The Secrets of a Scoundrel

I can never decide what to think of spy novels set in historical England. On the one hand, you have authors like Joanna Bourne who craft rich novels full of intrigue. On the other, you have novels about people who are seriously unprepared to be a spy—like Virginia, Lady Burke. Virgi ...

Princess

Narrated by Elizabeth Wiley Originally published in 1999, Gaelen Foley’s Princess is the second book in her Ascension trilogy and contains enough cheese to keep several branches of McDonald’s going for the next decade. It’s very much a romance in the Old-Skool vein, set in ...

My Notorious Gentleman

My Notorious Gentleman is the sixth book in Ms Foley’s Inferno Club series, and is a well-written and well-characterised romance in which the handsome and battle-hardened war hero, Lord Trevor Montgomery, meets and falls for the local vicar’s daughter, Grace Kenwood. I enjoyed reading it – ...

My Dangerous Duke

Once upon a time, there was an author who told original, heartfelt stories and told them well. This author became an automatic read for many, including this reader, and was known throughout the land for her passionate tales.

Sadly that was the section of the book that worked the least. Overall, though, I was very pleased with the first book in her new ...

It’s a bad thing when a good book derails. It’s especially bad when a pleasantly retro romance with a unique setting doesn’t merely go off track, but instead careens wildly between bratty behavior by the previously forthright heroine, an otherwise likable hero turning into a Neanderthal, and ...

The Pirate Prince

Four years ago I began reading romance and my first year of non-stop romances was by far the most fun I have ever had reading. The Pirate Prince was one of my favorites that year and when I reread it recently, I found myself once again mesmerized by its swashbuckling hero and fairy tale quality. Bei ...
