Saved by the Rancher got off to a great start. It’s darkly compelling as we watch brutalised Jenna try to escape the clutches of her violent and obsessive ex-husband. I found myself completely sucked into the story from the onset. The chapters whisked by and I read her escape and plight with fascination. In fact, the whole book was very readable, written in a pacy and easy way. It does centre around very violent domestic abuse and even the very first scenes are shocking, so it might not be for…

A Love Like Blood by Marcus Sedgwick cover

Opening with a flashback to his time as an officer in the Second World War, Charles Jackson witnesses a horror in Paris, descending into a bunker only to see a man apparently drinking the blood of a young woman.

Holding out for a Hero wasn’t quite what I expected after seeing the front cover, the cover kind of screams biker romance to me, which I have kind of developed a bit of a soft spot for. Also from memory I don’t think the hero rides a motorbike once in the novel. Non matching book covers are a bit of a bug bear of mine.
