On a Saturday night in Miami, he’d much rather be on his boat or partying with friends than bleeding away the night at a charity ball he had had no real interest in attending. The music was calm and laid back, acceptable jazz that blended into the background while Miami business professionals and philanthropists wove through...

Review: The Inheritance by Olivia Mayfield

Review: The Inheritance by Olivia Mayfield The Inheritance Author: Olivia Mayfield Reviewer: Una Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Originally released as a series of six novellas, The Inheritance has now been released as a full novel.  I did not read the story in the novella format and this review is for the full novel only.  The premise piqued my interest, but the suspense/mystery was overwhelmed by the romance in some ways. I was intrigued by this detective suspense story to only find out that it is set within a romance.  The story of Andrew and Maggie is compelling.  Two long lost high school sweethearts who are reconnected by an odd will that pits them...

Review: Guarded by Mary Behre

Review: Guarded by Mary Behre Guarded Author: Mary Behre Reviewer: Una Rating: B What I’m Talking About: The second book in the Tidewater series, Guarded, focuses on Dev and Shelly.  I was intrigued by Dev when we first met him in Spirited.  He was Seth’s big and intimidating partner, but I’ve always loved the tall, strong and silent type.  Dev is all of this and more.  He is also intelligent and sensitive.  I enjoyed learning more about him as Shelly tied him up in knots. Shelly is Jules’s long lost middle sister.  At the conclusion of Spirited, Seth encourages Jules to use Dev’s cousins, who own a private security firm, to see if they...

Lor is going to be looking for me.

The only thing missing was classic horror-themed music as the sinister feeling surged again when Kyran paused as if he was listening for something. Still she couldn’t’t force her feet to move, too drawn in by all the awful possibilities from what the screen showed...

Sunday Snippet: Iron Night by M.L. Brennan

Sunday Snippet: Iron Night by M.L. Brennan  About the Book Iron Night  Author:  M.L. Brennan Publisher:   ROC Released:  January 7, 2014 REVIEW HERE Snippet My day then got even worse as I walked back into the dining room and noticed the homicidally envious looks that my fellow waiters were shooting me.  That only ever meant one thing, and I gulped as I went back to my tables. Sitting in the middle of my section was Suzume Hollis, kitsune, sometime friend, and all-time tormentor.  She caught my eye, raised  her wineglass ever so slightly, and gave me the smallest curl of that smile that always hit me like an electric shock to my spine.  Then, without missing a...

Review: Gilded Lily by Delphine Dryden

Review: Gilded Lily by Delphine Dryden Gilded Lily Author: Delphine Dryden Reviewer: Una Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Gilded Lily is the third offering in the Steam and Seduction series.  In this adventure we follow Frederique “Freddie” Murcheson and Barnabas Smith-Grenville, two opposites who do attract.  Although this novel feels a bit transitional, setting up new plots while circling back to finish up some elements introduced in the previous two novels, I liked it. For me, the Steam and Seduction series is steampunk that is more romance than science, but it’s still fascinating.  What hooked me are the characters.  I enjoy the independent and empowered heroines who seem to characterize this series.  Freddie is...
