Review for 'The One That Got Away,' by: Jess Dee!!



It was FANTASTIC!! A very believable, grippingly breathtaking love story!! I fell in LOVE with these two characters!! I enjoyed Lily's standoffish behavior towards Kai, especially when she elucidates the way he shattered her heart. Then Kai demonstrating the fact that he made a mistake, trying desperately to convince Lily, that she's the ONE! The scenes were EXTREMELY descriptive! And best of all, Ms. Dee used my 3 MOST FAVORITE WORDS when articulating a sordid love affair: tumultuous, traitorous, & tempestuous. WELL DONE MS. DEE, WITHOUT-A-DOUBT BEYOND A 5 STAR RATING!!

Review for 'Wrong Bed, Right Guy,' by Katee Robert




"Takin' the Bull By The Horns!"

 Elle Walser was exhausted of all the subtle hints she kept tossing in her boss' direction. Nathan Schultz is the ultimate gentlemen, who Elle could envision settling down with, have a couple of children, and truly be happy. However, Nathan wasn't understanding what Elle desperately tried to convey to him. So she takes matters into her own hands and conceives a scheme, to literally sneak into his bed one night, wear a scintillatingly sexy piece of lingerie that she wouldn't typically purchase for herself, and attempt some sort of seduction.

Occasionally the best orchestrated plans don't always have the best results, or DO THEY?

Unbeknownst to Elle, Nathan's older brother, Gabe is in town from Los Angeles, California, and staying with him for a short amount of time. As Elle strolls into Nathan's unlit bedroom, assuming he's asleep, she decides to just  crawl into the bed, and entice him with all she has planned. Yet, as soon as the SIZZLING connection between these two vast opposites become evident, it is VIRTUALLY impossible to break free from the enchanted spell that has been cast upon them.

Ms. Robert has conceived a SPECTACULAR  novel that I CONSUMED. Her writing abilities had me INTRIGUED from page ONE until the very END. Between the constant bickering between Elle & Gabe, as they bait each other back and forth with the many conversations and situations bestowed upon them, causing the reader to literally LAUGH-OUT-LOUD. To finally the most sincere, titillating moments they shared was truly breathtakingly BEAUTIFUL!


 **The 'Highlander Scene' was the clincher for me, a past conversation I had with my hubby regarding an erotic novel I was reading at the time was verbatim, to this scene---I laughed so loud that strangers stared at me as though I was INSANE!  I UNDOUBTEDLY LOVE THAT REACTION when reading a really GREAT story!  >;o}~~

WITHOUT A DOUBT, THIS NOVEL DESERVES NOTHING SHORT OF A 10 STAR RATING, WELL DONE MS. ROBERT!!

Congratulations to Sylvia Day's e-book, 'Bared to You,' Currently #10 NYT Bestsellers List!



Major Kudos goes outo Sylvia Day, for hitting the top #10 on NY Times Bestsellers List, for the ebook version of 'Bared to You: (A Crossfire Novel)!' With the much anticipated sequel, 'Reflected in You: (A Crossfire Novel),' in ebook format to be released on October 2, 2012, then with print version on October 23, 2012. Finally ending the year with 'Entwined with You: (A Crossfire Novel),' as of right now amazon.com is listing the released date for both ebook & print on December 31, 2012, however, if that changes I will post!!

**Believe the 'HYPE,' regarding this novel, it's similar to E.L. James', '50 Shades of Grey,' yet UNPARALLELED to it! It's 10 X'S BETTER! Whatever you do, DON'T do as I have, and believe the IMBECILES who state that this novel, series, whichever, is an exact reproduction to Ms. James' masterpiece. If that was the fact, Ms. Day would be in violation of copyright infringements!! Make Your Own Decisions! When deciding which novels to read, if you're not interested within the first 100 pages, to me I don't bother with again!

However, getting back to 'Bared to You.' This story is written at a fast pace, with INSATIABLE erotic scenes that will leave you BREATHLESS, CRAVING your own release!! I'm am being HELD HOSTAGE, by Gideon & Eva's unquenchable thirst for one another, to the point I CANNOT concentrate on anything else during the day! I completely zone out, TRAPPED in my own fantasies staring Mr. Cross!**

WELL DONE MS. DAY, DEFINITELY BEYOND A 10 STAR RATING!
I've already pre-order the remaining novels within this series!!

'Edge of Dawn,' by Lara Adrian


The next novel within the Midnight Breed Series to be released on January 22, 2013 is Edge of Dawn. Making it number 11 within this Ground-breaking, Amazing, & Phenomenal Series. This is the description derived directly from amazon.com:

**Twenty years after the terror of First Dawn—when mankind learned that vampires lived secretly among them—the threat of violence reigns as the two species struggle to coexist. The only group preserving the fragile harmony is the Order, an elite cadre of Breed warriors dedicated to protecting humans and vampires alike. And in this precarious world of torn loyalties and shattered trust, Mira, a fiery squad captain, finds that every fight bears an intensely personal cost.

Raised among the Order, Mira has always believed in the warrior’s code of swift—and even lethal—justice. But the one thing she desires more than the Order’s hard-won acceptance is Kellan Archer, a sexy but troubled Breed fighter. In love with him since childhood, Mira once broke through his tough exterior during an unexpected night of rapture, but the next day he mysteriously disappeared, never to return.

Kellan didn’t think he would ever see Mira again—or have to confront the truth of why he left. After abandoning the Order years ago, he now leads a band of human rebels intent on carrying out their own vigilante rule of law. Yet a high-profile kidnapping assignment brings him face-to-face with the past he sought to avoid, and the striking woman he has tried desperately to forget. And as tensions mount and the risk of bloodshed grows, Kellan and Mira must take sides—between the competing missions that dominate their lives, and the electrifying passion that claims their hearts.**

Mira was first introduced in Veil of Midnight, one of my most favorite & most memorable novels thus far within the Midnight Series. Even though I've purchased the rest of the novels completing my collection from this point on; however, I definitely have some catching up to do before Edge of Dawn is released. Nevertheless, I undoubtedly know for a fact I will definitely be enjoying the journey on discovering what occurs to the Order, and what road blocks will be placed within their path.

A special Thank You goes out to Ms. Adrian for writing such memorable characters, who we the reader take within our hearts. As we treasure them the only way we know how, as priceless artifacts! Unobtainable to the ordinary-minded individuals around us who DO NOT possess ONE literary bone within their body. . . Who would ridicule us as NOTHING more than a NERD, GEEK, or BOOKWORM!!

I AM PROUD TO BE ALL OF THE ABOVE, for I've had the opportunity to meet such wonderful & amazing people within the literary world!! People who possess the same passions as I do!!

Review for 'Jillian's Job,' by Fran Lee!!



“Good Things or Men Come to Those Who Wait!!”

Jillian has been employed by Michael Furie as his personal assistant. Within the past seven years, she has had to run interference for him. For instance at the precise moment, while hosting a luxurious affair at his Aspen home, needing Jillian’s assistance in aiding him as he firmly removes the claws attached to his hide, belonging to his latest vixen, trying desperately to acquire her latest meal ticket.

Mr. Furie has the jet, limo, and a quick stop to a couture designer on standby waiting for Jillian to make her appearance known. Nevertheless, Jillian is furious that she needs to attend this grand gala, to save his derriere yet again, and to top it all off he has the audacity to be rescued on the same weekend her family has planned a birthday party in her honor. Well Jillian has plans of her own when she arrives in Aspen, Michael will be paying out of the ying-yang, for his latest blunder.

Yet when the anger and the dust settle, who truly will be knocked for a loop?

Oh Ms. Lee, your writing has left my loins completely quivering for my own eruption(s). Your heroes are RAVENOUSLY INSATIABLE with their love-making. It feels as though they cannot breathe without their heroines. It’s TRULY & UNDENIABLY INSPIRING, to be possessed by an alpha male with that much INFATUATION, causing the reader to stake claim on a vigilant male with those qualifications, as she seeks him out on her very own scavenger hunt.

Your novels also has my favorite elements infused within them, my 3 ‘S’ Factors = SIZZLING, SCORCHING, SEX!

WELL DONE MS. LEE, DEFINITELY 10 STARS!!

Review for 'Woman on Fire,' by Fran Lee!




"Flames Never Felt So Good! Another Euphoric Rapturous Novel by the Brilliant Ms. Lee!"

Two vast individuals with a common destiny. . .

Azrael Thunder Horse was born American Indian, he has rediscovered his long forgotten heritage, accepting his demons of the past to forge a future by becoming celibate. Divulging all his time, energy, and some of his finances, as principal of the Lakota school in Fort Yates, North Dakota.

Azrael has been a firm believer that the Lakota people should be joined to one another, and not allow any Anglo's to interfere or distract them from their goals.

Therefore when he discovers the faux pas he made on hiring the red-haired, azure eyed, bombshell standing before him. Azrael knows he's in a load of trouble, especially when his insides are combusting into a million pieces, with just coasting his eyes upon her succulent body, ready to be devoured by his hidden animalistic fantasies.

Cheyenne Red Wolf has been harboring a desire to be a full-blooded American Indian, yet her genetics has made that virtually impossible. Nevertheless, she has the heart and the knowledge to be taken seriously as the Native American Studies teacher. She has been taught the beliefs of the Lakota people by her step-father Frank Red Wolf.

However, even though Mr. Thunder Horse has tried to fire Ms. Red Wolf, Cheyenne will be challenged into a battle for her position. Yet who will become victorious in this war?

Especially when losing one's heart to the ONLY person who can cause nothing but an electric shock to zigzag throughout their body with just one glare. Imagine a lifetime, of delirious sexcapades with that one person would bring forth!

Ms. Lee has done it again, casting an unbreakable spell upon her readers with her amazing writing abilities. Describing in full detail the raw emotions, and sexual gratification the hero and heroine possesses for one another. Causing the reader to walk in a trance-like state for the duration of the day and night. Unable to concentrate on any singular thing until the entire novel is DEVOURED!

WELL DONE MS. LEE THIS NOVEL DESERVES NOTHING SHORT OF A 10 STAR RATING!!

Yazoo -- Don't Go!

The Yazoo song I just posted I absolutely LOVE. I remember being 16 yrs old with my 1st Freestyle Mix Tape (yes, I did say tape, not CD), and that song was part of the mix.

Now after 18 yrs it still effects me the same way as it did back then. My children enjoy it as well. My 9 1/2 month old is trying to crawl, so he scoots up in the position, and rocks his cooly back in forth to the music, then he proceeds to give me a HUGE cheese grin with his 4 teeth! It's so hilarious!

Lorelei James has been ranked on the New York Times Bestseller list for eBooks (14), the New York Times combined Bestseller list for eBooks and print (22), and the USA Today Bestseller list (37) for eBooks and print books, with her eBook romance, Kissin’ Tell.

I Absolutely Adore Toni Blake's Novels!



I ADORE the whole Destiny Series, it's like coming back home from an extended stay somewhere. The characters you've created as so likable, and close to my own friends, that at times I forget I'm reading fiction. 

After reading One Reckless Summer, I bought my son (at the time he was 2 1/2 yrs old) the cat in the hat's: 'There's No Place Like Space,' book, and we had a Lunar Eclipse on Dec. 21, 2010. I woke up in the early morning, scared out of my wits end 'cause of every noise I heard, & recorded it for my son. I caught Bronchitis a few days later, but it was well worth it.

Her other novels are part of my favorites as well, Tempt Me Tonight (I enjoyed the mention of Joe & Trish in W.S.) & Letters to a Secret Lover.

I'm about 1/2 way through Willow Springs, yet Amy & Logan are driving me bonkers. So instead of getting hit with the pillow for the 3rd night in a row from my hubby, 'cause of my outbursts. I've decided to revisit the Farris & Romo clan from Sugar Creek. To learn about Giovanni Romo, it had me wondering about my own heritage regarding my Great Grandfather who came to Philly in search of work, gaining a large some of money, and eventually returning to Italy never to be seen on U.S. soil again.

Ms. Blake is an OUTSTANDING & PHENOMENAL writer, I wish nothing but SUCCESS in everything she does! And most of all many more novels making the NY Times Best Seller's & USA Today's List!

I'm So Ecstatic to Announce That The Long Awaited 'Kissin' Tell,' by Lorelei James' Has Finally Been Released!

**This post was published at 1:24 a.m. Eastern Time on June 26, 2012**

'Kissin' Tell,' is Lorelei James' 13th novel within the EPIC 'Rough Riders Series.' So far there hasn't been a disappointed novel written by LJ. She spins her books into GOLDEN webs full of DESIRE, UNDENIABLE PASSION, & GUT-WRENCHING EMOTIONAL tales that will bring forth a THIRST you CANNOT SATIATE!



**Listed below is the AUTHOR'S synopsis, NOT my review**


KISSIN' TELL

She once led him around by a string. Now he’s the one holding the reins.
Georgia Hotchkiss swore wild horses couldn’t drag her back to Sundance, Wyoming. So it’s ironic she’s forced to take a rodeo PR job in her former hometown—right before her ten-year class reunion. The only thing worse than facing her cheating ex-husband and his pregnant wife? Showing up to the reunion without a date. Fate smiles on her when she runs into her former classmate and current cowboy hottie Tell McKay. With his infectious smile and fun-loving ways—not to mention his banging body—he’s the perfect solution to her problem.
Tell McKay had it so bad for Hot Lips Hotchkiss during high school that he let her run roughshod over him. But he is no longer that easily manipulated boy—these days he’s earned a reputation with the ladies that lives up to the McKay last name. He agrees to escort her to the reunion with one stipulation; that Georgia proves she has left behind the goody-goody cheerleader of the past—by sharing his bed.
Their sexual chemistry flashes so bright, they barely notice that the reunion has come and gone, and now they’re tangled up in another dreaded “R” word—relationship. But if Tell wants to get the girl this go-around, he’ll have to come up with a whole new set of knots to tie up her heartstrings.
Warning: Contains a sweet talkin’ wild cowboy with a wagon load of crazy-hot sex fantasies and the mad bedroom skills to back up his claims.

Yay! It's Release Day! Toni Blake's 'Willow Springs: A Destiny Novel, #5'

***This post was published 12:49 a.m. Eastern Time on June 26, 2012***


**The Author's Synopsis NOT my review is listed below**

Amy Bright might be the best matchmaker in Destiny, Ohio, but she's desperately shy when it comes to her own love life—and helpless when it comes to Logan Whitaker, with whom she's head-over-heels in love. So Amy decides to become Logan's secret admirer, sending him sensual love letters steamy enough to unseal their own envelopes.


After a tragedy on the job, firefighter Logan is battling demons. Thank goodness Amy is there for him. But when a woman from Logan's past resurfaces right as some anonymous letters send Logan's pulse hammering, suddenly he doesn't know what he needs. One smoking-hot kiss could change everything . . . but will it ruin a one-of-a-kind friendship, or show Logan and Amy that they've already found everything they need, right here in Destiny?

Definitely a Dream Come True!!

50 Shades of Grey by E. L. James




"Alas, I've Succumb To the 50 Shades Series!"
***Review based on 3/4 of Completion of This Novel!!***


A family member "LOANED," this PHENOMENAL book to me, because at the time I adamantly refused to purchase it. For exactly two reasons, I don't normally read what everyone else is--I tend to be my own judge of character and follow the beat of my own drum! And the other was I extremely support all the AMAZING authors who have written Erotic BDSM Romances before Ms. James, and thought their novels were SPECTACULAR! For example: Maya Banks'--Sweet Series, Cherise Sinclair--Master of the Mountain, & Lorelei James--Rough Riders Series--specially Cowboy Casanova!  

However, when I began to read the first chapter it was VIRTUALLY impossible to cease--I was HOOKED, REELED, & DEVOURED within minutes!

I haven't read a series involving the same storyline with characters who continue their EXPLORATION into what "LOVE" might bring forth throughout all three books--since I've completed the Twilight Series 4 years ago. I ABSOLUTELY possess the exact same conviction as I do with the beginning of this CATASTROPHIC series as I did with that one!

I'm IMMENSELY satisfied that Ms. Steele is stubborn and challenging Mr. Grey every step of the way, also concerning his extraordinary WICKED activities.

I've invested an EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENT to Ms. Steele and Mr. Grey, one of which I'm not ready to depart from as of yet! I'm OVERZEALOUS of the fact I truly won't have to until the final novel.

My subconscious, she's SCREAMING at me from the top of her lungs, SCOLDING and ACCUSING me of being a HYPOCRITE, repeating to me--like a broken record, "I TOLD YOU SO!" While my inner goddess is secretly scribbling down notes!

Ms. James with this novel undoubtedly you deserve NOTHING SHORT of a 10 STAR RATING!!

The Pirate Lord (Lord Trilogy Book #1) by Sabrina Jeffries

**I copied the image of this novel directly from amazon.com, I do not own this image or was paid for the following review**





I'm in the middle of reading, "The Pirate Lord," and I have to say it is spectacular! Full of dramatic, insatiable, amorous scenes between Gideon & Sara, which have caused me to read every last tidbit I could before succumbing to slumber! Well done Ms. Jeffries, I'm eagerly awaiting to discover the conclusion of what has occurred between Capt. Horn & Miss Willis, if they will live happily ever after on Atlantis.

Nas-T-Boyz Video's

Omg, I was listening to Itunes today & the radio section has a live radio station: freestyle vault. Well I caught the tail end of this song: "What I'm feeling," by Nas-T-Boyz, 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6T8kfi8f-g

And I couldn't figure out who sang it. So while I was out discovering who it was I came across their other song: "Intimate Strangers," I went on youtube and saw their video. OMG, this video is so FUCKEN H.O.T., I have to take a cold shower! This is why I read ONLY romance novels, 'cause I get to see this kind of stuff in my head, (Ok, that sounds kind of crazy, but it's TRUE!!)

**WARNING: Video is from the 90's, the volume it's all that great, & it repeats!**

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video >;o)~~~

What I've Been Reading Lately!

Still reading, "The Pleasure of Your Kiss," by Teresa Medeiros. Yet I've also started one of her other novels as well. I ordered, "Thief of Hearts," lastweek at Barnes and Nobles. The e-book was $7.99 so I decided to buy the paperback for $4.99 instead. Yes, I saved $3.00 but I really should have bought the e-book anyway, for it's been awhile since I've read a novel produced by Mass Market Paperback. Some of the pages were so light, it made it extremely difficult to read.

Nevertheless, I drudged on, and I've been overwhelemed by emotion, the perilous passion, and the unhindered ability to crave every nuance of Ms. Medeiros written word. It is extremely descriptive, that at times I had to go back and retrieve the last sentence I read. For if one unconscious thought on a different subject crossed my mind, I was utterly lost. I literally had no choice to give this novel my undivided attention, and once I did, I couldn't cease from reading it.

Ms. Medeiros reminds me of the breathtakingly beautiful historical romance authors: Hannah Howell, Emma Wildes, and Anne Stuart with their descriptive writing, as though I'm reading a sonnet.

Review for "Charming the Prince," by Teresa Medeiros

**THE COVER WAS FROM AMAZON.COM, IT IS NOT MINE & DOES NOT BELONG TO ME**



A CAPTIVATED, EXHILATRATING, HISTERICALLY-FUNNY, & SURPRISING NOVEL! From the Very First Page!

The mystical and legendary warrior, Lord Bannor the Bold, of Elsinore has returned home as a widower, to develope a long-lasting kindship with his twelve children, since the war with the French has now ceased.

However, Lord Bannor couldn't believe his eyes, that such a feat would be accomplished without any guidance or assistance from another. Until he becomes the main source of his hoard of misfits wayward behavior.

Bannor sends his steward, Sir Hollis to obtain a proper and worthy mother and a homely bride for himself, because he NO longer wishes to create any more demon spawns with his beneficial seed. For rumor has it, by just one quick glance into Bannor's eyes, could cause any fair maiden to become pregnant with his child.

Long and behold after combing all of England, Sir Hollis finally caught a view of a DEVINE creature, someone who resembles the Madonna.

Lady Willow of Bellington, long ago desired a mother as well. Someone who possessed a kind hearted disposition, who would take her under her wing, and teach her all that was to be learned by a mother's love. However, what she received was her very own nightmare. The woman who became her, "mother," treated Willow nothing more a than a servant/nursemaid, who couldn't be bothered with formalities of being the one person she craved the most. Willow's own father never prosecuted his new flushing bride, due to the treacherous behavior she bestowed upon his ONLY child produced in a LOVEABLE marriage. He stepped aside while condemning Willow to the life of servitude, of taking care of her venomous step-sisters and step-brothers. Willow would like nothing more than her freedom, but with her current situation, she was unlike to come across such liberties.

Until Sir Hollis makes an offer for Willow that NO one could refuse!

When Willow arrives to Elsinore, she couldn't believe her fortune, for she was finally FREE! However, with all freedom comes a hefty price.

Willow is a SPITFIRE, WORD SWASH-BUCKLING, VIXEN. 'Causing NOTHING but a TEMPTATION within Bannor's well concealed heart. Matching his every whim to persuade her to venture a different direction - - - only to realize his third wife might have what it takes to CAPTURE his devilish imps of children, and himself in a VISE of INDISPUTABLE LOVE!

**Beatrix was a much vital distraction to this novel, especially when all you wanted to do was knock some sense into Bannor & Willow.**

Such MAGNANIMOUS Men ONLY Exist in the Realm of a Fantastic Medieval Romance or for that matter a romance novel in general. WELL DONE MS. MEDEIROS THIS NOVEL DESERVES NOTHING SHORT OF A 10 STAR RATING!

My Top 10 Pick's For This Valentine's Day!

First let me start with, "Wishing Everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!!"  >;o)~~~~  XOXO

The Greatest of All . . . . Is To Love . . . . & To Be Loved in Returned!! By Your Family, Friends, Pets, & Etc. al . . . . Love Heals All Wounds!!

Any-who, back to the subject at hand. I've enjoyed so many novels in the past few years, and narrowing them down was truly difficult for me to do. Therefore, some numbers have up to a 6-way-tie!

Let's start the list with:

10. --- "The Twilight Saga Complete Collection," by Stephenie Meyers --- I have to give major kudos to Ms. Meyers 'cause I wouldn't have continued reading books if it wasn't for these phenonmenal novels. I was HOOKED!

9. --- 2-Way-Tie! "Whitney, My Love," by Judith McNaught --- Ms. McNaught was recommended to me by my sister-in-law, Ginger --- HUGE XOXO! I remember it was my oldest son's 3rd bday party, and I would sneak away just to read one more page. Aftering reading, "Breaking Dawn," I knew I would be able to read anything including this novel, since it was over 700 pages long!

"Wild Conquest," by Hannah Howell --- Ms. Howell's writting was immensely, artistically beautiful. I felt as though I was listening to a peaceful, spell-binding, and an unforgettable sonnet!

8. --- "Under the Blood Red Moon," by Mina Hepsen --- This was my very 1st Adult Paranormal/Historicial Romance. After reading this novel, I was hooked on reading ONLY Adult Romance Novels.

7. --- 5-Way-Tie! "Rude Awakening," by Veronica Chadwick --- This novel was my 1st Espionage, FBI Romance. I was blow away, loved every minute, and was extremely pleased that Ms. Chadwick was willing to write the herione as a plus size woman, not looking for love, but was knocked right into it!

"Moving Violations: Law & Disorder," by Lora Leigh & Veronica Chadwick --- Also my 1st collaborated novel written by two outstanding authors. When I purchased this novel from Amazon.com it wasn't any longer in print, therefore, I purchased it brand-new for $30. I'm extremely glad I did 'cause at the time I would have probably paid more than 5x's that amount, just for a chance to read it!

"Jinxed," by Inez Kelley --- 'Til this day I still believe every women should get Jinxed! This novel was beyond hiliarious. The alpha-male possessed an exuberant amount of admiration, devotion, and undeniable love, he was willing to give to the herione just by a 1st glance. It was truly inspiring!

"Tame Horses Wild Hearts," by Alison Paige --- Wild hearts indeed! When the hero and herione first meet, sparks fly off the page! It was SIZZLING HOT!!

"Their One and Only," by Trista Ann Michaels --- My 1st Menage and definitely NOT my last!

6. --- "Game for Seduction," by Bella Andre --- When I initally read this novel it wasn't even football season what-so-ever, but since the GIANTS were winning, I kept coming back to read this novel. I've read it at least 4x's, and I never get tired of reading the same scenes over and over again! The numerous sexcapades were intense!

5. --- "Veil of Midnight," and "Midnight Awakening," by Lara Adrian --- It's been awhile since I've read a novel by Ms. Adrian, but I've still collected the rest of the books within the Midnight Breed Series.

When I began reading the first novel within this riveting series, it was around the 9th anniversary of my father's death. And every year 'til that point, I would get extremely depressed, and shut out the rest of the world. Yet when I read, "Kiss of Midnight," I was transported to this fictional place where this alien-vampire race protects all of man kind and their own race from a treacherous vampire out to destroy all in his path! It was an excellent distraction. I even have purchased, "Taken by Midnight," and "Darker After Midnight," via Ms. Adrian's website (http://www.laraadrian.com/) that were signed by her. I was beyond thrilled when I received them both!

4. --- "Holly Lane-A Destiny Novel, Letters to a Secret Lover, & Tempt Me Tonight," by Toni Blake --- These 3 novels are my all time favorite from Ms. Blake.

3. --- "Brazen, Sweet Persuasion, & Sweet Temptation," by Maya Banks

I received alot of criticism and no one has agreed with me for original review for, "Sweet Temptation," but I'm sorry but I truly enjoyed this novel. The hero Micah is so tortured by his past, he refuses to let anyone in. He's made new friends when he moved to Houston, TX from Miami, FL; where he once lived with his wife, Hannah, best friend, David, and David's little sister, Angelina. Since Micah and David were both in love with Hannah, they all agreed to share her instead of competing with each other for her love. Yet when Hannah and David are killed in an accident, Micah is humiliated by the repercussions of their agreement. Therefore, he decides to leave. Nevertheless, Micah left the most important part of the equation out, Angelina. She discovers that Micah is now living in Houston, and decides to confront him and the feelings she's been harboring for him for years. But Micah isn't ready. He's ONLY willing to give her his body, but NOT his heart. He puts her through HELL, he degrades her, and yes, he pimps her out. He pushs Angelina to the point of no return. And still she never says, NO! Knowing that if she does, she'll lose him forever! I'm NOT condoning what he did, but I understand it!

2. --- "Cowgirl Up and Ride, (Rough Riders #3), Branded as Trouble (Rough Riders #5), & Shoulda Been a Cowboy, (Rough Riders #6)," by Lorelei James --- I've read "Cowgirl Up and Ride," & "Branded as Trouble," at least 4 or 5 x's. I refuse to let them go. Also another novel by Ms. James that I truly cannot refuse is, "Wrangled and Tangled: A Blacktop Novel." 

Lorelei James possess the greatest qualities for making her the MOST sought after Erotic Romance Novelist of ALL TIME, with her INSATIABLE characters-whose situations and EXPLICIT PASSION become etched into your memory. Down to earth, wholehearted family-wishing you were a member of. And above all, such HEARTFELT emotions either good or bad are rolled into several compromising storylines. Ms. James' writing is PHENOMENAL! Every single novel written by her has either received 4 or 5 stars, which is a rare commodity in itself for any author. But Ms. James happens to have that MAGIC touch in spades!!


1. --- "Blue-Eyed Devil, Secrets of a Summer Night, Again the Magic, Devil in Winter, Suddenly You, & Then Came You," by Lisa Kleypas. Ms. Kleypas is my MOST favorite Historical Romance Novelist of all time! She could do NO wrong in my book! Yet instead of continuing writing in just historical, Ms. Kleypas has been writing contempporary romances as well. First with her, "Travis Series," and now with her, "Friday Harbor Series," as well. Which the second installment of her, "Friday Harbor Series," is due to be released on February 28, 2012, "Rainshadow Road."

"Claimed by the Captain," by Tara Kingston



**For some strange reason Barnes & Nobles will NOT accept my review for this novel, because it has unappropriate language. I really DON'T think so, but hey whatever! I'll let you be the judge of that!**

Capt. Jason Kane has captured his arch nemesis' daughter Catherine Farrell, by abducting her from her father's ball, of which he has proclaimed to auction her to the highest bidder.

As Catherine's ruthless father prospers from his thievery actions against unexpected men's fortunes, supplementing his own dwindling bounty. So many men lost their entire wealth, extinguishing their own lives, and brought desuetude and despair to their whole entire families. Undoubtedly there is a Price to be Paid, and the, "Pie-Piper," has come to COLLECT!

If Catherine becomes ruined due to her scandalous abduction and caring his seed, would that be the ultimate REVENGE?

However, when Catherine's response to Jason's smoldering caresses, and devouring kisses provides fruitless to his well devised plan. Further destroying his own senses within the process, for she CANNOT contain the tortuous behavior her body has been craving for his simple touch, and has become VITAL to her very existence.

Nevertheless,  Capt. Kane MUST follow through, if NOT he too will perish within the depth of the consuming flames caused by their passionately exploits they've elicited upon one another, or shall LOVE prevail, and swallow these two SOUL MATES into the realm of an EVERLASTING UNION?

This novel was exquisitely written, the play on words and the many synonyms Ms. Kingston used to describe the art of lovemaking was ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT! It reminded me very much of the artistically beautiful novel written by Ms. Hannah Howell, "Wild Conquest."

WELL DONE MS. KINGSTON THIS NOVEL DESERVES WELL BEYOND A 5 STAR RATING!

Other Recommendations: "Only with Your Love," and "Lady Sophia's Lover," by Lisa Kleypas; "Wild Conquest," by Hannah Howell; "Captain's Price," by Lyla Sinclair; & finally NOT part of Historical Romance yet Western Modern-Day--- "Wrangled & Tangled: A Blacktop Cowboy Novel," by Lorelei James.
