Lord Carew’s Bride by Mary Balogh

Lord Carew’s Bride by Mary Balogh

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 »

The American Duchess by Joan Wolf

This month’s TBR Challenge called for participants to read a “classic” romance from their stash, for whatever definition of classic the reader decided on.

A Dream Defiant by Susanna Fraser

A Dream Defiant by Susanna Fraser

November 11, 2013 Historical, Reviews 7

I picked this one up a while ago based on the unusual pairing for a regency, and then promptly forgot about it since my TBR is out of control. When I was ranting again on Twitter about how hard it is to find romance with POC characters, someone brought it… Read more »

A Woman Entangled by Cecilia Grant

A Woman Entangled by Cecilia Grant

September 11, 2013 Historical, Reviews 1

While I admired much about Cecilia Grant’s debut novel, I didn’t love it. A Woman Entangled caught my eye because it promised all the things I love most. Class conflict. Toxic family dynamics. Social climbing beauties. Younger sons. I was ready for Grant to bring it on. Ultimately the experience… Read more »

The Arrangement by Mary Balogh

The Arrangement by Mary Balogh

August 27, 2013 Historical, Reviews 5

Some books permanently change the reader / author relationship. Having loved Mary Balogh since her earliest days I half-heartedly defended her previous disability themed books but still cringed when she announced The Survivor’s Club series. There are authors that do disability well, and then there’s Mary Balogh.
