Review: Curse of the Healer

Curse of the Healer Curse of the Healer by Ashley York
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

'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!

Review: When a Highlander Loses His Heart

When a Highlander Loses His Heart When a Highlander Loses His Heart by Julie Johnstone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

'When a Highlander Loses His Heart' by Julie Johnstone is book Four in the "Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts" series. I haven't yet read all the book in this series so for me this was a standalone book. This is the story of Graham and Isobel. Isobel has been in a convent since she was a baby and her father didn't plan on getting her out until she turns 18 years of age. Isobel's grandmother had left her a castle which has made her a target for clans wanting to claim all that Isobel has. If Isobel was to marry before her 18 Birthday she would have lost everything but now she has been taken out of the convent by her Step-Mother who she has just met. Isobel feels that her Step-Mother is evil and is up to no good which is quickly shown when she tries to marry her off to Jamie MacLeod. Isobel knows that MacLeod is a enemy of her father. But before any Wedding goes forward Graham comes busting through and takes her. But he is kidnapping her to take her to the King so that he may choose who her husband will be.
Isobel is a strong, Innocent, brave and all around great leading lady. Graham is emotionally wounded and slow to accept that he deserves love and happiness. Overall I really enjoyed this story and hope to read more by Ms. Johnstone!

Review: The Alpha's Secret Family

The Alpha's Secret Family The Alpha's Secret Family by Jessie Lane
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

'The Alpha's Secret Family' by Jessie Lane is book three in the "Howls Romance" series. This is the story of Stone and Dia. This is a short but sweet story of Stone who is an Alpha Wolf Shiftier who after seeing Dia knows that she is his life mate. Dia has just moved to this small town after taking over her Mentor's Beauty Shop and doesn't have time for any relationships now. But Stone isn't letting up and it doesn't take long for him to win out. My biggest wish was that the book was loner than the almost 140 pages. I haven't yet read the other books so this was a standalone book for me.
I am glad to find this author as this was the first book I have read by Ms. Lane. I hope to read more from her in the future.

When the Marquess Falls When the Marquess Falls by Lorraine Heath
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars
"When The Marquess Falls' by Lorraine Heath is book 3.5 in the "The Hellions of Havisham" series. This is a novella covering how George who is the Marquess of Marsden and was the 'Mad' guardian who took care of the kids that became men in the "Hellions of Havisham' series.

Through out the series you understood that George was taken care of his son and the boys that were left to him in a guardianship but at the same time was missing his wife that had past.
This book was a sad story but yet a happy one that I am glad I went forward and read.

Review: It Started with a Kiss

It Started with a Kiss It Started with a Kiss by Ella Quinn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

'It Started with a Kiss' by Ella Quinn is book Three in the "The Worthingtons" series. This is the story of Louisa and Gideon. I have read and enjoyed the previous books but if you choose this can be a standalone book. Louisa is the sister to Matt who was the main male character in book One "Three Weeks to Wed". So it was nice catching up with them in this book.
Louisa knows Gideon is the one for her almost from the start when she passed him by when she was out riding in the early mornings. Louisa runs into Gideon again at her family home when she finds out that he is her brother's friend.
Gideon is taken with Louisa from the start too but knows that nothing can come of it because his inherited Estes are left penniless after his father was pretty much taken advantage up by a women.
Gideon cousin who he is close to informs him that he wants Louisa for his own and just wants his help in the matter. Gideon at first thinks this is a good ideal but it gets harder to stick with helping him. Louisa has already started looking for someone else for the cousin so she isn't having any of that and wants Gideon only.
This was another great read by Ms. Quinn! Ms. Quinn is one of my favorite authors so this was a dream to read! "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Review: Knight Secrets

Knight Secrets Knight Secrets by C.C. Wiley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

'Knight Secrets' by C.C. Wiley is book Two in the "Knights of the Swan" series. This is the story of Clarice and Ranulf. Ranulf is a knight that leads the men to search for Lord Musgraves who is Clarice's father. Ranulf is investigating him for possible Treason. Clarice has always been hidden away so the servants talk her into hiding while they are searching the home/castle looking for Lord Musgraves and family (who are actually away on a trip). When it is safe to leave the castle Clarice goes in search for someone to help them. Clarice doesn't get far before she is taken in by Ranulf but she still hides who she is. I didn't understand anywhere in the book why Clarice was kept hidden but other than that I found this to be an enjoyable read.
This was a clean romance so not graphic love scene but it does have some build up.
