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 LondonΒ series.Β  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.Β  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.Β  But that was about it.Β  The […]

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.Β  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).Β  This story kicks of the series in a good note since it slowly introduces us to the other scandalous gentlemen that […]

When the Marquess Met His Match by Laura Lee Guhrke | Book Review

When the Marquess Met His Match by Laura Lee Guhrke | Book Review

My Thoughts I love Laura Lee Guhrke and was excited when I found out that she would be featuring American Heiresses in her next series.Β  Although I am a fan of her work (especially the Girl Bachelor series), I was a little bit disappointed about this one which is why I rated it 3.5 hearts. I had a hard time warming up to Belinda Featherstone and a little bit put off my Nicholas.Β  The heroine is unlike LLG’s heroines that I know and love.Β  Belinda, being an American, is a widow of an earl who married her for her money, […]

When the Rogue Returns by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

When the Rogue Returns by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

While I was a little bit disappointed with What the Duke Desires, the first book in The Duke’s Men Series, I was blown away byΒ When the Rogue Returns. Β The premise caught my eye when I read it a few months back and I couldn’t wait. Β I wasn’t disappointed. Β I love the story of Victor and Isa and how they found each other again after 10 years. Β It wasn’t as emotional as some of Sabrina’s other books but I think it had a lot heart. We first meet Victor Cale inΒ What the Duke Desires and I found myself being intrigued by […]

In Love with a Wicked Man by Liz Carlyle | Book Review

In Love with a Wicked Man by Liz Carlyle | Book Review

I was really excited to read Liz Carlyle’s newest historical romance,Β In Love with a Wicked Man. Β Although I love the premise of the story, I thought some of it was a little bit too fast paced for me. Basically, the story is about redemption with a little bit of amnesia added in the mix. Β The heroine first meets the hero,Β Lord Edward Quartermaine when he falls off his horse trying to avoid her horse resulting in a temporary amnesia. Β Because Kate felt guilty about the situation, she takes in the man and nurses him back to health. Β Well, sort of, since […]

Pleasuring the Lady by Jess Michaels | Book Review + Interview

MY THOUGHTS Pleasuring the Lady is the second book in the Pleasure Wars Series. Β We met Lady Portia in Taken by the Duke (my review) and Miles Weatherfield in An Introduction to Pleasure (Goodreads). Β Initially, I thought Portia and Liam would pair off but it was not to be. Β I was a little bit disappointed but after reading Pleasuring the Lady and reading how Miles and Portia fell in love, I changed my mind. I know now that Portia and Liam would not be a good match. The story starts after Ava has married Christian with Liam not talking to […]

Love, Technically by Lynne Silver | Book Review + Giveaway

Love, Technically by Lynne Silver | Book Review + Giveaway

This was a very quick and refreshing read for me. Β I actually enjoyed the story despite thinking the female protagonist to be a bit dense but I guess, the author had to use someone who wasn’t as tech savvy as the male protagonist. Β Despite that issue, I enjoyed it and read it in just one sitting. Noah Frellish, Billionaire CEO, helps Michelle Kolson one night while she was working late. Β He introduces himself as “Sark” (his gaming handle), when he sees that the new employee doesn’t recognize him. Β Michelle, on the other hand, finds herself attracted to this geek and […]
