Oh I really enjoyed this. It‘s a heist caper romance with more twists and kinks in the plot than I was expecting. Wonderful fun.

4/5

This was a nice historical romance. I loved how chapters from the characters' penny dreadfuls were interspersed and contributed to the plot. It was a fun read that I couldn't put down.

Taking a break from getting my daily word count for #NaNoWriMo to sit in the backyard with the doggo and enjoy a good read in the lovely weather.

Hope all the wrimos out there are doing well!

The Maiden | Jude Deveraux

Jude Deveraux writes some of my favorite historical #romantsy settings with her castles and knights etc. I really loved: the characters, the setting, and the social structure of fictional Lanconia. I didn‘t love: the way these characters assumed so much and didn‘t communicate well, and the strange turn the plot took near the end with a neighboring kingdom. Overall, I enjoyed reading this one but definitely not as much as A Knight in Shining Armor.

Averagely entertaining but I do find her prose to be long winded.

4.5 Stars - I really enjoyed this book. I found the characters engaging and witty. The situation the author used was a wonderful start to the story. Watching Benedict and Georgiana fall in love was amusing and delightful. I have not read this author before but I found her writing style smooth and very easy to slip into the world being created. I look forward to Alex and Seb's stories as well as Bateman's backlist.

I want to read the series, but wonder if it is worth since I have seen the show? Any opinions would be helpful! #outlander

Kimberlone I would definitely still recommend the first book...it‘s really good especially if the Jamie/Claire romance is your favorite part of the show (edited) 2d
Liatrek I would defiantly recommend reading the books. I love the series but there is just something about book Jaimie and Claire ❤️❤️ 2d
sprainedbrain I adore the books... the show does a really good job of bringing them to life but the books are so rich and detailed. If you enjoy immersing yourself in great big, sprawling books, I definitely recommend. 2d
Mariposa_Bookworm If you are worried about the size of the books, listen to them on audio. The narrator, Davina Porter, is PHENOMENAL!!!! I‘m re-reading them on audio on my commute. Amazing! 2d
Birdsong28 Yes! I watched the TV series and then got the audiobooks as I knew that it would take a while for me to physically read them. As I watched before I read them it helped me to picture certain scenes. Also the audiobooks helped me get through the longer more descriptive passages and things that I thought dragged the story and @Mariposa_Bookworm is correct as Davina Porter makes these books, I hope she is back for the last two! 📚 📖 2d

#LiteraryCrew read this one earlier this year...the many short stories in this introduce a #BeautifulStranger or two to the main characters. Each story is set in the WWI era, before, during or after the war. I chose to highlight this one today in memory of the war and for Armistice/Veterans Day. #Movember

Cinfhen Nice to tie this in with Veterans Day 3d
