In case you're wondering I'm still alive! I've been reading some but haven't felt inspired to review. I've been reading older books, mostly historicals. I've recently read:

Lessons in French by Laura Kinsale
Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase
The Forbidden Rose by Joanna Bourne

Loved them all and want more! I keep referencing my guest post during Ashley March's March Madness where I solicited recommendations for great historical romances with feisty, strong heroines and tortured heroes. So far the recommendations have been spot on.

Do you all have any recommendations for me that fit that bill? I love me some REALLY tortured heroes. I have Delilah Marvelle's series on my radar; I hear they're quite different and have deeply troubled heroes. I also like the friends to lovers troupe. So y'all, even though I'm not reviewing, I'm reading and I'm hoping for any additional recommendations along these lines.

Hopefully I'll get my reviewing mojo back here shortly!


  1. I've heard Lord of Scoundrels is really good, I'll have to give that one a try. I haven't read any tortured heroes lately, but as soon as I read one, you know I'll pass it on! Hope you get your mojo back soon:)

  2. I think sometimes you just need to go back and read old-favorites, and feel good.

    Have fun.

  3. Great to hear from you! Hmmm, historical romances with tortured heroes. Tortured heroes are not my favorite, I prefer reforming rogues LOL. However, I'd recommend Love in the Afternoon by Lisa Kleypas. That's the one that comes to mind. If you're simply in the mood for historicals, Passions of a Wicked Earl and Pleasures of a Notorious Gentleman by Lorraine Heath :P Emma wildes writes great historicals as well :)

  4. I am probably the only one who wasn't crazy about Lord of Scoundrels. I mean, it was good... I just didn't see why everyone is SO over the moon about it.

    Have you read Duke of Shadows by Meredith Duran? Or Broken Wing by Judith James?

    I haven't read it yet, but I've heard nothing but fabulous things about The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie by Jennifer Ashley.

  5. Hey Mollie,
    Just stopping by to say hello. I've had this strong historical pull these past few weeks, too. I have read To Save the Devil by Kate Moore~ Book 2 in the Sons of Sin and The Duke's Captive by Adele Ashworth. I get into these historical moods and it can go on for months. Have a great week!

  6. Thanks for all the comments ladies. Sorry I've been MIA.

    Christine, I really enjoyed Lord of Scoundrels but it feels like it gets a little overhyped! I haven't read Duke of Shadows but I LOVED Broken Wing and Lord Ian!!!! :D
