Talk Sweetly To Me by Courtney Milan

Talk Sweetly To Me by Courtney Milan

October 1, 2014 Historical, Reviews 6

Well, it had to happen. I found the Courtney Milan book I went completely meh for. Is it bad? No. In fact, Milan’s Talk Sweetly to Me reminded me of Edith Layton’s beloved holiday novellas, despite having not a hint of holiday about. (For reasons I won’t enumerate, I was pleased… Read more »

The Hidden Blade by Sherry Thomas

The Hidden Blade by Sherry Thomas

July 29, 2014 Historical, Reviews 1

Strictly speaking, The Hidden Blade is not a romance. Sherry Thomas has put out the world’s longest prologue and I couldn’t be happier about it. If I’d had My Beautiful Enemy I’d have started reading it the second I finished The Hidden Blade. (Since it was 4:20 in the morning mistakes… Read more »

Free Fall by Carolyn Jewel

Free Fall by Carolyn Jewel

April 4, 2014 Paranormal, Reviews 7

Pity the poor novella that is meant to hook readers into a series. It’s judged not only on it’s own merits, but also on it’s ability to reduce a complex world into an appetizing bite. One misstep on either side and the reader is ready to bury it. With that… Read more »
