A Winner Takes All Novel (#3)

A thrilling and absorbing tale about two people who find so much safety in each other that they’re able to take the biggest risk of their lives. Not to be missed.”
Kirkus Reviews (STARRED REVIEW, The Dare and the Doctor)

“Noble asks “Can men and women just be friends?” in the third Winner Takes All installment, and the answer is an enchanting tale filled with poignancy and wit…readers will be caught up in the plot as the hero and heroine’s letters reveal more and more about themselves and their relationship…secondary characters enhance the storyline and propel the romance. Noble crafts a lovely, easy-to-read story.”
—RT (FOUR STAR REVIEW, The Dare and the Doctor)

About the book

National bestselling author Kate Noble’s THE DARE AND THE DOCTOR lures readers back to the dazzling, irresistible Winner Takes All Regency Romance series. Margaret Babcock has always been content with her quiet life in the country. But every now and then, she feels the urge to spread her wings. Her late mother used to whisper, “What’s the worst that could happen?” at the start of an adventure, and now Margaret’s continuing the tradition. So when Dr. Rhys Gray, her longtime correspondent on matters botanical, invites her to speak to the London Horticultural Society about her new rose hybrid, she accepts. She’s excited about her first visit to London, but even more so about getting to see her friend Dr. Gray. When she arrives, Rhys is eager to show her the wonders of the city, and the two spend many happy hours together just as friends, of course! But would friends miss each other quite as fiercely when they’re apart; or feel such a spark when they’re together? Margaret finds that friendship with Rhys is much more complicated than she’d imagined…especially when it turns out her friend has forgotten that he may be promised to another woman.

Praise for the Winner Takes All Series

With her usual witty writing and exquisite flair for characterization, Noble offers [The Lie and the Lady]. The effortless manner in which she wrote. The Lie and the Lady as a separate love story while at the same time gracefully connecting it to The Game and the Governess and cleverly hinting at what is to come in the series is nothing less than brilliant.”
Booklist (STARRED REVIEW, The Lie and the Lady)

“After a scandalous escapade with John, a commoner she thought was the Earl of Ashby. Letitia returns to England as the fiancĂ©e of a somewhat older, titled widower- only to find out that her new home is right in John’s backyard . . . heartwarming.”
Publishers Weekly (The Lie and the Lady)

“The Earl of Ashby trades places with his friend and secretary in order to prove he can win a woman without the benefit of his title in The Game and the Governess…It’s a delicious treat to watch Ned grow from earl to man, and see the stalwart Phoebe get everything she deserves.”
Bookpage (TOP PICK IN ROMANCE, The Game and the Governess)

“The subtle development of romance between the devil-may-care earl and the proper governess is the impetus behind this winning novel, complete with rich characters and a multi-dimensional plotline.”
—Publishers Weekly (STARRED REVIEW, Best Summer Romance pick, The Game and the Governess)

The Wheat FieldThe Wheat Field by Steve Thayer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first Steve Thayer book I have read. The book story line does have some sex and violence
so be warned. I really liked the writing style. The book kept my interest up until the very last page in fact I was disappointed to be finished with the book

Stardust (Spenser, #17)Stardust by Robert B. Parker

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Started reading the first few pages and I thought this does not seem like something I am going to like.
In fact I started reading the book a few years ago and set it down after a few pages and went on to read something else.
Gave it a few chapters and somehow became hooked. Quick light enjoyable read.

The Roadmap to a RichLife: Success with Life, Relationships, and MoneyThe Roadmap to a RichLife: Success with Life, Relationships, and Money by Beau Henderson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A quick read. Most books about money and life cover the same sort of information this one was a little different. I thought the book was a good read to motivate and keep you on track to the important things in life. I like the chapter about the realities of hard and easy explaining how discipline pays in the long run. The chapter of Life school is a good section to remember when things do not go your way.
The worksheet sections are a good concept. This book is one to keep and read over and over when discouraged.
I won a copy of the book on goodreads

Scandal at High ChimneysScandal at High Chimneys by John Dickson Carr

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The mystery part of the story line really is no mystery. But I did enjoy how the author tied everything together in the last chapter. I also found the notes for the curious section of the book very interesting

Cover Her Face (Adam Dalgliesh, #1)Cover Her Face by P.D. James

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Very classic English style mystery writing style is much like Agatha Christie's. Reminds me of the old black and white mysteries I use to watch on a rainy Saturday afternoon in my youth.
