Oh. I have to say that Scarlett Sanderson's CLAIMING RUBY was downright delicious. I'm not entirely sure what it is about the story but it lit me up in all the right ways. From how charming Ruby was to the understated masculinity of Joshua and how easily...

Lola


4 "Who's the Boss?" Stars. Warning: As I read a lot of romance titles, I think it's important to note from the start that this is not a romance title--it's a general fiction/thriller title.... Proving that society's prejudices are not solely reserved...

Exploited


The romance 'verse of hacking is a relatively unexplored one and diving into EXPLOITED was an absolute treat as I've always wanted a story that really dug into black hats, the mentality under which they operate and the scrutiny they face. That said,...

Spanked Into Submission

The Duke

The Red

At Their Command

Sherlock Holmes and the Mystery of Einstein's Daughter
