Auley was the book I‘ve been waiting for! I love a good “I‘m scarred/ugly, but an amazing guy” trope. I was a little worried about the amnesia trope- because consent. Sands did it really well though. I read this book in one sitting! All the crazy drama of the Buchanan‘s finding another wife that someone else is trying to kill 😂

Ooof. This one hit me where it hurts, over and over again. There was a lot of pain in this one, as the main two characters had continually been told that they were never good enough.

This historical fiction about the wedding of Grace Kelly and a parfumeur in the south of France felt like the perfect book to read in this amazing tub - a rare treat. Not even a minute after getting in, the hotel fire alarm went off 🤦🏻‍♀️😂

britt_brooke Well, damn! Looks like a great tub. Hope you can try again. 😆 10h

Cold-Hearted Rake | Lisa Kleypas

Pickpick

I've been working my way through Lisa Kleypas's series, the Ravenels, focusing on the Ravenel family. I read these out of order (and the first book, Cold-Hearted Rake, is not my favorite), but it really doesn't matter, though you will know who ended up with whom from previous books. (That doesn't really bother me since that fate is typically pretty obvious from page one.) ⬇️

UnabridgedPod What I like here are the unconventional women, the feminist message, and the inclusion of characters who are, for whatever reason, outsiders. These books are historical fiction set in London, so there's all the great class conflict, the women who don't fit the mold of the landed gentry, and the cold reality of ruling, which means responsibility for hundreds of tenants and servants. Great, steamy romances. (edited) 14h

I love anything set in the roaring twenties, and this did not disappoint. There are dual storylines, one in 1924 and one in 1998. I confess I don‘t see much point to the 1998 storyline yet but hopefully I will found out in the sequel. Overall, this was a little disjointed but I still found it enjoyable and would recommend it to anyone who likes historical fiction and is a fan of the jazz age. 4⭐️

The Suffragette Scandal | Courtney Milan

Pickpick

I‘ve spent the past week or so gobbling up The Brothers Sinister series and this was by far my favorite. We get Frederick “Free” all grown up and fighting the good suffragette fight, running a woman‘s newspaper, living out loud and then this wonderful, broken man comes along and they fall in admiration and love and there‘s lesbian subplot that made me cheer and I‘m going to have to spend real American dollars to have this in my collection. Cont‘d

Owlizabeth If you‘re a romance reader or are interested in romance, I‘d recommend this. Courtney Milan has great banter, not too much sexy sex, real fleshed out characters who respect each other and talk about problems and a healthy dose of feminism to temper it all. Absolutely brilliant, I want to be best friends with all of these people. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 1d

This series gets better and better with each volume. Robert comes home to England from India so he can pursue the man who killed his mentor. Charlotte had a crush on him when they were kids. And with the help of her friend (a main character from a previous book) she has to save the king from a French plot. (More stuff in my blog review.)

The Governess Affair | Courtney Milan

I do not often love books where romance is the focus, but I do love an occasional don‘t have to think to hard and know it will be a happy ending book. This fast read (under 200 pages) served the purpose on a hard to settle my Brain last night. A pick because it helped me end the day and fall asleep 🥰
