Be My Prince

The theme of this story is gaining trust after deception on both sides. The book is enjoyable for the most part, but readers will likely look for more romance as the main characters switch from trust/love to distrusting rapidly for extended periods of time. Lady Alexandra Monroe’s fa ...

Between the Duke and the Deep Blue Sea

By
Sometimes a bad book is just a mediocre book with some bad patches – utterly unremarkable or memorable. This book, however, is so ridiculously bad that I’d prefer to forget it but I can’t. The author took what could have been an interesting premise and added every type of Dumb and Dumber plo ...

Lessons in Loving a Laird

By
This book needs to come with a warning. If you can make it through the extreme violence in the first chapter or two, you will be rewarded with a good love story.         As children, Shona MacAslan, her twin sister and a brother see their family brutally murdered. The sisters are ...

The Princess and the Peer

I generally like to start reviews by listing what I liked in a book. While there are a few likable parts in this one, it was too much a chore to read the first half and find a connection to the story to even want to finish the book. The author spends too much time with the main characters dillydally ...

Taming an Impossible Rogue

I am really upset with Suzanne Enoch. Here’s a book that I loved enough to stay up to read in one sitting waiting for the happily ever after. But Ms. Enoch gives us her typical ending with no glimpse into the HEA itself, just the very start of their commitment to each other. It left so many questi ...

How to Ravish a Rake

By
I have enjoyed reading Vicky Dreiling in the past. I like her sense of humour, which extends to her characters and their stories. While this book has all of that, the majority of the story is about the need to have sex for the primary characters. I couldn't wait to finish it, just so I did not have ...

Wedded in Scandal

By
This book has one of the nicest heroes I have read in a while. I fell in love with Robert Percy, Viscount Redhill, shortly into this slightly meandering romance. His actions, thoughts, family, and persistence in love are the anchors that keep the reader going through the story.         ...

Passion Wears Pearls

By
When picking up this book, I was worried about being sucked into an emotionally draining plot with an almost blind hero and a penniless heroine. My reservations fell away within the first couple of chapters to be replaced with warm fuzzies by the end of this well-written Victorian romance.   ...

Passion and Pretense

By
Passion and Pretense is a book with a promising plot, but the author’s voice and shallow characters keep it from reaching its full potential. The lack of emotional connection meant I had to push to get through this book. Penelope Rastmoor is a TSTL heroine right off the bat. She ha ...

Sweet Enemy

Sweet Enemy is a sensual romantic suspense with characters that have brains and passion, and are not afraid to put both to good use. Unlike so many other Regencies, almost everything from the setting to the characters to the suspense comes with a twist and never feels clichéd. This in itself made t ...
