AN RT BOOK REVIEWS TOP PICK!
An inconvenient engagement turns a marriage of convenience into so much more in this sparkling new series from award-winning author Sara Portman . . .
Lady Emmaline Shaw’s reputation was irreparably damaged when her fiancé, John Brantwood, disappeared immediately after their engagement four years ago. Since then, she’s grown from a shy, uncertain girl to a woman who knows her own mind. And what she knows is that London society holds nothing for her.
Rumor has it that John ran off to war and died in battle. Now, as the new Duke of Worley, his shocking resurrection throws the ton into a tizzy and makes him one of England’s most sought after bachelors—except that he’s already engaged.
John needs a wife capable of smoothing his beloved sister’s introduction into society. But though Emma
happily grants him his freedom, her fiery beauty and resilient spirit hold him captive. In fact, John has no intention of letting her go. Her fate is now in his hands, but will her heart be safe there as well?

This library, located an easy 30 minutes from my home west of Toledo, is a treasure trove for all lovers of popular culture, but is an absolute mecca for romance. I had no idea how many hidden jewels the Browne Library contained until I was lucky enough to…
I'm delighted to share the news of a lovely review for THE OFFER from RT Book Reviews!

This book features two self-assured, capable protagonists who face down some very realistic challenges — and save each other’s hearts in the process. Their camaraderie and chemistry is evident from their first encounter, and their banter comes as easy as their growing love, giving readers plenty of reasons to root for this unlikely match." —RT Book Reviews, 4 stars
