Sunday Snippet – Targeted

Sunday Snippet – Targeted  About the Book Targeted Author:  Katie Reus Publisher:   Signet Released:  October 1, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet “What is this place?” Sophie finally said as she slowly pulled out the pepper spray from her pocket.  He’d parked in between two unused warehouses he’d scouted out earlier.  Bayside Marketplace wasn’t that far from where they were – hell, he could actually see Port Boulevard Bridge jutting over Biscayne Bay – but for how quiet and desolate the area seemed, they might as well be a thousand miles away.  He glanced at her hand and shook his head. “You can keep that if it makes you feel better, but you don’t need it against me. ...

Sunday Snippet – Long Shot

Sunday Snippet – Long Shot        About the Book Long Shot Author:  Hanna Martine Publisher:   Berkley Released:  October, 1, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet “Leith MacDougall, what a surprise!”  Evidently Sue McCurdy did know how to smile, and it was when the town’s celebrity was in touching distance.  Today’s Syracuse T-shirt was navy blue, and the age-inappropriate hairstyle was pigtails sticking out from just behind her ears.  The mayor stood in the open door of Town Hall, beaming right over Jen’s head at the big man at her back.  “To what do I owe this pleasure?”  Leith moved to Jen’s side, crowding her on the small front stoop, their arms touching briefly.  “Just dropping off...

Sunday Snippet – The Lotus Palace

Sunday Snippet – The Lotus Palace    About the Book The Lotus Palace Author:  Jeannie Lin Publisher:   Harlequin Released:   August 23, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet … Yue-ying went downstairs to fetch a plate of red bean cakes from the kitchen as it seemed the men would stay awhile.  When she returned, the old historian had turned the conversation back to the imperial court. “This is an opportunity to advise the Emperor that he must change course.  Heaven has given us a sign.  Earthquakes and floods have ben known to topple dynasties,” the historian pointed out sagely. Bai Huang was already shaking his head.  “A sign of what?  It sounds more like superstitious doomsaying,” he said with a...

Review: Daylighters by Rachel Caine

Review: Daylighters by Rachel Caine Daylighters Author: Rachel Caine Reviewer: Una Rating: A-, 4 Stars What I’m Talking About: Wow…I am speechless over the final book in the Morganville Vampires series.  I started this series from reading a novella (how Eve came to be a member of the Glass House) and enjoyed the novella so much, I started the series with the first book.  Daylighters ties this series up with a big red bow it seems.  Although there is the option, if Ms. Caine decides, for us to be able to return to Morganville.  However, the story of Claire and her Glass House friends has come full circle, and I’m happy to say, the...

Sunday Snippet – Under a Spell

Sunday Snippet – Under a Spell    About the Book Under a Spell Author:  Hannah Jayne  Publisher:   Kensington Released:  August 6, 2013  REVIEW HERE Snippet I groaned and grabbed my door, flinging it open.  “Nina, what the hell is go–” “Shhhh!”  I was met by a chorus of angry hisses and then the business end of a megaphone as Nina yelled, “Cut!” directly into my face.  She pinched her icy, bony fingers around my elbow and yanked me into the kitchen, which had miraculously gone from cozy mess to break room chic: our mismatched collection of hand-me-down mugs with unappetizing statements — Carrie for Prom Queen, The Problem is Gonorrhea— had been replaced by an orderly heap of...

Sunday Snippet – Blood Bond

Sunday Snippet – Blood Bond    About the Book Blood Bond Author:  Jeanne C. Stein Publisher:   ACE Released:  August 27, 2013  REVIEW HERE Snippet Next morning, Frey and I are the last to the breakfast table. I’m glad no one asks why.  It would be embarrassing.  Even an adult daughter doesn’t want to acknowledge that she’s late coming down because she and her fiancé were having sex.  Lots of sex.  Great sex.  Sex so good I didn’t want stop.  When I feel color start up the back of my neck, I decide what I’d better do is stop thinking about it. I slink into a chair at the table and reach for the coffeepot.  “Where are the...

Review: Long Shot by Hanna Martine

Review: Long Shot by Hanna Martine Long Shot Author: Hanna Martine  Reviewer: Una Rating: A-, 4 Stars What I’m Talking About: Long Shot is the premier novel in the new Highland Games series by Hanna Martine.  In short, for a non-contemporary lover like me – I loved it!  I mean, seriously, what’s not to love; men in kilts showing off skills and serious muscles = melt! As I have said before, I prefer my romance with some paranormal or fantasy element blended in, if not at least some murder or mystery.  I typically do not read strict contemporary romance.  However, when I saw that Ms. Martine was starting a new series with men in kilts, I...

Sunday Snippet – Possession

Sunday Snippet – Possession    About the Book Possession Author:  Kat Richardson  Publisher:   ROC Released:  August 6, 2013  REVIEW HERE Snippet “Any luck?” I asked, hearing Wrothen snort in derision behind me. “Depends on how you define that.  Lots of ghosts around, but they aren’t talking to me.”  Then he drew and excited breath and perked up, staring over my shoulder toward the bed.  “Oh! She’s up!” “No, she’s not,” the nurse snapped, looking at the monitors and making rapid notes on an electronic clipboard.  “Her blood pressure is up, and she’s upright, but she’s not awake.” “I didn’t say she was awake,” Stymak objected. Ignoring the argument, Goss rushed toward the bed and I followed...

Sunday Snippet – Vicious Moon

Sunday Snippet – Vicious Moon    About the Book Vicious Moon Author:  Lee Roland Publisher:   Signet Released:  July 2, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet We sat at the table, and oh, it felt good to be there.  Stupid, I was totally stupid.  But I had to get to the reason I’d been kidnapped. “Gran, why did you send the Sisters of Justice after me?  That’s pretty drastic.  You must have pulled in some favors.  Especially if you got them to put up with Herschel.” “There is one Sister I call a friend.  A powerful Sister.  I asked her to find you and to take Herschel so you wouldn’t be frightened and run from them.  They probably shouldn’t...

Review: The Lotus Palace by Jeannie Lin

Review: The Lotus Palace by Jeannie Lin The Lotus Palace Author: Jeannie Lin  Reviewer: Una Rating: A, 4.5 Stars What I’m Talking About: The Lotus Palace is the first novel in a new Tang Dynasty series by Jeannie Lin.  Ms. Lin is a new-to-me author, and I am so excited to have volunteered for The Lotus Palace.  Suffice to say, I was enchanted, engaged and enthralled, the three E’s to which lead to me absolutely loving a new book.  This story reminds me in a way of Pretty Woman crossed with L.A. Confidential and yet is solely its own.  A hauntingly beautiful love story crossed with a fascinating detective drama, all of which seems impossible and...
