The Countess' Lucky Charm

BWL Publishing Inc.


Saucy pickpocket Simone Dougherty relies on her nimble fingers and quick mind to work London’s streets. However, using her wits to survive in the East End is one thing. Using her wits to pose as the wife of the attractive Lord Temple Wellington is another thing altogether. Especially when her rebellious heart refuses to listen to reason. Restless and bored with the life he’s carved out for himself, younger son and black sheep Temple Wellington determines to turn over a new leaf in the wilds of Canada. Somehow he never imagined embarking on a new life would involve marriage to a fetching thief with a penchant for trouble. A thief with mysteries of her own. When Temple unexpectedly becomes the new Earl of Leavenby, will both his and Simone’s dark pasts rise up to haunt them? Or are they strong enough together to fight for their happiness?

A.M Westerling's "The Countess' Lucky Charm" is a keeper. Combine "Pygmalian" (with a happily-ever-ending), throw in a smidgeon of "Oliver Twist," add a healthy dose of love and passion, a trek through the Canadian wilderness and a host of finely drawn secondary characters, and you'll find a terrific read. Westerling paints a picture of Regency Era English values and its cruel hypocrisy to dramatize the chasm separating Simone, a charming East End pickpocket, and Temple, the younger son of a peer, into one that only true love can conquer. Minor points off for confusion arising from her misuse of courtesy titles, but in the scope of the book's overall excellence, it did not detract from my enjoyment of this story. I look forward for more from this talented author.

Her Proper Scoundrel

BWL Publishing Inc.


Threatened with an unwanted marriage, Lady Josceline Woodsby escapes London to take a position as a country governess. When she discovers the job is no longer available, Josceline vows she will do anything to avoid returning to her previously dismal life - even if it means coercing the ruthless Captain Sharrington into providing her with employment. Spurned by a father he never knew and sent off to sea at a very young age, Christopher Sharrington leaves a promising naval career determined to make his own mark on society as owner of a shipping enterprise. The only problem is, hiring the alluring Lady Woodsby as governess for children he doesn’t even have, is definitely not part of his future plans. Josceline soon realizes Christopher is under the mistaken impression her social connections will help him attain his dream. Will he cast her out when he determines she is more a hindrance than a help? And what of the devastating secret he harbors? Will it destroy any chance they have of building a future together?

I enjoyed this book immensely. The single thing that impressed me most was the dialog. I have read previous historical novels where the author seemed to have no grasp on the language spoken during the featured time period. This was not the case with this beautifully written book. The author made the conversations within these pages come alive. I found there was a perfect balance of humor and romance to make for an exciting and pleasant read.

Banished from his homeland for a crime he didn’t commit, Thorvald Stronghawk knows selling the Frisian beauty he’s captured will bring him the blood money needed to regain his good name. When the man who accused Thorvald of the crime is the one buying Gisela, Thorvald must decide what he wants more: To recover his reputation among his fellow countrymen, or tame the woman who has vowed to hate him forever for destroying her home and family. Gisela of Falkenstead realizes the handsome, self assured Viking views her as nothing more than chattel to be bought and sold rather than a woman with a life and mind of her own. Although her head tells her to escape the man she thinks is nothing more than a savage murderer, her heart has other ideas.

This is the first book I read of hers and I couldn't put it down. I read all night and loved every second of it. It is beautifully written. IT was passion filled, heart stopping, deeply emotional, engrossing story. A masterfully written story that the characters just leaped off of the pages.
