Review: “A Case of Spirits” (A Charm of Magpies short) by K.J. Charles

This short story was included in my Kindle edition of A Case of Possession (A Charm of Magpies #2). This delightful short story doesn’t add much to the interpersonal relationship between Lord Crane and Stephen Day, but it does show how Crane and his manservant Merrick have become intricately linked with Day’s world of magician justiciars.Continue reading “Review: “A Case of Spirits” (A Charm of Magpies short) by K.J.

Review: A Case of Possession (A Charm of Magpies #2) by K.J. Charles

This was not a long novel, but I think I would have devoured it just as quickly had it been twice the length. I’ve decided that I adore Lord Crane. Like any true romantic hero, he has looks, brains, and money. But his personality, lack of regard for polite society, and familiarity with the worldContinue reading “Review: A Case of Possession (A Charm of Magpies #2) by K.J. Charles”

Review: The Soldier’s Scoundrel (Turner Series #1) by Cat Sebastian

I’m starting to see the appeal of romances, especially the ones where a happily ever is guaranteed. I don’t always like the emotional angst characters have to go through to get there, and I’ve discovered that I’m not a huge fan of the “you’re better off without me” trope (it hits a bit close toContinue reading “Review: The Soldier’s Scoundrel (Turner Series #1) by Cat Sebastian”

Review: The Magpie Lord (A Charm of Magpies #1) by K.J. Charles

Now that I’ve discovered a newfound love for queer historical romance, it was really only a matter of time before I made the jump to the urban fantasy variety. This novel was an excellent introductory choice that I devoured in the space of one airport wait + flight to Florida, and I had to resistContinue reading “Review: The Magpie Lord (A Charm of Magpies #1) by K.J.

Review: The Lawrence Browne Affair (Turner Series #2) by Cat Sebastian

A break from the daily routine in the form of a business trip to Seattle for the day job meant a break in my regular reading habits. Ages ago, my favorite contemporary romance author (okay, Anna Zabo is really the only contemporary romance author I really read) noted that a novel by one of theirContinue reading “Review: The Lawrence Browne Affair (Turner Series #2) by Cat Sebastian”

Review: DAILY GRIND (Takeover #4) by Anna Zabo

Disclaimer: I consider the author a friend and have promoted her projects on my blog. However, I purchased this ebook for full price. This novel was sweeter than the others in the series, but certainly no less hot for it. Brian and Rob go through a much more traditional meet-cute and love story, with theContinue reading “Review: DAILY GRIND (Takeover #4) by Anna Zabo”

Review: DUE DILIGENCE (Takeover #3) by Anna Zabo

Disclaimer: I consider the author a friend and have promoted her projects on my blog. However, I purchased this ebook for full price. This next novel ties into the Takeover series by featuring one of the engineers in Sam’s new consulting firm. While it was lovely to be reunited with Eli as a secondary character,Continue reading “Review: DUE DILIGENCE (Takeover #3) by Anna Zabo”

Author Interview with Jennifer Loring

Late last year I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing a novella for a holiday anthology, “No One on Earth” (part of Starstruck Holidays). Today, I’m happy to revisit this sexy speculative fiction story through an interview with author Jennifer Loring. ABOUT THE BOOK Jon, a psychic since childhood, has never felt at home inContinue reading “Author Interview with Jennifer Loring”

Review: JUST BUSINESS (Takeover #2) by Anna Zabo

Disclaimer: I consider the author a friend and have promoted her projects on my blog. However, I purchased this ebook for full price. Probably the best praise I can give this novel is that I meant to read a chapter or two before bed and when I looked up, my Kindle read 100% and itContinue reading “Review: JUST BUSINESS (Takeover #2) by Anna Zabo”

Review: TAKEOVER by Anna Zabo

Disclaimer: I consider the author a friend and have promoted her projects on my blog. However, I purchased this ebook for full price. I’ve had this book on my Kindle forever, and while had previously read and greatly enjoyed another novel by Zabo, I wasn’t sure whether my love of her urban fantasy would translateContinue reading “Review: TAKEOVER by Anna Zabo”
