Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover by Sarah MacLean | Book Review

I received this book for free from the Publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. MY THOUGHTS “I’m a little underwhelmed by Chase’s story “ Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover is the last book in The Rules of Scoundrels series by Sarah MacLean and this book features the mysterious Chase!  Of course, it’s no secret that Chase is in fact, a woman and the younger sister of the Duke of Leighton (A Rogue by Any Other Name)!

What a Wallflower Wants by Maya Rodale | Book Review + Giveaway

What a Wallflower Wants by Maya Rodale | Book Review + Giveaway

MY THOUGHTS Warning: This review may contain spoilers What a Wallflower Wants by Maya Rodale is the third book in her Bad Boys and Wallflowers series and features Prudence, the third lady in the trio of best friends. I’m a little bit torn by this book.  And although I liked the writing and the style, I found it hard to relate and like Prudence.  I also didn’t like the abduction scene and how it came about.  I just felt that it was too… uhmm frivolous or something. I really felt for Prudence, though since she was sexually assaulted by someone […]

A Week to be Wicked by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

A Week to be Wicked by Tessa Dare | Audiobook Review

My Thoughts “A fun romance with a geeky heroine!” I have been intrigued by Minerva Highwood ever since I read A Night to Surrender, the first book in the Spindle Cove series.  Of course, we were given a small glimpse of Minerva’s romance and the rogue Colin Sandhurst, Lord Payne.  This book has also been recommended by quite a few romance bloggers (I’m looking at you, Mary!) so I immediately jumped on the bandwagon. I was not disappointed! I love Minerva Highwood!  Her strength and unique character really shown in this book.  Although we see it in the previous book, […]

The Earl’s Mistress by Liz Carlisle | Book Review

The Earl’s Mistress by Liz Carlisle | Book Review

My Thoughts “A little bit shocking!” Isabella Aldridge is in dire straights.  After being let go from her latest post, she is having problems landing a new one, owing to the fact that she is very pretty.  Her last interview did not go very well when she was propositioned by the Earl of Hepplewood to be his mistress instead of his governess.  Spitting mad, she refuses the offer, no matter that she still has two siblings to raise and to protect from her lecherous cousin.  Still desperate, she rethinks the mistress situation and asks help from her former employer, who […]

Once More, My Darling Rogue by Lorraine Heath | Book Review + Giveaway

MY THOUGHTS Warning: This review may contain spoilers Once More, My Darling Rogue is the second book in the Scoundrels of St. James series by Lorraine Heath and focuses on Drake Darling and Lady Ophelia Lyttleton.  We meet both of these characters in the first book When the Duke was Wicked since Lady Ophelia is Lady Grace’s best friend.  We should also note that Drake Darling is that little boy Frannie and Sterling adopted in Surrender to the Devil who was then known as Peter Sykes. Let me start to say this book is very emotional since it touches on subjects […]
