We have Lady Clara who decides that she needs to cuckold her vile fiancée, and makes him believe she's with child from another man. Vile fiancée believes her, and disgraces her. Now she needs to run up north where she will be safe from ridicule of the Ton. Her whole family believes she's pregnant, and they are trying to figure out who to marry her off. All Clara wanted was peaceful life in Scotland, and be the amazing aunt everyone wants. Marcus has other plans for her, and he finds the perfect gent for the part, Laird Hunt MacLarin.
Hunt believes that his family is cursed. Each of the previous Laird MacLarin never saw the birth of their babes, so he has decided to never get marry or have bairns. He has a sweet deal going on with barren widow, why mess it up. However, he gets an opportunity to be a father without being the natural father to Lady Clare's bairn. Actually pretty ingenious, except for the fact she's not pregnant.
This is where the story gets interesting. Boy does some crazy stuff happen, and due to a curse. There could have been a curse, but some of things could be explain through logic. However, logic does take a backseat in this story, because we have a CURSE. It's interesting how they break the curse. I'm still not sure on that, but he it was a pretty good read. If you are looking for cursed fellow, and fake pregnancy, you don't have look to far with This Scot of Mine. Honesty I couldn't put it down. I needed to know if he lives or dies. It was a pretty fun read, and I felt bad for Lady Clara.

Take Two by Suzanne Enoch
We have Eleanor Ross and Brian MacCafferty in this story. They use to have a relationship, and now they have a working one. Okay, not really. This story was adorable, and a quick listen. They had a lot to work on to repair all aspects of their lives. It's nice little pick me up story.
Pasties and Poor Decisions by Molly Harper
We have Anastasia Villers and Ned Fitzroy. In this story Anastasia hits rock bottom, and needs to come crawling home. She never thought that her coming would be a welcoming one, but it wasn't what she expected. Ned and Anastasia use to have a relationship until she ghosted him. Need some patching up with these. Honestly, this story could have been a full on novel, because there's potential to make it longer. However, it was a cute listen.
Last Chance Motel by Karen Hawkins
This was a super cute story. We have Evan and Jessica Graham. They have an extremely rocky relationship. It was so bad that Jessica left Evan and sent him divorce papers. Evan tries to win back Jessica, but has an uphill battle. Overall, it was a cute story.
Overall, these stories were cute. They all could have been made the stories a full fledge novels, but it was good to have something quick to listen. Also, they were heart-warming, and gave fuzzy feelings at the end.

Let us take a trip to Runaway Mountain, Tennessee where we will meet Tess Hartsong who is a young widow who wanted to runaway from her pain. Next we meet Ian North a tortured artist, and Bianca. SEP makes an interesting trio in this story. Of course they live in area that is a little small minded. We have Tess's tragic backstory, but we learn more about her marriage as the story goes on. Here is a slight spoiler another tragedy is introduce in the story. I understand why it was introduced, and it helps the characters grow. Along with tragedy more things pop up.
If you are willing to get wrapped up in the pain in the story, you are going to need some tissue. After all Tess does go through some struggles in Runaway Mountain, but she comes out stronger in the end. She eventually finds her way home. Dance Away with Me was a wonderful read. Heart-warming, but a few bumps in the road. If you are willing to take a chance with this story, you might be surprise with the story.

I really enjoyed this story, but I'm going to advise that you read these stories in order and not go the route I did which is going backwards. I mean the Duke of Dunncraigh is a pretty shady guy and you will see this in previous stories. I did enjoy that Callum and Rebecca eventually work together. However, Callum has some serious disbelief that Rebecca was on the up and up, and was in the same league as Dunncraigh. Rebecca's daughter is ADORABLE in this story. She kind of makes the story. I would reread this story because of the daughter. Feisty would best describe her. Overall, a really good read.

Oh my heavens. Usually I love hero, but I thought he was pompous and arrogant. That's being nice. I would choose other words, but it might get sensory. However, I LOVED Irene. She opinionated, and trying to fight the rights of women. Suffragist, such a dirty word to the old way of thinking. However, the world needs more people like Irene. In the story we see to ideologies clashing, because we have old way of thinking, and merging forward thinking. This causes conflict in the story, that makes you wonder if Henry (the Duke of Torquil) and Irene to see eye to eye. Also Henry battles with tradition, and that love can't be part of the picture. Laure Lee Guhrke does an amazing job with this time period, because this is the era where we have a lot of change. Sometimes I find that she might move a little slow; however, Irene is such a spitfire that you can't find it slowly. She's ready to start punching out the door, and Henry is willing to give her a fight. Overall, The Truth About Love and Dukes was pretty good read.
