Take Me Home:
Inary is at a defining moment in her life. Having spent a night with Alex, she's just told him it was all an awful blunder to have done so. She has to return to Scotland when her young sister's health deteriorates. By doing so, she has to face up to the agonizing past she has been trying so hard to hide.

Life becomes more convoluted than she could ever have envisaged. On top of her sister's poor health, she has an aggressive brother, an ex she doesn’t fancy meeting again, and her contradictory sentiments about Alex and an attractive American she just met. As if that isn’t enough she recaptures an inexplicable gift from early years, a sixth sense, which helps her unearth a mystery that she must unravel to set her free.

Take Me Home is a beautiful story of love, loss, discovering one’s true abilities and, above all, never forgetting who you really are.

Take Me Home is thought-provoking, standing out with its unusual storyline and almost supernatural quality, a definite page turner.

This is a charming story; both mesmerizing and poignant. It keeps you turning the pages from the very first paragraph, and when it ends it leaves you craving more.

Sebastian is dangerous. He’s a reprobate, but a well-read academic. When he’s not shocking ladies in bed, he’s offending genteel society with his scientific notions. He’s coveted, loathed, applauded, and reviled, but he jokes it all off.

Conversely, Violet, Countess of Cambury, is wholly upright and proper, and would rather remain that way. However, Violet has a skeleton in her cupboard that is potentially disastrous, one that bonds her to England’s most notorious scoundrel. Sebastian’s scientific concepts aren’t his, they are hers.

When Sebastian warns that he is about to suspend their age-old machinations, she decides she will do whatever is necessary to rescue their alliance, even if it entails unlocking her passions to the reprobate who could demolish her emotions for good.

The research and background to The Countess Conspiracy is excellent. The location is fascinating and the story full of historical facts

The storyline illustrates a woman’s struggle to square her devotion to science, with society's expectation of a woman in her position. It was both touching and refreshing. A good read.

A Man Above Reproach:
In nineteenth century London, outrageous rumours envelop the pub known as the Sleeping Dove, a veiled brothel accommodating aristocrats keen to cast off the symbols of their classes. Josephine plays piano at the Dove and is identified only as the "Bawdy Bluestocking" to the pub's clientele.

When the Duke of Lennox is taken to the Sleeping Dove, he finds himself at the Bawdy Bluestocking's piano. Although the Duke cannot avoid flirting with her, she has a history to safeguard, unstable prospects, and no time for flippant aristocracy with gentle hands. When the Duke understands the facts, will he wish he had never seen her?
A Man Above Reproach
The Duke is an affable character. Josephine is friendly as well - a resilient protagonist who luckily doesn't do irresponsible things just to demonstrate she has resilience.

A Man Above Reproach is a good read. The tale is appealing, the characters entertaining, and the dialogue natural. There is humour in the story that is sometime sarcastic and sometimes quite witty. The tempo of the book is well paced and the characters generally avoid parody.

In all, the book makes an appealing interval over which to spend a few hours.

April's Fool

April’s Fool is an amusing read. It begins with an outlandish April joke that gets zanier.
It is a brisk, quirky story; charming, a little foreseeable in places, but it didn't take way from the enjoyment. There is no offensive language in April’s Fool, no sex, just an upbeat heart-warming frothy story.
