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 […]

Night of Pleasure by Delilah Marvelle | Book Review

Night of Pleasure by Delilah Marvelle | Book Review

My Thoughts Night of Pleasure is the 4th book in the School of Gallantry series by Delilah Marvelle. This is the first book in the series that I read and I was able to follow through with no problem. The story is a unique one, I have to give you that and I quite enjoyed it. We first meet both characters when they were quite young (Clementine is 14) and the hero Derek, falls head over heels in love with her. Both are betrothed but because Clementine is still too young, they wait 7 years before they have to marry. Fast […]

No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

  The third book in the Rules of Scoundrels series, is about Temple (the boxer and enforcer of The Angel) and Mara, the girl who was believed to be dead AND the reason why Temple was banished from society. I had great expectations in this book since I have been quite intrigued about Temple since I read about him in A Duke by Any Other Name (Rules #1).  I was dying to find out who would be his salvation but I was a little bit surprised that MacLean paired him with Mara the person he was believed to have killed. […]

How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days by Laura Lee Guhrke | Book Review

How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days by Laura Lee Guhrke | Book Review

My Thoughts “A tale of second chances” How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days is Laura Lee Guhrke’s second book in the An American Heiress in London series.  I thought a story focusing on the arranged marriage that was never consummated and the matchmaking failure Belinda (When the Marquess Met His Match, An American Heiress in London #1) made would be a delicious story.  However, I was disappointed…again despite Guhrke being a favorite author. I love the premise: arranged marriage, the husband comes back to claim his bride, and hero and heroine discover love.  But that was about it.  The […]

The Last Wicked Scoundrel by Lorraine Heath | Book Review

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 […]

When the Marquess Met His Match by Laura Lee Guhrke | Book Review

When the Marquess Met His Match by Laura Lee Guhrke | Book Review

My Thoughts I love Laura Lee Guhrke and was excited when I found out that she would be featuring American Heiresses in her next series.  Although I am a fan of her work (especially the Girl Bachelor series), I was a little bit disappointed about this one which is why I rated it 3.5 hearts. I had a hard time warming up to Belinda Featherstone and a little bit put off my Nicholas.  The heroine is unlike LLG’s heroines that I know and love.  Belinda, being an American, is a widow of an earl who married her for her money, […]

When the Rogue Returns by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

When the Rogue Returns by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

While I was a little bit disappointed with What the Duke Desires, the first book in The Duke’s Men Series, I was blown away by When the Rogue Returns.  The premise caught my eye when I read it a few months back and I couldn’t wait.  I wasn’t disappointed.  I love the story of Victor and Isa and how they found each other again after 10 years.  It wasn’t as emotional as some of Sabrina’s other books but I think it had a lot heart. We first meet Victor Cale in What the Duke Desires and I found myself being intrigued by […]
