#BoxSet #WOTR18 – A Scoundrel’s Ruin Box Set

Dawn Brower, Amanda Mariel and Tammy Andresen

A Scoundrel's Ruin

Dance With Me At Midnight by Samantha Holt Charles always knew he’d be married within months of inheriting his title. He’s fully prepared to wed a woman he’s never met by summer.
Until he meets her that is.
Eloise is nothing like the poised, elegant and controlled woman he thought she’d be. Beautiful, yes, even with a damned parrot sitting on her shoulder, but hardly marchioness material.
Even if he does find himself a little intrigued by her.

Stealing the Rogue’s Heart by Erica Monroe When underworld princess Mina Mason falls for her childhood best friend, Charlie Thatcher, their passion starts a rival gang war that threatens to inflame London. With darkness and danger at every turn, these two star-crossed lovers risk it all for love.

For The Love of a Widow by Christina McKnight After years spent following her husband as he fought against Napoleon’s troops, Lady Lettie Hughes returns to London as a widow to take her place in Polite Society as the daughter of an earl. When nightmares of the battlefield plague her, she’ll find a second chance at love with the man she lost six years before.

Stolen by My Knave by Dawn Brower Jackerson Carwyn, the Duke of Whitewood hasn’t led the charmed life some believe, and in fact, grew up in the worst parts of London. Lady Elizabeth Kendall grew up on whimsical tales told by her mother. They are an unlikely match, and yet, sometimes its hard to dismiss the ties of the heart.

Taming a Savage Gentleman by Tammy Andresen Baroness Segrave needs a husband for society’s sake but she’d prefer he have no opinion at all. Which is why the Earl of Loudoun seems the ideal choice. With no fortune and a drinking habit, he should allow her to keep running her estate while living off the allowance she’d provide. But Loudoun proves to be both drunk and foolish. Suddenly a husband who is strong, capable, and appreciative of her gifts gains merit in her eyes. A man like Tom Maddox.

Scandalous Wallflower by Amanda Mariel Jane and Caleb are brought together through an unwanted circumstance and discover something neither one believed they’d ever have, but can they let go of old hurts and beliefs long enough to embrace the gift fate bestowed upon them?

Goodreads

For The Love of a Widow by Christina McKnight – 5 Stars

I receive this book from the author for an honest review.
Oh man!! This book was amazing. I loved the novella and the different approach of the characters. Lettie is a great heroine who has gone through A LOT in the last 6 years. She has left her best friend/betrothed, her dowry, her EVERYHTING to marry a common man. To marry a soldier. All of this against her families wishes.
Daniel was so far in his “cups” to care that his best friend was calling off their marriage. He only cared about ruining himself further in the gaming halls, with willing woman and other things. His depression and downward spiral after his father’s death left him a mess and so saying good bye to Lettie was fine with him.
6 years.
6 years later everything has changed. Lettie is not the popular debutant in the Ton from before. She is a jaded widow who has seem more death and blood shed then any one should have seen. She is lost without her beloved Gregory. He was lost to her in the war. She returns home poor, and destroyed on the inside.
Daniel has realized his life is nothing without Lettie. He let her go 6 years ago, because he was too drunk to know any better and has regretted it every day. When she returns, he will do anything to have her back.
The heartbreaking recounts from Lettie are enough for you to understand why she pushed everyone away. When Daniel opens up to what made him wake up, you want to badly for them to figure to out. Seeing Daniel open up to Lettie, I was totally swooning!! This story was a great read and I would love to read more from them in the future…maybe have them pop in to a future story would be awesome too!!
Stolen by My Knave by Dawn Brower – 5 Stars
I receive this book from the author for an honest review.
**Claapping** AHHHHHH Captain Jack’s book! *Bootie Shaking and fist pumping* I have been so wondering about him after Evelyn’s book and now we know what happens to him.

Jack wakes up after a fall through time to save the king annnd his mistress soooo the king gives the stranger a title but no lands. Jack is in England time trying to figure out what to do and maybe how to get back to his time and life. He knows that getting an invite to the 2 week ball is probably going to drive him nuts. Having a title means young married minded woman will be looking for a husband. That is not in Jack’s cards.

Elizabeth knows alllll about time travel given that her grandmother and mother both did it. Her grandmother escaped Captain Jack and her mother fell through time to marry her father. She has seen visions of Jack but always thought they were her imagination running wild and never really thought that she was seeing the real man.

When they meet unexpectedly at the library, the chemistry was awesome. They both are intrigued and want to know more. When Jack tells Elizabeth his name and then tells her who she is…..Que plot twist….the two can’t be together!! GASP!!

When Jack talks to Alys all about her life, time travel and he learns all is not what he thought so he runs to find and claim his Elizabeth much like Mr. Darcy in the book he is reading!!

This book was one of my favorites in the series!!

Oh sister!!  This book is an amazing jump into a series of books that will all be based off the family of witches centered in this story.

This is a crazy look at how absurd times were during the witch trials and any wrong move can land you being labeled a witch.  Your entire family is then subjected to torture and then death whether you admit or not to being a witch.  This is such a such  horrible part of true culture.

This story is about a family who tried to help out another but is then marked withes.  We see the witches trying to save their family, so they will endure and their bloodline will stay alive.

If you like witches or the Salem Witch Trials, then this is a book for you to give a try. The backstory of this family is short and sweet but just enough to get you to want even more.

#WOTR18 #NewRelease #Review – Earl of Harrington (Wicked Earls’ Club #12, Bluestockings Defying Rogues 1) by Dawn Brower

Earl of Harrington (Bluestockings Defying Rogues 1)

Jonas Parker, the Earl of Harrington has no desire to marry. He rather enjoys being unencumbered and a wife would complicate things. The Wicked Earls’ Club is his haven and he isn’t ready to give it up for matrimony. His grandfather, the Duke of Southington wants nothing more than to see him wed and return to the fold. For that reason alone he’ll avoid proper ladies and wedding bells.

Lady Marian Lindsay rather likes being a spinster and embraces her bluestocking ways. She studying to be a physician and wants to be a proper doctor. She longs to be taken seriously in the medical field, but her efforts go unnoticed. After careful deliberation she devises a scheme that is foolproof, but she needs the help of one of her father’s friends to make it happen.

Harrington is appalled at Marian’s request and refuses outright; however, she somehow manages to charm him into saying yes. Before he realizes it he’s escorting her to Kent and a house party made of his worst nightmares. Propriety must be met at all costs, because he will not be wed at the end of her expedition–or will he?

Jonas and Marian!! What a fun couple to read.  I must admit I was just as taken by all the side characters and revisiting characters from Dawn’s other series that this book FLEW when I read it.

Marian is so strong willed and so NOT your typical Ton chit.  She is not looking for a husband and is quite happy that people already consider her a spinster in the making.

Jonas loves his live as a rake.  He is very happy to spend his time gambling with friends or snuggled with a loose skirted woman then look for love.  He will not make his grandfather happy and find a wife to carry on the Duke’s title.

Jonas and Marian are hilarious with the banter they have. She cannot stand him, or can she?  He loves to flirt just to get under her skin or is it because she is under his skin??

The couple end up spending the weekend at a Garden Picnic when they are confronted with their feelings.  Of course, Jonas makes a move and then breaks Marian’s heart.  Stupid man!  But when Marian is in desperate need of protection, Jones realizes his love for her overrides his fear of marriage, title, and duty!!

I cannot wait to read more from Dawn’s new series.  This book is a series starter as well as part of the Wicked Earl’s Club .  I am dying to see the other ladies find love and the other men as well.

When and Why did you start to write?

Fall of 2013. I started to write because my stepsister dared me to. I’ve been a writing fiend ever since.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

I read things across all genres. I have a deep appreciation for the written word. Recently I just finished reading The Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy series (well the two books that are currently available.) by Hailey Edwards. The way she strings words together is pure magic–like brushstrokes that paint a picture in your imagination. If you like urban fantasy you should definitely check out her work.

I also love Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Nalini Singh and Sherrilyn Kenyon. My go-to authors in historical are Tessa Dare, Julia Quinn, and Johanna Lindsay. Contemporary I like Jaci Burton, Avery Flynn, and Carrie Ann Ryan to name a few.

I have almost everything Lexi Blake has written in audiobook–but I haven’t had time to listen to them. A good friend of mine loves her and I plan on giving her a go next. At least before RT in Reno because I’m sitting on a panel with her and I’d like know something about her work before then, lol.

Basically I read anything…

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

That I can still do it. Each time I sit down to start a new book I think that I can’t possibly finish a whole book, and yet, I do. It amazes me each and every time.

What are you working on now?

I just finished writing Earl of Harrington and sent it off to my editor. It’s part of this huge coordinated release with 11 other authors. The series is The Wicked Earls’ Club. Next I’m writing the final Heart’s Intent book which will release early summer.

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

Mostly pantster with a little plotter tossed in.
