Short and Sweet Book Reviews #233 - A Devil of a Duke by Madeline Hunter, Christmas at the Grange by TE Kinsey

A Devil of a Duke (Decadent Dukes Society, #2)A Devil of a Duke by Madeline Hunter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Gabriel St. James, Duke of Langford, and Amanda Waverly should never have crossed paths. Amanda is using skills she learned as a child to try to save her mother. Gabriel just happens to have access to a house she needs. This is a great cross between right and wrong, love and rejection, and high and low status. Hunter provides a nice mix of danger, tension, and interesting characters. I loved Gabriel as he worked through what he really wanted. Amanda was what he wanted and she knew they could never be together because of the difference in status. Very interesting plot, good character development and a well developed romance made for a hard to put down story.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.

Christmas at The Grange (Lady Hardcastle Mysteries #3.5)Christmas at The Grange by T E Kinsey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lady Emily and Flo are guests at the Grange for Christmas. It seems that everywhere they go there is a mystery to be solved. This time it is a missing broach. There are clues to follow, characters to quiz, all while participating in the fun and frolic of the season. This was well put together and our two detectives solve the theft. I had a idea about the outcome from the beginning. Even so I was prepared to be surprised. Again the narrator made a fun story even more fun.
