The third novel in the Blackshear Family series, A Woman Entangled by Cecilia Grant is somewhat more closely linked to the previous book, as we get to see how Will’s scandalous attachment to a former mistress has affected Nick Blackshear’s prospects.

However, since his brother’s marriage his cases have been few and far between, with his political endeavours becoming even more of an uphill struggle. Nick was one…

A Gentleman Undone by Cecilia Grant UK cover

A Gentleman Undone, the second book in the Blackshear Family series by Cecilia Grant, introduces us to Will Blackshear, brother of Martha from book one, but can easily be read as a standalone title. The book begins with a flashback to Will’s days in the army at Waterloo, and the loss of one of his comrades. He is haunted by these events, as he feels responsible for the soldier’s death and wishes to make amends with the widow, by bestowing her with enough money to live independently. By no means…

Despite not having read this series in order, there is nothing in Lady Jenny’s Christmas Portrait by Grace Burrowes that might spoil the previous books in the Windham series, making this an easy read for the festive season.

However, his portfolio is lacking portraits of children, of which the Academy board would like to see to show that he can capture every aspect of life.

The Trouble with Being Wicked by Emma Locke cover

Kicking off a new historical romance series, The Trouble with Being Wicked by Emma Locke is the first in The Naughty Girls series, and I think we can expect a lot from these more scandalous characters of the ton. The book begins with the arrival of Celeste Gray and her pregnant companion, Elizabeth, to the quiet town of Brixcombe, on the English coast. Both are seeking an escape from their busy, scandalous lives in London, wishing to find a suitable retreat for the birth of Elizabeth’s baby. As if this…

A Little Night Mischief

Felicity Wilcox is an uncommon young woman who is determined to get her way, no matter what the circumstances against her – or what she has to do in order to win. James Collington is driven by his past into actions which make Felicity’s future plans an impossibility and neither of them look likely to bend. Felicity and James do not meet in the most opportune of circumstances, but there is an instant attraction between them which they are refreshingly open about despite the historical setting of the novel. This…
