His Captive Princess by Sandra Jones; Review + Giveaway



His Captive Princess
Author: Sandra Jones
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Release Date: 28 April 2015

Earned respect is sweet…but deserved revenge is sweeter.


Warren de Tracy was assured the Welsh village of Dinefwr would be an easy conquest, as would the widow of its fallen prince. Wedding her will appease the locals and win the respect of his liege, the usurper King Stephen.

Instead, Warren is ambushed, taken prisoner by a hooded Welshwoman with skin that glows like moonlight. If he must die at her hands, at least his honorable death will silence the whispers of disloyalty hanging over his name.

Princess Eleri has never seen a knight as stoic—and as eager to die—as Warren. She’d love to oblige the bastard, but something in his ocean-blue eyes stays her hand. Plus, suspicion nags at her, for the arrows that wounded him and killed his men are Norman, not Welsh.

A ghostly prophecy portends danger that thrusts the enemies closer together, where hate explodes into passion that won’t allow Eleri to surrender Warren to her vengeful clan. But returning him to his king breaks more than it mends…and for Warren, retaliation will be sweet, indeed.

Product Warnings:
Contains a Norman warrior with a thirst for justice, a Welsh rebel princess with second sight and a steady bow hand, magical prophecies, and a plot of royal proportions.

Blog Tour: The Devilish Mr. Danvers by Vivienne Lorret; Excerpt + Giveaway




The Devilish Mr. Danvers (The Rake sof Fallow Hall #2)
Author: Vivienne Lorret
Publisher: Avon Impulse
Release Date: 21 April 2015

For the first time in her life, Hedley Sinclair holds the keys to her own future. She’s inherited the crumbling Greyson Park, but the disrepair does nothing to dissuade her. No one will ever lock her up again or attempt to take away what’s hers. No one except Rafe Danvers—the charming, fiendish man from Fallow Hall. He’s determined to claim Greyson Park, but if Hedley isn’t careful, he’ll claim her heart as well.

Rafe has every intention of ridding Greyson Park of the conniving Sinclairs, once and for all. The last thing he expects is to find the beguiling Hedley Sinclair—the younger sister of his former fiancĂ©e—standing in his way. With drastic measures called for, he plans to marry her off in order to regain control of the estate. The only trouble is, he can’t seem to stop seducing her. Even worse, he can’t help falling in love with her.

Excerpt

Gritting his teeth, Rafe strode out of the solicitor’s office in Cheapside. Black clouds filled with soot and rain rumbled overhead. A fierce storm brewed. Both outside and within him. 
“I refuse to believe it!” He’d thought coming to London would bring him better news. 
Beside him, his long-time friend, Ethan Weatherstone secured his brown tophat against a gust of wind. “I’m afraid it’s true. Miss Hedley Sinclair inherited Greyson Park.” 
“And the contract I signed along with Lady Claudia Sinclair—as it was overseen by a steward in her own employ—is essentially worthless.” 
Weatherstone shook his head in sympathy. “I’m sorry, my friend.” That witch had stolen two thousand pounds from him! Not only that, but she’d demanded eight thousand more by year’s end before he could occupy the house. The worst part—he’d been willing to do it! Disgusted and angry, Rafe climbed into the carriage and tapped against the roof for the driver. 
“Hawthorne Manor,” he instructed, but quickly changed his mind. “Better make that Danbury Lane, instead.”
