Audio Review: Lucifer’s Daughter – Eve Langlais

Audio Review: Lucifer’s Daughter – Eve Langlais

Lucifer’s Daughter is Fun, feisty and with enough action to keep you compelled and immersed in the story from start to finish. Any time I pick up a Langlais book, I’m pretty sure I’ll get lots of humor, lots of sexy hotness, and a good story to entertain me. That’s also what I got with Lucifer’s Daughter, Muriel was a hoot, and her being a virgin made dear old daddy Satan mad! She really needed to sin more – if not, people might think he was failing at being bad. Muriel had decided to wait for love before sharing herself fully, though, both because a lot of guys would do anything to tap Lucifer’s Daughter… and others would do anything to […]

Review: Hidden Heat – Carla Swafford

Review: Hidden Heat – Carla Swafford

Hidden Heat is a fast-paced romantic suspense that unfolds in the midst of a criminal MC, and where the heroine should stay far away, but she wants to keep her brother safe. The danger lurking everywhere in Hidden Heat kept me on the edge of my seat, and the absolute hotness between Cassidy and Thorn sweetened the deal! Cassidy did get on my nerves a little at times, though – she never really thought things through – especially if she was upset about something. And she was that. Quite often, too. She would go off on people she’d be much better off not even talking to in the first place, and she put herself and others in danger when she […]

Review: Dangerous Surrender – Katie Reus

Review: Dangerous Surrender – Katie Reus

Dangerous Surrender is a fast-paced romantic suspense, and it kept me second-guessing things all along, while I was cheering for the heroine to get ahead. The suspense was keeping me all wired from the very first sentence of Dangerous Surrender, I had no idea why Taylor had put on a power-suit and went into work early, and from there on, things happened fast! And there was definitely a real danger as she saw her boss, mentor and friend get killed in cold blood – due to what she had brought into the office to discuss with him that day. On the run, Taylor’s first thoughts were to go to the police. Good thing she was a little paranoid and avoided […]

Review: Highland Heat – Jennifer Haymore

Review: Highland Heat – Jennifer Haymore

Highland Heat had a fantastic balance of hot romance and heady mystery, and it kept me interested and flipping the pages fast! Not everyone can pull of a historical romance heroine who actually helps out at the battleground of Waterloo, without swooning, and without really caring about propriety. Highland Heat featured such a heroine, and she was fascinating to say the least! Her name, Grace, does say it all as she showed both grace and strength as she dealt with wounded and dead soldiers. And when she discovered Duncan alive, it was all she could do to help him to his feet and to see a doctor. Of course, him being a Scottish sheep-farmer, and she a British noble didn’t […]

Blogtour Review: Cowboys Don’t Come Out – Tara Lain

Blogtour Review: Cowboys Don’t Come Out – Tara Lain

Welcome to my stop on the Cowboys Don’t Come Out tour! I just love Tara Lain’s stories, and this one was no different – prepare to be swooned! Cowboys Don’t Come Out is such a sweet and tender story! And Lain managed to bring so many truths into it, while using the characters to move the story along, too. Rand and Kai are both cowboys, and they both think they can’t let anyone know they’re gay – for different reasons. Kai is quite the mystery, and apart from the fact that he works at the stables at the hotel Rand is spending Christmas in Hawaii, it takes a while for both Rand and the readers to get to know him. […]

Review: The Duke’s Accidental Wife – Erica Ridley

Review: The Duke’s Accidental Wife – Erica Ridley

The Duke’s Accidental Wife had a lot of sweetness inside, even if there was quite a bit of sadness as well, because the protagonists didn’t really understand each other at first. The Dukes of War series is a really good one, and I loved getting to know Ravenwood better! He has been quite present in the prior books in the series, and I thought he was a stuck-up bore. Alas, I was wrong, he really proved that he has a big heart and a lot of sensibility in The Duke’s Accidental Wife. He wasn’t only honourable and firm, he was also very loving – and lovable – as he took on Catherine. Whom he thought was a scandalous airhead he […]

Review: Homecoming – Shannon Stacey

Review: Homecoming – Shannon Stacey

Homecoming is more than a romance, it’s about finding yourself when you thought you were lost forever… Both Sam and Jen were a little lost and needed direction, and the fact that both of them had best friends who were engaged to the other’s best friends made working together more than a little awkward. Especially because they knew just how much chemistry they had when they let go. Homecoming was tender and sweet, and it made me want it all for Jen and Sam, with all their baggage and the way they saw their future, it would be a rocky road, for sure. One of the things I loved about Homecoming was the theme of forgiveness. Forgiving oneself, and forgiving […]

Review: Hard to Hold – Katie Rose

Review: Hard to Hold – Katie Rose

Hard to Hold is a sweet contemporary romance in the spin-off to The Boys of Summer series, with solid characters and a good plot. Contemporary romances that include sports heroes are among my favorites, and Hard to Hold is well done, with complex characters that I wanted to spend even more time with! The romance was swoony, and Logan was toe-curling! I can’t imagine what Logan went through – out with some friends for a few beers, a woman he’d spent one night with a year before dumped a three-month old baby in his lap and told him he was the father and it was his turn to take care of Cinnamon… At least, women have 9 months to get used […]

Audioreview: Pack Challenge – Shelley Laurenston

Audioreview: Pack Challenge – Shelley Laurenston

Pack Challenge is fast paced, a bit mysterious and plenty hot and quite humorous at times. Pack Challenge was my introduction to Laurenston’s writing, and I definitely want more of her stories. I enjoyed her take on shapeshifters, and I really loved Sara from the beginning. Both her snarky relationship with her friends, and the way she interacted with the other characters made me laugh sometimes, and roll my eyes a little other times. The universe of these shifters was well done, and I am very curious as to what else will happen with the Magnus Pack in the future. The chemistry between Sara and Zach was off the chart from the beginning of Pack Challenge, and it was especially […]

Review: Infinity – Jus Accardo

Review: Infinity – Jus Accardo

Infinity had a premise that really intrigued me, but the execution left me wanting for much more… I had high hopes for Infinity, because I truly love stories with alternate universes, mystery and strong characters who know how to make a sacrifice for the greater good. Kori, Noah,Cade and Dylan didn’t really appeal to me much, though. And apart from what Noah and Cade were telling Kori, there was no actual alternate universe anywhere. And the artistic part of Kori that got me interested in her at the beginning was quickly put on the back-burner in order to get the main plot going. And the main plot was a little messy to say the least. And it made Kori less […]
