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 […]

Lady in Waiting by Marie Tremayne [Excerpt]

Lady in Waiting by Marie Tremayne [Excerpt]

  “My lord, are you well?” Ashworth’s hand slowly dropped from the doorknob and he stared openly at her, his expression unreadable. Clara guessed it could have been weeks or months since he’d had a loved one or a friend ask him that question. He cocked his head to the side, eyeing her curiously. “Do I appear to be unwell?” Clara bit her lip. Of course, he appeared very well indeed. She couldn’t stop her eyes from scanning over him and felt herself flush hotly in response. “Yes…no…that is, you look distressed. As if something is wrong.” Ashworth stepped forward. […]

Oh, the Feels! An Offer from a Gentleman by Julia Quinn [Audiobook Review]

Oh, the Feels! An Offer from a Gentleman by Julia Quinn [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I normally don’t like Cinderella retellings (except for Cinder by Marissa Meyer) but An Offer from a Gentleman snuck into my heart early in the book. In fact, I was brought to tears! This is usually my measure for loving a book. I mean, if a book makes me cry, it is up there on my favorite list! Initially, I had reservations about it since we don’t really know a lot about Benedict Bridgerton other than him being the second son. We also don’t see much […]

Well, it took me a number of months to get into this book. To say that I was disappointed is such an understatement – this book was MEDIOCRE, to say the least!
