One-Eyed Royals


This was a mind-blowing instalment of what has become one of the best series I'd read. It was fantastic. Absolutely brilliant. The crime scene in Las Vegas is showing to be relentless to detective Levi Abraham and PI Dominic Russo who are, again,...

Memento Mori


After having his brain wiped and implanted with specific functions by "Mother," Jax isn't sure if he wants to know his true past or not. But he and the McKay-Taggart team are in Colorado to search for clues anyway. While there, Jax meets wilderness guide...

Innocent Target


I've always liked Katie Reus's Redemption Harbor series and the fact that they're standalones are pretty enticing. INNOCENT TARGET had been on my to-read list for a long time and when I finally settled down for Axel/Hadley's story, it wasn't hard to get...

Close to the Bone


I haven't read any Kendra Elliot books before, and I found CLOSE TO THE BONE to be an enjoyable, suspenseful read. Certainly, I never guessed who the murderer is, or perhaps that's because I haven't read enough suspense stories. In any case, as a first...

The Girl with Flowers in her Hair


This is my second book by Frances DeleCourt Winter and I thought this story was quite delightful. This was such a sweet story that as I was reading it, it was like a play. There was comedy, drama, romance, and a delightful ending. It was quirky and charming......

A Tall, Dark Cowboy Christmas


A TALL, DARK COWBOY CHRISTMAS (A Gold Valley Novel #4) by Maisey Yates is a contemporary holiday romance. This is an addition to the Gold Valley series and does have many characters crossing over from previous books in the series. The H/h romance can...

The Duke with the Dragon Tattoo


Kerrigan Byrne writes the most tortured, menacing and sinister men in Victorian Rebels, which is a feat considering this is no less than an old-school bodice ripper that can be indulged in simply because the story does turn out to be way more than the...

Cyclone


Reading CYCLONE, or rather, getting into the first book of Linear Tactical, is strangely akin to seeing Janie Crouch freed of her writing restraints, and there's no blunter way of putting it especially when it showcases the writing in fine form. CYCLONE...

Debriefing the Dead


Hyacinth Finch is caught between a screaming rock and a hard place. I wrote that sentence and it made me laugh so I am leading with it no matter what comes next. DEBRIEFING THE DEAD is an urban fantasy built on the wire frame of a paranormal romance....

Untamed Darkness


Love this series and so thrilled to see another book in the series. Maybe Ms. Wendley will write some more in this magical world of shifters and vampires. This tale takes the reader back to the beginning as a prequel, which means it can be read as a standalone....

Mistletoe Miracles


MISTLETOE MIRACLES (A Ransom Canyon Romance #7) by Jodi Thomas is a heartwarming addition to this series and is perfect for putting you in the Christmas romance spirit. In this book, there are three stories intertwined. All set in the small Texas town...

Sexy Mother Faker


When Damon Cavanaugh spotted a stunning woman across the bar months ago, he was too stunned to make his move. Fortunately, fate has put Delaney Brewster in his path again, and he won't make the same mistake twice. Damon realizes quickly that while neither...

Hot Winter Nights


There aren't many books that I know of that mix very, very light suspense with chicklit, but it seems that Jill Shalvis is carving that niche on her own with the Heartbreaker Bay series, with stories (quirky cases and droll banter and cozy girl talks)...

Season of Wonder


SEASON OF WONDER (A Haven Point Novel #9) by RaeAnne Thayne is a contemporary holiday romance set in the small town of Haven Point, Idaho. This book is part of a series and has some crossover characters, but it is easily read as a standalone. Daniela...

Black Cat Security


I have to admit that when I picked this story, I had no idea what I would be reading, as I got hooked on the title and didn't go past it before clicking "request". This was a compelling story that I found intriguing and read it over two sittings. Likes:...

Spinning Silver


SPINNING SILVER is a captivating fantasy read. I couldn't put it down and read it in one sitting. Basically, it's a retelling of Rumpeltstiltskin, with Miryem as the heroine who can spin silver into gold, whether in our world or the world of the Staryk...

What I've Done


Melinda Leigh's Morgan Dane juggernaut of a series goes on strong with no sign of abating and I for one, am glad for it. With little of the unnecessary (and sometimes over-exggerated) drama as her stalwart, arse-kicking protagonists who go from strength...

Counterpoint

Undercover: City of Seduction


UNDERCOVER: CITY OF SEDUCTION by Vivien Clark is the beginning of a romantic suspense series, I assume, because it is not described as such, but it leaves you on a huge cliff-hanger. FBI Agent Tess Flynn is on an undercover assignment in her hometown...
