Review: The Bounty Hunter’s Baby by Erica Vetsch

May Contain Spoilers

I checked this out of the library on a whim. So glad I did. This is a feel good romance with a pinch of danger. Thomas is a bounty hunter, and he’s after cattle rustler and murderer Jase Swindell. When he finally thinks he has Swindell captured, he has an unpleasant surprise. The murderer has a pregnant girlfriend who interferes with his capture, and then goes into labor! Poor Thomas does the best he can, but Anna, suffering from consumption, doesn’t live to see her son. Instead, Thomas does the right thing and takes the baby to the only safe place he knows; Esther’s ranch.

Review: Lord Sebastian’s Secret by Jane Ashford

May Contain Spoilers

Review by Poo Penny

There wasn’t anything in this book that was asking me to keep reading. The chemistry between Sebastian and Georgina was tolerable, but they are already betrothed, and they already like each other. The only conflict is that Sebastian first began to court her for her money, and then later decided that she was more than that, and has never told her the truth. There is no good back and forth between the two of them, so I was pretty bored. I liked Georgina’s little sisters, they at least had some kind of personality.

Mini Review: To Wed A Scandalous Spy by Celeste Bradley

May Contain Spoilers

Review by Poo Penny

I am torn about this book, on one hand I enjoyed the premise. An Earl undercover compromises his reputation for his country, and becomes known as Lord Treason, while searching for the real person committing treason. He finds himself one morning with a young woman whom he inadvertently compromised, so he proposes. Seems reasonable enough. Willa says yes, but all of a sudden she hates him. What? She said yes! I didn’t get the flip flop of her opinion.

I have heard good things about Beverly Jenkins’ books, so when the opportunity arose to be part of the blog tour for Breathless, I jumped at the chance.  I thought it would be fun to ask Poo Penny to read and review the book, too, so we could give you two opinions of the title.  Poo was not a fan; this was not her cup of tea. I had a mixed, but overall, positive reading experience.  Check out our reviews and then enter for a chance to win a copy of Breathless for yourself!

Poo Penny’s Review:

All right, I am sorry. I really tried. I wanted to really like this one. But, it had a few things already going against it that I don’t typically like in my romances. First, its a western, and second, its a western. Alright, so I guess that didn’t sink in when my Aunt told me it was a western, all I heard was it was Avon Books, Dare’s publisher, and I was like, Tessa Dare! I love her.

Review: The Duke by Kerrigan Byrne

May Contain Spoilers

Review by Poo Penny

Well, first let me say I found the history in this book quite interesting. I quite liked that bit.

What I didn’t like was Collin in the beginning. Ugh! He is in a brothel and he sees Ginny serving, and he wants her. He must have her. So he pays for her, no one else can touch her. And she kind of likes the attention, but she’s a virgin. She’s like, no! I don’t do this boss, and the boss is like, you will because I’m an a$$hole. So she and Collin do it, and of course he has the girthiest man parts, and wow that was a weird scene. He takes her virginity, and then she lets him cry. Whatever. Flash forward to a year later, and she has been thinking about him ever since. WHAT? This is where I kept reading only because I liked the background, and I was so mad at Imogen(Ginny) for being obsessed with Collin.
