Lovable Christmas Angel by Mimi Barbour

Lovable Christmas Angel (Angels with Attitude #3) by Mimi Barbour ~V^^^^V
Parts of this story I wanted to call corny, remember though I am not a fan of angel stories. Leilani is over the top sweet and endearing, she never complains no matter how life beats her down and is immediately trusting of people. This issues I thought I would have difficulties getting past. I pushed through and found a wonderfully touching story with a holiday theme. The characters are well developed, the imagery is outstanding and the romance, though not overly steamy was still very sweet. I am not sure if I will read the other "Angel" stories, but I may see what other things Mimi Barbour has to offer. ~Michelle

Christmas Babies by Mona Rusk Reviewed

Christmas Babies (Holiday Babies) by Mona Rusk ~V^^^^V

This is a sweet romance. If you are looking for any steam however, you will not find it here. This is just a clean cut, holiday romance. The characters are well developed, the story is well paced and the concept is quite engrossing. I enjoyed this story quite a lot and it was a pleasant break from the sex overload that is quite common in Romance today. ~Michelle

Yule Be Mine Anthology Review

Yule Be Mine Anthology by Lori Foster ~V^^^V

This is a Christmas themed collection of short stories by Lori Foster. Overall I will say that I liked it. Her writing style, flow and descriptions were very good. I was just disappointed by the length of the stories, I would really have loved more. 

He Sees You When You're Sleeping
Booker wants out of his current relationship because he has fallen hard for his neighbor and friend, Frances. This story skipped the relationship building because the couple are already friends. That I think is what stumbled me, I would have liked to witness it first hand. 

White Knight Christmas
Officer Parker Ross hates Christmas, while Lily Donaldson, his neighbor loves it. Among other issues for these two is her hero worship and their age difference. I am not sure what it was about this one but something just didn't work for me. 

Do You Hear What I Hear
Sergeant Osbourne Decker thinks Marci Churchill is a kook, and he wants nothing to do with that since his last relationship. However is ridiculously attracted to her. She also wants Decker, but he fights it hard. Really this had more time to develop but again was lacking something. I am suspecting there is a theme of prickly men that annoy me. 

The Christmas Present 
Levi and Beth had an out of control weekend after Beth discovered that her fiance cheated on her. Since then she has been running from Levi, ashamed of herself. Levi doesn't want it to be over. This story was another hard one to get into. I was uncomfortable with the stalkerish behavior of Levi, the bases were covered with her family present and at some point I got into it. The other thing is I think this goes with a series I haven't read. 
Once again I will say these short stories were well written and have good flow, I just wish they were all longer. Overall a pretty decent holiday read. ~Michelle

The Naughty List Anthology Review

The Naughty List Anthology ~V^^^V

Naughty but Nice by Donna Kauffman- I felt like this is a short from a running series? The back story just felt like I was missing something and being brought up to speed. The story had a good flow and well developed characters, ,I just couldn't get into it. There really didn't seem to have anything to do with Christmas in it either. 

All I Want For Christmas by Cynthia Eden- I am really enjoying her stories. This one is about a holiday romance involving a couple who have known each other since they were young. Christie is a "good girl" and Jonah is a bad boy, together they are combustible. This is the highlight of the book. 

Tattoos and Mistletoe by Susan Fox- I can say that I liked the writing style, the flow and the characters were well developed. However I have to say that I didn't much care for Charlie (the female main character) she was very brash and hard to like. I was able to understand the reasons for her personality, I just didn't care for her. L.J. is excellent, a sweet nerd turned hunk. I love me some hunky nerds. LOL I think the romance had a nice pace and the sex scenes were pretty good. Overall I would say this was a little better than average story. 

Also as a whole the Anthology was pretty good. ~Michelle

I'm Your Santa by Lori Foster

The Christmas Present by Lori Foster 
Levi and Beth had an out of control weekend after Beth discovered that her fiance cheated on her. Since then she has been running from Levi, ashamed of herself. Levi doesn't want it to be over. This story was another hard one to get into. I was uncomfortable with the stalker-ish behavior of Levi, the bases were covered with her family present and at some point I got into it. The other thing is I think this goes with a series I haven't read.
It's A Wonderful Life by Karen Kelley
Playboy actor Jeremy Hunter has to try to live the life to learn and earn his next role. Along the way he finds out a whole lot more than he expected. This story was very sweet and pretty loosely a Christmas story though there were shades of it. My only complaint is the length, I felt pretty rushed., 
Home For Christmas by Dianne Castell
This story was extremely confusing. I found myself going back and rereading whole pages multiple times to see if I was missing something. The air of mystery is really just confusing and the flow was very rushed. I also didn't much care for the premise. Lulu and "handsome" are a great characters, even if I didn't care for their names, and they seem to have some chemistry. Really though the story could have been so much better. This one is my least favorite in the book. 

Overall this anthology is average. ~Michelle

A Vampire For Christmas Anthology


Enchanted by Blood- Laurie London (Sweetblood #2.5)~V^^^V
I have not read the Sweetblood series before nor have I read any Laurie London before, I walked into this one fresh. My first impression was, "huh, pretty interesting". I quickly marked the rest of the series to be read. I think there is some good potential there. However this novella kind of drug on. I felt like there wasn't any real dilemma to solve and the story was a little flat. Things jumped ahead to keep the story short and they felt like it took away from the story as well. Overall I would say this was OK, and I will still read the series, I guess it was perhaps a good teaser. 

Monsters Don't Do Christmas -Michele Hauf~V^^V

This one REALLY did not work for me. The vampire angst was way too high and the fall right into bed thing was just beyond believable. The characters seemed well developed and the flow was good. I just couldn't get into it, possibly the secretiveness of the whole story. I am not sure, it just didn't click for me. 

When Herald Angels Sing -Caridad Pinero~V^^V

Ugh, no matter how many times I try Angel stories never work for me. This one was no exception even if there were vampire pirates. I just can't get into an angelic romance. Immediately I thought I had read the story before, therefore I concluded this is an over done theme. After that I just couldn't believe the rest of the story or give a care as to any of the characters. 

All I Want for Christmas -Alexis Morgan~V^^^^V 

I think this was my favorite in the anthology. Della is a human diner owner, unknown to her most of her clientele are Supers. Eagan is a vampire detective, crimes in the area have brought him to Della's doorstep. In the course of the case, one thing leads to another. I found that I liked the flow, characters and the scene. This was my first Alexis Morgan story, I think I will try a full length. ~Michelle

BLURB:  The wind-whipped December sands of the isle of Kinloch invigorate Kira MacLeod as she sets out to tame rugged Shay Callaghan, a Scottish bachelor as wary of a wedding ring as a snowman is of the hot sun.

Blue Christmas
New York Times bestselling author Erin McCarthy

While a blizzard blankets the world outside, Blue Farrow burrows into the arms of her highway hunk at the No Tell Motel. Nice and oh-so-naughty, Blue and her man open up to each other as they keep the Yule log burning.

Snow Angel
National bestselling author Kate Angell

Snowed under in Chicago, free spirit Allie is trapped in Dutton's department store on Christmas Eve when the lights go off and our snow angel finds herself face to face with a dashing retail heir and her host for a night of winter wonder.

MY THOUGHTS:  Santa in a Kilt by Donna Kauffman
A Scottish romance; Kira MacLeod and Shay Callaghan, have had an attraction for a long time but are finally getting the courage to go for it. This was a MEH, for me. It wasn't bad it just didn't really get me that interested. 

Blue Christmas by Erin McCarthy
My favorite in this anthology. Blue Farrow hates Christmas and is trying to make her way to Florida, avoiding the holiday all together on a cruise. A blizzard and a car accident leave her stranded with hunky, Christian. He Loves Christmas and tries to change her mind about it. Honestly I may have synopsis-ed this wrong but either way, it was super hot and really sweet. 

Snow Angel by Kate Angell
Again another Meh story. Allie and Aidan met 3 years ago, had great sex and she ran. Now they are trapped together in a Chicago department store over Christmas. It was just not that notable. Could have been great but something just lacked for me. ~MICHELLE

Tasty Tuesday

Good Thing April Fool's Day has past, I would hate to skip Tasty Tuesday just to prank ya'll. 

Wednesday, March 27, 2013



BLURB:  The newest member of the elite Feral Warriors brotherhood, Fox is eager to prove himself on the front lines of battle against the Daemons. When paired with the legendary Ilina warrior, Melisande, he expects the fierce beauty to quickly fall under the spell of his quite considerable charm. Instead, he finds himself spellbound by a woman who's his match in every way.

Beneath Melisande's brittle exterior lies centuries of pain and a violent hatred of all shape-shifters—a hatred that slowly crumbles after they're caught in a deadly and cunning Mage trap and she glimpses a surprising depth in her far-too-seductive partner. Their survival demands unconditional trust—and their salvation surrender to a wild, untamed love

MY THOUGHTS: The reason I gave this book three stars was because of the side stories. I was far more interested in Kara being found and the situation with Grizzly. I haven't liked Melisande since the first time I read of her. That didn't change in this book. Yes I felt sympathy for her but the book failed to convince me to care about her. I also didn't like Fox from the start either. He was and is far too arrogant and just plain annoying. I hated that he called Melisande, "Pet" and pretty much everything else about their romance. It was just a gateway book for me, just a link between old characters and new. I REALLY hope the next book is more romance and less action. ~MICHELLE 

Tuesday, March 26, 2013



BLURB:  She could save the world—or destroy it.

Sixteen year old Evangeline “Evie” Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future—and they’re still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux.

But she can’t do either alone.

With his mile-long rap sheet, wicked grin, and bad attitude, Jack is like no boy Evie has ever known. Even though he once scorned her and everything she represented, he agrees to protect Evie on her quest. She knows she can’t totally depend on Jack. If he ever cast that wicked grin her way, could she possibly resist him?

Who can Evie trust?

As Jack and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have gotten the same call. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and Evie is not the only one with special powers. A group of twenty-two teens has been chosen to reenact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it’s not always clear who is on which side

MY THOUGHTS:  This book was REALLY hard to review. Here are my issues first and foremost. This is definitely a teen book. The characters act very immaturely and they thought patterns made me want to strangle them. Of course in the case of all teen book series, this has to end with a cliffhanger. That is my NUMBER 1 BIGGEST ISSUE with YA! I think these books could be ended better, all of them. My last thought was that I picked this up thinking it was Teen Urban Fantasy but it is really more of a horror novel. 

So setting my issues aside I will say that the story was pretty good. I found parts a bit slow and other parts vaguely covered. I was very lost until nearly the end as to why were had this other point of view. I will say that the way it was dialogued by the male character I felt very much like it was copied from American Psycho, Patrick, which bothered me. But back tot he point, I think the concept, world, characters and story have a great potential. I am hopeful that they will all become a little more likable soon and if Evie, is going to be the main character, she needs to toughen up. ~MICHELLE

Into the Woods by Kim Harrison ~V^^^V

BLURB:  For centuries, the woods have been a pivotal part of the wonder and danger of fairy tales, for once you enter anything can happen. Elves, druids, fairies - who knows what you will find once you dare step into the forest?
And now, New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison ventures into these mysterious, hidden lands of magic and mystery in her first short-story collection. Into the Woods brings together an enchanting mix of brand-new, never-before-published stories and tales from Harrison's beloved, bestselling Hollows series.
The tales her include an original Hollows novella, Million-Dollar Baby, about Trent Kalamack's secret elven quest in Pale Demon; two original short stories, "Pet Shop Boys" and "Temson Woods," that explore just what happens when humanity and the supernatural collide; and two novelettes, "Spider Silk" and "Grace," set in new worlds of imagination and adventure. Into the Woods also contains all of the previously published Hollows short stories - together in one volume for the very first time.
Step into the woods and discover the magic for yourself. Original.

MY THOUGHTS:  I read some of these anthologies in their previous releases and some I read for the first time. I am going to give a review of all the Hollows stories old and new but I am skipping the other stories for now. 

The Bespelled- This was the story of how Ceri came to be in Algaliarept's keeping for such a long time. I enjoy a peek into Al's mind as well as the little glimpse as to how it all went down. This was quite short and still enjoyable. 

Two Ghosts for Sister Rachel (Holidays are Hell)- This story gives us insight into young Rachel's family relationship. We see how she interacted with her brother and mother. We are also first introduced to Pierce, who has many appearances in later stories. The setting is Christmas and a bit whimsical and light for Rachel Morgan really. I liked this one.

Undead in the Garden of Good & Evil (Dates from Hell)- This story is an Ivy story, her life as an investigator with the I.S before she left with Rachel. Though I really am easily confused by the vampires in this series, I liked this story. The glimpse into Ivy's life and with her voice was very interesting, it really opens up a new level of understanding in her and Rachel's relationship. 

Dirty Magic (Hotter Than Hell)
This is the first introduction to the Mia, the banshee. She is struggling to raise her baby, Holly. Its really a rather sad story and to be honest it really didn't do to much for me. 

The Bridges of Eden Park (For a Few Demons More)- This was just a little side story of Kisten and Rachel together. They try to help Kisten's sister with an ex-boyfriend who is trying to get custody of their son. There really wasn't a whole lot to this story, just felt like a side note. 

Ley Line Drifter (Unbound)- Who doesn't love a Jenks story? This is merely a side story with some insight into Jenks beyond Rachel and Ivy. It was a fun story.

Million Dollar Baby (Pale Demon)- This is the story of Jenks and Trent going to recover Trent's daughter. The story takes place along side Pale Demon and is really more of a deleted scene. Nonetheless I felt that this story really added depth to Trent's character and was very heartfelt. I would almost say it is a must read. ~ MICHELLE

Lord's Fall

Lord's Fall (Elder Races #5) by Thea Harrison ~V^^V

BLURB:  In the latest Novel of the Elder Races, two mates find themselves on different paths, torn between their duty to the Wyr and the passion that binds them…

Before she met Dragos, half-human/half-Wyr Pia Giovanni was alone and on the run. Now she’s mated, pregnant and heading south to repair the Wyrs’ frayed relationship with the Elves. Being separated from Dragos is painful, but for the good of the Wyr demesne they need to figure out how to be partners—in more places than just the bedroom.

In New York to preside over the Sentinel Games, Dragos is worried about his mate, but knows that finding two replacement sentinels is essential to show the rest of the Elder Races just how strong and brutal the Wyr demesne can be. But as the Games heat up, Pia’s negotiations with the Elves take a turn for the dangerous, straining her bond with Dragos and threatening everything they hold dear.

MY THOUGHTS:  This book has REALLY high ratings and almost all the reviews are gushing but I have to say I am not seeing it.

Well after completion I can say that I found it disappointing. Pia and Dragos are not together for the first half of the book and then after that it was really just blah. There were two different stories happening and it was just not working. I could have really cared less about either. I really would rather have had more Pia and Dragos living life together, not dealing with everyone else. I also found the birth of "peanut" to be very short and not as good as it could have been. 2 stars at best. ~MICHELLE

MY THOUGHTS:  Exactly like the television program. I love the show, one of few that I actually make an effort to watch in fact. This book covers all the same topics and has the same humor. Notes and recommendations from show characters are also included. I can't tell you the number of times I laughed out loud. ~Michelle

Twice Tempted Available Tuesday


Highly anticipated break off series from Jeaniene Frost. I have been a Vlad fan since the first pages, hell since I was a pre teen. ;-) Twice Tempted comes out on Tuesday, March 26. I find myself torn though. On his own, Vlad's story was a bit blah for me. Perhaps its Leila. Maybe she doesn't do it for me. What ever the cause the result is the same, disappointed. I truly hope that this next book shows Vlad and Leila hitting their stride and giving us a new "Cat & Bones" to root for. Although I don't think anyone will ever be the same as those two. ;-)

So who is getting it?

Lover at Last, FINALLY on Tuesday


SOOooooo Lover at Last comes out on Tuesday.... not sure if I will be reading ti right away. It appears as though a whole lot of people got early releases on it for Nook or something, there are plenty of reviews online already. I was looking at one of JR's pictures and the book looks huge again. Frankly that concerns me because I suspect there will be a whole lot of other side stories. I am anxious for this book but I am NOT paying hardcover prices nor will I pay that much for it in ebook. At this point I am going to request it from the library and wait it out. I do have high expectations but to be honest the last several books in this series have let me down. I don't know, what are your feelings?

Edge of Dawn by Lara Adrian

One week from today the newest installment of the Midnight Breed series will be released. The Warriors are taking on a whole new look with the younger generation now adults and taking over some of the duties .After the Breed were exposed the world of humans life has become VERY much a different creature. The series is doing a huge time jump from the last installment, which can be a little scary to old fans like myself but I have faith in Lara. That said Lara Adrian was kind enough to send us an ARC for review, here is what I thought. 

I was hesitant to get too involved in this story, after all, the last Midnight Breed book read like an ending. Obviously, this book would need to read as a beginning of sorts, that was where it took some mental preparation. If you have read the previous books then you are familiar with Mira and to a lesser extent, Kellan. You will remember them as children, or in Kellan's case a teen. This story is twenty years later, and in that time a whole lot has happened. Some of which was a hard sell for me because time leaps can be tricky. I had a little difficulty seeing Mira as an adult at first. Once I got deeper into the story I was able to take the leap of faith and embrace the new Mira. The whole setting for the story may be the same but it has a whole new look. This post-apocalyptic Boston is very different from where we last remember seeing the Breed. In no way does this take away from the story it really gives it a grittier look. Along the way we meet the new generation of Warriors, with a few surprising twists, and a new more sinister bad guy. Yeah, forget about Drago, this sh*t just got thick. 

So back to my thoughts, I REALLY enjoyed this book. While it took me a bit longer to be sucked in, once I was there I couldn't wait to see how it all played out. I have to say, this has renewed my ants in the pants feelings for the next book. All I can say is WOW, what a fresh new beginning Edge of Dawn is for the Midnight Breed series!

You can pick this one up next Tuesday in the US. Do yourself a favor and check it out!

Happy Tasty Tuesday!!!

Legally Hot Anthology

Legally Hot Anthology ~V^^^V

Sheila's Passion by Lora Leigh- This has all the trappings of what you expect from Lora Leigh. The first 5 pages are a vividly described intense sexual scene. It ends in some high school type drama and proceeds from there. There were pages where I was on board with the hero and others where I was on board with Sheila but mostly nothing really stuck out as original. I gave it an OK rating but I don't feel more stars are warranted because its much like any other LL you may have already read.

Deadly Dance by Cheyenne McCray- This was a VERY sweet romance. Despite the length it was never rushed and though there were a few time jumps it wasn't disrupting. I liked how the romance progressed smoothing and slowly and the story felt whole. 

Caught by Red Gardnier- I don't know how I feel about this one. I kept reading to see what would happen but really didn't feel rewarded. The whole story is pretty dark and disturbing. Meghan came off as a little clingy and desperate and Cody was the typical "I'm ruining my own life and your for your own good" guy. It got on my nerves. The back story was pretty gruesome but definitely has potential I just feel like, in my opinion, it petered out rather than really exploding. ~Michelle

Lush by Lauren Dane


I was provided this book by Berkley Trade and NetGalley for review. 

A good story with a HOT cast. I liked the characters, the scenario, the flow and the sex scenes. I was a bit hung up on some of the details because I had not read the other books in the series. I went into this one actually not even knowing it was the end of a series. I think I will go back and read the previous books now. So the things that worked. The rock star life was pretty fun. I can't imagine its easy to be involved with someone in the spotlight. I liked how that aspect injected some drama into the relationship. It was nice to have the female character to not be the clingy one for once as well. So yeah I am giving this one high marks and putting it on my recommendation list. ~Michelle 

Covert Seduction by Callie Croix



I was provided this book by Carina Press and NetGalley for review. So with that said I can honestly say I really liked this book. The characters had excellent chemistry, the sexy times were outstanding and the overall story was well done. 

Here is the blurb: Navy SEAL Reid Galvin is back from hell and eager to find comfort in Becca Anderson's arms. He knows he hurt her when he cut contact during his deployment, so when his call interrupts her date with another man, he has only himself to blame. But he can't forget what she means to him—or the sexy email she sent him—and he won't miss this chance to claim her as his own.

It's been weeks since Becca heard from the man she thought she was involved with. So when Reid wants to take up where they left off as if nothing happened, she refuses. Then he rescues her from a first date gone very wrong, and she realizes she's not quite ready to let him go.

Reid and Becca have a lot to talk about, but since she's not listening, he's going to have to regain her trust another way—by bringing her most erotic fantasies to life. Making her surrender to pleasure just might be his most important mission.

There are so many parts of this book that I thought were well done, that I can't really pick a favorite. I will tell you that I am going to track down more Callie Croix books for my own personal reading now though. ~Michelle

Edge of Dawn Giveaway

If you are anticipating the next installment but haven't pre-ordered yet, this is your chance.

Shadow of the Moon by Lori Handeland

Shadow of the Moon by Lori Handeland ~V^^^V

Blurb:    The hero and heroine from the award winning novel BLUE MOON, Jessie McQuade and Will Cadotte, return in a short adventure.
Sent to a small Wisconsin town to investigate a sudden rash of insanity, Jessie and Will meet a mad scientist who has invented a new kind of werewolf--one that silver can't kill.

This is a Jessie and Will short. They are sent to Riverview to investigate "Boxenwolves". This has ALL the things you expect from a full length Nightcreatures Novel in a shortened tale. I enjoyed it and while it was very short, I didn't feel too rushed. ~Michelle

Night's Dark Embrace by Jeaniene Frost

Night's Dark Embrace by Jeaniene Frost ~V^^^V

Blurb:  Enter the dark realm of Nocturna in Jeaniene Frost’s redhot tale, where blisteringly sexy Raphael dominates the demons of a lawless dimension and tries to help a beautiful young woman avenge her cousin’s disappearance.

Note: Originally appeared in the Haunted By Your Touch anthology.

Without any spoilers I will say that this was very different from the Night Huntress series. I didn't much care for it, sadly. It read very YA and the main female lead, Cara, was so juvenile in her thoughts and behaviors that I wanted to strangle her. Once I got in far enough, to learn what Raphael was I think I started to figure out what it was that didn't click for me. Its some deep embedded dislike of his kind of Fae. Any-who, the writing was of course excellent, along with pacing who the character development seemed blah. Over I give it an OK rating but nothing more. ~Michelle
