I picked this one up because I loved the first book in the series and came back for more. You know? I’m beginning to sense a pattern with these books. These couples don’t make the path to love easy. It’s sassy, sexy, angsty, sad, heartwarming and many other things, but it is sure as shooting not easy. It challenged me to stick with these two people to get their chance at romance and I’m glad I did. Worth it. So… Read more »

I do have to chase one little rabbit here…Thanks to the many who pop… Read more »

Whenever I’m looking for historical romance with a touch of daring and dash on the lighter side, I can count on this author to see me through. It’s been a while since I picked up one of her books and the catchy title and gorgeous jewel-tone cover caught my eye. This was a book that got up to all sorts of high jinks and really can’t be taken seriously as a historical if the reader is to have any enjoyment… Read more »
I was in the mood for a lighter style Urban Fantasy and so I picked up this one off my pile. I enjoy humor in my vampire stories and also creative quirks to the worldbuilding which this one offered. It did its job of amusing me and getting a laugh out of me now and then, but the main character was a bit vacillating for my taste. Glory St. Clair both appealed to me and drove me nuts. She is… Read more »

Ever once in a while, I come across a story that just defies description because of its scope and the emotions it produced in me. When I added this one, I was taken by the title and by the cover and finally by the blurb. I hadn’t heard anything one way or the other, but something told me this would be good stuff. Love it when my instinct proves right. Sempre was not an easy read, but it’s unforgettable. It… Read more »
