Book Review-Ransomed Jewels (1st in series)-Laura Landon

Monday, May 14, 2018

Some men just seem to always take another man's word without a second thought-especially if it is his dying words! To get them to realize their mistake----well----that is what this novel is all about! Samuel Bennett was positive that Lady Claire Huntingdon is a traitor. He heard what her late husband said when he lay dying--she had the necklace and some notes that would put an end to the war. Big problem--she didn't! She however had been trying to find them ever since she was threatened-twice.

There are twists and turns in this novel that will have your head spinning! The ending-well--you will not see it coming at all! I do have to tell you that there is a happy ending eventually. One other thought--Women are from Venus and Men are from Mars. Their priorities are definitely different as this author points out.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

With her husband’s dying words, “My marchioness has it,” the Marchioness of Huntingdon is thrown into a nightmare of intrigue and danger. But even those who are holding her brother ransom can’t force her to do the impossible—hand over a necklace she doesn’t have.

Major Samuel Bennett believes the newly widowed Lady Claire Huntingdon is a traitor. He intends to get the necklace he’s convinced she has, before sending her to the gallows. But when he meets the captivating widow, he discovers that nothing is as it seems.

Claire knows she can’t trust anyone, but she isn’t given a choice when Major Bennett arrives, demanding she give him the necklace. And it isn’t until she’s forced to put her life in his hands that she realizes it isn’t only her life she’s in danger of losing—but her heart as well.
