    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…

    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…

    Shelley and the Unknown Lady

    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 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.

    A Trace of Deceit

    Smoke swirling around the darkened doorstep creating mysterious shadows. A carriage racing down the uneven cobblestone street creating a sense of urgency. The distant echoing of the lamplighter’s steps fading into eerie silence. A sudden and unexplained murder. Yes, please! After reading Diane Freeman’s newest novel (and thoroughly enjoying it), I thought maybe I needed to start exploring the world of Victorian mystery. I opened up my email and saw a message asking if I would like to review A Trace of Deceit by Karen Odden. It was an offer too tempting to resist. I am now officially a Victorian mystery lover! A Trace of Deceit is itself a painting…

    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…
