Jack and Oliver fall in love and find a way to make it work.

The rest of the cast is wonderful as well.

Very good!

The Lawrence Browne Affair (The Turner Series, #2) by Cat Sebastian 4.5 Stars!!
The Lawrence Browne Affair - Cat Sebastian

An earl hiding from his future . . .

Lawrence Browne, the Earl of Radnor, is mad. At least, that’s what he and most of the village believes. A brilliant scientist, he hides himself away in his family’s crumbling estate, unwilling to venture into the outside world. When an annoyingly handsome man arrives at Penkellis, claiming to be Lawrence’s new secretary, his carefully planned world is turned upside down.

 

A swindler haunted by his past . . .

Georgie Turner has made his life pretending to be anyone but himself. A swindler and con man, he can slip into an identity faster than he can change clothes. But when his long-dead conscience resurrects and a dangerous associate is out for blood, Georgie escapes to the wilds of Cornwall. Pretending to be a secretary should be easy, but he doesn’t expect that the only madness he finds is the one he has for the gorgeous earl.

 

Can they find forever in the wreckage of their lives?

Challenging each other at every turn, the two men soon give into the desire that threatens to overwhelm them. But with one man convinced he is at the very brink of madness and the other hiding his real identity, only true love can make this an affair to remember.

 

Review

 

So much to adore about this frothy historical romance between a genius Earl and a con man.

I loved Georgie in the first book in this series and was thrilled to see him get the hero treatment here. 

Laurence is my favorite kind of hero- gruffy, grumpy genius. 

What I loved about this book is that the character growth and the falling love happens because these heroes slow down and really reflect on themselves and then they fall in love and lust. 

We have a crumbling estate, a dog, a child, bumps in the night, experiments of all kinds but also a really fine discussion of mental health and its intersection with homosexuality (or not really), cruelty, genetics depression, anxiety. 

And then Georgie's dire poverty and his criminal and ethical choices are just as interestedly engaged. The need for him to make a home of Lawerence child could have been more carefully explored but that is really a quibble. 

The secondary cast (especially the dog who is pretty much a service animal without the name) is well drawn. 

Georgie and Lawerence have a vibrant love story here. A treasure.

The Soldier's Scoundrel (The Turner Series #1) by Cat Sebastian
The Soldier's Scoundrel - Cat Sebastian

This was my first by the author and it for sure won't be my last. Oliver and Jack were from opposite sides on the social scale and yet they found a way to make it work in a totally believable way. Even though Jack was kind of a jerk at times he was still lovable and charming and oh, so sexy. Definitely an enjoyable, satisfying story.

Classic Tiffany Snow
Turn the Tables - Tiffany Snow Turn the Tables - Tiffany Snow

***Attention fans of Tiffany Snow***

 

It's here at last! This is the prequel all fans of The Kathleen Turner Series have been waiting for... The long-awaited brotherly bonding trip to Las Vegas, where Blane and Kade somehow manage to get themselves a lifetime ban from the MGM Grand hotel.

 

I love both the previous companion novels; Blane's Turn and Kade's Turn because we get to learn and understand the dynamics between Blane and Kade in the early stages of their relationship. I've always enjoyed their interactions and Turn the Tables gives us a glimpse of how they relate to each other as adults...before their lives became even more entwined and complicated.

 

The trust, respect and admiration for each other is ever present between Blane and Kade as we see them in a more relaxed setting...almost! Nothing is ever as it's intended to be and their break in sin city is a shining example of always expect the unexpected!

 

This novella is highly entertaining and laugh-out-loud funny. The plot is without a doubt completely over the top, but at the same time so very fitting considering it's set in Las Vegas. The timeline is short and the pace is lightning fast but not overwhelmingly so. Ms Snow crams a lot into the pages of this novella, but everything melds together perfectly.

 

Their escapade is supported by a colourful supporting cast of characters, complimented by the usual quick-witted banter we associate with the protagonists. There are a few surprises along the way but I'm not to give anything away with regards to the plot. All I will say is that anyone who loves Blane and Kade will want to read this light-hearted and fun caper.

Unveiled By Courtney Milan 99 cents
Unveiled (A Turner Series Novel) (Entangled Edge) - Courtney Milan

Of all Ash Turner's accomplishments, stealing a dukedom from his old enemy is by far the most brazen. Now that he's been recognized as the heir, nothing remains but to head to Parford Manor and survey the estate that will be his. He expects opposition.

He gets Lady Margaret.

Margaret lost everything when Ash claimed the dukedom: her dowry, her legitimacy, and her place in society. Now Ash wants to take her family home, too. She disguises herself as a nurse, determined to learn his weaknesses. But the closer she comes to Ash, the greater the pull of his reckless charm. If she wants to reclaim what she has lost, her only choice is to betray the man she is beginning to love...
