One fiercely independent widow. One honest proposal. One unconventional game of love.
When Adeline, Dowager Countess of Wake, learns of her husband's sudden death, she realizes she's free. At last, she can do, go, and be as she pleases.

Review: Medusa's Heart

Image
Medusa's Heart by Joey W. Hill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book took me several years to get through it to my chagrin. I received this book a while back for a review. It took me several times to get into it. For some reason, I just didn't feel the pull. This is strange because usually for a Ms. Hill book, I'm riveted and sucked in from page one.

I am a lover of Greek Mythology too. I always felt Medusa received a raw deal. She was turned because of her spurning of a god intent on taking her. How is this fair? In this reinterpretation, Ms. Hill brings some interesting perspective. I liked the Medusa in this story even if it took me about 50% into the book before I actually started to get into the book. Why was it so difficult? I have a few ideas. First, let's start with what I liked.

I liked John Pierce. He is an admirable hero with a White Knight Syndrome. Usually, I avoid White Knight stories because the White Knight usually has a huge chip on their shoulder and just…

ON THE SUBJECT OF GRIFFONS by Lindsey Byrd

Image
Blurb
They’ll do anything to save their children’s lives, even if it means working together.
Kera Montgomery is still mourning the sudden death of her husband, Morpheus, when her youngest son falls victim to a mysterious plague. With no medicinal cure, Kera must travel to the Long Lakes, where magical griffons capable of healing any ailment reside.
As an heiress unused to grueling travel, Kera struggles with the immense emotional and physical strain of her journey—one made more complex when she crosses paths with her husband’s former mistress, Aurora. Aurora’s daughter is afflicted with the same plague as Kera’s son, so despite their incendiary history, the two women agree to set aside their differences and travel together.
The road is fraught with dangers, both living and dead. Each night, old battlegrounds reanimate with ghosts who don’t know they’ve died, and murderous wraiths hunt for stray travelers caught out after dark. If Kera, Aurora, and their children are going to survive, they…

Review: McGyver

Image
McGyver by Candace Blevins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Second chance romances give people hope that their first love may return to them. For some people, the first big "love" is unforgettable. Sometimes this is a good thing; sometimes this may be a bad thing. In McGyver, Ms. Blevins lets the reader decide if it was good or bad.

Iris is protected by an overbearing father. Most over protective ones can only make threats to those who may be a danger to their daughter. Iris's father is rich enough to deliver on his promises. No one is safe from his retribution. When Iris's youthful fancy is torn from her arms, her rebellion is a typical rich teenager's stance. She spirals down the path of sex, drugs and scandals. Nearly a decade later, Iris finally wises up to the fact that her behaviour isn't hurting anyone but herself.

Iris is interesting to me because the opening scene paints a picture of a woman who is doing her best to achieve her goals. She comes across as a yo…

Review: Assassin

Assassin by Cyndi Friberg
My rating: 3 of 5 stars



Terraforming on an uninhabited planet for war weary warriors sounds like a little piece of heaven. Looking forward to peace, it is a surprise to Outcasts warriors when they encounter the indigenous planet's original owners, the Sarronti. For those picking up this 4th book in the series, it is easy to dive into this world as a standalone. Ms. Friberg does a nice job of recapping highlights from previous books to provide a baseline and point of reference. Essentially, the Outcast group of males are considered invaders. The Sarronti are Fae-like creatures who want the invaders to leave. At least, at first glance it seems this simplistic. Instead, it is a bit more complicated as the reader learns more about each group.

This space opera is fun because there are no right or wrong factions. Instead there are competing factions with opposing views that make sense from their own perspective. The Sarronti are justified in their desire to be …

Review: The Rose

The Rose by Tiffany Reisz
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Is there anything Ms. Reisz can not write? I am blown away with this latest book by talents Ms. Reisz. Her writing is complex, intertwined with mythology and so thought provoking. About a few chapters into this book, I finally realize this is connected to the book, The Red. I confess that I never read the blurbs for Ms. Reisz's books. I go in totally cold and just enjoy the ride. This ride is indescribable and needs to be experienced first hand.

As a lover of Greek mythology, this story hit all of my happy buttons. The erotica based on fantasies come to life in a virtual reality-esque manner is my dream come true. Where is this special rose cup of Eros? I would love to take a little sip and be transported into one of my darker fantasies. Ms. Reisz is an author for a specific group of readers. Readers who like their boundaries pushed. Readers who get off on intellectual stimulation. Readers who enjoy layering of stories upon myths. …

About Running on Empty
After years of running wild, Linc might’ve finally run out of road.
After a brutal capture at the hands of the Heathens Motorcycle Club, Linc is just trying to heal, mentally and physically. But he’s got men in his life who are complicating everything. There’s Mercy—a Havoc MC biker and the man he is falling fast for—plus an undercover ATF agent and a rogue Havoc member.
But Mercy's keeping him at arm’s length, and Linc is spinning. In an attempt to regain his equilibrium, he heads to the bar where he first met Mercy. Night after night, he escapes Havoc bonds and continues down his merry path of mayhem . . . mainly in the hopes that Mercy will give chase.
Since Linc’s capture by his old MC, Mercy's been dealing with the fallout of his guilt. He’s trying to give Linc space and still watch over him—all without Linc’s knowledge. But with Linc’s old job calling and a threat to Havoc MC heating up, can they make their way back together?
