The Truth About Lord Stoneville By Sabrina Jeffries


Book one for the First In the Series Challenge:
The Truth about Lord Stoneville is one book I passed by several times in the bookstore recently. Until a friend of mine told me about it I went back and picked it up and boy am I glad I did.
Lord Oliver Stoneville is one character I will not forget , He has it all the bad boy past , a wounded soul, and charm to make any woman fall in love with him. His Grandmother has had enough of his and his sibling's wicked ways and devises a plan to have all her grand children settle down within the year In order to inherit her fortune they must all marry by the endof the year or they are cut out of the will. Oliver comes up with a plan of his own and goes to the brothal to look for his "Fiancee" and ends up bringing home Maria a American who is in search of her real Fiancee who has gone missing. In the process she runs in to Lord Stoneville and he makes her an offer she can't refuse. This book is the first in the Hellions Of Hallstead Series by Sabrina Jeffires and is one of my favorites for this year. Lord Stoneville will not be leaving my house any time soon he has found a home on my bookshelf. I plan on revisting him from time to time. Book 2 In the Hellions of Hallstead Series : A Hellion In Her Bed Comes out Sept 21, 2010 Can't Wait for It!

Forever Amber By Kathleen Winsor: 972 pages worth of pure drama!


Forever Amber is one of the classic historical novels of our times. So far this year it is one of my favorite books. It took me a month to read it but boy was it fun. Amber St Clare is no ordinary woman she wants nothing more than the one man she can not have Lord Bruce Carlton.
She meets Lord Carlton at the age of 16 and falls madley in love with him but there is only one problem Bruce loves Amber but not enough to marry her. Amber sees this as a challenge she sleeps her way through london and marries wealthy men with titles only to have them die on her leaving her a wealthy woman. The King of England couldn't resist her charms and makes her a Duchess. But none of this matters because Bruce has now married another woman leaving Amber fusterated and angry to the point of confronting his lordship's wife with some scandalous information about her husband. ..
My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book Amber was the type of heroine you root for through out the story and hope that in the end she gets her man. This book had it all history, drama, Action, and of course love.If you have time this year to read a really long book this one may be the one to pick up. I will be watching the film version in a couple of weeks so watch for the review here as well.
