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.

Just Finished Reactions: What a Gentleman Wants by Caroline Linden

What a Gentleman Wants - Caroline Linden

A good romance. Written well. enjoyable characters. LOVED the fact that the heroine speaks her mind and instead of the big problem being the misunderstanding there was an awesome plot. I also loved the fact that there was a point where the story could have gone the "No, I can't tell him what I think. He obviously doesn't love me so I will suffer in silence route" like so many romance novels do, but instead the heroine pretty much says "What's the worst that could happen?" It was very refreshing!
