Book Picks for the Week of November 12, 2012

Samantha Kane’s “The Devil Thief” (Loveswept)
There has been a great deal of talk about this one. I do have an egalley that I plan to read. I love the premise of this one which involves a heroine who is a burglar.

 

Sophie Barnes’ “There’s Something About Lady Mary” (Avon Impulse)
I have yet to read a book by historical romance author Sophie Barnes, but so want to. I do have an egalley of this one too. I like the fact that the book description hints that the heroine isn’t the usual, proper,historical miss.

Published in New Releases

“Honor’s Splendour” by Julie Garwood (ebook, re-read)
I was feeling a bit out of sorts in terms of reading late last week. As a result, I decided that I needed a comfort read. This is one of my all-time favorite books. In this historical romance (Medieval), Madelyne saves Duncan after he is captured by her brother and left to be frozen to death. Rather than treat Duncan like the enemy, Madelyne warms his feet, sealing her fate. Duncan takes Madelyne, and the rest is history. This is a book that I recommend to people all of the time.

 

“Tell Me No Lies” by Delphine  Dryden (ebook)
I will read anything that Dryden writes. She is one of my favorite erotic romance authors. And this one features a hero and heroine who are lifelong friends. Tess is in a bad spot in her life. She has given up her job, is moving home, but is having trouble coping with everything. Jack confronts Tess and makes her start dealing with things, especially the attraction that has always existed between them. This is a steamy, steamy BDSM erotic romance.

 

“Seduce Me Tonight” by Kristina Wright (anthology) (ebook)
I think this might have been free on Amazon (which is why I bought it). I often find it more difficult to get into erotic shorts because I have trouble connecting with the characters. However, this one surprised me. While not every story worked for me, a fair number of them did. I would have no problem looking at other titles by Kristina Wright.

Book Picks for the Week of November 5, 2012

Jessica Andersen’s “Spellfire” (Signet)
I adore this paranormal series that features the Nightwalkers who are fighting to stop the Mayan end-date prophecy from happening. I have a review copy of this that I am desperately trying to find the time to read. This one is the final book in the series – and I love the fact that Andersen created this series with definitive end. We need more of this.

 

Beth Ciotta’s “Her Sky Cowboy” (Signet)
I have to admit that Steampunk books can make me twitchy, so I often avoid them. I’m not sure if it is the sky cowboy hero or the lure of sky pirates that appeals. However, I want to read this one. I do have a review copy waiting for waiting for me.

 

Olivia Cunning’s “Double Time” (Sourcebooks)
I have yet to read any of Olivia Cunning’s sinners books. However, review Missy Thompson loved this one – and I’ve heard lots of great buzz about it.

Review (kind of): Undeniable

Undeniable“Undeniable” by Madeline Sheehan (contemporary, October 2012, self-published, $1.99, 219pp)

 

**NOTE: This is less of a review than Jennifer's reaction to this book. There are many, many spoilers here.***

 

Summary:
***Warning*** (This book contains several aspects of the uglier side of life; it is not for everyone.)

The story of Deuce and Eva...

An undeniable connection that stands the test of time.

Unforgettable moments.

Love and pain and everything in between.
