Reader Reviews


This is another well crafted story that keeps the reader’s interest for the entire story. I especially enjoyed Honoria’s fortitude in facing her future.



The Taming of the Grump

...A fun cheering story of two mature people who have lived until now without any romantic entanglement why they are lost of how to address these new feelings.

Love that was destined

This is a marvelous series not to be missed! Miss Honoria Fairfax (she appears in a few of the books in this series) is a 31 year old spinster who decided long ago not to be dominated by a husband - her parents terrible marriage played a big role in that decision. Tormund Stone, the Earl of Rockford, is forced to retire as a spy when his cover is blown during a mission...For two people determined to be alone, they are falling in love. Fate brought them together twice - only their hearts can choose love over safety. It is a sad and tender story of duty and fear and of joy and love that can overcome adversity and make life worthwhile. Another enchanting and heart touching story !!
