When the Marquess Was Mine

Amnesia plotlines aren’t easy to pull off well, so I’ll admit to a little trepidation when I picked up Caroline Linden’s When the Marquess was Mine, book three in her Wagers of Sin series.  Fortunately, she handles that aspect of the plot well and also creates a wonderfully romantic love stor ...

An Earl Like You

Six Degrees of Scandal

I’ve enjoyed every book in Caroline Linden’s Scandalous series and the latest, Six Degrees of Scandal is no exception.

A Study in Scandal

We have all heard of 50 Shades of Grey, but how many have heard of 50 Ways to Sin?

In this nov ...
