🎄Review and Holiday Q&A: With This Christmas Ring by Manda Collins 🎄

With this Christmas Ring is a delightful story with a second chance romance. I do enjoy historical romances and this one was a good one. Merry Parks was a woman who was on “the shelf” so to speak and had accepted her place by her father’s side as his assistant. She once had a lifetime of promises, but she left that all behind one night as she fled her betrothed […]

🎄Review and Holiday Q&A: A Season of You by Emma Douglas 🎄

Although this story is a Christmas romance it is not a light and fun read. A Season of You covers some pretty tough subjects and most of the story has to do with moving on after the death of a loved one. This story is not a ‘Christmastime story’ with a focus on Christmas but rather a story that takes place during holiday season and there are Christmastime festivities that […]

🎄Review and Holiday Q&A: Hope at Christmas by Nancy Naigle 🎄

In at Hope at Christmas, the story of Sydney’s character was written realistically and I appreciated that. It is hard for anyone to recover after revelations that lead to divorce and I think that there are many people who can relate to her feelings and the defenses she had in place. Mac’s character also had his share of loss but from a different viewpoint. I liked that his character had […]

Review: Deserving You by Amanda Siegrist

In Deserving You, Deja Wilson was not born into the best of families and her only bright spot was her brother Dare, until the day came when he was no longer around. On her own and alone Deja made many choices that she was not proud of but she was desperate. Although, one her not so wonderful choices introduced her to the McCord family and her best friend Sophie, so […]

Review: The Heart of the Alchemist by Penny Wells

For the last three years Katie had wallowed in her misery after her break-up with the man she thought she would spend forever with. Although she knew that she was in a downward spiral she just couldn’t seem to care enough to do anything about it. I think she had untreated depression, honestly. When her ex suddenly showed up at her place of business, it was the catalyst that she […]

Review: Breakaway by Sophia Henry with Giveaway

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: I don’t know why but I usually end up reading sports romances that revolve around hockey, which is ok with me because…hello….hockey players people. In Breakaway, Luke Daniels has had his world shattered in a moment. Everything he ever wanted was just..poof…gone. His childhood had given him the skills to rise against the odds and he was […]

Review: Hart of Mine by Annie Arcane

I adore the Cale and Mickey series and it was a shame that I had not had a chance to read this concluding novella before now. A real crime, people! Hart of Mine is the fourth novella in the Cale and Mickey series and as I understand it, is the final story in this series (but please say it isn’t so!). I have truly enjoyed getting to know these characters and […]

Review with Excerpt: Beautiful Surrender by Ember Raine Winters

Minx’s Musings: Something that I LOVE about Author Ember-Raine Winters’ writing style is that her stories always give something more than just sexy times. Beautiful Surrender is an action-packed thrill ride of ups and downs with a side of mystery and a whole lot of hoorah! I was also so excited to see that this story was about Trey and Kenzie finally figuring out what was going on between them. […]

Review: Perfect Love by Amanda Cowen with Giveaway

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Minx’s Musings: Perfect Love is the second book in the Perfect series. The Author is quite clear that you should read the first book in this series prior to reading this one but I am a rebel and I like to see how a book does on its own. I did find that yes, this is a series […]

Review, Q&A, Giveaway: The Goblins of Bellwater by Molly Ringle

Curses, goblins, and romance, Oh my! The Goblins of Bellwater may have been inspired by the poem “Goblin Market” by Christina Rossetti but it definitely has its own creative flair. Skye Darwen and her sister Livy Darwen had plenty of whimsy and creativity when they were children. Skye being a young adult still held on to some of her childhood whimsy of fairy tale folk skirting around in the woods […]

Review: Mackenzie’s Trust by Jane Blythe

Mackenzie’s Trust is the second novella from the Flashes of Fate series. In this story, I was quickly caught up in the nightmare that was Mackenzie’s reality. Let me tell you that it was not a situation I ever want to encounter myself. It was an absolutely terrifying scenario to consider! I loved how I was able to feel Mackenzie’s fear, loathing, and anxiety from the start of this short […]

Review: Paint by Murder by Amanda Siegrist

Paint by Murder was inspired by the daughters of Author Amanda Siegrist. Once a week her daughters will give her prompts for her flash fiction posts and she will choose one and write a short post, essentially a chapter, based on that prompt. This story started with the prompt “I never paint…” and voila an idea was born. Although it started out as just a blurb it quickly morphed into […]

Review: Where Dreams Merge by Maureen Driscoll

Where Dreams Merge is the second book in the Jasmine Cottage series. In this series, the Moore sisters had always lived out in the country but when their mother and father left for the Orient the sisters rented a small cottage to live in. This cottage, which they nicknamed the Jasmine cottage, was rented from their childhood friend Lord Audsley. The sisters soon faced reduced circumstances as their grandfather died […]

Review: Hot Pursuit by Julie Ann Walker

Hot Pursuit is the eleventh book in the Black Knights Inc. series. Black Knights Inc. is a covert government defense firm run under the guise of being a motorcycle repair shop. This firm takes on the missions that could not or would not be “sanctioned” by the government. The employees are a mix of ex-CIA operatives and other military backgrounds. This story is definitely non-stop action and suspense with some serious […]

Review: Sunsets at Seaside by Addison Cole with Excerpt

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: Sunsets at Seaside was a cute and swoony romance. I thought the setting was quite superb. I could really see the cottages nestled in between Cape Cod Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. It was a nice setting for a summertime romance. Jessica Ayers as a character was just a sweet little thing with her naivety and eagerness […]

Release Day Review: There’s Something About Vegas By Ember Raine Winters

There’s Something about Vegas is a story that took a different direction than what I have come to expect from Author Ember-Raine Winters. I thoroughly enjoy her other work and this story was no exception. The story starts with Rissa waking up in Vegas with regrets and leaving like a thief in the night. All she remembers from that night is waking up with an arm draped around her. Fast […]

Review: Going Dark by Monica McCarty

In Going Dark, Dan Warren was a gruff dive boat captain whose manners are nothing short of rude. He has no interest in taking some tree huggers out on the sea to protest a drilling rig’s presence. Dan Warren was just trying to keep a low profile, he was following orders. Dan Warren was actually Dean Baylor, the senior chief SEAL team member from the missing and presumed dead SEAL […]

Review: Shadow Reaper by Christine Feehan

Shadow Reaper is the second book in the Shadow Riders series and I love the characters from this series. The Ferraro family, they stick together through thick and thin. There are even the cousins from New York who are willing to jump in whenever help is needed. I just love the sense of familia that I get whenever I read a book from this series! In this story, Ricco Ferraro […]

Review: Take to the Limit by Dawn Ryder

I will admit that when I considered reading Take to the Limit from the Unbroken Heroes series I was a little apprehensive. The idea of a guy sleeping with two sisters and having a relationship with one of the sounded like the type of drama that I steer away from. I was beyond relieved that the Author handled that situation well and there were essentially no love triangles. Still not a […]

On the Chase is the second novel in the Rocky Mountain K9 Unit series. At the start of this story we meet Kaylee who is dating a man that she thinks to be perfect. Her best friend though feels otherwise about him. Kaylee should have listened to her best friend’s wisdom because while at a dinner hosted at her date’s relatives Kaylee stumbles upon a horrifying situation. I really enjoyed […]
