RETRO REVIEW: Seduce Me at Sunrise (The Hathaways #2) by Lisa Kleypas

Review by Hollis Jade Being relatively new to the historical romance genre, and thus totally overwhelmed by the selection and substantial backlists of all the Must Read Authors, it’s taken a few years for me to get caught up on some of the books that are absolute staples and longtime favourites of so many readers. Which is why you see...

RETRO REVIEW: The Soldier’s Scoundrel (Turner Series #1) by Cat Sebastian

Review by Hollis Jade A romance between two people, or in this case two men, from different classes is one of my favourite tropes in the Historical Romance genre.
