Add to Goodreads
After burying her spinster aunt, orphaned Veronica Speedwell is free to resume her world travels in pursuit of scientific inquiry—and the occasional romantic dalliance. As familiar with hunting butterflies as with fending off admirers, Veronica intends to embark upon the journey of a lifetime.
But fate has other plans when Veronica thwarts her own attempted abduction with the help of an enigmatic German baron, who offers her sanctuary in the care of his friend Stoker, a reclusive and bad-tempered natural historian. But before the baron can reveal what he knows of the plot against her, he is found murdered—leaving Veronica and Stoker on the run from an elusive assailant as wary partners in search of the villainous truth.
A Heart In The Balance by L.G. Rollins
Will be released on April 10, 2020
Lady Cassandra Lockhart is determined no one will taint the night her brother announces his engagement—not gossipy ladies nor backhanded Peers. When she sees a gentleman slip from the ballroom, Cassandra assumes the worst; he is off to rendezvous with a young lady. Such would surely spell disaster for the night. Certain she alone can protect her family’s good name, Cassandra hurries to stop him.
Lord Nigel Southcott is nervous over meeting his informant tonight. Still, at the predestined hour he slips from the ballroom and out toward the trees and shadows. Only too late, he realizes it’s a trap set by the infamous Le Renard. Equally as surprising is the beautiful stranger who comes to his aid.
To protect Nigel, Cassandra agrees to keep him hidden, knowing full well that doing so puts herself in danger of gossipmongers and French spies alike. Her reputation is on the line, and his very life—yet between the secrets and stratagem, a connection forms. Le Renard, though, is not willing to give up his prey so easily. Will Nigel and Cassandra’s wit and blossoming love be enough to save them? Or will the growing subterfuge swallow them both?
I had such a hard time choosing what I am going to read this week many books were picked up and put down after a few pages. The book listed below I started last night before I went to bed and I think its unique enough to keep my attention. Well here is to hoping that this is not a slump coming on.
