Fish on a Bicycle

Jackson Rivers and Ellery Cramer are back – perhaps a little the worse for wear - in this fifth instalment of Amy Lane’s Fish Out of Water series, and they’re starting a new chapter of their lives.  After being shot, stabbed and almost poisoned to death during their pursuit of Carl Lacey, the ...

Cold Conspiracy

When I first started reviewing for AAR, I reviewed mostly historical romance - which has always been my favourite genre – and added in the odd romantic suspense title here and there for a bit of variety.  These days I read a lot more RS, although most of it is m/m, as I have found only a small nu ...

Declination

Note: This is a series featuring overarching plotlines so there will be spoilers for the previous books in this review. I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of Declination, the third book in Gregory Ashe’s terrific Borealis Investigations series featuring private investigators North McKinn ...

The Mysterious Stranger

Since romances set with cults as backgrounds are among my least favorite books to read (that and serial killer stories rank in my top two of Nope!), there are few authors whose books I would even consider with that type of plotline.

State of Lies

In a genre inundated with unreliable and unlikable narrators, it was refreshing to read State of Lies and find myself immediately rooting for the heroine. Set in Washington D.C. and revolving around the highest levels of the American government, this novel serves as a timely reminder of just how pre ...

Triangulation

Gregory Ashe has become one of my favourite authors over the last year or so, and I’ve been longing to dive into Triangulation, the second book in his Borealis Investigations series ever since I turned the last page on the first book, Orientation, earlier this year.  I’m addicted to the blend o ...

Under Currents

Since I first discovered her work in the summer of 1997, I've looked forward to Nora Roberts' standalone romantic suspense titles every year. Not all of them end up on my keeper shelf, but each of them has brought me an overall feeling of warmth and comfort, sort of like being wrapped in a fuzzy bla ...
