Review: The Night is Mine is the 1st on The Night Stalkers series. I had never read anything from M. L. Buchman, and I found that I really liked. Captain Emily Beale is a pilot, not a simple one, she's the first woman to get in SOAR, Special Operations Aviation Regiment. Which only accept the best from the best. She's in the top of the world when after a CNN interview she's sent back to US, to become head chef for the First Lady. However, she will have a double job. Acting as chef, and bodyguard. Major Mark Henderson, her Commanding Officer is not too happy when he learns of her being sent stateside, and after months of hiding feelings from her and just about everybody, he kisses her, a kiss that could end both their careers. There is a plot to kill the First Lady, and is Emily's mission to uncover the operation.
I really, really, really liked The Night is Mine. It's packed with action, and plots and twists and turns. There is a bit of romance, sex and a whole lot of steam between Emily and Mark. Emily is the perfect heroin. Not one to cower, she's one of the most fearless female character I had the pleasure to read. I also like that going in in a man's world, she doesn't back down, and hide behind a man, or turns submissive when she's out of the cockpit. Mark was a delight to read. I abso loved how he was described in the beginning, and how much of that was really true.
Loved The Night is Mine. Can't wait for the next on line!...more

To Sin With a Viking is a story about finding love in the most unexpected places, and with the most unexpected person. Styr and Caragh lead different lives, in different places and don't even speak the same language. He is known for being ruthless, a savage killer. Caragh lives in a village suffering from poverty and famine. They have no food, and are wasting away more every day.
That's why when Styr is about to land near Caragh's home, her brother plans on taking their food and ship.
Styr has been married for five years. He and his wife, Elena, have been trying to have a baby for a long while, and the absence of children is wrecking their marriage. For this reason, he's trying for a new beginning, in a new place. Hoping that this can save their marriage
At the landing, tired from the travel and the sea storms, Styr and his friends aren't prepared for the sudden attack from the villagers. When Elena is held hostage by Caragh's brother, she knows the giant Viking will kill her brother. So in order to protect the young and stupid boy, she attacks herself the viking knocking the lights out of him. All hell breaks loose, and Caragh manages to hold the viking as a prisoner. He's stupefied to have her care for him, and share the little food she's got. Caragh is a blow of fresh air in his life, and while she fears him, and what he may do with her brother when he finds him, she's attracted to him.
The attraction is mutual, but they are both aware of Styr married status. As the story goes, we can't help to feel for them. It becames obvious the feelings they have for each other. And is also impossible for them to act on these feelings. At some points, they walk on a very fine line of cheating.
During this book, they must overcome a lot of things, they have to save people, and at the same time find a way to be together without hurting others and their beliefs.
I really liked this book. Even though, historical romance isn't my favorite niche of genres, at reading this book's synopsis, I felt draw. Styr and Caragh became one of my favorite couples I've read this year. I totally recommend To Sin With a Viking for my friends who enjoy a good historical romance, and I'm really looking forward for the next in this series.

I started reading this thinking it was just some pseudo taboo and lots of sex. I wasn't expecting a plot, no less a good one at that.
Mona has a crush for her best friend's Dad, Isaac. She knows she's far too young for him and that he has a girlfriend, but that doesn't stop her feelings, though. After a fight with her drunken father, she runs to Isaac for help, and in the heat of the moment he reveals his feelings for her. Now Mona must decides if she continues with the stolen moments with the man she loves, or if she tell the truth to her best friend, risking to lose the two most importan person in her life.
I really liked this book, and would have rated higher if not for some typo and other mistakes like in the beginning of the book Isaac is described as having blue eyes, then they are emerald green. This is the kind of thing that makes me stop the story and wonder if I'm crazy. While it was a mistake, it didn't put me off the reading and I enjoyed this new author and am for sure gonna check other books by Jenika Snow....more
I'm not much into PNR, but I couldn't help myself when I saw this series. This is my first Cynthia Eden book. There were things I liked and some I just... Ugh get it over with it. For starts this feels REAL long. I thought it was 605 instead of 305 pages only.
Keenan is a angel of death, he carries the soulf of those who dies to another plane. Nicole is one of his charges, and he must carry her soul. Only he hesitates and she lives - or dies - to become a vampire. Now he's fell from the heavens and he wants her.
At first it was weird why Keenan was after Nicole. It seemed he was angry with her because he was now a fallen, when she had nothing to do with that. Nicole... This girl really knows how to collect enemies. I lost count of how many people wanted her dead throughout this book. I mean what's so special about her? And then when the end came I was just.... Uh... Nothing. Figures.
The story starts in New Orleans, a place I LOVE to read about. Unfortunately there weren't much details regarding the city, beyond the French Quarter, and a small mention to Katrina. Since this is New Orleans we're talking about, there are a lot of magical beings that I'd like to know more, however they're just thew in it and I had to cope to follow the storyline. And for last but not least... Love... I think somethings were just way too fast for my tastes. For this reason some stuff just makes no sense for me.

Wowza, did I totally LOVE this book! Katie Porter is a new author for me, I read a couple days ago their interviews at a book blog and got totally hooked on their books. First in the Vegas Top Guns series, Double Down has it all. It's erotica and romance with a great plot to hold it all together. P.S.: I laughed out loud at Ryan's nickname true meaning!...more

I liked and disliked this book. For one side it was well written, but there were some major flaws to the characters personality that irks me out. Both of them were terrible at understanding, listening and trusting the other. They were misunderstanding each other half the time and it was too darn annoying. Some parts could've been left out and the book reduced in at least 20%. In the end wasn't a bad reading, and I'll probably read Burford's again. Too Darn Hot, wasn't so hot after all....more
