Dark Temptation
Dark Temptation (Blackheath Moor #2) - Allison Chase

3.5 stars but I really thought this one's gonna make at least 4 stars. The story was rather interesting with the usual paranormal activities that were creepy and intriguing at the same time. And I really liked the H, who was a secondary character in book 1; a friend of the H there. I didn't like him in book 1 much but in his own book, I got to know him better so all in all, I thought this one's gonna be better.

However, the h of the story completely ruined it for me. She was an idiot, extremely stubborn and super irresponsible. If someone said 'don't do this, it's dangerous', she'd simply ignore that warning and do exactly that; all because she fancied herself a 'journalist', a detective too, by the looks of it. *eyeroll* I lost count of just how many times she had put herself in danger throughout the book and in the process, put the H in danger too cause he was always rescuing her. -_- Even though she'd later acknowledge some of her blunders, I don't think she learned much from any of it. Either way, by 70% I began losing interest and didn't care how it ended. I wished I could replace the h with someone smarter, more responsible. No idea what the H saw in her anyway! Meh.

I had high hopes for this series. Too bad. *sigh*

Dark Obsession
Dark Obsession (Blackheath Moor #1) - Allison Chase

This book had a good storyline (Gothic toned with paranormal happenings - a combo I generally love!). I also liked the writing style, however too much melodrama between the characters ruined it for me. There were times I wasn't sure whether I should SMH or roll my eyes. *sigh*

Fortune's Kiss
Fortune's Kiss - Lisa Manuel

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the book...

Oh my! What an adorable read Lisa Manuel’s historical romance, Fortune’s Kiss, turned out to be! Honestly, I had no idea what I was getting into but I can’t express enough just how much I enjoyed this book! It was very well-written with a pair of adorable H and h, and some interesting cast of secondary characters.

I can’t seem to stop saying ‘adorable’, but bear with me please. LOL

Graham Forster left England for Egypt 10 years ago in search of a better life, to built the ruined future that he wanted to leave behind. He was the victim of a conniving Duke and his son. Money bought the help of someone holding an honorable post at his university and Graham was accused of cheating; a deed that was never done by him. When the news broke loose, and he couldn’t prove anything, Graham had to leave England. Though relatives of Baron Monteith, Graham’s own family come from a more humble background with financial problems and debts aplenty. Graham’s father and the rest of the family have never believed in his innocence. It hurt him so much that Graham stayed as far away as possible from them, without any communication whatsoever. He has unearthed, what the British would call, ‘treasures’ from various ancient graves that have given him a name and fame in his country, also a small fortune. He has also been aware of his father’s passing but Graham has been determined never to return to England. Now, after all these years, a message finds him, telling him that he’s needed back in England and pronto. Because you see, Graham has just been found the only heir to Baron Monteith, and apparently, though they don’t care for him, his mother and the remaining siblings, a pair of twin brother and sister, have already moved into his new home, amassing debts along the way. How nice!
