A Widow's Guide to Scandal was a delightful childhood friends to lovers romance with a bit of Revolutionary War intrigue on the side! I believe this was my first US Revolutionary War romance, which made for a very interesting setting to Henrietta and Marcus's story.
Would I Lie to the Duke by Eva Leigh My rating: 5 of 5 stars You'll laugh! You'll cry! (Like, literally, I cried. Real tears. Running down my face. And I don't cry reading very often. Hit me right in the feels.) I absolutely adored Would I Lie to the Duke! (Even though it made …
Gahhhh, Olivia Waite just writes such beautiful stories! Agatha and Penelope were both absolutely fabulous in their own right and even better together. I adored all their friends and family as well, and really appreciated the evolution of Agatha and Penelope's relationships with them as well as with each other.
WOW. Wow, wow, wow. Have I mentioned WOW? I'm not going to lie, I had doubts about Ewan doing enough groveling to truly make this redemption arc work, but I NEVER SHOULD HAVE DOUBTED THE QUEEN. Sarah Maclean delivered the MOST satisfying grovel novel and childhood friends to enemies to lovers romance for Ewan and Grace.
I don't even know where to begin, except to say that I loved The Devil of Downtown with every inch of my heart. The Rogue of Fifth Avenue was good; The Prince of Broadway was even better. But The Devil of Downtown worked it's way into my heart with every adorable, steamy, heartbreaking, and love affirming moment between Jack and Justine - and it has taken it's place as one of my favorite romances of all time.
These two idiots....you can't not love them both. Martin is the grumpiest of the grumpy ones, Will is the gooiest of the cinnamon roll, and they've been soulmates - though never lovers - since they were young. They're so cute together and the banter is top tier Cat Sebastian. Two Rogues Make a Right is truly the ultimate friends to lovers!
It's magnificent. It's bananas. It's everything I've always wanted in a romance. I loved every moment of The Virgin and the Rogue, from the outrageous sexy times to tender moments of understanding to the raw confrontation of feelings Charlotte and Kingston would rather ignore.
Like many other Julia Quinn fans, I'd been eagerly awaiting the release of First Comes Scandal for nearly a year and a half before it came out. I was lucky enough to be approved for an ARC, so I actually received it in March and was SO excited! Unfortunately, this one just didn't blow me away.
There were parts of this that worked for me and parts that didn't. I really enjoyed the banter between Viola and Devin. They had some very sweet moments and some very hot moments. While Viola's character seemed fully formed - although her anxiety does seem to just disappear at some point in the book - I felt like we were pieces missing from Devin.
Big. Boss Lady. Energy. Sixteen years ago Beatrice Goodwin made the decision to follow her family and society's expectations and marry a Duke instead of following her heart and running away with Wes Dalton. Now divorced, Beatrice is back in New York with the family and business she loves - Goodwin's Department Store. But Goodwin's isn't the booming business it once was and her brother's decided to sell. And the man who's going to buy is none other than Wes Dalton himself. Beatrice isn't going to let go of Goodwin's without a fight, and soon Dalton realizes that the only thing he wants to win is her heart.
