A solid 3.5 read.

Likeable characters and interesting, intense environment. I love military romances, esp when there's a conflict between enlisted and officers. (It's catnip, what can I say.) The characters are very likeable and there's a great littl

So this is supposed to be funny. There are some amusing moments and perhaps in written form, it's better, but oh, holy hell, the audiobook is awful. The performance is a breathy, noisy and remarkably bland. The narrator made the heroine sound vapid a ...more

I really wanted to like this. Actually, I pretty much liked every scene that the heroine was not in. That pretty much summons it up. The heroine is a twit. Now, there are other problems, too. It tries too hard to be funny and after a while it becomes ...more

Boundary Crossed by Melissa F. Olson
"I feel like I've read this book before and better. It's not a bad book it just didn't grab me for some reason. It should be right up my alley but something is off about it and I can't quite workout what.

I like some of the ideas but the story meand..." Read more of this review »

Quite enjoyable. That might seem a tepid response, but when it comes to Illona Andrews, quite enjoyable is downright awesome for anyone else. Definitely, quite a great series to follow up with.

The most critical thing I can say is that Mad Rogan and

“Are you in great physical pain, or is that your thinking expression?”
G.A. Aiken, What a Dragon Should Know

Stephen King
“Running a close second [as a writing lesson] was the realization that stopping a piece of work just because it's hard, either emotionally or imaginatively, is a bad idea. Sometimes you have to go on when you don't feel like it, and sometimes you're doing good work when it feels like all you're managing is to shovel shit from a sitting position.”
Stephen King

Gena Showalter
“There was a dragon who had a long-standing obsession with a queen's breasts," she said, growing breathless. "The dragon knew the penalty to touch her would mean death, yet he revealed his secret desire to the king's chief doctor. This man promised he could arrange for the dragon to satisfy his desire, but it would cost him one thousand gold coins." She spread her soapy hands over his nipples, then down his arms. "Though he didn't have the money, the dragon readily agreed to the scheme."

Grace," Darius moaned, his erection straining against her stomach.

She hid her smile, loving that she had this much power over such a strong man. That she, Grace Carlyle, made him ache with longing. "The next day the physician made a batch of itching powder and poured some into the queen's bra… uh, you might call it a brassiere… while she bathed. After she dressed, she began itching and itching and itching. The physician was summoned to the Royal Chambers, and he informed the king and queen that only a special saliva, if applied for several hours, would cure this type of itch. And only a dragon possessed this special saliva." Out of breath, she paused.

Continue," Darius said. His arms wound around her so tightly she could barely breathe. His skin blazed hot against hers, hotter than even the steamy water.

Are you sure?"

Continue." Taut lines bracketed his mouth.

Well, the king summoned the dragon. Meanwhile, the physician slipped him the antidote for the itching powder, which the dragon put into his mouth, and for the next few hours, the dragon worked passionately on the queen's breasts.

Anyway," she said, reaching around him and lathering the muscled mounds of his butt, "the queen's itching was eventually relieved, and the dragon left satisfied and touted as a hero."

This does not sound like a joke," Darius said.

I'm getting to the punch line. Hang on. When the physician demanded his payment, the now satisfied dragon refused. He knew that the physician could never report what really happened to the king. So the next day, the physician slipped a massive dose of the same itching powder into the king's loincloth. And the king immediately summoned the dragon."
