The Errant Earl by Amanda McCabe

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I think everyone has a weakness for a certain genre of book for me I can't pass up a good fluff. With Amanda McCabe's Errant Earl was a light delightful romp.

When Marcus Hadley finds out his father married a second time for love to a actress; he can't believe his father would marry so below his own station. Years later and to late, Marcus thought he had time to mend the fences with his father who died along with second wife. Now an earl he feels a greater responsibility to the title and his stepsister who triggers something in his heart.

Julia remembers the terrible argument between the old earl and Marcus and now with her mother and the old earl dead. She knows it's only a matter of time before Marcus comes to take over his earl seat. But her actor friends are staying there till their next trip. In order to keep her friends close by with a roof over their head, she comes up with a plan to make them take over…

White Roses and Starlight by Rhonda Woodward

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


It's wonderful to see Rhonda Woodward writing again and she brings back her simple and light romantic style with White Roses and Starlight.

Miss Marina Buckleigh is the eldest daughter of a baron and for being only nineteen has a nice head on her shoulders and takes everything in strive until she meets with a blond Adonis who takes her only a moonlight waltz . But everything stops when she runs face to face with Lord Fitzhugh Marquis of Cortland.

It's been a awhile since I read where there's strong infatuation on the heroine's part. While that story wasn't done very well, but I don't have to say that about this book. Marina acts like a teen who has her first crush, thankfully doesn't act stupid or gets all hot and bother on the whim. Her infatuation quickly starts to die as a mature emotions start to emerge. All of us remember being a teen could understand Marina as she got carried away…

As a storm covered the land with it's darkness, the thunder rolled shaking the land as a young reviewer raced toward the library, her sanctuary, her flowing grown trailing behind her. She quickly raced inside the literary cavern, touching her hand to her brow she wonder if she stuck enough of a dramatic pose

So it wasn't a stormy day but bright and sunny and nay a cloud in the sky (although the sound of a huge library does sound bad-ass) I couldn't help but feel Ann Lethbridge transported the reader into an old Gothic novel with two leading characters that don't know if either can trust the other or want the other dead. Then a ghostly mystery that only adds to this great novel.

Mary and Bane are both outsiders. With Mary never knowing her family but raised an orphan only knowing that someone has been supporting her all through her years in school. When she is brought to Abbey she thinks she wi…
