Triumph and Treasure by Collette Cameron ~ My Review

Triumph and Treasure by Collette Cameron 

Series: Highland Heather Romancing a Scot Series, #1 
Publication Date: December 3rd, 2014 
Publisher: Soul Mate Publishing 
Pages: 279 
Received: E-copy from the author. 
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I loved Triumph and Treasure! As always, Collette Cameron delivers a fast-paced, action-packed, Regency romance novel with many twists and turns! 

Only hours after getting married, Angelina learns the man she married is not whom he says he is, not only that, but he’s already married! Angry, embarrassed and utterly ruined, Lina cannot go home! Boarding a ship, she leaves Massachusetts and sails to England for a lengthy visit with her Aunt Camille and Uncle Ambrose, the Duke of Waterford. Vowing never to trust a man again!

But while in England, Lina finds her uncle has other plans for her. The Duke is not happy with Lina’s situation, and, through devious ways, finds a new husband for her. 

Flynn, the Earl of Luxmoore, is being blackmailed by the Duke of Waterford to marry his niece. Before his death, Flynn’s father gambled and lost the family fortune to the Duke. Now Flynn is responsible for his father’s debt. The Duke offers Flynn two choices, marry Lina and the debt would be forgiven or have no way to support his ailing mother, invalid sister, and elderly grandmother. Flynn is desperately trying to find another way out of this mess...until he meets Lina. There is something about her that tugs at his heart, and he quickly feels the need to protect her too.  

I love Ms. Cameron’s characters! The chemistry and sexual tension between Flynn and Lina are wonderful! I love how caring and loyal Flynn is, not only with Lina, but with his mom, sister, and grandmother.  

I also love how Ms. Cameron has threaded characters from her previous stories into this one. For example, Flynn is related to the Craiglocky Clan, from the Castle Brides series. 

After being fooled by a man whom she thought she loved, Lina begins making a mental list of rules to avoid falling into a trap like that again.  I got a kick out of all of her rules. Some of them had me chuckling!  

I really enjoyed Triumph and Treasure! The first in the Highland Heather Romancing a Scot Series, and I look forward to reading the next!

What are you Reading? ~ Jan. 21, 2015

What are you Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by me! If you'd like to join me, answer the following questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you'll be reading next?

Due to illness and the Bloggiesta I didn't get any reading done this week. So, my answers are pretty much going to be the same. Except the last, that will be different. :)

What am I currently reading?  I am still reading The Vagabond Vicar by Charlotte Brentwood. So far it's very good!

What did I recently finish reading? I finished reading Take Me On (Pushing the Limits) by Katie McGarry. I loved it! This is the fourth in the series.

What do I think I'll be reading next? Next I should read The Secret of Pembrooke Park by Julie Klassen. This one looks really good! I am looking forward to reading it. I was hoping to break up the two Regency's with something different, but as I have a deadline to review this book, I thought I'd better get to it!

2015 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

This year I wanted to continue to whittle down my TBR pile, the challenge I joined last year closed their sign-ups already, so I made my own! ;) If you would like to join me feel free!

I'm also doing the Austenesque Lover TBR Reading Challenge and the Dystopia Reading Challenge. I want to keep all these challenges separate. So, if I read an Austenesque novel, I will only count it in the Austenesque challenge, not both my TBR pile and Austenesque Lovers Challenge. 

Only books published in 2014 or earlier will be accepted in this challenge. No new books will count.

My goal for this year is to read 12 books. That's one book a month. That's one more than last year. 

I will post a list of completed books read on my 2015 Reading Challenge page.

Wish me luck! ;)

Are you doing any challenges this year?

Dystopia Reading Challenge 2015

Okay, I'm going to do this challenge again, because I loved it! And I still have so many left Dystopia/Post-Apocalyptic books on my shelf to read!  

The Dystopia Reading Challenge 2015 is hosted by Blog of Erised. Head over there if you would like to join the fun!   

The level I'm going for is Rebel - level 2 (7 to 12 books) again this year. 

I'm going to begin with:

Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton
Legend by Marie Lu
Prodigy (Legend, #2) by Marie Lu
Champion (Legend, #3) by Marie Lu

I'm going to start with this list and try to update it as I read them. I will also add books to my completed list on my 2015 Reading Challenge page.

Happy Reading!!
