Books Update

I finished Nine Rules To Break When Romancing A Rake and I loved it! It was the best historical I’ve read in ages – I was truly blown away by the sweetness, the characterization, and the hot hot sexxoring. Oh gosh, I just enjoyed it so much.

I also just finished another 1980s Sally Beauman pre-Destiny Harlequin, The Devil’s Advocate. I was puzzled by this book; it lacked Beauman’s usual pizzaz. Beauman’s classic set up and characterization was in place: young, innocent woman and debonaire, wealthy older man, England and Italy, and the inevitable Big Misunderstanding. There was something oddly lacking though — just not quite enough action and a lot of thinking and pondering.

She uses some of the same lines and same images over and over again, which I actually like. I will read anything I can get my hands on by Sally Beauman.

On Dear Author, Jane reviewed self-pubbed, Working Arrangement, which she pointed out had some striking similarities to another 1990s book, In Bed With The Boss. I downloaded Working Arrangement and Jane bought me a copy of In Bed With The Boss for comparison. I’ll try to write up my findings by this weekend.

I also recently had a book swap with a friend. This was my haul:

A final book note, according to Goodreads, I’ve read 50 books so far this year. 90% are romances.
