Lost in Darkness

Lost in Darkness by Michelle Griep My rating: 5 of 5 stars I’ve read quite a few of Michelle Griep’s books, and I have to say, this is my 2nd favorite. It’s very different, and I think that’s part of why I liked it so much. It’s not the same-old/same-old that historical romance can sometimesContinue reading “Lost in Darkness”

The Thief of Blackfriars Lane

The Thief of Blackfriars Lane by Michelle GriepMy rating: 4 of 5 stars My favorite thing about this book is the characters. Kit is spunky and independent, as non-conformist as they come. Jackson is straight-laced and loyal, with a heart for justice. They come together with all the sparks you’d imagine. Their banter is wittyContinue reading “The Thief of Blackfriars Lane”

The House at the End of the Moor

The House at the End of the Moor by Michelle Griep My rating: 3 of 5 stars A good story set in 1860s England. It’s told from three points of view, the hero, the heroine, and a villain, which makes it different from most romance stories. The heroine is written in 1st person point ofContinue reading “The House at the End of the Moor”

The Noble Guardian

The Noble Guardian by Michelle Griep My rating: 3 of 5 stars Full disclosure: I haven’t read the first two books in this series. This novel is good, but it didn’t blow me away like the author’s The Captured BrideĀ did. It really felt like it needed a good editing job, lots of repeat words andContinue reading “The Noble Guardian”

The Regency Brides Collection

The Regency Brides Collection: 7 Romances Set in England during the Early Nineteenth Century by Michelle Griep My rating: 4 of 5 stars This was a nice collection of stories set during the same time frame, but vastly different in many other ways. I enjoyed the collection, but the stories that really stuck out atContinue reading “The Regency Brides Collection”

The Captured Bride

The Captured Bride by Michelle Griep My rating: 5 of 5 stars Those who follow my reviews know that I absolutely love the books by Laura Frantz and Jocelyn Green. Now it’s time to move Michelle Griep into that top tier of favorite historical/historical romance authors. She hit this one completely out of the park.Continue reading “The Captured Bride”

Of Rags and Riches

Of Rags and Riches Romance Collection: Nine Stories of Poverty and Opulence During the Gilded Age by Michelle Griep My rating: 4 of 5 stars Lovely collection! One of the better that I’ve read. Delightful heroines and dashing heroes by some authors I’ve read before and some I haven’t … but will again. The contrastContinue reading “Of Rags and Riches”

A Heart Deceived

A Heart Deceived by Michelle Griep My rating: 4 of 5 stars I was really enjoying this story until I got to the part about the madam of a bawdy house … who shares MY name! Spelling my name the way I do – with the double G on the end – is actually theContinue reading “A Heart Deceived”
