Review: Troublemaker by Linda Howard

Review: Troublemaker by Linda Howard

Dorsey’s Review 2 Disappointing Stars!! I hate that I am so disappointed with a Linda Howard book. When reading the book blurb I was so excited because it sounded like a classic Linda Howard book….I was sorely disappointed. I was expecting a book reminiscent of her “CIA Spies” books. What we got was basically the life of a beloved Labrador in a small West Virginia town. Don’t get me wrong, I love dogs but I don’t want to read a whole book about a dog when I expected a book that was clearly tagged as romantic suspense! It started out strong, the first two chapters we’re introduced to Morgan Yancy, an […]

Flashback Friday Favorite: In Bed with a Highlander (McCabe Trilogy #1) by Maya Banks

Flashback Friday Favorite: In Bed with a Highlander (McCabe Trilogy #1) by Maya Banks

Reviews Karla says: 5 Stars! Wonderful! The McCabe brothers have stolen my heart as well as the adorable Crispin. Ewan wanted to marry Mairin for what the union would bring to his clan, and found himself captivated by her charming and determined ways. Her relationship with Crispin, in the way of mother and child, warmed my heart. She challenged Ewan and his brothers at every turn and proved to be as fierce and protective as they were of the ones she loved. This devotion and determination earned her the loyalty and acceptance into the clan. So many breathtaking moments, but when Ewan assures her she is his greatest treasure…*gasp, swoon, faint*…I WANTED […]

I’m All Ears ~ Audiobook Review: The Search by Nora Roberts

I’m All Ears ~ Audiobook Review: The Search  by Nora Roberts

Karla’s Review 3 Stars! I’m still “SEARCHING” for the excitement! Okay, so the book had some moments, but I really expected more in the way of a thrilling read. I did like the two main characters, Fiona and Simon. Fiona was easy going, funny and a dog trainer extraordinaire! Simon was gruff, demanding, pushy, but it added to his appeal and they played well off of each other. I enjoyed the dog training aspect of the book, I love dogs, but when a book is titled The Search and the underlying plot centers around a serial killer, well, you would think it would be more exciting! Fiona survived a kidnapping, the […]

Review: Worth It All (The McKinney Brothers #3) by Claudia Connor

Review: Worth It All (The McKinney Brothers #3) by Claudia Connor

Karla’s Review  5 Stars!! My goodness did I enjoy this book! This inspiring story delivers a heartfelt message about overcoming adversity and forgiveness. It also depicts the resilience of children and how they view the world and triumph over life’s challenges in a most simplistic manner. Claudia Connor takes chances with her storylines and it’s what draws me to The McKinney Brothers series again and again. While I had an issue with one of her characters in the first book, Worth the Fall, the couple pairing and family dynamic was unique and for the most part I enjoyed the read. Her debut book impressed me enough that I couldn’t wait for […]

Flashback Friday Favorite: A Breach of Promise (The Rules of Engagement #1) by Victoria Vane

Flashback Friday Favorite: A Breach of Promise (The Rules of Engagement #1) by Victoria Vane

Reviews Kristen says: 4.5 Stars! WOW! What an unexpected surprise A Breach of Promise turned out to be! I was captivated, riveted, and charmed by this superbly written short story. I’m in awe of Ms. Vane’s ability to write a novella that is not only historically detailed, engaging, and cleverly contrived, but simultaneously sweeps the reader into a world full of richly developed characters, and terrific, witty dialogue. The cast of characters in this short story were simply amazing for a novella. I can honestly say, I don’t think I’ve read a more charming, delightful, and so full of himself hero! Marcus was such a weasel. I couldn’t help but love the conceited rake. I absolutely […]

Spotlight: The Keeper (Crossing Realms #1) by Rebecca E. Neely

Sacrifice or salvation? A chosen psychic few may be both. As the city’s Keepers battle Betrayers to save the human race, all’s not fair in love and war. Excerpt Her index finger found the button and lowered the window a crack. Immediately, he raised his hands. “I’m not going to hurt you. I’m unarmed.” Always good to hear. She cocked her head, perplexed. “Who are you?” “Nick Geary.” Unsmiling, a muscle worked in his jaw. He held her hostage with his eyes. “We need to talk.” Her heart tripped. No doubt about it. She’d never heard of any Nick Geary, never seen this man before in her life. Or had she? […]
