How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days by Kate McKinley | Book Review

My Thoughts “A surprisingly steamy read!” How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days is the first book that I read from Kate McKinley and it won’t be my last! Β IΒ really had no expectation when I started reading this book. Β In fact, this is the second readΒ this year that I read a book of the same title. Β That should be something of a negative, right? Β Wrong! Β I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Β For a novella, it felt like a full-length story to me. Β In that I mean that the characters are fully developed AND a lot happened in the story. Β I […]

Abducted by the Prince by Olivia Drake | Book Review

Abducted by the Prince by Olivia Drake | Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   My Thoughts “Meh.

Β I requested this book from Netgalley because I wanted to read about long lost Princes. Β I was really disappointed, though. Β Initially, I thought it would be an awesome read and I liked the characters but the story just fell short and […]

Redemption of the Duke by Gayle Callen | Book Review

Redemption of the Duke by Gayle Callen | Book Review

My Thoughts “Disappointing. Β Blah and boring.” I was extremely disappointed with this story.Β  I enjoyed previous Gayle Callen books but this was tedious and just plain boring. Although Adam Chamberlin, the Duke of Rothford was intriguing, he became dull and not likable early in the story.Β  I also did not relate to Faith at all and did not warm up to her immediately which is an odd thing for me. I also had bad vibes with this book since I have read unsatisfactory reviews on this so far but I still forced myself to read it and waited until the […]

My Thoughts “A page-turning tale of mystery and espionage” Sapphires are an Earl’s Best Friend is the third book in Shana Galen’s Jewels of the Ton series and focuses on Lily Dawson’s HEA.

No Ordinary Mistress by Robyn DeHart | Book Review

No Ordinary Mistress by Robyn DeHart | Book Review

My Thoughts No Ordinary Mistress is Robyn DeHart’s first book in her series Masquerading Mistresses. Β This is a novella and I was a little bit surprised how well the story flowed despite it being a little bit short for my taste. The two protagonists: Emma Masterson and Remington (love that name, BTW)Β Hawthorne, Earl of Latham are spies for the Crown. Β To complicate things, there are (were) partners. Β The story opens two years before when both Emma and Remy (Remington) were on assignment together and both had a falling out. Β Emma, being an independent woman that she is, did not want […]

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 GallantryΒ 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

  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). Β 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. […]
