Whatcha Reading? (112) + Podcast



Saturday post where you can share with us what you are currently reading, or just finished, and I will share my brief thoughts on books that I read during the previous week.

Once again, I've got a "podcast" of my reading week below. It should play this time! I'm sorry that last week's didn't work until I found the problem late Monday.

You get my rambling, swearing, and bloopers, all in one! I swear, I'll get better with the audio quality, etc. And editing; I'll look into an editing program. [Anyone have any recs for free audio editing programs for PCs? Let me know!]

[Pat's Review]: "Benediction"

romance novel covers, contemporary romance, Royal Pick, Benediction by Kelly Moran
Benediction by Kelly Moran
Publisher: Smashwords; 1 edition (August 8, 2017)
Series: Cattenach Ranch, 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance


As a child, Nakos Hunt left behind the familiarity of his Native American Arapaho tribe for time on Cattenach Ranch. Now the foreman, he's happily settled into his life, but the girl who befriended him all those years ago suddenly has him twisted inside out. He craves stability and purpose, and Amy Woods is anything but a calming presence. Though she's unbelievably gorgeous and about the only person who can drag a laugh from him, he's never been able to understand her. Then a moment changes everything, and an urgent need to protect her rises inside him. And doesn't let go. So does an aching desire and a bond he can't seem to control, no matter how hard he fights the need.

She's no one's version of ever-after...

Amy's not a stranger to disappointment. She's spent the majority of her life pulling up her bootstraps and flipping Karma the bird. Once, she may have dreamed of things like happiness and love, but those were for other people. Nakos has never been someone she deserves, yet the attraction between her and the meticulous sexy-as-sin cowboy is undeniable. And too tempting to ignore. Not only is he strong, patient, and respectful, he's showing her a kind of romantic passion she didn't think existed. But the secret she's keeping could shatter their perfect bubble, and when an old nightmare comes crawling back from the past, she realizes losing Nakos will be the one thing she can't recover from.

[Review]: "The Duchess Deal"

romance novel covers, historical romance, Royal Pick, The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare
The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare
Publisher: Avon (August 22, 2017)
Series: Girl Meets Duke, 1
Genre: Historical Romance


When girl meets Duke, their marriage breaks all the rules…

Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne’er-do-wells by night. Now there’s a new item on the list. He needs an heir—which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she’ll do.

His terms are simple:
- They will be husband and wife by night only.
- No lights, no kissing. 
- No questions about his battle scars.
- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s pregnant with his heir, they need never share a bed again.

But Emma is no pushover. She has a few rules of her own:
- They will have dinner together every evening.
- With conversation.
- And unlimited teasing.
- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s seen the man beneath the scars, he can’t stop her from falling in love…

[Pat's Review]: "Ten Days with the Highlander" + Excerpt and Giveaway!

Ten Days with the Highlander by Hayson Manning
Publisher: Entangled: Lovestruck (August 14, 2017)
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Go-getter Georgia Paxton has ten days to acquire a quaint hotel in the Scottish Highlands for her travel accommodation company before she’s off on her next grand adventure. Too bad the sexy, broody Scot who owns the place is dead against the idea…and that she’s in very real danger of losing their little bet to see who can convince whom first.

There’s no way Callum MacGregor is going to let the gorgeous American turn his tiny hometown over to bored tourists looking to satisfy their Outlander fantasies. He only has ten days to convince her to slow down and see the magic of the town and its people. If he succeeds, he won’t have to run her out of the county. But if he fails, Georgia might run off with his heart.
