Highland Promise RECOMMENDED: Highland Promise by Alyson McLayne is $2.99! This is the first book in The Sons of Gregor MacLeod series and the other books are also on sale. I read this one and gave it a B+: If you love a Disney princess, in all their saccharine, animal-loving, pure-of-heart glory, you’ll love Caitlin. If you have a weakness for kilted heroes, there’s plenty of plaid to go around. It’s a pretty pleasing start to a new series and worth a shot, especially since the cover model has some Sam Heughan vibes, don’t you think? Five boys destined to become Highland lairds are fostered together as brothers. Darach, Lachlan, Callum, Gavin and Kerr fight for their clans, for each other, and for their own true loves. When forced to choose between duty and honor… Darach MacKenzie vowed never again to let a woman near his heart after his betrothed betrayed him. It sparked an intense feud between his clan and the Frasers. With all-out war on the wind, Darach can’t be distracted—not even by a sweet and charming lass who desperately needs his help. This Highland Laird will find a way to have both… When Darach rescued Caitlin MacInnes from…

C- A Lady in Disguise by Lynsay Sands June 25, 2019 · Avon Contemporary RomanceRomance If A Lady in Disguise is ever made into a movie, and it does not star Carole Lombard, I’ll be very disappointed. True, Lombard died in 1942, but why must we quibble over such small details? This book is a screwball comedy romance that revolves around a Big Misunderstanding. I’m not fond of Big Misunderstandings but I do believe in the maxim “Go big or go home,” and while I was not crazy about the book I have to admit that it certainly commits to its premise. The set up is that Lady Maggie Wentworth has to raise some extra money after her brother dies in the Napoleonic Wars. He used to write for The Daily Express under the initials G.W. and no one knew who he really was. Maggie takes over the column, using the initials, and is assigned to interview women at a brothel – the very same establishment in which the famous Lady X works. Who is Lady X, that irresistible courtesan who is highly cultured and always wears a red mask? As one of my aunties likes to say, “All will be…
