Review: Never Judge a Lady by her Cover by Sarah MacLean

Never Judge a Lady by her Cover by Sarah MacLean

I’m one of the readers of this series who was completely blindsided by the revelation of Chase’s identity. After three previous books and many, many scenes where Chase was this mysterious figure who interfered over and again in the lives of the other owners of the Fallen Angel and who moved the members of the ton around […]

Review: Semper Fi by Keira Andrews

Semper Fi by Keira Andrews

I love m/m historical romance. There’s not a whole lot of it, but when I find an author I like who writes in this sub-genre I tend to glom their backlist and request every new release by them. Keira Andrews is a new to me author, but Mandi from Smexybooks had such good things to say about her recently published […]

Review: Only Enchanting by Mary Balogh

Only Enchanting by Mary Balogh The Survivors Club series #4

I have an iffy relationship with historical romance.  It has to have the perfect amount of angst and believability.  If not, it won’t hold my attention for longer than a couple of chapters.  If it does hold my attention, there is something cracky that makes me love the forbidden quality of romances played out so many […]

Review: Darling Beast by Elizabeth Hoyt

Darling Beast by Elizabeth Hoyt

My first love when I first started reading romance many, many years ago was historials and while I don’t read as many as I used to I do have certain go-to authors whose upcoming releases I still anxiously await.  Elizabeth Hoyt is one of those authors.

Review: To Marry A Scottish Laird by Lynsay Sands

To Marry A Scottish Laird (An English Bride In Scotland #2)

To Marry A Scottish Laird has been  sitting on my TBR list for a while. I started it and only got to the end of the first chapter before I set it aside for a couple of weeks because of several must read now books that caught my attention and got me all distracted. To be fair, this happens to […]

Review: This Wicked Gift by Courtney Milan

The Wicked Gift by Courtney Milan

I have never been able to get a grasp on Courtney Milan’s books.  She has such a gift for writing and creating the perfect sentence and wording however I find that I need to be in a certain mood when I open one of her books.  I know when I start one, the story will be rich […]
