Forbidding and frightening, Lord Thatcham fascinated her. You have overreached yourself for the last time. For the future, you will stay out of my affairs, or you will no longer be welcome at Thatcham Hall. The Dowager watched, speechless, as he left. She cares nothing for rank unlike her mother.

It was such a beautiful and moving story of heartbreak and grief but also hope, joy and love. Was it so clear that he searched for anything to fill the void that had become his life? Andrew grew up in a world devoid of love, hardly ever seeing his parents, looked after by nannies. It left a void in his life, one he has filled with aimless pleasures but, deep down, he has always been seeking something more meaningful in his life.

Cast aside by her half-brother, after her father died and shunned by society, Ophelia is living in poverty in a small, rundown cottage, caring for her dying mother. Her zest for life and her dreams of becoming an artist have slowly faded beneath the pain and sorrow of losing the person she loves most in the world. How I imagine Lady Darlington… A soft smile played at her lips, one that bore all too much knowledge. No crushed flower was this woman. In that smile, in her withering gaze was an understanding of the world not many ever obtained.

For me, Lady Darlington is the linchpin of the story. She loves her daughter and wants only her happiness. She recognises the goodness in Andrew and knows he is perfect for her daughter. Even within the constraints of this novella. Ms Claremont infuses her writing with such emotional depth.

Ophelia and Andrew ceased to be simply characters on a page and became people I really cared about. Their journey was my journey. Their hopes and fears, their joy and tears were my hopes and fears, my joy and tears. In his eyes for one brief, holy moment, the world spun in a different direction, touched by beauty, touched by hope, touched by a strange sort of wonder. To his absolute chagrin, to his utter perversity, he was overwhelmed with a dancing, boyish glee. And so Andrew faced the piano with the mother of his heart, a little boy who finally knew he was loved, and was suddenly aware of how wonderful life could be.

And suddenly she was struck by an alarming realization. He was her other self. Her wild soul. Your strength, your kindness, your passion for life, they have all awakened what I had been so sure was dead. My soul. You have awakened my soul, Ophelia, because you are my other half.

The joy to my cynicism. The passion to my jaded nature. You have taught me to live with hope again. How I imagine Marcus Trent, Marquis of Vane… Once, Vane had been the most mischievous, the most boisterous, and the first to laugh of their school set. The man looked as if he might be suited for the position of undertaker. Not undertaker. He promises to be an intriguing hero! Lady Wild is a unique and beautifully written story that is both heart-breaking and uplifting. Highly recommended. I have a big goal for Lady Wild.

My mother died just a little under two years ago. She fought the battle with cancer and ultimately lost. Her last months were spent on Hospice. My father, too, died of cancer and spent his last 3 months on Hospice. Hospice helps with nursing, counselors, medication, and sometimes even bills. They provide relief for the caretaker. If you can snap up Lady Wild and spread the word??? Even better! This is for my parents, and on their behalf, I thank you. Love is a beautiful thing.

The novel is set against the harsh backdrop of the Viking era in the 9 th century, a time when the sight of a Viking longship sailing up the coast of Ireland would chill the blood of any man, woman or child. One young Irish woman, however, is not afraid of these Northmen, and a fateful encounter with one of them changes the course of her life forever. Selia is a girl on the verge of womanhood, frustrated by the confines of her gender and resentful of the freedom her brother boasts of. She is intelligent and resourceful in a time when neither is valued in a female, and longs for an escape from her sheltered existence.

He kept his distance from the men, clenching his hands and muttering to himself. Selia sat with her knees drawn up and her cloak wrapped tightly around her body in an attempt to fade into the background. She kept her eyes on Alrik as he paced like caged animal. They gave him a wide berth and kept their eyes lowered. The normally raucous laughter and bawdy jokes of the evenings were subdued this night. No one wanted to be the man who pushed Alrik beyond the point of no return.

Only Ulfrik dared approach him. He did so with an air of indifference, sipping his ale, as if he were accustomed to the task of having to talk Alrik back from the brink.

Ulfrik took a few steps away from the fire and motioned for Alrik to follow. He pulled out his sword and raised his eyebrows questioningly at Alrik. Selia stared, openmouthed. No one in their right mind would even consider doing such a thing with Alrik in the state he was in. Alrik turned back and pulled out his sword in one quick, angry motion. Selia clapped a hand over her own mouth to keep from screaming; she had no desire to watch Ulfrik die tonight. Apparently, Ulfrik had the same thought.

He ripped off his cloak and slung it aside, and tossed the sword over to his left hand. Alrik lunged toward Ulfrik without answering, and Ulfrik parried the blow with his shield and pushed him back. And again. They did this over and over, like a perilous dance, both sweating and grunting with exertion. There was a splintering sound as the wooden shield cracked, and a large chunk of it fell away from the metal band that encircled it. Selia could take no more. A mummer went through the men, as several quietly inquired what she had said, and someone translated, just as quietly.

A man snorted with laughter, and his whisper could just be heard above the others. A stunned silence spread over the group. The joke, meant to be heard by only one or two men, had indeed been heard by all. Alrik turned to face them and his eyes locked onto Skagi Ketilson, the man who had spoken. Alrik lunged toward Skagi with his sword still drawn. But Alrik somehow managed to pull Skagi to the ground by the legs. The men unsuccessfully tried to restrain their leader as he climbed on top of Skagi and began pummeling him with his fists, to the sickening sound of cracking bone.

Selia scrambled to her feet and cowered against a tree. But Alrik was a man possessed. He continued to hammer away at Skagi and at anyone else within distance; several of the men, including Ulfrik, had a bloody nose or a rapidly-swelling eye. The whites of his eyes were visible all around the irises, like a mad dog. He looked wild, feral… inhuman. Erin S.

The Wicked Wager ( A Regency Murder Mystery & Romance )

Penelope Leaving behind the rural charms of Finnshire, Miss Penelope Fairweather arrives in London with hope in her heart and a dream in her eye. The dowager, no less, has invited her for a season in London, where she will attempt to catch a husband. Unfortunately her ru Penelope Leaving behind the rural charms of Finnshire, Miss Penelope Fairweather arrives in London with hope in her heart and a dream in her eye.

Unfortunately her rustic finesse turns out to be as delicate as a fat bear trying to rip apart a honeycomb infested with buzzing bees. What follows is a series of misadventures, love affairs, moonlit balls, fancy clothes, fake moustaches, highwaymen, sneering beauties, pickpockets, and the wrath of a devilishly handsome duke. Richard Hamilton refuses to take things lying down and concocts a plan. A plan that should have brought the lovers together and had them married within a month. His endeavours lead to a comedy of errors, charades, and knotty love affairs.

Yet he forges ahead in spite of pesky house guests, a flea bitten mattress, his lovesick best friend, and a blackmailer. Just when things seem to be going well, someone is murdered very inconvenient , and he happens to be one of the suspects extremely inconvenient. His simple plan for winning the wager suddenly becomes … a tad complicated. A box of jewels has vanished and Lord Sedley, a lusty old aristocrat, has been stabbed six times in the chest. It is all very mysterious, and the Sedley family and the servants have decided that Miss Lucy Anne Trotter, a recently employed governess, is to blame for the unfortunate events.

The legendary and wickedly handsome Marquis, Lord William Adair, learns of the matter and decides to uncover the truth. Lucy, however, has little faith in blue blooded creatures—even if they possess dashing good looks— and, accompanied by two naughty pugs and a moody raven, decides to investigate and unmask the killer herself. But the hunt for the killer turns out to be far more complicated than she anticipates—what with snooty servants, warts in odd places, mixed up love affairs, agitated chickens and dreadful disguises ruining her plans.

Soon she begins to wonder if, for once, she is in over her head…. Get A Copy. Kindle Edition , pages. More Details Fairweather Sisters 1. Friend Reviews. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Lists with This Book.

I picked up Penelope during a promotion and the description was so intriguing that I started reading it the same day. The author has such a unique voice and I absolutely loved the ups and downs of Penelope while she's in London.

There were so many places that I was laughing out loud at the outrageous predicaments that Penelope finds herself in. Is the plot a tad ridiculous? Yes, it is, but that's what make it such a delightful read. The Regency Period was full of so many rules for young ladies a I picked up Penelope during a promotion and the description was so intriguing that I started reading it the same day. The Regency Period was full of so many rules for young ladies and society decorum was an absolute must that it was fun to see that period written about in a light-hearted way.

The book was so enjoyable I read it in one long sitting. Suspend your beliefs for a while and delve into the zany world of Penelope Fairweather. I would definitely recommend this boxed set to romance readers who are looking for a bit of fun in their stories. The twists show up unexpectedly.

It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but once in awhile a strange bit of humor is greatly appreciated. Filled with historical fiction, humor, and romance. Would recommend. The humor was hilarious! One scene made me laugh until I cried. It took quite some time to compose myself enough to continue reading the remainder of the book. Would definitely recommend if you like humorous entertainment! Author's imagination went waaaay below my tolerance level.

The attempt at quirkiness delved into the ridiculous over and over and over again. I was so tempted not to complete my reading of it. However, I trudged my way through and was left wondering why I even bothered. Would not recommend. Jun 11, Chaitali rated it it was amazing. A fantastic collection It is very rare that three books in a collection are good, but it is with this one.

The first one I had read and loved before and the last two were new reads. Each of the book are filled with lovable, little whacky characters. Except the first, the next two are cracking detective stories as well. The second book wicked wager was especially interesting to me because the plot line is somewhat same to a very hit 60s bengali movie called "Chadabeshi" The imposter remade in H A fantastic collection It is very rare that three books in a collection are good, but it is with this one.

The second book wicked wager was especially interesting to me because the plot line is somewhat same to a very hit 60s bengali movie called "Chadabeshi" The imposter remade in Hindi as Chupke chupke. So it was fun to imagine it in a different time era but the writer has so well transported it. The last book is a mixture of ghost and detective and has the whackiest characters in all but is a bit boring in parts.

And the fact it does not end up in a love story is a surprise and very practical.
