Clara Claus by Alexandra Lanc - A REVIEW

Clara ClausClara Claus by Alexandra Lanc
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Alexandra Lanc has flipped the Christmas story around and told it from the viewpoint of none other than Jack Frost himself! What a terrific twist!

Jack is in trouble with the Winter usual. Only this time he will be expelled and lose his Immortality if he doesn't meet the challenge placed before him by Kris Kringle. This challenge is that he must fall in love with a human before sunrise on Christmas morning. Where in the world of Immortals...will Jack find a human to fall in love with? In walks Clara Claus....Santa's granddaughter. Only Jack isn't really interested in meeting the challenge...his only desire is to destroy Christmas...and he will use Clara to ends if necessary....or will he?

Even though Jack Frost is mean soul you can't help but fall in love with him and want to help him!

I loved the story and would really LOVE to see the sequel!!

Dangerous Master (Masters of Desire, Book 3)Dangerous Master by Tawny Taylor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In Dangerous Master, Tawny Taylor has done it again. She has written yet another deliciously HOT read with an equally delicious developed plot line and believable characters. This is not just another erotic novel. Ms. Taylor has devised a fully developed plot that weaves mystery and suspense to keep you turning pages.

Mandy Thompson is a Private Investigator that is known as "Bulldog" because she manages to dig beneath the surface and uncover secrets about other people. While working on a case, Mandy meets Master Zane Clark and finds herself revealing HER most intimate sexual fantasies while delving into the dark and dangerous passion. Mandy finds she is no longer in control and gives herself freely over to the passion and ecstasy that Master Zane can giver her.

Ms Taylor has crafted another erotic D/s novel but with an usual twist. I will not reveal the twist within this review because I feel that would be a spoiler and I don't give spoilers.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a well written read with mystery and suspense.

**WARNING** This novel is sexually explicit. Like I said in the first sentence...Dangerous a HOT read!!

Forbidden (The Guardian Chronicles, #1)Forbidden by Megan Curd
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

FORBIDDEN by Megan Curd was a fresh take on what seems to be a popular idea for writing books these days. Of course...who am I to complain about the books using the supernatural beings for characters....I TOTALLY love them!! However, Megan took the Angels & Demons idea to another level.

FORBIDDEN has so many different twists, it keeps you GLUED to your chair...right on the edge want NEEDING to know what is going to happen next.

Megan Curd has done an awesome job of spinning a story that gets the reader totally involved in the outcome.

Thank you Megan for allowing me to review your book. I have so enjoyed it!! I know what you are thinking...If I LOVED this book so much....why didn't I give it a 5-Star rating. I only give 5 Stars to books that provide me with some life altering experience.

Megan Curd provided for me a copy of her book FORBIDDEN free of charge for an honest review. Which is what you just got!!

Diary of a Vampeen by Christin Lovell - A REVIEW

Diary of a VampeenDiary of a Vampeen by Christin Lovell
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

In Diary of a Vampeen, Christin Lovell introduces us to another "Vampire" species. This particular species is part human...part vampire.

Lexi meets Kellan and they fall in love...actually they are "soul mates". Really a sixteen year old with a "soul mate". Anyway, this seems to be a romance with vampire tendencies. We even have a vampire fight thrown in for good measure. Yes, a vampire called Kiera tries to kill Lexi after her transformation, but alas, Lexi...a new vampeen, wins that battle against a seasoned vampire.

Most of the antics and attitudes in this book really make you think "high school" and that is good since this is a young adult novel. However, there were quite a few grammatical errors that kept distracting me from the story, even though I tried very hard to ignore them.

While I wasn't totally happy with this novel, I did continue reading until it was finished. How else could I write a true review? I don't mean to totally trash this book. What I always say is read it yourself and see what you think.

Wish on the Moon by Karen Rose Smith - A REVIEW

Wish On The MoonWish On The Moon by Karen Rose Smith
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Wish on the Moon is the first book I've read by Karen Rose Smith and while I did like the story line, there was way too much antagonism/sexual tension between Laura and Mitch for it to be a believable story for me.

Laura Applegate Sanders is the estranged daughter of Ray Applegate a very successful jeweler. Mitch Riley has been Ray's partner for a few years when Ray need cardiac bypass surgery. Mitch goes and finds Laura and shows up on her doorstep to try and get her to come back to see her father.

Laura hasn't seen her father in 6 years when he disowned her because she married Doug Sanders, a man her father thought was just after the money she could supply him because he was an artist with no job and no prospects for one.

Mitch arrives at Laura's door with preconceived ideas about why Ray hasn't seen his daughter and he believed it was because Laura was a wild child and wanted her way and just left and never looked back. Boy...does Mitch have a lot to learn about the day Laura left her father's house.

Almost immediately Mitch feels some attraction for Laura and that tension builds as he gets to know more about her.

Does the boy get the girl? You will have to read the book to find that out....I don't give out spoilers in my reviews.

Why did I only give this book 3 stars if I liked it...and obviously I did like something about it because I took the time to finish the book and write this review. However, while the characters are pretty believable for me, the fact that two people could meet and almost instantaneously have a strong attraction for one another is just really difficult for me hold on to.

Go ahead and read the book....maybe you are more romantic than I am and will like the book more than I did!!

Vampire Assassin (Jane)Vampire Assassin by Samantha Warren
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

In Vampire Assassin, Samantha Warren begins the story by talking about some man named Bob and giving a complete description of him. It happens that the narrator of this book is a vampire that hires herself out as an assassin and her target is this Bob fellow, who by all accounts is a cheating, scumbag. Apparently the wife has arranged in some way to have the assassin take care of Bob and he is found dead just as planned by the wife.

OK...I like vampire novels pretty well. But this one felt very stilted. The language is way too conversational. At some points, the author is even explaining why she said or did something. Vampire Assassin is billed as a short novella....but it is more like a serial read and this one installment is like maybe the first 3 or 4 chapters.

Lets just say, I did not enjoy the story line or the writing. Just my own opinion.

This book was recommended to me by a as you can see some people do like the story line.

MISTRESS by MARRIAGE by Maggie Robinson

Mistress by Marriage (Courtesan Court, #3)Mistress by Marriage by Maggie Robinson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In Mistress by Marriage, Maggie Robinson put the sizzle on the page while allowing the reader to use their imagination. I truly enjoyed the struggle between Baron Edward Christie and his wife of 6 years, Caroline Parker Christie.

Baron Christie has a reputation of being reserved and calm. He takes this reputation to extremes in all situations except with his red-headed wife, Caroline. She stirs irresistible lust in Christie's body that he can't control.

Christie marries Caroline by special license only a week after they had met at a ball held by Lady Huntington. Within a year of that marriage he surprises Caroline on her birthday and finds her in a compromising situation with an old friend, Andrew Rossiter. Because of her supposed indiscretion, he moves her into a "love nest" house on Jane Street, where many of the influential ton kept their mistresses. Christie then visits Caroline every June 14 for sex and to inflict more anger on Caroline. The passion in this relationship flows both ways. Neither can control themselves.

Christie believes that Caroline committed adultery and after five years has decided he will petition for a divorce. Caroline is prepared for this news and believes it is for the best since they can't seem to live together or stay away from one another.

While this is mainly a romance, there is some suspense and mystery woven throughout the plot which only adds to the story line. The characters seem to react in believable ways in the many situations they are put into.

In my opinion, this is a fabulously written suspenseful, mystery romance. I would definitely recommend it as a read for anyone that likes romance.

Mistress by Marriage by Maggie Robinson was provided free of charge by Kensington Publishing for an honest review.

In the Barrister’s Chambers (Regency Barrister, #1)In the Barrister’s Chambers by Tina Gabrielle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tina Gabrielle has created convincing three dimensional characters in her book In the Barrister's Chambers. The characters speak, act and seem to feel the way a real person would in a similar situation. The plot has many twists and turns that keep you riveted to your seat and turning pages to see what happens next.

Lady Evelyn Darlington loves the law. After all she was raised by her widowed father who was a professor at Inns of Court that took pupils under his wing for tutelage. One such pupil was Jack Harding. Lady Evelyn had been entranced by Jack Harding even as a child.

Jack Harding is now a successful barrister and Lady Evelyn requires his services for her soon to be betrothed who has been accused of murder. After convincing Harding to accept the case, Lady Evelyn manages to worm her way into the investigation at every turn.

Because I don't believe in giving out spoilers, I will not talk about the rest of the book....but know it is a fabulous read. It does contain some well written areas that firmly sizzle on the page.

In the Barrister's Chamber is an excellent read. It contains romance, intrigue, mystery, and some revenge. You can't go wrong reading this one.

Kensington Publishing provided this book free of charge for an honest review.

RAW DESIRE by Kate Pearce - A REVIEW

Raw DesireRaw Desire by Kate Pearce
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kate Pearce has taken "HOT" to a whole new level with RAW DESIRE. From the first page to the last it is full of riveting, STEAMY sexual scenes intertwined with mystery and suspense.

Ally Kendall has returned to her hometown to sell her mother's house. Ally had left her hometown in disgrace years ago and knew she wouldn't have an easy time returning. Rob Ward, her old boyfriend, who she betrayed with his best friend are both in town and she runs into them frequently. The sexual tension between the three is extraordinary.

RAW DESIRE is infused with BDSM and Gay/Lesbian scenes that are sexually explicit. While this is not necessarily the type of book I normally read, I must say that I did enjoy the main story plot. It was strong and well written. The characters were three dimensional and easily believable.

If you are looking for a HOT read...this is one to grab.

Haunted on Bourbon Street by Deanna Chase - A Review

Haunted on Bourbon Street: A Jade Calhoun NovelHaunted on Bourbon Street: A Jade Calhoun Novel by Deanna Chase
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In Haunted on Bourbon Street, Deanna Chase spins a very "edge of your seat" supernatural thriller with a little romance thrown in for good measure.

This novel has plenty supernatural aspects....empaths, witches, low-level angels, and of course....ghosts...and plenty of them. Jade, the artistic empath is the main character in the book. She is an empath and right away upon moving to her new home in the French Quarter in Louisiana, she manages to get a ghost to attach himself to her...without her knowledge, of course. She begins to have very sensual dreams that include a man, she has dubbed as "Mr. Sexy", and it turns out he is a ghost.

Jade is very attracted to her landlord, who is also the owner of the strip club next door to the coffee shop where she works for Pyper. The ghost that has attached himself to Jade is becoming increasingly jealous of the attentions that Jade is receiving from Kane, her landlord. As the book progresses we find out why. It turns out that Jade isn't the only person haunted by a ghost...Pyper has her own ghost attachment....except that he is an evil ghost and causes her much pain and anguish.

This is the first book in this series and I, personally, cannot wait until the next book comes out....I will definitely be sure to read it....I can't wait!
