Her parents smothered her and she doesn’t want to switch one set of prison wardens for another. Bran doesn’t understand her attitude, but bides his time even though his dragon side is impatient for their mate. […]

This series has been enjoyable as a nice change up from fast and furious and lots of drama. It’s so laid back and easy going with its small town setting, group of friends, the dog characters, and their personal barriers to romance. In this book, Bash and Chelsea get their story. Both characters are very familiar secondary characters from the beginning of the series. While […]

On her honeymoon, she goes for a swim, returns to the beach, and finds her husband has vanished and later learns that no one by his name ever existed. Now doesn’t that pull you in? It did me. I was excited to read this standalone romantic suspense set in Australia as a woman and a detective set out to learn the truth. The story opens […]

After enjoying the first two books in the World’s Fair books, I was keen to dive in to this latest one that has ties to the World Fair, but has shifted the setting to New York. The blend of historical backdrop, character building, strong story line and the author’s writing makes this such a fantastic reading experience from cover to cover. The author provides lovely […]

When I got this box set for review, I debated how I was going to do it. There are eighteen full-length stories in the set and for a few reasons it is not possible to review it all at once. Even I can’t do 18 novel-length books in a week, haha! And can you imagine the length of the post? Shari would shoot me for […]

All the elements that sizzled in the first book for me carried forward into this second installation of the series. The first book had the job of introduction to the world of Midnight, Texas and its characters and it was all so unique and quirky that I was curious to see if the author would hold my attention now that everything is established. Not a […]

Atmospheric, deceptively simple, small town at its best, colorful characters, secrets and mysteries abound and this is just the beginning to this new series set in the spooky town of Midnight, Texas. I eagerly picked this one up and devoured it, amazingly. I think it might be a case of right book; right time, but it’s also the fact that I settled in quickly and […]

And so it comes to the end and I find myself sad to say good-bye to the girls and guys of Jane Austen Academy. While at the same time, I was dreadfully eager to get this story. Anne and Rick have both been visible secondary characters from the first book onward and there’s was the heartbreaking situation of being the a couple that had their […]
