Blurb-
Will he secure his future by ruining hers, or will she ruin his plans by securing him? A new twist on the old fortune hunter plot puts an impoverished earl in a position to gain his fortune only by ruining an innocent's reputation without offering marriage. The innocent he's selected, however, has no plans to settle for anything less than marriage and will go to almost any length to secure him.


When the impoverished Andrew Black, Earl of Townson, hits rock bottom, he makes an agreement that will end his eight year poverty streak once and for all. In order to gain his fortune he must do but one simple thing: ruin an innocent girl’s reputation enough to make her flee to America.

Brooke Banks isn’t interested in marriage, or so she thinks. She came to London to have a good time, and that’s exactly what she’s doing. Widely known for her tendency to flout the rules, she suspects nothing when a handsome stranger appears on her doorstep.


Thirteen days, a handful of kisses and one scandalous situation later, Andrew and Brooke will have to choose to stick to their original plans, or decide if a life together is worth the risk.


***This is a full-length novel, approx. 100,000 words.

Tifferz Take-
First off this is my first but not my last book by Rose Gordon! I adore the cover. I think it is perfect and would by the book just by the cover. This is a fun and entertaining story. I love how stubborn and sassy Brooke is. Oh the things this girl does. I enjoyed watching her push the limits with everyone! I liked how Andrew got himself into a pickle or two! It was great watching him figure out how to fix it. The flow and character development was great. The only thing is I still had a few questions at the end. I hope that in book two we see how Andrew and Brooke are doing and I am sure I will get my answers.
If you like regency romance pick this book up. Clean language. This does contain detailed consummation of a marriage. If you do not care for that it is easily to skip it. I do love that this is not your typical regency romance and that they are married before they are intimate. Thanks Rose for an escape on a rainy day! I hope you all enjoy this read! This is a three book series about three sisters. The best thing is all the books are out so no waiting!!!

This was an arc.

Blurb-
Liberty Banks loves revenge almost as much as she hates one Mister Paul Grimes, who, she considers to be the most improper creature she has ever clapped eyes upon. But when her plans for revenge against Paul go bust, she suddenly finds herself walking down the aisle to him.

Once married, a battle of the wills breaks out as each tries to reform the other. Liberty wants nothing more than to have a proper husband. Much to Liberty’s dismay, Paul will stop at nothing to have is all too proper wife do something--anything--to break the rules of society, specifically do the most improper thing which is to fall in love with the most improper man: her own husband.

Tifferz Take-
I absolutely can't take my eyes of this cover. I think it is so pretty! I can't wait to see the next one. It seems like each cover gets better than the last. Okay on with the review. I have a lot of respect for Liberty and all her reasons for being proper. But I enjoyed watching her cut loose. This is a fun story and had me hooked from the beginning. The answers I was looking for from book 1 were answered and it was great catching up with Brooke and Andrew from book 1. I like the Banks family the more I read about them. I enjoyed seeing Paul stoke Liberty's temper! Oh the things they do to each other! One my favorite part of the book was when Liberty's mom and sister Brooke explain what to expect from her wedding night. I was cracking up laughing.This book has a detailed description of the consummation of the marriage. This is easy to skip if you don't care for it.

Blurb-
Not to be outdone by her sisters' marriage-producing scandals, quiet and withdrawn Madison Banks quickly finds herself walking down the aisle to a man who has secretly loved her for years.

Her groom, however, has no idea how to show his new bride that he truly loves her and following a bungled wedding night, finds himself in a position to either win his wife once and for all or lose her forever.

Can he prove himself worthy of her? Will she accept his love? Or will jealousy and past insecurities tear the pair apart?

Tifferz Take-
I am loving Ms. Gordon's book covers so far and that includes this one. Love it! Okay on with the book. I felt for Madison. She has had to live with the consequences of her actions. Madison has secrets from her husband and it is partly due to trust issues. I enjoyed watching Madison's husband assume things. Typical man.It was great to see Madison learn to trust and heal from her past. This story touches on some heartache. But it has it's funny moments as well. I was cracking up when Madison's husband carries her out of the house to the carriage without her shoes. This book does contain a few swear words and a detailed description of the consummation of the marriage. If you don't care for that it is easily skimmed or skipped. This is a great ending to the series. These books also could stand alone. If you like regency pick this up!

Blurb-
The overly scientific, always respectable, and socially awkward Alexander Banks has just been informed his name resides on a betrothal agreement right above the name of the worst chit in all of England. With a loophole that allows him to marry another without consequence before the thirtieth anniversary of his birth, he has only four weeks to find another woman and make her his wife. Being the logical scientist he is, Alex decides to take his friend's advice and treat his quest for a bride just like a science experiment...

Caroline Sinclair is still trying to scrape her jaw off the floor after hearing her cousin, Lady Olivia’s, latest announcement when the object of their conversation, Alex Banks, Olivia’s intended, arrives for what Caroline assumes is a bout of drawing room chitchat with his betrothed. But when an experiment is mentioned, Caroline, who cannot resist a science experiment any more than she can deny her lungs air, volunteers to help before she even knows what his latest experiment is!

Tifferz Take-

First off the cover is perfect for this story! This story is a continuation of the Scandalous Sisters. Alex Banks is their cousin who we meet in the other books. We get to catch up with family from the first three books and meet some new friends that I think will be in the next books. The earlier books will give you a taste of Olivia as well, she is a piece of work! I think the combination of Alex and Caroline is refreshing and it works! I enjoyed watching them grow as a couple and overcome difficult things. This does contain descriptive sex after marriage. I look forward to reading the next three books in this series. I always enjoy a good family series. It is so fun to see how things are going for couples and families. This book can also stand alone.

Blurb-
For the past thirteen years Lord Marcus Sinclair, Earl Sinclair, has lived his life as a heavily scarred recluse, never dreaming the only woman he’s ever wanted would love him back. But when it slips out that she does, he doubts her love for his scarred body and past can be real. For truly, how can a woman love a man whose injuries were caused when he once tried to declare himself to her sister?

Tifferz Take-
Okay this is the second book in the Groom series by Rose Gordon. This is a series and is more fun to read them that way. But I think they do stand alone quiet nicely. It's a win win. I really like Emma. She is so sweet yet very stubborn. Marcus is a recluse with good reason and I think is more stubborn than Emma. I even got worried towards the end of this book because they were both so stubborn.I even shed a few tears. This book also has it's laugh out loud moments as well. I liked the plot and flow of the book. This does contain a detailed description of the consummation of a marriage. If you do not care for that it is easily skimmed or skipped. I look forward to the next two books in this series!! I hope that Ms. Gordon has many more stories to be told as she has a knack for it.

Blurb-
Widower Lord Patrick Ramsey, Viscount Drakely, fell in love and married at eighteen only to be devastated by losing her as she bore his third daughter. Now, as his girls are getting older he realizes they need a mother—and a governess. Not able to decide between the two which they need more, he marries an ordinary young lady from the local village in hopes she can suit both roles. But this ordinary young lady isn’t so ordinary after all, and he’ll either have to take a chance and risk his heart once more or wind up alone forever.

Tifferz Take-
This is the third book in the groom series and it was a wonderful read. I was laughing at Viscount Deakely at some pretty hefty mistakes he made. Sometimes I think that he thought things through but really didn't. I liked how Juliet can hold her own. I liked the banter between the two. Viscount Drakely's girls are fun kids and some of the things they say, will have you laughing out loud. I liked how Drakely had to over come some issues he had and once he learned to communicate things smoothed out. I did feel towards the middle of the book that the kids needed to be mentioned more. The book does have a sex after marriage. I am looking forward to the fourth and last book in the series. I do know that Ms. Gordan does have plans to write more. Thanks for another story. I feel that this book stands alone nicely.
