The Highlanders

The Highlanders: A Smitten Historical Romance CollectionThe Highlanders: A Smitten Historical Romance Collection by J’nell Ciesielski
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you enjoy stories with a Scottish tang, then these four novellas are your next “must read.” Two are set in the old country, and two on America’s shores, but all of them include a Highlander you’ll be swept away by. And the final story will throw you a curve you never see coming! If you dinna get your copy yet, you shouldna wait much longer!

Misleading Miss Verity

Misleading Miss Verity (Regency Brides: Daughters of Aynsley #3)Misleading Miss Verity by Carolyn Miller
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I enjoyed a lot about this book. The characters are interesting and believable, the setting is beautifully written, and the writing is good. The ending, however, fell apart for me. That could very well be just a personal preference, so I’m still giving it a solid three stars, because others may love the ending.

Lady in the Mist

Lady in the Mist (The Midwives, #1)Lady in the Mist by Laurie Alice Eakes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book has moldered in my Kindle for years – literally – and I finally opened it. So glad I did! I enjoy stories about midwives, and this one didn’t disappoint. Set shortly after the Revolutionary War, it’s full of angst and distrust between the Americans and the British with the British Navy stealing American men and pressing them into service to the Crown. Good story!

Legacy Restored

Legacy Restored (The Legacy Series, #2)Legacy Restored by Robin Patchen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Classic Robin Patchen! Plenty of unexpected things happen when an ex-con and an artist team up – accidentally – to bring down a murderer. Loved the characters in this one. He’s broody and temperamental, the quintessential artist. She’s independent and insecure, an interesting combination. Together, they’ll keep you turning the pages.

The Wood’s Edge

The Wood's Edge (The Pathfinders, #1)The Wood’s Edge by Lori Benton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t know why it took me so long to read a book by Lori Benton. But I’m glad I finally did! This story is a rich tapestry of the era peopled with characters who will draw you into their world. Benton does a very credible job – and it’s a difficult one – of balancing the relationship between white settlers and natives. Too many authors want to make the former all evil and the latter all saints. Benton didn’t do that. Her characters are all true-to-life with warts and all. That’s what makes it easy to slip into sync with them as you read. I highly recommend this on to all readers who enjoy historical romance at its best.

The Witness Tree

The Witness TreeThe Witness Tree by Denise Weimer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A fascinating and engaging story about a historic time and place that isn’t often showcased in fiction. I was captivated by the characters from the very start. The lifestyle of the Moravians is something I knew just a little about. Their interaction with the natives – both positive and negative – kept me reading until late into the night. And – of course – the romance didn’t hurt either!

The Cowboys

The CowboysThe Cowboys by Jennifer Uhlarik
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What’s better than a book with a handsome cowboy for the hero? A collection of four stories with four handsome cowboy heroes! These stories will tug at your heart and give you a chuckle before leaving you with that satisfied *awww…* ending. Most importantly … did I mention the handsome cowboy heroes?! Written by four of my favorite authors is a nice plus as well.
