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.

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 […]

I guess I should have guessed The Duke Alone was a holiday story by the synopsis but I totally missed that before starting to read.  This is very much Home Alone meets a Regency romance even to the description of the thieves out to rob the house during the holidays.  While I like both Home […]

A Stronger Impulse by Julie Cooper #JulieCooper  @QuillsQuartos @sophiarose1816 #KindleUnlimited

A gentleman experiences an apoplexy when he discovers his sister in a rake’s arms and a disowned young woman is his savior when his relatives are close to declaring him mad.  Lavished with drama and a touch of the gothic, this latest of Julie Cooper’s Pride and Prejudice variations raised my expectation and didn’t disappoint.

I was surprised to learn there would be an audio version of the new addition to the Rebels & Redcoats Saga.   Man of War is a prequel to the series.  I truly wish I had read the blurb before reading, so I would know the setting was about 20 years before The Tory which happens […]
