Myths of Mish by Katie Hamstead

I am not usually a fairytale reader but I do enjoy reading the Fairytale Galaxy Chronicles. I love the idea of a story evolving from the ending of a famous fairytale. Even better is that the characters have their struggles from what they endured previously. I am always excited to see where the story goes. ūüėČ Hansel and Gretel‚Äôs tale of horror with the witch in the woods is a […]

Cage of Deceit by Jennifer Anne Davis

I had signed up to do a blog tour with Good Choice Reading Promotions for Cage of Darkness which is the second book in the Reign of Secrets series. For a lucky few who committed to the blog tour the author was offering a limited number of signed books for the first in the series, which was Cage of Deceit. Heck Yeah!

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Daughter of the Pirate King was a book I knew I had to read. I love anything pirates and bonus, female pirate protagonist, yep a must read. My reason for being unsure¬†was whether or not I was going to like this story due to the age of Alosa. I wasn‚Äôt sure how believable her character at seventeen was going to come across as a pirate captain. Turns out I had […]

Deception in Emeralds by Laura Landon, Review with Excerpt

Deception in Emeralds is a sweet little regency romance. Although it is part of a series it absolutely can be read as a stand-alone. I did not feel that I was missing anything by not having read the previous books. ¬†There is a traitor to the Crown that has proved most nefarious and slippery. Having lost several agents already, this mission has been classified as need to know information only […]

Taming a Rake into a Lord by Tammy Andresen

I love it when a series will bring back characters from previous installments and give them a true part in the story. Taming a Rake into a Lord includes the main characters from the previous three books in the Taming the Heart series. Which I just loved. They give the book a family/friendship vibe that is heartwarming and carries through until the end. In order to enjoy this book, it […]

A Lady in Disguise by Sandra Byrd

While reading the synopsis, I thought that the character of Miss Gillian Young was going to be sleuthing out clues to her father‚Äôs death. Something more along the lines of a female Sherlock Holmes. The investigation was nothing like that. Mostly it is Gillian asking questions to the police and others in hopes of learning something substantial. There is danger that seems to follow her around and the suspense is […]

Wanted and Wired by Vivien Jackson

This book is everything the synopsis promised and more. It was perfect for me! I love science fiction and the idea of technologically enhanced super humans just hits all my yes buttons. This book is exactly what I would find on the Syfy channel‚ÄĒwell maybe waaay late night Syfy channel. It has quite the sexy times throughout the story. So not really ‚Äúprime time‚ÄĚ material but entirely enjoyable to read. […]

Didn’t Get Frazzled by David Z. Hirsch

I like to challenge myself from time to time to step out and read something new. I have never read a medical fiction book before, which Didn’t Get Frazzled truly is. This story follows around Seth Levine as he navigates the world of being a medical student in New York City. This book is set in the early ninety‚Äôs and is written with the right proportions between all the medical […]

Can’t Buy Forever by Susan Laffoon

Can‚Äôt Buy Forever is a story about love, loss, and forgiveness. It also has fantasy elements, religious elements, and folklore. It was so much more than I expected. This story follows the lives of Odessa and Nicholas. At the start of the book, they have a connection that is amazing. There have been no physical actions on either of their parts to consummate the attraction because Odessa is young and […]

Charity’s Wrath by Jane Blythe

There is never anything about Author Jane Blythe‚Äôs writing that is warm and fuzzy. Her writing style is gritty, edgy and in your face. She is not afraid to explore the darker side of an unhealthy love. While reading her books I am always appalled at the sinister side of humanity she conveys and shocked at how the character‚Äôs act and react. It always resonates with me though how her […]

Rain by India R Adams

I have read several books by India Adams. My first book was actually a novella called Blue Waters from the Tainted Waters series. That book was just amazingly written and it just tore my heart out in all the best ways! I loved it so much that I had added it to my favorites shelf at Goodreads. India and I were chatting on Twitter and she gifted me any book […]

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

What was it that drew me to this story? A story revolving around necromancy is not something you run into that often and hello on that gorgeous cover! Upon reading it I find that there is a significant Asian (think geisha) influence throughout the writing and the story itself is about love, loss and revenge. This story is told from two points of view and it transitions from past to […]
