Review: Sharp Love by Ava March

Review: Sharp Love by Ava March

I really enjoyed the first book in this series so I was eager to pick up the sequel.  I got a little surprise when it took place chronologically at the same time as the other story, but with different main characters.  It was refreshing to have the heroes being from the working class poor and the story set in the… Read more »

The story opens when scientist… Read more »

Review: Rush by Nyrae Dawn

New to me author, sports romance, coming of age and coming out tale?  Yeah, I was interested.  I wasn’t sure what to expect, but yet I must have still formed some expectations because this one had a different feel to me and it took a while for me to settle in and get comfortable.  Once that happened, I was right… Read more »

Review: Always a Stranger by Amara Royce

I thought the idea of a book set against the backdrop of the Victorian Great Exhibition involving an English Earl and a Japanese Entertainer at the Exhibit was unique and I wanted to read it.  The story grabbed me from the beginning with the exotic fan dance scene and the mystery of Hana’s circumstances. This one is not listed as… Read more »

Afternoon Delight: Twelfth Night by Deanna Raybourn

I love husband and wife detective teams particularly those set in historical times.  Quite addicted really!  This short novella is from one of my all-time favorite series, Lady Jane Grey, in which married pair Brisbane and Julia work their way through many a dark, gritty story.  This particular installment in the series however, is of the lighter variety.  Like other… Read more »
