Review: How a Lady Weds a Rogue

How a Lady Weds a Rogue
How a Lady Weds a Rogue by Katharine Ashe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love these historical type romances.
This one was fast-paced, with a touch of unique.
It dealt with alcoholism, but it didn’t rule the story.
It was obvious the author put a lot of research into the aspect, and it made the story, not broke it!

Review: Just One Last Night

Just One Last Night
Just One Last Night by Helen Brooks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was heartbroken through-out the story.
She fell down the stairs and lost a child, and blamed herself. She told herself that she would be a terrible mother and left her husband, who loved her and never blamed her.
I love that he did everything he could to bring her back.
The surprise pregnancy wasn’t much of a surprise but it is a blessing in disguise.
It was a fast read, but a beautiful one!

Review: A Night in the Palace

A Night in the Palace
A Night in the Palace by Carole Mortimer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

“Chapter 4, and he has announced he’s keeping her hostage, basically, until her brother returns his sister … whom the brother eloped with … did you follow that?”

Yeah, that described the whole book in a sentence. Oh, and they fell in love. Of course they did. In two days.

I’m not saying that true love/love like that doesn’t happen, but two days? And he’s chasing around the world for her? That just doesn’t seem true.

“I have never seen hair quite this colour before. Like sunlight caught in moonbeams.”
I love the descriptions though.

So, the story was good, but it was the same thing. Yes, I know. I’m reading a romance novel. A Harlequin Presents at that, but I would LOVE a story that is more unique, not the same formula over and over!

5 Lesser Things Known About Me

WIN_20131111_191131

  1. Most people know I have trich, but most do not realize that it started when I was a freshman, when I was living in a youth home. It was the one thing I could control about my life. I couldn’t control my blow-ups, no matter how hard I tried. I couldn’t control the rollercoaster ride that had become my life. Now, though, it controls me, as most forms of OCD tend to do.
  2. I love to be organized. It doesn’t show in my housekeeping at all, but if you need to find something on the computer? You’ll have absolutely no issues doing it. I’m almost anal about it. It’s why I have to have my own log-on with the computers. I hate clutter and mess with computers.
  3. I am not as unassuming and innocent as people think. People see me and think “little girl, weak and puny” because I’m 5’4″ and about 125lb. They don’t know that there is a spine of steel inside of me, and I will not back down. It also means that I burn my bridges quite a bit. I also usually have no remorse about the bridges being burnt.
  4. People assume that I’m a stuck-up, snotty bitch because I’m quiet. People who know me know the truth. I’m loud, I’m obnoxious, and I’ll argue you to death. If I know you. If I don’t? I’ll be hiding in the corner, trying to blend in, hoping no one notices me.
  5. I’ve only been drunk once in my life, and that was right before I turned 30. No one seems to believe that, but it’s the honest truth. Heck, it wasn’t even that drunk. i have been tipsy, and less than sober before that (and after), but never actually drunk. Josh has video proof on his phone that he’s willing to show to anyone, and well, everyone.
