The Reading Files - You know it's summer when ...

... it's hot and steamy and you're not even reading a romance novel. In this particular case however high temps and sexy reads kinda mixed. And please don't let the fact that I only read one book this week fool you. I have in the meantime decided to level up in the Tea & Books Reading Challenge and got started on my next tome Blood Memory (Greg Isles) which "only" sports a measly 760+ pages which should be a walk in the park compared to the tomes I previously trudged through.

A Talent for Sin (Lavinia Kent)

Thoughts. Three times widowed another marriage is the last thing Violet wants though her young lover heartily disagrees. Quivering bodies and devouring kisses bridge the gap from sweet to sultry, resulting in both a diverting and undemanding read which is perfect for those who like romantic fluff.

Last line. She wanted to protest, but as his warm tongue hit spots his breath had prepared, she rather thought they would do things his way - at least for now.

Verdict. Cliched yet enjoyable historical romance!


  1. I'm not a big romance reader, but I do enjoy a cliched romance now and again :)

    1. True, those are nice sometimes and helps the brain to unwind. :-)
