Overview

She isn’t accustomed to attention. He isn’t used to being denied. Romance is never simple, but when worlds collide in this classic novel from bestselling author Sally Goldenbaum, true love can seem unimaginable.
 
While playing the part of a glamorous contessa for a murder mystery weekend, Halley Finnegan finds herself in the arms of dashing baron Nick Harrington. For the first time in her life, Halley feels captivating, enchanting, a worthy companion to a wealthy, elegant man. But beneath the costume, Halley is just a nobody, while Nick remains a baron. After the festivities, the fantasy is over; Halley’s simply not in his class.
 
After Nick tracks down his mystery lady, Halley is sure that he’ll discover his mistake and run for the hills. Instead, he is all charm, teasing smiles, and gentle caresses, as if he never stepped out of character. How can she trust that this gentleman is the real Nick, and not just a part he plays? And how could Nick fall for a woman he wouldn’t have given the time of day a week before? Unless they start being honest with each other, Halley and Nick will lose each again—this time, forever.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Remember the Time, The Vow, This Fierce Splendor, Lightning That Lingers, Tall, Dark, and Lonesome, Dream Lover, and Legends.

    Really loved it!

    I thought it was great! Loved the flirting at the party. But I was disappointed the story was only 139 pages and the rest of tge total 250 pages were excerpts of other books! Still the story really was fantastic, I really love this author.

    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. 

    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.

    Awful

    ## Awful. I couldn't even finish it. I was actually bored. That rarely happens to me while reading. And why oh why is there always a dead wife?! Ugh. This book was not worth the money or the time.

    good

    It shows how important it is to show love your children and family. I enjoyed Halley character how she throws herself into her work and community,friends.
    Her friend Leo who got her the job and donated the Throne library asked her a favor. To be a guest at a murder weekend. One of the guests came down with the flue and they need that character as part of the story. She was to play the part of a Countess Who long ago was lover with Baron and they relite their romance. So Halley borrows antique cloths from friends shop and goes to the party almost backs out when she sees the mansion.
    Everyone knows each other except for the actors and Halley. No one uses real names for weekend, but she found out the Baron name was really Nick.
    Nick was willing to play the romance of the story he was impressed with Halley. They had a fun weekend but Halley left early and did not tell Nick goodbye.
    Throne library and estate were given to the community and Halley was in charge. She even lived in a cottage on the state. Halley had a lot of programs for different ages from preschool to senior citizens.
    Nick followed and found where she worked and was around her family,friends and community where they all showed love that he had a hard time understanding but he was learning. but was it to late? What secrets did Nick keep from halley?
    It was fun to be part of their world learning about love. I enjoyed the book and will read more from Sally.

    Oldie But Goody Returns

    The Baron by Sally Goldenbaum

    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?

    Contains sexual situations
