Review: Once upon a Maiden Lane by Elizabeth Hoyt

Review: Once upon a Maiden Lane by Elizabeth Hoyt Once upon a Maiden Lane Author: Elizabeth Hoyt Reviewer: Jen Rating: B What I’m Talking About: After a case of mistaken identity, Lord Henry Blackwell identifies the orphaned Miss Mary Whitsun as Lady Cecilia Albright, the long-lost daughter of an earl, the very woman he is supposed to wed. She is welcomed by her birth mother and twin sister, and even finds friendship with, and an attraction to, her betrothed. However, after two near misses on her life, it appears not everyone is pleased with Henry’s discovery. Once upon a Maiden Lane is a sweet, standalone novella that appears to wrap up the wonderful Maiden Lane series. As a...

Review: Too Hard to Forget by Tessa Bailey

Review: Too Hard to Forget by Tessa Bailey Too Hard to Forget Author: Tessa Bailey Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I may have devoured Peggy’s story in one sitting. I may have actually re-read parts, too. When reading the Romancing the Clarksons series by Tessa Bailey, I’m entranced by the familial connection, the depth of the characters, and the build up to the next book, Too Beautiful to Break—Belmont & Sage’s book. While we’re three-deep in the series already, if one were to jump in right here, there’s some lost backstory and outcomes for two other siblings—and the buildup to the final title in the series—but it could be read on its own. Readers...

Review: Hot Nights with the Fireman by Lynne Silver

Review: Hot Nights with the Fireman by Lynne Silver Hot Nights with the Fireman Author: Lynne Silver Reviewer: Nima Rating: D What I’m Talking About: Lynne Silver is a new-to-me author.  Hot Nights with the Fireman is the first in her Alpha Heroes series. It’s the heated love story of fire fighter Jason Moore and ambitious public relations expert Valerie Wainwright. It should have been a quick read at only 65K words, but I found myself stopping constantly because of technical errors. Typically when reading an advanced reader copy, there is an expectation that the manuscript being reviewed is not yet polished for publication. Allowances are made for missing commas and the odd word that’s gone astray.  Unfortunately,...

Review: Revenant by Larissa Ione

Review: Revenant by Larissa Ione Revenant Author: Larissa Ione Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: How do I summarize a story that has been in the making for ten whole books (well at least five books)?! Revenant is not only the wonderful story of a broken male finding love, but the exciting culmination and climax of the ultimate battle between the heavens and  underworld that began back with the first Lords of Deliverance title. Because of the nature of this series, I strongly urge one NOT to read Revenant as a stand alone book. You will be confused. There is such a huge amount of back story that even I was a bit...
