Wow!!
Stone Devil Duke (A Hold Your Breath Nov... Stone Devil Duke (A Hold Your Breath Novel) (Volume 1) - K.J. Jackson

Stone Devil Duke by is my first book by K.J. Jackson, but won't be my last.  Ms. Jackson has delivered a well-written book. The characters are phenomenal.  Kudos to Ms. Jackson for these awesome characters and their interaction.  Aggie is searching for her father's killers before they can kill her too.  Disguised as a hack driver, Aggie unwillingly picks up Devin when his carriage suffers a broken wheel.  Their story is packed with intrigue, action, drama and sizzle.  I totally loved reading Stone Devil Duke and look forward to reading more from K.J. Jackson in the future.  Stone Devil Duke is book 1 of the Hold Your Breath Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read a free copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel.

Blame and a little gaslighting
The Duke's Secret Heir - Sarah Mallory

There have been a few books I've read where I honestly wanted to take the hero out and beat some sense into him, this is one.  Yes talking is good but it took several people telling him for him to pay attention.  A trip behind the stables with a cricket bat could have speeded things up.

 

In the Egyptian desert Ellen Tatham falls in love and marries Max Colnebrooke, working under secret orders with the army. When she arrives at the English Representative in Cairo he tells her that it's all a lie and refuses to help her.  She resorts to a friend of her companion to help her escape and hides under a false name, pretending to be a widow, to hide her shame.  She has written twice to Max to try to contact him but she has received only nasty letters back from his family.

 

Then he comes back to her life and he blames her for everything, for betraying him, for "making" him be reckless with himself and his men, putting his friend in the line for a bullet. Basically blaming her for it all, instead of trying to see her point, what happened to her, how she has managed to avoid scandal and other connections. How loyal she has been.  Nope, she's evil and bad and the only reason he's tolerating her is because they have a son.

 

Yeah, a great starter for a relationship. Even when she cries, terribly upset by everything while she is organising a party for him, he rebuffs her.  This guy isn't a prize.

 

It's all resolved at the end, of course, but if I was her I wouldn't trust that he wouldn't have another irrational moment and heap misery on me again. I wanted to knee him at one stage and would have cheered her on if she had.  Cold drink to the head would have been a useful retort too.

 

Romance has a problem with problem relationships and this is a prime example.

The Duke's Secret Heir - Sarah Mallory

Dear main characters,

 

You both seem like intelligent people, either talk to each other or get someone to intermediate, you have a sick to death friend in common, use them, stop being asses to each other.

No Other Duke Will Do (Windham Brides) by Grace Burrowes
No Other Duke Will Do (Windham Brides) - Grace Burrowes

 

My favorite trait of author Grace Burrowes is that whether dabbling in suspense, bursting with atomic attraction or stepping into the throws of ecstasy, she never takes herself too seriously.  There is just enough of the fantasy to captivate and entertain.  No Other Duke Will Do spins a tale of friendship and seduction that starts with a relationship of convenience.  Elizabeth and Julian are the stars of a cast of characters that look to charm their way into the heart as easily as they set up residence in the mind.

Short Historical Romance
Given to the Duke (Historical Romance Ta... Given to the Duke (Historical Romance Tale) - Lindsey Locke

Given To The Duke is my first book by Lindsey Locke, I can’t wait for my next one.  This is a fairly short historical romance, perfect for those with limited time for reading.  Ms Locke has delivered a well-written book and furnished it with phenomenal, lovable characters.  Helen and Drake’s story is full of drama, humor and sizzle.  I enjoyed Given To The Duke and look forward to reading more from Lindsey Locke in the future.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
