These four reviews are quick quack reviews by Liviania of the newest two books in two series: Jocelynn Drake’s Dark Days and Seanan McGuire’s October Daye books.
Liviania’s review of Bespelling Jane Austen by Mary Balogh, Colleen Gleason, Susan Krinard, and Janet Mullany Paranormal Romance published by HQN 28 Sep 10 I feel like I should love mash-ups since I love classic literature and horror stories. So far I’ve been disappointed by most of the ones I’ve read. The four authors in [...]
Sandy M’s review of Blood on Silk (Awakened by Blood, Book 1) by Marie Treanor Urban Fantasy published by NAL Trade 7 Sep 10 I’ve finally found that good vampire story I’ve been looking for lately. I’ve been putting vampire book after vampire book aside, they just didn’t pique my interest. But after receiving a [...]
Liviania’s Quick Quack Reviews of one science fiction romance and three urban fantasy novels by Cameron Haley, Ilona Andrews, Katherine Allred, and Phaedra Weldon.
LynneC’s review of Trial By Desire by Courtney Milan Historical Romance released by HQN Books 01 September 10 Courtney Milan has written a highly enjoyable book that almost sold me on the Victorian era. I dislike the Victorian era. It’s a personal prejudice, born of many things, but mainly the namby-pamby, hypocritical way they went [...]
Lynne Connolly’s review of Unworldly Secretary, Untamed Greek by Kim Lawrence Contemporary romance published by Mills and Boon Modern Romance 3 Sep 10 This story started badly for me when the heroine took off her glasses and didn’t seem to need them anymore. As a glasses-wearer, I hate that. I’m helpless without mine, and although [...]
Dinca’s review of Indecent & Wicked by Tori Carrington Contemporary romance reissued by Harlequin Showcase 1 Sep 2010 Tori Carrington has done it again. I always enjoy her (their) stories. Of these two, I can’t even begin to tell you which one I liked best, Indecent or Wicked. They both had my full attention from page one. Although they [...]
Ash’s review of Siren Song (Blood Singer Series, Book 2) by Cat Adams Urban Fantasy released by Tor 28 SEP 10 I really enjoyed the first book, and for some reason I put off reading this one. I think I worried it wouldn’t be as good or things would happen to annoy me. Turns out [...]
Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of Deserted Island, Dreamy Ex by Nicola Marsh Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Romance 14 Sep 10 Ever had a relationship just “stop” as opposed to “end?” The difference, and an important one, is the distinct lack of closure. Nicola Marsh explores how that can effect a person in her [...]
Sandy M’s review of A Hellion in Her Bed (Hellions of Halstead Hall, Book 2) by Sabrina Jeffries Historical Romance published by Pocket Star 1 Sep 10 I have a feeling a few of you — hell, maybe scores of you — are going to call me crazy after reading this review. I even had [...]
Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of Wedding Date With The Best Man (Girls’ Weekend in Vegas #4) by Melissa McClone Contemporary romance released by Harlequin Romance 14 Sep 2010 I’m a romance reader who will travel all over the map (just kisses to smokin’ hot lovin’!), but there has been nothing more gratifying to me [...]
Wendy the Super Librarian‘s review of Surrender to an Irish Warrior by Michelle Willingham Historical medieval romance released by Harlequin Historical 01 Sep 2010 I haven’t read Michelle Willingham’s entire backlist yet, but I’m at the point where I’m getting pretty darn close. So I feel fairly confident when I say that her latest Harlequin [...]
Gwen’s review of Bayou Moon (The Edge, Book 2) by Ilona Andrews Fantasy romance released by Ace 28 Sep 10 Ever wonder where the term “redneck” comes from? In Texas, it has a very different meaning than in other parts of the country. No matter where you live, though, being called a redneck is not [...]
Lady of Light and Shadows is the second half of C.L. Wilson’s original 1,000-page manuscript. That’s one of the reasons (a 1,000-page manuscript from a new author being another) her Tairen Soul series was rejected several times before finally being published. At that time, C.L., in her wildest dreams, never imagined her book would go [...]
Liviania’s review of Venom (Elemental Assassin, Book 3) by Jennifer Estep Urban fantasy released by Pocket 28 Sept 10 Venom is the second book I read recently that I thought was the end of a trilogy instead of just the third in an ongoing series. It made me sad when I realized the ongoing plot [...]
