The Trouble with Princesses by Tracy Anne Warren | Book Review

The Trouble with Princesses by Tracy Anne Warren | Book Review

This is the first book in the series that I actually read and finished (not counting the audiobook  that I listened to for The Princess and the Peer that I didn’t finish).  That being said, Tracy Anne Warren is one of my favorite authors.  For some reason, I just couldn’t get past Emmaline’s story and stopped listening altogether.  I guess it must be because I was “reading” an audiobook which I am not used to reading.  I may have to rethink the whole series and read the other two books sometime next year. The book can be read as a […]

‘Twas the Night After Christmas by Sabrina Jeffries [Book Review]

‘Twas the Night After Christmas by Sabrina Jeffries [Book Review]

This is the second time that I read ‘Twas the Night After Christmas and I am amazed at how touched I still am with it.  In fact, certain parts of the book have brought me to tears.  Normally, I am not a fan of reading about children in the books that I read but the presence of the child actually enhances the story and I think Lord Devonmont would not find his redemption without the child. This story was the right choice to release in hardbound last year.  The story is typical Sabrina Jeffries style with lots of emotion and […]

Pleasuring the Lady by Jess Michaels | Book Review + Interview

Pleasuring the Lady by Jess Michaels | Book Review + Interview

MY THOUGHTS Pleasuring the Lady is the second book in the Pleasure Wars Series.  We met Lady Portia in Taken by the Duke (my review) and Miles Weatherfield in An Introduction to Pleasure (Goodreads).  Initially, I thought Portia and Liam would pair off but it was not to be.  I was a little bit disappointed but after reading Pleasuring the Lady and reading how Miles and Portia fell in love, I changed my mind. I know now that Portia and Liam would not be a good match. The story starts after Ava has married Christian with Liam not talking to […]

Everbound by Brodi Ashton | Book Review

Everbound by Brodi Ashton | Book Review

 “The unexpected twist in the end made it an amazing read” Everbound is the second book of the Everneath series by Brodi Ashton.  This book is not a stand alone and it basically will not make any sense to you if you skip reading the first book, Everneath.  Read my Everneath review here which I basically did not give a lot of hearts for.   Because I wasn’t to happy about the first book, I had been dragging about reading the sequel.  In fact, I had borrowed it a few months ago from the library and ended up not reading […]

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 […]
