This HaBO request is from Jillian, who is looking for this historical romance: Here is what I know: (I was a teen when I read this book so most of what I remember is about the sex) – It is a historical romance that I read in the early 2000s, but based on the content and style my guess is it was published in the 80s or early 90s. – The two main locations I remember are the Hero’s ship (I believe a merchant ship) and a sheikh’s palace where his harem is kept. – The hero is a boat captain or pirate that gave me major Viking vibes but he could just be tall and have long blonde hair. – The hero has a dick so large that sex workers refuse to sleep with him. – The heroine is a virgin and someone of noble birth. – I may be confusing this with another book, but I believe the hero kidnaps the heroine in retaliation for something her father did to the hero’s family. – The heroine is either sold or given or kidnapped at some point after being with the hero on his ship and ends up part…

The Proposal The Proposal by Mary Balogh is $2.99! This is the first book in her Survivor’s Club series, which is a favorite amongst the Bitchery. Readers loved the hero, Hugo, but I will admit I’ve never read a Balogh that I wasn’t “meh” about. Balogh fans, what do you love about her books? In Mary Balogh’s engaging and seductive new novel of drama and romance, a woman comfortable in her solitude allows temptation to free her heart, when a daring war hero shows her how truly extraordinary she is. THE PROPOSAL Gwendoline, Lady Muir, has seen her share of tragedy, especially since a freak accident took her husband much too soon. Content in a quiet life with friends and family, the young widow has no desire to marry again. But when Hugo, Lord Trentham, scoops her up in his arms after a fall, she feels a sensation that both shocks and emboldens her. Hugo never intends to kiss Lady Muir, and frankly, he judges her to be a spoiled, frivolous–if beautiful–aristocrat. He is a gentleman in name only: a soldier whose bravery earned him a title; a merchant’s son who inherited his wealth. He is happiest when working the land, but duty…

This HaBO comes from E, who is hoping to find this historical romance: In these profoundly weird times I need my comedy Regency fix. I remember a book where the hero and heroine keep stealing an item back and forth from one another. I believe it was jewelry and had a special significance for the hero’s grandmother or mother. Thanks for any help you can provide. This is very familiar to me.

A- A Stroke of Malice by Anna Lee Huber April 7, 2020 · Berkley Historical: EuropeanMystery/Thriller I’ve read most of this series, and it’s among my favorite comfort reads. I’ve mentioned this before, but I started reading this series in Japan, when jet lag would gift me with a hard wake-up at 3am and I’d have no ability to get back to sleep. My memories of these characters are indelibly mixed with being wrapped in a duvet, hiding under the covers so the light from my e-reader wouldn’t wake everyone up. As a result, there are few mystery series more cozy for me than this one, and my email reply to Huber’s publicist asking if I’d like a copy of A Stroke of Malice was not chill by any stretch. It’s somewhat intimidating for me to review the eighth book in a series. Do readers need to start with book one in order to read this one? In this case, I don’t think it’s a requirement. While I have read most of this series, you probably also know that I don’t remember things well. This means I can re-read mysteries and be repeatedly surprised by them (bonus!) and also means…
