EXCLUSIVELY HISTORICAL ROMANCES
The Stud Club Trilogy:
One Dance with a Duke – some structural issues, great characters and [fans self] smolder
Twice Tempted by a Rogue – a much too literally tortured hero for my tastes
Three Nights with a Scoundrel – Dare hitting her stride with a well-intentioned rake
Spindle Cove Series:
A Night to Surrender – Good, not great.
Once Upon a Winter’s Eve – Pleasant novella
A Week to Be Wicked – delightful romp, fabulous hero
A Lady by Midnight – Fantastic smolder, sincere love story, some heavy plotting
Beauty and the Blacksmith – very good, but not great, and worth reading
Any Duchess Will Do – Strained credulity overruled by a heartfelt love story, highly recommended
Castles Ever After Series:
Romancing the Duke – hellaciously twee
Say Yes to the Marquess – fun, light romp, recommended
When a Scot Ties the Knot – meh
Do You Want to Start a Scandal? – no romantic chemistry
Girl Meets Duke Series:
The Duchess Deal – very good, recommended
The Governess Game – surprisingly entertaining plot moppets
The Wallflower Wager – pretty good
The Scandalous, Dissolute, No-Good Mr. Wright – an absolute gem of a novella
How to Catch a Wild Viscount – early novella, don’t bother, choose an option from above

Have you read “Do You Want to Start a Scandal”? It’s the latest book on the Spindle Cove series.
I read it this past weekend. It’s a library book though as I didn’t enjoy the Castles Ever After series as much as Spindle Cove and didn’t want to spend the money. What did you think of it? I thought it had its moments, but I don’t feel like I need my own copy.
Oh. I bought the book but I haven’t read it yet. I asked because I thought you’ve stopped reading the latest Tessa Dare novels.
By the way, I read “Blonde Date” and, of coarse, I loved it. It was just so lovely. Thank you again for the recommendation ☺
