Book Of The Month - May

I've read some fantastic books since starting this blog and I'd like to give some of them a bit more recognition. So I've decided to add a new feature to the blog and give a special mention to one outstanding book each month. Feel free to add your thoughts of the chosen book in the comments below or even recommend an outstanding book of your own.

With This Kiss
Lady Grace Ryburn is in love with a dashing young lieutenant, Colin Barry,
but she turns away, thinking that Colin is in love with her sister.
Should Colin throw propriety to the winds, imitate his pirate father,
and simply take what he most desires?
Seduced by a Pirate
After years at sea, Sir Griffin Barry comes home to claim his wife.
But is Phoebe his wife, if their marriage was never consummated?
As an infamous pirate, Griffin claimed and kept gold and jewels . . .
but this is one treasure that will not be so easy to capture.

As You Wish is made up of two novellas; With This Kiss and Seduced by a Pirate. Both stories are connected, though they take place eleven years apart, and I thought they were fun - and a little bit naughty - stories that you could read in a day or two. As You Wish is the first book by Eloisa James that I've read but I enjoyed it and would definitely read more.

  1. Can't go wrong with pirates! I haven't even finished one book in May. Life swamped me, but things are settling down... I hope!

  2. I like the premise of the two connected novellas.

    1. I liked that too as I felt I already knew the characters before I started reading the next book.
