One Night of Temptation (Wicked Dukes Club #6) by Darcy Burke
One Night of Temptation (Wicked Dukes Club #6) - Darcy Burke

 

 

One Night of Temptation is a reminder of why I continue to be a Darcy Burke fan. Burke doesn't write damsels in distress. Her characters are fierce women determined not to be victimized. Lady Penelope is a she - ro in every sense of the word. She fights her own battles, lives her own truth and gives her heart completely. When life throws her a curveball, she refuses to surrender. Until love takes the choice right out of her hands. Hugh is not in her plans, but this spirited duo heated up the pages as they thundered their way into my heart.

Fabulous Historical Romance!
Wicked Wyckerly (Rebellious Sons Book 1)... Wicked Wyckerly (Rebellious Sons Book 1) (Rebellious Sons Series) - Patricia Rice

Wicked Wyckerly by Patricia Rice is an outstanding historical romance.  Ms. Rice has provided readers with a well-written book.  I love the characters in this story.  Fitz has just become the 7th Earl of Danecroft, a bankrupt estate and a sea of people wanting money from him.  Abigail is a country girl, happy with her crops but now needs a man to help her get her young siblings back home where they belong.  Fitz and Abigail's story is loaded with drama, humor, spice, action and a little suspense.  I enjoyed reading Wickey Wyckerly and look forward to reading my next book by Patricia Rice.  Wicked Wyckerly is book 1 of the Rebellious Sons Series but can easily be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Review: The Wicked King (The Folk of the Air #2) by Holly Black
The Wicked King - Holly Black

You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.

The first lesson is to make yourself that strong.

Jude has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were biddable. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her, even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.

When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a faerie world.

 

 

4.5 ★

WOW !!! This book gave me whiplash !!! That Ending…. Lets just say it’s been two days and I’m still not sure what to think and a bit angry about it.

Like I said the whole book is a rollercoaster and there is nto much I can say to not spoil it and believe me, you don’t want to be spoiled with this one.

I will make it sweet and shirt , ot at least I try  lo.

The book starts off 5 some months after the events of the last book, Cardan is King, Jude pulling his strings,( or is she?) . To be honest, I think Jude is getting a bit power-hungry and all that string pulling is getting to her head a bit. But then again that is all that she has left. She is still on the outs with her family, her fae family that is. She is working with the Court of Shadows and of course working The High King. But all that is getting more and more complicated as she seems to be having more and more feelings for Cardan. The water fae also coming out to play and things get a bit … wet and nasty.

As thing heat up with the underwater fae, and things getting a bit out of control she starts working again with Madoc. Of course he is him and yu never know if you can trust him or not.

I will say as much as an A-$$ -Hole he is ….. I really love him and always looked forward to parts with him.

Cardan was not as much in the book, as I hoped and if again you never know with him, I liked him, I hated him , I loved him and I never fully trusted him but I still wanted more of him. I have a real love-hate relationship with him for sure. 

Jude, most if the time I thought she is a bitch but others I just felt bad for her and asked why she keeps doing that do herself, even though she could just up and go to the human world.

Overall I really liked the book and learned quickly, you can’t trust anyone, no matter what or who.  There is lots if humor, action and even more betrayal going on , it is pretty fast pact and with all the action going on the book reads super-fast.

The end …… DID NOT see that coming…. NOT in a million years…. OMG I was soo angry and confused. Well done Holly Black, that was one heck of a twist I didn’t see coming.

I can’t wait for the next book to see how she will finish it …….. Because I’m not even sure where this can go. Well I do but I don’t think I would like that lol.

Overall great book, few things I disliked but nothing major and not even worth mentioning.

I rate it 4.5 ★

Review: The Wicked Viscount by Heather McCollum
The Wicked Viscount - Heather McCollum

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

Cat Campbell is a healer, a fighter, and a Highland Rose. She’s a plain-speaking woman who fights with bow and arrow or dagger rather than words. But when Queen Catherine needs the help of a Highland Rose in court, Cat is the best candidate to go to her aid. Whitehall is a world away from what Cat knows, filled with scheming, politics, and words that could be far more deadly than a knife. The only person she can trust is her escort, Viscount Nathaniel Worthington, whose sisters run the Highland Roses School. Nathaniel drives her mad, mostly due to the attraction that’s been simmering between the two of them for over a year. Close quarters make the pull between them harder to resist. But can their burgeoning relationship survive the danger that awaits them at court?

Two strong-willed characters with excellent chemistry find love in The Wicked Viscount. Heather McCollum has brought both the glamour and the seedy underbelly of seventeenth century court life to life in this book, but it’s the Nathaniel and Cat who grabbed my attention from the start and made the pages of the story fly by.

Cat is very much a rose with thorns; beautiful but deadly. She’s smart, honest, and even when out of her depth and under pressure she stands strong. Cat has survived tremendous loss and hardship and has vulnerabilities, yet she remains a fierce protector willing to stand up for anyone who needs it. I adored her from the start and I couldn’t wait to see her fall in love with Nathaniel. Nathaniel was raised in his father’s image, but he’s a far different man from his sire. He has a strong core of honor, a protective streak a mile wide, and a distaste for the machinations at court. I was excited to see Nathaniel and Cat get together, as they struck sparks off one another in previous Campbell books. The two of them did not disappoint. The energy between them crackles and their dialogue as they travel to London made me smile more than once. When they give into their desires, The Wicked Viscount gets deliciously – dare I say it? – wicked. While it’s clear they’re made for each other, the ghosts of Cat’s past and the bindings his father’s will have placed on Nathaniel mean that love may not be enough for them to get their happily ever after.

Queen Catherine did not call for a Highland Rose out of misplaced alarm, which means much of The Wicked Viscount deals with unearthing traitors, palace politics, and venomous mean girls. Much like Cat, I’m not one for court gossip, deception, or intrigue but I was still engaged in the story, especially when seeing things through Cat’s eyes. I cannot say much about what happens at court for fear of spoiling the story. Suffice it to say that Ms. McCollum kept things interesting and I enjoyed watching the action build to an exciting climax.

The Wicked Viscount is the third book in the Campbells series (previously known as the Highland Roses School series), but it can easily be read as a standalone. I’ve enjoyed every book in this series with its brave Highland Roses who defend themselves and others and the men who love them and do the same. I cannot wait to return to the Highlands and see what Ms. McCollum has in store for the next Campbell hero or heroine!
