Review: It Happened One Wedding by Julie James
3.5 Stars , Reviews - Books / May 11, 2014

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.

Review: Eternal Rider by Larissa Ione
4.5 Stars , Reviews - Books / June 21, 2011

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.

Review: Savor the Danger by Lori Foster
4 Stars , Reviews - Books / June 14, 2011

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 the interaction of those animals with humans gave us insight into the softer hearts in these alpha heroes.

Review: Dark Embers by Tessa Adams
3 Stars , Reviews - Books / May 30, 2011

Ms. Adams has created a rich world of ancient shifters and almost as ancient feuds that really drew me into the world and made me want to learn more about the Dragonstar clan and the history of these ancient beings… loved the dragon-shifter world and mythos Ms. Adams has created in this story and I liked both the main characters quite a bit. They both share a deep love of family, honor and purpose. While I enjoyed Dark Embers, especially its mix of paranormal, biological warfare, emotions and mysteries, I really wished it had more plot and less sex.

Review: Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison
4.5 Stars , Reviews - Books / May 5, 2011

My favorite thing, though, is Ms. Harrison’s voice. I was so caught up in Dragon Bound that I was reading sections aloud to my (long-suffering) partner. I laughed out loud quite a few times and I think yelled once or twice at the characters. I was heavily immersed and very sorry to have the story end. I’ve put this series on my auto-buy list now and can’t wait for the next one.
