Hi, there! LAST THURSDAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS, OMG! *–* We are almost there, I can’t wait to be with my family and wake up with my presents on the foot of my bed!
Anyway, it’s Authors from my Heart ❤ day, book author week!
The chosen one was Sally MacKenzie, a sugared historical romances author!
We met in the end of last year, on October, when I downloaded one of her books from free at iBooks. It was The Duchess of Love, prequel to the homonymous series. I enjoyed myself immensely reading it and convinced my dad to purchase me the whole series.
After finish that, I knew I loved her and bought myself a bunch with the whole series of Naked Nobility, books 1 to 7 minus short stories (which I still have to buy, ugh). The first book is brilliant and one of my favorite sugared historical romances ever, but I acquired a serious problem with Sally. Can you believe that 99% on her villains on this series are gay men?! I mean, come on! This got old fast! I’m not saying that you need to be supportive of their cause, but you don’t have to turn them into villains. And it wasn’t just a coincidence. In the stories, you could see that Sally hinted that the villains’ sick personality was due their sexual orientation.
[gif de bullshit]
Sally, I still love you, but just stop.
Anyway, she has only three published series so far: Duchess of Love, Naked Nobility and Spinster House. I’ve read one and three quarters out of three, haha! I guess I can call myself a fan despite our differences 😀
Now, let’s talk about her works:
This was my first series and it is a 5 stars one, without doubts. Really well written, with wonderful characters and twisted plots, I couldn’t stop reading, haha! By the way, I talked a little about the last book in this post 🙂
This series for me was like a graphic: my evaluations kept changing from book to book, from five to two stars, haha! I’m going to make a list here, as we are talking about so many titles:
The Naked Duke (NN #1): 5 stars (cof and my personal favorite of this series cof)
The Naked Baron (NN #2): 4 stars
The Naked Laird (NN #2.5): to-read, oops! Haha 😉
The Naked Marquis (NN #3): 3 stars
The Naked Earl (NN #4): 3 stars
The Naked Viscount (NN #5): 5 stars!
The Naked Gentleman (NN #6): 2 stars…
The Naked Prince (NN #6.5): to-read too, oops!
The Naked King (NN #7): 5 stars!
I’m sorry I don’t have reviews for any of those books, truly. Maybe next year I’ll re-read them ❤
That’s it! Thanks for reading ❤ Do you like sugared historical romances? Someone else here is a fan of Sally MacKenzie? o/
