BOOK REVIEWS
Beyond the Sea
| Contemporary Romance

3.5 stars rounding up L.H. Cosway's BEYOND THE SEA is an interesting one--and one that situates itself smack right between the well-known gothic tales: I see the naive, innocent Estella Shannon in the Northanger Abbey's Catherine Morland, Noah Dylan...

Hidden
| Contemporary Romance

One reason i always come back to Laura Griffin is that she delivers. Once again, HIDDEN is the perfect blend of suspense, a great plot and mystery that keeps you guessing. It's just the romance that's a bit lacking for me...plus the lies and omissions...

Weapons Master
| Romantic Science Fiction/Futuristic

WEAPONS MASTER is quite a ride; think of an amusement park ride hat takes you through a mish-mash of action-adventure classic films and tv series and you'd have Anna Hackett's Galactic Gladiators in a nutshell. As someone who's been held as a slave...

Agony
| Contemporary Romance

AGONY by Kaylee Ryan is an angst-fest from start to end; having gone into this without realising that this is a duet made it worse because it ends on an unhappy cliffhanger, despite you know that this has an HEA down the end of the line when the second...

Capturing the Bride
| Historical Romance

CAPTURING THE BRIDE is the first book in The Kidnap Club series and we find a small group of men, some of them nobles, helping to kidnap and rescue ladies who are in situations detrimental to their physical wellbeing. Along comes Grace, soon-to-be heiress...

Hell & Back
| Contemporary Romance

3.5 stars rounding up HELL & BACK is Julie Rowe's high-octane, medical-science thriller that, well, probably sits all too uncomfortable in this virus-ridden world at the moment. Still, it provides some mighty fine hours of escapism, non-stop action...

Hard Line
| Contemporary Romance

3.5 stars rounding up... What starts out as sabotage--with vague implications for world security that's not brought any further than that--turns into a murder mystery in the brutal cold. Set mostly in the deep, chilly region of Antarctica, HARD LINE...

Light of the Spirit
| Paranormal Romance

The fourth book in the Muse Chronicles, LIGHT OF THE SPIRIT is an engaging addition to this series. The characters are dynamic, the story captivating and the prophecy compelling. I will be looking to read more by this author.

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...

Well Met

Variable Onset

VARIABLE ONSET by Layla Rayne is a standalone but I would love to see it become a series. Lincoln and Carter are just amazing together! Lincoln is an agent and a professor at Quantico and Carter took his class eight years ago, making quite the impression...

A Valentine for Chelsea
| Erotic Romance

A VALENTINE FOR CHELSEA is a standalone novella and also a companion to Jennifer's Christmas Daddy. You don't have to have read that one but it does mention characters that are in it. Plus, you get the chance to read another great book by Raisa Greywood. Chelsea...

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...

A Barlow Lens
| LGBTQ

A BARLOW LENS is the second book in the Circles series and we continue with Wyatt and Val as they try to solve a mystery from a time-gone-by. I LOVED THIS STORY! I really enjoyed reading about the historical side of things, and how Tom and Philip managed...

Age Of Druids
Clíodhna has three children and a missing husband, and now finds herself in the middle of growing quarrels with the new church. When she encounters a strange man in the woods near her house, she discovers a kindred soul, someone to teach her to harness her own innate talents and powers. At the new church, she develops a friendship with one of the monks, and shares many conversations with him about life, philosophy, and theology. For once, it seems her life is becoming a thing to be savored rather than a thing to simply survive. Her new teacher, however, clashes with the ideals of the church. Her relationship with the monk is another source of conflict when a new church leader arrives. A few rash decisions means she must now change her own fate. That means choosing between her happiness—perhaps even her life—and her family. It might be better for all involved if she leaves her children with a trusted friend and disappears into another world. Can she flee a bad situation, leaving her children to the mercies of fate? Or does she have the power and ability to face the danger herself?
