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 »

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 »

No Place For A Dame by Connie Brockway

No Place For A Dame by Connie Brockway

February 17, 2014 Historical, Reviews 3 DNF

Uncle. Seriously. I give up. I’ve been trying to read Connie Brockway’s No Place For A Dame since November 1st. I think three months is enough. Why don’t I love this book? No idea. None. The setup is a science minded heroine and her non science minded man. There’s class… Read more »
