    Pretty good historical romance find. The h has a disability and therefore ridiculed by society so she stays in tge country and avoids London. She has long accepted that she will never marry but her sisters decide she needs a romance and create a fake secret admirer that the h communicates with by letters. Her brother finds out what her sisters are doing and decides to host a 2 week long house party and hire someone to show his sister attention so that she'll forget the "man" she's been writing. The H wants a colt from the h's brother's stable so he agrees to keep his sister company for the 2 weeks. It's a sweet story and I liked it a lot.There are actually 2 stories entwined. Two different couples. I don't really like this style so I skimmed the other couple who is her brother and his ex.When I'm looking for a historical read I go straight to Christi Caldwell or Cynthia Wright usually because I always end up not liking other authors in this area. So this was a nice surprise.I will say I did have to suspend belief many times over what ppl were doing without consequences for the time period but still enjoyed.

    An excellent HR by a new author for me!Lady Elyssa has a secret admirer and she wants to meet him. Her brother Harrison, the Marquess of Fellingsdown, is horrified when he learns that the so-called admirer is nothing more than a fictitious gentleman their twin sisters have created in the hopes that their older sister will feel better about herself. You see, although she is breathtakingly beautiful and has a charming personality, Elyssa has never had a suitor. A freak accident at the age of nine left her with a mangled foot that could not be corrected, and she can not walk without the use of a cane. Her coming-out Season had been a mortifying experience, and she has been residing at the familial country estate ever since. Harrison, ever the protector of his sister, immediately organizes a house party to which he entices Brent Montgomery, the Earl of Charfield and most eligible bachelor in London, to attend. If Brent will "pay attention" to Elly for the 2-week duration of the party and cause her to forget about the secret admirer, Harrison will let Brent sire a colt on his prize-winning Arabian horse.Historical romances with house party themes are always fun and this one is no exception. Of course the "deal" goes awry from the get-go because Brent is immediately attracted to Elly, and vice versa. As they become better acquainted, Brent teaches Elly to look past her disability and strive to do all those things she once thought to be impossible. There were several touching scenes...Brent teaching Elly to waltz and how to play croquet...he was really the hero extraordinaire. In fact, their relationship reminded me of that between Kit & Lauren in Mary Balogh's A Summer to Remember. Add to this, a thoroughly enjoyable secondary romance between Harrison and the woman he loved and lost 4 years prior, a peer at the party who wants Harrison dead, a kidnapping and ensuing chase, and of course what transpires when the bet is discovered, and you've got one damn good book! The sexual content is mild and limited, but the sexual tension carries the story right on through.I'm currently reading another book by Laura Landon that is showing promise of being just as good as Shattered Dreams, and Ms. Landon is showing great promise of becoming an auto-buy for me. Seriously, if you are in the mood for a fast-paced, well-balanced HR with an awww-worthy love story (or two) and a sweet HEA, this would be the book to pick up (for only .99c on Kindle)!5 stars[image error](No, Dina, I will never grow tired of him.:)

    I really enjoyed this book. I’m sad to give it a lower rating because of content, because I really loved the characters and story. Elly is such a lovable character, she suffered a serious accident as a child and because of that has a noticeable limp when she walks. She is very self conscience about it and her four brothers are very protective of her. They hire Brent to come for a two week holiday and entertain her, never thinking anything would come of it. But, as soon as they meet they start falling for each other. I loved watching Brent with Elly, he was so sweet and understanding and yet really pushed her to believe in herself. They were really perfect for each other. There is also a side story of Harrison, Elly’s oldest brother, and his lost love Cassie. The side story was also fun to read about and you can’t help but hope things will somehow work out for them. Unfortunately, there is an unneeded love scene towards the end of the book (it is pretty mild, and they are practically engaged, but still). There is also some innuendo throughout, though not too much. For me, I would have preferred a cleaner version of the story. If those things had been left out I probably would have given it five stars. As much as I'd like to, I probably won't be reading anything else by this author. Unless they are clean...

    I was torn on how to rate this book!!! I LOVED the characters and the story but was sadly SHOCKED that what WAS a good clean romance..took a turn and had a very UNNECESSARY scene. It was short..and I don't know how descriptive because I tried to skip it...if it was my book I would just tear the two or so pages out entirely and then the book would be fine:)...Unfortunately the characters LOST my respect entirely though. I felt that the author let "worldy" standards take over what could have been an adorable book.:(.... I would have given this book FIVE stars if it wouldn't have had the "unneeded scene"... I don't dare read any more from this author for fear that they won't be clean...which is sad because I believe she is a talented author and could write the cutest books.:( DISAPPOINTED!

    I love a book that pulls you in with the first pages. This is a very sweet love story. Brent agrees to spend two weeks in the country as escort to the Marquess of Fellingsdown's handicapped sister. (Although, she is not that handicapped. She has a limp from an accident) In return he would get breeding rights to Fellindown's prized Arabian stallion. They fall in love but she is unable to accept that he truly loves her or would really desire to be with her. She is satisfied with a brief love affair to keep in her memories. I enjoyed the writer's style and will be picking up more of her books.

    This was a new author for me but wanted to give her a try with her e-book promo.I found the story of unexpected love found between a "perfect" man and a girl dealing with a physical deformity, both emotionally engaging and heartwarming. I also very much liked the subplot of lost love redeemed. Highly recommended.

    I love this novel by Laura Landon. I have re read this novel three times now and still enjoy the love story of Brentan Montgomery, Earl of Charfield and Lady Elyssa Prescott. Lady Elyssa, Ellie, when young fell into a well when she was very young. Because of that injury she was lame. As she grew into a beautiful woman she noticed the pitying looks she would receive in London and on any occasion society met. Brentan Montgomery, Earl of Charfield was wealthy, handsome and considered a most eligible bachelor by London's matchmaking mothers. But Brentan has but one love - his stable of Arabian horses. When he is offered breeding rights to the Marquess of Fellingsdown’s prize Arabian, El Solidar, if for two weeks he acts as companion to Fellingsdown’s sister, he doesn’t care if the reclusive Lady Elyssa has three chins and a dozen hairy moles, the prize at the end is worth anything he has to endure. But when he meets the elusive Ellie, all thoughts of gaining a prize Arabian colt disappear. He realizes he’s met the woman of his dreams - if only he can keep her from discovering the deceit that brought them together and convince her that her imperfections don’t matter to him.I highly recommend this romance. Sensual level I would give it a 5 but the love story is at a level 10. Definitely a five star read.

    A real tender love story. Loved it! Brent and Elyssia share common interests and are brought together by a plan that Elyssia's siblings put together (without her knowledge) after a previous plan doesn't quite go to plan.The plan assure's Brent will win big in the form of a prize horse once his side of the bargain is complete. But he didn't account for the possibility that his emotions might get in the way of what he hopes to achieve. Enter Elyssia who prefers to live life in the shadows after a tragic accident when she was younger leaves her dependent on a walking frame and the recipient of many non deserving sneers and comments from society. But Brent sees beyond her disability and falls for Elyssia. Thus making for an eventful course of developments and situations. The secondary story involving Harrison, Elyssia's brother throughout the book added extra flare to the story. The plot kept me interested till the end. Though quite predictable, I really enjoyed the easy flow storyline and would re-visit this one at some point!

    I quite enjoyed this, it was a fast, sweet read. The hero and heroine were lovely people and I enjoyed seeing them get their HEA. It was even more fun reading the reviews before I read this with major squawking over a very undetailed love scene towards the end ... oh, yes, there is a love scene! Beware, if you want a romance with no loving in it, this tiny little undetailed love scene will bulge your eyes, your heart will stop and life as you know it will be over! I really loved the cover too, I could imagine the couple on the cover being the hero and heroine.

    This book had it's problems and it's flaws, but overall the story was captivating and I enjoyed watching these two couples get together. The writing was sadly lacking and I wished it had been better! I kept hoping but just was frustrated. There were a couple of little sexual innuendo's at the beginning: the men thinking what they would like to do to the woman they liked, but it was fairly innocent. Then in the middle of a perfectly clean novel there was a sex scene. It was not too detailed but it was there and hurt the book for me:{

    I read this book on the recommendation of a friend. After reading it I realized that she had recommended a book of the same name but by a different author. I really didn't like this book - it was entirely too predictable. At any rate, maybe I'll give the right one a try - it's by Irene Spencer and is about a woman who was in a polygamous marriage.

    Ms. Landon doesnt disappoint at all! Another favorite of mine! The characters were amazing the scenes thrilling and heart warming and the end was a sweet melody to the whole story! No book has made me cry in years and this book had my displaying a few heart melting tears for both Brent and Elly along with Harrison and Cassie! Again amazing will be rereading again and again.

    Oh sooo sweetI truly enjoyed this romance. I had a hard time keeping it together when it came to hearing the confession from her brother about her injury. I could feel his guilt, as though it was my own. Loved the hero Brent, he was so endearing. I was a little irritated by the way her family so easily helped Elly remove Brent from her. Sorry folks, just lost the whole stupid review I spent time writing so now this is it.Read!!!! Family made me angry, treated her like a cripple, coddled and babied. They all moved on after and left her even more miserable than before, KNOWING DAMN WELL HE LOVED HER! The side story could've done without. Took away from the REAL love story. I am soooo pleased with the Hero Brent. That's exactly what he is too, a Hero. This isn't as informative as it was originally, but Brent is sticking with me unlike the other Heros I've read. (Over 700 books, in many categories, recently) Brent is above the fray. I haven't been this drawn to a character since I read ACHERON: The Dark-Hunter by: Sherrilyn KenyonWelcome to a very short list of mine of astounding characters Brent!*** This is a clean love story, kisses, a love making scene that was not descriptive

    The disabled are the strongest people in any century.A love!t story, showing disablement does not mean loveless. The mischief of youth has left Lady Elyssa disabled and cosseted by her family to a stifling degree. However an arrangement by her brother with an old a school friend gives her the opportunity to challenge what she thinks she can do and put her trust and love in another not of her family.TheWith twist for her brother and surprise for her parents.Well worth the read.

    I seriously loved this book! Its really two love stories tied in one, but the main focus is Brent and Elly. She's endured a lifetime of pain, physically and emotionally. Everything Brent does for Elly, giving her the strength to stand and do more than she believes she can. I love these two together. 🔥🔥I agree with other reviewers that the token bedroom scene, while not descriptive or explicit, was not necessary to this story. I get her point as to why she put it in, but it really didn't need it. CONTENT Violence - mildLanguage mildRomance 🔥 - Mature (that one unnecessary scene, ugh)

    Despite the numerous typos (the most annoying one being Ellyssa vs Elyssa - it means something when even the author of the book doesn't know the name of the heroine) and inconsistencies (the action happens during the summer - a summer house party - then 6 months pass and it's the beginning of autumn?!?; the heroine's brother learns the hero loves her and accepts it, then a few months after that he starts questioning the hero as to his feelings for his sister?!), I enjoyed the first half of the book - and that's why it gets 2 stars from me. I might have given it 3, if not for the soap opera drama (or maybe I should say TV show like drama). It felt just drama for the sake of drama, the more outlandish, the better. That put me way off. I started this book very hopeful, but I was so disappointed in the end.

    Aww, this was a cute story! Normally, I don't have that high of hopes towards self-published or not very well known authors. Those books tend to be kind of bad from my experience, no offense intended. The premise sounded fun and I needed something entertaining to read after the horrible crappiness that was the last book I finished. I must say, this book actually turned out to be really good. It was a bit slow in the beginning and I thought there was too much emphasis on the horses, so I was a bit turned off by it. However, once the two week party extravaganza started, things really picked up.I loved Elly and Brent. They were both strong characters by themselves. Elly struggles with a childhood injury that has left her crippled and Brent is a rake whose parents have turned him bitter towards relationships. The two of them were so fully fleshed out that they seemed real and I grew to love them. I don't know if there is a more perfect couple than Elly and Brent. I think Brent brought out the best of Elly. For so long, she had been facing ridicule from society and pity from her family and in a way, she was sort of floating by in life in her safe bubble away from anyone that could hurt her. I liked how Brent challenged her. Everytime she said she couldn't do something because of her disability, he showed her that she was much capable and a stronger person than she thought. Brent could have easily came off as a douche because of the whole hired escort thing. However, it was obvious pretty quickly that he forgot about the deal and genuinely cared for her. I was so happy for the two of them and I loved all their interactions. I liked how Brent said he'd always be there for her to lean on. I particularly loved the scene where he was teaching her how to play croquette. So adorable!! There was a sex scene toward the end, but it didn't seem to bother me all that much. It just made things all that more heartbreaking in the chapter that followed where Elly found about the horse deal. It's not really a spoiler to say Brent gets caught, cause let's be honest, they always get found out in these books. It made me so upset to read it though because they were such a great couple. I don't blame Elly for being pissed, but I felt terrible for Brent as well. When said out loud, the situation seemed worse than it actually was. I kept shouting at the book that they were having such a bad misunderstanding. It was horrible having to see Elly and Brent suffering and dying inside without each other. I was sucked in to the end of the book, hoping that she would forgive him. If I were Elly, I would've caved in a long time ago. It was clear that Brent loved her and there wasn't really anything else he could do to try to win her back other than what he'd already done.Overall, I really loved this book. Of course, there is the whole hidden deal cliche that eventually blows up in the character's faces, but I enjoyed it all the same. Brent was amazing and I want one of him myself. The romance was well done and they were a couple I could actually believe falling for one another. The only thing I didn't like was that there wasn't an epilogue. I read the last page and I was like, 'Wait...that's it?'. Things ended on a good note, but I selfishly wanted to read more about Elly and Brent.

    This is a Quickie Review. For the full review, please visit The Romanceaholic.Expected Release Date: November 1, 2010 (Available Now!)Publisher: Prairie Muse PublishingImprint: N/AAuthor’s Website: lauralandon.com/My Source for This Book: Amazon.comPart of a Series: NoSeries Best Read In Order: N/ASteam Level: SteamyWhen infamous rake Brentan Montgomery, Earl of Charfield, is offered breeding rights to the Marquess of Fellingsdown’s prize Arabian, in exchange for simply distracting Fellingsdown’s sister from an ineligible match, he jumps at the chance. Knowing that his cynical heart is in no danger of being touched, and that Fellingsdown’s sister must be a complete antidote for him to need to “hire” a man to keep her chaste company for two weeks, he looks at his obligation as an investment in his stable’s future.When he meets Lady Elyssa, however, he’s struck by a thunderbolt — for she is exactly the woman he has always dreamed of finding. Beautiful, intelligent, and just as horse-mad as Brent, Elyssa is his perfect mate.Lady Elyssa, however, has hidden herself away from society from a young age. Now a confirmed spinster, she has resigned herself to a life of being cosseted and protected by her well-meaning siblings. A childhood prank gone wrong resulted in a severe injury to her leg, forcing her to walk with a cane and an unbecoming limp, and her one disastrous Season in London confirmed for her that she would never marry or ever again willingly face society and their judgement.The more time she spends with Brent, however, the more she begins to long for a “real” life — that of a husband, and of children, and of feeling as though she is more than her injury.But when Elyssa discovers that Brent was “hired” to keep her company, can she trust her feelings and his?I found this one incredibly sweet and enjoyable. There was of course a Big Misunderstanding, but since it led to some very satisfactory groveling on the part of the hero, I can’t say I truly minded.It is very important for readers to be aware that there is a very strong secondary romance plot to this story. I personally enjoy such a thing in my romances, but I know that a lot of readers find it distracting, and as such need readers to realize that Harrison and Cassandra’s romance gets almost equal face time as Brent and Ely’s does.As of the writing of this review, Shattered Dreams is only $0.99 at Amazon.com for Kindle, and I urge fans of heroines with disabilities and of reformed rakes, as well as fans of good secondary romances to snatch this one up before the price goes back up.A very sweet Regency romance about righting past wrongs, of overcoming self-doubts, and of finding love in the most unlikely places. 4/5 Stars

    "Shattered Dreams" by Laura Landon is a stand alone novel that takes place during the Victorian Era. Brentan Montgomery doesn't believe he will ever find the perfect woman to love, so to ease his pain he's established himself as a rank among the ton. His one true passion is his Arabian horses, and when the opportunity to bread his prize horse comes around, he jumps at it. The catch is that he has to spend two weeks at a house party as the companion of Lady Elyssa Prescott. Elyssa suffered a terrible accident as a child, leaving her foot deformed. Doctors told her that she would never be able to walk again, but she proved them wrong. They also said that she would never be able to ride again, but she proved them wrong. Rising to the challenge, Elyssa has established herself as best as she could. But in a society that expects perfection from the upper class, she doesn't quite fit in. Together, Brentan and Elyssa move past their self esteem issues, to realize that they are perfect for each other. Overall, I enjoyed reading this novel. There is a strong secondary plot line that moves the main plot line forward.

    Shattered DreamsA terrible accident has left Lady Elyssa Prescott knowing what she can and cannot do. That knowledge has also shown her that she will forever be a spinster; a fact she is now content with. If only her family would believe her. When good intentions go wrong Elyssa is forced to participate in select party functions; something she dreads doing for fear of being made fun of. When a handsome rake pays particular attention to her, with showing her pity, she gets a look into what she is missing her in life. Taking full advantage to make memories once the party is over she vows not to lose her heart in the process.On one hand, Brentan Montgomery, Earl of Charfield, can obtain a coveted Arabian foal from the Marquess of Fellingsdown; on the other – he must pay particular to Fellingsdown’s unattached sister. His desire for the colt outweighs the possibility that Fellingsdown’s sister is a horrendous looking, foul tempered female. What he’s not prepared for is the feisty, determined and beautiful woman he encounters.From the moment of their first meeting to the moment when Brent realizes exactly who he is to pay court to you can feel the fireworks building. As the days pass and they spend more time in each other’s company one fights to keep from falling in love while enjoying their time together and the other soon realizes exactly what they covet. Can they survive when the truth comes out?Laura Landon writes a beautiful and exciting tale of how greed can turn into something different and what a family will do for one they love. At the onset Ms. Landon does something I’ve never seen done before – she introduces a secondary storm (hero and heroine) that proves to be just as exciting as the main characters. All WITHOUT taking away from Brent and Elly. This was one story that had me bawling throughout and at the end with a feeling of “ahhh”. I’m definitely adding more of her books to my “to be read” list and look forward to reading another.

    Synopsis: "Brentan Montgomery, Earl of Charfield has one love - his stable of Arabian horses. When he is offered breeding rights to the Marquess of Fellingsdown’s prize Arabian, El Solidar, if for two weeks he acts as companion to Fellingsdown’s sister, he doesn’t care if the reclusive Lady Elyssa has three chins and a dozen hairy moles, the prize at the end is worth anything he has to endure. But when he meets the elusive Lady Elyssa Prescott, all thoughts of gaining a prize Arabian colt disappear. He realizes he’s met the woman of his dreams - if only he can keep her from discovering the deceit that brought them together and convince her that her imperfections don’t matter to him. Lady Elyssa Prescott knows what it’s like to be ridiculed and shunned. But when Brent Montgomery lets her glimpse a world where her limitations aren’t important, she believes it’s possible for her dreams to become a reality. Until she discovers the man with whom she’s fallen in love was ‘hired’ to offer her everything she’s always dreamed of having.The cruel reality of a love built on deceit shatters both their dreams and threatens to destroy their lives forever."My Review: Wow, Shattered Dreams will send your emotions rolling, your heart fluttering and the tears flowing. It sucks you in within the first few pages with beautiful descriptions and fantastic characters. You can't help but care about every character and fall especially in love with Elly. I was drawn in by the Arabian horse element which quickly fell to the back burner as I dove into the story. You see how misunderstandings and assumptions can destroy hearts and lives and how love can sometimes mend those. I really can't wait to read more of Laura Landon's books!

    I actually give this book 1 and a half stars, since I save my one stars for books I hate with a fiery passion. But this book, ugh...I'd like you to meet Mary Sue and her suitor Gary Stue. But that's not all! Meet her entire FAMILY, all of whom are freaking perfection. Barf. If I met these people in real life, I would want to punch them in the face. Everyone is soooo beautiful, with tiny imperfections that are not actually imperfections at all. This reminded me of a 13 year old's fanfiction - contrived plots featuring flawless characters who are about as interesting as dry toast, with the personalities to match.And it was so easy to figure out the secret and who was the bad guy. And the brother's romance was super weird. At first, I was thinking, okay! this seems like it could be interesting. But then all the hate disappears and they're kissing each other and then they hate each other again, but not really, and it was all very confusing. Also, people need to just get over themselves and TALK to each other. I also really hate the love at first sight trope. Seriously, they knew each other for less than 2 weeks and boom they're in love? How can you decide you want to spend the rest of your life with someone after so short a time, especially when it's in a special setting where there was this crazy guy running around shooting at people? Not exactly reflecting real life here, people.There is so much more I could write about this book, but I feel mean and I don't want to rip it entirely to shreds. Bottom line, I wouldn't recommend it. But hey, that's just one person's opinion.
