Review: Soothsayer by Kathryn Amurra (2020)

Heat Factor: This is a very mild heat, closed-door romance

Character Chemistry: They have undeniable chemistry and it’s pretty clear to anyone in the room

Plot: Aurelia has delayed marriage for years because she wants to marry for love. When her father dies and she learns her disabled brother may be forced into the military to serve, Aurelia has to choose a marriage of convenience in order to protect her brother. HOWEVER–the dreamboat soldier tasked with delivering her to her elderly groom throws a huge kink in all her plans.

Overall: This book was surprisingly gripping–the path to happiness is not easy and they are both somewhat powerless. I was very entertained with this sweet read.

Anthology Review: Duke I’d Like to F… (2019)

Heat Factor: Each novella has at least two sex scenes, but I don’t think the stories quite cross the line into erotic romance. Bonus points for lots of explicit consent. 

Character Chemistry: Sizzling. In every story. 

Plot: Woman propositions Duke. Duke agrees to sexytimes. “But we can’t have anything more.” Everyone wants more. 

Overall: Sexy and fun
