The Seventh Season
Lady Miranda Blake is in her seventh Season. Oh, it's not for lack of proposals the previous six, not at all. Miranda has one man in mind to marry. She just needs him to come up to scratch and do it.
American Derek Lang isn't very fond of England or all their rules. He has two reasons to be here though; business and clearing his grandfather's name. Why not enjoy himself while he's at it? And he's found the perfect lady to make England more bearable.
I really enjoyed this book. It pulled me in from the beginning and kept a good flow until the end. There is some suspense in the book that gives it some twists and turns. This is a standalone book.

Peyton and the Paragon
Peyton Worthing, Lord Ives, is a rake and quite content being one. His mother, on the other hand, thinks he needs a wife. Being the only son and heir to the earldom, his mother has a house party each summer to bring possible wife choices to him. So far, she hasn't presented a lady that could tempt him away from his way of life.
Isabel Bentham is an heiress. She is also an orphan. Her cousin Rose, whom she has lived with since the death of her parents, is like a sister. Still, she misses Cornwall and the sea. London stifles her. The invitation to the house party in the country, and near a sea, is more exciting to her than the sought after bachelor.
The secondary characters add their point of views to the story as well. Rose, who unlike her cousin, has not known the aristocrat life and wouldn't have if not for Isabel. Clay, Peyton's best friend, has been wounded in war and is recovering. He also joins the house party. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to more from this author.
Blue Crystal Time Travel Series
Book 1: Earth Shattering
Victoria “Tori” Foster is having a bad day. A very bad day that turns into two bad days. After she's almost run off the road...she lands in the river. When she's rescued...things are not the same. Not at all.
Sebastien La Roche makes his living on the river. When they find a body...that is actually a still alive woman...his life changes. Oh, he tries to leave her behind in the town where she'd been found nearby, but he gives in and takes her on the Fury with him. She's different from anyone he's ever met.
The author did a great job of showing the differences in the time era. Of what it would be like for one of us...with our electricity, cellphones, and all the modern conveniences...to suddenly not have any of that. A torch or candle is needed for light, no light switch. No fast food restaurants. No modern conveniences. Looking forward to the next book in this series; Time Rebound.
Book 2: Time Rebound
