A Delicate Deception

A Delicate Deception is a sparkler of a tale, featuring a complex heroine, a winning hero, a great romance and memorable secondary characters. Amelia Allenby has come to the Derbyshire countryside with her friend and former governess Georgiana to get away from the prying eyes of society after cau ...

Into the Dark

Into the Dark, which is the fifth installment in Karen Rose's Cincinnati series, is one of my most anticipated releases of 2019. I fell in love with Dr. Dani Novak and computer hacker extraordinaire Diesel Kennedy way back in book one (Closer Than You Think), and I have been on tenterhooks waiting f ...

At the start of our story, Jack King tells us he is an exp ...

Get A Life, Chloe Brown

Wealthy Chloe Brown has fibromyalgia. She also has a list of things she wants to experience (I’m so over ‘tick off items on a list’ as a plot device), and major abandonment issues related both to her diagnosis (a douche of a fiancé, rarely mentioned, who ditched her because of her illness) an ...

Work For It

Talia Hibbert’s A Girl Like Her was one of my favorite books in 2018.  I initially doubted the story could or would appeal to me - as I mentioned in my review, it featured a heroine alternately described as rude, awkward, and, according to everyone in town, bad news.  But I was completely won ov ...

Digging Deep

Digging Deep is the first book I’ve read by New Zealander Jay Hogan, and I have to say I was pretty impressed.  In it, the author takes a long, hard look at how living with a chronic illness impacts on every single aspect of life for the person who has it and those around them, while at the same ...

Storm and Fury

I'm always on the lookout for new urban fantasy series featuring unusual creatures, so I was over the moon to learn that Jennifer L. Armentrout was writing a spin-off of her Dark Elements series - which happened to be the first series I ever read featuring gargoyles. Plus, Trinity, the heroine of St ...

This is Not a Love Scene

“I liked being ridden, and offered the chance to pretty much every guy in Video II” With those words, S.C. Meagle introduces us to a spirited, smart heroine – wannabe director Maeve.  While she is instantly memorable, the structure of the novel makes her story come off as a bit wooden and ar ...

Love from A to Z

Love from A to Z is a great modern character study wrapped in a fresh romance, wrapped in a coming of age tale.  I did have some mild problems with it, but overall it’s a very absorbing, moving story of two people who have experienced loss and prejudice coming together to find love and understand ...
