Dead Man's Hand


When Marissa Milano makes a big mistake that could end her life, Gio Tacone comes riding in like dark knight saving her... from herself. Full disclosure, I read this book as a standalone and can be read by itself. I picked up this book because I like...

Tempted by Love: Jack


TEMPTED BY LOVE:JACK by Melissa Foster was an interesting read. It holds your attention from the first page, though there are a few times (not many) where the story dragged a bit. I didn't realize this was like a spin-off from a series, but it doesn't...

License to Bite


LICENSE TO BITE is the first book in the New Orleans Nocturnes series and up first we have an entitled rich girl and a moody vampire. Ethan is a serious vampire and still carries over two decades of guilt over his girlfriend. Jane is entitled, who...

SCINTILLA is the first book in the El Corazon series and we enter a world where supernaturals exist alongside 'normal' humans. As well as Werewolves, you have Scintillas (who can control electricity) and Prisms (who can reflect light), Jinnis, Leprachauns,...

Where Death Meets the Devil


WHERE DEATH MEETS THE DEVIL made me take a few deep breaths simply because of how brilliantly well-crafted and written it is--and that's on me for not discovering L.J. Hayward's fantastic start to a series that's got so much more going for it even after...

Love & Ghosts


LOVE & GHOSTS is the first book in the Crescent City Ghost Tours series. Sean is the owner of the Ghost Tours and sees and speaks to ghosts. This is part of who he is and he can't change that even when he wants to for Emily, who has an aversion to...

The Director


Steamy, forbidden and erotic, Ms. Rose kicks off a new kinky series with The Director. This story features the Chicago Bratva with a Russian Viking boss who is a dominant. Lord...have mercy, is Ravil sexy hot! When I first started this story, I was...

A Dark and Stormy Knight


A DARK AND STORMY KNIGHT is Kerrigan Byrne's latest in the Victorian Rebels series, a book that I'd been waiting for simply because it features yet another dark-ish and tortured male protagonist in the form of the uptight, intense and very righteous Sir...

Holidays in Blue


An ice storm becomes a perfect opportunity for these two ex-neighbors to spend time together. Getting to know each other become more than they expect, when the attraction they feel for each other start to come to the surface, in this emotional holiday...

The Hunted Bride


Jaye Peaches' THE HUNTED BRIDE is an entertaining read filled with aspects of a historical romance with a tad bit of the other worldly. Sort of. Starting with a bit of enemies-to-lovers, we meet Matilda (Tilda) and Gervais. Tilda is the apple of her father's...

Diomere's Mercenary


DIOMERE'S MERCENARY is the third book in the Gate Keeper Chronicles and this time it's Kardia's turn. Her mate actually met her many years ago but, as she was only a child, he went into a Long Sleep until she was ready. Now he has awoken and is prepared...

Meows and Mistletoe: A Holiday Anthology


Magical cats in a special place called "Cat's Paw Cove". How delightful can this be? As it turns out, this is a wonderful holiday book to read. I picked this up specifically because of Ms. Sharon Buchbinder. I am glad I picked this up because each story...

Bishop's Gambit


BISHOP'S GAMBIT is the second book in the Redclaw Origins series and we return to Bishop and Knight. Bishop has been grounded since the last mission and Miss Climpson is still determined to make her life difficult. Knight has been doing lots of research...

The Ex Talk


THE EX TALK is a fantastically original take on work nemesis-turned-lovers done in the realm of public radio--an area which I frankly know less than nothing about. But the context is simple enough: Rachel Lynn Solomon guides you through two at-odds colleagues...

Driven


The Deep Ops series is one where a ragtag crew (with their own quirks that sometimes straddle the unbelievable) battle the little things that go wrong, but DRIVEN feels a bit more like a police procedural gone rogue. Angus Force and Nari Zhang have had...

24 Dates


24 DATES is a beautiful book full of love and hope, with a struggling couple who are trying to prove themselves that the love that brought them together is still there. When Victor and Jian bought a house together, they were fulfilling one of their...

His Holiday Crush


HIS HOLIDAY CRUSH is a holiday romance that would left the reader with a big smile, from its sweet cover to its end. One night at his best friend's house should be enough for Max, to show him his suport and not risking losing the deal, that might give...

Beyond the Sea


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...

Weapons Master


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


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...

Hidden


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...

Capturing the Bride


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...

Hard Line


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...

Hell & Back


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...

Light of the Spirit


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


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


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


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...

The Wedding Date Disaster


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...

Tane


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...

Man Down


Grief and bereavement aren't the easiest things to write about, particularly when it comes the (in)ability of the protagonist to move on and fully commit to the love interest, especially if his/her previous relationship was established and near impossible...

Feel the Fire


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


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...
