True Spies by Shana Galen

True Spies by Shana Galen

October 3, 2014 Historical, Reviews 3 DNF

True Spies is my second attempt at Shana Galen’s recent series. I need to give up. Galen was once a reliable read for me but the new direction is incompatible with my tastes. True Spies starts off strong, combining a faltering marriage and a heroine who has had enough of holding… Read more »

Talk Sweetly To Me by Courtney Milan

Talk Sweetly To Me by Courtney Milan

October 1, 2014 Historical, Reviews 6

Well, it had to happen. I found the Courtney Milan book I went completely meh for. Is it bad? No. In fact, Milan’s Talk Sweetly to Me reminded me of Edith Layton’s beloved holiday novellas, despite having not a hint of holiday about. (For reasons I won’t enumerate, I was pleased… Read more »

Lord Carew’s Bride by Mary Balogh

September 29, 2014 Historical, Reviews 0

You’ve probably noticed that we’ve been pretty bad at posting reviews lately. We’ve all either got stuff going on or we bought new videogames we just can’t seem to stop playing and reading books and writing reviews has just not been happening. I didn’t want to go a full week… Read more »

Lie By Moonlight by Amanda Quick

Lie By Moonlight by Amanda Quick

September 22, 2014 Historical, Reviews 4

I thought I’d bring back another review, this time from 2005. I’m reasonably certain it’s Amanda Quick’s Lie By Moonlight. The original version of this had far more profanity with no title or character names.  Jayne Ann Krentz / Amanda Quick / Jayne Castle / Jayne Taylor / Jayne Bentley / Stephanie James… Read more »

The Game and The Governess by Kate Noble

The Game and The Governess by Kate Noble

September 12, 2014 Historical, Reviews 2 DNF

Two strikes and we’re out. Something about Kate Noble’s voice doesn’t work for me at all. The Game and The Governess is my second Kate Noble attempt. Previously I failed to love The Summer of You. Although The Game And The Governess uses two of my least favorite tropes (exchanged identities and bets… Read more »

My Beautiful Enemy by Sherry Thomas

My Beautiful Enemy by Sherry Thomas

August 12, 2014 Historical, Reviews 3

My Beautiful Enemy is a book possibly better without it’s prequel. The Hidden Blade was so exceptional that My Beautiful Enemy is left with shoes it can’t fill. Yet My Beautiful Enemy is an excellent story on it’s own merits. Catherine Blade is the heroine of her own life. She’s capable,… Read more »
