I didn’t read much last month. The holidays took everything out of me.

Devil’s Daughter (The Ravenels #5) by Lisa Kleypas (audio) | 4.25 out of 5
Breaking Fate (Fallen Guardians #2) by Georgia Lyn Hunter | 4.25 out of 5
Guardian Unraveled (Fallen Guardians #3) by Georgia Lyn Hunter | 4 out of 5
Devil in Disguise (The Ravenels #7) by Lisa Kleypas (audio) | 3.75 out of 5
Heart’s Inferno (Fallen Guardians #4) by Georgia Lyn Hunter | 4.5 out of 5
Shattered Dawn (Fallen Guardians #5) by Georgia Lyn Hunter | 4.25 out of 5

Recovery Road (Torpedo Ink #8) by Christine Feehan | 4 out of 5
Smoke and Steel (Wild West MC #2) by Kristen Ashley | 1 out of 5

My least favorite book was definitely Smoke and Steel by Kristen Ashley. I just kept expecting it to get better & it never did. Very disappointing.

    Unfortunately, I didn’t have any good reads last month; instead, I had back-to-back disappointments: The Choice by Nora Roberts and The Reluctant Countess by Eloisa James. Nora Roberts book just dragged and was too similar to all her other futuristic novels. I’ve said this before, but how many more times is she going to write the heroine’s mother as uncaring. She repeats this theme in almost every story.

    I read 11 books in December. My favorite was Cate C. Wells’s THE LONE WOLF’S REJECTED MATE. It was so good, it made my Favorites of 2022 list!

    Some December favorites include Ocean’s Echo by Everina Maxwell, The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy by Megan Bannen, and a reread of Linesman by SK Dunstall.

    Least favorites I simply put aside unfinished.

    December was super busy so didn’t read too many books, the few I read came off my TBR pile. I didn’t have a least favorite but my absolute favorite was Robin Bielman’s Talk British To Me, Matteo is such a swoony book boyfriend!
