I like cheesy romance books set in the regency times. Are they fine literature? Nope. Are there ever any real surprises? Nah. But they are satisfying and fun anyway.

I'm a big fan of Amanda Quick romances and recently started reading Candace Camp. This is a stand alone book (yes, I'm a sucker for trilogies or multi-series books) but it was still quite fun. Usually the female characters of these times have to be such sticklers for their reputation and never get to have any fun, but Camp seems to b

I cannot stand anachronistic books passing themselves off as historical romances. Lasted for about 100 pages and gave up, life's too short. Glad I did not pay any money for it but not glad for the precious minutes I waisted on this awful book that thinks writing contemporary characters in costume is all a historical romance is. Will avoid this writer like the plague in the future.

PAROLA DEL MESE: lettera

In realtà sono tre stelle e mezzo. Si mi è piaciuto, ma la parte iniziale non mi ha convinto più di tanto.
Domani faccio una recensione decente..ora è l'una di notte ed è il caso che io vada a letto ;)

Okay eccomi.
Il libro mi è piaciuto. Julia vuole riabilitare il nome della famiglia e scagionare suo fratello accusato di aver sottratto soldi da un fondo che gestiva con tre suoi amici e per non aver retto allo scandalo si è suicidato.

Julia crede che in realtà sia stato Lord

Immergersi in un romance storico dopo essersi abbuffati di contemporanei, potrebbe rivelarsi un soffice balsamo che allieta la mente e stimola i sensi di noi, infaticabili lettrici romantiche. A maggior ragione se questi è un romanzo arricchito da una fragrante storia d'amore e di passione e condito con una generosa dose di battibecchi e tensione. L'eta è quella Regency, l'ambientazione ovviamente non poteva non essere che Londra. Julia Armiger è una d

Swept Away, Candace Camp (B) - This was my first Camp novel and while I enjoyed it, I wasn't overwhelmed by it. It feels just a little dated to me, and overall, the first part of the story is a little disjointed from the second half. The first act is almost farcical in that the heroine believes the hero is a criminal who set up her brother and embezzled a fortune. She and her family members, including servants, decide to kidnap the hero and coerce him into confessing. Somewhere within the silly ...more

I liked this book in spite of itself. It starts out well, and even though there is a been there done that feel, it is well written - caveat, the heroine, the 'strong' female in the tale, ought not to have been let out without a keeper so she gets a bit tedious and I had to skip great bits of her fretting about the poor job she's doing - not that this stopped her. The hero is decent. The end is a train wreck, but by then you're inured.

Took me forever to finish I didn't like that the hero was more concerned with bedding the heroine and that the heroine at times seemed to waiver between I am not a loose woman to he is touching my breast and laying me down in the carriage it took me month to finish and I only did because I got bored and wanted to see if it got better. Really more of a 2,5

it's a 3-4 star for me. i love the characters and there are funny moments but I feel like it hasn't reach its potential. I feel like the long conversations between other characters are a bit distracting
