Sarah is one of the "poor" kids at the exclusive prep school she attends. Her father lost his money, and with it, any claim she had to social status in the environment where how much money your parents have determine how many friends you have and if the boys want to date you. She admires Dan, the heir to a lucrative technology enterprise from afar (with no hope of him ever noticing her that way), even though he's dating her best friend Jillian. Sarah is biding her time until she can graduate, enjoying her art class the most, out of a love for art and the fact that Dan is also in her class. She also spends her time trying to avoid the disturbing attentions of Frank, a mean-spirited classmate with an unhealthy attraction to her. In short, her life is rather mundane, until things change in a spectacular fashion, and events beyond her comprehension show her that her world is nothing like she believed.
I enjoyed reading The Heir. The writing is smooth and it kept my interest. Sarah is an appealing lead character. I appreciated how the story begins in a very mundane fashion, but with the continued narrative, the reader slowly becomes aware that things are far from what they seem. This links the reader's emotions very tangibly to Sarah's, as we experience things concurrently with her. As tragedy befalls Sarah, I felt so much sympathy for her, as well as unease at the strange developments in her situation and in the relationships she has with pivotal characters around her.
The science fiction angle is well done. However, I think seasoned science fiction readers might find her world-building thin. While I would have liked more complexity and description in the world-building in the later part of the book, the developing plot details perked my interest, and I appreciated the creativity on offer. I also liked the societal concepts she presents in the science fiction aspect of this novel.
While the romance is a strong part of this story, it did feel a bit subdued. The chemistry between Sarah and Dan could have been better developed and touched on earlier in the book, and their changing relationship toward the end of the book would have felt more authentic and believable.
The Heir is a good start to a promising series. Lynne Stringer has crafted a young adult science fiction romance that feels distinct, with a lead character that readers will root for and feel sympathy with in her journey.

I loved the magic and the supernatural entities in the book, and Nate when he's peeved is something to watch out for. This would make a great action movie, although I'd cringe on some parts. Nate is the man!!

Sensitive readers will find aspects of the storyline hard to read at times, but I am glad that Nate is there to deliver some hard justice to horrible villains in this book. This series is not to be missed if you're a fan of urban fantasy.

I think that's an advantage for readers who want something really quick, but I think I like a longer reading for my devotionals. Thus, I was a mite disappointed. I do have to say that the Gospel of John cannot fail to inspire believers with the majesty and power of the deity of Jesus, and his profound love for everyone. John called himself "the disciple whom Jesus loved." That man was so tapped into the love that Jesus has for us that the Romans couldn't even kill him when they tried boiling him in oil. That's a lesson for every believer to learn right there. So I was thrilled to get a copy of this devotional for free on Amazon Kindle. I have been specifically meditating on God's love for me (right believing leads to right living), and I already feel it has changed my life profoundly. John's gospel is required reading for believers who are on the same path for that reason stated above. I loved the prayers at the end of each devotion, and they definitely packed a punch for their short length.
So even though I didn't give this one a higher rating, I still feel it is a very worthwhile daily journal for less than a month of study.(less)

There is a daily writing, based on a scripture reference, with a nice prayer at the end. I found each day helpful to me, which I think is the mystery of the Holy Spirit, that each day can have something applicable, no matter what is going on in your life. I thought the prayers were well written, and short and sweet. It's good to have a nice little pre-written prayer if you're not confident in your prayers, even though prayer is just conversation with God, who loves you no matter what. I do have to say the one prayer about being a submissive wife didn't work for me (yeah, I'm not a big believer in that), but otherwise, they were all great.
I can't say anything more other than I recommend this one if you happened to pick it up free.

I think it was more of a family drama than a romance though. I found the enormity of the family situation faced by Brianna and Nathan to overshadow their romance in many ways. At the same time, I was really drawn into that situation after the book got started. I wonder what influenced Carole Mortimer when she wrote this book. It seems like it would make a good BBC drama, which isn't a bad thing. Some aspects of this book were surprisingly dark and sad for a Harlequin Presents, especially the reveal about Brianna's mother. It is a statement on how the sins of the prior generation can have a huge impact on the next ones, and that plays out in so many ways in this book.
I want to rate this one in two different ways. For a romance, I'd end up giving it three stars, because the romance is just not as well-developed, although there is certainly potential. I liked Brianna and Nathan quite a bit and I wish they had more page space to shine outside of the tangled family dynamics. As a serious drama story, I'd give it four stars. So I think 3.5 stars is a more than fair rating.

I am an admitted huge fan of Anna Campbell, so I ran to get it when she said it was free in her newsletter. What a pleasant surprise that I enjoyed all the stories more or less equally. One caveat, if you don't care for very short romance stories at all, give this one a miss.
The premise was quite pleasing. This collection of stories revolve around the concept of a ball held by a particular doyenne of the ton known for throwing a Christmas ball where a particular couple finds their true love match. You would think the stories would be samey with this idea. In fact, quite the contrary. Each story had a different feel. In fact, you could go down the list and suggest themes for historical romance and this short collection more or less covers the gamut.
I liked the fact that an older heroine finds a second chance at love in Shana Galen's story. The inclusion of a Scarlet Pimpernel-type hero who rescued her and her son from the bloodthirsty French revolution and the fact that that same man has been in love with her for many years made this a delightfully romantic story. I didn't think I would enjoy having a heroine with grown sons as the main character, but it didn't bother me at all. I liked it, in fact.
Anna Campbell's story was the most passionate. I am not much of a fan of forbidden lovers, but she makes the desperate, illicit passion work in this story. Plus the hero is delightfully Scottish. The heroine is of the Cinderella variety, so you have to be in the mood for a downtrodden heroine. However, the romantic in me loves how the hero makes her long-cherished wish come true at the end.
Vanessa Kelly has a nice guy hero who is sorely lacking in historical romance. Thanks to her for that. While I love bad boy, dangerous heroes, I also love sweet, kind heroes and I like the idea that the hero can be that really adorable guy that always has a kind word for a wallflower and is a really good friend. This story hit my 'aww' button.
Readers who like friends to lovers stories will enjoy Kate Noble's offering. Our hero realizes that he took his next door neighbor and boon companion for granted when he returns to find her a diamond of the first water who has no time for him, despite her tomboy past. I liked the turnabout is fair play aspect of this story. It also reminded me of movies like Sabrina, where the hero realizes that his heroine has been there waiting for him all the time when he is about to lose her.
All in all, a very enjoyable, and quick read that this reader enjoyed when she collapsed exhausted on her bed on Christmas evening. I am so grateful that this was a free Christmas present on Amazon. Thumbs up!(less)

Some are more directly focused on the story of the Christ child, and others delve into his majesty and identity as the savior of all humanity and his fulfillment of the ancient prophecies that foretold of God's promise to reunite and redeem humanity through his Son. The scriptures featured are both Old and New Testament and show the unbreakable link between Mosaic Scriptures, and the work of the Prophets (looking forward to the awaited Messiah) and the New Testament, which focuses on the arrival of Jesus the Messiah. It worked very well as a devotional during the very busy month of December. It serves a dual purpose of reminding believers why Christmas has crucial spiritual importance and also as a reminder of our hope in Jesus. It's fairly no frills, but it serves its purpose and the scripture was food to this reader's spirit.
30 Scripture Readings for Christmas was a gem of a free read on Amazon. I could see me reading it again next year. It's great for readers who want to follow the scriptures through the Christmas story in December, but it could work any month, honestly. After all, the promised and fulfilled hope of Christmas can live everyday in our hearts.(less)

Proper young lady, Celine Fairweather is summoned to stay with her pregnant sister, Penelope, Duchess of Blackthorne, keep her company, and help run her household through her final month of pregnancy. Shortly after her arrival, the dashing Lord Adair asks the ducal couple if his second cousin, the roguish George Rodrick Irvin, Viscount Elmer, who is apparently hiding from pirates can stay with them since he's going out of the country. Celine is nursing an affection for a very bad poet by the name of Philbert Woodbead, and the bored Viscount is eager to help her reconnect with him to keep his mind off his own situation of being Public Enemy Number One with a vicious group of pirates. With his checkered past and happy-go-lucky personality, Viscount Elmer brings life and chaos into Celine's ordered existence. He makes her realize the difference between a temporary affection and true love, but is Viscount Elmer here to stay or is this just a temporary diversion while he's in hiding from his enemies?
Seeking Philbert Woodbead has the slapstick humor tone of its predecessor, Penelope, but unfortunately, it lacks its charm and the cohesiveness. Celine doesn't have the presence and doesn't captivate (and bewilder) the reader as thoroughly as her sister Penelope. That was a shame, since I really loved Penelope, her personality and her antics. I perceive that the author wanted to flip the page with this book, and have a serious heroine with a silly hero, but George isn't as funny or as lively a main character as this book needed.
While there are some humorous moments, they didn't feel organic. The silly tone felt contrived, as if the author was trying a little too hard. The biggest issue was this book doesn't have the energy and spirit a story of this kind needs. When a story is played for laughs, it needs to own its absurdity, and I didn't feel that needed sense of abandon to silliness that makes Penelope such a delightful read.
Overall, Celine is likable, although a bit bland. I didn't connect with her as much as I liked, and I hardly felt any connection with George. For a hero who supposedly had his sense of joie de vivre, I didn't feel it. The pirate storyline could have been a bit more prominent and better integrated into the storyline, because a lot of the humorous potential within this plot was left undeveloped.
It was great to catch up with Penelope and her duke again, and their scenes were some of my favorite parts. Penelope is now a married woman who is heavily pregnant, and seeing her and the duke deal with some of the aspects of pregnancy and marriage was a lot of fun.
Unfortunately, I was disappointed with Seeking Philbert Woodbead after being so captivated with Penelope. This is a decent book, and if I hadn't loved the first Fairweather series book so much, I would have enjoyed it more than I did. It just doesn't hold up as well in comparison. I'm still looking forward to continuing this series, because I do enjoy Anya Wylde's writing and her desire to make the reader laugh with sweet, fun Regency romance.
Overall, it didn't catch my interest. I found my attention wandering and boredom setting in as I read it. I think it was probably a situation where the writing style didn't work for me. Wharton seems to have a sort of elaborate, flowery style, and I usually don't care for that kind of writing. I didn't feel the tension build that much, even after the pivotal events occur. I was looking for that moment, I'll call it the 'crunch moment', although that is probably not the best word, and when it occurs, I didn't feel anything. I am a reader who likes to be involved in the story, and I felt detached from this story. I really didn't care about the characters. It's hard to feel horror or fear when you don't care and aren't drawn into the story.
While the idea was good, the execution didn't work for me. I'm disappointed because I was definitely looking for a good vintage ghost story to get my October Scare Fest started, and this wasn't the one.
Edith Wharton is obviously touted as a well-respected author, and I won't even try to dispute that. I do have to say she had quite a vocabulary, which is always enviable. Unfortunately, I'd have to say that this ghost story didn't work for me. I read it late, late at night in bed on my Kindle with the lights off, and I didn't feel a single chill. Not good for a ghost story. I'll try her again though.

That's a good sign indeed.
I love interracial romance, so I try to keep an eye out for good books. However, I don't love interracial erotica, and that can be a double-edged sword, since you don't know how erotic a book will get until you read it. And I miss out on some good writing because I tend to avoid all of it (since I don't know what is and isn't out of my comfort zone).
I'm glad this came up free on Kindle, because I don't think I would have bought it, since it does have an erotic storyline. Despite the fact, it was a good read.
What I liked:
* I loved that Veronica is an independent woman with her own business, and she's very good at her job. * Also that Veronica is a geek. She did calculus problems in her head when Rossi's hotness started distracting her too much. How cool is that? The Doctor Who reference was awesome (although she spelled it Dr. Who). Also the Star Trek "Resistance is futile" quote raised the geek coolness bar a notch more. *I just loved the scene when Rossi nursed Veronica when she had the flu. I think that was crucial for such a short story focused around sexual attraction and assuaging that attraction for someone you work with. While I can't say I felt huge love between the characters, I could see there was a strong love bond developing. *I am a pretty big Harlequin Presents fan, and I perceive this as a Harlequin Presents-type homage, which was cool. It was great to have a black heroine and one who is not dependent on the hero for her livelihood, even though it does have a bit of the sexual harassment theme going on (which I kind of like in these books anyway).
What didn't work for me: *This is a grain of salt thing. I just don't care for erotica. It's not evil or wrong, but it just doesn't work for me on a romantic level. Yes, my hormones can be stimulated by reading hot stuff, I won't lie. However, I don't care for the rough language. If the author is going to use the big naughty words for body parts, I need to feel the love very strongly between the characters. In this case, I didn't. Not that the author isn't a good writer, but the scenarios and the short time period made that impossible. So hearing the naughty words associated with the sex scenes didn't work for me. *Also, some of the sexual scenarios felt more like a titilation factor than romance to me. I especially didn't care for (view spoiler)[ Veronica taking X-rated pictures of herself and putting them in Rossi's presentation booklet, especially one in particular involving a dildo. It felt 'icky' to me. But thank God, no anal sex! I think some readers might find it hot, but not for me. I do have to say that I almost choked in shock and laughter when Veronica's phone went off when she saw Rossi self-pleasuring himself and right at the explosive moment. Hilarious and deeply embarrassing at the same time. Well-written, I must say. (hide spoiler)] *The short length, which I allude to earlier didn't work for me. I didn't feel that the characters were going to stay together for ever when this ended. I can see them having a hot and heavy relationship and maybe falling in love, but that doesn't necessarily equal happy ever after to me. I am a happy ever after girl, not a happy for now. Just a resolution of them dating and going out in public and not just having sex wasn't fulfilling to me.
So Why The Four Stars?:
The writing is very good. It feels polished and the characters are very well-developed for a short, sex-oriented story. While I am just not into the moneyed, hot executive hero type (despite my love of Harlequin Presents) books, Rossi was actually a nice guy and he respected and admired Veronica for the whole person, and not just her physical assets. As I said above, I liked Veronica for the most part although (view spoiler)[ I wasn't down with how she objectified herself near the end to get Rossi's attention. (hide spoiler)] For the short length and the subject matter, this was a good story and it was very sexy. Not really my cup of tea, but well done all the same.
I would recommend this to readers who like the hot stuff and don't mind the language being naughty and a bit of a 'porny' scenario. Not tasteless in the least, so don't get that idea from my review.
It's worth the money if you like short erotic interracial stories built around the office love/sexual harassment scenario.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>(less)

Young baker's daughter, Robin forms a group that stands up to fight against the tyranny of an unjust king who is overtaxing the populace of Cordovia, while children go hungry and without basic necessities. Having learned the warrior arts of swordfighting, riding, and excelling at archery, she dresses in men's clothing and leads her band of Robin's Rebels to hold up the taxmen as they pass through the forest, and in other ways subvert the King's unjust policies. Robin meets fellow young rebel, Daniel, who also leads his own band of men who work against the government and help the unfortunate. After a challenge to see who has the most skills, they agree to work together. It doesn't take very long for Daniel to realize that Robin is a woman, and he respects her for being a strong person who stands up for what she believes. With each moment they spend working side by side, Robin and Daniel fall deeper in love. Their mutual desire to improve their country's welfare only fuels the fire of the growing affection for each other.
The Rebels of Cordovia is a historical fiction novel that teams a sweet love story with a light adventure tale about people standing up for others and for what is right, against a corrupt governmental system that exploits its population of rights and dignity and ignores their basic needs. Robin is a very lovable heroine, both endearing and admirable. She's caring, strong in character, and very good-hearted. Robin is a true believer who is not afraid to stand up for others. Daniel is a great match for her. He shares many of her traits, and has a grace that strong man born into privilege might not necessarily possess. Instead of taking advantage of the weak and assuming himself naturally superior, he views people whose stations in life differ from his with respect. I especially liked that he treated Robin as an equal and didn't dismiss her because of her sex. While he finds her attractive, he doesn't objectify her or make assumptions about her based on being a woman. Daniel is a really nice guy, with a lot of honor and class, but also an appealing although roguish sense of humor. The author makes it very believable that these two would fall in love. The camaraderie with other characters in this book charmed me, and I loved the caring, open relationships that Robin and Daniel share with their parents, and the esteem that their band of rebels show for them and each other.
While this was a very enjoyable read, I did have a few issues. It took a while to get immersed in the story. While Robin is clearly a very capable warrior, I was disappointed that she didn't have more fighting scenes. Although I liked that the rebels rarely resorted to violence, I feel that Robin should have been depicted in more of the hand-to-hand fighting, with added opportunities to acquit herself in physical confrontations. Also the narrative lacked a sense of grounding in the historical period. Some of the language was too modern-sounding and the descriptions could have been more detailed. As a result, the world-building was tenuous and didn't feel very authentic for a historical novel, even with its fictional setting. Additionally, the villains were not as well-developed. A point of view by the King would have enhanced this read.
Despite some minor issues, The Rebels of Cordovia is a novel that readers who enjoy the stories of freedom fighters like Robin Hood and Zorro will appreciate. The fact that the lead is a strong and self-actualized heroine is a great bonus. This is a feel good novel that makes you glad to see that intrepid heroines and heroes are out there, doing their part to make their world a better place.

Riding her horse one day, Laurel Smith meets a man who makes her want to open her closed world after many years living in the gray background....more Synopsis
Riding her horse one day, Laurel Smith meets a man who makes her want to open her closed world after many years living in the gray background. Tredway Lorent is not exactly a seasoned cowboy. Instead, he is a town-bred fellow with an eye for detail and organization, but he's interested in exploring his possible career options, including working on a horse ranch. She brings him back to Wells Double Bar, her brother and sister-in-law's ranch, and convinces her brother to give him a job, because she feels drawn to him and doesn't want him to walk out of her life just like he walked into it.
Tredway brings Laurel out of her shell, encouraging her art, and supporting her efforts to help others. In return, Laurel sparks this too-serious, too-thoughtful young man to enjoy life and accept that everything doesn't have to be so meticulously controlled, as well as going after his dreams. She finds her way into this heart, but fears of past failure still haunt him. Laurel knows that Tredway is the only man in her heart, but will she and her Perfect Tenderfoot ever make the move towards happily ever after as man and wife?
Perfect Tenderfoot is a sweet love story with two leads that are admirable and kind-hearted. Their interactions speak of deep friendship and admiration, with love growing slowly but surely. Beggs evokes images that take the reader back to life in in late 19th Century New Mexico. A strong sense of community is a highlight of this novel, as Laurel and Tredway continually help others in need, and expand their growing circle of friends and acquaintances.
I appreciated their good-heartedness, and their desire to live meaningful lives, as well as Laurel and Tredway's determination to conquer past fears and insecurities. However, the story was slow-moving at times, lacking sufficient romantic tension. While I could see that the love developing between Laurel and Tredway was genuine, I felt like it seemed to take a backseat to their continual efforts to help others and their personal emotional turmoil. Because of that lack of prominent romantic development, I didn't enjoy this novel quite as much as the first two in the series. However, the likable characters, the sense of community and the historical feel still make it more than an average read.
Perfect Tenderfoot is a novel for aficionados of sweet historical westerns who don't mind a lack of strong romantic tension. Laurel and Tredway are distinctive characters rendered with heartfelt sincerity by Beggs. That and the sense of strong community ties and a motivation to help others do make this book a worthwhile read, although not as successful on the romantic front.

I must say that they are one of my favorite Breed couples, and I always wondered how they got together. Overall, I enjoyed this book. I didn't like it quite as much as I wanted to though. I think that was because Gideon is so sex-bombalicious nerdtastic in the other books, I wanted to see more of his oh-so alluring geekiness. Instead, he was much like the other Breed males in his demeanor although there was a cool part about him creating a precursor to the laptop we know and love today (cause guess what I'm typing this review on right now?). Thus, this book didn't really stand out that much from the other books. That was probably my biggest issue and why this wasn't higher rated. Also, I didn't like (view spoiler)[how Gideon promised not to fight in the field because of Savannah's fear of it. To me, it makes her into the bad guy to take that away from him. Fact is, they live in a world with a lot of violence, and I think that Gideon's status as a warrior is honorable and something to be proud of. Yes, there is risk, but he's very good at what he does. I wouldn't want to take that away from him. It does answer why he doesn't fight, but since he had a bullet stuck in his head, that was just as good a reason for him not to fight (hide spoiler)]. Even though Gideon wasn't as geeky, I still liked him a lot. I love his typical British colloquialisms, which we see in this novella as well.
What I loved was getting to know Savannah. I really, really like her. She's very young, but she has a maturity that I respected about her. She's a very intellectual person with a keen mind, and I could see part of why they were drawn to each other. Also her strong sense of right and wrong, and that traditional heroic urge, which is addressed in the novella. When she gets a vision of Gideon by touching his sword, you could instantly feel that bond begin between them, and when they meet, the rest is inevitable.
One thing that stood out to me was that Adrian stays grounded in the 70s setting throughout this book. The scene when Gideon tells her to call the Order, she has to grab coins out of her purse and run outside to a pay phone. That was really well done. At first, I expected her to pull out her cell phone, and I would imagine that would be Adrian's gut instinct to write that, but she remembers that they don't have cell phones at that time. I was instantly reminded that this is set about thirty-odd years in the past. She didn't have to keep hitting me over the head with descriptions of bell-bottoms and stuff like that either.
Ultimately, if you're a fan of the Breed series, I don't see why you wouldn't like this. It has the same feel and intensity of the other books. I think the biggest draw was getting to see Gideon and Savannah's backstory on paper, and although it was a short novella, it was well done and I believe in their love, past, present and future. Of course, it was awesome to see more of Tegan, 'cause I just love him!
And I'm really happy to see a popular paranormal romance novelist who is upfront and comfortable with depicting a loving, committed interracial relationship in her books. Kudos for that, Ms. Adrian.
