Review of A Baron in Her Bed


A BARON IN HER BED may be purchased here.

A BARON IN HER BED
Maggi Andersen

Guy Truesdale, Baron Fortescue, has come to England to claim his title and estate.  After Guy's father was forced to flee England because of a duel,  he married an aristocratic French woman and the family lived abroad through the French Revolution and Napoleon's reign.  Now, Guy and his sister are all that is left of his immediate family, and he is determined to take his rightful place as Baron Fortescue.  Unfortunately, someone seems determined to end Guy's life.  Luckily, after Guy is injured in a murder attempt, Miss Horatia Cavendish comes upon him lying in the road and comes to his aid.  Because Horatia is dressed in male clothes, Guy thinks that she is a teenage boy.  Thus, begins the adventures of Horatia and Guy.

A BARON IN HER BED is a very entertaining historical with plenty of action and a nice mystery.  From the beginning until the very end, this book keeps the reader on her toes.  Action and adventure are part and parcel of this story, and Horatia and Guy are cut out to adapt to all the mystery and intrigue.  Guy has been through a lot in his life, and those experiences, probably, make him more forward thinking in his attitude toward women.  Horatia is an independent, headstrong woman, who seeks to help the man that she loves.  There is only one part of the story in which, I wish Horatia had
been less impulsive and more prudent.  Other than this one moment, Horatia makes an admirable heroine.

All in all, A BARON IN HER BED is a wonderful, exciting historical romance, which I highly recommend.

NOTE:  I received this book in return for an unbiased review.

Review of The Geek Girl and the Scandalous Earl


THE GEEK GIRL AND THE SCANDALOUS EARL may be purchased here.

THE GEEK GIRL AND THE SCANDALOUS EARL
Gina Lamm

Jamie Marten has been coasting through life, since her boyfriend left her.  Jamie has been mostly gaming online, but then her best friend gets her a job moving antiques.  While moving the antiques from a storage building, Jamie falls through a mirror and lands in the bedroom of Micah Axelby, Earl of Dunnington, almost two hundred years in the past.  When Micah discovers Jamie in modern summer clothes in his bed, he thinks that she is trying to seduce him.  But since Jamie injured her head tripping on Micah's dog, Baron, he allows her to stay and recover. 

THE GEEK GIRL AND THE SCANDALOUS EARL is a time travel romance with some amusing moments but a heroine, who has some TSTL moments.  Jamie is supposed to be intelligent, but, at times, is anything but prudent.  I found this annoying and wish, that she had not been so impulsive.  Micah is a great hero, described as a Colin Firth look-alike, but he is a little too stubborn in his efforts to protect Jamie.  With that said, I'm glad that the author offered up a reasonable explanation for the time travel.  I have read several books that lacked a viable explanation for the time travel, and it made the book a lot less enjoyable. 

All in all, THE GEEK GIRL AND THE SCANDALOUS EARL is a nice read, but I wish the heroine was a little less impulsive.
