I have updated my review and giveaway policies page (now just titled Policies above). If you are entering a giveaway, please read and abide by the applicable policy.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

The Royal Mistress Challenge Complete

I completed another challenge – this time The Royal Mistress Challenge hosted by The Misadventures of Moppet . You can still sneak into this challenge as it runs until December 31, 2010.

I immediately was drawn to this challenge because I had several books on my shelf that met the requirements of this challenge – and I didn’t really get to any of those – all of the ones I read for the challenge were received after January 1, 2010 for review. Oops, I will get to those on my shelf at some point (especially because now I love Susan Holloway Scott’s books).

The abbreviated rules are as follows (you can find the finer points on the blog):

1) The main character must be a real mistress (not a fictional one)
2) Books can be re-reads and/or overlap with other challenges
3) You can choose your level and change at any time

I chose the Maid of Honour level – Read up to three books – because I thought it was a manageable level – I don’t think I would have finished any more this year.

Here are the links to my reviews:

1. Royal Harlot by Susan Holloway Scott
2. The Countess and the King by Susan Holloway Scott
3. For the King's Favor by Elizabeth Chadwick

  1. Congrats on finishing! I just adored Royal Harlot -- I don't think I liked Barbara but boy, did I get her, and I so felt for her. By the end, I was wholly in her court -- so much so, I was reluctant to read any of Ms Scott's other novels for fear I would dislike them for not being Babs! ;)

  2. Audra - the two of hers that I read so far have both been wonderful.


Thanks for leaving your comments! I love reading them and try to reply to all!
