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…

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 main character in this book was Marcus Thorne, another fae sibling of the Thorne family who occupies a difficult position between the…

Everlasting Enchantment by Kathryne Kennedy cover

Like the previous books in the Relics of Merlin series, Everlasting Enchantment by Kathryne Kennedy can be read as a standalone, without any prior knowledge of the fantasy world.
