Amazon Link Here: http://amzn.to/2Isgah7

Gareth Cavendish, Duke of Wessex thinks he’s chosen the perfect girl to be his Duchess until he meets her spunky widowed sister and finds himself enthralled. Cleo loves her sister Helen to death and longs for her to escape the clutches of her overbearing parents. The Duke of Wessex is the best person to make that happen. Can she subjugate her own desires and put the needs of Helen first or will she betray her and risk even more separation from her family who already dismiss her for eloped to marry a merchant rather than a peer.
Oh the Angst! Loved it. I feel like it might be a Novella where the other characters we met have their own books? Not sure, but that takes nothing away from the book itself.

“Dating The SuperHero” – S Doyle

Releases March 9th, preorder here http://amzn.to/2oM5CRE
Available under Kindle Unlimited

I love that you never know what you’re getting from S Doyle, but it’s gonna be good.
Jane is “different”, she’s kinda a super hero, not exactly with Super Powers, but with an unusual anatomy she’s able to do things others can’t. However that doesn’t mean her life is easy. She’s just starting college, uncertain of herself and what she wants from her future. Even with the support of her ACLU Lawyer Mom and life long best friend, she’s struggling to find her place in the world. Then along comes Logan, rich son of a recently convicted white collar criminal, he views himself as the Villain in our TeleNovella, because everyone has a role to fill, right?
I really enjoyed this exploration of the expectations being different or unusual places on someone, should they explore all the options or given in to the thing they seem destined to do. Framed in the world of a freshman, where every young adult is figuring out how to be self sufficient and a self starter as well as navigating new friendships and roles they get to plan. Can’t wait to find out what happens next in the finale of this duet!

“Spice and Smoke” – Suleikha Snyder

Amazon Link Here: http://amzn.to/2GDKofa

I tried explaining this novel to a friend and almost had to draw a venn diagram. There’s a lot going on in this novella. It’s pretty effective in explaining the various character’s histories with each other that allows each pairing to make sense in the current day.

I do doubt that none of the more illicit assignations would have been kept secret by the film crew though given the character’s popularity in the film industry, that seemed a stretch too far.
