Review: Talking Dirty with the CEO (Talking Dirty #1) by Jackie Ashenden

Talking Dirty with the CEO was a great read! I’ve been blowing back and forth in the literary wind for the past few days: I feel like I have a minor case of book hangover plus there are several not quite finished books I need to finish and review. It’s… Read more »

Review: Two’s A Couple, Three’s The Law by Eve Langlais

I consider myself an Eve Lanlais fan – I’ve read and enjoyed many of her books. I also consider myself a fan of menage romances – what can I say? I like reading about a little DP… When I heard about Two’s A Couple, Three’s The Law being released (December… Read more »

Review: Silent Blade (Kinsmen #1) by Ilona Andrews

Another good one from the Andrews! I’m such a fan. I’ve heard of Silent Blade (and the Kinsmen series) before but I often get caught up in the more recent work released by Ilona Andrews. I ended up finally getting to Kinsmen deep in an Ilona Andrews glomming: I’d read… Read more »

This book hit me in many different ways: First, I love the fact that Iris is a snarky little thing. 🙂 I appreciated her attitude and her refusal to be cowed by “people” (vampires) more powerful than she. On the other hand, Iris also has a BIG MOUTH. Considering that… Read more »

Quite some time ago I read a book by Shelly Laurenston titled Hunting Season (The Gathering, #1).

Review: Stranded with the Tycoon by Sophie Pembroke

Recently I stopped by the library to pick up a few books I placed on hold. I decided to wander around the stacks a bit – purely out of nostalgia as this library is NOT well appointed – and I ran across a handful of Romance novels sitting on a… Read more »
