An Heiress to Remember

Life is pretty scary right now, and diversions can feel few and far between, but don't despair! Maya Rodale's An Heiress to Remember, the third installment in her Gilded Age Girls' Club series, made me smile pretty much from start to finish.

A Wife Worth Investing In

I know when I pick up a book by Marguerite Kaye that it’s going to be something different and A Wife Worth Investing In - the second book in her Penniless Brides of Convenience Series – is no exception.  It can be read as a stand-alone but I know I am definitely going to go back and read book o ...
