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...

Stars

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

Magnolia Wednesdays

Magnolia Wednesdays is a winner -- brilliant with acerbic, biting wit and yet it's funny without ever descending into being nasty or tasteless. The relationships portrayed could have been lifted out of the lives of everyday people we know,...

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...

Promise Me Tonight - A Weston Novel, book 1

Leda Swann is one of my must-buy authors, but it seems that I just can't get into their latest stories. I don't know if it's a combination of failed suspension of belief, not quite attractive characters, or what. At any rate, the story at h...

Into the Heart 3: Into the Wild

This story was a hot, fun, and thought-provoking romp. I definitely enjoyed the interaction between Lupe, Cristian, and Jeremy. Willows had her description of Lupe spot-on, and it was welcome levity in an otherwise fairly intense story. Alt...

Veriel's Tales II: Losing Regana - Book Two
