From the beginning up until the 75% mark I was loving The Duke with the Dragon Tattoo by Kerrigan Byrne. The chemistry between The Rook and Lorelai was perfect and well timed, but things began to feel predictable and functional once as got closer to the end of their story. For example, once it was made known the effect Lorelai would have on the Rook I already knew who the villain would turn out to be that would try to ruin whatever happiness they would possible have. The shocker was the appearance of Dorian Blackwell and co. showing up and showing out; this was a delicious treat that I wasn’t expecting. Another issue that I found with The Duke With The Dragon Tattoo by Kerrigan Byrne was to over saturated mystery of The Rook’s past and possible future. I’m all for a mysterious hero but things with The Rook at […]

So I didn’t really mince words about how I felt about The Duke, but when I read the synopsis for The Scot Beds His Wife by Kerrigan Byrne I was so on board with its story. Other than Gavin’s unattractive attitude towards the Demon Highlander, aka Liam, and anyone who mentioned the Mackenzie name, he quickly entered my favorites along with Dorian, Christopher, and Liam. Don’t get me wrong, I understood what his issue was with his brothers, and the bad blood that comes from the Mackenzie name, I just wished that he was able to rise above it and not allow it to become a hindrance to him. Heck, Kerrigan Byrne went into detail in the prologue, but because she went into the same detail for Liam’s story your view of Liam won’t change but you will lament about the gap that was placed between Gavin and him.

The beginning of The Duke by Kerrigan Byrne started off as something that I thought was going to be spectacular, but somewhere along the way it lost its luster. On the heels of The Highlander I was chomping at the big to get my hands on the story of the Duke of Trenwyth. I was surprised when there wasn’t a heart breaking, gut wrenching prologue to give us the background to both Cole and Imogen, but I was pleased at the different direction the author wanted to go in. It was early on when my excitement and feel good feelings started to wane, and I believe it started when Cole didn’t recognize Imogen and turned mean, borderline cruel towards her. From that moment on the story of The Duke just didn’t feel the same. I understood the misunderstanding that was practically another storyline in and of itself swimming below the main story, but […]

Before I get into my review I just have to let it be known that The Highlander by Kerrigan Byrne was everything! Looking back, I don’t know why I hesitated in reading this as soon as it hit my kindle, but now that I’ve taken the plunge my standards for a great read has just been established, the rest of my 2016 has been changed. I will admit that it took me until our hero, Liam, and our heroine, Mena, traveled to London, closer to the end of the The Highlander, for me to remember who Mena was. Remembering her from The Hunter and all that she did to ensure the end game of Argent and Millie having their HEA, I feel ashamed now because the love and respect I have for her in The Highlander would’ve been taken to a whole other level (if that’s possible). Now that I’ve finished The Highlander – oh how […]

Just finished, literally just finished, and I am bursting at the seems to talk about The Hunter by Kerrigan Byrne. When I first read the synopsis I was unsure of whether this read would blow me away as The Highwayman did because I thought the heroine, Millie – who’s an actress, wouldn’t be strong enough for the world these heroes lived in. As I started reading I remember chanting to myself, “Please don’t be silly, please don’t be silly,” because it’s a stereotype (a sometimes accurate one) that the women in the same profession, during this time, played dumb but at the core self-absorbed since the power of being the best actress or best loved one was a power trip that would go to their head, especially during a time where women were just a step better than the servants. Did it turn out like I feared? No, it did not, […]
