Review | Lick by Kylie Scott

  Okay. I have a weakness for the rock star trope and any tropes related to marriage. As soon as I saw that this story had both, I had to read it! Lick has such a nice premise. After celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas, Evelyn Thomas wakes up […]

Review | Shadows Over Longbourn by Jann Rowland

  Shadows Over Longbourn is a variation in which the Bennet sisters, as distant relatives of the Darcy family, were forced to be under Mr. Darcy’s care.  This story obviously deviated from the original, and yes, some of the characters’ personalities were not as they were in Pride and Prejudice, […]
