Since I enjoyed the first two books in this series, reading this one was a given. Add in a virgin hero and it was a move to the top of the pile. What is it about a virgin hero that makes him so appealing anyway?
I freely admit growing up history was not something I enjoyed. At all. Yes, I listened in school and I know the big moments of the world, but when it comes to those moments that shape citizens in other countries, I’m one of those ignorant folk. But with the bloom of my passion for genealogy about five or six years ago, I’ve now picked up the love of history. This is Genevieve Graham’s third book delving into catastrophic moments of Canadian history, giving me lessons to broaden my minuscule knowledge of her country, all amid the romance I love to read.
Logan Callahan is extremely unhappy when he’s asked to rescue Rachael Kline from a Las Vegas jail cell shortly after she left him alone in his bed, after a spectacular night between the sheets. Things go from bad to worse when he finds a professional gunman has Rachael between his sights and he’s going to have to come up with some fancy footwork to keep her alive and kicking. How did things turn from sugar to shit within such a short time? read more…
Heads up, all!! This one is a freebie at Amazon and very well worth the price. One of the things that beats a free book is a free book that’s really good, and I so enjoyed this one.
I absolutely love this romance full of delicious characters and sweet, steamy moments. read more…
Riptide has had some problems of late, and I really hope that the management changes put in place as a response enable the press to keep going and to carry on turning out a diverse range of books and series by authors I already enjoy, as well as those I am yet to investigate. The Porthkennack series is currently a firm favourite of mine and one of the only ones for which I will consistently pre-order new additions. This latest contemporary novel revisits two characters from JL Merrow’s previous book in the series and brings them from the background cast to centre stage – while also updating us on her previous heroes and introducing us to more of the town’s landmarks and history.
Kristie J’s review of Loving the Secret Billionaire (Love at Last, Book 1) by Adriana Anders
Contemporary Romance published by Adriana Anders 19 Apr 18
Normally I tend to avoid any book with the word billionaire or millionaire or C.E.O. or any of those kinds of titles. As soon as I see the hero is a boss or rich or anything like that, I Very Quickly skip them. I’m a blue-collar hero fan, no matter what genre. But when I read the outline of this book and having read this author’s Blank Canvas series and loving them, I thought I’d give it a try. And I’m ever so glad that I did. I enjoyed every word in this book.
Two fun contemporary romances packaged into one book from favorite Ms. Chase.
This series has been getting steadily better as it’s progressed. That said, it feels to me very much as three parts of a whole, rather than a trilogy that can be dipped into at random (I could have done with more hours in the day, in order to reread the first two before reviewing this one). This finale shows us the progress of the two couples we’ve already met, as well as giving us a new pair to cheer for, along with yet more glimpses into how the various gods are adapting to their new circumstances as power bases shift and some gain followers, while others lose out due to the realignment of human beliefs in the face of absolute proof. There’s a further increase in the numbers and vehemence of those humans who just wish the gods would go away and stop messing up the status quo, leading to an even stronger coalition between the atheists and those whose belief worked far better when the gods weren’t telling them directly to be awesome to each other. Meanwhile, some former believers and agnostics are suffering information overload and have no idea what belief system to follow in the face of the various gods’ media presences and marketing campaigns. These last present somewhat of a problem for Dani Morana – Death herself – whose job it is to shepherd souls to whichever afterlife is most fitting.
This dark series featuring the Special Crimes Unit has chilled its way through small towns in and around North Carolina. This time psychics are summoned to Prosperity to stand witness to a horrific crime wave that is sweeping this hithertofore seemingly calm and prosperous town.
It’s no coincidence that Prosperity is at the center of a grid of the SCU’s recent cases. Get ready to come face to face with things that go bump in the night and raise the hair on your arms.
