  • Promises (Book One of The Syrenka Series) on June 11, 2012

    First off the covers for this trilogy are really beautifully done. I happened to win the first two installments of this trilogy in a competition on Gravetells (an awesome website that reviews paranormal genre books - check it out) The book is about Mermaids and Selkies (seals/shapeshifter), this is not usually a genre I go for but after recently reading the Warriors of Poseiden series by Alyssa Day I was already in a watering/sea mood. So far I have to say the story is very well written, the plot is interesting, entertaining and flows nicely throughout. The story had captured me within the first few chapters and I couldnt seem to put it down. Although it ended on a cliffhanger the story as a whole was excellent and I am looking forward to continuing the story in the next installment. When I read I can see the pictures in my head and if the book is good it will follow through till the end like a movie, This book did this I saw what Eviana and Kain and the rest of the characters looked like and their attitudes and reactions to everything Okay so characters are very well written I already see Eviana as a typical teenager that is on the cusp of being a woman, she so far has endured a number of hardships but has come out as a strong young woman. Im not a fan of the love triangle but the author has taken this to an interesting level where I can not decide who I believe is Eviana's "Soul Mate" and it will be interesting to see who she does end up with in the end, as I am a huge fan of Kain (Who isnt - Hes rich, good looking and an all around good guy) but Brendan has the whole friends plus love thing going for him. All up a very good book I would recommend to all fans of young adult readers and I am really looking forward to finishing this trilogy.
  • The Druid Series 1: Reapers on July 12, 2012

    Loved it!!! This was a great begining to a really interesting series. This is action packed with great characters and full of twists and turns Keep reading this series it gets even better as you go along
  • Betrayal (Book Two of The Syrenka Series) on Nov. 05, 2012

    Excellent!! Well written and an interesting storyline, fully action packed and refreshing. This series is really worth your time if your into young adult you will not be dissapointed, who would have thought mermaids would jump in and take a piece of the paranormal/fantasy action genre. Im really looking forward to the last installment and Im giving my vote to Kain I hope Eviana sorts her feelings out gets her act together and get with Kain.
  • Lingerie Wars on Oct. 10, 2013

    What an awesome story!! Bring on the next round!!!!! Janet Elizabeth Hendersen's sense of humor is FABULOUS!!!!! I need to find more of her writings. I'm completely intrigued in Scottish fare usually the whole burly men in highland kilts is enough to get the blood flowing and I love reading the accents, but having a well written story with humor and banter and you have won me over forever. This story set fire to contemporary romance stories out there at the moment I thoroughly enjoyed this, the endless supply of New Adult contemporary romance is getting beyond my annoyance and I am so glad to have found one that has a more mature less teenage/college level to it. I am completely new to this author and I am definitely putting her in my author's to follow list I was that captivated by this story. Such humor BRILLIANT!!! I love love loved the characters Lake is and excellent down to earth, HOT ex military guy that has hello big boy written all over him in big black unremovable texta that you want a piece and and extra helping to take home. He is smart and witty and his level of respect towards Kristy and the rest of the women in Invertary is swoon worthy, definitely going on the book boyfriend list. I loved that he got Kristy to feel good about all herself and not to be scared of who she is. Kristy is a beautifully written character, her sassy remarks and ability to overcome a huge trial in her life bring to life an utterly wonderful character, that would require brilliance to replicate. What a couple they never gave up the hilarious banter and the sexual tension was so thick a knife couldn't have sliced through it was completely delicious. Every character involved had a purpose and one that was worthy of the story. All the characters were intriguing in their own right and there are a few I would love to read more of, especially Caroline I feel there is more to her we have not seen. Betty is just HILARIOUS!!! I want to shrink her and have her in my pocket for laughter emergencies. Hobbit indeed she would probably fit. She needs her own Book or definitely needs to star constantly in the series, her headstone is marvellous such genius!!!! Thankfully I have this on my kindle because I highlighted more than half the book about 75% would have been Betty scenes. I loved how this wasn't a sappy novel with all the I love you's coming out of nowhere. The romance felt believable a I loved the slow courtship, they did get to know each other and enjoy each other first before the jumping into bed part. I'm a huge fan of the sex scene in books but I was really glad there wasn't one in this story I think it would have cheapened the experience the implication was enough. This was such a page turner I felt totally involved in the story. I couldn't put it down and I really didn't want it to end. However a really satisfying ending. This needs to be a movie!!! I loved the side story of Lakes sister Rainne (Rainbow) and Alistair and would love to see how their story turns out. All I can say is bring on the next one Im ready!!!!!
  • The Siren Series 1: Ember on Feb. 11, 2014

    WOW why did I wait so long to get back into this series!!!! I LOVE Marata Eros her descriptive prose and humorous wit, amazing storyline and sexy and original characters are to be admired and bragged about. Constantine is back!!!! What I like about Constantine is the his intensity of his emotions and character. He doesn't know who or what he is exactly and he can only reactively follow his inbred instincts. I love finding out new blood species running in his veins. Con is the type of character you want to hate but cant help but feel for as well. He's so cocky and arrogant which only gets him into trouble. I loved Ember how she bites back and how they all underestimate her. I look forward to seeing if Con gets his way with her, and finding out more of the origins of her birth. Welcome to the series Brandon (Son of Aubree and Beau – from Druid Series) only two years old and already a fully grown male due to his Mer bloodline. He really is an interesting character and I hope he gets his story soon. Ruby is also a new addition you just want to help her up and give her a big hug, What a crap hand she was dealt. I definitely have to mention Brolach Oh My Freaking Gawd!!!!! He is Freaking Hot Literally!!!! I am going to need me some more of Brolach, I cannot wait for his story. I am seriously crushing on Brolach big time. All that Bad boy with good boy running in his veins seriously HOT!!!! OMG!!!! I loved all the different species Mer, Demon, Druid, Faction, Vampire, Reaper, Exotic, I cant wait for what comes next. I love how Marata brings you into her world and makes the story believable, these characters are real this is all happening under our noses. I love how refreshing it is not to know what is going to happen next so unpredictable, Marata really keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat. All up and incredibly epic addition to the Marata Eros world and a larger than life instalment to the Siren Series I cannot wait to see what happens next.
  • The Druid Series 3: Harvest on Feb. 11, 2014

    I really liked this and HELLO Back candy!!! This series is action packed and full of promise for more. It is a little confusing in some areas but I love the fast paced action and the characters are wonderful. Looking forward to next installment.
  • The Druid Series 2: Bled on Feb. 11, 2014

    Loved it This book has everything - Action, Suspense, and some naughtyness. This installment has a great plot we follow on from the first book Reapers, Rachel is still in trouble but also being looked after and the new introduction of Holly is a wonderful twist, but I wont tell you why. All up this series is an enjoyable read and so quick that it keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting more. Another HOTT!!! Cover
  • The Dara Nichols Series 1: A Hard Lesson on Feb. 11, 2014

    Dara Nichols is an educater that gets more than she bargains for in a number of senarios. The first story (A Hard Lesson) is about getting taught a few sexual lessons by her own students. I loved this story. It was told brilliantly. The characters are hot and the story is sexy as hell. The story is basically an erotic thrill, and is told beautifully. If you love this one read the seven others involving Dara and her conquests they are hotter than Hell, and will hook you beyond belief
