One Last Battle to Go: What’s Going to Happen in Karen Marie Moning’s Feversong?

Feversong by Karen Marie Moning

A long-awaited conclusion, and a dreaded goodbye for loving readers.

ALERT: Hold it right there! Don’t scroll a single line further if you aren’t caught up on Karen Marie Moning’s “Fever” Series. Because: Here There Be Spoilers… and unrepentant fangirling.

Okay folks! This is it.

At last, after a long and wild ride, our time in Dublin is coming to an end. And if you are ready for the end then you are in a far better place than me emotionally. Because I am still trying to recover from the heartbreaking, exhilarating whirlwind that was last year’s Feverborn.

A quick catch up...

But there's no stopping Feversong, so while we wait for January let’s take a stroll though the Temple Bar, and reminisce.

KMM’s Fever universe started with the original five book series: Darkfever, Bloodfever, Faefever, Dreamfever (aka the book of pain and suffering) and Shadowfever (aka the book of pain and suffering, part 2). 

Book 1, Darkfever, introduce us to heroine-in-the-making Mackayla Lane at one of the darkest moments of her life: the death of her sister Alina. Angry and grieving Mac packs her bags and leaves home for Dublin determined to find her sister’s killer. Enter one shadowy, dangerous, and drop-dead-sinfully-sexy Jericho Barrons; more horrifying monsters than you can shake a stick at; and an insidious plot to end the world and, well, the rest is history.

First Look: Sabrina Jeffries’ The Danger of Desire (November 22, 2016)

The Danger of Desire by Sabrina Jeffries

Sabrina Jeffries
The Danger of Desire (The Sinful Suitors #3)
Pocket Books / November 22, 2016 / $7.99 print & digital

If you are a fan of historical romances, or socially conscious romances, and if you pull double back handsprings just thinking about the two of those things worked together into one novel, then you need to be reading The Danger of Desire.

With the same aplomb with which she tackled complicated but vital themes in the first two books of her Sinful Suitors series, Sabrina Jeffries has brought it home again with this newest addition. This book is a must-read, with enough humor and heart to leave you vaulting between tears and laughter.

In The Danger of Desire, Sabrina Jeffries gives her readers the long-awaited story (for me anyway - oh gosh I couldn’t wait for his book) of Warren, Marquess of Knightford and friend to Jeremy and Edwin - AKA the first two Sinful Suitors. Like his friends Warren is a charming mix of vaguely disreputable rogue and warm, loving protector. He falls somewhere between Alpha and Beta, with the best traits of both worlds.

A Ladies’ Guide to the Dangers of Riding in Carriages

 Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase

A Cautionary Guide by a Concerned Party

Dear Readers, it can be a clever and a dangerous game, riding in carriages. We have all heard the stories: Abductions! Entrapments! Elopements! One shudders to think. But if you are to protect yourselves, and play this game, you must first become familiar with the pieces on the board. So I have described below, three familiar forms of transportation. Ladies, read on! And fortify yourself against the dangers of these sometimes perfidious conveyances: 

THE CURRICLE

Technically the curricle has only two wheels, which makes it a buggy, and not a carriage. It is a small vehicle, towed by one or two horses, with a single bench seat that faces forward and can seat at most two people. And a curricle, unlike a coach, is open to the air, with a canopy which can be raised or lowered depending upon the weather...or the number of prying eyes. We have heard it said among the fashionable set that a curricle can hardly be considered scandalous as it is so open to the world. Not so! Ladies, I entreat you to remember the eventful courtship of the Marquess of Dain and Miss Jessica Trent (Lord of Scoundrels), which kept the scandal sheets of London well supplied! A curricle is, as I have suggested, small for two people, least of all one as large as the Marquess (fetch your minds from the gutters, ladies!). No wonder, then, that a certain Miss Trent ended up seated on his lap as they shared an intimate embrace. So be on your guard! The size of the curricle, it seems, is not an impediment, but an invitation to seduction; and a curricle may not be privacy itself, but it can be parked in a private place! Choose your riding partners, and your locations, carefully!
