  • Loved the hero

    Colin FitzRoy married Lady Daphne at his mothers request. After a not so great wedding night he leaves for war and stays away for 7 years. Lady Daphne is a little in love with Colin when they marry and has very high hopes for their marriage but is heartbroken when Colin leaves. Seven years later Colin is back and has been asked by his mother in law to help Daphne with whatever trouble she is in. Although Daphne does not want Colins help she definitely needs it. As Colin and Daphne work together they finally get to really know one another and fall in love. I usually avoid second chance romances because the hero usually sleeps around while the heroine is celibate which is not romantic to me. But in Colin we have a true Hero, one who is celibate and committed to his vows! Yay! There are not enough of them in romance novels.

  • Absolutely MUST Read - I loved it!

    Series: The Survivors #7 Publication Date: 2/11/20 With each new release in this series, I always say, “This one is my very favorite.” And in each case, that is absolutely true. Again, this one is my very favorite so far. I loved Daphne from the very first page, but it took me a while to warm up to Colin. I think it was because I had a hard time understanding how he became so emotionally closed off based on the circumstances given in the book. Anyway – I did love him in the end. BTW, one of the reasons I absolutely loved this book is that the villain got his just desserts! I absolutely detest it when the villain gets little or no punishment. While this is part of a series, you can easily read it as a standalone – not that I understand why you’d want to – the entire series is great. If you do decide to read it as a standalone, I’ll give you some background on The Survivors. During the Napoleonic wars, an elite group of thirty men with special skills was formed to take on what were basically suicide missions. None of them expected to survive the war. Of the thirty men, twelve survived and returned home to England. These are the stories of their struggles with survivor's guilt and fitting back into a society where they never really fit in the first place. Colin FitzRoy is the younger son of a Viscount and a surviving member of the group Lieutenant Draven formed during the war. Colin was known within the group as The Pretender because of his skills for disguise, blending into the background, and showing no emotion. He could become all but invisible and blend right in with any group. Colin married a lovely young woman, at the request of his ill mother, just before he left for the wars. Since he was sure he wouldn’t be returning, there was no problem with honoring his mothers request, and it wouldn’t hurt the young lady that he lacked the ability to love or really have any kind of emotion. Lady Daphne, the daughter of the Duke of Warcliffe, is beautiful, smart, resourceful, charming and well-liked among the ton. She wanted to marry her husband, but it sure turned out different than she expected. He left her after one miserable wedding night and hasn’t contacted her since. He’s been back in England for over a year and still, he hasn’t contacted her. Now, she finds herself in trouble – big trouble – and a husband should normally be the first person she would turn to for aid. Since she can’t count on him and she got herself into the mess, she’ll just have to figure out how to handle it herself. Even after Colin approaches her to ask if she’s in trouble and to offer help, she denies it. She can’t let herself get close to him again and suffer another broken heart. She caused her problem and she’ll solve it! Their yin-yang, push-pull, on-off dance was fun to watch and I thoroughly enjoyed watching Colin when his grand epiphany occurred. They were a lovely couple and a delight to come to know. I thoroughly enjoyed the read and can’t wait for the next book. Duncan Murray, one of Lieutenant Draven’s group – and a Scotsman, was featured in this book and I assume he’ll be the subject of the next book in the series. I really liked him. I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

  • How the Lady was Won.....

    They've been married for 7 years but have only spent a few minutes together on their wedding night! If that doesn't catch your attention, I don't know what will! lol I so enjoyed Daphne and Colin's story, such an unusual one, with a hero deathly afraid of love and emotions. When Colin returns from the war after 7 years away, he would be more than happy to forget he even has a wife but when he finds out she's in trouble, he has no choice but to come to her aid. Daphne cannot forgive him for having abandoned her all these years ago but she admits that she does need his help in a situation she got herself into. Amidst the danger, passions flare and no matter how much Colin tries to deny it, he IS emotionally involved. Well written story, lots of action, danger, subterfuge and heated passion. I must add that I really love the cover as well! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

  • Hero is Especially Wonderful!

    I enjoyed this 7th in series about a group of war heroes/friends and their HEAs. This features Colin, dubbed The Pretender for his ability to hide his feelings and blend in and Daphne, the headstrong duke’s daughter he marries and then leaves for 7 years to go wage war. They were obliged to marry because of their parents, but Daphne has always secretly loved him. However Colin finds it hard to show or even develop feelings as he fears loss and abandonment. There is some danger and adventure here, however rather than Colin automatically assuming the protective hero role, Daphne insists on helping to get herself out of the situation (as she caused it), and Colin is receptive and admiring of this. I liked that this hero was a bit different as they married young, and he had absolutely no experience with women (which is a rarity in the typical historical romance hero). I liked their growth, both individually and as a couple. An overall solidly good story.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Perfectly Wonderful!

    London 1810 "He wasn't suppose to be nervous. He was suppose to be confident and self-assured, to soothe his bride's frayed nerves. But Colin had never done this before." Yes the first line drew me in quickly! Colin and Daphne were married due to their mother's being best friends and arranging for them to join their families. Logical? Well, they hardly knew each other and to say it was an awkward wedding night.. He was going to the Continent to fight the French and would probably get killed anyway! Yes, I felt so bad for these two! Then.... Seven years later...Colin returned and he ought Daphne out because her mother had said she was in trouble and needed help. Oh yes, now they were both mature and it really got interesting!! Colin was use to holding in his emotions, he played a part and Daphne was the exact opposite! But there was a fire about to spark as they traded quips. I will leave it at that because I feel the need to tell you the entire story, but you will just have to find out for yourself! Delightful, humorous (yes laugh out loud moments), tense, mysterious, a braw Scot (cannot wait for his story!), vicious "friends", a villian, and everything needed for a perfect romance that melted my heart!!!

    Thanks for your feedback!
