I Need More Steampunk! Firelight by Kristen Callihan Audiobook Review

I Need More Steampunk! Firelight by Kristen Callihan Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Hello, awesomeness! I am still amazed at how much I love reading steampunk paranormal romance! This is not the genre that I normally read.

Kristen Callihan’s Darkest London series is another story! The world that she created is immersive and very interesting! Although this book didn’t receive 5 hearts from […]

London, England 1817 A woman laughed, and Alexander Lewis, Duke of Greyland felt the sound like a gunshot to his chest.

A Bittersweet End to a Series | When the Marquess Falls by Lorraine Heath Book Review

A Bittersweet End to a Series | When the Marquess Falls by Lorraine Heath Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   I was a little surprised that I enjoyed When the Marquess Falls because the whole Hellions of Havisham series wasn’t up to par with the other series that Lorraine Heath has written. In fact, I hated The Earl Takes All because the heroine COULD NOT tell the difference between her husband and his twin who was masquerading as HIM! HONESTLY! When the Marquess Falls is George, the Mad Marques’ HEA […]
