I had a blast following Sally's journey to Texas. Even though the adventure was terrible and at sometimes heartbreaking for the characters, I learned a lot from them. For us in the 21st century, a trip to Texas might entail a long or short airplane trip (depending on where you live) or possible a slightly uncomfortable car ride. For the characters in A Desperate Journey, a trip to Texas is a dangerous journey full of feral Native Americans and hunger. I'm delighted that Ms. Parmley didn't sugar coat the trip, making it unrealistic. She showed us how the trip might have gone if the characters were real people and for that I'm impressed.
Sally's determination fuels mine. Sure, I'm not itching to snatch my kid away from an abusive hubbie, but I do have people and things that are troublesome (we all do, don't we?). The way she never gives up, helps me to be courageous just like her! Characters that we hero-worship help us (or just me. Either way, it helps) to be strong in real life situations. For example, I have a bunch of medical problems that usually go on all at the same time. I read Sally's determination and strength and want to be just like her.
This book really engages a reader's emotions. I can't even count how many times I teared, laughed, and became rapt with excitement. When a book captures emotion to that length, you KNOW it is a great book, destined (hopefully) for best-sellerdom.
I really liked this book! You know my opinion now, check it out yourself, then tell me how you like it!
Historical fiction lovers would enjoy this thrilling adventure! Anyone that is a fan of justice would enjoy delving into this read.(less)

Readers (or just me) are instantaneously addicted to all the goings on happening in Pirate's Proposal, because Ms. Layne is a fantastic writer! I usually don't enjoy such a short read, because I feel like I haven't gotten to know the characters well enough, but this is not the case! This novel took me on a grand adventure of blue waters and yummy men, and I'm telling you, if Charles and Gina don't work out, I call dibs!
The Gypsy Doll is something new and exciting--I've not read anything like it. There's nothing I enjoy more than mystique and magic (well, maybe hottie pirates, but that's besides the point); this novella did not disappoint!
If you enjoy pirate's as hot as Jack Sparrow (swoon), adventure as fun as Indiana Jones, and romance as yummy as Romeo and Juliet (without the sad ending) please pick up this book on Amazon! You won't regret it!(less)

This book was funny, sexy, and downright fun! I had a delightful adventure following Julia around as she helped reestablish Camp Winnehatchee. But I had an even better time watching her fall back in love with Adam and reading all about their hot chemistry.
I can relate to Julia's childhood. I was the same as her when everyone else was out playing with their friends, I was inside reading a book. Books were (are) my best friends, and I am not ashamed to admit it. I love to delve into the pages of a good book, and not emerge until four or five in the morning. That's just the way I am.
Back to the review...My favorite part of the story: When Julia and Adam meet again, I laughed out loud! Julia can do some damage with that swing of hers! Too funny.
I thought the sexual encounters were very original, very Kate Hoffman and no one else. Trust me when I say I have read tons of romance, erotica, straight sex. Some of the stuff in this book, I have never read before!
The part I hated most (because of Julia's embarrassment) was when they found her childhood diary! Oh, the horror! She wrote a LOT of entries featuring her and Adam.
This book is a fabulous, chuckle worthy romance written especially to entice women. Go for it!(less)

I found them to be real, somewhat quirky, and downright sexy. I'm sad now that I have finally finished the series (I read them out of order, this is not the last book). I guess I'll just have to reread to get my hot cowboy fix.
I have to gush over Haven's adorableness. He's shy and timid (which does not fit with his sexiness, but it works for him). He doesn't see his attractiveness, and that makes him ever so cute. He's a character you really just want to give a big, fat, hug not matter his orientation.
Phillip really surprised me. I don't know if it was his affair with Dakota (with his alpha male personality), but I never figured him for the dominant person in a relationship, but that's how it went down with him and Haven. I loved how we took the time to play out Haven's fantasies. He's caring and considerate; who doesn't want that in a man? I find Sexual Phillip weird (the whole leather fetish) , but oh so delicious.
Now I'm left with the agonizing question: why are all the good guys either taken or gay? I mean, that's good for Haven, but not for me. Sigh.
This book was fabulous! Cannot say how great Mr. Grey is at writing a romance.
If you like your men hot, your romance sweet, and your sex dirty, check out A Troubled Range by Andrew Gray. You will not be disappointed.(less)

I love those! This story was about facing your fears. Fiona is terrified of bees, but she was sent to get the story about a honey hunter. A majorly hot honey hunter.
A lot of people say when they read a short story, "I wish this was longer." I'm guilty of saying it too on occasion. However, that is NOT the case with this one. I feel like if one were to make it longer, they would change up the story, and I would have it stay exactly ow it is. It's perfect.
If you're looking to read something not a billion pages long, this is your story. It's fabulous!(less)

She has developed a whole new world!There is nothing more boring than reading a book that is the exact replica of another book. Fortunately, this is not one of them.
Book is so...fascinating! There is so much to learn, like the "nine saints" of Brittany. I have never heard of this stuff! Fabulous stuff is found throughout the pages of Grave mercy.
When Duchess Anne was mentioned, I realized she was young, but I never figured her to be twelve years old! A 12 year old Queen? Dear lord. Things were VERY different back then.
As much as I loved to read the adventures Ismae (fantastic name, by the way. So unique!), I did have one thing that I had a problem with:
There were a lot of places where the writing didn't flow as smoothly as I would have hoped. It became awkward to read in a few spots. I can't tell you how much I hate awkward lulls.
My favorite parts to read in this book were in the beginning. I loved it when the nuns where teaching the girls how to kill their (shudder) prey. It was so creepy, but awesome as well, and a little humorous, too if you're weird like me. These Sisters of Mortain are CREEPY (in a fascinating way)!
I never really enjoy a book that is written in present tense, but the obvious research that Ms. Lafevers did makes up for it. In all, I didn't hate it.
This book is recommended for all YA romance readers, as well as historical and adventure lovers. I enjoyed reading it, and hopefully you will as well!(less)

Not to say I haven't read BDSM before, but Safeword: Matte is a whole new world. No fun and games, this is series sadism, masochism. I learned a lot from this novel. It's not all about hurting or being hurt, it's about a different kind of pleasure. I felt very enlightened at the end of this story. I learned a lot about the BDSM scene afterwards.
The sex scenes (when they actually get around to it) are fantastic! Lost of description and detail. Not conservative in the least, which makes it awesome!
The book is centered around Martial Arts, and I for one found it fascinating. It remind me of a series by Lori Foster in that regard. Love it!
I enjoy reading romances set in Georgia. I live here, and always dig into a book featured in my Southern state. I love it here, and like to read about people who do as well.
The only problem I found in the book is that sometimes the words don't flow smooth enough. The picture is clear, it's not that I can't see what Ms. Blevins wrote, but sometimes dialogue is to proper for people who are so intimate. Fortunately, it doesn't distract too much from the story, so that's okay.
How 'bout I tell you who is NOT the recommended audience? Conservatives, people who like a sweet, mushy romance. Anyone who is squeamish probably would not like it too much. There isn't any blood or gore (unless we are talking in the arena), but this is a story about a relationship between a sadist and a masochist. (less)

Our unusually named Blade should make you want to dig into this novel, if nothing else does.
One of my most favorite things about this novel is of course the pirates! Ever since Johnny Depp played hottie (crazy too) Captain Jack Sparrow, I eat up any pirate romance novel I can get my hands on! Blade is no disappointment either in the hotness factor. He is definitely the icing on the cake!
My favorite character in this novel is Henri (or is it Henry? Not sure..). He may be a drunkard that does not like sharing his booze, but he is a funny old man that helps Marisol out once or twice.
There is one scene that I play over and over in my head. The time that Marisol and Blade eat a private dinner in Blade's room, and they are arousing each other with their food...priceless! I laughed through the whole thing. That may not be the emotion Ms. Bray-Weber was looking for, but that's what it did for me. I'm nothing if not honest. And I can honestly say this was the most unique and spectacular pirate romance I have ever had the pleasure to read. I've read a bunch, if your wondering.
If you love hot sex, pirate adventures, and lots of fast-paced action, then you will LOVE A Kiss in the Wind. I can almost guarantee any historical fan would adore this book. I sure did! (less)

Little did she know that the owner of the strip club/bar next door would be so hot! Unfortunately, he REALLY does not fit the normal, boring (cough cough) image she's looking for. Violet does not fit his bimbo airhead standards. Can they get over their differences for true love?
My first thought of this novel was-wow, never thought I'd read a romance about a straight guy owning a bar that employs male strippers. I was wrong. My second thought-he must be really confident in his sexuality. I can honestly say this is one original book!
I absolutely love Violet. She's quirky (even though she strives to be normal), she's funny (in a dry wit sort of way), she's delightful (in a oh-poor-her-come-give-me-a-hug way). And she is a hilarious drunk! My god, I hope I never, ever dance on table if I were to ever become drunk (I'd hate to see how alcohol mixed with my many many meds). Drunk Violet is even better than sober Violet. She is, in fewer words, quite crazy (again, even if she wants to be "normal"). There is nothing wrong with a gorgeous, funky, crazy gal! She is my favorite character of all time-even if my favorites are usually lesser characters.
Wanna know my favorite part of this fun adventure? When Violet and drew are on separate dates and they just "happen" to meet each other at the exact same restaurant. They are all making introductions, and that is when I first realized Drew had no idea what his dates name was! This was their THIRD date! All through the date he is trying to figure out her name and it is so funny! Oh, the joy.
Anyone who loves a romance, should read this! It's so hilarious-you WILL enjoy this novel!(less)
