No Place Like Oz by Danielle Paige | Book Review

No Place Like Oz by Danielle Paige | Book Review

My Thoughts “Amazingly twisted…” I read Dorothy Must Die first and this book second.  Although you don’t need to read this book first, I recommend that you do so as this book will answer a few questions you might have on Dorothy. The story starts a little slow, we are seeing Dorothy on their farm in Kansas doing farm chores and missing Oz.  She had told her Aunt Em, Uncle Henry, and her best friend about her adventures in Oz but they wouldn’t believe her.  It is now 2 years after her trip to Oz and Dorothy has turned 16.  During […]

No Ordinary Mistress by Robyn DeHart | Book Review

No Ordinary Mistress by Robyn DeHart | Book Review

My Thoughts No Ordinary Mistress is Robyn DeHart’s first book in her series Masquerading Mistresses.  This is a novella and I was a little bit surprised how well the story flowed despite it being a little bit short for my taste. The two protagonists: Emma Masterson and Remington (love that name, BTW) Hawthorne, Earl of Latham are spies for the Crown.  To complicate things, there are (were) partners.  The story opens two years before when both Emma and Remy (Remington) were on assignment together and both had a falling out.  Emma, being an independent woman that she is, did not want […]

The Last Wicked Scoundrel by Lorraine Heath | Book Review

Finally, we read about Dr. Graves and the true reason he became fascinated with being a physician.  This novella is a short and sweet story about Dr. William Graves and Winnifred, the Duchess of Avendale who we meet in In Bed with the Devil (Scoundrels of St. James #1).  She is Catherine Mabry’s friend who was abused by her husband, the Duke of Avendale.  This story starts a couple of years after Avendale was found “dead” (the reason for this can be read in In Bed with the Devil). In this story, Winnie has finally found confidence and courage and […]

Sin Anthology by Jess Michaels | Book Review

Sin Anthology by Jess Michaels | Book Review

I’ll start with reviewing my favorite story of the three novellas, The Sweetest Sin.  I absolutely adore the two protagonists Landon and Julianna who were eloped five years ago.  It should have been a happy ending but their marriage was annulled when Julianna’s father, Lord Trevington, caught up to them and forced her to marry the Duke of Breckinhill.  The story, however, starts when five years later, Julianna, now a widow goes to Landon for help to save her sister Evelyn who their father has used to pay off his gambling debts.  Naturally, Landon asks that she become his mistress […]

Those Nights in Montreal by Beverley Kendall | Book Review

Those Nights in Montreal by Beverley Kendall | Book Review

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.

Ten Reasons to Stay by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

Ten Reasons to Stay by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

This novella was a very quick read for me. I was able to read it in a couple of hours or so. While this had a very promising plot, I thought the story was ok. Maybe because it is a novella and the author had to shorten the storyline – it just didn’t work for me. I like my romance to be well developed and not a lust at first sight type of thing. Normally, I shy away from novellas because of this reason. However, I love Sabrina Jeffries’ work so I decided to give this a shot. The story […]
