Felix Sigurd, newly divorced doctor, parent to his two nieces Madeli ...

Build

I took a chance on Gillian Archer’s Build because it was in Kindle Unlimited - and I loved it. Fortunately, for just 99 cents, you can try right along with me whether or not you have KU. You won’t be sorry you did. Austin Burns is hiding at his buddy’s Lake Tahoe house drinking away the kno ...

Whiteout

Elyse Springer's Whiteout is very much a book of two halves, one of which I enjoyed a bit more than the other.  The first half revolves around an amnesia plot, and the second around the resulting fallout; the first half is tense and terrific, but the second loses momentum and the principals are se ...

Love at Last Series Box Set

This spicy box set contains three novellas by author Adriana Anders, and with wounded heroes, virgin heroes, and excellent sex scenes, they’re  well worth a read. Loving the Secret Billionaire Grade: B City Council candidate and preschool teacher Veronica Cruz is fighting an uphill battl ...

The Rake's Retreat

I generally think of a comfort read as something I’ve already read, but because I try to choose my TBR Challenge reads from books I haven’t read, I decided to go for one by an author whose work I’ve enjoyed and want to read more of.  Nancy Butler’s The Rake’s Retreat got my 2021 TBR C ...

Better Than People

I like dogs and cats, and I like shifter stories that center ‘pack’.  Unfortunately, despite these things - and my fondness for this author’s work - I didn’t really like Better Than People.  No, it isn’t a shifter story.  But animals and pack are at its heart, and if you aren’t a big ...

Two Rogues Make a Right

The third Sedgwick brother, Will, has his story told in Two Rogues Make a Right (and look at that lovely cover!), the latest instalment in Cat Sebastian’s Seducing the Sedgwicks series.  It’s a charming, funny, friends-to-lovers romance that had me sighing happily, melting inwardly and thinking ...

The House in the Cerulean Sea

The House in the Cerulean Sea is just lovely! My heart is so full and happy after reading this enchanting story by TJ Klune. I can’t wait to read it again! Linus Baker, forty-year-old bachelor and cat-owner, is a caseworker for the Department in Charge of Magical Youth (DICOMY), and his job is ...

Uncovering the Merchant's Secret

Uncovering the Merchant’s Secret is a lot more tough-minded than the last two Hobbes novels I’ve read – and a lot darker.  It’s also very entertaining, with the most fascinating heroine I’ve read about recently, and is set in a period I’ve not often come across in historical romance. Wh ...
