New Beginnings by Janet Olson

This was a strange one, caused in part by the difference in culture between the UK and the US. I can’t imagine any situation where a British family would immediately send a pregnant child to a third world country as a punishment for getting pregnant, AND expect her to give birth where health care isContinue reading “New Beginnings by Janet Olson”

The Thousand Year Divide by Catrin Russell (The Light of Darkness #6)

Every so often a series comes along which is so good, you are left without words. Still, I will try, as this series deserves all the words I can give to it. When I began with Power of Conviction (see my review here,) I said it was a great start to a promising series. ThisContinue reading “The Thousand Year Divide by Catrin Russell (The Light of Darkness #6)”

New Year, New… Bang?

I didn’t choose this title, but more about that in a moment. First I wanted to wish you all a Happy 2022, and let’s hope it’s a better year for all. This is where I awkwardly segue into … “and what better way to start it off than discovering a new book boyfriend?” I triedContinue reading “New Year, New… Bang?”

Review – Just Jonathan by Donna Scuvotti

This was a new genre for me, a cosy murder mystery book, although to be honest, it isn’t that cosy. Compared to some of the stuff I read, I guess it is but don’t be fooled. There are some tough issues being played out here. Jonathan is a thirteen-year-old boy dealing with the death ofContinue reading “Review – Just Jonathan by Donna Scuvotti”

A Vampire for Christmas by Tirza Schaefer

Well, I can imagine the vampire purists might be up in arms about this fresh take on the hot vampire/swooning chick trope. Sienna is one bold woman. After exploring the dungeon in the castle she has bought (with a fortune from a dead relative) she discovers a shrivelled carcass behind a previously locked door. AfterContinue reading “A Vampire for Christmas by Tirza Schaefer”

Diamonds & Pearls

Following on from Christmas Stockings, this is just a fun scenario of Richard and Tino’s Christmas morning. What do you get the man who has everything? This is smutty smut… Tino lay in their wide bed, watching Richard light the wood burner. His man looked adorable in the red tartan lounge pants Tino had chosenContinue reading “Diamonds & Pearls”

Christmas Stockings

The following story contains smut and is suitable for Adults Only. Tino gives Richard not one Christmas stocking, but two… One of two sexy reads for the festive season. This is just a bit of fun for Richard and Tino (and hopefully you as well!) Not a story as such, just a sneaky look at oneContinue reading “Christmas Stockings”

Review – Did My Heart Love Till Now? by V.B. Emanuele

I was gifted an ARC copy in return for a fair and honest review. This was a lush and lurid mafia romance, detailing the forbidden love affair between Gavino and Sofia, from opposing New York crime families. (Forbidden because the families hate each other. No other reason.) This story grabs you by the throat andContinue reading “Review – Did My Heart Love Till Now? by V.B. Emanuele”

My 10 Favourite Books of 2021

I haven’t had a lot of time for reading this year, but I did manage quite a few, and here are my favourites of the year. I’ve discovered some new authors and some are ones I’m familiar with. I hope you enjoy my choices. Stay safe and sane over the holiday period. I wish youContinue reading “My 10 Favourite Books of 2021”

Review – Hush (Tainted Love series) by R&C Christiansen

It’s a bold move, to write three books in a series which are essentially the same story but told by the main characters in their own words in each book. E.L. James did it (not very well, in my humble opinion,) but this… THIS is totally a different level. By the end of Book 2,Continue reading “Review – Hush (Tainted Love series) by R&C Christiansen”
