The Warrior’s Prize by Claire Delacroix is the fourth and last book in the True Loves Brides series. Once again, I chose to listen to the audiobook narrated by the lovely Saskia Maarleveld. Her lilt is perfect for the narration and her voice just pulls me into this story. The Warrior’s Prize ended up being my favorite book in the series.
The Bride Behind the Curtain by Darcie Wilde is the first in the Regency Makeover a trilogy surrounding Helene Fitzgerald, Madelene Valmeyer, and Adele Edmundson. Three women have no intention of remaining wallflowers. Aided by the notorious novelist, Deborah Sewell, they form the Wallflower Pact. The Bride Behind the Curtain introduces us to Adele and I found it to be a quick, delightful introduction to the trilogy.
Jojo Moyes has been an author on my wish list forever it seems. When I saw trailers popping up for the movie Me Before You (trailers that I did not watch, because, well spoilers darling) I decided it was time to read Me Before You. After listening to a sample of the audio, I knew I had to listen. Quirky, romantic, heartbreaking and thought-provoking I devoured Me Before You.
Happily Bedded Bliss by Tracy Anne Warren is the second novel in her Regency series The Rakes of Cavendish Square. A damaged and dashing rake and an animal loving heroine are forced into marriage to save her reputation. It might just be the perfect match. Happily Bedded Bliss was a quick enjoyable read that delivered a sweet and believable romance.
Waking Amy by Julieann Dove is the first in a three book series called Amy. Dove provided a wonderful story of self-discovery. The tale that unfolds is one that I easily slipped into and devoured in two-sittings. Filled with heart, growth and promises Waking Amy is the perfect novel for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Stone Cold Cowboy by Jennifer Ryan is the fourth novel in her Montana Men series. Her brand of romance and suspense is addictive. I devoured Stone Cold Cowboy in one sitting. Ryan had me laughing, crying and swooning.
Hanover House by Brenda Novak is a prequel novella in the Hanover House Chronicles. Book one, Her Darkest Nightmare releases in September 2016. Hanover House is a romantic suspense with a dark bite to it. Novak weaves in the mind of a serial killer as she thrusts us into this thriller
The Loft by Bette Lee Crosby is the second book in the Memory House Collection. Crosby takes us back to the Memory House with Ophelia just in time for Annie and Oliver’s wedding. Packed with emotion, a little magical realism and introducing a new character The Loft transported me to the Memory House allowing me to smell the magical potpourri and visit with favorite characters.
I have read and enjoyed Jenni Moen’s contemporary romances and was eager to try her latest a paranormal romance. Dearborn is a standalone paranormal romance set in the world of Woodland Creek, Indiana. Woodland Creek is a town where the ley-lines attract all types of shifters and supernatural folks. Dearborn drew me in with its magical elements, secrets, romance and unique characters.
