A Convenient Wedding by Lucy Gordon

A Convenient Wedding by Lucy Gordon

I do a lot of used romance buying in thrift stores. I actually have a couple of amazing used bookstores in my area, but it’s always wonderfully serendipitous to arrive at a Goodwill the same day someone has off-loaded their complete collection of 1970s Harlequins. Or, in this case, a random Harlequin Romance from 2002

2016 TBR Challenge: Grabbed by Vicious by Lolita Lopez

This month’s TBR Challenge theme was a “Random Pick” and this one was pretty random. I picked up all three books in the Grabbed series by Lolita Lopez at the recommendation of a friend.

2016 TBR Challenge: The Forbidden Rose by Joanna Bourne

This month’s TBR Challenge these was Series Catch-Up and I am way behind on the Spymaster series by Joanna Bourne. Well, technically, I’m not behind so much as rationing them. I’ve read My Lord and Spymaster and The Spymaster’s Lady so this is my third by her. After this I have two more to go

Louisa is

Roses Have Thorns Lasagna 2015 TBR Challenge

It’s TBR Challenge time again! This month’s theme was “Kickin’ it Old School”, which is most definitely not a problem for me as the vast majority of my TBR pile is acquired via used bookstores and thrift stores and it would be a rare book that isn’t more than ten years old. So I literally

Tempest Smoked Mac & Cheese 2015 TBR Challenge

  This month’s TBR Challenge theme was “series catch-up” and while I’m stretching the spirit a little bit by both starting and finishing during the challenge month, the Playing the Fool series by Lisa Henry and J.A. Rock has been on my TBR pile since late last year. So I feel like it still qualifies
