Animals

I can't say that I love this book -- but it was entertaining and would make for a decent companion on a long trip. The premise started out interesting and I was looking forward to some hot action with perhaps a bit of action and suspense th...

Scorcher

I couldn't see the "romance" in this short story, and to a certain extent couldn't identify with any of the characters.  The entire story is very short, and a good portion of that seemed to just be Pheobe and Brant having a l...

To Catch a Bride - The third in the Devil Riders series, Rafe's story

This book is definitely going on my keeper shelf!  I've been waiting for Rafe's story for quite some time and Anne Gracie does not disappoint -- there's not only her characteristic deft touch with unwrapping people that are real and se...

Three Wishes - Urban Grimms collection #2

I really enjoyed this take on fairy tales -- it was lots of fun mixed up with a healthy dose of fantasy-meets-reality. The great uncles/ godfathers were hysterically funny, especially as seen from the reader's point of view where it's clear...

Changing Focus - Book 3 in the Lusting Wild series.

This was a good read -- I enjoyed how Micah courted Liv and showed her how to be a wolf, and those sections where he was introducing her to werewolf society and rules were some of the best parts of the story. Mostly because it was very real...

Stars

Spider-Touched - Book 2

Jory Strong does not disappoint with a strong new novel in this paranormal series. I really do enjoy seeing how she's rendering the age-old conflict between the angels, the demons, and everything else that goes bump in the night. To a certa...

Stars

Ice Land

Betsy Tobin does a great job in twisting together mythology, magic, and legend with the very real pathos of humanity and history. Her characters are not unbelievable although the setting is definitely not entirely of this world and magic is...

Stars

Black Silk

Convoluted, demented, and an incredibly serpentine plotline --  Judith Ivory has created a breathtakingly engaging book. I picked this book up and just couldn't put it down. Submit is the perfect foil to Graham -- the most enchantingly...

Stars

Quatrain

If you've never read any books by Sharon Shinn -- this is a great place to start. These four stories each touch on one of the beloved series and really work well at giving a taste of what the world is like, what difficulties the protagonist...

Greetings from Somewhere Else

Greetings from Somewhere Else is vivid, enchanting, and a desperately funny read. Lainey Byrne is the heroine that you love to hate. Who doesn't know someone like that? Bossy, controlling, ever so sure she's doing what's best and most effic...

Keeping Paige - The third Divinity Warriors book, set in the Divinity Universe.

Keeping Paige wasn't a bad read, but I felt that there was little to no real romancing in the story.  It seemed that Paige and Aidan just sort of rolled into bed together, and then Paige started wanting to run whilst Aidan was playing...

Laid Bare

Laid Bare was hot, exciting, and almost managed to keep me on my seat the entire time. I thought that Erin's story was tastefully rendered -- between her wild girl persona and the hurt woman, I definitely felt that there was a lot of charac...

Stars

Goddess of the Hunt - Book 1

Goddess of the Hunt is a fast, entertaining, and enchanting read. I've always had a bit of a soft spot for the brother's best friend concept, and Tessa Dare doesn't disappoint with this amusing rendition. She strikes just the right note wit...

Stars

Surrender of a Siren : A Novel - Book 2

I truly enjoyed Surrender of a Siren. You get swashbuckling adventure galore and delightfully, deliciously flawed characters throughout. The story was dramatic, poignant, and heartbreaking at times, but Tessa Dare never took the easy way ou...

Pleasure and Purpose

Megan Hart's talent for bringing pathos to life is exquisitely manifest in these short stories – one cannot help but be drawn into the pain and conflict at the center of these stories – that and the redemption offered in love. S...

Sweet Dreams

Sweet Dreams was a hot and sweet read. Characterization and tone were spot on -- Evangeline Anderson really knows how to suck a reader in and not let go until the very end.  That said, I've noticed that the forbidden love angle between...

Wynd Temptress

Wynd Temptress was a quick and enjoyable read. I have to say though; I'm getting a bit tired of the telepathic soul mate stuff. It isn't usually a problem, but when Adam easily solves the case of trying to figure out if she's a threat or no...

The Price of Submission

The Price of Passion has the perfect blend of romance, hot sex scenes and a tender love story.  I really enjoyed the story of how Misty was trained to be a submissive -- especially how the story didn't show her just jumping into the sc...

Dragon's Blood - Book One in the Cruentus Dragons series

I really enjoyed this story. It was fast paced, exciting, with enough romance thrown in to make it the perfect bedtime read.  However, I'm getting just a bit tired of the whole "I will die terribly or suffer horribly without my ma...

Monsoon Fever

Plot? There was none.   I realize that this was a short story for an anthology, but that doesn't really excuse any of the problems that I saw.  Asides from my previous complaint that there was no real plot, I was also really put o...

Snow White and the Seven Hunks

Interesting idea, but I felt like it flopped.   The sex could have been interesting, but I really felt that a lot of the sex was lackluster and I was really distracted by the incessant whining about how "small" Nicole was. Th...

Submission

This is a short and rather interesting read. I feel that the story could have been much better if it had been longer and the author had worked things out a bit more. It felt like an interesting idea, so I'm not writing her off just yet. Bes...

The Craft Of The Wise 3: Rule Of Three

I felt that the so-called plot of this story took a back seat to the sex scenes -- which really detracted from this short story. It's perfectly allright to write some mindless sex, but to a certain extent I was expecting a real story and pl...

McAlistair's Fortune - Book 3

In some ways, this book was yet another high-spirited heroine escaping the bounds of society to find the man of her dreams, much to her surprise, and marrying him.  Fine.  We could all see that coming from a mile away and all the...

Alien Penetration

I was a bit disappointed by this latest story. I have been following Kaitlyn O'Connor's stories for years now, and her books have only gotten better -- but this one seems to be somewhat of a fluke.   Not to say that it wasn't diverting...

The Promise

Although there are many black moments in “The promise”, the vibrant personalities of Gunter and Alonsa shone brilliantly regardless. The story itself is passionate, enchanting, and moving. Not that it is without its moments of l...

Sugar Queen

The sugar queen is a wonderful story. It has magic, realism and enough human pathos to keep it real. I especially loved how Della Lee just appeared in Josey's closet. That just hooked me. The rest just kept me on the edge of my seat waiting...

WWW : Wake - Book 1

WWW:Wake is a gripping story with a novel premise and almost flawless execution. I would have loved if the story had gone on past where Caitlin realizes just who exactly she is talking to. There is just the right amount of facts to keep thi...

A Hint of Wicked

To a certain extent, my review is influenced by my expectation that Sophie would end up with both men. I felt bitterly let down by the ending, which was utterly unexpected, to a certain extent. Then, also, I thought that this could have bee...

Alpha Female

Alpha Female is a tightly-woven, fast paced story that kept me flipping through the book at breakneck speed to see just how things would pan out.   Annie and Will are extremely charismatic characters and their story doesn't take a back...

Relentless - Federation Chronicles Book 2

Fiery, erotic, and rich with plot, this book is definitely a keeper on my shelf. Lauren Dane successfully pulls off the plot, which could have seemed strained and contrived without a deft hand with detail. I did find it somewhat too pat tha...

Fire Raiser - TOR Hardback

Fire Raiser was definitely a keep you on the edge of your seat book. I rushed through it all in one sitting just to see what would happen next.   Some quibbles I have is that I felt that for a person who hasn't read Spellbinder, this c...

Till There Was You

This is a story that alternately made me cry, laugh, and cry again. I thoroughly enjoyed Mary's fire, her relationship with all her cousins, and her love with Zachary. It was such a bittersweet courtship, and it was so moving to see all tha...

White Star - 336pp

I enjoyed this book, I really did, but I have some problems with it that nearly made me regret picking it up. First of all – the description on the back of the book. Really, can we dispense with the woman of ultimate purity, kindness,...

Bad Boy

I couldn't really get into this story. First of all, it seemed that the journalist heroine was too stupid to live – she kept putting herself in danger without really realizing just how stupid she was being and refusing to face up to h...

The Hidden City - The House War, #1

Michelle West weaves a gripping tale with charismatic characters, an intricate plot, and plenty of drama and suspense. I never quite knew what would happen next and the characters were complex and often surprised me. Something to keep in mi...

Sins of a Wicked Duke

Sins of a Wicked Duke is a delightful book. I loved Fallon's grit, spunk, and her innovative idea of setting herself up as a man. I especially enjoyed her interactions with Dominic, as a footman, and as a maid. I did think the sudden twist...

Living with Ghosts

Living with Ghosts was a lovely book. I adored the premise, the characters, the twisty plot, the city, all of it. There was just enough politics to raise this above the usual alternate/psuedo historical novel, just a hint of love to fulfill...

Tempting Fate - 320pp

Alissa Johnson strikes the perfect tone between romantic humor, suspense, drama, and just good old-fashioned hijinks between two charismatic characters. One does somewhat wonder that they didn't see what was in front of their noses all this...

Gorgeous as Sin

I mostly enjoyed this story, the heroine had a mind of her own and knew how to use it, and the plot was gripping to begin with. There were some definite points where it seemed that Rosalind used language that belonged more in 2008 than back...

Tall, Dark and Deadly - Book 1

This book had an interesting premise, but I just couldn't get into the story. The incessant descriptions about how desirable Grace was often pulled me out of the plot and back into reality. Also, it just seemed that Justin behaved in a very...

This was a truly enjoyable book. Not only was the friendship between the women lovely to read about, I also enjoyed the insight into the eyes of an author's woes. Fascinating to read about what these four women wrote about and how who they...

The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters, Vol. 2 - Reprint

I couldn't get into this story. Perhaps it was because I started reading from the second volume and there was back-story that was necessary to understand it better, but I found it a difficult read and barely managed to partially slog my way...

The Seduction of a Duke

The Seduction of a Duke was a lighthearted, fun read, and definitely enjoyable.   However, I felt that the conflicts were just a bit too manufactured. How odd that Fran would have been able to just forget about the person she claimed t...

Captive

I usually enjoy Leda Swann's books greatly, for they are adept at combining deft wit, courage, and eroticism. Unfortunately, I didn't like “Captive” as much as I did the previous stories. Although Leda Swann did a good job with...
