The Other Miss Bridgerton The Other Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn is $1.99! This is the third book in the Rokesbys series and also described as a Bridgertons prequel. However, readers say this works fine as a standalone. Quinn is an auto-buy for a lot of romance readers, though some were unable to forgive the hero for kidnapping the heroine. She was in the wrong place… Fiercely independent and adventurous, Poppy Bridgerton will only wed a suitor whose keen intellect and interests match her own. Sadly, none of the fools from her London season qualify. While visiting a friend on the Dorset coast, Poppy is pleasantly surprised to discover a smugglers’ hideaway tucked inside a cave. But her delight turns to dismay when two pirates kidnap her and take her aboard a ship, leaving her bound and gagged on the captain’s bed… He found her at the wrong time… Known to society as a rascal and reckless privateer, Captain Andrew James Rokesby actually transports essential goods and documents for the British government. Setting sail on a time-sensitive voyage to Portugal, he’s stunned to find a woman waiting for him in his cabin. Surely, his imagination is getting the better of him. But…

B- The Beast of Beswick by Amalie Howard November 26, 2019 · Entangled: Amara Historical: EuropeanRegencyRomance The Beast of Beswick is what you get when you put Beauty and the Beast and The Taming of the Shrew into a blender with a whole lot of feminism and drink the results. The heroine, Astrid, is beautiful, bookish and prickly; full of feminist rage; and determined to protect her sweet, pretty, but surprisingly shrewd younger sister, Isobel. The hero, Thane, is horribly scarred; very brooding and moody; and rather inclined to embrace the role of a villain in a gothic novel. His saving grace is a rather sarcastic sense of humour, and the hero and heroine spend most of the book arguing, bickering, and fighting with each other. This is less distressing than it may sound – both Astrid and Thane clearly enjoy a good fight with someone who isn’t afraid to fight back – but if you don’t enjoy conflict between hero and heroine, this book is probably not going to be for you. I want to start by noting that while there is a good strong homage to The Taming of the Shrew here, Thane absolutely does not share Petruchio’s…

If you needed some Cover Snark today, we have your back! Sneezy: Where did his hands go? Did his pecs eat them? And has anyone held a baby like that? It doesn’t look comfortable for either party????? Amanda: no thank you on all fronts Tara: Someone got paid to Photoshop a baby on a bodybuilding flex? Also, are cyborgs one of the last frontiers of secret baby books? Sneezy: Oh GOD, don’t say that out loud!!!!! Someone’s going to take that as a challenge!!!!!! Next thing you know, we’ll be up to our ears in the secret babies of a newt’s third toe. Sarah: When my supremely reflux-y sons were babies, carrying them like that could give them some gas relief from both ends. However, even with breastfeeding my chest was not that big. And I have plenty of real estate up there. Also if that baby doesn’t have a diaper on, there will be some pee. Count on it. Hope it doesn’t short circuit the cyborg. Sneezy: Babies are terrifying Tara: As someone who had a similar problem with their first baby, I can also guarantee that baby will barf down his arm. Sarah: oh yeah. If there’s rocking…
