Joanna Wylde returns to the Reaper’s Motorcycle Club with the romance between a man on a mission and a woman trying to keep her head down. Gage is undercover in the town of Hallies Falls trying to get intel on the Nighthawk Raiders Motorcycle Club. Since getting close to the club involves sleeping with the president’s sister, he definitely shouldn’t be lusting after his landlady. Since Tinker Garrett is trying to stay under radar and avoid adding to her bad small-town reputation, she definitely shouldn’t be getting anywhere near her intriguing tenant. But when did anyone ever have fun doing what they should?
These are dark and turbulent times in the court of King Henry VII. Anne Boleyn is imprisoned in the tower of London accused of treason, adultery, and incest. The King has his sights set on Jane Seymour to be his next wife and queen just as soon as he’s free. He also has no qualms during this time of waiting to romp with other ladies in his court, if they will have him or not. Readers, get ready for another wild ride as Virgil and Margarie’s lustful story plays out against the backdrop of the decadent Tudor court.
I love SciFi romance, and this book was a freebie at Amazon, so I thought I’d give it a read. It’s a short story, at only 181 pages and it’s odd and quirky, and a little bit silly, but I’m going to recommend it nonetheless.
It’s been a while since a book promised everything I love – second chances! Geeky heroines! Good groveling! – and then so utterly and completely failed to deliver on any of them. I tried, gentle readers, but this is a ridiculous mess that no amusing Star Trek references can fix. Read on to find out why.
There’s something highly appealing about stories in which Hell is an endless round of bureaucracy and paperwork – not to mention targets – possibly because many of us have to deal with such inconveniences all too often in real life. This particular author’s version of Hell is made yet fascinating to readers if, not for its inhabitants, by all the other quirky details that those sentenced to an eternity of paperwork are forced to endure: the limited selection of names for the multitude of demons, the outmoded and malfunctioning technology they’re supplied on which to complete their paperwork, the shoddy accommodation they have to return to at the end of each day at the office. No wonder our hero finds excuses to visit the world above as often as possible, while generating as little additional work for himself down below as he can get away with.
For some time I have been on the fence with the increasing darkness and dominance of the ancient Carpathian warriors who star in this continuing series. Let me warn readers, however, that while Tariq seeks to temper his dominance and treat his life mate as an equal, this is a very dark read with a lot of elements of abuse and torture woven into the story. I, however, contrary to my feelings, continue to be unable to resist reading new books in the series as they are released. This book does seem to be a launching pad for a series of potentially new books that tell the story about a continued evolution in the Vampire as well as the Carpathian warriors who fight them. read more…
At the beginning of each trilogy Shiloh Walker writes, I’m happy as can be to be reading the first book, with anticipation skittering in the back of my mind of the two books yet to come. Of course, the day arrives when that last book is read, all mysteries have been solved, and love has found new favorite characters all around. Thus is the case with the McKay siblings of McKay’s Treasure. I’ve enjoyed each story, but Gideon’s and Moira’s is bittersweet amid the evil that has been following them all for months now.
What a great book! Roller Girl has all the things I love: body positivity, strong friendships between the female characters, and a sweet and sexy romance. It’s not very long, but reading it felt like taking a cool, refreshing drink of water. I am glad it exists in the world, and I want more like it!
REVIEW: Gambled Away: A Historical Anthology by Molly O’Keefe, Rose Lerner, Joanna Bourne, Jeannie Lin & Isabel Cooper
I’ve been trying to read more anthologies this year, as a way of discovering new authors, but that does mean I’m ending up with an even longer To Read list of full-length novels, as I discover yet more authors and series I want to investigate further. This collection of stories in which one or other of the main characters is won in a game of chance by another character is no exception.
I’ve said in a number of places and a number of times how much I enjoy this author. There are a couple of her stories that have bombed for me, but most of them I quite enjoy, so much so that she’s now an auto-buy author. And, although His has a different “feel” to it than most books I read, I enjoyed it enough to keep Ms. Rothert on my auto-buy list.
