As a long time reader of the Mercy series I have to say this might be my favorite installment. While the book would be good on its own the real force of it is in its use of history and family relationships to make the plot the best it can be. I would recommend reading this series in order to get the full effect. This installment sees Mercy tested by having her mates ex-wife back in the Tri-Cities staying in Adam and Mercy's home while being stalked by a madman. Night Broken had a plot that kept me reading long after I should have been asleep but what I really loved about the story was the interaction between Mercy and her merry band of werewolves. The complicated dance of life that is threaded through the entire story that makes it wonderful, humourous and heart wrenching sometimes all in the same paragraph. I laughed, I cried and I closed the book with a contented sigh. Then I went back and immediately re-read my favorite parts again because I wasn't ready for it to be over. If you haven't read this series or just started the first book and gave up I urge you to give it another try because it is only getting better with each book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Weakest of the series, June 13 2012
Ce commentaire est de: Virtuoso (Mass Market Paperback)
I went right into The Virtuoso after reading both The Heir and The Soldier and for me it was the weakest of the series. We meet a new set of characters that may have appeared in the intertwined stories of the sisters but had not had significant page time in the previous stories. I still enjoyed it but I had many moments where I found myself pulled out of the story. I found the willingness of the socially high ranking characters to act as valets and lady's maids very odd as well as the hugging and affection between the men (all strictly platonic). I am by no means a history buff so the fact that I even noticed it and that it was enough to pull me out of the book are telling. I enjoyed Valentine in the previous books but in his story he did not feel the same to me, perhaps that was the authors point but I found it disorienting. I was no where near as invested in this book and these characters as the previous two books and I missed my old friends from the previous books. The series as a whole is worth reading but manage your expectations.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Worth a read, June 13 2012
Due to the fact that I really loved The Heir, book one in this series, I decided to head straight into book two, The Soldier. Devlin and Emmie did not capture me the way Gayle and Anna did. I guess I went in hoping that I would love it as much as The Heir and while it had all the right ingredients it just didn't live up to my expectations. I missed the extra family involvement that was in The Heir. The only previous character we spend time with was Valentine, his youngest brother. I loved Winnie and her antics, which added levity to the story, and there were a few moments that pulled at my heartstrings. Not as strong as The Heir but still an enjoyable read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gayle and Anna had me swooning, June 13 2012
It has been a while since a historical romance has captured me as thoroughly as The Heir. Too many times authors rush to consummate the relationship thinking that will prove that the characters are destined to be happily ever after but with The Heir you can actually see it happening one small intimacy at a time. There is no rush to the finish line just a slow build, a culmination of touches and thoughtful gestures between Gayle and Anna that makes you remember some of the reasons you may have fallen in love yourself a time or two. It is not always the grand gestures that win the fair maiden and Burrowes clearly shows us that with a book that I know I will reread again and again.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 If you are looking for a smart brave heroine Maggie is it!, May 20 2012
Forbidden Rose occurs prior to Black Hawk and I ruined the story for myself a bit by having read Black Hawk first. Not because it ruined the story or the suspense it was just that I knew some of what was going to happen with the secondary characters because the books have points of intersection. Maggie and Doyle are an interesting couple full of secrets even with each other. I love that Maggie is strong enough to save herself and those she loves. She never shies away from the hard things in her life. Doyle did not get developed as much as I might have liked but overall the story was very well done and I will be reading more from Bourne.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not a bad group of novella's, April 15 2012
Night's Darkest Embrace by Jeaniene Frost was the strongest, and also the longest, of the three novella's. Mara and Raphael were interesting together. As expected Frost writes a wonderfully brave and strong heroine and gives her a hero worthy of her. I would be interested in seeing more stories set in the world of Nocturna because I think Frost has only barely scratched the surface of what she could do with that world.

Mated by Shayla Black is the first Doomsday Brethren story I have read. I felt like I was missing a fair amount of backstory with regards to the whole brethren movement and the villian they are fighting. The story had lots of action and was fast paced. It did have a moment of sexual abandon during a high stakes moment that was totally unbelievable that took me out of the story. I plan to try another Doomsday Brethren story so the novella did it's job.

Darkest Temptation by Sharie Kohler is the first I have read of this author. I like Lily but Luc made this story for me. He is so strong and patient and so very lonely. This story was not long enough for me, I wanted more. I am already planning to add another Kohler title to my library so I can see what she can do with a full length novel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Enchanting, April 15 2012
A Week to be Wicked was totally enchanting. I loved being part of Minerva and Colin's romance. Minerva is a nerdy, independent scientist who desperately wants to be recognized in her field of geology. Colin is a rake putting in time in Spindle Cove until he can collect his inheritance. The directness of their interactions was a nice change of pace for a historical. There was no dithering and to and fro. They both knew pretty quickly how they felt and what they wanted it was just a matter of how they got there. I liked that Dare didn't dumb down Minerva and she was no simpering lady she was strong, outspoken and not afraid to take risks and that Colin loved her because of these things not in spite of them. Colin has his own demons and reasons for being who he is and it was sweet the way Minerva just accepted him as he was. A Week to be Wicked was humorous - I think I read most of the book with a smile on my face. Minerva and Colin's inner dialogs were wonderfully entertaining. I loved it so much I had to go back and reread some of my favorite parts because I just wasn't ready to leave Spindle Cove and Minerva and Colin yet. I can't wait for A Lady by Midnight which is Thorne and Kate's installment of Spindle Cove.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Hard to get into, April 7 2012
Ce commentaire est de: Storm's Heart (Mass Market Paperback)
I had a really hard time getting into the second Elder Races story. I liked Tricks and Tiago but I found it difficult to reconcile them together especially in a mating. I found it hard to believe that they had known each other for a long time and had worked together at different times but Tiago had never recognized a mating until she left the Wyr and went to join the Dark Fae. Perhaps I just don't understand the whole mating thing for the Wyr and that was part of my issue. The suspense plot took a long time to draw me in and while it had a satisfying conclusion I would have liked to see a quicker pace from the beginning. The bottom line was in Storm's Heart I just did not feel emotionally invested in Tiago and Tricks and that brought my overall enjoyment down. I would recommend reading the books in order as there are recurring characters and additional information in the previous books. I will try Serpent's Kiss and see where I end up.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I'm conflicted, April 7 2012
Ce commentaire est de: Sweet Addiction (Paperback)
Sweet Addiction had some really wonderful moments, snap shots if you will. Ren's turmoil, at various points in the story, were really well done. I could feel the conflict within her like a physical thing. The interaction between Lucas and Cole while they negotiated their way around each other was also fabulous, all that alpha maleness bristling between them. The dialog between Lucas and Cole was well written and was one of the things I really liked about Sweet Addiction. My issue was that I felt like *gasp* there was too much sex and not enough emotion between Ren and her men. The scenes were very hot, Maya does know how to write the smokin' good times, and there were lots of them but they were missing that emotional intensity I felt from Ren at other times in the book. There were lots of "I love you's" but I just didn't feel it, I wasn't convinced of the emotion. If bondage and domination are not your thing then you would be best to skip this Maya Banks title but for those brave enough, there are lots of boundaries to be pushed. As a Maya Banks fan I would not have missed Sweet Addiction.

Ce commentaire est de: Bear Meets Girl (Paperback)
I laughed. I snickered. I giggled. I got exactly what I expected from a Shelly Laurenston book. I would have liked more time with just Cella and Crush but I don't want to give up the interaction we see with previous characters in the series to get it. Bear Meets Girl really should be read in the context of the series and I would recommend reading the series in order to get full enjoyment out of the stories. Crush and Novikov manage to develop what could be considered a friendship and the interactions between the bear and the bear cat were some of my favorite in the book. Cella and Crush had a nice dynamic with their bantering but I wasn't totally convinced of an HEA by the end of the book. Blayne and Dee Ann also get considerable time in this story and it was humorous, as ever, to see all of the females interacting. Laurenston delivers an entertaining read that left me feeling pretty damn happy.
