The Rivals of Versailles by Sally Christie – Blog Tour and Review

I really liked and enjoyed Sally Christie’s fictional telling of France’s King Louis XV’s first mistresses, the Nesle sisters Louise, then Pauline followed by Marie-Anne, then briefly Diane, in The Sisters of Versailles (my review here). The intrigues of French court and how easily this King could be manipulated and lead by women to do […]

I feel like I’d been waiting so long for the fifth book in this series, and Foolproof didn’t fail me!

Review of DEFCON Darcy by A.J. Lape – Release Blitz for FOOLPROOF (DARCY WALKER #5)

Review and Giveaway – The Sisters of Versailles by Sally Christie

Historical fiction can sometimes be a bit dry, but The Sisters of Versailles is an engaging, almost soap opera-like account of five sisters in eighteenth century France–four of whom become mistresses of King Louis XV. Based on the real-life story of the Nesle sisters and written in a narrative style as if the sisters are […]

Blog Tour and Review – Beneath Still Waters by Cynthia A. Graham

I went into this book expecting a historical novel steeped in mystery, and I definitely got that…but I […]

Review and Giveaway – Night Hawk by Lindsay McKenna

  Night Hawk is the tenth installment in the Jackson Hole, Wyoming series featuring former military members in a western setting. Although this is the first book that I’ve read in this series and by this author, I didn’t have a problem jumping right in since the books are written as stand alones–featuring a new […]

Dangerous Deception by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

I’ve really enjoyed the Caster world that Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl created first in the Caster Chronicles four book series with Lena and Ethan, but I’m glad that I’ve also enjoyed the torture that Link, Ridley, and Nox have gone through in the spin off series, Dangerous Creatures. After such a major cliffhanger at […]
