Jane Austen MMO

I'll just leave this here :)

Ever, Jane: The Virtual World of Jane Austen


If anyone is curious, I still read alot of romances and follow reader/author blogs. And I play a good damn lot of video games too, hence this post. And I blame real life for not letting me blog as often as I like. I'm still reading (and re-reading) mainly historicals, lately Elizabeth Hoyt (MAXIMUS!), Elizabeth Thornton, Loretta Chase, Jennifer Ashley, Anna Campbell blalalalala.

The Earl of Raleigh.

The Marriage Trap

The Marriage Trap by Elizabeth Thornton

I think this is the first time I'm satisfied with a hero who is really lacking the ability to speak the words "I love you".

The Earl's Mistaken Bride by Abby Gaines.

Recently (for the past year actually) I've been very, very into historicals because I discovered Elizabeth Thornton's heroes, so when I realised that Abby Gaines is writing a historical (OMGIsThiSReal), of the-hell course I have to read it.

So here we have.. The Earl's Mistaken Bride.

The Earl's Mistaken Bride

I'm not posting the book blurb here (not that I have a habit to) because it seems to make it just like any other historical. But to those who've read Abby Gaines' stuff, it is sooooo not.

And you can guess from the title what is going on anyway.

Marcus is actually like most heroes; "don't love me, I warn you not to fall in love with me"... but when the heroines declares "you're right, I don't love you at all", the hero just goes "what-the hell? Hey! I'm lovable!" Hahaha it never gets old for me.

This book (like others by Abby Gaines) is really suitable for me when I don't want any crazy emotional stuff (like Christie Ridgway, SEP, Pamela Morsi), and those too deep with history (Elizabeth Thornton duh).

It has the right amount of heart-warmingness to make me go *sigh* romance... just not toooo emotional that I keep sobing and eating ice-cream.

And as the heading on her website says, it definately left me smiling. Still smiling. And giggling thinking about how Constance surprises Marcus (and me) with her character. And actions. BWahahaha (:

I'm just so glad I can read enjoy a historical romance without going through saving-the-world as a side quest.

And I'm just estatic that there will be FOUR MORE BOOKS in the serie!

But I somehow think the author hates her readers because the next one comes out in September. (O_O) :(


And because this is the internet, I also have to state that I'm joking about the author hating her readers part. *sigh* Internet.

*Kinda little Spoiler*

When Constance first brings up annulment, I was like Ha! Gotcha Marcus! I just knew I'm going have fun reading their conversations.

And because I'm not feeling lazy, some links to the book:

Finished Demon from the Dark!

Master of Shadows by Angela Knight Totally loved how it turned out!

You know, I'm prefer reading about the men doing more in going after their women...with the women being hard-to-get-blah-blah-blah.

But in this case I just love how Carrow time and time again kept implying that she wants Malkom forever and it's not just "use him" for now.

I also love how Carrow (& Ruby!) reacted after being traced to safety without Malkom with them.

I had hoped to read more, but with the kidnapping/war/what-ever-is-going-on, going on and all that.. I'm still satisfied with the short (too short to me) ending.

And a nice touch to see so many couples (Rydstrom! Nikolai! *swoonnnn*) from previous books making a brief appearance too.

I can't wait to read Lanthe's story and also when Malkom will be paid so that he can buy Carrow their dream home. :)

Rant rant rant.. Oh Carrow.

Master of Shadows by Angela KnightI'm halfway through Demon from the Dark by Kresley Cole, and one thing I can't stop worrying is when (if?) Carrow betrays Malkom and seeing how sensitive Malkom is to betrayals... *sigh.

Though happily ever after if guaranteed, I still won't like reading what I guess might happen. Hopefully it won't.

This reminded me of when Cade (Dark Desires After Dusk) handled over Holly to the bad guy. I know things are gonna turn out ok but can't he say to hell to whatever he has to do and then solve things rather then hand Holly over THEN solve things?

Ya know what I mean?

Now Carrow is somewhat like in Cade's shoes.

And I still haven't forgiven Cade though.

Gawd I have a long memory. Guys. Better not piss me off!


On another note, the sexiness I expected from Kresley Cole books did not disappoint one bit. I want Malkom to feed me too! :(

The Way to Love a Woman.

I don't ever read reviews for books that I would definitely read. But while browsing through Dear Author I came across this line on Jane's review for Scandalous Desires (by Elizabeth Hoyt), "(...)he does come to love Silence unabashedly."
