One Duke Down by Anna Bennett

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

One Duke Down is the second book in the Rogues To Lovers series by Anna Bennett.  I enjoyed the first book in this series; however, I felt there was room for growth.  I am delighted that this book was everything I wanted.  I instantly became attracted to the colorful characters and eye-catching storyline.  I felt this book developed seamlessly and shone brightly.

Poppy Summers is a fisherman’s daughter and is determined to keep her ailing father’s business afloat.  Poppy is aggravated when a strange man washes up on her beach.  Andrew Keane, the Duke of Hawking, is having a devil of a time convincing Poppy he’s a duke while also trying to discover who wants him dead.

Poppy was a fun, exciting character.  I loved her close relationship with her father.  Poppy guarded her heart, and I empathized with her regarding her experience with nobility.  I loved how Poppy could look past her previous encounters and find goodness in Andrew.

Andrew was a different kind of duke, and I enjoyed that fact.  Andrew wasn’t as stiff and stodgy as most dukes, and he had a heart of gold.  He knew he wanted Poppy’s heart early on, and I like how hard he fought for Poppy.

The couple’s romantic journey was sublime.  There were many understated, sweet moments combined with unbelievably sensual ones.  The romance had a poetic feel, the passionate connection subtle but definitely there.  I loved Andrew and Poppy together. They were perfect for each other.

The plot was unique in that the obstacles to the romance were resolved well before the story’s conclusion.  However, there was so much character growth and incredible writing that I tremendously enjoyed the book’s final quarter.  Some readers like the inner conflict to last the entirety of the book, and I respect that.  However, I felt the author used this unique twist to explore the bond between Andrew and Poppy.

The characters, storyline, and backdrop had me interested and invested throughout the book.  Anna Bennett has created a powerhouse of a second book.  Andrew and Poppy’s journey was heartwarming, passionate, and unexpected, and I love the unexpected!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through Netgalley and the publisher.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

EXCERPT

Malyshka—”

“I am not your baby girl. Why do you call me that? You have no right.”

That’s a good question and an accurate point. But who am I kidding? I’ve thought of her this way since the start. I had plenty of time to consider what it would mean to bring her into my life and what that would look like. Surviving the upbringing I had meant being able to deeply analyze a situation or facts and come to a decisive conclusion quickly. I’ve played out various scenarios already today, and I already know where I want this to go.

“Not yet, maybe.”

“Not ever.”

I take a step closer and peer down at her. She doesn’t step away, and the defiance from a moment ago slips away. I ease my arm around her waist again, and she doesn’t push at my chest or tense. I keep my voice low since I don’t want anyone to hear us.

“I’ve never called another woman that in my life. But I think you could do with someone to look out for you. And if you were with Sem for five years, then you definitely deserve someone to take care of you.”

“And you think that should be you.”

“We both know it will be.”

“Your certainty is rather pushy.”

“But you aren’t disagreeing.”

My free hand cups her cheek, and she closes her eyes.

“How are you so gentle? No one your size should be. No one who does what you do ever is.”

“Because I will never intentionally hurt you, Kitty.”

I’m the one who tenses as that slips out. Her eyes snap open as her brow furrows.

“Why’d you call me that?”

“Instead of malyshka?”

I offer her a soft smile.

“That too.”

“Would you let me kiss you before I answer that?”

“My guess is I won’t like the explanation.”

I shrug. She waits a moment, then nods. She tilts her head back before our lips meet. Holy hell. I’ve kissed plenty of women, but nothing has felt like this. Her lips are plump and soft. Her body feels amazing pressed against mine. She smells divine. Something floral. As she opens to me, I swipe my tongue inside her mouth. I can taste the gum she must have chewed earlier. There’s a hint of cinnamon lingering. She sighs as I deepen the kiss. 

When she slips her arms around my waist, I don’t stop her. I’ve never let a woman do that while I’m carrying my gun. I’ve always kept their hands away, so I don’t have to explain. But I’ve already felt her gun twice and seen it. Her hands wander over my back while mine slip to her ass. She’s wearing the sweater she had tied around her waist earlier. Her ass is soft and firm at the same time. I don’t know how, but I want to do things—dirty, dirty things—to it and with it. I squeeze, but not enough to hurt. She arches her back, so I tighten my grip. Each bit of extra pressure makes her press herself against me.

I slide one hand up her back and fist her hair. I hold her head in place and take control of the kiss. Her fingers dig into my shoulders, and she moves like she can’t get close enough.

“Is this what you like?”

My Review

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Bratva Jewel is the sixth book in The Ivankov Brotherhood series by Sabine Barclay.  Misha and Kitty’s story took me on a breathtaking roller coaster ride of intense passion, intrigue, and action!  This romance of two people finding their soulmate is full of delicious twists and turns, unpredictable mystery, and oh-so-steamy passion.  I couldn’t guess where this book would take, it kept me on the edge of my seat!

I am so sad to see the final Ivankov Brotherhood book conclude.  I have loved seeing each of these tortured, passionate men fall hard for their perfect match.  Although all these books marry romance and intrigue beautifully, this book is heavy on the steamy, emotional romance between Misha and Kitty.  However, the situation Misha and Kitty find themselves in is packed with unexpected danger and mind-bending plot twists.  I thought the plot combined the whirlwind romance, heartbreaking tragedy, and gritty, intense action excellently.

I am impressed with all the Ivankov Brotherhood books, and Bratva Jewel is an incredible way to complete a series.  Sabine Barclay can create these flawed, intense, passionate men who have been born into violence yet have kept their souls through the love of family.  I loved watching Misha meet his match in Kitty.  Bratva Jewel is everything I want in a mafia romance.  Sabine Barclay has created a powerful, sensual, emotional love story.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through BookSprout.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

My Review

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cusp Of Darkness is the first book in the Cusp series by Olivia Preya.  What a great way to start a series!  This is a nail-biting, fiery, passionate romance.  Valerius has been obsessed with Adaliya for years.  Valerius sees an opportunity to bind Adaliya to him and gain control of his birth right at the same time.  The couple must learn to compromise, trust, and eventually love.

Valerius was a great anti-hero.  Valerius was dark, dangerous, and sinfully sensual.  I loved how only with Adaliya was he captivated and caring.  Adaliya was light to Valerius’ darkness, yet she also had a darkness inside her.  The couple’s sensual connection was explosive – it ignited the page!  I loved Valerius and Adaliya’s journey.

The plot was fast-paced and captivating.  I fell in love with both Valerius and Adaliya.  I felt that the issues and difficulties Valerius and Adaliya faced were wrapped up too neatly.  However, I love the strength of the couple’s bond at the conclusion of the book.  I enjoyed every moment of this book!  Cusp Of Darkness is an excellent way to begin a new series.  I can’t wait for the next book!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through Xpresso Book Tours.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Recovery Road by Christine Feehan

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Recovery Road is the eighth book in the Torpedo Ink series by Christine Feehan.  When I open any book of Christine Feehan’s, I will get a fantastic read with quality writing and an exquisite romance.  Kir “Master” Vasiliev is the club’s “go-to guy” when they need an assassin in prison.  Kir feels disposable and that the club would go on well without him.  Ambrielle Moore is a brilliant investment banker.  When Ambrielle’s family is murdered in front of her, she vows revenge.  Kir is conveniently dropped into her path.  What starts as a transactional relationship develops into something much, much more.

Kir is a tragic character; my heart ached for him.  His soul is in tatters, and the emptiness is weighing him down.  He finds purpose in becoming Ambrie’s defender.  However, Kir begins to feel emotions he thought he was incapable of feeling for Ambrie.  Ambrie is Kir’s light in all the darkness.  Kir is sexy and dangerous, yet he finds he is so much more with Ambrie’s assistance.

Ambrie’s entire world gets turned upside down.  Ambrie is independent and resilient.  I loved how Ambrie became dependent on Kir, but it never felt like she was weak. Instead it shown a spotlight on the bond Kir and Ambrie forged.  I instantly liked Ambrie due to how she saw and treated Kir.

The couple had an off-the-charts, raw, sensual connection.  Kir and Ambrie were perfect for each other; their personalities blended seamlessly.  Their physical contact was gut-wrenching and elementally raw.  There was not much tenderness at the beginning of the relationship, but it was steamy, sexy, and unforgettable.

Recovery Road tells the story of a morally bankrupt man with nothing to lose that finds a shining light in Ambrie.  This has a fast-paced plot that combines romance and action flawlessly.  I was riveted to the page.  Christine Feehan is the queen of paranormal romance.  I devour every book she writes.  If you are a fan of Torpedo Ink, don’t miss this visceral, thrilling, sensual read!  If you are new to Christine Feehan, now is the time to meet the tattered souls of Torpedo Ink!

In Her Highlander’s Bed by Lynsay Sands

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

In Her Highlander’s Bed is the eleventh book in the Highland Brides series by Lynsay Sands.  Allissaid MacFarlane is cared for by Calan Campbell, Laird Kilcairn after being brutally beaten.  Through treachery, burgeoning feelings, and passion, the couple finds happiness even through uncertainty.

One Wedding And An Earl by Tracy Sumner

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

One Wedding And An Earl is the fourth book in The Duchess Society series by Tracy Sumner.  I have been eager for Oliver and Necessity’s story since they were introduced in The Wicked Wallflower.  Oliver began to steal my heart in that book and completely ran away with it in this book!  Necessity and Oliver are like daylight and dark.  After a meeting neither forgot, Oliver and Necessity meet again years later at Oliver’s estate.  Necessity is hired by Oliver’s brother to bring the neglected landscape back to life.

The couple’s connection from the first meeting is raw, elemental, and unstoppable.  Oliver and Necessity reminded me of magnets, pushing away and pulling together repeatedly.  The couple’s love affair is as destructive as a wildfire and as perfect as the stars Oliver loves to study.  Oliver and Necessity’s romantic journey entranced me.  Reading this was like watching a live wire, unpredictable, dangerous, and mesmerizing.

The first twenty-five percent of the book is very much a slow burn.  The character development was amazing throughout the first part.  The story picks up momentum throughout, and the storyline caught my attention and didn’t let go.  I loved the “Leighton Cluster,” the circle of friends and family supporting Oliver and Necessity.  The brotherhood and camaraderie displayed between the male members of the “circle” was so much fun to read.

I absolutely love every book in this fantastic series.  Tracy Sumner is an instant read for me!  The Duchess Society is an emotional, passionate, wild ride and One Wedding And An Earl exceeded all this reader’s expectations!  Oliver and Necessity stole a piece of my heart and didn’t let go!  I one hundred percent recommend this entire series!

Love On The Line by Anabelle Bryant

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Love On The Line is the first book in the Vauxhall Voices series by Anabelle Bryant.  Two things instantly attracted me to this book – the beautiful cover and the description.  I love when a book includes Vauxhall, and this book puts Vauxhall and its entertainers on center stage!  Lola York, a tightrope performer, meets Theodore Coventry, Earl of Essex, under tragic and mysterious circumstances.  The two are thrown together and are soon embroiled in a mystery and develop feelings for one another.

I loved Lola and Theodore!  Lola is independent, resourceful, and loyal.  Theodore is an unconventional earl; he cares nothing for society or its gossip.  It was refreshing that societal expectations didn’t deter Theodore’s feelings for Lola.  The couple together was explosive, as bright as Vauxhall’s fireworks!  I wanted this couple to succeed.  I became invested in both Lola and Theodore’s struggles and victories, and that is an attribute of excellent writing.

I loved that this book takes place at Vauxhall.  The backdrop and secondary characters greatly enhanced the story.  I did feel the ending was abrupt, and everything resolved itself too easily.  That being said, I truly enjoyed this book.   I had read Anabelle Bryant before and enjoyed her Maidens Of Mayhem series. However, this book is my favorite.  Anabelle Bryant has the beginnings of a unique, intriguing, passionate series.  I can’t wait for Sophia’s book!

Never Beguile A Bodyguard by Regina Scott

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Never Beguile A Bodyguard is the first book in the new series Fortune’s Brides:  Guarding The Heart by Regina Scott.  This is a sweet, entertaining, easy-to-read romance.  Finn Huber was a royal bodyguard that has retired and is at loose ends.  Abigail Winchester is running away from a family scandal.  Both find themselves under the care of Lady Belfort and her cat, Fortune (who stole every scene she was in!).  Lady Belfort promises to help the two find positions.  However, there might be some matchmaking involved too.

This was a cute, light, enjoyable read.  The plot was engaging, and the characters were lovable.  The romance that blooms between Finn and Abigail is heartwarming.  Regina Scott has again written a romance that entertains and intrigues.  Never Beguile A Bodyguard is a fantastic way to begin a new series!

Sutton’s Secrets by Scarlett Scott

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Sutton’s Secrets is the seventh and final book in The Sinful Suttons by Scarlett Scott.  This book has caused me to do three things I have never done.  One, I wish I had ten stars to give this book!  Two, I am at a loss for words to describe this book, so I’ll say it is unputdownable! Finally, I rarely cry in a book, usually for angsty or sad moments; I cried in this book for the poignant, breathtaking moments of sensual and emotional connection between the couple.    Logan Sutton has left his family and is now a spy for a covert agency under the crown.  Lady Arianna Stewart gets pulled into Logan’s investigation unwillingly.  The plot grabbed me on page one. 

Oh, Logan….where do I begin with you?  He is my new book boyfriend!  Logan has given up all he holds dear to do something meaningful.  Logan is selfless and intense and has a profoundly poetic soul under the gruffness and hardship of his upbringing.  I want someone to say to me the things Logan says to Arianna!  My heart melted for Logan!

Lady Arianna Stewart is both similar and different to Logan.  Arianna has suffered heartache and danger while she selflessly holds her self-absorbed family together.  Arianna’s fierce protection of her underserving family was heart-wrenching.  Arianna went above and beyond.  I loved Arianna’s iron will and determination.

This is the most romantic book in the series.  I loved the couple’s instant connection at their first meeting; they were two halves of the same whole.  What made this book shine so brightly was how romantic and emotional the sensual, steamy scenes were.  The game of telling a secret no one knows had me swooning!  Logan’s all-out protection of Ariana was as striking as his passion for her.  The couple had untold depths of physical attraction, but it was the more profound, protective yearning that was written so beautifully that catapulted this book into being romance excellence.  The quiet, in-between moments the couple shared were as captivating as their undeniable sensual connection.

I am a hardcore, avid fan of the Sutton family!  I love gaming hells, and these sibling owners are my all-time favorite – and I’ve read a lot of gaming hell owners!  This storyline was sublimely enchanting.  Its equal parts stole my breath and made me smile. The unconditional love the couple share is pure, organic, and raw.  Oh!  And the epilogue!  Perfection!  I felt I was part of the Sutton family!  Scarlett Scott has written a stunning, eye-catching conclusion to a phenomenal series, and I can’t wait for what is next!
