The Harlot Countess by Joanna Shupe | Book Review + Giveaway

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. MY THOUGHTS The Harlot Countess by Joanna Shupe was the first book in the Wicked Deceptions series that I read, although it is book number 2.  As with historical romance series, you can enjoy this book without reading the first one, The Courtesan Duchess. The heroine of The Harlot Countess is a widow and was married to someone old enough to be her father after a scandal on her coming […]

MY THOUGHTS The Courtesan Duchess is the first book in the Wicked Deceptions series by Joanna Shupe and I give it 3 hearts.  No, don’t get me wrong!  I really enjoyed the story and I loved the uniqueness of it BUT I was just bummed by the last half of the book that this ALMOST became a DNF for me.

Unfortunately, they were not destined to be together – yet and […]
