Top Ten: Single Dads

With Father’s Day around the corner, we thought this would be the perfect time to show our appreciation for all the fictional daddies that we have fallen in love with. Is there anything sexier than a hot single dad playing tea party with his little princess? Or playing catch with his little man? All he needs is a puppy and I think our ovaries would actually overload. If you, like us, find this irresistible take […]

Top Ten Books That Hit the Funny Bone

Posted February 17, 2017 by Suzanne in Top Ten, Under the Covers / 15 Comments

  I love a funny book, if a book manages to make me laugh then it is pretty much guaranteed to get a good review from me; I’m sucker for it. You can’t swing a cat in Romancelandia without hitting a tank load of angst and heartbreak, it seems like authors are all vying to see who can make you cry the most. Writing a “darker” book also seems to be synonymous in people’s mind […]

Top Ten: RakesTop Ten

Top Ten: Rakes

When I say rakes, I am being polite, what I mean is our Top Ten Manwhores, rakes implies that they are all historical romance based, which they aren’t. This list is proclaiming our favourite heroes who definitely are not virgins, in fact their non-virginal and more stick-it-in-anything-that-stands-still attitude is what got them on the list. However, we can’t be too upset about their slutty past, it has given them some skillz, skillz that our intrepid […]
