His black hair spilled loose over his shoulders, his midnight gaze on me, his face grave. “Beautiful Andromeda—don’t be afraid. I’m here.” He sat beside me and stroked a finger down my cheek. It felt real and warm and I wanted to lean my cheek into his palm, for comfort. “You’re not real,” I whispered, willing myself to wake up. “I am real. The other things are not. They’re just…fragments tossed up...

Review: Warrior’s Curse by Alexa Egan

Review: Warrior’s Curse by Alexa Egan Warrior’s Curse Author: Alexa Egan Reviewer: Una Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Warrior’s Curse is the third book in the Imnada Brotherhood series.  It is a rich paranormal story set within a historical novel.  I jumped into this book without reading the previous two titles, and it did affect my enjoyment.  Although I found myself liking the story of Gray and Meeryn, I do wish I had read the previous titles. It is always best to start a series from the beginning however, when I signed up for this one, I somehow missed that it was the third in a series.  I have found that jumping in on...

Sunday Snippet: The Blush Factor by Gun Brooke

Sunday Snippet: The Blush Factor by Gun Brooke  About the Book The Blush Factor Author:  Gun Brooke Publisher:   Bold Strokes Books Released:  February 18, 2014 Author Contact:   Website, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Live Journal Snippet Something about this young woman made it impossible for Eleanor to merely close her laptop and stop watching.  Eleanor noticed the nearly transparent hazel eyes immediately.  A charming band of freckles danced across her nose, which, together with her full, soft, pink mouth, gave her an aura of innocence.  Her blinding smile, wide and guilelessly open, pulled Eleanor in.  She called herself “Blush”, and this girl seemed to know everything about makeup, hair, and skin products – anything related to beauty.  Blush acted so...

Sunday Snippet: The Fallen by Keri Lake

Sunday Snippet: The Fallen by Keri Lake  About the Book The Fallen Author:  Keri Lake Publisher:   Self-published Released:  April 17, 2014 REVIEW HERE Snippet Karinna tugged at his grip, as Xander guided her up a winding staircase and came to a stop in front of a dark wooden door, with deep black grooves, that gave off an ominous warning of bad things on the other side. He pushed it open. Awe and horror battled inside her head as she looked around the room.  Unlike the relatively normal decor on the first floor, it did look like something out of the serial killer’s edition of Better Homes & Gardens. Beautiful enough to have her admiring the color scheme. Terrifying enough...

Review: Stolen Remains by Christine Trent

Review: Stolen Remains by Christine Trent Stolen Remains Author: Christine Trent Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Stolen Remains is the second novel in the Lady of Ashes Mysteries.  I was wonderfully surprised to find this sequel is as engrossing and interesting as the first novel, Lady of Ashes.  Although I didn’t think I was in the mood for a historical mystery when I picked it up, I found myself completely engrossed and unable to put it down. Violet is a wonderfully characterized heroine.  Clearly a woman who loves what she does, Violet sticks out like sore thumb in Victorian society.  Through the interactions between her and various characters, we learn about the...

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...

Sunday Snippets: His Untamed Desire by Katie Reus

Sunday Snippets: His Untamed Desire by Katie Reus  About the Book His Untamed Desire Author:  Katie Reus Publisher:   Signet Released:  January 7, 2014 REVIEW HERE Snippet Half a dozen people spilled out from the double doors before Daphne finally made an appearance. 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...
