Hi everyone! This is Julia of The Broke and the Bookish, formerly blogging on my own at The Competitive Bibliomaniac.
I read mostly historical romance, but can often be found reviewing paranormal romance, young adult books (mostly distopian/fantasy), fantasy/sci-fi, classics, and the occasional non-fiction book about languages.
Feel free to follow and reblog!
I swear I could make a generator for historical romance titles. There are only like four verbs and various titles. Or the puns, dont forget the puns.
Anyway, this book. I liked it. I read it on a cross country plane ride and it kept me sufficiently entertained the whole time. I loved the characters, I loved the story, I loved the tension. I didn't rate it higher because it was sort of predictable? But still entertaining.
Ransom is a duke living in his castle after an injury, but unknown to him, the castle may or may not have been sold and then left in a will to Izzy, who is quite destitute and desperate for a home. Her tenacity and his stubbornness clash together with brilliant sparks of the best kind.
I love Tessa Dare's writing. It's a good mix of humor and sensuality. I really want to pick up the next one in the series now. :)
