I've been waiting for a full length novel story of the Order of Solace and this one definitely didn't disappoint. If anything, now I want more set in the same world. Annalise is a charismatic woman -- her intelligence, cynicism, and joy for...

Engaging Gren - Book three in the Life in the Vrail Series

Marie Harte paints a vivid and exciting world in her Vrail series and this installation doesn't disappoint. Although Temis rubbed me the wrong way with her initial scene interacting with Gren, she quickly proves that she's not as impulsive...

Divine Redemption

Divine Redemption was a short, hot read. If seen from a perspective of simple entertainment, it definitely hit the spot. The premise was interesting and the characters appealing. However, perhaps it was a short story, I found that Strong di...

The Accidental Wedding - The fourth Devil Riders story

Anne Gracie does it again: The Accidental Wedding is funny, charming, and completely endearing. Althought some might think the premise a bit too old, it's a mark of Gracie's skill that she captured my interest from the very first page and k...

Mad, Bad & Dangerous

Snarky, spicy, and laugh-out-loud entertaining -- novels are where Cat Marsters really shines. Kett is prickly, but lovable. I fell for her from the very first page with her caustic comments hiding that vulnerable marshmallow inside. Marste...

Solstice Heat - The Magic Seasons series, #2

Solstice Heat was a easy, quick, and entertaining read. A note of warning, however: This is the second book in the series and it doesn't stand-alone well. There are eight characters that feature prominently in the story and at times their p...

Magmon's Hunger

This story was a fun read, with an interesting premise, charismatic characters, and steamy hot scenes. I enjoyed how the story followed Karliss' life from birth until he meets Diama, sucessfully painting him as a real man with his own vulne...

Hayashi's Hero - Dawn Endeavor 2

Morgan and Kisho's story is action-packed, dynamic story that somehow still manages to be both tender and romantic at the same time. Harte does an amazing job of weaving Kisho's insecurities about love, his homosexuality, and his feelings o...

Crush On You - Three Kisses Series, Book 1

Fun, moving, and filled with the good sort of nail-biting anxiety -- this new series by Christie Ridgway is something to look out for. From the first fiery meeting between Alessandra and Penn, I couldn't help but be drawn into the world of...

Stars

Pathfinder - Ariane Kedros Series, Book 3

Reeve penned a striking story in Pathfinder. Although I found the story hard to follow at times because I somehow missed the memo that this was the third in a series -- Ariane was still an interesting, likable character and the story was de...

Bonds of Justice - Psy/Changelings, #8

Bonds of Justice is a stunning new addition to the Psy-Changeling series. In fact, Singh takes the series in new directions that I had not foreseen, even after reading all of the previous books, and that gives me immeasurable joy. Sophia an...

Silver Borne - Mercy Thompson Series #5

The Mercy Thompson series only seems to pick up the further we travel with Mercy -- no unreasonable hijinks or mysteriously appearing admirers to falsely boost the heat. One thing that I truly appreciate about Briggs is that so far, what's...

Bearing Armen - Book Three

This is a collection of stories about the Night Warriors -- as such I'll be reviewing each short story. Overall, this book is a sweet and fast read. The short stories are just the right length to pick it up for a short time without feeling...

Spinner

This was a fun and engaging story. Dehlia is interesting and I like how she's smart about using her powers in innovative ways. However, I would have liked a ton more back-story. The world isn't quite fleshed out: I perpetually felt like I w...

Hael's Fury

I really enjoyed this story. It was a short, sweet read with just enough suspense and action to keep things hopping without detracting from the romance. I do think, however, that Viola Grace should perhaps considering branching out into lon...

The Warder's Unicorn

This was another light-hearted, slightly naughty story by Viola Grace. I definitely enjoyed the interaction between Malksis and Seph -- too bad that it was cut short and another story was stuck into the middle of their romance. It almost fe...

The Druid's Captive

I found it hard to get through this story without wanting to flip ahead to see what would happen. Mostly because the story itself felt over-written, every point belabored, and way too much time spent on describing things that didn't seem to...

Healer

I really enjoyed this story. The first sentence drew me in and it just got better from there. I thought that Evah's ability was very interesting in that she not only absorbs the pain of her patient, but it also reflects on her body. I thoug...

Running Wyld - The Sector Guard - Book 2

Running Wyld is an interesting, short, and sweet story, it does suffer from a few plot holes. I really enjoyed Aggie -- I would have loved to have had more detail about her childhood, her family, and the short reference to how her body woul...

The Warder's Elf - The Warders # 7

I've been curious about Alora's fate ever since I read the previous story in the series, but I have to admit that this was a bit of a let down. There were far more questions left unanswered than there were answered, and that definitely impa...

The Search

Touching, suspenseful, with just the right amount of good humor running throughout -- The Search enticed me into its world from the very first page and didn't let me surface until the very end.  This story hit all the main buttons for...

Enemy Lover

Despite the somewhat generic name, Enemy Lover turned out to be a fast-paced, well-written, exciting read. I'd suggest that the next cover title have a little more oomph, because I couldn't help but wonder how many people will just gloss ov...

A Lost Wife's Tale

 A Lost Wife's tale alternately leaves me entranced and beguiled by Marion McGilvary's wry, edged prose and bewildered by all the shenanigans going on. Dry, funny, and well-turned on the lathe of sarcastic wit, the story swept me up an...

WWW : Watch - The second book in the WWW trilogy that began with Wake ...

Brilliant, clever, and emotionally engaging -- Watch is definitely a book worth picking up.  I appreciated how Sawyer used science that is current today, twisted it a bit, and gave it believable life in the form of Webmind. Although th...

Antonello Brothers 1: At the Mercy of Her Pleasure

This story was hot, fun, and kept me on the edge of my seat waiting for what happens next. However, I just need to say something: "More information please!" Action packed romance with a bit of life threatening danger thrown in and...

The Guise of a Gentleman - [The Rogue Hearts Series]

The Guise of a Gentleman may have landed Donna Hatch straight on my bookshelf of authors to keep an eye on. This story was both tender, amusing, and full of suspense at the same time. From the very first, when Elise and Jared meet in that s...

Queen's Surrender

Frankly, I didn't enjoy this story. It seemed like an endless string of cliches strung together with a Mary Sue-ish character with neither reasonable motives for her actions nor a believable backstory.  Sumatra's character is not at al...

A Spanking for Valentine

As per usual, Evangeline Anderson takes no prisoners in this steamy short. Valentine and Shane jump straight into action, almost from the first page, and it was entertaining to watch their interactions and perception of each other shift and...

Reflections of a Stranger

I thought this story had an interesting premise, but I'm not sure about the execution. Annica, for someone who walked through the mirror into the future, seemed to be far too calm and accepting of what went on. It didn't quite make sense fo...

Uncertain Magic - A re-issue, originally published in 1987

Laura Kinsale never fails to deliver -- from the very first moment Roddy and Faelan meet, I couldn't help but be swept into their world. Kinsale has a talent for bringing her tale to life, from the realistic details of how Roddy's gift affe...

Treasure Keeper - Drakon

Zoe is a lovely heroine and her interactions with Rhys are a pleasure to read about. However, it was never quite made clear why Rhys gave up on her so quickly and seemingly so thoroughly. That little altercation between her sister led to he...

Rampant

To be perfectly honest, I was a bit leery of yet another book premised on "mysterious fits of lust" -- but I've been looking forward to a full length novel by Saskia Walker for a while and I didn't want to pass this up. Good thing...

City of Night - The House War, #2

As usual, Michelle West pulls no punches. Picking up from where The Hidden City left off, West tosses the reader into a world that is epic in its length and breadth. She shows us the depths of human depravity on one page and on the next rev...

Palace of Dreams

In Palace of Dreams , Kathleen Coddington blends together the prosaic with the fantastical, the mundane with the preternatural. Much as Inari's powers may set her apart, she never came across as anything less than real because of her very r...

The Notebooks of Madame B : The Seduction - Book 1

Hot, steamy, and often unexpected, the notebooks of Madame B aren't to be missed. All of the stories are short enough to be a quick, easy read -- perfect of commutes or when that line is just a wee bit long. Despite being short, each story...

The Notebooks of Madame B : Ecstasy - Book 3

Poison, Lies, and No-Win Choices

Although this is a really short read, it answers all of the questions that were left after reading Bride Ball -- unfortunately, it also means that it's not as good of a stand-alone read. Not that Lyons's usual tight prose and steamy hot plo...

Four Seasons Autumn 2009

I always find anthologies pretty hard to rate, and this one is no exception. I did enjoy most of the stories, although some much more than the others. A Hallowed Tale was a fun spin-off from the classic "A Christmas Carol" and I r...
