Captain of My Heart - Danelle Harmon

Captain Of My Heart by Danelle Harmon is an extraordinary historical romance.  Ms. Harmon has given us a book that is not only well-written but is packed with phenomenal characters.  Brendan is a Flag Captain for the King's Navy, he's shot by a jealous captain of another ship and falls overboard.  He resurfaces after a time as a privateer captain...working with America.  Mira runs a horsemanship school, when she's not sneaking away on her brother's ship.  Their story is action-packed and loaded with drama, humor and sizzle.  This is a serious historical romance but the actions and antics of Mira turn it into a totally fun book to read.  I enjoyed this book from start to finish and look forward to reading more from Danelle Harmon in the future.  Captain Of My Heart is book 2 of the Heroes of the Sea Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.


I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

P.S. I Spook You
P.S. I Spook You - S.E. Harmon This was a fun story that is equal parts mystery and relationship story. Rain is an FBI Agent who sees ghosts, and now everyone on the job, including his boss, thinks he’s crazy. Just back from leave, he is given a chance to redeem himself with a choice of cold cases, one of which brings him back to his hometown and Danny, the man he left for his job. Working with Danny brings out plenty of tension, and plenty of old feelings. Also along for the ride is teenage ghost Ethan and his commentary on Rain’s life, as well as his hope Rain will help him.

As Rain and Danny negotiate being close again while dancing around what happened, the cold case becomes hot, as does their relationship. Told from Rain’s POV you can’t help but feel for the guy. He just doesn’t know what to do about the ghosts that are always there – both literally and figuratively. There is snark, dirty talk, hot sex, danger and lots of unresolved issues. All that and a mystery that will keep you wondering up until an unfortunate TSTL moment near the end, but it’s still worth the read of what’s otherwise a very enjoyable romantic paranormal mystery.

A modern day take on Bonnie & Clyde...4.8/5 STARS
Infinity + One - Amy Harmon



Amy Harmon writes such indelible characters, I always seem to fall in love with them.  In fact, I don't know why I haven't read all her books by now.  Her pacing, flawless.  The feels, amazing.  My one issue with this particular story is the ending.  I would have liked it to play out differently, without the unnecessary bit of drama.


At the half-way point, I switched from reading to listening. I was hooked and wanted to keep reading, despite having many chores around the house, that I needed to get to. So I checked out the audiobook from my library site.  I have to say, Tavia Gilbert does some amazing accents (which I already knew because of The Firebird Series) Finn's Boston accent, was excellently done.  Bonnie Rae's singing…well…it wasn't that bad at all, actually.  She really brought this book to life.






Plot~ 4.5/5

Main Characters~ 5/5

Secondary Characters~ 5/5

The Feels~ 5/5

Pacing~ 5/5

Addictiveness~ 4.5/5

Theme or Tone~ 5/5

Flow (Writing Style)~ 5/5

Backdrop (World Building)~ 5/5

Originality~ 5/5

Ending~ 4.7/5  Cliffhanger~ Nope.


Book Cover~ It's decent, which makes me wonder why it took me so long to read this.

Narration~ Tavia Gilbert (for 2nd half of book)

Setting~ From Boston to California & several places in-between.

Source~ I Own Kindle eBook and Audiobook (Library)

The Feedback Loop by Harmon Cooper
The Feedback Loop: (Book One) (Sci-Fi Series) (Volume 1) - Harmon Cooper
Initially, I was drawn into this world that Quantum is trapped in. Every day starts off with yet one more attempt to kill him. He’s got it down to a T now because he’s stuck in this cybergame on some kind of loop. Life holds no more mysteries for him, except for the big one: why is he trapped here and how can he get out? This story definitely has elements of the movie Groundhog Day (which I always found boring) but luckily this story gives us just a taste of Quantum’s repetitive life before something new happens.
Frances Euphoria walks in, boobs first. Yep, her physical attributes are the first things we learn about and her skills only come on display later. In fact, all the ladies in this story (including a voluptuous waitress) are described first by their looks and perhaps, maybe, later by some important skill they have. After I finished rolling my eyes at this, I really liked what Euphoria brought to the table: A possible way out! Quantum will do nearly anything at this point to escape this personal hell.
The plot thickens as Quantum tries harder and harder to escape. He had slipped into a kind of complacency but now as he pushes back against the Loop, more and more deadly things and characters are set against him. There is also an unexpected ally.
Just as I was getting sucked into this tale, we neared the end. Things felt a little rushed towards the end and I wanted more out of Euphoria. While Quantum was surprised by who was behind his imprisonment, it wasn’t a surprise to me. 3.5/5 stars.
The Narration: Jeff Hays never disappoints. All of his character voices were distinct and his female voices are excellent. Also, his enthusiasm for this story came through in his performance. I liked his grumbly voice for Quantum and his ticked off voice for Euphoria. 5/5 stars.
I won a free copy of this book. My opinions are solely my own.
