I am proud to announce my next Favorite Book of 2019! This couple captured my heart and they will capture yours too. I am participating in a blog tour hosted by St. Martin's Press, in honor of this book's release date (yesterday!). Please read on for my review, buy links, and author information. Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo If you have never fallen in love with a highlander, you will once you've finished this book! I blushed, I sighed, I swooned...it was a roller coas
Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo I have been reading Paula Quinn's books for years now, and while I liked the her first few books, this is the first of her newer ones where I truly feel she is having a comeback on my bookshelf! I loved, loved, LOVED the history tie-ins with this book, as she has done with all of her others, and the side characters are just as interesting as the main characters. The dogs alone win me over - Ula and Goliath are the sweetest! She has truly creat
Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo Lily Blackwood keeps on writing 5-star books, and if she keeps this up, I'm going to have to do a post on my blog just to sing her praises. It will be mandatory. I have to say that this book is my favorite of the three books in the Highland Warrior series, and with all three being phenomenal books, I thought it would be hard to pick a favorite. The reason this one wins is the fact that it gives me a new book boyfriend, Cullen Braewick, who
Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo This was a fun, engaging story set in London, with a couple of rogue Highlanders thrown in the mix to make things interesting. Having read the previous three books in the Untamed Highlanders series, I knew I would enjoy the banter between the main characters and hearing about our previous heroes and heroines again. This took me back to Sabrina York's first book in the series, which captured my attention and heart, and I know it will capture yo
Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo This is a rare book in that it has four novellas inside and I actually enjoyed all of them! In general, novellas are not my thing. They try to shove too much into too little of a space, and things just get too rushed. Happily, each of these short stories are enjoyable and are just the right length to leave me satisfied. Below I have written some small reviews of each: How A Lass Wed A Highlander – Lecia Cornwall Having read several Lecia C
Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo This book gave me a reading first: I cried over the death of a character. Oh sure, I have cried while reading a book before, but usually it has been because of a terrible betrayal or heartbreak and is often accompanied by violent throwing of said book across the room. I became so ridiculously attached to the characters in The Rogue, that the loss of even one almost threw me into hysterics. It shows a true gift of writing when an author can tur
Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo Once again Lily Blackwood has written a swoonworthy romance full of secrets, mystery, and true love! I fell in love right along with the two main characters, making me wish their story didn't end with this book but continued on in the next. Though this book had a darker tone than the first book in the series, it was highly enjoyable, and I read late into the night with unstoppable eagerness to see how everything would turn out.
Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo This is my favorite installment in the Oxenburg Princes series! Nikolai is lovable, and Ailsa is completely relatable to a modern day woman. I felt a kinship with both, and it made the story fly by. Entirely enjoyable.
Lady Ailsa Mackenzie is an independent woman, running her father's Scottish castle as she sees fit. When her grandmother has a guest from Oxenburg, a royal duchess, Ailsa begins a correspondence with the woman's odious grandso
Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo This is the fourth book in Jennifer Haymore's Highland Knights series, and it did not disappoint. If you haven't read the other books, you can still enjoy the story. If you're familiar with the series, you'll be excited to see old characters appear periodically throughout the book. There was romance, adventure, and battle scenes - a little bit of everything to satisfy a variety of readers.
Emilia Featherstone has run away from her abusive an
Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo Another fantastic book from Kerrigan Byrne! I loved the characters, the scenery, the conflict - it made for a thrilling and engrossing tale. I began reading it at the beginning of a five-hour plane ride and was finished before the wheels touched the ground.
Mena St. Vincent was committed to an insane asylum by her abusive husband, and when she finally escapes, aided by some friends, she must go into hiding. Still recovering from her injurie
Amazon Kindle Barnes and Noble Nook Kobo **I received a free copy via NetGalley for an honest review.** Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite fairy tales, and scarred heroes and heroines always have a special place in my heart. This story had that Beauty and the Beast feel, except in this case, both have scars and need healing. It was a very lovely take on the classic fairy tale theme. Fiona "Fia" McLeod has had scars and a limp most of her life, so she has been coddled
Amazon Paperback | Amazon Kindle Barnes and Noble Paperback | Barnes and Noble Nook Kobo **I received a free copy via NetGalley for an honest review.** I really enjoyed this book! In particular, Ms. Blackwood did a great job developing the characters and the plot in such a way that neither got lost as the story progressed. There was a gradual romance with a past murder that has lead to a present-day revenge scheme. We also have an ailing father with an "evil" stepmother, as w
