Tempted Tigress (Tigress Series, #6): Review

Book: Tempted Tigress
Series: The Tigress, #6

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.

If a book meets that criteria chances are I’ll find something enjoyable in it. Probably the porn, if it’s there. That being said, contemporary romance novels are not usually my thing, as a rule. I mean, read about a ruthless business CEO or a ruthless pirate? The choice isn’t hard, I know.
