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

A Pirate for Christmas - Anna Campbell

 

Task the Fourth:  The Gift Card:

- Read a book that you either received as a gift or have given as a gift.

 

 

This woman was meant for him. He wasn't sure yet what he felt about it, but the conclusion was inescapable.

 

It's love at first sight for our hero and while I understand using this trope in a novella, it's not my favorite. The hero and heroine have about a five minute conversation when the hero decides/knows he will be marrying the heroine. I didn't feel the excitement of a budding relationship and because of a lack of felt emotion between the two, the heat was missing from their one or two kissing/making out scenes. 

The small village feel was there with the activity of putting on a play and with a snow storm and mistletoe causing some havoc, it had a nice holiday feel.
