Heat Seeker

Military-themed romances tend to have a few key components: a very protective alpha hero; a feisty heroine, usually from the hero’s past; and a tight-knit team of soldiers. Heat Seeker has all these things, and yet doesn’t seem clichéd or overdone. Okay, maybe a bit clichéd, but it’s still a ...

Dragon's Moon

Despite loving to reread books, I have a strange quirk. If I start a series in the middle, I rarely go back and reread others from the series. Because of that, I put off reading Dragon’s Moon hoping for time to read the previous books first. I never found the time, so I had to jump into this serie ...

Moon Craving

As Faux Historical Paranormal Werewolf tales go, this one resides somewhere just a teensy bit short of smack dab in the middle of the grading curve. As far as time setting goes, it’s murky, but I’m guessing about the 12th century. Not that it really matters because if historic ...

Watch Over Me

Meet Dr. Lana Ericson, Project Manager for Material Transformation at Environmental Technology Research and Design, a research lab in southern California. Lana’s a genius of sorts and in her scientific research has developed enzymes that enhance the yield from edible crops. However, word’s out ...

The Spy Who Wants Me

The Spy Who Wants Me is the third release in The Goddard Project series featuring covert operatives for a secret government agency. I didn’t read book two, but I remember the first book, Satisfaction Guaranteed, being a much more enjoyable read than this latest installment. Elle ...

Satisfaction Guaranteed

I have enjoyed several of Lucy Monroe's books and Satisfaction Guaranteed proves to me that she is a very dependable author. I can count on her for a good story with interesting characters, which is my criterion for an "auto-buy." The only flaw here is that the book is plot-lite, but Ethan and Beth ...

Moon Awakening

Lucy Monroe really sets the stage in Moon Awakening with an interesting background for her shapeshifters. The mighty Picts with their blue tattoos are more than legendary warriors; their tattoos identify the animal they can become. Their king betrayed them, and they eventually joined the clans in Sc ...

C+
Take Me

Well, I’m on the fence about this one. While Lucy Monroe has a nice enough style and feel for the period, nothing much seems to happen in this book. And, since I didn’t get all that caught up in the characters either, Take Me is a book I ultimately can take or leave. I haven’t read the pr ...

D
Tempt Me

This is the second book of a trilogy in Lucy Monroe's first attempt at writing historicals. I read the first book, Touch Me, and gave it a C in my personal database, but thought Monroe showed some promise. Reading Tempt Me changed my mind about that. To get out of marrying a man old enough to ...

And Able

And Able is the last in a trilogy of books about heroes who are former mercenaries (and if you can't guess the titles of the first two books in the series you must be a newbie to romance novels). The hero is a hot and studly lone wolf, rather like one of those hot and studly lone wolves that Linda ...
