While the Duke Was Sleeping was so freaking cute! As you can imagine, based on the title, it’s a Historical retelling of While You Were Sleeping. I adore the movie and I adored this book just as much! Maybe more, since it has some steamy scenes sprinkled throughout! Poppy is just a shopgirl at a florist shop, raising her teenage sister, and generally just trying to get by. She does nothing for herself except daydream about the duke who comes to buy flowers every week. At least until she tries to save the duke from a fist fight and then pushes him out of the way of a speeding carriage. You know what happens next.
Indigo was such a delightful read! I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from a Romance set on the Underground Railroad, but I ended up really enjoying it! Hester is the owner of one of the houses in her communities line of the Railroad. One night she’s brought a family and a gravely injured man, who turns out to be the Black Daniel. The Daniel goes around and takes slaves from their owners and brings them to freedom, but clearly something went wrong this time. Hester nurses him back to health despite his disagreeable personality, but once he’s on the mend, the two start getting close.
After not enjoying the first two Mercedes Thompson novels, I was hesitant to start this companion series. However, I really enjoyed Cry Wolf! Anna has only been a werewolf for three years, and much of that was spent abused by her pack. Thankfully, she was rescued by Charles and taken back to Montana to join his pack. It’s not exactly a warm welcome, and not just because of the snow. There’s a rogue wolf killing people, and it’s up to Charles to hunt it down and take it out. Easier said than done, since something more powerful is controlling the wolf.
Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper. It’s where we get to share books that have been on our wishlists forever or are newly added. My Amazon Wishlist is overflowing, so let’s see what title I’m featuring this week…
First Grave on the Right was a lot of fun! Charley Davidson is a PI, bartender, and the grim reaper. Yep, she’s a busy woman. When the book starts she’s in the middle of mind-blowing dream sex when a ghost pops in for a visit and her uncle calls her about a case. Needless to say, she’s not happy about any of this. But Charley has a job to do. Three lawyers were just murdered while their innocent client is sitting in prison for a murder he didn’t commit. On top of that, Charley needs to figure out who she’s having dream sex with and why.
This series is slowly killing my dream of space travel. Gemina jumps us from following Kady on the Hypatia to meeting Hanna and Nik on the Heimdall waystation. Hanna is the commander’s daughter, and Nik is part of a notorious crime family and her drug dealer. And it’s probably their latest drug deal which saves their lives and allows them to save the others on the station. Of course, BieTech has to take out everyone who knows about their operation, which means taking out Heimdall since the Hypatia is on its way there. But things are not as they seem on the isolated station.
