Assassin’s Honor

Assassin’s Honor is an interesting book. While not entirely original, the concept is a good one, although slow plot development and slightly ambiguous main characters bogged the story down. Deep inside the burial chamber of Ptolemy I, archaeologist Emma Zale finds an icon that pr ...

Get Lucky

Get Lucky is an enjoyable read about the importance of family and the bond between sisters. But while there were parts of the book that really struck a chord with me, I ultimately felt that the heart of the story and its characters lacked depth, making it less than a keeper. We me ...

Wild Fire

Though I haven't read a Christine Feehan novel in years, I feel like I haven't missed a thing. This is a familiar repeat of past stories. Bogged down by a dull resolution of the plot and detached characters, Wild Fire is a hefty, dense read.Conner Vega has returned to the Panama rainforest after ...

Hold on Tight

Hold on Tight is book 3 in the Hard to Hold trilogy. If you’re like me, and haven’t read the first two, you might be a little confused. It does get better, but the emotional disconnect from the characters and the lack of focus on the romance ultimately makes this book an average read.Chris W ...

I came to Lion’s Heat with some general expectations. I had read the previous books in the series and was interested in Jonas’s story, but didn’t have any particular hopes for his own mating. Nonetheless, I was rather disappointed to see how his relationship developed. It was unsatisfying, and ...

Promise of Pleasure

Promise of Pleasure is a mystery to me – how can this sort of book still exist? I was left speechless at the end of the story, which does not happen often. Even now, I cannot remember the last book I read that was as bad as this. The characters are irredeemable, the plot is riddled with clichés, ...

Seducing the Highlander

Anthology
Seducing the Highlander is an apt title for this collection of three interconnected short stories: All three heroines skillfully seduce and softly bully their wild Scotsman into falling in love with them. While these stories may not be as emotionally deep and as stirring as some other Scottish roman ...

Inked

Anthology
Inked is an anthology about the trials and tribulations of women who control (or are controlled by) magical tattoos. As far as anthologies go, this is an excellent one; all the stories were solid, and lots of fun. ...

Desires of a Perfect Lady

In some ways, I feel like Desires of a Perfect Lady was severely misrepresented by the title and the blurb on the back of the book. Both made the story sound like a witty, fun reconciliation/seduction of sorts, which couldn’t possibly be further than the truth. The characters are dull, the plot is ...

Delicious

Warning: this book causes extreme eye rolling, loud sighing, and uncontrollable urges to scream at the characters.Alyssa Deveraux and Luc Traverson shared one night of uninhibited passion that left both of them shaken. Alyssa wanted more, but Luc was terrified of his loss of control. The next mo ...
