  • Alien's Bride Book One on July 20, 2014

    OMG... I devoured this entire series like a slice of raspberry cheese cake in a dessert desert. (It was awesome BTW). It was a really original read. Super hot, entertaining, and science fiction all rolled into one... not to mention actual good writing skills. What could be better.
  • Eliza and the Raptor on Aug. 19, 2014

    I've read so many steamy science fiction and romance novels that its difficult to find any that really keep me interested... but I couldn't stop reading Eliza and the Raptor. The plot is really unique, full of action and sexual tension. Eliza is a strong female lead but still but not annoying and overly masculine. Kraken was surprisingly easy to relate to as a character and love interest for the main character despite being very 'un-humanoid'. If you are feeling on the fence about buying this book (like I was), you should just go for it because its fantastic.
  • Bryony And Roses on June 22, 2015

    I loved this story! I'm a huge fan of Beauty and the Beast retellings, and I always read them when I find them. I also love gardening so... win-win. This one has such an enthralling story that I read it all the way through in practically one sitting. The pace of character, and plot developement was natural(Neither hurried nor too slow), especially because the characters seemed so human and "normal" with flaws as well as shining qualities (unlike many other fantacy stories). I felt like the theme of 'accepting yourself and others as they are' was really well developed here, which made it an over all "feel good" type of book. No typos is also a plus.
  • The Lady's Fate (The Reluctant Grooms Series Volume III) on March 31, 2021

    A very enjoyable read! Anne Gallagher's writing style is a breath of fresh air in the very polluted and over done regency romance genre. "The Lady's Fate" is a heart warming and clever romance story, with very well crafted and believable characters. The author gave every part of the narrative equal care and development without becoming overly verbose or pretentious. It's such a lovely find for a weekend read. Don't bother with the free sample, just click buy. You won't regret it.
