Review Rewind: A Wild Night’s Bride (The Devil DeVere #1) by Victoria Vane

Review Rewind: A Wild Night’s Bride (The Devil DeVere #1)  by Victoria Vane

Karla’s Review 4.5 Stars!! A deliciously naughty, sexy, fun romp! Wild Night’s Bride is a unique, fresh, wonderfully written novella, with some truly memorable characters and a plot that left me chuckling. It’s true to the Georgian time period in setting, lifestyle and linguistics, which added to the appeal of the book. Sir Edward “Ned” Chambers has come to London to secure a house for the upcoming season. He runs into Viscount Ludovic DeVere, his best friend, and godfather to his daughter Vesta. Three years prior Ned lost his beloved wife Annalee and has never sought the companionship of another woman. His loneliness is all too apparent and DeVere is appalled […]

REVIEW: RELENTLESS BY D.B. REYNOLDS (VAMPIRES IN AMERICA, BOOK #11.5)

Dorsey’s Review 5 Vengeance Seeking Stars! This Raphael and Cyn novella is a MUST read!! This novella picks up after the death of Mathilde, when Laurent, a child of Mathilde’s appoints himself as Lord of her territory and seeks revenge against Raphael for her death. The situation with the European vampires is heating up. Naturally, Raphael retaliates and seeks vengeance by taking his fight and his vampires to France to put a stop to Laurent’s reign over Mathilde’s vampires and territory.

REVIEW: Midnight Unbound (Midnight Breed #14.6) by Lara Adrian

REVIEW: Midnight Unbound (Midnight Breed #14.6) by Lara Adrian

Dorsey’s Review   5 Deadly Gen One Stars!! I was so excited to read that we were getting Scythe’s story! He totally and thoroughly captivated me when we were introduced to him in Midnight Untamed!! Everyone who read that book must have felt the connection between him and the young widow Breedmate Chiara, and her young son Pietro. Scythe is a Gen One Hunter created by Dregos who has a heartbreaking backstory (as all of Dregos Hunters do) and Chiara is a widow in danger because of her deceased mates lies and deceit. When someone out for revenge attacks Chiara in her home, The Order enlists Scythe to keep her safe and find […]

I’m All Ears ~ An Audiobook Review: Sidebarred (The Legal Briefs #3.5) by Emma Chase

I’m All Ears ~ An Audiobook Review: Sidebarred (The Legal Briefs #3.5) by Emma Chase

Karla’s Review 5++ Feel Good Stars! A delightful sweet treat for readers whose hearts were captured by the charming characters in Sustained. This novella brings us up to speed on Jake, Chelsea and their adorable brood of kiddies along with Stanton and Sofia from Overruled, and Brent and Kennedy from Appealed. I was thrilled when I realized that Emma Chase was going to top this amazing series off with another chance for readers to re-visit with all the characters we fell  in love with in the Legal Brief series. The characters remain true to themselves and the author doesn’t drag the plot down with unnecessary angst but instead gives readers an […]

Review: The Redemption of Julian Price by Victoria Vane

Review: The Redemption of Julian Price by Victoria Vane

  Karla’s Review 4 Stars!  A wonderfully layered, entertaining story! Chalk up another winner for Victoria Vane in the historical romance genre! When this author puts her on her historical hat there is a very comfortable easy feel to her writing, it’s like coming home. Henrietta was a great character; bold, witty, and her curiosity about sexual intimacy between a man and woman was fun to read about. She was the one who was the pursuer in this relationship and came up with the arrangement that would satisfy both Julian’s and her circumstances. That’s not to say Julian wasn’t attracted to her too, he was, but his guilt over the loss of Thomas, […]

Review: The Story Guy (Lakefield novellas) by Mary Ann Rivers

Review: The Story Guy (Lakefield novellas) by Mary Ann Rivers

Crista says: The Story Guy is a quick and short read that never comes across that way. It is multi-layered, unique, and memorable. Brian Newburgh and Carrie West meet online after Carrie answers a personal add. The add states that Brian is looking for a Wednesday afternoon weekly meeting that will consist of “kissing only”. The add clearly states that this meeting will not result in a relationship or anything further sexual. Kissing only. This is of course a romance novel, so the rules set up in the personal add were meant to be broken:) Although this relationship starts out “playing by the rules”, as the chemistry heats up between Brian […]
