    historical romance

    A Mistress for Penndrake by Tammy L. Bailey Great meet-cute for Kate and Nathaniel when she chases her hat and he follows her… The fact that they had both received letters from the same person that in essence told them to do opposite things made for a great beginning to the story…she is averse to being with him and his goal is to be with her by hook or crook. There was a bit of an evil stepmother feeling in Kate’s Aunt Sophie and her cousins were a trial at times…much as Cinderella’s stepsisters were to her. The story had cousin Edward pulling strings from outside until he appeared on the scene and manipulated things in person. I liked most of the story and ended up happy with the ending of the book even wishing that this might be the first book in a series in which we will hear more about the two younger cousins of Kate and just who her manipulative but loving cousin Edward will end up with. The writing felt in keeping with the time period though the mixed emotions of Nathaniel got a bit old at times. All in all it was an enjoyable read and I would read another book by this author. Thank you to NetGalley and Entangled Publishing-Amara for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

    I Loved It

    Miss Kate Holden is trying to train herself to be a governess. She is a gently bred woman who's family is struggling financially. She is staying with her cousins and helping them through the season. Her father is trying to persuade her to marry his apprentice, who she dislikes immensely. When our heroine gets a letter from a cousin warning her away from a man she has never heard of things get confusing. Marquess of Wesley, Earl of Chelmsford has spent the year since his father's death trying to put the estate back together , only to find it had been gambled away. The man who won it is trying to blackmail him into marriage, but he has his own way to get it back. Our hero tries his best to stick with his plan, but problems with all the females he is surrounded by will make sure that's not possible. This is a very romantic and amusing story, with great characters. Our innocent and soft hearted heroine is in way over her head with this determined hero. I loved it.

    excellent book

    Kate Holden receives a note from her cousin, Edward Garrett, to stay away from Lord Wesley. Only one problem, she does not know a Lord Wesley. Eventually, she does meet him. She is concerned not knowing exactly what is the danger. Lord Wesley took over the title after his father died. He inherited quite a few debts. His father had even gambled away their home. An unusual story, so many things happen between the characters. The problems develop and you can see the growth thru out the story. I loved how the two main characters were so confused about what went on around them and their own emotions. It does keep you on edge. As you can tell the plot gets a little complicated, but it does keep your interest. I can't wait to see her next book. I received this ARC free and voluntarily reviewed it

    A difficult hero worth waiting for

    When I started to read this story, I liked our heroine Kate right off the bat. I enjoyed the way she met Wesley, though I didn't care for him as a hero right away. As a matter of fact, the more I read the more l disliked him! He was the hero of the book....How could I possibly like this story if I couldn't abide the hero? Well, considering I couldn't put this book down, it was apparent I could like it very much! It did take me a while to warm up to Wesley, but I eventually did once more of his background was revealed. You could tell he was quickly falling for Kate, but didn't want to be. And then, in his own unique way, he was attempting to be honorable. But our Kate was strong and knew what she wanted, and what he needed. So I started out not liking the hero and worrying there would be too much of a Cinderella vibe going on with her aunt and three cousins, and ended up not being able to tear myself away from the story. I will definitely be seeking out more books by Ms. Bailey. I received a copy of this book courtesy of NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.

    Revenge - enemies to lovers

    The very moment Kate receives a letter from her cousin warning her of Lord Wesley, who does she meet? Lord Wesley. His home was gambled away and in order to get it back he must marry Kate. But in an act of revenge against the blackmailer, Wesley decides to seduce and ruin Kate, win his home back and marry an heiress. This story had a lot of push and pull from the main characters. I must say that I had a hard time with Wesley’s decision except each time he had the opportunity to ruin Kate, he did not. I did like him for that. However, there seemed to be a lot of holes in this story that kept me from enjoying it completely, although I’m sure there will be others who can and will enjoy it regardless of the inconsistencies that concerned me. I choose not to go into them in order to keep those things free from other readers locking onto them as I did. While this was a very well written story, and the steam was appropriate for the story (if not the era, IMO but which I was ok with) the secondary characters were well developed but not very likable. With the exception of a few, most of them treated Kate as a servant. Despite her desire to become a governess, I didn’t understand why they would treat her so, as she was still family. I loved the premise of this story and I tried to put the little things out of my mind, but in the end it did ruin my overall reading enjoyment of the book. However, I believe this could be an “it’s me not the book” situation so please read other reviews to determine if this one will work for you. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book provided by NetGalley and Entangled. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
