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collection of hand-me-down mugs with unappetizing statements — Carrie for Prom Queen, The Problem is Gonorrhea— had been replaced by an orderly heap of...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...

Sunday Snippet – Bite Me

Sunday Snippet – Bite Me    About the Book Bite Me Author:  P J Schnyder Publisher:   Carina Press Released:  June 24, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet “I want a blood sample.” Seth narrowed his eyes. “Why?” “Whatever it is you’re on, I figure it’d be useful to help the newer wolves with their rage control.”  Danny paused.  “Or I could sell it as a recreation drug.  I’d make a fortune.” Seth tossed a towel at the pack medic and stood up from the weight bench where he’d been pressing more weight than any three human body builders could have handled.  “Get on, then.” “Seriously, man, I left you out on a solo patrol cause you had to...

Sunday Snippet – The Magic of ‘I Do’

Sunday Snippet – The Magic of ‘I Do’    About the Book The Magic of ‘I Do’ Author:  Tammy Falkner Publisher:   Sourcebooks Released:  June 4, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet One bedchamber?  Was the man daft?  There was no possible way Claire was going to share a bedchamber with him.  “Have you lost your sense?” she hissed as Benny stalked out of the kitchen toward the front of the house.  “I will not share a bedchamber with you.” “I’m afraid you don’t have a choice, Miss Thorne,” Fin drawled.  “Trust me, the idea of it doesn’t settle well with me either.” He didn’t like the idea of sharing a bedchamber?  She highly doubted that .  A small part of her was momentarily...

Review: Shivering Sands by Victoria Holt

Review: Shivering Sands by Victoria Holt Shivering Sands Author: Victoria Holt Reviewer: Una Rating: DNF What I’m Talking About: I was surprised to find that this novel, Shivering Sands is not a new book but a republished one.  That being said, this is not the type of historical novel I read.  I enjoy historical mysteries and suspense along with historical romances.  My problem with Shivering Sands is the narration.  I find the main character too focused on the trivial while not conveying items or snippets of importance.  I feel as is Caro is giving us a stream of consciousness account of a past experience.  In many ways I feel this novel to attempt to be...

Sunday Snippets – A Cursed Embrace

Sunday Snippets – A Cursed Embrace    About the Book A Cursed Embrace Author:  Cecy Robson Publisher:   Signet Released:  July 2, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet I perked up.  “Did you learn French, too?” Aric shrugged.  “A little here and there.” “Just enough to get some tail, Ceila.”  Liam spoke casually as if merely stating common knowledge.  He’d walked in to grab a pack of mini marshmallows from the pantry.  Too bad Emme hadn’t done so in his place. I didn’t need to know more about Aric’s sexual past.  The females who flaunted and threw themselves at him were enough evidence of his prowess. Liam did a double take when he caught my open mouth and almost dropped...
