A fake relationship between them would draw the world's gaze to her winery and solve Aish's image problems. There's just one catch: She hates him. He broke her heart ten years when they were kids during a California harvest season. He regrets breaking her heart. She regrets ever giving it to...

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
| 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...

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...

Variable Onset
| LGBTQ

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...

Appreciated

Lion Her Ass Off

The second book in Blue Valley Shifters, LION HER ASS OFF, is a romantic, steamy read. Hector, Julie and Deacon are well delivered, and their interaction is engaging. I found myself engrossed in the dynamic story from beginning to end and would recommend...

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...

Chained Hearts
| LGBTQ

CHAINED HEARTS is the third book in the Sentries series, and really, I have no idea how poor Nick gets through each day. He has had so much thrown at him and it's not over yet. Nick is suffering from PTSD following the attack by the Kelbit. Todd is...

Taken by the Outlaw

Together Bound
| LGBTQ

"I knew then that my life was about to pivot, but I had no idea it would veer this far off course." The Reviews ~ This was a touching story and was very realistically portrayed. ~ I loved this story. ~ Molly Unplanned is my absolute favorite book by Nicki Elson. Molly had a plan.

Accepting an offer for freebie rent on a sleepy Wisconsin farm offers a chance to get her life back on trackuntil a captivating cowboy turns out to be more than just a fun distraction, spinning Molly's life in a direction utterly (udderly?) unplanned.
