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

Didn't work for me

Dukes Are Forever (The Secret Life of Scoundrels) - Anna Harrington

Started off very cliched and then insta-lust hit our hero. The technical writing was good so I hung in but the story meanders a lot and I lost interest because I have to use the word cliched again. The story takes parts from the "typical" regency historical (duke, ward, a blown out of proportion betrayal, misunderstandings) so you have a bit of been there done that, without a lot of charm or spark. The components also felt a little lost in the way they were arranged. There was a lot of sex happening and pretty soon (too soon for me as I didn't feel the character's connection and pre-martial sex could be a dangerous undertaking for regency women). This one just didn't work for me.
