    Flirtation and Folly

    A timeless story of self-realization while learning to navigate the shrewd world of polite society. Flirtation and Folly is a story that we can all identify with at some point in our life. Having dreams that you are made for more. Wanting to fit in with the “cool” kids. Wishing you were something other than what you are. No matter your history, we can all identify with Marianne. If you read this for a romance, it might leave you wanting a bit more. There is a touch of romance but it was much less than I was expecting. However, as a story of self awaking it uniquely shows Marinanne’s transformation…

    The Tobacconist’s Wife

    A truly emotional read, The Tobacconist’s Wife is an epic story of second chances and holding fast to the belief that love conquers all. For any one that enjoys a romance that gives you hope that soul mates will find each other, this is your book! There is a trigger warning needed for abuse -so be warned before you read if that is an issue for you. However, this does play a crucial part in the story. Once again, we realize how little choice Victorian women had in choosing their own path. Marriage did not always bring love and happiness but it could provide security -sometimes a very high cost.…

    The Gentleman And The Thief

I’m not sure how we got here, but I do know there are more fantastic books releasing that we need to talk about. Today I’m very excited to be featuring The Gentleman And The Thief. If you are looking to breathe a little fresh air into your historical fiction reading -this book will do it! Included in the story are alternating chapters of two penny dreadfuls.

    The Light at Wyndcliff

    Welcome back for another review! I’m so excited about this release, so let’s jump right into the review. I found Sarah Ladd’s newest book to be a breath of fresh air in the world of historical romance. Secrets, mysterious lights in the dark, and family division create so much more than a simple love story. The Light at Wyndcliff, while a romance at heart, simultaneously explores the timeless issue of family loyalty. I was hooked into this story from the first few pages. I found both the hero and heroine to be likable characters that were easy to sympathize with. Both find themselves in unique situations – Liam has inherited…

    Highland Renegade

    Was anyone else obsessed with the musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers when they were younger? This first book in the Children of the Mist Series reminded me of that movie -in a good way. So many handsome Highlanders! I can’t wait to follow the rest of the series and see what happens to all these Highland brothers. This first book in the series follows the story of Ian MacGregor, leader of the clan, and Emily, the Dowager Countess of Woodhaven. I found them to be likeable characters with great chemistry between them. I really enjoyed the attempted murder mystery that weaved its way through the story. It was fast…

    Three Ways to Celebrate Jane Austen During Gothtober

    As Austen fans, we hardly need an excuse to celebrate more Jane goodness. However, I always get a little spring in my step when October rolls around since it means it time to enjoy all the Gothic goodness of Northanger Abbey (at least during the proper season). Forget pumpkin spice latte’s and Sweater Weather… I’ll take more Mr. Tilney, please. As the world around us quickly switches to virtual events, Chawton House is not to be left behind. I must say they have been one of the highlights of 2020, for me. Quickly adapting to the new normal, they have been offering so many fantastic virtual events. In celebration of…

    Elizabeth OHG Audiobook

    Welcome back! So first off, I have a confession. I am not an audiobook lover. In the past when I have tried to listen to audiobooks, I am like the meme… Oh, LOOK!!! A Squirrel!!! I lose focus way too easily. However, Elizabeth OHG has been in my TBR pile for quite a while now so I decided to take a chance and give the audiobook a try. I have nothing but praise for Elizabeth OHG! Before I get into the heart of the audio book. the narrator can really make or break the experience for me. Elizabeth Grace’s narration is superb. Her voice is calming with enough range to…

    Hello book friends! Welcome back to the blog. It is a busy book week over here with lots of goodness to share. There is something about the weather turning cooler that makes me just want to snuggle up under a blanket with a cup of tea in hand and a book on my lap. Today I’m excited to share with you an excerpt from Shelley and the Unknown Lady. This book will leave you weeping -so be warned. But still, I highly recommend reading it. Just like Bronte’s Mistress, this book is written with the intent to give voice to the women who have been silenced for so many years.…

    Misleading A Duke

    Misleading A Duke Spotlight I was positively thrilled to have to chance to be apart of another A. S. Fenichel blog tour. The Wallflowers of West Lane is becoming one of my favorite series as it masterfully walks a fine line being real-life issues and a fantastic happily ever after. There is still life after a tragedy.
