Awesome Historical Romance
The Gambler Wagers Her Baron - Christina McKnight

The Gambler Wagers Her Baron is another fantastic historical romance from Christina McKnight.  Ms. McKnight gives us a well-written book with two flawed main characters that the reader can't help but love.  Payton, with her penchant for gambling and Damon, living in misery after his wife's death, come together and bring us a story that is loaded with drama, humor, spice and a bit of suspense.  The characters in this book are outstanding and my favorite part of the book.  I enjoyed reading The Gambler Wagers Her Baron and look forward to my next book by Christina McKnight.  The Gambler Wagers Her Baron is book 4 of the Craven House Series but can be read as a standalone.

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

The Gambler Wagers Her Baron (Craven House Book 4) by Christina McKnight
The Gambler Wagers Her Baron - Christina McKnight

 

Payton is tired of being tied down by scandal. Deciding to break free could be the best decision she's ever made or the worst mistake of her life. Damon comes into her life at a time when her world is falling apart. He lost his heart a long time ago. Death has a way of taking the light out of a person. When Payton comes into his world, she starts to melt the ice around his heart. She becomes the glue that holds his family together and the spirit that reawakens his soul. McKnight enthralls with her tales of courageous heroines and brooding heroes. Hidden within that tried and true formula is a tale of love, built on hope, rescued by faith. The Gambler Wagers Her Baron is a sure bet.

Beyond the Empire by K. B. Wagers - My Thoughts
Beyond the Empire - K.B. Wagers

I actually finished this book 2 days ago, but I've been unable to even think about putting my thoughts down until now.  And even now, I know I'm not going to do it justice. 

I loved the book and the loved the series!  I just clicked with the characters.  Or they clicked with me... whatever.  *LOL*  I'm pretty sure there might be people out there who think Hail, the gunrunner empress, is too perfect, but you know what?  She's like my superhero.  Yes, she's one of the best gunrunners in the galaxy and you don't get to be that without being pretty damned good at all facets leading, fighting, learning, listening, plotting... well, you get my drift.  So Hail Bristol is basically my Batman.  :)   And you know what else?  She's not an uberly-gifted teenager, she's almost 40 years old.  Life has battered her around some. Her knowledge and abilities, while some of it is ingrained, a lot of it has also been learned and tried in a cauldron of fire.  Anyway... yes, she is my hero. 

The action in this last book of the trilogy is pretty much nonstop and the surprises keep on coming as Hail, Emmory, Zin and the gang fight to regain the Indranan throne.  People die.  And sometimes they die in a most awful manner, but such is the way of war.  Even as I was cursing the author, weeping, I knew it was something that had to happen. 

There are some quite times thought.  Scenes where Hail tries to come to terms with the loyalties and expectations of her people, of her found family and even of herself.  Scenes also, where she shares intimate moments with those closest to her, and we get to see the affection and love between them.  It's like... so... I've been watching the Olympic figure skating like a good Canadian, and cheering on Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir as they won their gold medal, all the while listening to all the speculation about their relationship and are they a couple or not.  So... I watch Tess and Scott and I see Hail and her Ekam, her head bodyguard, Emmory.  It's a deep connection, it's love, it's true kindred spiritness.  They're not a couple - that's Emmory and Zin, thank you very much (and how I wish we could have some stories about their adventures as Trackers.) - but they are very much together, if that makes any kind of sense. 

Okay, so, yes, I loved this trilogy so so much.  It was so much fun, so much action, so much of all kinds of things I love in my books.  There's another trilogy coming in the fall and I'm really looking forward to more adventures with Hail, Em, Zin and the gang.  But don't let that deter you, this trilogy can stand alone, honest.  :) 

Oh, I loved it.  So much that I went and joined the KB's Patreon.  

 

(And thank you Renzii!)

excellent SF
Behind the Throne - K.B. Wagers

Princess Hailimi Bristol is the spare, she decides to run away and have an interesting life while also investigating her father's death. She becomes a gunrunner and changes her appearance. The story opens with her losing a battle and being taken by the Indranan trackers back to her homeland and the news that her family are mostly dead and her mother is dying. She's the last heir from her family.  Now she has to survive the random attempts to kill her and find out what's going on and try to accept that she's going to be in charge in a matriarchial society where there's revolution in the air, and another empire who have plans.

 

I really enjoyed it and passed it on to my husband for him to enjoy too.
