My rating: 3 of 5 stars




When two hardheaded people fall in love, it's going to a uphill battle for neither of them are going to give a inch. The Bishop's Daughter has Susan Carroll's trademark humor and fun farce that grabs you.

When Harry comes home from Waterloo, he's shocked and amused to learn he’s being pronounced dead. He stumbles upon his own eulogy along with the revel of a very naked statue of himself. Laughing himself sick and surprising the love of his life who thought she would never see him again. Kate is shocked that she faints, kisses him silly then boxes his ears thinking Hellfire Harry was up to his old tricks. It takes helping hands from Kate's grandma and mother to get this couple finally together.

I had some trouble getting into this book, with some inconsistence toward the characters some misunderstandings that bordered around funny, annoying and overused, the worse was our heroine Kate's …

This was no where near as strong as the previous books. Grace always came across as a strong character,but still as a human being. She placed alot of clues on the back burner and the author brought up her messed up love life making her come across dumb and needy "again" something she grew out of after getting away from her ex.
One step forward, one step back.

The characters seem not like themselves this time around...

The Trouble With Sin (Devilish Vignettes #2) by Victoria Vane

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



The troublemaker trio DeVere, Ned and Simon are at it again. Victoria writing and story telling are as flawless as ever bringing joy, lots of laugh and heartbreak.

Poor Simon is in dire straits with his parents tighten the purse strings on this hopeless romantic poet. Simon finds a way out of this fix by working at the Covent Garden writing poetry for the women that work there! And Simon adores the ladies it's the perfect job!

It's wonderful to see the men we've grown to love and see the young and brass young men they once were and see what time has done to change these men into who they are now.

The Trouble with Sin was just a delightful Georgian story, that just showcases the strong friendship between Sin, Ned and DeVere!
