    To Pleasure a Prince

    I was actually pretty damn excited for this one. I read the Royal Brotherhood books out of order, this one being the last that I got around to reading. When I read the synopsis I was all over it! I love Beauty and the Beast type stories and I found Marcus charming. He despises people and parties, he’s competitive, strong willed, protective and unafraid of social consequences – but deep down he still has a soft side and treats the women in his life like queens. It’s your classic story of the gorgeous and witty socialite that falls for the aloof but handsome bad boy with a dark past. Regina…

    When the Scoundrel Sins

    Wow, is it hot in here? I think I need to open a window because my goodness was this a steamy read. When the Scoundrel Sins is the second book in the Capturing the Carlisles series and it is certainly a hot and heavy romance. The characters definitely have a lot of chemistry, the strong-willed bluestocking meeting her match with an impish rakehell. I loved the sass and teasing between the characters throughout the novel that kept their romance sizzling, straddling that line between childhood friends and potentially something more. I was extremely happy with how the book discussed marriage, and in particular a pesky piece of common law called…

    What To Do With A Duke

    When it comes to historical romance, I look for one of two things: one, a compelling love story with some scenes that make me blush and fan myself; or two, a light and fluffy clean romance, sometimes with a touch of humor. What I demand from all historical romances is for both the romance and the setting to be believable. I’ve started to wonder if my standards are too high. When I went into this book, with the cute cover and hints at a curse, I figured this one might fall on the fluffy side of the spectrum (the cat on the cover may have influenced this assumption). I was…

    My Darling, My Disaster

    I honestly struggled to finish this book and it was such a damn shame because I actually wanted to like it, I really did. The writing style is polished and the editing is good, I have absolutely no complaints there. The characters are animated and have personality, the main plot about Lana’s escape and her attempts to investigate the traitors is intriguing, and there was genuine heat between the main characters that developed at a good pace between the two leads—so where did things go wrong? The best I can come up with was simply that it was a combination of several small problems that eventually became big problems for…

    If the Duke Demands

    Oh how I wanted to rate this so much higher, but I just couldn’t after the way that it ended. The book starts off good, and I mean really good. The two main characters are charming and seem to actually have some good chemistry. The physical tension between the two of them is hard to ignore and builds up at a steady rate throughout the novel. Sebastian was a total dreamboat and I was really digging the story up until the halfway point. What went wrong? It was a couple of things. The first thing that started to nag at me was how repetitive certain plot points started to get,…
