What are you currently reading?
I am going to hold off on another audiobook for a little bit, so I’m moving on to my next NetGalley book: I Dared the Duke. I guess I really need to read romance right now because I am flying through them!
Alexander Savage, the Duke of Blackshire, is known throughout the ton for three things: the burn scars on his neck, his ornery disposition, and the trail of broken hearts behind him. None of which would concern Miss Elizabeth Lacey in the least—if she weren’t living under his roof. As his grandmother’s companion, Beth is all too concerned with the moody and compelling duke. Incensed by his plans to banish the sweet dowager duchess to the country, Beth refuses to do his bidding. If Alex wants her help, he’s going to have to take her dare…and grant her three wishes.
Alex adores his grandmother, which is precisely why she must leave. A string of unfortunate incidents has him worried for the safety of everyone around him—including the dowager’s loyal and lovely companion, Beth. But the notorious wallflower isn’t as meek as she appears, and as their battle of wills heats up, so does Alex’s desire. He’s dangerously close to falling in love with her…and revealing secrets he’d rather keep hidden. How can he convince her that his darkest days are behind him—and that, for the first time in forever, his heart is true?
What did you just finish reading?
EEEEE! I finished FOUR books in one week! That is what I normally finish in a month’s time. It was a great reading week for me, especially since I’ve been saying I want to get all the books you’ve been seeing in the section below read by the end of the month.
Last Night with the Duke centered on scandal all around. There were twins prone to fits vying for the same man’s attention, a rumor of disgrace and ruin of said twins, and old and not-so disapproving relative, and a man who steals from a child to only mention some of the book’s events.
Close to Home hit way too close to home. I understand Tessa’s need for a divorce in a loveless marriage, the need for your partner to want you in all the ways they should. While I’ve heard so many people in my life make commentary on sex or sex in books, it is an integral and necessary part of a relationship. And if that’s missing…it changes things.
Home at Last was also a very good read with a crazy relationship “guru” trying to break up sweet and scatterbrained Quinn’s parents. There was some legit crazy, including a fake engagement and a mini Stonehenge. I loved Marcus’s story with his dad and their relationship.
Lastly I finished listening to The Strange Case of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde. I don’t recommend it.
What do you think you’ll read next?
How does my list look now? Do you think I’ll finish all of these by the end of April? Or at least start all of them?
How about you? What are you reading this week?
