I have felt rather disconnected from historical romance of late. I do not read nearly as many historical romances as I once did, and I often don’t even notice - well until I read some great ones that remind me of what I am missing out on. Recently, I had this experience with two books: Tessa Dare’s Say Yes to the Marquess and Miranda Neville’s The Duke of Dark Desires. Both were wonderful stories with heart despite being very different.

 

Say Yes to the Marquess by Tessa Dare is the lighter of the two romances. Clio Whitmore has been engaged to local lord, Piers Brandon, the Marquess of Granville, for eight long years. Piers has been absent for quite some time, working as a diplomat abroad. Clio is tired of waiting, and Piers really isn’t the husband she wants anyway. Determined to take control over her own life, Clio marches into a seedy area of London to find the only man who can free her from her engagement, Lord Rafe Brandon, her brother in law to be.

Two New Adult Reviews: The Hook Up and Scratch

hookupRNNREad2-3

I’ve had a tough time with the New Adult romance genre. There are several reasons, but one of the major ones seems to be the glaring disparity in what books get that label. Also, I’ve been burned by many NA books that were just horrible reads for me. But lately, I’ve read some fantastic ones that are making me reevaluate my opinion. Both Kristen Callihan’s The Hook Up and Scratch by Rhonda Helms hit the sweet spot for me with college-set stories that combine sweet and sexy romances with deep emotional angst. The stories are not the same, but have the same type of feel. I highly recommend both.

 

The Hook Up has Drew, the star college quarterback and Anna, the standoffish woman who is determined to keep her emotions bottled up. Drew is the pursuer, a man who sees Anna and falls for her immediately. Anna is gun shy and suspicious of Drew’s motives. How could the school’s star quarterback like her? Additionally, she has learned that relationships don’t last from her mother who has never had any luck with men.
