Guest Review: Wild Wicked Scot by Julia London

Series:     Highland Grooms #1
Pub. Date:Dec. 27, 2016
Length:378 pages

A Highlander and his impetuous young bride discover their marriage of convenience isn't what they expected it to be when poor decisions, family drama, and politics interfere.

Aaran McKenzie was decisive, protective, and had a touch of pride and temper that didn't help their with his new young wife. Her leaving him in the dust shortly after their wedding doesn't help his heart or his confidence. It was hard not to like Aaran because he's..well, he's just a lot more likeable than Margot. A smarter man would have tossed in the towel sooner, but props to Aaran for taking his marital vows seriously. His devotion to his clan and their well-being stood out dramatically among the political pettiness being played out.

Audiobook Review: Slightly Scandalous by Mary Balogh

Series:     Bedwyn Saga #3
Pub. Date:Jan. 17, 2017
Publisher:Tantor Audio
Narrator:Rosalyn Landor
Length:11 hrs 55 min

Slightly Scandalous is the third book in the Bedwyn Saga, following a large aristocratic family in the early 19th Century. Tt was not until after I finished this audiobook that I realized that the heroine was actually introduced in a prequel to the series, which I did not know about. I wish I would have read A Summer to Remember first, as that story is such a huge part of Freya Bedwyn's history.

Series Review: The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

Roshani Chokshi is a new-to-me author and one to go on my auto-buy list. I initially received an advanced review copy of Crown of Wishes, not realizing it was the second book in the series. So that is what led me to pick up The Star-Touched Queen, Chokshi's debut novel, and I was blown away. What an outstanding entree into the writing world!
