- The Color of Heaven
on March 06, 2011
The Color of Heaven is an amazing contemporary fiction novel. I wasn’t sure what to expect, so was surprised when I was so quickly drawn into Sophie’s story and did finish reading it in one sitting. I loved each of the characters; they were richly developed and so carefully woven into the story. And what a story – certainly loaded with joy and sadness, regret and forgiveness, and loss and new beginnings. But most of all, it was a love story. All different kinds of love: between a husband and wife, between friends, between child and parent. There were plenty of twists and turns and I laughed and I cried. I love a story that can make me cry! This is a must read and would definitely recommend.
- The Bride Price
on March 28, 2011
The Bride Price begins with Sara and Jamie Ford in their home in the Pacific Northwest. Sophie is seriously ill, waiting for a heart to be found for her. She wakes to find herself in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in 1863 – without Jamie. She has no idea why or how she got there, but has full recall of her life in Portland and of Jamie. Sara is found and taken in by a doctor and his family. She is elated when a soldier, looking just like Jamie, arrives. Unfortunately, he has no recollection of being married to Sara or their life together. Will Sara be able to help Jamie recover his memory? Will they survive the Civil War? Will Sara’s heart give out? Will they return to their home in Portland?
What follows is an absolutely wonderful love story, rich in detail, with a couple of twists, and a little mystery thrown in. I loved Sara and Jamie; they were well developed characters and I found myself laughing at some of their antics.
I don’t normally read Civil War, historical, or time travel novels. I’ve been building my e-reader library and the author was offering The Bride Price for free. A great opportunity to try a different genre - and I’m so glad I did! I found it to be an easy read and I hated to put it down.
- Torn Between Two Brothers
on May 15, 2011
I found Torn Between Two Brothers to be an incredibly hot, sensual, and sexy story!! It is a quick, easy read and you will want to re-read some scenes several times! This tastefully written, multiple partner story, flowed seamlessly. Contemporary erotic romance readers will love this book.
- His Wicked Revenge (Short Story)
on June 08, 2011
The hero (Captain Anthony Barnet) was wronged by the heroine’s (Marissa Paget) family and sent away – beaten, penniless, and in shame. For thirteen years, Anthony has planned his revenge upon Marissa and her family. Only when he returns, as a very wealthy man, to extract this revenge, he finds that things are not always as they seem. When he finally listens to Marissa, he learns of the events from her perspective and what she has had to do in order to survive. They come to realize that the love and passion they had for each other all those years ago is still alive. Can this rekindled love continue to grow once Anthony is aware of Marissa’s secret? His Wicked Revenge is a lovely short story that was an enjoyable read. Recommended for all those who enjoy Regency Romance.
- Cover Story
on Oct. 20, 2011
You know those book covers with the really hot looking guys and the beautiful women? Have you ever fantasized about being that woman? Well, Cate Roberts gets to live out that fantasy when her younger sister Zoe talks her into posing for the cover of her new book – Four Seasons - as Cassandra, the heroine. Bo Gaddis, the current romance novel cover heartthrob is going to be posing as Lucas, the hero of the story.
Cover Story is a tastefully written and incredibly hot story that has you turning the pages to find out where the fantasy takes Cate. It is very sensual and I thoroughly enjoyed it. You’ll find yourself wanting to read it again – preferably with a partner nearby! Fans of contemporary erotic romance are going to love this one.
- Red Winter
on Oct. 24, 2011
This is a well written short story that takes place in a small old west town in 1890. The author’s descriptive words allow you to easily visualize the town and the people that populate it. You are going to like Sheriff Early Hardiman; you just know he’s seen it all, yet he’s faced with another challenge that could very well be his last. Something evil has come to LonePine and is leaving bloody, mutilated bodies in its wake. As the tension escalates the sheriff worries about how he can defeat this evil and save the townspeople. I enjoyed Red Winter; it’s a quick read that leads you to an unexpected ending. I’d recommend!
- The Accidental Vampire
on Oct. 26, 2011
The Accidental Vampire is the story of Marci Marie Montgomery, a newly turned vampire and one with a boatload of attitude. The author’s wicked sense of humor shines through in this fun and funny story. My only ‘complaint’ – it was too short! I’m hoping that the unexpected ending means we might see more of Marci. You’ll have a good time reading this one.
