Ridiculously Short Plot Lady Catherine Mabry strikes a bargain with Lucian, the Devil Earl to have someone killed and they fall in love in the process. Main Characters Lady Catherine Mabry Lucian Langdon, Earl of Claybourne Themes Oliver Twist Murder plots Amnesia/PTSD Setting London, England – 1851 MY THOUGHTS I haven’t read this book in quite a while and re-reading it again made me fall in love with Lucien all over again! I felt that this book was fresh (even though I had read it before) and perfect for my mood last week (which is why I am currently re-reading […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
“Her,” he said. “I’ll take her.” When I read that part I fell in love with the whole story! I thought it was going to be the usual “rags to riches” story but it turned out to be a very entertaining Saturday read! The Duchess of Halford kidnaps her son and brings him to Spindle Cove to meet a woman – any woman who she says she can easily turn into a duchess. Griffin, the Duke of Halford, wants none of that and picks the most inappropriate and most impossible person to turn into a duchess, serving girl Pauline Simms. […]
I read this book after I read the last book of the series, The Prince’s Bride because I was intrigued by the mention of Princess Rose in the book (where her HEA wasn’t even mentioned). I actually bought this book last year but didn’t get around to reading it until after I read the final book in the trilogy. I’d like to start with Rose and Leopold as a couple. I was actually intrigued by their relationship when I read the prologue. In it, Leo was in jail for treason and for plotting to kill the king (Rose’s brother) with […]
Let me just say that I fell in love with Cross and Philippa the first time I read their verbal sparring. Both of these characters are so likable and the chemistry between the two pretty much jumped off the page! Pippa is really naive, adventurous, and too serious for her own good that I was practically laughing at her notions and thoughts. I also thought she was the perfect match for Cross who I see as a sensitive man despite his sordid past and reputation….
This is the first book that I read by Gayle Callen and it was a bit of a let down. I had decided to read this when I saw that it was on sale and bought it on a whim.
Grace Banbury goes to London to try to salvage what is left of their inheritance when her mother gambles away everything in a card game. When she arrives in London, she discovers that their town house is empty and devoid of any servants and she also meets Daniel Throckmorten, the newest owner. Daniel, thinking that she is her brother’s mistress, starts to make a proposition.
I read this book in a few short hours and I thought it was okay. I decided to buy this novella because I had already read the first book in the series, When in Paris… and I was very interested about Rebecca and Scott’s story. We first meet the two in the When in Paris… where there appeared to be tension between the two.
