ARC Reviews


A Affair Of Honor. (Rebel Hearts #2) by Heather Boyd. ARC Review.

Unneeded for command of a ship after surviving serious injury, disciplinarian Captain William Ford was ready to face society until he’s cornered by a marriage minded miss. He makes a desperate bargain with the maid who saved his life—act the part of a besotted lover in return for financial gain to drive the woman away—only to end up in a very real marriage of convenience with the maid to avoid the scandal of his own making. 

When Matilda’s plans to marry another end abruptly, she reluctantly agrees to Captain Ford’s marriage proposal to protect his sister’s marriage prospects with his assurance of an eventual annulment and independence. She soon discovers her husband’s desire to guide her with a firm hand stirs a shocking passion in her. Does she dare gift William with her secrets and heart…or admit that his desires match her own when they never intended forever?

After the death of her father Matilda Winslow has had to go into service as a maid. The one rule she knows she must keep is to stay away from the master of the house. When he returns from the war, horribly injured and on the edge of death Matilda is the only one who fights to save him.
Captain William Ford is used to being in total control of everything.  After his return from war he is unfit for duty, and has a need to reassert his natural dominance.  His father is determined to marry him off, and William is not interested in the chosen woman. He comes up with a scheme to get his own way, by bulldozing over everyone else's  objections.
This is an historical romance with a BDSM flavour. The sex scenes are not graphic, but are hot. Our hero is not a particularly nice man but he is an honourable one. He is nowhere near as confident as he wants to be. Our heroine is a little too submissive for her own good,  but that is just what our hero needs.
A very enjoyable book.

Bestselling historical author Heather Boyd believes every character she creates deserves their own happily-ever-after, no matter how much trouble she puts them through. With that goal in mind, she weaves sizzling English set love stories that push the boundaries of regency era propriety to keep readers enthralled until the wee hours of the morning. Brimming with new ideas, she frequently wishes she could type as fast as she conjures new storylines. While writing full time north of Sydney, Australia, Heather collects dust bunnies in all corners of the house and does her best to wrangle her testosterone-fuelled family into submission.
