Review: Somewhere to Dream by Genevieve Graham

Review: Somewhere to Dream by Genevieve Graham Somewhere to Dream Author: Genevieve Graham  Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Every time a Genevieve Graham title comes through, I’m on it. I really like the MacDonnells series, and I’m glad I picked up the first title, Under the Same Sky as well as the second title, Sound of the Heart. I’m excited that the series keeps getting better for me, with subsequent titles. While Ms. Graham appears to be a kindred spirit, bringing the Scots as well as Native Americans into her writing (personal areas of interest), she does so respectfully and with accuracy. What I adored about this book was the way the reader...

Review: The Luckiest Lady in London by Sherry Thomas

Review: The Luckiest Lady in London by Sherry Thomas The Luckiest Lady In London Author: Sherry Thomas Reviewer: Ang Rating: A-, 4 Stars What I’m Talking About: One of the things I love about a Sherry Thomas book is that the author always gives us characters with well-developed back-stories complete with realistic issues, quirks, and intellectual interests. Her heroes are deeply flawed and her heroines are smart, funny and all enjoy pursuits outside of searching for the best catch of the season. The Luckiest Lady in London did not disappoint in any of these regards. Not unlike Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, The Luckiest Lady in London plot revolves around Louisa’s search for a husband worth at least 5,000 pounds...

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...

Review: The Wife He Always Wanted by Cheryl Ann Smith

Review: The Wife He Always Wanted by Cheryl Ann Smith The Wife He Always Wanted Author: Cheryl Ann Smith Reviewer: Ang Rating: B-, 3 Stars What I’m Talking About: I want to like Cheryl Ann Smith’s novels. She steps out of the box and mixes Victorian period romances with decent mysteries. My struggle is that in every book I’ve read of hers one side of the story or the other suffers, The Wife He Always Wanted was no exception. It starts out strong. Rough and rowdy cowboy shows up at the door rescue the struggling and starving maiden and sister of his best friend, except he isn’t a cowboy–he is a gentlemen, and off they go on an adventure to...

Review: Behind His Blue Eyes by Kaki Warner

Review: Behind His Blue Eyes by Kaki Warner Behind His Blue Eyes Author: Kaki Warner Reviewer: Ang Rating: C What I’m Talking About: Let me start by saying I REALLY REALLY like Kaki Warner’s writing. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book I have read by her up to this point. I love the way she captures the Colorado frontier. I adore her handsome, haunted, brave heroes and her beautiful, feisty, smart heroines. She is a master of showing what is going on and capturing a moment or feeling. Her relationships are fun to read, the danger is real and I wait with baited breath for the kidnapping or other trouble to come and for the gallant hero...

Review: Guardian Demon by Meljean Brook

Review: Guardian Demon by Meljean Brook Guardian Demon Author: Meljean Brook Reviewer: Twimom227 Rating: A+, 5 Stars What I’m Talking About: The end is finally here. After waiting almost two years for Ms. Brook’s grand finale to her marvelous Guardian series, I started Guardian Demon with mixed feelings. I was excited to finally read Michael’s book… I was sad knowing this was the end of one of my favorite series. So on that note… Let me share with you my thoughts. Please note: as the eighth and final book of this series, it truly is not meant for the first time reader, and my review will inevitably contain spoilers from earlier books in the series....
