Review: Intimate Beings by Jessica Inclan

Intimate Beings by Jessica Inclan

The concept of one perfect ‘other’ for each person is a theme that has certainly been big lately. In most of the paranormal romances which are flooding the market these days, there’s a concept of a lifemate, other, mate, the ‘one’, etc and the paranormal creatures can smell, sniff, ‘know’, recognize, dream, etc that one individual meant for them. In Jessica Inclan’s latest, “Intimate Beings”, this theme is taken to a new and interesting level with the concept of a ‘twin’. A twin is your other half, and they have the nature and powers to ‘complete’ their respective twin. Do you think the huge popularity of paranormal romance novels these days is partially due to this true romantic dream of meeting the one true love that’s meant for you? Just something to think on.

Review: In Too Deep by Portia Da Costa

In Too Deep by Portia Da Costa

Mystery letters left in the suggestion box that are more than suggestive, anonymous erotic messages sent to her e-mail address from someone named NEMESIS… “In Too Deep” by Portia Da Costa is an erotic literary adventure with just a touch of whodunit thrown in…


Review: Hex Appeal by Linda Wisdom

Hex Appeal by Linda Wisdom

Shoes that bill and coo, and Monty Python’s rabid bunny slippers come to life! “Hex Appeal” by Linda Wisdom is a laugh out loud paranormal romance. With zany secondary characters and a Starbucks addicted witch in love with a smoldering, sexy vampire, this series has something for everyone. In “50 Ways to Hex Your Lover”, Jazz and Nick reunited to finally defeat a returned enemy. Now in “Hex Appeal” they’ll need to trust each other more than ever before to best whatever force is trying to either break them up or kill them.

Review: Dating da Vinci by Malena Lott

Dating da Vinci by Malena Lott

What do you do when your soul mate dies? Do you crawl into the grave with them? Live only for your children? How do you go on? How can you ever find the strength and courage to love romantically again? I must say that I’m not a chicklit reader. The few I have read were just a little too shallow for me. But that’s certainly not the case with “Dating da Vinci” by Malena Lott. In this book she takes on the life shattering experience of widowhood, and even if you don’t agree with the way her heroine deals with her circumstances, it’s a very pleasant and entertaining read.

Broken Pieces by Carla Cassidy

I have shivers running up and down my spine. I just finished “Broken Pieces” by Carla Cassidy and I really hope none of my stairs creak tonight or I’ll likely have a heart attack screaming my head off. If you like books that scare you and have you looking over your shoulder, this one will fit the bill.

Mistaken Mistress by Tessa Radley

After a grueling day of reading and reviewing, I was happy to pick up “Mistaken Mistress,” a Silhouette Desire category romance by Tessa Radley. This story is part of her ‘Saxon Brides’ trilogy about a family of winemakers in New Zealand. This first book sets the stage and introduces the family.

Each story limns the tale of a resident of 721 Park Avenue in Manhattan.

Review: The Pirate Lord by Sabrina Jeffries

The Pirate Lord by Sabrina Jeffries

Ahoy there! Sorry…I just finished “The Pirate Lord,” the re-release of the 1998 novel by Sabrina Jeffries, and I’m having a bit of a problem coming back to this reality. There’s just something about a man with a bandanna and an earring…and maybe a parrot…ooh, and a sword…a really, really, BIG sword! Ahem, excuse me. It’s that whole reality thing again. So anyway, hot pirates ahead (check out the new cover, mmmmmm, delicious). And lots of humor and witty dialogue too. (From Ms. Jeffries, not me.)


Review: Warrior: The Cat Star Chronicles by Cheryl Brooks

The Cat Star Chronicles by Cheryl Brooks

The Cat Star Chronicles are a series of science fiction romance/erotica books by Cheryl Brooks about a race of catlike people. Their planet was destroyed, most of their population killed, and the few remaining Zetithians sold into slavery. Each book tells the story of one of these slaves. “Warrior” is the second book in this series and it’s a hard one for me to categorize. It’s not necessary to have read the first one, although I did and enjoyed it too.

Review: Dark Highland Fire by Kendra Leigh Castle

Dark Highland Fire by Kendra Leigh Castle

Goddesses, dragons, werewolves, prophecies, magic…this series has all those things that make my heart go pitty-pat. “Dark Highland Fire” is the second book in Kendra Leigh Castle’s exciting tale of an alternate world where the balance has gone horribly wrong, and its connection to Earth. I read and loved her first book, “Call of the Highland Moon” which introduced a world just like ours where paranormal creatures run amok. Although it’s not necessary to read the first book to enjoy this story, I’m glad I did. This second book continues and expands Castle’s vision of both worlds which are exciting places I really enjoy visiting.

Review: When Day Breaks by Mary Jane Clark

When Day Breaks by Mary Jane Clark

The world of morning news programs is absolutely cutthroat, and when the well-known anchor of the top-rated program is found suspiciously dead, the pressure is on to solve the case.  This is the premise of “When Day Breaks” by Mary Jane Clark.  Constance Young made lots of enemies as she climbed to the top, so there are plenty of potential suspects.

Review: Promises Reveal by Sarah McCarty

Promises Reveal by Sarah McCarty

Splendid! When I got the chance to review “Promises Reveal” from Sarah McCarty, I leapt at the opportunity. I think I even offered a bribe to Quentin, but I don’t remember (no, really Quentin, I don’t) what it was! In any event, whatever it was, it was SO worth it. I’m not a big fan of western romances, but I love her ‘Hell’s Eight’ series and couldn’t wait to see how this latest in her ‘Promises’ series translated into mainstream mass market paperback. Wonderfully, that’s how. This book is absolutely SMOKING hot and has interesting characters and plot lines to boot! (Get it, to ‘boot’?)

Review: The Magical Christmas Cat by Lora Leigh, Nalini Singh Erin McCarthy and Linda Winstead Jones

The Magical Christmas Cat by Lora Leigh, Nalini Singh Erin McCarthy and Linda Winstead Jones

The Magical Christmas Cat is a romantic and sometimes erotic anthology featuring a few of my favorite authors. Each story has the distinction of a little “feline” touch. We have a paranormal romance from Nalini Singh about a leopard changeling falling in love with a reluctant schoolteacher. In Erin McCarthy’s story we have a witch with a matchmaking kitty-cat. Linda Winstead Jones gives us a demonic story about a possessed cat shaped knick-knack, and last but certainly not least, Lora Leigh gives us a story from her breed series about a leopard in mating heat. Whew! Here goes…


Review: Prey by Melina Morel

Prey by Melina Morel

My, my, my. How to describe “Prey” by Melina Morel? It’s NOT a romance, although there certainly is a smidge of animalistic, scratching, biting sex (well, it’s about shapeshifters!) included. It’s NOT just a mystery. It’s not just urban fantasy. It’s NOT horror. It’s a very interesting mix of all the above. But I would have to say is more of an urban fantasy suspense mystery. How’s that for a new category?


Review: Line of Scrimmage by Marie Force

Line of Scrimmage by Marie Force

Can you believe it? Me, Mrs. doesn’t really read ‘sports’ romances, and I’ve read two in the last week! And enjoyed both! This is surely cause for celebration. My most recent is “Line of Scrimmage” by Marie Force. It’s about football, did you guess? It’s also about the debutante and the quarterback. But don’t hate them for that because their life hasn’t been a bed of roses.
