Hi, readers! As you likely already know by now, I've had a new release in the past week or so. Here are some cool new Book reviews for it...
Reviewed in the United States on November 27, 2020
Ms. Lavender is a new to me author so I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked this up. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. This is the first installment of Heiresses in Love series. I think it is off to a splendid start! This book is not only written in my favorite genre, but it is filled with drama, action, and adventure which makes this a very entertaining and intriguing read. I really appreciated the way the author explained the social norms of the day and weaved them smoothly into the story. The characters had such great charisma and personalities that I was instantly drawn to their story and was completely immersed till the end. A smooth storyline with plentry of plot twists that kept me turning the pages anxious to find out what happens next. A beautifully written, well-crafted story, and I enjoyed every page. I will definitely be looking for more from this author.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
A Want She Didn’t Understand…
ADULT Victorian Era Romance and Adventure
Tara, a young, eight year old French girl, has only her mother’s ball gown, a painting, and a few momentos to remind her of her parents, both killed by Turkish Pirates while they were on a sea voyage. For them, it was love at first sight when they met.Now Tara is to go live with her father’s brother, Michel de Bellamont, her uncle, a somber and distant unmarried businessman.
Long years at a convent being educated made Tara realize she has no life of her own. When she got out, she had a season, then her uncle chose a husband for her, a Mr Jean Le Croix, a wealthy young man she doesn’t know. It’s a living nightmare! He’s a nightmare! He’s her betrothed!
Mr Le Croix asks her to meet him at the docks, but instead, she is attacked and injured by two hired thugs upon her arrival there. Luckily, she is saved by a handsome and skilled swordsman. He is Grant Hill, the Captain of the ship Voyager.
ARC Provided by Booksprout
This ebook was $2.99 on Amazon at the time of this review.
Opinions Expressed here are entirely my own.
There are a number of continuity errors in the ARC copy I am reviewing from. There are also a lot of Historical errors. A riding horse is not a destrier! A healthy nineteen year old woman of wealth isn’t attended by a nursemaid! She would have a lady’s maid.
However, I did enjoy the story line of the book, but I disliked the character of Tara. She grows up in a convent, but apparently learned nothing there about being humble or kind. In the short time she is around her horrible arrogant uncle, she becomes much like him! Grant saves her bacon time and time again and she appreciates nothing.
The book is a goofy mix of French and English characters and customs. It supposedly takes place in France but the customs seem more English than French.

Also, a few for Chasing Ginger are included below.
Reviewed in the United States on November 12, 2020 (on Goodreads too)
Chasing Ginger is a unique plot that begins with a mysterious pill that promises the most unbelievable things to any woman that feels neglected by Cupido.
When Ginger Halloway applied to the experiment, she had no idea how her life would change. Due to her, not so popular size, she had almost given up on the right man. But an impromptu meeting led to a ride in the limo which led to… no spoiler alert here.
If you are looking for a quick chick-lit read, then this is your book. The characters are flawed in a beautiful emphatic way which made it believable while the fun never stops when the Misfits steps in.
And the hunk? Well… heavy sigh – dreamy look.
Do I need to say more… use your imagination and get on the ride of InstaSin.
I give this book 4 stars
