I’m going to be honest – reviewing this book is hard because I loved it so much, but I also don’t want to give away any of the big plot things. Talking anything plot-wise with this series is incredibly difficult as there are so many fun twists and turns, and experiencing them for the first time while reading is magical.
When a Scot Ties the Knot holds a special place in my heart as it was the first Tessa Dare book I read way back in 2015 when I first started getting into historical romance. It’s now one of my go-to recommendations for people new to the historical romance genre.
It’s been ages since I last read Romancing the Duke and I forgot how much I love this one! Tessa Dare kicks off her Castles Ever After with a spin on Beauty and the Beast with the delightful tale of Ransom and Izzy Goodnight.
A Week to Be Wicked was the second Tessa Dare book I ever read back in the mid-2010s when I was first really dipping my toes in historical romance, so this book holds a special place in my heart. Full disclosure, I’ve reread this book a handful of times and it’s safe to say I love this one.
A Night to Surrender kicks off one of my all-time favorite Tessa Dare series, Spindle Cove! If you’re new to the historical romance genre, I love to recommend this series as a great place to start. Tessa Dare brings the wit, the steam and the humor in all the books of this series.

I want to preface this review by saying I’m a sucker for anything written by Lauren Layne. I will automatically be excited and buy whatever book she is publishing without even knowing or caring what it is about. In my book, she’s one of the top contemporary romance authors out there. With To Sir, With Love, Layne once again hits it out of the park.
When I found out there was a spinoff series to the London Steampunk series, I was excited yet also nervous. I loved the London Steampunk series so much – would the spinoff live up to my expectations? After reading Mission: Improper I think it is safe to say it the series will – and it might even surpass those expectations.
Oh, man. My Lady Quicksilver starts off with a bang and does not let up! In the third entry in the London Steampunk series, the story shifts to focus on Sir Jasper Lynch, the leader of the Nighthawks, and Rosalind Fairchild, aka Mercury the leader of the humanist movement.
This is my second attempt at this review as I somehow lost the first version I wrote, which I bet was a lot better than this one since I’m writing this over a week or so since I read the book instead of the next day. Sigh. Technology.
Heart of Iron is book two in the London Steampunk series by Bec McMaster and it does not disappoint! I am in love with the world that McMaster has created and she manages to build on it even more in this book as we get even deeper into the politics at play within the Echelon and learn more about the verwulfen.
