Raven Fire and Ice by Nita Round

Raven, Fire and Ice by Nita Round is the first book in the A Touch of Truth series, and it has me eagerly awaiting the release of book two. The story is amazing, and I want more! The story opens with Lucinda Ravensburgh doing a reading on an object. Lucinda has many talents, but chief among them is the ability to get impressions and sometimes full scenes from an item.

Romancing the Inventor by Gail Carriger

Romancing The Inventor by Gail Carriger is a story I’ve yearned to see for a long time, and I’m glad Carriger delivered! I’m a big fan of Carriger’s other works, having devoured the books in her Parasol Protectorate series at an alarming rate. Those books are about as perfect as they come, except for one tiny little flaw, in that my favorite secondary character never got any action. That’s right,

Friends in High Places by Andi Marquette

Friends In High Places by Andi Marquette is the first in the Far Seek Chronicles series. Though at its heart, this is a story of political intrigue, there is plenty of action to keep the reader churning through the pages. All Torri Rendego wants is to fulfill her contract, but events and the Coalition government of the planet Newburg seem bound and determined to strand her in place. The last

Catalyst by Fletcher DeLancey

Catalyst by Fletcher DeLancey is the fourth book in the Chronicles of Alsea series. After not seeing much of the humans, Ekatya Serrado and Lhyn Rivers, who put the events into motion that introduced the planet of Alsea to the galaxy, we finally get a book dedicated to their story in the interim. Ekatya and Lhyn are back on Alsea for the first time in over a year. They’re glad

The Three by Meghan OBrien

The Three by Meghan OBrien is one of my favorite books. It’s certainly my favorite Meghan O’Brien novel (followed closely by The Night Off). If you haven’t discovered her work yet, you don’t know what you’re missing! O’Brien’s work is gold: well-written, interesting story lines that are usually a twist on what you’re expecting, and super-steamy sex scenes. The Three is unique among O’Brien’s works for a couple reasons. First, it

Wild by Meghan OBrien slider

Wild by Meghan O’Brien is a paranormal romance with a heavy emphasis on the romance. It’s got the sexiness we all expect from this author, but with a shifter and a wannabe serial killer thrown in the mix, it’s totally different from anything else she’s published. Selene Rhodes lives alone and stays away from people as much as possible, paying escorts to tie her to a table once a  month

Reintegration by Eden S French

Reintegration by Eden S French is the kind of book lesfic sci-fi needs more of. The richly-drawn characters run the gamut of the LGBT spectrum and nobody is left out. Lexi Vale, a cyborg with a smart mouth and attitude for miles is about to become the most sought-after person in Foundation, the slums surrounding a Codist enclave. She is the only recipient to have survived having a computer chip

the princess affair by nell stark

The Princess Affair by Nell Stark is the ultimate rich girl/poor girl romance with a royal princess falling in love with an American student. It’s sweet, fun, and has just the right amount of angst to tug on your heart without ruining your day. Kerry Donovan is a Rhodes Scholar and the only academic in her blue collar, Irish-American family. When she arrives at Oxford, she’s in her element among

The Night Off by Meghan O'Brien: Book Review

The Night Off by Meghan O’Brien is an erotic romance that is not for the faint of heart. But if you can handle BDSM that includes hard spanking, humiliation, and anal play, then you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful, emotional romance. Emily Parker’s life is regimented around working and raising her younger sister, and after four years of celibacy, she’s decided it’s time to do something for herself. After paying

Slow River by Nicole Grifith

Slow River by Nicola Griffith was one of the very first lesbian fiction novels I read. That’s probably one reason it’s stuck with me this long, though it certainly isn’t the only reason. It’s no surprise that the book won the author both Nebula and Lambda Literary awards. It’s a novel layered like a delicious cake of sci-fi goodness. At its core, this is a story of self-discover wherein the
