But first --

For this hop, we were tasked to feature at least one book and talk about why we love it.


Her Ladyship's Companion by Evangeline Collins

Blurb:

A debut novel of erotic intensity set in the Regency era.

In the Scottish countryside of Selkirk, Lady Isabella Stirling resides at Bowhill Park, serving penance for a sin that nearly ruined her family. For five years she has been condemned to a loveless marriage and confined to the estate where she does little more than tend her rose garden. With her husband absent for months at a time and few visitors, Bella lives a lonely existence, denying the passions that burn within her very soul.

Then her cousin comes for a visit and makes an outrageous suggestion: what Bella needs is a lover. A hired lover. Despite her need, Bella says no. But soon Mr. Gideon Rosedale arrives -- and he is at her service for two weeks. Indulging in what she intends to be a harmless flirtation, Bella is overcome by Gideon's intoxicating presence. And when she at last permits him to satisfy her desires, she discovers she's done the unthinkable -- she's fallen in love.

Why I loved this book:

I read this book long before I started my blog, when I kept all my review notes in a notebook. Here's what I wrote about this novel: (My notebook was the Moleskine Book Journal and I gave Collins's Her Ladyship Companion the full five stars and added three exclamation points. ^_^)

Oh My God! This was one of the most beautiful stories I've read!

Bella and Gideon are both scarred and imperfect -- but they are perfect together. The tug between business and pleasure provided such tangible tension between the lady and the man she has paid for.

Evangeline Collins does not shy away from characters in a difficult situation. Her other book, Seven Nights to Forever features a woman who prostitutes herself one week each month to provide for herself and her younger brother.

She's a remarkable storyteller and I want to read more!

Evangeline Collins last published a book in 2010 (Seven Nights to Forever) -- her website hasn't been updated but I'm still waiting, and hoping that she publishes another romance novel -- hopefully soon!
