When Alexander Westcott becomes the new Earl of Riverdale, he inherits a title he never wanted and a failing country estate he can’t afford. But he fully intends to do everything in his power to undo years of neglect and give the people who depend on him a better life. . . .

A recluse for more than twenty years, Wren Heyden wants one thing out of life: marriage. With her vast fortune, she sets her sights on buying a husband. But when she makes the desperate—and oh-so-dashing—earl a startlingly unexpected proposal, Alex will only agree to a proper courtship, hoping for at least friendship and respect to develop between them. He is totally unprepared for the desire that overwhelms him when Wren finally lifts the veils that hide the secrets of her past. .

 

 

 

 

Always the story weaver Balogh does a fantastic job of creating a Cinderella love story with the adage of Alex's journey.

I liked the process of the h/h learning to love instead of the insta-love even with the attraction including the reasons they married to begin with.

These historicals Balogh writes are a relief from many other genres because its not always the instant swoon, instant love, instant everything without a single thought to creating a foundation for its main couple. If Wren and Alex had been all over it from the get go I don't think I would have stuck along for the rest of the book but Balogh didn't fail me.

I love the cover art, I love the story and the characters Balogh creates in Someone to Wed there are just a few things that kept me from completely falling in love that I felt were more of a me thing rather than an issue in the book which kept me rating it with more stars however that doesn't take from how much I enjoyed the rest of it.

Love the Westcotts.

 

Until next time book lovers...

Deja New (Insighter #2) by MaryJanice Davidson

Leah Nazir lives in a world where the past can and will come back to bite you in the ass. No, not teething ghosts—reincarnation! As an Insighter, it’s Leah’s job to delve into the murky and (often) deadly former lives of her patients. And she knows a thing or two about danger after killing her mother’s murderer with the help of new beau, Archer Drake.

Isn’t he the best?

Now, it’s time to take their relationship to the next level, but not in any way Leah could have predicted. She and Archer head to Chicago to meet his parents—and try to figure out why Archer’s dad killed his brother decades ago. When someone tries to sabotage their investigation, Leah must decide if the Drake family past is a deal breaker…

 

 

 

 

 

I appreciated the second installment to this series more than the first because I felt like there was more depth this time around verses what we got in the first book however that depth also caused quite a bit of confusion as well. The past verse present lay over dialogue was a tad complex for me as the reader as well as poor Leah.

I still enjoy the new concept as the whole reincarnation thing isn't often used in romance I would like to see more of it in the future.

Confusion aside I felt Davidson did a much better job bringing the reader in this time around, making it worth a revisit to this series. My interest in the third installment is also piqued.
