L is for Lust!

L is for Lust!

What are your thoughts on lust?  Lust comes in many forms…from a look, to a touch to slamming against a wall banging the door down. When you go looking up the definition is mostly goes in to the non-sexual side of lust as an obsession, but without the lust to fuel the passion of a relationship, it can get quite boring. Who doesn’t like to be slammed up against the wall and be taken with uncontrollable lust of a lover… Read more »

Review: Laying Claim by Paty Jager

Review: Laying Claim by Paty Jager

A romance set against the time of the Klondike Gold Rush Days of Alaska sounded so exciting that I just had to pick it up.  It was an interesting blend of a frontier adventure and romance.  I love all the little details like uproarious mining camps, sled dog journey, cold wilderness survival on the trail, and just life in general during that time. The story opens in 1898 when Clara Bixbee intrepidly sets off alone from Seattle to make her… Read more »

Review: How to Handle a Cowboy by Joanne Kennedy

Review: How to Handle a Cowboy by Joanne Kennedy

Trying to get off my cowboy romance slump I picked up How to Handle a Cowboy by Joanne Kennedy without reading the blurb. At first I was surprised at the premise, but then I jumped in feeling this was going to be a good book. While I enjoyed it, I did get bogged down in what these two felt were dreary lives rather than something to live for. Ridge Cooper’s rodeo cowboy career is over after a bad injury leaves… Read more »

J is for Jocks!

J is for Jocks!

J is for Jocks!  Jocks…those guys that run around in sports making us happy with their jiggly or non-jiggly parts. Taking hits, making the goal, doing the job right. Well, I fell in love with a few jocks in my books over the years.  Mick Riley Mick, oh Mick! I fell in love with Mick and tried to tear him away from Tara early on in this novel. But alas, it was not to be so. Mick is a quarterback… Read more »

Review: Lingerie for Felons by Ros Baxter

Review: Lingerie for Felons by Ros Baxter

Zany, provoking, heartwarming, and at times, heartbreaking all wrapped up in one woman’s story that takes place over several years.  I read the blurb and still I didn’t quite get just want the balance would be in this one so it took me by surprise. This quote from the Amazon.com blurb sums it up I think. Unfortunately, the part I didn’t pay attention about was the part that would have made me normally pass up this book as not really… Read more »

Why I wrote Lingerie for Felons by Ros Baxter

Why I wrote Lingerie for Felons by Ros Baxter

They say your first book is the most autobiographical, but three facts suggest that’s not the case for me with Lingerie for Felons: (1)   I hate maths, and Lola (my feisty mathematician come professional protestor heroine) is kind of partial to it. I burned my maths books after I finished school; she kicks back on holidays with a dog-eared copy of Probably Not: Great Minds of Chance Analysis. (2)   My family is pretty quirky, but at least I managed to… Read more »

I is for Immortal!

I is for Immortal!

I is for Immortal! Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series was my break-through series to Paranormal Romance.  As far as I’m concerned, I lucked out with my initiation there.  Her books are loaded with all races and variety within races of Immortals.  Her Valkyries, Weres, Demons, Vampires, Witches and even those skeevy Wendigos are all just abso-fab.  My ultimate favorite character has been Nix-the-Ever-Knowing since the beginning and I will not consider this series complete unless she gets a story… Read more »
