I'm almost through Allison Brennan's Love Me to Death, which I am enjoying even though there are definitely sections when I'm pretty sure that I'm missing a lot of backstory from earlier series.
It's not that I'm confused. It's just that there are a lot of things/people/events referenced that clearly happened in more detail elsewhere.
Something About Emmaline was the book that got me into historical romance to begin with. I hope you enjoy it!
I Thoroughly enoyed it. The premise of a made-up wife and the resulting havoc was hilarious. The h&h were perfect together and the story was great fun. The side issue of the cousin expecting to inherit from such a young bachelor was fairly implausible, but what the hey.
I am about to start This Rake of Mine, which is the next book in the series.
I also started on the Bachelor Chronicles series. Currently I'm reading Love Letters from a Duke.
I am reading the Bachelor Chronicles too. Just finished This Rake of Mine. As usual, I sort of read them out of order and read Love Letters From a Duke first. I liked that book a lot and it sent me off to read the series. Hope you enjoy it.
As for me, I met your heroine Felicity for the first time in This Rake of Mine.
The books are kind of silly and implausible but they are fun.

I find the Bachelor Chronicles great fun. My favorite so far probably remains the prequel Something about Emmaline but the more recent Mad About the Duke was lovely fun as well. Something about Elizabeth Boyle's plots makes me smile - so often they seem positively Wildean (particularly the end of Something About Emmaline....
Just finished My Dearest Enemy by Connie Brockway. She's a new author for me, but based on this one I'll look for others.
The Spanish Match by Brennan Purcell
There's elements of romance in the story.
I'm getting excited for the release of "The King's Mistress" by Sandy Blair. Has anyone else read any of her books?
Well.... I had a lot of books from the Rogue Angel series and the "Tale of the five hundred kingdoms" series, so last night I started reading The Fairy Godmother by Mercedes Lackey. I was a bit nervous that this would be a weird supernatural kind of book, but instead I'm falling in love with this gentle fairy tale inspired story that has absolutely captured my imagination. I'm counting down the minutes until I can go home and curl up in my chair with this one!
Finished Deadlocked - I must say that I am ready for the series to be finished.
I finished The Rules of Engagement: The Reasons for Marriage. Unfortunately most of this anthology (300+ pages) was comprised of a reprint of a Stephanie Laurens book and the other two stories were very small...
I finished two books so far this weekend, Unveiled by Courtney Milan which was just so-so and dull for me, even though everyone raved about it, I seem to be a dissenting voice in regard to it. The other book I finished was London's Perfect Scoundrel by Suzanne Enoch. At first I hated the hero but by the end I loved him! Slow start but had a great wrap up. Now I'm reading The Bridal Season by Connie Brockway and The Perfect Mistress by Victoria Alexander.
I'm halfway through an old Silhouette Shadows called The Haunting of Brier Rose by Patricia Simpson. It's creepy because the heroine's family are incestuous, so her grandfather has been stalking and fondling her while she sleeps.
Just finished Catching Jordan - I didn't like it as much as I liked Dairy Queen.
So I started Fifty Shades of Grey. Not the type of book I usually read . . . you know, a contemporary romance. I can see how it started off as Twilight fan fiction.
Anyone else read it? I was surprised it wasn't mentioned in this thread or last month's since it's a bestseller and all. Is no one in this group reading it or are we just not talking about it?
