Rapid Romance Reads: 1/7/20

I tried to start this series last year but couldn’t keep it up because of my MS attack/diagnosis. I’m feeling quite a bit better and am better about budgeting my time, so I think I can try this again. 🙂

The goal of Rapid Romance Reads is to bring attention to new releases (90 days) that are shorter than novels. Novellas and Short Stories are worthy reads as well, and something I find myself preferring these days as I have less and less time!

Please bear in mind that I am one person and do not have infinite time on my hands. I will definitely miss releases. If you see one that you would like added, please let me know and I can get it in the next week.

Disclaimer: I have not read these books. I am simply providing links to them. I have attempted to weed out ones that looked like they were from fake authors (triple spacing or lots of free content in the back). I can’t guarantee that something I list isn’t from a fake account. I also do not know the heat content or writing skill. Please do your own due diligence before purchasing. Use the “look inside” feature and/or download a sample.

I’ve used Books 2 Read links so readers can choose their preferred vendor and country site. These are not affiliate links and I receive nothing from this post.

Addie: To Wager on Her Future (Other Pens, Mansfield Park 5) by Leenie Brown

Whoever said nothing ventured, nothing gained never had her heart on the line…

Adela Atwood grew up immersed in the world of horse breeding and racing. She comes from a family of risk-takers. Ignoring the usual rearing for a girl, her father allowed Addie to take the reins of her own destiny, and she has sat in life’s saddle ever since. Unfortunately, her brother is also a gambler and, unlike Addie, is no stranger to losing. This time, however, it is more than mere pounds at stake as Addie’s beloved horse and maybe even her brother’s life are caught up in the bargain.

Robert Eldridge was also raised surrounded by horses. In fact, he is the owner of a stable of animals which have often placed well in the races at Newcastle. When his friend nearly died the previous year, he learned that sometimes when you gamble, you lose, and some things are more precious than money.

With her father lying at death’s door and her brother facing a formidable adversary, Addie’s life is set on end. Robert, who is visiting the Atwood’s neighbors at Mansfield Park, feels compelled to offer his assistance in helping sort out the mess Addie’s brother has created.

What should have been a simple scheme to rid the Atwoods of a problem, draws Robert in and places him in a precarious position that will require them to combine their talents if they hope to have a chance at success against their foe. However, Addie knows all too well that losses are part of the gamble. Many things are irreplaceable in life, but her heart would be the most precious thing of all to lose.

Addie: To Wager on Her Future is the fifth episode in Leenie Brown’s Other Pens, Mansfield Park series of books. If you like well-written sweet Regency romance determined and brave heroines where trouble abounds, then you will enjoy this story about risking it all to claim what is truly most dear.

So, put the kettle on, grab your copy of Addie: To Wager on Her Future, and discover with Addie and Robert that some wagers are well-worth the risk.

Dear Nameless Stranger by Jeannie Peneaux

“Please admire my docile and obedient nature. I will not thank you for providing us with a home, nor will I even breathe a word of gratitude for your provision of such funds as will feed us each quarter. I will not even write such platitudes as ‘You are very good,’ given that you have also provided us with respectability in the form of Mrs. Ingles. There. I am quite done now with not expressing my gratitude – I should not at all wish to prove tiresome.”

From the author of Tact, Dear Nameless Stranger is a heartwarming tale inspired by Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and Jean Webster’s Daddy Long Legs. Tragedy has struck the Bennet sisters but they are greatly relieved when the anonymous kindness of a stranger means that they can remain together. In exchange for such charity, a monthly letter is required from each sister. It is a fortunate thing that Miss Elizabeth Bennet rather likes letter-writing, for she relishes the opportunity to relate to this unknown gentleman all her impressions and opinions regarding her changed circumstances.

With each passing month Elizabeth confides more in the nameless stranger, and by the time Netherfield Park is once again occupied by the amiable Mr. Bingley and his friend Mr. Darcy, she is quite frank in writing of her dismay.

The Best is Yet to Be by Kathryn Le Veque

The story every Le Veque reader has been waiting for…

Paris de Norville (The Wolfe) and Jemma Scott Hage (The Wolfe) find love in their sunset years… with each other?!

It seems like an impossible suggestion. Paris and Jemma first met in The Wolfe, in a fiery explosion of temper and taunting – her temper mostly because he was taunting. Handsome and arrogant in his youth, Paris was a powerful knight, second in command to the great William de Wolfe, and found great sport in taunting a Scots captive named Jemma Scott.

Pretty, green-eyed Jemma was the oil to his water. The fire to his ice. Perhaps the sparks that flew between them at first were those of attraction, but soon another knight had Jemma’s attention and Paris was relegated to a role of both friend and tormenter. He affectionately called her ‘banshee’ and what she called him is not fit for delicate ears.

It was a like/hate relationship for the ages.

The years passed and Paris married Jemma’s cousin, Caladora. They had a wonderful marriage but sickness took Caladora from him and Jemma lost her beloved husband, Kieran.

Missing Kieran, and missing Caladora, now it is Paris and Jemma again in their twilight years as the sparks that flew between them so long ago are rekindled.

Find out how sweet and romantic love the second time can be as two widowers discover that life is worth living again… with each other. Love can be passionate and powerful, no matter what the age.

“Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be…”

Mrs. Darcy’s Fine Eyes by Lory Lilian

“Mrs Darcy’s Fine Eyes” is a novella-length P&P variation. Sweet, amusing, low angst, recommended for a mature audience only.

It is a standalone story; however, being the second book in the “Hot Mush Series”, it would be better enjoyed after reading “Yearning for You”.

Blurb: Recently wedded, Elizabeth and Darcy are enjoying their blissful marriage, while slowly adjusting to their new life. Witty, lively, happy and very much in love, sheltered under her husband’s ardent love and tender protection, Mrs Darcy is claiming her position in London’s society, facing both approval and reprobation with equal strength and confidence.

For more than ten years, Lory Lilian has been called “The Queen of Hot Mush” within the JAFF community. The “Hot Mush Series” is recommended for those who enjoy a quick read and hot romance. It contains descriptive, intimate scenes, but they are not graphic or vulgar!

The third book in the series – “Mr. Darcy’s Proper Behaviour” – will be published in late January 2020.

Seeing Mary by Sarah Adams

One gaze across the ballroom changed my life forever.

Lady Mary Ashburn intends to end her Season in London the same way she has ended her past four Seasons—as a single independent woman. If it weren’t for her determination to help her friend make a match, she wouldn’t be in London at all. Spending the rest of her days as a spinster sounds vastly more enjoyable than having her heart ripped out and humiliated like it was during her first Season. Risking that fate a second time is not worth opening her heart up to anyone.

At least, that’s how she feels before the mysterious earl, Lord Robert Hatley, arrives in London and fills her life with a romance like she’s never known before. Torn between her growing feelings for Robert and her fear that his intentions might not be true, she must decide if she is willing to risk her heart again.

Her choice only gets more difficult to make when her first love reappears with a changed heart and a determination to win her trust and affection again. Finally receiving love from the man she could never quite let go of could not have come at a worse time.

Mary must choose between three different paths, each one at a cost that she fears will be too great.
