Kyraryker’s quotes

"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

When a Scot Ties the Knot - Tessa Dare

I've already gotten on my soapbox about modern characters in historicals this week, so I'm just going to say, if you want to write a contemporary, feel free to do so. Anyway, I ended up liking this one more than I was anticipating, I've not had luck with this series previously. What sold it for me was the relationship between our two leads and hey, isn't that what we read these books for? They were ooey gooey sweet and my little girl princess happily ever after side quite enjoyed it. My cranky butt adult side noticed how it didn't really feel like a historical, the winks and nods to cliche scenes in romance books had more of a nervy tone than cheeky, and how the whole thing felt like the author was going through the motions. It almost seemed like Dare created a good romance despite herself. I would recommend this for individuals looking for a cute and light romance because like I said, this couple was cute.
