Princess in Love by Julianne MacLean | Book Review

Princess in Love by Julianne MacLean | Book Review

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 […]

One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

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….

Never Trust a Scoundrel by Gayle Callen | Book Review

Never Trust a Scoundrel by Gayle Callen | Book Review

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.

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.

A Little Bit Sinful by Robyn DeHart | Book Review + Giveaway

A Little Bit Sinful by Robyn DeHart | Book Review + Giveaway

A Little Bit Sinful is the first book that I read written by Robyn Dehart and it turned out to be a refreshing read to me as well. This is also the second book in the series and I think it did well as a stand alone, seeing as I had not read the first book yet.

This story centers on Clarissa trying to steer her “perfect match” George, into proposing marriage to her. Unfortunately, it has taken him quite a while to propose and Clarissa is getting antsy.

April Wrap Ups

April Wrap Ups

I have to say that I have been a busy bee this last month.  I have read a total of 9 books, with 1 reviewed in April that I added just to make the list an even 10. I have a varied list this month with 5 being Historical Romances, 2 YAs, 1 Fantasy, 1 Time Travel, and 1 Contemporary Romances.  However, I still see my currently reading list mounting up.  I still have a habit of pretty much abandoning some of the books that I have been reading that I have lost interest in.  For the moment, at least. […]

The Prince’s Bride by Julianne MacLean | Book Review

The Prince’s Bride by Julianne MacLean | Book Review

I thought the start of the story was very interesting. I liked Veronique’s spunk and I actually started to fall for prince charming, Nicholas! I loved the part where they were talking on either side of the door. Unfortunately, once the big secret was revealed, the story turned out to be very convenient and predictable. While Nicholas saved Veronique and her family, he didn’t really show her his love. I thought their love turned out to be pretty superficial.
