Review: The Bounty Hunter’s Baby by Erica Vetsch

May Contain Spoilers

I checked this out of the library on a whim. So glad I did. This is a feel good romance with a pinch of danger. Thomas is a bounty hunter, and he’s after cattle rustler and murderer Jase Swindell. When he finally thinks he has Swindell captured, he has an unpleasant surprise. The murderer has a pregnant girlfriend who interferes with his capture, and then goes into labor! Poor Thomas does the best he can, but Anna, suffering from consumption, doesn’t live to see her son. Instead, Thomas does the right thing and takes the baby to the only safe place he knows; Esther’s ranch.

Review: How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days by Kerrelyn Sparks

May Contain Spoilers

I haven’t read Kerrelyn Sparks yet, so I was looking forward to giving How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days a shot.  Unfortunately, I was a bit underwhelmed. I found the book irritating at times, and the political structure made no sense.  And the Mad, Evil King – he was such a non-issue it was disappointing.  While he got his just rewards, it happened off-page, and justice was doled out by a secondary character. Disappointing!

Luciana is an orphan who lives on the Isle of Moon.  She and her fellow foundlings live a comfortable life in the convent.  The nuns earn money translating and selling books, which they are famous for, but Luciana and the other girls seem to have an idyllic life puttering around the beaches and playing fortune-telling games.  When a stranger appears, accompanied by a coffin, Luciana’s recent fortune-telling seems about to come true.

Review: Surrendering to the Vengeful Italian by Angela Bissell

May Contain Spoilers

Angela Bissell knocked it out the park with this story. Its multi layers kept me engrossed from page one. I enjoy second chance at love romances, and Surrendering to the Vengeful Italian delivered on so many levels. A touching exploration of the pain and guilt after the loss of a child, as well as the desperate need to keep a dysfunctional family safe, I could not put my Kindle down.

DNF @ 30%

I was just not feeling this one. There was zero chemistry between the protagonists, and Mason was a complete douche. After his rage at EveMarie’s betrayal was allowed to fester for 15 years, he has returned to victoriously snap up her family’s horse estate, which is in foreclosure. After the death of his horse trainer father, he and his brother magically because millionaires, thanks to his wealthy society mother, who died when he was a child. Now that he’s back, not having earned his fortune, he can’t wait to rub his wealth and power in EvaMarie’s face. The tables have turned! He’s the rich one now. Ugh. I hated Mason and couldn’t put this down fast enough. NEXT!

Review: Lord Sebastian’s Secret by Jane Ashford

May Contain Spoilers

Review by Poo Penny

There wasn’t anything in this book that was asking me to keep reading. The chemistry between Sebastian and Georgina was tolerable, but they are already betrothed, and they already like each other. The only conflict is that Sebastian first began to court her for her money, and then later decided that she was more than that, and has never told her the truth. There is no good back and forth between the two of them, so I was pretty bored. I liked Georgina’s little sisters, they at least had some kind of personality.

Review: Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews

May Contain Spoilers

Review by Poo Penny

Holy freaky moly can Ilona Andrews write a good book. First, they are SO SO SOOOO good at building chemistry and romance, and Curran and Kate haven’t even kissed! HOW DO THEY DO THIS TO ME. I am sitting over here drooling over Curran, and I do not do that often. And second, that closing scene! That was extremely sexy, and all he did was whisper in her ear.
