Then Came You by Lisa Kleypas | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS I read the Dreaming of You first and was intrigued by Lily Lawson. In the book Dreaming of You, she was portrayed as a respectable lady albeit with a dubious past. In the first few chapters, I wasn’t warming up to Lily as I should. I thought her antics (especially the one mentioned in the first chapter) were ridiculous. However, as the story progressed, I empathized with her. The hero, Alex Raiford, is not as dark as Derek Craven (who I absolutely love) however, I think he is the perfect match to Lily’s headstrong character. I enjoyed reading the […]

How to Woo a Reluctant Lady by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

How to Woo a Reluctant Lady by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS Giles and Minerva are the perfect pair! The third book in the Hellions of Halstead Hall series is one if my favorites. Miranda starts falling in love with Giles as a young child during her parent’s death, however, falls out of love when Giles gave her the set down in her teens. Because of this, Minerva started writing serials with Giles as the villain. Giles had to put a stop to it as she was starting to allude to Giles’ undercover duties to the Crown. Although Minerva denies her feelings for Giles, she hasn’t stopped loving him I […]

Midnight’s Wild Passion by Anna Campbell | Book Review

Midnight’s Wild Passion by Anna Campbell | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS At first, I did not like Antonia at all. Sure, I felt that she was acting appropriately when she said that she hated all rakes, ergo hating Lord Ranelaw however, there was just something about her that I just did not like. That is, until the end when I found out what she went through when she was disowned by her father. I was a little surprised about what Antonia went through when she ran away with Johnny (the rake who broke her heart 10 years ago) and I was also puzzled why her brother didn’t even bother […]

Vampire Mine by Kerrelyn Sparks | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS This book is the first one that I read in the series and I am now reading the backlist! I had heard a lot about the Love at Stake Series but as I am not that fond of Paranormal Romance, I decided to skip it. However, I met Kerrelyn Sparks at the RT Booklovers Book Fair in Los Angeles in April and I got a signed copy of this book just for the heck of it. I started reading this when I got home and I could not put it down! I enjoyed the sparks that flew between […]

Dreaming of You by Lisa Kleypas | Book Review

This is the first book of the series that I read and I loved it. It has to be one of the best Lisa Kleypas novels that I have read to date. The premise is that Gothic author Sara Fielding, looking for more material for her next serial accidentally finds a man being attacked and saves him from certain death. This man is Derek Craven, a gambler turned businessman/owner of an exclusive London club. And so starts their road to finding love. I fell in love with Derek Craven the moment I met him. Course and gruff, he is the […]
