Review: Noelle by Night (Dommes by Night #3) by Rachell Nichole

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. The final installment of the Dommes by Night series once again flips the script on its head. Nichole heightens the tension on multiple fronts, from the relationship between the main characters, to the hidden secrets, to the drama of the […]

Review: The Horse Mistress: Book 2 (Eburosi Chronicles #2) by R.A. Steffan

The epic fantasy world of Eburosi deepens, along with the relationship between Carivel, Senovo, and Andoc, in this second installment of The Horse Mistress. Many of the quibbles I had about the first book are addressed here, such as external conflicts that stand in the way of their relationship and more extensive world-building.

Review: Elle by Night (Dommes by Night #2) by Rachell Nichole

Disclaimer: The author is a friend of mine; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. The premise of this book immediately hooked me. Two dominants sparring with each other, even by telephone? Yes, please. However, Jo and Spencer immediately proved themselves to be amazing and three-dimensional characters. That 3D part is key in a […]

Review: The Warlord Wants Forever (Immortals After Dark #1) by Kresley Cole

I started this series on the recommendation of a friend who is a romance author, and I devoured this sexy novella in a single evening. I had certain preconceptions about the two main characters based on the back-cover text, which were smashed immediately. The heroine Myst, especially, was not what I expected at all. The […]

Reviews: “A Confidential Problem” and “A Private Miscellany” (Society of Gentlemen short stories) by K.J. Charles

The two following reviews are of content freely available on the author’s website as supplemental material to the Society of Gentlemen series. Neither can be read as stand-alone, but are best enjoyed following a read of the full series.

Review: The Surrender Gate (Desire Exchange #1) by Christopher Rice

After reading the novella set in the same universe, I immediately purchased the author’s full-length novel. And while I enjoyed it for what it was, a paranormal romance with plenty of erotic moments, I wasn’t as blown away as I was by my first experience with Rice’s writing. 

Review: Meik & Sebastian (Obsessed #1 & #2) by Quin Perin

Let’s get the obvious out of the way first: This is not a love story. Like the title says, this is one character lusting after another, both metaphorically and physically. Straight-up erotica and pretty much what it says on the tin. 

Review: Escaping Solitude (Escape #2) by Sara Dobie Bauer

Disclaimer: I received an ebook in exchange for an honest review. The moment I finished part one of the Escape Trilogy, Escaping Exile, I was already clamoring to the author that I needed part two right away. Of course, having completed part two, I’m begging for the conclusion immediately. While some middles of stories or trilogies […]

Review: Counterpoint (Twisted Wishes #2) by Anna Zabo

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. My favorite thing about this series is that it doesn’t follow the traditional romance script. While the story is inherently about the evolving relationship between two characters, the big climactic moment is not the two characters breaking up because one […]

Review: The Flame (1001 Dark Nights/Desire Exchange novella) by Christopher Rice

Often novellas either feel like a padded-out short story or a rushed novel. This was neither, giving all the background detail between each of the three main characters necessary to make the next step in their relationship feel natural and inevitable. Additionally, the supernatural element of the story blended seamlessly with the relationship arc between […]
