The Courtesan Duchess by Joanna Shupe | Book Review + Giveaway

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. MY THOUGHTS The Courtesan Duchess is the first book in the Wicked Deceptions series by Joanna Shupe and I give it 3 hearts.  No, don’t get me wrong!  I really enjoyed the story and I loved the uniqueness of it BUT I was just bummed by the last half of the book that this ALMOST became a DNF for me. The Courtesan Duchess is about Julia, the Duchess […]

The Other Duke by Jess Michaels | Book Review

The Other Duke by Jess Michaels | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS “A refreshing take on the marriage of convenience trope!” The Other Duke opens the new Notorious Flynns series written by Jess Michaels and I thoroughly enjoyed it!  It is a refreshing take on the marriage of convenience trope popular in Historical Romance stories but adds a new flavor to it with the tortured heroine!
