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.

Guest Post: The Appeal Of The Virgin Heroine by Cynthia Sax + Giveaway

Guest Post: The Appeal Of The Virgin Heroine by Cynthia Sax + Giveaway

Today’s our stop on The Seen Trilogy blog tour! Today Cynthia is talking about virgin heroines and their appeal. I reviewed the trilogy separately, but here’s the direct link to all three reviews. I liked the series and hopefully you’ll be inclined to check series or at least weigh in regarding virgins. Also the giveaway is located at the bottom (good luck!). The Appeal Of The Virgin Heroine Anna, the heroine of He Watches Me, is a virgin. Virgin heroines are unusual in contemporary erotic romances but then, Anna is an unusual young woman. Due to her past, she doesn’t trust easily. She certainly doesn’t trust a man enough to let him inside her. She kisses with her mouth closed and her eyes open. She deliberately doesn’t put herself in… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Cynthia Sax’s He Claims Me

Blog Tour: Review-Cynthia Sax’s He Claims Me

Cynthia Sax’s He Claims Me is the final installment in The Seen Trilogy and while some questions remain unanswered, it’s a satisfying conclusion to this voyeuristic erotic trilogy. He Claims Me picks up right where He Touches Me left off. This time Anna is in trouble and in many ways, Sax was giving us a sign that something wasn’t right. In the first two novellas, we see a moth and Anna often compares herself to one; always floating and drifting. The morning following her first sexual experience with Gabriel she finds a moth hurt. At first I didn’t pay attention to it until everything Anna has worked for begins to fall apart. In He Touches Me, Michael eagerly assists Anna in trying to land an in-house meeting, but by accepting… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Cynthia Sax’s He Touches Me

Blog Tour: Review-Cynthia Sax’s He Touches Me

Cynthia Sax’s He Touches Me picks up where He Watches Me left off and it’s the second novella in The Seen trilogy. In He Touches Me, we get to know Anna and Gabriel a little more. I failed to mention that narration in He Watches Me is first person via Anna and it continues throughout the series. I like Anna and her perspective. Anna comes to grip with the reality that she likes to be watched and I feel that a series in her narrative adds to the voyeurism aspect that she enjoys very much. Character development continues and it’s interesting to see both Anna and Gabriel establish a relationship. Their night time swimming ritual Anna established with Gabriel, still continues but this time there’s a bit of action on… Read more »

Knowing utilities can be expensive she doesn’t run the air conditioner and to complicate matters, the Leigh’s have given her a list of rooms she’s allowed to use.

Blog Tour: Review-Diana Baron’s Training Temptation

Blog Tour: Review-Diana Baron’s Training Temptation

Character development is pretty good for it being a novella. I felt like I got to know Caroline and Edward pretty well especially their concerns. Even though Caroline writes Edward off, they actually have a lot more in common than they care to admit. I won’t explain what it is because it is a spoiler. I liked that Edward wasn’t this egotistical jerk and he truly did care about Caroline. I do believe he was attracted to her because he could have any woman he wanted, but her. Caroline isn’t one to back down from a challenge and speaks her mind. She’s courageous and thinks about the estate and the people she’s responsible for. We are introduced to several secondary characters including Edwards’ father, Anton. Anton is interesting and I… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Tara Chevrestt’s Maiden Behind the Mask

Blog Tour: Review-Tara Chevrestt’s Maiden Behind the Mask

Tara Chevrestt’s Maiden Behind the Mask is a fun whimsical read! Even though it’s a novella, characters are drawn out. Catalina Rodriguez is no fainting miss! Realizing what her fate could have been had she been raped she seeks out to defend the innocent and in the process wreaks havoc on the pueblo! Ricardo Garcia isn’t your typical hero. Sure he’s arrogant, but he’s not interested in marriage nor does he go around sleeping around. Even though Catalina forces his hand, he takes it in stride, but doesn’t count on falling in love. Both Catalina and Ricardo are blindsided by love, but it’s a lovely romance. The writing is engaging and it’s a fast paced read. I had a lot of fun with this book, but I do have a… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway-Sally Smith O’Rourke’s Yours Affectionately, Jane Austen

Sally Smith O’Rourke’s Yours Affectionately, Jane Austen is the second book in her The Man Who Loved Jane Austen series. I haven’t read the first book, which takes the name of her series, and although I didn’t feel lost reading Yours Affectionately, I do feel I would have been better prepared had I read it. At the time I wasn’t aware it was a second book and it wasn’t until I read it that I felt certain events were missing. I do recommend you read the first book and then proceed to Yours Affectionately. Yours Affectionately picks up where The Man Who Loved Jane Austen left off. Eliza Knight has made contact with Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pemberley Farms in Virginia and brought him the letters written by Jane Austen herself…. Read more »
