Video of the Day–Loving the Governess

There is just something about the boss falling for the governess–whether he is a dashing Austrian Naval Captain, a gorgeous, British Broadway producer, or a slick, Aristocratic spy.  The book I’m currently reading, I Spy a Duke by Erica Monroe, falls into the third category (not the only one I’ve read, btw).  In it, James, Duke …

Video of the Day–Don’t Confuse Them with Sesame Street

When I was reading the 90’s Playlist Anthology last week, I kept thinking about Avenue Q, in particular the songs It Sucks to Be Me and I Wish I Could Go Back to College (this one especially for Smells Like Teen Spirit). In Smells Like Teen Spirit, Rory wanted to go back to the life she had when …

Books Coming Out This Week (9/27-10/4)

Several of the books I’ve reviewed thanks to Netgalley are coming out this Tuesday.  I try to label the reviews as to when they’re coming out, but in case you forgot, here is a list of the three coming out on September 29th. Falling for Her by Sandra Owens: Ms. Owens is quickly becoming one …

Review of “I’ll Never Let You Go” by Mary Burton

The other day, I stepped out of my comfort zone with a romantic suspense novel written by an author I’ve never heard of before.  If you read my post about why I usually just read historical romance novels, then you know why I don’t usually do that.  I’ve just gotten a little to cynical when …

Video of the Day–An Ode to Erotomania

The book I’m reading, Mary Burton’s I’ll Never Let You Go, is about a woman whose ex-husband nearly killed her four years earlier and is back to finish the job.  The scenes from the ex’s perspective keep reminding me of this song.  My mom used to play this every once in a while and it always …

Review of “Christmas Cottage/Ever After” by Samantha Chase

It is that time of year again–the days are getting shorter, the sun starts setting before Jeopardy is over, the new television season is starting, and Christmas books are coming out.  For me, and other people who use Netgalley, Christmas books start coming out much earlier than they do for other people.  I already reviewed …

Review of “Devoted in Death” by J.D. Robb

The In Death series has been one of my favorites for the past 11 years (boy does that make me feel old).  I can still remember the first time I read a full J.D. Robb novel–I was sitting in my backyard in New York, lounging on one of the chairs while my cousin was swimming …

Review of “Cinderella’s Shoes” by Shonna Slayton

As soon as I hit publish on the post about Cinderella’s Dress, I jumped right on into Cinderella’s Shoes (provided to me from Netgalley), the second (and final?) book in the series.  Before I go any further, I want to say that if you have not read the first, stop right now.  Don’t go any further. There …
