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.

A Venture of the Heart
A Venture of the Heart (Silver Bay, #1) - Amelia Judd,Karen Dale Harris

"A Venture of the Heart" by Amelia Judd

My Thoughts.....

I enjoyed this quick read where you found the characters well developed, defined and portrayed in this sweet romantic story. It was quite interesting seeing how this will work it all out for Pax and Sage as it becomes obvious that one will not be able to live without the other as fate will send them a olive branch. With both of these two main characters having their own issues will they be able to give into their true feelings as we find Pax is a 'risk taker and Sage is a rule follower and Pax's sister's best friend?' Well, to find it all out you will have to pick up "A Venture of the Heart" to find out how it all happens and how did the family play into it. Be ready for the twist and surprises that will keep your attention as you as turning the pages to see what is coming next.

Red Dirt Heart Imago (Volume 3) - N.R. Walker

Perfect crossover with all the fluff and laughs to be expected from these characters. Four stars for the story and and extra one for Charlie and Travis; I hadn't realized just how much I wanted to see them again.

Kill Your Darlings Yellow Game - Cause of Death
Buried Heart - Kate Elliott

I read Buried Heart by Kate Elliott to get the Run over by a Carriage card. The author's last name starts with an 'E' which is in the word 'horse'. This has already been identified as a cause of death in the Yellow game.

DNF after twelve chapters
Heart of the Steal - Avon Gale,Roan Parr... Heart of the Steal - Avon Gale,Roan Parrish

Responsible, disciplined William Fox channeled his love for art and his faith in the rules into being an FBI Art Crimes agent. Right and wrong, justice and injustice—the differences are clear, and Will has spent his career drawing a line between them. Maybe his convictions have cost him relationships, but he’s not willing to compromise what he knows is right. Until the night he meets Amory Vaughn.

As the head of his family’s philanthropic foundation, Vaughn knows very well that being rich and powerful can get him almost anything he wants. And when he meets endearingly grumpy and slightly awkward William Fox, he wants him more than he’s wanted anything. Vaughn is used to being desired for his name and his money, but Will doesn’t care about either.

When Vaughn falls back on old habits and attempts to impress Will by stealing a painting Will admires, their nascent bond blows up in his face. But Vaughn isn’t willing to give up on the glimpse of passion he saw the night he took Will apart. Before Will knows it, he’s falling for the man he should have arrested, and Vaughn has to realize that some things can’t be bought or stolen. Love has to be given freely. But can a man who lives by the rules, and a man who thinks the rules don’t apply to him, ever see eye to eye?

Heart of the Steal is a standalone romance with a happy ending. It features a Southern gentleman who thinks he’s always right, a buttoned-up FBI agent who secretly likes his buttons unbuttoned, and wall sex. And desk sex. And picnic blanket sex.




Wow, okay. There was a reason why I was a bit hesitant to get this book and it spent a few months on my Kindle before I attempted to start it and actually forced myself to get beyond chapter one. The blurb was pretty clear about unprofessional professional trope, but I suppose I hoped that the authors could write something that at least would made me swallow this trope. No such luck.


Will and Amory meet at the art related party which Will's sister Charlotte (aka Charlie) was hired to cater. This is Charlie's chance to get new clients, could be make or break of her career, so as always she insisted her brother should come ( and if needed to help her out).


Will meets Amory, super generous, very rich patron of arts ( he leads the foundation that supports many different projects) and lo and behold they have sex during the party amongst all the beautiful paintings - they are that attracted to one another.  Only we don't know yet to what extent Amory is attracted. Will especially admired one of the paintings and Amory wants to continue their um bidding friendship with sex, so what do you do when you want to WOO somebody?




Only oops, Will's profession is revealed, he works in the arts division of FBI and he realized that he now needs to go and arrest Amory Vaugn.


One guess as to whether he did. Oh he tried, but eventually one of them dropped his pants indeed, sorry I cannot be bothered to go and double check who.  It was so ridiculous I started laughing.


As I said, I expected to be bothered by FBI agent's conduct, but hoped to be convinced. What I really didn't expect is to laugh and roll my eyes at hilariously bad characterization of Amory. Tell me again, why super rich patron of arts ( he genuinely likes to support student artists and other people who struggle - not like his foundation is a fraud, he inherited it from his parents and spent a lot of time running it) need to have stealing business on the side? That's a serious question, because the character was giving me a whiplash.  He says he cannot call himself a Robin Hood because he steals for himself, then he talks about all kinds of things he could do and he does not have to steal for years.


So is that super smart and super rich genius thinks that if he met the guy for the first time it is totally okay to reveal that he is a thief?  Because Will gets it all right, was hard not to get it.  I just can't with this book.


Oh and hey, apparently since he can not steal for years, now he needed to steal two paintings one after another. Why?  I skipped to the end after chapter 12 and there was a monologue at the end, something about changing the world or art not being the art.


Just cant.
