Tempted Tigress (Tigress Series, #6): Review

Book: Tempted Tigress

Despite my claims that my preferred reading material of choice is historical romance novels, there has been a vast shortage of that in my reviews. But no more! The dry spell has ended. Come, and be the lucky few to bear witness to this momentous occasion.
