France, 1668

Hélène de Bonnefoi’s spirit has been squashed by the ever-critical aunt and uncle who raised her. Serving as nanny and stand-in mother to her cousin’s child has saved her from the convent, especially after her cousin’s death. When suspicious accidents threaten the toddler, Hélène overcomes her near-blindness to seek the help of the child's father, a colonel in Louis XIV’s army.

Jean-Louis, Colonel de Cantière, has spent his life proving his worth, integrity, and honor, first to his family and now in the army. When his daughter’s caretaker appears in his camp during a siege, claiming someone is trying to kill the girl, his loyalties are sorely tested.

Hélène must convince Jean-Louis the threat is real. But the true danger is to the heart of a shy young woman who has always loved her cousin’s husband from afar and to the colonel’s desire to resist complicated emotions.

The Acquisition has ruled my life, ruled my every waking moment since Sinclair Vinemont first showed up at my house offering an infernal bargain to save my father’s life. Now I know the stakes. 

The charade is at an end, and Sinclair has far more to lose than I ever did. But this knowledge hasn’t strengthened me. Instead, each revelation breaks me down until nothing is left but my fight and my rage. As I struggle to survive, only one question remains. 

How far will I go to save those I love and burn the Acquisition to the ground?

Full disclosure: This book is a DARK romance with elements of BDSM, slavery, violence, and super-hot sex. It is the last of the Acquisition trilogy, no cliffhanger. If you're good with these caveats, enjoy!

Depending on the Doctor by Margaret Madigan

Depending on the Doctor 
Nevada Bounty #2

Margaret Madigan
Historical Romance/Western
Published in 2016

H/h - Emmett Wilder/Lydia Templeton
Setting: Nevada, 1872.

Read in April, 2016.
My rating:

                                                            [spoiler alert]

Depending on the Doctor by Margaret Madigan is the second in her western historical romance series, Nevada Bounty. I’ve recently rediscovered my love for western historical and been checking out new authors regularly. This series was a part of that quest. I liked the first book quite a bit because, if you talk about action and adventures, it had plenty. Unfortunately, this new installment wasn’t quite up to my expectation.

Why I said expectation is because Lydia, the h, was the one out of 4 lead women of this series, whose story I was looking forward to the most. Nevada Bounty is based on the stories of Beth, Lydia, Daisy and Nellie. Beth, previously a gambler’s widow, had given other social ‘misfits’ a home because she could connect with them due to her negative reputation. She herself was a gambler when Frank was alive, something that never died down in this small town. Beth is the bold one who’d get into any situation head first, sometimes without even thinking it through. Lydia, the shy and bookish one, always tends to stay within herself. She loves to cook and quite protective of her little family. Daisy is a former prostitute who is trying to mend her ways for a better living. She’s the most flirtatious of the bunch, but that’s only a leftover, harmless trait of her former profession. Nelly is a Native American woman who was raped by a white man, which left a deep scar within her soul. Her only healing balm is her little boy, born after that incident. She seems to be the wisest, though she also tends to keep to herself.
