Dark Deceiver (The Esri # 2)

Outlander (Outlander, #1)
I read this book years ago and didn't get hooked by the series because of the violence in it. However, many years later I've become more used to viole...more

Amethyst Destiny (Jewels of Time , #2)
I get to read Pam's books first -- even before her editor does -- which makes me a very lucky reader. This is a wonderful follow up to Saphire Dream....more

The MacKinnon's Bride (The Highland Brides, # 1)
Wonderful Scottish historical romance by a master writer! This was my first book by Ms. Crosby but it won't be the last. Highly recommended!

One Mississippi
I enjoyed the story, but felt the setting was less than important to the story. It could have been any small town/any state in the south. That disappo...more

Love, love, love this book! Okay, Pam is a good friend of mine, but even so, this is an excellent contemporary paranormal romance. Better yet, it's th...more

Darkfever (Fever, #1)
Not much for romance and the heroine didn't grab me. I'll probably pick up the next book in the series to see if the romance heats up.
