Sunday Snippet: Deep Down by Mia Hopkins

Sunday Snippet: Deep Down by Mia Hopkins About the Book Deep Down Author:  Mia Hopkins Publisher:  Wild Rose Press Released:  November 20, 2015 Series:   Kings of California #1 Genre:  Contemporary Erotic Romance Snippet Using a tap on the dock, Sam filled a clean bucket with water. He grabbed his openers and shoved the pointed end of the tool into the keyhole opening on the underside of one of the urchins. Sam’s hands were big and strong looking, with long fingers and neat, squared-off tips. The backs of his hands were rough and peppered with scars. His movements were deliberate and exacting―almost like a chef’s. He split the shell, pulled the bright yellow roe, and dumped the spiny shells...

Review: Clockwork Samurai by Jeannie Lin

Review: Clockwork Samurai by Jeannie Lin Clockwork Samurai Author: Jeannie Lin Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I have waited for the sequel to Gunpowder Alchemy, the novel ended with so many questions.  Suffice to say, Clockwork Samurai does not disappoint, though I will say the plot thickens. At the conclusion of the previous novel I was left with a few questions.  What will happen between Chang-wei and Jin?  Will they be able to quell the rebels?  Will they be able to stop the British invasion?  Though none of these issues are resolved, each plot thread does progress.  The plight of Jin’s country is gripping – made more so by the issue of...

Her thick, auburn hair spilled from underneath her blue, elastic cap. Command had chided him for allowing the second–gens to call him Uncle, but the poor kid was ten, barely a year older than Alyanna. What if that was her, laying there? “Yes, what is it?” he asked. “Do I have to get operated on?”...

Jean-Baptiste was having a Rhum Barbancourt on the rocks, unless I missed my guess. I nearly ordered the same but then changed my mind. “I’ll have a Black Valentine,” I said. Yes,...

God, he was pretty. It wasn’t the first time she’d thought so, and likely wouldn’t be the last. His brown hair was a mess as it was his habit to drive his fingers through it. She frowned slightly—she shouldn’t be noticing his habits. Certainly shouldn’t be noticing his long, almost elegant fingers. Shouldn’t be imagining those fingers on her skin, around her throat, heavy on her tongue....

Review: Sweep in Peace by Ilona Andrews

Review: Sweep in Peace by Ilona Andrews Sweep in Peace Author: Ilona Andrews Reviewer: Una Rating: A What I’m Talking About: The Innkeeper Chronicles is just one of those solid urban fantasy/science fiction series that I enjoy. Sweep in Peace was a nail-biting and intriguingly fascinating mystery/action/drama.  This series is on my reread list, and it should be on yours. Note: This story was originally released as a serial on the author’s website.  Once completed, it was taken down, edited and prepped for release.  I did read it as the serial and now as an ARC.  There may have been typographical type changes but, in my opinion, the overall story remained unchanged. This series centers on...

His wide gaze kept darting between James’ eyes and his lips, and his expression bordered on desperation and need. It was a much better look than he’d had earlier. He’d only seen Morgan that defeated one other time, and he refused to let it happen, again—not if he could stop it. He tightened his fingers in Morgan’s silky curls and tugged back his head....
