Mistress of the Seas by Ruth Langan is a reread for me. And what an emotional reread it was! It has been years since I read this book and I remember why I loved it so much! In fact, I went out of my way to buy a copy on Amazon because my own copy is back in my hometown gathering dust! Mistress of the Seas was the perfect book to read to get out of the current reading slump I was in. This book is about a female pirate and a Scottish prisoner of war who got sold into […]

In this scene, Lady Juliana must deal with a local crime lord who threatens her and the orphanage she loves. Fortunately, she’s saved, for the moment, by a handsome guest. ____________________________________________________________________________________ His hand came down hard on her shoulder, and she flinched from the feel of his leather gloves on her bare skin. “Allow me to remind you, Lady Juliana. I offered you my protection.” “Thank you very much.” She slid out of his grip. “Now, if you will excuse—” “Stop playing games. I am a man of business, and you are not a stupid woman. There are dangerous men […]
They stopped beside a black car with tinted windows. Out of nowhere, a driver appeared and opened the door for them. Darcy suddenly felt underdressed, which was stupid since they were only going for a ride. “So tell me: What’s so appealing about Five-Star Darren?” Reed asked as they slid into the back seat. A glass partition separated them from the driver. “None of your business.” Oh God, they were not having this conversation. Not while a billion dirty thoughts were driving her to distraction. Damn him, why did he have to mention sex? Her hormones hadn’t been this rowdy since […]
“I want to know about you,” he spoke before she could, and then shifted closer, his knee pressed into her thigh once more. “I have questions. I’m made of them.” She gave a little laugh as she shook her head. “There’s nothing more to know about me than what you already know.” “There’s literally everything to know about you,” he insisted. “Where did you go to school?

Don’t want to read the whole review? Click to jump to the Skinny Review. This is my first Rachel Gibson book and I was charmed! Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson had all the pop culture references which was full of nostalgia and OMG! I love it! It is pretty obvious that Simply Irresistible was published in 1998.

The Characters are AMAZING This is probably one of the […]
