I have big plans for the Labor Day weekend! My Kindle and I are cuddling up with the dogs for three whole days! Only breaks planned are to visit the ponies and to refuel my brain at a few of our favorite dining establishments. I also have a few reviews to write, and that’s it! I’m not doing anything else, except a few loads of laundry. Read more

Please give a warm welcome to special guest Deborah Blake. Deborah’s book, Wickedly Dangerous, hits stores next week. I’ll have a review soon over at Romance at Random, but until then, find out a few items that you will never find in protagonist Baba’s magical Airstream. I asked where I could get one of my own, too, so I’d be styling at the horse shows. Unfortunately, I think I’m out of luck. Read more

I am of two minds about Nightingale. I enjoyed this novella, but I would have enjoyed it better if I liked the heroine a little more. While I was finally able to cut her some slack, most of her misery is of her own making, and while past events are always viewed with 20/20 vision, it’s that murky, uncertain future that needs a lot of trust and faith that things will work out for the best. They didn’t for Jemma, and instead of a spoiled, willful girl, she’s now a desperate, improvised woman. Manipulated by her parents since birth, and now willing to trade her soul to save her brother from his own folly, she is forced to turn to the man she rejected years ago with a plea to allow her brother to live.

Valentine’s Day seems like a complicated occasion in Japan. It’s no wonder it gave Kyoko so much trouble in the 24th volume of Skip*Beat! Her interactions between the men in life are confusing to say the least. There’s Sho, who tromped on her heart but now reluctantly harbors feelings for her, and Reino, the lead singer of a rival band of Sho’s, who stalked her and now that he’s captured one of Kyoko’s grudges, is demanding chocolates made with “her true feelings” from him before he’ll return what he’s stolen from her. And then there’s Ren. Ren. Ren! The guy who has gone out of his way to help her navigate the cut-throat world of show biz, but does she give even the slightest regard for his feelings? No. No. No! Sigh. Kyoko, you need to worry more about the people who care about you because of who you are, and less about those who only want to manipulate you. Read more
