Nothing More To Lose

Nothing More To Lose is the last of a trilogy set in the town of Hidden Cove. The earlier two books are After the Fire and On The Line. As soon as I finish this review, I plan to go out and get those books since I feel as though I missed some backstory that would have made this book even more rich. ...

Spontaneous Combustion

Spontaneous Combustion is a decent, if unexceptional start to the Code Red continuity series. When a warehouse fire breaks out in Courage Bay, California, firefighter Shannon O’Shea and her crew race to the scene. Inside the building, she finds a dog trapped beneath a fallen beam.

The Perfect Match

When I first started to read The Perfect Match, it seemed as though the author was going to break new ground in Christian contemporary romance.

An excellent writer with strong command of plot, character development, and a ...

Am I nervous? You betcha, but here goes. It is true that up until this book, ...

Twilight

Twilight is an intense and emotional book. The characters in it suffer deeply. You name it... they have experienced it. Unloving parents, trauma, drug abuse, and fear. Both are hurt - both long for solace. Since this is an inspirational romance, it isn't until they let go and let God into their live ...

The Fire Within

Anyone who read Shay's original America's Bravest trilogy remembers being left hanging by the final scene in Code of Honor, when the heroine's sister ran off after New Year's Eve kiss with the man she's been butting heads the entire book. For all of you who've been waiting for Delaney Shaw and Reed ...

Intimate Fantasy is the third book in Harlequin Temptation's Fantasies, Inc. mini-series. Each are penned by different authors and while each stand alone, the common thread among them is intriguing.
