Trapped and Liberated

by Bree Wolf

Synopsis

An English lady. A French privateer. And a chance encounter that was destined to be.

Long ago, ALEXANDRA WINTERS, LADY SILCOX, dreamed of love and the one man who would steal her heart. However, when her family needs her to agree to a sensible match in order to see her brother happily married, Alexandra gives up on finding love for herself.

Today, Alexandra is trapped in an arranged marriage, her hope for love dashed, and her only happiness comes from the little girl she gave birth to six years ago.
Until one night when destiny leads Alexandra down to the beach below Silcox Manor and into the arms of a French privateer.

After years of biding his time, ANTOINE DURET is finally made Captain of the Destinée, a French privateer. All his life, he has dreamed of nothing but sailing the seas, ignoring his father’s mumblings of finding the woman destined for him. Although he loves his family and enjoys taking his nephew on board, Antoine cannot imagine tying himself to another.
Until one night when an irresistible pull guides him to an English beach and a young lady tumbles into his arms.

Can there be a happily-ever-after for an English lady and a French privateer? Or is love truly just a myth that has no place in the real world?



Christie’s Review

~4.5 STARS~

Trapped and Liberated is the story of Alexandra and Antoine. Alexandra dreams of falling in love and finding a man that loves her just as much as she loves him. Those dreams crumble when she chooses her family over love. Antoine isn’t looking for love. All he dreams about is being captain of his own ship. All that changes the fateful night they meet. What could an English lady and French privateer have in common? Funny how love and destiny always has the answer….

Some people would see Alexandra as weak, accepting what was given to her in a society in which women had no rights. As I read more, I saw that she was a very brave woman, making the only choice she could for her daughter.

Antoine has no intention of giving his heart to anyone even though his father tells him one day he will find his true love. One night he feels a pull toward a beach in England for some reason. He can’t explain it, but he knows why once he lays eyes on Alexandra. It’s instant and powerful.

I was so glad to finally get Violet’s mother’s story. I was always mesmerized and curious about the woman who created such strong, independent daughter. Violet’s story is told in Condemned and Admired. The title for this book was perfect: Trapped and Liberated….that is the story of our beautiful Alexandra.

Sweet story about a woman and a man who share a magical love story and will make you believe in love at first sight and happy endings!

About Bree

profile_picture_01

USA Today bestselling author, Bree Wolf has always been a language enthusiast (though not a grammarian!) and is rarely found without a book in her hand or her fingers glued to a keyboard. Trying to find her way, she has taught English as a second language, traveled abroad and worked at a translation agency as well as a law firm in Ireland. She also spent loooong years obtaining a BA in English and Education and an MA in Specialized Translation while wishing she could simply be a writer. Although there is nothing simple about being a writer, her dreams have finally come true.

“A big thanks to my fairy godmother!”

Currently, Bree has found her new home in the historical romance genre, writing Regency novels and novellas. Enjoying the mix of fact and fiction, she occasionally feels like a puppet master (or mistress? Although that sounds weird!), forcing her characters into ever-new situations that will put their strength, their beliefs, their love to the test, hoping that in the end they will triumph and get the happily-ever-after we are all looking for.

LEGACY OF LIES by Tara Leigh

Releasing October 15

Blurb:

Money. Status. Wealth. Power.
I believed I was entitled to all of it.
My legacy.

Jolie Chapman.
I thought I was entitled to her, too.
My love.

In a scandal that set our families against each other, I lost.
My legacy.
My love.
Everything.

I was heir to a throne built on lies, my crown forged from corruption.
Stripped of everything I’d been raised to consider my birthright.
Including my princess—who wasn’t mine, after all.

I’ve spent the past decade rebuilding my life, on my own terms.
Money. Status. Wealth. Power.
They’ve been earned.

Now I’ve returned to Manhattan for redemption, too.
Jolie wasn’t supposed to be here.
… And I wasn’t supposed to care.

Screw me once, shame on you.
Screw me twice—
Who am I kidding? I don’t believe in second chances anymore.

I was called a prodigal son.
A scion of Midas.

I believed it. Why wouldn’t I?
Everything my father touched turned to gold.

The proof was all around me.
Luxury cars.
Elite schools.
A billion-dollar business.
Even my girlfriend, a Park Avenue Princess.

I reigned from a throne of lies.
My fall from grace… wasn’t graceful at all.

Yesterday’s Tears (Yesterday’s Paranormal Mysteries #5) by Sam Cheever Blog Tour with Review & Giveaway (6″ Kindle Paperwhite Ereader (U.S. Only))

Yesterday’s Tears (Yesterday’s Paranormal Mysteries)
by Sam Cheever

 

About the Book

Yesterday’s Tears (Yesterday’s Paranormal Mysteries)
Paranormal Mystery/Women Sleuths
5th in Series
Electric Prose Publications (September 28, 2018)
Print Length – Approximately 200 pages

It might be a murder from decades ago, but it still has its claws in the present…and someone seems determined to drag Anna into it.

It’s way too soon to be returning to a haunted mansion, and Anna’s favorite cowboy ghost does his best to talk her out of it. But the opportunity to pick from the beautiful antiques left to her in a Crocker resident’s will is just too tempting for Anna and Pratt to pass up. So they’re going in…

They’re prepared to deal with a few cold spots. Maybe the occasional flickering light. But what Anna and the boys weren’t counting on was bumping up against the ghost of Josiah Bumgartner, a contemporary of Joss’ from the 1800s. And when Josiah claims the old woman who lived in the house hid his bones around the place, Anna agrees to help him find them. But something much darker is at work there. And, unfortunately for our happy little gang of antique hunters…Anna seems to have unwittingly stepped right into the middle of it.



Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Yesterday’s Tears is book 5 in the Yesterday’s Mysteries Series. The author, Sam Cheever, expertly combines mystery with paranormal aspects. It’s definitely a book that will keep your attention from the first page until the last.

This book finds Anna and Pratt in a haunted mansion. She has inherited the place with beautiful antiques. Inside these walls lies evil, betrayal, and deadly secrets. However, Anna can’t seem to pass this up, not only for the antiques but in solving a mystery. Joss, Anna’s best friend who is a ghost is along for the ride as well. None of them would guess what they will encounter here..a disputed will and Josiah Baumgartner, a ghost and a person Joss knew in his past.

This is a very well-written book. Sam Cheever knows how to give her readers a little extra…a little more chills with the paranormal thrown in. I love her descriptive writing. Part of the chills was the mansion itself, and how Cheever described it. I also like the way she gives the ghosts a lifelike quality, who have agendas of their own. The entire series is great to read at this time of year with Halloween right around the corner!



About the Author

Let’s face it, nobody really cares that Sam Cheever is a USA Today Bestselling Author. Nobody cares that she’s written a whole ton of fun and snappy books. Let’s face it, the most interesting thing about Sam is the fact that she’s a dogaholic. Yeah, there’s no Dogaholic’s Anonymous chapter that can help her. Believe me, she’s looked. So Sam deals with her problem the best way she knows how. She digs into the mountains of personal experiences (mostly involving dog poo) to write GREAT dog characters.

Oh, and there are some people in her books too. She’s also pretty good at those.

Want to ask Sam about her dogs…erm…books? You can connect with her at one of the following places. Just don’t ask her why she has 15 dogs. Nobody in the whole wide world can answer that.
