STORY-LINE RUINED AND REDEEMED BY BREE WOLF:

Lady Charlotte Frampton and Viscount Sebastian Campbell, future Earl of Weston, have starring roles in author Bree Wolf‘s Ruined and Redeemed.  Charlotte had everything a young girl could want;  loving parents and a bright future.  However, one disastrous night ruined any chance she had at happiness and changed Charlotte into a monstrous imitation of herself;  doing awful deeds she never expected herself capable.  After heinous events, Charlotte changes her name to Lotte and becomes a companion to Lord Ashwood’s sister.

Sebastian Campbell returning from a tour of the continent, finds his sister wed to a monster;  given in marriage for greed and social position, his father will pay for what he has done.  Angry and undone, Sebastian travels to Lord Ashwood’s;  where he meets Charlotte/Lotte.  Sebastian decides to hurt his father in the worse way possible.  He knows marrying Lottie will reap the repercussions against his father he so desires.  As a lowly companion, with no social standing or breeding, he hopes this will be the death of his father.

But life never runs as smoothly as we plan and Sebastian finds his vengeance must take a back seat to protecting his sister, Victoria, from the monster his father wed her.  Lotte’s past is not as far in the past as she would wish;  it comes to haunt her once again.  Can a marriage beginning under such circumstances stand a chance?  Will adversity bring them closer together or tear them further apart.  My historical Regency romance book reviews of Ruined And Redeemed follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Author Bree Wolf created an intensely emotional book in Ruined and Redeemed.  I don’t think I have ever felt so sorry for anyone as I did Charlotte.  From Wolf‘s vivid writing, I felt Charlotte’s guilt, pain, fear, and absolute devastationWolf‘s insightful story-line revealed the harm emotional and physical trauma can cause to our mental health; resulting in the person becoming someone they do not recognize as them-self.  As Bree Wolf developed Charlotte’s character, I found myself in tears.  How could anyone live through all Charlotte survived and ever be the same again?  As Wolf brought Charlotte from the abyss she had lived in for three years, she is like the Phoenix rising from the ashes; maturing her from a soul shattered replica of living to a woman of value.  Will Charlotte find redemption?

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Reunited In Danger grabbed me from the beginning of the book and did not let go until the last page.  A fast paced tale of vengeance, murder, and secrets, author Carol J. Post crafted a first class story filled with mystery and suspense.  I could relate to their immature behavior, as we all were immature in our teen years of high school.  Post highlights the repercussions of immature behavior with the resulting damage and repercussions which occur.

I found the suspense and mystery addictive as I became involved in the story-line. Then, I found myself asking:  who’s going to be next and what happened on that night long ago?  Post kept the identity of the murderer and secrets close to her chest and did not reveal either until absolutely necessary to the story-line.  What event set the murderer on a trail of vengeance?  Wondering if Amber’s involved and praying not, I impatiently clicked my E reader screen, reading this book straight through as I had to know the answers.

STORY-LINE THE VENGEFUL GROOM BY MISTY SHAE:

In The Vengeful Groom we find Thomas Engelberg and Caroline Saget.  Caroline, daughter to Ryan Saget, who ruined many fine men and their businesses with his dishonest business deals.  Having nothing but mean and rude comments for Carolina when he’s not ignoring her, he’s a sad excuse for a father.  Caroline seeks a way out of her torment.  Placing a mail order bride ad, she wants to go west.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Oh my, what a short story Shae created.  Although short stories and novellas can not develop the characters or story-line in the depth of the their parent, the novel, Shae packed this short story with emotion.  I felt so sorry for Caroline I almost cried. Living a life of subjugation, discouragement, and belittling, she thought she had found her knight in shining armor. However, Caroline finds continuation of her earlier life.  Carolina never lost her faith in God’s goodness;  praying for Thomas daily.  Hoping for her happy ever after dream to come true.
