Wheels Up

I’ve really enjoyed Annabeth Albert’s Out of Uniform series. She’s done a great job linking the novels together while crafting fresh and special individual stories and romantic relationships in each one.  This time out her principals find themselves fighting their attraction and love for each ...

Hamilton's Battalion: A Trio of Romances

It is rare when all the stories of an anthology please, but Hamilton's Battalion is one such collection. It's an inspiring book for our time and one of the most heartwarming and hopeful books I've read this year. These novellas are set during the Revolutionary War in the year 1781 when Colonel A ...

Count the Shells

Count the Shells, by new-to-me author, Charlie Cochrane, is the sixth entry in Riptide Publishing’s Porthkennack series of standalone romances that are linked by virtue being set in and around the fictional Cornish town of the same name.  The series boasts a mixture of contemporary and historical ...

An Unsuitable Heir

I freely admit that I’ve been chomping at the bit to get my hands on this third and final instalment of K.J. Charles’ Sins of the Cities trilogy, eager to discover who has been violently disposing of anyone with knowledge of the missing heir to the Moreton earldom and to find out how all the pie ...

Foxglove Copse

Foxglove Copse is the fifth book in Riptide Publishing’s Porthkennack universe, and in my opinion it’s the best so far. The books in the Porthkennack series are all standalones, set in and around the Cornish town of the same name, and this one, written by Alex Beecroft, includes all the elements ...

Illegal Contact

Illegal Contact marks Mr. Hassell’s first foray into sports romance, and it’s a truly engaging and compelling read.  In it, an intimidating, world famous athlete, benched for bad behavior off the field, more than meets his match when he hires a personal assistant who doesn’t care who he is or ...

Barrel Proof

Note:  Because this is the final book in a trilogy with an overarching storyline, there will be spoilers for the other books in this review. Barrel Proof, the third and final instalment in Layla Reyne's Agents Irish and Whiskey trilogy of romantic suspense novels, picks up pretty much where Cas ...

Dirty Deeds

Dirty Deeds is the first book in HelenKay Dimon’s new Dirty series (which is a kind of sequel to her earlier Tough Love series).  The books are vaguely connected by the CIA and Black ops agents involved in each story, but they can all be read as stand alone novels. The men in this series take on ...

Spectred Isle

Spectred Isle -  a title playing on words from Shakespeare’s Richard II – is the first book in a new series based around the natural magic of the English Green Man myth and it’s written by K.J. Charles. Do I need to say more? Okay, that was a rhetorical question. In short, it’s a fantastic ...

House of Cards

House of Cards is the fourth book in the Porthkennack series that comprises both contemporary and historical novels set around the town of Porthkennack in Cornwall. All the novels are written by different authors; and while I do like the idea of asking a variety of writers to write stories set aroun ...
