Review: The Sugared Game (Will Darling Adventures #2) by K.J. Charles

Read my review of the Will Darling Adventures #1, Slippery Creatures. Charles has such a fantastic gift for crafting worlds that I want to fall into, populated by characters I want to befriend. In fact, beyond the plot and romance of this particular novel, one of the elements I love best about it is theContinue reading “Review: The Sugared Game (Will Darling Adventures #2) by K.J. Charles”

Review: London Lovers Series by Sierra Simone

“The Seduction of Molly O’Flaherty” (Book 0.5) After meeting these characters in Simone’s Markham Hall series, I was intrigued enough to follow them to London for their romance saga. Like it says on the tin, this story is not necessary for the following books. However, it does an excellent job of introducing Molly and SilasContinue reading “Review: London Lovers Series by Sierra Simone”

Review: Markham Hall Series by Sierra Simone

The Awakening of Ivy Leavold (Book 1) Here’s the old-school Gothic erotic romance I expected when I started Simone’s Thornchapel series! An innocent young woman finds herself helpless and adrift in a new home, at the mercy of a mysterious and figure who instantly captivates her attention. Despite Simone’s effortless narrative that elevates the interactionsContinue reading “Review: Markham Hall Series by Sierra Simone”

Review: Two Rogues Make a Right (Seducing the Sedgwicks #3) by Cat Sebastian

Read my review of Seducing the Sedgwicks book 1, It Takes Two to Tumble. Read my review of Seducing the Sedgwicks book 2, A Gentleman Never Keeps Score. Some romance is full of angst and pain and hardship before a happily ever after. And some romance is full of all of those things in theContinue reading “Review: Two Rogues Make a Right (Seducing the Sedgwicks #3) by Cat Sebastian”

Review: Secrets of Charlotte Street Series by Scarlett Peckham

The Duke I Tempted (Book 1) The time period of this book was a bit earlier than the historical romance I’ve been reading, but I’m so pleased I took a chance on it anyway. Westmead and Poppy stole my heart, separately and then together. The arc of their relationship surprised me at every turn, butContinue reading “Review: Secrets of Charlotte Street Series by Scarlett Peckham”

Review: The Threefold Tie by Aster Glenn Gray

This short novel is perfect for anyone looking for a historical romance with lovely character development and interaction. I thoroughly enjoyed each of these characters, individually and together. The point-of-view switches and overlapping timelines show the perspective of each lead and their developing arcs to excellent effect. This book is a quick read that doesn’tContinue reading “Review: The Threefold Tie by Aster Glenn Gray”

Review: Behind These Doors (Radical Proposals #1) by Jude Lucens

Though it focuses on a single relationship between two characters, this book made me fall in love with multiple characters across multiple relationships, all of whom had their own detailed lives and agency. Lucens balances an intricate drama of love, friendship, polyamory, and heartbreak in one of the best historical romances I’ve read to date.Continue reading “Review: Behind These Doors (Radical Proposals #1) by Jude Lucens”

Review: Slippery Creatures (Will Darling Adventures #1) by K.J. Charles

The bad news: This book does not end with a happily ever after. The good news: Because it’s book 1 of a trilogy! Will and Kim have fabulous and intense chemistry that only enhances the plot they’re embroiled in, and I look forward to seeing their relationship develop throughout the next two books. As always,Continue reading “Review: Slippery Creatures (Will Darling Adventures #1) by K.J. Charles”

Review: Thieves’ Honor (Wizards of London #1) by Jamaila Brinkley

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. I devoured this book so quickly, and with such enjoyment, that I forgot to take any notes for my review! Brinkley’s debut novel features romance, magic, and mystery set in historical London. She weaves together the tropes from multiple genresContinue reading “Review: Thieves’ Honor (Wizards of London #1) by Jamaila Brinkley”

Review: Enlightened (Enlightenment #3) by Joanna Chambers

The finale to this trilogy does an excellent job of concluding plot threads from previous books on multiple levels. David and Murdo have grown as people and grown closer together, but some roadblocks (internal and external) still stand in the way of their happily every after. When both of them must travel to London, theyContinue reading “Review: Enlightened (Enlightenment #3) by Joanna Chambers”
