Relationship Resuscitation


RELATIONSHIP RESUSCITATION (The Juniper Court #5) by Jennifer Theriot is a contemporary romance novella. It is a short, easy read with heart. This story is part of the Juniper Court series revolving around neighbors on a cul-de-sac and is easily read...

Out of Time


At the heart of it, OUT OF TIME is one of assumed betrayal, even more assumptions that the protagonists have of each other and the elasticity of truth, all of which revolve around a botched mission, a missing SEAL team and questionable loyalties. Natalie...

Eye of the Eagle


I fell in love with this series after reading book 2, LEGACY of EVIL, and right when you think that Sharon Buchbinder couldn't do any better, she does. EYE OF THE EAGLE is an amazing continuation to this phenomenal family and I was so happy that Bert...

Whitsunday Dawn


WHITSUNDAY DAWN, set in the beautiful, otherworldly part of Northern Queensland, is so much more than the enemies-to-lovers trope undertaken by Annie Seaton when Olivia Sheridan tangles with Fynn James from the very start because of their conflicting...

Inked


Jess wanted Jackson the second their eyes met in her tattoo studio, but he never made a move...so she did. After one night together, he totally ghosts her, and she learns he's not exactly who he says he is. Jess is stressed about it, but when she's brutally...

Seer


SEER is the second book in the Soulmates series, and oh my goodness, this was a good read. We start off with Jeff, mourning his parents and not believing the murder-suicide the police have told him. Then Nick shows up at his door, and confirms without...

Truth

Earl of Grayson

Shifter Woods: Snarl


SHIFTER WOODS: SNARL is the third novella in the Esposito County Shifters series, and this time we are at the snow resort at Cougar Ridge. As you might expect, there are plenty of cougar shifters around, including Commander Robert Chandler, and his daughter,...

Fragments of Ash


With a flip in gender roles occurring here, Katy Regnery takes on the Cinderella story with FRAGMENTS OF ASH and starts off with brutality. But then again, the fairy tales in their original incarnations were morality stories with barely leashed undertones...

Encore: A Love Story of Hypnotic Abduction


Tantra Bensko's ENCORE was an interesting read and I had to sit on it for a couple days while I digested it. To say that it's clever storytelling really doesn't do the story justice; hence why I sat on it. Not having read any of Ms. Bensko's other works...

Pisces Hooks Taurus


An engaging and sweet slow burn romance that would make us believe in the importance of literature and love. Zane is a hopeless romantic, who believes in love at first sight and is determined to find love and marry the woman of his dreams before the...

The Duke and the Thief


Well, I'll start by saying that I'm a huge fan of both Ashe Barker and Jaye Peaches, so when I saw that the two of them got together to co-write THE DUKE AND THE THIEF, I couldn't resist. I will admit to being caught a bit by surprise. I'd chosen the...

Riven


Put together a reluctant rockstar and a supposed washout in the ever-fickle music industry and the result is a volatile cocktail that results in several life-changing decisions. Theo Decker's fame is wholly unwanted, and like a lost little boy, wanders...

The Secrets that Shape Us


So, I might have made some serious squealing noises when I realized that W.L. Brooks has released THE SECRETS THAT SHAPE US, book 2 of The McKay Series. The approval noises might have been tempered a bit but they are still enthusiastic as I delved into...

Maid for Love


There are stories that tickle your fancy and give you a case of the feel-goods and MAID FOR LOVE by Marie Force is one such story. Taking place on Gansett Island, Book 1 in this inspiring series introduces us to Maddie Chester and Mac McCarthy, Gansett's...

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...
