Red Pump Romance Reviews

NEW Red Pump Final2One of the things I love about Collette’s writing is her total immersion into the period. Some authors tip toe around the historical elements, peppering their writing with just enough to be accurate for the critics. Collette, on the other hand, writes as if she lived it. Everything from the setting details to the smallest phrase a secondary character might say is spot-on and makes the reading experience spectacular.

If you’ve just found Collette Cameron, you’re just in time. Triumph and Treasure is the first in a brand new 6-book series called Highland Heather Romancing a Scot.

Angelina Ellsworth follows her heart, only to be jilted by a bigamist and sent away from Boston, MA to live with her aunt and uncle in England. Hiding away in the country, pretending to be widowed to excuse her pregnancy, she tries to keep scandal away from her loving family. No more romance – never marry again – one by one Angelina makes herself a set of rules to live by. But when her hero literally arrives on horseback to help her down from the tree she’s climbed, saving her from a raging bull, what’s a girl to do but fall in love with her knight?

When the Marquis of Bretheridge returns to his family estate, desperation sets in at the ruin his father left behind. The last thing he needs, while taking care of his sick mother, is an arranged marriage, to a woman he’s never met, that’s carrying another man’s child. But sometimes fate has plans we don’t understand, but have to trust, to find happiness.

You’ll have to read the book to know how all this, plus a triple rainbow and turtle-doves, all fit together. Triumph and Treasure will have you hooked! And while you’re waiting for book #2 in the series to come out in 2015, you can go back and read her original trilogy.

5 RED PUMPSTriumph and Treasure gets 5 Red Pumps!

CoverA disillusioned Scottish gentlewoman.
Angelina Ellsworth once believed in love—before she discovered her husband of mere hours was a slave-trader and already married. To avoid the scandal and disgrace, she escapes to the estate of her aunt and uncle, the Duke and Duchess of Waterford. When Angelina learns she is with child, she vows she’ll never trust a man again.

A privileged English lord.
Flynn, Earl of Luxmoore, led an enchanted life until his father committed suicide after losing everything to Waterford in a wager. Stripped of all but his title, Flynn is thrust into the role of marquis as well as provider for his disabled sister and invalid mother. Unable to pay his father’s astronomical gambling loss, Flynn must choose between social or financial ruin.

When the duke suggests he’ll forgive the debt if Flynn marries his niece, Flynn accepts the duke’s proposal. Reluctant to wed a stranger, but willing to do anything to protect her babe and escape the clutches of the madman who still pursues her, Angelina agrees to the union.

Can the earl and his Scottish lass find happiness and love in a marriage neither wanted, or is the chasm between them insurmountable?

Red Pump Romance Reviews

NEW Red Pump Final2I Adored a Lord by Katharine Ashe, Book Two in the Prince Catchers series.

My only disappointment in I adored a Lord is that my schedule didn’t afford me the time to read book #1 in the series first.  I adored a Lord is definitely a stand-alone book, but I really like series and I can’t wait to go back and read I Married the Duke, the story of Ravenna’s older sister, Arabella.

Anyway, you should know by now that I love a strong heroine. Ms. Ashe did not disappoint! Ravenna Caulfield was orphaned as a small child, along with her two sisters. She has a tender heart and cares for her guardians’ animals, as well as those of her neighbors. She’s an invited guest at the home of Prince Sebastiao, who is supposed to be picking a wife from among the many young ladies present. But catching the eye of the prince is the last thing on her mind.

Lord Vitor Courtenay has spent years serving his family and his country, jumping from adventure to adventure, dodging danger at every turn. He’s now been assigned the illustrious job of helping his half-brother find a wife. I think I fell in love with him the moment he championed a wallflower who was being mistreated by two society brats. And again when he welcomed a puppy (the runt of the litter) Ravenna stashed in his rooms.

This isn’t your ordinary romance. Ms. Ashe takes us on a mysterious journey when an uninvited guest turns up dead, wearing a full suit of armor. The trail to finding the killer is led by Ravenna and Vito’s investigation, as the local mayor is inept and their natural personalities draw them into following clues and pursuing answers. Their trust in each other, and their combustible attraction, grows as the adventure brings them together in some of the most intriguing romantic settings possible.

This series should be on the top of your TBR pile! But start with book #1. I know I’m backtracking as soon as I can and can’t wait for Eleanor’s story. She’s the only sister left; therefore she must be the Prince Catcher.

I Adored a Lord gets 5 Red Pumps!

5 Red Pumps

 

I Aodred a Lord

She’s intended for his brother. He’s destined for adventure. Then a dangerous mystery throws them together, and all they want is each other.

All that clever, passionate Ravenna Caulfield wants is to stay far away from high society’s mean girls.

All that handsome, heroic Lord Vitor Courtenay wants is to dash from dangerous adventure to adventure.

Now, snowbound in a castle with a bevy of the ton’s scheming maidens all competing for a prince’s hand in marriage, Ravenna’s worst nightmare has come true. Now, playing babysitter to a spoiled prince and his potential brides, Vitor is champing at the bit to be gone.

When a stolen kiss in a stable leads to a corpse in a suit of armor, a canine kidnapping, and any number of scandalous liaisons, Ravenna and Vitor find themselves wrapped in a mystery they’re perfectly paired to solve. But as for the mysteries of love and sex, Vitor’s not about to let Ravenna escape until he’s gotten what he desires…

Red Pump Romance Reviews

NEW Red Pump Final2Don’t you just love reading a series? I enjoy getting to know the characters on a deeper level, watching their families grow up, and seeing their world so clearly I feel like I could be their next door neighbor.

Today I’m sharing book #4 in Lori Wilde’s Cupid Texas series, Love With a Perfect Cowboy.

When Melody Spencer graduated from high school, she couldn’t get out of Cupid, Texas fast enough. She knew life had much more to offer in the Big Apple. And it does. Her boyfriend is a social-elite artist – she’s a successful advertising executive, about to celebrate a new promotion. Her little hometown is far behind her, as she rides the wave of what she thinks is happiness.

Until the bottom drops out of her entire world.

And who should walk in to help her pick up the pieces?  Ex-boyfriend and small town rancher, Luke Nielson. Did I mention he was her first love? And their families refuse to let go of a decade-old feud?

Ms. Wilde tells a story full of rich characters. She will make you laugh, cry, and get angry all on the same page. The push and pull of attraction is natural, never forced – in fact, you might want to grab a small fan and have it handy, as the chemistry between Melody and Luke is obvious from the beginning! The plot may not be new, but her unique style and twist make you pick up books one, two, and three in the series, if you haven’t read them already.

Cover

Cowboys always seem to have the most spectacular butts, probably from all that hard riding in the saddle. But Melody Spencer had long-ago wiped the dust of Cupid, Texas off her cute shoes…and done her best to forget the chiseled jaw, strong arms and those other assets of cowboy Luke Spencer. Their families might be part of a long-time feud, but he was her very first love even if it turned out they never wanted the same things.

But now Luke’s come striding back into her life, tempting her with the memories of long, lazy evenings and hot, passionate kisses. And he has an ulterior motive-as Mayor of Cupid, he knows Melody’s business savvy can help save their beloved hometown. His smooth-talking might get her to Texas, but that doesn’t mean he’ll get her in his bed. Still, people do say love can be more perfect the second time around …
