First let me start off and say I hate serial books. Totally hate them. However I did bite at Entwined for two reasons. One, it was free. Second, it was a Tarzan and Jane book. I have always been so intrigued with Tarzan and Jane and I thought there certainly isn't any harm is downloading a freebie from Amazon.
I wasn't disappointed but I also wasn't thrilled either. I would bet if I read this story as a full length novel, I'd have liked it a whole bunch more. One of the reasons I despise serial books is because each book leaves off on a cliffhanger and you are forced to buy the next installment to read on. I really really reallllly hate that. It is such a turn off for me. I'd rather have spent $5 and got the entire book than a grabby grab for a continuous purchases. Oh well, I knew that going in so I shouldn't really complain. Good on the author for letting it been known in the book blurb that it is a serial book before you buy.
The writing was really good. Great descriptions. Easy to follow and even though it was a novella, I got to know the characters pretty fast. Since it is an erotic novella, there are a few great steamy scenes. Of course you have to read further into the series to get the smoking steamy scenes.
Couldn't go wrong for a free purchase but the carrot that was dangled in front of my face at the end did not entice me to move on to the next book. ...more

Review: It was sweet and I liked that the story featured an older heroine with grown adult children. It was a nice change that the heroine wasn't a young virgin and rather a mature woman who is still sexy and desirable. A very short story so I was a bit leery on marriage entering into any thoughts or conversations. Oh well. Its Christmas so let the magic work right? Teaser: Cute play on mistletoe usage.
1818 - One Kiss for Christmas by Vanessa Kelly
Review: It is hard for anthology romance novels to have believable love stories but One Kiss for Christmas completely sold me. What a sweet and touching short love story. There was a great couple, true love and even time for an arrogant villain to be added to the mix. Great Christmas spirit throughout the story. I don't recall reading other Vanessa Kelly novels but I liked her style. Teaser: A good Father Christmas would make a good father
1825 - His Christmas Cinderella by Anna Campbell
Review: His Christmas Cinderella was starting out to be my favourite of the anthology but near the ending, it lost me. I loved the beginning so much and the "Cinderaellaish" circumstances that brought the pair together. However, the author lost me when she had the "Cinderella", Campion constantly doubt her Scottish "Prince", Laachlan all the way to a ball in a carriage ride. Their entire conversation made me wish that they hadn't spoke a word to each other. That conversation is where their personalities came out and I decided that I didn't like Campion at all and Lachlan seemed like a big wimp. Teaser: A twist on a Cinderella story
1830 - The Last First Kiss by Kate Noble
Review: Best for last. I loved The Last First Kiss! I totally adore stories when the protagonists have a memorable history dating back to their childhoods. When these types of stories are done right, they are fabulous...and The Last First Kiss was fabulous. All through the anthology series the readers are treated to a secondary story starring the Grosvenor Square hostess and her faithful butler. The Last First Kiss brought a completely satisfactory ending to their story. Loved it. The main story with Susannah and Sebastian is the story that brought all the smiles though. Great couple!

*fist pump* YES! A new series to fall in love with. I've had Fatal Affair on my Kindle for awhile now and I've finally gotten around to reading it. Fatal Affair was an Amazon free Kindle purchase at one time. Giving away the first book of a series is such a great idea because I am hooked and I will gladly purchase more books in this Fatal series.
Sam is a heroine to be admired. She was a well respected detective in her police precinct with a reputation of being smart. I loved that the author wrote that Sam was admired among her peers. I was really hoping I wouldn't be dragged down a road where Sam was involved in a stereotypical battle where "a woman was working in a man's world". Thankfully the author didn't go there and instead I was treated to a fabulous story.
I found myself imagining the character Kate Beckett from the TV show Castle while picturing Sam Holland. She is a strong and capable female police sergeant that has a great insight and instincts. Yet, she is still feminine and venerable. Sam was a huge draw for me on how much I loved Fatal Affair. Well I'll be honest, Nick (the male protagonist) was also an excellent character. I loved how realistic his character was. He threw up when he encountered a gruesome murder crime scene just like a civilian would. Nick understood that Sam had a tough job to do and although his manly pride got a bit wounded during a couple of scenes, he was bright enough to realize that Sam was damn good at her job and he had to swallow his pride.
The location of the story is set in Washington DC and the the flavour of the story is political as well as being deeply ensconced in the law enforcement environment. The mix was suspenseful, the murders to solve were brutal and the mystery kept me engaged the entire story.
I will happily seek out book 2 and read it soon.

I adore author Kallypso Masters' BDSM romance books and I often see her pimp out another BDSM author, Cherise Sinclair's books. Club Shadowlands was on sale for free on Amazon and I snatched it up. I am always interested in reading a "new to me" author that has been highly recommended by another author I respect.
Being as Club Shaowlands was book 1 in the series, this first book is the introduction to the club and this story is about the Club Shadowlands owner, Master Z or Zachary.
I have read plenty of BDSM romance books and I would say that Club Shadowlands was a bit on the soft side. I would suggest that it would be a great book if someone was interested in reading a BDSM book as an introduction to the genre. I admit to thinking that since the story was about the club owner, Master Z, that this novel would be a lot more heavier. Regardless, it was a good read and Master Z was a stellar Dom.
I was on the fence about Jessica. I liked her in some aspects and in others, something about her annoyed me. As Jessica was completely new to the lifestyle and all that it entailed, I felt her puzzled emotions and her hestitated decisions were all justified. I thought her confusion between abuse and BDSM was totally valid.
The intimate scenes between Jessica and Master Z were awesome. Actually my favourite part of the story *big grin* The scenes were well written and really hot. As steamy as the scenes were, they were not heavy BDSM. Yes there was bondage, toys and one very short spanking scene but the rest was basically super hot vanilla. As I mentioned, a great introduction into the BDSM genre and I'd happily recommend Club Shadowlands to someone who was curious about BDSM stories.

I wanted to love this book, Nate. I really did. Nate just came across as a unmemorable story for me that lacked incentive for me to continue with reading the rest of the series. I liked it well enough but just not enough to read on.
I didn't connect with the heroine, Elisa at all. For me, the strength of a book usually rests on the heroine's shoulders. At every turn Elisa was an immature perplexing woman that changed moods and story direction with each page. Even though her family was wronged in the most atrocious manner, I couldn't pull any character growth from her. One moment she was cunning, brave and highly protective of her family and then in the next moment she was an inexperienced virginal cowgirl seducing the educated former soldier, Nate. She lost her virginity to him up against a tree and then she rides away as if nothing happened. The next day, she shoots and injures his best friend. Elisa was like a B rated action movie all on her own. I haven't a clue how or why Elisa and Nate fell in love.
Another component to Elisa that I found off-putting was that she was described as dirty and wearing thread bare pants. For a rancher girl I totally get that. But when it came to intimate scenes, I wish there was a mention of how clean she was at that particular time or some blurb indicating that she'd had a bath or washed her hair. I kept picturing a mess of a woman and I just wanted to hose her down or something.
What I did like about the book was the scheme and the creative twist the book had to offer. It was interesting how the story unfolded and how the story-centered real estate deal disentangled. I enjoyed the friendship between the Devils on Horseback men and their camaraderie is worth more than a mention. They are as loyal as they come and their alliance with one another is embedded in a deep history. The group of men have been through a lot of life changing events together. The risks they are willing to take for one another was highly admirable.
I was lucky enough to have picked up Exclusively Yours for free quite awhile ago on Amazon Kindle. I had it sit for a long time on my TBR (to be read list) until the right moment came along to read. I had just finished a suspense romance and then I read an awesome historical romance and I was craving a sweet contemporary story that would leave me smiling. Shannon Stacey totally delivered! I am still smiling.
I am a total sucker for a romance that started way back when the protagonists were teenagers. I am also a total sucker for a romance novel where the protagonists are almost forty and mature but playful. So I just knew that Exclusively Yours was right up my alley.
Let me start with Keri. I loved Keri and I could relate to her often. I personally hate camping and all that is associated with camping. With Exclusively Yours taking place almost entirely during a huge family camping trip I could understand all that she experienced. Complete with tents, cabins, campers, RVs and ATVs, there was no shortage of sticky marshmallows, rain, shared bathhouses and camp fires; I loathed it all. So every time the city slicker Keri had to endure a communal bathhouse for a shower, an uncomfortable bed or stinking bug spray, I was right there with her. It was fun to read about but I sure have no desire to experience it.
The Kowalski family are a riot. They provided great comic relief but of course the quiet Joe Kowalski was my favourite. Joe is a great character because he is just an ordinary guy. No major alpha thing going on. No bulging muscles or He-man attitude. He is a very successful writer who loves his entire family and in terms of scandal, Joe is rather boring. In fact, I found him rather sentimental in regards to all his teen-aged memories of Keri. Although they were only eighteen (and I have kids this age) it appears that Keri and Joe's romance was pretty deep.
Joe was a softy and it is great to read about a beta male every now and then. Their kindled romance made for an awesome read and if you love a story about second chances or a more mature romance with a real life edge, Exclusively Yours is right for you.
There are a lot of secondary character stories included in Exclusively Yours as well. The story had a huge mixture of different types of marriage relationships. I think it would be a great romantic comedy movie.

I have to admit, I was not a fan of this story. Unfortunately I did not connect with the characters nor did I particularly like them. The cover art is beautiful and Undone just happened to be an Amazon freebie when I downloaded it. There are a lot of high ratings for Undone so it confuses me on why I didn't care for it as much as others. Hopefully I can accurately explain why it didn't do it for me.
Angelica literally runs into Simon right outside her home at night. Her home just happened to be a convent. Through the moonlight, Simon couldn't help but notice her beauty. She continued on her path and ran into the convent. Simon felt compelled to run in after her.
The story started out interesting enough. Almost immediately Simon was thrown into the role of hero and Angelica was ungrateful for his heroic efforts. Right off the bat I had a feeling I was not going to really enjoy the story. I loath stories where miscommunications are used to drive the plot forward. From withheld secrets to misinterpreted conversations I was beginning to dislike the story as I started to move through the pages.
It was also driving me nuts as Simon's penis seemed to have a mind of it's own. It was unruly and hard pretty much each and every page and I was getting bored with reading about Simon constantly fighting his raging hard-on. Angelica really hadn't done anything enduring enough to earn such strong feelings. Okay, she was stunning to look at in her plain grey convent garb but really, there was nothing that would make me understand Simon's feelings toward her.
There is a scene on ship where Angelica is locked away on in a cabin. I get her anger. I understand her anger. As a woman I want to side with her but the way she handles the situation like a immature, spoiled child throwing furniture and screaming made me rather wish someone would just throw her overboard. She orders someone to get Simon (the ship's captain) and he comes to her aid. She is so freaking spazzy and as soon as Simon sees her with her messy hair, guess what? He gets a hard on.
There is a good setup where by the author draw parallel lines of Simon's background and Angelina's background. Both hate and despise the same man, Fouquet but since both refuse to talk to each other about their lives, a major opportunity to join forces is completely lost. Instead they both walk around aroused, attracted, mad and in Simon's case, hard.
One of my other main dislikes was mostly centered around the writing style. I don't like being constantly told how each of the characters feel on practically every single line. As a reader I like to experience the emotions along with the protagonists. I'd rather feel the anger, lust, embarrassment or whatever the emotion is by reading about their expressions. It is okay to have the emotions laid out once in a while but it was so constant and just seemed way over done.
"She felt warn and right in his arms" "He felt disgust down to the very marrow..." "He felt like a complete imbecile" "she felt...feminine."
It just "felt" like every other sentence was having it explained to me. I hope I am explaining this well enough.
Undone does get better the second half of the book but maybe because I kept picking up the book up and putting in down, Undone lost the drive for me to embrace the story.
Undone may be the forth book in the series but you can 100% read this story as a stand alone. ...more
Despite the fact I could not stand the heroine, Lollie, Just a Kiss Away was a great story. One adventure after another. I guess I have to thank Lollie for all of those moments but still, annoying is one effective word to describe her.
Just a Kiss Away seemed like a really long book. It kept going and going and just when I thought it was going to wind down, something else popped up. Lottie and Sam experience one adventure after another. Hacking their way through bug infested jungles to escaping mercenaries and armed soldiers, Sam put up with a lot of Lottie's inexperience and jinx ridden aversions.
I understand why Lottie was the way she was. In 1896 women were still really sheltered and with Lottie having a whole slew of older brothers guarding her every move, the lady never got to experience much. Lottie could barely walk by a table without toppling it over. A lot of screaming, crying, whining and sulking by Lottie almost had me giving up on the book. I am not a fan of helpless women and Lottie was pretty much the most helpless women I have ever about. Even her general attitude was childish. I stuck it out because I was driven to see how it would all end. I am glad I did.
Sam may have been a mercenary but Lottie was his match. I could not tell you how many times I felt sorry for him. Not pity. I felt sorry for him because I would never want to be stuck with a person like Lottie tracking through jungle. He had way more patience than I ever would have had.
Lottie antics did allow for some very funny scenes and just as many eye rolling moments. There really are no slow pauses in Just a Kiss Away as the story was constantly moving. It was like an action movie.
Some great quotes: Lollie and Sam yelling at each other "If Abraham's son had been like you, Sam Forester, it wouldn't have been a sacrifice!" "If Christ'd had you along, he wouldn't have needed a cross to become a martyr."
Sam after Lollie accidentally stabs him with a knife "Any bastard stupid enough to give Lollie LaRue a knife deserves to get stabbed."

I have read all kinds of smut and I find I love the D/s (BDSM) stories a lot. However I had not yet read a story on domestic discipline. I am completely open to new types of smut genres so when Underwear Probation was offered for free on Amazon, I totally downloaded it.
I love spanking stories but I think I was confusing spanking stories with domestic discipline and I have now learned that they are not the same thing. I don't like to have strict and frivolous rules dictated to the heroine and then to have her punished like a child by her husband if they are broken. I am being clear on this review because someone may totally find that hot and if so, Underwear Probation is for you.
Underwear Probation was different for me so I'm glad I tried it but I think I stick to my hot smutty spanking stories that are not set out as punishment and discipline.

Well hell, that was a depressing read. It was a well written book but I just feel really depressed and that is not how I like to close out a romance read. I imagine that Because of You is really close to what military families and officers experience; and that just depresses me further.
The entire story was how Shane and his fellow military buddies recover from the aftermath of war. It was depressing and sad. Even the heroine, Jen is recovering from her own personal battle from cancer.
Because of You is heavy and emotional and when the protagonists gain just a little of happiness, I found I was over celebrating because there just aren't that many triumphs. To be honest, I almost stopped reading numerous times but I was determine to get to the end so I could selfishly have a happily ever after with this couple. I got there and wondered what the entire book was leading up to? Depressing page after depressing page and then the happily ever finally arrived on the_last_page followed by a quick epilogue.
The writing was excellent and Because of You did pull a lot of emotion from me but I don't think I will be moving on to any more books in the series. I would recommend Because of You to anyone who loves a military story that is very realistic and deals with the aftermath of war. For me, I like my fantasy world. This one hit too close to home and was very real. It left a lump in my throat and it was too heavy as a romance. ...more
I saw Masters at Arms for free on Amazon and I grabbed it. I saw all the fabulous ratings and moved it up on my TBR list. I am so glad I did because it was just fabulous. I didn't get really what this book was all about so let me explain. Masters at Arms is basically a few small stories that are perfectly set up preludes to each of the male protagonist's own books. What a great marketing tool. As the reader you get the back stories of each US Marines and then you move on to their own books in order. Each of the men served with one another in combat and then remained friends after the war. That's not to say that Masters at Arms is a short read at all. In fact, it was more lengthier than I had thought it would be. Or maybe it was because it was so damn good and I was provided such top notch stories, it just felt longer. Regardless, it was fabulous. What a deal for $0.00!
My favourite is the first story about Adam. Adam has lost his wife to cancer so he already had the sympathy card going for him. He really loved his wife and he is overwhelmed with guilt since he was deployed for so much of his marriage. They did have a D/s relationship and the story really touches on how much he just misses and loved her. He is about to give up on life when a 16 yr old runaway drops on his lap and he can't resist but to protect her. So, Adam had me for loving his wife so much, missing her desperately and now he can't help himself but step into a hero role. It was adorable seeing Karla (the runaway) hero worship Adam. There is a huge age difference here but as the reader you understand that nothing is going to happen between them for years to come. I am most anticipating their book, Nobody's Hero.
Next story is Damian's book. I did get confused because he is referred to as Damian and then other times he is referred by his last name, Orlando. And to just to further add into the confusion, he apparently looks like Orlando Bloom. The love interest in this story is so heart wrenching. Savannah is slave to her own father and he prostitutes her out to sadists. Her story is not for the weak of heart. I am really looking forward to some happily ever after in their book, Nobody's Perfect. The story provided in Masters at Arms did not leave off in a good place for them.
Marc is the other character but I didn't really find him very interesting. I didn't really connect with his story as much as the others and his book, Nobody's Angel is up first. I kind of want to go by it but I am a stickler for reading books in order so I will go there first. I am sure that I will love it because this package deal of Masters at Arms really got to me.
So what else to you want to know? Yes there is sex, and it is good but Masters at Arms is way more than an erotic novel. The intimates scenes are really secondary to me in this story. There was no sex in the first story, just puppy love. There was hard core BDSM in the second story and then just a bit in the third story. Once the men became friends there may have been a scene or two but I don't really recall since it was not central.

Private Property seemed like a great fit and since I had it on my Kindle already, I'd say it was perfect timing to give it a go.
I loved the beginning where Jodi was doing her surveillance work. I also liked when she was acting all ninja like by breaking into the house. She gets caught and as it turns out, the sexy wish list she made was just about to be granted by her boss & boyfriend.
I have to say that the menage scenes were mediocre to me because I didn't really like the third that was brought in. He seemed very beefy and the way he acted so protective of Jodi was just weird. He just met her. It was odd that he was "if you ever hurt I'll hurt you" attitude. It was overly brotherly or fatherly and very odd since he only met her that night.
It was a quick read so there was not a whole lot of time for character development but I would recommend for a short sexy read. Seeing as I got it for free, it was a great deal.
Taken by the Cowboy was one of those Twitter feed posts that grabbed my attention. "Free - Taken by the Cowboy" I didn't even read the blurb. I just saw "free" and I saw "cowboy" and clicked to download. Even after I loaded the book onto my trusty Kindle, I still didn't read the book blurb. So I'm reading away and right at the very beginning of the book, I was captured. Emotionally sad but gripping beginning. Then the next chapter, wow same thing. So I'm clicking away and then I wonder what the heck is going here and THEN I read the blurb. Taken by the Cowboy is a time travel book. Awesome. What a surprise. I was not expecting that from just glancing at the yummy front cover. So now that I understood what was happening, I hunkered down to enjoy the story.
I do enjoy time travel stories. They often leave me wondering what I would do if I was in that situation. I believe that I would have handled myself pretty much the same way that Jessica, the female protagonist of Taken by the Cowboy did. That is great news because it made the story not so far fetched.
Jessica is transported back in time to around the 1888 time era and is in Dodge City, Kansas. She is stumbling around town there wondering what movie set she fell into and in less than an hour she is somehow implicated in committing murder against a highly wanted man. Enters in Sheriff Truman Wade and her journey back in time became that much more interesting.
Taken by the Cowboy was a truly fun and enjoyable read. The old west is not romanticized and there is no shortage of cow dung stink and the lack of women's rights is apparent. Even her clothing was not made out to be fabulously garbed out. Jessica or shall I say "Junebug Jess" as she is now affectionately called stumbles into dangerous situation after dangerous situation. Trouble finds her like a fly to a pile of cow dung. As Truman and Jessica become closely acquainted, Jessica is becoming torn on the matter of returning back to her own time or staying to be with Truman if the opportunity presents itself. I felt her befuddlement. The confusion was so well written and it was certainly left up to the reader to decide what they would do in that circumstance.
I completely enjoyed the story and I loved the writing. I will certainly not hesitate to look up this author, Julianne MacLean's other works.

Free Kindle Charlotte Fallon and Sir Michael Bayard's story.
I don't mean to mean but I didn't care for the writing structure. Maybe it was just my foFree Kindle Charlotte Fallon and Sir Michael Bayard's story.
I don't mean to mean but I didn't care for the writing structure. Maybe it was just my formatting on Kindle I don't know. Usually when there is a break in time, there is a literal space or a chapter change. I was constantly confused when one moment the character was thinking something and then the very next line, she/he is doing exactly what they were just thinking. For instance, one moment she was thinking about cutting out and stealing paintings and the very next line she was tied to a chair and caught at a pawn shop awaiting punishment. I was so confused. There should have been a break. This happened alot.
The next complaint is that there seems to be introduction of characters that weren't needed. On Jane Street, what was the purpose of the plot to introduce Laurette or Lady Christie? They offered no advance in the story at all. I see that this is book 1 so maybe it was necessary to introduce them because they are going to be the new characters in the next book but it was a terrible set up. After Charlotte left Jane St, there was no mention of them again and they did nothing to further the plot. They were not interesting enough to capture my attention for a follow up book. Generally if there are going to be a series you have to make those secondary characters apart of the plot or story so that readers will want to come back. As it is right now, I am done with the books.
The beginning plot itself was good and it caught my attention right away. With Charlotte's sister leaving her behind to replace herself as the courtesan as she ran away to get married. Of course the set up to dislike Deb was immediate and I did want to read on to see what would happen.
For the life of my I have no idea why Sir Michael Bayard found Charlotte interesting or why he fell in love with her. Nor do I get why Charlotte fell for him. Especially when he tied her to the bed. I am ALL for kink and if you read my other books and reviews you'll see but that was bodice ripper to me. It also took a long time for all the love to sink in and in the mean time, I could barely tolerate them. I did like how they eventually got together at his estate and I did like that part of the book. It helped me try and forget all the stuff I didn't care for in the middle. ...more

The heat was awesome in this book and just the right amount/level for how short the story was. Now even though it was shorter than a full novel, the story didn't feel rushed or hurried along. It was paced excellently and I really felt I got a great plot. Normally when a story is shorter I almost never give it more than 3 stars because I usually think that there was not enough for me to get involved but that was not the case here. I totally enjoyed it even if I paid $5 or higher.
