Review: Prosperity by Alexis Hall

Review: Prosperity by Alexis Hall Prosperity Author: Alexis Hall Reviewer: B. Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I’m beginning to believe that Alexis Hall is incapable of writing anything that isn’t completely wonderful in some way or other. Or in many ways, as is the case in Prosperity. As an ardent fan of most everything Steampunk, as well as having thoroughly enjoyed the author’s other works I’ve read to date, I was excited about this title even before I was offered the chance to review it. That it exceeded all my expectations was an added bonus, and being able to lose myself so fully in the narrative was a rare delight. While the gist...

Review: Precious Metals by L.A. Witt

Review: Precious Metals by L.A. Witt Precious Metals Author: L.A. Witt Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I was very eager to read this title, having enjoyed the first story in the Metals series a great deal, and I wasn’t disappointed. If Noble Metals succeeded in being imaginative and exciting, then this one was even better. Still set in during the gold rush in the Klondike, Precious Metals is the story of another pair of companions-turned-lovers, an invention worth killing (or dying) over, and a perilous journey through the frozen north. While both stories share certain similarities, there are enough differences between the respective situations of the main characters to allow Precious Metals...

Review: Through the Veil by Christi Snow

Review: Through the Veil by Christi Snow Through the Veil Author: Christi Snow Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Through the Veil, the newest title and series by Christi Snow, begins with a fascinatingly horrific premise: Mother Earth, wounded for too long by the very beings she gave life to, was forced to take steps to protect herself. Everything west of the Mississippi River, and those who occupied it, seems to have been completely lost to the ocean. What’s left has been split in half by the sudden appearance of a deep gorge, and, 40 years later, an impenetrable wall of mist called the “Veil.” Even worse, most of those initial survivors mysteriously died...

Review: A Highland Wolf Christmas by Terry Spear

Review: A Highland Wolf Christmas by Terry Spear A Highland Wolf Christmas Author: Terry Spear Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I am so glad to have finally been able to read Calla and Guthrie’s story. These two have been circling each other for a while now as secondary characters, and I very much enjoyed how their obvious fascination for one another played out. Although they’ve known each other for most of their lives, except for the time Calla’s family lived elsewhere, they really don’t know each other well at all. But, from the beginning of the book, Calla and Guthrie are revealed to be surprising and unpredictable, and it doesn’t take long for a...

Review: This Time Now by KT Grant

Review: This Time Now by KT Grant This Time Now Author: KT Grant Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Regret is never an easy thing to live with, but coming face-to-face with its source when you least expect it can be heartbreaking. Amanda Barkley and Billie Layne had big plans together before tragedy and circumstance tore them apart. Now, six years later, Billie is back and Amanda is still angry and hurting. While forgiveness isn’t a simple thing, second chances don’t happen often, and both women are about to learn that holding on to the past too tightly could cost them the very happiness they’ve been looking for. In This Time Now, Ms. Grant...

Review: Black Water by Faith Hunter

Review: Black Water by Faith Hunter Black Water Author: Faith Hunter Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Jane Yellowrock is back in this trio of short stories that go a long way toward easing the wait between full-length novels. Told from Jane’s perspective, they provide a more thorough look at some previously seen minor characters, introduce a few brand new ones, give readers a glimpse of a younger Jane just starting out, and reaffirm that, no, she really doesn’t get any down time. Ever. They’re also a good reminder that Jane is adept when it comes to vengeance, and that, very often, retribution is extremely satisfying. “Black Water,” which takes place between Blood...

Review: Hero of a Highland Wolf by Terry Spear

Review: Hero of a Highland Wolf by Terry Spear Hero of a Highland Wolf Author: Terry Spear Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Alpha through and through, Colleen Playfair is used to calling all the shots in her life, and has in no way needed, or wanted, anyone else’s approval. Having been raised in America by an alcoholic father, she is thrilled by the prospect of inheriting the Scottish castle that her family called home for generations. Fighting with the stubborn male currently managing the premises is a less-than-appealing proposition, but she’s never backed down before, and isn’t about to start now. Having dealt with one absentee (and usually drunk) heir from the Playfair family already,...

Joint Review: Not Fade Away by S.E. Jakes

Joint Review: Not Fade Away by S.E. Jakes Not Fade Away Author: SE Jakes Reviewer: Jen Twimom & B. Rating: A- (Jen) & A+ (B.) What We’re Talking About: Not Fade Away is a wonderful “slice of life” short set in the Hell or High Water series, which features hard, dark men who run under-the-radar black ops rescues. This story focuses on main characters Tom and Prophet, two men who have overcome tremendous personal demons to find happiness and, dare we say, love. Although Not Fade Away can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone novella, we do not recommend it, as readers will find more emotional gratification from following the pair on their journey starting...

Review: Home the Hard Way by Z.A. Maxfield

Review: Home the Hard Way by Z.A. Maxfield Home the Hard Way Author: Z. A. Maxfield Reviewer: B. Rating: A What I’m Talking About: When Dare Buckley left Palladian, he was a golden boy in mourning, and the town was a place of personal tragedy and loss. Going away meant starting over, and moving on wasn’t something he’d ever allowed himself to regret. As with all things not fully understood until much later, however, leaving usually means leaving someone behind, and Dare soon finds that the secrets that shaped the former children and the community he once knew run far deeper than he could have ever imagined. Isolated and stigmatized from the moment he arrived in town,...
