Top Ten Tuesday – Books that feature characters who were…

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a tricky one!  It’s pretty open ended and I had to really think hard about what I wanted to explore.

This week the theme is Top Ten Books Which Features Characters Who Are Widowers.  I finally settled on this theme because I fear that I am becoming too repetitive in my posts.  While writing about time travellers or virgins or Scottish hunks is SO much fun, I wanted to branch out a bit.  So here is my attempt!

1.  The Edge of Desire by Stephanie Laurens

the edge of desire

Great characters and reunited lovers!  One of Stephanie Laurens best books in the Bastion Club!  Spirited Letitia leads Christian on a merry chase!

2.  A Gentleman’s Honour by Stephanie Laurens

Another Bastion Club novel with a ‘widow’ as the lead, but with a twist.  Alicia is pretending to be a widow to satisfy society expectations.  Tony is in for the surprise of his life!

3.  The Widow Wager by Jess Michaels

I just read this book and it was pretty steamy!  One great thing about widows is that they don’t have the same challenges that debutantes do!  Crispin and Gemma are great characters and the book is realistic and addresses some deep issues.

4.  Beauty Like the Night by Liz Carlyle

I really like Liz Carlyle’s books!  This one was full of angst and issues.  The characters are great and like all of her books, very steamy!

5.  A Highlander’s Passion by Vonnie Davis

I LOVED this book!  I’m not huge on the whole shapeshifter thing, but this series is just amazing!  Kenzie is a widow who lost her child and Bryce wants to be there to comfort her.  Steamy and smoking hot, this book explores loss and reunited lovers.  Awesome book!

6.  Reckless Wager by Christy Carlyle


Murder, mystery and a widow of ten years…awesome story!  Great characters and a mystery along with it!

7.  Highland Guard by Hannah Howell

A sinful deception…two people who remember a passion that would ignite them!  Another great book by Hannah Howell!  If you like Scots, then this is a book for you!

8.  Once and Always by Judith McNaught

once and always

A twist – the male is the widow and marriage was so brutal, he has an iron heart.  Proud Victoria tempts him like no other and makes Jason want things he shouldn’t.  A great book by the amazing Judith McNaught.

9.  Captured by the Laird by Margaret Mallory

Alison was looking forward to widowhood until David spies her.  He is known as the Beast, but this beauty captures his attention just like he captures her.  Steamy and smart!

10.  The Secrets of a Scoundrel by Gaelen Foley

secrets of a scoundrel

A strong willed woman and a disgraced spy.  Travel over England and France with lots of lust and mystery – a fantastic combination!

What are your favourite books with widows?  Let me know!
