Escape to the Past....

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello and welcome back! I hope you´re all keeping warm and healthy with this strange winter weather we´ve been having, and enjoying some new romances. I´ve got three new ones for you this week, so let´s get started.

First up is Sandra Hill´s Blue Viking (Leisure Historical). I have to say before I start that Ms. Hill is one of my favorite authors so I expected to really like this one. I wasn´t disappointed, though it took me a little while to get into the start of the book. Rurik has been searching for several years now for Maire, not because he especially wants her, but because she left him with a blue tattoo in the center of his face after their one night together. And now that he´s found her, he intends to make sure she uses her witchly powers to remove the mark so he can wed another woman. Except that Maire isn´t the most competent of witches, and Rurik keeps getting distracted by her kisses. For me, this one is another keeper to add to my shelf. Rurik is the sexiest Viking since, well, since Ms. Hill´s last Viking tale. I´m giving this one four of Cupid´s five arrows.


Next up is "The Law and Miss Hardisson" by Lynna Banning (Harlequin Historicals). Clayton Black is on a mission, both personal and legal, to bring back the man who murdered his father and sister. But a set up by the man in question leaves him injured and then in jail. Irene Hardisson is the lady lawyer in town, and she has already interefered in Clay´s plans once, though having her for his attorney isnt´ the worst thing in the world. This pair strikes off sparks that could ignite a bonfire, and the story is very compelling. Clay and Irene have earned three and a half of Cupid´s arrows.


Finally, we have "The Irish Bride" (Jove Irish Eyes) by Lynn Bailey, who is becoming a new favorite for me. Nicholas Kirwin has to find a way to save his family from ruin, and Rietta Ferris has the money to do it. Too bad he´s attracted to her sister Blanche. Rietta´s father has other ideas, though, including marrying off the elder Rietta first. And when he gets to know her better, Nick suddenly isn´t so attracted to her sister anymore, but Rietta doesn´t realize that right away, believing she´s fallen for a man who can never love her. Nicely told tale, with a hero who´ll melt your heart. Cupid´s lent me three and a half arrows for this one as well.


Happy reading!
