Despite having one of the most uninspired titles I've seen lately (that immediately made me think of Snoopy, sitting on top of his doghouse with his typewriter) this Anne Stuart Harlequin kept me entertained all the way through.

It read like a typical AS kitchen sink category romance - so much going on it was hard to keep track of the tropes: a hurricane, a windswept cliff with a big stone house, a matronly housekeeper so sweet and thoughtful she could only be purely evil, the requisite slow-in-t...more

I have to warn future readers of what myself wish I had known before I bought this book: it belongs more to the PNR shelf of any raders' collection rather than the romantic suspense it claims to be. And let me warn you that PNR elements in this one are waaaay too prominent and also out of ordinary (at least what you would deem ordinary) than your regular suspense book usually features.

Suffice it to say that the hero's identity became the butt joke of my husband's teasing during our holidays and...more

Although the writing is excellent, as with most of Anne's Stuart's books, I ended up skimming the second half. The story was interesting, with lots going on. Unfortunately, I disliked the heroine. Sexual tension is important in category romance, but it annoys me when that tension is achieved by the heroine behaving in a manner no sane person would behave.

The heroine is feisty. She knows she is feisty and she's proud of it. When she crashes her car outside the reclusive hero's home and needs to s...more

This weekend I read another one of Anne Stuarts old categories and I really enjoyed it.

A dark and Stormy Night has a sort of a gothic feel. The hero O'Neal lives alone with his housekeeper and her son in a big house by the cliffs, dark and brooding he hides secrets about his family and has no friends.

Katie Flynn, the heroine, is lost in a storm and almost dies in an accident after she sees a ghost. She is rescued by O'Neal and brought to his house to rest and wait for the weather to clear agai...more

While a hurricane is approaching the Maine coast, Katie Flynn is looking for shelter. Suddenly she sees a girl in white standing on the road and swerves to avoid her, almost going over the edge of a cliff. Luckily she is saved by a broody recluse named O'Neal who takes her back to his house to wait out the storm.

Lots of paranormal elements in this romance...ghosts, shape-shifters, murderers. My rating: 3 Stars.

No stars. None. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

SAVE YOURSELF and do not read this book. It is crazy fruitloops nutty insane.

I just picked this up at the library book sale because it was $0.50, and because I did like Cinderman (More than Men #4).

This was a thriller/myth/ghost story that just made no sense.

If I write any more, I'll just start to sound insulting, so I'll stop. Just trust me, it's an unenjoyable ...er ... um ... trip.

I love selkies, so just for that alone I adored this book. I've had it in my TBR pile for a while, but once I found out it had selkies, it went right to the top.

The "I love you"s came a bit quickly, especially considering this guy's been a hermit for fifteen years. (Or if not quite a hermit, then certainly close to it.) But even with that, I still liked the book.

No professional romance author can hit the same buttons that fanfic authors can like Anne Stuart. This is absolutely no exception.

Whether this is good or bad is left up as an exercise to the reader. Also, if you do like crackfic, you already know how hard it is to find het, so you may as well read an Anne Stuart novel.

Someone commented this book by Stuart is probably the beginning of the shapeshifter books we have now there are plenty of nice ghosts and some murderous types and it`s just my type of book(except,I don`t like shifters but it`s light on that )a 5* read
