Book 3 in the Enforcers series is very similar in theme and plot to the earlier two books. This time it’s Silas, Drake’s right-hand man, who takes one look at the sweet, innocent, down-on-her-luck Hayley through a security camera and succumbs. Soon Silas has her safely ensconced in an apartment carved out of his own spacious abode, content to watch over her from a distance, soothed by her exquisite violin playing that calms all his cares away. Will Silas go the way of Drake and let her become his vulnerability in the dangerous world they live in?
This has been great series and I am sorry to see it come to an end. I’m glad that Izzy and Devine got to be main characters in their very own romance after being such a great supporting cast. Their story skillfully mixes fun and laughter with grit and tears to deliver a strong emotional punch.
Night Watch is an exciting fast-paced thriller that should come with a warning label; but then again if you’re a fan, you already know that once you pick it up you wont be able to stop until you’ve reached the very end.
Kendra Michaels is grateful to Dr. Charles Waldridge and the Night Watch program for restoring her sight after a lifetime of being blind. In fact, her feelings for Dr Waldridge are a combination of love, admiration, and hero worship. So when he disappears under mysterious circumstances the night after having dinner with her, it’s inevitable that she’s going to pull out all the stops in figuring out what happened.
Paranormal Romance. Vikings! Immortal Berserkers and Norse Mythology. I’m in! Asa Maria Bradley is also a new-to-me author. I very rarely take a chance on a new paranormal series, because I find myself disappointed. Granted, I have high expectations going in, along the lines of some of the best books written in this genre, like:The Psy/Changelings by Nalini Singh, Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward, or the incomparable Christine Feehan series. I am happy to report this book lived up to my expectations and then some. It had a feeling of Feehan’s Ghostwalkers, with a touch of Lora Leigh’s Breeds, with the added bonus of Vikings and Norse mythology that made this book its own.
I don’t read a whole lot of rock star books, though there are a few authors who have written in this trope that I’ve read. So when this one popped up, despite the rather scary looking cover model, I thought, “What the heck? It’s cheap” – read FREE – “so why not give it a try?” Sometimes those are good spontaneous decisions and sometimes not. In this case, it was a Very Good Decision.
Veena’s Duckies Do Series review of The Billionaire’s Legacy Series by Marinell, Blake, Crews, Kendrick & Hewitt
Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 01 Jul 16 through 01 Feb 17
I was in the fourth grade when I first discovered Harlequin romance novels. I saw the world and learned about relationships through the pages of these books. To this day I enjoy these stories. They are my guilty pleasure that I indulge in like other women might ice cream or a bottle of wine.
I don’t particularly read series in Harlequin Presents, but this particular one caught my attention, and after I got swept into one and then the next, I went back and grabbed all the back stories to read about the “Lost Mistresses.” I think this series is more compelling because each book is authored by a different writer, giving each character a fresh and unique voice.
Tabs’ review of You Had Me at Christmas by Karina Bliss, Stephanie Doyle, Laura Florand, Jennifer Lohman & M. O’Keefe
Contemporary Romance published by Karina Bliss, Stephanie Doyle, Laura Florand, Jennifer Lohmann & M. O’Keefe 17 Oct 16
This self-pubbed holiday anthology features contemporary holiday romances with marriages in trouble, lonely souls, desperate road-trips, heartbreaking reunions, and family struggles. It’s a nice anthology with some really great authors. One story was a complete knock out of the park for me. One story had frustrating editorial issues. I’d consider this a mixed bag, but for a price of $0.99, it’s easily worth the gems in the mix.
Today is the best day to take advantage of the $1.99 sale going on at Harlequin.
It is Friday and any Harlequin!Whore knows Friday is Free Book Day! Today buy two Harlequins and get the third book free. The code is OCTFUN and it is good until 10/21/16 at 11:59 ET. Friday buy 2 get 1 sale is over but there are still tons of books for $1.99!
I just came off a reading high. While I love when I read a book that stays with me, it does some serious damage to my reading mojo. I have been picking up books, reading a few chapters and putting my kindle down. Lucky for me I was on twitter and I noticed that Harlequin was having a huge $1.99 sale. Sometimes when I am in a reading slump, I tend to re-read oldies but goodies. This time I decided I would pick a Harlequin off my huge TBR pile. I’m glad I did.
Although I have a great theoretical love for motorcycle romances, the Reapers series is one of the few to have both grabbed and kept my attention. Overall, I’ve preferred the books with more mature heroines to those with younger couples, and so this particular story appealed to me from the start. We’ve met Tinker and Gage already and seen some of their interactions alongside Painter and Melanie’s story. Now the two take centre stage, giving us the chance to see Tinker as a woman trying to come to terms with her past and build a life for herself back in the town where she grew up. Not that she’s desperately keen to stay there, but family commitments and a failed marriage have forced her into a corner with few other escape possibilities.
