I also thought the timeline to be off. They met 1 year […]

I received this book for free from the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   MY THOUGHTS Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. For the last few months, I have not been reading a lot of historical romances because – well, I wrote about it explaining the reasons why.  Until two books that I read in the last two weeks (of writing this review).  One of them is The Hunter by Kerrigan Byrne.

What the Duke Desires by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

  What the Duke Desires is the first book of Sabrina Jeffries’ new series, The Duke’s Men.  I had pre-ordered this book at B&N (it was frustratingly hard to download with the Nook which is a whole other ballgame and does not detract from my enjoyment and review of this book) and was  able to read it on release day. The Duke of Lyons, a second son who became the heir when it was reported that his older brother, Peter died in the continent when he was kidnapped when they were children.  He receives a mysterious note from Tristan Bonnaud hinting […]

Seducing the Princess by Mary Hart Perry | Book Review

Seducing the Princess by Mary Hart Perry | Book Review

 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 […]
