REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:

Two star-crossed lovers have fought themselves for years to forget their love – and when Lillian Davies needs help finding her missing brother, she knows there’s one person, the man who she’d least like to ask for help. Calvin Cabot is a self-made newspaper mogul, and seems to try to help all those around him, even at his own expense. One of my new favorite historical romance authors, Joanna Shupe’s The Knickerbocker Club Series has been refreshing and quick-reading. Though not my favorite in the series, Mogul is excellent. Shop the full series: The Knickerbocker Club.

Much Ado About Highlanders by May McGoldrick

****4/5 stars- loved it

Much Ado About Highlanders is a fast-read with action-packed Highland charm.

Recommended readers:

  • If you’re a fan of Scottish Romance
  • If you like Monica McCarthy, Kat Martin and others
  • and if you like a fast-reading romance

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 4/5 for characters
  • 4/5 for plot
  • 4/5 overall

REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:

After a few months off of Scottish historical romance, Much Ado About Highlanders reminded me why it’s one of my favorite genres. From political and war drama to person mini-conflicts, there is so much to love about the Highland heroes and their heroic women – and May McGoldrick captures it all. Strong characters and interesting twists add to the characters: Alexander Macpherson is the quintessential Highland leader – brave, sexy and fierce. And he’s met his match with Kenna Mackay, his runaway wife.

After enjoying the novel, I’ve added May McGoldrick to my to-read list and have checked out their full list on Amazon.

REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:

The first in a new series by Joanna Shupe, Magante is fabulous, quick reading historical romance. You’ll jump right into the Gilded-Age action as Elizabeth Sloane tries to make her way in a man’s world. Lizzie has secretly traded stocks with amazing results and wants to go out on her own, but being of the upper class the results could be damaging to her reputation. The advancing times of the late 1800s make the setting unique for a historical romance – and very refreshing. I loved the historical lifestyle details and challenges of travel during that time, not to mention the steamy romance. With Magnate and Tycoon (the prequel novella), I’m hooked for the full series.

REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:

A prequel novella from a new series, Tycoon is worth every cent you pay for it (which is 99 cents on Kindle). With a mini-book this great, I’m hooked for the series! You’ll jump right into the Gilded-Age action as working girl Clara literally runs into wealthy banker Ted Harper. The advancing times of the late 1800s make the setting unique for a historical romance – and very refreshing. I loved the historical lifestyle details and challenges of travel, etc of the time. Can’t wait to see what’s next!
