Meet Andrew Clifton From Elizabeth Michels How to Lose a Lord in 10 Days or Less and Giveaway

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Good morning, Andrew!  Describe yourself in five words or less.

[Andrew Clifton]  Good afternoon. I am Lord Amberstall, gentleman of the ton, horse breeder, and…out of words? Surely not. Well, I wouldn’t want to bend the rules of this fine establishment. It seems a nice place, although I believe the horse portrayed on that “button” just there should be seen to—she appears quite ill. As for describing myself I suppose I’ve done an adequate job of it. Lady Katie Moore called me, “Fastidious with old-maid tendencies,” only yesterday. I recall her words quite clearly, but you shouldn’t listen to a lady who wears breaches to tea with a duchess when discussing such a subject. She most likely thinks the same of the grooms in the stables who choose to wash before their dinner.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share a typical day in your life?

Novella Review: For Her Spy Only by Robyn DeHart

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I picked up For Her Spy Only because I was in the mood for a quick read.  I enjoyed this quite a bit, but thought the ending was very rushed.  Maybe I just liked the characters so much that I would have liked to get know them even better.  There’s some intrigue, adventure, and an unconventional hero, which was a refreshing change.  Alistair couldn’t be further from a smooth talking operator, and I enjoyed that Winifred accepted him for who he was, and the thought of changing him never crossed her mind.

Manga Review: Stepping on Roses Vol 9 (Final) by Rinko Ueda

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

Now that I have a nifty second-hand treadmill, I find myself reading more digital manga.  It’s just so easy to march along on the track, flipping pages every few seconds.  The workouts go by much faster, I’m getting caught up on some of the series I’ve been neglecting, and I’m getting healthier while I’m multi-tasking.  Who could ask for more?
