Review: When Snowflakes Fall & Like Fresh Fallen Snow by Tara Wyatt

Review: When Snowflakes Fall & Like Fresh Fallen Snow by Tara Wyatt When Snowflakes Fall (#1) Like Fresh Fallen Snow (#2) Author: Tara Wyatt Reviewer: Nima Ratings: B+ and B What I’m Talking About: I have a soft spot for novellas, especially holiday ones.  They are these little mini escapes in the midst of chaos; something I can start and finish while juggling shopping, baking, and obligations. They are a little reminder that sweets are not just cookies from the neighborhood exchange. Both of these holiday offerings are wonderfully sweet and fat-free. When Snowflakes Fall is the first of two stories about the twin Grayson brothers, Luke and Matt. I preferred Luke’s story over Matt’s, Like Fresh Fallen Snow, probably because...

Review: Fish out of Water by Hailey Edwards

Review: Fish out of Water by Hailey Edwards Fish Out of Water Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: If you haven’t been following my reviews of Hailey Edwards’ Black Dog books, GO! GET ON THAT! Fish Out of Water is a plot resolution from the spinoff Gemini series, featuring Cam. It DEFINITELY needs to be read after Hell or High Water—seriously, don’t mess with the series order, folks. I had a lot of questions about Harlow at the conclusion of the third title in the Gemini series, and Fish Out of Water clears them all up for me. It was super nice to see Harlow again. I must admit, I really adore...

Review: A Most Extraordinary Pursuit by Juliana Gray

Review: A Most Extraordinary Pursuit by Juliana Gray A Most Extraordinary Pursuit Author: Juliana Gray Reviewer: Ang Rating: C What I’m Talking About: If you are familiar with my reviews, you know that I enjoy Juliana Gray’s work and typically rate it fairly high. I am disappointed to say that wasn’t so much the case with A Most Extraordinary Pursuit. When I received the title I was excited to continue the adventures with the Duke of Olympia’s tribe, and although Olympia clearly has a hand in this story, I found it to be nothing like Ms. Gray’s other novels. I realize that doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but I really struggled with her changed format...

Review: Dangerously Charming by Deborah Blake

Review: Dangerously Charming by Deborah Blake Dangerously Charming Author: Deborah Blake Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: I must admit, I was pretty excited when I learned Deborah Blake had a new series starting. Fans of her Baba Yaga series will see familiar characters in the Broken Riders novels. However, if you’re new to this world, like me, Ms. Blake does a fabulous job of bringing her new readers up-to-speed. I really like the world-building. As I was reading, I didn’t find anything left out—everything was explained well, and wasn’t overdone. Sometimes, when I read a paranormal story, the author explains and re-explains. Um. I got it the first time; thanks for the...

Test Post October 10, 2016

Test Post October 10, 2016 Dear Friends. Thank you for your continued patience as I deal with a blog issue. When I pre-schedule a post, for some reason Jetpack does not send my subscribers an email, nor does it cross-post to Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. While not serious, this issue is annoying and time consuming. Plus, my email subscribers are missing out on the posts. Anyhow, this is a post testing the system, again. I hope you are enjoying your...
