MONTHLY RECAP: January 2016

FAVORITE READ OF THE MONTH...
Listen to the Moon (Lively St. Lemeston, #3)
Listen to the Moon by Rose Lerner
When upstairs valet meets downstairs maid, the line between work and play blurs.
John Toogood dreamed of being valet to a great man...before he was laid off and blacklisted. Now he's stuck in small-town Lively St. Lemeston until London's Season opens and he can begin his embarrassing job hunt. His instant attraction to happy-go-lucky maid Sukey Grimes couldn't come at a worse time. Her manners are provincial, her respect for authority nonexistent, and her outdated cleaning methods-well, the less said about them, the better.
Behind John's austere facade, Sukey catches tantalizing glimpses of a lonely man with a gift for laughter. Yet her heart warns her not to fall for a man with one foot out the door, no matter how devastating his kiss. Then he lands a butler job in town-but there's a catch. His employer, the vicar, insists Toogood be respectably married. Against both their better judgments, he and Sukey come to an arrangement. But the knot is barely tied when Sukey realizes she underestimated just how vexing it can be to be married to the boss... 
Warning: Contains a butler with a protective streak a mile wide, and a maid who enjoys messing up the bed a whole lot more than making it.

  2. Love the progress you have made in one month of 2016!!! I am so thrilled to see Gentle Rogue on your TBR shelf. Love that book, I believe it was my first Johanna Lindsey read and really liked it. Just to warn you, James is awesome but a bit outrageous and so rakish. I think you will like him a ton. Let me know what you think of it when you pick it up. I am also looking forward to The Hunter and Princess Wore Plaid. I love Karen Hawkins and I just can't get enough of this latest series of hers. I really loved Radiance too!! Such a fantastic romance. I also liked My American Duchess quite a bit. I think I loved it because Eloisa James is so engaging in her books and even though there were a couple of things I didn't really like, she totally made it work for me. Hope Feb is a awesome month for you and you get a chance to read some great books!!
