I love Alegrias and this pair was priced at an extremely reasonable price, but I have wide feet and usually have to try shoes on. Because of the price, I took a chance. They were too small, but returning them was simple and nearly hassle free. It did cost me $6.00 but that's because I opted for the UPS pick up instead of finding and driving to a UPS store to return them....Read more
I love Jake! Sexy, witty, sarcastic, and willing to let a woman take the lead because he's going to make sure she never forgets he's a real man. From the suspenseful opening scene to the end, Bear writes a sexy romance that will have you laughing out loud and biting your nails at the same time. The awesome third book in her Deadly Sins Series is Bear's best work yet. And you don't even have to read the first two books to enjoy it. But why wouldn't you?...Read more
I don't know how she did it, but somehow, Calisa Rhose packed an entire novel in a short story. The characters were well-developed and believable and the storyline heart-touching. Definitely a character-driven romance, Ms. Rhose touched on the issues facing soldiers returning home from Vietnam during the late sixties. Sam's experience with "shell shock" aka PTSD broke my heart, and Poppy's reactions to his "fits" and "episodes" had me rooting for her from the beginning.
This wasn't exactly a sweet romance, but neither were there any sex scenes. So, anyone who enjoys a good romance from the sweet to the hot will enjoy this book. In fact, Ms. Rhose wrote one of the most romantic lines I have ever read: "When his head lowered toward her, she let her eyes close and waited for heaven to sink to earth and find her."
Doesn't that just melt your heart? It did mine. Kudos Ms. Rhose for packing such a big story into such a short book.
Bobby's back from Vietnam and finds the world has changed. He's called baby killer and spit on. But Katie understands and is willing to help him through the transition into civilian life after the most unpopular war in American history.
A short but sweet story. I read it in the waiting room of my doctor's office and was surprised at how quickly I was drawn in and disappointed when the book ended. Although it had a neatly wrapped hopefully ever after ending, I fell in love with Bobby and wanted to read more of his story. If you're looking for a quick read while having your oil changed or waiting for a hair or doctor's appointment, this book is much more entertaining than an old magazine. I enjoyed it.
Koontz has a way of keeping me up late. The closer I get to the end, the faster I read. This book was no exception. John Calvino is a homicide detective who survived the brutal killing of his family when he killed the serial killer responsible. Now twenty years later, another killer is slaughtering families and John fears his family is next. But is the killer a copy cat? Or something more terrifying and harder to kill?
What the Night Knows isn't just another horror story or psychological thriller. Through the main character, John, Koontz explores some of our darkest fears and spiritual beliefs and makes the reader question how we can believe in good without believing in evil. He shows the other side of the coin as well. If we believe in evil spirits and possession, then how can we not believe in benevolent, protective spirits?
Scary and yet somehow, spiritual. If you like Koontz, you like this one.
After psychic police consultant Becca Brandywine is shot, she wakes up in the hospital to discover she no longer has her gift. So, she retreats to a lake house in rural NC to heal--and meets handsome auto mechanic Mitch.But Mitch is more than he seems and Becca is more attracted than she wants to be. Without her gift to guide her, can she trust him?
Mitch knows Becca is hiding a secret, but he thinks it's the fact that her father is rich. Super rich. He has no idea she used to have amazing psychic abilities. And neither of them realize Becca's life is in danger because a psycho she helped put away has escaped. And he's looking for Becca.
This book was faced paced from page one. And the hero and heroine are both just so likeable. Especially Mitch who is completely adorable. The conversations between him and Becca are not only believable but so cute you just fall in love with them both. I also got a few chuckles from Mitch's wit. Love the antibiotic crack! And the villain is completely creepy.
Ms. Steele gives short snippets in his POV that show an amazing insight into his personality. There's no big backstory dump. We never hear if he was abused by his father or beaten by his mother, but we know what makes him tick. Part of this book read like a episode of Criminal Minds with a romantic plot. I loved it.
If you like romantic suspense, this is a great book to add to your collection.
Michael, Earl of Ramsgate is cynical. Margret is a rose smuggler and rumored to be a fallen woman.

But Margaret suspects Michael's motives,despite her heart's desire to trust him. As Michael attempts to convince Margaret his intentions are honorable, the two grow closer. Between the sexual tension, an old enemy bent on revenge, hidden coves, and smuggled roses, there's plenty of action and romance in this book. And, it's obvious the author understands the Regency era. She is true to historic detail without boring the reader....Read more
I've had this book on my ereader since it was released in June. I finally got around to reading it this weekend.
The story opens with a little girl getting an x-ray. She called the technologist a nurse--one of my pet peeves--but then, this story is set in New Zealand and for all I know, nurses take x-rays in other countries. The opening scene is also told from a little girl's POV, so she probably thinks of all female medical personal as nurses. But then the child felt the x-rays, and I thought Ms. Clark had lost her mind. But the writing was crisp and the pacing quick so, I kept reading. And realized Ms. Clark hadn't lost her mind. She had a unique and clever plot with wonderful characters.
Jenna Thomas is an Asian American with a gift inherited from her grandparents--a gift that grew from mutated DNA--a gift of affinity with nature, energy, and living things. She has the ability to connect with animals and adopt their abilities.The explanation not only made science fiction sense, it's told in a way that tugs at the heart strings.
Jenna views her legacy as a curse and it makes her vulnerable.She's been labeled a freak all her life so she avoids close contact with others, keeping everyone she's ever met at arm's length. But when drives up on a car accident, she risks exposing her gift to save a little boy's life. And draws the attention of off-duty policeman, Nick Hawke.
Nick is drawn to Jenna's exotic beauty but curious as to how she saved the child. What witnesses describe seems impossible. So, he decides to investigate. But Nick isn't the only one whose attention Jenna has attracted. She's come to the attention of a dangerous man bent on revenge, and he'll stop at nothing to use Jenna's gift to destroy a nation. And Nick will do anything to keep Jenna safe. But will her gift come between them? Or draw them even closer?
There's action, romance, and some laugh out loud moments that kept me glued to my e-reader until the very last page. If you're looking for something different but wonderful, you'll love this book.
