Hero's Redemption by Georgie Lee + Featured Freebie

Hero's Redemption
London, 1817

Devon, the Earl of Malton, is a hero for his deeds at the Battle of Waterloo. But he suffers terrible nightmares, and drinks himself to sleep most nights. A habit he vows to break when he awakes one morning to find a woman sharing his bed, no memory of how she got there, and her angry brother at his door.

Cathleen is mortified when her wastrel brother and his greedy wife propose a blackmail scheme involving the earl, but as a penniless war widow she's at their mercy. She goes along with the plan and sneaks into Devon's bed one night, and ends up comforting him through a night terror.

Charmed by her beauty and kindness, Devon determines that rather than pay the blackmail, he will offer his hand in marriage to Cathleen. Although she is deeply attracted to the stoic earl, Cathleen cannot understand why Devon would want to marry her. What she doesn't know is that Devon owes her a debt that can never fully be repaid…

My Rating: 5 Roses

Cute, short, sweet, and a wonderful historical romance novella. Hero's Redemption was a lovely romance about moving on and falling in love.

Cathleen was a sweet heroine. She just came off as a genuinely nice person, so she was easy to like. I really appreciate that she wasn't prone to dramatics. When she found out the truth about that "debt" of Devon's, she doesn't fly off the handle. She was calm and reacted like a normal person. She was a lovely character.

Devon was wonderful, as well. He was a sweet man, plagued by guilt over something he didn't have control over. I really liked him. He was a sweet, gentlemanly, perfect hero. What's not to like?

The romance was well done. It was very sweet. Cathleen and Devon were absolutely adorable together. I especially loved that Cathleen was the one person who could calm Devon when he was having nightmares. I just thought that was cute. And there was definitely some spice to go around. Both of them were experienced and weren't shy about getting what they wanted. They were a perfect couple.

The plot was fast paced. Despite the fact that this was a novella, there was still a fair amount of character development and backstory. There were thrills as Cathleen tried to thwart her awful brother. And the ending was perfect.

Hero's Redemption was a lovely novella that I really enjoyed. If you want a light, short, and sweet read, this is your book.

Today, I have a YA zombie apocalypse read that sounds good: Mortality by Kellie Sheridan . Go forth and get it for free!

After surviving a deadly plague outbreak, sixteen-year-old Savannah thought she had lived through the very worst of human history. There was no way to know that the miracle vaccine would put everyone at risk for a fate worse than un-death.

Now, two very different kinds of infected walk the Earth, intent on nothing but feeding and destroying what little remains of civilization. When the inoculated are bitten, infection means watching on in silent horror as self-control disappears and the idea of feasting on loved ones becomes increasingly hard to ignore.

Starving and forced to live inside of the abandoned high school, all Savannah wants is the chance to fight back. When a strange boy arrives with a plan to set everything right, she gets her chance. Meeting Cole changes everything. Mere survival will never be enough.
