From Governess to Countess

I’ve been looking forward to Marguerite Kaye’s new, four-book Matches Made in Scandal series, as each story is set in a different European city. While I certainly don’t object to historical romances set in the UK, I am always keen to venture elsewhere, and was definitely enticed by the thought ...

Scandal at the Christmas Ball

Scandal at the Christmas Ball is a connected duology set at the Duke of Brockmore’s Christmas house party. He and his wife are known for matchmaking, so all four of our leads enter their stories with wary eyes. They will never marry (shall we all grin cheekily at them together, readers?) and they ...

Claiming His Desert Princess

Claiming His Desert Princess is the final book in Marguerite Kaye’s Hot Arabian Nights quartet of historical romances set in Arabia in the early 1800s.  Contemporary romances abound with gorgeous sheikh heroes, but they’re not so often found in historicals, and neither are there that many regen ...

The Harlot and the Sheikh

I love stories set in other countries. A big part of this probably has to do with my love of travel - I grew up with parents far more interested in navigating a city where no one speaks English than in spending a day at the beach. Since most historical romance novels are set in England, sometimes co ...

Sheikh's Mail Order Bride

Today, AAR reviewers Maggie Boyd and Caz Owens discuss The Sheikh’s Mail Order Bride, the second book in Marguerite Kaye’s Hot Arabian Nights series. Here is Maggie’s summary of the novel: Constance Montgomery is a dutiful daughter. When her family encounters severe financial trouble, sh ...

Scandal at the Midsummer Ball

These stories from two of my favourite Harlequin/Mills and Boon Historical authors take place at a house-party renowned as much for the matchmaking and political deals struck under its roof as it is for the excellence of its food and the high quality of the entertainment provided. The stories run c ...

The Widow and the Sheikh

I love stories about Arabia. The historical Middle East is, to me, a land of fairy tale and passion. Given the sheer volume of romances containing the word “Sheikh” in the title I think I can safely say I am not alone. Julia Trevelyan awakens from a drugged sleep to find herself in quite the ...

Rumours that Ruined a Lady

Marguerite Kaye is someone I know can always be relied upon to deliver a well-written, character-driven romance that plays out against an interesting and well-researched historical background. The fact that she can do all that so very well in under three hundred pages never ceases to amaze me; and t ...

The Soldier's Rebel Lover

The second book in Marguerite Kaye’s Companions in Arms duo, The Soldier’s Rebel Lover is a worthy companion piece to the equally good The Soldier’s Dark Secret, and like that book, takes a thoughtful look at the after-effects of war on those who fought and what happens to them when war is ove ...

The Soldier’s Dark Secret

Whenever I pick up a book by Marguerite Kaye, I know I’m going to get a well-crafted, character driven story with a slightly different focus to that found in the average historical romance - and The Soldier’s Dark Secret is exactly that. Touching and very readable, the story focuses on two emo ...
