BOOK REVIEWS
Well Met
| Contemporary Romance

I've never gone to a Renaissance Faire, and reading this book makes me want to go to one right now. Jen De Luca describes the setting and the events vividly enough that I can "see" them and immerse myself in the sights and sounds, smells and heat of the...

A Rogue of One's Own
| Historical Romance

A ROGUE OF ONE'S OWN is all that I expected of Evie Dunmore and more. Coming on the heels of her first book, which was a tough act to follow, this book more than lived up to it. I wasn't all that enamored of Lucie at first, but she grew on me over...

Feel the Fire
| LGBTQ

FEEL THE FIRE is the third book in the Hotshots series and this one deals with second-chance romance. Back when they were teenagers, Luis and Tucker thought they'd be together forever... until life got in the way. This is a character-driven slow-burn...

Tane
| Romantic Science Fiction/Futuristic

Having followed Anna Hackett's Hell Squad series since the first few books came out, I'm actually quite a little misty-eyed at the swan song of this entire work. There's so much here that encapsulates the entire series, though TANE is one of its crowning...

The Wedding Date Disaster
| Contemporary Romance

3.5 stars Avery Flynn's THE WEDDING DATE DISASTER was something I wanted to read for a long while. The tropes seemed fantastic and the setting even better, with some humour scattered throughout in the form of familial relationships that tended to embarrass...

Feel the Fire
| LGBTQ

FEEL THE FIRE is really that second-chance romance done in a way that those who are wary of this trope would find themselves warming to. Luis Rivera and Tucker Ryland had left each other in the dust nearly 20 years ago as teens but a secondment to central...

See Her Die
| Romantic Suspense/Mystery

Melinda Leigh's an old-pro at this by now: a police procedural that starts predictably fragmented, with the careful low drop of clues and misdirections until the pieces slowly come together in a way that you couldn't quite thought of before in the beginning. SEE...

Cold Wicked Lies
| Contemporary Romance

I actually do think there's little that Toni Anderson can't do, especially as she continues to churn out high-quality reads with her FBI Cold Justice juggernaut of a series that doesn't seem to run out of steam. With COLD WICKED LIES, SSA Payne Novak...

Loud Mouth

Variable Onset

A Casual Glance
| Erotic Romance

A CASUAL GLANCE is a contemporary erotic romance by Celeste Prater. I have loved her Fueled by Lust and Three Divisions series, but this one I struggled with a little bit. It is fast-paced, starting off in a club and moving swiftly on from there. Within...

Only Marriage Will Do (house Of Pleasure, Book 2)
New Release! Not all happy-ever-afters begin with "I do." Two unexpected callers turn Lady Juliet Ferrers's world upside down. The first claims to be married to her via a proxy marriage, a statement she can scarcely credit—except she was betrothed to him once upon a time. To deter him, Juliet acts boldly when a stranger appears, declaring he is her husband. But when she is finally alone with the handsome visitor, she finds herself hoping she can turn her falsehood about their marriage into truth. Captain Amiable Dawson seems to have stepped into a fairy land when a beautiful young woman he's never met introduces him as her husband. The more she explains her situation, the less he is inclined to believe her, yet Amiable is a pushover for a damsel in distress. Against his better judgment, he agrees to accompany her to her family's estate far to the north. Along the way the passion between them sizzles until a happy-ever-after is all but assured. However, the question of Juliet's true husband rears its head again, forcing Amiable to wonder if he is married to the lady or not. When his rival abducts Juliet, Amiable is compelled to choose between the woman he loves or the law of the land that decrees she is not his wife. Desperate to rescue her at any cost, his last resort may be to kill the man who stands in the way of their happiness.
