Science Fiction Romance:
Born of Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon – This is one of her first published books and is books one of a three book League series. The series has just been re-released. I wanted to see if I liked the series. I found the book to be OK. A lot of romance but not much realism in the science part.
Sparks in the Cosmic Dust by Robert Appleton – This was a great disappointment. I loved the start and the characters but it went downhill from there. By the end of the book I didn’t care if all the main character were killed. For me there was no spark anywhere cosmic dust or not. This was a free ebook from Net Gallery.
Queenie’s Brigade by Heather Massey – Heather sent me a ebook copy of her book. I liked the action and the theme. This is listed as erotica but most of the book is action and adventure. Captain Michael Drake has the last space ship left after trying to defend the Earth. He makes a jump that lands him at a Earth prison planet where Queenie is the boss. He must convince the former convicts to trust him and join in his quest to free the Earth. This is a SFR worth purchasing and reading.
Motor City Wolf by Cindy Pape – A good addition to this series. Someone is killing werewolves and Greg Novak must find out who. Fianna Meadow has been exiled from the Seelie Court and is now part of Greg’s world. The two must work together to find Beowulf, an werewolf-assassin. This is a good action/romance/adventure and worth the read. This was a free ebook from Net Gallery.
Gambler’s Moon by Debra Doggett – I loved The Prize, a SFR by Debra so when I saw Gambler’s Moon I purchased it. It was a good love story set in New Mexico. Gates McHenry has been attracted to Ave for over 80 year. However there are big problems. He is a vampire and she is a werewolf. Can they work together when both are threatened?
Serpent’s Moon by Thea Harrison – This is the third in the series and it is another strong story. There is not the humor that was in the first book but is still a good story. Near the end of Storm’s Heart Rune Ainissesthai made a bargain with Vampyre Queen Carling to save his friends life. In Serpent’s Kiss he makes good on that bargain and get more than he expected.
A Texas Christmas by Jodi Thomas, Linda Broday, Phyllis Miranda and DeWanna Pace – This is another book of novellas, one by each author and all set at Christmas in the same Texas town in the same year. All are good stories but as usual I liked Jodi Thomas’ best.
By Grace Possessed by Jennifer Blake – The second in the Three Graces of Graydon series. Lady Catherine Milton knows that the curse is real. Anyone who tries to marry her without love will die. When King Henry VII decides she must marry Ross Dunbar she fears for his safety. Another good romance with a well-researched historical background.
A Darn Good Cowboy Christmas by Carolyn Brown – Liz is a carnie and her wish every Christmas if for a house without wheels and a sexy cowboy of her own. Then her uncle offers here a house without wheels and there is Raylen, a sexy cowboy living next door. Can a carnie change where she get her wish?
A Death in Norfolk by Ashley Gardner – The latest Captain Lacey mystery. I still love the series and am again waiting for the next book to come out. Good as a stand-alone but better if you start this series from the beginning. The price is still right at $2.99 for the ebook.
