Favorite Quote: “I do not judge you for your past and I will defend against anyone who do.”
Viscount Neville, Leif Riley, is considered a scoundrel who enjoys the attentions of wealthy woman for money. Though many only see a charming seductive rake, not many know of the reasons behind his facade. He is desperate to restore his ancestral home to its former glory and hopefully break the curse that has repeatedly destroyed his family through the ages. When he sees Abbigael Granger, he thinks he has found a way to make all his dreams come true.
Irish Heiress Abbigael Granger (Abby) has come to London in order to secure her future. Circumstances from her childhood has left her with a secret that could destroy her chances of a normal life with a husband and children. She has only one chance to make her dreams come true and a scandalous rake doesn’t figure into those plans.
Circumstances force Leif to kidnap Abby and spirit her away to Gretna Green. He does offer Abby a choice in the matter and she agrees; she will get her husband and children and he will get the money he needs. But Abby and Leif soon find that love has a funny way of deriding all the best laid plans. As Abby and Leif discover overwhelming pleasure in the marriage bed, both wonder if they can find pleasure out of it.
When I first requested Reckless Viscount by Amy Sandas, I was sure I was going to get a lightweight humorous marriage of convenience romance. I was wrong. Reckless Viscount is a emotional love story about two completely different people who meet and discover the missing pieces to their soul. A visually impacting romance that focuses heavily the protagonists and their journey towards love, forgiveness, and redemption. Delicious emotional dialogue and lush sensual scenes paint a vivid picture that stays with you long after the end. Sanda’s has an intriguing prose that speaks directly to the romantic at heart.
I absolutely adored Abby and Leif. Two intelligent, strong, witty people who find themselves attracted despite their misgivings. They were a joy to get to know. So different yet so much alike. It’s their loneliness that calls them to one another. Their dialogue is humorous, sexy, and heartbreaking as we watch Abby and Leif struggle to adjust to their impulsive marriage and the consequences that come with it.
Leif is a delightfully sexy beta hero with a heart of gold and a gentle commanding nature. Though tragic circumstances forced him into a role he now plays somewhat unwillingly, I found he is so much more than he allows you to see. His lighthearted commentary and abundant flirting belies the darkness that he harbors in his soul.
Abby delights the reader as we peel back her layers and find she isn’t the normal innocent miss whom is usually found on the marriage market. Nor is she as malleable as Leif thinks. She has a unique way of looking at people and situations and instantly knows the best way to handle them. Though this wasn’t the way she wanted to get married, she is attracted to Leif and agrees to go through with the “kidnapping.” She is honest with him from the start, telling him about her secret and goes into their marriage with hope for their future.
The chemistry between them sparks from the first moment they meet and only continues to flame brighter and brighter as time passes. Though not an erotic romance, Sanda writes some incredibly sensual and racy love scenes that she uses to explore our hero and heroine’s physical and emotional hearts. We are able to see past their public facades and into their very souls.
“You unravel me,” he whispered against her panting mouth.
Leif knows he is not what Abby needs. His past has his heart securely caged and he feels he is undeserving of her happiness and love.
“Love is just a word men and women toss around when they are trying to get something from each other.”
Regardless of Leif’s thoughts, you can’t help but fall in love with him. While he is manipulative to certain extent, he isn’t a chest beating alpha. He carries a lot of guilt for forcing Abby into marriage and also for his attraction to her. Watching Leif fight his attraction for her is heartbreaking, especially when you realize the reasons he is doing it. He feels deep inside that he isn’t any good for her. His past has left him cold and unable to completely trust anyone and he honestly believes he carries a taint that he cannot bear to see touch Sara.
“He had never felt so deeply entangled in a woman’s reaction. There was an odd hint of desperation hovering in the muted light of the room. He feared the desperation came from himself and that suspicion created a feeling in his bones that was both disturbing and incredibly arousing.”
Fear soon overrides his common sense and we watch as our couple begins to disintegrate as Leif is unable to stop the loathing that resides within him.
“He hadn’t realized until just now that lately he had been playing the game with only the necessary physical facilities, allowing his internal involvement to withdraw further and further. But last night, he had been present and invested in every moment. [...] There was just no way he could have anticipated what that would do to him in turn. And now he paid the price for it, feeling coldly stripped bare.“
It is at this point that we see what Abby is truly made of. And she is glorious in her fight for Leif’s love.
Though we don’t see much of the secondary characters, they are prominent in our protagonists lives. Humor intertwines within the story, balancing nicely with the emotional angst and drama. I especially liked that Leif wasn’t a jerk. Not to say he wasn’t an arse at times, because he was. But he doesn’t treat our heroine like she is less than him or that she should be embarrassed by anything she feels or does. When they get together, Leif treasures and nurtures everything about her-never breaking the vibrant spirit that originally attracted him to her.
As per most romances, Leif and Abby have to run a pretty rough gauntlet in order to overcome obsticles that block their path to their happily ever after. Sandas’ chooses an interesting abet often used set of circumstances that allows Leif to understand and accept the depths of his love for her.
Ah l’amour. I enjoyed this story and the wonderful hero and heroine who shed all their inhibitions and face their greatest fears in order to go on the most powerful and painful journey they ever embarked on…falling in love.
Favorite Quote: “My reputation has no importance when it comes to you…”
Sarah Osborne is the daughter of the Hawkins family gardener. Having been raised and educated with the Hawkins children, she straddles a very fine line in the family. Not their equal as head chambermaid, but held in higher regards than the average servant. She has loved Simon since she was a child. He rescued her from a mishap with a blackberry bush and he became her knight in shining armor. Sarah had no idea Simon felt the same until they shared a passionate kiss but then Simon fled to London the next day and she has not seen him since.
Simon Hawkins has a lot of responsibility on his shoulders. Having held the title of Duke since a young man, he has weathered scandals, rumors, and innuendos concerning his family for years. His main goal now is to bring respectability to the House of Trent. Summoned home when his mother suddenly disappears, he is unsure whether she let of her own accord or through nefarious means. This brings him back into Sarah’s life and he is unhappy to see that his feelings for her have not faded. He stayed away from the family estate for years, ashamed for what he saw as taking advantage of Sarah. He knows he and Sarah have no real chance at a true relationship but his heart doesn’t care.
With his mother’s disappearance in mind, Simon decides to move his sister, Lady Esme and Sarah to London for safety reasons. The move puts Simon and Sarah into closer contact and their passion for one another only burns brighter. Their already doomed love affair is further tested by a very determined debutante and papa who sees Simon as her way to become a Duchess and uses any means necessary to achieve their goals. As Simon struggles to maintain status quo and do the right thing by his family and Sarah, the choice is suddenly taken from him and he finds himself hurting them all.
The Duchess Hunt is a Cinderella-esque story that tells of the forbidden love story between a duke and a servant. As these two destined soulmates navigate the shark filled waters of the ton and its social rules, I was astounded by the poise and depth of emotion Ms. Haymore is able to impart into their story. I admit to being wary to how Ms. Haymore would pull this off. Dukes do not marry servants. Dally, maybe, but never marry. Complex and seductive, Haymore gently peels apart the layers of their feelings, expectations, social obligations to being us the true hearts of Sarah and Simon.
Sarah and Simon are honorable strong individuals who despite their respective stations in life, truly love one another. Sarah’s strength is especially noticeable as we watch her very realistic mannerisms and emotions. Though Sarah is well aware of her station in life, she is not one to settle on what is expected of her. She knows who and what she wants and while she may never get it, she won’t accept second place from or for anyone. She has a quiet boldness to her that made her a heroine worthy of a Duke.
Simon is just as wonderful as we get an intimate look at his true emotions and the agonizing choices forced on him. His wants and needs war with his unbending honor, yet he’s not so embroiled in society’s rules that he isn’t willing to bend or break a few when needed-especially when it comes to the woman he loves. His love for his family is heartwarming as are the sacrifices he makes for their happiness.
I loved how Ms Haymore didn’t allow Sarah and Simon an easy HEA; it’s quite dramatic in its unfolding. The sexual and emotional tension keep you on edge and becomes almost unbearable as Haymore introduces even more angst and hard decisions that test our protagonists and their resolves. The mystery behind the Duchess’s disappearance is ripe with intrigue and speculation. It blends seamlessly with the romance and brings us a deeper understanding of the House of Trent and it’s inhabitants. I did wish we would have gone little more deeper into the mystery and the reasons behind it as I felt we really didn’t learn much once the book ended.
The secondary cast of characters add delightful depth and balance to the story. Ms. Hayward crafts them each with such vivid individuality that each begs have their very own story told. The Hawkins family is delightful in their love and camaraderie. We learn so much about them as a family unit and as individuals. Luke’s story is next and I am anxious to divulge deeper into his secrets.
The ending brings us a predictable outcome but the journey there was anything but. The mystery is ongoing so don’t expect a resolution in that storyline. I suspect it will continue to the end of the series; each book giving us more clues and insights into the Duchess, her deceased husband, and the problems festering in the House of Trent. I look forward to more of the series and will continue to keep Ms. Haymore on my list of must read historical romance authors.

I want to add that I read the kindle version even though it's not listed here.
Club Ties is Mox's (Ginny and Zeke's son) story and a well told story it is. Better then book one, the romance and suspenseful action blend well as Mox finds the love of his life and does everything humanly possible to protect her from her sadistic ex-boyfriend. I love how easily McBain incorporates further world building and character development to allow us to see what's happening beyond the H/H's storyline. Fans of MC romances and SOA will LOVE this installment and I'm more then ready for book three which is said to release this summer.

A sweet yet poignant historical romance about a young woman who is forced to marry the Laird who shamed her and now they both struggle to make the marriage work. Just loved. Watching Mary struggle to forgive Alexander while watching Alex struggle against the guilt he feels for his previous actions made for an engaging storyline. Humor, action, a taunt plot line, and various sundries make Teresa Reasor an author I plan on reading more of. (less)
Favorite Quote: “Never make your decisions for a man, no matter how stupid over him you are.“
Avery Marks and Roman Forsyth were childhood best friends and sweethearts. When Roman is drafted into the NHL after high school, his only contact with Avery is the expensive guilt gifts he sends home. Avery was heartbroken by his abandonment. She loved him with everything she had and he willingly let her and their love go. When Roman comes home for a rest before the next season opener, he can no longer deny the chemistry that still exists between him and Avery. But Avery isn’t as willing to let bygones be bygones. Roman broke her heart and no matter what the town seems to think, she is not Cinderella, waiting to be swept off her feet by the town’s Prince Charming. Avery is ready to close the book on her past and look towards her future. Can Roman show her that he is ready to be the man Avery fell in love with so many years ago, or has their time for a happily ever after passed them by?
Just In Time is the third book in Addison Fox’s Alaskan Nights series. Fans of the series have been waiting for this installment since first meeting Roman and Avery in book one and getting clues to their broken relationship throughout the series. Though the first two installments were light hearted, this story is definitely emotionally weighted. Our couple has a deep past filled with heartbreak and pain. Add in a small Alaskan town whose prime entertainment is butting into each others business and a pair of grandmothers who have romance on the brain and you have a recipe for disaster as our two protagonists attempt to redefine their relationship.
Avery has spent her whole life in Indigo, Alaska. Having spent a good portion youth caring for her alcoholic mother, Avery now runs the bar in Roman’s mother’s hotel. Having recently returned from Ireland where she studied hospitality, she is seeing her future has more options than she ever imagined. She is a self assured, witty, warm hearted person that takes no crap from anyone. She comfortable in her own skin and it shows when dealing with the town and Roman. What I really liked about Avery is she isn’t into games or deception. She has no issues with telling you exactly how it is.
“I know who you are. I’ve always known who you are. But if you don’t know I can’t fix that for you.”
Roman was harder to pin down. We never really got to know him as well in the series because he isn’t around much. Most of what we do hear is from other points of view. Considered a god on the ice, he has some issues (both professionally and personally) that has him reevaluating his life and future. A life that defines him, or so he thinks. He is angry at the town for the pedestal they have placed him on and the fact that he has to deal with the feelings he has buried for the past fourteen years. Yet, he isn’t a prima donna. He has a large giving heart and does a lot to show his love for the town and residents.
I enjoyed the main element Fox choose to build this story on. Reconnection. Roman and Avery need to reconnect. They need to reacquaint themselves with the adults they have become and learn to let go of the past. That is easier said than done. Avery holds a lot of resentment towards Roman. She has been there, done that, and has the broken heart to prove it. Part of her pain is not only did she lose her lover…but she lost her best friend too. Blaming him for her lack of direction she comes to learn that her choosing to stay in Indigo was not Roman’s fault. She owns up to the fact that her life, such as it is, was by her own decisions. Roman also has to learn that he did in fact abandon Avery to achieve his dreams. The gifts he sent home were nothing more than ways to assuage his guilt. He behaved childishly by staying away from Indigo and Avery and it takes a lot for him to finally realise that. Even once he and Avery seem to overcome the past and look towards the future, Roman’s insecurities reared their ugly head and we see him being an arse again.
The chemistry these two generate is a personable presence in the story. Their anger makes the sexual tension singe the pages. These two weave, bob, and bicker with each other throughout the entire story. There are multiple sub plots that branch out from the main storyline. We see a secondary romance blossom for a special character and we learn that not everyone is happy with the town’s gossipy nature. Roman’s issues are eventually brought out in the forefront and we begin to understand his fears better.
“I got my dream and gave up every single thing of value in my life to get it.”
The secondary characters continue to amuse and exasperate. Such an eccentric group. This town is a perfect example of small town residents. Nosy, gregarious, and truly caring about everything going on. We see more of Grier and Mick and get to watch Sloan and Walker tie the knot. Their lives are on track and I enjoyed visiting with them again. I especially loved Avery’s and Julia’s relationship. Julia is one of the few people who doesn’t see Roman through rose colored glasses and truly understands Avery’s reluctance to go down this path with him again.
“You can’t erase years of bad behavior and just expect things to go back to the way they were.” “No, you can’t.” “You also can’t live your life for other people’s expectations and that’s the biggest reason I wish people knew when to keep their mouths shut.”
A few things that bothered me was the amount of time it took Avery and Roman to finally address their problems. So much rehashing of old resentments and feelings with little advancement and even less honest communication. I felt like we were listening to a broken record that can’t skip to the next song. The pacing is extremely slow up and doesn’t execute well. I was ready to slap Roman for not coming clean about his feelings or his problems. He has a bad habit of assuming things and making decisions that affected the both of them. Avery does a much better job of moving forward and I liked that she was willing to fight for what she wanted even if he wasn’t.
“I’ve loved you always. Before I even understood what it was, I loved you. But I love me, too. And I won’t spend my life worrying if I’m enough to make you happy.”
Even with Roman’s stupid moments (and there were quite a lot of them), the story was still a enjoyable to read with plenty of humor and laugh out loud scenes. The ending comes fast; wrapping everything up nice and tight and giving us a sweet HEA and epilogue.
Loooove. Sam is such an alpha male and I thought Kia would get buried under him but she has her own strength that shines through. Can't wait for book...moreLoooove.

Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series remains one of the best sell...more**spoiler alert** THERE ARE SOME LIGHT SPOILERS IN HERE SO CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK
Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series remains one of the best selling paranormal romance series to date and for good reason. Speaking to readers of all ages and genres, Ms. Kenyon’s unique twist on vampires, mythology, and religion combines fantasy with paranormal romance to create a genre all its own.
Ms. Kenyon has enthralled me since her first book, Fantasy Lover. Intriguing suspense, non stop action, sizzling romance, and wicked humor has kept this intensely character driven series an auto buy for me well into it’s twenty third release, Styxx. Now I know many fans were shocked when Kenyon announced Styxx was the next hero in this series. Though we had seen him through the series, he has never been portrayed in a favorable light. Considered the ultimate villain, most fans identified him as a threat to our beloved Ash.
We first met Styxx in Night Pleasures. Then again in Night Embrace when he teams up with Dionysus to bring about the end of the world. He fails, of course, and is sent to Tartarus by Artie-the red headed heifer goddess (Artemis). Artie further punishes Styxx by giving him all of Ash’s childhood memories. Minor walk on scenes with Styxx are also seen in Dark Side Of The Moon, Sins Of The Night, and The Devil May Cry. It isn’t until Acheron that Styxx is fully introduced and his character explored. In here we learn exactly who Styxx is and the importance he has in Ash’s life. Styxx is the twin brother of Acheron Parthenopaeus (Ash). His true name is Styx of Didymos. Born a prince in 9548 BC, he was the privileged son of the king and queen of Didymos. In Acheron we are told that during his mortal life, Styxx hated Ash with every single cell of his being and caused him nothing but unimaginable pain and humiliation every chance he got. We never really understood why. It’s only when Ash is killed by Apollo does Styxx learn of the unbreakable ties that bind him to Ash. And what Ash really is. The first half of Acheron focuses on Ash’s childhood and it’s brutal to say the least. By the end of Acheron, Styxx and Ash have made a tentative peace and Ash sends Styxx to New York to start his life anew and try to forget his past.
“I don’t ask for your forgiveness. I don’t deserve it. I only ask for a chance to show you now that I’m not the fool I was once. (Styxx)” -Acheron
So, why do we need more? What could Styxx possibly have to tell us to make us forgive him for his treatment of Ash?
It is often said that there are three sides to every story. Yours, theirs, and the truth. Memories are tailored to fit our emotional state at the time and what we remember isn’t always exactly how it happened. We learn here that what we read in Acheron was not the complete truth. Styxx sets the story of his and Ash’s childhood to rights. What we thought we knew becomes only a single part of the whole story, told from the viewpoints of a horrifically abused, often drugged addled man and his jealous sister. In Styxx we will learn who the real Styx of Didymos is and the events that Ash never saw or buried in pain and guilt. We learn of Styxx’s strength and perseverance. His sorrow and pain. His love and loss. We learn of events that weren’t in Ash’s book. Misjudged, condemned, betrayed and abandoned…there’s a whole side of Styxx that no one knows of.
None of them had ever taken pity on him. He was thrown aside and forgotten like garbage. Until They needed him. All he ever wanted was a family. One person who treated him like he mattered to them. All he had gotten was disappointment. Slapped in the face and stabbed in the heart.
In here you will learn the truth as it really happened.
Kenyon takes a sword and hacks away at the misconceptions from the past to get to the heart of truth with the skill of a surgeon and the strength of a warrior. Her judgment is swift and her punishments exact as she reveals the hypocrisy and betrayal. Kenyon starts Styxx like Acheron, in the past at the very beginning. I loved that Styxx takes us back into the familiar and we are given a tortured hero whose story of love, sacrifice, redemption, and forgiveness astounds, wounds, and humbles. Styxx’s life is harsh study in cruelty and horror. While Ash’s book was heartbreaking, Styxx’s book rips your heart out of your chest and leaves you gasping for breath while being kicked repeatedly in the head. Not only what he experiences physically, but also mentally and emotionally. He has lost so much that death is a release he craves everyday. His only happiness is his memories of a woman and a life ripped from him thousands of years ago.
“…the book was filled with pictures of the same women and the baby boy at various ages that ranged from newborn to adult hood. [...] Memories that had be stolen from him “
Truths are spoken and lies are revealed. Acheron sees the incredible disservice he has done to Styxx and himself by clinging to his hatred and bitterness. His eyes are opened wide and he acknowledges the blindness that he choose to live with. By looking into the past and seeing it through someone else’s eyes, Acheron learns some ugly truths about himself and the part he played in the pain and suffering he and Styxx endured.
“You even held him down while he was branded a whore.”
Though some readers may find the telling Styxx’s story from the beginning to be redundant as it incorporates a significant portion of Acheron, it is necessary in order to pull the truth out of the many lies and deceptions fostered upon Styxx and Ash. The main plot and various subplots weave and wind throughout, yet never present in a way that confuses the reader. I’m in shock and awe with how Kenyon was able to not only keep everything straight but was able to build upon this fantastic ever evolving world she’s built. The layers of deception are astounding and she draws them out with the skill of a master magician.
The interaction we have with so many familiar and beloved characters draws us more intimately into the book and helps to alleviate feelings of redundancy. Just about everyone we have grown to love and/or hate in this series makes an appearance to add their own versions of past and provide advice. Kenyon not only provides Styxx with help from some unexpected allies, but she also uses these connections to bridge ongoing storylines and open new pathways for future storylines. Clues are dropped that left me giddy at the possibilities. One particular character, who’s always been a favorite of mine, further endeared themselves to me with their astonishing compassion and loyalty.
“For once in your lives, can you not think of him and just leave him alone? It’s all he wants. You’ve already forgotten him for three years. What’s another three hundred?”
As we come in to the present stage of the story, the time of reckoning is upon us and at it’s heart is a revenge driven woman who seeks vengeance for the wrong done to her and her family. She vows to make everyone involved pay for what they took from her.
“…she remembered everything the Gods had done to them both to tear them apart and keep them from each other. Anger rose up in her but she forced it down. There would be a full accounting later. No matter what, she couldn’t allow him to suffer anymore or die for these bastards.”
“Or for her.”
Bethany, the Atlantean goddess of Wrath, Misery and the Hunt, often escaped the hectic chaos of her duties by going to the mortal realm and living as a simple peasant girl. It’s here she meets Styxx and they fall in love. The romance and sensuality is at a premium as Bethany and Styxx celebrate their growing passion during a time when if either were discovered with the other, the result would be death or worse. When Bethany makes the choice to give up her godhood to live with Styxx as a mortal, all hell breaks lose and Bethany finds her choice violently taken away from her. When Bethany is awakened, the gods and goddesses who choose their own happiness over hers and set in motion the events that destroyed her love, find themselves called to task for their selfish desires. Worlds collide and fate seeks to realign as we are shown in violent detail the Wraith and Misery that awaits them for meddling with the life of one man and the woman who loved him.
The ending is an intense, emotional roller coaster ride of deception, betrayal, and redemption. Styxx is finally given what the two things he has wanted from the beginning-love and forgiveness. Though I originally disliked Styxx and was dismayed Kenyon would actually even think to devote an entire book to him, I see now that my perceptions were as clouded as Ash’s. Kenyon out does herself as she takes a supposed villain and shows us a remarkable hero whose strength, compassion, and fortitude will stay with you long after you’re finished.
