Betrothed by Elizabeth Elliott | Book Review

Another favorite!  I obtained this book while browsing a local second hand bookstore back in the Philippines and bought it when it became available via ebook.  Sadly, I left my paperback in the PH and hopefully, it will still remain in good shape. This book starts off with Baron Guy of Montague arriving at Halford Hall and spotting Lady Claudia.  Guy is immediately intrigued by her and plans to make her his bride.  That is, until Baron Lonsdale hatches a plot to keep Guy from obtaining Halford Hall at a fair price.  Unfortunately, this plot ends up with Guy and […]

Stranger in My Arms by Lisa Kleypas | Book Review

Stranger in My Arms by Lisa Kleypas | Book Review

I have read and re-read this book multiple times and it has never failed to entertain me.  I love the story and to be honest, I have read at least once in each book cover design.  Here are the covers: This is a unique story, I thought and I never expected the twist in the end when it was revealed who the real Hunter was.  When it was revealed that the stranger was Hunter’s half brother, I felt that it was a little bit unsettling to a certain extent but I still enjoyed reading this story. The story starts off […]

My Fair Mistress by Tracy Anne Warren | Book Review

My Fair Mistress by Tracy Anne Warren | Book Review

This is perhaps one of my favorite books by Tracy Anne Warren.  In fact, I believe this was the first book that I have read from her and she has become one of my auto-buy authors ever since.  I have probably read this book about 5 times and I just love it.  It’s like every time I read it, I get sucked into the romance between Rafe and Julianna. The way Miss Warren weaves in romance, love, and lust in the book is believable in a sense that as a reader, you would think that this kind of situation would really happen in […]

Then Came You by Lisa Kleypas | Book Review

Then Came You by Lisa Kleypas | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS I read the Dreaming of You first and was intrigued by Lily Lawson. In the book Dreaming of You, she was portrayed as a respectable lady albeit with a dubious past. In the first few chapters, I wasn’t warming up to Lily as I should. I thought her antics (especially the one mentioned in the first chapter) were ridiculous. However, as the story progressed, I empathized with her. The hero, Alex Raiford, is not as dark as Derek Craven (who I absolutely love) however, I think he is the perfect match to Lily’s headstrong character. I enjoyed reading the […]

How to Woo a Reluctant Lady by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

How to Woo a Reluctant Lady by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS Giles and Minerva are the perfect pair! The third book in the Hellions of Halstead Hall series is one if my favorites. Miranda starts falling in love with Giles as a young child during her parent’s death, however, falls out of love when Giles gave her the set down in her teens. Because of this, Minerva started writing serials with Giles as the villain. Giles had to put a stop to it as she was starting to allude to Giles’ undercover duties to the Crown. Although Minerva denies her feelings for Giles, she hasn’t stopped loving him I […]

Vampire Mine by Kerrelyn Sparks | Book Review

Vampire Mine by Kerrelyn Sparks | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS This book is the first one that I read in the series and I am now reading the backlist! I had heard a lot about the Love at Stake Series but as I am not that fond of Paranormal Romance, I decided to skip it. However, I met Kerrelyn Sparks at the RT Booklovers Book Fair in Los Angeles in April and I got a signed copy of this book just for the heck of it. I started reading this when I got home and I could not put it down! I enjoyed the sparks that flew between […]

Dreaming of You by Lisa Kleypas | Book Review

This is the first book of the series that I read and I loved it. It has to be one of the best Lisa Kleypas novels that I have read to date. The premise is that Gothic author Sara Fielding, looking for more material for her next serial accidentally finds a man being attacked and saves him from certain death. This man is Derek Craven, a gambler turned businessman/owner of an exclusive London club. And so starts their road to finding love. I fell in love with Derek Craven the moment I met him. Course and gruff, he is the […]
