Red Pump Romance Reviews

NEW Red Pump Final2You should know by now that Vivienne Lorret is one of my favorite authors. Tempting Mr. Weatherstone is the perfect short-story prequel to her Wallflower Wedding series, just in time for Christmas.

Penelope and Ethan have been neighbors and best friends since they were children. Such close friends, they can finish each other’s sentences and almost read each other’s minds. Good thing it’s almost, because somewhere between the age of fifteen and twenty-five, Penelope fell in love with Ethan. But can’t risk telling him.

Ethan’s life is organized, to say the least. His ledgers are impeccable, his life is predictable. His best friend and her father have dinner with him and his mother several nights a week. He knows his responsibilities and revels in the normalcy and stability of his structured environment. Until a spontaneous waltz opens his eyes to the most unexpected realization of all.

Fear of change, the unknown, the what-if …

Can two people, who are so perfect for each other, risk a life-long friendship by revealing their true feelings?

Tempting Mr. Weatherstone Gets FIVE Red Pumps!

 

Cover

Penelope Rutledge longs for passion, but only with the man of her dreams: the brilliant, dashing Ethan Weatherstone. If only her longtime neighbor would open his eyes and realize how much she loves him. If only they weren’t best friends with so much at stake. Penelope knows her future – and their friendship – is in her hands, but is she willing to take the biggest risk of all on the man she loves?

If it were up to Ethan, life and love would be as predictable as the figures in his ledgers – certainly nothing like the adventures Penelope longs for. Yet his childhood friend has grown into a beautiful, feisty woman blissfully unaware of the danger she causes when near. Ethan knows he must save Penelope-and her reputation…but can he save himself from the temptation of her lips?

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 vivienne@vivlorret.net

Red Pump Romance Reviews

NEW Red Pump Final2Victoria Alexander has been one my favorite authors since I read her Last Man Standing series several years ago. Her heroines always have such a wonderful and witty personality. Her heroes, well … are heroic, swooping in to save the day.

Lady Theodosia is head-strong, willing to discretely work hard to save her family from the awful embarrassment of being left penniless after her father’s death. Fooled by her deceased fiancé, she’s determined never to love again.

Jackson Channing is a New York City banker, born and raised in America. When the father he’d always thought was dead suddenly arrives on his doorstep, he’s faced with decisions he’d never imagined possible.

Jackson is a true hero, stepping in to save Theodosia from an unwanted marriage proposal. A fake engagement unexpectedly becomes the perfect solution to both their problems. Until a spontaneous kiss changes everything. And maybe, just maybe neither one of them want the arrangement to remain fake.

The Shocking Secret of a Guest at the Wedding is the fourth book in the Millworth Manor series, but it reads perfectly fine as a standalone. Victoria Alexander never disappoints and the holiday setting was an unexpected perk. I had a hard time putting it down, even when sleep or the day job required me to.

Until they do.

A mutually beneficial fake engagement will be accompanied by all manner of very real complications, scandalous revelations, nefarious schemes, and one inescapable conclusion: That true love—unlike the perfect wedding—is impossible to plan…

New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander was an award-winning television reporter until she discovered fiction was much more fun than real life. She turned to writing full time and has never looked back. Victoria grew up traveling the country as an Air Force brat and is now settled in a very old house in Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband, two allegedly grown children and two bearded collies. She firmly believes housework is a four-letter word, there are no calories in anything eaten standing up, procrastination is an art form, and it’s never too soon to panic.

NEW Red Pump Final2The series began with The Wicked Wallflower, starring London’s Least Likely to Misbehave. Next, came Wallflower Gone Wild, with London’s Least Likely to Cause a Scandal. And here we are with What a Wallflower Wants, featuring London’s Least Likely to be Caught in a Compromising Position.

You don’t have to read the whole series, each book can stand on its own, but I recommend starting at the beginning and enjoying each of the Wallflower’s stories in order. Ms. Rodale writes a fast-paced story, full of adventure and rich characters. And I promise you will fall in love with each of her heroines, Lady Emma Avery, Lady Olivia Archer, and Miss Prudence Merryweather Payton.

In this third book, Ms. Rodale’s wit shines through and there’s no shortage of shocking circumstances, starting with Miss Payton’s fiancé pushing her out of a carriage in hopes to use her as a scapegoat to save his own neck when their coach is robbed by a highwayman. Her stubbornness and sparkling interaction with Viscount Castleton will keep you turning page after page.

But I was most impressed by her sensitivity in handling Miss Payton’s past. A young woman full of scars and fears, found love and acceptance and overcame her personal turmoil. A hero willing to accept her as-is, teaching her that we all have a past, but it’s what we do with the future that matters. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that dealt with these issues in such a beautiful way.

What a Wallflower Wants gets FIVE Red Pumps!

 

CoverIn the third novel in Maya Rodale’s charming Wallflower series, London’s Least Likely to Be Caught in a Compromising Position finds temptation in a devilishly handsome stranger …

Miss Prudence Merryweather Payton has a secret. Everyone knows that she’s the only graduate from her finishing school to remain unwed on her fourth season-but no one knows why. With her romantic illusions shattered after being compromised against her will, Prudence accepts a proposal even though her betrothed is not exactly a knight in shining armor. When he cowardly pushes her out of their stagecoach to divert a highwayman, she vows never to trust another man again.

John Roark, Viscount Castleton, is nobody’s hero.  He’s a blue-eyed charmer with a mysterious past and ambitious plans for his future-that do not include a wife. When he finds himself stranded at a country inn with a captivating young woman, a delicate dance of seduction ensues. He knows he should keep his distance. And he definitely shouldn’t start falling in love with her.
