Closer Than You Think by Karen Rose is the first book in the Cincinnati series and book sixteen in the Romantic Suspense series. Each of the book offers an intense FBI crime thriller, with a side dish of romance. Rose delivered a nail-biting serial killer thriller that will keep you turning the pages.
Lover Revealed by J.R. Ward is the fourth book in the paranormal romance series the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Each time I open one of these books, I quickly become lost in its characters and world. While Lover Revealed had a calmer tone to it, Ward still packed plenty of punch.
Away from the Dark is the second book in The Light duology by author Aleatha Romig. Once again I chose to listen to this thriller on audio. Brilliant, suspenseful and engaging this romantic suspense thrusts us back into the cult known as the Light.
When It Hits The Fan is the debut novel of author, Victoria Colotta. It shares the story of Camilla Valentini a young New Yorker with a plan. That is until she has the rug pulled out from beneath her and has to start redefining herself. Realistic, heartwarming and filled with friends and characters I would love to learn more about, this standalone novel delivered character growth, discovery and a touch of romance.
When All the Girls Have Gone is a standalone romantic suspense by Jayne Anne Krentz. I am a long time fan and read both her novels and those penned by her pseudonyms Jayne Castle and Amanda Quick. While I enjoyed this murder mystery that involves a 15-year-old rape case, it didn’t quite capture me like most Krentz books.
Wyvern’s Mate by Deborah Cooke is the first in her new paranormal romance series, The Dragons of Incendium. A snarky dragon-shifter princess, a prophecy, and a Mindbender soon had me listening to the beautiful voice of narrator Saskia Maarleveld in this off planet tale.
I was drawn to the Bachelor Auction by Rachel Van Dyken the first in the Bachelors of Arizona series because of its Cinderella angle. After all, everyone wants Cinderella to get her happily ever after. Toss in some bachelor brothers and Kimberly’s a happy reader. Siblings, snark, farm animals and a male arse made this retelling a quick, fun, and entertaining romance.
One Snowy Night is a novella in the Heartbreaker Bay series by Jill Shalvis. While this can be read as a standalone, it shares the romance of Rory Andrews and Max Stranton. It is one that has been building in the first two novels of this series. Travels home for Christmas are complicated by a snow storm, a dog, and unresolved issues. Curl up with some cocoa as this couple resolves their issues in this friends to lovers romance.
Today I am delighted to share my mini review of Boots and Bedlam, the third book in the Sweeney Sisters series by Ashley Farley. Ashley is here today with a holiday guest post as we all take part in the HoHoHoRAT. Grab a cup of cocoa and enjoy!
