Too Many Inconsistancies
Persephone’s Beastly Lover: Book Three in the Werewolves of Rebellion Series - Ana Lee Kennedy

Persephone recently started working for a paranormal agency. Their next case takes them to a possessed house in Ohio, where she meets the owner, Jack.

The premise of this story sounded really good, so I was looking forward to reading it. It started out decent, then the inconsistencies began. A character would state one thing in one section and then in the next chapter it would be totally changed around. When the author references the closest city to where the story takes place, it’s evident they don’t actually know the layout of Ohio (considering I live in Ohio this was particularly irritating). The final straw for me was having the biker wear cowboy boots instead of what bikers are known to wear (I would assume this is because the story is in Ohio).

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Miss Buncle´s Book
Miss Buncle's Book - DE Stevenson

Have you met Miss Barbara Buncle? It´s the 1930s: Miss Buncle is an unmarried woman in her late thirties and she has some severe economical problems. In order to earn money she writes a book under a pen name, a book about the small English village she lives in. And since she is the most unimaginative person on this planet, it´s pretty apparent who she is writing about. And her neighbours are not amused...

 

Whenever you have a crappy day, just pick up Miss Buncle´s Book and reading it will make you feel happy. It´s cozy, delightful and utterly charming and all of my favorite characters got their personal happy ending, which made me happy. And I adored the depiction of the small village of Silverstream and its inhabitants.

 

I really love this novel and I highly recommend Miss Buncle´s Book to everyone who needs a great comfort read.

Vicious Circle (Persephone Alcmedi, Book 1)
Vicious Circle (Persephone Alcmedi, Book 1) - Linda Robertson Nice book. Stupid agenda. But still a fetching and refreshing read. A good take on Wicca as well.

Hallowed Circle by Linda Robertson
Hallowed Circle (Persephone Alcmedi, Book 2) by Linda Robertson (4-Feb-2010) Mass Market Paperback - Linda Robertson
Hallowed Circle is the second book in the Persephone Alcmedi series. And it begins when Seph is nominated to become the high 

priestess of the local witch coven. But the thing is she has way too much on her plate to actually win the testing, but when it looks like the other contestants won't be able to do good enough, she's going to go in and try to change the outcome. However, she didn't expect her vampire to show up, nor did she expect her relationship with Johnny to change, but alas it happened. Now, she must deal with everything all at once before it is too late. 

 

This book was pretty interesting. It had a lot of action and drama in it. But I felt like I was missing some of Seph's emotions during the book. I could feel some of them, but not all, even though it seemed like she was trying to make herself emotionless in some ways. 

 

So, overall the book was okay. It was a nice second addition to the series, and it kind of lets us know where Seph is at with everything going on, and what may happen from now on.

My Review: Saving Persephone by Sue London
Saving Persephone (The Haberdashers Series Book 4) - Sue London

I've been a fan of the Haberdashers since the beginning and been waiting for Robert’s story rather eagerly. I get how he felt responsible for everyone and why he helped the girls be independent and determined since he was the oldest in the group. His dark and at-times selfish attitude were just a part of what he was, and whether I liked it or not, it was still Robert. In this story, we get to see a much different side of him.

 

 

“He will do anything for someone he loves. Not in the romantic sense, how the poets would woo you. In a very real sense, unbound by any restrictions of morality or self-preservation.” 

 

 

Robert is the kind of person that stops at nothing to get what he wants, including putting those close to him in danger. Also, he’s always suspicious, always guarded, always vigilant. Thus, when he meets the enticing Imogen, he’s attracted to her but believes she might have been sent by one of his enemies to get information out of him. Lively Imogen has a special gift as she can feel other people’s emotions and see the color of their aura. This becomes handy when it comes to getting herself and the Haberdashers out of trouble but also when it comes to Robert as she gets to understand him better than anyone ever could. It wasn’t like Robert didn’t care about other’s welfare; it was more like he knew they were capable of handling themselves. It wasn’t that he was a cunning, cold-hearted man, but rather he was objective and liked order in his life to better handle any unforeseen situation and to better protect those around him. And Imogen saw past the controlling man. She was able to bring out the caring, tender, capable of all kinds of love man. All of that I liked.

 

 

“It might not be the sort of innocent adoration that many brides felt for their husbands, but she knew that what she felt for him was deep, and honest, and true. Perhaps he had a dark past, but it did not define him.” 

 

 

I always loved Robert for what he was and I liked that his heroine was a strong, passionate, determined woman as well and not a meek, virginal debutant. However, I didn't like the fact he changed, because he does change for her, and that left me with a sort of vexing feeling. It was like in the end it wasn't really Robert.

I didn't like where his arc took him and I certainly hope that is not the last I hear him of him because all that intelligence, all that cleverness, all that passion cannot, I repeat, cannot end just there! It just felt as if he'd passed on the title of Head of Haberdashers to someone else and that just felt wrong… le sigh.

 

Anywho, as with past books, there is plenty of action and funny situations. The “girls” get to prove their skills and we get to hear the story from all of their POV, including the gentlemen’s, which I thought was very gratifying. This is the 4th book in the series so I’d suggest reading the series in order to get a better idea of who is who and not feel lost by jumping right in. I will definitely continue reading the series because now more than ever I want to know where the story will go from here and because I will not deny myself the pleasure of reading one of my favorite series.

Description

In 1805 Robert Bittlesworth’s little sister and her two best friends decided to create a “boys club” because boys have more fun. Most protective older brothers would have discouraged such a thing. But Robert saw opportunity and began training them. 

Robert Bittlesworth has worked tirelessly in the Home Office for years, managing intelligence in the war against Napoleon and the Congress of Vienna. He also executed a plan to have his father exiled. Now that plan backfires when one of his father’s cronies kidnaps the Haberdashers… and the first woman he has ever truly cared about. 

Imogen Grant of Boston has traveled the world with her mother’s shipping company. She considers herself an exceptional judge of character, but she has never met anyone like Robert Bittlesworth. He is either the very best or the very worst man of her acquaintance. Can she decide which before she loses her heart?
