Charmed by the Wily Lass by Amy Jarecki
The MacGalloways #6

Fun way to spend a rainy day ~ Even though there is a murderer to find it was more a romance than a murder mystery.

What I liked:
* Lady Modesty MacGalloway: youngest daughter, considers herself plain and destined to be a spinster, loves horses, aspires to breed and train racehorses, secretly training to be a jockey, will never legally ride in a race, not sure why she enjoys kissing Kenneth when she doesn’t plan to marry
* Kenneth Davenport, 8th Viscount Berwick: scientist, prefers bees and sheep breeding to time with the ton, focused on finding the person that killed his brother, doesn’t feel ready to take on his lordly duties, unsure why he is attracted to Modesty when he is not ready to marry
* Freddie: orphan, taken in by Fagin-like female, eagerly accepts Kenneth’s offer to work for him
* Knowing that it was not likely a “lady” would parade in men’s clothes, learn to be a jockey, and do the things Modesty did – it was fun to watch her live out her fantasies and end up where she hoped to be
* Watching the romance and love develop between the main characters
* Lady Modesty’s mother: wily woman, loving mother, wants what is best for her children, wonder if she will find a love of her own?

What I didn’t like:
* Who and what I was meant not to like
* Thinking about how difficult it must have been to survive for many during this era and what it would take to improve one’s situation

Did I enjoy this book? Yes – not my favorite by this author but a fun book to read
Would I read more by this author? Yes

Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review.

A Princess in Plaid by Amy Jarecki
The MacGalloway’s #5

When a lady’s dreams come true then turn into a nightmare on her wedding day – what should she do? How can she save face? How will she and her family stay members of the ton? This is what Grace, once a lady now a princess, has to deal with in this story. How will her future unfold and will she get a happily ever after or not?

What I liked:
* Grace: beautiful, talented, educated, focused, somewhat self-centered, unaware of the plight of those around her, strong, resilient, grows a lot as she deals with what happens and falls for a man she never dreamed would be perfect for her
* Frasier Buchanan: clan chieftain, living in the highlands, poor, clan chased down and killed for treason, hiding for many years, strong, wise, wants the best for his clan, saves Grace and falls hard for her
* The first chapter that set the stage and presented the problem with an easy solution that was not accepted by Grace’s husband – which left Grace and others in a bit of a quandary
* The fact that Grace would do “her duty” for the sake of her family and her younger sister’s dreams for a future
* The way Grace grew as she spent time with the Buchanan clan while snowed in
* The strong family ties the MacGalloway’s have for one another
* That I felt part of the story, cared, and was hoping for a happy ending
* Knowing there is another book to look forward to

What I didn’t like:
* Who and what I was meant not to like
* The way those in charge could flog or kill anyone without going to court first
* The way society was set up so that one daughter could ruin a family just by making the wrong choice or save it with the right one

Did I like this book? Yes
Would I read more in this series? Yes

Thank you to the author, NetGalley, and Booksprout for the ARC – This is my honest review.

*2.75 stars*

This tells the story of Eleanor Kent, a very enterprising young woman / “spinster” who turned to smuggling to bolster her family’s fortunes, and Sherborn Price, the Duke of Danby who has also been tasked with unmasking said smugglers by the Prime Minister. A a chance meeting at a feast organized by the Prince and sparks fly. Sherborn is instantly intrigued by her and slightly suspicious of her activities and therefore plots to get closer to her. In the process he gets to discover that she is one of the people he pursues, things come to a head and an unusual arrangement gets made.

I enjoyed Eleanor a lot in this book. I liked her resourcefulness and warmth. I loved the addition of Maggie and adored how she cared for her dad and servants. Sher on the other hand took a while to warm up to. He came across initially as someone very judgmental and although I couldn’t quite shake off that feeling throughout the book, he had at least unbent a lot by the end.

I enjoyed the book a lot up till the pivotal moment and then I felt it got slow from there till the end. Maybe if there had been more issues with the privateering? That might have added some urgency to the plotline. Here, once they retired to the countryside, everything just slowed to a crawl including the romance.

Overall, this was an okay read. A final note is the hero’s name was shortened to “Sher” and there were many occasions I read it as “she” and that caused some very funny double takes. LOL.
Thanks to NetGalley and the Publishers for the ARC

A Duke by Scot has one of my fav tropes - the female lead disguising as a man to work with the male lead. Unfortunately this book was not one of my favorites.

Here, Julia disguises as a man to work as Martin's steward and of course :), love blooms. The issues I had with this book started from the instant love Julia had to Martin, how long the deception dragged for (honestly it was very unbelievable), but most importantly my disconnect came because I thought Julia acted too silly for words in many places. Sadly that didn't leave me truly rooting for her or her HEA.

Huge thanks to the Publisher, the author, and NetGalley for the ARC.
