Quickie Review: The Christmas Top by Christi Snow

Quickie Review: The Christmas Top by Christi Snow The Christmas Top Author: Christi Snow Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Not surprisingly, Christi Snow has written yet another wonderfully sweet and sexy story with The Christmas Top. In this addition to the 1Night Stand series we’re introduced to Jason Wieland and Mark Cummins, two men on the edge of a new beginning that could be the answer to their wildest fantasies. Both men are trying to start over with a clean slate, although for very different reasons, and are hoping that Madame Eve can help make their Christmas wishes come true. Of course, all of the 1Night Stand stories I’ve read so far have been...

Review: No Boundaries by SE Jakes

Review: No Boundaries by SE Jakes No Boundaries Author: SE Jakes Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I’ve become a huge fan of many of Ms. Jakes’ other series, including some written under her other pen names, so I was very eager to read the first of the Phoenix, Inc. stories, as well. No Boundaries introduces us to two intriguing and volatile characters, Cole Jacobs and Marcus Lowry, both of whom have pasts that they’d rather not revisit—ever. Unfortunately, the past is never so acquiescent, and, in Cole’s case, it is sometimes deadly. Ms. Jakes never fails to write relatable, compelling characters, and I immediately liked Cole a great deal. He is young,...

Spotlight + Review: Circus of the Damned by Cornelia Grey

Spotlight + Review: Circus of the Damned by Cornelia Grey Circus of the Damned Author: Cornelia Grey Reviewer: B. Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I admit that, having just finished one wonderful Steampunk novel, I was almost afraid of what I might encounter in Circus of the Damned, especially since Ms. Grey is a new author to me. As it turns out, I needn’t have worried at all. What I found was a magical, imaginative, and very well written story that kept me fully captivated from start to finish. From the beginning, Gilbert is an interesting character, but his self-imposed (yet understandable) solitude makes him seem incomplete. While his circumstances necessitate an unhealthy amount of bravado and self-sufficiency,...

Review: Prosperity by Alexis Hall

Review: Prosperity by Alexis Hall Prosperity Author: Alexis Hall Reviewer: B. Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I’m beginning to believe that Alexis Hall is incapable of writing anything that isn’t completely wonderful in some way or other. Or in many ways, as is the case in Prosperity. As an ardent fan of most everything Steampunk, as well as having thoroughly enjoyed the author’s other works I’ve read to date, I was excited about this title even before I was offered the chance to review it. That it exceeded all my expectations was an added bonus, and being able to lose myself so fully in the narrative was a rare delight. While the gist...

Review: Precious Metals by L.A. Witt

Review: Precious Metals by L.A. Witt Precious Metals Author: L.A. Witt Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I was very eager to read this title, having enjoyed the first story in the Metals series a great deal, and I wasn’t disappointed. If Noble Metals succeeded in being imaginative and exciting, then this one was even better. Still set in during the gold rush in the Klondike, Precious Metals is the story of another pair of companions-turned-lovers, an invention worth killing (or dying) over, and a perilous journey through the frozen north. While both stories share certain similarities, there are enough differences between the respective situations of the main characters to allow Precious Metals...

Review: Through the Veil by Christi Snow

Review: Through the Veil by Christi Snow Through the Veil Author: Christi Snow Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Through the Veil, the newest title and series by Christi Snow, begins with a fascinatingly horrific premise: Mother Earth, wounded for too long by the very beings she gave life to, was forced to take steps to protect herself. Everything west of the Mississippi River, and those who occupied it, seems to have been completely lost to the ocean. What’s left has been split in half by the sudden appearance of a deep gorge, and, 40 years later, an impenetrable wall of mist called the “Veil.” Even worse, most of those initial survivors mysteriously died...

Review: A Highland Wolf Christmas by Terry Spear

Review: A Highland Wolf Christmas by Terry Spear A Highland Wolf Christmas Author: Terry Spear Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I am so glad to have finally been able to read Calla and Guthrie’s story. These two have been circling each other for a while now as secondary characters, and I very much enjoyed how their obvious fascination for one another played out. Although they’ve known each other for most of their lives, except for the time Calla’s family lived elsewhere, they really don’t know each other well at all. But, from the beginning of the book, Calla and Guthrie are revealed to be surprising and unpredictable, and it doesn’t take long for a...

Review: Black Water by Faith Hunter

Review: Black Water by Faith Hunter Black Water Author: Faith Hunter Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Jane Yellowrock is back in this trio of short stories that go a long way toward easing the wait between full-length novels. Told from Jane’s perspective, they provide a more thorough look at some previously seen minor characters, introduce a few brand new ones, give readers a glimpse of a younger Jane just starting out, and reaffirm that, no, she really doesn’t get any down time. Ever. They’re also a good reminder that Jane is adept when it comes to vengeance, and that, very often, retribution is extremely satisfying. “Black Water,” which takes place between Blood...

Review: Hero of a Highland Wolf by Terry Spear

Review: Hero of a Highland Wolf by Terry Spear Hero of a Highland Wolf Author: Terry Spear Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Alpha through and through, Colleen Playfair is used to calling all the shots in her life, and has in no way needed, or wanted, anyone else’s approval. Having been raised in America by an alcoholic father, she is thrilled by the prospect of inheriting the Scottish castle that her family called home for generations. Fighting with the stubborn male currently managing the premises is a less-than-appealing proposition, but she’s never backed down before, and isn’t about to start now. Having dealt with one absentee (and usually drunk) heir from the Playfair family already,...
