Seduction of a Highland Lass - Maya Banks Excellent historical romance from start to finish. Didn't want this one to end. Cannot wait to pick up the third book.
The Fire Lord's Lover - Kathryne Kennedy I never knew silver-haired elves could be so sexy. Loved it! The heroine is charming. Her "dance magic" is unique and cleverly worked into the story. I didn't care for the ending, but it did fit into the overall plot. I'll be picking up the sequels.
Embrace the Highland Warrior - Anita Clenney More of the mystery from the first book is revealed! This series keeps on giving.

Shay and Cody are childhood friends that turn into a romantic couple. Love the "friends to lovers" stories and this may be my favorite yet. We also get to see Faelan and Bree again (our hero and heroine from the first book). Nice to see returning characters who help shape and enhance the plot.

I cannot seem to put down Ms. Clenney's books, no matter what page I'm on. She doesn't give you time to breathe. The action and intrigue are non-stop from beginning to end. Every character is richly developed and I can't wait to see what is in store for the rest of the clan. I hope this series runs for many years to come.
Awaken the Highland Warrior - Anita Clenney Couldn't put this book down. I adore the author's fast paced style. The dialogue flies off the page and the descriptions are quick, not bogged down. She leaves you with just enough clues to want to turn the next page. The mixing of genres - paranormal, historical, romance and mystery - with a side helping of time travel thrown in works!

Bree is a delightful heroine. Her inquisitive nature endeared her to my heart. Her bravery despite harrowing situations made me cheer for her. She drew me into her adventure.

Faelan is a hero who can get under a woman's skin - in a good way. His old world sensibilities collided with modern times to make for a fun and dynamic chemistry btw hero and heroine.

I don't give 5 star reviews often, but this one won my heart. Can't wait to read more by this talented author.
Stolen Summer - S.A. Meade I've never read a book in this genre, so I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the erotica M/M scenes. But, the description of the story hooked me in. I'm so glad it did. The characters are wonderful, the plot is intriguing and the romance is heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. I read it from beginning to end in two sittings. I just couldn't put it away. You won't regret reading this one and if this book is any indication of the genre as a whole, then wow!
Divergent  - Veronica Roth I commented earlier that first chapter started too slow, but it's the only time the reader gets a chance to breathe. Divergent chews you up and spits you out. If your heart's not racing by the end, them see a doctor cause you might be dead. Hunger Games move over, Divergent is the new kid in town, and Veronica Roth is not slowing down. Five stars!
Loving the Norseman - Kris Tualla I enjoyed the story, but the second half went on far too long. If he would have told her his true feelings or vice versa, it could have ended with a hundred less pages. Overall, however, it was a fun read.
Red Hot Fury - Kasey MacKenzie LOVED IT! Furies are here with a vengeance. Riss is a kick ass heroine ready to keep the peace between the world of arcanes and mundanes. But, she's no one dimensional cardboard cutout, she's got serious emotional depth and the scars to prove it. While her attitude might initially turn off some readers, her layers - like an onion - will keep readers engaged. I'm looking forward to future books in this series and can't wait to pick up book two, GREEN EYED ENVY. In fact, I think a trip to the bookstore is in order. See ya!
One Grave at a Time - Jeaniene Frost Love with the fire and passion of a thousand suns. :)
Mockingjay - Suzanne  Collins If I added up all the books I've read by word count alone, I would find that not a shred of space remained in my brain. Not one single corner would be empty. So, it is no wonder that I've found myself more than once combing over a book, only to get half way through and realize, I've read the story before. I can't remember all of them.

Yet, I can say with absolute confidence the Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay will never be amongst the books that fade from my memory. They are unforgettable. Katniss' survival instincts, will to protect her life and her loved ones, and unfailable perserverance will stay with me forever. I was, am, and forever will be entranced by her story and the larger human issues brought to life by the trilogy.

A Devil in the Details (Jesse James Dawson Series #1)

A Devil in the Details (Jesse James Dawson Series #1) - K. A. Stewart Jesse James Dawson is a tall, skinny (or as he likes to say, wiry) guy with a killer job. A modern samurai, he wields his katana against the soul sucking, lawyer-esque demons of Hell. Practicing the katas, following bushido, playing with his five year old daughter and being eternally grateful for his magically inclined wife are all part of his day-to-day routine. His quirky, spirited voice, written by the brilliant K. A. Stewart, moves the story along at the perfect action loving pace. Really with a hero like Jesse there is nothing NOT to love. Just don't call him JJ, you're not his 96 year old grandmother.

Thanks to Stewart for this story, may the series continue for years to come!
