Courting Claudia - Robyn DeHart A sweet love story. As a debut novel there are a few rough spots but overall DeHart's voice is engaging. I fell in love with Derrick and Claudia and enjoyed reading. DeHart navigates the changes in her hero and heroine well.
The Betrayal of the Blood Lily - Lauren Willig While Willig's strong writing shines as always, I felt that this book did not have the usual aplomb of her series. From any other author, it would have been notable, but Willig has made a name for herself in redefining the breezy, humorous regency spy romance. Penelope and Alex are interesting but the extramarital side to their romance turned me off. I also felt that the Indian setting, while portrayed vividly, was not as intriguing as England. All in all, interesting but not my favorite.
Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula - Elise Stokes Accidentally infected with a secret formula that gives her super powers, Cassidy Jones was once just your average every day teen girl. Now, she has to learn to navigate her crazy new powers - with the help of perhaps the most interesting character in the novel, Emergy.Despite not being the target audience for this novel, I really enjoyed it. Stokes' voice is vibrant but very much in character. As a romance lover, I kept waiting for something to happen between Emery and Cassidy. Stokes hints at it, so I'm hoping she develops that angle.All in all, this was well worth the small cost.
A Duke of Her Own - Eloisa James While the relationship between Eleanor and Leopold was certainly interesting. James pulls out the plot impediments of Gideon and Lisette for far too long. I ended up skipping over the parts involving them to get back to the true romance of Eleanor and Leopold. While the book was indeed humorous, I probably won't read it again.
