The Seduction of Emily by Rachel Brimble | Book Review

The Seduction of Emily by Rachel Brimble | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS This story was a slow start for me.  I struggled a little through the whole book and there were a few times that I had to put the book down and then pick it up after a few hours. I did enjoy the romance between Emily and Will and I thought they were a perfect match.  Emily’s strength of character and kindness was the perfect salve for Will’s hatred and vengeance.  I was a little bit irritated with Emily’s attitude towards Nicholas and their arranged marriage.  Also, I couldn’t understand the change in Nicholas.  I mean, if he […]

March Wrap-Ups

March Wrap-Ups

I apologize for posting my March wrap-up mid month since I was so busy the first week of April since it was my birthday week.  Yay me!  Anyway, I am now back to reading Historicals! For the last few of weeks, I have noticed that I have been reading a lot of Young Adult romances. Not that these romances aren’t good reads but I haven’t really been reading a lot of YA’s in the last few years. I did pretty good this month reading wise BUT not with my March TBR list!  Apparently, I tend to avoid my list like the […]

A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan | Book Review

A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan | Book Review

My Thoughts I was very surprised when I read A Long Long Sleep. I actually read a review on this book while blog hopping (I forgot which blog it was) and I thought the blurb sounded very interesting. When the ebook was available at the library, I immediately checked it out and promptly forgot about it. Fast forward to three days before the book was due and I received an email from the library that the book was due. I started reading it that same day and I enjoyed it. The story is that Rosalinda, daughter of one of the […]

Ten Reasons to Stay by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

Ten Reasons to Stay by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

This novella was a very quick read for me. I was able to read it in a couple of hours or so. While this had a very promising plot, I thought the story was ok. Maybe because it is a novella and the author had to shorten the storyline – it just didn’t work for me. I like my romance to be well developed and not a lust at first sight type of thing. Normally, I shy away from novellas because of this reason. However, I love Sabrina Jeffries’ work so I decided to give this a shot. The story […]

Seducing the Princess by Mary Hart Perry | Book Review

Seducing the Princess by Mary Hart Perry | Book Review

 Mary Hart Perry is a new to me author and Seducing the Princess is the first book that I read.  I was thoroughly blown away!  I loved reading about Queen Victoria’s youngest daughter, Princess Beatrice.  Of course, I did a quick google search on her to read more about her and her life with the Queen.  I am amazed at how the author seamlessly intertwined Princess Beatrice’s story with the facts surrounding her love match with Henry Battenberg. The story was well written and I empathized with Princess Beatrice.  Queen Victoria really seemed like the villain of the story.  I can just imagine […]

My Fair Mistress by Tracy Anne Warren | Book Review

My Fair Mistress by Tracy Anne Warren | Book Review

This is perhaps one of my favorite books by Tracy Anne Warren.  In fact, I believe this was the first book that I have read from her and she has become one of my auto-buy authors ever since.  I have probably read this book about 5 times and I just love it.  It’s like every time I read it, I get sucked into the romance between Rafe and Julianna. The way Miss Warren weaves in romance, love, and lust in the book is believable in a sense that as a reader, you would think that this kind of situation would really happen in […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I HAD to Buy But Still Haven’t Read

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I HAD to Buy But Still Haven’t Read

We all have those impulse-buy moments and have been guilty of hoarding books like it’s the end of the world or something and to be honest, I am one of those.  This weeks’ TTT is something close to my heart as I am a notorious impulse-buyer and some of the books end up gathering digital dust in my Nook. Here are my top 10:   Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl The series was on sale the week of the movie release for $2.99 and I went ahead and bought the first book.  But naturally, I haven’t read […]

A Most Scandalous Proposal by Ashlyn Macnamara | Book Review

A Most Scandalous Proposal by Ashlyn Macnamara | Book Review

This is Ashlyn Macnamera’s debut novel so she is definitely a new to me author.  Don’t get me wrong, I do love to read new to me authors.  In fact, I have discovered a lot of awesome authors this way.  However, this story just missed the mark.  I read the book knowing this was going to be about Miss Julia St. Claire but instead, I was reading about the sister Sophia meeting another guy!  I mean, I just barely started reading and by the time I reached Chapter 3, I was totally confused about where this story was headed. True, […]
