She Deserved to Get Her Dream & Her Man! Secret Desires of a Gentleman by Laura Lee Guhrke [Reread Review]

She Deserved to Get Her Dream & Her Man! Secret Desires of a Gentleman by Laura Lee Guhrke [Reread Review]

Secret Desires of a Gentleman is one of my favorite historical romance books ever! In fact, I’ve reread this book multiple times over the years pre-Goodreads! The last time I reread this book as marked on GR was in 2016 – 4 years ago. Which is why I am writing this review now. I am taking off one star to my rating. I honestly don’t do this often, but I have been known to knock down stars after a reread. But I’d like to explain my 4-star rating and why I wish this book should have had an epilogue. As my […]

It was a bit…. boring. Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas [Audiobook Review]

It was a bit…. boring. Chasing Cassandra by Lisa Kleypas [Audiobook Review]

We finally have the last Ravenels book and one of my highly anticipated books of 2020! Unfortunately, Chasing Cassandra was a bit of a disappointment for me. But at 3.5 stars, it was still an enjoyable book. Let me explain. I have been intrigued by Tom Severin since he first appeared in Cold-Hearted Rake. As you now already know, I am a fan of self-made men and Lisa Kleypas writes the best ones! Derek Craven, John McKenna, and Simon Hunt, anyone? But I digress. Chasing Cassandra was sweet and fun and quirky (not too quirky, like Pandora’s book) and it […]

A Heroine in Disguise! Sins of a Wicked Duke by Sophie Jordan [Book Review]

A Heroine in Disguise! Sins of a Wicked Duke by Sophie Jordan [Book Review]

  I seriously had deja vu when I was reading Sins of a Wicked Duke! This is a Sophie Jordan backlist book and I swear I have read it before! Well, I think I read this years ago because I couldn’t exactly remember the plot, but while I was reading it, I felt that I read it before! I really love the premise – a spinster who is not of the aristocracy was fired from another job because she refused the advances of her employers’ son only to meet a rake who propositions her for the same thing! She doesn’t bite but […]

This Book Did Not Deliver. The Scoundrel in Her Bed by Lorraine Heath [ARC Review]

This Book Did Not Deliver. The Scoundrel in Her Bed by Lorraine Heath [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I read The Scoundrel in Her Bed in December and this was actually one of my most anticipated reads of last year. In fact, I was ecstatic that I received an eARC of this book because I love this series. Unfortunately, this wasn’t a favorite and it turned out into a dud. Don’t get me wrong, this book is written well. Not only that, Lorraine Heath is one of my favorite authors and I thoroughly […]

West is my new Book Boyfriend! Devil’s Daughter by Lisa Kleypas [ARC Review + Giveaway]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   There is a reason why Lisa Kleypas is called the Queen of Historical Romance (in my romance circle, at least) and this book basically sums it up! Devil’s Daughter is everything I hoped of and more! In fact, it’s better than the other books in this series and actually reminded me of the older Lisa Kleypas books! Let’s start with the hero. Lisa Kleypas heroes are one of my favorite heroes – […]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.   When Avon asked if anyone would be interested in reviewing The Kingdom of Copper, I decided to request it know that it was book 2. I was planning to get book 1 myself until I received m book mail and discovered that they included all two books. Let me tell you, requesting this book was NOT a mistake! The City of Brass was not something that I expected but it really surprised […]
