Readers–When you see the name Renee Bernard you think historical romance, not anymore. Ms. Bernard has written a romantic comedy with slight paranormal elements and I have to say it’s awesome.
Holy buckets of awesomeness I really enjoyed this book. Ms. Bernard creates a world that is intoxicatingly clever and fun. The dialog in this book is addicting and their no doubt you will laugh out loud many times while reading this book. How can you not laugh when the Archangels are having a poker night? It’s fabulous. The hero, Luke aka Lucifer is dreamy and sweet, yes, Lucifer is sweet (you’ll just have to read the book). He is CEO of H.E.LLC, yep you read that correctly, see there is that wit I am telling you about. Jayne is a heroine you’ll fall in love with. She is the typical girl next door trying to shine in the workforce and maybe find a date. Along with her bff and parents the cast of characters are amazing. Oh, wait, I forgot one character that stole my heart… His name is Malcolm and he is Lucifer’s personal assistant and let me tell you he is everything HOT and STEAMY. 🙂
Well done Ms Bernard! I am looking forward to his series.
The Rogue’s Proposal is the second book in the House of Trent series by Jennifer Haymore. This is wicked sensual romance between Lord Lukas Hawkins and Mrs. Emma Curtis, with twist and terns that make this story a fun read.
Lord Lukas Hawkins is a second son that lives in the shadow of his elder brother the Duke of Trent. He is second best in everything and with devastating secrets he truly feels he is not worth the air he breathes. The only thing keeping him going is the struggle to find his mother the Dowager Duchess of Trent. She has gone missing or has been kidnapped and the Hawkins’ are desperately trying to find her. Luke has taken on the responsibility and will stop at nothing to find his mother and perhaps the redemption he seeks for his soul. When he encounters a sultry beauty he may find the answers to the questions he is seeking about his mother and his soul.
Mrs. Emma Curtis has been betrayed and left penniless by the one person who should have protected her, her husband. She is out to find the man that destroyed her husband and family even if that means teaming up with a known rogue to seek the answers she craves. Emma is strong and resilient but when the handsome Lord Lukas Hawkins begins to break down the barriers Emma finds she is seeking answers to questions she didn’t know how to voice.
Wow! What hot sensual intriguing story that Ms. Haymore has written. Emma and Lukas are a powerful duo. They both have a resilient mind and will stop at nothing to find the answers to their questions (no spoilers). Not only are they seeking answers they both hold secrets; especially Luke that are heart breaking The strength they find through one another is heart warming. This story has it all; mystery, sexual tension, comedy, romance secrets, sibling rivalry and so so much more. I enjoyed this book and it was great follow up to the first book in this series The Duchess Hunt and I look forward to the next book.

Received an ARC copy from Netgalley for an honest review.
Readers, I come to you for suggestions today. I have had some crazy life changing developments happen this week and I need some romantic comedy reading. Don’t get me wrong I love my historical’s and I will always read them, but I need some major laughter right now. If I could find historical romantic comedy that would be even better, but I need some laughs.
