This is a touching, heartwarming love story that is also a lesson in courage. Amelia Carson is a true hero in that she looked beyond the surface of Houston Leigh and saw his heart, even when he couldn’t. I think she was incredibly brave and resilient to seek a new life for herself, especially during this era. She didn’t waste time feeling sorry for herself because of her circumstances but was determined to make the best of it and create the opportunity. Amelia was just lucky that it included Houston. Speaking of Houston, he epitomizes the tortured hero. One side of his face is terribly scarred and it has shaped him in some good and some unfortunate ways. The good way? He’s a sensitive man who […]

Review: Chasing Magic by Stacia Kane

Review: Chasing Magic by Stacia Kane

  Stacia Kane can do no wrong in my book. Man this series just grabs you by the balls and will not let go! This review will be hard to write without spoilers; that’s for sure. (The only reason Chasing Magic didn’t get a the full 5 stars is that I felt like Chess back peddled some in her relationship with Terrible and I feel like they are solid and she should be over some of her self-destructive ways. So I have high hopes that we will see a new an improve Chess in the next book.) Terrible equals awesomeness. He is the best male character I’ve read since Karen Marie Moning’s Barrons. He is exactly what Chess needs in her life. He is strong […]
