THE HANDFASTING by Glynnis Campbell

Granddaughter to the chieftain, Grace McNish, decides it's her duty to capture and ransom a vile McNab.

HEART OF FRAGILE STARS by Cynthia Wright
Georgian London and the High Seas: Dashing French pirate Jean-Philippe Beauvisage revels in his life of freedom…until the night at a ball in Georgian London, when a Russian beauty steals his heart.

    Charming, quick reads and just a bit steamy! I enjoyed reading this collection. I am the mom of a toddler and a full time teacher/ band director in the midst of spring concert season. But I am a true bookworm at heart. And I love that these well-written books are a quick read. (I read one of them in its entirety on the school bus too and from contest this past weekend!) They are charming, feel-good stories with just enough steam to keep things interesting! Enjoy!!! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    Reviewing "Forevermore" by Lauren Royal Wow! What a great read! This novella is part of the Chase family series, but it is not necessary to have read them in order to enjoy this book. It is great as a stand alone novella. Lauren Royal "puts to paper" a cast of realistic characters with soul-capturing emotions. If you're a fan of historical romances with some spice, you'll love this read! I was hooked from the first chapter! I am always looking for more books to read by Lauren Royal. I received a free review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
