My Weekly Bookishness ~ 2/11/2022

All things bookish!

What I Read:


What I'm Reading:


One good scandal deserves another...

Lady Alexandrina Lawson has never minded her widowhood. After the disaster that was her first marriage, she found it rather enjoyable, despite the pity she received. What the public saw as devoted mourning to a respected man was, in fact, a complete disinterest in participating in anything Society could offer her ever again. When an invitation to a cousin's London event proves disastrous for Alexandrina, her reputation, and that of her child, her choice becomes simple: rescue or ruin.

Enter Taft Debenham, Earl of Harwood.

Taft could not have less interest in Lady Lawson or her cold manner, but neither could he stand by and let her suffer a forced marriage to a drunken idiot. Sacrificing himself on the altar of Society, thinking how his own reputation might benefit, he provides a rather clever solution: marry the woman himself, and claim outrage for the offenses against her. Over the protests of his bride, and those of his own sanity, Taft begins the greatest scheme he could ever imagine. Nothing surprises him more than beginning to discover that his wife has a heart beneath her icy exterior.

And that he would do almost anything to claim it.

First Lines:

There was nothing that Taft Debenham, Earl of Harwood, loved so much as a good party.

"I am not damaged, Harwood," Alexandria snapped, defense roaring into place.


What I'll (Probably) Read Next:


Elle Brook

I’m pretty sure heartthrob Zane Masters is sabotaging my business, and I’m going to prove it.

It’s no secret that the big-shot CEO of Got Cake? wants to buy my bakery but I declined his offer––even though it was presented to me on a notecard with a triple chocolate donut.

For the record, I did not eat his over-priced donut... I threw it in the trash.

Off the record––I totally ate it, and oh my heck, it was finger-licking delicious.

Just as I get ready to release something new, Got Cake? announces something suspiciously similar.

Not forgetting the time three crates of fish got delivered to my shop. Dead fish.

It took me DAYS to get rid of the stench.
And Zane is my number one suspect.

The only way I’m gonna find the proof I need to stop all this nonsense is to get close to him. Real close.

He’s a man’s man with a hunky smile and a smolder that can melt any heart, I know exactly what an alpha male like him wants in a woman.

My friends think I’m playing with fire. But I'll do whatever it takes to unravel his dark secrets. And the only way I'll get hurt is if I let my heart get involved. That's not gonna happen.

Besides, there’s zero chance I’m gonna fall in love with my enemy.

Flirting with my Enemy is a cozy mystery romcom. Packed with swoon-worthy romance, heart-warming characters, laugh-out-loud humor, and an exciting mystery.

Q.   On average, how long does it take you to write a review? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

A.  From start to finish, maybe 20-30 minutes.  That includes the post set-up.


Bookishly Yours,

Linking up to:


  1. It sounds like the characters are in quite the predicament. Enjoy your current read! :-)

  2. 20-30 minutes per review? I'm jealous. If I'm really focused, I can knock a rough draft out in that time, but I usually get distracted and it's closer to an hour. Then I polish it later and schedule it after that.

  3. Hope you enjoy your current read!! Happy weekend!

  4. Happy Friday!
    I’m currently reading In Search of a Prince by Toni Shiloh, so I’ll share a line from there.
    “White noise filled my ears.”
    Hope you have a lovely weekend! 😀

  8. Happy Weekend! My First Line Friday Post is from The Valentine Proposal by Beth Pugh:

  9. My first line is from The Lady of Galway Manor by Jennifer Deible :
    Galway City, Ireland. April 16, 1920
    No one ever tells the truth about love.

  10. I love the company name Got Cake for a bakery. I kind of want that on a shirt now.

  11. Ah, I like the sound of Flirting with My Enemy.

    When I write a review, I go with my first thoughts. I write about my overall impressions of the book and its strengths. I rarely revise. I almost never post my reviews on my blog. Instead I review at Goodreads and link to my blog.

  12. I wish I could write reviews faster. I get stuck in my head and it honestly takes me hours!
    Flirting with my Enemy sounds fun, enjoy!

    Wishing you a great reading week
