Book Releases and Reviews June 28, 2022

It’s time for June 28 book releases. This week we’ve reviewed a Victorian romance, a supernatural romance, and a nonfiction book about creating gender equality in the home.

A Matter of Temptation by Stacey Reid


After a failed elopement destroyed Mina’s reputation, she’s stayed in her brother Anthony’s country residence. When their lack of funds cause Anthony to duel Earl Crestwick, Mina takes his place and finds that the Earl isn’t who she expected.

I loved all the politics in the book and thought it was a very fun read.

The Dead Romantics by Ashely Poston


A cute supernatural romance novel about a struggling ghostwriter returning home for her father’s funeral and finding that her new (all too handsome) editor has come to her as a ghost. It dragged on a bit at times, particularly the beginning and ending, but once I got into the story I really enjoyed it.

Equal Partners by Kate Mangino


This is a fascinating book about what gender equality in the home looks like, and how it can be achieved. It’s aimed at both those who are looking to find gender parity in the home and those who would like to help those around them achieve gender parity. It’s full of practices you can try to figure out what your values are and what gender equality would look like in your relationship and your home.

American Royalty by Tracey Livesay, Up All Night with a Good Duke by Amy Rose Bennett, The Scent of Burnt Flowers by Blitz Bazawule, Godslayers by Zoe Hana Mikuta are some of the other June 28 book releases that we cannot wait to read.

Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for the ARCs of these books for review.
