Changing The World - All - New Tales of Valdemar - Sixteen of today's hottest fantasy authors-including Tanya Huff, Mickey Zucker Reichert, Fiona Patton, and Judith Tarr-visit the world of Valdemar

This was a great anthology with many different takes on Valdemar from many good authors. To a certain extent, I think that the reader would enjoy this anthology more if they had read the one preceding this because there are many familiar fa...

Temptation

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...

Taming a Raven

Taming a Raven puts Kathleen Lash on my list of authors to be taken note of. I enjoyed the futuristic setting, the novel concept of "ravens", and the very amusing, very entertaining relationship between Reina and Gage. There were...

Veriel's Tales II: Losing Regana - Book Two

I am undecided about this collection of stories. It is well-written, dynamic, mesmerizing, and thought-provoking -- but I can't decide if I like the final outcome or not and perhaps that is the true art in this collection. To a certain exte...

Slave to Passion

Slave to Passion was a very short and hot read. Coulter-Smith jumps right into the action and these 20 pages were certainly sizzling from the get-go.   However, I have to admit that this story left me a bit cold because of the slave tr...

As Above, So Below

I enjoyed the premise of the story: the idea of the Lord's and the world that Mirabel was born into and all the existential, philosophical bits were massively entertaining. Although, I did often wish that Pita had gone into a little more de...

Bound Odyssey

Michelle Polaris brought this world to life from the very first page and kept me spell-bound until the very last sentence. Her depiction of a post-apocalyptic is careful, gritty, and all too believable -- it definitely sets a compelling sta...

Stars

The Right Men for the Job

This is a hot, steamy short that gives a good taste of just how good Saskia Walker can be. The entire story is tight, fast-paced, and yet definitely doesn't leave any loose ends hanging. From the moment Astrid walks into Deacon and Vico's l...

A Tapestry of Spells - A Novel of the Nine Kingdoms

I almost invariably enjoy Lynn Kurland's stories, and this one is no exception. Although, it should be noted that this book is not a sequel to Morgan and Miach's stories as much I wished this to be a continuation of Morgan and Miach's adven...

Scoundrel's Kiss

Deeply flawed and yet struggling for redemption, in their own ways, Gavriel and Ada's story is heartbreaking and breathtaking. Ada's addiction is described with careful detail, her lack of control and how far she's fallen give to us with no...

A Lady of Persuasion - Book 3

Tessa Dare's stories just get better and better. I've been following her since Goddess of the Hunt and I think Lady of Persuasion just might be her best work to date.  I don't usually like revenge stories -- I like my love stories with...

The Man in the Black Leather Mask

This was a sizzling hot short by Evangeline Anderson that showcases her at her best. Jax's relationship with Ryan was a joy to read -- I really liked their banter, the flirting, and their gradual exploration of their love and sexuality. The...

Tempting the Darkness - Darkness Series, Book 5

Note: This book is not stand-alone and cannot really be read without reading the previous books. Much of the plot of this book hinges upon reading what happened previously.  Considering that this is the fifth book in the series, I thou...

A Modern Day Witch Hunt

I found it very hard to get through this book -- Plot aside, the writing was overdone, wordy, and at times pretentious. The sentences were almost always awkwardly constructed so that it seemed like the book was overrun with run-on sentences...

Unmasking Dorian

Very realistic and sweetly done.  Note: For those on the fence about them meeting online, I did have a brief moment of "omg it's cyber/phone sex", but it was less awkward and nervous giggle inducing than might be expected and...

Unleashed

Sizzling hot shorts -- perfect for a quick pick-me-up or just something to read in line. This collection of shorts give a great tantalizing peek into what Saskia Walker has to offer and the many different kinds of situations and plots are s...

Heart's Blood - Whistling Tor Series, Book 1

Heartbreaking and brilliant -- I loved Heart's Blood. Julliet Marillier is in rare form in Heart's Blood. The plot moves along at a quick clip, events unfolding gradually to reveal all facets of the story, but the story itself never seems r...

Gwenhwyfar - The White Spirit (a Novel of King Arthur)

I should preface this review with the statement that I usually dislike Arthurian stories a great deal. After all, by this point it's been done ad nauseum, and all the various permutations of who is good versus bad seems to have been pretty...

No Greater Pleasure - An Order of Solace Novel

Readers are to be warned, this story is highly reminiscent of Jane Eyre. The crotchety master, the insane wife who is not quite so carefully hidden in this version, and the fire all bring that very clearly to mind. That said, I did think th...

Stars

Wishful Thinking

Wishful Thinking was a short and very sweet read. Just the sort of thing a woman needs when it's been a bad day and all she wants is some tender, vanilla loving. Mia was a total sweetheart and I really liked how the story progressed through...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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

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...

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...

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...

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...
