Book Spotlight & Review: Red and Black by Nancy O’Toole Meservier

Next Monday is a book birthday for one of my fellow bloggers at Speculative Chic, but I couldn’t wait any longer! I was thrilled to receive an advanced electronic copy of this debut novel. This was a great, fun read that will appeal to adult and young adult readers alike, with just enough superhero anticsContinue reading “Book Spotlight & Review: Red and Black by Nancy O’Toole Meservier”

Review: A Gentleman Never Keeps Score (Seducing the Sedgwicks #2) by Cat Sebastian

I guess I’m a bit lucky coming to this book as a reader who doesn’t have a lot of experience with “Regency” romances. To me, this is merely an unexpected romance set in an historical era, so I was a lot more forgiving of aspects of the plot that seemed to bother other readers basedContinue reading “Review: A Gentleman Never Keeps Score (Seducing the Sedgwicks #2) by Cat Sebastian”

Author Interview with Rachell Nichole

The publishing industry can be a roller coaster, and often, its up to authors to make the most of it. To help Rachell Nichole ride the high of her latest release, I came up with some fun and sexy questions that highlight A Love Affair in Las Vegas. ABOUT THE BOOK Dawn Jansen has only everContinue reading “Author Interview with Rachell Nichole”

Review: The Boogeyman’s Intern by Matt Betts

Disclaimer: The author is a friend, and I reviewed this novel as part of the publication process. I look forward to purchasing a hardcopy version of my own. This was a weird book set in an even weirder landscape. Betts proves that the supernatural creatures created as part of all human cultures are very similarContinue reading “Review: The Boogeyman’s Intern by Matt Betts”

Review: Dead Indian Wars (Damnation #2) by Clark Casey

Disclaimer: I received a free ebook from the author via Netgalley. This fast-paced sequel to Dawn in Damnation picks up mere moments after the first book ends. Like the first installment, it’s an easy read that flows well; every chapter brings a new character, a new incident, or a new puzzle. The narrator Tom continues toContinue reading “Review: Dead Indian Wars (Damnation #2) by Clark Casey”

Review: Syzygy by J.K. Ullrich

Disclaimer: I received an electronic version of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review. Even though the majority of the characters, including the two point of view characters, in this book are teenagers, this never feels like a young adult novel. Instead, it’s an intriguing look at two opposed post-apocalyptic societiesContinue reading “Review: Syzygy by J.K. Ullrich”

Review: Unmasked by the Marquess (Regency Impostors #1) by Cat Sebastian

The most interesting and appealing thing about this book is that it did not follow what I’ve come to realize is the traditional romance plot structure. I thought I knew exactly how this book was going to go. I was completely wrong, and I loved it all the more for it. 

Review: An Argumentation of Historians (Chronicles of St. Mary’s #9) by Jodi Taylor

Call me blasphemous, because I am a huge fan of this series…but I’m getting a bit bored with fighting Clive Ronan. I still enjoyed the hell out of this book, despite the slow start. One thing I did appreciate about it is seeing the evolution of St. Mary’s relationship with the Time Police. They’ll neverContinue reading “Review: An Argumentation of Historians (Chronicles of St. Mary’s #9) by Jodi Taylor”

Author Interview with Clark Casey

One of the best things about my job is the opportunity to read books I might otherwise never come across. Recently, I had the privilege of reading Clark Casey’s paranormal Western Dawn in Damnation. I enjoyed the book, so I furthered my goal of supporting indie authors by asking him for an interview! ABOUT THE BOOKContinue reading “Author Interview with Clark Casey”

Review: Origin (Robert Langdon #5) by Dan Brown

For all of the ridiculousness of Brown’s plots and my frustration with some of his writing style, I absolutely keep coming back to his books because when you remove everything I dislike, the rest is a personal guided tour of some amazing information about art, culture, and history.
