Tre¿ Devaux¿s title and land have been stripped away by the gree
Tre’ Devaux’s title and land have been stripped away by the greed of King John. Forced into the position, he is now the Sheriff of Nottingham. His task, set by this corrupt King, is to rid the land of the outlaws or lose everything the King has taken permanently.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Lady Jane Neville has been widowed but still the King has called upon her household to give up the men for his war with France. Unsettled by the tenuous position King John has created, Lady Jane has taken up in her uncle’s footsteps. She has big steps to fill, since her uncle is also known as Robin Hood.
Tre’ and Jane’s endeavors immediately put them at opposite sides of the law but with a common goal, save their homes and people. A fiery passion and intensity ignites when they meet. By giving into their desires, they would find themselves lovers on opposing sides of a civil war.
I absolutely enjoyed this quite authentic historical romance. Juliana Garnett’s writing whisks you away to a time long past and envelopes you into the England of old. The romance was slow building but filled with passion, the return to Nottingham was delightful, and the story was wonderfully suspenseful...a perfect historical romance.
This copy of The Baron was given to me by Random House - Loveswept in exchange for a honest review.

Halley Finnegan has just pulled up to a mansion in her little green Volkswagen. She again wondered how she let Leo Thorne talk her into this. His friends, the Harrington's, were having a house party and he talked her into replacing a guest who could not make it. A murder mystery house party. She would get to be somebody beside plain Jane Halley Finnegan for the weekend but she had let her best friend, Rosie, talk her into this crimson dress that hugged her tips and about squeezed her out the top.
She allowed herself introduced as the Contessa Ambrosia. Halley did not know she had a partner for the weekend though. The Baron von Bluster. She did end up having a really good time and Nick, the Baron, was quite attractive and played up the part of them being long lost lovers who have just been reunited. Every time she almost took his compliments to heart she reminded herself that she was a librarian at the Thorne Estate and when it was done and over Nick would still be a baron. Two different worlds. There was the murder and the clue searching and much fun. When Nick asked to see her after the party, in the real world, Halley made her escape and left the party to go home without letting him know she left.
Nick found her anyways. He would come often to the library and he got to know Halley's friends and family. Halley stayed in a small cottage on the property, Nick had a penthouse apartment. Nick had nanny's and did not understand the love of family. Halley had a large loving family that hugged and showed affection openly. She seen when Nick started to relax and enjoy them as well.
If only Nick did not hold back secrets from his life. He told Halley one which ended fine but he feared his other secret would tear them apart.
Can two people from such different worlds truly find love?
