July RR@H reviews (part 1)

Are you all in awe of this fast-moving year?! I’m just freaking out! It’s already July, and this whole year is just flying by too quickly for me. I’m all ready for my son’s wedding! I got a dress, shoes and a purse. It appears that I’ll be lighting a candle with mother of the bride (my new in-laws, how weird is that?) and I’m excited about that!

I’ve gotten some reviews in for RRAH and in all those books read I only thought three were worth a read. I’ll start with one left-over June review of DARK MOON OF AVALON by Anna Elliott and I have to tell you, this is one awesome read, if you’re into this time period. Trystan and Isolde is such an old tale and well-known, but once you read this book, you’ll get a whole new picture in your head. I loved James Franco in this role and I pictured him reading this book. Here’s just a peek at a scene from “Trystan and Isolde”

 

After such a great book, I went to THE BLUE VIKING by Sandra Hill and all I have to say is skip this, unless you’re Ms. Hill’s fan, I think you’ll really be disappointed by this book. This was more of a comedy then the romance. Again, if you’re into slapstick, you might enjoy it. I didn’t and don’t recommend it.

LADY OF SEDUCTION by Laurel McKee is the last story of Daughters of Erin series and I highly recommend all three stories. I can’t stop talking about them. This was such a great series and so well told. I’ve read this author under her other pseudonym of Amanda McCabe and loved her so check her out!

GUARDING A NOTORIOUS LADY by Olivia Parker was everything I expexted this story to be. It had all the elements of a great romance, humor and wit. This new author will go a long way if she continues writing fast paced, well-developed stories. If you haven’t read the other books in this series, please try to get them. They’re all as good as this one and you’ll fall in love with these siblings!

LORD LANGLEY IS BACK IN TOWN by Elizabeth Boyle was such a disappointment that I almost cried! To wait so long for this story and then to be let down by it, just plain hurt! What the Hell happened to my Hero?! This was…I can’t even talk about it! I loved the other books in the series, and reading this book I just kept shaking my head! DO NOT BOTHER with this one!

And that’s it for now. I hope I’m helping all of you decide on your reads for the summer and if I am won’t you let me know? What are you reading these days?
