Fallen Angel Reviews review of Janis Susan May's The Fair Amazon

Kimber gave Janis' Regency romance 5 Angels! Well done, Janis!

"The Fair Amazon is a very unique Regency romance about love, trust, and forgiveness...The ending was quite satisfying. The hero is not perfect and, until the end of the novel, I was unsure they would end up together. Georgina has better men as suitors but not better men for her. The story is cleverly told from the point of view of each perspective hero, adding to the mystery. The Fair Amazon will take readers on an emotional roller-coaster ride arriving finally at true love."

Allbooks Reviews review of John B. Rosenman's Beyond Those Distant Stars

Peter Klein said:

"This is a no-nonsense space battle story with plenty of action to move the story forward through all the twists and turns of deception, treason, human selfishness, prejudice and - of course - love. And as it is with most of the best Sci-Fi, the story will cause you to contemplate some of the big question humans face when they look up at the night sky and wonder: do I matter, is there a god, what’s it all about, Alfie?"

Apex Reviews review of Gracie C. McKeever's Flames Past

Josee Morgan gave Gracie's paranormal novel 5 Stars!

"A priceless jewel from early in her writing career, Flames Past displays the trademark literary excellence for which acclaimed author Gracie C. McKeever has become well known. In it, she seamlessly weaves such topics as love, heartbreak, family dynamics, relationship politics, and, of course, the mercurial workings of the heart, into a well-crafted tale reflective of the multi-faceted tapestry of human experience. Despite their God-given “unique” abilities, Sean and Echo are nonetheless flesh-and-blood beings prone to the same feelings and inclinations as us all, and their individual and collective struggles present the reader with a realistic snapshot of the difficulties we all face when confronted with both natural and supernatural challenges.

Also, in her signature fashion, McKeever embodies her characters with the same full-on, lifelike qualities as all the players in her ever-growing body of writings. In so doing, she prevents the reader from reaching snap judgments about any one in particular – and even manages to evoke feelings of sympathy and compassion for the supposed “bad guys” of the tale.

Compelling and enlightening, Flames Past is an excellent introduction to what has become a long, outstanding career of one superlative tale after another. Kudos to McKeever for continuing to provide readers worldwide with stories guaranteed to keep them hooked from beginning to end. Highly recommended."

Mind Fog Reviews review of Marilyn Meredith's Dispel The Mist

Marilyn Thompson gave Marilyn's novel 5 Stars! Way to go!

"I found Marilyn Meredith's Dispel the Mist to be a wonderfully engaging story filled with suspense and intrigue. The plot was rich with characters and a story line that pulled at the detective in me. Just when I thought I had the solution, a new suspect would spring forth and throw me off balance. I especially loved the inclusion of Native American folklore, which added even more mystery to the story. This story was like being on a roller coaster that only went uphill. It filled me with the same breath-holding anticipation of what was to come when I finally reached the top. This is a very good 5 star book and I will be recommending it to all of my friends and family."

"This was a pleasure to read. It is a wonderful murder mystery served along side a mound of political intrigue with a double helping of subtle romance. The characters are well rounded and well defined, each with their own history, passions, and weaknesses.

What I found I enjoyed the most was how the romance flowed with the story instead of railroading it as so often done in this genre. The relationships featured range from chaste to scandalous, each suited to the couple.

You Gotta Read Reviews review of Danielle Thorne's Turtle Soup

Jennifer said Danielle's romance is a novel You Gotta Read! Great job, Danielle!

"I thought this was such a sweet story. A story of love lost and the ability to find love again. Both Jack and Sara have lost significant people in their lives due to death, and that makes for a hard story to write. I think Ms. Thorne found the right mix of detail without harping on the sadness of the deaths. I enjoyed all the tension between Jack and Sara. They really can't stand each other at the beginning, but Sara learns to trust him. Ms. Thorne does a great job writing, and giving the characters a life of their own. I really liked the depth of Jack. He has to learn to open up and trust again too. I liked using sea turtle research as Jack's passion."

Regina gave Kate's contemporary romance 5 Coffee Cups! Way to go, Kate!

"The Spanish Conquest is a fantastic read! The characters, both primary and secondary are compelling. The tenderness between Luis and Cordelia is beautiful. I loved how Cordelia just jumped right in and started taking care of Luz, and how she loved her unconditionally. The many mean-spirited women that are jealous and want to keep Cordelia and Luis from being happy added just the right amount of emotional tension. Cordelia’s uncertainty about Luis’ love is endearing and makes her seem very real. I also liked how Luis was able to really look at himself and understand his own strengths and weaknesses. This book is a keeper and one that I am very happy to recommend!"

Romance Reviews Today review of Blaise Kilgallen's Never Let Me Go

Jane Bowers said:

"This is only the beginning of a merry romp that involves three bride candidates, a conniving fortune hunter, mischievous twins, a map of Egyptian treasures, a most charming rakish earl, and a secondary romance. Poor Horatio and his plans for a business-like marriage with none of that romantic folderol! He's met his match in the voluptuous, innocent, six-foot Anabel, who had given up hope of marriage, and would certainly not put herself in the hands of a man without love. But what about the sexual tension crackling the air between them? That's part of the fun.

"The publication of THWARTING MAGIC follows that of Ms. Marr's ROUND TABLE MAGICIAN of a year ago, but it's really a prequel that takes place earlier in time and introduces some of the characters featured in the first book.

THWARTING MAGIC can be downloaded from the publisher now and will be available in print from Amazon.com.

Best of all, there are still young, single mages with stories to tell. If Georgette Heyer were still with us, I'd like to think she'd approve of this alternate Regency. She loved her cant and would have enjoyed the mild Arthurian-flavored oaths."

Romance Reviews Today review of Susanne Marie Knight's Regency Society Revisited

Jane Bowers said:

"REGENCY SOCIETY REVISITED opens with an interesting concept and a couple of other futuristic or paranormal touches, but it's also a traditional Regency romance with parties and balls and an appearance by the Prince Regent. Serry makes good headway with her monograph of Society's attitudes toward the war with the French, however, and the class division of the times, thanks to characters of the serving class. Readers will enjoy the several passionate scenes, a villain, and two secondary romances. And there's the added heartbreak of the choice for Serry between giving up love in 1813 or her family in 2021 to further distance this novel from the ordinary. Regency lovers should enjoy this one."

"Connie Keenan is a new author to me. I found this book refreshing to read about a couple who, after the age of forty, still could have feelings for, and fall in love with, someone. This book also emphasized that a couple does not have to be making lots of money to be happy. These characters were so ‘real-world’ to me—people who chose to do something out of the ordinary and still be successful.

There were some extraordinary people who interacted with this main couple. This book showed ordinary people doing mundane things and it was acceptable. Though the two main characters were from opposite ends of the financial spectrum, they were both doing what made them happiest. The ending was amazing.

This book was romantic but is a book for anyone. I recommend it to all."

"This book put me in mind of the more classic English mysteries. Normally I am not able to really get into a story of that type but this one snuck up on me. I found myself becoming attached to the characters and the plot to the point that I did not notice the writing style as much. Anymore, most vampire novels involve vampires that are far from your more traditional vamps. They can go out in the day, are not affected by holy water or garlic or they live openly among humans. This book however, is a classic vampire story. The vampires in this book are dark and are susceptible to the traditional vampire deterrents...Sometimes you just need to go back to the original. The ending is a cliff hanger and will be taken up again in a second book so be sure to keep your eyes peeled."

Virginia gave Robert's novel 4.5 Tombstones.

"I give this book 4 1/2 tombstones. I’ve enjoyed Frank Peretti’s works for years and I must say that this book ranks right up there with them. I haven’t sat down in a good long while and enjoyed a Christian novel. The Angelic Prophecy was well written and worth reading. The author did his homework and I think the he does a great job of mentioning the biblical references and making the reader familiar with the subject of prophecy, the Antichrist and the devil throughout the book. This book takes a different approach to the story of the Antichrist than the familiar Left Behind series and I found that refreshing. I also enjoyed the fact that while there was a hint of a love story in the book that it didn’t overwhelm the main plot line. And being a Christian novel, there is no adult content to be found, which may be slightly surprising considering Michael came from a rock star background. I look forward to reading more from Mr. Hecker in the future. If you enjoy reading a good novel of good vs evil that has Christian overtones, then I highly recommend this book."
