The Lost Duke of Wyndham by Julia Quinn
The Lost Duke of Wyndham - Julia Quinn

I have owned this book since 2011. The depths of my kindle account is scary at times. I very much enjoyed this one. It had humor, a lovable rogue, a wonderful heroine, some really funny situations. But it also had some heart wrenching moments that had me going from smiling to having tears in my eyes. And oh so romantic. *sigh.

True North by Liora Blake

Overall romantic and sexy CR. Loved the H mostly liked the h. Trevor made this book really. 

I am taking off a couple of stars because of Kate's tendencies to jump to wrong conclusions at the drop of a hat early in the book.

Just ask him, don't act like a child. And too much "solving" of issues with sex. I like sexy just fine, but this went on just a bit much. Less sex and more talking. First 3rd of book was really charming. Cute.

The Madness of Viscount Atherbourne by Elisa Braden

Just a tad too much lusting in this one too early, with not enough tension buildup. Much better in that regard in the second half.


Overall good though, page turner. Will read the next.

White Balance by Anslie Paton
White Balance - Ainslie Paton

There were lots of errors in this book like odd sentences and repeated words and comma instead of apostrophe, etc. Those kind of things. Threw me out a bit. Story was pretty good though.

 

Just disappointed in the lack of editing.

Wreck of the Nebula Dream by Veronica Scott
Wreck of the Nebula Dream - Veronica Scott

Overall I really enjoyed this ride.

 

I have to preface this with saying that I went into this thinking it was a sci-fi romance. It was recommended to me as such. The cover kind of also implies it would be a romance.
It doesn't work as a romance though as there is almost no development of a couple and they go from barely having looked at each other to starry eyes and probing tongue. There is no sex going on, just kissing. :)

 

The POV is from the hero only so there isn't really much of the inner workings of the heroine. Not sure what else to call her, but again, this is not a romance. Its a fast action space adventure with some romantic elements. But barely.

So if I don't try to look at it what I thought it was, it was non stop fun and edge of seat for me. It was a fun motley crew that has to fight against odds after odds once the cruise ship space liner goes to the dogs.

 

What I found so great here was the way the author made me feel I was there, the urgency of fighting your way through obstacles and enemies. This read like a fun sci fi adventure movie for me and for that I loved it.

 

But now I have to go back and again try to find sci fi romance that actually is sci-fi romance. They are so hard to find.

 

I will be reading more of this author, I just won't be going in expecting sci-fi romance anymore. :)
