Envy and Favor by Faye Hall @FayeHall79

Envy and Favor by Faye Hall @FayeHall79

Their fathers are business partners in a club with shady goings on, but they have grown up in two different worlds.  Will their love withstand parental expectation and a dark plot of revenge?  I am always eager to try a new to me author particularly when her spicy historical romance is set in 1865 Australia. […]

An earnest new first officer, a laid-back captain, a sketchy group of passengers in an older space shuttle on a tourist space flight… what could go wrong?  If you started hearing the theme song to a certain popular TV show about a castaway boat on a deserted isle then you aren’t far off the beam.  […]

Was anyone else ever curious about those eight years spent apart for Jane Austen’s second chance romance pair in Persuasion?  Or maybe what happened next for them and the other characters?  How about their time before the big break up?  A new to me author, Lyndsay Constable answers all those questions with her heartwarming, reflective […]

The Pink Carnation series edges ever nearer to the final book and in this latest, we get to see the Pink Carnation’s own second in command stepping reluctantly into the limelight for this latest spying adventure slash treasure hunt from Paris to Bath and into the English countryside.  Full of frolicksome humor, a pinch of […]

Cinderella Masquerade by LaQuette @LaQuetteWrites #HarlequinDesire @HarlequinBooks @sophiarose1816

A serious-minded doctor of psychology dons mask and gown for one evening to be someone she’s not and captivates an easy going wealthy rancher who is determined to know the woman behind the mask.  LaQuette is steadily becoming a go-to author for me when it comes to contemporary romance with her heart-felt situations, engaging characters, […]

Kiss Me Good Night, Major Darcy by Georgina Young-Ellis @GYoungEllis @MerytonPress #KindleUnlimited @sophiarose1816

Kiss Me Good Night, Major Darcy by Georgina Young-Ellis @GYoungEllis @MerytonPress #KindleUnlimited @sophiarose1816

Jane Austen’s classic goes to war in this WWII variation of Pride & Prejudice.  I love variations and retellings of Austen’s original stories, but particularly when they are dropped into a different time period and the author takes the time to create an authentic backdrop for beloved, familiar characters. Kiss Me Goodnight, Major Darcy begins […]
