Nocturne Romance Reads review of John Beachem's The Hunter and The Marked: Book 2 of the Lorradda Stone series

Dawn gave this novel 4 Hoots.

"I love it when an author can write a story that takes you to another place and time and John Beachem does just that. He is an incredible writer who gives you just enough imagery to visualize each scene...I really did enjoy the endless speculation and controversy, I also think this was a relatively smooth read."

Night Owl Reviews review of Sara Dailey and Staci Weber's Sinful


Kiki gave this novel 4.75 Stars and called it a Reviewer Top Pick! Excellent!

"This was a wonderful romantic story about a teenage girl who falls in love with the angel who is watching over her. The theme of good versus evil in this story is an old tried and true one, but it is executed with finesse by the authors, who add twists and turns keeping the story engrossing and fresh. The characters are well developed and Elizabeth is courageous as well as funny and exasperating at times...I really, really enjoyed this book and hated when I got to the last page. I wished the story could have kept going. It is definitely a keeper for all fans of young adult paranormal romance. I know it has earned a permanent home on my eBook reader. So, if you are into stories about tough heroines and hunky angels, both good and bad, then this book should definitely be the top contender for your next read."

Theresa Joseph gave this mystery installment 4 Hearts.

"This was a very fast and enjoyable cozy read. This is nothing I like more than when my mysteries come complete with realistic characters and a plausible puzzle and that is just what this story provides...I enjoyed the fact that there were so many suspects to choose from and that each of them had a valid motive...If you are already a Deputy Crabtree fan you will definitely like her latest adventure and if you aren't I think this story will make you a fan. This author has defnitely earned a spot on my must-read list. I highly recommend this entertaining story."

Elisa Rolle review of Susan Roebuck's Perfect Score

Elisa wrote:

"Perfect Score is a mix of a lot of themes, but in a way it's a story all of its own...The author uses 2 points of view, Alex and Sam's, and she is so good in doing so that they are completely different writing styles, as Alex and Sam are completely different men...The story is set in the '60 and '70 and even if it's a gay romance, or better, since it's a gay romance, the author had to take some turns in the plot that maybe the most romantic readers will not like. But thinking at the time, it was the only possilbe outcome; enough to say that she donated the only possible happily ever after to her characters, and if in the end they are together, what they had to go through to arrive to that was worth it."

Bitten By Books review of Jessica Palmer's Fire Wars

Gabby gave this exciting novel 3.5 Tombstones.

"...this reviewer found a certain enjoyment in seeing elves, elementals, jinn, seraphim, wizards, and other fantastical beings in Fire Wars...The individual beings presented were fabulous - the air elements were appropriately flighty, the fire elementas fiery, and the wizards hungry for magical lore. The settings, whether burning desert, icy north, or non-earthly plane, were also great in that they were descriptive and the reader could just about smell the hot sands or feel the bite of a chill wind."

Bitten By Books review of H.G. Martin's The Legacy of the Silver Scorpion

Jaded gave this exciting novel 4.5 Tombstones.

"I have read several short stories by H.G. Martin so I was very much looking forward to reading his new book. I often lose interest when a story shifts back and forth in time, but Mr. Martin handled the transitions beautifully with a tale that did not disappoint. As I moved back and forth through the life of the Silver Scorpion, I was riveted to the spot, anxious to know what would happen next. The story definitely lends itself to a sequel so I hope to see one in the very near future."

Musings of an All Purpose Monkey review of Marilyn Meredith's Invisible Path: A Tempe Crabtree Mystery

Elizabeth White wrote:

"Author Marilyn Meredith's infusion of Native American legends and traditions into the story elevates Invisible Path to something more than just a police procedural. The reader truly gets a feel for the balancing act Tempe engages in every day between her job as a law enforcement office and her Native American heritage. If you like murder mysteries/police procedurals but are looking for a change of pace from yet another one set in a big city, Invisible Path is a nice alternative with believable, well developed, sympathetic characters and a fascinating setting."

The Romance Reviews review of Susan Roebuck's Perfect Score

Rho gave this M/M suspense 5 Stars! Awesome!

"Perfect Score is a sweet M/M romance that will appeal to all lovers of the genre and will change the way that you look at gay romance novels...This non-erotic gay romance is more like a saga...There is little to no sex in the book, but it really didn't need it. There is so much going on in the novel; there are family secrets, corporate wrong-doings, alcohol abuse, unplanned pregnancies, and the list goes on and on. It really does have something for everyone, but underneath it all, you have two young men who are willing to risk everything to be together...I recommend this book to anyone who likes serious romance...at the end of it all, it left me hopeful. Hopeful that, with love, anything really is possible."
