Counsellor by Celia Aaron

Counsellor by Celia Aaron

Not my idea of a hot date! A dark romance is a term that sometimes makes me shudder even though it is my preferred genre. It’s combining romance with darkness in this story that made me twitchy. If I was to be wooed by courtship, my door would be slammed shut at the first mention… Read more »

Vengeance Road by Christine Feehan

Vengeance Road by Christine Feehan

When I read the first book in the Torpedo Ink series, Judgment Road, I liked it but I felt a bit lost since I hadn’t read either the Drake Sisters or the Sea Haven series that this series spun off from. I still haven’t gotten around to reading the other series and other than giving me… Read more »

Claiming The Enemy: Dustin by Jamie Begley

Claiming The Enemy: Dustin by Jamie Begley

Geez Louise, have I been in one heck of a book slump.  I was practically jumping up and down with joy when I finished Claiming the Enemy. I even looked at my husband and said, “I like it. I really like it!” His response was, “Oh, thank God!” I may have been a tad bit whiny… Read more »

Untouchable: A Bully Romance by Sam Mariano

Untouchable: A Bully Romance by Sam Mariano

Where’s Karma when you need it? Sam Mariano’s stories are dark, dangerous and totally addictive. This is why I never pass up an opportunity to read one of her books. Untouchable had me a wee bit nervous though. The foreword contains an explicit warning. Heed it carefully. Try a sample because you will have a good… Read more »

Verona Blood by Lili St. Germain

Verona Blood by Lili St. Germain

With the promise of a dark Romeo and Juliet story promoted to readers who enjoyed reading Gypsy Brothers, I was ready. Patiently waiting for some months, I devoured Verona Blood in two sittings. I could have easily read through without stopping but I needed to stop to feed the family. Verona Blood is graphic and… Read more »

Up In Smoke by T.M. Frazier

Up In Smoke by T.M. Frazier

The synopsis to Up In Smoke caught my attention in a huge way and it’s a standalone so I decided to go against my usual MO of reading a series in order and grabbed it. I had read the first two books in the King series and loved them in spite of (or maybe because… Read more »

Unattainable by Madeline Sheehan

Unattainable by Madeline Sheehan

  Another edgy, raw and compelling addition to the Undeniable series which must be read in order. The first time I read Unattainable I did so as soon as it was released back in 2012. At the time I wished I’d reread the first two books in the series to get me in the right… Read more »

Defining Human By Candace Blevins

Defining Human By Candace Blevins

I’m a huge fan of the Only Human series along with the other series of Ms. Blevins it’s connected with. This means I’ve been impatiently waiting for Defining Human for quite a while. I read it straight through, staying up until the wee hours of the morning to finish. Normally this would mean I loved… Read more »
