Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre is the first in the Immortal Game trilogy. It is a paranormal tale with a side of romance; a little urban legend and a twisted creep factor that grabs your attention from the beginning.
I had a blast reading The Troublemaker Next Door the first novel in Marie Harte’s McCauley Brothers series and was delighted to get my hands on a copy of How To Handle a Heartbreaker. Ladies break out the hand fans because this tale is hot, touching and at times hilarious. The brothers are in rare form, we meet new characters and Brody Singer will melt your heart.
Thanks to Harlequin for sponsoring today’s book recommendation and giveaway. It’s Recipe & A Book Recommendation and today we have a delicious summer pasta salad and Little Mercies by Heather Gudenkauf. Little Mercies released on June 24, 2014. It is a powerful, riveting read and I will share my thoughts with you in October. It reminds us to value the ones we hold dear and the importance of “family time.” When my children were small we began a tradition on Friday evenings that we all have fond memories of. Today I will share ours with you, and maybe you can create nights like this with your family.
Hard Knocks was the perfect teaser to Lori Foster’s new Ultimate series featuring mixed martial arts. It will feature yummy alpha fighters and strong woman. This novella packed a punch as Gage “Savage” Ringer and Harper Gates take the next step in their relationship. I consumed the story in a single sitting and it left me eager for more…
I positively adore the Pushing the Limits series. Katie McGarry brings her characters to life and makes you feel. I was excited to get West’s story in Take Me On and once again McGarry delivered and I found myself wrapped up in West and Haley’s story.

Deep Summer is the first novel in the Plantation Trilogy originally published in 1946 and thanks to Open Road Media it is now available digitally. It takes us into the lives of Judith Sheramy who along with her family traveled down the Mississippi River from New England to begin life anew in Louisiana. Along the way they encounter Philip Larne, a charismatic slave smuggler who enchants young Judith and encourages her to come build an empire with him.
Through His Eyes by Deborah Camp was a fun paranormal murder mystery with a side dish of romance. The tale offered up plenty of paranormal woo-woo from ghost advisers to a psychic team that together could walk inside the mind of the killer and his victims. Fast paced with a snarky protagonist and drop dead gorgeous television psychic I quickly consumed Through His Eyes.
I was watching the movie International with my husband on a rainy, lazy Sunday afternoon. Our hero was interrogating a white collar criminal and told him, “You will never get away with this, people won’t believe your lies.” The man smirked and said, “The difference between life and fiction, is that fiction has to make sense.” This immediately made me ponder. Do we as readers demand more from our fictional stories then real life?
Romantic suspense is one of my favorite genres. I love the action, mystery and seeing two people thrown together in a high stress situation. Magic Moments by Angela Adams was a fun ride, filled with danger and a romance featuring one of my favorite tropes.
There is nothing like a good thriller to get your heart racing as the world slips away, and you become completely absorbed in the characters and their fates. Phantom Instinct by Meg Gardiner was one heck of a heart-stopping thriller with fleshed out characters and a climatic ending that had me holding my breath.
