Smashwords book reviews by Tara Manderino

  • A Confederate Yankee In Miss Annabelle's Court on Nov. 04, 2010

    A Confederate Yankee in Annabelle's Court is truly a sweet romance. The characters are charming, and their method of travel is unique. Seth's speech brings the old south to life, and shows in sharp contrast to Annabelle's cut and dried modern speech. A very pleasant story to bring a smile and sigh to your lips.
  • Art of Deception (Contemporary Romance) on May 19, 2011

    A fast paced rollicking read that takes you through the art galleries to the waterways and ranches of Texas. Strong and independent, Max only wants to be free to paint, then in walks chauvinistic Jon Donnell --- the absolute antithesis of everything she holds dear. Jon Donnell, a designer at the top of his field, wants to use Max’s work. Only, he’s convinced Max is a male! Definitely a recommended read.
  • A Matter of Taste on Oct. 02, 2011

    Wonderful emotion in this short story. The reader can’t help but be drawn to Hannah’s plight and her solution. Ms. DeVaney does a masterful job in A Matter of Taste in getting the reader to understand Hannah. I look forward to reading more of Ms. DeVaney’s work.
  • Bad Girl! on Nov. 13, 2011

    Working to overcome her own problems, Dominatrix Kris Delaney is content to provide her clients with their fantasy. When her clients start dying one by one, she becomes the prime suspect in their murders. In direct opposition to his partner, Detective Nick Price, a one time client, maintains she is innocent. Bad Girl! with its kinky elements and wounded characters who fill a need in the other make for an engrossing read, especially if you like to figure out whodunnit! This one will keep you guessing.
