Sand & Water
Bookreview / June 30, 2015

Sand & Water is another book by Shae Connor, actually the second one I read from this author. I liked it, although it was a bit slow here and there. Not that much sex involved, but a whole lot of romance and love. John McConnell is a widower raising his young daughter alone on the island of Tybee in Georgia. He is living with his sister and trying to get his life back together after his wife died. At the moment there is no way he is going to be dating again, let alone find that special person again. Until he meets Bryan Simmons in the park, father to one of his daughters friends. John hasn’t always been straight in the past, so it is no strange feeling for him when he finds Bryan attractive. The feelings are mutual and Bryan also has strong feelings for John. But Bryan has a lot of emotional baggage of his own that he needs to deal with. Together they learn to deal with their feelings and start putting the demons to rest. For the first time in a long time they start feeling loved again and actually think there can be something more…

Cronin’s Key II – Cronin’s Key #2
Bookreview / June 29, 2015

Cronin’s Key II is logically part 2 in the Cronin’s Key series by N.R. Walker. Now as we all know I absolutely love N.R. Walker for everything she writes, but this second part in the series, I am not so sure about. In part 1 we met Detective Alec MacAidan who got sucked in to a strange adventure and eventually fell in love with Cronin, a vampire elder who has lived for hundreds of years. They both survive and adventure in Egypt and return home. This is where part 2 picks up. All the danger is over and Alec and Cronin are enjoying their love. They know Alec’s blood is special and he cannot be changed into a vampire. So Cronin can bite him as much as he wants, nothing happens. But it turns out that drinking so much of the same blood has side effects and they soon become a problem. When they meet Jorge, a very disturbing vampire child with the gift of foresight, they learn of a new threat rising up on the borders of China and Mongolia. However it is not the threat Alec is afraid of. It is the man behind all of it, the…

Guest Blog: Repaired
Bookreview , Guest Review / June 28, 2015

The wonderful Dana is back again and has reviewed another book for us. As we all know from the first review she did, Dana has a talent for reviewing. This time she reviewed the book Repaired by Melissa Collins. I have not read it personally but after this review I have put it on my list. Enjoy everyone, here is what Dana thought of the book. Ever since more or less devouring „On Solid Ground“ earlier this year, I’ve been looking forward to another novel from this author and so I was very keen on reading “Repaired” as soon as it came out. I’ve always had a soft for tortured heroes with a difficult past, trust issues, the whole shebang who then meet the man (or woman in case of the historical romances I’ve read for years) who changes all that. Kitschy, I know, but sometimes I’m in the mood for a dose of Kitsch:-) In “Repaired” you get two tortured heroes for the price of one: Liam Davis and Parker Ryan who both come with different kinds of baggage. When we first meet Liam, in a flashback 10 years before the main story starts, he’s a 17 year old…

The Summer House – English Hearts #1
Bookreview / June 28, 2015

The Summer House is a new book by R.J. Scott and let me tell you, this book is one for the records. I fell in love with this one and I hope everyone else will to after reading this. Of course I am a sucker for anything English, so that was a big plus, but that was not the only thing I loved about this one. Connor Lawson is a young veterinarian in a small English village. He doesn’t know what to do with his life, should he set down roots here or not? Stay or go? He is fed up with one night stands, he wants some real romance with someone who will take his heart and stay with him forever. But where to find a guy like that in a small village like this one? His boss offers him a partnership in the practice and he inherits a small house from an old friend. For the first time he thinks about staying and building a life. Ashby Sterling-Haynes is the youngest son of a rich family and has a long history of hook ups and one night stands, but he never found someone worth staying with. Until he…

Winter’s Wolf – Tales of the Harker Pack #3
Bookreview / June 27, 2015

Winter’s Wolf is part 3, and so far the final part in the Harker Pack series. And I must say they are getting better one by one. I liked part 3 more than I liked parts 1 and 2. Even though I generally don’t like shifter stories, this one really got to me in a good way. Young Winter Thane was raised by his father far away in Canada and at a very young age learned the two cardinal rules of werewolfs. Never reveal yourself to a human and there is no such thing as a gay werewolf. But of course Winter is gay and has so far only acted out his love with human males and never got further than casual flings and one night stands. But one day his father drags him away from Canada to Connecticut to meet up with his old pack and teach Winter how to act around other werewolves. And of course stop being gay. But when they finally meet the Harker pack, it turns out there are more gay werewolves and everyone is very accepting of them. Winters father sees his hopes destroyed. Next we meet FBI agent Matt Partridge, deeply involved in…

Wolf in Gucci Loafers – Tales of the Harker Pack #2
Bookreview / June 21, 2015

Wolf in Gucci Loafers is part 2 in the Harker Pack Tales and equally enticing and good. Set in the same universe as the first story, it provides back ground to characters that played a small part in the first story. I really like the build up in that way. Lindsey Vanessen is a unique being, half man, half werewolf. Once told impossible, and yet here he is. All he ever wanted in life was someone to love and someone who loves him. But who would want to have him? Too aggressive for man, too gay for werewolf. So he makes sure he is a very successful business man and is therefore very rich. Then members of rich families start being kidnapped and Lindsey decides to investigate. In doing so, he meets detective Seth Zakowsy, a black leather cop who instantly intrigues him. Seth has never been attracted to flamboyant men, but somehow Lindsey is different. But what would the people at work think when he came home with a guy like that? Surely they would laugh  at him and never let him hear the end of it. And yet, Seth cannot keep away from the man, more and more thinking…
