The Duke is Mine

The Duke Is Mine (Happily Ever Afters, #3)The Duke Is Mine by Eloisa James

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I thought this book was very amusing at times and was also sad in places. Olivia and her sister Georgiana spent their entire lives being trained to be duchesses due to a betrothal arranged before any of the three were born. Olivia, who is 7 minutes older than her twin, is the affianced, and while her intended Rupert is away at war (but safely out of action) she and her sister attend a party to hopefully find Georgie a husband. Throw in scientists, hijinks, a crazy mom, hormones, a daring rescue and true love and you have an excellent fast paced story with an almost completely happy ending. This is part of James’ Fairy Tale series and is based loosely on The Princess and the Pea (though the prospective mother in law runs tests that do not involve a pea). While I like the previous book When Beauty Tamed the Beast better, I really did enjoy this book and most certainly will be reading it again.

Review: Time Untime by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Time Untime (Dark-Hunter, #17)Time Untime by Sherrilyn Kenyon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

We met Ren in Sundown’s story. He’s a bit aloof, and quiet.
We find out why he’s so quiet: He has a stutter.

Kateri is the missing piece to the end of the world. Without her, the world will end. Yeap, on 12/21/12 @ 11:11pm

There’s a LOT that goes on in the novel. Too much to try and explain.

If you’re a Dark Hunter fan, you’ll like the novel.
If you’re a fan of Sasha, the were-hunter, you’ll like the novel.
If you want to see peace between Ash and Nick, READ THIS BOOK!

Review: Forever and a Day by Jill Shalvis

Forever and a Day (Lucky Harbor, #6)Forever and a Day by Jill Shalvis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love going back to Lucky Harbor. So much so that I’ll be re-reading the series, just for the heck of it 😀

Anyways, on to the review of the actual novel.

Once again, I’m sucked in, straight from the beginning.
There’s heartbreak, an adorable little guy, and even a tiny little dog with the moniker of Tank.
Trust me. Tank has earned his name 😉

It’s a great story, full of love, laughter, and a few tears.

If you love the classic romance storyline, you’ll love this book.

Review: Born of Silence

Born of Silence (The League, #5)Born of Silence by Sherrilyn Kenyon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In previous stories, we hear about Darling being “gay”. I was wondering how Sherrilyn was going to work with that, and she did an amazing job on showing why everyone assumed he was gay, when he fact he was very much straight.

The story would not have worked without the supporting characters, and Sherrilyn does such an amazing job of keeping them part of the story, but without them taking over. You get to see some old favorites (Sin, for example).

Honestly, the reading of the story has me wanting to re-read the whole series. LOVE the League series, and cannot wait to read the continuations!

Review: MacGregor’s Bride: MacGregors

MacGregor's Bride: MacGregorsMacGregor’s Bride: MacGregors by Nora Roberts

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another great Nora Roberts novel.
I cannot choose a favorite of the three girls. I just can’t, hehe
I love that we get an insight into Daniel’s thinking at the beginning of each of the girls’ stories.
Plus, they fight, but they all have to admit that their grandfather has damn good taste!

Review: Tempting Fate

Tempting Face
Tempting Fate by Nora Roberts
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The second story in the MacGregor series, recently re-released in eBook form ($6.99 for both Nook & Kindle).

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a huge Nora Roberts fan, but honestly, of all of the series, minus Mac (book #9), this is one of my favorites.

Caine is the former Attorney General, now working in his own firm. Of him, and one other person, his secretary, a soap-opera obsessed, organized chaos type of character. A wonderful woman, though. Love her!

Diana is Justin’s sister. She thinks he abandoned her, but finds out that what she had been told was all false, with no truth.

Of course, things get all clusterfluffed when The MacGregor, Daniel, Caine’s father, gets involved. It forces Serena to give advice, which she hates, but in the end, love wins out.

It’s a beautiful story with believable happenings, amazing family dynamics that, even years after reading for the first time, I’m still jealous of.

Nora Roberts is in a class all by herself with her series. It always leaves us wanting more. Not more because something is left hanging, but more, like we would be content to read about everyday boring lives, just because we get so hooked into those characters.

Review: Infamous

Infamous by Sherrilyn Kenyon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another great, can’t put down read, from Ms. Sherrilyn Kenyon.

I’m loving seeing these sides of Nick, reading the pre-cursors to some of my most beloved characters.

Nick is born of love and evil. A wicked combination, no pun intended.

He has the best of teachers, and the worst.

Will he make it through, or will someone defeat him.

I’m assuming he’s going to make it, since Ms. Kenyon has already said Nick has a Dark Hunter novel all his own coming, once the Chronicles series hits it’s peak/end.
