Matzah Ball Surprise

Oh, my heart. I loved this book. I see the Christian side of my family reflected very often in romance, and in fiction in general. However, very rarely do I see stories where I recognize the Jewish side of the family. Matzah Ball Surprise is just such a book. It’s sweet, hilarious, uplifting, and ...

Entry Shock

If you're a fan of LGBTQ paranormal romances, and especially those featuring shifters, then Mia West is an author who should be on your reading list!  Having first picked up her work with the Alaskan set Grizzly Rim series featuring native wildlife of the area (including my first ever book with an ...

A Notorious Vow

A Notorious Vow is the third and final book in Joanna Shupe's Four Hundred series, but don't worry if you haven't yet read the first two as this one stands perfectly well on its own. The couple from A Daring Arrangement (book one), makes a brief appearance here and I enjoyed catching up with them, b ...

Not a Sound

So, when I heard about Not A Sound, the latest novel from author Heather Gudenkauf, I was eager to get my hands on it. Ms. Gudenkauf cra ...

This second volume of erotic short stories written by women is an interesting collection that ranges from erotic romance to erotic horror, mainly with a D/s or bondage-centric themes.  The quality of the content varies quite widely; so while the book contains twenty-one stories, I’ve selected the ...

Three Nights with a Scoundrel

I’m not sure why it took me so long to read Tessa Dare. She’s certainly a well-respected historical romance author. This is largely why I selected Three Nights With a Scoundrel to review, and man, am I glad I did. I loved every page. When Lady Lily Chatwick’s twin brother Leo is murdered, s ...

Unspeakable

When I think of Sandra Brown, I think of page-turners. Her books aren’t always good, but they are always exciting and hard to put down. At least, that was true until she wrote Unspeakable. In Unspeakable, we have a small southern town, a folksy retired sheriff, an unsolved murder, some reve ...

Unspeakable

When I finished Unspeakable, my first instinct was to take it to the bookstore and get my money back (which I still intend to do). As I've been trying to write this review, analyzing why I didn't like this book, I keep finding myself thinking, "Well, I guess it wasn't that awful." The best I can say ...

Silent Melody

This is my kind of romance: two people drawn inexplicably to each other who, for various, often noble reasons, feel they must fight what they feel for each other. The struggle is a moot one, however, as the spell that holds the two lovers in its grip is too powerful to undo. After reading a book lik ...
