To Marry a Scottish Laird

My most recent review is up at All About Romance (although I’m late in posting this blog).

To Marry A Scottish Laird by Lynsay Sands

This book wins the award for the longest I have ever attempted to avoid having to read a review book. For roughly half a year I have been trying to put off forcing myself to finish reading To Marry a Scottish Laird. There was just nothing about it that called out to me to read it.”

New Blog: Best Books of 2014

Over at All About Romance we all picked our favorite books of 2014.

There were a lot of books this year that I really enjoyed but for my favorite book of 2014 I chose All Broke Down (review here) by Cora Carmack. The reason i think this won out over some of the other books I read, which were great as well, is that I think it deserves some recognition for being a stand-out options among the many New Adult novels.

Review: All I Want Is You by Toni Blake

My new review of Toni Blake’s book All I Want Is You is up over at All About Romance.

Although Toni Blake is one of my authors I automatically read, my enjoyment of All I Want Is You had its ups and downs. I started off really loving the book, but the middle got too screwball and cheesy. By the end, I felt better, but still couldn’t bring myself back up to how much I enjoyed the beginning.

Review: North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

My review of the classic book, North and South, is up over at All About Romance. 

This review is somewhat of a triple threat. I read the book, listened to the audiobook, and watched the BBC miniseries all together and all contributed to my enjoyment in their own way. First of all, let me gush. I loved this book. I adored this book. I want to tuck this book in next to me when I go to bed so I can cuddle it. By book, I mean the hero, Mr. Thornton, and by Mr. Thornton, I of course mean the dashing Richard Armitage playing the role in the BBC series.

Review: Stormy Persuasion

Also today, you can read my review of Stormy Persuasion by Johanna Lindsey over at All About Romance. It gets a C+ for a boring start but likable characters. 

I was nervous going in to this read. I have been the biggest Johanna Lindsey fan since I first started reading romance, but unfortunately, a lot of her newer books haven’t lived up to some of my classic favorites. Stormy Persuasion is the eleventh book in the Malory-Anderson series and, while it doesn’t reach the same level as Gentle Rogue or Love Only Once, it is a pleasurable read…
