Review: How to Ensnare a Highlander by Michelle McLean

How to Ensnare a Highlander is the second book in the MacGregor Lairds series but it can definitely be read as a standalone. I really liked Lady Elizabet Harding’s character. Her family life was not something that I would wish on anyone. Her father was the kind of man that had his eyes set on amassing more wealth and prestige and he didn’t care who’s toes he had to step […]

Review: Survive the Night by Katie Ruggle

To say that Survive the Night is my favorite book in the Rocky Mountain K9 Unit series would be an absolutely true statement! I did not think that I was going to love Otto Gunnersen’s character as much as I did because I usually prefer more alpha male type characters but I loved Otto! He was so sweet and bumbling but at the same time fiercely protective, a girl could […]

Review: The Lying Kind by Alison James

What a great investigative mystery that The Lying Kind delivered! From the beginning I was invested in this case and not just because of the mystery of it all, even though that was such a draw for me. There was a great dynamic between all the characters in this story, especially between Detective Inspector Rachel Prince and her partner Detective Sargent Mark Brickall. They were a great duo and all […]

Review: Heat by Donna Grant

When I started to read Heat, I was expecting a continuation of the overarching plot involving Ulrik, as well as the drama between Usaeil and Con, with a little loving between Nikolai and Esther. Well I got all that and more! There was a definite romance element between Nikolai and Esther but that was more of a natural progression that was based on mutual attraction, not an all-encompassing need to […]

Review: When the Stars Come Out by Laura Trentham

When the Stars Come Out is the fifth book in the Cottonbloom series and what drew me to this story was that the main character Willa was a mechanic. That is an unusual occupation for a female character to have and I was interested to see if she was a mechanic in name only in order to make the story different or if she truly played the part. I was […]

Review & Giveaway: Baby, I’m Howling for You by Christine Warren

When I first started reading Baby, I’m Howling For You I was immediately drawn in to the story. The opening scenes were filled with action and a little suspense. Renny Landry was running for her life from a pack of coyote shifters who were determined to bring her back to the lunatic that Renny had spent the last several months running from. Her last-ditch effort was to try and get […]

Novella Review: Something to Howl About by Christine Warren

A brand new paranormal romance series by author Christine Warren?! Yes please! Something to Howl About was a fast read that provided an engaging introduction into the town of Alpha which was situated in the Cascade Mountain range located in the state of Washington. Alpha was the place where shifters who had problems, wanted to be alone, or needed to recover from something or another went to. This community was […]

Review: Judgment Road by Christine Feehan

I wanted to read Judgment Road because it was a spinoff from the Sea Haven series and I rather enjoyed a few of those books. Although, I was not drawn to the motorcycle club idea because honestly it just doesn’t appeal to me but I was willing to give it a try because I am a fan of Christine Feehan’s works. At the start of Judgment Road I was thinking […]

Novella Review: Derailed by Genevieve Iseult Eldredge

Derailed is a prequel to Moribund in the Circuit Fae series and it definitely grabbed my attention and my imagination. Syl Skye is a high schooler who doesn’t quite fit in. She has her own style and doesn’t seem to care about what her group of friends care about, with the exception of violin sensation Euphoria. That is the one thing they can all agree on, she is awesome. Syl […]

Review: City of Endless Night by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child

City of Endless Night is the seventeenth book in the Pendergast series and it was a thrilling read! The start of this story snagged my interest mostly because I was wondering what the heck the kids had to do with anything related to the story. That was until they discovered a body in the oddest of places and the victim’s head was nowhere to be found. Then I was very […]

Review with Excerpt & Giveaway: Cowboy Stole My Heart by Soraya Lane

Review: Cowboy Stole My Heart is the first book in the River Ranch series and it was exactly what I was expecting and that made me happy. This is a book that I loved and series I am absolutely going to continue reading! The characters in this book were memorable and the kind of characters I would want more of. They were flawed, honest, witty, sarcastic and even the animals in […]

Review: The Rogue is Back in Town by Anna Bennett

In The Rogue is Back in Town, Lord Samuel Travis is the typical second son of a nobleman who had no real responsibilities in life and saw to it to enjoy himself. Unfortunately, he had made a muck of things one too many times and now he was being cut off. Sam had blown his many chances to prove that he could be responsible and his elder brother was giving […]

Review: A Wedding At Two Love Lane by Kieran Kramer

A Wedding at Two Love Lane is the second book in the Two Love Lane series and I really liked Greer and Ford’s characters in this story. Greer may have worked at an agency that brought love into the lives of their clients but Greer herself had accepted that maybe love was not for her. After all she had already had the perfect guy but she knew that he was […]

Review: The Wicked Vampire by Kate Baxter

I read The Wicked Vampire with the mind frame of it being a stand-alone romance. It is the sixth book in the Last True Vampire series though and there is an overarching storyline the flows through this story as well as a romance between Sasha Ivanov and Liam Brún. I did not feel lost at any point in my reading of The Wicked Vampire. The Author does a great job […]

Review: Rugged Texas Cowboy by Lora Leigh

Rugged Texas Cowboy contains two novellas in one book. The first novella is titled Cowboy and the Captive and the second novella is titled Cowboy and the Thief. I will be honest and say that I set the book down after about twenty percent into the first novella and declared it a book that I was not going to finish. I picked this book back up again the next day though […]

Review with Excerpt: Flame in the Dark by Faith Hunter

Flame in the Dark was such a fun read for me! I love the paranormal investigation team PSYLed Unit 18 and in this story, they are back and in full swing. This story starts out smack dab in the middle of an investigation. There had just been a shooting at a senator’s house and Nell is cutting her teeth as a full-fledged probationary paranormal investigator. Nell is officially done with […]

Review: To the Duke, with Love by Amelia Grey

To the Duke, with Love is the second book in The Rakes of St. James series. The premise of this series is that a group of rather rakish friends were reading a book called ‘A Proper Gentleman’s Guide to Wooing the Perfect Lady’ for a lark and they decided that there were going to do a prank. They wrote to twelve girls individually who were going to be having their […]

Review: The Devil of Dunakin Castle by Heather McCollum

The Devil of Dunakin Castle is the fourth book in the Highland Isles series but can absolutely be read as a standalone. In this story Grace Ellington was a woman who longed to prove herself courageous and strong. She was unable to do so though because she had a reputation for being quite the opposite and no one who knew her was willing look past her reputation. When an opportunity […]
