Review: In Her Court by Tamsen Parker

Review: In Her Court by Tamsen Parker In Her Court Author: Tamsen Parker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: This is my first venture into Camp Firefly Falls, and Tamsen Parker totally brings it in the eighteenth story in the multi-author series. I love all things Tamsen Parker—this is no secret. In In Her Court, there was this undercurrent of pop culture that drew me in and kept me riveted. Well, along with Van and Willa—our main characters. Because, hoo-boy, these girls Got. It. On. I have a couple quotes from this book I’ll be sharing, and neither of them are too spoilery! First up, this gem from Van’s point of view: That was...

Author Guest Post: Tamsen Parker (In Her Court)

Author Guest Post: Tamsen Parker (In Her Court) Please welcome Tamsen Parker, who is here to talk about her new title, In Her Court, and the Camp Firefly Falls continuity. Sound interesting? Reading on… School’s back in session and leaves are starting to turn. Technically it’s not autumn yet, but let’s face it. Fall is here. But if you feel like some instant nostalgia for warmer and more carefree days, or if you’ve always loved Dirty Dancing, have I got a series for you. Plus, you can even start reading it for free with Winning Back His Wife. Gwen Hayes and Zoe York came up with the idea for a continuity set at a grown-up summer camp. Who...

Review: Rogue Desire Anthology

Review: Rogue Desire Anthology Rogue Desire Author: Various Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I didn’t have time to read all the titles in this collection of stories—but those that I did, did something for my perspective. It isn’t a She Persisted thing anymore, folks. It’s a We Persisted thing. I may have had moments of despair for the past nine months, wondering what kind of world my kids were going to have to live in, but if these inspirational—absolutely filthy—stories are any indication, there’s a world of hope out there. Maybe all we have to do is grab on to our own little slice of it. In Adriana Anders’ Grassroots, I...

Sunday Snippet: Life, Liberty and Worship by Tamsen Parker

Sunday Snippet: Life, Liberty and Worship by Tamsen Parker  About the Book Life, Liberty, and Worship (from Rogue Desire Anthology)    Author:  Tamsen Parker Publisher:   Self-published Released:  July 20, 2017 Genre:  Romance (range from sweet to erotic) Author contact links:   Website Purchase links:  Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, iBooks, Kobo Snippet: Paige Robinson didn’t hate people. Disliked them, yes. Disagreed with them, certainly. Could live a long, happy life without ever seeing or speaking to certain people, of course. But the man she’d come to think of as Dick? She loathed him. Also wanted to f**k him into next week, but that was beside the point. Mostly she hated him. A lot. Spin class was supposed to be...

Review: The Cartographer by Tamsen Parker

Review: The Cartographer by Tamsen Parker The Cartographer Author: Tamsen Parker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I can’t imagine Rey’s book being more perfect. If you’ve been reading Tamsen Parker’s Compass series, you know Rey Walter—the kink puppeteer/matchmaker. I’ve always been curious about Rey, but never did I imagine the revelations in The Cartographer. As always, I’m keeping this review spoiler-free. Which means it’s going to be short 😉 Allie Hart is an awesome guy. He hasn’t had an easy life but he’s responsible and committed. Not committed to someone else, though. Like, not romantically. I found myself wanting to slap Allie up-side the head and tell him to let Rey help....

Review: His Custody by Tamsen Parker

Review: His Custody by Tamsen Parker His Custody Author: Tamsen Parker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I don’t even know where to start. I have to admit I may have had a seriously uneasy feeling at the beginning of this story—until about the halfway mark. But, I trust Tamsen Parker to deliver a deep, thoughtful read that pushes me past my personal limits. And, this title **really** pushed me for a plethora of reasons. There’s a huge age discrepancy between Keyne (pronounced Cain, like Cain & Abel) and Jasper. That isn’t a problem for me, normally. I love me a good May-December romance. This title falls more under the barely legal, though....

Review: Due South by Tamsen Parker

Review: Due South by Tamsen Parker Due South Author: Tamsen Parker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A  What I’m Talking About: Interested in a thrill-of-discovery / new exploration book? Due South might be just what you’re looking for. This is the secret-office-romance trope—and man, I love it. Especially when it’s taboo! The blurb gives us the basis for the plot, but what it doesn’t mention is how DEEP these characters are. Ms. Parker has done a phenomenal job with her other Compass titles, and I didn’t expect anything less from Due South. Here’s a run-down on my connection to the characters. Lucy is the typical corn-belt girl gone to make the big time in California. Her innocence...

Sunday Snippet + Giveaway: Due South by Tamsen Parker

Sunday Snippet + Giveaway: Due South by Tamsen Parker  About the Book Due South    Author:  Tamsen Parker Publisher:   Self-published Released:  December 12, 2016 Series:   Compass #5 Genre:  Erotic Romance Author contact links:   Facebook, Twitter, Website Purchase links:  Amazon, ARe, Google Play, iBooks, Kobo Snippet: “We can’t keep doing this.” “Doing what? We’re just…” She narrows her eyes, giving me a meaningful glare. “Oh, right, that. Well, yeah, of course not.” My heart sinks through the soles of my shoes and into a sad puddle on the floor, but am I surprised? No. I was lucky to get what I had, and I shouldn’t be so greedy. Of course Lucy doesn’t want to keep having some sordid breakroom affair....

Review: School Ties by Tamsen Parker

Review: School Ties by Tamsen Parker School Ties Author: Tamsen Parker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: When I started reading School Ties by Tamsen Parker, I thought I was going to have to tap out about halfway through. Erin is a math teacher at a private boys’ school. She has the hots for one of her students, but does nothing about it (good girl, Erin). Since it’s a dual POV story, we find out Shep (nickname) is seriously crushing on her, too. And **something** happens almost immediately after Shep graduates. But I didn’t tap out. I did have the heebies (um, hello?!? Teacher), but got over them pretty quickly once I hit...

Review: True North by Tamsen Parker

Review: True North by Tamsen Parker True North Author: Tamsen Parker Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Get your one-click on, folks. Aficionados of BDSM tales will devour Tamsen Parker’s Compass series. True North, the fourth title, delivers with Parker’s attention to detail, emotional draw, and truly likable characters I wanna just have coffee with, share some stories, and be complete besties with. Let’s be honest here. I was worried when I started reading True North. I don’t have many triggers—at least ones that will make me drop a book like a piece of pottery fresh from firing. I considered it with this title. I’m SUPER glad I didn’t. Here’s your trigger warning,...
