Dragon Is this a stand-alone or should I read the first book in the series? Sounds like exactly my kind of historical romantsy. 7mo
CherylSwafford @Dragon it is the second in a series, but can stand alone. Both books are awesome. 6mo

BlameJennyJane Love DOTS! Sent my boyfriend to the gas station for some last weekend. He and another guy, who was on the same mission for his girlfriend at the exact same time, had the attendants running around looking for them with no luck. Both guys ended up at the same grocery store 15 mins later and found them. 🤣🤣🤣 10mo

LOVED this book and I highly recommend if you enjoy Victorian Era romance. The heroine is a botanist, and this new author (this being her first published novel!) has definitely done her research. ❤️

Wonderful contemporary romance novel with one guilt-ridden hero and a spunky heroine. Note: the hero‘s son is an autistic middle-schooler and the author does a great job with this secondary character. Loved all of the characters. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

✴️ See above and so far, it is very good!👍

✴️ I have always been quiet and imaginative. I cannot remember not loving to read. My parents never hesitated to buy me books. If money was tight, we would go to yard sales, and my dad would buy me an entire box of books for $5🤓

✴️ Gym time, bath time, bed time

✴️ There are sooo many. Lately, I‘ve loved the characters from American Queen, by Sierra Simone.

Cleopatra Killoran grew up on the streets and in a desreputable club under the rule of Diggory, a vile and vicious man. Now Diggory is dead, and the club is in the hands of Cleopatra‘s brother who wants to see her wed a lord and, thus, bring respectability to the Killoran name.

The 1st in a new series by Christi Caldwell, this is a wonderful novel w/ deep characters and an intriguing plot. In other words, it‘s typical Christi Caldwell. (💞👍)
