TLC Book Tours: Lord of the Privateers by Stephanie Laurens

Lord of the Privateers
The Adventurer's Quartet, Volume 4
Stephanie Laurens
Copyright 2016
Mira
ISBN: 9780778319733
The Story:
Revel in the action, drama, intrigue and passion as the Frobishers— with help from Wolverstone, the Cynsters and many familiar others— steer the adventure to a glorious end.

Unstoppable determination 

Widely known as the lord of the privateers, Royd Frobisher expects to execute the final stage of the rescue mission his brothers have begun. What he does not expect is to be pressured into taking Isobel Carmichael—his childhood sweetheart, former handfasted bride and current business partner—with him. A force of nature, Isobel has a mission of her own: to find and bring a young cousin safely home. And along the way, she hopes to rid herself of the dreams of a life with Royd that still haunt her.

Unfinished business

Neither expects the shock that awaits them as they set sail, much less the new horizons that open before them as they embark on a full-scale rescue-assault on the compound deep in the jungle. Yet despite the support of his brothers and their ladies, Royd and Isobel discover that freeing the captives is only half the battle. To identify and convict the conspirators behind the illicit enterprise—and save England from political disaster—they must return to the ballrooms of the haut ton and hunt the villains on their home ground.

Unforgettable love 

But having found each other again, having glimpsed the heaven that could yet be theirs, how much are Royd and Isobel willing to risk in the name of duty?

The Story:
Sharon Page sparkles in this poignant and irresistibly entertaining follow-up to her breakout novel, An American Duchess.

Determined to usher the cursed Worthington estate into a prosperous, modern new era, and thus preserve her beloved late fiancĂ©’s legacy, the willful Julia tackles her wildest, most unexpected adventure in Cal Carstairs, the reluctant new Earl of Worthington.

he unconventional American artist threatens everything Julia seeks to protect while stirring desires she thought had died in the war. For reasons of his own, Cal has designed the ultimate revenge. Rather than see the estate prosper, he intends to destroy it. But their impulsive marriage—one that secures Julia’s plans as well as Cal’s secrets—proves that passion is ambition’s greatest rival. Unless Cal ends his quest to satisfy his darkest vendetta, he stands to ruin his Worthington wife and all her glittering dreams.

TLC Book Tours: Wild Horse Springs by Jodi Thomas

Wild Horse Springs
Jodi Thomas
Copyright 2017
HQN Books
ISBN: 9780373799275
The Story:
In the heart of Ransom Canyon, sometimes the right match for a lonely soul is the one you least expect 

Dan Brigman may not lead the most exciting life, but he's proud of what he's achieved: he's a respected lawman, and he's raised a bright, talented daughter on his own. But finding a lone, sparkly blue boot in the middle of a deserted highway gets him thinking maybe the cowgirl who lost it is exactly the shake-up he needs.

After losing her baby girl, Brandi Malone felt like her soul died along with her daughter. Now singing in small-town bars to make ends meet, she's fine being a drifter—until a handsome sheriff makes her believe that parking her boots under his bed is a better option.

College grad Lauren Brigman has just struck out on her own in downtown Dallas when a troubling phone call leads her back home to Crossroads. Her hometown represents her family, friends and deepest hopes, but also her first love, Lucas Reyes. Will Lauren's homecoming be another heartbreak, or a second chance for her and Lucas?

My Thoughts:
So many times I've been pulled in by a gorgeous cover only to be let down by a complete disaster of a story house between it. Thankfully, I'm happy to report that is not the case with The Mark of the King by Jocelyn Green. The cover has got to be one of the best of the new year, and the story is pretty good too. Having never read a book by Ms. Green, but having read a few rave reviews for some of her previous works, I decided to take the plunge.

Not only is the cover unique for the Christian fiction genre, but the setting is too! It's not everyday one comes across a tale that's set in a place and during a time that was such a pivotal period for the south. French, British, Spanish, and Native Americans were all at odds, trying to gain the upper hand and Jocelyn Green presents a story of what could have been in The Mark of the King, story of French born Julianne Chevalier.
