August is Read-A-Romance Month and a few of my fellow #XOxperts* and I are celebrating the Joy of Romance. A special thanks to Victoria @ Arts Books & Coffee who has mad social skills and coördinated everything. Check out my review of Sustained by Emma Chase. This is the second book in her new Legal Briefs series but it works as a standalone. I adore Chases’ writing. Her character Drew Evans from the Tangled series is one of my favorite bad boys but, I might just cheat on him with Jake Becker. Enjoy, enter the giveaways and then be sure and visit the other stops.
Shadows Strike was a stellar addition to the Immortal Guardians series by Dianne Duvall. Heat, intense action scenes and strong characters had me completely immersed in this world. Shadows Strike is the sixth novel in the Immortal Guardians series and can work as a standalone, although there is an overall story ARC between good and evil. I started this series with the fourth book and will eventually start at the beginning. *glares at TBR pile*
Heart-warming, suspense and a romance laced with banter, tender moments and a dash of heat Her Lucky Cowboy by Jennifer Ryan had me lost within its pages. I am in love with the Montana Men series. Big Sky country, sexy cowboys and strong woman with a touch of suspense make these contemporary romances delicious. Her Lucky Cowboy is the third book in the series and one of my favorites to date. While this is part of a series feel free to jump right in as each book deals with a new couple.
The novella Sideswiped by Kim Harrison introduces us to the characters and world of her new series the Peri Reed Chronicles. This science fiction suspense thriller sheds light on the concept of drafting. A small percentage of the population has the ability to move back briefly in time. Other humans can act as an anchor preventing the drafter from becoming trapped.
Have I got a yummy recipe and book recommendation for you today! The Conquering Dark by Clay & Susan Griffith is the third book in the Victorian-era urban fantasy Crown & Key. Today’s recipe inspired by the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling and my recent trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure in Orlando Florida. Grab a cup of Earl of Grey and a Jammie Dodger and enjoy!
Tough Love is the third book in Lori Foster’s Ultimate series and after the proposal Vanity Backer made Stack “The Wolf” Hannigan in Holding Strong, I have been anxious for their story. Foster delivered and their romance was hot, sweet, humorous and filled with delicious banter and teasing.
Welcome to Coffee Pot Reviews! These are short and sweet reviews done in the length of time it takes my coffee pot to brew! I have the first two books in the Brightwater series by Lia Riley to share today. Last First Kiss & Right Wrong Guy are set in Brightwater, California a rural farm community on the brink of change. If you like small-town, contemporary romances with a touch of heat and a whole lot of sweet stick around. Grab a cup of iced mocha coffee and enjoy…..
Black-Eyed Susans by Julia Heaberlin was an intense, fascinating psychological thriller with twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. Told in alternating chapters in the past and present this suspenseful story held me in its web.
I was drawn to Made For Us by Samantha Chase because I have a weakness for series involving brothers and small-towns. This is the first book in the Shaughnessy Brothers series and I was excited to dive in. While I had issues with the characters and angst, Chase managed to make me smile.
Kate SeRine is an author whose books I enjoy. Her characters are fleshed out and the romances are filled with the snark, heat and tenderness all served with a suspenseful plot that keeps me engaged. When she announced her newest series I knew I had to share. Stop at Nothing the first in her new Protect and Serve series releasing in November. I am looking forward to this romantic suspense series and plan to share a review …
