The Importance of Being Alice by Katie MacAlister

The Importance of Being Alice is a cute, sometimes humorous romance and the first of the Ainslie Brothers series by Katie MacAlister. Of course, I was immediately drawn to this by the promise of brothers. You all know by now this is a weakness of mine. While not without issues, The Importance of Being Alice was a fluffy romance with a castle, and interesting secondary characters.

Seventh Grave and No Body by Darynda Jones

I pre-ordered Seventh Grave and No Body the seventh book in the hilariously awesome Charley Davidson series and began reading it on release day. My intention as always was to savoir it. *hangs head* Yeah, as if. I came up for air at about 50%. My sides hurt from giggling and my nether parts from swooning over Reyes. I than decided a nap would allow me to savior it longer. *dreams of Reyes, yeah I can so handle that* Forty-five minutes later, I was back in the story and soon in tears because it was over. OVER. Now I have to wait until May 2015.*sobs* Oh, the cruelty of it all! Despite the frustration of having to wait for more answers, and more time with this motley crew of characters that I abso-friggin-loutely adored Seventh Grave and No Body was brilliant. Brilliant I tell you.

Tamed by Emma Chase

Can I just have a moment to fan girl? Squeeeee! Ok, I feel more in control. I am in love with this author and series. The third in the Tangled series by Emma Chase, Tamed gives us yet another male perspective and I abso-friggin-lout-ly love the way Chase fleshes out her characters. They are snarky, genuine, raw and make me giggle: snort like nobody’s business!

Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase

Readers have hailed Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase a favorite. It is the third book in the Scoundrels series and can be read as a standalone. I made a request to review the new audio release after some gentle persuasion by audio junkie pal, Loupe @ Hot Listens. I loved these characters and their wickedly delicious banter. I laughed, swooned and cannot wait to listen to it repeatedly. It has earned a place in my top ten reads.

The Sum of All Kisses by Julia Quinn

I giggled, sighed and thoroughly enjoyed The Sum of All Kisses, the latest installment of the Smythe-Smith Quartet series by Julia Quinn. Unique, quirky characters, wicked banter and meddling souls abound in this warm historical romance. Each of the books can be read as a standalone, but each is worth a read. Mini review: Humorous, romantic, and sweet. Quinn swept me up, and I thoroughly enjoyed the ride.

The Trouble with Christmas by Debbie Mason

The Trouble with Christmas is the first in a new series by Debbie Mason called Christmas, Colorado and already I want to back my bags and move there. Christmas, was delightful with its busy bodies, quaint shops and a bar called the Penalty Box.. The tale was romantic, with humor, lessons and of course the spirit of Christmas. Mini review: humor, snowflakes, a little drama and romance made this a sweet afternoon read by the fire.

Man Made Boy by Jon Skovron

Man Made Boy by Jon Skovron is a retelling of the classic Frankenstein featuring Frankenstein and the Bride’s son Frank. Skovron introduces a mix of genres in this paranormal romance, from cyberpunk to fantasy. At its heart, it is a coming of age story, with life lessons and first experiences. Mini review: quirky, intriguing and for the young at heart.
