Lady in Red by Karen Hawkins {Amanda’s Review}

Lady in Red by Karen Hawkins {Amanda’s Review}

Posted 28 September, 2015 by Amanda / 9 Comments

A break from historical romance needed?? Thoughts on Lady in Red Despite telling myself to attend to the vast number of unread books on my shelves (naturally, few are historical romance), I picked Lady in Red to read. But… either I’m in a critical mood or I’ve reached the tipping point in historical romances because […]

For the Earl’s Pleasure by Anne Mallory {Amanda’s Review}

For the Earl’s Pleasure by Anne Mallory {Amanda’s Review}

I picked it up for this line in the synopsis: Wanton lust overwhelms him whenever she is near. Wanton lust! Overwhelming wanton lust! How could it possibly go wrong? Perhaps the […]

Ummm isn’t an amorous moment sound. Thoughts on Tempted All Night Hmph. Or should I say “Ummmm,” which is what the characters moan in particularly amorous moments? You know how sometimes little tiny, seemingly inconsequential, things can be extremely irritating? That’s what “Ummmm…” did for me. And being that this is the second Liz Carlyle […]

The Best of the Great Historical Romance Bender

The Best of the Great Historical Romance Bender

Posted 28 August, 2015 by Amanda / 14 Comments

It occurred to me recently that the August Bout of Books marks the anniversary of the Great Historical Romance Bender. And what better way to celebrate its second anniversary (SECOND!) by talking about the best books/authors/series? Also… the majority of these books are set in Regency and Victorian England. I’m biased. I can’t help it! […]
