Review: Beauty and the Highland Beast by Lecia Cornwall

Review: Beauty and the Highland Beast by Lecia Cornwall Beauty and the Highland Beast Author: Lecia Cornwall Reviewer: Una & Vampbard Rating: A What We’re Talking About: A special treat for TWITA fans, a joint review from Una and Vampbard (VB)! Una picked up Beauty and the Highland Beast, simply because Beauty and the Beast is one of her favorite fairy tales.  That it is in a highland setting – win-win (one word: kilts)!  Though she didn’t know what to expect, she was pleasantly surprised by how gripping and compelling this novel was. She thoroughly enjoyed it.  The setting is fascinating; the fairy tale is woven within the story in such a way as to be a subtle...

Review: Beg For It by Megan Hart

Review: Beg For It by Megan Hart Beg For It Author: Megan Hart Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I haven’t read a lot of Megan Hart’s work, but each time I do, I get caught up in her powerful characters and storylines, and Beg For It is no different. I was immediately drawn in to Corinne and Reese’s worlds and needed to know what happened in their past that pulled them apart. Corinna’s sadness at recalling her lost love pulled at my heart and won me over right from the start. I needed her to find love as if my own life depended on it. The characters were so compelling that I...

Death, I presumed. He stared out the window at the forested hills that drew off into ever-rising blues of the distance, his face in profile to me. If I didn’t know what he was, if I couldn’t sense the power he carried, I would immediately know he wasn’t from around here. He was very thin, very pale, and sat very stiffly. Only the fingertips of...
