Claimed

Why should YA have all the dystopia fun? Elle Kennedy takes the post-apocalyptic US in a decidedly adult direction in Claimed, the first book in her Outlaws series of erotic romances. Rather than marry the psychopath who wants her hand, Hudson Lane fled her privileged life in the city and joined ...

Winter's Orbit

I’m not usually drawn to Science Fiction/Fantasy or Space-Opera Romance but I may have to rethink that after reading Winter’s Orbit by Everina Maxwell. Kiem, Prince Royal of Iskat, has been asked to marry Count Jainen, the Thean representative to the federated empire ruled by Iskat. Jainen wa ...

So Wild a Dream

Reading Beautiful Wreck in 2014, I was blown away by Larissa Brown’s dreamlike writing style and the romance within. When I read the first part of the follow-up in 2016, I enjoyed the story but wasn’t left with that lovely breathless feeling I craved. Luckily, while I wasn’t floating weightles ...

So Wild a Dream

Two years ago, I declared Larissa Brown’s Beautiful Wreck was one of the Best Books of 2014. Last year, we raved about her novella, Tress. And I was so excited to read So Wild A Dream, set in the same world as Beautiful Wreck, that when I got the chance to review it, I was literally breathless. Ma ...

Beautiful Wreck

First things first - don’t judge this book by its cover. From the official cover, I was expecting something a bit childish - definitely with Vikings, but still childish. This is the author’s first work, after all, and it’s unusual to read a first romance that fully moves the reader. Well, cons ...

The Miles Vorkosigan Series

Miles Vorkosigan is an adventurer and a spy, a slightly crazy con artist, a quick-thinker and a fast-talker. He is a military genius with a gift for personnel and a miraculous talent for pulling rabbits out of hats at the last possible moment. His personality is so compelling that it almost makes pe ...
