Review: Devil in Disguise by Lisa Kleypas (2021)

The Ravenels, Book #7 

(a.k.a. The Wallflowers, The Next Generation, Book #3) 

(a.k.a. The Devil in Winter Epilogues, also Book #3)

Erin’s reviewed the whole Ravenels series: Book #1 | Book #2 | Book #3 | Book #4 | Book #5 | Book #6

Heat Factor: These are some horny Victorians

Character Chemistry: It’s totally insta-love, and it was written lucidly enough that it worked for me

Plot: “We’ll never work because of an unequal match” + “Why is someone trying to murder me?”

Overall: I re-upped my membership in the Bad Decisions Book Club for this one and read it in one sitting. No regrets.

Review: Dragon Dad’s Nanny by Amelia Wilson (2020)

Dragon Dads Love Chronicles, Book #4

Heat Factor: I feel like it’s supposed to be hot but…it’s not

Character Chemistry: is secondary to everything else going on 

Plot: Sam, a shifter, feels like he’s a bad dad, so he’s initiated a custody review so his shifter hunter ex-wife can have custody of his dragon twin daughters. (Yep. That’s right.)  Meanwhile, nanny AnnaLee can’t have children. 

Overall: This book makes me want to smash the patriarchy (not in a good way)

Overall:

Review: Snowspelled by Stephanie Burgis (2017)

The Harwood Spellbook, Book 1

Heat Factor: She thoroughly compromises him, but there’s nothing explicit

Character Chemistry: They complement each other – if only they weren’t so pig-headed about communicating!

Plot: Disgraced magic-user has to save the world from terrible snowstorm and evil fairy

Overall: Excellent worldbuilding, fun fantasy, middling romance
