#TBT: Mad About the Duke

This book, Mad About the Duke, is the story inspired my upcoming Bachelor Chronicles spin-off, Mad about the Major. Here is where the Duke of Parkerton finally meets his match. But the wait for Parkerton’s story took some time. He first appeared at the end of This Rake of Mine, chastising his younger brother, Mad Jack Tremont, to get out of jail and go marry Miranda. I sort of fell in love with him the moment he stepped on the page. He is so stuffy and ducal and proper. He just needed his life turned upside down. Does anyone else sense a theme here? I just love taking a perfectly happy bachelor hero and turn his life inside out with the introduction of one of my madcap heroines. Elinor, Lady Standon isn’t exactly madcap (she’s actually a lot like Parkerton) but she is desperate to marry and she wants nothing…

Fat Girl Walking review

I am definitely not the right demographic for Brittany Gibbons’ new book Fat Girl Walking. I am far more comfortable with the likes of Erma Bombeck and Phyllis Diller. I know. Scary, right? Those long-ago women chronicled the day-to-day travails of suburban housewives with less profanity but also, I must admit, with less honesty. Diller built a career by putting down her own appearance. Gibbons too starts down that path, describing how being overweight negatively affected her life. I found the first half of her book really difficult to read. To me, it seemed her weight was the least of her problems. The photos on her website reveal a stunning woman. Dealing with her father’s behavior after he suffered a traumatic brain injury sounded much harder. And sadder. This is supposed to be a humorous book, but I was not laughing. It is when Gibbons gets to the point in…

Love in the Time of Scandal by Caroline Linden Series: Scandalous #3 Published by Avon Books Release Date: May 26th, 2015 Genres: Historical Romance Pages: 384 Format: eARC Source: Publisher Goodreads Amazon • Barnes & Noble • Kobo I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. The third book in a deliciously sexy series from USA Today bestselling and RITA award winning author Caroline Linden, in which an utterly shocking book–Ffty Shades of Grey for the Regency era– has all of London talking and gives more than one young miss a mind for scandal.   Penelope Weston does not like Benedict Lennox, Lord Atherton. He may be the suave and charming heir to an earl, as well as the most handsome man on earth, but she can’t forget…

Sinful Rewards 11 – Lona’s Dress

Lona is always impeccably dressed and her appearance in Sinful Rewards 11 is no exception. Here’s a snippet… *** I dress in black G-string panties and the red silk robe Cyndi forced me to wear to the English department’s senior year “pimps and hoes” party two years ago. The garment is poorly crafted and shamefully slutastic, but I need something I can remove without mussing my hair. This robe is the best choice. The doorbell rings. A black ball of fur streaks across the floor, dashing into the bedroom I share with Hawke. “It’s Lona, Gisele,” I tell my nervous cat. “She’s a friend.” I gaze through the peephole and inwardly groan, wondering if Lona will be a friend for long. The escort is her usual immaculate self, perfect hair, perfect makeup, and from what I see, perfectly dressed. I open the door and my trepidation increases. She’s wearing a…
