blurb:
A spy on a mission…

Until he meets this heiress!

Part of The King’s Elite. Miss Theodora Cranford’s learned to keep her impetuous nature locked away. She won’t be deceived by another man who can’t see past her fortune. She wants an honourable, sensible sort – not a self-assured scoundrel like her new neighbour, Lord Gray. Although she’s sure there’s more to him than meets the eye… But after that first captivating kiss, she’s certainly left wanting more!

my thoughts:

The Disgraceful Lord Gray (The King’s Elite Book 3) by Virginia Heath was entertaining historical romance with a blend of intrigue, mystery and a dash of humor.

Miss Theodora Cranford is a twenty-three year old heiress who lives with her uncle and his wife. She has her guard up around would be suitors because most men want her for her money. Lord Graham Chadwick a.k.a. Gray is a member of the King’s Elite who is on the hunt for a smuggling ring. This quest brings him to Thea’s home because he suspects her uncle is the ring leader. Gray has had a rough past, ten years ago he was betrayed by his father, his brother and his first love and as a result he gambled away his inheritance. This is something he has never fully gotten over. Since then he has had affairs with ladies but never taken any seriously. Now working as a spy he is hoping to get a promotion if he takes down the smuggling ring.

Hello all. Ahhh…Spring is finally here. We still have chilly mornings and frost on my windshield but the weather has been getting a little bit milder as the day goes on and March is on its way out. We are supposed to reach the 60’s a few days this upcoming week.

I took an inadvertent blog break these past two weeks (shocker) but I’m playing catch up today. I am afraid to look in my Yahoo mailbox because well, last I checked it said 155 unread emails so then I just closed up the email app and went on about my day lol.

Happy Sunday all. Another busy week has come and gone. We had flurries a few days this week but tonight we are expecting more snowfall, could be up to 8 inches. I feel like this always happens in March. It will start later this afternoon and continue through the whole night into the early morning so I’ve got my fingers crossed for a snow day tomorrow.

Also of note this past week, we went ax throwing with a group of friends and that was alot of fun. I want to go back again. I had beginner’s luck and got a bullseye on my first throw.

At a crossroads between a cringe-worthy past (Todd the Toad) and an uncertain future (she’s not exactly homeless, but it’s close), Lucy Swift travels to Oxford to visit her grandmother. With Gran’s undying love to count on and Cardinal Woolsey’s, Gran’s knitting shop, to keep her busy, Lucy can catch her breath and figure out what she’s going to do.

Except it turns out that Gran is the undying. Or at least, the undead. But there’s a death certificate. And a will, leaving the knitting shop to Lucy. And a lot of people going in and out who never use the door—including Gran, who is just as loving as ever, and prone to knitting sweaters at warp speed, late at night. What exactly is going on?

When Lucy discovers that Gran did not die peacefully in her sleep, but was murdered, she has to bring the killer to justice without tipping off the law that there’s no body in the grave. Between a hot 800-year-old vampire and a dishy detective inspector, both of whom always seem to be there for her, Lucy finds her life getting more complicated than a triple cable cardigan. The only one who seems to know what’s going on is her cat … or is it … her familiar?

Happy Sunday everyone and wow, the last day of September is here. It does feel like Fall as we’ve got cooler mornings and evenings too although it is warm during the day. It is nice though, the cozy Fall evening weather. It makes for nice crochet/reading time.

I’ve had a busy work week but it was also uneventful so I can’t complain. And I chopped off a few inches of my hair at the salon this week and have it now just touching my shoulders. My hair grows fast but it is so much easier to maintain when it is shorter since it is thick curly/wavy.

This upcoming month is going to be a busy one for me. I have a few things going on but I did save one week of vacation for October and I am hoping to re-energize during that week.
