I wonder why all heroines seem to smell of lemons? I think it is strange...what's this passion about lemons? I don't understand.

The hero's job was a fantastic idea. It was definitely catching reading about his aliases, I was as charmed as the heroine when she spied him in the process of changing his costumes. Very sensual, too.

Series: 2nd of Brides of Beadwell

Finally a story where both protagonists, Bex, a distan indebited duke's cousin and Lucy a vicar's daughter, are penniless and not titled - I like also when they are rich and titled but for sure what is portrayed here is rarity in the genre, and therefore I'm happily surprised.

Review: Never Trust a Pirate (Playful Brides) - ARC



Author: Valerie Bowman
Original Title: Never Trust A Pirate
Release Year: May 2017

Literary Genre: Historical Romance
Setting: England, Regency Era
Series: 7th of Playful Brides


Vote: 7 1/2


So, it is a bit difficult for me to give an opinion about this novel. Which is certainly not a new "affliction" for me when it comes to Valerie Bowman.

I can safely say that I liked it, and in some occasions, while I was reading, I thought that I was liking it very much...however, reached the end, I confirm that I "just" liked it. Why?

Author: Lily Maxton
Original Title: Enchanting the Earl
Release Year: April 2017

Literary Genre: Historical Romance
Setting: Scotland, Regency
Series: 1st of The Townsends

Vote: 9 1/5




There is an historical romance that I love immensely, one of my favourite, and I read and read again all the time, and every time I do it, I adore it more. And this is a Lily Maxton's novel, The Improper Bride. 
And so I waited, and waited, for another story from the author and now, habemus librum.

Original Title: The Bad Luck Bride
Release Year: May 2017

Literary Genre: Historical Romance
Setting: England, Regency Era
Series: 1st of The Cavensham Heiresses

Vote: 8 1/5







Let's start with a fact. I have a crave for stories where the hero does something he shouldn't to against the heroine and then tries his hardest to conquer her back. It's a strange fetichism, but here it is.
In Janna MacGregor's debut novel we have it. Yay!

I am not a big fan on insta-lust story. Yes, sure attraction is wanted, curiosity is wanted, but the idea that a man who sees me for the first time is immediately just thinking to strip me naked, would probably give me the creeps. Slow down man.

Adorable indeed.
I loved the novel, first of all because this type of storyline is probably my favourite (or anyway very high on the list), I have a weird fascination for historical gaming hells and especially the owners of them. It's Kleypas' "fault" I believe.
