February Historicals

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! The soup pot in my kitchen is going to get another workout this week--our warm weather appears to have moved out again. The good news is that my TBR pile is still growing, so I have plenty to keep me occupied while we're stuck in the house. I just got a packed box full of review books yesterday morning, so my March pile is getting taller. You should see the first of those next week, because I've nearly finished with the February releases.

Don't forget to pop into the forum to join our February Book Club Discussion. Also, for the writers among us, we're doing a Book In A Week (BIAW) challenge in my writing forum next week to get moving on our goals for the year, so feel free to join us.

Now, on to the books.... First is Joanna Novins's second book, Souvenir of Love
Souvenir of Love
(Berkley). This time out, James Dinsmore aids his sister--still put out over not being asked to marry Rafe in the last book--in ruining Lady Elizabeth Harcrest (Rafe's sister for those of you who haven't yet read the first book), but finds himself bound to this young woman in ways he couldn't have imagined. Elizabeth's naivete works in some instances, but in others makes her appear spoiled, and James seems far too mature for her at times. Then, too, this is set against the French revolution, so you know this pair will be gadding about the French countryside at some point. If you're a fan of this era, you might want to try this one. If not, perhaps you won't. Of Cupid's five arrows, this one's earned two and a half.

Next is Julia Ross's (AKA Jean Ross Ewing) The Wicked Lover
The Wicked Lover
(Berkley). Imagine Dove's, or rather Robert Dovenby, surprise to find a young woman masquerading as a young man, tied to his bedpost after a huge public scene with his mistress. Sylvie Georgiana is spying for the Duke of Yveshire in exchange for enough money to stay in England. Working for Dove wasn't part of the plan, but it'll aid her spying nicely. Of course, she assumes that her disguise is foolproof. I like Dove much better than some of Ms. Ross's past heroes who're extremely dark and tortured. Dove has a sense of humor, and of honor. I quite enjoyed this one, and am giving it four arrows.

Until next time, happy reading!
