Review: Daring Miss Danvers by Vivienne Lorret

Oh my, how I adore books that make me laugh out loud! And Daring Miss Danvers made me adore it many times over. Such witty writing I was treated to. This was my first book by Vivienne Lorret and I am suddenly very happy that I have the next in The Wallflower Wedding Series sitting on my Nook. Books like this are why I am falling more and more in love with historical romance. This is a very fast-paced story. I read it in just a couple hours and it was a perfect mood-lifter. Sweet and enjoyable. Our hero and heroine are perfect together. Emma and Oliver have known each other since childhood (Oliver happens to be Emma's brother's best friend). Everyone around then have always known they've had chemistry: everyone except them, that is. Basically, Oliver needs his inheritance, which is in control of his very proper grandmother, to...

Review: Daring Miss Danvers by Vivienne Lorret

Daring Miss Danvers  by Vivienne Lorret It's all fun and games . . . until someone falls in love. Oliver Goswick, Viscount Rathburn, needs money—and soon. With time ticking away and his inheritance held hostage until he's properly wed, Rathburn's slim options point to a single solution: a faux engagement. In need of the perfect bride, he knows of only one candidate: his best friend's wallflower sister. The plan seems flawless, except for one problem . . . He can't help falling in love with her. Poised, polished Emma Danvers knows nothing good can come of Rathburn's scheme. Spending the next two months engaged in a mock courtship is not what she'd imagined for her final season. Yet, charmed by his roguish ways and the inexplicable hammering he causes in her heart, she accepts his challenge. For Emma, keeping the secret seemed easy when it was just a game ....

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

Review of THE EARL'S MISTRESS by Liz Carlyle

Liz Carlyle has been a favorite author and an auto-buy for me for many years now, but sadly, THE EARL'S MISTRESS isn't one of her better books. The writing wasn't bad, it was more that I really didn't like either Isabella nor Anthony.  I can't put my finger on what it was about them, but they just didn't work for me. I felt that the romance between Isabella and Anthony was rushed and
