Needing Moore Series Boxed Set by Julie Richman

Holy Smokes, I read nearly 1000 pages in three days. I have never read three books so quickly in my life, until I was introduced to author Julie Richman and her hero Schooner Moore. If you are looking for a series that will make you think about love, life and family this is the series for you. I am in love with these books. The characters are written very well and the story line makes you crave for more. Clear your schedule folks when you sit down to read this series. – Lindsey, Romance Reader Girl

What Have I Been Reading

Hi Readers- My post have been few and far between lately. It is not because I am not reading. I am working outside the house and that takes a lot more of my free time. I wanted to catch up and let you know what I’ve read in the last few weeks.

Historical Romance

Rules for a proper governess 1. Rules For A Proper Governess by Jennifer Ashley
I just finished finished this one over the weekend and I really enjoyed it. My favorite thing about this read was it wasn’t about a peer and a wallflower. It was about a barrister and a thief. For all you Ian Mackenzie fans he does makes an appearance (as do all the other Mackenzie’s).


always true to her


 2. Always True to Her by Maureen Driscoll
I enjoyed the story and characters of this book. Ms. Driscoll has a way of bringing you into a family that you never want to leave. She did with the Kellington’s and now she is doing it with the Emerson’s. James and Irene are a great couple and little Anna just steals your heart. I enjoyed the plot and character development.


The Suffragette Scandal 3. The Suffragette Scandal by Courtney Milan
This was an unforgettable read. Ms. Milan keeps breaking the mold and creating stories that are fresh and new. I love the take Free has on the world and how she make a difference. She knows it may not be the biggest difference today but it could be tomorrow. What a strong message to say. It was just a great read with a hot romance. There is a side story that I felt relayed a strong message as well.

Contemporary Romance

Seduction and Snacks 1. Seduction and Snacks by Tara Sivec
Holy Buckets of Laughter was what this book was about. Actually not just this book but the whole Chocolate Lovers Series. I have never laughed so hard while reading a book. This is a book that is really fun to read because of all the laughing you’ll do. It’s very open, real and raw about sex.
*I spent the better part of my summer reading these books. So fun!


Beneath It All 2. Beneath It All by Tori Madison
Being October and Breast Cancer Awareness month (it should be every month like all cancers and diseases) I wanted to make sure I pointed out this book. This book is about a young woman (my age!) finding out she has breast cancer and the toll it has on her marriage. This is a great read. It’s still a romance but with a very important message. This read made me think about my own life and marriage.


The Matchbaker 3. The Matchbaker by Jerrica Knight-Catania
This was an easy book to read and enjoy. The family dynamic is great and the twist of magic is fun. I am looking forward to more in this series.



Happy Reading!

Review: Never Deny Your Heart by Maureen Driscoll (Kellington #5)

Sometimes you read a book and you just fall in love with the characters and the secondary characters. Then you realize it’s a series and you devour them all as fast as you can, but then you realize the author has not finished the series and you’re left waiting for the last book. So…you…wait…and wait… The wait is finally over! Below is my review for Maureen Driscoll’s Never Deny Your Heart (Kellington #5).


Rosalind Carson is a woman who has stood in the background blending for far too long. She is a smart woman who has a big heart and wants good things for her friends. Sadly, her family sees her as a means to an end. Her brother, a viscount doesn’t see Rosalind for the lovely, charming woman she is, but for the money she will bring into the retainers when she marries a nobleman five decades her senior.

William (Liam) Kellingtion, Duke of Lynwood is a man that walks into a room and all eyes are in him. Part of his charm is that he loves his family fiercely and will do anything to protect them.

Liam and Rosalind’s connection begins at the beginning of Kellington series. Between shy glances and secret conversations, their love blooms slowly. In each book we see just a little more of thier love unfold, as Rosalind is a close family friend to Liam’s sister Lizzie. Rosalind has loved Liam since she was a girl of 12. Liam doesn’t really acknowledge or discover his feelings until Rosalind is about to be married off to a man 50 years her senior. However, Rosalind has a different plan for her future that may or may not include Liam. Will Liam wake up and fight for what he wants or will he just let the one thing his heart truly desires go? 

I was so excited when this book came out I ignored my husband to read it!  This is a series you will want to start from the beginning to understand the connection between all the characters. Liam and Rosalind story is not smooth sailing and there are a few twist that you won’t see coming, which adds to the steamy factor. I have a special place for books that involve families with a strong connection and this series has it. We see all the Kellingtons together in this book helping Liam see that being is love is worth the risks. Rosalind breaks out and decides what is best for her and her life. It was a great story and series. I know, I will read it again.

You can purchase Never Deny Your Heart and other books by Maureen Driscoll on Amazon.

Review: A Taste for Scandal (Sealed With a Kiss Series #2), by Erin Knightley

It is always a great day to read a historical romance book, but it’s even an better day when you find a new author and you realize they are going to be one of your favorites. Erin Knightley is one of my new favorites. See why in my review of A Taste for Scandal.


Richard Moore, Earl of Raleigh has it all; good looks, charm, intelligence charismatic family and heir to a marquisate. He is in all standards the man to marry and all the matching making mama’s know it. However, Richard isn’t ready to settle down. He’s young, charming and just wants to live carefree for a few more years, before the daunting responsibility of marquisate is thrusted upon him. 

 Jane Bunting is a baking goddess. She owns her bakery and take cares of her younger brother. Jane is too busy being practical to enjoy any passions outside of baking a delicious scone or pie, which leaves her feeling lonely.  She doesn’t dream of what can be, because that takes away from the business she is trying to keep going for her deceased parents. She doesn’t have time for silly dreams of what could never be. 

Richard believes a woman is in distressed while passing a bakery and rushes in to be of service. He then takes action, beating the man the he feels is causing the distress. In the process of being the dashing hero he is knocked down by a woman. While the disturbance takes place the bakery is left in shambles. This begins the back and forth apology and let me make it up to you dance between Richard and Jane. After being pester by the ever so charming Richard, Jane reluctantly agrees to give Richard and his younger quick-witted sister Bea baking lessons. Richard may be an Earl, but Jane does not go easy on him. They banter back and forth and soon sparks begin to fly. The question is can an earl and a baker have a real future in society? 

 I enjoyed this book. The characters are charismatic and the story was charming. I love the connection between Richard and Jane. They really do show that there is no boundaries when love is involved even if that means sacrificing ones own heart. There are no shortage of spirited secondary characters in this book or series. The Moore family is precious and hilarious. The connection between the siblings and parents makes you want to jump in and be apart of that family, and luckily you feel like you are when reading this story. As much as I laughed in this book, there were a few moments your heart drops and you’re nearly brought to tears. That is my disclaimer to have a tissue near by. 🙂 

Erin Knightley’s writing is enchanting. I found myself gigging while reading her books. I look forward to the next book in this series Flirting With Fortune out later this year, and if you haven’t read book one in this series More Than a Stranger I suggest you do. It is about Richard’s sister Evie and best friend Benedict.

Taste of a Scandal and other books by Erin Knightley are aviable on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
