Review: The Lone Sheriff by Lynna Banning

 

Review:

The Lone Sheriff caught my attention because the heroine, Maddie, is a Pinkerton agent, much to Sheriff Jericho Silver’s dismay.  He’s having a hard time catching the Tucker gang, a violent band of outlaws with a long list of crimes to their credit.  Jericho is expecting help from an experienced Pinkerton agent, but when Maddie steps off the train from Chicago, he feels like he’s been blindsided.  No way can a city slicker lady help him apprehend the bad guys.  Sorry, Jericho, you are about to have your world turned on its axis.

Please note that this review was originally posted at Romance @ Random

May Contain Spoilers:

I enjoy Maisey Yates’ writing, and I have a secret fascination with sheikhs, so how could I possibly resist Sheikh’s Desert Duty?  While I did ultimately enjoy the book, there are two plot points that kept me from enthusiastically recommending it.  Instead, I say read it with the following reservations.

Review: Siren’s Treasure by Debbie Herbert

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I love books about mermaids, and I enjoyed Debbie Herbert’s first novel,  Siren’s Secret, so I was eager to dive into Siren’s Treasure (excuse the bad pun!).  Jet is my least favorite character of the three Borsage mermaids,  though, so it did take me a while to warm up to her.  She made some terrible decisions in her past, and they are about to bite her in the butt.  She has always felt like  an outsider with the merfolk, and her mother’s emotional distance left her desperate for acceptance.  She falls for the wrong man, giving her ex a powerful weapon to blackmail her with.  Regretful that she’s given him so much power over her, Jet fears she will never be rid of him, and that she’s put her race in danger of discovery.

Mini Manga Reviews: Catch Up Post

I have been reading a lot of manga, but I haven’t had enough to say about each volume to write up a full review, so here are some brief impressions, starting with a new imprint Manga Classics.

Review:

I haven’t read Pride and Prejudice, and somehow I have managed to not see the many film adaptions of this classic, so I was thrilled when this turned up in my mailbox. I was a little leery that it would be boring, as some other novel to comics have been, but I was pleasantly surprised with everything about it.  The art is lovely, the script is engaging, and I spent an enjoyable hour savoring Udon’s well produced book, and I’m looking forward to reading more in their Manga Classics line.
