Buttercup by Sienna Mynx

Buttercup by Sienna Mynx

March 10, 2014 Historical, Reviews 0

After reading Harmony by Sienna Mynx, an interracial romance between a black jazz singer and a white mobster in Jazz Age Harlem, I got a craving for romance set in the 20s and 30s. I bought an f/f by Colette Moody and this book, and Meoskop’s DNF review didn’t dent… Read more »

Moonstruck Madness by Laurie McBain

Moonstruck Madness by Laurie McBain

February 21, 2014 Historical, Reviews 4

Laurie McBain is an author  often underrepresented in casual histories of the genre. Moonstruck Madness did massive business. I decided to revisit Moonstruck Madness because it was the book I remembered the least. MM is a glorious train wreck of domestic violence and kitchen sink plotting. No wonder I forgot most of… Read more »

I am aware Courtney Milan’s The Countess Conspiracy has been heavily reviewed. It’s at the top of everyone’s list for Best Book of 2013. (Save yourself some time, it’s good and you should buy it.) Unlike most I had some issues with The Countess Conspiracy that kept me from declaring… Read more »

Harmony by Sienna Mynx

Harmony by Sienna Mynx

November 20, 2013 Historical, Reviews 3

Someone on Twitter, probably Evangeline Holland, suggested I try Sienna Mynx if I was looking for interracial romance. When I was browsing the author’s backlist this particular title jumped out at me because of the attractive cover, but the Jazz Age Harlem setting and black jazz singer paired with a… Read more »
