Enraptured - Secrets of the Loch, #3

I have to admit that Camp's, Secrets of Loch, is a series that has not thrilled me, until now. Enraptured was well worth the wait and I will confess to having a deep love for the story. In many ways this book was like the perfect romance. I...

The Viscount Risks It All - A Prelude to a Kiss Novel, #7

Compared to the last novel that I had read from Knightley, the author, this story was a large improvement and yet I still feel like the romance was not as sturdy as I was hoping for. The romance itself seems to be a common missed trait amon...

One-Eyed Dukes Are Wild - A Dukes Behaving Badly Novel

The Spinster's Guide to Scandalous Behavior - The Seduction Diaries, #2

The Irresistible Rogue - Playful Brides, #4

Good Earl Gone Bad - The Lords of Anarchy, #2

The Highwayman - Victorian Rebels, #1

I will express how much I have missed such novels as The Highwayman as this novel returned to more elder traits such as the more classical romances than what I was expecting. I want to point out that this idea is a good thing. This year alo...

You're the Earl That I Want - The Lords of Worth, #3

Potentially I think that this book held a foundation to be a grand romance and instead I can't help, but to feel disappointed by the finished product. My biggest fault with this story is the bold fact that the hero and the heroine seemed to...

It Started with Paris

What first drew me into reading this novel was the title. Normally I enjoy books that have something to do with Paris as minor or as large as the detail and yet this was a story that did not work well for me. It's a shame too because the st...

Tremaine's True Love - True Gentlemen, #1

Where's the Romance? Once again I found myself drawn in-depth into a Burrowes novel that stands out as an historical read or perhaps better described as family saga rather than a true romance. This is always a little disappointing because I...

Circling the Sun
