Review: How to Master Your Marquis by Juliana Gray

Review: How to Master Your Marquis by Juliana Gray How to Master Your Marquis Author: Juliana Gray Reviewer: Ang Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: What I enjoy about Juliana Gray’s books are that they are unconventional tales of betrayal, trust and ultimately redemption. Rather than the typical damsel in distress, she gives us charmingly flawed heroes and smart, strong women who find themselves in odd situations doing highly dangerous things. How to Master Your Marquis was no different. Our hero Haltherfield is a charming, devoted, strong, scarred and wounded hero who finds his path to redemption in Stephanie, a princess in hiding working as a law clerk. She is snarky, cheeky, funny and excellent to read. Together they are...

Review: Moonlight Kiss by LuAnn McLane

Review: Moonlight Kiss by LuAnn McLane Moonlight Kiss Author: LuAnn McLean Reviewer: Ang Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: LuAnn McLean paints a lovely small town picture in Moonlight Kiss. She nails the charm, quirks, nosiness, friendliness, and sense of community you’d experience in a small southern town as you walk the streets of Cricket Creek with Addison and Reid. She fully embraces you in the feel and flavor of this small Kentucky town, a place I wouldn’t mind visiting if it actually existed. In addition to the sweet southern charm of the town, Ms. McLean writes engaging and sweet characters who’s chemistry you feel right from the start. Addison stumbles into Cricket Creek running from a...

Review: The Luckiest Lady in London by Sherry Thomas

Review: The Luckiest Lady in London by Sherry Thomas The Luckiest Lady In London Author: Sherry Thomas Reviewer: Ang Rating: A-, 4 Stars What I’m Talking About: One of the things I love about a Sherry Thomas book is that the author always gives us characters with well-developed back-stories complete with realistic issues, quirks, and intellectual interests. Her heroes are deeply flawed and her heroines are smart, funny and all enjoy pursuits outside of searching for the best catch of the season. The Luckiest Lady in London did not disappoint in any of these regards. Not unlike Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, The Luckiest Lady in London plot revolves around Louisa’s search for a husband worth at least 5,000 pounds...

Review: The Counterfeit Mistress by Madeline Hunter

Review: The Counterfeit Mistress by Madeline Hunter The Counterfeit Mistress Author: Madeline Hunter Reviewer: Ang Rating: DNF What I’m Talking About: Let me start by saying this book has great potential, and I was super excited to get. Spies, Refugees, French versus English, Love, Seduction, a handsome viscount as our hero and a war-torn French refugee determined to do anything to protect herself and her father as the heroine. There is so much to work with, but the reality is I’ll likely never know if all the pieces came together to reach it’s potential or not. Don’t get me wrong, I tried. For more than a month I tried to get into this book. I picked...

Review: A Lady’s Secret Weapon by Tracey Devlyn

Review: A Lady’s Secret Weapon by Tracey Devlyn A Lady’s Secret Weapon Author: Tracey Devlyn Reviewer: Ang Rating: B, 3 Stars What I’m Talking About: A Lady’s Secret Weapon is the third title in the Nexus series, and I wish I had realized that going into the book. That knowledge would have saved me chapters of frustration because I could have either found the previous two books and caught up on the story line. OR known going in that a variety of relationships and other questions were going to be left unanswered, and I could have accept that and enjoyed what was in my hands. Tracey Devlyn gives us a well-written book with strong characters whose chemistry...

Review: The Wife He Always Wanted by Cheryl Ann Smith

Review: The Wife He Always Wanted by Cheryl Ann Smith The Wife He Always Wanted Author: Cheryl Ann Smith Reviewer: Ang Rating: B-, 3 Stars What I’m Talking About: I want to like Cheryl Ann Smith’s novels. She steps out of the box and mixes Victorian period romances with decent mysteries. My struggle is that in every book I’ve read of hers one side of the story or the other suffers, The Wife He Always Wanted was no exception. It starts out strong. Rough and rowdy cowboy shows up at the door rescue the struggling and starving maiden and sister of his best friend, except he isn’t a cowboy–he is a gentlemen, and off they go on an adventure to...

Review: Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon

Review: Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon Title: Doon Author: Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon Reviewer: Ang Rating: A+, 5 Stars What I’m Talking About: Anyone who reads my reviews knows I am a tough grader. It is rare for me give anything higher than a B. I have exacting standards when it comes to books. I want a strong storyline, great characters and most of all I want to be brought into the story. I am the queen of show me, don’t tell me, which was why when I read Doon and found myself completely smitten with it, I was hesitant to turn in my grade. Don’t get me wrong when I turned the last page...

Review: Behind His Blue Eyes by Kaki Warner

Review: Behind His Blue Eyes by Kaki Warner Behind His Blue Eyes Author: Kaki Warner Reviewer: Ang Rating: C What I’m Talking About: Let me start by saying I REALLY REALLY like Kaki Warner’s writing. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book I have read by her up to this point. I love the way she captures the Colorado frontier. I adore her handsome, haunted, brave heroes and her beautiful, feisty, smart heroines. She is a master of showing what is going on and capturing a moment or feeling. Her relationships are fun to read, the danger is real and I wait with baited breath for the kidnapping or other trouble to come and for the gallant hero...
