All’s Fair in Love and Scandal by Caroline Linden

I read Caroline Linden’s best book first. It’s One Night in London from the trilogy “The Truth About the Duke”, but I haven’t gotten around to reviewing it yet, although it is on my “Re-Read and Review List”. (Linden books I have gotten around to reviewing can be found here.) Having enjoyed that first book …

When I Met My Duchess by Caroline Linden

I enjoy Caroline Linden and have read many of her books, but I haven’t gotten to the point where I’d call her an autobuy author yet. I Met My Duchess was originally published as one of four overlapping novellas in the romance anthology At The Duke’s Wedding. Having read it as a standalone story, I …

Love and Other Scandals and The Truth About Love by Caroline Linden

Caroline Linden is on my woefully short Fingers Crossed for Potential list.

His Road Home by Anna Richland
