Burning Up


If there's anything to be expected of Jennifer Blackwood's writing, it's the hefty dose of humour inserted in straight from the start, or at least it's what I've come to associate Ms. Blackwood with. BURNING UP began with a woman on the outs and her...

Breaking the Rules of Revenge


BREAKING THE RULES OF REVENGE started out well with the introduction to Mallory and her twin sister, the difference in their personalities as well as how Mallory got sent to Camp Pine Ridge instead of Blake. The book placed us right in the middle of the...

Taboo Frequency


TABOO FREQUENCY took me by surprise in a couple of ways. First, given its length, I was surprised to find that the romance is not insta-love. The story takes place over months and the love blooms little by little. My second surprise came early in the...

Chosen by the Senator

Her Keeper


This one is something of a mixed bag of tropes in the romance genre. We have a bit of an enemies to lovers story with Rick and Sara going toe to toe over a grudge, which leads to the romantic comedy elements with the witty banter and chuckle-worthy situations....

Magic Flame (Enchanted Book 3)


ALL GOOD THINGS COME IN THREES According to Wikipedia there's a connection between the number "3" and writing: "The rule of three is a writing principle that suggests that a trio of events or characters is more humorous, satisfying, or effective...

Stripped


Tara Wyatt's newest law enforcement series sounded like the kind of romantic suspense I wanted to dig my heels into and STRIPPED--in more ways than one--is the introduction to a trio of detectives seeking to avenge the death of their friend, while finding...

Wonderfully Wicked


WONDERFULLY WICKED is the first book in The Dreamcaster series, and we start off with Kalila. She is a 'normal' woman plagued with un-normal nightmares. These nightmares can come to life and hurt both Kalila and those around her if she allows them. Lydon...

Hot Daddy

Mia's Men


3 stars for four of MIA'S MEN. Mia Harrington was devastated by the loss of her father, but the stipulation that she marry a "suitable" man AND have the dude take HER name within one year before she can collect her inheritance? Mind numbing. But if...

Prodigal Slave


Familiar with the parable of the "Prodigal Son," seeing the title of Roxy Harte's PRODIGAL SLAVE, I was instantly intrigued and knew I wanted to read it. Add in that this story takes place twenty years later, and there's a much younger man involved, and...

Offered to the Cyborg


OFFERED TO THE CYBORG is the second book in the Cy-Con series, but can be read as a standalone. Shaylee was kidnapped from Earth, and has been used and passed around as a slave since then. Although she has had children, she has never found pleasure in...

Making Up


I don't have much experience with reading Lucy Parker's books, but MAKING UP's enemies-to-lovers blurb drew me right in. I loved the chaotic opening that was full of sensory delights mixed with the drama that happens both onstage and offstage--that's...

Earl of Sunderland


Love when you least expect (or want) it... Kit wasn't ready to take over his twin brother's title after his untimely death. As a military man, he isn't used to the pacing of running a country estate. Nor is he prepared to handle the possibility his...

Hooked On You


Kate Meader's writing is always one that I look out for. There's quirk, some humour and sometimes cheese, but it never fails to entertain. HOOKED ON YOU closes her Chicago Rebels series and having come fresh off the scorching push-pull relationship of...

The Laird of Blackloch

Starry Eyes
