Desperate Hearts Rosanne Bittner Historical Romance Heat Rating: 3

SHE’S A WOMAN WITH A SECRET Elizabeth Wainwright is on the run. Accused of a murder she didn’t commit, she has no choice but to cut ties with her old life and flee West. The last thing she wants is attention, but when her stagecoach is attacked, she suddenly finds herself under the fierce protection of one of Montana’s famed vigilantes… whether she likes it or not. HE’S A MAN WITH A CODE Lawman Mitch Brady is sworn to uphold justice in the wild lands of 1860’s Montana. He’s never met a man he’s feared, and he’s never met a woman more desperately in need of his help. Something’s shaken the secretive Elizabeth, but as he gets to know the beautiful city belle, he finds the only thing he wants more than her safety…is her trust. Review: Rosanne Bittner has always been a favorite of mine when it comes to western romance and she did not fail me this time. Desperate Hearts is full of excitement, secrets and of course romance. The characters Elizabeth and Mitch hit it off right from the beginning but her secrets could ruin them, which makes it hard for her to trust anyone with the truth. If you are a fan of historical romances and top it off with it being a western, then this is a book for you. You will find yourself drawn back in time into the small mining town and into the lives of all of those that live there. Looking for an easy going and relaxing love story without going overboard then this is the book for you. | Reviewer: Annette Stone |

My Highland Spy Victoria Roberts Historical Romance Heat Rating: 4

Love in the Highlands has never been this steamy! This Highland Laird won’t bow to the Crown… Laird Ruairi Sutherland refuses to send his only son away to be educated by the English. And he most definitely will not appear in Edinburgh to pay homage to a liege who has no respect for Scotland. So he does what any laird would do—he lies to the king. The last thing Ruairi expects is a beautiful English governess to appear on his doorstep. But this lady spy might make him... Lady Ravenna Walsingham is a seasoned spy who is sent to the savage Highlands to uncover a nefarious plot against the Crown. Playing the part of an English governess—a job easier said than done—she infiltrates the home of Laird Sutherland, a suspected conspirator. If she doesn’t betray him first… Ravenna soon discovers that the only real threat Sutherland poses is to her heart. But will the proud Highland laird ever forgive her when he discovers the woman he loves in an English spy? Review: Ravenna worked as a spy for His majesty King James, just like her father before her. Her father had taught her everything she knew, so that one day she could take his place, which in itself was an unusual undertaking for a woman at that time. It was fast paced, humorous with extremely likeable characters. Ravenna was a strong independent-minded woman who suddenly found herself in the unusual position of becoming a nanny by infiltrating the Laird home in the guise of caring for his son. She definitely wasn’t happy about that. But she did what she had to do. Ravenna Walsingham and Laird Ruairi Sutherland made an interesting couple despite their differences and his secrets. It was also a fun story with extremely likeable characters; from Ravenna sisters to members of Ruairi own clan. So if you like highlanders, and a really good sense of humor, you’ll enjoy this one immensely. | Reviewer: Cassandra Graham |
