Privateers, puzzles and kidnapping. Arrgh, Matey! The Other Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn is the third novel in the Rokesbys series and I’ve had such a blast with these stories. A witty, delightful heroine and a scoundrel with a soft-side await you as we set sail to Portugal!
Fans of historical fiction will want to grab the delightful anthology, A Christmas to Remember by Lisa Kleypas, Lorraine Heath, Megan Frampton and Vivienne Lorret. I devoured these stories set at Christmas and had a good time with them all.
I tend to be an eclectic reader and often follow my moods. After several reviews from fellow bloggers, I began the School for Dukes series by Lenora Bell and dove headfirst into What a Difference a Duke Makes. I had the most splendid time with this hero and feisty heroine.
It’s In His Kiss by Julia Quinn, narrated by Simon Prebble is the seventh Bridgerton novel and shares the romance of Hyacinth, the youngest and most outspoken of the siblings. A diary, hidden jewels and wicked banter made this tale delightful.
I have really been enjoying The Four Hundred series by Joanna Shupe. A Notorious Vow is the third book in the series, but can be read as a standalone. Greedy relations, a desperate young woman and a smexy recluse made for a deliciously entertaining read.
A feisty heroine, a troubled, soon to be Duke, and two orphaned girls made The Governess Game by Tessa Dare an addictive, swoon-worthy edition to the Girl Meets Duke series. Pirates, malaise, and lessons aided in delivering a heartwarming tale that left me wishing Tessa Dare released a new book every month. A girl can dream right?
Wicked and the Wallflower by Sarah MacLean is the book in her new Bareknuckle Bastards series. Set in Covent Gardens, this series will feature three siblings who run businesses in the darker parts of London. For fans, you’ll also see characters from her previous series. You’ll even get to visit such fine establishments as the Fallen Angel and Singing Sparrow!
I am continuing my journey with the Bridgertons’ on audio. When He Was Wicked by Julia Quinn shares the story of notorious rake, Michael Stirling, and Francesca Bridgerton. Quinn made me weep, laugh and hope as these characters suffered, stumbled and discovered.
A Scandalous Deal by Joanna Shupe is the second book in the Four Hundred series set in the glittering world of New York City’s Gilded Age. While this is a series, each book works completely as a standalone. In A Scandalous Deal Shupe gives us a feisty, modern thinking young woman and a forwarding thinking hero worthy of her. Sexy, relevant and low on drama A Scandalous Deal will transport you in time from the comfort of your reading chair.
