Night of Pleasure by Delilah Marvelle | Book Review

Night of Pleasure by Delilah Marvelle | Book Review

My Thoughts Night of Pleasure is the 4th book in the School of Gallantry series by Delilah Marvelle. This is the first book in the series that I read and I was able to follow through with no problem. The story is a unique one, I have to give you that and I quite enjoyed it. We first meet both characters when they were quite young (Clementine is 14) and the hero Derek, falls head over heels in love with her. Both are betrothed but because Clementine is still too young, they wait 7 years before they have to marry. Fast […]

No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

  The third book in the Rules of Scoundrels series, is about Temple (the boxer and enforcer of The Angel) and Mara, the girl who was believed to be dead AND the reason why Temple was banished from society. I had great expectations in this book since I have been quite intrigued about Temple since I read about him in A Duke by Any Other Name (Rules #1).  I was dying to find out who would be his salvation but I was a little bit surprised that MacLean paired him with Mara the person he was believed to have killed. […]

How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days by Laura Lee Guhrke | Book Review

How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days by Laura Lee Guhrke | Book Review

My Thoughts “A tale of second chances” How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days is Laura Lee Guhrke’s second book in the An American Heiress in London series.  I thought a story focusing on the arranged marriage that was never consummated and the matchmaking failure Belinda (When the Marquess Met His Match, An American Heiress in London #1) made would be a delicious story.  However, I was disappointed…again despite Guhrke being a favorite author. I love the premise: arranged marriage, the husband comes back to claim his bride, and hero and heroine discover love.  But that was about it.  The […]

When the Duke was Wicked by Lorraine Heath | Book Review

When the Duke was Wicked by Lorraine Heath | Book Review

When the Duke was Wicked is Lorraine Heath’s first book in her brand new series Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James.  You should note that this newest series flows with her other series Scoundrels of St. James, in that the main characters are Lady Grace Mabry (Sterling and Frannie’s daughter in Surrender to the Devil (Scoundrels of St. James #3) and Henry, the Duke of Lovingdon (Olivia Stanton’s son in Between the Devil and Desire (Scoundrels of St. James #2).  This story kicks of the series in a good note since it slowly introduces us to the other scandalous gentlemen that […]

Finally, we read about Dr. Graves and the true reason he became fascinated with being a physician.  This novella is a short and sweet story about Dr. William Graves and Winnifred, the Duchess of Avendale who we meet in In Bed with the Devil (Scoundrels of St. James #1).  She is Catherine Mabry’s friend who was abused by her husband, the Duke of Avendale.  This story starts a couple of years after Avendale was found “dead” (the reason for this can be read in In Bed with the Devil). In this story, Winnie has finally found confidence and courage and […]

The Trouble with Princesses by Tracy Anne Warren | Book Review

The Trouble with Princesses by Tracy Anne Warren | Book Review

This is the first book in the series that I actually read and finished (not counting the audiobook  that I listened to for The Princess and the Peer that I didn’t finish).  That being said, Tracy Anne Warren is one of my favorite authors.  For some reason, I just couldn’t get past Emmaline’s story and stopped listening altogether.  I guess it must be because I was “reading” an audiobook which I am not used to reading.  I may have to rethink the whole series and read the other two books sometime next year. The book can be read as a […]
