This past week was all about the historical romance and I read two wonderful books--Wicked and the Wallflower and An Affair with a Spare.
The first was Wicked and The Wallflower, the first book in the Bareknuckle Bastards series by Sarah Maclean. I love Sarah MacLean's books but I think she's outdone herself with this one--dark and dangerous with a heroine you will love. I can't wait for the next book in this series.
Next came An Affair with a Spare by Shana Galen. This book was delightful, complex, and a perfect addition to the series.
WICKED AND THE WALLFLOWER,
Bareknuckle Bastards Book 1 by Sarah MacLean
When Wicked Comes Calling . . .
When a mysterious stranger finds his way into her bedchamber and offers his help in landing a duke, Lady Felicity Faircloth agrees—on one condition. She’s seen enough of the world to believe in passion, and won’t accept a marriage without it.
The Wallflower Makes a Dangerous Bargain . . .
Bastard son of a duke and king of London’s dark streets, Devil has spent a lifetime wielding power and seizing opportunity, and the spinster wallflower is everything he needs to exact a revenge years in the making. All he must do is turn the plain little mouse into an irresistible temptress, set his trap, and destroy his enemy.
For the Promise of Passion . . .
But there’s nothing plain about Felicity Faircloth, who quickly decides she’d rather have Devil than another. Soon, Devil’s carefully laid plans are in chaos and he must choose between everything he's ever wanted . . . and the only thing he's ever desired.

Never before has Collette Fortier met a man as attractive as Rafe. But her father’s life is at stake, and succumbing to Rafe would be disastrous. But when Rafe turns the tables on her, offering support and friendship instead of a fleeting affair, Collette finds herself tempted in ways she never could have imagined…
