Combine this with the phenomenal Joey Hi-Fi cover and I was eagerly anticipating its release. In PEACEMAKER, De Pierres… Read more »

Mini-Review Monday – AGAINST THE DARK by Carolyn Crane

   Romantic suspense is not my usual fare.  That is unless Carolyn Crane is writing it.  I picked this one up simply because I love its author.  Crane has a distinctive voice and her urban fantasy series, The Disillusionist, is one my favorites.  AGAINST THE DARK didn’t disappoint.  The action… Read more »

I’m a big fan of this series and if I had to sum it up in one word that word would be “fun”.  Robson’s Weird Girls is pure action filled fun with some added sexy romance and a lot of laughs.  Most of all, what I like about this series… Read more »

Mini-Review Monday – Sleep with the Lights On by Maggie Shayne

    A scarecrow shaped as a guy in skinny jeans–God, I hated skinny jeans on men.  Of all the sights I’ve seen since getting my vision back, that one’s in my bottom 10. I have two words for you – Rachel De Luca.  Or is that three?  Whatever.  It… Read more »
