Angel's Guardian

Scottie Barrett
Erotic Historical Romance
Published in 2016

H/h - Major Nicholas Draxford/Angeline Kent
Setting: Regency.

Read in November, 2016.
My rating:

                                                               [spoiler alert]

3.5 stars... another good one from Scottie Barrett. I liked it quite a bit. ;)

Angel's Guardian had one of my favorite tropes; romance between a guardian and his ward. I don't mind at all, especially if the guardian is as hot as Major Nicholas Draxford. :D

When the story opened, it took me a while getting into it. There were quite a few characters and a lot going on altogether. It seemed Angeline, or Angel, our h just arrived in her guardian's estate on occasion of his long awaited arrival. The house was full of guests and she didn't wanna be there but she had to. Only she wished she could stop thinking about Nicholas Draxford, the handsome soldier who had stolen her heart even at that tender age when she'd last seen him.

Nicola R. White
(Original Sin #1)
Published: October 14, 2016 

Magdalene is a mob-connected madam. Tommy Flynn is the hitman who loves her. And when they're framed for the murder of a rival crime boss’s favorite son, Magdalene fears the sins of her past have come back to haunt her. After spending half a lifetime in a seamy underworld where love is for sale and men worship at the altar of sex and greed, claiming sanctuary in a cathedral is the last thing she wants to do - and the only chance she has to find out who set her up.

With all clues pointing to Magdalene's ex-lover, a working girl called Lola, the legendary madam is reluctant to trust Tommy, a smooth-talking hired gun, and risk being burned again. But as time grows short and secrets are revealed, Magdalene will have to look into the dark places inside herself if she is to catch a killer and survive with body and soul intact.

In the corrupt city of Crawley, Massachusetts, passion, crime and religion collide in this steamy, neo-noir romantic thriller.

The Heat of the Knight by Scottie Barrett

The Heat of the Knight (novella)

Scottie Barrett

Erotic Historical Romance
Published in 2016 (Originally 2009)

H/h - Lord Beckett de Saxby/Christiana
Setting: Medieval Era

Read in October, 2016.
My rating:

                                                [spoiler alert]

3.5 stars. A super hot, well-written novella. Really enjoyed The Heat of the Knight by Scottie Barrett.

Set in the medieval era, our H Beckett is all that we think a Lord of the Castle should be; darkly handsome, moody and broody. Super obsessed with our h Christiana, who once used to be his childhood friend. It started from there but so far, had not gone anywhere that Beckett would've liked it to be.

Now there were problems, 1. Christiana isn't a lady by any means, so Beckett can't think of a future with her. This means Beckett can't offer her anything more than a mistress's position. And 2. the most important one, she doesn't seem to be as attracted to him as he is, getting all hot and bothered with his best friend Colin. Since she doesn't even give him the attention he seeks, which ruins his mood every time, Beckett goes to "forget it" by seeking his numerous mistresses and other women in the castle. Among them were the prostitutes he liked bringing in or quite a few of the serving girls who happily shared his bed. Beckett is big and tall, muscular and a beast in bed and they delighted in his attention.
