Ben and Ashley are getting married! For the first time in history the Earl of Crofton will be allowed to marry a man.

But wedding admin isn’t always fun, and frayed tempers and bickering are not the best ways to prepare for the happiest day of their lives, but hopefully they’ll make it down the aisle before one of them kills the other. The arrival of two of Ben’s old friends at Crofton Hall does not help matters, especially with their rather messy shared history.

The hall also has a new writer in residence, Chris Gamling, and while he’s not always with the plot in the real world, he’s a brilliant wordsmith. When he meets Jack Webb, Ashley’s best friend, Chris feels the spark he’s been waiting for. Sometimes meeting the love of your life doesn’t have to be difficult.

This is the fourth Modern Crofton novel, featuring Benjamin Redbourn, the 16th Earl of Crofton and descendant of Anthony Redbourn, 1st Earl of Crofton from my historical series, The Crofton Chronicles. Each book in the Modern Crofton series will feature Ben and Ashley, alongside another couple finding love at Crofton Hall.

About The Author

Rebecca Cohen logo

REBECCA COHEN spends her days dreaming of a living in a Tudor manor house, or a Georgian mansion. Alas, the closest she comes to this is through her characters in her historical romance novels.

She also dreams of intergalactic adventures and fantasy realms, but because she’s not yet got her space or dimensional travel plans finalised, she lives happily in leafy Hertfordshire, England, with her husband and young son. She can often be found with a pen in one hand and sloe gin with lemon tonic in the other.

With contemporaries, historicals, sci fi and fantasy in her back catalogue, there should be something for every taste in Rebecca’s work.

A double delight as Ashley and Ben finally make it down the aisle

41qqa0ei9QL-2Getting Married at Crofton Hall by Rebecca Cohen

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

This is a delight. We get two love stories wrapped together here as Ben and Ashley go through the mill on the way to the aisle and Ashley’s best friend Jack falls madly in love with scriptwriter Chris, who is at the hall to work on Hidden For The Duke.

I absolutely adore Chris, he’s a complete cinnamon bun with a steely core and, while he floats through the world with a naive air, he can hyper focus to the extent that he blocks out everything else.

Jack’s suffering from a bruised ego and a lack of confidence as his previous long term partner ended their relationship fairly suddenly, and is now planning on marrying someone else.

These two bump – literally – into each other in passing before their paths cross properly at Crofton Hall and, while they might seem to rocket to an I love you situation, for me it felt like a realistic progression as both recognised they’d found their perfect partner.

Meanwhile, Dorian and Robin are on hand for the stag dos and they contribute, not necessarily deliberately, to the rising tensions between Ben and Ashley as they try to plan the wedding. For me here the plot was kept to a nice tight mix as they got mired down in the tiny details and lost the bigger picture – that they loved each other.

Rebecca uses some of my favourite background characters – Marchent’s wife Bunny and Ben’s sister Kitty, as well as the ever steadfast under butler Karl – to bring some sensibilities back to the proceedings.

Eventually, as this is a romance after all, we get the beautiful wedding and a (for now) happy ever after for Ben and Ashley that still leaves room for growth and more adventures.

Jack and Chris also seal their romance and their relatively angst free journey to love provides a nice contrast with the turbulent behaviour of their friends.

As ever I beta read this book for Rebecca but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Everything Caelan knows about his world is a lie.

A war is brewing. As the crown prince of Erya, it’s only natural that Caelan is sent on a secret diplomatic mission to support one of the kingdom’s allies. With his advisor, his bodyguard, and his best friend as traveling companions, what could go wrong?


Everything goes wrong.

Now they are on the run, dodging assassins, setting secret meetings, and even making deals with a sleeping god.

So, this is probably a really bad time to cave to feelings he’s been fighting for his best friend. But Drayce has owned his heart for more years than he can count and if he’s going to die, shouldn’t he have just one kiss?

The fate of the world is on the line, and only Caelan holds the power to save them all.

Steal the Wind is the first book in the six-book Godstone Saga fantasy series and is not a standalone. The story contains explosions, secrets, cranky gods, hidden romance, a prince on the run, a possessive ex-boyfriend, magic, and lots of delicious angst.
