I read another great book this week. This one is set in 1808 in England. Thomas has just returned from serving in the Napoleonic wars and is haunted by what he has witnessed the last three years. As he is out in the garden, a rare blue butterfly (see the cover) lands close by and the gardeners tell him something good will come his way soon.
Days later, when his butler comes to him asking for help for his niece who is in a bad spot, Thomas decides to help. When he meets Ruth, she is not what he expects though, and he wonders Continue reading
This newest story by Jennifer Moore was amazing. I’ve read a lot of her books, and they always make me smile. She writes great characters, fantastic settings, and believable romances that are usually set in the Regency period in the 1800’s.
Lady Helen Finds Her Song is set in 1813 in India. Lady Helen has just arrived in Calcutta with her mother and her new husband, Brigadier-General Stackhouse. She finds herself fascinated with the exotic splendors of India, but her fellow British expatriates Continue reading
Today I have not one…but TWO awesome books to tell you about. And they’re themed around Fools and Folly. Maybe that’s not a theme, but they’re close enough in spelling that I’ll go with that anyway. Continue reading
I always look forward to reading a new book by Jennifer Moore. In the past, I’ve reviewed Becoming Lady Lockwood and Lady Emma’s Campaign by her and both stories had characters I came to adore. Her newest regency romance was the same. In this one, Meg has sailed from colonial America (Charleston) to sacrifice herself upon the altars of the English ton in hopes of ensnaring a rich man to marry and save her merchant family from financial ruin during the time when England has just declared war upon America and is seizing merchant ships and forcing men into the English army.
Prince Rodrigo of Spain has also come (or fled, really) to England because his country is being ripped apart by Napoleon’s armies Continue reading
After the election ruckus we just endured, please rest assured that this campaign isn’t a political one. Whew!! I just finished reading this regency romance set in war torn Spain. This has a few of the same characters from Becoming Lady Lockwood, which I reviewed HERE, but it isn’t a sequel. It’s a stand-alone story. Continue reading
I’m super excited to be part of the For Elise Blog Tour. Sarah Eden is a very talented writer of regency romances. I’ve loved every book I’ve read of hers so far…and this brand new one didn’t disappoint. Continue reading
I read The Wicked Wager by Anya Wylde and thought I’d give it a shout out. This regency romance has great characters, a delightfully twisted plot, and wonderful wit that made me laugh out loud. That was a refreshing trio for a story set in stuffy, high society, 19th century England.
Lord Richard Hamilton – a gentleman rake who falls for Emma Grey
Miss Emma Grey – a mischievous beauty who hasn’t been courted because of her 3 big, scary brothers.
Duke of Arden – Emma’s uncle Continue reading
