Woman Enters Left

34377818Thanks Random House Publishing Group – Ballantine and netgalley for this ARC.

Forbidden feelings, illness, and childhood experinces and flashbacks; This novel takes a roundabout way to give us the full picture. I was rooting for the all. We live a society now that would make much behavior taboo even 50 years ago. This novel make us remember and aware of all we take for granted.

cover115228-mediumThanks St. Martin’s Press and netgalley for this ARC.

I’m amazed at how authors find ways of makes the French Revolution fresh and new in different aspects and perspectives. We follow in the steps of a maid of the wardrobe and see things from her eyes. I loved her loyalty and love for her family and her employers. I was afraid, thrilled, and couldn’t put this down til I knew her fate.

Goodreads | Edit Review – Disciplined by the Duke (Lords of Discipline, #1)

cover116250-mediumThanks St. Martin’s Press and netgalley for this ARC.

This romance will appeal to wide audience even though the title and cover give the impression it’s not explicit. I was rooting for the heroine to save her sister and not lose her self-respect. You’ll have to read the novel to find out if she did or not.

Maggie Hope’s stories are always thrilling and full of nervous moments. She’s the female action star of historical mystery! I can’t wait to see how she handles the cliffhanger at the end of this one.
