Workspace with computer, journal, books, coffee, and glasses.

Welcome back to Wednesday Links! We are in December! Today is my dear brother’s birthday. He’s turning 28 and I get to visit him in Germany in March. Honestly, the only thing getting me through my holiday season right now. How was everyone’s Thanksgiving, if you celebrated? The food at my apartment was delicious.

Help A Bitch Out

HaBO: Hot Porch Lovin’

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. They end up having to go on the run because his former posse or whatever wants to kill him and are chasing them. I think maybe because he stole money from them, but … Continue reading HaBO: Hot Porch Lovin’

Book Review

After Dark with the Duke by Julie Anne Long

After Dark with the Duke

CW: discussions of sexual harrassment and an instance of non-graphic sexual assault. Friends, I stayed up all night reading this book. And this was no ordinary night…I had just had surgery (with great results!) but the after effects of anesthesia (which usually leaves me super sleepy) were powerless in the face of this tremendous romance. Two foolish peers have fought a duel over an opera singer. The outcome? The object of the duel, our rising-star … Continue reading After Dark with the Duke by Julie Anne Long

Books on Sale: Devil in Disguise by Lisa Kleypas & More

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).
