Review: When a Laird Takes a Lady by Rowan Keats

Review: When a Laird Takes a Lady by Rowan Keats

I had a penchant for a historical medieval romance and it was just a bonus that it was set in the Highlands of Scotland. I haven’t read this author’s work yet so I eagerly dived right in and got lost in the surprising story because I didn’t realize that I was also getting a strong intrigue element along with a… Read more »

Afternoon Delight: Here in My Heart by Anna DeStefano

When I’m in the mood for something that challenges my emotions with the story of two hurting people that really make the romance a hard fought for thing, Anna DeStefano’s books are some of the ones I grab for. Seriously people. They are not for the faint of heart when it comes to tough romance and broken characters because these… Read more »

Review: Encore by Lori Toland

Review: Encore by Lori Toland

So it came down to this…Jason and Blaze’s story began so sweetly, they weathered some bumps as they entered a real relationship, they weathered some bigger bumps, and then catastrophe struck breaking all they had into smithereens. That’s where things left off. So yeah, eager to read this final book doesn’t quite cover how I felt when I picked it… Read more »

Review: Sweetwater by Lisa Henry #Giveaway

Review: Sweetwater by Lisa Henry #Giveaway

A soulful, gritty western romance that pulled me in and wouldn’t let me go until well past the moment I closed the cover. This was a magnificent blend of historical authenticity, deep characterization and solid plotwork offering so much more than I ever could have imagined when I started the story. The main character, Elijah Carter is this young man… Read more »

Yours Affectionately: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Yours Affectionately: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

At the conclusion of Cinder, I was left with my mouth agape because of the big reveals. That book packed quite a bit of punch and I was leery of picking up the sequel to see if the author could sustain what she started. To be brief, the sequel didn’t hit with the same power of the first book, but… Read more »

Review: Wickedly Dangerous by Deborah Blake

Review: Wickedly Dangerous by Deborah Blake

When an author takes a lesser known mythology and brings it into modern times giving it her own splash of personality, I am always eager to grab up the story to see where it will take me. Deborah Blake breathed new life into the Baba Yaga tale giving us a lush, exciting book world to get lost in. “It’s not… Read more »

Review: Taste of Darkness by Katie Reus

Review: Taste of Darkness by Katie Reus

Dragons! That was the only thing I needed to know about this sequel story with the dragon shifter, Drake, and the wolf shifter, Victoria, as the lead characters. I love how this series blends the paranormal romance with some suspense. This second story wasn’t as intense as the first one and took more time with the character development, but it… Read more »

Review: In Want of a Wife by Jo Goodman

Review: In Want of a Wife by Jo Goodman

Title totally grabbed me on this Western Historical Romance. New to me author, western backdrop, and mail order bride trope were just thick layers of icing on this already tantalizing fictional cake. This was the third book in a series, but I was able to jump right in and read it no problem though after meeting several of the town… Read more »

Review: In Bed With a Rogue by Samantha Grace

Review: In Bed With a Rogue by Samantha Grace

This was one of my ‘try a new to me author’ grabs and again, I got lucky with an engaging, passionate and well written story that was more than I hope for. I did manage to get a sequel that probably would have been even better if I’d gotten it in the order of the series. Oh well, now I… Read more »

To Be or Not to Be…Read

To Be or Not to Be…Read

I have hit upon a new idea (read that as gimmick) to work on my hellaciously high TBR pile. Part of my TBR pile-o-phobia is to actually settle upon a choice so I have decided to elicit your assistance in this matter. Each month, I will post up a pair (or more) of books. I would like you to vote… Read more »

Review: Dreams of Perfection by Rebecca Heflin

Review: Dreams of Perfection by Rebecca Heflin

I love a friends-to-lovers romance so I was more than agreeable when I was asked to read this one. It wasn’t too many pages in when I cracked up recognizing yet something else that I love. Baseball, Jane Austen and the Boy Next Door Charming Hero, it’s a dream come true. It might have been my imagination- probably because I… Read more »
