STORY-LINE LADY LIKES THE LORD BY ELEANOR MEYERS:

Maria Kay takes starring role in Lady Likes The Lord.  Known as the good sister, Maria has secrets.  If only the Ton knew the real Maria.  Finally deciding to take a husband, Maria sets her sights on Cole Leverton, Lord Marion; Cole has loved Maria for years.  Now the time is right and she’s ready to break the Kay-Abbey curse.  She refuses to follow her sisters and marry an Abbey, especially Edmund.

Edmund does not want love and refuses to fall under its spell as his brothers did.  However, he will have Maria, she is his and he intents to make her his wife.  But fate has much in store for Maria and Edmund.  Adventure, action, romance, and secrets swirling around Regency London, awaits the reader in Lady Likes The Lord.  My Regency romance book reviews follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:

Set in 1832, Regency England, Meyers latest addition to the Abbey Brothers Series, Lady Likes The Lord, grabbed me immediately.  With Meyers vivid descriptions, I could see the fancy ballrooms and all the Ton dressed to impress. As well as, see the back street taverns including the low life and criminal elements, almost smell the horse-flesh, and felt Edmund’s frustration.  The criminal element Meyers crafted for Lady Likes The Lord, made my skin crawl.  A truly evil man without conscience or a sense of right and wrong.  Filling her tale with emotion, action, and secrets, I read this book straight through as I could not put it down. I was back with old friends from the earlier books, learning the latest in their lives, and loving every minute spent with them.  I love books with recurring characters;  the Kay sisters and the Abbey brothers never fail to entertain.

LOOKING GLASS LIES

“Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes.  Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit.  1 Peter 3:3-4

 

STORY-LINE LOOKING GLASS LIES BY VARINA DENMAN:

Looking Glass Lies by author Varina Denman will rip out your heart.  An intense look into today’s society filled with warped values, self-destruction, and deception.  I could not put this book down.

Cecily Ross, divorced from her mentally abuse husband, returns home to Canyon, Texas hoping to find peace and a way to fix herself.  Thinking she never met the beauty standards the media sells women, Cecily has a wealth of self-confidence and emotional issues.  Returning homes supposed to help her center and heal emotionally;  things do not always work out as we hope. However, with her father at her back, a support group led by an awesome woman, an old friend at her side, and maybe a little romance, Cecily may just change her life.   Come with Cecily and friends on their journey of revelation and renewal.   My reviews for psychological woman’s romance fiction novel, Looking Glass Lies, follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Talk about an emotional roller coaster; Looking Glass Lies has it in spades.  Filled with drama, emotional turmoil, self-destructive behavior, and the jaundice view the media gives women of themselves, Looking Glass Lies grabs the reader immediately and never let’s go.  Every woman who has ever looked in the mirror and seen ugly, imperfection, or compared herself to the latest stick thin model, should read this novel.  Denman faces these issues head-on and takes off running.  She masterfully impresses on the reader to see their true self;  stop listening to the media who’s only interested in
