Book Short Summary:

London 1954: When Estella is abandoned by her lawyer husband, James, her life of luxury crumbles. Not only had he left his job and frittered away their savings, James was cheating on Estella--with her cousin Davinia. But the family secrets didn't end there. Heartbroken, Estella turns her back on England. Her distant uncle Charlie beckons her to Australia, where she accepts a new position--village veterinarian. She had studied veterinary medicine, but she'd never had a real job. As Estella sets off for the outback, she carries secrets of her own: she is pregnant with James' baby. Day one in the bush brings the young Londoner to tears. Kangaroo Crossing, population thirteen, was not what Estella had expected. Sweltering. Dusty. Fly-infested. From the gruff propeller plane pilot to the perpetually drunken town doctor, the locals eye the newcomer with suspicion. After a series of harrowing events, Estella strives to prove herself capable of the job. Just as the villagers of Kangaroo Crossing start to accept Estella-and a romance starts to blossom-her past catches up with her. She's been hiding things from them. Back in England, James has gotten wind of the baby. His new wife, Davinia, can't have children... but her lavish inheritance depends on an heir. James will stop at nothing to get what is his. Can Estella save her baby-and herself-from the wild Australian bush? Will she ever learn to love again? Stars in the Southern Sky is an historical saga set in the "most isolated town" of Australia. From its passionate people, to its mystic wildlife, the outback becomes its own character in Elizabeth Haran's novel about learning how to thrive in the face of adversity. With an eye for detail, Elizabeth Haran has written numerous historical romance novels including Staircase to the Moon, Island of Whispering Winds, Under a Flaming Sky, Dreams beneath a Red Sun, and River of Fortune, available as ebooks. Haran's novels are perfect for fans of family sagas set in beautiful locations like Sarah Lark's, Island of a Thousand Springs or Kate Morton's, The Forgotten Garden.

Book Short Summary:

Fans of Bridgerton and Outlander will love this richly textured and adventurous New Adult Historical Romance series by International Bestselling Author Stacy Von Haegert! It's not your mom's Historical Romance... BOOK ONE SUMMARY: Most debutantes meet their intendeds at polite societal gatherings, not over a duel in Hyde Park. However, Greyland Kingston is not your typical young lady, and her family is far from conventional. The gossip fans start to flutter when Greyland, her two older brothers, and distinguished father make their debut. Who is this family? How do they know The Queen? Why does the patriarch look like the ghost of the long-ago Plantagenet King, Edward the IV? Alexander Hamilton, the notoriously dangerous "Dark Lord" and new Duke of Ravenswood, is about to learn how unique the family is when he becomes unwittingly entangled with the Kingstons from New Orleans—one family member in particular. With her spirited personality and innocent aversion to all things proper, Greyland Kingston completely throws him off his well-established game. When trouble ensues in the form of jealous women, ambitious men, and a vengeful Irish clan, Alexander quickly finds having Greyland for his own will come at a steep price… And he must risk everything to keep her protected. BOOK TWO SUMMARY: Edward Kingston, Earl of Wellington, lives by a strict moral code: Indulge in pleasure. Edward lets his family represent the Kingston name with proper responsibility, while he secures the title of "Overall Cad". However, he makes an irreversible mistake by obliging one small favor -- a dance lesson. Morgan Sinclair needs a tolerable husband, and quickly. A season away with London’s elite Bon Ton should help. Her aunt, the duchess, will make Morgan the perfect debutante. Many lessons are necessary first; her future depends on it. But with the Earl of Wellington as her charismatic dance master, they soon find themselves in a situation neither of them expected: Love. The notorious Kingstons have a turbulent past of mystery and betrayal, but Morgan Sinclair has her own secrets looming. The couple must learn to navigate unprecedented obstacles… If their relationship is to survive. BOOK THREE SUMMARY: Perkin Kingston’s distinguished good-looks and keen political mind stood out among The Queen's shining court. Perhaps too well... The oldest of the Kingston siblings and the new Duke of York, Perkin blames his father’s murder on a five-hundred-year-old Order. Exacting his revenge is right on course, until he uses the wrong tapestry to wipe clean his blood-soaked sword. Shay Gallagher could forgive the tapestry, and the duke’s mercurial murderous ways, but stealing her already dwindling household staff to supply his mercenary laden war camp, is too much to abide. She is ready to do whatever it takes to put the newly arrived, unreasonably attractive, dangerously intelligent, and slightly broken laird in his place. Perkin must see his family's past wrongs made right. Even with new challenges emerging daily. Namely, the beautiful blonde lass at the bottom of the hill, challenging his rule, his life’s mission, and his very heart. Can he keep his priorities straight while in Ireland, with its lush landscape, steeped in lore and history? A tumultuous past that will either... Side with the Kingston’s or see them dead.

Book Short Summary:

★★★★★ “Second-chances, letting the past go, telling truths we are afraid to reveal, overcoming fears and keeping on fighting even when life throws us a curveball.” Read What I Like Blog The bigger the secret, the harder it is to hide. Single mom Isabella York was a celebrity before she had her first kiss, her first date, or her first sip of alcohol. Playing the bad girl--both on and off the set--allowed her to make up for lost time. While making an all-too-public mess of her life. Back home in Boston, with her “checkered past” behind her, all she wants is to raise her little girl far away from the spotlight. But when a job offer she can’t refuse means she has to work side-by-side with an unforgettable one-night stand, Bella has a choice to make. Revealing her past could mean losing everything, or gaining more than she ever hoped. For her, and her daughter. It’s not that Henry Smith hates kids--they don’t like him. Meanwhile, he’s stuck producing children’s TV, so he’ll try to tone down the grumpiness that’s dogged him since his life imploded seven years ago. After all, not everyone gets a second chance to chase his dream. If he plays his cards right at this new gig, he can move on to making television that will change the world, not just entertain a bunch of brats. Maybe he can charm the woman he never thought he’d see again into a do-over while he’s at it. In this sexy, heartwarming not-quite-historical romance, the latest Boston Classics standalone romcom, a sunshine/grumpy pair has to face the past to before they can find a future… together. ★★★★★ “5 '80s loving' stars for this fourth installment of Karen's Boston Classics!!” Pixiedustreads ★★★★★ “One of the most delightful books I’ve read all year...As secret baby books go, this is one of my favorites… Grey’s writing is whip-smart with wonderful dialogue (especially the voices in Bella’s head), interesting developments, and steamy sexy times.” Once Upon a Page Blog ★★★★★ “If you are a fan of a nostalgic 80s romance with a hot grumpy yet caring man, a determined strong single mama, a sweet and smart little girl (secret baby!), the perfect touch of steam, forced proximity, a little bit forbidden workplace romance, catching up with some favorite past characters, some dark issues, and a swoon-worthy heartfelt HEA, then you will absolutely adore this book.” @JodiReadsNListens ★★★★★ “A funny, sweet, sometimes emotional, but ultimately heartwarming story featuring endearing, three-dimensional characters and a well-crafted second chance romance.” Laurie Reads Romance ★★★★★ “Grey did an amazing job with the secret baby/second chance romance in Child of Mine. Both tropes can be hit or miss, but Ms. Grey took the ball and ran with it and gave her readers a funny, sexy, and endearing story.” Blogging by Liza ★★★★★ “Lots of nostalgia, loads of humor, just enough drama to keep it interesting but not too much to overload you, and overwhelming feelings of love and happiness in the end.” LA Loves Romcoms ★★★★★ “If you enjoy a secret baby romance, a second chance, and workplace romance, a really sweet and very smart child, and handling the aftermath of being a child TV star (ie. substance abuse, rehab and everything that goes along with it, which is well researched and very well handled in the story context), you will surely love this one as much as I did!” Bella Reads Romance ★★★★★ “One of my favorites of the series, if not the best for me!” Lisa Loves Literature ★★★★★ “The characters are extremely well developed and I feel their emotions, they are so relatable.” Books of My Heart ★★★★★ “An adorable kid, a dog, a bookstore, a couple of cats, and some family drama and I was a happy camper.” Carole’s Random Life in Books ★★★★★ “Child of Mine was a great rom com read and I HAVE to go back and read the other books in the series. While I'm late to the game, Karen Grey's writing has me completely hooked!” LB Book Blog ★★★★★ “Delivers every single one of her characters with so much care and love and you can feel that as you turn the pages.” Anna Reads Here ★★★★★ “Second chances, undeniable attraction, well-written characters, the ugly and unforgiving side of fame and success, and love that spans time and space.” Currant 7 Recommends ★★★★★ “Babies and Bookshop Cats and Shakespeare, oh my!... an outrageously fun, touching, cheeky retro romcom. Karen Grey has outdone herself once again with more 80’s fun!! Run, don’t walk back in time to dive into this spectacular second-chance, secret baby retro romcom with a lot of heart and plenty of steam!!” Bookbub review ★★★★★ “The perfect continuation of a series I hope lasts forever… serious, sweet, saucy, and sexy, sexy, sexy all rolled into one.” Bookbub review ★★★★★ “The emotions--the feelings her characters are going through--rock your world.” Bookbub review ★★★★★ “Heartwarming, fun, humorous, and with witty banter, emotions, secrets, and is a heartfelt and steamy riveting page turner.” Bookbub review ★★★★★ “Each time I think I’ve read the best book in the series, and each time the author proves me wrong. This time, she tackles various subjects like child celebrities, addictions, single parenthood, and family conflicts, with her swooniest hero so far and a strong independent heroine. It was fun, sweet, sexy.” Goodreads review ★★★★★ “I loved Bella and Henry. Both had real human weaknesses and were definitely not depicted as "perfect" characters, what with Bella's difficulty in opening up to others, her temptation to addictive substances, and Henry's career devotion, his occasional grumpiness and temper, as well as his uncomfortable interactions initially with the kids on the show. Their warts just made them more interesting and relatable.” Bookbub review ★★★★★ “Grey is able to insert humor where appropriate to keep the book from being too heavy but without taking away from the seriousness of the topics she chose to tackle in the book. This one was heavy in the feels and I even had tears in my eyes more than once.” Bookbub review

Book Short Summary:

Applauded for her unique ability to blend romance, history, and the wonders of the paranormal into unforgettable novels, Tracy Fobes has taken her flair for the otherworldly to the Scottish Highlands, where a mysterious beauty discovers her true identity. The villagers think her one of the fairy-folk, for she was found wandering the Highlands at the age of four, able to communicate with the creatures of the moors. Now eighteen, Sarah quietly uses her gift to heal wounded animals. But when word of the lovely changeling spreads, her peaceful existence is shattered. Convinced Sarah is his long-lost daughter, the powerful Duke of Argyll offers to bequeath her his estate if she will but take her place in society. Her first duty is to become a lady -- under the tutelage of the duke's erstwhile heir, the dangerously provocative Earl of Cawdor. Sarah savors the simmering passions the cynical earl arouses in her even as she suspects he is merely using seduction to secure his birthright. In this civilized world where desire and deception are one and the same, how can she ever trust in love?

I absolutely loved this book. What a wonderful story! The mystery that began in Rose of Ebony is solved in the romance of Natasha and Raymond. These are terrific characters. It's easy to believe that they could walk out of the pages and into your living room. Thanks once again, Tracy Cooper-Posey for giving us another great story and for giving me back my love of historical romances. I was waiting for the continuing story of Lord Raymond and when I read this book I knew the wait was worth it. This was an awesome book and answered the question, "Who is Susanna?". I love historical romances and this one filled all my likes, from a dashing, wonderful hero, a beautiful strong heroine, a love story to sigh over, side characters that are interesting, and funny, and move the story along, and in this one a mystery that is solved. This story was so beautiful and I can't wait for the next in this wonderful new series. When the mystery of Susanna is unexpectedly solved...it's a moment of crackling tension. I don't often give books five stars, but I really enjoyed the mystery that puzzled all of the characters in this story. Tracy Cooper-Posey did it again in my book. I fell in love with "Soul of Sin". After reading "Rose of Ebony" I couldn't stop asking who is Susanna that I couldn't wait for "Soul of Sin". I never would have guessed who "Susanna" was!

Book Short Summary:

Lord Salwicke is a very rich but worried man. His beautiful daughter, Tasia, is already twenty years of age, which has dampened his hopes of her taking London by storm. Though not quite an old maid, he fears she may have missed her chance for wedded bliss. So he decides to take matters into his own hands and finds her a suitable husband. But Tasia is not a young lady who likes being told what to do. Headstrong and stubborn she envisages marriage to a man who loves her, not a union of convenience to a man she hasn't met. Determined to show her father the error of his ways, Tasia masquerades as a tutor and manages to obtain employment as teacher to the Earl of Linsdale's two young sons, Peter and Simon. The boys have already frightened off previous learned tutors by their bad behaviour and flat refusal to take part in lessons. Entering the Earl's home, Tasia soon learns that due to an unhappy early marriage, the Earl has set his face against all women, seeing them as untrustworthy and inferior in every way to a man. Believing that she can win the trust of the two boys, and spark an interest in learning before the return of the Earl, she sets to work with the help of her beloved cocker spaniel, Jimbo. But two dark clouds hang over the schoolroom threatening Tasia and the happiness she finds with her young charges. Firstly the fear of being found by her father and forced home to get married, and secondly worry that the Earl might return home unexpectedly and demand to know why his wishes regarding the education of his sons have been ignored. A loving but strict father, the Earl has his own ideas about the way two young men should be educated - and they could not be further away from the new regime that Tasia has installed since her arrival. Will Tasia be able to hide out until she has proved a point to her father? Will her success as a tutor challenge the Earl's opinions of women? As the clouds loom ever closer Tasia faces the biggest decisions of her life - to conform or stand up for her beliefs and hold out for true love.

Book Short Summary:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens returns to the world of the Cynsters’ next generation with the tale of an unconventional nobleman and an equally unconventional noblewoman learning to love and trust again. A jilted noblewoman forced into a dual existence half in and half out of the ton is unexpectedly confronted by the nobleman who left her behind ten years ago, but before either can catch their breaths, they trip over a murder and into a race to capture a killer. Lord Grayson Child is horrified to discover that The London Crier, a popular gossip rag, is proposing to expose his extraordinary wealth to the ton’s matchmakers, not to mention London’s shysters and Captain Sharps. He hies to London and corners The Crier’s proprietor—only to discover the paper’s owner is the last person he’d expected to see. Izzy—Lady Isadora Descartes—is flabbergasted when Gray appears in her printing works’ office. He’s the very last person she wants to meet while in her role as owner of The Crier, but there he is, as large as life, and she has to deal with him without giving herself away! She manages—just—and seizes on the late hour to put him off so she can work out what to do. But before leaving the printing works, she and he stumble across a murder, and all hell breaks loose. Izzy can only be grateful for Gray’s support as, to free them both of suspicion, they embark on a joint campaign to find the killer. Yet working side by side opens their eyes to who they each are now—both quite different to the youthful would-be lovers of ten years before. Mutual respect, affection, and appreciation grow, and amid the chaos of hunting a ruthless killer, they find themselves facing the question of whether what they’d deemed wrecked ten years before can be resurrected. Then the killer’s motive proves to be a treasonous plot, and with others, Gray and Izzy race to prevent a catastrophe, a task that ultimately falls to them alone in a situation in which the only way out is through selfless togetherness—only by relying on each other will they survive. A classic historical romance laced with crime and intrigue. A Cynster Next Generation-connected novel—a full-length historical romance of 115,000 words Praise for The Secrets of Lord Grayson Child "This full-bodied novel should please all long-time fans of novels about romance and intrigue set in nineteenth-century England." Virge B., Proofreader, Red Adept Editing “Two old lovers embark on an investigation that is brimming with danger and intrigue. Their simmering, suspenseful tale is one that fans of Regency romance dare not miss.” Angela M., Copy Editor, Red Adept Editing “After ten years apart, former lovers Lord Grayson Child and Lady Isadora Descartes work together to solve a high-stakes mystery (and) secrets from their past. Is it wise to rekindle their romance, or will the search for love be their undoing? The attention to detail in both setting and characters brings the story to life. Fans of Regency romance are sure to enjoy uncovering The Secrets of Lord Grayson Child." Brittany M., Proofreader, Red Adept Editing

Book Short Summary:

 The late 1960s and early 1970s saw the birth of modern feminism, the sexual revolution, and strong growth in the mass-market publishing industry. Women made up a large part of the book market, and Gothic fiction became a higher popular staple. Victoria Holt, Mary Stewart and Phyllis Whitney emerged as prominent authors, while the standardized paperback Gothic sold in the millions. Pitched at middle-class women of all ages, Gothics paved the way for contemporary fiction categories such as urban fantasy, paranormal romance and vampire erotica. Though not as popular today as they once were, Gothic paperbacks retain a cult following—and the books themselves have become collectors’ items. They were also the first popular novels to present strong heroines as agents of liberation and transformation. This work offers the missing chapters of the Gothic story, from the imaginative creations of Ann Radcliffe and the Brontë sisters to the bestseller 50 Shades of Grey.

Get your copy of Dragon Kin today! __ Praise for Dragon Kin I've read so many books about King Arthur, from Morte d'Arthur to scholarly theses on the true origin of King Arthur. This series is without a doubt the BEST!!! Every book I read by Tracy Cooper-Posey is like an intricate puzzle piece. It’s beautiful and unique on its own, but when you study it from different angles you find out it’s just a piece of the bigger picture and this author gets the pieces to click into place in the most interesting and unpredictable ways. I love that I learn new things from reading one of Cooper-Posey’s books while at the same time experience action, adventure and romance...and not that stupid love-at-first-sight-everything-works-out-the-way-we-want romance, either. She writes earthy, emotionally charged, realistic love stories. ABSOLUTELY beautiful story! The characters are so well written, you feel like you are in the middle of their world, interacting with them on a personal level! OMG. I love this story, it's a grand classic of historical romance. Oh how I'd love to see this as a movie. Tracy just nailed it once again. I loved this one so much! I spent the entire book telling myself to slow down and savor the tale and also not being able to put the book down. What a great book! It’s not a short book, but reads like one. The dialogue moves the plot, the action moves the plot, even the narrative does not waste a single word. I read the book twice because I liked it so much. This is a wonderful book! OMG, I didn’t want this one to end (3000 pages might’ve been enough). I haven’t stopped thinking about this book since i finished it last week-wondering what else might have gone on in their lives. Any time my husband was trying to get my attention while reading this novel I told him, "I can't help it. I'm over a 1,000 years away falling in love with a king and making friends with the Lady of the Lake!" This series puts Tracy Cooper Posey up there with the great Arthurian writers like Stewart and Bradley. Her vivid descriptions and historical snippets add so much to an already great story that I could not put it down.
