Once More, My Darling Rogue by Lorraine Heath | Book Review + Giveaway

Once More, My Darling Rogue by Lorraine Heath | Book Review + Giveaway

MY THOUGHTS Warning: This review may contain spoilers Once More, My Darling Rogue is the second book in the Scoundrels of St. James series by Lorraine Heath and focuses on Drake Darling and Lady Ophelia Lyttleton.  We meet both of these characters in the first book When the Duke was Wicked since Lady Ophelia is Lady Grace’s best friend.  We should also note that Drake Darling is that little boy Frannie and Sterling adopted in Surrender to the Devil who was then known as Peter Sykes. Let me start to say this book is very emotional since it touches on subjects […]

Finding Miss McFarland by Vivienne Lorret | Book Review + Giveaway

Finding Miss McFarland by Vivienne Lorret | Book Review + Giveaway

My Thoughts I really enjoyed Finding Miss McFarland so much!  The third book in Vivienne Lorret’s Wallflower Wedding series, Finding Miss McFarland is an awesome read. Delaney, the heroine, is a very interesting character.  Coupled with her tendency to be clumsy, especially when she is around Griffin Croft.  Unfortunately for her, their first meeting turns out to be one of the most talked about incidents in the ton which.  This led her to go out of her way to avoid Griffin, to the point of sending someone to stalk him (just so she can avoid him).  But as fates would […]

A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin by Sophie Jordan | Book Review

My Thoughts A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin is the first book in the new series The Debutante Files by Sophie Jordan and it does not disappoint!  It is heartwarming and adorable at the same time.  A little less on the spicy side but still very entertaining. I really love Rosalie and Declan’s story.  Although there aren’t that many interactions between the two, they still sizzle whenever they are in a scene together.  Because of Declan’s grudge with Rosalie’s mother, he lumped her in the same ilk as she and had a hard time accepting her as a different person.  Rosalie, on […]

Wed at Leisure by Sabrina Darby | Book Review

Wed at Leisure by Sabrina Darby | Book Review

My Thoughts Wed at Leisure is the second book in the Taming series by Sabrina Darby and tells the story of Kate Mansfield, the mean sister in Woo’d in Haste. This time, we will find the true reason why Kate was mean to her sister Bianca. We also see glimpses of Kate’s past with Peter Colburn, the Duke of Orland, their neighbor. Although this book is way better than Woo’d in Haste, it still did not reach the mark for me. There was nothing really special about this story and nothing that made me like Kate at all. So, her […]

Redemption of the Duke by Gayle Callen | Book Review

Redemption of the Duke by Gayle Callen | Book Review

My Thoughts “Disappointing.  Blah and boring.” I was extremely disappointed with this story.  I enjoyed previous Gayle Callen books but this was tedious and just plain boring. Although Adam Chamberlin, the Duke of Rothford was intriguing, he became dull and not likable early in the story.  I also did not relate to Faith at all and did not warm up to her immediately which is an odd thing for me. I also had bad vibes with this book since I have read unsatisfactory reviews on this so far but I still forced myself to read it and waited until the […]

A Night to Surrender by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

A Night to Surrender by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts A Night to Surrender is the second book that I read from Tessa Dare.  I read Any Duchess Will Do (the 4th book in the series) first because I love to start reading a series out of order (insert sarcasm here).  This is also the first audiobook that I have listened to since last year’s audiobook debacle.  Why go back to audiobooks, you ask?  Well, I saw a Groupon for a free 2-month audiobook trial and well, tried it.  This is the first “purchase” I have with the system. A Night to Surrender is the first book in […]

Nine Rules to Break when Romancing A Rake by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

Nine Rules to Break when Romancing A Rake by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

My Thoughts I initially read Nine Rules to Break when Romancing a Rake a couple of years ago and DID NOT finish it! Gasp!  I know, right?  Then last year, I picked up One Good Earl Deserves a Lover and I was hooked!  I immediately went back and read her backlist and I am so glad that I did. The story takes place 10 years later when Callie, wanting to be free and taking a page from her brother, creates a bucket list.  Naturally, she immediately visits Gabriel in his townhouse in the middle of the night to ask for […]
