Audiobook Review: Deception (Highland Brides of Skye #3) by Tarah Scott and April Holthaus, narrated by George Ellington

 

Blurb

Highland Brides of Skye Mini-series
Over the years, many lasses have found refuge in the Scottish Highland’s Glenwood Abbey. But for three young ladies, sanctuary becomes servitude, with master puppeteer Malcom Donald using them in his plan to rule the Isle of Skye.

Deception
Betrothed to Lady Allison, the granddaughter of the dying MacKenzie laird, Jacob MacKinnon stands ready to do his duty and unite their two clans. But enemies watch, and plan to prevent the uniting of those two powers.
After an attack on his betrothed’s carriage leaves only Lady Allison alive, Jacob is determined to find her would-be killers.
Linnae Donald is a lowly serving girl. How is she supposed to tell Laird MacKenzie that the granddaughter he’s mistaken her for died when their carriage was attacked?
She can’t break a dying man’s heart. Neither can she do what Jacob MacKinnon asks and help him prevent a war by pretending to be Lady Alison…and marrying him.

My Review - 4 of 5 stars - 

A story of tragedy, deception, and love. Linnae traveled with her friend Lady Allison when an accident kills everyone but Linnae. Mistaken for Lady Allison when rescued, she tried honesty but was sworn to continue the charade by Jacob, who only wanted Allison's dying grandfather to die peacefully. Secrets come out, danger hovers, and a generous dying man brings the couple together in a permanent way. Linnae and Jacob had chemistry and insta-love to culminate into an HEA.
George Ellington narrated this 3rd book in the series, and he did a great job again. I enjoyed his different intonations for all the characters.

This is my unsolicited review.

Blurb:

He’s sworn to protect his heart, but she’s ready to serve up some holiday cheer.

When it comes to happiness, grumpy Sheriff Cal Cassidy is an officer in need of assistance. But he’s not ready for it to come in the form of his son’s pretty new preschool teacher. Sure, she’s kind and she’s patient and she smells like cinnamon cookies. But her head is too far in the clouds to ever see eye to eye with a down to earth man like him.

It will take a holiday miracle for Angel Cabrera to get through to her favorite student’s father. In spite of his challenges, little Justin Cassidy is an absolute ray of sunshine in her classroom. On the other hand, Justin’s dad is basically a storm cloud in a sheriff’s hat. As wildly intimidating as he is arrestingly handsome, Sheriff Cassidy has Angel’s heart exceeding the speed limit every time they meet.

When Angel finds herself alone for the holidays, she decides to offer her services as Justin's tutor. Suddenly, Angel and Cal are spending a whole lot of time together, and battling an attraction they are both desperately trying to deny.

Will these opposites waive their right to remain silent about their feelings for each other? Or will the sheriff and the small-town teacher part ways before they can see what they have in common, and how much they agree on what is truly important?

Trinity Falls Sweet Romance is all about finding family – one clean & wholesome romance at a time.

From a widower discovering he has feelings for his kids’ nanny, to a soldier finding out about a secret baby, to a single dad falling in love with his child’s preschool teacher, you’ll lose yourself in these feel-good books celebrating love, family, and the very special small-town community of Trinity Falls.

Cowboy's Cafe Crush by Clara Pines releases on February 13th!

FREE with Kindle Unlimited

Blurb:

He’s keeping his fortune a secret and pretending to date his crush. But if this city kid-turned cowboy wants to land true love this holiday season, he might just have to lay all his cards on the table.

Holly Fields loves her small town, her job at the local café, and even her gruff boss. But life has handed her a difficult year. Her big sister passed away, breaking her heart. And Holly now has custody of her beloved niece. Making sure the bright eight-year-old has love, support, and everything she needs is a privilege that is worth any challenge she might bump into along the way. But when Holly’s mom constantly voices her fears that it’s too much for a young woman to do alone, it feels a bit like she’s just waiting for Holly to mess up.

In a moment of weakness, Holly hints that she’s seeing someone, even though dating is the last thing on her mind. And when a surprise holiday visit leaves her in the lurch, help arises from the most unexpected source.

Julian Cabrera just made a fortune selling a tech invention so specialized even his own family doesn’t understand it. Moving to small town Trinity Falls to be near his sister Angel gives him time to get his head around his new financial position before he has to tell anyone else about it. He works at Cassidy Farm in the mornings and spends his afternoons at the local café, trying to come up with his next project – something meaningful that might actually make the world a better place.

When Julian overhears that his favorite waitress is in a jam, he steps in to help her without hesitation. After all, he has admired her kind spirit and pretty smile since his very first visit to the coffee shop. The opportunity to spend more time with the sweet young woman and her exuberant niece is too much for the cowboy-in-training to resist. 
But as the holiday season unfurls, will the two be able to keep up the ruse? Or is fake dating your real crush too hard after all?

Blurb:

The Devil owns Reaper’s Vale.

He’s the president of a notorious motorcycle club that rules with an iron fist.

No one dares to stand in his way. Until I do.

Three merciless bikers show up at my workplace and demand answers.

They think my family stole from them.

We didn't, and I won't be bullied.

When I’m taken prisoner as collateral and held against my will, I swear I'll find a way to escape.

I've heard the rumors about this club.

Ruthless men on their steel beasts who ride through the vale without reprisal.

I expected to lose my freedom, just not . . . my heart.

And now it’s too late.

My past collides with the present, revealing shocking secrets and endangering the ones I love.

I’ll do whatever it takes to survive, even if that means betraying the bikers I no longer hate.

My twisted need for justice won't be silenced.

I'm going to burn every tainted memory along with the bastards that hurt me.

But my iron riders won't let me fight alone.

They're willing to risk war, their club, and their hearts to ensure our enemies go to ground and nothing is left but ashes.

My Review - 4 of 5 stars -


Quite a gritty and steamy read. Henny had an extremely rough past, but she had gotten to a better place in life. Then danger came to her. To get important information, Devil, Reaper, and Raiden and the rest of the RVMC were willing to kidnap and more. Henny did not want to be found until she learned the contents of Amelia's secret package. I enjoyed how she interacted with Devil, Reaper, and Raiden, and found a way into their hearts. No smooth sailing though. This was not an HEA with more to come, and I look forward to it.

He gave her up to save her…


Murphy knows the kind of life he lives with the Banachi isn’t for everyone. Danger is always one step away and that’s why he pushed away the woman he loved five years ago. He had claimed Tatum for a brief moment but knew he couldn’t keep her if he wanted her to be safe.


Imagine Murphy’s surprise when that danger comes straight for him and throws Tatum at his feet.


Murphy needs to decide if there is a place in his life for Tatum or break her heart all over again. Either way, they’re both in danger.
