Smashwords book reviews by Mary Elizabeth Fricke

  • Yukon Tenderfoot on Sep. 22, 2013

    What an adventurous read! Just the image of four hoity-toity congressmen being the only survivors of an airplane crash in the middle of the Yukon Wilderness is hysterical enough…and not necessarily on humorous venues. But, these guys experience it all….and in ways you cannot imagine until you read and discover, with them, yourself. There are moments of pure ignorance when you just want to roll your eyes; moments that make you want to applaud and moments that will reduce you to tears. Yukon Tenderfoot is not without its mystery or its own brand of intrigue. From the crash on you cannot help but wonder 'will they survive?' Will they appreciate what they learn along the way? Fred Hernandez captures the Yukon and its inhabitants with remarkable accuracy and his characters with memorable spirit.

    What a riveting action-packed story! One has to wonder how Ms. Richards discovered such knowledge about the private lives of motorcycle club members with all the other erotic details added in! Ms. Richards has a knack for arranging the primal nuances of sex into a riveting story that ends with quite a shock but will satisfy the readers. I wasn’t able to put this book down until I’d read to the very end. I understand there is more in this MC series and cannot wait to read them.
