Since I started this blog I have read a lot of Historical Romances. I first fell in love with this genre after reading Janice Preston’s book. It was because of her that I met so many other amazing authors, including the author of the book I’m reviewing today, Virginia Heath.
“The Mysterious Lord Millcroft” is the new book of Virginia’s, and it’s been release today. So congratulations, Virginia, on this amazing Publication Day.
Thank you Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Virginia Heath for the eCopy of the book and for allowing me to be a part of this blog tour and give my honest review.

I got really sad when I finished reading the Wild Warriner Series, because I know there were some characters there that I was curious about, including Clarissa. But when I found out about this book I was relieved. So you can understand how excited I got when I first started reading the book.
Sebastian Leatham is such an amazing character. I didn’t know if I would loved him as much as I loved the Warriner brothers, but I did! And I loved seeing how he reacted to Clarissa, how they interacted with each other. It was amazing. And the fact that he is a spy and was nearly killed, and now he’s trying to get back to living and getting better…
Well, Virginia does know how to make a story intriguing and a character different from all the others in her books. Each character that she writes about has that unique quality that makes me want to get to know them better with each page.
Then we have Clarissa… if you read “A Warriner To Tempt Her” you know who she is… When I first read about her I didn’t know what to think. She wasn’t the kind of character that immediately grab my love, but I knew there was a story there. Besides, I wasn’t focus on her when she appeared in that book. When I found out that Virginia was going to publish this book and it was about her and an male character/love interest, I got thinking and I realized that it was the right time to find out more about that story, about that feeling I had when I first read about her.
And that was what made me a bit open to her. I knew that she deserved to get her story told, even if she wasn’t very likable in the beginning and she has a lot of potential for developing and to grow as a person. So I was happy to finally see that developing, and to see her for whom she really is. So I was definitely not disappointed about this book.
I loved Clarissa and Sebastian’s relationship and that same relationship unfolded, because from page after page, we get that feel of love, action, drama, unexpected moments and humor that Virginia works so well in her storytelling. And it’s great to see how the characters can change, because it gives me a sense of realism in the world that Virginia Heath created, from book one of the Wild Warriners to this one.
And speaking about the Warriners and before I forget… I love to see the Warriners in this book. As soon as Dr. Joe appeared I almost screamed. It’s like seeing and old friend again, after so many time away from each other. And I know I have read his book this year, a couple of months ago, but still, it was amazing to read a bit about them again.
Overall, I can’t wait for the other books in this new series. the concept is amazing and I can’t wait to see what else Virginia is going to come up with and how exhilarating the next story will be. We are talking about Virginia Health after all, so I know she will write brilliant, funny, romantic, action and drama moments that will blow our minds and fill our hearts with the need of reading another book.
Do I recommend this book? I recommend all of her books, this one included. If you like Historical Romances and books with love, humor and action, plus a spy and a lady, go for it and go grab a copy of this book. Go buy it and enjoy a cup of tea (or wine) and the book.
