“Archangel of Mercy” by Christina Ashcroft (review copy)
This book is out in early December so a review will be posted then. However, I’m not entirely sure what I think of this one. I liked the world and the characters, but had a real negative reaction to the ending of this one. I will be mulling this book for a bit.

 

“Their Reluctant Submissive” by Marla Monroe (ebook)
I enjoyed this book which is the first I’ve read by this author. The heroine Kelly is the reluctant submissive, who was hurt by a man masquerading as a dominant who slowly took over her entire life. Jackson and Marx aren’t looking for a full-time submissive, but Kelly is wary. I liked this aspect of the story.

Author Interview: Jill Shalvis

rescue-200x322Today, we welcome author Jill Shalvis to talk a bit about her most recent release, “Rescue My Heart.” We are also giving away a copy of “Rescue My Heart” to one commenter.

 

Q: Can you tell our readers a bit about Rescue My Heart and its series, Animal Magnetism?

 

A: I’ve always thought cute animals and sexy heroes go together, so I started this series about a set of wildly alpha brothers running an animal center in Sunshine, Idaho at the base of the Bitteroot Mountains.

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.

“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.

Romances with Heroes in Law Enforcement

Earlier in the week, someone on Twitter asked for some romance recommendations that featured heroes who are in law enforcement.  After compiling the list, I realized that I had too many suggestions to tweet them. So here are some of the books that I’ve read (and absolutely enjoyed) over the past couple of years that have heroes in some type of law enforcement profession. Enjoy!

 

The following are in no particular order.
