Smashwords book reviews by Donna McDonald

  • Sparring Partners on March 11, 2011

    If you want a romance that truly makes you feel good at the end of the story, this is one to read.
  • A Tale of Two Goblins on March 25, 2011

    I downloaded the first book just as a way to read something in a genre that was new to me, but ended up falling in love with the story and the characters. You can't help but admire Mallory's fairy cop. These novels are addictive and lots of fun. I'm hooked and will be definitely be buying future releases. Thanks for a very enjoyable read!
  • An Inconvenient Marriage on May 10, 2011

    I am not normally a fan of stories with historical settings, but was so caught up in these characters that I forgot and had to have the whole book. Nordin does a wonderful job making you care about what happens to both the hero and heroine. This author definitely leaves you wanting more after the book is done.
  • A Breed Apart on May 10, 2011

    I don't read many books with a Western setting, but I really liked this one. It was entertaining from beginning to end. When I read I like to get involved with the characters which only works if the author creates interesting heroes and heroines like Charlotte Raby does. This book is definitely worth the purchase price.
  • The Geek Job on July 19, 2011

    I enjoyed the story line and the strong heroine. I would definitely consider reading more books by this author. There was lots of action for those of you who like that in books.
  • Slave To Her Desires on July 19, 2011

    Storyline and characters were mesmerizing from the beginning. I had never read about a succubus before and probably won't be looking for more books on them. (I don't like their lack of control over their situation, but I get the need for the story.) Still I read this whole book and enjoyed it because this author has the kind of writing that just grabs you. If this subject matter is for you, the book is well worth the money.
  • Kept (Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy: Blood Lust, novella 1) on Aug. 05, 2011

    Story premise was very good. Paranormal world was interesting and therian "facts" kept me intrigued. The biggest shortcoming was that the story wasn't long enough to get me as involved with the characters as I wanted to be. Dayne was fascinating, all that old magic, but I know so little about him. Also, I craved more background on what was going on. I would recommend this book because I definitely intend to buy others in this series in the hopes of finding out more.
