Review: A Widow’s Guide to Scandal by Hallie Alexander (2020)

Sons of Neptune, Book 1

Heat Factor: Sometimes you gotta bang on the kitchen floor

Character Chemistry: They are really mean to each other, but they seem to like it

Plot: Marcus breaks his ankle fixing Henrietta’s roof, and is stuck in her house while he heals. Plus there’s some light espionage action. 

Overall: I had some problems with the writing style

Overall: There are a lot of dyads here, and while one couple does get a HEA, others do not. I would place this firmly in the category of erotica, rather than romance.

Saturday Smutty Six: Writer Heroines
