Rendezvous With A Romance

I love paranormal and historical romance novels. I love talking about books and finding out about new authors and books to read. I also love supporting and promoting my favorite authors.

Hard Breaker: A Beauty and Beast Novel (Gargoyles Series)
Christine Warren
Thomas: The Jaded Gentlemen Book 1 by Grace Burrowes (2-Jun-2015) Paperback - Grace Burrowes

This was an enjoyable read.  I liked Thomas Jennings in David and I am glad his book came right after David's.  Loris is a strong yet vulnerable young woman in a position only men are supposed to fill and she is holding her own. Thomas is intrigued by this independent woman that was abandoned by her father two years ago.  He sees that his loss (whether by death or simply by running off) guides all of her decisions and her drive to work hard and succeed.  She feels like she has something to prove, and maybe she does.  No one thinks a woman can be a land steward and she is determined to prove everyone wrong.  During their story, they have stolen moments of passion (love the scene in the rain outside her cottage, talk about 'Damn hot!'). Surprises, of course, come up; Thomas is determined to make Loris is Baroness, and Loris is determined to protect him from her father and scandal. Their love story was sweet, not too emotionally straining, not a lot of turmoil that pulls at your heart strings, but an enjoyable read all around.
