Synopsis:

A Regency retelling of Sleeping Beauty... 
"I release you..." were the last words Rosalind remembered before her world went black. Stefan, the future duke of Montmouth, no doubt thought his words were welcomed but he couldn't have been more wrong. Oh, he was handsome as a pagan Norse god, but that was unimportant when her life as well as those of her family hung in the balance. 
With less than six weeks left, Rosalind has stopped believing in the fairy tale, the prince on the white horse, and the stolen kiss that would awaken her from her worst nightmares. Resigned to her fate, she waits for the inevitable curse to run it’s course. 
"We must marry at once!" Stefan declared, fully expecting Rosalind to be delighted that he had come to save her, but he was sorely mistaken. Rosalind was no simpering docile female; she was a fiery temptress with a stubborn streak only matched by his horse, Sa…

Magic Kiss (Hope Falls #11) by Melanie Shawn

Image
Available on
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Barnes & Noble * Goodreads
Synopsis:

He’d lost his best friend…  Logan Dorsey left the military and his job as an undercover detective, but he still couldn’t shake the nightmares that haunted him. The only thing that had ever silenced the horrors for the chiseled former Marine was the one woman that was untouchable for so many reason… 
She’d lost her husband…  Emma Locke wrote romantic stories for a living despite the fact that her happily-ever-after had been taken away years ago. The gorgeous, blue-eyed, twenty-six year old widow and single mom had nothing in her life to connect her with the love and heat she needed to write about. Nothing to inspire that kind of passion...except the one man that was off limits. 
They say time heals all wounds, but can it also be enough to grow new love? 
Review:
I really enjoy this Hope Falls series, love most every book in it, but I was hesitant to start reading Magic Kiss. Not sure why, but the synopsis sounded ju…

A blackly comic campus satire combined with a heart-breaking family mystery, The Falling Sky brilliantly mixes fiction and astronomy into a fascinating, compelling, and moving narrative.

Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Barnes & Noble * Goodreads
Synopsis:

A Lady is dead. Her noble line ended. And the King’s Reaper has come to reclaim her land and her home. In the marches of Aedaron, only one thing is for certain. All keeps of the old world must fall. 
Elinor struggles to find her place in the new world. She once dreamed of great things. Of becoming a hero in the ways of the old world. But now she is a Reaper. And her duty is clear. Destroy the old. Herald the new.
Review:
A Reaper of Stone was a surprisingly good read. Especially since it is so short. I didn't realize it was a novella when I started, but that didn't really effect the story. 

I was really surprised that a fantasy novel could be such a good read with so few pages. Normally I would have imagined that you need a longer story to be able to set up the world and everything, but somehow this one just worked. You get the information you need about the world and the people organically and it was a g…

Slave to Sensation (Psy-Changeling #1) by Nalini Singh

Image
Available on
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Barnes & Noble * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Nalini Singh dives into a world torn apart by a powerful race with phenomenal powers of the mind-and none of the heart.
In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of "rehabilitation" - the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was...
Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion - and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between th…

Red & Wolfe, Part 4 by Ella James

Image
Available on
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Return to Rabbit Island for the heart-pounding conclusion to Red and Wolfe's story. Don't forget your extra panties - but this time, you might also want to bring your gun. 
Review:
Red & Wolfe, Part 4 is the last part of the Red & Wolfe novella series. It was probably my favorite part. It was a bit more intense dealing with everything that is happening and Wolfe dealing with his past, and it was fun. 

This last section was not so much about the sexy times, but about Wolfe dealing with everything that is happening. Trying to keep Red safe and figure out how to do that with everything that happened with Cookie coming back. It was more intense than the other ones and I was just reading as quickly as I could to see what would happen. 

Overall this series was a fun read. Sure Red was annoying at times, she didn't always make sense to me, but it was enjoyable. It felt kind of like the authors first foray into bdsm writ…

Red & Wolfe, Part 3 by Ella James

Image
Available on
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Return to Rabbit Island with Red & the illusive Rafe for the hottest serial installment so far. I'd bring at least two pairs of extra panties if I were you.
Review:
Yes, Red & Wolfe, Part 3 had more sexy times in it. It was fun, but Red was starting to get on my nerves by the end of this short bit. It was just...she finds out some things and then was just all over the place. It was a bit..I just wanted her to stop, think, maybe ask him her questions, see what happens. It just bugged me a little bit. Still a fun read, but at least see what he says before going all crazy all over the place. 

Wolfe is still intrigued by Red, still wants her to stay for a bit, but Red starts having second thoughts. Does she really know who he is? Has he done what others have said he has? Fun, but not as good as the prior parts. Oh well, I still am eager to see what happens next, especially with the way this one ended!!
Rating: ★ ★ ★

Red & Wolfe, Part 2 by Ella James

Image
Available on
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Return to Rabbit Island for the erotic second installment of Red & Wolfe, the sensual story of exiled playboy James Wolfe and writer Sarah "Red" Ryder. This is an erotic fairy tale inspired by Little Red Riding Hood. 
Review:
Red & Wolfe, Part 2 was another quick, fun, hot read. Yes, Red is a bit stupid still (who goes out into the ocean when it is dark when you are not familiar with the area? The tides? Anything?), but I enjoyed it. 
This story starts off with a bang, and then Red realizing that she is a bit out of control and that is not like her. She doesn't know what is going on and needs to get some distance from Wolfe. She goes to explore her grandmothers place by herself since she needs some space. 
Wolfe is still intrigued by Red. He likes her and wants her to stay. At least for a bit. Though this ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, a bit of ah! What is going to happen next?!? scenario. I know Red is going…

With no immediate family to turn to, Red reaches out to her estranged grandmother, a reclusive writer living on an island off the coast of Charleston. Several days later, Red receives $30,000 and an invitation to visit.

"I'll deal with you when we get back to the house," Bear snapped, his words loaded with so many different meanings I trembled with both fear and anticipation. 
"You're going to deal with me?" I asked. "How are you going to deal with me?" My attitude and confidence faded with each word until the last was merely a whisper. 
"Yes, DEAL with you," Bear warned, suddenly pausing to take in my appearance. Slowly, fro…
