The Right Kind of Rogue


I've always loved stories where the heroine is in love with her best friend's brother, and THE RIGHT KIND OF ROGUE seems to be that. However, I didn't quite like Meg, the heroine. She's timid and meek (as her mother described) and a bit irritating in...

Weaver's Lament


WEAVER'S LAMENT is a suspenseful novella in the Industrial Magic series, the second book after Brother's Ruin. Emma Newman packs so much in a short book that it's hard to be disappointed that it's, well, short. Charlotte didn't want to enter the Royal...

Mend Your Heart


I've somehow always hesitated to jump into Tracey Alvarez's Far North series, but this is probably because I'm so attached to her Down South crew that I'm probably as possessive of them as Alvarez is. But MEND YOUR HEART's blurb sounded heartbreaking...

Must Love More Kilts


I LOVE this time-travel historical romance series! The new book MUST LOVE MORE KILTS (Must Love Series #4) by Angela Quarles did not disappoint. This book focuses on the sister of the heroine from book three and the Highland warrior that she hand-fasts...

Maybe I Do


Books that deal directly with weddings do give me pause. Fussy bridezillas, miles of (pink) sequinned fluff, colour-coordinated decor, crazy cakes and the general wedding fever that gets most characters scurrying around can and often give me nightmares,...

Act Your Age


I'd initially thought ACT YOUR AGE was more of an age-gap story from the blurb--with some doling out of kink--though to my pleasant surprise, it turned out to be more than just a young woman's crush on her much older, broken boss who's a pale shadow of...

What begins as seemingly unrelated, cold-blooded murders appears to be an act of white supremacist leanings and at the heart of it would be a woman whose father was the leader of such a group, who also, twenty years ago, had been freed of that life when...

Fourth Time's a Charm


This book was a quickie by Scarlett Sanderson, who I am a big fan of. There's not a big plot here, just a woman named Cameron who wants to try group sex with her best friend and her boyfriend. Knowing her lover Vince's past, she gets him to agree then...

LUST


5 hooker with a heart of gold stars for LUST! If Perrie Fox had business cards, they'd list her title as Professional Dick Sucker. Hey, why beat around the bush, she's a Vegas prostitute after all. Perrie grew up in a very wealthy family, but her...

Unmapped


With every novella that Anna Hackett publishes, it becomes increasingly obvious that her imagination never runs dry and that alone puts me in awe of the content that's been churned out from her desk month after month. Ms. Hackett's Treasure Hunter...

Blood Freed


This is one of the few times reading a series out-of-order paid off. If I had read book one first, chances are I would not have continued the series, and I would missed out on two awesome stories. Thankfully, I had an enjoyable experience with the last...

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me


I survived another Mariana Zapata book and am damned proud of it. The length of her stories are daunting, make no mistake, and to go through all near-500 pages of a wry, sometimes-neurotic, sometimes-hilarious female voice telling only her side of the...

Undeniable Lover


UNDENIABLE LOVER is the fourth book in the Worlds of Lemuria: Earth Colony series. This IS a series, so you would have to read it from book one for it to make sense. That being said, this book is a brilliant addition to the series. Saar carries a scar...
