Review: Queen Takes Camelot

Image
Queen Takes Camelot by Joely Sue Burkhart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another Queen for the Good in a rapidly expanding world of vampires, queens and their knights. Ever the fan of Ms. Burkhart, when I learned she was going to start writing a spin off with a reinterpretation of the Arthurian legend, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. What I find interesting is Arthur is not the good guy in this story. And not surprisingly, one of my other favourite reinterpretation of King Arthur also showcases that history is re-written by the winner who is not always the good guy.

I have always been a fan of Guinevere. Seeing her in this version increases my adoration. Ms. Burkhart creates an intrigue plot of jealous, betrayal and... another woman. How exciting is that?! This little taste of what is to come only whets my appetite for the main story to get it on. I love this series and the world it sits in. Highly recommended to paranormal romance lovers who like a bit of kink and multiple men t…

Review: Safeword: Davenport

Safeword: Davenport by Candace Blevins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book the first time around. It blew me away back in June of 2012. It is interesting how six and a half years has changed me and how I read this book. This new edition is more polished in subtle ways and reminds me why I loved this book when I first read it. The story flows a bit smoother and surprisingly, the BDSM scenes are no longer as intense for me.

Make no mistakes, the BDSM in this story are intense. Ms. Blevins descriptions of how a scene flows is accurate and what I have seen and now experienced. Many of these scenes are considered edgeplay and do require both knowledge, practice and experience. I caution any new to BDSM reader using this as a how-to-manual. It is not. This is for readers to take a glimpse into the dark side. Ms. Blevins offers something better than cookies - out of your mind orgasmic nookie. For those who need a bit more spice to their kink, Ms. Blevins is one of the top go to author…

About If I Ever
Some ghosts refuse to stay buried . . .
Prophet and Tom have been through the wringer more times than they can count, both as partners in the field and in life. Yet despite it all, they’ve built something great together. But now they need to protect it again: Prophet’s old nemesis, John Morse, is back and threatening everything he loves.
Prophet is driven enough to take John down alone, and with a chance to do exactly that on the table, he runs with it, risking himself in the process. But trusting Tom to help him is so much more than mission critical.
It’s the final stand, and with Tom and his team behind him, Prophet’s in for the fight of his life. Then a figure from his past goes missing, and the consequence of an old mission rears its head. As complications and destruction mount all around them, getting out alive becomes the most important mission of their lives.

She's his to train...to punish...to break.



Five years ago, bombs destroyed the United States as we know it.

Ever since, Victoria’s been on her own: scavenging and fighting to survive. When Luca finds her, she's half dead and he may be her only hope to live.



Luca may have become hardened over the past five years, but he couldn't let a defenseless woman die on his watch.

He brings her back to his village to recover. The same village that hosts Fight Night: a lucrative women's cage match that he started to support the town.



As Victoria gains strength she begs Luca to allow her to join.

He agrees with conditions: she must accept his rules – and punishments – when she disobeys him.

Victoria quickly learns he wasn't kidding, but she’s surprised at how much the punishments turn her on. And it’s not long before the enigmatic Luca’s on her mind almost constantly.

About Perfect Match
Secrets can derail even the most powerful attraction.
Logger Sven Larson has never found a man worth publicly coming out of the closet for. But his family has other plans. As a thirtieth birthday gift, his mother hires the online dating service Perfect Match to find Sven the love of his life. To say Sven isn't thrilled is an understatement, but it's too late to cancel, and Jayden Calver arrives.
Perfect Match's success rate is unsurpassed, but they don't come by it honestly: if a client can't be matched, the agency uses a stand-in to fulfil their guarantee and protect their profit.
Tough luck has left Jayden in debt, and playing Perfect Match's deceptive game is his only option. So he travels — sparkling toenails and all — to a remote camp deep in the mountains to meet Sven Larson and pretend to be his perfect match for a few days.
Sparks fly on first contact. But as the two men get closer, Sven grows more and more suspicious of Jayden, and Jayde…

Review: Untouchable

Image
Untouchable by Jayne Ann Krentz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Highly satisfying end to this romantic suspense trilogy! The third foster brother, Jack Lancaster is up front and center with his story. I loved Jack. Jack, like his foster brothers, is an honourable man with a traumatizing past. What I loved most about Jack is how impressive his minds works. The constant answers with probability both amused and charmed me. His unique way to figure out issues through lucid dreaming appeals to me. As a person who both lucid dreams and at times solves issues through dreaming, I can understand Jack's method. I wish I was able to do as much as Jack because his brain power is at a much higher level. To match Jack's character, Ms. Krentz gives us Winter Meadows.

Winter may come across as a woo-woo free age fruit loop, but that would be inaccurate. Winter's history as it unfolds is an equality tragic one. My heart breaks for children whose parents pass away and there are no plans in place to…

Review: Evidence of Desire

Image
Evidence of Desire by Lexi Blake
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

Just when I think Ms. Blake can't move me any more, she breaks out a tear jerker with this latest book. I loved this story and within the first few minutes, I'm tearing up. This is a second in a spin off series and it is glorious. For those who are starting out with this book, it's recommended to read the first book to understand the backstory of a couple of secondary characters. Still, this book can be read as a standalone.

Moving through this law firm, David is up for his love story. I liked David in the first book. Learning about his fears and how he became a lawyer is impressive. What I liked about his situation is how applicable it is in today's sports climate. Ms. Blake brings this touchy subject up front and center. She shows both sides and with compassion. She plays out some what if scenarios with heart breaking consequences. This plot driven story is filled with compassion and heart. Love it.
