Lila groaned and looked down at the coarse rope clinched tight around her hands, doubly grateful that the bastards had left her legs free, even if she was trapped by the abominable dress. A full skirted, flimsy green contraption with too much gossamer and a waist so tight she could hardly breathe and why in god’s name must women do this to themselves? (%1 Kindle)

He winced. “What happened?”

She did not quite look at him when she said, “I may have set someone’s dress on fire.”(42% eARC Kindle)


“I hate you!” she called.

He couldn’t help but smile. It was quite the merriest declaration of hate he’d ever heard.

“I hate you, too,” he murmured.

But he didn’t meant it, either. (57% eARC Kindle)

So happy that there’s more Bridgertons in my life! It’s always a fun times with the Bridgertons (and now the Rokesbys)!

  1. I’ve still got to make my way through ADSOM. I’ve picked it up a couple times and just can’t find a groove. I hope you’re enjoying AGOS! Here’s my TT.

    1. If I remember correctly, it’s a bit of a slow start, but it seriously gets awesome! So definitely give it another go 😉
      Thanks, I am!

  2. The first teaser made me nod in agreement. Why indeed do women do that kind of thing to themselves.

    1. Sometimes I wonder, haha. And high heels.

  3. I am more interested in Because of Miss Bridgerton. Going to read your review of it now.

    1. It’s a super cute read! Thanks for stopping by (:

  4. They both sound good. Hope you enjoy them. My Teaser is from Quick and the Dead by Susan Moody.

    1. Thanks! Because of Miss Bridgerton was awesome and I’m really enjoying AGOS right now (:

  5. They both sound interesting. The Bridgerton book sounds a bit like Gone With The Wind. Earned a chuckle from me. 🙂

    1. There’s lot of pretty funny moments 🙂

    These both sound great. I want to read them both. This week it is an historical romance – Luck Is No Lady by Amy Sandas – on my adult blog. Happy reading!

    1. Because of Miss Bridgerton is a great read! And I’m really enjoying AGOS, both definitely worth picking up!

    I like the sound of both of these! A Gathering of Shadows is on my wish list to read. I will have to look for the Quinn book. I hope you enjoy them!

    1. I’m a few chapters into AGOS and it’s awesome!
      Definitely check out Julia Quinn, her romances are lovely 🙂

  8. Both books sound like stories I’d enjoy.
    My Tuesday post features a mystery thriller: THE SHADOW CARTEL.

    1. Happy to hear that (: Thanks for stopping by!

  9. A Darker Shade Of Magic is one of my next reads as well; it sounds so good! I love your teasers; I hope you’ll enjoy both books.

    Happy reading! Here’s my teaser of Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch.

    1. Yay! Hope you enjoy it! it’s a super awesome read!
      Thanks for stopping by!

  10. I keep seeing great things about A Gathering of Shadows – but I’ve ALREADY spent my April allowance on books and I MUST be self disciplined because I have to set an example to Himself who is frankly completely out of control with his book-buying habit. Whereas I’m only slightly out of control. *sigh* My TT this week is all about running away from demons…

    1. Hopefully next month then 😉 It’s seriously an awesome read! haha. Good luck with following your book allowance 😉

      1. I’ve just noticed Himself has bought it for us lol… So I can tuck in as soon as I’ve finished reading the next new release coming up and enjoy! Thank you for the recommendation and have a great reading April:)
