Smashwords book reviews by Linda Winey

  • Run Into The Wind: A Historical Romance on Sep. 02, 2010

    This was captivating reading. I couldn't put the story down until I came to the end! I could almost see, smell and feel all of Sabrina's experiences. Very well written. Loosing forward to the sequel, "Chase the Moon"!-Diamellin
  • The Path of Dreams on June 07, 2011

    This was an enjoyable read not only of romance, but also a mix of Japanese language, culture, and customs. There was a mistake regarding a 1966 Mustang car howeever. Title papers were not yet available in 1966.
  • Gringa - Taming the Beast on Oct. 23, 2012

    I am anxious to read the next installment. These first two are like a salve, just drawing you in.
  • The Reed Bed on Nov. 02, 2012
    (no rating)
    This is hot, hot, hot! Am eager to read more about Tom and how this encounter changes his and the girl's lives.
  • The Reed Bed on Nov. 02, 2012

    I love it so far. Am eager to read more and find out hos this encounter changes them both.
  • Arousing Caitlyn on Nov. 05, 2012

    This was a sexy, loving story and an easy peaceful read. Wish there was more.
  • The Wrong House on Nov. 05, 2012

    The dialogue in this story is kind of juvenile. There is a lot going on and the transitions are jumpy, not blending as smoothly as you would expect. The story line itself is interesting and imaginative. I think it would appeal to a younger age group but not necessarily as a children's story. Therefore, this should be reclassified as a teen/young adult read.
  • Texas Rose on March 17, 2013

    This is an easy, fun read. Thank you so much!
  • Texas Rose on March 17, 2013

    This is a great sequel. I'm loving the story of Jesse and Lucky. I am anxious to read the next sequel!
  • When I Wake Up on April 11, 2013

    This part of the seris is just as intriguing as the first two. Although the author was hesitat about writing this, I feel she made a good decision when she went through with it. This part also leaves some room for additional sequels, such as does Jesse leave the secret CIA, is the new baby a girl or boy. (hint, hint) I'd love to see another sequel in a part 4.
  • Rose Of Skibbereen on April 17, 2013

    This is written so well that I feel as though I am living the story as well. Life has been very hard on our poor Mary, and I hope to read more about her in the future as things seem to be making a turn for the better for her.
  • A Love Through Time on April 21, 2013

  • A Matter of Time on April 22, 2013

    This is third in the series of Maggier and Alex and all the people they encountered in their time travel, plus the next generation. It is definitely a must read! I loved the story line. I am a sucker for midieval stories and Scottish stories as well, so this was right up my alley!

  • The Only Good Roman on Nov. 23, 2013

    I didn't know what to expect when I started reading this book as Roman history is not usually my forte. However, this book captivated me from start to finish. I eagerly anticipate book 2 of this series!
  • Shades of Honor (Grayson Brothers) on Dec. 06, 2013

    This is a captivating, compelling story with lots of emotion. The characters are very well developed, I couldn't stop reading until I came to "the end". I look forward to the sequels!.

  • Ladd Springs on Jan. 03, 2014

    This is a well written story about mountain people, the Ladd's in particular, and the family turmoil over who will inherit the beautiful land once Uncle Ernie kicks the bucket.

    I really liked reading this story. When will Books 2 and 3 be on Smashwords?
  • The Storekeeper on Jan. 15, 2015

    I wish this book was longer. I enjoyed the story line and the characters were believeable.
  • The Accidental FiancĂ©e on Jan. 16, 2015

    This is a well written short srtory. I am looking forward to the next one.
  • Colloquial The Craigslist Cowboy on Jan. 18, 2015

    This book reads as a personal ad with many, many responses. I did not like the style, but the feelings conveyed were sincere, well thought out and well written. I would have liked it better if there was interaction between cowboy and his hopeful responders. I give it a high rating for grammar and spelling.
  • What's the Sign for Love? on Jan. 18, 2015

    This was a very enjoyable , sweet read. The characters were introduced and developed well. The storyline was believable annd written in such a way to capture and keep your attention. Grammar was right on. I found only one minor typo mistake, but I can't even remember where it was! The ending is not abrupt, but leaves your imagination in "overdrive." I loved it!
  • Pink Lace and Stolen Hearts (Friends to Lovers) on Jan. 19, 2015

    This was my first m/m erotic story, and boy did it open my eyes to a lot of formerly unanswered questions about self-acknowledging gayness, coming out and loving. I thought I would be grossed out, but was pleasantly surprised to find it quite endearing. The fears, concerns and feelings between two men was described quite well. I recommend this story to m/m romance virgins such as myself as well as anyone else of appropriate age due to the graphic sex/love scene at the end.
  • West For Love (A Mail Order Romance Novel) (1) (Anna & Thomas) on Jan. 20, 2015

    I enjoyed this book, was able to read it in one evening (despite numerous interuptions by my family and dog!) and look forward to the next book in the series.
  • Undressed on Jan. 22, 2015

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it and its predeceaser, "Unlaced". I now look forward to book 3 in this series, "Unveiled"
  • Unveiled on Jan. 26, 2015

    This is book 3 in a series, Although it could be read alone, the characters take on more meaning if one reads its two predeceasers first: "Unlaced" and Undressed". I truly enjoyed all three books, but especially this one due to the main character, Miss Jane Rosemoor, and the author's ability to expand her personality without loosing the reader's interest. The plot is well orchestrated, well written and should be well received by all who read this book. Cheers to you, Kristina Cook!
  • Unlaced on Jan. 26, 2015

    All I can say is "Wow!" I couldn't put this book down until I had read the whole thing. The author has quite a flair for transforming words into visions. I almost felt like a voyeur or stalker watching each character's movements and listening to their thoughts. If you like regency stories, I believe you will love this one, too. I have never wanted to reread something but this book may be my first, not to gain any missed message, etc., but "just because". :-)
  • Her Wicked Ways on Feb. 06, 2015

    I enjoyed this book and all its characters.

    Wow. This was a great short read with quite a surprise ending! Loved it!
  • Myriah Fire on March 21, 2015

  • The Piano Tutor - A Spicy Regency Short Story on March 22, 2015

    Story sucked me right in. I agree with Carol's review of March 16, 2012, that it was like "eating a chocolate". Now I'm looking for the second piece!
  • Simon Pure on March 22, 2015

    Unfortunately, the full description of this story does not quite fit the actual story. However, it is interesting, well characterized and well written. I hope there's more to come!

Angel is trying to rebuild her life after a terrible physically abusive relationship. Although she wasn't looking for another relationship with a man, yet, how could she resist the handsome gentleman named Mason Myles, who is also a doctor? Their story and her fears are very well written. It has a cliff hanger ending, and I am very eager to read the sequel/
  • Saving Angel on April 23, 2015

    Angel and Mason, the main characters, continue to get to know each other while living through some serious ups and downs for themselves as well as their friends and families. This is a continuation from "New Beginning", which you should also read. It is free here on Smashwords. It also has a suspenseful ending. I am looking forward to the next book in this trilogy, "Destined to Love".

    The characters in this and the story line are very good. However, work needs to be done with the currently poor grammar. For this reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5.
