Rogue Be A Lady (Must Love Rogues Book 6) by Eva Devon
Rogue Be A Lady - Eva Devon

Rogue Be A Lady (Must Love Rogues Book 6) - Eva Devon 

Emmaline is a well known actress in the continent ready to debut in London, ready to show all those people that condemned her without cause that she’s a survivor, and ready to show the man that cause her demise she is better off without him. 
Edward cannot forgive himself for what he did to Emmaline. He knows she is what she is because of his twisted views on propriety and perfection. His family has tried to make amends but will she ever forgive him?
Sixth book in the series, it can definitely be read as a standalone. Even though it was a short read it still was satisfyingly romantic. The chemistry between Edward and Emmaline was palpable and their way to their HEA believable. While I would have loved it if the path to their HEA was longer, all in all it was a good read and I will definitely be reading the next book in the series and more from this author. 

**I received this book at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher**

Review: Maid of Ice (Blood and Silver, #3) by Shona Husk
Maid of Ice (Blood & Silver) - Shona Husk

Finley and Alina are part of an ancient magical civilization called Albah. Some call them elves, others call them witches, but in truth no one truly knows what they are or where they are from. The only thing they are certain of is that because their race is capable of creating evil creatures they are being hunted to extinction. 
This is the third installment in the series but it can be read as a standalone. As I started reading the book I had the impression that one had to read the first two books in order to get the gist of this one but as the story progressed it was pretty obvious that was not necessary. 
Finley is an adventurous and one could almost call cynical man that wants nothing to do with the magical family he was born into and couldn’t care less if they truly went extinct. The thing with Finley is that even though he gave up the responsibilities that came with being part of that family, he never gave up his magical gift as he always considered it an intrinsic part of himself. So, when he meets a long lost Albah that never before had the chance to experience life in the magical sense, he realizes what could be lost if all that magic is completely gone, and worst, what would happen to the family and friends he hardly gave himself a chance to meet. 

Of all three books this one is by far my favorite. Not only did the author tell us more details of the world of the Albah, their Guardians, Albanex, and Keepers; but the story also gave us a more expanded view of how they interact with regular humans. I also thought there is a bit more humor in this one but that may be due to the interaction between the two main characters (there is also more sexual content so, fair warning) who are young and free and trying to survive a fight neither one of them asked to be a part of. Overall it was a great read with a unique world-building, just as the previous two books, and I do recommend it to anyone that likes PNR/UF with a different twist.

Review: Tempting Danger (Retribution #2) by Katie Reus
Tempting Danger - Katie Reus

We met Alina and Andre in the first book (Retribution) when she and her sister were trying to avenge their parent’s murder. This book was not as fast-paced as the first book nor did it have any paranormal elements but it was still an entertaining read. It was cute to see the things a hormonal pregnant woman has to go trough and how the people around her deal with the situations.

The thing I didn’t like much was that I was expecting more of a struggle in the romantic department. It went from “enemies” to “I want you back in my life” in the span of a millisecond (not quite literally but it sure felt that way) which I feel didn’t allow me connect to the characters that much.

Pleasantly Surprised
Above All, Honor - Radclyffe

After bombing out with the last two books I bought from this publisher I didn't have high hopes for this read. I tried anyway and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. The book wasn't spectacular but it was okay.


Cam Roberts was part of the Secret Service investigative unit but a few months ago she was shot. Now she's coming off of her injury but the higher-ups have decided to move her to the protective unit and assign her the job that no one wants; protecting the president's daughter. Cam is not happy but she'll give the job her all just like she gives every assignment. I liked Cam. She's tall, slim, muscled, stoic, confident, and sexy. Cam is haunted by the event that caused her injury but she's ready to get back to her job.


Cam's job is Blair Powell. I have to say that I didn't like Blair very much and she never grew on me. She's perfectly beautiful, perfectly sexy, perfectly bratty, and completely self-centered. Blair resents having a protective deatil and feeling like she has no privacy as the President's daughter but really I wanted Blair to quit her bitching. Yes she's not able to do whatever she wants whenever she wants but Blair has it good. She makes a living doing what she loves, painting, and basically doesn't have any of the every day worries that most people have like, oh I don't know...how to afford groceries, can they work getting their car fixed into the budget, how to provide for their children, how to provide for their parents when they get older, will medical insurance cover this or that...so on and so forth. Blair constantly works to lose her protective detail and make them look bad. This so shitty of her on a lot of levels. First if Blair gets kidnapped it poses a national risk but Blair doesn't care. Second, by making the protective detail look bad she can ruin people's careers but Blair doesn't care. She just wants to do what she wants and damn how it affects others. She's ungrateful and childish.

In any case the whole book is basically Cam trying to keep Blair safe, Blair whining about the fact that people are trying to keep her safe and that Cam won't sleep with her, and somehow the two women falling in love. I definitely understood why any woman would fall for Cam. She was yummy awesomeness. Blair was meh but Cam made up for that.


All in all this book wasn't bad. It also wasn't worth the $9.99 I paid for it. I wish Bold Stroke Books would get their act together and stop charging so much for their books. It's outrageous.
