Nate and Chloe’s story was smoking hot, but I wish it was a little longer so that their relationship could develop more before hitting the sheets. I realize that with a novella that can be a downside. There are only so many pages to get the couple together. Many Baxter did a great job building the heat and adding emotion to Nate and Chloe’s story. Looking for a quick white-hot and emotional romance that starts at a funeral? Then check out Christmas With the Billionaire Rancher by Mandy Baxter.     The Billionaire Single Dad is a slow sexy burn that leads to a HEA for all involved. Carter and Tess is a couple that tugs at your heart strings. They both have been alone […]

I picked Dead by Midnight up when I saw it on Netgalley. It surprised me in many ways. My review for Seduction Game was just published a month ago. So I thought it’s a well-loved series with many favorite characters and a holiday novella; it might be just the perfect interlude between review books or more serious reading. Well, it was 2 out of 3. Dead by Midnight is a whole book, not really a novella.  Otherwise, it’s perfect.  I savored my treasured characters and the holiday party.  It was wonderful to see them further along in their lives and catch up on their jobs and families. There was an added kick with a team coming in from Kaylea Cross’s series – Hostage Rescue Team. (The first […]

        KATE DANIELS FANS MUST READ MAGIC STARS!   I don’t know how to start this review without spoiling you guys. It was so good. So. Good. I’ve had my head in textbooks the last few weeks so I didn’t know that Magic Stars was even a thing. Then I see Jen over at Red Hot Books talking about it on Twitter. When I found out that story was from Derek’s POV and it had Julie in it too, I was like . . . Derek has had a rough life, he had to kill his father after he turned loup. But Curran saved and trained him. Then Derek worked for Jim as a spy of sorts because he was so handsome, […]

      Detectives Dawn Cimarron and Rafe Melbourne find themselves in the middle of two investigations, one a race against time as they try to identify and locate a young woman who was abducted from a park. The other involves the murder of a troubled young man where, on the surface, looks to be as a result of his lifestyle. But, things aren’t always the way it first seems.   It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what attracted me to this story from the first chapter but I was intrigued from the beginning. Dawn Cimarron is an enigma herself and, combined with the two cases, I got hooked. She also has a very unconventional marriage that captured my interest. We learn early on that her […]

    Review Kat Chandler is still grieving over her fiancé who didn’t return from his deployment in Afghanistan. It’s been two years and she’s immersed herself in her work as a first-year principal of an elementary school. When the new groundskeeper, Micah Peterson, enters her orbit, along with his adorable son, she starts on a new one. Micah’s son Ben has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair. I loved how devoted he was to his child and how clear he was about being a package deal with any potential relationship. Though he and Kat had an immediate attraction, both had really good reasons to proceed cautiously, especially when she found out he was a Marine.   The strength of the story is in the […]

    Connor McClain and Faith Garrett are good friends, despite both secretly being in lust with each other. She’s still licking her wounds following a broken engagement with a cheating ex-fiancé and he’s got some baggage from a past relationship that pushed him to enlist and end up in Afghanistan.   I LOVED this story! Connor has a wicked sense of humor and is sexy in all the right ways (a gentleman, loves his family, protective nature, etc.). Faith is beautiful but is completely unaffected by her looks, is smart and has a sinful addiction to sugar. When these two are together, it’s fun and often filled with sexual tension in a really good way. Their romance developed so naturally, progressing slowly but deliberately […]

  This story takes hold of you after the first couple of pages and never really lets you go. Seemingly law abiding, well adjusted people are suddenly and inexplicably committing mass murders in one town. Freelance writer Kendall Jennings, who normally does fillers for lifestyle publications, drifts into covering the story and runs afoul of the chief investigator, Detective Lance O’Grady. Both are trying to figure out a connection between the killers and their motives.   I enjoyed the hunt for clues and exploring the source of the phenomenon. It’s an unusual premise, which kept things interesting. Both Kendall and Lance have extraordinary histories that are slowly revealed throughout the story, adding additional layers to the puzzle. I sort of figured out what was going […]

  I don’t often find a book where I love both of the main characters equally from the start. In that sense, this story was just a delight.   Bess Farrar is the vicar’s spinster daughter (no one refers to her that way) and she’s a force in the town. She makes everything work but in the best of ways. When Rory Beaton, the new Earl of Channing, arrives following his estranged brother’s death, Bess confronts him after repeated attempts to get him engaged with town events go unanswered. That’s when the fun begins.   What I loved about Bess? She’s clever, resourceful and witty without being insufferable. She wields her power with fine lace and never oversteps. What I loved about Rory? Aside from […]
