Picture a future where our environment has been destroyed by human selfishness. Birds no longer fly high in the sky, animals are scarce and food is even scarcer. Humanity is dwindling away from starvation and an inability to survive in this harsh new reality. Government has fallen and The Reestablishment has stepped up to fill the void. The Reestablishment is all about control.
I love Accidental Sex Goddess by Lexi Ryan. I love the dialogue. I love the heart. I love the heat and the humor. I empathized with the heroine Reese and laughed at some of the things she was requested to do in the Sex Goddess course. I’m a work in progress too and I appreciated that the class wasn’t focused on the reflection, but on the attitude and confidence of the individual.
Amy Gregory gives us a story about Jesse Frost, a motorcycle racer who has sworn off women to focus on winning. Family problems cause his regular mechanic to quit mid season leaving Jesse fearing for his position on the podium. Trusting the word of his manager, Reid Kincaid, Jesse agrees to take on a new mechanic. He just never imagined it would be a women or that he would fall head over heels for her at their first meeting.
Do you like urban fantasy? Have you read the Cassandra Bick Chronicles yet? If not, go get them. 😀 I loved the first book, Dark Dates. Click HERE for my review. And I have been impatiently waiting for the second instalment. The author, Tracey Sinclair, heard my whining <g> and she released two, count ’em, TWO novella in the past few months to help tide me over. Yes *nods* It’s all for me 😛
A Vampire Walks Into A Bar and A Vampire Christmas are fast, fun reads that build your understanding of the characters and their world. Yes, they could be read without reading Dark Dates… But why deny yourself the fun of entering Cassandra’s world of supernatural London with a heavy dose of snark, danger and smexy times? Check out this series!
I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting into when I read The X. I knew it was a suspense story…. But honestly? that’s about it. I stepped out of my comfort zone and took a chance. The X is a book I likely wouldn’t have picked up on my own, but I’m glad it came into my hands. I would have missed out on a thriller that hooked me from the heroine’s first shocking life change until the action packed ending.
I was a bit surprised and how much I loved this book because In Her Sights is romantic suspense and I’ve been on a urban fantasy, paranormal romance kick for a while. But I devoured this book! Raced through it and was reminded of my love for mystery and romantic suspense. I grew up on mystery, I love Karen Robards, Mary Stewart, Elizabeth Lowel… I just haven’t read the genre in a while.
In Her Sights is by Charley Colins, aka Keri Ford and I recommend you give it a try if you like your characters to be complex and layered. I am eagerly waiting for the sequel to delve deeper into Lexie’s past and present and see what unfolds for her… I also want more Clay! *sigh*
Any other fans of Jane Austen out there in Tartlandia, or am I alone? If there are no other fans, WHY NOT?!? …I know, I know, “To each his own,” right?
Well, I am an unabashed fan. I have read all six of her novels (my favorite and most beloved being Pride & Prejudice). I enjoy most of the books’ film adaptations (although my favorite P&P ones are the updated versions: Bridget Jones’ Diary and the YouTube series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries .
I have been intrigued by older woman, younger man relationships since I read my first romance with that dynamic when I was a teen. (It was Jude Deveraux’s The Invitation) When I read the synopsis for Karen Booth’s For Keeps I knew I had to try it… I’m just sorry I waited so long. I read it a few weekends ago on a plane ride and I couldn’t put it down until the final page. I loved the tenderness and the heat. 😉
I was hooked first by the cover. Yes, I’m shallow. 😛 Covers do matter. I love this cover with it’s atmospheric fog, blue and silver colors and the mysterious man in the rather great coat. 🙂 Then I read the synopsis and decided to give the story a try, so I bought the kindle book. I’d never read Lacy and didn’t know what to expect.
