Monday Musts: The Study of Seduction, RIP Phife Dawg & Favorite Bookish Posts

Monday Musts is a weekly event, started and hosted by Jessica @ Lovin' Los Libros, which asks you to highlight your must read, must listen and must see!

The Study of Seduction (Sinful Suitors #2) by Sabrina Jeffries

From Goodreads:
A marriage of convenience ignites into a passionate love affair in the hotly anticipated second novel in New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries’s addictive Sinful Suitors series!

When Edwin Barlow, the Earl of Blakeborough, agrees to help his best friend’s impetuous ward, Lady Clarissa Lindsey, in her time of need, he knows he’s in for trouble. He’s been hunting for someone to wed, and she’ll just get in the way. Although captivated by the whip-smart, free-spirited beauty, he fears she’d be all wrong as a wife ... if she would even take such a gruff cynic for her husband. Too bad he wants nothing more than to have her for his own.

Clarissa has no intention of marrying anyone—not Edwin, whom she’s sure would be an overbearing husband, and certainly not the powerful French diplomat stalking her. But when matters escalate with the diplomat, she chooses Edwin’s gallant offer of a marriage between friends in hopes that it will deter her stalker. She expects nothing more than an amiable union, but their increasingly tempestuous kisses prove more than she bargained for. When her stalker’s vow to expose the lovers’ deepest secrets threatens to destroy their blossoming attraction, will their tenuous bond withstand public ruin, or will Edwin lose all that’s important to him to protect his bride?

This space is dedicated to my favorite book blog posts every week since I don't do weekly recaps (I don't have the patience) and there are always posts that I LOVE!
What are your Monday Musts??


  1. *blushes* Thanks for the mention, Eva! I'm loving the mini review style at the moment. It suits me so much more, I think. And I didn't realise that it was you reviewing on, Nick's blog. Oops! I'll have reread the post.

  2. Another blogger suggested I read this one to get me out of my HR slump. I think I'll go ahead and get it this week. Thanks for the rec!

  3. I will have to check out that guest post!! Love your shout out section - I always find some great posts there!

  4. Great list of blog post mentions! Those are some good ones. :D I've never read a Sabrina Jefferies book, but it looks interesting!

    Thanks as always for linking us, Eva! <3 <3

  6. oh I really liked The Study of Seduction!!! Great blog mentions---I feel so honored you mentioned my place!! Hope you enjoy those cowboys.

  7. After your guest review on Nick's blog, I need that Sabrina Jeffries book! I just need more HR in my life, let's be honest. Yay for more blogs to visit! I'll have to come back later in the week when I'm on my home computer to check them out. My laptop is a pain because some of the keys stick so I constantly have typos. LOL.

  8. I've never really branched out when it comes to HR books I've stuck to stuff I've known and loved (Julia Quinn and Lisa Kleypas) but I hear good things about Sabrina Jeffries so I think I'll add this one to my GR and check it out! And A Tribe Called Quest makes me think of HS! I was obsessed with the song Tennessee back in the day. So sad to hear about Phife. Way, way too soon :(

  9. Love this must see list! So many great posts, especially Shannon's tips for slumps. And oh, Truthwitch, so many feelings about that book. Great post!

Review: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for. Yet while the accusation against the teacher is perhaps more innocent than it seemed at first, the ordinary family turns out to be more complicated. As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; but if she doesn't, their son may die. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extrao…
