Cooper's Charm
by Lori Foster
"A charming lake resort is the setting for a new series by Lori Foster"
Posted August 16, 2018

Lori Foster writes about characters that become real right before your eyes. In her writing, Foster gives you a pathway toward getting invested in their story and there's no better example of that than in COOPER'S CHARM, the first book in Read more...


Good Time Cowboy
by Maisey Yates
"Family relationships have never been more complicated."
Posted August 12, 2018

People often see themselves quite different than those around them, falling short of their ideal self-image. Such is the case of both Wyatt Dodge and Lindy Parker. Wyatt judges himself on past deeds -- decidedly mistakes of his teenage youth and strange family dynamics. Fathers can be demanding, but Wyatt Read more...


Unbridled
by Diana Palmer
"A great addition to the Long, Tall Texans series"
Posted August 10, 2018

Diana Palmer likes to pair up strong macho guys with somewhat less obvious insecure girls, so it is no surprise when you crack open UNBRIDLED and meet Sunny and John Ruiz in a somewhat awkward position. You realize almost immediately that you've just been introduced to the main characters Read more...


Claim Me, Cowboy
by Maisey Yates
"Absolutely pure entertainment."
Posted August 10, 2018

You know that somewhat famous movie line -- "you had me at hello?" In CLAIM ME, COWBOY, I was hooked as Danielle thought to herself -- "what kind of idiot puts an ad in a paper looking for a temporary wife." Joshua was advertising for someone unsuitable -- and as Danielle so deftly Read more...

The Bride Next Door
by Hope Ramsay
"The game is on - let the fun begin."
Posted July 7, 2018

Funny how people label other people or consign them to a particular group and not necessarily as a compliment. In fact most often a definite slight. I was entertained by the labels given to the men/boys by the lovely ladies in this story. THE BRIDE NEXT DOOR challenges stereotypes Read more...

Cowboy's Redemption
by B.J. Daniels
"This religious cult has a lot of skeletons to hide."
Posted May 4, 2018

Every once in a while a story pops up in the news about the existence of yet another fringe radical group disguised as a religious order. Many of these are rarely seen for what they truly are -- a cult. I can't think of any good examples of a cult Read more...

An avid reader for all my life and reading is one of my passions. Iíve been an independent reviewer for several years now and have covered just about every genre from a vast number of publishers and authors. Another perk of reviewing is getting a first glimpse of new and upcoming works from talented authors. As a reviewer I have had the fortune to meet new authors and become reacquainted with some tried and true ones. One of the most rewarding aspects of reviewing is having your work acknowledged by authors and/or publishers. The inclusion of one of my reviews on a book jacket or on an authorís website is a supreme compliment and always appreciated. With the advent and broad adoption of the e-reader the scope of available works to be reviewed has increased exponentially making the job of the reviewer ever more challenging as the selection of works becomes vast beyond belief. My goal is simple Ė to deliver a fair and honest review. I take this very seriously as I respect my readers and they can depend on my appraisal of fiction as well as various crafts and cooking. My main focus is fiction but occasionally something from another genre catches my eye. Reviews
