Wicked Deception


Elizabeth isn't made for domestic activities. Far suited to have long discourses on the relative merits of Darwin than managing to complete a needlepoint, she's sold into marriage to a handsome earl. However, marital bliss is not in the cards for her...

Succubus Heart


SUCCUBUS HEART is the second book in the Succubus Sirens series. Although I have not read book one, I do not feel this had a negative impact at all on my enjoyment of this book. We meet with Alana, a Nerilan princess who has voluntarily exiled herself...

Shards of Blood and Shadow


SHARDS OF BLOOD AND SHADOW is the first book in The Lost Shards series. We meet with Cleo, a psychic who seemed to inherit her powers--and the colour of one eye--when her mother died. She is approaching her birthday, and the prophecy she had grown up...

A Rose for a Rogue


Miss Eden Haverden has done some foolish things in her short time on this earth. But none so foolish as accepting Manchester's, Marquis of Sterling, invitation (no, insistence) to stay the night without a proper chaperone. Completely scandalized and with...

Unzipped


Kyler is convinced his ex-girlfriend is ready and waiting for him now that he's gotten his life together. He's thought of nothing but her for the last 8 years, and as a fan of rom-com big gestures, he loads up the boom box and serenades her...or, more...

Like the Seasons


Boss and subordinate stories are hot for a reason. Their illicit nature is defined by their inherit power exchange. In most cases, it is the Boss who is the one in charge. In the continuation of Boyd and Caleb's romance, this holds true... in the bedroom....

Catch Me


Alianne Donnelly's CATCH ME is a new take on a fairytale, after the fact. In this case, the kingdom of Snow White is run more like a corporation with all the trappings of technology mixed with a bit of magic; and instead of the seven dwarves, we have...

Heart's Inferno


He shares the responsibility of protecting others from the supernatural dangers that surround them. It is a punishment he feels he earned for failing to keep others from their deaths. His beauty attracts women everywhere but he feels nothing for those...

The Savior


Cristin Harber's larger-than-life military/terrorism conspiracy plots often skirt closer to the edge of the unbelievable than many of the books I've gone through but then again, that's part of the basis of the romantic suspense genre: the homing in on...

Knights of Stone: Gavin (a shifter rockstar romance)

Arcane


This was an interesting book, with characters that develop throughout the pages. Its short length however made it a little bit difficult to follow the bigger picture. We have a witch still discovering her powers, a fight for control and lies threatening...

The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend's Sister


Bram Scott is a fantasy football genus, so forcing himself to lose so he can fulfill the terms of a bet with his friends is even more brilliant. Bram is ready to run through his BFF's sister Julia Weston's dating gauntlet, but what he's really determined...

Silent Evidence


The unfulfilled, unrequited type stories are what I tend to go after and SILENT EVIDENCE--touted by Rachel Grant as such--was one that I immediately pounced on when it came. Then again, reading Ms. Grant's works is always an enthralling, absorbing experience....

My Christmas Dream


MY CHRISTMAS DREAM by Marilyn Miles is a holiday novella that features a young woman going through many personal life changes. I feel this story is more of a coming of age Women's Fiction book with elements of romance than a contemporary romance. There...

A Very Braden Christmas (Love in Bloom: The Bradens)


A VERY BRADEN CHRISTMAS (The Braden #11) by Melissa Foster is a holiday novella that brings all of the Weston Bradens together for their traditional Christmas Eve celebration. I loved each of the individual Braden romance stories and I love catching up...

Let's Get Textual


You want this story. Seriously. If you've ever had any sort of conversation via text, then you want this story. Even better, if you've ever texted to a wrong number, you want this story. While I'm at it, don't drink or eat anything while reading because...

TRAILS OF LOVE (Love in Bloom #69; The Bradens #29; The Bradens & Montgomerys: Pleasant Hill--Oak Falls #3) by Melissa Foster features Morgyn Montgomery and Graham Braden in a contemporary romance that left my romantic heart completely satisfied. Morgyn...

Whiskey Undone


Ainsley Harris has been in love with Loch Collins for years, but she's contented herself with just being his BFF, if it means staying involved in his life. One fateful night, the two hook up, and it stresses them out. That and a murder in Loch's gym changes...

The Fearless King


Reading THE FEARLESS KING was sort of bizarre, because it felt like a very well-written drama that I wanted more of, but couldn't understand because I was tossed straight into the middle of a series at say, episode 143 with a backlog of events that I'd...

Red Shoes


Donna Steele has written a wondrous novella regarding a young woman, living under the assumed name of Nicole [Nikki] Setzer, who has just escaped from the cloistered life she had to endure living under with her rich, power-hunger, aspiring State Senator...

For the Roses


Not all doms are made equal. And not all men who call themselves doms should be one. This story hit me in the gut from the beginning. Meri is not just down on her luck. She's been kicked whilst she's down. I reckon if she wasn't as loved by her brother,...

Sleight of Hand


I've been an avid follower of Julie Rowe's Outbreak Task Force series from the beginning, but then again, I do get the thrills from biological warfare-type romances even if some parts always stretch my ability to keep the suspension of disbelief going. SLEIGHT...

A SEASON TO DANCE by Rebecca Heflin is a small town contemporary second chance romance with characters that evoke all of your emotions from high to low and vivid writing that makes you believe you are dancing right along with the heroine. This story is...

Miss Compton's Christmas Romance


I love a good period piece and I enjoy them even more when there's an obvious Christmas theme to it. In Sophie Barnes' MISS COMPTON'S CHRISTMAS ROMANCE, we get both. Leonora Compton is a gentleman's daughter. As the oldest sibling, her coming out didn't...

Craft Brew


CRAFT BREW is the second book in the Trouble Brewing series, and should definitely be read after Imperial Stout. Trust me when I say you won't want to miss a single moment of the action! Cam and Nic have been together for four months, and due to what...

Judgment of the Moon and Stars


The title is fitting as this is a judgmental book where two men collide only to be torn apart. Not sure how many times Ms. Dalton will continue to pound through about conservative Christians giving gay men a hard time. But they do say, write what you...

A Spanktacular Fourth


When it comes to Independence day, the kinky group sometimes takes it to an extreme. I've personally been interested in fire floggers but to have fireworks mixed in? That is a bit extreme for me. This does stop the dynamic trouble duo... Max and Sean....

Imperial Stout


IMPERIAL STOUT is the first book in the Trouble Brewing series, which is a spin-off from Agents Irish and Whiskey. We jump straight into the action, both between the two main characters, Nic and Cam, and also with the job they are on. Things don't go...
