Curse of the Healer

Review:

Curse of the Healer - Ashley York

‘Curse of the Healer’ by Ashley York is Book One in the “Descendants of the High King” series. This is the story of Aednat and Diarmuid. I cannot get enough of Ms. Yorks’s books…she is one of my favorite authors. This book just added to my love of her writing.
Aednat has appeared in Ms. York’s series: The Norman Conquest in the book “The Seventh Son ” which was book Four. In addition, Sean is Aednat’s cousin who took her in. We met Sean in the book titled “The Irish Warrior” in the same series: The Norman Conquest. But you don’t have to have read that book to enjoy this one. But I will say that series was great so you might not want to miss out.
Aednat was a strong, loving, and she was also disabled somewhat with a club foot. Although it did not slow her down it did give her a limp and she was shunned by her family but a cousin named Sean, did take her in where she was given love and learned to be a healer. Sean now fears that Aednat life may be in danger and has asked his friend Diarmuid to come and help with her protection. Diarmuid tries to keep himself emotionally distant from her but its a battle he is not winning. Diarmuid did not really notice her disability and just saw Aednat as what she is…a loving, smart women.
This book you just couldn’t put down…loved it! I can’t wait for more books in this series!

The Duke of Desire

Review:

The Duke of Desire - Darcy Burke

‘The Duke of Desire’ by Darcy Burke is book Four in the “The Untouchables” series. This is the story of Ivy Breckenridge and Sebastian Westgate, Duke of Clare. I have read the other books in this series but feel this is easily a standalone book.
Ivy has settled into be a companion while her close friends have married and started a family. Ivy has issue with men and at first it would seem hard to get past. West has a reputation of ‘helping’ married women by sleeping with them. So at first he doesn’t come off as a hero you would want but that doesn’t take long to change. I ended up seeing how well these two were made for each other. It was great seeing how much Ivy started to change with West and how her outlook became more hopeful. West to needed someone like Ivy who brought out another side to him.
I have fallen in love with this series and Ms. Burke writing so this was a joy to read!

His Alone

Review:

His Alone - Alexa Riley

‘His Alone’ by Alexa Riley is book Two in the “For Her” series. This is the story of Paige and Ryan aka..Captain.
I have not yet read the previous book “Everything for Her” so for me this was a standalone book. With that being said, I will say I wish I had read the previous book first. It seems that is when Paige and Ryan met. In addition, there seem to be some history Paige had with her best friend Mallory and her half brother Miles (who are the main characters in the first book). It didn’t slow me down enjoying the book but my OCD in me wanted their whole story.
Paige has been working for Miles but has also had a secret crush on him. But Paige is building the strength to get revenge on her father. The father that killed her mother in front of her…but she nevertheless gets scared of him when she is confronted with him again. Her father really is a bad man who only wants to do harm. Ryan has been protecting her and keeping an eye on her. Ryan is an Alpha male who knows he wants Paige since the first time he saw her when her father showed him a picture. Her father actually wanted him to do harm to her but Ryan had no plans to do so. Ryan plan after seeing that picture of her was to protect her and make her his. I loved watching Paige grown in strength and in love with Ryan .
This is the first book I have read by Ms. Riley and I must say I have fallen in love with her writing. I love a hot alpha male with a strong women and this book was just that!

A Perfect Gentleman

Review:

A Perfect Gentleman: A Novel - Candace Camp

‘ A Perfect Gentleman’ by Candace Camp is the story of Graeme and Abby.  
Ms. Camp is one of my favorite authors so as soon as I saw her name with this book I had to have it.
So happy to say that this book did not disappoint!  I could not put the book down so I ended up reading it until the early hours of the morning….still worth the book-hangover!
Graeme and Abby story actually started about 10 years ago when they were married.  Graeme was pretty much blackmailed in to marring Abby by her father.  Abby knew her father was very controlling and a harsh business man but did not have a clue what her father was doing to Graeme.  So right after the wedding Graeme made it clear that he did not want her nor is she every to hold his heart.  That he is in love with someone else. Graeme also told her some of what her father had done.  Graeme then walked out.  Well Abby being a young 18 year old was heart broken and she up and left London.  Abby headed back to NY to make a life for herself.  Now 10 years later she is back in London and Graeme isn’t happy about it.  He at first tries to talk her into leaving and going back but it does not work.  Abby has chanced a lot in physical and internal appears which has made it hard for Graeme to resist her. But when Abby starts to get notes telling her there is more going on to her marriage 10 years ago than she knows so goes forward to find out…which puts her in danger. Can Graeme get past his feeling he thought he had for Abby and move forward with the new feelings that are coming out?  Can he help keep Abby safe when someone is out to hurt her?
This was another great story by Ms. Camp!

The Highland Duke

Review:

The Highland Duke (Lords of the Highlands) - Amy Jarecki

‘The Highland Duke’ by Amy Jarecki is book One in the “Lords of the Highlands” series. This is this the story of Akira and Gordon ‘Geordie’. Geordie is a Duke who is in danger and has been shot. When Akira finds him he talks her into helping him and then offers to pay her if she can get him a horse. Geordie needs to get away as fast as he can. Akira is a gypsy healer of sorts who finds Geordie and tries to help him. When they are discovered by Redcoats they take off together. Geordie knows that Akira saved his life and he needs to keep her safe. Akira is just a commoner along with her family. Their family is nothing in the eyes of her village, but she tries her best to help them and others. Geordie being a Duke knows that anything that comes of Akira and his attraction couldn’t lead to marriage due to her being a commoner. But with lines like this:
(Akira)
‘Stop’ she said with a gasp, her fists showing up between them. ‘Why is it I have so much difficulty resisting you?’
(Geordie) ‘Believe me, lass I am the one who has been rendered utterly powerless’

Akira was a strong women who knew her place, had pride and held her virtue as her only great possession. Geordie had allot to over come from his past but he was a strong hero.
I truly enjoyed watching these two grow and overcome so much. I even loved the secondary characters so much that I hope to see more of them!
