September 2020 Reading Wrap-Up

Hiya friends! Presenting to you a wrap-up for the books I read in September 2020. I read 9 books this month comprising a variety of genres.

Although September was not as good as August, I still read some great books.

Without further ado, let’s dive into the recap.

Monthly Wrap-Up: September 2020

Wolf Gone Wild by Juliette Cross

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Mateo hasn’t been able to shift for the last three months. Consequently, his wolf has “taken residence in his mind” continuously taunting him and driving him crazy with suggestions of fighting every guy that looks him in the face or taking to bed any girl who flirts with him. He is just one step short of going crazy. Evie, on the other hand, is a Savoie – a family of powerful witches. Their coven has a strict rule – no werewolves. Why? Because they are temperamental. So, when Mateo comes begging at her door, will Evie refuse him?

Juliette Cross’s Wolf Gone Wild is a delectable combination of werewolves and witches to produce a fantastic paranormal romance. You can read the full review here.

It is 1653, two years since the English Civil Wars came to an end. Lady Jane Tremayne has inherited the estate of her late husband. When a young woman living in her estate is raped, as Lady of the Manor, she decides to investigate, assisted by her dear friend, Olivia. Matters come to a head when a second woman is ravished. Will Jane catch the culprit in time? Or will the brute strike again?

Set against the backdrop of the English Civil Wars, Ravishment by James Walker is a seventeenth-century whodunnit that is perfect for armchair detectives to while away a lazy afternoon.
