Deadly Sexy

I have long been a fan of Beverly Jenkins, but I have to say that Deadly Sexy, while at times entertaining, is not one of her best books. <!-- var browName = navigator.appName; var SiteID = 1; var ZoneID = 4; var browDateTime = (new Date()).getTime(); if (browName=='Netscape') { docu ...

Suspect

Suspect is the second in a trilogy that explores the effects of a man’s bigamy on both his families. It’s very much a part of a larger story and doesn’t stand alone very well. As a mystery, it was rather mediocre and as a romance, it was tepid as could be. Ron Raven was a rich and succes ...

On the Loose

A Jeep in the El Salvadoran jungle is not the most typical place for two people to fall in love, but that’s where it happens in Tara Janzen’s On The Loose. This novel is fast-paced and suspenseful, but falls short on several points. Four months after an incredible night with socialite Honey Yo ...

To the Limit

To the Limit is the second book in Gerard’s Bodyguards series and since my colleagues have reviewed a couple of the most recent books, I’m backtracking a little and filling in a blank. The first book featured Nolan Garrett and in this installment his twin sister, Eve, tackles danger and love as ...

Edge of Midnight

I may have enjoyed Edge of Midnight by Shannon McKenna when I was a teenager. The book would have been passed around the lunch table and we would have giggled at the sex scenes, feeling very grown up and daring, even slightly shocked at the positions and the language. Now, many years later, I stil ...

Unlucky

Last year I enjoyed Jana DeLeon’s debut novel, Rumble on the Bayou, very much indeed and considered it the best mystery I read in 2006. So I looked forward very much to reading her second romance/mystery, Unlucky, and I was not disappointed. Mallory Devereaux from Royal Flush, Lou ...

Behind Closed Doors

I thoroughly enjoyed this book to the point where I could not put it down to attend to such routine things like eating. I was riveted from the first page to the last. This second book in Quinn’s Ivory Nation trilogy should go on everyone’s must buy list. Botanist Laura Clark and her history p ...

Overkill

Overkill is a romantic suspense thriller that sucks you into its pages with realistic and vivid descriptions. Castillo shows her talent at portraying genuine emotions and adeptly tackles difficult situations. I settled into the story easily and found this book hard to put down. Marty Hogan live ...

Ice Storm

Luck has been on my side recently, as I have read several books that I’ve truly enjoyed. Ice Storm will join the ranks at the top. I devoured it as quickly as I possibly could, neglecting chores, meals, and my husband. This will not be a story for everyone, however – it features a dark romanc ...

Cut Throat

Cut Throat is the second in a series, and evidently begins practically where Nine Lives left off. Sala fills in the back story very well and I wasn’t lost a bit. Instead, the book immediately pulled me in; I liked it so well I will probably follow the series. Cat Dupree is a bounty hunter. She is ...
