Review: Falling Light by Thea Harrison

Review: Falling Light by Thea Harrison Falling Light Author: Thea Harrison  Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Falling Light is the follow up tale to Rising Darkness and the concluding story of the 2-book Game of Shadows series. Although I was confused and a bit bored with the first book, it effectively maps out the world and rules, which are crucial for understanding and enjoying the second story. With that said, I highly recommend you read Rising Darkness prior to picking up Falling Light. Also note, this review contains spoilers from the first book. Falling Light opens immediately after the closing of the first book when our hero and heroine survived a...

Review: Scarlet Devices by Delphine Dryden

Review: Scarlet Devices by Delphine Dryden Scarlet Devices Author: Delphine Dryden  Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: After reading Gossamer Wing, I was curious about who the next story would focus on.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that Scarlet Devices is the journey of Matthew and Eliza.  After the espionage and intrigue of Gossamer Wing, I wasn’t sure what to expect with Matthew and Eliza, but I thoroughly enjoyed this second novel in the Steam and Seduction series. Please note: this world is an alternate history; most notably this steam punk is based in a world where the revolutionary war never occurred.  If you are interested in reading this fascinating series, please...

Review & Giveaway: Rule Breaker by Lora Leigh

Review & Giveaway: Rule Breaker by Lora Leigh Rule Breaker Author: Lora Leigh Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Yes… Rule Breaker is the twenty-ninth title in Lora Leigh’s Breed Series (this includes all of the novellas). I know that sometimes I can’t believe I’ve stuck around with this series for this long. But I just can’t quit it. It’s my crack. And while there have been some not as great titles in recent history, I am happy to report that Rule Breaker is an exciting and passionate story – better than the last few. Nine years ago, Gypsy Rum McQuade was kidnapped by council Coyote Breeds and forced to watch her big brother...

Review & Giveaway: Letting Go by Maya Banks

Review & Giveaway: Letting Go by Maya Banks Letting Go Author: Maya Banks Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: I was very excited to be offered the opportunity to read the first book in Maya Banks’ Surrender Trilogy. I was introduced to Ms. Banks’ contemporary writing in her Breathless Trilogy last year, and thoroughly enjoyed every title. Letting Go was a great introduction to the new series, which promises love, challenges, and a whole lot of sexytime! At the onset of the title, Joss is in mourning for her husband that passed away three years ago. Visiting Carson, the love of her life, at his gravesite is something that Joss has done yearly, accompanied by...

Review: Gossamer Wing by Delphine Dryden

Review: Gossamer Wing by Delphine Dryden Gossamer Wing Author: Delphine Dryden Reviewer: Una Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Gossamer Wing is the debut novel in a new steampunk series.  The Steam and Seduction series is science-light and romance driven, with some espionage on the side. I recommend visiting the author’s website to get an overview of this series before you start Gossamer Wing.  It is advantageous to learn some background that you cannot glean from reading.  This is an alternate universe – one in which the American Revolution did not occur.  Not that this is a key element to the plot line, but it clears up some minor confusion I had while reading regarding...

Review: Bitter Spirits by Jenn Bennett

Review: Bitter Spirits by Jenn Bennett Bitter Spirits Author: Jenn Bennett Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I’ve been especially fortunate lately in discovering several “new-to-me authors” that I might not have otherwise chosen for myself by reviewing books. These stories have surprised me for a variety of reasons, oftentimes simply by drawing me thoroughly into the narrative from the very beginning when I had no idea what to expect. Bitter Spirits certainly falls into this category, immediately delving into several things that I’ve always enjoyed reading about, most especially the 1920’s, an impossible romance, and a good mystery. The main characters are unique as well as being a puzzle in and of...

Review: How to Master Your Marquis by Juliana Gray

Review: How to Master Your Marquis by Juliana Gray How to Master Your Marquis Author: Juliana Gray Reviewer: Ang Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: What I enjoy about Juliana Gray’s books are that they are unconventional tales of betrayal, trust and ultimately redemption. Rather than the typical damsel in distress, she gives us charmingly flawed heroes and smart, strong women who find themselves in odd situations doing highly dangerous things. How to Master Your Marquis was no different. Our hero Haltherfield is a charming, devoted, strong, scarred and wounded hero who finds his path to redemption in Stephanie, a princess in hiding working as a law clerk. She is snarky, cheeky, funny and excellent to read. Together they are...

Review: Hope Flames by Jaci Burton

Review: Hope Flames by Jaci Burton Hope Flames Author: Jaci Burton  Reviewer: Nima Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Hope Ignites is the first full length novel in the Hope Series. We were first introduced to the little town of Hope, Oklahoma, in author Jaci Burton’s contribution, “Hope Smolders,” to the Hot Summer Nights anthology released in July of 2013.  According to her author bio, Burton resides in Oklahoma and repeats the success of authors like Ruthie Knox who imagined the little hamlet of Camelot, Ohio, the state of which she is a resident, in her Camelot Series.  As a reader, the authenticity of the author’s connection with the geographical area is apparent, and I...
