One Scandalous Kiss
Christy Carlyle

Accidental Heirs #1

When a scheming marquess’ daughter offers her one hundred pounds to publicly kiss a nobleman, a desperate Jessamin Wright agrees. She believes the money will save her failing bookstore and finally free her from her father’s debts. But when Jess bursts into an aristocratic party and shocks the entire ton, she never expects to enjoy the outrageous embrace she shares with a grim viscount.

Lucius Crawford, Viscount Grimsby, has never met, or kissed, anyone like the beautiful suffragette who unsettles him with a single touch. He has always strived for control and avoided passion at all costs. Lucius is determined to protect his title and restore the estate he’s unexpectedly inherited, but Jess’ appearance in his life poses a threat to his plans and his heart. After a country house party brings them together once more, neither can resist temptation, and both find that one scandalous kiss just isn’t enough.

Because of a kiss started for the wrongest of motives, Jess and Lucius find a true and profound love. (I cannot say I wouldn’t want a Lucius for myself…I do love the brooding types that smile only for me. 😉 )

This book is one of those you need to savor. It is slow paced and full of feelings. It’s also set in a period of which authors don’t write enough. Jessamin, in fact, is a suffragette who writes speeches for meetings and, at the same times, tries to make ends meet with a bookshop that her father has left heavily indebted because of his gambling addiction. When a Lady offers a hundred pounds for a stolen kiss to a Lord Grim(sby) because she feels rejected by him (in a childish and seflish way if you ask me) Jess, desperate to save the shop, rashly accepts… and in so doing starts a series of events to which no one would have thought.
I really enjoyed Christy Carlyle’s style of writing. I found it perfect for the time she is speaking about, “fluent” and rich. I liked all her characters too, the likeable ones and the ones not so much (I couldn’t stand his sister and I would have slapped her a time or two…or three XD). Even if the story is not perfect, many can say it is too slow, for me it was a very good “first read” from this new author. The perfect book to read when you want something that can soothe your mind and engage your feelings.

He charged out of the darkness to her rescue . . .
Amelia Grant has just escaped her lecherous employer with nothing but the clothes on her back. In the predawn hours of London, a horse and carriage come barreling down on her, and a stranger rushes to her aid, sweeping her off her feet . . .
There is something dark and dangerous about Nicholas Riley. With eyes gray like flint and hard as steel, he’s unusual … beautiful. The intensity behind his gaze makes her feel like the only person in the world. And then he whispers . . .
“I want your complete surrender.”

When I decided to read Desire Me Now I was expecting something more…errr…different (ok, kinky). Something that would go beyond the boundaries of the classic historical romance book. The cover made me think it would be more daring, an erotic romance with, maybe, some BDSM in the mix. Instead I found a classic historical romance set in 1881. I’m not saying that it’s boring or bad written or insipid. Desire Me Now is a well written, interesting and probably more sexy than the average story but there isn’t really much difference from other books of the same genre. That said, in the whole I really enjoied the book.
Speaking of the MCs. I liked Nick, he is a very good male character for a romance book. He is sexy and with that bit of dark past and rough appearance that makes your heart bit faster. However, sometimes I felt like he went from rascal to committed too fast. Amelia too is a good character, she was more in line with her behavior but for me she too surrendered to his seduction without putting up much of a fight (ok, I wouldn’t make him work too much for it too…he could well be everyones dream man, you know). Anyway.
The book ends with a bit of a cliffhanger because Amelia and Nick story is far from closed. Many things are still open and if you don’t like to read a book without a proper ending maybe it is better if you wait november when the third and (I hope…because I want to know how it ends not because it’s not good) last part of this series will be out.

C.L. WILSON: The Winter King – Weathermages of Mystral #1

Un romanzo che ho appena finito di leggere è questo fantasy-romantico-storico di C.L. Wilson che vado a presentarvi.
Ve ne parlo perchè è quel genere di romanzo che ogni tanto mi piace leggere, che mi ricorda le fiabe dell’infanzia con cavalieri, magia e un lieto fine. Quel genere di romanzo che alleggerisce il cuore e fa star bene. Che ti permette di prenderti una pausa da tutto.
Si tratta del primo di una serie, ma come spesso succede nei romance storici è in sè autoconclusivo perchè ogni romanzo avrà come protagonista una coppia diversa, anche se collegata da legami familiari o di amicizia.

The Winter King
C.L. Wilson

Weathermages of Mystral #1

Wynter Atrialan, the Winter King, once lived in peace with his southern, Summerlander neighbors, but when the prince of Summerlea steals Wynter’s bride and murders his young brother, Wynter calls upon a dangerous Wintercraig magic called the Ice Heart and marches against Summerlea.

After three bitter years of battle, a victorious Wynter arrives at Summerlea’s royal palace to issue his terms of surrender. The prince of Summerlea stole Wynter’s bride and slew Wynter’s Heir. He wants the loss replaced. The Ice Heart is consuming him. Wynter hopes holding his own child in his arms will rekindle the warmth in his heart before he becomes the monster of Wintercraig legend, the Ice King.

The Summer King has three very precious daughters whom he loves dearly. Wynter will take one of them to wife. She will have one year to provide him with an Heir. If she fails, he will send her to face the mercy of the mountains and claim another princess for his wife. And so it will continue until Wynter has his Heir or the Summer King is out of daughters.

The plan is perfect—except for one small detail. The Summer King has a fourth daughter. One of whom he is not so fond. And she is a fiercely passionate creature, with a temper as volatile as the forces of her weathergift, the power of storms.

Wynter Atrialan, Re d’Inverno, un tempo viveva in pace con i vicini, gli abitanti della Terra d’Estate.
Ma quando il Principe della Terra d’Estate durante una visita diplomatica fugge con la sua futura sposa e ne uccide il giovane fratello, Wynter abbraccia una pericolosa magia chiamata il Cuore di Ghiaccio e marcia in guerra contro la Terra d’Estate.
Dopo tre amari anni di battaglia, un Wynter vittorioso arriva al palazzo reale d’Estate per rilasciare i termini della resa. Il principe d’Estate gli ha rubato la sposa e ha assassinato il suo erede. Ora Winter vuole che la sua perdita venga sostituita da qualcosa di eguale valore.
Ma il Cuore di Ghiaccio lo sta consumando. Wynter spera che tenere un proprio bambino fra le braccia possa riaccendere quel calore nel cuore la cui lenta perdita lo stà trasformando nel leggendario mostro di Wintercraig, il Re di Ghiaccio.
Il Re dell’Estate ha tre figlie molto preziose che egli ama teneramente. Wynter ne prenderà una in moglie ed ella avrà un anno per dargli un erede. Se non dovesse riusirci, egli la manderà ad affrontare la misericordia delle montagne e rivendicherà un’altra principessa come sua moglie. E così continuerà finché Wynter avrà l’erede desiderato o il Re dell’Estate non avrà più figlie da dargli in moglie.
Il piano è perfetto, tranne per un piccolo dettaglio. Il Re d’Estate ha una quarta figlia. Una di cui egli non è così affezionato. Una creatura ferocemente appassionata, con un temperamento volatile come le forze del suo Dono, la potenza delle tempeste.
