Review: Subtle Blood (Will Darling Adventures #3) by K. J. Charles

Read my reviews of the previous books in the Will Darling Adventures series: Slippery Creatures (#1) The Sugared Game (#2) In most series in the suspense/thriller realm, even as a subgenre, the overall sense of danger starts small and then grows larger to encompass a threat to more people. Charles subverts this pattern for theContinue reading “Review: Subtle Blood (Will Darling Adventures #3) by K. J. Charles”

Review: Revolver (Boys of Bow Street #1) by Vera Leigh

Disclaimer: I received an advance electronic copy of this novel from the author. I’m not quite sure how this book ended up on my radar, but I decided to take a chance on accepting a review copy by a debut author because I know how difficult the publishing industry can be to newcomers. I tendContinue reading “Review: Revolver (Boys of Bow Street #1) by Vera Leigh”

Review: Blind Tiger (The Pride #1) by Jordan L. Hawk

Hawk granted my wish and returned to his clever and imaginative Hexworld series—except moving the action to a new time and place. Prohibition Chicago is rife with story fodder, especially where magic is involved, and this book is no different. Hawk takes the traditional, in which a small-town guy escapes to the big city andContinue reading “Review: Blind Tiger (The Pride #1) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: The Gentle Art of Fortune Hunting by K.J. Charles

Charles brings many of my favorite things about her writing to this book, such as dynamic and memorable characters and the politics of family and society. Robin and Hart clash immediately, which of course means that they are meant for each other. Hart sees through Robin and his sister’s fortune-hunting scheme and sets out toContinue reading “Review: The Gentle Art of Fortune Hunting by K.J. Charles”

Review: The Sugared Game (Will Darling Adventures #2) by K.J. Charles

Read my review of the Will Darling Adventures #1, Slippery Creatures. Charles has such a fantastic gift for crafting worlds that I want to fall into, populated by characters I want to befriend. In fact, beyond the plot and romance of this particular novel, one of the elements I love best about it is theContinue reading “Review: The Sugared Game (Will Darling Adventures #2) by K.J. Charles”

Review: London Lovers Series by Sierra Simone

“The Seduction of Molly O’Flaherty” (Book 0.5) After meeting these characters in Simone’s Markham Hall series, I was intrigued enough to follow them to London for their romance saga. Like it says on the tin, this story is not necessary for the following books. However, it does an excellent job of introducing Molly and SilasContinue reading “Review: London Lovers Series by Sierra Simone”

Review: Markham Hall Series by Sierra Simone

The Awakening of Ivy Leavold (Book 1) Here’s the old-school Gothic erotic romance I expected when I started Simone’s Thornchapel series! An innocent young woman finds herself helpless and adrift in a new home, at the mercy of a mysterious and figure who instantly captivates her attention. Despite Simone’s effortless narrative that elevates the interactionsContinue reading “Review: Markham Hall Series by Sierra Simone”

Review: Two Rogues Make a Right (Seducing the Sedgwicks #3) by Cat Sebastian

Read my review of Seducing the Sedgwicks book 1, It Takes Two to Tumble. Read my review of Seducing the Sedgwicks book 2, A Gentleman Never Keeps Score. Some romance is full of angst and pain and hardship before a happily ever after. And some romance is full of all of those things in theContinue reading “Review: Two Rogues Make a Right (Seducing the Sedgwicks #3) by Cat Sebastian”

Review: Secrets of Charlotte Street Series by Scarlett Peckham

The Duke I Tempted (Book 1) The time period of this book was a bit earlier than the historical romance I’ve been reading, but I’m so pleased I took a chance on it anyway. Westmead and Poppy stole my heart, separately and then together. The arc of their relationship surprised me at every turn, butContinue reading “Review: Secrets of Charlotte Street Series by Scarlett Peckham”

Review: The Threefold Tie by Aster Glenn Gray

This short novel is perfect for anyone looking for a historical romance with lovely character development and interaction. I thoroughly enjoyed each of these characters, individually and together. The point-of-view switches and overlapping timelines show the perspective of each lead and their developing arcs to excellent effect. This book is a quick read that doesn’tContinue reading “Review: The Threefold Tie by Aster Glenn Gray”
