The Raided Heart

The Raided Heart (The Historic Books #1)

by Jennifer C. Wilson

Synopsis:

Meg Mathers, the headstrong youngest sibling of a reiving family on the English-Scottish border, is determined to remain at her childhood home, caring for the land and village she’s grown up with. When an accident brings her a broken ankle and six weeks in the resentful company of ambitious and angry young reiver Will Hetherington, attraction starts to build. Both begin to realise they might have met their match, and the love of their lives, but 15th century border living is not that simple, as Meg soon finds herself betrothed to the weakling son of a tyrannical neighbour, Alexander Gray. When tragedy strikes, can Meg and Will find their way back to each other, and can Will finally take his own personal revenge on Gray?




Christie’s Review

4 STARS

 

The Raided Heart is a beautiful and emotional historical saga!

 

Meg is the youngest child of a reiving family. She has taken the place as the matriarch since her mother’s death. She is a strong woman who is protective of her family and the land she has grown up on. One night when her brothers and their band of reivers return, Meg sprains her ankle, and her brothers make young Will care for her since they blame him for the accident. 

Will is pretty resentful and doesn’t want to be stuck taking care of a woman. However, as the two spend more time together, this unlikely pair fall deeply in love. That happiness doesn’t last long as Meg is promised to marry Alexander Gray, a neighbor. This is when the novel gets very emotional. Gray is a terrible person, and I’m putting that mildly! He epitomizes the meaning of a villian. 

Meg has to endure a great deal living with him. Despite their separation, Meg and Will’s love doesn’t fade. It somehow grows stronger. They are in a race to find a way to find their HEA despite the danger that may pose to both of them.

The book is a beautiful love story yet it is also an adventure. The author goes into detail with the raids and really puts the reader into the story. It is also filled with intrigue because Gray and Will share a connection because of their past. 

If you are looking for a book that is a breath-taking romance and adventure, you can’t go wrong with this historical fiction book! Looking forward to more in the series!

Title: Ribbons of Scarlet

Authors: Laura Kamoie * Kate Quinn * Stephanie Dray * Sophie Perinot * Heather Webb * E. Knight

Genre: Historical Fiction

About Ribbons of Scarlet:

Ribbons of Scarlet is a timely story of the power of women to start a revolution—and change the world.

 

In late eighteenth-century France, women do not have a place in politics. But as the tide of revolution rises, women from gilded salons to the streets of Paris decide otherwise—upending a world order that has long oppressed them.

Blue-blooded Sophie de Grouchy believes in democracy, education, and equal rights for women, and marries the only man in Paris who agrees. Emboldened to fight the injustices of King Louis XVI, Sophie aims to prove that an educated populace can govern itself–but one of her students, fruit-seller Louise Audu, is hungrier for bread and vengeance than learning. When the Bastille falls and Louise leads a women’s march to Versailles, the monarchy is forced to bend, but not without a fight. The king’s pious sister Princess Elisabeth takes a stand to defend her brother, spirit her family to safety, and restore the old order, even at the risk of her head.

But when fanatics use the newspapers to twist the revolution’s ideals into a new tyranny, even the women who toppled the monarchy are threatened by the guillotine. Putting her faith in the pen, brilliant political wife Manon Roland tries to write a way out of France’s blood-soaked Reign of Terror while pike-bearing Pauline Leon and steely Charlotte Corday embrace violence as the only way to save the nation. With justice corrupted by revenge, all the women must make impossible choices to survive–unless unlikely heroine and courtesan’s daughter Emilie de Sainte-Amaranthe can sway the man who controls France’s fate: the fearsome Robespierre.

Exclusive Excerpt:

National Convention

Paris, France

December 1792

“There she is, the harlot . . .”

“La femme Roland . . .”

“Traitorous slut . . .”

The whispers followed me as I made my way across the floor, looking neither right nor left. It was the first time a woman had been called to address the Convention, and I’d dressed for the occasion as though it were an honor: a blue gown that foamed about my feet as I stalked to the bar, a white fichu pinned with my tricolor cockade, red ribbons twined through my hair. A revolutionary patriot, top to toe. When I turned to face the questions, I let my eyes travel, bold and confident, to the high bleacher seats where the radical Jacobins held court.

Before the proceedings could even begin, some heckler from their ranks called, “How do you answer the charge of treason, citizeness?”

I replied with calm contempt. “The charge is ludicrous, and all here know it.”

It was a smear job of the crudest kind: an unsavory informer reporting he had discovered a London conspiracy to restore the king, and that my husband and I were complicit. My husband had already been summoned to account for himself and had perhaps not done as well as he might: he couldn’t hide his indignation, and he became flustered when the tone turned sneering. I would not give my questioners a chance to sneer.

“The informer states clearly, Citizeness Roland, that you—”

“I did not summon him.” I spoke briskly, taking the reins before my questioner could bring down the whip and speed this interrogation to the pace my enemies wanted. This was going to go at my pace, not theirs. “From my files of letters I can see the man wrote to me, asking for an interview with Minister Roland. I receive dozens of such requests every week.”

“You do not deny you received the man?”

“He paid a brief call, and from his probing I concluded he was sent to sound us out about some scheme or other.” I smiled. “Or perhaps I was wrong. I am a woman and not skilled in these matters.”

The questioner took turns with his colleagues, trying to turn my words on me, trying to talk me in circles. As long as I had listened to politicians drone over my dinner table, I could talk anyone in circles. I shredded their accusations and stamped the shreds underfoot, feeling the color rise in my cheeks—not embarrassment, but the fierce heat of pride. Was this what Roland felt when he addressed the Convention? This rush of power that tingled the fingertips, the confidence that my words were deploying like obedient soldiers and the crowd sat in the palm of my hand? Why would anyone who had command of this floor ever leave it?

Finally, I was excused to the sound of ringing applause among the deputies, the charge dismissed in full, the honors of the session formally accorded to me. I looked from Robespierre to Danton to Marat with a wide bland smile as I glided out, and the smile became a beam as my husband drew me into the nearest empty hall.

“Thank goodness it’s over.” His face was creased with relief. “Let me take you home, calm your nerves.”

“My nerves are calm, and I can take myself home. You stay, speak with those who need reassuring.”

He kissed my forehead. “I hated seeing you up there,” he muttered, before rushing back inside.

He’d hardly gone before a low voice spoke behind me, prickling my skin. “I loved seeing you up there. You were born to it.”

I turned, smile draining away. The man who loved me stood feet planted wide, arms folded, dark hair rumpled—he must have been waiting to catch me alone. “Citizen,” I managed to say, not daring to put his name through my lips.

“You were brilliant,” he said quietly. “Brave as a lioness.” A voice of calm power for a man not yet thirty-three. Six years younger than I, what did that say about me? “They should have known better than to try to trap you in so crude a snare.”

“That shabby excuse for a conspiracy might have been crude, but it was real, even if we had no involvement.” I kept my voice brisk, turning the conversation to safer waters. “As long as the king lives, there will be plots to restore him. The matter will have to be dealt with.”

“The king is just a man, and a small one.”

“With a long shadow.”

We both smiled involuntarily. It had always been like that with us, the eager cut-and-thrust of our minds. “If you wish to speak to my husband . . .”

But the man who loved me took my hand.

“Manon, I honor Roland and support him always. But I am here for you.”

Frat House Confessions: Wes by Bethany Lopez

Contemporary Romance

 

Synopsis:

She wants more than just his forgiveness…

Trixie’s not ashamed of the exposé she wrote for the college newspaper last year. She’s a woman who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to do whatever it takes to get the story, even if it meant lying to a friend to get the inside scoop.

Still, every time she sees Wes, she regrets the loss of someone she really enjoyed spending time with. Not one for labels, or someone who puts limitations on attraction, Trixie can’t deny the pull she feels toward Wes when they cross paths again.

He’s willing to do whatever it takes to change her perception of him…

Wes has always been the odd man out. Different than his brothers, he was always more comfortable playing video games or enjoying solitary moments in the pool.

Although he never expected someone as sexy as Trixie to fall for an inexperienced guy like him, he also never expected her betrayal. Now that he has a second chance, can he get her to see him as more than the nice guy she duped?


A year has passed, but anger and regret still linger. Can Wes and Trixie agree to put the past behind them and move forward, or will late night confessions prove to be more than they can forgive and forget?

Excerpt:

“There’s an open booth over there,” Starla said, moving toward the back left of the bar.

I followed close behind, the thought of my soon-to-be-ordered wings making my stomach growl.

I was thinking how good a large draft beer would go with said wings, when I looked to the right and saw two gorgeous guys. They had matching grins and dark hair, and were laughing up at the woman who was delivering their food.

One looked very familiar…

Wes.

My stomach clenched as his gaze shifted and landed on me, and my breath held as I waited for his acknowledgement. When he turned back to the server instead, without so much as a glimmer of recognition, my heart fell.

I was right… he hated me.

The Beltane Choice (The Celtic Fervour #1)  by Nancy Jardine Blog Tour with Review & Giveaway (Win x1 signed paperback of The Beltane Choice to one UK winner; X1 kindle copy worldwide)

The Beltane Choice (The Celtic Fervour #1) 

by Nancy Jardine

 

Synopsis

AD 71 Northern Roman Britain
Lorcan of the Brigantes knows that unity of the northern tribes is essential when the Ancient Roman legions advance northwards to Brigantia. Yet, everything comes at a price. Using his captive, Nara, as a political bargain with the Selgovae comes with impossible stipulations. Battle at Whorl – Iron Age tribes against the Romans – is inevitable.

Will Nara have her Beltane choice?

The adventures of the Garrigill Clan begin…




Christie’s Review

4 STARS

The Beltane Choice is not only a sweeping story of love between two sworn enemies but also a history lesson as well.

Nara is trying to escape a wild boar when she encounters Lorcan of Brigantes. He comes to her aid, but then she soon finds herself his prisoner. Lorcan is immediately under her spell; however, he also sees that she will be a great political asset for him as well. As she spends more time with him, he soon discovers that she means much more to him. His biggest war may not be on the battlefield but in his own heart. 

Nara is a woman before her time. She is strong and independent. Even if her own father doesn’t love her, she soon finds a home with Lorcan’s tribe. She is also facing an internal battle. She isn’t sure who to trust, her own family or the new family she has come to love. 

I’m a huge fan of history and romance, so this book was right up my alley. However, the author made this book stand out in the historical romance/fiction genre. It’s magical yet very realistic. I don’t know much about this period in history, and I felt like I learned a great deal. One of my favorite parts of the book was the author’s notes in the back. She gives her readers a great background of that period. This is a must read for historical fiction/romance fans.

Synopsis

Could you ignore the world’s hottest rock stars, if they moved into the villa next door? 

True love, humour and happy-ever-after. A sizzling romance read full of giggles, sunshine and searching for a soul mate in paradise by bestselling author Lizzie Chantree.

Brand new 2019 version!

Driving straight out of trouble and into paradise! A laugh out loud, contemporary romance read full of entrepreneurial women, powerful men and exotic locations.

Harriet’s crazily successful business idea is under serious threat, and the danger seems to be coming from inside her own family. She whisks her sister and her friends away to an exotic location to try and work out whose side they are on. It’s time to start damage limitation.

When the girls arrive at the glorious villa owned by Harriet’s maverick business partner Nikki, they find a gorgeous band and their sexy lead singer Max staying next door, out to entice their new neighbours into all kinds of trouble.

This isn’t a holiday for Harriet and she can’t afford to be distracted.

Harriet will have to choose between family and friends, business or pleasure. For someone who stays out of the limelight, even though her new company is the hottest ticket in town, she’s going to have to avoid the front pages of every newspaper if she wants to survive the ride!




Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Babe Driven was a fun, enjoyable read!

When I first saw the synopsis, I was excited to read this because I’m a huge fan of rock star romances. However, the synopsis only scratches the surface. The romance is only half of the story. 

The story is told from several POVs, but the main character is Harriet. She has a pretty successful business, but to keep it that way, she has come to a beautiful place to get “Mr. Grant” to invest in her idea. While there, she is also trying to repair her relationship with her half-sister. What she doesn’t expect is to fall in love with rock star, Max!

To say Harriet has a full plate would be an understatement. So many people, especially men, completely underestimate Harriet. When they figure out the powerful woman she is, it’s too late for them! I LOVED that!!!! She isn’t a woman to mess around with!

As I said, her relationship with Max is only a portion of the story. He appears to be the calmer, more stable part of her life. He isn’t your typical, bad boy rocker. He really cares about Harry, and he isn’t shy about letting her know that. 

I was just amazed at Harry’s character. In the beginning, I was just like all the others. I saw her as this woman with not much self-confidence who may let people take advantage of her. So, imagine my shock when that perception was blown out of the water. I liked her in the beginning, but I LOVED her in the end. 

If you are looking for a book with a strong female character with heart, you can’t go wrong with this one!!!

Lure Of ObsessionLure Of Obsession

By Lisa Kessler

Synopsis:

Fated Mates meets Clash of the Titans!


Melanie Jacoby is the human vessel for the Muse of Tragic Poetry, but she isn’t prepared for the tragedy of finding her roommate dead at the bottom of the stairs.

Nate Malone is the detective assigned to the case, but as the evidence points to an accidental fall, the visions begin. He sees a killer in a gold Kronos mask.

Mel is the next target, but Nate’s determination to protect her is almost as strong as his desire for her. 

And tragedy isn’t part of his plan.




Christie’s Review

4 STARS

 

Lure of Obsession is a perfect combination of romance, myth, paranormal, mystery, with a bit of thrills thrown in!!!

 

Melanie is the human vessel for the Muse of Tragic Poetry. Her world is rocked when she finds her roommate dead. Nate is the detective assigned to the case, and it’s apparent from their first meeting that they have insane chemistry. However, romance is only part of the story. It is an intriguing mystery with some pretty thrilling twists and turns. 

 

Not only is this told from her point of view but from Nate’s, the killer’s, and some other nefarious characters. That really makes the book even better! 

 

The characters of Melanie and Nate are more than they first appear. There are layers that make them such complex characters, and it was quite enjoyable seeing those layers peeled away to reveal something new about each one!

 

This was a solid read to what promises to be a quite intriguing series!!!!!

Manipulated Lives

Manipulated Lives

by H.A. Leuschel

 

Synopsis:

Five compelling true-to-life stories each highlighting a narcissist’s manipulative mind games.


Narcissists are everywhere

They can be witty, charming and highly charismatic.

Anyone can be their target.

At first their devious, calculating mind games can be hard to spot because they are masters of disguise, but then they revert to their true self of being controlling and angry in private. Their main aim: to dominate and use others to satisfy their needs, with a complete lack of compassion and empathy for their victim. 

All stories highlight to what extent narcissistic abuse can distort lives and threaten our self-worth yet ultimately, also send a positive message that once the narcissist is unmasked, the victims can at last break free.





Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Wow!!! This is quite the psychological thriller, yet it’s different! This is a book full of short stories that every person should read. 

As the synopsis states, “ Narcissists are everywhere. Anyone can be their target.” That statement is 100 percent accurate. Three of the books are told from the victims’ points of view, one an elderly woman, one who is in her thirties, and a young teenager. What the three have in common is a master manipulator in their lives who have hurt them, some physically and all mentally. Each woman is from a different walk of life, from different socio-economic backgrounds. 

The last two stories give an insight into the mind of the narcissists. What a fascinating and scary look into the mind of a psychopath! The journey of these victims was amazing. I loved seeing them find the strength to escape and find a new path to happiness.
