Captives of the Night (Scoundrels, #2)
My favorite Chase book ever! The Comte d'Esmond is srsly hawt. And the heroine is a painter in 19th-century France! Can you say right up my alley?

Snowball in Hell
Well that ending was rather abrupt. Somehow left feeling doubtful these two worked it out.

What Happens in London (Bevelstoke, #2)
It's not that this is a bad book, it's just that I don't feel any chemistry between the hero and heroine at all. Oh, and it keeps putting me to sleep....more

A Spy in the House (The Agency, #1)
For the most part this book is okay, but it lost me when Mary's race was used as the big story twist. I'm not down with that. Also, James is an ass.

Dear Karen Essex: Have you ever read a paranormal romance? Because you probably should have before you wrote this book.

Libertine's Kiss (Rakes and Rogues of The restoration #1)
The last third was a considerable improvement. If it hadn't had that insultingly long-ass prologue, I probably would have enjoyed it more.

The Scandalous, Dissolute, No-Good Mr. Wright
Overall pretty fun, although it had a prologue and that kind of pissed me off. A prologue in a novella? Really.
