What the Duke Desires is the first book of Sabrina Jeffries’ new series, The Duke’s Men. I had pre-ordered this book at B&N (it was frustratingly hard to download with the Nook which is a whole other ballgame and does not detract from my enjoyment and review of this book) and was able to read it on release day. The Duke of Lyons, a second son who became the heir when it was reported that his older brother, Peter died in the continent when he was kidnapped when they were children. He receives a mysterious note from Tristan Bonnaud hinting […]

I read this book in a few short hours and I thought it was okay. I decided to buy this novella because I had already read the first book in the series, When in Paris… and I was very interested about Rebecca and Scott’s story. We first meet the two in the When in Paris… where there appeared to be tension between the two.
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, […]
MY THOUGHTS What more is there to say about Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight? I understand that it is a very popular book, but this book didn’t capture me as it should have. I struggled while reading this book. First, I didn’t really get the obsessive love/relationship Bella had with Edward. The times that Edward was watching Bella while sleeping without her knowing really creeped me out. I thought it wasn’t very romantic (although some might view it as romantic) and it felt stalker-ish. Next, I hated that these breed of vampires glittered in the sunlight. This really re-wrote the vampire lore […]
MY THOUGHTS Disappointment does not begin to cover what I felt when I read the sequel to Firelight. I just could not get the love triangle between Jacinda, Will and Cassian. I just wanted to hit Jacinda in the head. So much so that I just could not finish this book! I didn’t even flip ahead to see how the whole book ended! I just thought it was so ridiculous for Jacinda to be flirting with these two guys when she was already in love with Will! Agh! To top it all off, she goes and runs away to Will, […]
MY THOUGHTS I was a little bit disappointed about this sequel. Again, this book left me hanging and there was still a lot of issues that were left unanswered. To be honest, I am still a little bit puzzled about the development of Daniel and Luce’s love story. True, they are destined to be together and have been falling in love in their past lives, but it was hard to believe how they fell in love in THIS life. It also seemed that Luce was not that interested with Daniel since it was apparent that she was flirting with another […]
