A Talent for Trickery by Alissa Johnson

A clever historical romance with a penchant for crime, A Talent for Trickery by Alissa Johnson definitely took me by surprise. Set in Victorian England, the opening of the book sees police detective turned private investigator, Owen Renderwell, make the journey to seek out Charlotte Walker – now Charlotte Bales. Daughter of the notorious criminal, William Walker, Charlotte and her family moved away from the city after his death in an attempt to build a new life and escape from his old foes. Owen has kept his distance from Charlotte…

Not So New in Town by Michele Summers

Having decided to take inspiration from the recent good weather, I downloaded Not So New in Town by Michele Summers from NetGalley and dived straight in. Although this is the second in the Harmony Homecomings series, it reads a standalone title and I had no problem getting to grips with the town and its characters. We are first introduced to our heroine, Lucy Doolan, en route to her hometown of Harmony, North Carolina, following the loss of her job and her boyfriend. Forced to take time out to rebuild her…

To have and to hold

A historical, western romance, To Have and To Hold tells the story of an entire town that chooses to uproots and relocate to the West. The book is their journey as well as a love story between the hero and heroine. As the story unfolds, we realise there is more to the relocation than meets the eye as our heroine Naomi is plagued by dreadful nightmares. As well as being a romance, the story focuses on the harsh realities of life in the West. I found the realities of this…

Flirting Under a Full Moon

You know when you pick up a book with lots of high expectations and realise too soon that it isn’t quite going to make it? Sadly, Flirting Under a Full Moon was just like that. I’ve read some of Chase’s Strange Neighbours series and enjoyed them and this new trilogy is set in the same world, with guest appearances from characters from the Strange Neighbours books. Our hero is Nick, ex-policeman, turned private detective who also happens to be a werewolf. Our heroine, Brandee, is a waitress and photographer who…

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 Magic Between Us by Tammy Falkner cover

After enjoying the first two books in the Faerie series, I was looking forward to getting my hands on book three, The Magic Between Us, by Tammy Falkner. The previous two books in the series were concerned with faerie women falling in love with human males of the ton, so I was interested to see how this book would turn out when the tables were turned slightly. The main character in this book was Marcus Thorne, another fae sibling of the Thorne family who occupies a difficult position between the…
