REVIEW FOR “SUPRISING LORD JACK” BY SALLY MacKENZIE

suprising lord jackDowry? She’ll have to go to London herself and knock some sense into the men interfering in her life. With the nonsense she’s dealt with lately, though, there’s no way she’s going as a woman. A pair of breeches and a quick chop of her red curls, and she’ll have much less to worry about. Jack Valentine, third son of the famous “Duchess of Love”, is through being pursued by pushy young ladies. One particularly determined Miss has run him out of his own house party. Luckily the inn has one bed left – Jack just has to share with a rather entertaining red-headed youth. Perhaps the two of them should ride to London together. It will make a pleasant escape from his mother’s matchmaking melodrama!

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

This was a good read with bits of humor thrown in throughout the book. The story line and character development were very well done. I loved the characters of Frances Hadley  and Jack Valentine. Lord Jack is not quite the rake that everyone believes him to be, and by suggesting that they marry to protect her reputation before anyone finds out that they were alone together on the way to London would be disastrous. They slowly get to know each other, and when they get to London Frances gets closer with her twin brother. I love Sally MacKenzie‘s writing and will recommend all of her books. I give this book 4/ 5 stars.

REVIEW FOR “RIGHT HAND MAGIC” BY NANCY A. COLLINS

Product DetailsLike most Manhattanites, aspiring artist Tate can’t resist a good rental deal-even if it’s in the city’s strangest neighborhood, Golgotham, where for centuries werewolves, centaurs, and countless other creatures have roamed the streets.

Her new landlord is a sorcerer name Hexe, who is determined to build his reputation without using dark, left-hand magic. As Tate is drawn into Hexe’s fascinating world, they both find that the right hand does not always know what the left hand is doing-and avoiding darkness is no easy trick…

Description courtesy of Amazon.

Tate is the first human on the block, and gains insight about the residents while still holding on to her preconceived prejudices. She will have to learn to live peacefully with the residents and learn their rules and customs or she will have to leave. This was a really good read. The author brought a fresh and alternate society to life. It made you want more, when the story ended. I am currently waiting for the third book in the series.

I give this book a 5/ 5 stars. Here are the other books.
