Bad week. Fever on Saturday, tired on Sunday. Better, tired again,  And so it goes on. It's my sinuses, damn sinuses! I have had issues since Sep when I cleaned out this moldy storage area. It comes and goes.



.............................

England's "vampire craze" causes much vexation for the Lord Vampire of London, Ian Ashton. To save his reputation, Ian enlists aspiring authoress Angelica Winthrop without realizing she has hidden plans of her own.

Angelica Winthrop's life goal is to ruin her reputation, avoid marriage, and become a gothic authoress like her idol, Mary Shelley. To find inspiration for her new story, she breaks into the home of Ian Ashton, Duke of Burnrath, not knowing she will be coming up against the Lord Vampire of London. Romance sparks and reputations are at stake. But who knows the real difference between fact and fiction? 

My thoughts:
I do not know why, but I can still read historical paranormal romance. Huh. Maybe it's the fact that it's historical so they do not jump each other on p 2 and they did not feel insta love either. Must be.

Story: Angela wants to be ruined so she can focus on her writing.

Ian is a Duke who is trying to look normal, which is not easy since he is a vampire and there is a rumour out there that he is a vampire! Not good, there are hunters afoot.

They meet, he sees a way out of his strangeness, she not so much. They argue, and in the end they will fall in love cos that is what lovers do. 

Fun, cute.

  8. Hope you are feeling better. I thought I was coming down with another cold earlier this week, but it seemed to go away (fingers crossed it stays away!!!). Seems as though you still managed to have a pretty good week, though!

  9. Sinuses can be horrible. I know the feeling of not being able to look down or over your shoulder because of the pain ... I feel sorry for you and hope you'll recover soon. The photos are more beautiful every week, and you can definitely see the spring setting in. The book, yeah, cute. And you nailed it - he does look weird on the cover, lol :D Wishing you lots of good health <3
