Welcome ReadersMy name is Cyn and each week we (me and my BFF Ann from Romancing the Readers) blog all about books and book related topics on something we call Book Club Thursday(BCT). Learn more about me and BCT here
Our feature today is:
Today we are taking a look back at an old favorite:
Abandoned by a cruel fate, lovely Dougless Montgomery lies weeping upon a cold tombstone in an English church. Suddenly, the most extraordinary man appears. It is Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck...and according to his tombstone he died in 1564.
Drawn to his side by a bond so sudden and compelling it overshadows reason, Dougless knows that Nicholas is nothing less than a miracle: a man who does not seek to change her, who finds her perfect, fascinating, just as she is. What Dougless never imagined was how strong the chains are that tie them to the past...or the grand adventure that lay before them.
I'll refer to this title as AKISA in my post
Ms Deveraux is one of the first adult romance authors I read when I was a tween/teen. And she grew to be one of my favorites.
But now, as an adult, and over the years, I haven't read her much. I did read and LOVED The Girl from Summer Hill and to be frank, I'm still waiting for the next book in that series. That's because next to Ms Deveraux's knights, including AKISA and the book Wishes it is one of my favorites.
In fact when I was with Ann at a RT Book Convention years ago, I got a signed copy of AKISA.
I am also looking forward to the up-coming A Willing Murder (out 9/18) but fair warning, it's billed as a mystery.
However, I've gone off topic(big surprise as I often do-LOL).
One of the things I love most about the book is how romantic it is and the subtle humor and great characters.
AKISA in the original printing did not have the same ending as it does now. In the later/updated edition Ms Deveraux changed a few things... but you'll need to your own updated read OR read it for the first time yourself to see!
