Review: What A Difference A Duke Makes by Lenora Bell

The GingerSnap’s review This book was exactly what I needed this weekend while I was stuck on the couch with a cold. It’s heart-warming, full of good, honest characters, and will have you rooting for HEAs all around. I devoured it in two sittings and kind of wish I could just read it from the beginning again. Edgar Rochester is a classic grumposaurus, feelings-averse workaholic who doesn’t know how to person when he finds himself suddenly thrust into the role of father to his two vivacious twins, Adele and Michel, after the death of their mother, his former mistress. Adele and Michel are insanely bright and creative kids, but their energy and previous lack of boundaries mean they don’t understand how to fit into their new aristocratic world after a childhood spent frolicking on the beaches of France. Thankfully, Mari Perkins, whose name is suspiciously close to Marry Poppins (and […]

Review: His Outback Nanny by Annie Seaton

Review: His Outback Nanny by Annie Seaton

The Faerie Queen’s review I’m going to need to keep an eye on Annie Seaton, because I really enjoyed His Outback Nanny. I mean, I couldn’t stop. Having read a few nanny-turned-lover stories recently, it seems I have developed a taste for them. And I already know I love a good fake relationship story! His Outback Nanny very much had traditional gender roles at its heart. Ned was The Farmer, strong and hunky, the physical labourer and strategiser. Meanwhile, Jemima took the role of housekeeper, cook, and gardener, plus doing the most work to take care of Ned’s children, though he came in to lavish love on them. (Basically, he wanted to do all of the fun stuff while she handled the messy stuff.) And for their personalities, this division of labour did make sense. I can appreciate that not everyone wants the same kinds of things out of life, and despite […]

First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt “You know that nothing can ever happen between us,” he said, pulling back slightly. Her arm fell and humiliation swept through her, harsh and fierce. “Of course,” she whispered, waving a hand, praying that she’d be able to look and sound convincing. “That would be so stupid. I’m leaving. You’re starting a life here. There’s no way we could work, this would be all wrong. Right?” He stood up abruptly and ran a hand through his hair as he walked across […]

Excerpt: This Baby Business by Heatherly Bell

Hiya! Today, we’ve got an excerpt of This Baby Business by Heatherly Bell, plus a giveaway for digital versions of the first two books in the Heroes of Fortune Valley series! About the book Excerpt Carly sat on a chair in Stone’s office, streaks of mud on her chin, cheeks and nose. Blond hair wild and unruly. Short dress muddy. Even her sandals had been through the wringer. She looked like she’d been in a fight with a…well, a pig. Which told him two new things about this woman: she did not give up easily, or mind getting a little dirty in the process. Good to know. He wiped mud off her chin with the wet towel Emily had given her and bit his lower lip. “There’s an old saying. If you wrestle with a pig, you’ll get dirty. And the pig will only—” She held up her index finger. “Don’t […]
