Heart Bandit


HEART BANDIT is the first book in the Gargoyle Night Guardians series, and we start off with Beaumont, who has been a Gargoyle for over 800 years. We find a new world of evil fae, the Critch, dubious souls, and an unwillingness to give in. Sadie does...

Matching Bloodlines


MATCHING BLOODLINES is the third book in The Princeton Allegiant series, and trust me when I say this series just keeps on getting better and better! Although I would say you "could" read this as a standalone, the better question would be "why?" At...

Cross Her Heart


Melinda Leigh's an old hand at this by now--writing taut and tight thrillers, I mean. With cleverly plotted, smartly-paced narratives that scarcely let you blink, the new Bree Taggert series--following the Morgan Dane one which I loved--is promising to...

Trusted


TRUSTED is the second book in the Club Indigo series, and this time we focus on Suzie, Laura's sister, and Captain Connor. Although Suzie was horrified when she saw Laura's cuff marks on her wrists, it turns out that Suzie likes the sharp edge of pain! This...

Divine Challenges


DIVINE CHALLENGES is the second book in the Rise of Stria trilogy, and we return to Evainne and Kahl as they try to figure out... well, everything, really. Their relationship is still early days but it's amazing how fast something moves when your life...

Every Kiss


A sweet, heartwarming start to Music, Love and Other Miseries. The characters were believable and engaging, the story was well delivered and alluring. A thoroughly enjoyable read and one I recommend.

Dangerous Decisions


DANGEROUS DECISIONS is the third book in the Obsidian Flame series and although we continue with the overall story arc, this one has Hank and Misha on prominent display. Hank has been keeping a secret from Lara and so, as it turns out, has Misha. Both...

Earl of Scarborough


Ansley Twistleton, Earl of Scarborough, is a socially awkward man, who mostly keeps to himself. He has a routine which he adheres to like clockwork - any deviation causes him anxiety. Today we'd call his condition obsessive compulsive disorder. Despite...

Seaside Serenade (Seaside Summers Book 9)


Wow! Another amazing hit by Melissa Foster. This is a quick read. Just 75 pages. But inside of those pages, Ms. Foster packs it full of amazing characters, wonderful story line and lots of amazing goodness! I have been her fan for sometime so I always...

Run for the Roses


RUN FOR THE ROSES is the first book in the Circles series, and it is a much lighter storyline than some of her other books. There is also a hefty dollop of mystery in here for good measure. Val and Janelle are best buddies, bonding over their past...

Eyes Wide Open


Sweet coming of age story, Fiona is trying to figure out what to do with her life. She's wanted to work in the "big city" London. She's just getting by with her bar job. Already stuck in a rut with a degree that appears to be useless, will she end up...

Together Bound


TOGETHER BOUND is the second book in the Sentries series and we continue with Todd and Nicky's story. I would definitely recommend reading this as a series as we deal with the same characters in the same world and if you don't, then this may not make...

Submitting to the Cattleman


BJ Wane's highly anticipated sixth addition to her Cowboy Doms series has hit the shelves today, and SUBMITTING TO THE CATTLEMAN is a holiday treat that was totally worth waiting for. What I enjoy about BJ's books is that I'm able to submerse myself into...

Hate Crush


The bully-love-hate-teacher-forbidden mega trope romance is a not-so-secret catnip of mine, so HATE CRUSH seemed like a good idea at the time. And to be fair, I did have an idea of what this was going to be and there were no illusions (at least, not too...

Tweet Cute


3.5 stars rounding up... What happens when teens take over a Twitter war, for the sake of protecting their own families' legacies? TWEET CUTE is the hypothetical answer, it seems, in a very, very updated version of You've Got Mail where 'enemies' in...

The Business of Blood


Taking place smack in the aftermath of the Ripper murders in the most squalid bits of London, THE BUSINESS OF BLOOD follows an intrepid Fiona Mahoney who has somehow managed to eke a place out for herself as the clean-up crew of wet work, keeping company...

Headliners


Nick Davenport and Sabrina Carlton are petty rivals on and off tv, but there's good cause for it...up until the point where both their careers are suddenly in jeopardy. A twist of events forces them to co-host the dreaded early-morning show which no one...

How To Train Your Baron


Elsinore Cosgrove got more than she bargained for when she left the ballroom in search of Lord Byron. Quin Graham didn't exactly sign up for a bride when Elsinore got her hand stuck in a guillotine, but hey, everything happens for a reason, right? How...

We Still Live


WE STILL LIVE is a contemporary, standalone book that deals with some hard-hitting issues - mental illness and violence at school being just two. John is classed as a hero for his actions in the summer, but it affected him in ways even he doesn't fully...

Fire Beyond the Frost


FIRE BEYOND THE FROST introduces the reader to Catalina, an accomplished surgeon from Earth who signs up to go to an isolated ice planet called Ruvuk. Not only does she want to help the inhabitants of Ruvuk but she also wants to leave behind her ex-fiance....

Jennifer's Christmas Daddy


If you are a reader of Raisa Greywood, then you know she's known for some amazing paranormal romances with a twist. And while I'd read some of her work on Literotica, I became a huge fan after reading BASTARD'S NEW BABY, which checked all the boxes with...

Shadows


In the bayou of New Orleans (a place that certainly lends credibility to the paranormal plot), three sisters gifted with paranormal abilities are suddenly thrust into a fight for their survival when things happening in the physical plane start mirroring...

Dark One's Bride


DARK ONE'S BRIDE continues where book one (Dark One's Mistress) finished, with a five-month gap. We rejoin Clara as she travels to Endlight to be reunited with Lucias and prepare for their wedding. Attitudes need to be adjusted all round, as Lucias needs...

Whiteout


Adeptly written, full of thrilling moments showing superb narrative control, WHITEOUT is putting Adriana Anders on my romantic-suspense-authors list. Truth is, I had a damn good time with this. Few stories use Antarctica as a setting; even fewer delve...

Colder Than Sin


With non-stop action, COLDER THAN SIN pushes all the James Bond buttons right: a terrorist bombing of a security convention in Indonesia--itself a volatile part of Southeast Asia--a bid to escape, the kind of incidental romance that blooms along the way. And...

Wicked Fire


WICKED FIRE is the third book in the Wicked Magic series, and we continue our story by focusing on Morgaine and Drako. Morgaine was imprisoned within a menhir but it broke and she was free. After being 'oh so nicely' given the instructions to go to America...

The Borrowed Bride


Jaye Peaches' historical romance, BORROWED BRIDE, was an entertaining read. Young Dara is pressured (hah, let's be real, coerced is more like it) by her family to wed a much older man who doesn't love her (there's a secret there). But no one will tell...

A Convenient Fiction


Alex Archer is an orphan, and has made his living by his wits and by gambling, which he's very good at. Nothing has really seemed to satisfy that inexplicable longing in him, and he determines that what he needs is land--something he can belong to as...

Daughter of Rage and Beauty


DAUGHTER OF RAGE AND BEAUTY is the first book in the Berserker Academy series, and if this is any indication of what is to come, then I can't wait for book 2. Elin is a half-breed, part Fae and part Berserker. She has been looked down upon by her father...

Pretty Face


Lucy Parker's 'London Celebrities' is a rather unique series I think; there's nothing quite like what I've gone through in my years of reading romance and I do like the premise that each story is based on. Revolving around the tv or theatre scene and...

Sin For You


3.5 stars rounding up. Sherilee Gray tackles the brother's best friend trope with a grand helping of angst in SIN FOR YOU and it's a steamy one that pulls you in from the start. I definitely liked this one much better than the first in the series,...

Would Like to Meet


I love WOULD LIKE TO MEET! Engaging and captivating, this is one of my top reads for 2019. I literally couldn't put this book down. While it's pretty long--longer than usual--I finished this in two days (in between work). There are lots of things to love...

The Bookworm Crush


Romance with a capital R! Romance junkies shouldn't miss this. I love every minute of Amy and Todd's story. Amy is the bomb. She totally carries the entire story and it's a joy watching her grow to possess confidence in herself and her abilities. Of...

Marked Yours


MARKED YOURS is the first book in the Sentries series and it introduces us to a post-apocalyptic world where the rules have changed. Same-sex partnerships aren't seen as any different to any other kind of romantic or love partnership. What is different...

Trapped


TRAPPED is the first book in the Club Indigo series, and we meet Laura and James in a laundromat. James is a Dom who knows what he likes, and Laura is it. He knows she is a submissive, but she doesn't. Yes, she's read books about it, but that isn't real...

Post Plague Kidnapping


POST PLAGUE KIDNAPPING is an erotic post-apocalyptic story involving Leah, who has lived alone for the past five years and likes it that way, and James, who helped to build a colony where people can live in safety together. Now, obviously the title...

Desire's Destiny


DESIRE'S DESTINY is the first book in The Vespian Way series, and we are introduced to a world very different from Earth. They have their own customs and traditions, just like Earth does. Heather is assigned to the Ambassador as his bodyguard, but that...

Conspiracy of Ravens


CONSPIRACY OF RAVENS is the first book in the Raven Crawford series, and we meet Raven who is half-Fae and half-shifter. She is living on a knife's edge financially due to her ex-boyfriend and is too proud to ask for help. Instead, she gives up on her...

Taming My Whiskey


TAMING MY WHISKEY is the sixth book in the Whiskey series and finally, we get Dixie's story. She has been there for her brothers and she wants what they have. She wants this perfect, deep love, with roots that go down deep. Unfortunately, the man who...

Love Her or Lose Her


It isn't often that you get a romance about a decade-long married couple whose relationship has gone stale and dry, where the HEA is one where the fairytale is reiterated rather than newly formed. There's a bit more of a ring of maturity to such kind...
