Harem: An MFMM RomanceHarem: An MFMM Romance by Abby Angel
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

After reading 56% of the book I think I can safely say that this is not my type of book. The sex scenes are very graphic which I presume is the point and I disliked all the characters.

A Cruel Necessity (John Grey Historical Mystery, #1)A Cruel Necessity by L.C. Tyler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

1657 and John Grey has gone home to Clavershall West, his home in Essex. After a drunken night he wakes up to find a body on the village's dung heep. Faced with the reluctance of the local magistrate to investiate he decides to do so.
In this story Grey seems at times to be naive, so I look forward to find out if he becomes more worldly in his approach to life and its mysteries. But I did enjoy this story.

A Required Engagement: A Pride and Prejudice VariationA Required Engagement: A Pride and Prejudice Variation by Nora Kipling
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

In this variation the characters are several years younger than canon and Darcy the elder is still alive. When rumours of son's unnatural desires come to his ears he orders Darcy to marry one of the daughters of an acquaintance. Darcy escapes to Bingley's estate at Netherfield. Where Wickham has plans.
Three stars for the plot, though this is not a standalone novella. Needs a bit of editing.

Egyptian Enigma (Dr Pimms, Intermillennial Sleuth, #3)Egyptian Enigma by L.J.M. Owen
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Dr. Elizabeth Pimms has returned from Egypt believing that information that she found in the Cairo Museum is incorrect. With er band of sleuths she aims to find the answer. Meanwhile we get to discover the story of the reign of the pharoah Tausret.
This is my second book in the series that I have read, I think for me there is just too much personal history in the story. The writing, the main character and the story just didn't catch my imagination and found it difficult to engage in the story.

Mr. Darcy's BrideMr. Darcy's Bride by Rowan Renault
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The worst has happened. Collins after being rejected by Elizabeth has been accepted by Charlotte Lucas, but then Mr. Bennet is found died. Who can possible save the Bennets now, especially as Bingley having left Netherfield with his guests is now staying in Scotland.
Can Darcy really persuade Elizabeth to marr him.
An enjoyable story but not a lot of Wickham, Caroline Bingley or Lady Catherine.

The Baronet's Bride (Midnight Quill, #1.5)The Baronet's Bride by Emily Larkin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Gareth Locke came back from Waterloo without his left arm, but a baronet. But this was not enough for his fiancee. Then he met Cecily Locke, poor, widow and a lady's companion. Now it is their wedding night and can it go as bad as both expect.
A very sweet and lovely, well-written novella. Easily showing the emotions that both of them felt. This is the final part to the Midnight Quill series but could easily be read as a standalone but I would recommend reading the previous two first.
