Review: The Sum of All Kisses by Julia Quinn

by Kristi on October 29, 2013 · 0 comments


Julia Quinn is one of my favorite authors. My favorite book, of course, is Romancing Mr. Bridgerton. I adored that book and didn’t think that anything could compare but then she came out with Ten Things I Love About You and I laughed and laughed and did a happy sigh at the end. It wasn’t […]

Somehow the gods were smiling upon me and gave me the opportunity to read two super amazing ARCs this month. The one I’m talking about today is Archangel’s Blade by Nalini Singh. The 4th book in the Guild Hunter’s series changes to feature Dmitri, Archangel Raphael’s 2nd-in-command at the angel towers. While the 3 previous books were all […]
