It's Monday, What Are you Reading? (#77)

It's Monday, What are you reading? is a weekly event hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books to list the books completed last week, the books currently being read and the books to be finished this week.

Though this past week was busy at work I have found some wonderful books which kept me up until 2 am every night, so I'm tired but happy with these lovely stories I read. Here are the books I got to read this week:

Books I completed 

I love Elyse Mady's books (Learning Curves was a favourite of mine), so I was excited to read a historical romance by her. Though The White Swan Affair has a strong romantic storyline other characters/plotlines get also quite a focal role, so expect about 60% romance. A great story, very well written, just don't expect it to be all about the romance.

In this story Laura Kaye brough us such a tortured and emotionally scarred hero my heart went out to him. Marco was a wonderful and so memorable character he lived in me long after the story was over. My detailed review will be posted soon.

And another Entangled Indulgence title which swept me off my feet! I loved it, and I'm addicted to Entangled Publishing's new imprint! :-D (J. Lynn is the adult title penname of Jennifer L. Armentrout)

A very nice Regency historical romance with marriage of convenience/forced marriage trope (my favourite!). The more time has gone by since I finished it the more I feel like I want to it right away! :-) My detailed review will be posted soon.

Book I'm currently reading

I'm reading a wonderful Pride and Prejudice fanfiction called The Muse by Jessi, it is a favourite of mine, I have been reading and re-reading it for the past 5 or so years. It is a modern alternate universe P&P storyset in the world of a NY ballet company. Darcy is a brooding aloof choreographer while Lizzie and Jane, Charlotte and Caroline are ballet dancers. I love it so much I get the need to re-read every couple months :-) A truly excellent retelling, I urge you to read it! 

Book I can't wait to start

I loved Tiffany Allee's debut novel Banshee Charmer and can't wait to read the second book in the series!

And what are you reading this week?
