It Happened One Wedding was an enjoyable read with a strong heroine and a sexy hero. I liked the heroine's sass and bit of snark and really enjoyed some of the hero's mental dialogue and his almost hurt feelings when the other main characters tried to hide the secret from him. The characters are lively and likeable. I did wish for the suspense angle from prior books in the series, though.

Bite Me was an amusing tale of hybrid shifters, were-honey badgers and a search for vengeance and retribution. Trust me, no one wants to be on the bad side of a honey badger clan! I laughed a lot though I don't recommend this as a standalone because the many appearances of previous series characters will leave you confused if you don't know them. An amusing story, if a bit light on the romance part.

Dangerous Desire was a nice escape from my day and, given that I'm a pet lover as well, I really enjoyed the animals and the fact the main characters were both pet lovers. I also appreciated Ms. Escalera's inclusion of multi-cultural characters without making a presentation of it - the characters are who they are and they just happen to be multi-cultural. I really liked that aspect of Dangerous Desire.

Once again Ms. Ione has built on folklore and mythology to evolve her fascinating world of humans, demons, angels and strange beasts. The richness of the Horsemen and how they balance the good and bad sides of their gifts (or curses) in a fascinating read...I devoured Eternal Rider in a single afternoon and was already looking to pre-order the next book in this series. Eternal Rider was fast-paced, wonderfully complex and emotion-packed.

Savor the Danger was a fast-paced, action-packed but hot, sexy romance. Ms. Foster has packed it with fantastic characters that are both strong and vulnerable and even sarcastic but loving. I liked that the plot took twists I didn't anticipate and even when I guessed what might be going on, I wasn't sure. I had to keep reading. I must admit, as a dedicated animal lover, I also loved the fact this entire series had animal characters as well and...

My apologies, I’ve had an absolutely hellacious few weeks but it looks to be calming down a bit within the paperbag, so I should be able to catch up on some reviews. I have more than a few sitting in notes/drafts that I hope to get cleaned up and posted before August 1st. Thanks for bearing with me. It’s definitely the downside of solo blogging/reviewing.
