"Beautifully wrought intertwining tale of three couples across the ages"
Posted October 4, 2017

Posted August 29, 2017

DEVIL'S CUT is book 3 in the gloriously maladjusted The Bourbon Kings trilogy by J.R. Ward. This is a fun and trashy Twinky sort of book, with no redeeming nutritive value, but plenty of enjoyment to Read more...

"Magic and love make for a wild ride in this exceptionally captivating PNR world"
