“Ravishing the Heiress” by Sherry Thomas (review copy)
This book releases on July 3, 2012. Review to come. But in the meantime, I will say that Sherry Thomas is an increcible writer and storyteller.


“Two Hot” by Delilah Devlin (ebook)
This is an extremely short (22 pp) erotic romance featuring a heroine and two heroes. When her neighbors catch Emily spying on them during a power outage, they finally decide to go after what they want. This is a very steamy and quick read. I do generally find it harder to remember what transpires in these shorter stories though because there isn’t enough character development. These types of stories are much more erotically focused.

Review: Caught in the Act

caught_300“Caught in the Act” by Jill Sorenson (romantic suspense, Bantam, April 2012, $7.99, 400pp)




As the owner of a flourishing Latin American crafts boutique, Karina Strauss should be basking in her success. Instead she’s worried about her troubled sister, the girlfriend—and prisoner—of drug lord Carlos Moreno. Kari wants no part of that life, but when she helps a friend cross into the United States illegally, two men on opposite sides of the law take notice: Moreno and Adam Cortez, the handsome border protection officer who lets Kari off the hook. It’s not just Kari’s tantalizing flash of skin that catches Adam’s attention—her drug cartel connections bring back the demons of his past.


Moreno demands that Kari smuggle a package for him in exchange for her sister’s freedom. Adam also gets dangerously close, tempting her to surrender and fulfill her wildest desires. As Kari prepares for the drug run, dark secrets, violent criminals, and deadly consequences lurk around every corner. But concern for her sister drives Kari toward a terrifying act, despite Adam’s warnings, despite her overwhelming fears—and despite the odds against coming out alive.
