Hey, everyone! Today I thought it would be fun to share some of the romance books I’ve added to my TBR recently. I love doing these posts, so expect to see a lot more of them in the future. But for now, let me share these five with you.
Fires of Winter by Johanna Lindsey
This is a very old book, having been published in 1980, so whether I’ll actually ever be able to find this one is another story. But it’s a little bit different from the type of historical romance I usually read as it follows vikings. I’ve read a few YA books about vikings, and some more classical literature, but never anything solidly romance. I’ll be very excited if I do manage to pick this one up.
The Music of Love by Minerva Spencer
Possessing basically no musical talent myself, I really love reading books that include music in some way. This one also takes place Cornwall—the only place I’ve ever lived other than Melbourne, so it gets a double checkmark from me. The love interest in this has albinism as well, which if done well could be really great. But his name is also Stacy, so you know there’s that. Either way, this sounds really interesting to me. With all those aspects I should really enjoy this, so we’ll see how it turns out.
Never Have I Ever With A Duke by Darcy Burke
I won’t lie—I’m a sucker for a romance book that puts a spin on its title, whether that be some kind of pun or something else just fun, so I was immediately drawn into this one. I really love the dress on this cover too—I feel like we don’t see purple dresses often, so yay for that. And of course, the blurb mentions ‘smart, independent women’ which is naturally one of my absolute favourite things to read about in historical romance, but also just in general.
In Bed With the Earl by Christi Caldwell
Another pink/purple dress! Clearly I was just being sucked into all the books with purple on when I added these two. I actually found this one on Kindle Unlimited, so it’ll definitely be the first one out of these that I read, though I am determined to find the others. This series is called ‘Lost Lords of London’, and honestly that sounds right up my alley, so I’m excited to give this one a go very soon. I’m sure I’ll let you all know how that goes!
The Highwayman by Kerrigan Burke
I’ve added a few of Kerrigan Burke’s books to my TBR before, but I just can’t resist the idea of a book about a highwayman. It’s entirely my friend Sarah’s fault who went through a bit of highwayman stage and has now passed that onto me. Honestly, I have no regrets about that, or adding this one to my TBR. However, this is Victorian era which is a little more out of my comfort zone.
