I was really excited to read Liz Carlyle’s newest historical romance, In Love with a Wicked Man. 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. The heroine first meets the hero, Lord Edward Quartermaine when he falls off his horse trying to avoid her horse resulting in a temporary amnesia. Because Kate felt guilty about the situation, she takes in the man and nurses him back to health. Well, sort of, since […]
MY THOUGHTS Pleasuring the Lady is the second book in the Pleasure Wars Series. We met Lady Portia in Taken by the Duke (my review) and Miles Weatherfield in An Introduction to Pleasure (Goodreads). Initially, I thought Portia and Liam would pair off but it was not to be. 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 […]
This was a very quick and refreshing read for me. 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. 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. He introduces himself as “Sark” (his gaming handle), when he sees that the new employee doesn’t recognize him. Michelle, on the other hand, finds herself attracted to this geek and […]

A Little Bit Sinful is the first book that I read written by Robyn Dehart and it turned out to be a refreshing read to me as well. This is also the second book in the series and I think it did well as a stand alone, seeing as I had not read the first book yet.
This story centers on Clarissa trying to steer her “perfect match” George, into proposing marriage to her. Unfortunately, it has taken him quite a while to propose and Clarissa is getting antsy.
MY THOUGHTS This story was a slow start for me. I struggled a little through the whole book and there were a few times that I had to put the book down and then pick it up after a few hours. I did enjoy the romance between Emily and Will and I thought they were a perfect match. Emily’s strength of character and kindness was the perfect salve for Will’s hatred and vengeance. I was a little bit irritated with Emily’s attitude towards Nicholas and their arranged marriage. Also, I couldn’t understand the change in Nicholas. I mean, if he […]
This novella was a very quick read for me. I was able to read it in a couple of hours or so. While this had a very promising plot, I thought the story was ok. Maybe because it is a novella and the author had to shorten the storyline – it just didn’t work for me. I like my romance to be well developed and not a lust at first sight type of thing. Normally, I shy away from novellas because of this reason. However, I love Sabrina Jeffries’ work so I decided to give this a shot. The story […]
Mary Hart Perry is a new to me author and Seducing the Princess is the first book that I read. I was thoroughly blown away! I loved reading about Queen Victoria’s youngest daughter, Princess Beatrice. Of course, I did a quick google search on her to read more about her and her life with the Queen. I am amazed at how the author seamlessly intertwined Princess Beatrice’s story with the facts surrounding her love match with Henry Battenberg. The story was well written and I empathized with Princess Beatrice. Queen Victoria really seemed like the villain of the story. I can just imagine […]
