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. So, anyway there is a bike in the story, in the prologue but our heroine rides into town on it for her mother’s funeral. She…

The Ophelia Prophecy by Sharon Lynn Fisher cover

The Ophelia Prophecy by Sharon Lynn Fisher sets up a new sci-fi world with a dystopian twist, as humanity has created artificial intelligence with its own conscious thought. The book begins with heroine Asha waking up with Pax and his sister Iris, although she cannot remember how she got there, or why they would want to take her onto their ship. Asha is from Sanctuary, one of the last remaining human colonies which is watched over by Manti forces. The Manti are an engineered race of humans with insect-like capabilities,…

REVIEW: Rock It by Jennifer Chance

image

I have developed a bit of a soft spot for rock star romances lately, and Rock It looked like it would hit the spot perfectly. I mean who seriously has not at some point dreamed of their favourite rock idol sweeping them off their feet? The book itself had lots and lots of potential, but unfortunately I found that it didn’t just quite hit the mark. Which is a shame as it was one of those books that was really readable and the writing did suck me in. Our heroine…

Enchanting the Beast by Kathryne Kennedy UK cover

Another addition to the paranormal and historical Relics of Merlin series, Enchanting the Beast by Kathryne Kennedy introduces spirits and ghosts into the pre-existing paranormal world of shape-shifters and magic. Philomena Radcliff is able to see ghosts, and the book opens with her conducting a séance in the vicinity of Sir Nicodemus Wulfson, a werewolf visiting the city. He is impressed by her supernatural talents and commissions her to ghost hunt for him at his home, Grimspell Castle, where his brother is being haunted by nightmarish spirits. Phil agrees, eager…

The Wicked We Have Done by Sarah Harian UK cover

The Wicked We Have Done by Sarah Harian is the first in the Chaos Theory series, and I have to say that this has been my favourite book to read so far this year. The book begins with heroine Evalyn Ibarra, who has been sentenced to a one month stretch in a Compass Room, following her imprisonment for acts of terrorism. These Compass Rooms are new scientific advancements which can supposedly determine whether an individual is morally good (or evil), and thus worthy of regaining their freedom or being executed…

Box Office Poison by Phillipa Bornikova cover

The second in Phillipa Bornikova’s Linnet Ellery series, Box Office Poison, opens with Linnet facing a brand new case, this time more connected to the supernatural than before. With the emergence of ‘The Powers’ (vampires, werewolves and Álfar), humans were introduced to what goes on behind-the-scenes in the world, with the major players pulling the strings. This effect has been felt most heavily in the movie industry, as the beautiful Álfar, or elves, have been winning the most coveted parts in Hollywood, regardless of any acting talent. As a result,…

conning for keeps

Secret Agents, Marissa Jones and Trevor Harris, have a job to do. For one week they need to play an engaged couple while trying to find a way to steal a priceless cursed painting.

Marissa has a unique ability to under-go deep hypnosis and become a completely different person. This is how she has climbed the ladder of TRAIT (the secret organization she and Trevor…
