Book Review: What Would Mr Darcy Do?

I’ve read one of Abigail Reynolds‘ Pride And Prejudice variations before, Mr Darcy’s Refuge, and I absolutely loved it. I wanted to give another one of her variations a go and What Would Mr Darcy Do was the first of the remaining five that caught my attention. 

Book Review: Over The Mistletoe

Given that Christmas is almost upon us, I felt it was time I read some Christmassy stories – I’m feeling particularly festive this year so I have no rules about it being December before I indulge. Over The Mistletoe seemed to fit the bill perfectly. 

Book Review: Bed, Breakfast & Beyond

Paranormal stories normally don’t grab my attention, but Astraea Press sent through Bed, Breakfast & Beyond in their promo newsletter and I was intrigued by the idea of amorous ghosts.

Book Review: Sins Of The Highlander

Sins Of The Highlander seemed like an interesting read and the title gave me hope that it read more »

Book Review: The Bride And The Brute

Going back to what I love reading – historical romance – The Bride And The Brute has been on my ‘to read’ list for quite some time now so I thought it was about time I picked it up!

I haven’t read any contemporary fiction in a while, so when Twelve Kisses Later popped up I thought I’d put a little variety back in my reading.
