faye.jpgI’ve been covered over with large quantities of visiting extended family, baking, cleaning, cooking (can you say Christmas Tamales?¬† I knew you could), and general holiday madness – not to mention trying to find time to meet Sybil to shift some books from her car to my car.¬† As a result I haven’t had time to write full blown reviews of a few books.¬† So here’s a quick run down of what I’ve been reading.¬† I promise I’ll try to get to full reviews of all three books shortly…¬†

Book CoverHighland Sinner by Hannah Howell
Historical paranormal romantic suspense released by Zebra 1 Dec 08

Another of those “reformed rake” stories that I love so well.¬† Also a good murder mystery.¬† An historical with more paranormal elements than usually present in her books.¬† Good Hannah Howell, even with all the “dinnae” and “och” to wade thru.¬† Nice romance and a very excellent heroine.

Grade: B+

Book CoverThe Flame (The Sons of Destiny, Book 7) by Jean Johnson
Fantasy romance released by Berkley Trade/Sensation 2 Dec 08

Good story but so-so romance.¬† It took too long to start the actual relationship.¬† This was much more a “fantasy” than a “romance”.¬† Here’s hoping the 8th and final book in the series, The Mage, gives us more meat on the romantic bones.

Grade: C+

Book CoverMurder Game (GhostWalkers, Book 7) by Christine Feehan
Contemporary paranormal romantic suspense released by Jove 30 Dec 08

Oh my goodness.¬† Terrific Ghostwalker novel.¬† Really hot romance, good heroine, hot alpha hero, hot sensuality (had to look at the cover to make sure I wasn’t reading Lora Leigh), excellent romantic suspense elements, excellent action.¬† All around good book.¬† I don’t think you’d even have to read the previous GW books to like it; it stands well on its own. Pacing was excellent and never a dull moment.¬† Loved it.

Grade: A
