Hey Y’all!  Been busy reading & reviewing but also contacting authors to visit the Book Nook.  Here’re the confirmed guests and there are others I’m waiting to hear back from so this list will grow.

highland solutionCeci Giltenan is celebrating her debut HIGHLAND SOLUTION.   The blurb is from Ceci’s website.

Laird Niall MacIan needs Lady Katherine Ruthven’s dowry to relieve his clan’s  crushing debt but he has no intention of giving her his heart in the bargain.  

Niall MacIan, a Highland laird, desperately needs funds to save his impoverished clan. Lady  Katherine Ruthven, a lowland heiress, is rumored to be “unmarriageable” and her uncle hopes to be  granted her title and lands when the king sends her to a convent. King David II anxious to strengthen  his alliances sees a solution that will give Ruthven the title he wants, and MacIan the money he needs.  Laird MacIan will receive Lady Katherine’s hand along with her substantial dowry and her uncle will    receive her lands and title.
Lady Katherine must forfeit everything in exchange for a husband who does not want to be married   and believes all women to be self-centered and deceitful. Can the lovely and gentle Katherine mend his heart and build a life with him or will he allow the treachery of others to destroy them?

Can honour and action banish the shadows of old sins?
Emily Micklen has no option after the death of her loving fiancé, Jack, but to marry the scarred, taciturn, soldier who represents her only escape from destitution.

Major Angus McCartney is tormented by the reproachful slate-grey eyes of two strikingly similar women: Jessamine, his dead mistress, and Emily, the unobtainable beauty who is now his reluctant bride.

Emily’s loyalty to Jack’s memory is matched only by Angus’s determination to atone for the past and win his wife with honour and action.  As Napoleon cuts a swathe across Europe, Angus is sent to France on a mission of national security, forcing Emily to confront both her allegiance to Jack and her traitorous half-French family.

Angus and Emily may find love, but will the secrets they uncover divide them forever?

Katy Madison who writes Gothic romances, how long’s it been since you read a good gothic?  Western romances and romantic suspense. Her latest is AWAKENING HIS DUCHESS…Blurb and pic from Amazon.

Lord Beaumont Havendish has been thought dead for nine long years. However, death would be a relief from his grinding existence as a white slave in the tropical island of Saint-Domingue. At long last revolution gives him a chance to escape, but he’ll never escape the knowledge that the woman he loved sent him into a living hell. He leaves the tropical sands behind and returns to the gentle shores of England thinking the nightmare is finally behind him to find it has only just begun. The traitorous Yvette is comfortably ensconced in Beau’s ancestral home, posing as his bereaved widow. Yet, nothing is what it seems. Yvette is no longer the girl he once adored. She seems more like a ghost than the wicked temptress he believes betrayed him. Can he forgive the past and dare he risk AWAKENING HIS DUCHESS?

On a whim, straight-laced Judith Beaufort goes out for a ride one fine day and is abducted, in a case of mistaken identity, by a band of thespians headed by the rogue Charles Lambert. This small incident will have consequences far beyond Judith’s imagining, and she is quickly drawn into dangerous political intrigue and an unexpected relationship with the charming and disreputable Charles.

All she had to do was say no…

When Ashern Ridley returns to the family homestead after his father’s death, he learns that Ridley Ranch is in deep, financial trouble. In order to save his legacy, he must ask for help from the most unlikely source—Madison Maddox. She agrees to put up the money and soon locks horns with not only Ashern, but Amber Symthe, the ranch’s new maid, who wants the Ridley heir for her own.

Madison remembers Ashern as a spoiled, mischievous child, and quickly discovers that little has changed about him. Now that he’s all grown up and far too handsome than he has a right to be, she realizes too late that perhaps she’s bitten off more than she can handle.
