The Taming of Lady Kate

Lady Kate Derramore has been banished from her home estate by her cousin Freddie who inherited it. He sends her to London to have her first season. Kate vows that she will find someone to marry and quickly, so that she can receive her inheritance and be able to be her teenage step-brother's guardian. While staying with her aunt in London Kate meets Jack, the Marquis of Northbrooke, she doesn't fall madly in love with him at first, but figures that he will marry her for convenience, because he too needs to marry before he will receive his inheritance. But there are certain things about Jack that worry Kate. He tends to disappear mysteriously, and no one, not even his best friend Caro knows where he goes or why. Kate figures that he has a girlfriend hidden away, little does she knows that he actually has a dangerous job that will put her own life in danger soon enough. Will Jack be able to save Kate and himself before it's too late?

I enjoyed this story. Regency romances are some of my favorite and the writing of this one is great. The one thing that I had a hard time with was the many sexual references. This is supposed to be a "clean" romance and it basically is, but the amount of sexual references left me blushing. I did like the characters and the story line was highly exciting.

I was able to borrow this one from my local library.

  1. This is one that I'm not familiar with, but I love Regency. Bummer about all the references.

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 




This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
