Captivated by the Gargoyle


CAPTIVATED BY THE GARGOYLE (Boston Stone Sentries Book #3) by Lisa Carlisle is the end of the paranormal romance trilogy of novellas following Larissa and Roman. Although this is the third book in the trilogy, I believe you receive enough backstory and...

Dear Jane

The Governess Game


THE GOVERNESS GAME contains Tessa Dare's trademark humor and strong heroines. Alexandra was orphaned at an early age, due to circumstances beyond her or her family's control, and she's suffered a lot in her childhood, but she was still able to land on...

Unspeakable


Elisabeth Naughton's Deadly Secrets is a series that constantly surprises me, and much of that has to do with how Ms. Naughton weaves stories built on the unrelated personal histories of each adopted McClane sibling's varied pasts. UNSPEAKABLE is an engaging...

Withholding Nothing


What's a girl to do when her supposed boyfriend drops her for one of her friends? When a revenge scheme goes (waaaay) too far, Ashton Carter finds herself saddled with an enormous debt and forced to take a job as a phone sex operator when she figures...

The Simple Wild


I've always wondered if THE SIMPLE WILD was meant to be an angsty 'growing-up' New Adult type book or a smart-alecky rom-com story. But the truth is that it probably falls somewhere in between and had me sniffing a mite bit by the end of it. From the...

Wicked Whiskey Love (A Sexy Standalone Romance)


WICKED WHISKEY LOVE is the fourth book in The Whiskeys series, but each book can be read as a standalone. In this one, we meet Sarah, a single mum of two with one on the way. Now she hasn't had it easy, but we don't find out the whole story all at once....

Taming His Hellion Countess


Sorcha Mowbray's TAMING HIS HELLION COUNTESS was a grand read that will both scintillate and amuse you. As a lover of period novels, I was excited to see this book and was even more pleased to find out that it's an erotica romance. So let's jump in. Likes:...

Concealed


CONCEALED is a story from the Blood Courtesan world, a series of standalones by different authors. This one has been written by Rosalie Redd, and an amazing job she has done with it too. Lexi and Gavin's story is a Beauty and the Beast tale, with a...

Take Me in the Night


R.L. Kenderson's TAKE ME IN THE NIGHT was an entertaining story that takes you from lovers to enemies and back again. High school sweethearts Addison and Maddox are ripped apart when Maddox is accused of a crime he didn't commit. Given the option...

Water Under the Bridge


I'll say something from the outset and that has to do with how much I normally love Lily Malone's writing. It's just WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE that didn't quite work out right for me, despite the wonderful setting of a part of Western Australia so little...

The Dean's List


In The Dean's List, we are given a glimpse into the life of a high-class escort. The Dean's List is a program where the alumni of a certain university mentors the graduate students in exchange for um, favors. It could be conversation, companionship or...

Eagle


What I've found so unusual about Linear Tactical is how Janie Crouch has found a way of getting her characters peripherally involved in huge governmental-level-type espionage incidents even if they aren't actually neck-deep in the deep-end of things and...

Shadow and Ice


Wow, what a great book! When Vale stumbles into an arctic cave with her sister, she never expects to find ancient alien warriors frozen inside. Especially one, with the body of a Greek god and the temperament of a piranha. For some reason, he takes...

Combust (a vampire and firefighter paranormal romance)

Chateau Swansea


It isn't a secret that I love a good period piece. Add in a bit of a mystery and some suspense, and I'm sold. In R.C. Matthews' THE SECRETS OF CHATEAU SWANSEA, we get all that and so much more. I was absolutely swept up into the story, so much so that...

Touch Up


Fame isn't as glamorous as it seems for Dina Gilbert whose difficulty to cope with it brings her to a dangerous path in this charming and captivating romance. Dina Gilbert is a rising star becoming overwhelmed by the fame that is making her act in...

Empty-Handed Heart


Is this Cardinal Rule all over again? One of the first books I read by Ms. Dalton broke my heart. One of the first books in the series, a love story all twisted and angst-filled just about killed me. When a beloved Dom leaves a submissive with little...

Seduced by a Scot


SEDUCED BY A SCOT (The Highland Grooms #6) by Julie London is a historical romance set in 1758 Scotland. Even though this book is part of a series, it can be easily read as a standalone. Nichol Bain is a "fixer" for the aristocracy. He prides himself...

Fractured Honor


After all these years, Kaylea Cross's paramilitary romantic suspense books are probably quite an institution in this small corner of the romance fiction market and it's always exciting to step into a new series Cross begins. Crimson Point--as exotic...

The House of Fear


A sex demon as a lover may not always be as he appears. A follow up to Soul Infection, this story should be read in the order it was written. Reading this as a standalone is not recommended. After a few passion-filled nights, Tristan is determined...

Off Limits


High society and punk music make a perfect clash in this angsty romance that would get us wanting more on the series. As the first instalment of the Rose & Thorns series, OFF LIMITS delivers an enthralling and strong first impression. Nat's job as...

The Hotter They Come


THE HOTTER THEY COME is a story of following the heart and doing what's right, or at least the beginning of one. It is the first part of Piper and Jack's romance, so don't expect a sunshine and roses, happy ever after ending. The writing is good,...

Dear Santa


Retellings can be a hit or miss for me, and a miss usually if it follows the original's plot and storyline to the letter. DEAR SANTA is a retelling of You've Got Mail (starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan) in the season of Christmas, and instead of books,...

Hunting Danger


Katie Reus's Redemption Harbor series definitely goes from strength to strength with each instalment and HUNTING DANGER takes on the boss/employee relationship that's got a delicious hint of the forbidden. Gage and Nova have had the hots for each...

A Bone to Pick Up


A BONE TO PICK focuses on another mystery murder and features Tessa Black, the best friend of book one's heroine Cate Wilde, and Cate's brother Logan. I think this book is mainly to introduce the heroine and her romantic partner, because while the mystery...

TAKEN


Wow! I love a good sci fi romance and Alison Aimes' TAKEN was a fantastic read. Ava is Councilman Hollisworth's fifth wife and breeder. Wanting to live life on her terms, she manages to escape and hopes to make a life for herself, one where she gets to...

Embrace the Passion


This review in this anthology is for Anna Hackett's "Desert Hunter", a short, short piece of 50+ pages that feels like the swan song of Ms. Hackett's wildly adventurous Galactic Gladiator series. Bren and Mersi made their brief but memorable appearances...

Wolf Rising


Eight books on into Paige Tyler's shapeshifter SWAT series, WOLF RISING finally goes deeper to explore the idea of the omega wolf: the long, violent ranger as opposed to the Alpha wolf pack like the SWAT team this series revolves around. In the same...

In the Mood Fur Love


IN THE MOOD FUR LOVE features three different shifter stories from three different talented authors. Each author contributed a novella set in a world from their ongoing series and this makes me want to go and glom on the series' other books to learn more...
