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…

Two Bonus Scenes

Just before my last book was published, I wrote a transitional scene set between the action of Lady Windermere’s Lover and The Duke of Dark Desires.  I offered it as a New Year’s gift to my newsletter subscribers. Now the scene, entitled  DENFORD AND WINDERMERE ON THE ROAD TOGETHER, is available to all on my website.  (Not that I want to discourage you from signing up for my newsletter — it’s the best way to be informed of my new releases and future plans. If you haven’t signed up yet you may do so here!) But that’s not all! If you’re curious about exactly how Henrietta Cazalet got her man and Oliver Bream became engaged to be married, I’ve posted OLIVER’S PROPOSAL, a deleted from The Duke of Dark Desires. I’ve posted additional material about several of my earlier books, details and inks to be found on the individual book pages.

Kisses, She Wrote (Prince Catchers #1.5) by Katharine Ashe

“Let the fantasy begin.”  Oh, how I love this story! And what a surprise, that, because I absolutely loathed Charles Camlann Westfall, the Earl of Bedwyr, in I Married the Duke and could not, for the life of me, understand how this vile man could be deserving of his own story. Well, I was wrong about him, and I am so glad I was!! Blurb… Handsome as sin and scandalously rakish, Cam Westfall, the Earl of Bedwyr, is every young lady’s wickedest dream. Shy wallflower Princess Jacqueline of Sensaire knows this better than anyone, because her dreams are full of the breathtaking earl’s kisses. And not only her dreams—her diary, too. But when Cam discovers the maiden’s not-so-maidenly diary, will her wildest Christmas wishes be fulfilled in its pages . . . or in his arms? My thoughts… I agree with other reviewers who said that this novella doesn’t read…

The Immortal Who Loved Me by Lynsay Sands

The kicker comes when Sherry learns that one of the vamps on the bad guys’ trail may be her life mate. Her head says it’s impossible.

But mind-blowing chemistry and instinct don’t lie. They tell him something else too-that Sherry’s connection to the immortal world goes deeper than she knows. And that she’s in the kind of danger only Basil can save her from-if she’ll just trust him, now and forever…   Sherry was muttering to herself as she…

Planning to Live in the Moment

Living in the moment has its pros and cons. I have been trying to do more of it as a way of balancing my chronic need for planning, and this week’s events have provided plenty of fodder for me to practice. A few random and totally unexpected things have happened to me this week that have flooded me with so many ‘feel-goods’ that I’m not apprehensive in sharing some of the negative that came along with the mix. A singular moment of ‘feel-bads,’ for whatever reason, can shatter the placid pond of contentment, so I have a tendency to go all Michonne on pessimism when it rears its ugly head in my life, and I do my best to keep moving forward, no matter what, even if it involves a change of plans. I finally submitted my first manuscript for traditional publication consideration, and now the countdown has begun. My…

I Married the Duke (Prince Catchers #1) by Katharine Ashe

There were moments I loved this story, and moments I wanted to scream because things were taking so long to work out, but all in all I Married the Duke is an entertaining tale! Blurb… Arabella Caulfield, one of three orphaned sisters, has clung to an ancient gypsy prophecy as the only way to save her family from endless heartbreak. Now she has twelve days to reach a remote French castle and fulfill her destiny: to marry a prince. Along the way, Arabella meets Lucien Westfall, decorated naval captain and the new Duke of Lycombe. She thought he was a pirate. He thought she was a governess. Two wrongs have never made such a scandalously perfect right. My thoughts… It’s interesting that as I read other reviews of this book, many people loved the beginning and hated the end, saying that things dragged. I feel just the opposite! The beginning…
