Review: Crossing the Line by Ally Bishop

Here we are another week beginning.  Today, I have another Ally Bishop novel for you.  This is the prequel to Inside the Lines that I reviewed a couple of weeks ago.  This is another sexy installment that will have you burning up the pages.  For my full review that will definitely start your week off on the right foot keep reading after the book blurb.

25708226Book Blurb:

I’ve never believed in love at first sight, which is probably why I write mysteries, and not romances, for a living. Besides, I’m too focused on expanding Elementary, a mystery dinner party business I own with my brother Noah. I don’t have time for romance.

When the handsome and successful Ian Crane books our services, I can barely keep my wits about me. He’s setting fire to all my rules, and I can’t resist his flames.

I don’t recognize the woman I’m becoming, but I don’t want to go back to who I was. There’s a part of me that can’t help wondering, what if he’s too good to be true? Because if he is, my heart will be nothing more than ashes.

Heat rating: Toasty warm, with plenty of flames


Ella is always the responsible one.  Her brother is the one that goes out and parties and has one-night stands.  Ella is focused on building her business.  That is until she meets Ian.  With one look at Ian she couldn’t focus.  Soon she is doing and saying things that she never thought she’d do.  She and Ian heat up quicker than she thought possible.  The one main thing is that he is a client and doesn’t want to tell anyone what they are doing until after his party.  Unfortunately, Ella’s naivete and Ian’s past comes head to head.  Can they get passed this hurdle or will this destroy their chances at a happily ever after?

I really liked this prequel.  I was a bit surprised that for the second book in this series it was a prequel.  None the less it was still a great addition to this series.  Ella and Ian’s story was so sweet and you really fall in love with these two.  It’s definitely different from Lux’s story, but it isn’t any less sexy or steamy.  This just has the added sweetness that Lux’s story didn’t necessarily have.  I truly can’t wait for the next in this series.  Ally Bishop has really become one of my fave erotic authors.  Her stories draw you in and won’t let go till the final page.


Review: Dragon Knights Axe (Order of the Dragon Knights #3) by Mary Morgan

Happy Friday!  Today I am totally excited to bring to you the next book in Mary Morgan’s Order of the Dragon Knights series.  Dragon Knights Axe introduces us to Alastair and his quest for redemption.  As always this is a great fantasy romance with lots of action, romance and a hot Highlander.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  I hope you have a great weekend and pick up a great book.

Alastair MacKay, a battled-scarred Dragon Knight flees to the sea to separate himself from his fae-given power connecting him to the land. But it is on land that he rescues a woman from a slave trader in Ireland. It is through Fiona he steps back inadvertently into a world filled with magic—taking on the role of protector and at the same time leading him on a journey to confront his greatest regret and fears.

Research assistant, Fiona O’Quinlan loves translating ancient artifacts at Trinity College. When she falls asleep on an archeological dig, she awakens in another time. She soon discovers a Dragon Knight’s relic has been entrusted into her care. Determined to return the artifact to the Great Glen, Fiona is unprepared for the danger ahead—losing her heart and soul to Alastair “Beast” MacKay.

Will their love be strong enough to soothe the beast and heal the man? Or will Death swing its axe, leaving them lost for all eternity?


Alastair McKay doesn’t want redemption for his sister’s death.  This is why he has taken to the sea.  His power lies with the land and he will avoid that at all cost.  That is until he sees the beautiful Fiona being sold by some slave traders. Together they must take his Axe to the Great Dragon and help Alastair find his redemption.  Unfortunately, Alastair doesn’t want to find his redemption.  But, something inside him is still drawn to her.  He resists her and when he makes a vow to her newly discovered brother that he won’t touch her or do anything that would disgrace her.  The problem is that Fiona is equally drawn to him and makes things very difficult.  But, once they can’t hold back any longer they find a happiness together they didn’t think was possible.  It isn’t until something threatens to tear them apart that forces Alastair to make decisions he thought he’d never have to make.  Can they find the love and redemption that is there or will Alastair choose to lose all that he has out of stubbornness and misplaced guilt?

As always, Mary Morgan brings us another fantastic story about her Dragon Knights.  I loved this new addition and continue to enjoy the romance between the two main characters.  She truly can write a highland romance like nobody else.  The characters are brought to life and the history is so tangible it makes the reader feel like they are there.  Not to mention all of her highlanders are hotter than hot.  Who wouldn’t want to go in the past to meet theses knights.  Overall, this is another novel by Mary Morgan that I couldn’t put down until the very last page was turned.  Even then I still wanted more.  I truly can’t wait for her next in this series.

She follows him to a ski resort in Colorado, where she hopes to get the evidence needed to put him away for good. But she didn’t count on her roommate being a distraction, because he wasn’t supposed to be her brother’s best friend.

Detective Logan Ford has denied his desire to take Elle into his arms since they were teenagers, but when his partner asks him to follow her to Castle Alainn to keep her out of trouble, Logan finds himself unable to refuse her. He agrees to help catch a thief instead of convincing her to pack her bags and go home. To make matters worse, he can’t seem to remember why he should keep his distance from the delectable, infuriating, independent Elle.

As always, this is a fantastic suspense filled romance.  Though this was only a novella you really get a great sense of the characters and the story is well-rounded and well written.  Elle and Logan have ignitable chemistry.  The romance and suspense are woven expertly.  The story keeps you on the edge of your seat.  This will have you enthralled until the very end.  Overall, I think this is another great story by Jerrie Alexander.  For anyone, who hasn’t read her books this is an awesome example of her expert story and character building.  You will want to pick up all her books after reading this one novella.

Review: Sapient by Jerry Kaczmarowski

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend.  Today I am bringing to you a book that isn’t necessarily up my ally, but I found I couldn’t put it down.  Sapient is a book about how even the best intentions can get out of control.  It illustrates how science experiments can take on a life of their own.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

25334953Book Blurb:

Abandoned by her husband after the birth of their child, Jane Dixon’s world is defined by her autistic son and the research she does to find a cure for his condition. She knows her work on animal intelligence may hold the key. She also knows that the research will take decades to complete. None of it will ultimately benefit her son.

All that changes when a lab rat named Einstein demonstrates that he can read and write. Just as her research yields results, the U.S. government discovers her program. The army wants to harness her research for its military potential. The CDC wants to shut her down completely. The implications of animal intelligence are too dangerous, particularly when the previously inert virus proves to be highly contagious.

She steals the virus to cure her son, but the government discovers the theft. She must now escape to Canada before the authorities can replace her son’s mental prison with a physical one.


Jane Dixon is determined to find a cure for Autism.  This is a cause close to her heart.  When she has a breakthrough she is ecstatic.  But, when the government and CDC come in and begin looking into her experiments she begins to panic and does things that are illegal and unethical because of her fear.  When it is discovered that her “cure” has mutated and is infectious and possibly dangerous things change dramatically.  How can something meant for good change to something so dangerous so fast?  It is the actions after that will change Jane and her son’s lives forever.

What wouldn’t you do for your child?  The character of Jane Dixon will resonate with all mothers.  Her unwillingness to give up on her son is what drives her.  This is both fortunate and unfortunate.  For it is this that changes her good work to dangerous work and becomes a threat.  It is her drive to save her son no matter what that changes everything.  Though this isn’t the normal kind of book I’d read, this really was a fantastic story.  It is one that is both based in reality and allows the reader to have an emotional connection with all the characters, even Einstein and Bear.  This story will really have you thinking whether something like this is possible and how bad this would really be if something like this got out of control.  Overall, I really liked this book and would read another by Jerry Kaczmarowski.

A Lady in Disguise

Desperate to leave her past behind, Claudine Valencourt is less than thrilled to encounter the one man she could never forget. Not surprisingly, gorgeous self-made millionaire Leonardo Barnett doesn’t recognize her when he walks into a sleazy Paris cabaret in the middle of her performance. He never took much notice of her in the first place, and seven years have passed since her unfortunate infatuation. No longer naïve about men, she’s well aware of his womanizing reputation, but when he promises her exactly what she needs—escape, a means of independence, a new beginning in New York—she can’t resist.

Despite her best judgment, she can’t resist Leo either. When the allegedly self-absorbed entertainment magnate surprises her with compassion, tenderness, and wit, her dormant longings flame back to life stronger than ever. But dare she trust him with her secrets and her heart? With adventure and exquisite passion come disturbing revelations and inconceivable dangers for a lady pretending to be someone she’s not.

A Millionaire’s Prize

After one woman’s treachery destroyed his future, it took years for Leo to rebuild his life and succeed on his own terms. It only takes a few days for a vulnerable young beauty with a heartbreaking voice to pierce through his cynicism and defenses. Her warmth and guileless sensuality reveal a protective instinct he never knew he had and a desire that was there all along. His self-restraint battles with his yearning to keep his precious discovery for himself, and he soon realizes the folly of promises he could never keep


Claudine fears she has shamed her parents.  That is why she finds herself performing in a shady dance hall.  That is when Leo sees her.  Unbeknownst to him he knows her.  Claudine fears he will go to her parents, but when she realizes he has no clue who she is and offers her a job in America she jumps at it.  While on the journey to America, Leo begins to see Claudine as more than just an employee.  As they grow closer and their relationship changes can Leo accept her deception and help her or will it all fall apart due to stubbornness?

This was quite the entertaining book.  I liked that it spanned the ocean and brought the culture of the times and two different cities into light.  It was also nice seeing Leo and Claudine’s relationship grow and change.  I also liked the elements of the seedier parts of life in that time shown a light on.  Bess Greenfield managed to weave a wonderful story that brought history to life and sprinkled it with romance.  Overall, if you are a historical romance fan you will highly enjoy this book with its interesting characters set in a fantastic background.

Review: Myth and Magic by Mae Clair

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a great weekend and ready to start another week.  I’m sharing with you this week a new book by Mae Clair.   Myth and Magic has a combination of mystery and romance.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  Have an awesome week ahead!

As children, they played games of myth and magic…

Veronica Kent fell in love with Caith Breckwood when they were children. As a teenager, she was certain he was the man she was destined to marry. But a traumatic event from Caith’s past led him to fear a future together. He left Veronica, hoping to save her from a terrible fate. Twelve years later, Caith, now a P.I., is hired to investigate bizarre incidents at the secluded retreat Veronica manages. Returning to his hometown, Caith is forced to face his nightmares—and his feelings for the woman he’s always loved.

Then one day, the monsters became real.

After the callous way Caith broke her heart, Veronica isn’t thrilled to see him again. But strange occurrences have taken a dangerous toll on business at Stone Willow Lodge. Forced to work together, Veronica discovers it isn’t ghostly apparitions that frighten her, but her passion for a man she has never forgotten. Or forgiven. Can two people with a tarnished past unearth a magical future?


Veronica has always loved Caith.  Caith left his hometown long ago amongst a lot of strife.  But, when strange things start happening at the lodge that Veronica runs for Caith’s family he is called back to investigate.  What he doesn’t expect is to feel as strongly toward Veronica as he did before he left.  Can Caith figure out what is causing the problems in the lodge and avoid Veronica?  Will the past collide with the present in a tragic way?

This was a really good novel.  The story of Caith and Veronica’s friendship turned more really added depth to a novel centered around two mysteries.  I loved how this book was written with the flashbacks to the one incident that changed his life forever.  All of the characters are well written and developed.  It isn’t until Caith’s return to his hometown does he truly develop and become more than his past.  Within the pages of this book you will discover mysteries and tragedies that effected an entire family.  Redemption finally comes to those that want it.  The question is what will happen before the past can be left there and one can move forward.  Mae Clair does another fantastic job telling a story with aspects that have you questioning reality and convincing yourself that it is entirely real.  I can’t wait to get my hands on the next Mae Clair book.

Review: Submission Moves by Camilla Sisco

Happy Friday!  Today I have a great MMA Romance that is reminiscent of Mine by Katy Evans.  The love story and action entwine together to make a book you won’t want to put down.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  Have a great weekend and be sure to pick up a great book!

25321449Book Blurb:

They have nothing in common except for one night in Vegas.
Rose Shannon should have known better. One look at the gorgeous and rough-hewn MMA fighter and she should have run in the other direction. Instead she gets into bed with him, and now she can’t get him out of her mind.

MMA fighter Niccolo Rossi is used to having women throw themselves at him all the time…until she comes along. A snarky feminist with a huge chip on her shoulder, Rose and her bafflingly infuriating ways should have turned him off completely. Instead he finds everything about her irresistible.

With the attraction between them too strong to withstand, it’s only a question of when she becomes his.


Rose has always been the practical feminist.  She is never out of control and a one-night stand would never occur to her.  That is until she meets Niccolo Rossi.  The handsome MMA fighter sweeps in and takes Rose to a place she’s never been.  It’s all perfect until it’s not and Rose realizes all it was was a one-night stand.  Four years later, Rose unwittingly runs right back into Nick.  Neither of them have forgotten that night.  Nick wants to pick up where they left off.  Rose wants to forget it happened.  What could two people who have nothing in common possibly see in each other?  Can they get past the past?  Or will their romance tap out on the mat?

This was a great MMA romance.  I loved the two main characters, Rose and Nick.  I found it quite interesting that two alpha personalities were attracted to each other.  It truly added a lot of depth to a story that could have gone cold.  Though at times I did find Rose’s over use of the feminist ploy a bit off-putting. But, she ends up redeeming herself.  It was a sweet story that includes the excitement of the MMA world.  With a dash of humor and a splash of steaminess this book really brings the full package.  I hope there are more coming from Camilla Sisco.  This was a great addition to the MMA Romance genre.
