Surrender to the Highlander

Lynsay Sands' historical and paranormal romance series are a great mix of humor and hot romance. Surrender to the Highlander is the fifth book in Lynsay Sands' Scottish Highlander Series, but each book is a standalone and you do not need to read the previous before picking up this one. Surrender to the Highlander is Neil Buchanan and Edith's story. Neil is one of Siadh's many brothers and Edith is one of her close friends. Their story had a mystery, some humor and some steamy romance. I highly recommend this series for historical romance lovers looking for hot Scottish romances. They're addicting! *JK*

I Ever I Should Love You

Cathy Maxwell has a talent for breaking a heart in the sweetest of ways. Leonie is stuck in the past, reliving her mistakes and punishing herself for them. It's hard to like her, but in time you will understand her. Roman was never meant to be a hero, but he ended up being a twofold one. He had the courage to listen to his heart and pursue the one woman he had to work the hardest for and the foresight to empathize and help mend at time callous, but brutally broken heart. If Ever I Should Love You may run hot and cold, but it appeals to what makes us human.

If you're looking for something a little different, with real-life issues, flawed yet resilient characters, deep emotion, and a happy ending, give this a try. *JK*

The Right Kind of Rogue by Valerie Bowman was an excellent historical romance with a scheming matchmaker, love interests on opposite sides of feuding families and a wallflower who really comes into her own.

Meg Timmons has been in love with her best friend's brother, Hart Highgate, since she was sixteen years old. Now that Hart has decided it's time he marry, Meg knows this may be her last chance. However, her quest for love is hindered by the fact she has no dowry and her and Hart's family have been feuding for years. Hart had always thought of Meg as his little sister's best friend, but after a surprise encounter late at night, Hart hasn't been able to get Meg out of his head. Soon, Meg and Hart are caught up in the schemes of a matchmaker and will have to decide what they're willing to do for the chance at the love of a lifetime. *JK*
