I don't read a ton of PNR - not for any real reason, it just tends to run under my radar; I plan to rectify this in 2021 - but when I saw the description for Big Bad Wolf by Suleikha Snyder, I knew I needed to get my hands on a copy. And once I did, I was not disappointed!
I'm such a sucker for confident business women - determined to do what they love despite all the odds - and insecure but hardworking lords who are all too aware of their responsibilities. That's what you get with The Heiress Gets a Duke.
This is an absolutely freaking adorable intial-misunderstanding-to-ongoing-antagonism-to-maybe-I-misjudged-you-to-oh-crap-I-love-you romance! Henley and Graeme are super cute (I think I'm legitimately in love with Graeme?) and Henley's sister Walsh and would-be admirer Nikolai are wonderfully memorable.
I dove straight into Someday My Duke Will Come right after finishing the first book in the series, A Good Duke is Hard to Find. I loved Quincy Nesbitt as soon as he was introduced in A Good Duke and was excited for his pairing with Lady Clara Ashford - his best friend's cousin. And once I started reading, I didn't want to put it down.
So Alyssa Cole is just a fantastic writer and there were parts of How to Catch a Queen that were absolutely fabulous, but unfortunately there were also aspects that made it hard to enjoy fully.
Oh my stars! This book! I haven't both laughed and cried so much while reading a book...ever? Written in the Stars was funny, sweet, nerdy, absolutely tropetastic and pretty much perfect.
Lady Ana Maria no longer belongs below stairs with the servants, but neither does she feel she belongs in the glittery world of the London elite. Where she does feel like she belongs? In a world of brilliantly colored fabric...and with her brother's best friend, Nash, Duke of Melvern.
Reading My Last Duchess reminded me why I fell in love with Eloisa James's writing and made me want to start the entire Wildes of Lindow Castle series all over again!
I was super excited for this final installment in the Rogue Files series. I really enjoyed Nora in her sisters' books, The Duke's Stolen Bride and The Virgin and The Rogue, and was SO ready for some opposites attract/enemies to lovers romance. And while there was some of that, there was also a lot of strange pacing and a decided lack of connection between Nora and Constantine.
The first book in the Wallflowers vs. Rogues series picks up shortly after the end of One Fine Duke with the Duke of Thorndon's sister Beatrice and carpenter/sailor Stamford Wright who just. keeps. disturbing. her. peace.
