October BOM and November Preview

Hello, fellow romance lovers!  It is Halloween weekend as I create this blog.  I have been watching scary movies and eating candy all weekend!  Here in the States, we are looking forward to Thanksgiving near the end of November.  I love to cook and bake; I start my holiday baking this month.  For November, I am featuring an overview of my October reviews.  I will then share with you my pick for October BOM – this was a hard choice!  After that, I will showcase what is coming up for November.  All my book reviews for October can easily be viewed by clicking on the book title.  Books are organized by release date.  Without further ado…here we go!


I read and reviewed fifteen books in October.  The rating stats are six five-star reviews, one four and a half star review, seven four-star reviews, and one three-star review.  I read fewer books due to reading several Christmas anthologies; those are monsters to read!  They are well over one thousand pages long.  Some of my favorite authors released excellent novels, some new authors pleasantly surprised me, and there were a couple of average books.  Overall, I enjoyed reading all these captivating books!  Books are listed by publication date.

October Book Of The Month

I have chosen Her Wild White by Tammy Andresen for my October BOM.  This is the fifth book in the Dark Duke’s Legacy series.  This entire family of siblings has enchanted me since book one.  Each book focuses on a different family member.  Her Wild White focuses on Lord Sayden, “Satan” White, and Samantha.  Sayden’s devil-may-care charm and sensual, intense character captivated me.  Behind the bravado, there is a man that is insecure in his emotions and vulnerable to love.  Sayden is my favorite brother.  Samantha is the perfect independent, intelligent bluestocking who has sworn off men.  Samantha shines as the woman that steals Sayden’s heart.  The plot is full of action, intrigue, and passion.  These characters are memorable and lovable.  Add the secondary characters of the entire White family, and you have a brilliant, savvy, sexy adventure!  Her Wild White is the perfect addition to my BOM club!
