Archangel's Viper

I’ve probably re-read each of Nalini Singh’s books at least once. Between the Psy-Changeling, Guild Hunter, and Rock Hard series she’s written thirty novels and novellas -so... yeah, that’s a lot of time I’ve spent in her worlds. So be warned - unbiased as I try to be, this review of Archa ...

The Woman Who Couldn't Scream

It was a struggle to read The Woman Who Couldn’t Scream. It’s difficult to describe exactly what bothered me about the book, but it was at least in part because things moved so fast and jumped around so much that I often felt out-of-sync with the romance. It was as though I’d skipped paragraph ...

Montana Heat: Escape to You

There’s something so compelling about an escape story, don’t you think? The joy as someone held captive is returned to the world and reunited with their family gets me every time. That was the big draw of Escape to You when I picked it up for review, but unfortunately, while I enjoyed the drama ...

Indigo Lake

I picked up Indigo Lake for review because I’ve read Jodi Thomas before and liked her work. Not so much that I follow her release schedule closely, but enough that when I saw she had something new coming out, I felt comfortable grabbing it without digging deeply into the synopsis. In other words, ...

Revenge

I have been eagerly anticipating the release of Revenge since reading Satisfaction, the second book in Lexi Blake’s Lawless series, as this is a series in which subsequent books really do build on the prior stories. By the time I actually got my hands on Revenge I was already familiar with its cha ...

Silver Silence

Every time I read a new book by Nalini Singh, I think she’s reached her peak. Few authors who have a backlist as long as hers would get such unequivocal praise from me, but after years of enjoying Ms. Singh’s world building and character building (across two series, no less!) I expect nothing le ...

The Thing About Love

I’m sure I’ve mentioned my love of rereading books at least a dozen times in reviews. It’s how I weed out good and great books from DIK, I-must-own-it-NOW books. Desert Isle Keeper status is reserved for novels which I’m eager to reread immediately. By the time I finished The Thing About Lov ...

Dawn Study

Once upon a time, I never left a book unfinished, no matter how unsatisfactory. It was a point of pride to me that I wouldn’t just stop halfway through a story. Unfortunately, those days are long gone, and now I’ll sometimes find myself stopping in the middle of a good book, just because I don ...

Million Dollar Cowboy

As a native of New York, I’m not very familiar with the ranches found out West. Perhaps that’s why I’ve always loved Westerns - they are an escape to a completely different world. Although Million Dollar Cowboy takes place in modern times, reading it was still a nice departure from the cold we ...

Devil in Spring

There’s always a risk when reading a book by one of your favorite authors, particularly when that book involves the child of a favorite couple from a beloved novel. The tie in to the earlier fantastic story raises the stakes, creating high expectations for the new tale. The hero of Devil in Spring ...
