It’s been a busy winter here, but I’m sticking with the TBR challenge. This month’s theme is Ugly Ducklings. Even though my TBR pile is huge and AAR’s Special Title listing on the subject is also fairly large, I just couldn’t find anything on the list that was in my stack. So I started digging -and came up with One Unashamed Night by Sophia James. This one is a Harlequin Historical from August 2010, set in 1820s England. It started off slowly for me and it’s uneven enough that I don’t think I could recommend it to others, but I’m personally glad I stuck with it in the end. If I had read this book for review, it would have been about a C+ for me.
It was only a couple of weeks ago that many Americans and Canadians (and a few from further afield) were attending and reporting from the Romance Writers of America national conference in Orlando, Florida. However, there is another RWA out there, or down under, to be more precise. The Romance Writers of Australia just wrapped up their national conference early this week. Our much-missed former AAR-er Kate Cuthbert attended the conference and she’s visiting today to blog about it. Without further ado, here’s Kate!
