A Night to Surrender (Spindle Cove, #1)A Night to Surrender by Tessa Dare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Miss Finch is the ultimate heroine in the Regency era. She has found a new way for Spindle Cove aka Spinsters’ Cove to survive the economy brought on by England’s war.
She caters to the women in the ton who are overlooked. Or, misdiagnosed for ailments and issues that too often subject them to poor medical treatment.
Fresh air, exercise and tea are in order.
Yet, Bram (Lt. Colonel Bramwell) interrupts her life and true battle ensues. Who will win the town? Will there be a need for militia in their fishing village? What about the cosmic attraction these two characters feel for each other. Will it be Miss Finch’s ruin to let down her guard and let love in. Great setting and fabulous characters. Love the female geologist character who gets her own story in “A Week to be Wicked.”

Devil's Bride (Cynster, #1)Devil’s Bride by Stephanie Laurens

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Amazing book of the battle between English propriety and true emotion between two main characters: Devil Cynster and Honoria Wetherby.
He proclaims her as his bride from the first chapter!
What happens next is the wearing down of Honoria’s fears and independence to choose and accept love.
Make no mistake, Devil Cynster is a man to be feared by most but Honoria impresses upon him in her first meeting. He takes advantage of her hesitation to proclaim her as his Duchess to the world and his family. Despite her stubbornness as a Wetherby she sees this man for who he is as she has no need for his wealth or his title.
Together, they solve a family mystery and survive the challenges around it all.
Great read!
