Review: Night of a Thousand Stars by Deanna Raybourn

Review: Night of a Thousand Stars by Deanna Raybourn

I have truly enjoyed visiting the world of Post-WWI and the 20’s Era particularly as the author has taken the stories from England to Africa to the Holy Lands of the Middle East. So much was happening at that time and yet there was still the age and mystique of those far away places. I have settled into the stories… Read more »

Review: Loving Him Off the Field by Jeanette Murray

Review: Loving Him Off the Field by Jeanette Murray

The Delight A sweet one of the guys report falling for her interviewee kicker on a football team. Throw romance and football together and I am ready to tackle it and score a touch down! Just look at that cover. It makes me want to drool. I can take hair on a man’s chest or not, so this is one… Read more »

Review: Must Love Breeches by Angela Quarles

Review: Must Love Breeches by Angela Quarles

I haven’t read a Time Travel Romance in a long time so it was fun and exciting to get back into it with this modern woman’s historical caper. I was prepared to have a bit of fun, but I was astoundingly surprised by how much more I got out of this story than I was expecting from the historical authenticity… Read more »

Review: The Demon Lover by Juliet Dark

Review: The Demon Lover by Juliet Dark

I was looking for something properly atmospheric and paranormal for a spooky read so I was pleased to death when I cracked open this story that was full of Gothic elements, witches, demons and fairy magic all rolled into one even while giving a nod to old gothic literary tales like Dracula and Jane Eyre. It has the prerequisite chilly… Read more »

Audio Review: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Audio Review: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

I have not really explored the world of audio books before, but a few things made me terribly eager for Outlander, a book that is in my top ten all time favorites, to be the book that changed that status for me. As a result of being an audio book newbie, I’m not even sure what are the salient points… Read more »

Review: Beauty’s Beast by Amanda Ashley

Review: Beauty’s Beast by Amanda Ashley

If it’s a fairytale retelling, I’m there. Love the fairytales, but particularly if it’s Beauty and the Beast. I was prepared for this new to me author to weave some enchantment. And…she did. The atmosphere, the magic, the character portrayals, the doomed romance was all there. This was no weak shadow of the classic story; this was a well conceived… Read more »

Review: Simmer by Deborah Grace Staley

Review: Simmer by Deborah Grace Staley

Okay, I’m going to pack it in. I’m at the 31% mark and I’m still not feeling this story. I take full responsibility and will chalk it up to an ‘it’s me not you’ thing. I don’t feel a strong aversion to this story. I’m just not into it. I was just skimming until bits caught my eye and that’s… Read more »

Review: Promise Me This by Christina Lee #Giveaway

Review: Promise Me This by Christina Lee #Giveaway

Some subjects are so painful and dark- not romantic at all in fact- so it takes a talented writer to weave the two together to create a heartwarming, passionate and hope-filled story that is above all about love. Each book in this series introduces characters that need to heal and find that special someone who is right there to love… Read more »

Review: A Taste for Poison by Aleksandr Voinov #Giveaway

Review: A Taste for Poison by Aleksandr Voinov #Giveaway

With where things paused in the last book, I knew to be prepared for things to pick up speed and intensity right on through the end. And it most certainly did that. If last book was the rollercoaster car climbing to the top of a hill, this book was the car completing the journey down complete with tight loops and… Read more »
