Fiction Friday: Book Review- The Duke by Kerrigan Byrne

The Duke (Victorian Rebels, #4)The Duke by Kerrigan Byrne
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Cole and Ginny spend a night together when he pays for her “services”. Years pass and the two of them are unable to forget each other.
However Cole remembers Ginny as a dark-haired lady of the night and not as Imogen, the blonde nurse who helped to save his life. As time goes on, Imogen ends up living in the house next to Cole and Cole sees her as nothing more than a gold-digger.
But a secret from Imogen’s life as Ginny is about to tear her new life apart and Cole may be the only person who can help her.
There isn’t much romance in this book but it was natural which I enjoyed. The focus of this book is on Cole’s past and Imogen’s past as well as how it affects their lives now.
I loved the supporting characters from other books in this series and can’t wait to read the precious books.
This was a fun read with entertaining characters that I enjoyed immensely.

The Unexpected January Book Haul

The day after I posted my January book haul, I got an unexpected delivery. I was delighted since it was obviously books but I had no idea what books it was. I opened up the package to find two books from Jonathan Ball Publishers.

Books January Book Haul

I can’t wait to start reading these. I’ve read very few (probably none) traditionally published books. I’m also really excited to read “Almost Anastacia” which releases in May. The synopsis itself was so intriguing and drew me in instantly.

Fiction Friday: Book Review- A Faerie’s Curse (Creepy Hollow #6) by Rachel Morgan

A Faerie's Curse (Creepy Hollow, #6)A Faerie’s Curse by Rachel  Morgan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I didn’t really want to finish this book because this is the end of Calla’s part of the Creepy Hollow series. At the same time I couldn’t stop reading it. The ending was so dramatic in the previous book that I desperately needed to know what was going to happen.Calla is working on a plan to break Chase out of his mother’s childhood home. Meanwhile the Guild still thinks she and Lord Draven are evil and need to be stopped. Her family is under scrutiny and things just seem to be going from bad to worse.Rachel Morgan did not hold back at all on this novel. I cried so much because how is it possible that one girl could have such bad luck?I found the ending a bit incomplete but I’m betting it’s just going to make the next part of the Creepy Hollow series even more intriguing. This book was romantic and sad, heartbreaking and well-written. I loved seeing Violet and Ryn as more fleshed-out characters and I can’t wait to see what else happens in this world. Creepy Hollow is a great series but as time goes on the Creepy Hollow world seems to get darker and darker which makes for a highly enjoyable read.
