Her Wicked Ways - Darcy Burke

Her Wicked Ways by Darcy Burke
He and he buddies are there to rob the coaches but all he is offered is a kiss. He needs money for those at the orphanage for medicine.
He finds her name Miranda, appealing. Because of her behavior she's being sent to work at the orphanage in the way of punishment.
She had hoped to help Beatrice find a husband. That kiss though, was like one she never had before.
Fox is a farmer and helps at the orphanage, his family owns and runs it. She is able to ask others for contributions and lets him know he appeals to her.
Rob tries to pursuade him to go after Miranda before others get her.
Love hearing how she wants to teach the girls new things and how she handles the boys and manners at the table.
They are able to spend a lot of time together and the orphanage and learn more about each other.
Very explcit sexual scenes. Lots of mystery that involve money, missing money.
Very boring and long drawn out for my liking. Other works and excerpts are included at the end.
Received this free review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion.

Secrets!
Rogue's Son - Darcy Flynn

Rogue's Son by Darcy Flynn is a book that will draw you in deeper and deeper as you read until you can't put it down.  Ms. Flynn has given us a book that is well-written and packed it with amazing, lovable characters.  Kit is struggling to keep her family's B&B solvent.  Sam has opened a lodge on the neighboring ranch but he needs something from Kit to open his resort to capacity.  Their story is full of drama, humor and sizzle.  I enjoyed reading Rogue's Son and look forward to reading more from Darcy Flynn in the future.  Rogue's Son is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read a print copy of this book.

Jim Henson's The Storyteller
Jim Henson's The Storyteller: The Novelization - Darcy May,Anthony Minghella,Jim Henson

If you watched The Storyteller when it aired back in the late 80’s, this book is pretty much exactly the same, minus the commercial breaks and amazing Muppets. All nine featured stories are here; the good, the bad, and the most messed-up Cinderella version I have ever read.*

 

I was young enough when the show was running that the fairy tale magic was everything and the usual fairy tale misogyny went over my head, but now that I’m older I would argue with the late, great Henson’s assertion that these tales are timeless and applicable in a modern era. (Unless you really do want to teach your children that if they’ll just put up with horrific abuse they’ll be rewarded with princes and princesses and babies and kingdoms and riches beyond measure. Yep. Timeless.)

 

But I came for the fairy tale magic and the nostalgia, and I got both. Out of the nine, the only tale that remained truly timeless for me was The Heartless Giant. That one got me in the feels as a kid, and it got me even harder as an adult. Overall, it was an enjoyable read, but I kind of missed John Hurt’s narrating.

 

 

*I’m not kidding. Sapsorrow is horrifically messed up. I mean, I get the running away from home so the princess doesn’t have to marry her father the king (he wasn’t into it either, but they had to do it because Ye Olde Official Royal Wedding Ring fit her finger and kings can’t change stupid laws even to avoid incest, apparently). But tell me, princess, why you fell in love with the prince. Was it the way he looked down on you and treated you like dirt? Or the way he gave you a sharp kick and ordered a dozen of your goose friends be killed for his banquet? Or the way he looked straight at you and never saw you until you put on a pretty dress and combed the mice out of your hair? Ugh! You should’ve kept your mouth shut and let him marry your mean sister.

The Duke of Ice
The Duke of Ice - Darcy Burke Dramatic, traumatic and romantic collide in an emotional tale of soul searching and second chances. The Duke of Ice is about facing fears and owning up to mistakes. Life's greatest fear is of the unknown. Things we can't control, but always weigh on our minds. Ms. Burke always creates great characters, but for me Nick proved to be breathtaking. The tortured soul with so much love to give, but a ton of guilt to bear. My heart broke for him. Love should be a beautiful adventure, but for him it seemed to be the beginning of something much darker. A lifetime of pain. Violet was the light at the end of the tunnel. She was the key to a mystery years in the making. All he has to do is trust his heart and open his soul. Darcy Burke went in an unexpected direction, but delivered one of her most human tales to date. Violet and Nick will leave readers breathless.
