"Dalliances & Devotion," by Felicia Grossman

★ ★

Historical Romance

Felicia Grossman is the singular reason I, as a non-historical romance junkie, have developed a new appreciation for a genre I had all but written off. Her debut Appetites & Vices (which I reviewed here!) was the first historical romance my contemporary-loving heart adored. So, needless to say, I was champing at the bit for the next in The Pruitts series from Carina PressDalliances & Devotion. And just as her first book left me swooning and in love, so did this one.

"Racing Into Love," by Noah Steele

New Adult Gay (M/M) Romance

I had the pleasure this week of reading the delightful Cut to the Feeling series by Noah Steele. He offered me books one and two plus a companion novella several months ago as a sort of “package deal.” It was so much fun to start with Aiden and Derrek in Racing Into Love, then follow Oliver into his own love story with Seth in Fighting for Love, while rounding out the experience with the tasty treat of Beckett and Alex’s darling first time romance in Act of Love.

"Love Repaired," by Deana Birch

Contemporary Romance

Guuuyyysss. Deana Birch has been one of those authors I’ve kept an eye on ever since her debut. I’ve read every book she’s written, and am constantly left with a smile on my face when I do. However, Love Repaired really, really hit it home for me. Out of all her novels, this is by far the cream of the crop. I adore how it shows her growing as an author, and it makes me love her even more!

M/M (Gay) Historical Paranormal Romance

Have mercy. It’s official, y’all. I have found my new favorite book. Hands down best read of the year. I can’t say enough how much I absolutely loved and adored Spellbound by Allie Therin. In fact, if I sat here and spewed all the fan-girling nonsense my fingers keep trying to type, y’all wouldn’t keep reading. Which would be a disservice to you, me, and this phenomenal book.
