Radiance

This is easily my favorite book of 2015. What makes it absolutely perfect to me are the likable, intelligent characters, the superb handling of the subject matter and the excellent writing.Most people I have recommended it to have loved it as well, which sort of doubles my pleasure. I hope this revi ...

Dark Horse

When I picked up this book to refresh my memory before writing my review I found myself rereading the whole thing. A rare space adventure romance this is a completely enthralling story about courage, love and the indomitable human spirit that the best of us convey. Just call it the Unbroken of the r ...

Alienated

I love stories about aliens. I have ever since childhood when I discovered authors like Andre Norton and Isaac Asimov. While sci-fi novels have been out of style and fantasy and paranormal books have reached ascendancy recent publishing trends have me hoping we are about to see that change. ...

Jordan

It’s never a good sign when a review book takes me a month to read. If only Susan Kearney’s Jordan had taken just a month! I’ve been reading it off and on for the past three months, barely able to tolerate more than ten pages at a time. It’s not that the book was horrible, it was just boring ...

Rion

This is a book I would describe as way too busy. Though it’s action packed, there’s just too much to deal with in one story - from dragons, other worlds, kidnapping, scattered references to the legend of Camelot, to constantly running from things out to get them, I was tired when I finished read ...

Darkness Unknown

There are few things I appreciate more than a well-written, alternate reality romance that doesn’t need much back-story and isn’t too complicated. Darkness Unknown is the fifth installment in Alexis Morgan’s Paladin series, but it functions as a stand-alone and avoids unnecessary data dumps. ...

The Host

I liked this book much more than I expected too. Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably seen the Twilight phenomenon in action. In the last year these books have seen incredible buzz, and everyone and their dog seemed to be reading them. I read the first one, because it was a select ...

Midnight Rising

Midnight Rising is the fourth installment of the Adrian’s Midnight Breed series. The plot immediately drew me in and I liked its thoroughly tortured hero, Rio. Because the action is light, the hero and heroine - and their relationship - got the attention they deserved. Although not all great, this ...

How to Lose an Extraterrestrial in 10 Days

How To Lose An Extraterrestrial in 10 Days is the last in Susan Grant's very enjoyable science fiction trilogy (the first two titles are Your Planet or Mine and My Favorite Earthling). While paranormal romances are sprouting up like weeds, science fiction romances are hard to find, and this is one t ...
