Badlands

I cut my teeth on historicals and romantic suspense, so I always enjoy an excuse to dive back into either of these subgenres.  I’d read all but one of the books in Jill Sorenson’s Aftershock series and inexplicably the one I’d neglected was the one that intrigued me most. Badlands reunites ...

Used

I’m not a motorcycle club romance kind of girl. I tend to like my books heavy on the courtship, with scenes that really show the relationship building. Most MC club books are about the sexy and tend to have heroes who throw around the words “bitch” and “whore” way too much for my taste. Wh ...

Lifers

As of this writing, the e-book version of Jane Harvey-Berrick’s Lifers is a steal at $.99. I urge you to snatch it up, because I don’t think you’ll find a more realistic love story between an ex-con and a jaded young woman who believes only in casual hook-ups and zero attachments. ...

Hard Time

Lately I've craved stories that are different. I periodically feel the need to leave my comfort zone. Thus I decided to read this romance between a prison employee and an inmate. I am so glad I did as I found an engaging story that was difficult to put down. Inmate number 802267 catches the eye o ...

'Til Death

I very much liked the heroine from Don’t Cry for Me, the second book in the Rebel Ridge series so it was a given that I was going to read the third book, the story about Meg Walker, the sister of the two previous heroes. Her story is entertaining, although my willingness to suspend disbelief was t ...

About That Night

Narrated by Karen White I was about halfway through About That Night when I realized the suspense was not the main focus of the book and the entire storyline started making a lot more sense. Unlike other entries in the FBI/US Attorney series that carry a feel of romantic suspense (although all ar ...

Fever

I am apparently not the only person who watched Prison Break who also loves romance. I've read several novels recently about innocent convicts involved in government conspiracies. This one throws in the added element of the paranormal. Our ex-firefighter/paramedic hero has developed a new talent sin ...

Night After Night

Revenge might be a petty motivation, but when it’s all a guy’s got left in his life, it’s enough to get him out of bed every morning. Or so former con man Sean O’Brien thinks. Sean’s swindler father is currently in prison because he was the one holding the bag when he and his ...
