Review: 30 Days by Christine d'Abo

For years, Alyssa has been going to bed with a memory. Is she ready to wake up with a fantasy?


Some people wait their whole lives to find their soul mate, but not Alyssa Barrow. She met Rob at nineteen, and they were set to live happily ever after—until he became ill. In his final days, Rob urged his beautiful, young wife not to abandon happiness—or pleasure. He even left her a special gift, a sexy game plan to help her move on: Thirty cards with instructions for thirty days of passion. You’ll know when the time is right, he’d said. Now it’s two years later, and when Alyssa meets her hot new neighbor, Harrison Kemp, she begins to think the right time is right now…

DaughterofanEarlDo you like historical romance? If so check out New England romance author Victoria Morgan’s The Daughter of an Earl which released earlier this month. This romance features Brett Curtis, an American businessman, and Lady Emily Chandler, the daughter of an earl. Both characters were introduced in Morgan’s first book, The Heart of a Duke. Personally, I couldn’t wait for Brett to get a happily ever after once I finished reading The Heart of a Duke - and was so excited when I learned he was getting one.


Brett may be an American, but he is in business with a duke (the hero of The Heat of a Duke) and has been in England for several years conducting his business and trying to keep his sisters busy and out of trouble. He also has family ties in England. In fact, his cousin has recently inherited a dukedom and has gone missing (this is important to the plot of the book).
