REVIEW: The Reluctant Highlander by Amanda Scott

Book CoverVeena’s review of The Reluctant Highlander by Amanda Scott
Historical Romance published by Open Road Media Romance 13 Jun 17

I don’t believe I’ve missed a book by Ms. Scott.  As my tastes have moved away from historical romance and some of the authors I once read have dropped away, Ms. Scott still remains on my list of authors I enjoy reading.  Against a backdrop of warring highland clans and alliances made and broken, she brings us a tender romance between a highland man and a lowland lass. read more…

REVIEW: Forgotten Promises by Jessica Lemmon

Book CoverKristie J’s review of Forgotten Promises by Jessica Lemmon
Contemporary Romance published by Loveswept 19 Jan 16

I’m not sure what brought this book to my attention.  I have a feeling I saw it mentioned in a tweet.  Although I have a couple other books by this author, I haven’t read them yet but decided to give this one a try.

Warning though, this is very tough subject matter so it may not be for everyone and it may be a trigger for some.

REVIEW: On Point by Annabeth Albert

Book CoverStevie‘s review of On Point (Out of Uniform, Book 3) by Annabeth Albert
Gay Military Romance published by Carina Press 01 Jun 17

Annabeth Albert’s military romance series has enchanted and delighted me even more than did the Gaymers series from which it was spun off. Having been introduced to the various members of the community living around the base in the first two books, this time we get to visit a pair who featured prominently in the second book, though always as slightly angsty friends rather than as a couple.

REVIEW: The Silk Weaver’s Wife by Debbie Rix

Book CoverVeena’s review of The Silk Weaver’s Wife by Debbie Rix
Women’s Fiction published by Bookouture 19 Jul 17

I expected to enjoy this book when I requested it from NetGalley. What  I did not expect was to be half the night in the middle of my work week reading the book from cover to cover.  The two women who span centuries could not be more different and yet each one fascinated me in her own unique way.

I enjoyed the detailed background and research almost as much I enjoyed the story itself.  Like many of you out there, I thought China dominated the silk industry, only to learn all about Italy and England and the mark they left on silk-weaving techniques and designs. read more…

REVIEW: Look Behind You by Iris Johansen and Ray Johansen

Book CoverVeena’s review of Look Behind You (Kendra Michaels, Book 5) by Iris Johansen and Roy Johansen
Suspense Thriller published by St. Martins Press 18 Jul 17 

This story starts with an unknown young woman who takes an Uber rider with a killer.  Being that Uber is a popular way to go place to place these days, the story starts out resonating on a personal note, because I’m a frequent Uber rider. This, of course, is just the beginning of a spine-chilling thrills-and-chills ride that will keep you guessing all the way to the end.  I couldn’t put it down. For me this is the best book yet in this series by the dynamic mother and son duo.   read more…

REVIEW: The Red by Tiffany Reisz

Book CoverTabs’ review of The Red by Tiffany Reisz
Contemporary Erotica published by Eighth Circle Press  11 Jul 17

I have read a few of Tiffany Reisz’ erotic novellas, but she writes what I would consider heavy BSDM and I have never been able to get into her longer works. This new stand-alone novella is more erotica than erotic romance and it’s also straight up bananas. I won’t lie, I picked it up for review after seeing multiple readers commenting on Twitter that the sex scenes were off the charts crazy. It’s like waving a red flag in front of a bull. I cannot resist. I have to know what I am missing. read more…

REVIEW: Dealing with Annie by Jill Shalvis

Book CoverSandy M’s review of Dealing with Annie (Cooper’s Corner, Book 17) by Jill Shalvis
Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Special Releases 27 Feb 17

I’ve been in sort of a reading slump lately – everything I pick up to read just falls flat and I’m quickly searching for something else. So when I came across this Jill Shalvis book, I settled in because I knew her story would finally work for me and hopefully get me back on track.

REVIEW: Tempting Fate by Pamela Clare

Book CoverKristie J’s review of Tempting Fate (Colorado High Country, Book 4) by Pamela Clare
Contemporary Romance published by Amazon Digital Service 28 Jun 17

I have been reading Ms. Clare’s books from the very beginning, back to 2003 when Sweet Release was first published, and I have every book she’s written since then.  I try my very best to be objective when doing a review, but when it comes to Pamela Clare, I can’t be.  So read this review knowing a lot of personal feelings are involved.  I’ve met her and call her a friend and she is one of the best people I’ve ever met.  So this is influenced with a great deal of fondness for Pamela colouring it.
