Sometimes an American girl needs to read some smut about a hot English knight from the 16th century 😍

LibrarianRyan This is the book that made me hate time travel novels. But I love all her other books. 4mo

SO SO GOOD! I‘ve had insane things going on lately at home and this was the exact story that I needed to keep me going. A time-travel historical #romantsy by one of THE BEST.

What I loved most was how the author detailed the 1500‘s foods, cleanliness, medical care, entertainment, hygiene. The narrative included what we *think* about the 1500‘s vs what her research actually suggested and it was fascinating! The audio with Steve West is perfection.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa This one is still a favorite of mine! 7mo
Christinak I was just discussing with a friend the other day what a great classic this is! An absolute favorite! ❤️ 7mo
stacybmartin This is one of my absolute favorite romances of all time! 7mo
Slajaunie I love this one as well! 💚 7mo

“Different. A good story finally.
A wonderful ending - Do not peep ahead.”

This is scribbled in the front cover of my current read from the library (tagged above). So fun to find notes like this!! 📖🙌🏻😍

(I‘m also listening to the audio narrated by Steve West 💯✔️)

Slajaunie I read this book many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it! 7mo
intothehallofbooks @Slajaunie Yes!! I just finished and I loved every bit of it! So so good!!! 7mo

This was an enjoyable story, despite the fact that the heroine was a wishy-washy doormat and the hero was a shameless womanizer.
I can't say that I liked the ending very much.

I am #crazyinlove with Jude Devereaux. The tagged book and the Velvet series are my faves.

Cinfhen I‘ve NEVER read this author 🙄and I‘m still not able to tag people!!! Is anyone else having the same problem? !?! 1y
Lovesbooks87 @Cinfhen I am! So frustrating! 1y
BarbaraBB I don‘t know this author either, but I guess I must look into his work?! 1y

Sace @BarbaraBB he's a she 😊 if you like romance then you might like her. These books are her earlier titles and it's been a while since I read the Velvet series. I don't know if they hold up over time. I've read Knight recently and it held up just fine. Testing a tag @Cinfhen 1y
Sace Hmmm @Lovesbooks88 testing you too... 1y
Sace What is the tagging trouble? The list doesn't come up but I just type the name. If course I have no Idea if y'all all getting notified lol 1y
KathyWheeler I read A Knight in Shining Armor years ago and loved it. It‘s the only book of hers that I‘ve ever read though. 1y
Sace @KathyWheeler I think it's the first romance book I had my daughter read when she showed an interest. Though Remembrance is her favorite. 1y
KathyWheeler @RestlessFickleBookHoarder That one sounds interesting too. 1y
BarbaraBB Haha, he‘s a she! ☺️ 1y
LoverofLit The Velvet Series by her is one of my favorites! I have a special place in my heart for Alex ❤ Also, the standalone The Princess by her is one of my favorites of hers. So good! 1y
Sace @LoverofLit I feel like I've read that one 🤔 1y

#HeyJude I think this novel might be Jude Devereaux‘s most famous book. While I know many people love it, I bailed 🤷🏻‍♀️

#HeyJune

GypsyKat I‘m not sure I‘ve ever even read her books. And everyone has different tastes. 🙃 2y
Melissa_J @GypsyKat I knew going into it that I probably wouldn‘t like it. So I‘m not surprised I bailed. But I was willing to give it a try so I figure that counts for something ☺️ 2y
GypsyKat @Melissa_J Definitely! 👍 2y
Cinfhen That cover!!!! Clever choice 😄 2y

I'm sorry, everyone I talk to says they really liked this book but I honestly just can't get past the weakness and stupidity of the main female character. She just really turned me off from the entire book. Just couldn't do it.

RainyDayReading That‘s how I felt with the Mortal Instruments. Just could not get past the main character despite everyone around me loving the series. 2y

Unlike the lovely ladies on Heaving Bosoms, I really love this book, but listening to them discuss it is still loads of fun. If you love romance novels and banter, and haven't checked out the Heaving Bosoms Podcast, you are missing out!

Read this today between naps. My first “real” job was as a classroom aide, (this was in the mid-90s) and the teacher in that classroom always lent me books. This was one of my favorites from her, and a week or so ago I thought of it for the first time in years. It‘s was as lovely as I‘d remembered.

24/100 for the year, K for #litsyatoz, time travel for #pop2018, classic of genre fiction for #readharder

AileenRR My 1st time travel romance ❤️ 2y

Oh man. So enjoyable. Great on audio! I laughed. I cried. I read this for my book club. The person who picked this wanted to read romance, which I was very excited about. I enjoyed the first half of the book more, which takes place in the "present" (1988 in this book). There's quite a lot of sweeping romantic language (like the above) that I loved because it really worked for the story. It wasn't trite or forced. #Romance
