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 […]

Review: Artemis by Andy Weir

At first blush I was geeking out while reading Artemis. The attention paid to the details of the colony on the moon was fascinating. I could absolutely see the setting as it was meant to be. I loved the start of this book. Then when I read more about Jazz Bashara and her shenanigans I was definitely not that enthused about continuing to read Artemis at that point. I liked […]

Review: Out of the Ordinary by Jen Turano

Out of the Ordinary is the second book in the Apart from the Crowd series and I absolutely loved that this book included the original cast of characters from book one. I love it when a cast of characters are developed and then they are carried through a series, it just adds to the overall story for me. This story though was focused on the relationship between Gertrude Cadwalader and Harrison […]

Review, Excerpt & Giveaway: Hard Breaker by Christine Warren

Review: In the beginning, there was the Light and the Darkness. Over time the Darkness shaped itself into the form of Seven Demons who were bent on the destruction of humanity and bringing the world to its knees. The Light created the Guardians who could be called upon in times of trouble and the Wardens who would communicate and awaken the guardians. For centuries, the Guardians would rise and destroy […]

Review: Perfect Gravity by Vivien Jackson

Perfect Gravity picks up where its prequel, Wanted and Wired, ended. These two stories slightly overlap each other, so I was already familiar with the characters Kellen Hockley and Angela Neko. Although I did not know their backstories and history together. So, I was very excited to read the story behind them and I just adored Kellen’s character. I didn’t think I was going to like Angela’s character, but I most […]

Review: No Other Duke Will Do by Grace Burrowes

No Other Duke Will Do is the third book in the Windham Brides series and it was a charming story that was hilarious, witty, and had an unusual romance. Julian St. David was not interested in having a wife, he couldn’t even afford one if he wanted too. He was left with a legacy of debt resulting from one too many book purchases made by his predecessors and has been […]

Review & Excerpt: Leopard’s Blood by Christine Feehan

Leopard’s Blood is a sizzling story packed with sensuality! Sonia Lopez was on the run after a failed attempt on her life and had made her way to a small Louisiana town where she lived alone. She had purchased a piece of property that backed up to a swamp and it was perfect for her Leopard counterpart to run free in. Sonia had been ignorant to the fact that she was […]

In this story, Juliet Langley’s ex-fiancé, Scott O’Malley, the total douche who had started all of Juliet’s troubles came back into her life from out of nowhere. He also received a less than welcome reception from Juliet. He was looking for Juliet’s help but why should she help him? He had stolen all her […]

Review: The Trouble with Twelfth Grave by Darynda Jones

My anticipation for The Trouble with Twelfth Grave was filled with excitement and a twinge of reluctance. I was expecting that once again Charley or Reyes would be holding back a big secret that, if only they had been honest with each other, would not have led to landing in hot water. Phewww, this story was really, really good! Love Charley, she is better than ever! As always, I love […]

Let’s just start this review with saying do you not just love the cover for The Christmas Cowboy Hero?! Definitely a case of love at first sight for me! Clayton East was also a yummy character who had a great heart. Although he was not the same man he was before he left for the military he was still a good man. At the start of this story, he was […]

🎄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: Grigori by Lauren Smith

At the start of Grigori, Madelyn Haynes is in Russia trying to salvage her career and reputation. She was that person who was convinced that at some point in history dragons had to have been real and went a little above and beyond in trying to convince others. Now Madelyn had three months to either find the proof that she needs or she would have to drop her research entirely […]

Review: Old Scores by Will Thomas

I really enjoyed that this book was titled Old Scores as it was indeed a book about settling old scores. Cyrus Barker was an enigma of a man and in this installment readers will learn more about Cyrus’s history and how his past and present collide in a drastic way. In addition, there is also a nice mystery, character growth, a little bit of romance, and a surprise ending to keep […]

No one was more entranced with the idea of finding the treasure of Gray Wolf Island than a teenager named Sadie. She has spent her entire youth dreaming about finding the treasure with her sister, but it was not meant to be for Sadie. Sadie and her […]
