"Heroes Are My Weakness" By: Susan Elizabeth Phillips Review

Heroes Are My Weakness By: Susan Elizabeth Phillips Synopsis The dead of winter. An isolated island off the coast of Maine. A man. A woman. A sinister house looming over the sea ... He's a reclusive writer whose macabre imagination creates chilling horror novels. She's a down-on-her-luck actress reduced to staging kids' puppet shows.

Review of ONCE MORE MY DARLING ROGUE: book #2 Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James by Lorraine Heath

I'm not always a fan of the amnesia trope, but I felt that Ms. Heath did a great job using it. I really liked Drake and Ophelia's love story.  There was a lot of great love/hate moments and their chemistry lit up the pages. I didn't agree with Drake's choice to keep Ophelia in the dark of her true identity, yet I could understand why he wanted to take her down a few notches...but being able

I felt that the romance between Isabella and Anthony was rushed and

I missed the cover reveal for Julia Quinn’s upcoming novel, The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy, so I thought I’d share my thoughts/predictions about this novel instead: Sir Richard Kenworthy has less than a month to find a bride. He knows he can’t be too picky, but when he sees Iris Smythe-Smith hiding behind her cello at her family’s infamous musicale, he thinks he might have struck gold. She’s the type of girl you don’t notice until the second—or third—look, but there’s something about her, something simmering under the surface, and he knows she’s the one. Iris Smythe–Smith is used to being underestimated. With her pale hair and quiet, sly wit she tends to blend into the background, and she likes it that way. So when Richard Kenworthy demands an introduction, she is suspicious. He flirts, he charms, he gives every impression of a man falling in love, but she...
