Ramona Flightner
Historical Romance
Published in 2014

H/h - Richard McLeod/Florence Butler
Setting: Boston, 1885/1895.

Read in December, 2014.
My rating:

                                                           [spoiler alert]

Love’s First Flames by Ramona Flightner is a prequel novella to her historical romance series, Banished Saga. I’m very fond of this series, so it was a great pleasure to read Gabriel, Richard and Jeremy’s past lives; the stuff we were hinted at in the 2 earlier installments.

You can read this novella before starting the series or you can read it later, up to you but book 1, Banished Love and book 2, Reclaimed Love should be read in order because one is the continuation of the other. This series is about Gabriel, a superbly handsome carpenter who used to live in Boston at one time. Gabriel and his brothers, Richard and Jeremy are orphans. Their parents perished in a long ago fire. After that incident, they were forced to live with their aunt since they had no one else to turn to.

New York Times bestselling paranormal author, Nicky—Nick—Love is anything but successful in love. For years he’s lost himself in his writing career, but now he’s ready to get back to his rebel-boy roots. While restoring a motorcycle at Stone’s Auto Service, he meets the Wildcat of his dreams. She’s a shock to the system for the romance writer who doesn’t remember a damn thing about wooing a woman.

Cool-as-ice, Catarina “Wildcat” Steele is utterly untouchable until Nicky ignites a spark she can’t control. Their electric attraction explodes as Nicky pursues her, but he comes bearing the baggage of a family tragedy he’s hidden from everyone. He knows love has no guarantees.

Their passionate romance falls apart when Nicky discovers Cat’s secret rivals his own. The truth about her past reopens Nicky’s raw wounds and awakens a ghost he never laid to rest. He doesn’t know how to have Cat, and now he can’t trust her. Will they be torn apart . . . or tamed by love?

Return to Clan Sinclair by Karen Ranney

Return to Clan Sinclair (novella)
Clan Sinclair #3.5

Karen Ranney
Historical Romance
Pub date: December 23, 2014 (ARC review)

H/h - Bruce Preston/Lady Ceana Sinclair Mead
Setting: Scotland, 1880.

Read in December, 2014.
My rating:

                                                      [spoiler alert]

Return to Clan Sinclair was a spinoff novella by Karen Ranney from her historical romance series, Clan Sinclair. I’ve read the previous 3 original installments and enjoyed them, so it was a pleasure for me to revisit the characters and the setting as a whole.

The original Clan Sinclair series talks about 3 siblings, Macrath, Mairi and Ceana. Orphaned quite young, Macrath had to take over his father’s printing business to take care of his younger sisters. He also, later, took in one of their distant cousins, also an orphan, Fenella, who grew up with them. She has always been welcomed and treated as another sister. Though book 1, The Devil of Clan Sinclair, is Macrath’s story and book 2, The Witch of Clan Sinclair, is Mairi’s, Ceana wasn’t a part of this series as a whole. She was seen or mentioned once or twice, already married to an Irish nobleman. Fenella got her HEA in book 2 as a secondary romance, with one of Mairi’s employees, pressman Alan.

Promo Blitz: Adultery by Paulo Coelho

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Today I'm so thrilled to be hosting Brazilian author Paulo Coelho's latest release, Adultery, as a part of the promo blitz! Hope you'll take a look and comment.
Adultery
Paulo Coelho
Published: August 19, 2014 (US Edition)
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23577372-adultery

In the latest novel from #1 best-selling author Paulo Coelho, a woman attempts to overcome midlife ennui by rediscovering herself in a passionate relationship with a man who had been a friend in her youth.

A woman in her thirties begins to question the routine and predictability of her days. In everybody's eyes, she has a perfect life: happy marriage, children, and a career. Yet what she feels is an enormous apathy. All that changes when she encounters a successful politician who had, years earlier, been her high school boyfriend.

As she rediscovers the passion missing from her life, she will face a life-altering choice.
