    The Bachelor Duke

    Move over Mr. Darcy, there is a new moody man in town! Who can resist a man who thinks he doesn’t want to marry? Remington Warren is everything you want in a romantic hero. Grumpy, moody, resistant to love -falling in love with the heroine at first sight. Typically I’m not a fan of love-at-first-sight tropes, but Cecilia does a great job showing character growth that makes it seem believable. I really enjoyed this debut novel written by Cecilia Rene. If there was ever a heroine I could identify with, it is Lady Olivia St. John. She loves to read and eat sweet. We are meant to be BFF’s! There…

    Bronte’s Mistress

    One of the most heartbreakingly honest books I have ever read depicting the life of a Victorian woman. I must admit that I had my reservations about reading Bronte’s Mistress because I had heard from my friends that it doesn’t end in neatly wrapped up happily ever after -which is true. While it is an emotionally difficult book to read, it is so beautifully written that I could not put it down. Anyone interest in Victorian-era life needs to grab this book. It gives such a unique perspective into the suffocating life that so many Victorian women were forced to lead. Yorkshire, 1843: Lydia Robinson—mistress of Thorp Green Hall—has lost…

    A Lady’s Guide To Mischief And Murder

    It’s no surprise that I’m pretty dedicated to reading historical romance, but I was feeling like I needed to shake things up a bit this summer. What better way to do that than with… a murder! Growing up my mom was a dedicated Murder She Wrote and Masterpiece Mystery fan. I remember laying in bed with the lights out, only able to faintly hear the tv in the living room. The swaying shadows on my bedroom wall from the trees outside, moaning sound effects from the show faintly making their way down the hall, and my very vivid nine-year-old imagination always got the best of me. (Seriously, those howling wind…

    Lakeshire Park Book Review

    An absolute must-read for any Jane Austen fan! Megan Walker’s debut novel Lakeshire Park has just enough whispering of Darcy and Elizabeth to leave me begging for more. From the first page, I was entranced. I didn’t just want to see what happened in the story. No. I needed to see what lie ahead for Amelia and her younger sister Clara. I’m pretty sure by the weird look my cat gave me when I closed the book, I gave an audible sigh of contentment at the end.  “You are being impertinent. I do not know you at all, sir. And honestly, after this interaction, I do not wish to.” -Lakeshire…

    The Ideal Countess

    “For a first ball, it was surpassing all of Alice’s expectations, which were quite considerable since she’d been hearing about the splendor of the Season for the entirety of her seventeen years.”Ah!
