Review: Tart

TART-400x600“Tart” by Lauren Dane (erotic, Berkley, November 2012, $15.00, 352pp)

 

Series: Book 2 in the Delicious series

 

Summary:
Juliet Lamprey is having the time of her life running her successful bakery, TART, when Gideon Carter comes back into her life. Returning home to help his grandfather run the family on the farm, Gideon is back for good. When they meet again, the spark between them is immediate, and it isn't long before the former childhood friends play catch up in bed.

That's not good news for local lawyer Cal Whaley. Though the sexually open but strictly monogamous Cal has loved Jules for a long time, he's hardly ever taken it further than friendship. When he sees her start to fall for Gideon, he knows he has to make his move or risk losing her forever.

Author Interview: Thea Harrison

lords_fall-186x300Romance Novel News is excited to host an interview with author Thea Harrison whose latest book, “Lord’s Fall” is out today. We highly recommend all of the books in the Elder Races series. Want to win a copy of a Thea Harrison book? Read on to find out how . . .

Thanks for having me on your blog today! I’m excited to be here with you.

Q: Your latest books are set in the world of the Elder Races, a complex and well-crafted paranormal world that rivals Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunters world. What inspired you to create this intriguing and vibrant world?

A: I’ve had so much inspiration from so many different places, that I’m afraid I can’t give just one answer.  Nalini Singh’s rich worldbuilding was certainly part of that inspiration, but many other authors were too, from Patricia McKillip to J R Ward, to C J Cherryh.  I read extensively in different genres, so I think I’ve been influenced by a lot of authors.

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.

Author Interview: Elisabeth Naughton

Elisabeth_NaughtonToday, RNN features an interview and giveaway with author Elisabeth Naughton, whose book “Enslaved” releases on November 6th. This series is one of Jennifer’s favorites in the paranormal romance genre. At the end, find out how to win a copy of “Enslaved” from Naughton’s publisher, Sourcebooks.

 

Q. “Enslaved” is the 5th book in your Eternal Guardians series. Can you tell us a bit about this book?
A from EN:
The Eternal Guardians are seven warriors descended from the seven greatest heroes in Greek Mythology. They protect their own realm (Argolea) and the human realm from threats born of the Underworld, in particular one evil goddess with a serious vendetta against the guardians. Each book centers around a different guardian, with an over-arching plot of good vs. evil tying the series together.

 

Book five is Gryphon’s book. He’s my lost Argonaut. His soul was sent to the Underworld to be tortured in book 3 (“TEMPTED”) and he was rescued in book 4 (“ENRAPTURED”), but he came back a changed hero. Gryphon was always the easy-going, fun guardian. Now he hears voices, he twitches, and he fights an evil foreboding that haunts his every move. His story is really about finding himself again, and the one woman who has the power to rescue him from himself.
