REVIEW: Finding Napoleon

“I asked first. When no Justice is forthcoming, a man has the right to make his own.” ——————– I’ll admit, I am not a great expert on Napoleon or that particular time in European history.

REVIEW: Home Sweet Mess

I don’t read a ton of contemporary romance, but in the summer they make for great poolside reads. There’s just something about sunshine and happiness that go together.
