This HaBO is from Michelle, who wants to find this historical romance: There was this historical romance I read back in like 2006-07. This woman meets a guy who I think was either a gunslinger or an outlaw or something like that.

I think maybe because he stole money from them, but … Continue reading HaBO: Hot Porch Lovin’

Devil in Disguise by Lisa Kleypas is $2.99! This is the seventh book in the Ravenels series and Catherine gave it a B-:
Devil in Disguise is a low-stakes, sexy romance, with cameos from some of my favourite characters from the other Wallflowers and Ravenel stories. It did suffer from one significant flaw (don’t play the Our Love Is Doomed card if it will be thrown away halfway through the story).
