The Bravest Thing

I don't know who put The Bravest Thing on my radar but whoever it was, please feel free to find me and collect a reward for a job well done. Laura Lascarso is a new-to-me author, one I'm sorry to say I hadn't even heard of before picking up this book, but I knew by the opening chapter (truthfully ...

Going in Deep

Going in Deep is what you’d expect from Carly Phillips - a sexy and swoonworthy romance - but it’s also so much more. Ms. Phillips has fearlessly written a story with a remarkably different kind of hero and heroine than typically found in romance novels, making this a unique and distinctive boo ...

Enter Title Here

One of the amazing things about the novel Gone with the Wind is that the book is intensely popular in spite of the fact that many dislike heroine Scarlet O’Hara. I would agree that Scarlet is hard to like, at times hard to understand and never comfortable to be around; yet she is an enduring figur ...

Rock N Soul

Rock N Soul by Lauren Sattersby is an unexpected gem; funny, emotional and sexy. I am surprised it seems to have slipped under the reviewing radar. Tyler Lindsey is a bellboy at a nice Boston hotel. He has an okay girlfriend, an okay apartment, an okay life. Then one day he enters a ...

Redeemed

I loved Redeemed, even with its dark subject matter and deeply flawed characters. Ms. O’Keefe has a masterful touch and capably leads the reader out of the darkness and into the light as the story concludes. Though I’m often frustrated by short stories, this is lush with detail and engaging from ...

The Dark Affair

The Dark Affair is the third book in Ms. Claremont’s Mad Passions series, and features James Stanhope, Viscount Powers, who was an intriguing secondary character in the previous book in the series, Lady in Red. In fact, I found him so intriguing, that I was far more interested in him than in the h ...
