Today, we are featuring The Captain of Her Fate, a saucy and sophisticated Regency romance by Nina Mason, the author of Devil in Duke’s Clothing and The Governess Next Door, among many other books.

                             BOOK BLURB 

Captain Theobald Raynalds lost his leg at the Battle of Trafalgar and with it, his belief any woman could find a cripple like him unobjectionable enough to love.

Louisa Bennet finds Theo incredibly attractive—both as a man in his own right and as an alternative to the odious cousin her father has arranged for her to marry.

First, however, she must convince the Captain her interest in him stems from the man he is, scars and all, and not on his being the lesser of evils.

Who wants a taste of the captain 

After the Captain’s sister quit the room, Louisa took her advice and dozed until a knock on her bedchamber door brought her back to herself. Just as she opened her mouth to ask who was there, Capt. Raynalds called through the door, “Miss Bennet, may I have a word?”
She hesitated before answering. As desperately as she wanted to see him and hear what he came to say, her sense of propriety told her to refuse him entry. Entertaining a gentleman in her bedchamber was shockingly improper. Under the circumstances, however, she could not bring herself to send him away.
Pulling the bedclothes to her chin to cover the sheer nightgown his sister had loaned her, she said, “Yes, Captain. You may enter.”
He opened the door and, with the aid of his cane, limped to the bedside and looked down at her, his expression inexplicably stern. “Does my sister speak the truth?”
The question at once shocked Louisa’s heart and aroused her fury. She could not decide which she would rather do, curl up and die or strangle his sister with her bare hands. How could the girl betray her confidence by telling her brother her plans?—if, indeed, that was what she had disclosed. Perhaps it was not, in which case, Louisa would be wise to tread carefully to avoid betraying her own secrets (and his trust in the process).
She blinked under his probing stare. “How can I answer that when I have no idea what she might have told you?”
“She told me your father intends to marry you off to a man you despise.”
He looked very unhappy, which pleased her immeasurably. “Yes, that is true. He wants me to marry the cousin to whom his estate is entailed—to ensure my mother and sisters will have somewhere to live after he departs this world.”
The Captain, hands stacked atop his cane, shifted his stance uneasily. “I can understand his motives—he is only doing what he believes best for his family, one can only presume—but I cannot agree with his forcing you to marry a man you abhor. Does he know how much you loathe your cousin?”
“He does.”
“And he insists upon you marrying this man in spite of your feelings?”
“My feelings are of little consequence to my father, I assure you.”
He scrubbed a hand down his face. “Surely there must be some way around marrying this person.”
Did she dare share her idea? No, she mustn’t. If she did, he would never come to trust her. “There is not, short of running away and living as a gypsy.”
He stood there a long time, as if fighting an inner battle. At length, he said, “There is one way I can think of…but I fear I am not the man for the job.”
Louisa’s heart wilted. “You are right. We are strangers. So why should you care what becomes of me?”
Softening in demeanor, he came closer and sat beside her on the bed. “I do care what becomes of you, Miss Bennet—beyond what I am willing to admit—but my heart is not quite invested enough to put a ring on your finger. Neither is my trust. And now, in addition to my standard reservations, I suspect you mean to use me to avoid marrying this cousin of yours.”
“That is untrue!” She looked away so he would not see the desperation in her eyes. “Well, it might be partially true…but I shall endeavor to fall in love with you as soon as I’m able.”
He smiled at her sympathetically. “Forgive me. I by no means wish you unhappy. Truly, I do not. But neither can I consent to binding myself to a woman on the off-chance she will fall in love with me.”
“So, you refuse to help me?”
Turning away from her, he said, with an indignant edge to his voice, “That is supremely unfair, Miss Bennet. Have I not helped you already? Did I not come to your aid when you fell off your horse? Did I not take you in when your own mother left you to my care? Have I not kept my distance to protect you from scandal and ruin?”
The last bit astonished her. Did he really fear what might happen if they were alone together? Were that indeed the case, she might exploit his passions to aid her cause. Much as she hated to resort to such deceitful measures, she could see no other way to escape her marriage to Charles. And it would not be entirely an act; for just now, with him sitting so near, so dangerously near, she wanted nothing more than to be in his arms.
“What if I want you to ruin me?”

                          MY REVIEW 
          book one MORGAN'S DIARY    
  This is the book that started the obsession with this series . Morgan is a mortician's assistant  She starts working for mr tall dark and sexy Jason Delaware . The mortician and also married man who's wife is just a little on the extremely weird side . Mercedes is well lets just say that she has some very unusual tastes . Won't go into detail but you will either like her or really hate her .
     I adored the characters in this book . Morgan is such a kick butt character . She is strong and sexy and adores the people that she loves . She goes through so much you just kind of want to wrap her up and hug her tight . . Jason well he is just hot , sexy and oh so brooding . You can't help but fall for him and his ways . Mercedes on the other hand is evil oh so evil  you really just want to strangle her any chance you got .
     This story has it all the mystery and intrigue and oh so sexy scenes . Trust me the sexy scenes well the good ones will melt your kindle . So you must read this book . Its hot , hot hot.  

      I absolutely loved this companion book to the Fragile Ghosts series . We see life with Piper Morgan and Jason. This novella is just a short glimpse into their lives . Poe the protector of miss Piper and her best friend . The knower of all her secrets and the kitty shoulder to lean on when Piper is hurting . This helps set up the next book in the series. Trust there is a very sad aspect to the story that will make you cry. I did at least . Now I can't wait for the next book to come out. So if you want a great series to read check out the fragile Ghost series . You won't be disappointed in the least.     
This is the third book in the series and the one book I have been waiting for. Jason and Morgan have raised their daughter Piper in relative quiet . The evil Mercedes is gone for now . When Piper heads to Ireland to continue her studies , things aren't what they seem . Jason and Morgan have trouble letting go and have reason to . Mercedes is up to no good and Piper is the target . Piper won't go down easily . Will Piper survive to live the life of love with the man of her dreams .
I was so excited for this installment . I absolutely love this series , why you may ask . Well I will tell you . The characters are well written and complex . You will fall in love with Piper . She is the gutsy woman that you want to be . She is sweet and caring and so loving . Declan is a new character and the man that Piper falls in love with . He is a strong caring guy who will go to the ends of the earth to be with his Piper . He is a detective and is adorably cute. The rest of the family is back also . Jason and Morgan and Nolan Walker all come to help find Piper . Mercedes is just as evil as ever I am thinking even more evil in this installment .

This book was a great read I read it in a evening . I got sucked in and couldn't put the book down . The author took me on such an emotional journey , I laughed and cry oh boy did I cry . The last part of the book is really hard to read because of all the emotions it will bring up . Especially when Poe makes an appearance . This is a dark book and there are some things that will creep you out ok well may Mercedes is the one that will creep you out lol. You do find out a lot more of Mercedes past life in this book also . So if you want a good read on a cold night . Grab your copy and a box of Kleenex and a cup of tea and sit down and enjoy

  Over all I loved this series all the characters were great and complex . You will fall in love with them you will laugh and trust me you will cry . Especially in book three. The books take us through the lives of this couple then family . You see them at their high points and their lowest points . You see them fall in love and fight the evil that can happen and the steps that one will go to protect their loved ones . So if you want a sexy dark read that will keep you reading all night long this is the series for you . So check it out

Books to curl up with: GOOD MONDAY ALL

Books to curl up with: GOOD MONDAY ALL:    Good morning all hope you all had a great weekend . The weather here was well lets say not the best so I did what any snow bunny would do...


   Good morning all hope you all had a great weekend . The weather here was well lets say not the best so I did what any snow bunny would do hunker down and read all weekend . The book that had me reading is the new book by Tia Louise . HIT GIRL

                            BOOK BLURB 

My finest trick?
Convincing you I've forgotten.
Names on a list.
Faces in a crowd...
One little girl.
He told me to get over it, let it go.
I can't do that. 
I want them to pay.

                         MY REVIEW 

    Welcome to my world where I promise to get even with everyone that hurt me . The list grows longer with each young girl we rescue . I want them to pay, to hurt and to die for what they have done .  That is the mantra of Molly the young girl who has been through so much in her young life . She is now older but still on a mission to kill those that do the unthinkable to young girls . She has grown older and a little bit wiser . Joshua is the love of her life . She loves him and he knows some of her past . But there are parts that she still needs to tell him and bring him in . They make a great team and with the time they will get their happily ever after . 
    The author writes with an intensity that will suck you in from the first page .  The characters are complex and you can't help but love them . Molly is such a tortured character . She has gone from a little girl to a woman who is out to right a few horrendous wrongs . But is she really a hero , a killer or a vigilante . You really don't know you will cheer for her and shed a tear  or two . You really get to see her finally grow and become the woman that the girls in the safe house needs to be . She finally realizes that she has it all and the men will no longer hurt her . Her love Joshua is a sweet guy who loves her with all his heart . He knows that she has gone through so much but there are things he doesn't know but he loves her anyway. Josh seems to be able to keep Molly sane and safe with his own brand of love he has for her . Her mentor Stas is a character that you just don't know what to think of him . But we find out so much about him towards the end of the book ,you just want to hug him and tell him things will be ok . He turns out to be a great guy . The rest of the gang is also back to help Molly when she needs it . 
   This is a great stand alone but it also fits nicely into the story of Lara and it is a great ending . The characters are really driven and you will fall in love with them. I must say I did have a little crush on Molly she is one driven woman with a passion. There are moments where I did want to strangle her a few times . The author takes us to some places that will make you go holy moly what did she just do to us .  I will tell you this my attitude towards Molly so changes since first reading about her in the Bright lights series . I really didn't like her in that series but in this book she really spoke to me , she won me over big time . So if you want a book full of intrigue and lots of sexy smoldering times . This book has it all for you . Check it out
