Highlander Most Wanted by Maya Banks

3 March 2013 Nikki R 0

It’s always tough writing a review for a book I don’t enjoy. I don’t want to disrespect the author and their work, and I don’t want to completely ruin the experience for someone willing to give the book a try. But I have to be honest. So I’ll just get […]

ALyle-The Merchant of Dreams

The Merchent of Dreams by Anne Lyle

28 February 2013 Courtney 0

Even though I missed the first novel in Anne Lyle’s Night’s Masque trilogy, The Alchemist of Souls, I still thoroughly enjoyed the second novel, The Merchant of Dreams.  I do believe it is necessary to read this series in order to to understand the various nuances of The Merchant of Dreams, but […]

IMartyn-Mistress to the Crown

Mistress to the Crown by Isolde Martyn

24 February 2013 Nikki R 1

Oh to be the mistress of a king!  Or maybe that’s just me and my craziness   I think of all the amazing experiences one would have, all the lavish surroundings, gifts, clothes, and none of the responsibility of being the queen and producing an heir.  I mean really?  How cool?  And […]

KCallihan-Ember

Ember by Kristen Callihan

28 September 2012 Casey 4

An e-book only prequel to Firelight by Kristen Callihan, I wasn’t sure what to expect with Ember, either a meaningless background story or a novella that would convince me to read Firelight. It turns out, Ember was a mix of both – a background story that completely convinced me to […]

Starlight by Carrie Lofty

You remember the story of Cinderella right?  A girl who is a lowly, miserable servant, who meets a prince, they fall madly in love and it’s all happily ever after?  Starlight by Carrie Lofty is along the same lines.  It’s a rags to riches romance..say that three times fast. An esteemed […]

Queen Victoria: Demon Hunter by AE Moorat

2 May 2012 Trish 1

I couldn’t finish Queen Victoria: Demon Hunter. Actually I barely got into the story, but by the third fight scene I realized that I did not possess the constitution to finish this book. There were many staff at Kensington Palace, fulfilling many roles; a man who was employed to catch […]

I had the pleasure of finding Lydia Dare’s Regency Vampire Trilogy series last year.   It had three elements that I love: historical romance, werewolves and vampires.  I fell in love and bought every book of this series and Dare’s the Westford Wolves series.  I just now got back into this […]

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

14 February 2012 Jackie 5

When it comes to historical fiction, I always recommend the same novel – Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. The seventh novel, An Echo in the Bone, came out in 2009, and while I have a copy of it (actually two copies), I still haven’t had a chance to open it.  Don’t […]

That Thing at the Zoo by James R. Tuck

27 December 2011 Nikki R 5

After the string of not so great books I’ve had, I was afraid That Thing at the Zoo by James Tuck would be another to add to my give away pile.  I’m happy to announce, I was wrong about the book and it will be joining my expanding library. Right […]
