I was given a copy of this book by Marguerite Kaye to review on the condition I write an honest review. This was the first Regency book I have read for over six months, what this book showed me was how much I had missed reading Regency after all it is my favorite history period.

It is extremely well written and as usual has Marguerite's high standard stamp attached, as is the case with all her books.

Henrietta Markham a governess for the horrid Lady Ipswich finds herself in a strange bed with the worst Rake of all time or at least that is what Henrietta assumes. 

Accused of stealing the Ipswich Emeralds Henrietta runs away and finds herself back in Rafe's company whom she turns to for help which Rafe duly gives. Ensconced for several days in the  Mouse and Vole Inn London, Henrietta is able to break down some of the walls that Rafe St Alban's has built up for the past five years.

Just not enough for him to give her the happy ending she wants or needs. Running away for a second time Rafe is left to wonder where Henrietta has gone and what she will do with little money in London.

Rafe St Alban's the Earl of Pentland is hiding emotional scares that time haven't been able to heal. When Henrietta runs away from him after declining his suggestion he is lost ever more as with each day they sent together he had been lost to her yet unable to admit it to himself.

Lady Ipswich (aka Nell Brown) finally gets her comeuppance  and packs herself off to the continent.

Rafe is your typical brooding alpha male and Henrietta a feisty heroine that is not afraid of speaking her mind or to standing up to the notorious rake.

The book cover to exudes all the regency splendor, 'The Rake with a Frozen Heart'  is a great read and I couldn't put it down, a real page turner.

Darkness awakened is the first in the primal heat trilogy by Stephanie Rowe. It has been a long time since a paranormal book held my attention, but this one did so much so I couldn't put it down.

Clayden Quinn Masters is on a quest for his immortal brother when his life collides with that of Illusionist Grace Mathews, whom is on a quest of her own that of finding her sister.

The sex scenes in the book totally blew me away extremley hot and sensual.

I can not wait to read the other two books in the trilogy. Stephanie Rowes book is a must for all paranormal and none paranormal fans.

Spellbound and seduced review

I had this on pre order and as soon as it came devoured it. I loved the whole atmosphere, just perfect for the time of year. Jura Mcnair is a witch and has been cursed by a great grandmother as have all the Mcnair women previously that the man they fall in love with will die. She is a lonely witch who does tricks for the children of the village. This I believe gives her some comfort. Helping her neigbours when they fall ill gives Jura something to live for.
Until Laurence Connaught rides into her life and turns her world upside down and inside out. She tells him of the curse after they spend several days loving each other and lets him ride off into the sunset rather than risk loosing him to the curse. But true love will break the curse.

Margurite got me again with this story, where i was shouting at my kindle. I had thought the curse had claimed Laurence but he gets to live with Jura and his child with the curse broken.

Another great story from the pen of Margurite Kaye:)

We'll Always have Paris

    I received a copy through my door from Jessica Hart and feel extremely pleased to have had the pleasure of reading this.

The hero Simon Valentine is not your typical Alpha male and I loved this. It made it a bit more real for me as not all men are your typical Alpha males. I loved that he learned a dance routine and a song to win her heart. Making a fool of himself in the process but in a good way.

Clara isn't the perfect looking beautiful heroin and this made the characters seem more natural. She is quirky and has a real thing for musicals (a girl after my own heart.)

The story was totally different from what I had read before and felt it was one I could be quite happy to re read again.

It will make you laugh and shed a tear or two. It is a must read for all romance fans.
