About the Author: Natasha Lockhart

Natasha Lockhart is the pen name for a former primary school teacher After completing eleven years as an educator, she decided to pursue her dream of being a writer Her love of historical novels began in fourth grade when she was introduced to the books of Laura Ingalls Wilder Since then, Natasha has been time travelling through literature and enjoying every minute of it Her obsession with romance novels came years later after a couple of less than satisfying relationships Books detailing the happily ever afters of fictional characters were like an oasis in the desert during her single years Natasha is now happily married and the mother of two precocious daughters and one laid back son When she s not writing or tending to her husband s demands, she works as an on call chauffeur, personal assistant, and cheerleader for her three children I ve heard it said by a few Goodreads members that authors should not review booksthat it s somehow a conflict of interest I respectfully disagree I was a reader long before I sat in front of my laptop to pen a story On the one hand, I can see how getting a negative review from a bestselling author could crush a newbie or a less successful author It is therefore good that the overwhelming majority of the chart toppers don t write book reviews Oh, we ve all seen endorsement quotes on book covers to help a fellow writer sell a book I m not talking about that I m talking about a regular review on Goodreads orOn the other hand, I believe anyone who purchases a book has the right to express their opinions about that book Anyone who puts themselves out there in the public eye should be prepared to handle criticism and praise Having said that, since I read farbooks each year than I write, I will continue to review books I respect the hard work of each author whose work I read I am never critical to be malicious If I don t like something, I just don t like it If I enjoy something, I praise it Should the day ever come that I feel my success warrants my stepping back from writing book reviews, I will do that Until thenHere s my simple system for rating books Five stars Perfection A Masterpiece All the boxes in my What Constitutes a Good Book list were checked off Very rarely do I come across a five star book It s hard as hell to create something that s so masterfully written it will wow an avid reader In my opinion, less than 10% of writers fall in this category Only a handful of authors in my favorite genre, Romance, ever manage to hit this mark Most of us have learned the hard way that just because an author writes one amazing book does not necessarily mean the books that follow it will be just as good I think five star ratings are given out too freely Just my opinion Feel free to disagree Four starsReally good With a few tweaks, it would be damn near perfect I want to readfrom this author Three starsGood story I loved the premise, but something failed in the execution One or both of the main characters were unlikable Instalove Get out of here Instalust Not cool unless the book is categorized as Erotica Two starsJust meh The plot didn t hold my attention I forced myself to finish the book I didn t hate it, but I wouldn t recommend it to another reader One starRiddled with distracting spelling and grammatical errors The plot is severely disjointed and doesn t flow smoothly Whoever published this book has shown a blatant lack of respect for the reader.I ve gotten much better at selecting books I don t think I ll ever rate a book one star again.

    I loved this historical novel I was glued to the pages from the prologue to the epilogue It s a sweet story that tells about the romance between a duke s daughter and a merchant view spoiler John is a former navy officer who partners with another naval officer in a merchant shipping business John and Isabella meet when one of her family s carriages breaks down on the way to London After a rocky start, these two form a respectable friendship that eventually blossoms into a beautiful roman I loved this historical novel I was glued to the pages from the prologue to the epilogue It s a sweet story that tells about the romance between a duke s daughter and a merchant view spoiler John is a former navy officer who partners with another naval officer in a merchant shipping business John and Isabella meet when one of her family s carriages breaks down on the way to London After a rocky start, these two form a respectable friendship that eventually blossoms into a beautiful romance Despite the rules that dictate their match is forbidden, John and Isabella marry and enjoy a satisfying union hide spoiler There is no instalust These two fall in love A romance novel with actual romance these are becoming rare I admired the strength of the main characters In a time when classes were strongly discouraged from mixing, they broke the rules and clung to each other The subplot about the Mayfair thieves was interesting and showed John s chivalry in a new light Lieutenant John Armitage is my new book boyfriend He can rescue me any day

    Very enjoyable book It kept me company during a long weekend Lieutenant Armitage, the hero, is what I expect every romantic hero to look like.

    Isabella was a little snobby at first, but she grew on me She made tough choices at a time when stepping outside of the box and labels given to her meant social suicide I enjoyed the glimpses of 19th century France and modes of travel as well Thank goodness for progress.

    After reading the first book in this series, I wasn t sure about Lady Isabella She had a not so good attitude in The Vicar s Bride I was pleasantly surprised to see her grow as a character in this book In seeing her softer andvulnerable side, I grew to like her We also get to see muchof the Duke and Duchess of Linwood Isabella s parents in this story Their characters were briefly seen in the first book Lieutenant John Armitage is my new BOOK BOYFRIEND Talk about a knight After reading the first book in this series, I wasn t sure about Lady Isabella She had a not so good attitude in The Vicar s Bride I was pleasantly surprised to see her grow as a character in this book In seeing her softer andvulnerable side, I grew to like her We also get to see muchof the Duke and Duchess of Linwood Isabella s parents in this story Their characters were briefly seen in the first book Lieutenant John Armitage is my new BOOK BOYFRIEND Talk about a knight in shining armour who s always there when you need him He s handsome, rich, and gentleDon t mind me I m swooning againHe s just the kind of man Isabella needed, and I m so glad Ms Lockhart didn t pair her with some arrogant lord who hadn t worked a day in his life Seeing the dowager duchess again made this book even better I hope her character appears in every book of this series She s a hoot I also liked the captain who partnered with Lieutenant Armitage He brought comic relief and a few serious moments to this novel The trek to Paris was entertaining and educational I ve never been to France, so it was fun to see it through their eyes

    This was a good story Sometimes, the heroine cried a bitthan I would have, but I still liked her and I think meeting a good man helped her become a better woman I can t say enough wonderful things about the hero John is handsome, kind, protective, and has a nice sense of humor I enjoyed watching their relationship evolve from introduction to flirtation to courtship to marriage I m looking forward to reading the next installment in this series.

    Apparently, I should have read The Vicar s Bride before reading this one, but I think this works reasonably well as a standalone novel Lt Armitage and Lady Isabella meet quite accidentally and sparks fly Despite his humble beginnings, he s a gentleman I liked him I loved him He made me wish I was Isabella Lady Isabella grows out of her spoiled behavior into a lovely young lady The lovemaking is steamy just like I like it Their families are great minor characters If we all grew up in Apparently, I should have read The Vicar s Bride before reading this one, but I think this works reasonably well as a standalone novel Lt Armitage and Lady Isabella meet quite accidentally and sparks fly Despite his humble beginnings, he s a gentleman I liked him I loved him He made me wish I was Isabella Lady Isabella grows out of her spoiled behavior into a lovely young lady The lovemaking is steamy just like I like it Their families are great minor characters If we all grew up in homes like they had, the world would be a much better place

    This book has EVERYTHING I want to see in a historical romance novel brief glimpses of a history lesson, romance, sex, a bit of angst, adventure, a couple of bad guys, and a HEA I found the dowager duchess to be as entertaining as she was in the first book of this series Great characters and a great family
