Lady Charlotte's Christmas Vigil


"He pulled her into an embrace, pushing back her bonnet and laying her head against his shoulder. She let the feeling of being cherished seep deep into her bones. She slid her hands up his chest to wrap around his neck and pull him closer." LADY CHARLOTTE'S...

New Moon


This book was awesome! I knew the moment I saw which characters were featured in this book that it was going to be great. We have an assassin who always seems to have a hand in everything being paired with a bounty hunter who is on a mission to uncover...

One To Grow On


ONE TO GROW ON was a short and sexy read. Romance and sex, sex and romance, need I say more? I highly rec' this to anyone who wants to read about a passionate married couple and their foray into some things that are considered taboo. I loved it. Judi...

Western Song


If you read the summary to Leigh Podgorski's WESTERN SONG, you might be left wondering about the story because let's admit it, there's not much there. "Contemporary Western Love Story about a bull riding rancher and his deceased best buddy's Thai immigrant...

Walk Between the Raindrops


Never underestimate a petite woman; it could kill you. This story hurt my heart so much. I've liked Scyre and June as they seem to be the mentors in the Suncoast Society. Scrye is the ultimate rope/rigger guy and they seem to have a wonderful life. They...

Jack


4 sad, sweet stars for JACK. Whitney Baldwin has moved to Seattle with the dream of opening her own bakery, but in the meantime she's making ends meet by cooking for clients in their homes. She's convinced that one particular client, Jack Carter, is...

Zero Hour


ZERO HOUR spoke directly to the geek in me. I blank out at many things technical, so hackers (whether they be black/white hats) written as heroes/heroines of romances are relatively new in this genre but so welcome. I love the lingo, the geek side...

Blue Moon


To get a second chance, one man has to reveal himself...and his wolf. Anna has always had big dreams of being a journalist. She just needs an interview with a reclusive rock star to seal the deal. A man who isn't a fan of the media or publicity. And...

This Moody Bastard


Full time kinky sex is more exhausting than one thinks. Sometimes, too much of a good thing is a bad thing. This story features Cali, Sean and Max from Crafty Bastards. Whilst this can be read as a standalone, it's best to read about how Cali, Sean and...

Dirty Filthy Fix


5 super sexy swinger stars for DIRTY FILTHY FIX! By day, Trish Bisceglia is the mild mannered secretary, prim and proper and serving up refreshments to New York's most powerful businessmen...all while picturing what she'd love to be doing with them...

The Ultimatum


4.5 "Super Soldier Heroine" Stars for the story and 5 stars for the narration. What an engaging listen! I absolutely loved the suspense and powerful, super talented heroine who can give most superheroes a run for their money (think of her as a feminine...

Forging Krampus


On the naughty list and worried that Krampus is going to come after you? Not to worry because Krampus is focused on other issues. Badly behaving humans is the least of his worries. There is an anomaly with another Incarnation and for some reason, Nyx...

Junkyard Heart


I loved the beautifully flawed characters created by the author in this magnificent book. The internal struggles were extraordinary. And the way love made its entry into these broken souls was something to be remember. Out of London with a broken heart,...

Zandian Pet


"For a sex slave, there were worse gigs than Prium's Intergalactic Lounge, aka sex emporium." Like being one of a handful of remaining living Zandian females. Well that comes later. In the meantime, Mina has been forced to survive the best way she...

Once Upon a Christmas Eve


Elizabeth Hoyt delivers yet another of her trademark historical Maiden Lane romance. I have only vague recollections of Adam and Sarah, however, I'm glad to read about them both here on their journey to their HEA. Having loved this series a lot, I threw...

Rogue


Anna Hackett's ROGUE is in fact, a collection of 2 stories (and 2 pairings) fitted into the typical length of her book, which is kind of a surprise considering how her Galactic Gladiators series has hit its stride. Still, ROGUE is as always, an adventure-filled...

Last Rights


I have just finished a story by another fabulous new-to-me author who had me on the edge of my seat in suspense, crying and laughing, morally debating cloning and hot and twitchy with short, but steamy sex scenes. LAST RIGHTS by Ava Bradley was a...

Tap-Dancing the Minefields


Buy this book now. Is this a new series from the talented Ms. Gala? I certainly hope so! Full disclosure, I didn't read the blurb. Ms. Gala is an auto-read for me. I enjoy being surprised by her and prefer to go into a story completely cold. Most of the...

About That Kiss


I'm a bit at a loss here when it comes to writing this particular review. I often associate Jill Shalvis's books with romantic comedy with touches of the whimsical thrown in, so ABOUT THAT KISS threw me off a little with the genres it straddled. There...

An Ex for Christmas


I love this friends-to-lovers story! Lauren Layne really excels in this type of storyline (there's another book of hers with this same trope), as the change in the main characters' relationship was done in a believable way. That they were best friends...

Pretzel Logic


When it's love, waiting for the right time could take years. In this book, Ms. Dalton shows how patience can finally pay off. This book can be read as a standalone in the series. Ethan is a sexy dom who happens to be a cop. Two of my favourite combinations...

Owning It


5 like, totally fab stars for OWNING IT! Delaney Brooks is a free spirit, a bohemian artist trapped in the wrong decade. When her usually supportive parents practice some tough love, Laney knows it's time to grow up (a little), and she sees her acceptance...

Rise Again


The word ballet on the summary was what got my attention. I was a little disappointed for not being able to learn more about the ballet world at the beginning, but I ended with a lovely story of rising against the things that pull us down. Arkady...

Mafia and Magics


New characters taking the lead in this story is a breath of fresh air! Angel Zamora is a convict almost done paying his dues in jail. Right before he is released, he is brought into a tangled web by two FBI agents. What's worse than telling him he could...

Indecent Exposure


Tessa Bailey's The Academy series is shaping out to be quite a gem of all her books. INDECENT EXPOSURE is engaging, fun, appropriately angsty when the occasion calls for it and more emotionally resonant than the first book in the series. A deadbeat...

How to Lose an Alien in 10 days


Oh how I LOVE the fun, witty and romantic books of the Alienn, Arkansas series! HOW TO LOSE AN ALIEN IN 10 DAYS (Alienn, Arkansas Book 2) by Fiona Roarke is another romantic romp through Alienn, Arkansas and the Big Bang Truck Stop. This time Cam...

In Between The Earth And Sky


4 freedom loving stars for IN BETWEEN THE EARTH AND SKY. Lydia Larkin is a wild thing...and a hot mess. She can barely make it to her job without looking homeless, no less make it through the day without acting like a spaz. And the man who most definitely...

Liar, Liar


This is an author that I have been following for quite some time and this is the second series that I have fallen in love with. This book was filled with the same excitement and suspense as if I was reading the very first book in this series. I can't...

Three Little Lies: The Complete Novella Series


4 fun and sexy stars for the #ThreeLittleLies series! THINGS LIARS SAY Rating: 5 Greyson Keller did not set out to lie to her friends, but when they won't stop badgering her about having a date to her sorority's Gala, she panics and invents a...

Fire in the Hole


Divorcing a best friend, dumping a douche bag fiance and then finding perhaps the man of your dreams all in less than a week is an accomplishment. Not sure if it is a good or bad feat, Lara's head is still whirling. This book overlaps the book Splendid...

You Never Could Be


"Her whole body tensed. He was too close and yet not close enough. Wanting his hands on her, his lips against her skin, the pulse of his body smothering her, in a rush of desire Sara lifted onto her toes, taking possession of his mouth." Sara Rozek...

Beautiful Lawman


Whatever it is--jobs or money or security--that most people take for granted, Piper Walsh hasn't had an easy time of it. It isn't often that I feel a huge affinity for a protagonist, but Piper certainly made my chest ache big time. There was so much...

Balancing the Scales


5 pond crossing stars for BALANCING THE SCALES! The infamous Manhattan lawyer Drew Harrington has it all: a killer career, his pick of gorgeous NYC women and a generally kick ass life. So he doesn't expect the sucker punch that a 5ft nothing British...

The Girl in the Tower


THE GIRL IN THE TOWER continues the story left off from The Bear and the Nightingale, where Vasya decided to go off adventuring into the world, to avoid the villagers at home who accused her of being a witch and perhaps because she also felt guilt at...

The Forest of Dark Delights


Happily ever afters only happen when the author stops a story at the right place. Beauty and the Beast ended with the curse broken. But what if it was not? What if, Gaston never died? In a fairy-tale reinterpretation, Mr. Cox poses this alternate ending....

Master Me, Please


I've been curious about BJ Wane's MASTER ME, PLEASE since I started reading teasers online. Likes: It can be difficult to master the use of flashbacks effectively but Ms. Wane pulls it off juxtaposing the past and the present in such a way that she...

Deadly Premonitions


4 serial killer stars for DEADLY PREMONITIONS. Shailyn Doyle has been through hell at the hands of a brilliant but insane serial killer, and Townes Calvert blames himself for letting her get taken in the first place. Townes has been searching for Shepard...
