REVIEW: Hidden in the Mists

I really enjoy time slip stories, the mix of historical fiction with fantasy, when done right can just be enchanting. I really enjoyed Courtenay’s Tempted by the Runes where we see a character slip back to Viking times a la Outlander style. This story gives us a different kind of historical romance, one of a loveContinue reading “REVIEW: Hidden in the Mists”

REVIEW: Emergency Contact

“I’m happy to know you exist. And even though I feel like I screwed things up, I thought I’d let you know. And also to remind you that I exist also.” ————————————– Oh be still my heart.

REVIEW: An Offer from a Gentleman

Welp, season 2 of Bridgerton on Netflix has me hooked. I haven’t read any of the series, a first for me going straight to the show rather than the written version, but I wasn’t sure I would enjoy it. Season 2 was so sharp and witty, I wanted more so I decided to use someContinue reading “REVIEW: An Offer from a Gentleman”

REVIEW: The Hookup Plan

This was my first Farrah Rochon book, I know, crazy right? I was really drawn into this romcom because the characters were educated and well put together. There was no disorganized woman hoping for love, a trope that I hate, London is successful and cocky and kind. She was the kind of woman you want toContinue reading “REVIEW: The Hookup Plan”

REVIEW: A Lady’s Guide to Fortune Hunting

I’ll admit it Bridgerton has gotten me back into Regency era historical romance. I’ve really enjoyed recent stories from Evie Dunmore and Martha Waters who put a new spin on an Austen-esque opinionated women who aren’t living their life for just marriage. Our heroine in A Lady’s Guide to Fortune Hunting, Kitty, is not that.Continue reading “REVIEW: A Lady’s Guide to Fortune Hunting”
