William Shakespeare's The Jedi Doth Return: Star Wars Part the Sixth
William Shakespeare's The Jedi Doth Return - Ian Doescher

—O knavery

Most vile, O trick of Empire’s basest wit.

A snare, a ruse, a ploy; and we the fools.

What great deception hath been plied today—

O rebels, do you hear? Fie, ‘tis a trap!

~Admiral Ackbar, Act IV, Scene 3

 

Yes, good Admiral, ‘tis a trap! I was lulled into a false sense of security by the general awesomeness of Star Wars meets Shakespeare and everything was going swimmingly—until I was forced to picture Harrison Ford as Han Solo singing a jubilant love song. A trap indeed! Minus half a star for that!*

 

*Not really for that. I just enjoyed this slightly less than The Empire Striketh Back and slightly more than Verily, A New Hope, so I rated accordingly.

Review For: Return to the House of Sin by Anabelle Bryant
Return to the House of Sin (Bastards of London, Book 4) - Anabelle Bryant

Return to the House of Sin by Anabelle Bryant is book Four in the "Bastards of London" series. This is the story of Crispin Daventry and Lady Amanda Beasley. I have read the previous book (LOVED THEM!) in this series but feel this is easily a standalone book.
Each time I read one of Ms Bryant's book I think this is my favorite one but then I read another one which takes its place. This book has everything you could want in a romance. The hurt hero looking to get his revenge while fighting to not love again...but then you meet a women who you can't resist. But you try to keep your walls up but each day you are with her she takes one down. The heroine is trying to prove that she is graceful and ladylike but keeps getting into one ungraceful situation after another. Then when her hero tries to help her he keeps telling her he isn't a good guy but she knows different. They each have been trying to be something they are not and fix what they think needs fixing within themselves. But then they learn what they have been trying to fix within themselves doesn't really need fixing when they are together.
I so loved Amanda and Crispin story....and the bonus was the secondary characters. They were great and I truly hope to see more of them soon!

Release Day Review! Christmas Spirit (Return to Jenkins Cove #1) by Rebecca York
Christmas Spirit - Rebecca York

 

About the Series:

Return to Jenkins Cove

Christmas… Ghosts… Mystery… Romance…

Something evil lurks in the charming town of Jenkins Cove. When Sophie Caldwell devotes a room in her B&B to communicate with spirits, dangerous secrets rise to the surface, and the lives of three couples will never be the same.
Return to Jenkins Cove: Christmas Spirit... Christmas Awakening... Christmas Delivery... 
To get the whole story, read all three!

 

 

 

 

Michael Bryant hates people who claim a fake connection with the supernatural because his mom spent all their money on fake mediums in a vain attempt to contact his dead father. And as far as he’s concerned, that includes 99 percent of psychics. When he reads about Chelsea Caldwell’s supposed ghost sightings in the charming tourist town of Jenkins Cove, he books a room in her aunt’s B&B so he can debunk her fantastic story. But Chelsea’s not telling lies. A ghost really is trying to contact her—to get justice for hundreds of area murder victims. Against his will, Michael is drawn to Chelsea. Soon they are attacked by a mysterious watcher determined to stop their investigations. And because he’s fallen for Chelsea, Michael wrestles with the lies he’s told about his motives for coming to town. Worse, when Chelsea’s life is in danger, Michael discovers the only way to save her is to trust the words of a ghost.

 

 

 

Christmas Spirit is a fantastic story for the holidays, one where you can just curl up with a warm blanket and a cup of hot cocoa and get caught up in story full of romance and suspense.

 

Michael and Chelsea both are engaging characters that draw readers in with their holiday romance as both have to suspend their disbeliefs in order to push forward with their relationship. This keeps readers engrossed as they empathize with the characters while becoming caught up in the mysterious happenings that tests the couple’s beliefs.

 

 The suspense builds as Chelsea and Michael try to figure out why someone is after them and what the ghosts are trying to tell them. This keeps the anticipation building as the reader tries to determine the outcome as well and I have to tell you that it was I didn’t see coming. The story is well written and the characters are developed which made it easy to feel as if I was part of the town and I shivered with delightful chills with each ghost visitation.

 

Rebecca York writes some delightful stories and this one is definitely one of them as she brought Jenkins Cove to life during a the holiday season and I can’t wait to visit Jenkins Cove again and see if I can uncover more of the mystery.

 

 

 

Christmas Spirit is the 1st book in the Return to Jenkins Cove series previously known as A Holiday Mystery at Jenkins Cove.

Well this was one hella' good ride...
Return of the Chauffeur's Son - Tara Lain,Greg Tremblay

'Return of the Chauffeur's Son' was totally a case of 'right church, wrong pew'. While Tara Lain isn't a new to me author I've read several books by her and for the most part I've enjoyed them but this is only my second time listening to one of Ms Lain's books on audio and while the first one was ok at best. I seriously enjoyed this one from start to finish. I loved the story and with Greg Tremblay as the narrator well...of course I loved the it as an audio book.

 

Now about the story, Luca McGrath is the chauffeur's son and he's been away from his home in Napa Valley for quite a while about 8 years. He left to study culinary arts in Paris and then went on to make a name for himself in New York but it was also to put some distance between himself and James Armstrong...best friend and unrequited love...you see James is straight, so other than platonic...a relationship was never going to be between these two men. Having stayed away for eight long years Luca is finally lured home by the offer of what will become his dream job...and this is where things become fun.

 

Luca comes home to find that James isn't acting as straight as he always seemed but this is all complicated by the fact that Luca's finding that while he thinks he still loves James there's someone else who keeps drawing his attention...Dylan, Jame's older brother...yep, we've got an age gap here and for me it's all good because it's only about 10 years and I've never really had a problem with age gaps between 10 - 15 years. But even more importantly I loved Dylan and when Dylan and Luca finally get page time together both in and out of the bedroom...this becomes one hella' good story. The interaction between these two is beyond entertaining more often than not I found myself laughing and just giggling with delight at their banter.

 

I can't honestly say that I would have enjoyed this story as much had I just read the e-book. I'm sure it would have been close but I have to admit the addition of Greg Tremblay's voice narrating worked wonderfully for me and I was delightfully entertained. This one's more of a slow burn than anything and admittedly it's fairly light on the sexy times there's was really only one full on sex scene and it's well past the 50% mark so...slow burn and well worth the wait. It was sexy and fun. I'm assuming that the author was going for sexy and fun with these two men rather than the more common intense, passion filled first time sex scene and for me it was simply delightful. I'm not talking 'oh-my-god-this-is-ridiculous' here I'm talking two men who loved each other and were comfortable with each other and while simply being together made them happy, sharing the intimacy of love was for them pure joy. It worked, ok I really don't know how else to explain it but it worked and for me their happiness was palpable and came through so clearly in the narrator's voice.

 

'Return of the Chauffeur's Son' was a light, enjoyable feel good romance with a bit of restaurant intrigue thrown offering several hours of listening fun and leaving me with a happy smile at the end of it all.
