I glance up from the muddy depths of my stout and notice a woman standing at the bar while the publican pulls a pint for another customer. Her fingers drum the aged wood—the only indication that she might be impatient for the man to get on with it and serve her. She’s dressed in typical country fare: brown corduroy jeans, beige Fair Isle sweater,...

 Sara’s heart stumbled two beats. “Like a date?” she blurted. “Even after what Hank—” Garrison grimaced. “Anything that man says, I tend to think the exact opposite. He’s not worth the oxygen wasted to speak his name.” “True.” Puffs of vapor drifted up between them as they breathed.
“So, then,” he said. “Dinner later? A...

Review: Distilled by Deelylah Mullin

Review: Distilled by Deelylah Mullin Distilled (A Love Brothers Anthology) Author: Deelylah Mullin Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Some of you know that I’m not a huge contemporary romance reader.  However, I found something new that I really enjoyed by fellow TWITA reviewer, Vampbard.  Her novella, Distilled, was something different, and I really enjoyed it. What I loved about this novella is that our main characters are survivors.  They both have suffered different traumatic issues and are on a forever road of recovery.  I liked how these scars were integral parts of them.  These imperfect characters found a perfect fit with each other.  The grittiness of these elements weighted the realism...

Review: Legacy of Lies by Jillian David

Review: Legacy of Lies by Jillian David Legacy of Lies Author: Jillian David Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I have found something new!  When I picked up Legacy of Lies it was with the understanding that it was going to be something different.  A paranormal western – that’s right, never thought to put those two words together.  However, Ms. David makes them fit and I enjoyed it! Legacy of Lies is the first book in the Hell’s Valley series.  From my research to put this review together, it seems it is spin-off from another series that I’m completely unfamiliar with.  That being said, I do not feel I missed out on anything.  The...

Something… animal? Zynda heard it, too, lifting her head in a way that reminded me of a predator pricking its ears into a downward wind. Or prey. I drew my blades, muscles singing from exhausted to hyperalert. “What is it?” “I don’t know. It sounded like...

Eager to embarrass his friend, Sawyer showed it to me one night in Toronto. So accustomed to associating Nico with anger, I surprised myself by laughing. Cackling, really.

Review: A Season of Spells Sylvia Izzo Hunter

Review: A Season of Spells Sylvia Izzo Hunter A Season of Spells Author: Sylvia Izzo Hunter Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: It turns out that A Season of Spells is the final book in the Noctis Magicae series.  I was surprised to discover it was a trilogy at the end.  This final book is a perfect end to this enchanting series. Note: There are spoilers from the first two books in this review, but nothing more that what the book blurbs provide. I have thoroughly enjoyed the characters and this world that Ms. Hunter has created.  The mixture of a historical setting, magic, politics and light romance was enchanting.  Though the plight of our...
