Book Review: Sherwood by Sierra Simone

At the time this blog post is published, this novella is available for free. Simone’s New Camelot series wrecked me as a reader in all the best ways, often leaving me in tears and leading to some virtual flailing at a fellow fan via text. The journey was worth every bit of the angst, andContinue reading “Book Review: Sherwood by Sierra Simone”

Book Review: Priest Series by Sierra Simone

This post includes reviews of the books in the Priest series: Priest (#1) Sinner (#2) Saint (#3) Priest (Priest #1) I enjoyed this book a lot more when I stopped thinking about it as a romance. I have very little patience for the religious angst of white guys, especially when it involves a religion withContinue reading “Book Review: Priest Series by Sierra Simone”

Review: “Sanguine” by Sierra Simone

Simone packs a wallop into two short chapters in this excellent paranormal romance story. It appears pretty self-explanatory on the surface: vampire and priest meet, and sexy shenanigans ensue. However, Simone puts her own twist on how vampires work, the priest is not quite a priest, and the shenanigans are surprisingly humorous and sweet (alongContinue reading “Review: “Sanguine” by Sierra Simone”

Review: Door of Bruises (Thornchapel #4) by Sierra Simone

Read my reviews of the previous Thornchapel books: A Lesson in Thorns Feast of Sparks Harvest of Sighs I waited six months for the finale of this fantastic series, and every moment was worth it. Simone continues to raise the stakes in both reality and the bits of fantasy elements that seep into this world,Continue reading “Review: Door of Bruises (Thornchapel #4) by Sierra Simone”

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: “American Squire” (New Camelot #5) by Sierra Simone

This short story ties together the worlds of New Camelot and Thornchapel by following a former White House assistant on a mysterious errand to England. The actual interactions portrayed between Ryan and Sidney are both sexy and sweet, as appropriate, and I’d happily read more about their burgeoning relationship. What elevates this story from sexyContinue reading “Review: “American Squire” (New Camelot #5) by Sierra Simone”

Review: Cards of Love: The Moon (New Camelot #4) by Sierra Simone

This short and sexy follow-up to the New Camelot trilogy does much to explain Merlin’s role in the whole situation. It portrays two very different relationships across time in a way that also shows off how Simone uses point-of-view to amplify her storytelling. I do have some questions about the off-screen events that bring MerlinContinue reading “Review: Cards of Love: The Moon (New Camelot #4) by Sierra Simone”

Review: American King (New Camelot #3) by Sierra Simone

I honestly did not expect this book to affect me as much as it did. I tore through it in a single afternoon, enjoying the spring air on my front porch, and had to go inside for fresh tissues twice. At about the 90% mark, I texted a friend to rage about what I assumedContinue reading “Review: American King (New Camelot #3) by Sierra Simone”

Review: Harvest of Sighs (Thornchapel #3) by Sierra Simone

All books have a dark moment, right before things get better. This book, the third in the Thornchapel series, ends in the ultimate dark moment. Relationships were not great during this book. They were intense and hopeful and painful and tragic, making me fall in love with each of the characters. And now so manyContinue reading “Review: Harvest of Sighs (Thornchapel #3) by Sierra Simone”
