Need the rest of the series. Thoughts on McAlistair’s Fortune Sometimes when you find an author you like (Hello, Alissa Johnson!), you have to set aside your dislike of reading series out of order and just dive in. Especially, you know, when Goodreads goes down and you’re at the library looking to get in and out […]

A perfect Saturday afternoon escape read Thoughts on A Duke Never Yields Full disclosure: A Duke Never Yields was a total escape read for me, which means I loved the book while I was reading it (except for maybe the ending, which just made me go, “Really? Why?”), but the more I think about it, the […]

Can’t wait for the other stories. Thoughts on A Lady Never Lies After a somewhat disappointing run of books, I put off reading. It wasn’t a slump, exactly, just a desire not to pick up another meh book. That’s where Renae came in. I poked and prodded until she gave me a couple recommendations of […]

Predictable and slightly unbelievable, but good. Thoughts on How to Dance with a Duke Should we talk about the predictability first? There’s a bit of mystery here: what happened to Lucas’s brother. And though that wasn’t necessarily predictable, I did figure out who was behind everything the first time that particular character appeared in the […]

Need more Smythe-Smith in my life. Thoughts on The Sum of All Kisses Oh, book. Julia Quinn gives good historical romance. Uncomplicated in the best way possible.

Ready to believe in fairy tales. Thoughts on Romancing the Duke It’s no secret I’m a fan of Tessa Dare. And Romancing the Duke has done little to change that… except maybe made me even more impatient for her next book. But I have a feeling that should surprise no one. Is there really a […]

Wicked Intentions by Elizabeth Hoyt {Amanda’s Review}

Posted 14 April, 2014 by Amanda / 8 Comments

Wicked Intentions lacked wickedness for me. Thoughts on Wicked Intentions Since I started reading (re: going on a bender of) historical romances last year, I’ve had a solid, consistent run of 4-star (ESR: 8) books, with a few outliers on either side. I was beginning to think I’d lost some of my critical edge—not necessarily […]
