MakeMeLoveYouMake Me Love You by Johanna Lindsey (historical, Gallery, July 2016)

 

Summary:
One duel could be considered a matter of honor, but three duels are attempted murder! With enlightened society outraged at such reckless behavior among young noblemen, the Prince Regent orders Robert Whitworth, the earl of Tamdon’s heir, and Lord Dominic Wolfe to end their dispute by allying their families through marriage. Whichever party refuses to comply will forfeit his lands and title.

 

Whitworth relishes the idea of sending his younger sister Brooke to his enemy’s remote estate. He knows the Wolf will reject her as a bride, thereby losing his wealth and status. The Wolf, however, is determined to scare away the Whitworth chit. With dueling no longer an available means of destroying the man he abhors, he will be satisfied to see him lose his lands and title. But he hadn’t expected his enemy’s sister to be so resourceful or resilient.

ILovedRogueI feel so much more removed from historical romances than I used to be. At one point, historical romance was my go-to genre. But in 2015, I made an effort to read more and therefore have a good number of them on my favorite reads of 2015! I already posted my favorite kinky reads of 2015 and my favorite new to me authors of 2015.

 

I Loved a Rogue by Katharine Ashe: This romance has a vicar’s daughter and the gypsy she has always loved. Talieson returns home, after years away, and Eleanor isn’t sure what to do. Her life is in a bit of an uproar with her father’s very recent marriage. She feels a bit left out and left behind. With Talieson’s return, Eleanor decides to go off on an adventure to find out about her family (she and her sisters were adopted). Things between Eleanor and Talieson are tense and fraught with sexual tension. He doesn’t believe he is good enough for Eleanor, but also can’t resist her. I adored the emotional angst and longing in this romance. It was at times a tense read, but so very worth it. Also, I recommend reading the Prince Catcher books in order as there is a series arc.
