As you probably already know, it is the month of my birthday! As such, I’m leaning hard into the romance genre with my list of books to review because...well, I really like reading romance novels. I came across A Rake’s Redemption in one of the email lists I subscribe to and it seemed promising. Here’s a quick synopsis:
I learned about A Week to Be Wicked, by Tessa Dare, from a link that Jeriann sent me. Knowing my love of all things science and of all things fiction, she sent me a list of books about females in science and mathematics. Some of the books are fiction and some are non-fiction, but all are about a woman working in a STEM field. Anyway, this book caught my eye because I haven't read a lot of period romances recently...and also because the main character is a geologist, a subject which I was mildly obsessed with in high school.
It’s the end of February, and chances are you’ve had to watch at least one “romantic” movie that made you want to gag and roll your eyes. Don’t you wish that a movie could have romance without being super sappy? Maybe have a sword fight or two in there? Perhaps a harrowing battle with Rodents Of Unusual Size?
I found To Wed His Christmas Lady on Kindle over the summer when I was going through what I call a “fluff book phase.” In other words, my life was full of stressors and I wanted books that I could escape into without any thriller- or suspense-induced tension. My fallback here is period romance novels (as long as they don’t go into any espionage or war settings) because most of the “tension” in these books revolves around emotional understanding, miscommunications, and whether the heroine loses her virginity before or after the wedding - no physical tension. No one is at risk of dying and there is always a Happily Ever After (HEA) in it for me.
