Brews and Brawny Dudes: In Which I Talk About How Much I Loved Say Yes to the Marquess

Title: Say Yes to the MarquessSeries: Castles Ever AfterAuthor: Tessa DarePurchase: Amazon | B&N | iBooks | GooglePlay My ridiculous love for Tessa Dare’s writing is no secret. I’ve rambled semi-coherently about her novellas on this blog and managed to extend my fanaticism into other awesome book blogs. That said, I still feel obligated to add a disclaimer to this review: I’m a fangirl, plain and simple, and this review of Say Yes to the Marquess isn’t so much a review as it is just me talking about why I enjoy reading Tessa Dare. I’d been in a bit of a historical romance slump lately–one that started with a couple of Bridgerton novels and just kind of persisted through a few other books that I don’t think I’ll ever get around to reviewing. I was starting to feel sort of jaded and more than a little bored with historical romance….

Catch a Falling Heiress

Catch a Falling Heiress is the third in Laura Lee Guhrke’s An American Heiress in London series. This book starts off a little slowly with a prologue re-introducing readers to the male characters from the previous two books. And those who haven’t read the second book may not fully comprehend why they are setting out to destroy a man. It also seemed a little implausible to me that the heroine Linnet who moves in the same circles as the villain wouldn’t have known about the past scandal. She falls for his line of malarkey hook, line, and sinker. Oh, and why name a stubborn, willful woman after a tiny bird anyway? But I digress. Jack Featherstone, at least, is a hero worthy of that title. He saves her from her own bad judgment by offering himself up as a matrimonial sacrifice.  She continues her run of bad judgment by refusing…

Review: Romancing the Duke By Jessa Dare

  In the first in Tessa Dare’s captivating Castles Ever After series, a mysterious fortress is the setting for an unlikely love…      As the daughter of a famed author, Isolde Ophelia Goodnight grew up on tales of brave knights and fair maidens. She never doubted romance would be in her future, too.  The storybooks offered endless possibilities.      And as she grew older, Izzy crossed them off.      One by one by one.      Ugly duckling turned swan?      Abducted by handsome highwayman?      Rescued from drudgery by charming prince?             No, no, and…. Heh.      Now Izzy’s given up yearning for romance. She’ll settle for a roof over her head. What fairy tales are left over for an impoverished twenty-six-year-old woman who’s never even been kissed?    This one. I am not usually a fan of historical…

His palms are huge, his tanned skin marked with silver scars and calluses. My hands are smaller, slender, pale, and soft. “I still want to look at the footage.” I walk with Hawke toward the door. He shortens his stride to match mine. “I realize I’m not part of your team, but I want to help you.” I need to do something to protect him or I’ll go insane. “I’d appreciate that help.” Hawke gazes down at me. “Being part of my team…
