Fiction Friday

It's been a few weeks so lets catch up with where we were. The end of September and books beginning with A, I think.

The last five A titles I read began with the word 'All'. Unfortunately only one was worth mentioning.
All In with the Duke (Gambling on Love #1) by Ava March. I have to admit I've had this book in my TBR pile for years. Why hadn't I read it before now? I love historicals. And Rent Boy stories. Why then? I'll tell you. All the people on GR that had shelved this as BDSM, that's why. I'm cautious when it comes to BDSM stories and let that caution push this book away every time it came up on my radar. However, in reality there is very little bdsm in this story, and yes I typed it in little letters on purpose, because for me it was only minor play and really didn't have that much impact on the story. The focus was the relationship and how it could possibly work. And I loved this book. Thankfully there are two more books in the series.

With the send of September came the end of reading books beginning with A. Did I move on to B? Nope.

As a transition book (and because I wanted to finish the series) I read the last book in J L Langley's Sci-Regency series, book 3 My Regelence Rake. Relationship-wise this was on a par with book 2 for me but there was less focus on the overarching story line and unfortunately this wasn't finished. MRR was published in 2013. I have stalked the author somewhat and apparently she is working on book 4 and hopes to have it ready for publication in mid 2017.

October's reading challenge is 'books by some of my favourite authors'.
There may be a lot of recommendations.
Perhaps I should start a separate post...
