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: “American Squire” (New Camelot #5) by Sierra Simone

This short story ties together the worlds of New Camelot and Thornchapel by following a former White House assistant on a mysterious errand to England. The actual interactions portrayed between Ryan and Sidney are both sexy and sweet, as appropriate, and I’d happily read more about their burgeoning relationship. What elevates this story from sexyContinue reading “Review: “American Squire” (New Camelot #5) by Sierra Simone”

Review: Cards of Love: The Moon (New Camelot #4) by Sierra Simone

This short and sexy follow-up to the New Camelot trilogy does much to explain Merlin’s role in the whole situation. It portrays two very different relationships across time in a way that also shows off how Simone uses point-of-view to amplify her storytelling. I do have some questions about the off-screen events that bring MerlinContinue reading “Review: Cards of Love: The Moon (New Camelot #4) by Sierra Simone”

Review: American King (New Camelot #3) by Sierra Simone

I honestly did not expect this book to affect me as much as it did. I tore through it in a single afternoon, enjoying the spring air on my front porch, and had to go inside for fresh tissues twice. At about the 90% mark, I texted a friend to rage about what I assumedContinue reading “Review: American King (New Camelot #3) by Sierra Simone”

Review: Harvest of Sighs (Thornchapel #3) by Sierra Simone

All books have a dark moment, right before things get better. This book, the third in the Thornchapel series, ends in the ultimate dark moment. Relationships were not great during this book. They were intense and hopeful and painful and tragic, making me fall in love with each of the characters. And now so manyContinue reading “Review: Harvest of Sighs (Thornchapel #3) by Sierra Simone”

Review: American Prince (New Camelot #2) by Sierra Simone

I like Greer Galloway. She’s an okay character. She’ll do well as the First Lady (once she ever gets to fulfill the role). Her history(ies) with Ash and Embry were intriguing and their future will, I’m sure, be equally so. But she’s got absolutely nothing on Embry Moore. The history between Embry and Ash isContinue reading “Review: American Prince (New Camelot #2) by Sierra Simone”

Review: Feast of Sparks (Thornchapel #2) by Sierra Simone

I devoured books 2 and 3 in this series in a single day (plus a few hours because it was VERY late when I finally went to bed). On the one hand, tangling apart my thoughts of each book might be difficult. But this book ends in a stunning revelation, a different sort of painContinue reading “Review: Feast of Sparks (Thornchapel #2) by Sierra Simone”

Review: American Queen (New Camelot #1) by Sierra Simone

I adore Arthurian literature, but not all of it. Lancelot has especially never been a particular favorite, for much the same reason Simone explains in this book: He’s a fanfic self-insert by the French so they could play with chivalry in a set of tales too old for such a relatively modern social construct. IContinue reading “Review: American Queen (New Camelot #1) by Sierra Simone”

Review: A Lesson in Thorns (Thornchapel #1) by Sierra Simone

I bought this ebook months ago, and for the life of me, I couldn’t remember why. The cover description was intriguing, but not my typical fare. It seemed a bit too throw-back Gothic for me. So, I glanced at a few online reviews, and one of them complained about bisexual characters. Who cares why IContinue reading “Review: A Lesson in Thorns (Thornchapel #1) by Sierra Simone”
