Pink Box of Treasures

Pink Box of Treasures

Behold the glory of the pink box. After an absolute nightmare of a day yesterday, I was delighted to find this box of treasures upon my doorstep. Chock full with books I haven’t read (an increasingly difficult feat, I admit), I giggled delightedly as I unpacked. The main book in this month’s FFBox is Mika Jolie’s The […]

An Unseen Attraction by KJ Cha...

<i>An Unseen Attraction</i> by KJ Charles

If you’re a fan of historical romance that reads less like a romantic comedy and more like a gothic novel, I cannot recommend KJ Charles highly enough. This book is the first in a new series, so is also an good place to get in on the ground floor of an expanding universe. Charles is […]

Sexy Living by Regina Cole

The Daredevil Snared by Stepha...

<i>The Daredevil Snared</i> by Stephanie Laurens

The Daredevil Snared is the third installment in Laurens’ recent quartet about the Frobisher brothers. This installment is about Caleb, the youngest brother, and Katherine, a women enslaved at a mine. The series is not one which can be read out of order, so if this is your first introduction to the Frobishers, turn back […]

Chasing Lady Amelia by Maya Ro...

<i>Chasing Lady Amelia</i> by Maya Rodale

Have you ever wondered what reality TV would look like in Regency England? Like, what would the Kardashians be getting up to and how would they be portrayed? Ever wanted to read a book about a Regency scandal that went a little beyond someone getting caught in an orangerie? Then Chasing Lady Amelia is the book […]

Jesus, Pope Francis and a Protesta...

<i>Jesus, Pope Francis and a Protestant Walk Into a Bar</i> by Paul Rock and Bill Tames

  Y’all, I am not going to lie. I requested this from NetGalley without even clicking to find out more info. The title and the cover were enough to draw me completely in. I didn’t know who Paul Rock was (the Senior Pastor of Second Presbyterian in Kansas City, MO), nor did I know that […]

What to Do with a Duke by Sall...

<i>What to Do with a Duke</i> by Sally MacKenzie

  Sally MacKenzie is one of those authors I’ve known of for years. I saw her books on shelves, heard them recommended on podcasts, but for whatever reason never picked one up. When I saw What to Do with a Duke up for request on NetGalley I jumped at the chance to get to know this […]

  Robyn Carr is an author known for gentle romances set in small towns where people who were broken find wholeness. Wildest Dreams, the latest in her series set in Thunder Point, is no exception. Blake and Lin Su are our couple in this one – but other familiar characters play featured roles as well. Carr […]

Crazy Thing Called Love by Mol...

<i>Crazy Thing Called Love</i> by Molly O’Keefe

  I was totally swept up in this story. Trope alert: this is second-chance love at its best. Maddy and Billy were married lifetimes ago when they were both young and living in Pittsburgh. Billy was drafted into the NHL quickly into their marriage and decided that his free pass to puck bunnies was more […]
