Red Pump Romance Reviews

NEW Red Pump Final2What if a small piece of heart-shaped sea glass, lost between the floorboards of a small beach house cottage, could bring good luck and happiness to those who visited?

What if Diana could travel from Kansas to California and start her life over after a series of excruciatingly painful events?

What if she could find true love again?

This is the first Beach House series book that I’ve read, so I have to admit that I had a hard time keeping up with some of the characters carried over from earlier releases. But I loved the story from the very beginning and was taken in by the wonderful description and scenery the author evoked. It’s a heartfelt story about new beginnings and finding love when and where you least expect it. I laughed and I cried – couldn’t put it down. The Cottage Next Door is a perfect short read that has me picking up books 1 and 2 for my TBR pile.

I give it 4 Red Pumps!

What should have been the best day in Diana Wagnor’s twenty-nine years easily turns into the worst when her job is downsized, she discovers her fiancé in bed with her best friend, and watches her cherished grandmother’s house burn to the ground.

Diana finds her answers at the cottage next door to the beach house with the help of a tall, sculptured, soft-spoken Californian, and a heart-shaped piece of sea glass.

Magnificent Monday

The Highlander’s Choice by Callie Hutton

The Highlanders Choice

The Scottish Highlands, 1815

Lady Sybil Lacey is every inch an English woman. She’s horrified her best friend is wedding a barbarian Scot. For aren’t Scots naught but brutish, whiskey-swilling lechers? So to find herself secretly attracted to the tall and devastatingly handsome Scottish laird of Bedlay Castle is quite disconcerting…

Liam MacBride is convinced that English ladies are silly sassenachs who think of nothing but social events and clothes. So why is he intensely drawn to Lady Sybil? All they do is quarrel…until loathing turns into undeniable lust.

A tempestuous, fiery romance between an English lady and a Scottish laird cannot end well.

A Short Excerpt

After a few minutes of staring up at his stony expression, Sybil said, “I can walk, you know.”

He shook his head and continued on.

“Are you angry about something?”

“Nay. ’Tis sorry I am for your injury, but if I had to spend another minute in that lass’s company, I might have been forced to tie my neck cloth around her mouth.”

Sybil covered her lips with her four fingers and giggled. “She is very young.”

“Aye. A curse to be sure.”

“You were young once.”

He raised his eyebrows at her. “Never that young, I can assure ye.”

They reached the castle, and with the others either at the picnic grounds or scavenging for the game, the great hall was quiet. Servants scurried about taking care of their afternoon chores. Liam stopped one of the young maids. “Is Mrs. Galbraith about?”

The maid gave a quick curtsy and said, “No, my laird. She went off to the market.”

Liam nodded and headed up the stairs. Sybil twisted in his arms and looked over his shoulder at the maid. “Is my lady’s maid, Bessie, nearby?”

“Nay, my lady. She went with Mrs. Galbraith.”

When he gained the second floor, he headed in the direction of her bedchamber. “What are you doing?”

“Bringing ye to yer bedchamber. Then I will get a cold compress for yer foot.”

“You can’t come into my bedchamber!”

He grinned. “Now, lass. Ye heard the maid. No one is about to assist ye. Dinna fash yerself.” He stopped in front of her door, shifting her body so he could unlatch the portal. “Here we are. I’ll place ye in the chair by the fireplace and get ye something for yer foot.”

It was disconcerting how the man had a habit of rescuing her and then ending up in her bedchamber. Either she’d become much more inept since she’d left England, or fate was having a grand time toying with her.
