Red Pump Romance Reviews

NEW Red Pump Final2I’ve been a fan of Cathy Maxwell for years. In fact, she’s one of the first romance authors I purchased (The Marriage Trilogy) when I joined Audible in 2008.

Somehow, I missed this story when it published as part of The One That Got Away, so I just had to sign up for this review.

Nightingale is a quick, single-setting read and I love ‘the one that got away’ theme. Putting one’s heart on the line is difficult at best. Doing it twice with the same person, one whom you never got over, is almost impossible. But Maxwell does a fantastic job of weaving a tale that’s thought-provoking, loveable, and full of rich characters despite this being a novella. Pain and tragedy, what-if, mixed with courage and second chances, Nightingale is a wonderful story that will warm your heart and make you believe in Happily Ever After, no matter what.

Nightingale gets FOUR AND A HALF Red Pumps!

CoverFate has brought them together – again.

At one time, Jemma had meant the world to Dane Pendleton, but then she betrayed their young love by marrying another for his title and fortune.

Now Time has turned the tables. Dane is wealthy, respected, knighted and the widowed Jemma has nothing but her pride.

His honor for hers . . .

Dane’s name is on the lips of every beauty in London. They whisper he learned “tricks” while he was in the Orient. But has he forgotten Jemma, now Lady Mosby, and what they had once meant to each other? And will he accept her devil’s bargain?

In every woman’s life, there is that one love who slipped away. The man who makes her wonder “what if?”

But is this a momentary madness or a chance to rekindle a love that could last a lifetime?

Terrific Tuesday

The-Earl’s-Mistress - MacLachlan Family and Friends #10 – by Liz Carlyle


Women rarely refuse the wicked Earl of Hepplewood, whose sensual skills are the stuff of legend. But when his new governess answers his proposition with a slap to his face, then stalks out with references in hand, Hepplewood finds more than his face is left burning . . .

Isabella Aldridge has brains, bravado, and beauty-but the latter is no use to a servant. With orphaned sisters to feed, eviction nearing, and Hepplewood’s words ringing in her ears, Isabella realizes she must barter her most marketable asset . . .

But when fate unknowingly sends Isabella back into Hepplewood’s arms, the earl must make an impossible choice-draw Isabella down into his sensual darkness, or behave with honor for the first time in his life.

Red Pump Romance Reviews

NEW Red Pump Final2Not having read Miss Lorret before, I decided to take the time and start with book #1, Daring Miss Danvers. Start with a bit of sassy romance, add in a murder mystery, along with the authors wit and charm, and you get a great start to a wonderful series.

Book #2, Winning Miss Wakefield, includes a jilted/ruined wallflower, a vowed-to-remain-single rogue, and a scheme to bring the wallflower’s ‘true love’ back to her.

Finding Miss McFarland is the third novel in the Wallflower Wedding Series and the best of them all! Delaney is determined to marry for money, which shouldn’t be difficult given the sizeable dowry she brings to the table, despite the ‘incident’ at her debut ball. Her goal is independence and freedom – a marriage in ‘name only’. When Mr. Croft overhears her proposition to a notorious rake, he decides to step in. Fate seems to be on his side and the more they ‘happen’ to run into each other, the more he realizes that she could be the perfect solution to his own situation.

There’s a reason why Miss Lorret is on the USA Today bestseller list!  She does a great job of developing characters, as well as a secondary storyline that creates the perfect setup for her series. Her stories are full of sexy banter, deep emotion, and unexpected twists & turns. These are quick, ‘can’t put it down’ reads that will leave you warm and tingly. I’m glad I started at the beginning and read all three. At just $1.99 each, I suggest you start at the beginning, too. I can’t wait to read her newest trilogy, The Rakes of Fallow Hall, coming 2015!

The full Wallflower Wedding Series gets FIVE Red Pumps!


Delaney McFarland is on the hunt for a husband—preferably one who needs her embarrassingly large dowry more than a dutiful wife. After the unspeakable incident at her debut, Delaney knows marrying for love is off the table, but a marriage of convenience—one that leaves her free to live the life she chooses—is the next best thing, never mind what that arrogant, devilishly handsome Mr. Croft thinks. Delaney plans to marry for money … or not at all.

Ever since the fiery redhead burst into his life—in a most memorable way—Griffin Croft hasn’t been able to get Miss McFarland out of his mind. Now, with the maddening woman determined to hand over her fortune to a rake, Griffin knows he must step in. He must help her. He must not kiss her. But when Griffin’s noble intentions flee in a moment of unexpected passion, his true course becomes clear: tame Delaney’s wild heart and save her from a fate worse than death … a life without love.

Author Info

I fell in love with fairy tales and the romance behind happily ever after at a very young age. Like a lot of you, I tweaked the fables bit by bit in my imagination until they suited me perfectly. By the time I was eleven, a teacher encouraged me to start writing.

Throughout the years that followed, my teachers remained my most fervent supporters, giving me the tools I needed to continue my journey as a writer.

My husband and I have two teenage boys, who are heroes in their own right. For now, we live in a small Midwestern town near Lake Michigan…until a time in the future when a new adventure calls us to other shores.

I am currently working on my next novel, but I always enjoy hearing from my readers. Feel free to email me at
