Can real life compare

To the love in their letters?

When Emma first used a pseudonym to write to Captain George Weston on the front line, it was because she felt responsible for his broken engagement.

Yet his letters became a light in the darkest hours, and she shared more of her desires than she ever dared before, never imagining they’d actually meet.

Now that he’s home for Christmas, she longs to see him, but that means revealing who she really is… 

This is a romance that includes no swearing, no violence, and no sexual content (beyond a few light kisses).

Luck be a Lady Tonight by Merry Farmer

Posted June 30, 2022 by Marsha in 2022 New Release Challenge, Booksprout, Historical Romance, Regency Romance, Series, Sexual Content / 0 Comments

The Marquess of Vegas made a deal with the devil, and now his sons must pay the price.

In order to restore the family fortune he lost, Lord Vegas has ordered his sons to marry money and to marry it fast. But the four of them are determined to strike back at their father by marrying the most unsuitable brides they can find….

Joseph Rathborne-Paxton has always lived in his older brothers’ shadows, and he’s just about had it. More than any of the others, he took his father’s moralizing and piety seriously (and was most disappointed when it turned out to be a lie) and did everything he could to be the dutiful son. Now, everyone seems determined to treat him as a child, which he is most certainly not. Joseph is not amused, and he will do whatever he can to prove he is a man to be respected. Like defeating the villainous Montrose single-handedly.

American heiress Ellen Garrett has come to London, intent on taking the place by storm. Ellen is loud, brash, provincial, and ready for anything. Except, as she quickly learns, London society wants nothing to do with a free spirit like her. She is determined to make herself into the perfect English rose, though…but it is a plan she needs Joseph’s help for.

As it turns out, lively Ellen is just what Joseph needs to bring him out of his shell, and Joseph is just what Ellen needs to become a lady. More than that, Ellen just might be what the entire Rathborne-Paxton family needs to right the wrongs Lord Vegas committed and to bring Melrose to justice once and for all. Because every family of the British peerage needs a card sharp, right?

It’s a case of grumpy meets sunshine and opposites attract with a healthy dose of mad-capped mischief, a day at the races, a shopping excursion gone wrong, a villain getting his just deserts in the most thrilling way possible, and two people falling in love whether they want to or not.

Titles in The Unsuitable Brides series include — That’s Why the Lady is a Tramp —♥— Let’s Face the Music and Dance —♥— Some Enchanted Evening —♥— Luck Be a Lady Tonight —♥—

This is an adult 18+ story that may contain language, possible violence, and/or sexual situations geared to an adult audience.

Because of Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn

Posted May 29, 2020 by Marsha in Georgian Romance, Historical Romance, Series, Series Connection / 0 Comments

Sometimes you find love in the most unexpected of places…

This is not one of those times.

Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbors for centuries, and as a child, the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband… someday.

Sometimes you fall in love with exactly the person you think you should…

Or not.

There is only one Rokesby Billie absolutely cannot tolerate, and that is George. He may be the eldest and heir to the earldom, but he’s arrogant, annoying, and she’s absolutely certain he detests her. Which is perfectly convenient, as she can’t stand the sight of him, either.

But sometimes fate has a wicked sense of humor…

Because when Billie and George are quite literally thrown together, a whole new sort of sparks begins to fly. And when these lifelong adversaries finally kiss, they just might discover that the one person they can’t abide is the one person they can’t live without…
