A squad of Marines trying out for a boxing team? Who cares about a story! Haha! Just teasing! I do have a review here for real. I enjoyed the author’s previous trio of romances set on a Marine base and was tickled to death that she tackled the double punch of a sports and military romance. The tone is sassy and light, but has sustenance […]

I adored the first book in this series and was eager to pick things up with the sister, Lia’s romance. The small sea side town setting and focus on the sea with the whale watching business was a huge plus. I got a shock when I started reading because I was anticipating something much like I got from the first book in tone, pacing, characters […]

This was an exciting story to begin an action-packed, passionate new romantic suspense series. I’ve listened to the author’s stories before, loved them and was eager to give this series a go. The book leaped out of the gates and stayed strong throughout with an ending that had me deeply satisfied. The story opens with English language teacher, Eryn McClellan, barely escaping death at the […]

I read the blurb and my curiosity was grabbed instantly. A woman is out for her first night at a sex club to explore her submissiveness with a man she really wants to be interested in. Things get interesting when the man’s twin- the man who walked away from her eight years before- ends up being the one to walk into her room and make […]

I found this Pride and Prejudice variation to offer something new and a bit different to the retelling niche. This one begs the question of what happens if a pair of lovers discovers that fate has been cruel enough that they are really brother and sister. Did your jaw hit the floor? Mine did. I just had to keep reading and discover how the author […]

A steampunk romantic suspense set in America’s Deep South sounded all sorts of fun times so I was eager to reach for this book and get started. And what’s a steampunk tale without a daring, independent-minded heroine and a smart, handsome hero to ride at her side? Let’s just say that I didn’t have to find out because this book opening a new thrilling series […]

I’ve wanted to branch out and try some biker romances from new to me authors and series after being cozy with just a few early established favorites for me. I tend to be on the squeamish side so those that are mild to moderate in the biker romance category suit me best. This one sat between those on the scale offering a gritty, dark world, […]

As I started reading this one, I was already in a state of mourning as were most readers I have no doubt. So many books later and I never once soured on this series or lost my sense of anticipation. I honestly had no idea what to expect and I wanted it that way. This is a strong romantic suspense series that cannot be read […]

I’ve enjoyed books by this author twosome before so it was no hardship to reach for this one that begins a new series. The tie-in to Shakespeare was a plus along with the excitement of a relationship between an FBI agent and a con-man. Yep, thought it would be a delightful fun romp, but even I wasn’t prepared for what I got. Ordinary hardworking, grumpy […]

With great anticipation and intrepidation, I opened this book and began reading. I wanted Puck’s story in a bad way after his introduction in Reaper’s Stand. He was a minor character, but he was a scene stealer every time that strong, silent and lethal man was there. The air of menace and capability surrounding him couldn’t be ignored. I wanted his story, but I didn’t […]

I was excited to see this follow-up story for Nick and Daisy that shares what happens after their exciting happily ever after. It answers the question of what happens when a cold-hearted killer falls in love and tries to go straight. This story was laced with humor, sweet moments, red-hot dirty mouthed passion and a few challenges that only a former trained assassin can deal […]
