Ok, so I finished reading Lover Enshrined. I had to sit on the floor and read it – because I kept falling out of my chair! It’s amazing, wonderful, thoughtful, provoking and takes you on an unknown journey that keeps you turning the pages until the last page; finally, incredibly satisfied and breathlessly wanting to know more. If I wasn’t falling out of my chair I was reaching for the tissue box because there were just as many moments that were extremely poignant and heart wrenching. It’s the kind of book that ruins you for other books for many days after because the characters are still playing around inside your head. The kind of book you’ll know you’ll be re-reading –

Gibson_datereview_3 Not Another Bad Date by Rachel Gibson

Reviewed By Kati Dancy

When I open a Rachel Gibson novel, I know what I’m getting, fun, breezy romances with intelligent, humorous heroines and smoking hot heroes. Not Another Bad Date is a perfect example.

Devon Hamilton-Zemaitis is having a very bad day. You see, she’s just been killed by a garbage truck, and when she finally gets a chance to see someone about her situation, she is told that while she’s not being sent straight to hell, she’s also not being sent to heaven. Instead, she’ll have to go to a kind of purgatory, where she’ll need to do some good in order to earn her way into heaven. She is outraged! Wasn’t she a model mother? Sure, she was maybe a …

Graves_tall Tall Tales and Wedding Veils by Jane Graves

Reviewed by PJ Ausdenmore

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

I love discovering new authors, especially when they arrive on my doorstep with a backlist just waiting to be glommed. I was not familiar with Jane Graves so when I picked up a copy of her latest contemporary romance, TALL TALES AND WEDDING VEILS, I wondered if it was a debut book. Imagine my surprise, and delight, to discover that it is actually the 16th book published by this six-time RITA finalist.

Heather Montgomery is 29, attractive in an understated way, responsible, a successful accountant and, to her mother’s ever-growing despair, single. Here she is, approaching her 30th birthday without a single prospect in sight, suffering through yet another …

Color me surprised! Maria and I were surfing the net when we came across an article that said you can now download romance novels on your cell phone. Hello? Can you hear me now? I’m of 2 minds

cellhand12.jpgOn One Hand:
Yeah, I’ve gotten spoiled and I want my information now! If I have to wait more than 4 seconds for an email to download, well, I’m hitting delete. If I have to watch TV with commercials instead of fast forwarding through TiVo, well, I’m changing the channel. If I call a phone number and I get a busy signal, I’m, WTH, these people should join the 21st Century already. So yeah, I’m all about Right Now!

I’m never one to travel without a book. I mean, no book? …

Logan Grey is a man who is haunted by the tragedies of his past. Though newspapers have dubbed him the “luckiest man in Texas” because of his mysterious ability to sense, and ward off trouble before it occurs, Logan knows his luck is anything but good. At the age of five he lost his entire family in a flash flood and was raised in an orphaned children’s home. As a range detective, Logan has survived over 30 gunfights and brought many notorious outlaws to justice but he hasn’t always worn the white hat and he hasn’t always been lucky. He did things in his youth that he sorely regrets, things for which innocents paid the price, things that have shaped the solitary man he’s become. Tall, …

Reviewed by Maria Lokken

The Hallow is the second book in the three book series of the Circle of Seven Trilogy. I read the first book Blood Brothers, and personally couldn’t wait for the second in the series to be released. I know, I know, authors don’t write books in a week or even in a couple of months – so along with a few million other people, I anxiously awaited this release and ran out and purchased it the minute it hit the shelves.

So what did I think? Here’s what – Nora can write characters. That is one of the reasons I love reading her books. This book unfolded for me, page by page, and I could see each character, feel …
