Mistress to the Merciless Millionaire - Read :)

  • In super brief, the hero rejected and humiliated the heroine ten years ago, and a tense ten years have past, so now they get their happy ending with each other. I'm not exactly a big fan of these types of story lines (people who parted years ago on a bad note, now coming together etc). I personally prefer to read every other type. But I still have to read Mistress to the Merciless Millionaire because 1) it's by Abby Green, 2) it stars the uber alpha brother of Sorcha (heroine from Bought for the Frenchman's Pleasure). His little appearance in that book just rocks my world. ☺
  • Type of story aside, I still love the ending to hell ♥. Lots of talking and clarification involved, so that I wasn't left hanging thinking 'hey what about that part where (blah-blah-blah), shouldn't you apologise for that too?'. Satisfaction is always guaranteed for me when reaching the end of an Abby Green book, no matter the theme.
  • I sorta wished to see more of Sorcha and Romain (from Bought for the Frenchman's Pleasure), but then from reading Abby Green's previous books, secondary characters aren't everywhere. Whenever they're mentioned, they probably last less than a page. That's another reason why I love her books. Everything, every page is always about the main couple. You just learn so darn much about them. Secondary romances are probably more suitable to be in books with 400 pages, so yeah this is not a new discovery I know.
  • Now, I do not have much Abby Green backlist left to read. So Ms Green, please write faster. ☺

Ruthless Greek Boss, Secretary Mistress!

I just saw the cover for Abby Green's up-coming Dec 2009 book: Ruthless Greek Boss, Secretary Mistress.

Copied from Abby Green's website:

Three Weeks in the Boss’s Bed!

Lucy Proctor watches the women who come and go in Aristotle Levakis’ life. She has no desire to join them, despite Ari’s devastating good-looks, and is perfectly content as his assistant – or so she tries to convince herself!

Ari shouldn’t find his prim and plump secretary attractive, but something about her calls to him. He knows there is only one way to overcome this desire – and that is to sate it...

Read an Excerpt

Happyhappyhappydance ♥♥

I'm going to start on Mistress to the Merciless Millionaire after I switch off this computer. ☺

The Raven Prince - Part 2 - Finished!

  • Whywhywhy do I have to read this book on a weekday?
  • Ending is kinda abrupt for me. I want more. The next book?
  • The Raven Prince is actually my second historical read for this year. Gosh, what happen between me and historicals? I love them so much when I first discovered romance novels. But then I prefer medievals. Hard to find really goods ones though... Jill Barnett destroyed all other medieval romances for me.
  • Back to the book: Poor, poor Edward when *spoiler?* Anna left him (albeit temporary). Though I like how Iddesleigh came to "rescue" him from his self-pity, I do wish Edward gets to wallow in self-pity longer. I love reading about his thoughts of him & Anna ♥. But it's just me.
  • Thank you bloggers in Romancelandia for mentioning/reviewing The Raven Prince until I took enough notice of it to try it for no good enough reason. Thank you too, to my own randomness in choosing books. Mistress to the Merciless Millionaire, you are next. And no my dear, it's never random with you.☺

The Raven Prince - Part 1

  • I LOVE Anna and Edward, LOVE them. LOVE their "arguments". And yes, they're pretty flaming in bed :)
  • Favorite part so far? I have too many favorite parts. I love it the most when Edward and Anna are together. When they first met (how the book started), their moments with the dog, when Edward got rose bushes for Anna, when Edward agrees to go the soiree because of Anna, when Edward blah-blah-blah for Anna... every part with the two of them together. Really ♥. I thought the book was going downhill for me when Edward first goes to London (*gasp* alone! Are they gonna be separated for the rest of the story?). But luckily Anna caught up pretty quick. And my enjoyment had been all the way up there so far.
  • I enjoyed the many times when Edward says *maybe spoiler?* that they (he and Anna) are getting married. I love it when he (kinda) works for it, keeps mentioning it, and Anna kept saying no. I think it's cute☺.
  • Edward ♥. The earl, not the glittering vampire.

ABBY GREEN - The Spaniard's Marriage Bargain.

  • I finished reading The Spaniard's Marriage Bargain, and *sigh*. I so love the making up at the end. The conversations. The hero's/heroine's apology/grovelling speech just awes me. It' so elaborate. You know, like it completely explains everything, why they felt this way, why this, why that, when, how, blah... wow. It's not just "I'm sorry, pls forgive me, I love you, marry me." It's oh-so-much MORE. The character just completely opens up. Wow really. Really wow. Makes me feel very satisfied. Very.

Hard As Nails rant, and some blahs.

  • Hard As Nails - Yay finished the book. Love every conversation. It just makes you want to read on and on and on. The wit can just go on and on and on... and Cole's story is my fav. I fell in love with it since the word "sledgehammer".
  • Not that I've read a lot of younger men with older women stories (and not that I'm always looking for those kinds), but there are just some authors who just can write and make you enjoy those themes/whatever that you don't really care about.

Current read, new book, old books..

  • Tasting Fear arrived. *Checks calender for a good weekend to read it. *
  • I've got a number of favourite books with pages getting... old. Brown. Yellowish. Spots breaking out (whatever you call them). I've thought about selling them and then buying new ones again online.
