The Celtic Knot (Suit of Cups, #1)The Celtic Knot by Shannon MacLeod

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Celtic Knot is a mild romantic suspense with a touch of magic. It is set in Florida around a Renaissance festive theme park.

Review:

Woohoo~!!! Finally their book is here! I got to tell you I’ve been waiting for these two since the very beginning and finally they’re here!

This is book three in Valerie Bowman’s Playful Brides series which follows three wallflower friends as they use their skills to help one another achieve their personal goals. But as each uses their skills, one always falls….(metaphorically speaking).

Review:

This is definitely the most fun I’ve read from Jade!

It’s also the most different from her because it’s a comical! Yes! You read that right, comical!

As you may not know,  many of Jade’s Historical romances lean towards the darker and tortured side of romance with angst and all but this is one heck of a fun read!

Both these characters are smarty pants and scientist in their own right.

Millie Smithson is the daughter of a scientist and wants to control her life on her terms. Not just that but she want to travel, move out of the country and go to London, produce a face cream for women and hold her own bank account. The only thing that stands in the way is her father and…

Review: If the Viscount Falls (The Dukes Men #4) by Sabrina Jeffries

Sabrina Jeffries is one of my FAVORITE authors…

Romance Reader Girl

Blurb:From New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries, the deliciously sexy fourth book in the “Duke’s Men” Regency romance series—the first of which was called “a totally engaging, adventurous love story” (RT Book Reviews, Top Pick).

The heir presumptive to the Viscount Rathmoor, Dominick Manton once had his heart’s desire within reach—a bright future as a barrister and engagement to Jane Vernon, a wealthy baron’s daughter. Then a shattering betrayal by his vindictive brother George snatched away Dom’s inheritance and his hopes of offering Jane a secure future. Brokenhearted, and attempting to end their engagement without destroying Jane’s VFreputation, Dom staged a betrayal of his own to convince her that he’s not the husband-to-be that she thought.

Now George is gone and the viscountcy restored to Dom, since his brother’s widow, Nancy—Jane’s cousin and closest confidant—never bore an heir. But when Nancy goes missing, a panicked Jane calls on…

Dreaming Of The Duke (Duke’s Club #2) by Eva Devon

23250144

RATING: 4.5 Out Of 5 Stars

“A Feisty and Tough Heroine”
“A Swoon-Worthy, But Troubled Hero”
“A Romantic Journey From Beginning to End!

Cordelia Eversleigh, the Duchess of Hunt, has returned to London, and has resulted in stalking her own husband,  Jack Eversleigh, the Duke of Hunt, to get one thing from him… an annulment. After following him into a place where no lady should go, she finally gets a chance to talk to him. After some light banter between them, Cordelia is about to tell him who she is and why she appeared before him, but she’s interrupted, and he walks out the door before she can tell him…
Jack has never met anyone like her, nor has been drawn to a woman like this before, and before he has a chance to learn her name he was interrupted to go save his twin brother from his drunken shenanigans. But luckily he knows where she is staying and decides to go officially meet her, but he never expected that the woman was his wife that his father had him married by proxy when they were children. And after learning that she was there to get an annulment he comes up with a proposition for her. She has to spend one week with him then he will give her freedom to what she wants, even back to her archeological pursuits…
But what they didn’t expect was once the they started, it was going to complicate their desired goals. Making them make a choice of whether to pursue their marriage or follow their own separate paths..

I came across this book when I received Eva Devon’s newsletter where it stated that this book was on sale at Amazon. After reading the synopsis for it, it peeked my interest enough that I went ahead and bought it. I am glad that I did, because I enjoyed Jack and Cordelia’s story. The heroine of the story was just fun. She was blunt, knew how to take care of herself, and was no shrinking miss. The hero was like all heroes in Historical Romances, maybe a touch more though, before they meet the woman for them, sexy and a complete Rake! It was delightful to read how Cordelia stands up to Jack and the times she was able to knock him down a peg or two. And the banter between them was really entertaining. As you turn each page you learn more aspects of their character, that help you understand how and why their characters turned out the way they did.
I enjoyed the funny one-liners that were said throughout the book, and the characters that delivered them had endeared themselves to me. The story plot, for the most part, flowed smoothly. In regards to this statement, as with all pros the can be listed, there is usually at least one or two cons that come up while reading in one way or the other, and for me the only thing that I was impartial to was there was too much sexual byplay that detracted the flow from the story at times, but luckily I was able to get back on track eventually.
