About this Book:

A Lonely Doctor

His treatment for female hysteria calms his patients, and heats Dr. Thomas Winterbourne’s blood like nothing else. Unwed, and desperately lonely, he’s rejected the idea of marriage due to his singular desires.

A Thief

Jenny Marks feels no pity for the wealthy doctor who has more comfort than she has ever found in her nineteen years. She takes a job as his maid, intending on taking anything of value from him and any other upper class people that she can.


When Dr. Winterbourne finds her pilfering his mother’s jewels, he decides upon punishing her in the most scandalous of manners, unknowingly tying their fate together.

This is my first Lolita London book and I really enjoyed it. I enjoy historical romances and although this one wasn’t huge on the inaccuracies it still had a great story line and wonderful characters! I would recommend this story to anyone that enjoys this time period for a romance. I am voluntarily reviewing based on an ARC copy that was provided for free.

About Midnight Hunter

He’s hunting me, and there’s nowhere to run.

East Berlin, 1963. I thought I understood the consequences of trying to flee to the West. Death. Imprisonment without trial. Instead, I’m being hunted by the most dangerous man in the city, secret police officer Reinhardt Volker.

Now I’m his prize, no longer a traitorous factory girl but his elegant and pampered secretary. He wants to possess me, body, soul – and heart. I’ll do anything to get away from him, but first that means getting closer.

I want to feel only hatred for my captor but beneath his uniform, I discover a man with a past as scarred as Berlin’s.

And if I don’t escape him soon it will be too late.

A full-length dark romance by Brianna Hale

So this book took me out of my comfort zone with it being something I don’t normally read. This is a history(ish) kind of book. There is a lot of information when it comes to the German Wall, West, and East Germany. But while the aftermath of the Nazi’s and the war is going on some of the people on the east are trying to get over to the west. That is where our characters meet.
Reinhardt Volker is a high-ranking officer for the secret service of the east and he has done unimaginable things but he believes in what he does for himself, not for the government. But there are things he does in secret to vindicate himself that no one knows about.
When he meets Evony he finds his Valkyrie. The one person in his life that he will never let go. So he has her become his secretary and lives with him.
“If you ever get away from me, I will tear West Berlin apart looking for you. Nothing short of death would keep me from coming for you.”
The back and forth between these two is so heartbreaking for them both. The emotion is gut-wrenching that I could not put this book down. But the faith in each other also tears at your heartstrings. When they both have to option to leave each other they still stick together. That is the love you want in a love story.
I wanted to read this book just by the synopsis, but once I got into it, this is a book that will draw you in and not let go. A must read of 2018!

About Papa’s Rules:

An arranged marriage and a dark secret.
Cammie dreams of the day she will belong to a papa of her very own.
A husband to love and protect her for the rest of her days.
The dashing Lord Alexander Cavendish is everything she’s ever wanted, even if he is a strict man who doesn’t hesitate to impose proper punishment when she’s been naughty.
But can a young woman from the streets find her happily-ever-after with the powerful earl who demands her obedience?

This story is my first Sue Lyndon story, and I have to say I enjoyed it. But be warned that this a DD/lg story all the way through. This story doesn’t have a huge amount of full sex, but there is always a bit of sexualized talking all the time.
Enjoyable novella

About Papa’s Desire:

Stolen from another on her wedding day. Now she belongs to him.
Hyacinth is promised to another, but Lord Grayson cannot vanquish the young woman from his thoughts. Determined to have her for his own, he stops her wedding by force and claims her as his bride.
She’s grateful he saved her from marrying the wrong man, but Hyacinth and Lord Grayson come from different worlds. Can a former pickpocket truly find happiness with the strict handsome earl who’s determined to keep her forever?


Since I read the first Papa book from Little Ladies of Talcott House, I know what I am getting into now.

Hyacinth is now the second girl we get a story out of. She is promised to a lord. She must be a good little girl. But she meets Lord Grayson when he stops by to see why his father is sending money to the Talcott House. Needless to say, Lord Grayson is not the nicest person to her.

When Lord Grayson goes to London to find a bride he finds that he doesn’t like what he finds. He wants a woman that he can take care of, and more than that likes to be taken care of. So he goes back to the house to get Hyacinth before she marries another.

This is a DD/lg story that takes it all the way. So if you do not like that kind of thing, don’t read this book. Hyacinth isn’t always a good girl so she will get punished like a bad little girl. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

About Papa’s Gift:

He wants a biddable, obedient bride.
He gets Miss Mischief-Maker Extraordinaire.

The oh-so-serious Lord Kensington needs a wife. Through a twist of fate, he weds the most unlikely of young women–Daisy, sweet but energetic and talkative, she has irrevocably captured his heart.
He delights in teaching his new bride the pleasures of the marital bed, but when she’s naughty, he doesn’t hesitate to impose strict discipline.
Despite her tendency to get in trouble, Daisy thinks her new life with Lord Kensington is perfect–until an enemy from her past resurfaces and threatens all she holds dear.
Opposites attract and passion flares HOT in this deliciously naughty historical daddy-dom romance.

Daisy and Edward are meant to be. Although Edward was meant to marry someone else. Everything happens for a reason.

Edward was supposed to marry Hyacinth (the last book Papa’s Desire) he was running behind and Hyacinth fell for someone else. So when Edward came to pick up his betrothed, someone else was there to collect her. But Edward finds Daisy, or I should say Daisy finds Edward when she falls from the ceiling and drops on him.

From the very beginning, this book is wonderful. Every time these two authors write it gets better and better. Loved it. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

About Papa’s Captive:

His castle. His rules.
His precious little captive.

Rosie isn’t your typical reluctant bride. She has secrets. Lots of them. If her betrothed, Lord Caldwell, learns the truth about her dark past, it could spell ruin and heartbreak.
Lord Caldwell is a man who takes what he wants. Despite Rosie’s hesitation, he whisks her away to Gretna Green and his castle on the Scottish border.
As his wife, she quickly discovers she’s subject to his rules and discipline. And Lord Caldwell can be very, very firm.


I am really in love with this series. We go back to the Talcott House and find ourselves with Rosie getting her very own Papa. Rosie has a history that she is trying very desperately to hide from. But she really wants her papa. When he shows up and they run off to Gretna Green her future is set in motion.

Lord Caldwell is so ready to start his future that he takes Rosie off to Gretna Green and marries her as fast as he can. Their marriage is a match made in heaven but will it always be that way or will Rosie’s history come to bite her in the butt?

Another great story!
