Wicked All Day by Liz Carlye


Miss Zoë Armstrong is beautiful, charming, rich -- and utterly unmarriageable. So, while she may be the ton's most sparkling diamond, her choice of husbands looks more like a list of London's most unsavory fortune hunters. Since a true-love marriage seems impossible, Zoë has accepted -- no, embraced -- her role as society's most incomparable flirt and mischiefmaker...until in one reckless, vulnerable moment, her future is shattered.

Stuart Rowland, the brooding Marquess of Mercer, has been part of Zoë's extended family since she was a child. As dark and cynical as Zoë is lively, Mercer has always known they would be the worst possible match...until his scapegrace brother Robert does the unthinkable, and winds up betrothed to Zoë. Now, secluded on Mercer's vast estate to escape a looming scandal and the ton's prying eyes, Zoë and Mercer may find that a dark obsession has become a tempestuous passion that can no longer be denied....


My Thoughts; Zoe and Robin were fun characters I enjoyed thier story and the antics they got themselves in to. I read this book on the reccomendation of my friend Leslie and im glad I finaly did read this gem of a book. This was my first Liz Carlye book and I will be picking up some of her other books for sure.

To Hold the Crown By Jean Plaidy


To Hold the Crown tells the story of Henry VII and his wife Elizabeth of York,most of the story was surrounded by Henry's quest to hold on to the crown and keep his family on the throne. Fighting off pretenders and trying to produce as many sonsas he could i felt the story lacked in the area of Elizabeth's story. She is mentioned in the beginning of the story and towrads the end where she is asked to befriend her daughter in law Katherine of Aragon to find out if her marriage to Arthur was in in fact a true one.Shortly after Elizabeth dies and that's all we hear of her. All in all the book was a fast read and I enjoyed reading it as i do all of Jean Plaidy's novels. I just wish it included more of Elizabeth of York's story
