Rose in Bloom
Helen Hardt
(Sex and the Season #2)

Sex and the Season Book Two
Wiltshire, England 1853

Lady Rose Jameson knows her place—respect authority and convention and marry a suitable member of the peerage. Lord Evan Xavier, the second son of the Earl of Brighton, possesses the necessary pedigree, but though Rose enjoys his company, the spark she craves is missing…the spark she feels in abundance with handsome commoner Cameron Price.

Cameron has accepted his lot in life—to care for his widowed mother and two younger sisters. Instead of writing the music he loves, he’s destined to work the land his family leases from the Duke of Lybrook…and deal with his overwhelming feelings for the duke’s sister-in-law, Lady Rose. When Cam’s sister becomes ill, his fate is further sealed. He must say goodbye to Rose forever.

But circumstances and the appearance of an elderly stranger may change both their fates...

Gage is part of the Barringer Brothers series but can be read as a standalone. 

After nearly losing his friend in a logging accident, Gage Barringer is convinced now more than ever that he needs to find a different job. But his side business of breaking colts at the small Montana ranch he inherited from his grandfather doesn't earn him enough money. He has his mind set on running The Raven's Nest, a popular bar and restaurant near his ranch. The original owner has died and Gage is waiting for it to be put up for sale. 

But there is a five-foot-four, brown eyed, obstacle in his way, an obstacle with lips made for sin and a voice made for breaking hearts. And Summer Donovan is one road block Gage Barringer won't be able to find a way around.

Perfect Ten

Joseph Starling Jr. was in the right place at the right time. It didn’t take him long to discover his particular talent. He knew how to make a woman feel good. If she wasn’t screaming out his name, purring like a kitten or clawing at him like a lioness, he had failed. Mediocre was not a word in his vocabulary. Her enjoyment was so important to him that his own pleasure was a secondary concern.

Faith Graham was nothing like the women he was required to date as an escort—it was what he liked about her from the first time he saw her. She was imperfect and insecure. Her hair was a bit on the wild side, and her clothes were slightly rumpled. But her curves! They were alluring. She had curves where most of the elite clientele he mingled with had straight lines, and not an ounce of softness to be found. Shocking him to his core, she didn’t want anything to do with him.

Joe had always thought that working as an escort for Perfect Ten was a dream come true, but he was beginning to wonder if there was more to life than raking in the cash and having his pick of women on any given night. Could he start over with a new direction in life, or was he already at the age of twenty-six too jaded? Was there more out there for Joe Starling or was he destined to be a boy toy at the whim of any woman rich enough to afford him?

The Sins of a Few by Sarah Ballance

Saturday, October 18, 2014

The Sins of a Few
Sins of Salem #3

Sarah Ballance
Historical Romance
Pub date: Oct 13, 2014 (ARC review)

H/h - Nathaniel Abbott/Faith Downing
Setting: Salem, 1692.

Read in October, 2014.
My rating:

                                                       [spoiler alert]

Sarah Ballance’s Sins of Salem series has gotten better by the installment. As usual, I loved the setting and the story telling in The Sins of a Few. If only not for the h, Faith, I think I’d have a grand time cruising through the story.

The Sins of Salem series is set the backdrop of the disgraceful Salem Witch Trial and aftermaths that the inhabitants of Salem were left to endure. In all that chaos, love and the slow building of trust, became parts of the entire healing process for these people. I’ve heard of the witch trial before but it was only after I started this series that I was inspired to read and find out more about it; the trial, why it all begin, how people were executed without any option to defend themselves... even the supposed, more recent, haunting of the Salem Witch House. Entertaining when you watch those paranormal shows but no less sad when you think of those people who suffered so much.
