To me, the definition of a good read is one that you can't wait to finish but don't want to because you're enjoying the ride too much!
I'm a fan of fantasy fiction and I love being taken to places just outside my comfort zone. Kylie Scott takes us places that are both unlikely and daring. A well written witty read with characters you will fall for, plot twists that will surprise you and just the right amount hot kink that you'll think 50 Shades was tame.

I bought this book after reading a short review on a blog that I regularly follow. I really enjoyed reading it. The era is beautifully projected through wonderfully descriptive writing and characterisation. The story is written in the first person, the character is Auntie Mame's orphaned nephew who, even at the age of ten, is fully aware of the extremities of his aunt's exuberance. The innocent comments in relation to her "suitors" are perfectly pitched so as not to blot the reputation of the child making them, but just sharp enough to illustrate very clearly just how "with the times" Auntie Mame really was. It's not a convincingly true story and it's not remotely "shocking" to this… Read more
