The Truth About Lord Stoneville by Sabrina Jeffries

One of my favorite go-to-feel-good genres is historical fiction. It can be a romance or a mystery, I love them all. When Danielle @Bookwhore shared The Truth about Lord Stoneville on her blog, I knew this was the perfect series for me. I adore series; in fact I am an addict. My favorite are the type that can also be read as standalone. They usually involve one family or a group of friends and each tale tells one character’s story.

Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke’s Heart by Sarah MacLean

Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke’s Heart is the final book in the Love by Numbers trilogy by author Sarah MacLean. After devouring the first two books (you can click on links to those reviews at the end of this post) I was excited to begin this one. McLean didn’t disappoint me, as she delivered another humorous romance with a headstrong heroine. I quickly consumed this while on vacation and found it to be delightful.

At Grave’s End by Jeaniene Frost

At Grave’s End is the third book in the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost and perhaps one of my personal favorites so far. While Frost delivers plenty of action she also shares the emotional side of Cat and Bones relationship. I consumed this in a single afternoon and again questioned why I have let these books sit in my TBR pile for so long. I will be remedying that by reading one a month until I am caught up. It is written and so it shall be done. (hehehe)

Embraced by Blood by Laurie London

Embraced by Blood is the second novel in Laurie London’s Sweetblood series. I first got into this series when Laurie asked me to review the third book in the series and I absolutely loved it. While reading it, I purchased books one and two for my Nook Tablet. Above you will see the links to both of those reviews. London’s books have some key elements that I love in paranormal romances; suspense, an awesome plot and swoon worthy heroes. All of her books can be read as standalone since each deal with a particular couple. To fully appreciate the fight against the Darkbloods, I recommend reading them in order.

Angel Condemned by Mary Stanton

Angel Condemned by Mary Stanton is the fifth in a cozy paranormal mystery series called Beaufort and Company. In this installment we have an ancient artifact that may be a key to one of the gates of hell, a murder and a case that can be linked back to Brianna’s mother Leah. This suspenseful novel was delightful and I loved re-visiting all the unique and colorful characters.

The Taker by Alma Katsu

The Taker by Alma Katsu is a historical love story with supernatural elements and a dark underbelly. I read this novel for a book of the month selection on Goodreads. It had elements I expected and some that made me squeamish. Overall I enjoyed this strange and dark tale. Katsu is a talented writer and her writing style captivated me. Some of the subject matter made me uncomfortable and I found myself skimming through those scenes. Ordinarily I would have stopped reading, but I had this overwhelm need to know Lanore’s story.- that is the beauty of Katsu’s writing.
