‘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 […]

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 […]

What the Duke Desires by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

What the Duke Desires by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

  What the Duke Desires is the first book of Sabrina Jeffries’ new series, The Duke’s Men.  I had pre-ordered this book at B&N (it was frustratingly hard to download with the Nook which is a whole other ballgame and does not detract from my enjoyment and review of this book) and was  able to read it on release day. The Duke of Lyons, a second son who became the heir when it was reported that his older brother, Peter died in the continent when he was kidnapped when they were children.  He receives a mysterious note from Tristan Bonnaud hinting […]
