So what have I read lately? Well let me tell you! First we have The soldiers scoundrel by Cat Sebastian. Now this is the first M/M regency romance I have read and that being so I found it to be good. However in other aspects I found it to be lacking. I needed more sex ( I always do) and less “struggle” which actually made me feel like like both men were not struggling with their feelings for each other but actually hated each other at times. The love scenes while hot could have been more.I needed more dirty talk! Jack had it going for a while… Oliver was too timid at times and that just didn’t do it for me. While in the end Jack’s sister gave her blessing as did Oliver’s which I mean for that time? Hello! that just made my heart happy!
At $1.99 on amazon it was well worth the read
So my next two books are By Sabrina Jefferies The Danger of desire which will be released on November 22nd and I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy . This is the third book in the sinful suitor series , and the first book I’ve read in the series (I bought the others!) Warren Cory Marquess of Knightford has made it his mission to protect Miss Delia Trevor. from roaming the gaming hells . Delia is on mission to find the lord with the sun tattoo who drove her brother to suicide causing her and her family to lose everything.
This book was so my catnip! Warren was a wicked delight from start to finish the tension between the characters was wonderful and even the little bit of mystery was good and worked for me. It was a sexy romp from start to finish and I sad to see it end . Delia was a very good heroine she was without being an alpha but yet she was soft enough that it balanced out. I loved that she dressed like a boy to go to the gaming hells but Warren knew she was woman right away, and made a bit of sport of out of tormenting her.
Next is The Heiress and the Hothead This one is going for $1.99 and comes our on November 28th. Let me say this first The title… I meh on. I mean its okay but what sold me was the blurb and the author.
This was also an advance copy so with out giving too much away here it goes.
Our Heroine owns a mill and is an american (oh yes mmy friends a lady mill owner!) and our hero writes stories exposing the mills for how awful they are. Our hero mistakes the lady for someone else and kisses her and sparks fly! Seriously these two argue like champs but it works for and our Heroine is an alpha which normally does not work for me. But this time it did, she was a strong enough force in her own right that it did not over shadow the Hero. While the book was delightful and the arguments were well placed and not over the top or annoying like they can be, here is what I didn’t like.
The book was short. Yes it was a novella but it was good and I want good books to last and keep going on. secondly the sex scene ( there was also not enough sex for me) was oddly placed, timed and just all around wtf are you two thinking. I couldn’t get into it and really, I wanted no part of it and was happy that it ended quickly.
Overall I enjoyed it and for $1.99 it’s worth the quick read.
I hope you enjoyed my first post! I look forward to reading any comments you might have . Happy reading!
