Angel in a Devil's Arms

So good! Like everyone else who read Julie Anne Long’s Lady Derring Takes a Lover, I couldn’t wait to read Angelique’s story. Her character in the first book of The Palace of Rogues series was intriguing and delightful and her story, Angel in a Devil’s Arms is a real treat - arguably the bes ...

Lady Derring Takes a Lover

Delilah Swanpoole, Countess of Derring, learns the hard way that her husband, “Dear Dull Derring,” is a lot more interesting—and perfidious—dead than alive. It’s a devil of an inheritance, but in the grand ruins of the one building Derring left her, are the seeds of her liberation. And she ...

Malcolm & Isabel

When Julie Anne Long wrapped up her much adored Pennyroyal Green series with The Legend of Lyon Redmond, she did a rather odd thing. The final pages of the book--a DIK for us--leapt forward in time to an epilogue set in the year that book was published (2015). Readers suddenly found themselves readi ...

What I Did for a Duke

Incredible as it may seem (and it still does – to me!) the Pennyroyal Green series is one that I haven’t yet completed.  I’ve read the last three or four books but not the earlier ones, so I decided to pick up one of them for September’s TBR prompt to read an historical romance.  What I Di ...

First Time at Firelight Falls

If you’re a fan of slow-burn romances, I suggest you jump into First Time at Firelight Falls. I can’t think of the last time an author pulled this trope off so well - or the last time I was able to read so much meaning into just a few lines of dialogue. This book took me on an unexpected, but th ...

Harry is all that Genevieve wants in a man — he’s funny, handsome, shares her knowledge and love of Italian art, and makes her smile every time she sees him. She is certain they make the perfect cou ...

Dirty Dancing at Devil's Leap

Julie Anne Long knocks another homer out of the park with Dirty Dancing at Devil’s Leap, the third volume in her delightful series of Hellcat Canyon novels. Ever since Avalon Harwood can remember, she’s had a crush on her childhood friend and confidant, Mac Coltrane.  They more or less grew ...

Dirty Dancing at Devil's Leap

As I looked back over my notes so as to be able to write this review, two words kept popping out: relatable and refreshing. Relatable because the characters are just that and refreshing because that’s how this book felt. In Dirty Dancing at Devil’s Leap, the third installment in her Hellcat Cany ...

Wild at Whiskey Creek

Wild at Whiskey Creek offers a twist on the friends-to-lovers theme, with the long-standing friendship between the hero and heroine having recently fallen apart. Unfortunately, however, I found the book difficult to get into, and put it down multiple times. Neither the hero nor heroine captured my i ...

Hot in Hellcat Canyon

I have been a Julie Anne Long fan since I read her first book, The Runaway Duke published in 2004. I have anticipated each and every novel in her eleven book series featuring the Redmonds and the Everseas of Pennyroyal Green, and I chose The Legend of Lyon Redmond as one of my top picks for 2015. Ju ...
