Veena’s review of Silence of the Wolf (Werewolves, Book 13) by Terry Spear Paranormal Romance published by Sourcebooks Casablanca 04 Mar 14 I’ve read and enjoyed many books by Terry Spear before, but this one did not do anything for me.

Liviania’s review of Full-Blood Half-Breed by Cleve Lamison Fantasy published by Hydra 11 Mar 14 I’ve been watching the Penguin Random House eBook imprints tentatively since the initial furor over the contract terms.  (Which did, apparently, get resolved quickly.)  But I hadn’t dipped my toes in until the blurb of Full-Blood Half-Breed made me want [...]

Saturday, February 1, 2014 0:00 No Comments

Stevie‘s review of Hard As It Gets (Hard Ink, Book 1) by Laura Kaye Contemporary Military Romance published by Avon 26 Nov 13 The blurb on this one’s a little misleading, since the hero is one of the survivors of a botched mission which led to his and his comrades’ disgrace and dismissal, while their [...]

Stevie‘s review of The Marriage Wager by Jane Ashford Historical Romance published by Sourcebooks Casablanca 05 Nov 13 I wanted to like this book, and the set-up in the first chapter promises even more than the blurb and the title do (although I do find myself wondering who was looking after the hero’s properties while he [...]

Stevie‘s review of Lady Jenny’s Christmas Portrait (Windham Series, Book 8) by Grace Burrowes Historical Romance published by Sourcebooks Casablanca 24 Sep 13 It’s taken me a while to decide how to grade this book.

Veena’s review of Crave (Billionaire Bachelors Club, Book 2) by Monica Murphy Erotic Romance published by Avon Impulse 13 Aug 13 Crave is the latest entry in the crush du jour of all things erotic and billionaire bachelors.

REVIEW: Detained by Ainslie Paton

Saturday, September 28, 2013 0:00 No Comments

LynneC’s review of Detained by Ainslie Paton Contemporary Romance published by Escape 1 Sept 13 Detained is an odd kind of book. It’s very well written in terms of style, and yet the plot lurches from incident to incident, exhausting this reader, changing direction from closed-room erotic to straight romance to prison drama to romantic suspense. [...]
