Nocturne Romance Reads review of Sara Dailey and Staci Weber's Sinful

Lora gave this paranormal tale 4 Hoots.

"Sinful is a great Young Adult paranormal romance for all ages...I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book. This story is heart gripping at times and I found myself rooting at other times. The connection between the two characters is solid and meaningful...The author's take on angels is refreshing and satisfying. I really liked the story as a whole and look forward to more from these authors."

Night Owl Reviews review of Susan Roebuck's Perfect Score

Talina gave this M/M historical romance 4 Stars.

"The author did a wonderful job bringing both topics to light while not chocking the reader on her view point. Which was very refreshing might I add. The plot is riddleed wiht many obstacles for both Sam and Alex to overcome and by the end of the book all the plot threads and story questions were answered, leaving the story on a satisfactory note...A very thought-provoking story. I'll leave the plot twists to you to discover...I thought the author's writing style unique and strong...I am glad I took a chance on Ms. Roebuck's Perfect Score. She took two very difficult topics, threw in a deeper topic of which you will read about with Alex's uncle and delivered a unique, yet very good tale."

Night Owl Reviews of Ingela F. Hyatt's Lord of Thieves

Christy Carlyle gave this critically-acclaimed novel 4.5 Stars and called it a Reviewer's Top Pick! Great job!

"Ingela Hyatt's Lord of Thieves is a passionate retelling of the classic Robin Hood story...One of the best aspects of the novel is that it is a true romance with a spotlight continually focused on the love between Robyn and Merrion. It manages to balance its other appealing elements of intrigue, mystery, and adventure without ever diminishing its focus on the intense attraction and love between the hero and heroine...Ingela Hyatt deftly recreates the history of the medieval era of Robin Hood and brings Greenwood (think Sherwood Forest) alive with familiar characters as well as new. The romance between Merrion and Robyn is the story's heart, yet the novel's other characters are intriguing and colorful, adding to rather than detracting from its swift pace. Thankfully, Ms. Hyatt has not just retold the same old Robin Hood story, she has invested the tale with interesting new characters and brought fresh focus to the passionate romance between Robyn and Merrion."

Coffee Time Romance review of Ingela F. Hyatt's Lord of Thieves

Regina gave this historical romance 4 Coffee Cups.

"I truly enjoyed reading Lord of Thieves. Ms. Hyaatt clearlyy did her research and brings the legend of Robin Hood to startling reality!..Another thing about this book that makes it a winner in my opinion is the well-drawn out secondary characters. So often, secondary characters come out sounding flat, but Ms. Hyatt's are larger than life, and I really loved that about this story. If you enjoy reading medieval romance that is based on facts then you do not want to miss Lord of Thieves. I for one am hoping for a sequel or two!"

Romance Junkies review of Colleen Helme's Songbird

Dottie gave this fantasy novel 5 Blue Ribbons!

"Hauntingly beautiful, Songbird is an entracing fantasy romance. Beautifully enhanced with an originally creative plot, complex and compelling characters, surprising plot twists, as well as, plenty of danger, intrigue, fantasy, adventure, romance and magic, this story is unforgettable. Readers will find it hard to put this book down, as each page draws them further into the story as they root for the main characters, Bran and Teya, who have a wonderful chemistry together. This story should be interesting to readers of various genres. I highly recommend Songbird to readers looking for a great read."

Long and Short Reviews review of Frances Pauli's The Dimensional Shift

Water Lily gave this science fiction fantasy 4 Books.

"The Dimensional Shift is a good book--quirky premise, great world building, interesting characters, nice suspense in spots, good fantasy/sci fi...I really enjoyed The Dimensional Shift. Ms. Pauli's descriptions brought this book to life...Chloe is so well rounded that it's easy to know what is and isn't in character for her. I like Chloe and am excited that a sequel, Aspect Ratio, is coming out in 2011. I'm looking forward to reading it."

Nocturne Romance Reads review of Kelly Lougheed's Cads and Cadavers

Sarag J. gave this paranormal novel 5 Hoots! Outstanding!

"Fiendishly delightful and horrifically literate, this is one of the most original, charming and compulsively readable books I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. The author has one of the most crystal clear, strong, narrative voices. If Jane Austen were writing as a member of the Addams Family about her experiences at a competitive high school, trying to get into Harvard and experiencing her first true amour with a vampire, this would be the book...Cads and Cadavers is satirical, whimsical, twisted and smart - I absolutely loved this book."

Long and Short Reviews review of Christine Young's The Wager

Camellia gave this historical novel 3.5 Books.

"The secondary characters, while important in the unfolding of the plot, pale in light of the strong personalities of Amorica and Damian, who both feel and function with extreme emotions that bring about hostile scenes as well as love scenes that take the breath away. The climax of The Wager, a terrifying experience, takes Amorica and Damian passed old negative emotions and clears the way for each of them to acknowledge true feelings. Some of the spellbinding scenes in The Wager squeeze out the last drop of emotion."

Long and Short Romance Reviews review of Michelle L. Levigne's The Wolf That Was


Lily called this novel a reviewer's Best Book! Excellent!

"Have you ever read a book that isn't really the genre you like best, but you'll give it your best try, only to find it's fabulous and can't put it down? I did and it's called The Wolf That Was. Ms. Levigne is gifted with an imagination that she has no problem conveying into an easy flowing, yet complex, story. The reader is immediately drawn into an imaginary but magical world and to the main character, Tirian, who believes that she has no magic despite being the daughter of a wise woman filled to the brim with magic...The author's descriptive powers are honed to perfection when all she needs to say about a character is that he "hid inside a deep purple cloak like clotted blood" and the reader knows just what this one is up to...The Wolf That Was will appeal to shape-shifter, fantasy-lovers and also to those new to the genre because it is just so well written with profound underlying themes. It was one of those stories you never want to end and so you savor each page slowly so that it doesn't end too quickly. I wish I knew that formula. I wish I were Trilian."

Coffee Time Romance review of Jeff Strand's Single White Psychopath Seeks Same

Danielle gave this horror novel 4 Coffee Cups.

"Single White Psychopath Seeks Same is a unique tale. I found Jeff Strand's characters to be quirky, zany, and creative to say the least. I really liked all of the adventures Andrew found himself in, especially as the book got closer to its conclusion...Throughout this novel, I was shaking with laughter or shaking my head at how incompetent the villains were, leaving me to realize how thoroughly I enjoyed reading this novel."

The Romance Reviews review of Frances Pauli's The Dimensional Shift

Bridget gave this out-of-this-world novel 4 Stars.

"With beautiful descriptions and a truly memorable cast, this is a book that will truly carry you away...I genuinely enjoyed this book...The secondary characters, human and otherwise, were delightfully memorable as well. I was glad that the residents of the Dimensional Shift were all fully-fledged characters, rather than stereotypical aliens, and I found myself caring as much for their well being as for Chloe's. It was a great experience to be so wrapped up in both worlds of this book, and I can't wait for the next installment of Chloe's adventures!"
