Review: The Design and Construction of the Nautilus

So, embarrassing story time: I thought I’d put this review up ages ago! But here it is, sitting in my drafts… Anyway, this is one of the most unusual books I’ve read, a guide to exactly how Captain Nemo’s famous submarine, the Nautilus, could have been built.

Blog Tour: Mrs Sommersby’s Second Chance

Regency romance tends to be focused on women in their twenties – sometimes brand new debutantes of 18 feature, but more usually the heroines are in their twenties, ‘past it’ by the measure of the time, but still extremely young by modern standards. When I saw that Mrs Sommersby’s Second Chance had a heroine in her forties, I was really excited to see how this would change up the tropes of the genre, and I’m glad I signed up for the blog tour, because this is adorable!

Blog Tour: Reclaimed by her Rebel Knight

You know I jump at the chance to review Mills and Boon/Harlequin’s historical romance, so I was intrigued by Reclaimed by her Rebel Knight, as I don’t think I’ve read one set in the 13th century before! It turned out to be a lovely character-driven read that showcases a far more gentle and caring relationship than the title might suggest…

Blog Tour: Lord of Secrets

I am always on the look out for fantasy with a sense of humour – not necessarily funny or satirical, but something light-hearted and entertaining, rather than depressing and stodgy. Grimdark is really not my cup of tea. So I was incredibly excited to hear about Lord of Secrets, which was described as light, funny, and heartwarming in its press release – and boy did it deliver that and so much more!
