Harper Fox writes beautifully and vividly, and this story is no different. The romantic journey of the characters is superimposed on an amazing setting - Dove Island, complete with ancient saints and relics. Highly recommended!
I read this story as part of the short story collection "In Sunshine or in Shadow", and i loved it!
I'm always in awe with Josh's short stories, the way they are so emotionally intense and fulfilling, and also have a great plot to match, and In Plain Sight does just that and so well.
What got to me about Nash and Glen's story is how real it is, how one week can change your whole life, can teach you so much about yourself, can give you a second chance.
I highly recommend it!
Cards on the Table is a really good mystery with a very romantic story on the side.
Tim's research for his new book brings to light the dubious circumstances of a starlet's death and with it the people who'd rather keep things hushed. As the danger escalates, there is only one person Tim can rely on (reluctantly) - his ex-lover Jack, who's very willing to be there for him.
This story is one of my favorites. I highly recommend it!
I really like the fantastical elements in The Darkling Thrush - the book perusing, the mysteriously swirling atmosphere, the legends, the journey. It would make such a good movie. Colin is a good guy, if a bit naive, but it's Septimus that has me intrigued. And the (briefly appearing) fae folk. I do hope there will be a sequel to this story! In the meantime, i also recommend the audiobook, it kept me spellbound :-)
A stormy beginning for Austin in more ways than one, an old wine cellar and a storm, and the enigmatic Jeff, all make for a romantic read. I also liked Austin's conversations with his little brother (who is a sweetie though he'd huff at that, i think...), they were fun.
This book has a bit of a different style - good different, and it really reads a bit like manga. It's also a bit like a suspense movie. And that's pretty cool. I'd definitely read more like it (from Josh).
Beautiful. Just ... beautiful. A Midwinter Prince, struck a cord with me, not surprisingly because Harper's stories usually tend to do that to me. In this particular story, it was the coming out part, the way someone can be so entrapped by circumstances, yet fear the unknown should they decide to try and escape those circumstances. And that happiness doesn't come easy but a big part of it is choosing your own path and staying true to yourself, learn who to trust, know that you can choose your family.
It's such a romantic story. I can't wait to read The Lost Prince and be part of Laurie and Sasha's lives again.
Kick Start, the fifth book in the Dangerous Ground series, brings some (all being relative) respite to Will and Taylor's lives, from both work-related and personal suspense and (mis)adventures, and delves deeper into the relationship between these beloved characters.
Will and Taylor are having a difficult time getting their freelance gig off the ground which causes some friction, however, circumstances allow them to take a short vacation and visit Will's family. The suspense is there on the background and the stage is set for their next adventure (yay!), we get to meet Will's family, people from Will's past, and some unpleasant characters bent on revenge. And there's someone on their tail...
For me this was the perfect continuation to this series. I especially love Taylor in this one - so sweet and tough and vulnerable and wild and reckless, i simply adore him, and i loved spending more time with these guys, in a slightly more relaxed manner, having them settle into their relationship. The story makes for a lovely holiday read too, and i love the humor as always. Can't wait for their next adventure!
This short story (sequel to "Perfect Day") packs so much emotion, masterfully balanced with tender moments and the occasional bit of humor. What i loved best is how Wyatt's turmoil is soothed and kept in perspective by Graham's love and steadfastness, and, in the very last scene, how past, present, and future are expressed in simple, loving gestures.
