Lovestruck

I haven't read many F/F contemporary romances so my perception of a F/F novel is undiluted and fresh. On that note, reading a F/F (as a straight women) was a tiny bit shocking, and a very sensual experience. Ms. Grant easily draws the reade...

Mistwood

I am not going to lie, this book got a bit confusing at times. It was very difficult to step into Isabel's shoes because of the whole "I am shifter" deal. The imagery is very beautiful though, and the author does an amazing job at conveying...

Lily of the Nile - A Novel of Cleopatra's Daughter, #1

I adored this new historical YA by Stephanie Dray. She takes the era of Cleopatra from dusty old roman tomes to a world full of intrigue and sensation that anyone can read, understand, and digest. Ms. Dray has the ability to pull you into a...

Tempestuous - Book 3

This book is an excellent ending to a faery trilogy. The author created such rich and vibrant characters, and then released them to the whims and whiles of the faery realm, and NYC...which can be equally treacherous and beautiful at the sam...

Dangerous Angels - The Weetzie Bat Books

This a collection of stories called 'The Weezie Bat Books' that was first released in the late 80's early 90's and now re-released in one book, with a gorgeous cover. I assumed the ultimate goal of these stories was to raise awareness in yo...

Shadow Chase - Shadowchasers, Book 2

This book draws the reader back into the Shadowchaser world with Kira in the lead, well, Kira and a dark Nubian warrior. I love the concept of this book and the world but I think some things get lost in the execution of the writing or at le...

Petals and Thorns

Petals and Thorns is a nicely and tastefully executed erotic version of Beauty and the Beast. I really really enjoyed it. I think the edge from the BDSM elements juxtaposed with the 'innocence' of the fairy tale is what truly makes this sto...

Romancing Miss Bronte

I am completely conflicted about this book. The imagery and emotions the author instilled in her characters are simply amazing. I felt emotions like sadness, longing and need, all of them the characters and not my own. This book touched the...

Brighid's Quest - Age: 13 and Older / Not Suitable for Younger Readers

This book in the Parthanon series felt very different than the rest of the series for some reason. It was sort of slow and it jammed all the action in the last tiny bit. Ms. Cast stays true to totally and brutally exposing her characters to...

Wayfarer - Grades 7 and Up / Ages: 12 and Up

This book did not have the impact I expected it to have. I think it is for the younger young adult audience. The story has wonderful characters and great scene building but it did not have the spark that makes me sit on the edge of my seat...

Divine by Blood

This story is another great edition to ‘The Divine Series’ by P.C. Cast. I loved that this book gave you a bit more edge here and there than the first two did. The characters are a bit more gray than in the previous two stories....

Divine by Mistake

Ever since reading ‘Goddess of the Sea’ by P.C. Cast she has held a special place in my heart. I absolutely adore almost everything I have ever read of hers and this book is no exception. P.C. Cast has a way about writing that g...

Divine by Choice

I have stated many times before P.C. Cast weaves a tale like no other author I have ever read. She can turn a story into something that you can believe in and feel in your heart and soul. You will cry and love and laugh with each and every...

Unzipped : An Urban Erotic Tale

Unzipped was the first ‘street’ sort of book I have ever read and it will be a genre that I will pick up more often now. I really struggled with the actual reading of this book. I understand characterization but I could not get...

Bedtime Stories - A Collection of Erotic Fairy Tales

Jean Johnson is an author that can transcend any sort of writing style and story. She is a master storyteller and fantastic writer. This collection of erotic fairy tales is simply amazing and completely reminiscent of the amazing work that...

Lover Mine - Black Dagger Brotherhood, #8

Wow, to read this book only once for review was not enough. I had to read it twice before I could literally wrap my head around everyone’s current situations. Most J.R. Ward fans have seen John Mathew (JM) grow up, so to speak. It is...

A Tempting Taste

The idea of this book is great. I love a good sexy swingers story but I felt that I could not relate to the characters well because they were older, in their 60’s older. I know that a lot of people look so much younger these days and...

Colors of the Night

This book is excellent. I love the idea of the Goddess of Love teaching this couple how to love and accept love. The characters are normal people, just a normal couple with normal issues and the Goddess is well a Goddess, so she is not norm...

House of Dark Shadows - Dreamhouse Kings, Book #1

House of Dark Shadows is the first book in the Dreamhouse Kings series. I enjoyed the imagery the author uses and the trueness to the emotions of the characters. However, I do think that as far as a young adult novel goes it may be a bit to...

Hearts At Stake - The Drake Chronicls - Being A Vampire Princess Really Bites, Book 1

Wow, it has been a long time since a new vampire series has caught my attention, but this one definitely has. In this YA series by Alexandra Harvey she has turned vampirism into sort of a disease, at least for the main character. The take o...

First Test - Protector of the Small #01

‘First Test’ by Tamora Pierce is a heart-warming story about a young girl standing up for what is right and true in a setting that is not so conducive to women and girls in “manly” jobs. Little Kel is one of the stro...

WereSlave

This book has a very high level of sensuality but also a very high level of clichés. Cliché not necessarily a bad thing in erotica but to many of them and it gets pretty distracting. The characters were pretty vivid, except Ka...

Into the Mist

Into the Mist is a short, sweet, and sexy story. There is just enough back ground to get the reader going and enough heat to keep the reader glued to the pages. I think this story could have easily been expanded to a bigger work, a novella...

Heaven Sent 6: Revelations

Candelabra lives up to its name incredibly well, it is scalding hot. Afton Locke writes with ease and knowledge of experience, or really great research. BDSM is a world that few can handle well, and Ms. Locke shows a different side of BDSM...

Bast's Perfume - Goddess Revealed, Book One

Bast's Perfume by Marisa Chenery was a fairly short read. Even though the length was short, this novelette was far reaching. The story of Bast and Slade had all the makings of a great paranormal romance; it contained great sensuality, magic...

Blood Bought - Cruentus Dragons, Book Two

This book was perfect in some areas and a bit over the top in others. The characters are awesome. They both are strong individuals and both practically perfect for each other. The problem with them though is that they were a bit over the ed...

Elphame's Choice - Age: 13 and Older / Not Suitable for Younger Readers

There is so much I want to say about this book I don't even know where to begin. First off, I LOVED the Parthenon series and P.C. Cast is quickly becoming my favorite author of all time. I loved her Goddess Summoning series as well, anyway....
