Favorite Character Friday: Gabriel Hume!

Favorite Character Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Adria's Musings & Reviews that gives readers a chance to celebrate their favorite characters, because with millions of books out there and more coming out every week, characters are like potato chips, you can't have just one.

How it works: Every week you pick one of your favorite characters and tell everyone WHY they're one of your favorite characters. Be sure to include the blurb and book cover as well! Share the love and maybe someone will read that same book and see why that character is one of your favorites! Unlike the Book Boyfriend meme (which was a great meme), your Favorite Character Fridays choice can be male or female!

Review: Bad for Her by Christi Barth

I love me a bad boy gone good romance, especially one with so much humor and heat!

Format: .mobi (A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via Edelweiss for the purpose of an honest review. )
Publisher: Avon Impulse
Release Date: October 3, 2017

USA Today bestselling author Christi Barth launches a sexy new series about three bad-boy brothers in Witness Protection who are about to learn that going good is harder than they thought...

Doctor Mollie Vickers loves the tight-knit community of her tiny Oregon town. But she’s not a fan of the limited dating options. Sleep with a guy who tried to copy off her in junior high? Pass. Mollie’s sex life is flatlining… until a deliciously handsome man she’s never seen before stops to help her fix a flat tire.

As an ex-mobster, Rafe Maguire’s no saint. But he’s trying to turn over a new leaf. Although he probably shouldn’t kiss the hot doctor on the side of the highway. Or suggest a no-strings fling with a woman he has no business pursuing. Rafe’s life is too complicated for love—his new WITSEC-provided identity doesn’t fit him at all and there’s a U.S. Marshal watching his every move. He can’t tell Mollie the truth… but their chemistry is scorching and being good doesn’t mean he can’t be a little bad.

Mollie can’t resist the guy who looks rough, talks tough, and is loyal to the bone. But it’s obvious Rafe is keeping secrets. When the truth comes out, Mollie must decide if she could ever love an ex-mobster… or if this bad boy has truly gone good.

Blog Tour: Duke of Desire by Elizabeth Hoyt (Q&A + Review + Giveaway)

Gah, the last full length book in the Maiden Lane series is here guys. I am both excited and saddened by this. Elizabeth Hoyt’s long running series has been on my favorite series list for years and now I don’t know what I’ll do without new books! I can't think of a better way to end the series though, and as a BIG bonus treat, I got to ask Elizabeth a few questions. I can now check that off my wishlist with a big ole heart. Lol.

About Elizabeth Hoyt:

Elizabeth Hoyt is the New York Times bestselling author of over seventeen lush historical romances including the Maiden Lane series. Publishers Weekly has called her writing "mesmerizing."

She also pens deliciously fun contemporary romances under the name Julia Harper. Elizabeth lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with three untrained dogs, a garden in constant need of weeding, and the long-suffering Mr. Hoyt.

1. How does it feel to have the end of such an amazing series finally come?
A little sad, a little happy that the series turned out so well, and a little impatient to start my new series.

2. What will you be working on now?
Right now I’m plotting a new historical series. Readers can get a glimpse of the process by checking out Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/elizabethhoyt/

3. Since the series is now at an end, I feel like this is a good time to ask, which character or couple has been your favorite or most challenging?
Favorite character would be Valentine Napier, the Duke of Montgomery—I loved writing him! Most challenging character is probably the hero of Duke of Desire—Raphael de Chartres, the Duke of Dyemore. It took a long time for me to find out who he was inside.

4. If you had to write a book about the children of only one couple from the series, who would you pick and why?
Oh, that’s a hard one! Maybe Temperance and Caire’s children? I just finished a novella—Once Upon a Maiden Lane—in which they have cameos. Annalise in particular seems like she’d be a fun heroine.

5. Anything you'd like longtime fans of the series to know?
Yes! Due to bad time management on my part there’ll be two Maiden Lane novellas published after Duke of Desire. Once Upon a Maiden Lane (featuring Mary Whitsun) is out in November and Once Upon a Christmas Eve (with Sarah St. John and Lord d’Arque) will be a December book.

I’d also like to thank everyone who emailed me, chatted with me on Facebook or Twitter or Goodreads, and told me in person how much they enjoyed the Maiden Lane series! Writing is a lonely job and sometimes all it takes is a lovely email to help the author write that next page. Thank you all!

Guys be sure to show Elizabeth some love and pick up your copy of Duke of Desire today! If you're new to the series then now is a great time to pick up Wicked Intentions, the first book in the Maiden Lane series!

Review: The Duke by Katharine Ashe

Be still my romance loving heart, this book had such a strong love story that I just could not put it down! I may have had one or two small issues with it but overall it was so well done!

Format: .mobi (A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via Edelweiss for the purpose of an honest review. )

Release Date: September 26, 2017

Six years ago, when Lady Amarantha Vale was an innocent in a foreign land and Gabriel Hume was a young naval officer, they met . . . and played with fire.
Now Gabriel is the dark lord known to society as the Devil’s Duke, a notorious recluse hidden away in a castle in the Highlands. Only Amarantha knows the truth about him, and she won’t be intimidated. He is the one man who can give her the answers she needs.
But Gabriel cannot let her learn his darkest secret. So begins a game of wit and desire that proves seduction is more satisfying—and much more wicked—the second time around…

What An Adventure (NOT)

I love looking at the lit trees!
Guys, I had one heck of a night last night!

All day yesterday mom, Hayley, and I were just bumming around which is a luxury. I was sketching out journal ideas, mom was knitting, and Hayley was being Hayley (She stole my shoe off my foot, got into the recycling bin, stole my mom’s knitting from the table, and scared the daylights out of one of the cats when she barked at him just for shits and giggles). Towards the evening Hayley and I started getting restless, we’re alike in that we don’t like to stay cooped up in the house all day so at around 8:30 my mom says “Let’s go for a ride down to the Fountains at Farrah” which is basically like a big shopping center with Best Buy, PetsMart, Barnes and Noble, and other stores on the upper level, and restaurants on the lower level. Anyway, we’re in the car and driving around the lower level where all the action is when suddenly one of the many lights in the car turns on and there’s a warning sound coming from the dashboard.
