Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

Currently reading

Plenty of Adventure and Romance in This Victorian Novel

The Perks of Loving a Scoundrel - Jennifer McQuiston

“I did offer you marriage.”
“And I refused, with good reason. Marrying you would be a nightmare.”
There was a moment’s pause. “Take it from someone who suffers nightmares, Miss Channing. You misuse the word. Either that or you sorely misunderstand the pleasures to be found in my bed.”

The Perks of Loving a Scoundrel was such a fun time! This Victorian historical had an unexpected romance, plenty of adventure as our protagonists investigated an assassination plot, nice bits of humor tucked in here and there, and friendships being tested in dramatic ways.

 

Jennifer McQuiston always writes a solid story with unique characters and events. And this third installment in the Seduction Diaries had two protagonists who were never taken seriously trying to unravel the mystery of who was aspiring to assassinate someone of importance. Mary and West were thrown together in their efforts to thwart the would-be assassins, considering everyone else just brushed them aside when they went looking for assistance.
