Blurb:
Georgianne Whitley’s beloved father and brothers died in the war against Napoleon Bonaparte. While she grieves for them, she must deal with her unpredictable mother’s sorrow, and her younger sisters’ situation.

Georgianne’s problems increase when the arrogant, wealthy but elderly Earl of Pennington, proposes marriage to her for the sole purpose of being provided with an heir. At first she is tempted by his offer, but something is not quite right about him. She rejects him, not suspecting it will lead to unwelcome repercussions.

Once, Georgianne had wanted to marry an army officer. Now, she decides never to marry ‘a military man’ for fear he will be killed on the battlefield. However, Georgianne still dreams of a happy marriage before unexpected violence forces her to relinquish the chance to participate in a London Season sponsored by her aunt.

Shocked and in pain, Georgianne goes to the inn where her cousin Sarah’s step-brother, Rupert, Major Tarrant, is staying, while waiting for the blacksmith to return to the village and shoe his horse. Recently, she has been reacquainted with Tarrant—whom she knew when in the nursery—at the vicarage where Sarah lives with her husband Reverend Stanton.

The war in the Iberian Peninsula is nearly at an end so, after his older brother’s death, Tarrant, who was wounded, returns to England where his father asks him to marry and produce an heir.

To please his father, Tarrant agrees to marry, but due to a personal tragedy has decided never to father a child.

When Georgianne arrives at the inn, quixotic Tarrant sympathises with her unhappy situation. Moreover, he is shocked by the unforgivable brutal treatment she has suffered. Full of admiration for her beauty and courage he decides to help Georgianne.

Celebrate Romance – No It’s Not Winter Already

When you think romance, usually Valentine’s Day comes to mind.  But there is another month that readers of romance books should keep in mind. August is Read a Romance Month – a time for readers of romance to celebrate the genre.

Read-A-Romance Month was conceived and launched in 2013 by freelance writer and romance advocate Bobbi Dumas after she realized there was no one place where the community celebrated romance all together, at one time, in a concentrated way. She says she picked August was chosen because summer reading tends to be lighter fare, and even eclectic readers tend to pick up more romance.

“Why Read-A-Romance MONTH?! I read romance every day!”
Don’t worry. Think of it more as the month when we come together to CELEBRATE romance! A time when readers and writers can come together and celebrate this joyful, awesome genre.

My contributions to romance this year are Windmaster and Hatchling’s Vengeance. Click on the covers or the title links for more on these fantasy romances.

Fantasy, contemporary, historical and more, it doesn’t matter the subgenre. We all need a little romance in our life. Grab a romance and open the page. It’s Read A Romance Month.

Featured

Cast off and set sail for love and adventure with Windmaster. Historical fantasy, sword and sorcery, romantic fantasy fill the holds. Available at Amazon

Despite his insolent attitude, Ellspeth, captain of Sea Falcon, is attracted to the dark-haired dockworker she hires to help unload the vessel’s cargo. The supposed dockhand reveals he is Lord Dal, the last member of the Council of Wizards, and her passenger. Bringing him back from near-death releases Ellspeth’s latent powers and threatens her captaincy. For magic and the sea don’t mix.

In accordance with an ancient prophecy, Dal allows Ellspeth to be handfasted to him without her knowledge or consent. However, the prophecy doesn’t state whether she will return his love. A likelihood threatened as the deception is unveiled and Dal is captured and stripped of his powers by fanatical clerics bent on ridding the world of magic and those who wield it.

Revenge set Ellspeth and Da on the path to her destiny, but prophecy controlled the journey and demands a choice. Ellspeth must choose between her own survival, saving the future of magic… or love.

Tuesday’s Title – Enchantment of a Highlander

Love is the most potent of remedies.

Enchantment of a Highlander

Historical Romance by Madeline Martin.

The sweeping historical romance that began with DECEPTION OF A HIGHLANDER, and continued with POSSESSION OF A HIGHLANDER, reaches its dazzling conclusion in this scorcher set on the Scottish plains.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of Enchantment of a Highlander as part of the TheRomanceReviews anniversary event. That did not make me read the book from cover to cover, the description, the historical setting, fine prose and strong, sensuous characters did. More on Enchantment of a Higlander including a behind the scenes note can be found here. Be sure to click through if you like foxes. Not just human, but the animal kind as well.
