Review: Her Highland Rogue

Her Highland Rogue Her Highland Rogue by Violetta Rand
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I was given a free copy from net galley for a honest review.

This book has the potential to be great, however I felt it missed the mark a little. The plot is sound and the character development is good. However I felt the story line seemed hollow in parts. It felt like certain details were rushed out or missing all together. I will read more from this author to see how she grows and I have high hopes her next book will be better and I will definitely be reading it to see.

Review: The Beast of Clan Kincaid

The Beast of Clan Kincaid The Beast of Clan Kincaid by Lily Blackwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have to say first I devoured this book. When Niall is taken away from his family and brothers you felt like you were there. Niall's revenge was sweet but all revenge has a bitter edge and his is no different. Elspeth is a clever woman who keeps getting kidnapped or in trouble and Niall is always there to protect her, and their feelings for each other grow perfectly and more importantly realistically. They have their trials and their love is certainly tested but it was great to read it happen! The ending is FANTASTIC! And I will get the second in the series the day it drops on book shelves for certain.

Just in Three Months

I LOVE Net Galley.  You get the opportunity to read fantastic books and all you have to do is review them.  They don't pressure you to give positive feedback, and I don't always.  However the majority of the time I LOVE the books!  Just in the past three months I've read 6 books, two new series, and all fantastic.  I post my reviews on Goodreads primarily because it's a great way to keep track of what books I read and other book obsessed people use that site.  If you haven't heard of Goodreads, please check it out.  Here is a link to my profile: Brittany's Goodreads Profile

I will link the 6 new books I reviewed courtesy of Net Galley below:

In the Air Tonight by Lori Handeland (This introduced me to a new series by this author)
Heat of the Moment by Lori Handeland
Smoke on the Water by Lori Handeland
Led Astray: The Best of Kelley Armstrong by Kelley Armstrong (Though great short stories I think all her stories are excellent so I don't know why this is titled The Best of Kelley Armstrong!)
The Prince and I by Karen Hawkins (This introduced me to a new series by this author)
A Silver Wolf Christmas by Terry Spear

I only have one current book to read from Net Galley titled "The Rogue You Know" by Shana Galen.  She's a great author with wonderful historical romances.  I haven't read the series this book is in and I expect I will be buying the others in this series after I read this book!  Stay tuned for that review link on my Goodreads, OR sign up for Goodreads and add me as a friend!

* As stated these books were given to me for free for a honest review*
**Also just want to say these aren't the only books I've read in the past 3 months just the free ones from Net Galley**

March 2014

Spring is upon us and I'm frantically cleaning and trying to get my house ready for my youngest child's birthday party plus my annual Easter Egg Hunt.  *Pulls Hair Out!*  However I did manage to read some books this month.  Not many but enough to keep me sane!

Below is a link to the books I've read this month:

Net Galley Reviews:

These books were given to me as a gift in return for a honest personal review.  All opinions are my own.  

1.) The Unexpected Duchess (Playful Brides #1) by 

My Rating:
My Review:
I could not put this book down. I love the banter between Lucy and Derek. The series name, Playful Brides, is certainly accurate! Lucy is a unique person especially in the early 1800's. I absolutely loved how strong her character is. The plot is well thought out and perfectly paced. I loved the secondary characters and can not wait to read the next book, Unexpected Countess! The only reason I gave it a for out off five is because in a few places I thought the banter was unnecessarily drawn out. It doesn't detract from the story line, just a little tiresome in a few scenes. Definitely a must read!

2.) Dark Moon by  

My Rating: 
My Review:
I enjoyed the overall story line and plot progression. I liked the character interactions also. I think the writing could use a little work. At some points the dialogue seems more like slang or conversational more then written, if that makes sense. There are some editing issues that also should be addressed where sentences end incomplete or seem to jump about. But even with these flaws, you can still see the story evolve and suck you in. You want to see how it will end and if the good or evil will win. I want to read more about the secondary characters. As I said I love the story line, plot twists, and romance. All in all a great start to a potentially amazing series!
