Until You're Mine

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! The sun is shining in my window, and the birds are singing their spring songs, and I can hardly stand to be inside. Yet here I am. And I've got four new historicals this time out, so let's get started.

First up is Judith A. Lansdowne's Just Impossible
Just Impossible
(Zebra). Julia Delacroix is desperate to sell her last family heirloom to ensure a season for her cousin--and so that she can seek out the object of her revenge plot--and William Thorne, Duke of Berinwick, is the man she intends to sell it to, no matter what sort of frightening person he may be. When she and her cousin, along with one of his wards show up on his doorstep unexpectedly, he can't very well not welcome them into his home. There are a lot of secondary characters in this one to keep track of, and subplots galore. I considered taking notes to keep track of everyone and their track through the story. Not a keeper for me. It's earned three of Cupid's five arrows.

Next is Kate Silver's Thief of Hearts
Thief of Hearts
(Zebra). Miriame Dardagny is only living up to her past when she steals from the man she rescues from certain death in that alley in Paris. Becoming a musketeer will help her change her life. Jean-Paul Metin, however, recovers from his injuries and heads off to find the person who stole his identity. Finding a young woman in his place isn't exactly what he expects. This one is fun, and touching, and may leave you wishing the story went on just a little longer so you could spend more time with this pair. I'm giving it four arrows.

Georgina Gentry's To Tame a Rebel
To Tame a Rebel
(Zebra) is next. This one is two stories in one, and if you love Civil War and Indian romances, you may liked this one, which combines both into one. The first part is the story of the happily-widowed Twilight Dumont and Yellow Jacket, a Creek warrior out for revenge, and their unexpected romance. The second part is spy April Grant and Confederate soldier Jim Eagle's story, with seemingly insurmountable obstacles to their happiness. Interesting, and plenty of realistic detail. It's earned three arrows as well.

Finally is Lisa Higdon's Until You're Mine
Until You're Mine
(Zebra). Laura Lancaster is in dire straits, the owner of the theater where she acted having disappeared and leaving the company unpaid and with no prospects. When it seems her only option to avoid living in the streets is to find a protector, she meets Julian Norcliff, Earl of Lockwood, whose motives aren't as clear-cut as the other "gentlemen" at the soiree. What he wants is for her to play a part, not to be his mistress. While the arrangement seems ideal, both of them long for more, even though the situation appears impossible. I truly enjoyed this story, the emotional depth and the characters. I'm giving this one four and a half arrows.

Until next time, happy reading!
