Sunday Snippet: Cursed by Destiny by Cecy Robson

Sunday Snippet: Cursed by Destiny by Cecy Robson  About the Book Cursed by Destiny Author:  Cecy Robson Publisher:   Signet Released:  January 7, 2014 REVIEW HERE  Snippet My sneakers crunched against the thickening snow in the garden, but the sudden alertness of my tigress slowed my steps.  She veered right and left, searching for a way out of me and thrilled by the sudden aroma breaking its way through the flurries.  I lifted my head to the sweeping sugar pine to my right, my lips parting at the sight of the dark figure crouching on the branches.  He leapt and landed with the controlled grace of a predator, watching me as he rose. Aric. “You caught me,” he said...

Review: The Medea Complex by Rachel Florence Roberts

Review: The Medea Complex by Rachel Florence Roberts The Medea Complex Author: Rachel Florence Roberts Reviewer: Una Rating: C What I’m Talking About: The Medea Complex was an interesting premise and nothing like what I expected.  Although I liked the idea of the novel and where the author was going, the execution of it fell flat. The Medea Complex is a psychological thriller based on a true story.  I admit the mystery of whether or not Anne was insane was gripping.  I saw this novel as more of a mystery than a psychological thriller with the underlying mystery the truth of Anne’s illness and its cause.   As the story unfolded I found myself trying to figure...

She nearly stumbled in her heeled boots when she saw him.  “Hey.” “Hey, thought I’d walk to you to your car.” There was such a vulnerable look in her dark eyes it made him frown, but she blocked it so quickly he could almost pretend he imagined it.  “I didn’t actually drive.  I walked.  I didn’t say anything before because I knew you’d feel responsible.” “Responsible?”  What the hell was she talking about? She made a...

Sunday Snippets: Immortal Hunter by Kait Ballenger

Sunday Snippets: Immortal Hunter by Kait Ballenger  About the Book Immortal Hunter Author:  Kait Ballenger Publisher:   Harlequin Released:  April 1, 2014 Snippet WITHIN FIFTEEN MINUTES David reached the address.  Shutting off the ignition and setting the kickstand, he parked his bike on the street several houses away.  He quickly jogged toward the house, ignoring the shooting pain coursing through his leg. As he crept up the porch steps, the hairs on his arms and the back of his neck stood on end.  His senses heightened, he listened for the sound of screams or yelling from behind the door.  Nothing.  He breathed deep, preparing himself, then froze.  The smell of rotten eggs hit his nose, and then he...

Sunday Snippet: Lord of the Hunt by Shona Husk  About the Book Lord of the Hunt Author:  Shona Husk Publisher:   Sourcebooks Released:  January 7, 2014 REVIEW HERE Snippet What was taking so long? Had the King coaxed her into a dance?  Was she now gladly in his arms thinking of ways to get her father’s pardon while the Queen watched? He curled his fingers as if remembering the warmth of her hand against his, the light in her eyes as she’d danced – she needed to learn how to hide what she was feeling better.  Too many people would see too much. The white dog came strolling cross the grass a moment before Verden saw Taryn emerging out of...

Slatton Publisher:   Telemachus Press Released:  July 12, 2011 REVIEW HERE Snippet “Let’s go back,” I suggested, before Arthur could kiss me.  He kissed me anyway. “Have you ever climbed a rock wall?” “No, and I don’t want to.” “Come on, I’ll show you how.  It’s fun.” “Fun?!” “Yes, fun.  It refers to enjoyable experiences that human beings are hardwired to have.  And not just in bed.” “That’s not fun, that’s duty.  I made a deal and I’m keeping my end of it,” I muttered.  Arthur laughed heartily. “That’s what you’re telling yourself, Emma?” “That’s the truth.” “Liar.  Come on.  We’re safe here. ...

Sunday Snippet: Dark Craving by Veronica Wolff

Sunday Snippet: Dark Craving by Veronica Wolff  About the Book Dark Craving  Author:  Veronica Wolff Publisher:   Self-published Released:  November 17, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet I stalk from the bushes.  A shadow moves on the path.  I freeze.  I’d know the curve of those shoulders anywhere. “Bloody hell.”  I’ve only murmured under my breath, but I’m heard. Annelise stops, turns, steps closer. I tear into her the moment she’s within earshot and hiss into the darkness.  “What are you doing here?” Even in the shadows, I sense her recoil.  “Hi to you, too, Ronan.” I take my urumi into my left hand and grab her arm with my right, tugging her back onto the path. “How’d you get...
