Progress Report: Silk Is For Seduction
Well, I don’t know if 7% can really be considered “progress,” but WHATEVS. This book is going to be magnificent, and I’m willing to bet it’ll be one of Chase’s bests. I already love the heroine, and in case you haven’t seen me mention it the last thirty times, THIS BOOK IS ABOUT FASHION AND DRESSMAKING. They just met at an opera house. She removed a...
katalysis asked: Hi! I recently read your review of When the Duke Returns by Eloisa James, and you mentioned that you have read (and not quite liked) Jemma's story. If James' intention was to prolong the resolution to that story until hJemma's own book, she succeeded because I really wanted to read it.

A couple of high-gravity beers decided to try Lucy Sullivan Is...
beresbel asked: Hey, so I was wondering: Got any stories that are kind of like Ever After? (The movie with Drew Berrymore, which, yes, I am currently watching.) I am just curious, because, damn. Could be a really great book. With, you know, more than kissing.

There were a few funny passages, because it’s Eloisa James, but I started wondering when the sparkle had gone out of my relationship with historical romance. Genre fiction is hard,...

In which I finally finish The Chesapeake Bay Saga
I HAVE FINISHED! SOON I WILL REVIEW OTHER BOOKS NOT BY NORA ROBERTS! Ali basically ignored this book in her review so I’ll give a few more thoughts. Our hero here is Seth, who was the foster kid up adopted by the Quinn brothers in the rest of the series. It’s about 15 years later. The heroine is a DC society refugee who’s set up a completely adorable flower shop in St. Christopher. I loved...
