This is my second book that I read from this writer and I really loved it. This writer has a very unique style of writing (I think so). I couldn't stop reading.

I enjoyed this story very much. I love Kristen Ashley's her Ghosts series!

Lacybourne manor is the third book in the Ghost and Reincarnation series but each book can be read as a standalone. I’m a big, big fan of Kristen Ashley and I really love this series. In this book you don’t only get a great alpha man and a curvy and softhearted woman but also a witch and a ghost. What more can you wish for?
Like in many books of Kristen Ashley there are some great side characters in the story. They make you smile, they make you sad. They make you feel many thing throughout the story. I love that very much.

I must confess that the only reason that I read this book was because I really love this author's writing. And althought I didn't know what to expect of this book, I liked it.
I really liked the way how she writes about Vivica.
The only thing that I wish for, is that I could read more about Nicholas/Vivica thoughts. But I think that my wish will come true in the second book (Killer queen).

My friend, Karin, really loved this book and couldn't stop talking about it, so of course I was very curieus about this book. And just like my friend, Karin, I really loved it!! It was a while since I read this sort of book. But I loved every moment of it.
Brishen, a Kai prince most marry a Gauri noblewomen to seal a treat between both races. Ildiko always knew that it was her fate to marry for politics. Luckily for both, there's an instant understanding between them. Althought they look different like night and day, both want this marriage to work. So they decided to be honest with each other. And that's what made me love this book so very much. The relationship between them was so wonderful and lovely. The writer really takes her times to let the relationship grow between Brishen and Ildiko. What is more wonderful then two lonely people finding love and understanding with each other?
I can't wait to read the next book!
Heaven and Hell

I love Kristen Ashley her books. Every time I have a dip or I don’t know what to read next I always read a book from Kristen Ashley. Because she has never disappointed me and that was the same with this book. An alpha man, a woman who loves him but who isn’t afraid to tell when he’s wrong. A bunch of friends and a lovely family. I love it and I hope that she will soon write Luci and Hap their story ! I can’t wait to read it.
The Hooker and the Hermit
on March 13, 2015
The hooker and the hermit is the first book that is writing by the writers L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid together. And I can tell you it calls for more books from this duo. I was already a big fan from L.H. Cosway but this was the first time I have read something from Penny Reid but it will not be the last time!!
Annie Catrel (= the hermit) is a woman whose life consists of her job at Davidson & Croft Media as a social media expert and her secret hobby as a celebrity blogger aka ‘The Socialmedialite’. Annie lives her life behind the computer, unlike her real life that is lonely but safe, her virtual life is filled with friends (although she has never spoken or seen one of them in real life!) and excitement. But that’s the way Annie likes it.
But that’s about to change. One day at work she meets the hot Irish rugby player Ronan Fitzpatrick (= the hooker) for the second time (only he doesn’t know that) . Ronan Fitzpatrick has had a bad time, first he discover his fiancée having sex with one of his teammates, then he lost his temper and fought with this teammate during a game. So now he’s suspended from the team! His plan is now to come to Manhattan (away from the scandal in Ireland) and live a quiet life while working on his condition untill he gets back on the team. But that’s hard with the paparazzi lurking around and now someone called ‘The socialmedialite’ is blogging about him!! Ronan is so angry about this that he decides to send this blogger an angry email.
But his management think that it’s about time for Ronan to reshape his public image, so they send him to Davidson & Croft to do that. This is where he meets Annie for the first time (or so he thinks!). He feels an instant attraction to her. He likes it that she’s shy and a little different than other women he knows. So when her boss suggests that Annie will work with him he couldn’t be happier. That’s the opposite about how Annie feels about this news. But her boss leaves her no other choice.
So here starts the work relationship between the two of them. A relationship that Ronan hopes will change in a love relationship but this could be hard. Because not only is Annie shy and a little bit antisocial, she also has had a difficult childhood. Something that made her decide to stay far away from love. And what Ronan also doesn’t know is that the person he sends emails to, the person he knows as ‘The sociamedialite’ is Annie! So you see there is a lot going on in this story and then you also have Roman’s mother and his ex-fiancée who aren’t happy with this relationship!!
Like I said before, I didn’t know what to expect from this book, since it was the first time that these writers wrote a book together but I can tell you now that I just fell in love with this book! I love the humor in this book, the emails, the twitters (or twatters like Ronan likes to say). I really hope that L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid will write another book together. Fingers crossed!
