Blog Tour: Review-Eloisa James’ Three Weeks with Lady X + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Review-Eloisa James’ Three Weeks with Lady X + Giveaway

Eloisa James is one of those authors who are hit or miss for me. I loved, loved, loved meeting Leopold Dautry, the Duke of Villiers in James’ Desperate Duchesses series and when I heard his illegitimate son, Tobias, was getting a book, I couldn’t resist the temptation to read it! Ah, Three Weeks with Lady X was everything I wanted! If you’ve never read James’ Desperate Duchesses series it’s not necessary to do so in order to enjoy Three Weeks with Lady X. There are no spoilers and you can even go back to read Leopold’s story, A Duke of Her Own, and not miss anything since both are good standalones. We have good characterization and James does a great job letting us spend an equal amount of time with… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Sarah MacLean’s No Good Duke Goes Unpunished + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Review-Sarah MacLean’s No Good Duke Goes Unpunished + Giveaway

Sarah MacLean is one of those historical romance authors I’ve been wanting to read, but haven’t had the chance to do so. When the opportunity came to participate in the blog tour, I knew this was my chance. MacLean’s No Good Duke Goes Unpunished is the third book in her The Rules of Scoundrels series. If you haven’t read the series, it’s perfectly safe to read No Good Duke without being exposed to spoilers. As for characterization, it’s a bit weak. I do believe it has to do with the fact that this is the third book in a series and some characters are already established. Our hero is Temple (William Harrow, the Duke of Lamont) who has spent the past twelve years known as Killer Duke. He has no… Read more »

Interview: Cara Connelly + Giveaway

Interview: Cara Connelly + Giveaway

I’m really excited to welcome Cara Connelly to Literary, etc as part of the “The Wedding Date” blog tour! You can read an exclusive excerpt here. The giveaway is located at the end of the interview along with the link to follow the blog tour. Q. Tell me something about Cara Connelly other than the standard bio on your website. I grew up in a very rural area and went to the same school with the same kids from kindergarten through graduation, which gave me have a deep fondness and appreciation for small town life. But I also love cities, and while most people relish a getaway to the countryside, my favorite vacations have taken me to Paris, Rome, Venice, London, Vienna, Dublin, Los Angeles, Austin, San Francisco, Washington… And… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Lisa Desrochers’ A Little Too Much + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Review-Lisa Desrochers’ A Little Too Much + Giveaway

Lisa Desrochers’ A Little Too Much is the second book in her A Little Too Far series. If you’ve read the synopsis for both books then you know Alessandro doesn’t get the girl in A Little Too Far (I really hope you don’t consider this as a spoiler). I’ll be truthful, I’m team Alessandro all the way and still believe Lexie chose the wrong guy. Either way, I’m glad Alessandro got his own book because we get to spend a little more time with him. We have good characterization and I really liked getting to know Alessandro better. In A Little Too Far, he’s reserved and there’s a good reason; he’s about to enter the priesthood and there’s a certain code of conduct. He revealed a little of his past… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Julia Quinn’s The Sum of All Kisses + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Review-Julia Quinn’s The Sum of All Kisses + Giveaway

Whenever I have a bad day, Julia Quinn is an author I turn to. I devoured her Bridgerton series and I’ve made no secret that Mr. Cavendish, I Presume is my favorite. When the opportunity came to participate in the blog tour for The Sum of All Kisses, I couldn’t pass up the chance. The Sum of All Kisses is the third in the Symthe-Smith Quartet series. If you haven’t read the first two books, Just like Heaven and A Night Like This, you can delve right in; however, Quinn does mention a few things that occur in previous books, but nothing I would consider a spoiler. As for character development, it’s strong. We spend an equal amount of time with Sarah Pleinsworth and Hugh Prentice and get to know… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Karen Ranney’s The Devil of Clan Sinclair + Giveaway

Blog Tour: Review-Karen Ranney’s The Devil of Clan Sinclair + Giveaway

I’ve always wanted to read Karen Ranney’s books, but I’ve never had the chance. When the opportunity came to participate in the blog tour, I couldn’t say no! Ranney’s The Devil of Clan Sinclair was a delightful read! I’m a big fan of reunited lovers and Ranney’s The Devil of Clan Sinclair doesn’t disappoint! Writing was engaging and I loved the banter between Macrath and Virginia. I most particularly enjoyed how Ranney introduced us to the couple and especially how their romance developed and how they were torn apart. Character development was strong, but I couldn’t feel much empathy for Virginia especially after she agrees to Enid, her mother-in-law’s plan. I know people do crazy things in desperate times, but I just wanted her to show some backbone. Even Enid… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Katharine Ashe’s How to Marry a Highlander

Blog Tour: Review-Katharine Ashe’s How to Marry a Highlander

Katharine Ashe’s How to Marry a Highlander is a novella in her Falcon Club series. You don’t need to read the books in the series, but for a little background on Teresa and Duncan, you might want to read How a Lady Weds a Rogue since they make an appearance. Upon hearing the local vicar express his interest in her, Teresa Finch-Freeworth, flees her home in the country to London with one goal in mind, to marry the handsome Scotsman she can’t stop thinking about it. She seeks Duncan, the Earl of Eads and proposes marriage, but is disappointed when he doesn’t remember her and refuses her proposal. Not one to back down from a challenge, she proposes a wager; for each betrothal his sisters make with her assistance, Duncan… Read more »
