Tabs’ review of The Billionaire’s Favorite Mistake (Billionaires and Bridesmaids, Book 4) by Jessica Clare
Contemporary Romance published by Intermix 21 Jun 16
Jessica Clare returns to her Billionaires and Bridesmaids series with some unrequited love, some lousy drunken sex, an accidental pregnancy, and some Hugh-Hefner-Girls-Next-Door-esque shenanigans. Professional event planner Greer has been mooning over her friend and former college roommate Asher for many a year. When she decides that she’s finally going to make her move, things go south really fast and she decides that she is actually totally over his crap and is completely washing her hands of one Asher Sutton. An accidental pregnancy kind of throws the wrench in those plans, though!
My BFF has been not-so-subtly encouraging me to read Jenny Holiday for more than a year. I finally caved and went on an epic binge over Memorial Day weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the 49th Floor books, but I was super excited to see that the fourth book is an m/m romance featuring the cousin of the hero from The Engagement Game. Few things frustrate me more than being introduced to an interesting gay character in a romance and knowing that, unlike every other interesting side character in every romance ever written, there’s no possibility of them getting their own book because f/m is one wheelhouse and LGBT stories are another and never shall the twain mix. (I’ve noticed more authors breaking this mold lately, but it’s not common by any means). So I was just happy that this book merely existed. It having the audacity to be sexy and endearing is a total bonus.
I can’t get enough of L.H. Cosway. I discovered her just a few months ago and it’s like I’m addicted to her. And now this is the second book she’s written in collaboration with Penny Reid, and this one, as well as the first book, The Hooker and the Hermit, are just as wickedly wonderful as the books she’s written on her own
The heroine in this book is the sister of Ronan Fitzpatrick of the first book and the hero of this one is Sean Cassidy, a secondary character in the first book. In that one he was a real jerk, so this is a redemption story. Can he be turned around to someone you care about? Short answer – yes. Read on if you want more detail.
Stevie‘s review of Dilemma in Yellow Silk (Emperors Of London, Book 5) by Lynne Connolly
Historical Romance published by Lyrical Press 12 Apr 16
I’m loving my regular encounters with the Emperors of London and their various friends and relations – not to mention their enemies. So far they’ve never failed to deliver on adventure and intrigue, and, obviously, romance. I’m particularly enamoured of the glimpses we also get of differing strands of society (often with a definite small ‘s’) and how they relate and react to those in the higher echelons of Society (definitely with a capital ‘S’). This book is no exception, opening as it does with great excitement at Haxby Hall, as the servants clean the rooms and generally prepare for the return of the Marquess of Strenshall and his family.
Can you feel it in the air, Faithful Reader?? The tingle of anticipation that happens when you know a most-wanted book is available? Because Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling books are always on my Most Wanted list and I know I’m not alone! So, does her latest installment meet the very high standard of her previous books? Onward!!
Sasha and Sawyer’s magic has pointed the guardians to the Isle of Capri to begin their search for the next star. The quest gathers momentum, but the evil goddess, having lost the first battle, prepares for war and retaliation. Ms. Roberts is a gifted story teller, reeling her readers into the next chapter of the story…
This just in…
We just discovered a wonderful story by Kate Regnery that all romance lovers will thoroughly enjoy, while also benefiting those with disabilities.
One of my favourite ‘outings’ is Medieval Times Dinner Theatre. It hearkens back to my love of Medieval Romances, though it’s been a while since I’ve read one. I’ve been about five times now and I’m always open to more. With this love in mind, I started this book.
In these divisive times, with election season gearing up here in the United States for approximately the next 438 years, there’s very little that we can all agree on, except for romance novels and how awesome they are. So what better excuse than this interminable season of politicking to turn our attention to a book where the President needs a little TLC in the form of his wife and his head of security? Yes, I see that skeptical look on your face as you doubt how a book with that premise can possibly be good, because I had that look on my face until Shira Glassman set me straight. Never fear, though. This is a charming, sexy, and emotionally satisfying love story that hasn’t gotten nearly the amount of hype it deserves.
Silence has fallen, leaving the Psy-Changeling world contemplating a new future full of hope and promise. The Trinity Accord brings together disparate races and people to pave the path toward a United Earth Federation or UEF. While this is not entirely free from controversy, the Consortium is licking its wounds in the shadows and plotting. This is a not-to-be-missed pivotal launching pad for the next story arc in the series, while allowing the winners to celebrate and rest on their laurels. read more…
