Review: The Summer Bride by Anne Gracie

The Summer Bride Author: Anne Gracie Reviewer: Ang Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I have loved the Chance Sisters series since I read The Autumn Bride in 2013, but of all the sisters, Daisy has always been my favorite.

Review: The Duke of Olympia Meets His Match by Juliana Gray

The Duke of Olympia Meets His Match Author: Juliana Gray Reviewer: Ang Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I believe I have read all of Ms. Gray’s novels that involve the Duke of Olympia.

Review: The Highlander’s Bride by Amanda Forester

The Highlander’s Bride Author: Amanda Forester Reviewer: Nima Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: There are something like a million books out there (ok, I’m exaggerating, but there are a lot) that share the title or some variation of The Highlander’s Bride. We like our Scottish heroes and imagining what’s under—or not under—their kilts.  Come […]
