I've got another two book reviews for you this week. These are regency romances and I find I oscillate between them and old west romances more often than other types of romance books. I don't mind modern western romances, but I like the mentality of the heroes in the old west. They're most often 'people who get stuff done' and I love characters like that. Maybe that's what's got my feet dragging on OLUS... Hmmm...
Anyway, on to the book reviews!!
Book Review: The Return of Lord Avondale by Lucy Adams
The Return of Lord Avondale: Regency Romance by Lucy Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I enjoyed reading this sweet Regency romance novel. It was full of appropriate etiquette and problems that fit the time period. I must confess to being disappointed in so many romances dubbed 'Regency' in which the heroes and heroines are doing all sorts of things that just don't fit the time period. I'm so happy this story wasn't like that. The dialogue and characters were exactly as they should be in my opinion.
My favorite character was the younger sister, who though she was a bit forward, stayed just within the bounds of propriety. I thought it was interesting that she showed more insight than her older siblings.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoys sweet romance, historical romance, or Regency romance.

Book Review: A Dangerous Deceit by Alissa Johnson
A Dangerous Deceit by Alissa Johnson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A heroine with an unusual problem and an investigator intrigued by the puzzle she presents made this book a super-win for me. I often miss things people tell me because I can't shut off my very busy mind without seriously focusing. In some ways, I could relate to the main character's frustration with her own struggle. It's different from mine in nature but presents some interesting problems all the same.
The author did an excellent job with the worldbuilding and characters. I really was taken away into the book world, able to immerse myself into it. I felt like I could relate to the different characters in different ways, even the villain.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical romance, regency romance, and adventure. I'd say more about this one but I don't want to give anything away. :)

I enjoyed both of these books but A Dangerous Deceit was my favorite by far. If you get a chance to read it, I highly recommend it just for the simple fact that it's not your average heroine involved.
